The material in WHEE suggests that human evolution reached a level of speciation, followed by the diaspora from Africa in a first globalization, leading to a new phase of ‘macro-evolution’ visible in the macro effect, probably starting with the Natufians in the Middle East, after 10000 BCE. This was a period of micro-evolution under harsh circumstances: man proving himself in the Ice Age.

This is why we are suspicious that real ‘human evolution’ is more than genetic: it operates on ‘situations’, e.g. hunter gatherer bands, etc… in many combinations.

If we look at the macro effect in WHEE, especially the later visible phases, we can see that cultural transformation leads any genetic evolution (as far as we know). This should be the source for a new set of hypotheses about how humanity evolved.
