... Environmental stresses. Things changed drastically during the Ice age this is the period were are talking about which also coincides with
the massive Megafuana die off.
A massive die off of a possible major food source during an Ice age/Climatic change then signs of cannibalism....

Artifacts left behind by neanderthals shows a sudden shift around the time they made contact with humans. Suddenly their dead are buried less,
evidence of cannibalism is greater, and caves that were Neanderthal caves show a sudden transition into becoming human caves.
What this shows is evidence for violence against Neanderthals. Specifically, increased desperation from Neanderthals to survive.
Turns out the first Caucasians are from people who migrated north of India, and had an albino gene. Took them a few generations to stabilize and
adapt. At first the albino gene was not a benefit. but as time went on, they adapted to their predicament and the genes stabilized.
if an idle speculation of a conspiratorial/occultic nature is not unwelcome, i'd like to contribute to your discussion.
The "Stoned Ape" Theory of Human Evolution en.wikipedia.org...
In his book Food of the Gods, McKenna proposed that the transformation from our early ancestors Homo erectus to the species Homo sapiens mainly
had to do with the addition of the mushroom Psilocybe cubensis in out diet - an event which according to his theory took place in about 100,000 BC
(this is when he believed that our species diverged from the Homo genus). He based his theory on the main effects, or alleged effects, produced by the
mushroom. One of the effects that comes about from the ingestion of low doses, which agrees with one of scientist Roland Fischer's findings from the
late 60s-early 70s, is it significantly improves the visual acuity of humans - so theoretically, of other human-like mammals too. According to
McKenna, this effect would have definitely prove to be of evolutionary advantage to our omnivorous hunter-gatherer ancestors that would have stumbled
upon it "accidentally"; as it would make it easier for them to hunt.
In higher doses, McKenna claims, the mushroom acts as a sexual stimulator, which would make it even more beneficial evolutionary, as it would result
in more offspring. At even higher doses, the mushroom would have acted to "dissolve boundaries", which would have promoted community-bonding and
group sexual activities-that would result in a mixing of genes and therefore greater genetic diversity. Generally McKenna believed that the periodic
ingestion of the mushroom would have acted to dissolve the ego in humans before it ever got the chance to grow in destructive proportions. In this
context he likened the ego to a cancerous tumor that can grow uncontrollable and become destructive to its host. In his own words:
Wherever and whenever the ego function began to form, it was akin to a calcareous tumor or a blockage in the energy of the psyche. The use of
psychedelic plants in a context of shamanic initiation dissolved-as it dissolves today-the knotted structure of the ego into undifferentiated feeling,
what Eastern philosophy calls the Tao.
—Terence McKenna, Food of the Gods
The mushroom, according to McKenna, had also given humans their first truly religious experiences (which, as he believed, were the basis for the
foundation of all subsequent religions to date). Another factor that McKenna talked about was the mushroom's potency to promote linguistic thinking.
This would have promoted vocalisation, which in turn would have acted in cleansing the brain (based on a scientific theory that vibrations from
speaking cause the precipitation of impurities from the brain to the cerebrospinal fluid), which would further mutate our brain. All these factors
according to McKenna were the most important factors that promoted our evolution towards the Homo sapiens species. After this transformation took
place, our species would have begun moving out of Africa to populate the rest of the planet  Later on, this theory by McKenna was given the name
"The 'Stoned Ape' Theory of Human Evolution".

The 4000 BCE Origins of Child Abuse,
Sex-repression, Warfare and Social Violence,
In the Deserts of the Old World
Evidence for a Worldwide,
Climate-Linked Geographical Pattern
in Human Behavior
James DeMeo, Ph.D.
Human Violence is Unnatural. Perpetual War is Not Inevitable.
The Human Species is By Nature Loving, Cooperative and Peaceful.
There is a Real Early Peaceful Period in the Archaeological Record.
The Concept of a "Naked Violent Ape" or "Violent Genes" is a Modern Fantasy-Falsehood.
Early Climate Change Towards Saharasian Deserts at c.4000 BCE led to the
First Widespread Appearance of Violent Human Societies, who have
Favorably Perpetuated Themselves over the Centuries by Conquest of more Peaceful Societies.
An early period of generally peaceful social conditions is documented in prehistory, but with a major shift towards patriarchal-authoritarian and
decidedly violent social conditions across the Saharasian region after a major climate-shift from wet grassland-forest conditions towards harsh desert
conditions at c.5000-4000 BC. Major epochs of cultural diffusion are also presented on maps, showing how violent patriarchal authoritarian,
sex-repressive and child-abusive behaviors were carried outward from their Saharasian origins to nearly every corner of the globe. It presents
previously-unknown geographical patterns in dozens of different human behaviors, beliefs and social institutions representative of human violence and
warlike aggression, such as slavery, castes, genital mutilations and a low women's status.
it may have been a great dying off in the mushrooms...
during the community-bonding rituals the mushrooms would "out" certain individuals by the negative reactions they had to it [like the undercover
CIA operative that convinced Wasson to take him along on a visit to María Sabina, and had a very bad trip] the whole community having identified
these individuals and dealt with it, usually by expulsion[a bad idea as we shall see]
in simply expelling them, they simply pushed the problem out of the community,created a threat to travelers, and thus to trade, and eventually helped
"the heartless ones" to form their own alliances. genetic psychopathy/sociopathy may have been bred as a result.
they might have mixed with them thar albinos...[!!!!!!!]
[ tongue in cheek]
and then the mushrooms started dying out... whether due to DeMeo's Saharasia event, climate change in general, maybe even a few small cometary
impacts, all of the above or a combination.
"the heartless ones", the psychopaths and sociopaths saw their chance, struck, achieved the position of the dominator class, and the rest is what
we call history. or the"Nightmare of History" to some.
hooray!!! part 3 is coming soon!
lately i have been idly speculating something along these lines
Neanderthals = Lemurians [?]
Atlanteans = Archaic Homo Sap.[?]
Adamic Race = Homo Sap. Sap.
notice all those "trepanned" Neanderthal skulls?
maybe it wasn't the brains that were sought,
but the Pineal gland/3rd eye.
as a "reasonable facsimile" and rich source of the "spirit molecule". this may have been the source/origen, perverted over time, of the idea that
qualities could be ingested.
"you are what you eat" who knows?
Neanderthals/Lemurians[?] may have also hunted/contributed to their own extinction and not just been a victim of Homo Sap.
the hybridization would have occurred during the more peacful periods.
looking forward to any feed back from the 3 of you.
not bad for today's 1st post IMHO
