      Okay. I didn't mean to imply that the brains were any different
      structurally. I just wanted to mention the significance of culture so as not
      to let its importance get buried under pure biology and anatomy. I don't
      actually have an argument w/ you. Culture is much richer now. Yes, we 'do
      more of it.'
