Learning of Life - Current and Past

Hey Everyone.  I was wondering, why is it that we are always trying to understand the same thing that those before us were trying to understand?

Maybe we just have the same questions and no one ever found the answer.
Maybe because we don't understand what our ancestors already knew.
Maybe we have the answers, and we just haven't put forth the energy required to actually understand what is in front of us.

"The scriptures also enlarge our memory by helping us not forget what we and earlier generations have learned. Those who either don’t have or ignore the recorded word of God eventually cease to believe in Him and forget the purpose of their existence.

In Tyndale’s day, scriptural ignorance abounded because people lacked access to the Bible, especially in a language they could understand. Today the Bible and other scripture are readily at hand, yet there is a growing scriptural illiteracy because people will not open the books. 
Consequently they have forgotten things their grandparents knew."

There must be some other reason for us to be interested in what has happened to our families in the past.
