3:07

levels in this culture

3:09

a lot of culture comes from imitation

watching what you just do something

and here he s ramachandran makes the beaded leap

3:18

he has proposed that'd be key moment in our revolution this is his guests army

3:23

rainier arms yeah

3:26

and that made all the difference he says because once we humans got better had

3:30

learning from each other looking copying teaching

3:34

we could do things

3:36

the other creatures couldn't

3:38

in other words people who are out there

with deep in our architecture down in ourselves we are a bill to be to get
