That is surreal and really cool. I wonder if underwater archaeologists took the next step and began excavating around that area if they would find any human (or perhaps even more ancient) remains...

Speaking of underwater archaeology, and ancient human jaw bone with teeth still intact has recently been discovered 15 miles off the coast of western Taiwan.

I thought this was interesting as well...precision gripping has apparently been an asset to early humans as long as 3 million years ago, although the oldest stone tools yet discovered dates to 2.6 million. Did our cognitive advancement need some time to catch on to our physical assets? Precision gripping allows for climbing trees, building/using stone tools, etc...

Edit: Alright, final link for the tonight. Had to share this, as I'm personally intrigued with the concept of Genetic Memory: http://www.scientificamerican.com/blog/ … A_Facebook
