Ozymandias

Yes, a lecture and career based on refreshingly simple and honest research into an area of science that many took for granted and had never considered questioning empirically. We are who we are as a species because we harnessed the power (energy) of fire through cooking to facilitate the evolution of our brains.

Of course, that understanding was always intuitively known by our ancestors. In Greek mythology we humans told the story of Prometheus who stole fire from the Gods and thereby set man apart from other animals on the earth, facilitated the process of civilisation and opened us up to science and the arts.
