The History of the Environment
The prosperity of civilization in different cultures and parts of the World indicates an evident connection between an in-depth knowledge of biology and the specific culture's potential for development. Without a doubt, a healthy relationship is seen with this rule, even in other sciences. Still, it is particularly evident in biology, as this is so close to human health and well-being.
A Beautiful Memory that Attracts Modern Science and Art
With glowing passion and warmth feeling, it is still spoken among the residents of Entoto about when the water level a reasonable time after the rainy season still stood one metre higher in Entoto's canyon streams and its enchanting nature rock baths. It is thus quite close to the time when Entoto's mountain massif and its canyons could carry significantly higher water quantity and therefore supply the population in the Capital with fresh water to a much greater extent.
Ethiopia and the River Nile
First, in 1968, science could muster the
adventure of the more significant source
to the Nile and its mighty water flow by
following an arduous journey through
Ethiopia's deep gorges and canyons.
The Prehistoric Legacy of Water and Plants.Ethiopia's considerable rainwater resources were probably not so contradictory in ancient times. The reason for the historical water capacity of Ethiopia was mainly the water-absorbing properties within the Highland's abundant natural soil and vegetation. The same native vegetation was Nature's intricate ancient harbouring high-tech of this water, not only by preventing it from draining but also functioning as numerous very efficient receivers of deluges and their torrents.
Ethiopia's Plants and their Ground
The Sciences of Hydrology Evolution's NaturePrehistorically in Ethiopia, this receiving water system of plants and soils fulfilled in the past antiquity still their natural properties to withhold a large proportion of its water and nourishment within its landscape's mountain massif and deeper soils. This vital water preserving and harbouring properties of the ancient Ethiopian Highland prepared then Nature for the spare time in a still unknown dry season in the coming years. Furthermore, Nature's organic protective and shielding mechanism executed at this remote time their natural character to protect and save this precious water. This Nature's secret high-tech from the aeons of antiquity then carefully purified the deluges and stored the seasonal rainfall typical for the ancient natural scene and native organisms. This organic evolutionary optimized creation of endemic trees and plants was then the biological tissue shielding the background and protecting against erosion.
Ethiopia's Historical Water LandscapeThus, Ethiopia's indigenous plants' evolution provided its vegetation from ancient aeons with Ethiopia's plants' immense robust, vastly reinforcing and deep root system. Therefore, this native Ethiopian vegetation directed the seasonal deluges down into the mountain massif's aquifers and served as gigantic underground buffering reservoirs. The physical properties of Ethiopia's Highland landscape and the following effects of its organisms' ground symbiosis historically provided its Nature with natural and highly effective water reservoirs whose functions were massively physical receivers of the floods. Thus, Ethiopia's Nature and landscape historically were supplied with water engulfing properties, thus preventing the country's water masses from rushing down the country's slopes towards Egypt. Thereby existed a very dominant and historic significant era when Ethiopia's landscape was able to withhold a large proportion of the water within the borders of Ethiopia.
The Eucalyptus Tree's Groundwater Destruction
|The Eucalyptus Problem|
A chemical component with an intricate competition-oriented toxic defence system in the leaves and roots of Eucalyptus trees prevents the growth of other trees and herbs. This chemical component leads to a mono-culture with Eucalyptus as the only tree species and eventually no ground cover. This chemical component causes severe erosion, easily observed in the water running through Addis connected with the rainy seasons.
The Environmental Dangers of the Eucalyptus Tree.Due to these shortcomings in the water preserving capacity of the Eucalyptus plantation, it cannot counterbalance the uneven distribution of rain. The result is often torrential flooding in the down-slope areas, in this case, the northern district of Addis Ababa. In August 1994, it created a fatal danger because of overwhelming and sudden flooding.
Ethiopia's and the World's Heritage:
A Delicate and Precious Legacy of Symbiosis.
This ancient Nature's secretive high-tech heritage is nothing less than Nature's own concealed, gentle and symbiotic way to make very advanced synergies with the most vital properties between the indigenous vegetation, organisms and soil mechanics. With its tremendous guardian effect on the landscape's soil layers, this ancient and protective symbiosis between the native plants, microorganisms and soils created powerful water receiving mechanisms for the ground's hydrology. Therefore, a prehistoric synergy and highly intricate creation of biology and earth appear with shielding ground properties and thus the ability to naturally absorb and store the deluges for the future within the gigantic aquifers of often ancient water (paleowater). Due to this, the science of prehistory, in antiquity, the foundation of Nature's creation, established the World's crust to gather and protect the soil's most vital water purifying properties. Thereby, in early prehistory, this delicate and multitude symbiotic process for life thus initiated the foundation to build a reliable and loyal base for the inhabitants of the Earth's Nature.
