Concrete is the foundation. It is the thing in which we build our society. A big slab laid out on a level ground has endless possibilities. We could build a church. A hot dog stand. A housing complex. It is the blank canvas of the Architect. It could be a new bicycle path waiting for that first set of tires to hit it. We owe a lot to the first pioneers of this substance. And even now, new innovations are happening all the time! New formulas, stains, and stamps. I’m sure you, dear reader, are within a stone’s throw of some cement as you sit. Do we take these things for granted? Of course. What is out of site is out of mind after all. But it is always best to set your foundation right. Then you can build your life on top, and not worry about any issues for years to come.
Imagine, if you will, sitting on a beach. Playing in the sand, and contemplating what the shape of your sand castle is going to look like. Obviously you need to take into consideration the tools you have. Do you have a bucket? Something that you could pack the sand into to give it some sturdiness? Maybe that is how the first formulations of concrete were formed. Some pliable mind using different materials to pack in together to make a wonderful castle. And what the discovered surely changed the way humans lived. Here in Canton, where I live, the evidence is everywhere. Blocks, bricks, slabs, fountains, parking garages. All here today because of some intrepid young learner, who took a chance on a few different things found in nature.
