Considering the board covers anthropology, that would be all hominids. So back to the first biped apes.

We know chimps in the wild make simple tools and gorillas in captivity can handle linguistic communication (sign language), so we had those in our toolbox when we changed our spinal curvature.

If those apes weren't there to chimp out we'd have commercialized space travel by now.

That's dumb. We know a lot about various peoples/civilizations that didn't have writing.

Until the first written source, otherwise it would be prehistory

hieroglyphics are writing
they are not just some simplistic series of 1 to 1 corresponding pictures meaning "bird sun water" (logo/ideogram) but they are also an actual system of reporting discrete, lower level linguistic concepts (phonogram)

>>24385

Except we weren't demonstrably smarter nor had superior tools at the time.

One of the most convincing arguments is observations of the origins of neanderthal tools. Tl;dr, it implies that they were highly self-reliant in that all tools/trinkits found by their bodies originated from the immediate area, whereas the spread of artifacts from contemporary Sapiensnigs was far more 'diverse.'
