Filipinos’ deep and ancient culture is an exciting and intriguing exploration. The science behind indigenous practices of Filipinos and that of other groups reside in quantum. One cannot sufficiently explain or give justice to the validity of indigenous knowledge and practices if only material science is invoked. One cannot find deep alternative or quantum solutions to climate change and other seemingly hopeless challenges if ancient knowledge and practices is not invoked. Documentation and study necessitates looking at rituals, festivals, seemingly superstitious beliefs and practices; these bring the general condition of the area to one that is more akin to the intention of the community, farmers or individuals. They alter the subtle energy and formative forces of the place. One site one could go to for a journey to the past and the science application of the indigenous is I wrote earlier articles on the subject of indigenous seed practices, two of which may be found in  and in Dr. Boni Comandante has applied his scientific study to the sleeping fish, giant shell or taklobo, baybayin or ancient Filipino scripts , alternative student learning through dance and writing , terahertz and many more realms. And yes, to baybayin farming (will be featured later).
