Even though Heyerdahl did not conquer countries, his own perseverance made him prove his theory to scientists and people who disagreed with his theory. If Alexander did not conquer most of the land he probably could have lived longer. If Columbus was not determined to find a new route to the Indies then who knows what could have happened to the Western part of the globe? If Heyerdahl stopped caring about his theory when people told him it was impossible and changed his mind, he could have learned other things during his time.

Mesoamerica was yet another emerging early civilization that did not experience in a cultural unity such as China or Egypt. There were separate different societies that rose to power and fell with time, leaving marks of historical facts that prove that these societies had continuities and changes. Thesis: In Mesoamerica, the repeating style of patriarchy occurred throughout civilizations because the men dominated in roles; there was also a continuity in how there was always a single leader that governed. Meanwhile, the development of trade lacked in all of the societies but one because they collectively focused on their evolution/change in religion.
