A Ctcheglovian Cult of re-inter-ex-urbanization built sel for the millions of climate refugees that swarm the Great American Tropical Desolation, and per the dictates of the complex religious ritual of the Archi-Biological Process, it was time for sel to be left behind, and the Neo-Hacienda unfolded itself without them across the boundless jungles and swamps of the boiled over Earth.

Yet they lived. And they wanted to understand. And they federated backwards into the past to post shit

Allergy season is here and I'm having A Time to say the least

Here's something I think is cool about succulents: whenever one part of the plant gets sick or dies, the rest of it goes "Alright well that part's dead, let's seal it off and suck out ALLLLLLLLLL the water so we can still use it."

3) It looks like if I put offerings around the plant and cut off the dead parts and water it and generally take care of it the plant grows way taller and makes way more food than normal? (The offerings are probably rotting and fertilizing the soil but i don't know that because i'm some guy in 9,500 BC so i probably think it's magic. Either way i'm gonna keep doing it.)
4) whoops just invented agriculture

basically it went like this

1) wow plants are cool and I like them bc i'm a human and humans like plants, and also I can eat them sometimes
2) Clearly these plants are very good and i'm going to worship them to try and make them happy because i'm a human and humans love to anthropomorphize things

thinking about that one anthropology theory that says that early humans may have worshiped plants and in doing so accidentally invented agriculture

When I go back to school I should really consider minoring in horticulture. I feel like I would regret it if I didn't

Honestly I don't know shit about horticulture but I bet even I could do this. All I would need is water, seeds and dirt, a place to grow the plants and some sort of setup for measuring the factor I want to increase. I know how the scientific method works, I can read books. Why not.

There may be ways to replicate this that aren't so damaging to native environments. Most plants already have properties that regulate their local environments, managing temperature and humidity, aiding in soil health, filtering airborne particulates and toxins, the list goes on. And just like we bred corn and other subsistence plants to taste better and have higher calorie loads, we can breed plants to be better at absorbing humidity, or negating temperature shifts!

there's also historic examples of local climate engineering being done on much larger scales. Admittedly, most of these examples were largely accidental and had pretty negative outcomes, but my point is that it can be done.

Iowa used to be cool and dry, but once all the prairie got replaced with corn, that corn started pumping out so much moisture that now the state is hot and humid. Maybe not the best thing to have happen, but very interesting!
