    History repeats but we don't seem to be able to learn from our mistakes. Some also think that past actions can be predictors of future events-see probability and the roll of a dice. Knowing our ancestors can give us an incite as to how and why we became as we are. A study of past events can lead to better outcomes in the future - military tactics are partly based on this premise. If we study each step of a process we can go back to see where we made vital mistakes - medical progress, thalidomide - crop development, can't remember this specific case but some cross cultivation failed badly and in a deadly manner (could have been done safely with gene splitting). To be continued................. again and again until we get it right.
