Here are some thoughts on writing.
It may be argued that farming is humankind’s greatest invention. Once our ancestors figured out they did not have to hunt and gather to survive but could actually stay in one place and have a relatively stable source of food, the basis for modern life was established. Cities became centers of civilization.
As people prospered in the cities and society became more sophisticated a way had to be found to keep records, to write down knowledge so that the knowledge could be passed down accurately. Writing was invented.
Try to imagine the world without writing.
