I listened to this while writing this post, try it while you read :o)
This is the sixth in a series of posts reflecting on our willingness to remember and the quality of that knowledge. These posts should be read in order of publication. Starting with number six, for example, would make no sense to the reader. Happy reading!
It is as a result of this long process of repetition and association, sometimes real, sometimes fictitious, that humans began to understand certain parts of their environment. On the other hand, one can think that regions of abundance have had to be preserved from this obligation to a certain extent. After all, isn’t necessity the mother of invention? This expression attributed to Plato can have no more meaning than it has in our exercise. Plato, until proven otherwise, was not aware of these archaeological facts relating to early humans. His phrase applied in its context, past, present and future. Could he have believed that his adage would be applicable to every living being as demonstrated by Darwin two millennia later?
The cycle of seasons, tides, lunar cycles, migratory patterns, all revolutions of time which have attracted the attention of humans to reflect on them motivated by necessity. In the absence of necessity, humans do not think about these things. We could also say that the human tendency to always try to find solutions to different life situations is the result of natural selection. Have the smartest been the most successful in surviving?
