- You forgot language evolution. The languages have evolved very, very
much on the last 50.000 years. This give us the great advantageus of
more abstraction power, more learning capacity, more powerful tools to
change things. Embedded in our language though, we have most of the
ancient wisdom(?)! We inherited it for free. You could not doubt it if
you didn't have it in the first place... A samaller but very important
(even if overrated) part of the ancient wisdom is our inheritance of
doccumented facts and versions from the last 3.000 to 4.000 last years!
