'To motivate' and 'to spur' mean the same thing, so your sentence is saying cheese motivated them to motivate them. I don't understand the quotes around cheese, either, unless cheese is a substitute word for something else. Living beings covers all animal life, and although my dogs certainly get motivated over a cheese snack, it doesn't means they are learning anything, except how to beg.

 

Cheese is not the only factor that motivated humans to learn.
