One has to wonder [ well I do anyway ] about how the 'ancients ' [ primitive cultures ?] figured it all out , I mean what spurred them on and on [ with trial and error , learning processes ? possibly down generations ] to find it just right ....

I agree.
It is utterly amazing how such things are developed...sometimes I think there is a genetic knowledge that earlier peoples had access to. We in contemporary society have just forgotten how to hear that inner knowledge.
