East Asian origins: A theory


The story starts in pre-Bantu Africa, where we have a certain group of ancient pre-Bantu African technologists. As the Bantu were expanding out of the central African jungles, the pre-Bantu Africans (East Asians) gradually gave way and started migrating out of the continent via sailing ship. At the time, most other places outside Africa was pre-technological. These Bantus from the jungles were probably evolved in one of the most hostile environments imaginable, thus they possessed an unmatched level of fortitude. But their conquest likely led to the loss of technology on the continent and its decline into a pre-technological state. (Well, we can't be sure though since we know so little about Africa's ancient history, which was largely kept apart from the rest of the world by massive physical barriers like deserts.)

The African technologists needed a new homeland, after getting pushed out of Africa by the Bantu expansion. Much of the rest of the world was pre-technological, violent, and cannibals by choice. The African technologists wanted a place to call their own. Where they could avoid all the regular pre-technological population centers. The first place they would have encountered that fit this requirement was northern China which was seasonally inundated with Arctic cold fronts, making it all but uninhabitable for pre-technological humans of the time, except for the couple of small peninsular regions on the coasts that were kept relatively warm all year round.

As Shandong would have already been populated with natives, the first area the African technologists encountered without a permanent population would have probably been the Hebei and Liaoning coastal corridor. It sat between two temperature moderated regions that had sizable populations, namely Korea and Shandong, but was largely empty of human habitation due to the drop in temperature at winter. Unlike the natives of Shandong and Korea, the technologists had the skills and know-how to properly insulate themselves from frigid arctic winds. Thus it was possible for them to live there.

In conclusion, East Asians (African technologists) first established their new, exclusively East Asian homeland in the coastal corridor of Hebei and Liaoning, quickly spreading into northern China and Siberia. This was the leading edge of the migration, which was the fastest group that had largely bypass other regions along the way, meaning they had very little intermixture with populations on the pathway. This is how we can answer the mystery of East Asians basically appearing out of nowhere (while retaining their smaller eyes).

This is the Austronesian expansion map. We can use it to detail the actual pathway of the migration. Normally, this migration pattern starts in Taiwan/southern China. However, we can pivot the migration tree, making Madagascar first. (Because any data that can be put in a tree hierarchy has rotational symmetry given no other evidence/clues but the data itself. This is one of the properties of data tree hierarchies/orders. Just ignore the arrow directions and dates.)

The bantu expansion happened long after east Asians were already established.

You should post this in the speculative history forum, this way someone may think you actually meant this serious.

Mostly nonsense. However, it is possible an offshoot of San Bushmen migrated out of Africa into Asia hundreds thousands of years ago.

Why there is a tendency of some laypeople to always try to establish a connection between San Bushmen and East Asians?

Because they have 'small eyes'

(according to Jangkwans 'horse rider theory' )

Not only that, but East Asians have Neanderthal DNA, which Africans are witnout. Some Pacific Islanders have Denosian (another separate human group like Neanderthals) DNA as well. Which would seem to rule out the emigration proposed.

LOL. But then, Austronesians hv relatively big eyes for eastern Asians. This is a pic of a young woman from the Rukai tribe, an indigenous tribe from the Taiwan highlands, a remaining still relatively unmixed tribe of the original Austronesian family.

Austronesians are not so called East Asian as the term wud mean today. They were the original indigenous people (or one among several) of Taiwan & southern China, before their original homeland got more or less taken over by later migrating peoples from the north, i.e. the East Asians of today.

Whereas the Sumerian people came from a different stock

Those are even bigger eyes, of course.
