Abstract: Rituals are universal in all societies. What are the mechanisms that have led strangers to cooperate , resulting in widespread complex societies? Why would humans voluntarily place themselves into painful ritualistic acts? Synchronized movement and physical discomfort are common features of rituals. We believe that these features can help explain the above questions. [2nd Award]
