Shennong (神农) literally means “Divine Farmer” or “God of Agriculture” in Chinese. According to the tradition, he taught people how to cultivate plants. He is believed to be the founder of medical science and trading. Besides having taught humans the use of the plow together with other aspects of basic agriculture, the use of medicinal plants, and having been a god of the burning wind (in which the ash produced by fire fertilizes the fields), was sometimes said to be a progenitor to Chi You (a tribal leader of the ancient Nine Li tribe (九黎) during ancient China) They were both ox-headed, sharp-horned, bronze-foreheaded, and iron-skulled. One difference between mythology and science is exemplified in Chinese mythology: Shennong and Chi You were supposedly friends and fellow scholars, despite the 500 years or seventeen or eighteen generations between the first Shennong and Yellow Emperor (Chi You); and, that together they shared the alchemical secrets of medicine, immortality, and making gold.
