“It is...highly probable that from the very beginning, apart from death, the only ironclad rule of human experience has been the Law of Unintended Consequences.”
Ian Tattersall, Masters of the Planet: The Search for Our Human Origins

“Hominids typically haven't so much adapted to change, as they have accommodated to it.”
Ian Tattersall, Masters of the Planet: The Search for Our Human Origins

“Inside our skulls are fish, reptile and shrew brains, as well as the highest centers that allow us to integrate information in our unique way; and some of our newer brain components talk to each other via some very ancient structures indeed. Our brains are makeshift structures, opportunistically assembled by Nature over hundreds of millions of years, and in multiple different ecological contexts.”
Ian Tattersall
