Lesson 6: Once upon a time
Today a more entertaining article then all the previous ones. One that starts with a very dramatical openingsentence; Once upon a time. Everyone has things they can imagine after hearing these four words. No other animal has such an interesting history then us human beings. Even if we consider the fact most people don't really know much about their own history, most can still imagine so much of it. Life has been so difficult to lots of humans through the ages they had to come up with all sorts of ideas to keep themselves alive. We hardly ever realize how tough life must have been for people thousands of years ago.
Humans consider themselves to be evolved. This is a huge misconception. Our tools have evolved. We use robots and computers instead of hammers and shovels. Just to prove this; how many of us would be capable of surviving in a hostile enviroment like the Earth whas before civilisation came up? No police, no millitairy, no court, no hospitals, only you're body and mind to solve every crisis you come across. Most modern people would probably die in such a world. They grew up in a world with so many tools and services available to help them stay alive and safe they never even learned any survival skills at all. To most of us, surviving is nothing more then having a job and doing our groceries at the local supermarket. We never hunted an animal, never picked any wild fruits or vegetables and never had any experiences in fighting for survival. Since the day we started putting so much efford in upgrading our tools and properties we neglected the only two things which will always belong to us; our body and our mind.
