A little blurb on dinosauroid cultural-technological development.
With saurian technology, the route to modern stone-blade technology was just as alternate to our own as was their route to intelligence. While our ancestors developed the hand-axe and honed their stone-throwing skills to scavenge kills, the saurians ancestors were developing more and more advanced pointy sticks. Beginning with twig and leaf tools for grub-fishing, these developed into larger proto-spears, for stabbing into burrows and dens of small mammals and birds. These developed into hardier stabbing spears, which became the main tool of

Avisapiens visual communication is a development of the ancestral proto-dinosauroids visual displays - of dominance, submission, play, fear - that became, over millennia, the cues and modifiers in much more complex communication.
