How pre-Historic human’s head became large
compared to Stone-Age Man
I am surprise to see a news article appeared today titled as “Earth’s earliest primate lived on trees, says study” published in The Times of India dated 21-1-2015. With regard to this I would like to explain why right hand became stronger than the left hand. Since, I‘d been a coconut tree climber till I was 22 years and found that climbing coconut trees with bear hands and legs was much more easier than walking on the stair case. After a gap of 40 years on 8th of Oct. 2011, I wrote a thesis on primitive people when I saw the article titled as “New light on human-like gait” appeared in The Hindu News paper dated 21-7-2011 which was published along with a photograph of a human foot about 3.7 million years ago. This thesis ran into 6 pages, now I want to split into two parts. First Part is displayed here connecting the two legs and two hands and why one hand is stronger than the other and the Second Part is about the Pre-Historic Human head ‘Why it became big?’ will be shown as a next edition.
After studying and comparing earliest preHistoric of human life style, now it is wonderful to know what your brain can do for you. A revolutionary change is bound to happen in the near future after I invented this Computer Medical Instrument which would help the brain to a great deal and a very great leap for Mankind.
In this paper I would like to convey about the brain action and the prehistoric of human life how they lived. Many scientists have expressed their views on prehistoric humans comparing with stable isotopes of carbon fossil found in Kenya, Ethiopia, Malaysia, Botswana Zambia Australia and Brazil where human ancestors were of Stone-Age human’s fossils. Some scientists have found evidence that human ancestors lived in Savannah like ecosystem (Wild Grass). But the latest report states that human like features of the feet and gait existed almost 3.7 million years ago and their brains were quite large compared to Stone Age and Modern Man. Another report also states northerners have bigger brains than those living near the equator. To some extent scientists are puzzled about the earliest prehistoric humans as well as Stone-age Man how they evolved and roamed. These material evidences collected from various places alone won’t predict what sort of life they were leading during the prehistoric time. Such as bones and stones and human like foot prints had given the clue that Man was a two legged animal and had a larger brain and never walked on four limbs.
One thing is certain, this prehistoric adoption of lifestyle had already taken shape in our physical body such as the brain's robust activity still existing which is unknown to man, teeth, eyes further their the feet are not like the apes but inwardly curved and later it led the right hand to become stronger than the left hand. Further, northerner’s human have bigger brains and eyes than those lived near the equator is another clue for the evolution of Man. So we have to make some assumption on these grounds rather than with the external material evidences to make what sort of life the prehistoric humans lived before Stone-age Man. It is difficult for any scientist to extract information directly from his own brain for which they have no access to retrieve the information from internal action. These internal actions lead to physical action get changed to healthier conditions such as running on legs without much panting for breath and there is no stress or strain or fatigue even at the fag end of the day makes the body as fresh as ever. This rapid action of the brain strengthens the physical conditions of the body through the close proximity of the vision in climbing trees made both their hands equally strong that gave them more freshness for the body. Whereas for the Stone-Age Man one hand is comparatively weak than the other hand.
This is how the earliest primitive humans who lived about 3.7 million years ago or beyond were not basically hunters but out of fear they habitually became tree climbers. This had led their shoulder muscles virtually rigid and the hands were not meant for throwing stones made them lame in their action and the same is for the Apes. So pre-Historic humans were not hunters but used to climb trees often for their food that made their heads big compared to modern man. And this is the reason that our teeth formation had led to the habit of eating vegetation foods. Therefore the teeth formation continued to be the same even for Stone-age Man who lived in grasslands made him a hunter for animal food. It is only during Stone-Age period from 2.6 million years ago onward the Stone age Man habitually became a hunter who had used the right hand to throw stones which made his right hand more accurate and strong to kill animals as well as for defence purpose they had used the right hand more often to become stronger than the left hand and for the left hander's it is other way round. This was not there for earlier prehistoric humans whose hands were equally strong like the right hand and they never distinguished which hand is stronger and the same is applied for his two legs for which he/she made a living by climbing trees.
Since, my thesis runs into pages I’ll tell ‘why the head became big’ in my second edition for you all to know how the evolution had taken place.
