It was there that the new life arose which was to grow into new phase of human evolution. In a primitive age when humanity was deprived of technical opportunities, it is really significant to invent mechanical tools and at least to invent a watch. They depict seated sphinxes and figures, standing stiffly, linked only by their gestures ( British Museum, London). Chin a�s was the second pristine civilization to rise, and although the Tibetan Plateau and Himalayas separated China from the Fertile Crescent and India, there was cultural and technological diffusion.� At times, China was ahead of Fertile Crescent civilizations in technological and cultural innovation.� By eight kya, agriculture was firmly established in China.� China has had less investigation of its prehistory, but it seems clear that China�s deforestation began with agriculture, just like everyplace else, and by 1000 BCE, China was largely deforested. [708] � The East Asian food complex is markedly different from the Fertile Crescent's, largely because East Asia relied on summer monsoons for its water, and winter rains provided water for the Fertile Crescent and westward, although all civilizations were primarily based on seed and root crops. [709] � The rice paddy is the most sophisticated preindustrial agricultural system ever created.� It began adding to Earth�s methane concentration by 3000 BCE, and rice paddies bred malaria to the extent that the paddy system in southern China was not successful until the local populace had partially adapted to malaria. [710] �Deforested lands alternately flood and desertify, and managing water in China became the foundation of imperial practice like nowhere else in history.� Although pharaohs claimed divine control over the Nile�s flood, in practice they did nothing at all.� Chinese emperors and the states they controlled, however, owed their legitimacy in their subjects� eyes to how well they controlled flooding and drainage. [711] � The Ye llow and Yangtze rivers carried more than 30 times the silt that the Nile did, and deforestation with the resulting flooding, siltation, and desertification have been major Chinese problems for thousands of years.� Although it has been challenged, the idea that China reached early political unity due to few geographic barriers has merit. [712] � China has been politically unified almost continually for more than two millennia.� The Han Chinese that dominate China are like white Americans, Canadians, or Australians, in that they invaded, conquered, and came to dominate lands initially settled by others. [713] In northern China, beginning with millet, dry farming was practiced, and in southern China the rice paddy system dominated.� China and East Asia never had the level of animal domestication that Fertile Crescent and European civilizations had.� For millennia, human excrement was used to fertilize East Asian crops and even feed pigs, until industrialization. [714] �The lack of domestic animals in China meant that any kind of wild animal, including arthropods, became food.
