    heir --

    Most of the useful knowledge to which the human race has become heir has been preserved and accurately recorded in Nature's bible.

    How to interpret heir in the foregoing sentence?

    Thanks

    "become heir(to) " = "inherited"
    "Most of the useful knowledge to which the human race has inherited has been preserved and accurately recorded in Nature's bible."
