I am rather surprised, no shocked with your reply. You seem courteous, comfortable in your own skin intelligent, rather well educated, and seemingly well read. I think unusual relative to the dogmatic procession of nutters with wacko ideas that float through this forum. (Some would say that already puts you way above my league!!!)
I have had a quick first read and since you asked politely, I will try to offer some form of initial serious considered comment in the next day or so. However you say you have been at it just a week. Perhaps you ought contemplate flesh out your hypothesis a bit more first and post version two?
However, I see you are already conversing with member Thanos5150 and I assure you he is a much better candidate to offer constructive criticism on your idea (if willing?). He has likely forgotten more about Anthropology and subjects related to your hypothesis than I have ever learnt.
I am somewhat familiar with the book "Homo Deus" although I have not read it (only reviews). Does that form part of the basis or the conclusion or direction your hypothesis is leading?
Till next time
