Was there a first cognition? As we developed, adapted and evolved, was there a generation or stretch of time where we went from a sub-species we’d study, to the modern humans we’d recognize as brethren? We now know species can evolve in as short as a generation, sometimes as short as a couple years within a generation. What if that occurred with our ancestors? What if there was truly a first man and woman, that then taught those around them concepts of language, choice, tool use, and division of labor? Was there a child that was born or had an awakening? Did he give himself a name? How did he come to be?
