The writing It arises between the 3500 and the 3000 a.C. by ancient Sumerian in Mesopotamia. They found a way to safely keep the information without having to keep in mind and worked out a system to manage it on purpose mathematical data.
Initially writing only recorded numbers and the first texts that have survived were limited to economic documents, billings for fees and ownership certificates.
It was a kind of writing that is only partially suitable to represent information related to very limited areas.
But in the end the Sumerians widened to more signs their system and in addition to dull lists of digits, they were able to process the cuneiform writing, a total desk system.
This system also spread to Egyptians with the hieroglyphic writing and from them a little’ anywhere in the ancient world.
They also began to write other things besides the monotonous made endless lists figures. They came to light writings different but the most important application of writing continued to be, for a long time, to list and produce mathematical data.
Initially imagination works they were indeed transmitted orally, we think the Iliad in Greece or the Mahabharata in India.
It was then that it came to light that break of writing that continues, namely the distinction between writing born to catalog documents, formulas and tables and where the data are able to be associated freely through the design.
The first writing uses catalogs and mental places where storing all the data and writing of bureaucracy, a dimension where all things are kept in separate drawers, you get what deadlines, one for certificates and one for bills. And if not, it would be impossible to find a document.
Then there is a writing style that leaves no room for thought in free association, imagination and is the writing that goes beyond the bureaucratic dimension collar and tries to affirm the holistic thinking in front of the subdivision and the bureaucracy.
And 'that the Writing poetry, the novel, imagination generally.
The writing has changed our way of thinking and seeing the world and only in us is the ability to prioritize, to apply to a type of writing relative to each other.
Our preference in this direction is a measure of how we exist, to think and to decide freely, be men or simply bureaucrats.
