Good morning, Susan. I cannot speak for Graham as to whether his intended meaning was in regard to higher, as opposed to lower, wisdom teachings of a given culture or that the "wisdom teachings of cultures in deep antiquity" were "higher" in relation to owr own. However, I am comfortable commenting on an example of superior wisdom within a given culture in relation to itself. Take, for example, the medicinal tea of the Amazon Basin, yage. This brew generally consists of two plants, chacruna (Psychotria viridis) and ayahuasca (Banisteriopsis caapi). Either of these taken alone at standard doses would result in less than remarkable responses. However, when combined they produce one of the most entheogenic concoctions known to science. Considering that there are some 40,000+ species of plant life in the Amazon rainforest, the odds that one would find the two plants necessary to produce the effect, and then combine and drink them, are slim to none -- 1 in 800,000,000, in fact. But, that's just what they did. I wouldn't hesitate to refer to this as an example of higher wisdom.

If you asked the tribesmen themselves how they acquired this information, they would not respond with 'trial and error.' Rather, they say rather matter of fact that the plants spoke the wisdom to them. And, that's just what these plants do. They speak.
