Scientists have found that as people began to develop intelligence

Michael Medler from Western Washington University in Bellingham told me that the ancestors of humans could get a chance to develop because they lived near volcanoes and can near them to cook hot food for the brain, reported IA “data” with reference to RIA Novosti.

This thought came to the scientist after he had lived in Hawaii, near the crater of the volcano a few days. The man was sheltering for the night in a tent and cooked outside using volcanic heat that made him think about how distant human ancestors such as Homo erectus (Homo erectus) or some Australopithecus, to be able to live near volcanoes and cook boiled and grilled foods, with no prior intelligence.

To test their hypothesis, the scientist has tested all discovered graves of ancient human ancestors and found that they all lived near volcanoes or hot rift faults that existed in Africa 2-3 million years ago.

One of the main mysteries of anthropology is still how and why the ancestors of the people began to prepare and eat grilled and boiled foods, which contributed to the development of the brain. Over time, evolving humans learned to make fire themselves, which determined the further development.

In polyproduct calculations Maedler speaks several modern and fossil factors. First, today there are a whole range of animals, including Japanese macaques who have learned to use the “gifts” of the underworld for survival in those conditions they normally would have died from lack of food and warmth.

Secondly, it could explain the lack of wool, which is near the volcano are not needed. Over time this advantage has allowed the human ancestors to be faster and tougher the rest of the animals.

While this hypothesis is almost no unambiguous evidence. Scientists will test it by measuring the time of occurrence of the remains of the first humans, which were found in recent years. Takebody to calculate the time when the DNA in our genes appeared “cooked food”, and disappeared the genes of the coat.

If these dates coincide with the time when East Africa began to erupt the volcanoes, then we can more confidently say that the volcanoes were one of the main factors in the development of the evolution of the human mind.
