I thinks so. That idea came to me from a radio documentary where they
compared a typical five year old children with a typical chimpanzee.
They are of equal intellectual capacity but the huge difference is in
sharing stories. The five year child is constantly telling stories -
about anything and to whomever want (or doesn't) to listen - but the
chimp just sits silent until a need of any kind arises.
