Personally I feel that placing importance of one factor above another
factor goes contradicts the process of evolution. "Mosaic" evolution
involves the effects of many circumstances and needs. One cannot place a
greater importance on any single factor. The positive feedback between all
factors is what truly made "us" bipedal.
