In his attempts to understand the world that he occupies, man has had two sets of questions: what? and how? Prior to recorded history and throughout nearly all of the time since then man has asked who created the universe around him.

To answer how requires knowledge of the subsets what and when, whose difficulty was so great that they were neglected and by default the question who long dominated. Eventually, the question why may be asked.
