Chapter 7 Mythology
The problem of food was solved, and the God-given city began to prosper again.
“A few thousand people are not our limit,” Ledley declared to his family, looking out at the city and imagining its potential.
“We have already overcome many challenges, and I believe we can go even further.
I want to build a city that can support tens of thousands, or even hundreds of thousands of people.
Imagine the possibilities!”
As Ledley stood on the high walls of the palace, he looked out over the bustling city, its streets teeming with activity.
The houses, though modest, were well-built and sturdy, reflecting the resourcefulness of their inhabitants.
But as he gazed out at the horizon, he found himself struggling to imagine what a city-state for even more people would look like.
The idea was both thrilling and daunting.
How would they feed, house, and care for such a vast population? What new challenges would arise, and how would they overcome them?
As his thoughts turned inward, Ledley eyes wandered across the city, taking in the many elements that had brought it to life.
The salt drying areas, the food workshops, and the vast warehouses that stored their bounty, all testament to the ingenuity and hard work of their people.
Further afield, the swampy lands that surrounded the city were being tamed, their harsh terrain turned into farmland.
Even now, a female three-leaf woman could be seen wading in the shallow waters, driving fish towards the waiting nets.
All around him, Ledley saw the signs of progress and growth.
And he knew that, with determination and hard work, they could create a city that would be the envy of generation.
“I once made a promise to God,” Ledley said, his voice ringing with conviction, “to create a great civilization that will never fade.
I pledged to build a city that would stand the test of time, a place where all men could gather to worship and live in peace.”
His eyes sparkled with determination as he continued.
“And I intend to keep that promise.
Let all men guard and worship god here for 10,000 years, 100,000 years, 1 million years.
Until then, eternal.”
With a sense of reverence, he turned his head to look at his queen, his partner in this grand vision.
“Do you think I can do it?” he asked, his tone both humble and resolute.
The queen regarded him with adoration, her eyes alight with pride and admiration.
“You are the king of wisdom, the firstborn son of God, the source of all knowledge,” she said.
“You have already accomplished so much.
I have no doubt that you can achieve anything you set your mind to.”
Ledley smile grew wider, and he took his hand back, looking out at the sea and the setting sun.
The orange and pink hues painted the sky with a brilliant palette, casting a warm light over the scene before him.
“Yes!” he exclaimed, his voice echoing with a sense of triumph.
“I can do it, and I will do it.
For this is my promise to God, the oath I made to the supreme Ricozo.”
As the sun began to dip below the horizon, casting the city in a warm, golden light, the bustling streets below came to life.
The sound of laughter and chatter filled the air as people went about their daily tasks.
The aroma of freshly cooked food and salted fish wafted through the air, mingling with the salty breeze from the sea.
Ledley watched as the eldest daughter and other female three-leaf women returned from their fishing expedition.
They held their catch high above their heads, displaying their hard-earned bounty to the crowd of guards who had gathered around them.
Cheers and applause erupted from the onlookers, and their eyes shone with admiration and pride.
At that moment, Ledley's eldest and second sons ran over, their faces beaming with excitement.
They had felt uneasy after the last crisis and were determined to help their father in his mission to build a great civilization.
They had decided to record the myth of God's great power to create life and the legend of the King of Wisdom, hoping to pass down the stories to future generations.
Ledley looked at his sons with pride and affection, grateful for their unwavering support.
He knew that building a city-state of tens of thousands, or even 100,000 people, would not be an easy task, but with the support of his family and the blessing of God, he was determined to make it a reality.
In an effort to showcase the glory of God and the power of Ledley, the King of Wisdom, a decision was made to create a monument that would stand the test of time.
Ledley and his sons set out to carve their story on dozen of boulder and erect it at the entrance of their city, hoping to inspire future generations with their tale.
To ensure that their message was crystal clear, Ledley's sons carefully carved intricate designs on both the front and back of the boulder.
On the front, they depicted God descending from the heavens and guiding the Mitsuba people to their blessed place.
On the back, they illustrated the story of the King of Wisdom leading his people to start civilization, using his vast knowledge to transform and shape the world around them.
