More than any other technical innovation, the control of fire marked humanity�s rise.� In his The Descent of Man, Darwin called making fire humanity�s greatest achievement.� The only possible exception that he noted was the invention of language.� Even today, in our industrialized and technological world, almost all of our energy practices are merely more sophisticated ways of controlling fire.� The initial control of fire was at once a social act, a mental act, and a technical act. [502] �Although making stone tools represented the big break between the human line and its ancestry, it only allowed apes to mimic what other animals could do.� Stone tools represented artificial claws, teeth, and jaws of animals far larger and more capable than apes at killing and eating flesh and bones.� Protohumans with stone tools could scavenge more effectively and maybe defend themselves and even attack others, but it was not initially different in kind from what other animals could do, and was a pathetically small advantage when their first stone tools were merely rocks with sharpened edges, about on the order of brass knuckles.� Would you want to fend off a lion predation attack (and perhaps multiple lions) with a rock, and at night?� Controlling fire was the radical break from all other organisms that ever lived on Earth Augustus: The Life And Times Of Rome's Greatest Emperor.

American n ationalism reached orgiastic dimensions by 1890 .� The Columbian Exhibition, held in 1893, was powered with Tesla�s alternating current and American �progress� seemed limitless.� At that time, other imperial aspirants were feverishly trying to catch up.� The USA forced Japan into the international arena in order to exploit it, and Germany/Prussia rose in the late 19th century.� Japan ke pt the West out for centuries, until Perry�s �diplomatic� invasion of 1853, and Japanese elites could easily see what colonization would mean to Japan, with Bengal and other colonized regions not far away.� Japan avoided India�s and China�s fates by a steep ascent to industrialization, transitioning from a feudal land where the sword and musket prevailed to winning a war with China in 1894 and beating Russia in 1905.� After Napoleon inflicted the Enlightenment onto Germany, it also began playing catch-up with the West.� Unfortunately for Germany and Japan, the UK, France, Russia, and the USA had already laid claim to most of the world.� Japan, an island nation like the UK with even fewer natural resources, began to look at the Asian mainland as the USA looked at North America: theirs for the taking under a �Manifest Destiny� ideology. [840] �G ermany had plenty of coal but few other industrial resources, and it developed a similar � lebensraum � ideology toward Eastern Europe, and Hitler emulated the USA�s Indian reservation system with his concentration camps, and he admired the �efficient� methods of genocide that the USA used on its natives. [841] � When Hitler came to power, Germany had to buy 33 of 35 essential industrial materials on the world market, while the USA, the UK, and France could largely obtain them by plundering their colonies or conquered lands in their contiguous polities. [842] � Germany could not expand without encroaching on another empire. [843] � The Western Hemisphere was long ago declared off-limits by the USA, and the UK, France, and Russia controlled nearly everything else, so there was little opportunity for Germany or Japan to garner any plunder.� Germany had to content itself with scraps from the Scramble for Africa, and both imperial newcomers enthusiastically raped China during the Boxer Rebellion, along with the other imperial powers.� But their opportunities were limited in a colonized Earth, and that, far more than any other reason, led to the World Wars Mirror, Mirror: A History Of The Human Love Affair With Reflection. On num erous fronts, humanity is staring into the abyss, primarily due to our energy practices.� The USA's Persian Gulf War of 1991 and invasion of Iraq in 2003 may be seen by future historians, if there are any, as the first salvos of World War III, as humanity fights over Earth's last remaining high-EROI energy resources.� One of Einstein�s most famous attributed quotes was, �I do not know with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones.�� Maybe some of us survive that holocaust and the living will envy the dead .� Maybe we will avoid fighting over hydrocarbons, but the oceans will rise as climate changes more dramatically and billions are displaced.� That will trigger global famine and a different kind of World War III, as nations fight over food (and maybe water), not oil.� Merely contemplating such scenarios can drive people to drink and worse.� Humanity stands on the chasm�s edge today, and hardly any people know or care, as their immediate self-interest marks the limit of their awareness.� It has always been this way, when people are just trying to survive and deaden the pain of their existences. �The intense denial reactions that Brian encountered when he played the Paul Revere of FE were standard The Century of Hope, a Sketch of Western Progress from 1815 to the Great War.
