Why did humans invent culture?

Why does culture even exist? What’s the point of it? Why doesn’t everyone just do whatever they want instead of following some stupid culture?

    "Doing what you want" is still a culture. Everything that's not biologically mandated, is culture. WEARING CLOTHES and sh!tting in a toilet and living inside is culture.

    No one likes to live in a world of uncertainty. Being able to predict another's behavior is essential in group societies.

    Culture is not “invented”. No-one invented it.

    Culture becomes a short-hand way of communicating a general consensus around behavior among a group. If done well, it eliminates having to renegotiate every interaction anew when you encounter a person or a group. Example of a cultural practice: Lining up at a checkout line rather than elbowing and climbing over everyone to get to the front (or pulling out a gun and shooting those ahead of you). Now cultural practices do change, especially as the original reasons for them to occur no longer exist.

    Culture is an abstract noun and thus cannot be invented.
