Freud was still free to contemplate the human project as something cut from whole cloth, personal and human time, not as a history of subtle accretions and increments through millions of years, but as if in the thousands reflected in Judeo-Christian cosmogony (in the 1880's the relationships between "Cro-Magnon" and Neanderthal were unclear, by the 1930's it was assumed that modern man had emerged in an Asiatic zone and swiftly displaced the Neanderthal.

Freud was undoubtedly familiar with the contemporary belief that the earliest man traced his roots back at least one hundred thousand years).
