about

An homage to Dieu d'eau, a book by Marcel Griaule about the Dogon tribe in Africa and their astronomical knowledge.
A requiem to the paleocontact hypothesis, which claimed that Dogons learnt this knowledge from ancient astronauts from another planet.
And, most of all, an illustration of a sentence from Dieu d'eau :
"Most of the conversations with Ogotemmêli had indeed turned largely on twins and on the need for duality and the doubling of individual lives. The Eight original Ancestors were really eight pairs… But after this generation, human beings were usually born single. Dogon religion and Dogon philosophy both expressed a haunting sense of the original loss of twin-ness. The heavenly Powers themselves were dual, and in their Earthly manifestations they constantly intervened in pairs…"
