The First Farmers

[This information comes from Seth Speaks.]
In an earlier post, The All in All That Is, I wrote, “We [along with every other particle and wave and string] in the universe were there all along waiting for the universe to settle into a level that could support life/reality as we know it. In fact, we were helping that to happen. Not only the human-potential was helping the potential-that-was-the-universe during its plasma phase right on down to this nano-second [and beyond] every possible creation was there right alongside us helping to create the NOW.”

So, now, jump ahead a few billion years:
Humans are on the planet now—in fact we’ve been here for quite a while. We’ve whittled ourselves down to one species—the one we have, so erroneously, called Homo Sapiens [Wise Man].

We’re coming up on the end of the hunter-gatherer period and have moved forward enough to be ready to begin settling down. The only thing is, we need a crop to plant. Something that will lend itself to being sown and harvested. Not all wild plants fill that bill. Some are too delicate to stand being handled a lot. Others can deal with being handled by people who know what they’re doing. But we didn’t. We were, at this point, decidedly amateur and were going to need a particularly robust cereal crop while we figured out what to do with it.

Well, someone came riding to the rescue.
Remember how, back in the posts, The Pre-infant Stage of Development and The Infant Soul, I wrote about the fact that we hang around on the planet for a while just checking it out? And how pre-infants also act like janitors—cleaning up stuff behind the scenes?
Well, those pre-infants along with souls who were between lives got together and helped push our species toward our agricultural stage.

There were four kinds of pre-wheat near the area that would become the city of Jericho. One wasn’t robust enough to be cultivated effectively but it tasted bad to most insects—always a plus. Another wasn’t all that drought tolerant and prefered to live in wooded areas where tree roots tended to hold the moisture in the soil [and humans would be too impatient and inept to be able to cultivate grain that was growing in the woods], but it tasted good to humans. In fact, it had long been gathered by several tribes. Another had large kernels but they were very strongly held inside their husks and would be difficult to harvest. The fourth also had large kernels. This one’s kernels weren’t wedded all that strongly to their husks. But it was top-heavy and would tend to hit the ground during a rain or even a fairly light wind. In other words, all the types had pluses and minuses.

We knew, already, that the area had lots of characteristics that would make it attractive to people: it had access to water, it had a fairly flat plain [easy to cultivate], the soil was light and would be easy to work, and so on.

So, together, those of us who were checking out the planet and those who were waiting to get back here pulled a Gregor Mendel. We cross pollinated those four types of wheat.
The rest is agricultural history.
