S&F. - for the OP has asked a very important question.
Yes. You are quite right. If we want our future generations to know how we lived, wee would have to leave them some records of our life.
May be after a 100o years our descendants will find our records and marvel at what we have done or ,make fun of our primitive technology - but in all
means, they will learn of our ways.
But what Medium to record our history and achievements in?
CD/DVD/BR disc electromagnetic storage? No way. In case there is a nuclear war, every nuclear explosion creates Electro Magnetic Pulses which can wipe
out complete data off the electromagnetic storage mediums. DVD/CD/BD don't last - they disintegrate.
Maybe, something strong, sturdy and impenetrable to EMPs. Some time-capsules encased in such materials.
We will have to educate ourselves and warn our descendants of the futility of war.
or we will soon fall to a stage when we will have to carve out warnings to our future generations on STONE ITSELF.
