Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
You're missing my point.

I can learn how to do integration by reading Wikipedia or buying a book. The point is not that I'm learning from other individuals, but that the knowledge persists and exists externally and independently.

I can learn to play the blues by listening to recordings made by someone who died a long time ago. You're going to have a hard time convincing me there's any evidence of similar transmission in animals.

Tool use is not the point here.
