Introduction
I have faith in factually verifiable science specialising in planetary human ecology. I never had enough time nor an environment to obtain much of a formal education but recommend formal study. I have a factualist belief system. I exist therefore I am, I think therefore I physically virtually verbalize mentally. In combination, in scientific pantheism I reconcile with atheists & believers in God. Relative to demonstrable factualism, atheism is a type of non denotative apophatism for me.

Human bipedalism evolving through dragging branches as building material or tools

Over half the world’s population lives in urban areas and this is set to increase. Food systems can be perfectly blended in with the wild natural environment. Using the lessons learned from agroecological design, there are pre-set templates on how to create self-sustaining food systems on demand. The information for their tailoring to localised s...

Magnetoreception is not restricted to prokaryotic bacteria but also occurs in eukaryotic organisms including fish and mammals, intimating that it developed at an early stage in the evolution of all living things.3 Speculating on the earliest of geological times, what if magnetism not only evolved in some universal common ancestor (LUCA) but was its...

Here given is a thought experiment speculating on if this universe is part of a Multiverse and everywhere wherein subject to the same laws of physics, did spacetime exist before the Big Bang singularity? Adding upon that, is this Universe crunching into yet another universe rather than oscillating with endlessly crunching back onto itself and then...

The aim of this piece is to show how anglicisation and other supranational factors are common to Gibraltar and el Campo de Gibraltar along with the rest of Spain. In combination these factors coalesce in such a manner that they could be harnessed to finally resolve any Spanish irredentist claims on Gibraltar’s sovereignty. La Linea de El Corte Ing...

This piece targets two major periods of notable hominin technological development, the Lower Paleolithic to Middle Paleolithic and Middle Paleolithic to Upper Paleolithic, both fast paced technological transitions for which there is evidence for the two at the continental crossroads of The Levant. This might be no coincidence because of the Levant...

A major quagmire at the Calpe 2018 conference had to do with how genetically differentiated human populations of the Upper Palaeolithic are defined. There are three designations to deal with that are causing this morass, Neanderthals (Or equally other introgressive archaic humans), Homo sapiens and Modern Humans. A major reason for this dilemma in...

Article
Full-text available
Did the evolution of bipedalism evolve from and co-evolve with brachiation, because the action of swinging by the arms from a branch as a means of locomotion in the treetops was redirected by balancing the body upright on the ground on two legs? Were these kept in balance by handling the weight of a disarticulated branch, but the held branch itself...

My notes after another great read of Daniel Dennett, namely his Breaking The Spell, religion as a natural phenomenon. I rarely get positively moved by a quote from the Bible, but I could not escape being so by reading from John 8:44 the extract ”The Father of Lies.”
