The moments the early Hominids became more than amateur rock throwers, learned to control fire, learned to chip a sharp edge on a rock ... was the start of discarding the necessity for a physical structure that enables our relatives (chimps, gorilas) to be five to fifteen times physically stronger than we are, the start of becoming the weak-jawed, small canines, weak biting, critter we are now.

Protection from predators was a powerful selection pressure, as much as the necessity to forage and hunt to get food, and our evolving hominid ancestors responded to it by the very risky strategy of cognitive development at the enormous risk of big-head birth through a narrower pelvis.

Of course, evolution has not stopped, and, many people today are as subject to existential threats to life as ever. But, very few people today are not using tools which, considered in an evolutionary time scale, are as remarkable as Homo Saps is.
«Where is the Life we have lost in living? Where is the wisdom we have lost in knowledge? Where is the knowledge we have lost in information?» T. S. Elliot
