- Sentience— The souls ability to perceive or feel things, e.g., neolithic man
- Sapience— The spirit's greater wisdom over the soul, e.g., Homo Sapiens
Theirs was the dawn of civil behavior, a lengthy period over which reactive cavemen became proactive prototypes for thinking men, e. g., paleo and neolithic man.
But please, let's not get caught up in the Adam's Rib tales, spun to differentiate male from female, as those were fancifully told around campfires by the unknowing to entertain the unknowing. The fact that there has always been male and female is authenticated by archaeological digs and ancient artwork.
However, where those fairy tales stop and history begins is the fact that precursors to homo-sapiens wore no clothing.
By virtue of having been upgraded from homo-sentiens into homo-sapiens, to their dire embarrassment Adam and Eve abjectly found themselves naked and hid from God, who, as scripture recounts, gave them animal skins to wear, although it's more likely they killed and cut those skins for themselves.
