    My point is that everything and all started at the lowest level of things, like flying with the Space Shuttle can be seen as some evolution of shooting the arrow. The evolution of man can be seen as in a straight linear way, from nomad, to hunter, gatherer, settler, farmer, slave, worker, socialist,... up to modern man where now the line continues over consumer, in individual, hyper- indivi- dual,.... fill in the blanks for the future.
