Journey of Man PBS (2003) - Mutations, or genetic markers on the male Y-chromosome, allow geneticists to trace human descent through the past 2000 generations. Spencer Wells a leading population geneticist and director of the Genographic Project from National Geographic and IBM, tells a story about the African diaspora of prehistoric humans from 60 thousand years ago.
Journey of Man Synopsis
A full introduction with a link to a pictorial Flash slide show that presents the entire phylogeny of human evolution - with extensive links for further reading at: Evolution-Involution Slideshow
The Flash Slideshow is designed so a viewer can first digest the content- with reduced sized images with captions - then click a Fade button to view a seamless presentation of full-sized images to contemplate the involution of our phylogeny. We travel back through billions of years to before Earth was formed as prebiotic substance slowly formed from elements arising from the Big Bang 13.7 billion years ago - and beyond.
The intent is that the slideshow provide a unique past lives experience- an involutionary imagining of the reality of the incomparable magnificence of the process of our origins. From the excruciatingly slow evolution of billion of years to our first multi-cellular organisms, our ancestors were in constant competition with ever-present fearsome contemporary predators yet continually evolving as pre-chordata and finally the relentless progress to the many variations of early primates. Evolution - this momentous process that- in the face of cataclysms in Earth's upheavals and mass extinctions, against all odds, in every stage our antecedents survived the grim statistic- that over 99 percent of all species that have ever lived became extinct. Yet as with each that had its time to flourish- our destiny is still uncertain. We can only hope that the singularity that has fine-tuned our universe with constants that allowed life to arise has gifted us with this miracle for a purpose that may be fulfilled within the next million years.
