    Origin of Intellignce in the child - Jean Piaget: My father told me of how when he was a very young child, below 10 years old he was smoking in the streets with all the other little children, as an adult he did not smoke(this was during the war years), and his father just the same - he smoked all his adult life, three "star" and "drum". My father called it another "dummy",something a baby uses to comfort himself, and Piaget has this to say about the end of egocentricism :- This diversification of schemata during which generalizing and rocognitory assimilation are on a par with the progress of accommodation explains in part how interest in the objects grasped follows purely functional interest. But it is chiefly the co-ordination of prehension with sucking and vision that accounts for the progressive objectifying of the universe in its relations to the activity of the hands.- This seems to describe exactly, smoking.
