What I though was most interesting this week was learning how small our species actually is, time wise. We have been around a fourth of the time other homosapien’s have been around this astounds me.

The idea that at one point in time there were different species of humans during the same period is mind blowing. Looking at us today, we all look so different but we are all very much the same on the inside. Back then, there were different species that coexisted but didn’t procreate and produce viable offspring, as far as we know. It really makes me wonder why this species is the only one that survived. One reason this could be is our brain structure, but why

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
