Ah ha….

My theory concerning the development of the “modern” mind – modern humans – is that when two “different species” of hominins  interbred (i.e, neanderthal and archaic humans, or neanderthal and denisovian) something happened with the wiring of the brain which enabled the telling of stories, imagination concerning possible futures, and hence the passing of culture generation through generation through stories….This article below may suggest this theory is correct….
