Quotes from "Hormone That Affects Finger Length Key To Social Behavior"
http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2009/11/...

1) "Research at the universities of Liverpool and Oxford into the finger length of primate species has revealed that cooperative behavior is linked to exposure to hormone levels in the womb."

* Unbelievable. A unique and novel revelation. What will they reveal next? They might next reveal that the origin of social cooperative behaviour is in cooperative behaviour of cells in a multicelled organism, or even earlier in a cooperative behaviour of monocell organisms in their hormoned communities (cultures), or even earlier in cooperative behaviour of genes in a genome, or - Heaven Forfend - even earlier in cooperative behaviour of molecules, and even earlier of atoms, yes, atoms, to form self-replicating energy constraining genes on Earth to prevent some of it's sun-star energy from serving as fuel for the expansion of galactic clusters.... You mean that everything, yes everything, goes back to the Big Bang? Unbelievable! Why, this turns out to having revealed that everything in the universe, on Earth and life are all evolving intertwiningly! Unbelievable!

2) "Research from finger ratios may help us understand more clearly the development of human sociality and its evolutionary origins."

* I suggest that research of evolution of the coordinated structures and dimensions of human's nose-picking finger and nostril may help us understand more clearly the development of human profundity and its evolutionary origins.
