From when humans learned to write ...
From ancient times, after humans learned writing and impress their thoughts with marks of a language and made more easily the means in order to write, many millions of humans lived. It is useful we observe, that from all millions people, only a small number of humans wrote their thoughts, experiences and observations so that their work constitute a valuable contribution in the human research and science, for the conquest of truth and knowledge.
This here scornful observation recorded, without we want decrease the contribution and success that perhaps all people, each one with own ability accomplished, and many times with sacrifice of their life itself. Also, we do not ignore that the possibility for a voluminous intellectual production presupposes the most important advantage for the survival, which does not depend only from the persons. If the survival were not a difficult fight for a lot of people, then sure many more humans would have contributed for the scientific research and in the surpassing of most foolish thoughts. But, if it should we appreciate as contribution and as intellectual conquest from straight line exclusively a concrete intellectual work, as a philosophical, scientific or artistic or technological work that was created by only one person, then we will count an impressively small number of persons up to some centuries ago. An exceedingly small number compared to number of people that lived in Earth or even compared to those who could spend time and thought for such intellectual work. If we even more selectively appreciate the intellectual work that it reached in us, particularly as is the writings of Aristotle and up to 15 centuries afterwards, then we will count the authors with the fingers of our hands! The most people focused their forces for ensuring of their presence, for their safety and social relationships, for their relaxation and needs, for the resolution of their differences and for many other that we can conclude (and not only we imagine). Think only the intellectual work of Aristotle with the level of knowledge that was widespread in his time and compare, how a lot of people think even today 2500 years afterwards, for the same questions…
This mass characteristic of human history should not be ignored neither be downgraded neither be covered with the excuse, that the fight for the survival did not encourage the humans to allocate time for thoughts and intellectual creations. This mass characteristic of history should not be ignored also with common ascertainment, that we live in order to make a lot of other things and not only we search and learn. The simple thought, that a minimal persons had the advantage to live with ensured their expenses and services for their survival is excessive, after this thought with a few words disappears the daily time of 24 hours. Thus the inward power of such an intellectual wish and its meaning that can give in human life are downgraded, contrary to a multitude of pointless activities of human plurality (that begin from their anxiety and blind and stupid expectations).
