Humans

Chapter

Abstract

After more than 99.9% of earth’s present history, conditions were ripe for the first life form on the planet capable of performing complex thinking, speaking structured languages and developing sophisticated tools. Humans were clearly a step forward in the evolution of life on earth. As a species, they have witnessed and lived an infinitesimal portion of earth’s history—mere seconds on the earth’s clock (Fig. 6.1).
