Nature of the Neanderthal: video with Greg Jay

What is a human being? What is life? Can science give us reliable answers to such questions? The electricity of life. The meaning of human consciousness. Are we alone? Are the traditional contests between science and religion still relevant? Does the word "spirit" still hold meaning today?

Neanderthal: profile of a super-predator.

They were carnivorous apes with stone knives and stone-tipped spears.

A fine painting of what Neanderthals must have looked like during the Purple Dawn Era of Earth.

It seems as though the incredibly difficult tar-based glue that Neanderthals made wasn’t so difficult to make after all. It was previously thought that the glue – which they made from birch tree bark – had to be created in oxygen-free environments in order to preserve some of the chemicals of the burnt bark. However, new studies have shown that the glue wasn’t as hard to make as was once thought.

Researchers discovered that they could just as easily create the glue in the open air and it was even stronger than if they would have made it in an oxygen-free environment. They recreated the glue by setting some birch bark on fire, and then they placed a stone next to the fire so that the flames licked the side of the rock. After about three hours of burning the bark onto the rock, they had enough tar that they could scrape off and use to glue a flint flake to a wooden handle. Then they used the tool to scrape some wood as well as take some flesh off of a calf bone and incredibly enough, the tool remained glued together throughout both activities.
