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

@LexYeen
Duly noted! I've heard about permaculture before but haven't really looked into it that much yet. Any books you could recommend?

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