Language and toolmaking evolved together, say researchers
Evolutionary advance saw stone-age humans master the art of hand-toolmaking and paved the way for language to develop
Stone-age humans mastered the art of elegant hand-toolmaking in an evolutionary advance that boosted their brain power and potentially paved the way for language, researchers say.
In “The Man, The Teaching, His Mission” the encyclopedic account by William Patrick Patterson.

“There is no machine that has ever been built or ever will be built that can know itself.”
A machine cannot have self awareness – a machine can beat Gary Kasparov in chess, but it will never “know” it is beating him.
