The moment and place that the phenomenon of human government develop is lost in time. However, history does record the formations of early governments. About 5,000 years ago, the first small city-states appeared. By the third to second millenniums BC, some of these had developed into larger governed areas. Summer, Ancient Egypt, the Indus Valley Civilization, and the Yellow River Civilization.
On occasion a chief of a tribe was elect by various rituals or tests of strength to govern his tribe. Sometimes with a group of elder tribesmen as a council. The human ability to precisely communicate abstract, learned information allowed humans to become ever more effective at agriculture. And that allowed for ever increasing population densities. David Christian explains how this resulted in states with laws and governments.
As farming populations gather in larger and denser communities. Interactions between different groups increase and the social pressure rose until, in a striking parallel with star formation. New structures suddenly appear, together with a new level of complexity. Like stars, cities and states reorganize and energize the smaller objects within their gravitational field.
