    In my opinion as a Historian I think great human achievements, like the Pyramids are carried out by a collective will and determination towards a certain goal, the Pyramids were a collective effort of the People of the Nile to Glorify the Gods in this case the represantation on earth the Pharao, the Chinese built the Great Wall witht the dtermination to stop Barbarians to end what they believed to be the most advance civilization at the time, the Americans landed on the moon through a dtermination to show the world the dominance over the USSR, even during what is called the dark ages where the Church had dominance and was blocking many advances in science due to religious beliefs, great Cahtedrals and Churches were constructed too....so basically these achievements are made out of sheer determination and will on a particular point in time....but this is just my opinion....;D

    there are archaeological finds that support this theory, even though main stream science need more prrof for it, I personally think it is plausible and probably what happened in the past.
    even one of my question is pointing at such a scenario and what if it happens again:

History

Do you agree that 'History repeats itself'? If so, would you dare to face famine, war, or black death in the present version 2.0? Institutions have taught you that you must study history in order to 1.) know the origin of a place or thing, 2.) have facts in almost everything, 3.) have a glimpse of the past, or 4.) have an insight of the future. Anything else?
Is 'History repeats itself' an equivalent of predestination - trying to make things better but still, 'History repeats itself'? Reconsider that future cannot be determined by the past rather the choices made in the present. Sometimes, it's 'Past is past'.
