On a scale of 1-10, how euphoric would you say you are, dent?

From my perspective it looks like a 12.

Coincidentally, that's also probably the number of dicks you've sucked today.

I was just reading a pretty interesting article on the average human brain actually decreasing in mass over the past 20,000 years. One of the theories suggests that humans have in essence "domesticated" ourselves. There is evidence that primitive civilizations were very liberal with the use of capital punishment and this eventually lead to them basically killing more of the "dickheads" off leaving the more docile to reproduce. Docility is prevalent in every domesticated species. One of the other changes observed in EVERY DOMESTICATED SPECIES is a smaller brain to body ratio than its ancestors, typically resulting in dumber animals.
And this.

You're right. We're too docile.

Seems like a double edged sword. If we're not docile, we'll freely kill the dickheads and become more docile. Once we're docile, we won't kill as many dickheads and will remain at that level of docility.

A more interesting study would be to compare the change in surface area of brains as a measure of potential intelligence (wrinkleliness)

I don't know anything about the brain, or really what the discussion in this thread is about but here is an imgurguement anyway.
A change in brain surface area over time in the case of DH’s study (60Mya-Present) would conclude with us bowing to our Cetacean overlords.

Check out an artists impression of the wrinkles

Since 5Mya the early Homo family brain has it in the bag with four times the mass over that period and around a 50% increase in body mass. Afaik this is the greatest change in EQ known, but our brains are not proportionally any wrinklier than our ape cousins.

Comparing wrinkles to understand high-technology doesn’t get you far.
Look at how long we had big brains without technology, even as homo sapien sapien.


Division of labour between and within lobes has changed a lot over this period and it would be interesting to do FMRI scans on every sentient being that has existed, sadly the neurons are now broken up and making their way through the carbon cycle,

reverse engineering doesn’t seem practical.

In fact, archaeological evidence of art and technology beyond basic stone tools doesn't appear until about 90,000 years ago in sub-Saharan Africa. There, remnants of modern human behavior disappeared around 65,000 years ago and then re-emerged about 40,000 years ago.
"In Europe and western Asia this advanced technology and behavior explodes around 45,000 years ago when humans arrive there, but doesn't appear in eastern and southern Asia and Australia until much later, despite a human presence," said study team member Stephen Shennan of the University College London's Institute of Archaeology.
"Our paper proposes a new model for why modern human behavior started at different times in different regions of the world, why it disappeared in some places before coming back, and why in all cases it occurred more than 100,000 years after modern humans first appeared,"

Here’s another image of something something something

Which numbers correspond to euphoria/dysphoria?

Only twice the mass of a sperm whale but resigned to tracks.
