    How to use "Gave way" in context?

    Since the dawn of time, humans have been giving way. Granted, there have been notable exceptions, such as smallpox and the Black Death, both of which wiped out large segments of the human population. Even so, over the centuries, humans have given way to other forms of life-from microscopic bacteria to elephants-just as surely as they have given way to other forms of technology. In the process, they have left behind a legacy of needless destruction and death.

    It has not always been this way. The first humans arrived on this planet over two million years ago, and their impact was negligible.
