From Homo Erectus to San and Twa
We have to strive to develop our own researchers and scientist to take a further look at Homo Erectus, from which we evolved. Pictures show either ape like characters, or cave men resembling characters to whom resemble no characteristics of what the first humans, The San and Twa resemble. So for them to have given birth to humans, they would have had to possess African features, just like every other African person on the continent. Sun intensity levels, climate and elevation all play a key in this. Plus we have prehistoric changes that factor in as well. The Homo Erectus that they show us cannot be anything close to what they actually looked like. They would have had to be the same human skeletal structure, as I've seen them with, maybe a little more hair, Afro type kinky hair, and a smaller brain. We also have to explore how much more different they were than todays tribes that came from them. I mean they gave birth 2 the San and Twa and lived among them and passed their culture onto them. So if they paved the foundation for the San and Twa, who never changed their cultures, that means they must have been smart enough to co exist with them, and be the forefathers of their tribes.
Homo Erectus, was here over 1.5 million years ago, and faded out 70,000 years ago. Thats the same time that E1 parent DNA of Bantu West Africans started developing in the picture in Central Africa. So they would have had to be apart of the Twa and San tribes for almost 130,000 years.
If you look at the San and the Twa you see 2 hunter gatherer tribes, the same went for Homo Erectus.
"Homo erectus was probably the first hominin to live in a hunter-gatherer society, and anthropologists such as Richard Leakey believe that erectus was socially more like modern humans than the more Australopithecus-like species before it. Likewise, increased cranial capacity generally coincides with the more sophisticated tools occasionally found with fossils. H. erectus was probably the first hominin to live in small, familiar band-societies similar to modern hunter-gatherer band-societies; and is thought to be the first hominin species to hunt in coordinated groups, to use complex tools, and to care for infirm or weak companions."
Housing types were similar as well. The first houses are thought to be windbreak type houses made of animals skins stretched over a frame. There is evidence that Homo Erectus constructed 50-foot-long branch huts with stone slabs or animal skins for floors.
The oldest recognized buildings in the world are twelve 400,000-year-old huts found in Nice, France in 1960. Uncovered by an excavator preparing to build a new house, the oval shelters ranged from 26 feet to 49 feet in length and were between 13 feet and 20 feet wide. They were built of 3-inch in diameter stakes and braced by a ring of stones. Longer poles were set around the perimeter as supports. The huts had hearths and pebble-lined pits and were defined by stake holes.
Ancient humans thought to be Homo erectus that lived 350,000 years ago near present-day Bilzingsleben, East Germany constructed shelters similar to the Bushmen tribe in southern Africa. Circular bone and stone foundations were discovered for three huts between 9 and 13 feet across. In the middle of on circle, archaeologist found an elephant tusk, which they speculated was a center post.
Twa houses are also built similarly. They have many different building types, but what you can see between the San, Twa, and Erectus, is not much of a difference
I previously stated that they would have lived amongst each other in the same tribe. The Twa build huts called Mongulus. Each mongulus has one door and bedroom.
Each mongulus a family of 4 people live.The mongulus are hut made of leaves and stems.
The early hunting styles can be seen in all 3 as well."In 1987-88, scientists found the remains of an elephant and numerous dismembered skeletons of giant now-extinct baboons along with 400 flaked tools near Olorgesailie, Kenya. Many bones had obvious cut marks and the meatiest limbs were not present. The tools were made from rock that came from 30 kilometers away. If these animals had indeed been hunted rather than scavenged it would have required great skill to bring down such powerful animals.
Meat and bone marrow also gave Homo erectus energy to grow a larger brain. Perhaps they used cooperative skills in hunting to drive rhinos, elephants or mammoths over cliffs or into swamps. "Before, we doubted that humans had speech this early," Roberts said. "But for this kind of hunting, which would require strategies such as ambush, speech would have been critical."
Baka twa Hunting is one of the most important activities in Baka culture; not only for the food it provides (as many Baka live mainly by fishing and gathering), but also because of the prestige and symbolic meaning attached to the hunt. The Baka use bows, poisoned arrows, and traps to hunt game, and are well versed in the use of plants for medicine as well as poison.
Like most Pygmy groups, they move to follow the available food supply. When not camped in their permanent camp, the Baka rarely stay in one spot for longer than one week. During the rainy season, the Baka go on long expeditions into the forest to search for the wild mango, or peke
The San hunters are very excellent at what they do. Other than making traps, they are good using a bow and arrow. Instead of killing animals instantly, they sometimes slowly poison animals to death, which takes from a few hours to a few days depending on the size of the animal.
They get their poison from different sources: poisonous caterpillars, larvae from of a small beetle, poisonous plants, and snake venom. Once they get the poison, the poison is boiled repeatedly until it looks like red currant jelly. Once it is done cooling down, it is put on the arrow inside the reed collar so that the hunters or anyone else won't be harmed by the poison. When the arrow hits an animal, the hunters would have to track it until it dies.
The San are clever when it comes to traps. One thing they would do is dig funnel shaped pitfalls near rivers and plant a sharp stake in the middle, then covering the hole with branches.
For smaller animals, they make traps out of twisted gut or fibers from plants. When a small animal enters a snare to collect the bate that was left for them, the trap strangles them.
So you can see the similarities and how they wouldve transitioned easily from Homo Erectus to African tribal people. One thing that I spoke about yesterday was the use of wrong imagery to display what homo Erectus actually looked like.
I believe that the images you see are of monkey looking people to ward you away from research or they are cave men looking
people designed to give Europeans a sense of history beyond 7000 years. How can you be from Africa and have long wavy hair like a European.
I have homo Eructus images of their skeleton, and it looks like humans, I mean you cant tell them apart. So I dont see how all Africans have dark skin and afros, then all of a sudden they draw Eretus looking like a caveman, with white skin and wavy hair.
That wouldnt even go with how black genes work. Everything recesses from black, so you do the math.
I seriously think they dont want us to know our history, because other than cranial, and brain differences it wasnt much of a difference,
and the same way they lived 1 million years ago, the San and Twa are still living today.
