Whilst reading Yuval Noah Harari’s book Sapiens, it occurred to me the extent to which humans have just created rules for ourselves. An imagined order as Harari describes it in his book. Whilst the way I use the term here is perhaps slightly looser than in Harari’s book, it follows the same idea: the lives of humans come partly down to our genes and a lot to what’s in our heads.
