Switch your brains on, dudes! I’ve got a question for you.
What’s the most important thing ever invented in this world? The thing that contributed most to human evolution?
Now, I know most of you will say ‘the wheel’, right? But dude, you are wrongity wrong wrong wrong.
Okay, so I know that humans didn’t actually invent fire, but we did have to work out ways of creating and controlling it, which we did, about 600,000 years ago. Man, it was a total game changer. Suddenly, the primitive dudes had a way of keeping warm, they could move to colder places, cook food, make better tools, defend themselves, hunt for animals.
This stuff was the bomb. It still is.
From a little tacker, I’ve always been crazy-obsessed by fire, probably from the minute my oldies put a birthday candle in front of my face and I tried to eat it.
Fire can be friend and foe. It can be an end or a beginning. Hope or despair. All depends how you see it.
But I’ll tell you one thing for free. It’s never boring.
