Laughter is an ancient universal reaction, which is typical not only for humans. Laughter exists in many animals, including primates and even rats.
When rats play with each other, they emit a characteristic squeak, which scientists liken to a laugh. This sound serves as a signal that they’re just playing, and not show aggression.
Even if rats are able to show such a reaction, it is not surprising that people use laughter in a very different situation.
For example, we use laughter to create and maintain social ties. We laugh when we want to show that we understand each other. Also laughter is a sort of indicator that helps to separate friend from foe.
Laughter as a means of social and emotional control is very effective, so there is nothing surprising in the fact that laughter is used by people both in personal and in social life. Laughter is a political tool.
