Philosophy Wire: What? I can't hear you.

A new research sheds light on how the human ear evolved. [source: web news] It is most likely that our ancestors could not hear too well the frequencies in which we speak today. However these 2 million old bones are almost similar to our today. And unlike other bones of the skeleton, the ossicles are already fully formed and adult-sized at birth. This indicates that their size and shape is under very strong genetic control. Someone wants us to hear Bon Jovi from a very young age. Music is the essence of the world. Just listen you primitive man!
