Notes on problematic human nature
What is Homo Reliquiae?
This blog tries to convince you why we humans should be called homo reliquiae instead of homo sapiens (wise man). Homo reliquiae means a “surviving” man. Deep down we are not wise—sapiens—but just ancient remains and relic of our original species, homo heidelbergensis. This blog also tries to convince you that understanding ourselves is possible and that in addition to questions, there are also answers. After 20 years of studying, I have come to the conclusion that the birth of modern human +100.000 years ago virtually meant that we left behind, abandoned, and gave up [relinquere] an important feature, which used to make us mentally adults. Now all adults are just overaged teenagers. Because of this it is completely impossible for us to understand life and its various phenomena. I have no tools to prove this, but my articles offer interesting circumstantial evidence to support this hypothesis.
