Excellent article, Gilbert. Good point about secret assassinations. The more we learn about plants and animals, the more we realize that nature/God has the real plan, and if we can try to follow it and understand it, we'll have it more going on.

Your link led me down a rabbit hole of other interesting articles. Some of them are even permaculture relevant (Mayan down fall, parasitic wasps, few others)
