a word from our elders

ISanusi Credo Vusamazulu Mutwa sithi:
“In studying a plant, one must at the same time study the soil in which it grows, the water it absorbs, the air it breathes, and the light it assimilates.
Nothing in the world is an entirely independent entity, and least of all is a particular race of Man such an entity.

To understand a particular race one must know Man as a whole. And Mankind in turn must be seen as a product of his environment.
No zoologist can claim that he understands a particular animal unless he understands it ecologically.
Man’s environment is the world as a whole, and the latter’s environment is the solar system.
‘Man is part of the stars and the stars, sun, and the moon are all part of Man.’
Thus believe the Fire-Worshippers of the Southern Bu-Kongo. Astronomy was not brought to Man in Africa by Western Civilization. We have our own theories on the origin of our solar system.” – Page 546, INDABA, MY CHILDREN
