THE DOCTRINE OF EVOLUTION

Arhantropy — ancient people

So, at least in one of the branches of the rich types of the trunk of the Australopithecines, arose and progressively developed the ability to manufacture tools. It was closely linked with the further development of bipedalism and advanced brain development. Probably in this same period there was and extensive utilization of fire. All of these features, taken together, gave such great benefits, what about 2-1. 5 million years ago began a rapid resettlement of those progressive forms in Africa, the Mediterranean, South, Central and Southeast Asia. Settling and getting into new conditions of existence, they formed separate isolated forms. To date (the end of the 60-ies of XX century) there are about a dozen of these fossil forms (presented in the form of residues from many tens, if not hundreds, of individuals), occupying many of the essential features intermediate between modern man, on the one hand, and Australopithecines on the other. All these forms that existed partly simultaneously, partly, apparently, by successive, lived from about 1 million to 200 thousand years BC With the Zoological point of view, these forms probably belong to the same big mind, or superspecies (species complex) — Homo erectus 1.

Having evolved from the architecture finials (pointed towers), the Gothic monument, and this fragile architectural member, needs to be strengthened and relationships with the environment. The architecture of the vial achieves this through frequent repetition, one and the same motive; the monument is looking for support in a larger architecture: crystal, who grew up next to a large crystal formation. As the sacristy in the Church of St. Lawrence at Nuremberg, are not able to stay without the surrounding pillars and the fountain “Shinerunner” on the main market 1385-1396 he could not stay in the middle of the square (when you restore it a little bit pushed to the middle of the square). Similarly, the fountain “Berlinrosen” in Ulm, the market fountain in the Swabian town of Urach looking for support on a larger structure. To expand on the question of the position of the Gothic monument is not possible, as in most Continue reading
