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.

What is being an adult? I don’t think there is an objective definition for this.
I am redefining the mental adulthood as a consequence of my hypothesis. The mystical experience can only be understood, in my view, as a lost and suddenly re-appearing adulthood. So it is something very different from the ”social” adulthood we are used to. Mystical experience and psychedelics can…
How did you reach your conclusions? Through the psychedelic state?
Not through psychedelics, but through a mystical experience. Mystical experience has been quite well described in Wikipedia, while it is not explained there as I see it. I am referring, in particular, to the rarely manifested version of it which is produced…

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…
