Inspired by xkcd, here’s what I do explained using only the Ten Hundred most used words. More details coming soon.

People are different to animals. They have stuff in their heads that they learn from other people that lets them do cool things, like build houses and cars and stuff like that. I want to know what things animals need to learn all that stuff and how those things work in the human animal.

Once I know what things people need to learn from other people, I want to know if you can use numbers and computers to see if those things lead to what humans and the human world look like today.

What would be even cooler is if we could use what we know about how people learn from other people, and the numbers and computers to help the people who lead us do their job better and make the world a better place.
