2. What affect could being reliant on rain and carefully sowing seeds, rather than an overflowing river easily watering your produce, have on how you relate to food?
3. Egypt in Hebrew (Mitzrayim) comes from the root word for narrow (tzar). In Egypt farming was literally narrow, along the banks of the nile, what 'narrow mindedness' is the text suggesting comes form the place and way of farming in Egypt?
