What are the evolutionary causes of mental time travel?

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 30 (3):329-330 (2007)
Abstract
We are not entirely satisfied with the evolutionary explanation provided by Suddendorf & Corballis (S&C) for why only humans should be capable of advanced mental time travel. General social factors do not suffice, given that other primates are also highly social. We discuss the evolutionary mechanisms that have generated mental time travel typical to humans, focusing on ecological factors
