inventive, and resourceful. The next symbol resembles a donkey, so, they were smart
enough to have animals help them till the soil. The following pictograph, the image of
what appears to be a shovel of some sort, which indicates that they had tools at their
disposal to make their work more efficient and purposeful. Even further proof of their

    Nother Nature Nature is the essence that gives identity, the form, the defined sense of existence on this world to the living and the inanimate.

To the Greek, the forest people, nature provides the source of continuing life, an
