  • P robably the best introduction to our book is the conclusion of another book. The other book is Something New Under the Sunby historian J. R. McNeill.1 McNeill argues that the Preacher in Ecclesiastes remains mostly but not completely right—there is indeed “nothing new under the sun” in the realm of vanity and wickedness.

And it greatly amplifies the consequences of vanity and wickedness.

Yes, the macaque is our common ancestor, and it might be expected that, together with the chimps, we continued with our natural selection some 23 million years ago until, some 6 million years ago, we departed from the chimps to continue our further search for better adaptation.
