chart maps the progression from our earliest ancestors to modern primates.
The top of chart (where all the pictures are) is modern day, where all
these primates coexist. As you can see from the chart, primates are still
evolving; we do not represent the high point of all primates, just of
the human branch. Chimps, as you can plainly see, are not our ancestors
but our (almost identical) cousins.
