In the process of becoming civilised and living in fully developed Nations, we have all come to rely on high levels of personal comfort in our lives. Our ancestors were happy to simply survive for they knew little else. Food to eat, water to drink and the barest protection from the climate and weather; those were their goals.
The Desire to Keep Warm
An animal skin and a cave may have been sufficient way back then but, even our ancestors saw and felt the problems associated with such a limited lifestyle. The invention of tools and crop farming gave these people more time to think about how to make things better. A big achievement was learning how to build shelters when naturally occurring caves were not available. Such development was more important in the Earth’s colder regions; particularly during times of extreme climate change such as the Ice Ages. Without the ability to construct dwellings, the human race may well have died out.
Sheltering inside and protected from the elements, gave people more time to think about what was wrong in their lives and how they could make things better. When it is bitterly cold outside, it is easy to spend time thinking about how to keep oneself warm.

An open fire exhausting through a hole in the roof led to the development of fireplaces and chimneys in many varieties.

Mere dwellings had been replaced by houses of ever increasing complexity and those living there demanded to be warm no matter which part of the house they were in.
