Culture, on the other hand, is more of a by-product of civilization. Some people believe that the principal deity was fundamentally an Earth god, though his power was not limited to terrestrial matters, and took the form of a jaguar. The civilization of Ancient Egypt has been responsible for several lasting legacies for humankind as a whole, including pyramids, mathematical systems, practice of medicine, glass making techniques, and also paper, in its earliest form.

It was but natural to ask her why she wanted to hide, and she uttered vaguely what was rather a comment on my question: ``It was like fate.'' But I chose to take it otherwise, teasingly, because we were often like a pair of children. ``Oh, really,'' I said, ``you talk like a pagan.

These monuments can be divided into four classes: Free-standing in-the-round sculpture, such as the twins from El Azuzul or San Martin Pajapan Monument 1. The relatively gentle river valleys of Mesopotamia and Egypt saw long, slow declines in their environments, but when civilization came to the more mountainous periphery of the Mediterranean Sea, environmental damage came much faster and more dramatically, particularly as the Stone Age gave way to the Bronze and Iron ages.� Before civilization arrived, the Mediterranean�s periphery was heavily forested and, as with Lebanon, cedars were plentiful.� Today, Lebanon has several small groves of cedar, as a kind of museum of former greatness, and efforts to regenerate the cedar forests are ongoing.� Th e Mediterranean islands had their own megafauna extinctions about 12 kya, and island-dwarfed hippos and elephants went extinct soon after humans arrived.� Any land that can support hippos is blessed with an abundance of water, and islands such as Crete and Cyprus were blanketed with verdant forests before the rise of civilization.� As people fled from the increasingly barren and devastated Fertile Crescent, Bronze Age settlements began growing on the Mediterranean�s east end.� Duri ng the Babylonian reign of Hammurabi, wood was extremely scarce and his agents were charged with finding more wood.� Under Hammurabi, illegal woodcutting was a capital crime .� The s earch for wood extended past deforested Lebanon to the Mediterranean�s periphery, and Crete�s inhabitants began to trade wood for luxury items with Near East civilizations.� The nearly extinct Near East cedar was reserved for palaces and temples in Mesopotamia, but on Crete, cedar was so abundant that it was used for tool handles and had other mundane purposes. [667] � Trade with the Near East quickly boosted Crete from a forested hinterland, isolated in the eastern Mediterranean, into a powerful state, at least while its forests lasted. [668] � In early Minoan civilization, wood was used lavishly.� The Minoan success influenced the nearby Peloponnesian peninsula, and Mycenaean civilization began about 1600 BCE.� Minoans developed the still-undeciphered Linear A script.� Mycenaean Greeks developed Linear B, which has been largely decoded and was all elite accounting; it is likely that Linear A also was only accounting.� About 1700 BCE, the Minoan palaces were destroyed, probably by an earthquake.� The palaces were rebuilt on a grand scale, and settlements expanded in the Minoan golden age, which lasted about three centuries.� Then a swift decline collapsed the Minoan civilization by 1200 BCE.� Mycenaeans then annexed the island.

This “World’s Columbian Exposition” featured statues of the great explorer, replicas of his three ships, and commemorative stamps and coins. In the 1980s and 90s, however, these gave way to democratic governments. The Qu'ranic prescription to "draw their veils over their bosoms" became interpreted by some as an injunction to veil one's hair, neck and ears.

The response of a reader depends on the mood of the moment, so much so that a book may seem extremely interesting when read late at night, but might appear merely a lot of vapid verbiage in the morning.

Ancient music is designated by the characterization of the basic audible tones and scales. Examining the be lligerents in World War II makes the childish nature of imperial peoples evident.� Going back to the English civil wars, when Western states began losing their ability to rule by violence, elites began developing the science of controlling what people thought.� Ideological indoctrination to accept elite rule is as old as civilization, but with the rise of science and industry, indoctrination became scientific.� By the early 20th century, people such as Bernays and Lee boldly advocated their strategies for molding the public�s mind; terms such as � the manufacture of consent � and � necessary illusions � were openly used by such pioneers.� The basic premise was that the masses were too stupid to know what was good for them, so their collective mind needed molding by professional managers working on behalf of the �public good.�� In reality, it was manipulation of the masses for elite benefit.� Sell industrial waste to the public as medicine, make attacking the body the only path to healing, turn mass-murdering thieves into national heroes, portray a deadly addictive substance as a badge of freedom while medical authorities promote the same deadly substance, etc., and it all worked brilliantly.� I h ave watched people choose certain death over questioning their indoctrination .� While d rafting this chapter, I attended the funeral of a friend who died of a horrific cancer that quickly kills the patients (life expectancy of about a year after diagnosis when using mainstream treatments).� I learned long ago that disease patients almost never want to hear about alternatives, so I rarely volunteer the information.� However, that friend knew that I was familiar with alternatives and even asked me the last time we met what I would have done.� I replied with treatments which have cured that particular cancer, and my friend regarded my information with a kind of amused detachment, continued the orthodox treatments, and died six months later.
