Chapter One: Institution
Through his advice and authority Jim shaped the burgeoning cultures of human civilization.
He established centers of learning among the tribes, even while they were pre-literate, he built up systems and oral traditions by which they captured and recounted their histories, which became narratives that would take decades to master.
Through these schools he guided their understanding of agriculture, teaching them the secrets of building, fostering in them a patience that allowed them to track the movement of the stars.
He trained them to manage calamities in this way, to preserve their fragile way of life. He conditioned them with mnemonics, to remember who they were, what their ancestors had done, and he worked into those memes the control mechanisms that would allow him to have sway over the people for all future generations, through secret codes built into the language structure.
He took these psychological sciences, the neuro-linguistic programming to levels they had never been before. These were the tried and true conditioning techniques of the Imperial cult, but in the context of Earth’s cynergenic field their potential was greatly magnified.
The centers of learning he developed became the centers of civilization, the locus of worship, they became the distribution centers of food and those who cared for them became the custodians of clean water, purveyors of the medical arts, and teachers.
It took thousands of years, a time frame that was nothing to Jim, but was exceedingly long for the people of Earth, In that time these centers cathedrals and monasteries, and then universities and colleges.
