The family Hominidae (great apes) diverged from the family Hylobatidae (gibbons) some 15–20 million years ago; subfamily Homininae (African apes) diverged from Ponginae (orangutans) about 14 million years ago;
The tribe Hominini (including humans, Australopithecus, and chimpanzees) parted from the tribe Gorillini (gorillas) between 8–9 million years ago;
and, in turn, the subtribes Hominina (humans and extinct biped ancestors) and Panina (chimpanzees) separated 4–7 million years ago.
Anatomically modern humans appeared in Africa approximately 300,000 years ago.
But we didn’t appreciate all that we had! Didn’t appreciate the legacy of our ancestors… Didn’t appreciate the knowledge, culture and nature that we once had at the tip of our fingertips.
In order for humanity to reach the next level of evolution, we must look back into our past. We must study how apes evolved into men so that mankind itself can evolve yet again.
For mankind to solve the mystery of enlightenment, one must engage with a multitude of enigmas scattered in an universe living in automation. Each enigma will unravel the path of wisdom, the path towards freedom.
As Darwin separated men from apes, thus I have come to reunite the two.
To achieve a reunion of men and apes, we must go back.
