    Well, didn't melons become what they are trough constant selection of specific traits that became a fixed pheno(geno?)type? ( not sure how skin deep is this since mesoamerican elongated skulls were shown to have middle east origins...). Thals practiced this too. It may be a shared K trait, but they also could have a common root. The question is how could they split in such different ways of interacting with the environment: reality control vs reality understanding just for the sake of it.

    The first step is, still, understanding why some lobes grow larger than others so dramatically.

    Because it is ;)

    I can't stop comparing human society with ants/bees'. In time, classes are developed, and the same species gets very different classes whose members have traits that show their place in the hierarchy. Maybe it's just a pattern developed after tens of thousands of years of civilization. Maybe it started in a faded way, from the tribes to villages and finally getting sharper as cities were needed to accomodate the growing population. In time, physical divisions remained. It's just a hypothesis.

    This is pretty dead on with regards to Aeoli's recent conception of bacskswept style cognition.

    An underlying assumption of my overwatch theory is that higher classes develop purely to facilitate larger group sizes.

    Well, what other function would they have if not that? The golden top of the pyramid is not that useless after all...it is the finishing touch of the masterpiece that's human society ;)

    Shush shush, baby! No need to worry. We all are important in this human hive. ~but not all receive what they deserve~
    Tho', for the right incentive, I can offer you a shoulder to cry on.

    Glenn Seaborg. Nobel Prize winning Chemist.

    Mind the bad angles, It seems all the profile photos of him are either at bad angles or with his head tipped.

    I want to both disagree and thank for this one. He's not TT IMO, but he's a very interesting case. Very backset foramen magnum, and extremely long skull when compared to height. But the angle at which he holds his face suggests the mass would typically be in the fauxcippital region or the backswept region. Offhand, I'd guess that the chin projection includes a significant underbite. If not, then the mass would be likely be concentrated in the backswept region. Great example of deep sockets however, definitely T-front as we diagnose it here. I'd guess that this is a very motivated, driven person with abnormal willpower. Good testosterone too. Using my IQ-phrenology heuristics, I'd peg this guy at 145 IQ with hyperfocus and ambition, a force to be reckoned with but significantly lacking in sensibility.

    Agree on presence of underbite, disagree on degree of contribution to impression of chinproj. I disagree with anything higher than occ- obviously hair is an intial confounding factor but you have the wherewithal to have accounted for this. I thought socket depth was the uncertainty here- overestimated foreheadproj.

    Ancilliarily, his ears tilt backwards. One of mine does that. I had ascribed it to temps. Caesar also had one ear backwards rotated. Again, I ascribed it to temps, but he had occ. Quite curious. I've repeatedly denoted the widening effects temporals have on the jaw, but it seems occ induces its own mojo, with evident consequences for the aural region given the masseter's proximity to the ear. The interplay of bone versus muscle morphology here is quite inductive of curiosity.

    I was just remarking to Bet that I think that thalface can be properly distinguished from melon upper maxillary retrusion by evaluating the percentage of face taken up by the mouth (higher % - thallish). I was considering an approach emphasizing neurochemical effects on earth meridians, but simple biomechanics is more elegant. Stabilize the base of the skull, and the bottom of the face is correspondingly stabilized.

    (Maybe)
