I agree with Harari that the cognitive revolution and the agricultural revolution formed basis for our modern civilization. During the Cognitive revolution, Homo Sapiens developed the ability to transmit larger amounts of information about the world’s surroundings. They also developed the ability to transmit larger amounts of information about social relationships among other Sapiens. The other ability they developed was obtaining information about things that don’t exist like religion, spirits, nations, and human rights. These are all things that humans know today. Then when the agricultural revolution began, Sapiens began domesticating animals like the goat. Also, they started growing crops, such as wheat, which started an increase in food. However, it did not make for a better diet. The increase of food did, in fact, create an increase in population because women began creating more offspring. When the agricultural revolution began, Sapiens stopped migrating as much and started to make camps so they could farm.
I mostly agree with Harari that Sapiens became dominant because of imagined orders. Because of our ability to communicate in large groups is what makes our species strong. We come together due to our similar imagination. The other aspects, I believe that makes us more dominant are our ability to communicate with one another and collaborate with one another. I think this played a huge role in Sapiens becoming dominant, but there are a lot of other aspects that come into play, such as the ability to grow crops and our opposable thumbs, but mostly because of our ability to communicate and be social.
