Hmm... look at the branch of the tree (with the guy siting on it) and the trunk of the tree, it's two different kinds of wood.

It's all there: The branch does not fit (low fitness) and is too weak. The man has an extended phenotype in his hand. The EP is used in a wrong way: the man will fall down from the tree (as a comment to our history.)

He is clearly a modern man even there; so no evolution has happened since then.

There seems to be no leaves in the tree; I'm not sure what that means.
