They extinct because they were smarter

On Discover mag, psychiatrist Gary Lynch and cognitive scientist Richard Granger makes some interesting remarks about an extinct species – Boskops, whom resembles modern humans but had small, childlike faces and huge melon heads that held brains about 30 percent larger than our own,

“Just as we’re smarter than apes, they were probably smarter than us,”

” they speculate. More insightful and self-reflective than modern humans, with fantastic memories and a penchant for dreaming, the Boskops may have had “an internal mental life literally beyond anything we can imagine.”

Such a “race”, I like to call them, maybe the peak of human evolution. We can logically conclude that a race like this can emerge from our next few generation. You want to call this evolution, then evolve lor. (Link)
