Second, these early cultures were very definitely transitional in
`multiple senses, both to archaic H. sapiens and (possibly) to very late H.
`erectus. Even today, some North Australian native groups have (female)
`endocast volumes in the low H. erectus range (about 750 cc). Those folks
`are fully modern in culture, behavior, and intelligence. Think about that!

Wow. This goes some way to support the speculation here a while back
that there really has been a qualitative change in the wiring of the
human brain, and that the quantitative change may only be to provide
redundancy for a suddenly much more valuable piece of hardware.
