Rather than chimps ‘evolving’ intelligence for tool use they simply drew on the latent intelligence courtesy of the expansion phase yet in finding ways to survive they were degenerating more quickly. Bonobos in captivity appear to be more intelligent without the harsher environments to ‘drive’ said intelligence.So I am trying to get Tony Wright to acknowledge the shamanism of the Bushmen culture -- but apparently he thinks some earlier form of human or hominid in the forest was "more intelligent" and that the later tool use/meat eating human was a degenerate intelligence adapted to more harsh environmental conditions. I am willing to consider this fruit forest human intelligence option but I think it favors a chemical model of intelligence versus the electromagnetic holographic model that is already demonstrated in qigong masters and the Bushmen healing masters, etc. I think to ignore this holographic electromagnetic model of consciousness is to still cling to the exact same Western science "degenerate" bias that Tony Wright considers to be the problem. But obviously Tony Wright is considering intelligence in the opposite sense to Neil Tyson. This reminds me of the debate about whether pgymies are forest dwellers are before the Bushmen genetically or are from the Bushmen culture, etc.
Their uniparental markers represent the most ancient divergent ones right after those typically found in Khoisan peoples.So they live in the forest but the Pygmies are from the Khoisan -- and we can guess the Khoisan originally lived in the forest as well but the Pygmy shamanism doesn't seem as strong as the Khoisan training.
