I actually don't recall where I read that. It was one of the following 2 books:

https://www.amazon.com/Sapiens-Humankind-Yuval-Noah-Harari/d...

https://www.amazon.com/Tribe-Homecoming-Belonging-Sebastian-...

I wouldn't be surprised if the book derived that number from the link you gave either.

I live in a world where 90% of my friends and family believe that they came from the sins of a woman who decided to eat an apple. I recently read a book called Sapiens, this book really drilled into my mind that we homo-sapiens are a derivative of a single great ape that had two daughters, one that became the ancestor of all chimpanzees and the other all humans.

If human origin interests you there is a great 10 minute video from the Youtube Kurzgesagt channel that lead me to read Sapiens.

All great apes have hierarchical, territorial, aggressive societies.

Most don't have maps though.

Humans primarily distinguish themselves by their creative abstractions and rationalizations to justify fighting/killing other tribes...also imaginary friends in the sky who demand it, nonexistent differences in DNA, etc., etc. Territorial disputes are the least imaginary of the lot.

(Desmond Morris's 'The Naked Ape' is an interesting look at how human behavior relates to apes - spoiler alert, a lot of similarities https://www.amazon.com/Naked-Ape-Zoologists-Study-Animal/dp/... ... I've heard good things about 'Sapiens' as well https://www.amazon.com/Sapiens-Humankind-Yuval-Noah-Harari/d... )
