I was thinking like that for a while to. I thought of a "Primitive" age
before the nomadic age, with techs like

Awareness of Death-+-Theories of Afterlife-+-Basic Religion (followed by
Organized Religion in the nomadic age)

Oral Language-+-Oral Tradition-+-(then nomadic techs)

But then I dropped it out because it was to basic. Thoose things were
present in species before our species (Homo Sapiens) or they were some
of the very first things that Homo Sapiens developed. I wanted to limit
the scope of the simulation to people who are essentially biologically
similar to the humans living now. I thought it would be too much to add
techs like "Upright Walking", "Sparse Hairing" and a "Neanderthal"
nation. Were would it start then, perhaps tech: "Mammary Glands",
"Placenta", or even "Living on Land"!