The Natural Optimized Storage of Purified Water.
These advanced but concealed water preserving mechanisms in the remote past were to store this water for the yearly occurring dry seasons and, even more, keep the purified water for countless years within the natural underground aquifers. This prehistoric creation of retaining and purifying water consisted of Nature's own and indigenous optimized selection of native plants and soils. These native plants and their unique soils then directed the rainwater by physical blocking properties and guided it into the ground. Due to these intricate synergies of roots' and soils' symbiotic enhancements, the past landscape absorbed the seasonal deluges, reminiscent of a myriad of microscopic and underground seeking natural water delivering tube systems. The indigenous plants and trees have provided Nature with an immense robust, soil reinforcing, well-anchored root system. Therefore, this native Ethiopian vegetation directed the seasonal deluges into the mountain's natural underground reservoirs. Thus were the torrential floods in antiquity directed towards Ethiopia's thick soil layers and the deeper groundwater reservoirs.

vegetation and its trees can be considered and

The Torrential Rains and Erosion
Historically, these large quantities of torrential precipitations were accumulated for a long time within the borders of Ethiopia, with the result that the total water flows in the country were greatly extended over time and, at the same time, subdued in its sudden and erosive overflows. These floodwaters were thus regularly swallowed by Ethiopia's geology, landscape and vegetation during each rainy period. The abundance of rainwater began to flow further into the Nile only after these were fully saturated.
The World's Water & Culture Cradle.The meteorological phenomenon, known as orographic precipitation (OP), is shown above the image . This mountainous and high altitude weather condition is a well-known and evident scientific phenomenon that describes how the incoming clouds transform their moisture into rain (OP) as they rise over a high mountain and its chilly massif. However, this mountain massif need not be close to potential civilization to deliver high volumes of water. Still, the source of the precipitation and the beneficial countries may be very distant from one another, such as the Ethiopian Highlands and the Egyptian civilization. The Ethiopian Highlands is a historical example here, which, despite its remoteness, is nevertheless the most significant carrier of the water that arrives in Egypt's civilization through the Nile River.
Psychopathy Against the PopulationDue to this background of shortcomings in knowledge within international cultures, reoccurring through history follows a deterioration of the environment. This destruction of the environment occurs since an ignorant political elite demands supremacy in overwhelming megalomania with the delusion of grandeur. Thus, the leaders of these dictatorships created their business in reluctance for the temporary costs regarding the concerns for humans and the country and, maybe most devastating, reproduced their psychopathic genes of terror from the womb of terrorized females. They prevailed in lurking threat through corrosive deception of old heritage within the most deep-rooted part of the population's fear. This human factor of fear is nothing else than the specific part of the human genome from antiquity, working within the prehistoric emotional trigger DNA mechanisms. This DNA from antiquity provided humankind with the most vital part of the human surviving oriented genome intended as a crucial defence mechanism against dangerous predators or fatal cataclysms. Concluded thereby, the historical autocracies' despotism succeeded by the most sinister threat of despotic manipulating the inhabitants into harmful actions for both citizens themselves and their own country and future civilization.
The loss of the Country's Souls and WaterIn this dangerously despotic political environment, it was important for the working part of the population to carefully avoid any public signs of individual economic success or personal interest in the development of the society. As a result, the historical autocracies' despotism succeeded in their aim for personal profit and this by reluctance for temporary costs regarding humans and the country, thereby manipulating the inhabitants into deceivingly concealed and dangerously debilitating fatal deadlocks. Due to considering the threat from the psychopathy of the despotic power elite, this susceptible situation was then causing an imminent danger for any person aspiring the will to progress for their country's population's wellbeing and thereby become the vulnerable target for the power's jealousy in almighty megalomania.
Megalomania & Despotism
Of course, the ruling power's silent terror of duping despotism becomes the triggering factor to a new social fashion and firmly activates this as even a malignant cultural ideal. Soon enough, these historical autocracies appear with a severely malign culturally locked pattern of imaginary sovereignty. For the psychopaths, a firmly laid ground appeared during their lifetime, assuring the profits derived from an outstandingly insidious search for the ardour to live and rule after a prestigious ideal. All too often followed these autocrats' despotic megalomania by profoundly revolting bestiality against the population, with the robust creation of a fatal cultural paradigm in menacing delusion. Thus, these autocracies succeeded by terror developing overwhelming repugnant ideas and generating the psychopaths' genetically influential factors to rule, divide and reproduce their despotic, dictatorial genes.
