So when culture developed it changed people and their families so no one would be the same. And the Mesopotamians believed that when they grow crops they need to give it to the gods and they would give it back to thee priests to give to you. this way every one would almost be equals to each other.

Then it impacted the innovations all of the different shaped tools and the new tools that were created. Finally, it was an achievement because it helped us achieve all of our goal today.
