Help in the form of nutrition for restructured creation was needed. Up until the time of the sixth day, when the restructuring was done through the chakras, the animal-men were not advanced enough for any nutrition to help with intelligence, but by the time Atlantis was destroyed, the spacemen needed to know if superior nutrition would help create a more thinking, reasoning human; thus experiments with nutrition had been started.
On the sixth day of creation the space ships came from outside our solar system. This was when many, including the first “Lord” or Captain, came from the constellation Norma. Some also came from Clarion and some from Edentia which is where the man Eden came from, the planet Edentia, to start the experimental garden. These were more advanced solar systems than where the help had previously come from, which had been from the planets in our own solar system.
As man evolved out of the ape stage and started walking upright, the ships would bring certain foods and chemicals to use on selected specimens, leaving them in their natural environment, but giving them this special help. The plant life native to earth was cross-bred with specimens brought from other planets. This is where most edible fruits and vegetables came from. Very few were native to the earth. The root vegetables were native, but most of the vines growing on earth were barren until they were cross-bred. There were some native fruit trees that developed, but some of them caused death when eaten. Many of them were inedible because the fruits on them were small and hard. They had no nourishment until crossed with stock from other planets.
The spacemen set up a controlled environment growing station so these supplements did not have to be transported from other stars (the Biblical Garden of Eden.) This growing station was an experiment to give more nourishment for the evolving animals. The volunteer in charge of these experiments was truly a genius in this field. His name was Eden. His stay on earth was of three hundred years, until he felt he had stabilized the crops and done the most that he could to further the nourishment of the race. He did eventually return to his home star in the Pleiades.
It was determined that the progress of the evolving animals was much more rapid when eating special foods. The Mineral Kingdom also had help from the space brothers, but not as much. It was pretty much as it is now, although the spacemen’s help came in handy to purify the water used to water the plants and vegetables to increase the amounts of minerals absorbed through the stems. Some minerals not found native to earth at that time were brought in from outer space. Once introduced into the ecological system they stayed in the system and as man evolved, he grew dependent on these minerals. Potassium is one that was introduced from Venus.
As given, the garden was an experimental growing station for producing more highly nutritious fruits and vegetables than the earth was able to produce at that time period. By this time the conscience in man had started developing. The garden was begun at the same time as the restructuring because it was realized that this nutrition was going to be responsible for a large part of the refinement of the forms on this planet earth. The garden was a huge mass of land that managed over a period of about three hundred years to really increase the brain capacity of these humans.
The garden was located in the country known as Israel. It was a large plat of ground near the Sinai Desert that was irrigated with a tremendous irrigation system, bringing water from the distant Nile River. There is still evidence of this system to be found if excavation were made at strategic points. On the eastern bank of the Nile River in Egypt, near the town of Bethane, there is a masonry standard that bore the weight of the pipes carrying the water as it was siphoned out of the river. The pipes were of a near leather-like material made from the skins of sheep. The “pipe-line” followed the river until the point where it meets the Jordan, then crossed at this point into present day Israel. (The Biblical Land of Canon, the Promised Land, was the Garden of Eden. They were one and the same thing.)
The irrigation system used was quite elaborate for its day. It had these “pipes” of sheep skin crisscrossing the growing station with punctures in them and the ability to close the water off at the top of the hill. There are several of these “pipe-bags” preserved in a cave in the hillside near the town of Judea. If evidence is wanted or needed, a dig could be done there.
Eden stabilized the crops and did the most he could do. After three hundred years of trying and experimenting, he had pretty much come up with the right combination in his seeds; the right hybrids of seeds, etc. The growing of crops as done in the garden was planned to perfection to get the most out of the soil that they were grown in, but this did not carry out into the outer fringes of civilization.
These seeds were given out and the tribes planted them, but they didn’t do it scientifically. They planted the same crops over and over again in the same fields and drew all the nutrients from the ground in that one area. Then they would move on to another area and after practically devastating that piece of territory, they’d move on to another. This just kept going on.
The earth men who ate from the garden did indeed receive knowledge but, of course, not from the Biblical single bite of an apple. It was a process covering many generations. Later generations were told of the progress made by those who ate the fruit and produce of all kinds, to induce more people to plant these crops and eat the harvest, so more growth and intelligence could take place. Some of the items brought from other stars could not be grown on earth. Some could be grown but had disastrous effects on humans.
It was found that with the addition of seaweed, the process of thinking was speeded up even more (The Biblical tale of Jonah and the Whale). It was thought that the best way to use the food from the sea was by eating the seaweed itself. The astronauts tried to tell the people that by eating the fish they would get the same results; that the fleshy part of the belly of the fish was a reservoir of selenium which is the chemical that is found in seaweed. The gastro-intestinal mechanism of the fish processed the seaweed automatically and stored the by-product, selenium. If the people would eat the belly of the fish they would gain the good nutrition just as easily and in a more tasty fashion than eating raw seaweed. Can you imagine trying to get unevolved man to understand this concept?
Up until that time the food on earth did not have a lot of the vitamins and minerals that were needed to increase the thinking capacity of the animal brain. As given, this was the purpose of the garden. Many, many experiments were brought in as far as food goes which, by the way, will be what will happen when we go into the fourth dimension. There will be much experimentation with food products, food growing and with food interchanging of components, etc. in a new experimental garden, “Nature’s Mineral Garden.”
