The Tree of Human Civilization

If the history of civilization is compared to a fruit bearing tree, then the ancient mythologies are the tree’s roots which tether humanity to the rich soil. The religions are the tree’s trunk which support the tree’s branches, leaves, and fruits. The actions of all humans and the chance events are the tree’s branches which take sections of humanity into random directions. The philosophical theories are the tree’s leaves which convert the light of the sun, or human experiences and learning, into wisdom. The scientific, technological, and social advancements are the tree’s fruits.
