Agriculture memory
This article about memory research and foraging sparks the idea of human development from hunter/gatherer to agriculture. In most history books, industrial production is considered a third step in human development. But is it really? In terms of brain functions, I can see a qualitative difference between hunting and planting, but I'm not sure I see a qualitative difference between agricultural tool making and industrial tool making.
