Since the time of Darwin questions of human evolution have fascinated scientists. When did humans learn to speak, and ask question; think in abstract terms, and perform feats of engineering. When did humans learn to archive and build their collective knowledge.
It is clear that a gap exists in our understanding of human progress around the planet. How did ancient humans make such a phenomenal leap forward in agronomy? How did that advance reach the far corners of the world with such rapidity? Where science can only identify the gap, ancient texts and ancestral memories propose an answer.
Native American mythologies speak of an external intervention in human progress. The Mohicans speak of a non-human entity that coached their ancestors in a time when their survival on the planet was fragile. The Cherokee people tell of beings from the Pleiades arriving in egg-shaped craft, and living among them to teach them agronomy and fundamentals of civilization.
External intervention is the story of Zulu beginnings, Mayan mythology, Babylonian and Sumerian narratives. All speak of non-human beings appearing and teaching our distant ancestors new technologies for farming and all the rudiments of civilization.
