Now that you’ve learnt how to think (see Part II), here’s how to become civilised:
Hunt and gather until you’ve used it all up.
Move somewhere else and repeat. Invent nomadism.
Notice that when a seed drops from a plant, sometimes it sprouts. Invent agriculture.
Invent tools, and pay people to make them for you. Gather together and invent towns.
When other towns grow too close, merge with them, share skills and resources, and invent nations.
When other nations grow too close, subdue them. Invent war.
Conquer enough other nations to form a civilisation.
Believe that your civilisation will last forever. Wait.
‘Fail again. Fail better.’
