Why did the Cognitive Revolution allow for larger-scale cooperation among humans? What is an “imagined order” and how do they further human cooperation? Give one example that Harari uses of an imagined order.
You may be able to think of the cognitive revolution to be similar to the industrial revolution. In ways, they both open the world up to new possibilities and greater power. The cognitive revolution created gateways to a more defined reality in which Homo Sapiens could incorporate the objective reality and mix it with the imagined reality ruled by the concept of god, and other authoritative shadows.
