What has driven us? Natural disasters and events which required biological and neurological adaptations and developments? Divine intervention or Ancient Alien manipulation? In reference to the latter two, and If so, whats the end game?

Well for me I think I find all three lacking.
The geological/archeological record seems too fragmented to be 100 % accurate, The religious view leaves out the massive amounts of evidence in the fossil records of the other hominids and Dinosaurs and the Ancient Alien angle is missing one crucial bit of proof, Real solid concrete physical evidence.

Gods associated with writing
Writing was a highly regarded skill and closely associated with the divine. Hieroglyphs were known as "medju netjer" ("words of the gods") and so it is not surprising that a number of the gods were depicted as scribes or associated with writing.
Thoth was the patron of scribes and was generally credited with the development of hieroglyphs. He was often depicted as a scribe and was responsible for recording the result of the "weighing of the heart" in the halls of judgment. Seshat was the Goddess of writing (and either the wife or daughter of Thoth). She recorded the life of each person on the leaves of the sacred persea tree and was the official biographer of the Pharaoh.
