Unlocking change

"For most of their existence as a species, humans have made their living as hunter-gatherers, which requires extensive ecological knowledge. In the absence of writing, storytelling and other forms of symbolic behavior (e.g., art, song, dance, ritual, games) provided mnemonic frameworks for storing this knowledge, rules for faithfully copying it, and regular occasions for refreshing and transmitting it."
