A Nobel prize for work that shows that humans are human - yay! Seriously this is great recognition that we are not rational beasts - and this is not all bad. See it - know it - get used to it.

Curious to see what he has to say. Maybe something from http://awhico.com?
Here is a link to a short video that makes some excellent points regarding Higher Consciousness: http://healthwealthhumanity.com/2016/01/higher-consciousness/
My one problem with the points presented is that it overplays the role higher consciousness plays in our appreciation of others and our world while underplaying its role in our appreciation of ourselves.
I loved the suggestions for homo sapiens evolution contained in this book. It brings together a lot of recent science in exploring the interbreeding of humans with Neanderthals and Denisovans in a way that no other author has done. Indeed it presents a challenge to the long standing dogma of the Out of Africa hypothesis. This makes our history much more understandable - albeit complex - than the status quo.
I hope that the author goes on to produce some improved figures to capture the developments dealt with in the book. It is a complex story that needs to be conveyed.
I think ninety-nine times and find nothing. I stop thinking, swim in silence, and the truth comes to me. ~ Albert Einstein
For science can only ascertain what is, but not what should be, and ouside of its domain value judgements of all kinds remain necessary.

Those whose acquaintance with scientific research is derived chiefly from its practical results easily develop a completely false notion of the mentality of the men who, surrounded by a sceptical work, have shown the way to kindred sprits scattered wide through the world and the centuries.
