For now, let’s talk about some of the oldest civilizations to have ever existed in the world.We are talking about the civilizations that we know, as fact, existed for real, unlike the ones that are shrouded by myths and beliefs (Atlantis, Lemuria and Rama civilizations to name a few).
The Incas was the largest Empire in North America in the Pre-Columbian era.
This civilization flourished in the areas of present day Ecuador, Peru and Chile and had its administrative, military and political center located at Cusco which lies in modern day Peru.
The Incas had their societies pretty well established, and the empire was in a rapid bloom since it’s beginning.
The Incas were devout followers of the Sun God Inti.
They had a king who was referred to as “Sapa Inca” meaning the child of the Sun.
The first Inca emperor Pachacuti transformed it from a modest village to a great city laid out in the shape of a puma.
He went to expand the tradition of ancestor worship.
In the course of human evolution, at a certain point in time, the idea of living in a group with mutual understanding and dependency became a very useful and practical lifestyle.
From such small isolated groups, communities were formed.
Then came the societies which in due time became a civilization.
How the human mentality and psychology led to this huge change is still a popular topic among the historians and anthropologist, and a major discussion for another day.
