Do apes have explicit agreements with each other? I don’t think so. I think they lack the language to make such explicit agreements and they live a more implicit existence.
Do people have explicit agreements with each other? Once again I would say more implicit generally, relying more upon politeness, conformity, customs and culture to keep each other in line. But of course as we get to know each other more explicit agreements are formed, for example signing the agreement on a marriage certificate is pretty explicit not to have sex with anyone else.
Maybe this is what makes us different than apes that we form relationships based upon explicit agreements rather than solely relying upon implied ones.
If this was the case then the more explicit agreements that we formed and used then the more advanced from the apes we are, maybe.
I wonder if I can get this explicit agreement any such advanced humans?
Hmmm… what do you think? Please share your feedback.
