HISTORY OF CHINESE CHARACTERS

The history of chinese characters is that it started as PICTOGRAPHS. It still is based on pictographs, but not all of them. They evolved to here. For example, the "tree" and "forest" characters are a like and look like simple trees. I really used a sharpie to write all of this, but if I were a true chinese boy (which I am) I would have done it in ink and a brush or a caligraphic pen. There are 3,000-4,000 chinese characters in modern day. How do they search the internet I don't know (pretty big keybaord then). These aren't serious