Terror & Guardian DNA of the Past.Of course, this ubiquitous and insidiously fatal terror is accompanied by severe obstacles to the population's essential will for society's positive development and substantial barriers to the people's willingness to deal with the necessary knowledge of the country's natural resources. However, this silent terror is inevitably accompanied by direct fear among the inhabitants, a terror strong enough to activate fearful aversions within the consciousness of the population's most critical phobias of a deeply genetically rooted source. Autonomously, this genetic legacy from prehistory tormented silent people's minds with the purpose to protect their life, even if its path was directed to humiliation in severe starvation. Naturally and tragically, this elemental guardian DNA from the past also inhibited the inhabitants' ability to reveal or stimulate their motivation to, for example, primarily collect and safely store these massive amounts of rain and their immense seasonal deluges.

The Dangerous Heritage of Terror
Ethiopia's Tremendous Mighty River Nile.After the surprisingly long opposite turned detour of the Blue Nile's long journey towards the south and Ethiopia's Capital, Addis Ababa, the Blue Nile, at last, turns northwards and unites with the White Nile in Sudan and then continues to Egypt. Although the river Nile is very mighty when it, at last, arrives in Egypt, it can, of course, be seen as very odd how this classic river along its path from the Ethiopian Highland also is subdued by considerable losses of water. Due to leaks along its extremely long river path, the River Nile is defeated with many forfeitures of water in soil permeability and evaporation. Furthermore, these countries receiving the water below the Ethiopian Highland are well known as warmer lowland areas; nevertheless, this water from Ethiopia finally arrives in Egypt in historical quantities.

Aquifers, Technology and Evolution
Knowing these natural aquifers and their synergies with water technologies is antiquity's highly valued historical legacy. In their context, they are a well-known concept that helps to understand that a mighty mountain massif that receives abundant and regular precipitation with chilly temperatures also provides the conditions for harbouring this water. Hence, the plants genetically evolved into formidable distributors of the superficial rainwater and allowed this water to penetrate the soil's otherwise porous resistant structure, thereby creating groundwater. The Forgotten Sciences from Antiquity
These historically and very early developed technical and geological-based methods for managing and saving enormous amounts of water that are often technically complex and aesthetically grandiose. The methods of this water technology vary significantly between different cultures and continents. Still, in the legacy of history, they are the basis of ancient civilizations' most important and original technological achievements.
Civilizations and Mountainous Rainfall.The precipitation that falls on high-lying mountain masses is usually of utmost importance for the opportunities to develop a stable and prosperous civilization for the societies below. This cultural dependency is a distinct and regular phenomenon recurring throughout history and today's cultures. The erosive forces (E F) can be devastating and contradictory, and this is because rainfall should usually be welcome. Nevertheless, significant problems are generally a lack of higher civilization, political turmoil, or a despotic and ignorant society under harsh control by a highly corrupted political elite.
Nile River and Ethiopia's Historical DelugesThe Blue Nile from Ethiopia is here, with 70 - 80% of the Nile's water during the rainy seasons, without comparison to the dominant source of the Nile, which should be essential to point out as a crucial historical reality. Thus, Ethiopia is the natural source of the Nile, despite usually describing how the countries south of Ethiopia are the source of the Nile. However, this is only correct in the adventure literature and the early explorers' romantic description of heroic adventures' discoveries in the ascent of the breathtakingly beautiful cloud-covered Ruwenzori mountains and glaciers in the mountain range through the countries of Uganda and Congo.
Ethiopia's dominance in water distribution to Sudan and Egypt is thanks to the Blue Nile's origin and long journey through this phenomenon of orographic precipitation (OP), creating the rainfalls of Ethiopia. Behind this case of natural science lies the tremendous water mass over Ethiopia's highlands. Ethiopia's high plateau with the large lake Tana dominates and distributes this historical water mass to the Nile's long journey towards Egypt, well proved in science and general climate studies. Thus, this mountainous high plateau of Ethiopia and the high altitude enrich this historical country's seasonal torrential deluges of rains over this legendary landscape.
Located on a mountain ridge of Entoto Natural Park, its crest forms a big water divider. The northern slope of Entoto's mountain massif drains into the Blue Nile, and the precipitation from the southern slope will end up in the Awash River. This topographical configuration of Entoto Natural Park's mountain crest has the curious result that two raindrops that simultaneously moist the soil of Entoto's mountain crest, only a centimetre apart, will have quite different destinies. After a long journey through the River Nile, one waterway will reach the Mediterranean Sea. In contrast, the other watershed will pass through the city of Addis Ababa, eventually evaporating in the Danakil Desert*, as the Awash River never reaches the sea.
A Time of Fragrance, Harmony and Beauty.
At the end of the rain season in September - October, the high plateau becomes a deep attraction where streams and waterfall stabilize. A gentle, romantic flow of ideal conditions becomes evident in October- November.
