Fu Xi

Fu Xi invented all aspects of civilization, giving them to people as gifts. He is humanity’s first teacher. His inventions include astrology, agriculture, medicine, music, and writing. Fu Xi taught survival skills and bestowed the gift of fire. Fu Xi taught people to be self-sufficient. His name literally means “hidden victims” because he taught the arts of netting fishes and snaring animals.

Who knows what further gifts he has? He remains humanity’s benefactor, provider, and protector, although he has largely withdrawn and may have to be sought out.
