For 10 years, we have studied physics, chemistry, and astronomy in school. Then, for 5 years, we study advanced mathematics and strength of materials at the university. We are informed about the water cycle in nature, how clouds form, and how precipitation falls, but… when a drought comes, we forget about our education and start praying to gods, offering sacrifices like black sheep, just as the ancient Incas or our shaman ancestors did. As if millennia of human development, scientific and technological progress never happened. In an instant, we regress to the Middle Ages.
