Well, let's be honest here. Fire is the primary reason we, as a species, exist.
Our discovery of fire allowed us to protect ourselves from our predators, helped us cook the game we hunted, and with said game befriend wolves which
became our companions against new threats. In addition, our use of fire allowed us to cook meet, discover new proteins and nutrients which contributed
to our enlarged brains and basically made us the most intellectually advanced species on the Earth. Fire is also the way in which we kept warm,
navigated caves which we lived in, and were able to kick start any type of industry (such as smelting and metallurgy). Fire is everything to us as a
As for weapons, communication, and travel... that is just because of the profit we can make off of these things. If money were without value, we'd
have less technological advancements because no one would care about competition, or advancing the way we do things. The drive to provide the best,
which in turn allows us, as consumers and employers, to live the best, is the most human thing anyone can point to about us. No other species strives
so hard for comfort, safety, familiarity, and continuous advancement the way we do.
It's a good thing we're concerned with those avenues of life; they are the roads by which will blaze a future which touches unimaginable heights.
