What is light and how does it propagate? How are rocks created and destroyed and how are they composed? What was the purpose of drawing and how was it drawn in the past? How did our grandparents and great-grandparents perform the arithmetic and algebraic calculations? How were distances, angles and time measured 100, 500, 2000, 4000 years ago?
