A word of gratitude towards our ancestors


For my first short-format video, I simply want to express my gratitude to our ancestors.

To the billions of people who have walked this Earth before us.

We have existed for about 200,000 years now. Throughout this time, we have figured out how to survive and thrive on Earth. We have tried things, failed, learned, and tried again. Eventually, our ancestors perfected the science of living, and they have passed down that knowledge to us.

The cumulative knowledge that billions of humans have passed down to us is the greatest gift we have received. Imagine if every generation had to start from zero? Life would not be the same.

We are smart not because of our individual genius, but because billions of people have passed down their collective knowledge to us.
