Multi-species skill-evolution: stages and assumptions

Simple skilled behaviours that are simulated to investigate the interaction between the functionality of the layers during human maturation, i.e. the process of developing from conception to adult:

  1. Genomic skills as the first and bottom layer.
  2. Apprenticeship mimicry as the second layer involving copying and learning directly observed skilled behaviour.
  3. In the third layer, symbolic communication is used to invoke and/or modify skills.
