Local communities were in a standing intercourse, according to the circumstances. Man y plant families incorporate silica into their structures.� Diatoms also incorporate silica, and those are among the few life forms that use silicon, although it is one of Earth�s most plentiful crustal elements .� Diatoms seem to gain energy advantages by using silica, and plants seem to have structural advantages, but it is thought that plants also used silica for a defensive measure, as it helps make plants unpalatable.� Eating plants full of silica structures, called phytoliths, is like chewing sand.� This is particularly true with grasses, as phytoliths make chewing them a tooth-wrecking process, particularly for ruminants and their thorough chewing.� Grazing herbivores have heavily enameled hypsodont teeth (also called high-crowned teeth) to deal with the silica and generally tough grassland vegetation .� In North America, hypsodont herbivores proliferated while those without that heavy enamel (also called low-crowned teeth), which were browsers instead of grazers, declined.� By about nine mya, North American browsers had largely vanished and grazers dominated the new grasslands. [421] � Earth kept cooling and drying, and fewer than seven mya, steppe vegetation began replacing savanna-like grasslands, and forests were decimated.� This led to the greatest mass extinction in pre-human North America in the Cenozoic Era, as many species of horses, mastodonts, bears, dogs, and small predators went extinct, as well as mice, beavers, and moles. [422] � Asia and Africa were hit similarly, although not quite as hard as North America seemed to be, but South America and Australia hardly seemed affected at all. [423] � New Zealand�s surrounding seafloor changed from warm-water communities to the Southern Ocean communities that it has today. [424] The Te thys Ocean finally evaporated, literally, at the Miocene�s end, and it was a spectacular exit.� As part of the collision of Africa and Europe, Morocco and Spain smashed together and separated the Atlantic Ocean from the Mediterranean Sea.� Then the entire Mediterranean dried out, as there was not enough regional precipitation to replenish the evaporation.� Then the crashing Atlantic waves eroded through the rock and the Atlantic again filled the Mediterranean Sea in floods that may have been Earth history's most spectacular.� The grinding continents then made another rock dam, the Atlantic was cut off again, and the Mediterranean once again dried up.� That pattern happened more than 40 times between about 5.8 and 5.2 mya.� Each drying episode, after the rock dam again separated the Atlantic from the Mediterranean, took about a thousand years and left about 70 meters of salt on the floor of the then Mediterranean Desert.� The repeated episodes created 2,000-to-3,000-meter-thick sediments of gypsum, which is formed from evaporating oceans, as trapped as the Mediterranean was. [425] � Creating so much gypsum partially desalinated Earth�s oceans (a 6% lowering), raised their freezing point, and may have contributed to the growth of Antarctica�s ice sheets. [426] � Also, those drying episodes initiated great droughts in Africa and may well have spurred the evolutionary events that led to humans.

The Christian bishop who argued that the "City of God" was represented by the Catholic Church and that the Catholic Church was meant for all people in all times was: The principal long-term effect of the Christian Crusader attacks on Jerusalem was to improve the standard of living for the millions who lived in Egypt and Syria. I hoped for a forgotten hairpin, for some tiny piece of ribbon. But how can the judgment be made if the benefits and losses cannot be balanced because the losses are either unmentioned or mentioned quickly?

If, however, there were neither slaves nor kings, a more egalitarian system of governance may have been practiced. There is a connection between dominant media of communication and emerging institutions of power in the society. The historians also ignore, or trivilialize, the continuous history of resistance by peoples of color against this unjust foundation. Goddesses were shown wearing sleeved dresses with fitted bodices, V necks, and straight skirts., continued to wear fringed garments.

Civilization comes from Latin civis, "citizen." Scientists dated frozen ash from the Thera eruption and concluded that it occurred in 1645 BC, some 150 years before the final destruction of the Minoan palaces. The main source of Islamic civilization's improvement and rise is positive study habit and maturity of thought. For those among the Existentialists who failed to encounter God or who indulge in the atheistic denial, this "nothingness" is just the last truth about man and his destiny.

The rise of civilization here was assisted by the local ecology of well-watered alluvial soil, as well as by the transportation network that the Coatzacoalcos river basin provided. I was assigned to identify elements specific to Chinese youth culture, and in the process I developed some marketing clues. As time goes by, people learned to domesticate animals and everything develops into a more civilized way of life. In other  ancient societies, the monarch was all-powerful.

The Lord says: “With the mind thus engaged in the Yoga of constant practice, not deflected by any other obstacles, one attains the supreme Purusha of resplendent glory.” The Lord further says, “At the time of death, he who thinks of My real Being as the supreme Lord Sri Krishna or Narayana, leaves the body and verily reaches My Being.

Dramatic population growth is putting increasing pressure on their environments, and making life for many tougher than it was for their forebears. Human race was never meant to remain static, dynamism is inbuilt in human beings. The culture about which one speaks is always a particular culture. Some archeologist think that the Olmec also spoke a Proto-Maya language. The influence from ancient Greek and Hellenistic philosophers was expanded to medieval Muslim philosophers and scientists, to the European Renaissance and Enlightenment, to the modern natural sciences and technology.

It seems that everyone had the right to bargain fairly for his or her goods. Phoenicia was divided into four vassal kingdoms by the Persians: Sidon, Tyre, Arwad, and Byblos, and they prospered, furnishing fleets for the Persian kings. No doubt the culture of the ancient world was more easily transmissible than our own because it was infinitely simpler and because it had behind it the strong unitary traditions of the Roman Empire and the Christian Church.

We humans have been on the Earth for more than a million years, but civilization - life in cities - has come about only in the last 5,000. That is all patterning of our minds, a kind of grandiose wishful thinking that we can delineate and control what this defined set of things does. My very thoughts were like a ghostly rustle of dead leaves. Destruction of one bad thought will give you strength to annihilate other thoughts and will develop your soul-force or will-power.

The last thought of a licentious man will be the thought of his woman. In the late 1200, bands of nomadic people, the ancestors of the Aztecs, migrated into the Valley of Mexico from the north. ALL of the language of Exodus 1 indicates that the Egyptian oppression of the Israelites was based on blood, hence my position that it was a racially-motivated persecution; at no point in Israelites, and since the Torah was written by YHVH (and merely recorded by Moses) post the Mass Exodus, it was not religious strife which caused the oppression. (The distinctions between “they” and “we” placed in the voice of the Egyptians underscores the racial division, since the terms do not pertain to land, religion, socio-economic, or cultural reasons—simply that the Israelites are “more and mightier” than the Egyptians.
