In the article Columbus, Magellan and the "Hidden King," the millennial environment that existed in Spain during the time of Columbus and Magellan was discussed.
The kingdom of Valencia, where I have suggested that Sayabiga elements had settled during Moorish times, turns out to be an epicenter of influence that created an environment in Spain favorable both the expeditions of both Columbus and Magellan. Not only did Valencia host the Sayabiga, but it was also a center of post-Templar influence in Spain.
According to the theory presented here earlier, the "Gypsy" peoples known as the Zutt, who were possibly a Jat group from the Sindh in South Asia, and the Sayabiga from Zabag moved along with their rice farming and buffalo herding through the Middle East. Probably they were the ones that introduced both rice and the buffalo to Egypt, and from there on to southern Spain. The rice culture there involves a tidal wet system and the Japonica strain, and I have suggested this rice was farmed by the Sayabiga.
