 But can you point to any of that stuff that has inspired
 permaculture *practices*?  Or better yet, is an inherent part
 of, or requirement for, those practices

 Lots of things inspire lots of different people to do lots of
 different things .. but that's a bit too abstract to then say that
 those inspirations are necessary in order to me to do those
 same things, say.  Or even to say that those inspirations are at
 all related to those things.

 Causality is so often misunderstood.

 Sounds like they had some pretty good horticultural skills
