Frayer said that his findings on right-handedness have implications for understanding the language capacity of ancient populations, because language is primarily located on the left side of the brain, which controls the right side of the body, there is a right handedness-language connection. "The general correlation between handedness and brain laterality shows that human brains were lateralized in a 'modern' way by at least half a million years ago and the pattern has not changed since then," he said. "There is no reason to suspect this pattern does not extend deeper into the past and that language has ancient, not recent, roots."
WTF is a collective brain? That sounds like the antithesis of creativity.
as a beekeeper i have often marveled at how the hive is like a brain in its complexity.
also, the idea that the internet could usher in the most significant human advance in 75,000 years is also intriguing.
