Consciousness gifted us a singular conundrum - One must think! Spectacularly, Nature receded from unconscious control, and let man be. The quest ever since has been that of reason and raison d'être!
Muse we shall just for an ephemeral moment: Of many myths and legacies of human thought, the Hellenic era is usually credited for rationality; Socrates, Plato and Aristotle formed the bedrock of suppositions that continued to pique the curiosity of Homo sapiens. Greeks, as a civilization, delivered us from superstition to observation, from unknown, we began to explore the known realms of the environment by experiments, drafted laws...created reality and its understanding(s). This was new to man. Thinking, and thinking about thinking.
