But this implies cogantive processes at work, or at least a human
way of life (eg drawing on a large area for resources) But incest seems
to date back to at least our CA with chimps. Would the CA need a large
area to draw upon? Was it concerned with creating outward alliances (and
was it smart enough to know how to do this through marriage?)
