Lee Berger: Homo naledi tells us a few things. One, that we should have an expectation of strangeness. That there are things out there we haven’t found. There are lineages that are certainly out there that we haven’t seen, maybe “ghost lineage” is the word. Something coming from deep time that was invisible until we see the species, and perhaps we should expect more of those. Second thing it teaches us is that there’s mosaicism in human origins. That the simple expectation that when you look at one part of the body, you can tell what another part of the body’s gonna look like, that’s wrong. Sediba started that story. Homo naledi says that absolutely. And the third thing I think it teaches us is that we should be very careful about proclaiming everything we find as a human ancestor. Human relative is probably a better term because it’s clear now that to get to us, there were lots of different experiments.
