Did you ever see an infant playing with a pencil or a pen? If you did, did you try to recognize the message in the lines drawn or points connected? Did you ever think that infant was trying to say something? Did you ever try to imagine it? If you did not try to imagine, next time you try that. That is the earliest form of art of that infant.
Did you ever think that some humans 45,000 years ago might have tried to draw something? If they did, what might have been their purpose? If they had a purpose, what might it have been? Did you ever see ancient cave paintings? If so, did you try to imagine what they might have been saying?
