Paper made mankind literate. When he became literate, he did not only learned to read and write but also understood the world around him better. Through the use of paper, his ideas which used to be foreign to others can now be documented and communicated and thus the learning exchange began for ideas not only to spread but also to grow. Through paper also, we understood the arguments that surround us and how they evolve for our use and understanding (Lunsford and Ruszkiewicz 187). This was revolutionized by the invention of printing press where thoughts can now be written on paper en masse and the population became educated (Dittmar 1133). Through mass education using the medium of paper, we have learned to contrive tools, machines, and technology to make the once crude life to be convenient (Szczepanski). So paper made our lives better.
