How ancient lentils reveal the origins of social inequality

"It’s emblematic of the Ubaid that this large cache of lentils resides within a private house and not in a public building. It represents a valuable crop which was the property of an industrious farming family and did not belong to the wider community, as it would have in the previous more egalitarian periods. "

#introductions
Hello all! I'm a genderqueer (they/them/theirs) software engineer located in the New York, USA area. I like #sciencefiction, #storygames, #rockclimbing, #knitting, #cooking, #tea, #history, #cats, and #dogs. My political ideals are best described by Social Anarchism. I'm an agnostic vegetarian but I have no interest in convincing you to be either of those things. I like reading about #youthrights, delicious #vegan recipes, #harmreduction, #policeabolition, and utopian societies!

So hang on, 13th-century Kabbalists could meditate so hard that they turned into light-emitting fairies by juggling 28 letters and numbers in their overheated, gently pulsating brains. But they were not smart enough to have any historical awareness regarding the development the Hebrew alphabet? Or of written language in general? They simply put it all down to 'In the beginning was the verb,' end of story? I'm not sure, dear Professor.

(but alas every search ui in the world sucks)