Despite the stunning display of their achievements, Ledley couldn't shake the feeling that something was missing.
He realized that true civilization required more than just physical structures and material possessions.
It needed its own writing, art, philosophy, and a deeper understanding of the world around them.
So, Ledley turned to Rico, his God, for guidance.
As they walked along the stone wall of the temple, Rico paused to admire a fused shell embedded in the wall, watching as creatures swam around it.
Ledley reminded Rico that he had not yet taught him the Scriptures of God, and he was only able to speak, never having learned how to write.
With a deep sense of longing to create something lasting and meaningful, Ledley turned to Rico and begged him to reveal the secrets of writing.
Ledley knew that the power of the written word was essential in creating a civilization that would be remembered long after he and his people were gone.
He wanted to express himself in a way that would stand the test of time, but he didn't know where to start.
Rico, however, shook his head, indicating that he could not simply teach Ledley his own words directly.
Rico believed that his words belonged to him and his memories were his alone.
If Ledley wanted to create a civilization that truly belonged to the three leaf people, he needed to create his own text that was unique to them.
Rico believed that words were a powerful tool for human beings to express themselves and share knowledge, and that the Mitsuba people needed to create their own way of doing so.
Ledley was initially dazed and overwhelmed by this revelation.
He had never considered the idea of creating his own written language before, and he didn't know where to start.
However, Rico quickly offered a demonstration to help Ledley understand the fundamentals of creating a written language.
Rico picked up a flat shell and clicked it, causing lines of light to flow horizontally across its surface.
He drew a circle between his fingers and made it shine with light, telling Ledley that it was the sun.
Ledley drew a simple crescent underneath, which Rico confirmed was the moon.
Ledley began to understand that words were simply simplified patterns that represented objects, ideas, and concepts.
Excitement began to build in Ledley's heart as he drew a wave on the shell of the snail.
Rico confirmed that it represented water.
Ledley drew three waves and shouted ”Sea,” with excitement, realizing that he had just created his own text.
Under God's guidance, Ledley slowly began to understand the power of writing.
As he looked at the strange symbols written on the shell, Ledley's eyes were shining with wonder and amazement.
He realized that writing was more than just a mere picture, it was a powerful tool that could express the mysteries and secrets of the world, and pass them on for generations.
Ledley understood that the creation of writing was a crucial step for their civilization.
With the written word, their culture and history could be recorded and preserved for future generations to learn from.
He felt that the written word had a magical power, something that was able to transform their lives and make their race unique and special.
He came to realize that a life and race without writing were vastly different from those with it.
With writing, they could share their ideas, thoughts, and knowledge with others in a way that was impossible without it.
Ledley, inspired by Rico, had created a set of texts that belonged to the three-leaf people alone.
These texts contained only what was necessary for the people's survival and knowledge of their world.
They did not need to know the names of every beast, grass, or tree; they only needed to know the fundamental aspects of nature, such as the sun, moon, stars, wind, fire, thunder, and electricity.
The three-leaf people did not need to understand the world from a wide range of fields and perspectives, and so it was not so difficult to make words that belonged to them.
Ledley, who was skilled in carving, carved stone slabs in his palace that recorded all the writings he created.
Ledley gathered his sons and subjects and announced that they had finally possessed the written word.
However, the sons and subjects were confused, and they did not understand the meaning of the words well.
Ledley then showed the world the first use of writing, and the first thing they recorded was mythology.
The stone tablets erected in front of the City of God not only had patterns but were also carved with words.
The text on the tablets told the story of God, who created all souls, then created his eldest son, Ledley, the king of wisdom, and finally created his servant, Sally, the mother of life.
The people looked up at the patterns and symbols, and some clever three-leaf people guessed the meaning of the text based on the relief.
They learned about the miracles that God performed and for the first time truly felt the presence of the gods.
With the written word, the civilization of the three-leaf people began to develop further.
They began to get rid of barbarism and ignorance, and they could truly deserve the word “civilization.” The text that Ledley created was their legacy, a testament to the greatness of their civilization, which would stand the test of time.
