Regarding Matt Tomaso and Cal Eastman's postings re: the agri. and
indus. revolutions, I think we may be talking about two different things.
Let's not confuse "intelligence",, i.e., the ability to process information,
with "wisdom" which is the accumulation of enough knowledge to make
more accurate associations between our actions and their ultimate
consequences. I would still argue that "intelligence" was pretty much
"in place" prior to these two events.
