We suspect that somewhere around the Stone Age, our African ancestors learned to do something that would change the evolutionary cycle of humanity: they learned to control fire. I can’t imagine the look on the Neanderthal woman’s face when she came across her first fire. It must have been quite a terrifying rush. And yet, soon after, she stepped closer and closer to the flame, until she touched it and then learned to re-create it to do unbelievable things.
Not without its brimstone, fire has surely cost humanity a “not so insignificant” amount of pain and suffering over the last six million years, but in the end, we would clearly be remiss not to respect the impact of it on evolution, history, and human survival.
