In “The Making, The Rise, and the Future of The Speakingman,” Dan Mrejeru delves into the evolutionary development of the human brain, exploring how we became the advanced communicators we are today. This thought-provoking book challenges our understanding of human evolution and posits intriguing theories about our future.

Dan Mrejeru, a multi-disciplinary scientist, has dedicated his career to exploring human evolution. His previous work, “Solovki’s Ersatz,” marked a significant milestone in his research. In July 2019, Mrejeru self-published two more books: “Emergence of Modern Brain and the Buildup of Imaginary Civilization” and “Augmentation and Illnesses of Civilization.” He released a second edition on September 15, 2019. Mrejeru has published 96 scientific papers on and at prestigious institutions such as La Sorbonne (Paris, France), Oxford (UK), and the Medical University of Vienna (Austria). He has over 10,000 views and 1,000 readers on Mrejeru has written 20 books, three of which have multiple editions. More information can be found on his website,, which has over 550 visitors.

Dan hypothesized that sapiens encountered two cognitive revolutions. Their thinking system shifted around 70,000 years ago from a primitive/simple linearity towards an evolutionary nonlinearity, which, as it advanced, produced existential risks. Around 40,000-30,000 years ago, the sapiens brain produced a correction, redirecting the thinking process towards a gradual advanced linearity that helped them build our linear civilization. These two cognitive revolutions also participated in producing a new species that manifested 30,000-23,000 years ago as the Speakingman.

Another important idea is the extensive documentation offered for the role of functional “latencies” in the human brain, triggered in the past by the revolution of novel dynamic language. These “latencies” helped sapiens and their successors to unveil the “unseen” aspects of reality while diminishing the processing speed of the neural signal. One significant idea is a massive analysis of the role and evolution of “linearization,” which is responsible for “quantifying” all previous “qualities.”

The main idea of the book is the first time in literature when the role of geomagnetic events (geomagnetic excursions and temporal polarity reversals) is shown to have influenced most of the biota on this planet, but especially hominins and sapiens. These events caused evolutions and extinctions.

Mrejeru’s interdisciplinary approach combines insights from various scientific fields, making complex concepts accessible to a general audience. His vivid descriptions bring the subject matter to life, creating a captivating narrative. Add “The Making, The Rise, and the Future of The Speakingman” to your reading list and embark on a journey through the fascinating evolution of the Speakingman.
