Summary/Abstract: I started writing this book with only one purpose – to define all civilizational concepts. What is the meaning of civilization, art, religion or language? These concepts have been discussed in thousands of books, hundreds of different definitions, but till today there has been no accepted general definition of any of them. Not even for the concept of civilization! There was only one way to set about defining these concepts – to trace their origins, to understand how and why each of them, separately, arose. Why has art become a necessity for humanity? Why were people forced to speak? Why, why and why? At the beginning I was thinking with my brain, an ordinary, Homo sapiens brain, about what I would do if I were living in the conditions of prehistoric people. Why would I speak, why would I draw, why would I cook? And all this led me to the same dead end that I had read about in the books. It was then I understood there had been a mistake. I realized that my way of thinking was the wrong way round. None of the primitive people decided to tame animals, because nobody knew what a tame animal was. None of the primitive people decided to talk, because nobody knew what a language was. None of the primitive people decided to cook, to draw, to get dressed, to formulate religions, because nobody knew what food preparation, art, clothes or religion were. So, how has man created these conditions? The answer is very simple: unconsciously!
