Based on my opinion, history is created to record the significant event occurs in the past and learn from it.
An example of that is on Science and Research – history of an individual thing help Scientists gather relevant information in comparing changes between past and present. It also provides them an idea to help predict what would be in the future. An example of this is whether changes.
Without any history recorded, we even not know what happened in the past, what culture we have and how our Ancestor survives. The thing we know is word-of-mouth from our elders which prone to errors and hard to believe since we didn’t see what happened in the past.
