Mankind has forever strived to learn. The tribe with the better weapons can hunt more efficiently, defend itself better and take what it lacked from their neighbours. With the advent of farming and the ability to domesticate wild animals, the first civilisations began to form. Better housing, advances in medicine and the ability to pass knowledge down through the generations increased mankind s knowledge of himself and his environment.
