For hundreds of thousands of years humanity existed in a relatively stable relationship with nature. But then suddenly within the space of a few thousand years, agriculture, animal domestication, complex irrigation techniques, temple construction, trade networks, large-scale social systems, writing, and much more appeared on the stage. What caused this sudden and radical change in the human situation?
