How long will you be remembered after the day that you die?
As I said in another article, we cannot say concretely what happens to us after we die, but this time we will also address a very interesting topic, namely how long we will be remembered after we die.
It is not known exactly when “writing” or “marking” certain events by icons was invented: protoscription. Although the difference between them is that one is used for communication, another for expression, we can say that both were used to “mark” certain events or certain people. People left certain writings through various members, but over time, most of the time, those who dealt with the preservation, documentation and recording of certain events were scribes.

- Written — Most of the time when one empire conquered another empire, historical writings were destroyed, so the main source of a historical fact was overwritten. This is where it came from: “history is written by winners”
- Icons — a language that at first was simple, to protect their writings and ensure their own value, many scribes have complicated this “language” to be as difficult to decipher. Thus, as the scribes who knew that language disappeared, the ability to understand those icons disappeared with them. Ex: Egypt
