3,000,000 BCE Overview of Hominid Evolution Including Dark Mothers and Later Migrations

INTRODUCTORY CITATIONS

Emergence of Human Evolution.

One African Dark Mother.

Three Million Years Ago.

In South Africa,

an ancient hominin stumbled onto a red jasperite pebble

weathered in such a way as to resemble a face.

He or she was mesmerized enough to make the stone a keepsake,

carrying it back to a home base several miles away,

where it was found by modern researchers.

Paleolithic hominins also had a penchant for collecting

fossilized coral, snails and shellfish.

(ARSL: 20.)

Ancient Symbolic Images.

A powerful mental heuristic design

to conjure a particular emotion,

a memory, an idea.

Rather than directly changing the world around us,

symbols change the way we perceive it.

(ARSL: 20.)

Migrations.

From their African homeland, humans have colonized

all continents and inhabitable islands,

from seashores to alpine mountains,

from high–latitude arctic tundra

to tropical deserts and forests.

(DH: 192.)

Single Species.

Today, the idea that all humans

belong to a single species is taken for granted,

and kinshipping is still used

to mark the outer boundaries of humankind.

(DH: 32.)

One Human Race.

According to geneticist, Luigi Luca Cavalli-Sforza

‘in the DNA, there is one human race,

and it originated in Africa.’

(AO: 1-2.) (PB; GE; GPL; GHD; HGHG; DEHE.)

KhoiSan, Namibia.

“We know there were multiple dispersals out of Africa,

but we can [now] trace our ancestry back to a single one.”

Joshua M. Akey.

(HWG: A1.)

African Dark Mother.

Not only were these true human Africans

the first to sail and use technology

but they also appear to have been the first

to venerate the African dark mother.

(RGS.)

Human History.

Migration across great distances

is one of the fundamental processes

of human history.

(DH: 192.)

Cradle of Humankind.

Primary locations include the

Gregory Rift Valley in East Africa

and the southern caves in the high veldt or veld.

(See below.)

Africa-Asia.

Out of Africa

vs.

Out of Asia.
