Empathy, cooperation, fairness and reciprocity – caring about the well-being of others seems like a very human trait. But Frans de Waal shares some surprising videos of behavioral tests, on primates and other mammals, that show how many of these moral traits all of us share.

TED Talk: Elaine Morgan says we evolved from aquatic apes

I watched this TED talk during my summer holiday. And I’ve thought about it quite some times afterwards. Even though what this elderly lady says is far from everything most people believe… Because we’ve been taught different. And scientists have proven evidence of another evolution… then she’s really interesting to listen to. Elaine Morgan has another angle on our evolution. And some of her points makes sense to me. This has made me think about what we would actually find, if archeologists could dig in the bottom of the ocean as well as they can on land. What’s really down there? What sunk and will stay hidden, maybe forever? Which truths don’t we know yet?

Elaine Morgan is a tenacious proponent of the aquatic ape hypothesis: the idea that humans evolved from primate ancestors who dwelt in watery habitats. Hear her spirited defense of the idea – and her theory on why mainstream science doesn’t take it seriously.
