Why build theories?

For genetic algorithms and evolution* to get from some state A to some distant state B requires that one or more quasi-continuous paths exist from A to B through some intermediate states C, D, E, etc. The creation of theories of the world can allow for larger designed leaps from A to B.
Theories also are a compact way of organizing knowledge speeding up search and reducing the memory capacity required.

* which created brains and mind
