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.

Reason and the paradoxical passion of understanding
Explaining things is undoubtedly innate to modern man and therefore nearly all key issues of humanity are related to explaining one way or another. Maybe that is why various ethical and philosophical groups, non-profit organizations, churches and scientific communities have tried to…

The hoax of adulthood
One of mankind's strangest tacit agreements is that grown-up people call themselves "adults". In fact, they are not adults and they know it for themselves. They are overage teenagers in adult bodies. That is why people tend to speak of constant development…

Early scientific experiments

Early scientific experiments with psychedelics were well documented. They showed how the human mind changes, although the real causes of the effects could not be determined. These results are easy to understand just by accepting that the psyche of modern man is…
