They strike me as instructions on how to dry your harvest, not cure it.
Reminds me of telling a budtender at a dispensary after he recommended a strain that it wasn't cured well if it was the same batch I had bought the week before. And if the same batch, I wasn’t interested. He proceeded to take a bud from the jar and tell me, as he snapped the stem, that that’s how you know it’s been cured. I didn’t bother trying to explain the difference.
And I am scratching my head over #4. Constant dim light? But then it closes by saying or total darkness. I’d go with darkness.
§467. I am sitting with a philosopher in the garden; he says again and again “I know that that’s a tree”, pointing to a tree that is near us. Someone else arrives and hears this, and I tell him: “This fellow isn’t insane. We are only doing philosophy.”
― Ludwig Wittgenstein, On Certainty
