Thinking back to the beginning of humankind, what a strange event it must have been to ‘awake’ as a conscious creature. Just imagine, what a strange thing for an organic being of tissue and bone to consider its own purpose — for the first time. At the beginning of culture, there must have been discussions of how best to do things — how do you even do things, when there is no historical precedent? Imagine the first funeral (what to do with the dead?); the first painting (why depict anything at all?); the first idea of a god (why was there such a need to seek explanation, when other animals need none?).
