The great historian and philosopher, Will Durant, complained that most of us spend too much time on the last 24-hours and too little time on the last 6,000 years.
It is ironic that in the heart of California’s Silicone Valley, whose industry is devoted very much to the future, there is an edifice honoring the 6,000-year-old civilization of the early Egyptians.
Mankind’s earliest great civilization developed about 6,000 years ago in the fertile Nile Valley. Because the soil was so bounteous those early Egyptians had time to think.
This social laboratory gave birth to mathematics, writing, music, art and architecture. An early Egyptian Pharaoh also first propounded monotheism.
