Neolithic: Neo or new + lithos or stone in Greek refers to the Late Stone Age period. The Neolithic period followed the Mesolithic or Middle and Paleolithic or Old/Early periods. It dates approximately between 9000-3000 BC during the development of stone tools, settled villages, agriculture, domesticating animals, mounds and earth architecture based on spiritual practices.
It was during this period that works in clay began ushering in crafts.
This prolific period has left a profound mark. Its petroglyphs, petro or rock + glyph or carving in Greek, mark celestial and mystical events, which include the oldest known eclipse dating Nov 30, 3350 BC in Co. Meath, Ireland. The same and similar symbols are found around the world from petroglyphs of this period leaving us footnotes from a time when man lived in rhythm with nature and the environment.
Magnifies the basis of our sustaining ecosystem.
The ocean’s mighty microscopic marine organisms help photosynthesize over 50% of earth’s oxygen alone, providing every other breath we breathe. Think about that. Diatoms alone produce over 25% of our planet’s oxygen from salt and fresh water to moisture in the soil.
