81:0.1 REGARDLESS OF THE ups and downs of the miscarriage of the plans for world betterment projected in the missions of Caligastia and Adam, the basic organic evolution of the human species continued to carry the races forward in the scale of human progress and racial development. Evolution can be delayed but it cannot be stopped.

and this is the way it is designed by the gods, the rebellers can't do hardly anything against the physical moving forward. 44:0.15 To material beings the spirit world is more or less unreal; to spirit beings the material world is almost entirely unreal, being merely a shadow of the substance of spirit realities.

these lanonandeks being spirits experience their own realms as shadowy.

81:0.2 The influence of the violet race, though in numbers smaller than had been planned, produced an advance in civilization which, since the days of Adam, has far exceeded the progress of mankind throughout its entire previous existence of almost a million years.

just a small amount of adams's blood produced the same effects almost as if he was here to today and we were destined to get a small amount of adam's blood regardless of how fast he failed.

81:1.1 For about thirty-five thousand years after the days of Adam, the cradle of civilization was in southwestern Asia, extending from the Nile valley eastward and slightly to the north across northern Arabia, through Mesopotamia, and on into Turkestan. And climate was the decisive factor in the establishment of civilization in that area.

the egyptians certainly had a great civilization for a while somehow as explained in tub in other parts of the book.

81:1.2 It was the great climatic and geologic changes in northern Africa and western Asia that terminated the early migrations of the Adamites, barring them from Europe by the expanded Mediterranean and diverting the stream of migration north and east into Turkestan. By the time of the completion of these land elevations and associated climatic changes, about 15,000 B.C., civilization had settled down to a world-wide stalemate except for the cultural ferments and biologic reserves of the Andites still confined by mountains to the east in Asia and by the expanding forests in Europe to the west.

i would have loved to have lived in that stalemate.

81:1.3 Climatic evolution is now about to accomplish what all other efforts had failed to do, that is, to compel Eurasian man to abandon hunting for the more advanced callings of herding and farming. Evolution may be slow, but it is terribly effective.

more advanced morally, not in skill. man will progress morally, inexorably to the goals of god.

81:1.4 Since slaves were so generally employed by the earlier agriculturists, the farmer was formerly looked down on by both the hunter and the herder. For ages it was considered menial to till the soil; wherefore the idea that soil toil is a curse, whereas it is the greatest of all blessings. Even in the days of Cain and Abel the sacrifices of the pastoral life were held in greater esteem than the offerings of agriculture.

the hunter and the herder looked down on the farmer for owning slaves even in ancient times. soil toil is necessary to grow the food that is appropriate for man.

81:1.5 Man ordinarily evolved into a farmer from a hunter by transition through the era of the herder, and this was also true among the Andites, but more often the evolutionary coercion of climatic necessity would cause whole tribes to pass directly from hunters to successful farmers. But this phenomenon of passing immediately from hunting to agriculture only occurred in those regions where there was a high degree of race mixture with the violet stock.

these climate changes may have been spiritually propagated to get man to be more moral by farming instead of hunting. i wish i was violet color, light purple.

81:1.6 The evolutionary peoples (notably the Chinese) early learned to plant seeds and to cultivate crops through observation of the sprouting of seeds accidentally moistened or which had been put in graves as food for the departed. But throughout southwest Asia, along the fertile river bottoms and adjacent plains, the Andites were carrying out the improved agricultural techniques inherited from their ancestors, who had made farming and gardening the chief pursuits within the boundaries of the second garden.

see seed grow, plant seed and watch seed grow. the evolutionary people had none of the hints, clues, learnings and advantages of spirit knowledge that those of the second garden had, that's the way it is for the poor evolutionaries, they have to figure everything out for themselves.

81:1.7 For thousands of years the descendants of Adam had grown wheat and barley, as improved in the Garden, throughout the highlands of the upper border of Mesopotamia. The descendants of Adam and Adamson here met, traded, and socially mingled.

wheat is bird's food, not man's food. 76:3.7 Up to the time of leaving the first garden, Adam and his family had always subsisted on fruits, cereals, and nuts.

cereal - any plant of the grass family yielding an edible grain, as wheat, rye, oats, rice, or corn. eating any of this raw is good, but not cooking it, that's what i meant by wheat is bird's food, it's not, but it comes cooked all too often.

81:1.8 It was these enforced changes in living conditions which caused such a large proportion of the human race to become omnivorous in dietetic practice. And the combination of the wheat, rice, and vegetable diet with the flesh of the herds marked a great forward step in the health and vigor of these ancient peoples.

and it is the pleasant conditions we live in today of ready access to food in an advanced and modern civilization that should restore us to eating just fruits, nuts and cereals, all raw, uncooked.
