From the Paper:

"In history, the Stone Age was the longest of all the ages. Over time, older tools were used to create new tools, and as the tools improved, the speed of technology also improved. In the present day, for example, computers are being used to aid in complex projects and do calculations beyond human ability. They are tools that humans use to increase the speed in which they are discovering new technologies. During the Stone Age, however, there were no technologies before stones. It took millions of years for the evolution of technology to aid humans into the next age, the Bronze Age."
