Language/Hacking: Thesis: language was invented out of boredom, to tell each other jokes around the campfire. (The thesis goes back to the Leakey family (?))
Thesis: the first word that was needed was something to express: "real" e.g. "No, not this, but this here is real": (To the rest you could point). - Even before the name (for absent objects) was available one needed logical constants. Instead of "Me Tarzan, you Jane": "This real". Once a way of representing is found (e.g. pointing) followed by a second-order term in tow.
VsHacking: pointless to set up a theory that cannot be confirmed.
