70. The Modern World and it’s New Avenues

When colonialism began, and contacts grew between civilisations more than ever before, Gods and religions had attained a stable place in the minds of the weak.

69. Intrinsic Effects

Culturally and economically, the societies grew in the most complex way possible. Comprehending each and every step in the evolution of cultures is a tremendous task, but it is a beautiful sight to see the steps involved in the changes.
