“Can you tell me which man is from southern Africa and which one is from the northern part of the continent?” Swami Nitty-Gritty (Adano Ley) asked me, nodding in the direction of 2 men sitting at a nearby restaurant table.
(We were driving from Houston to Dallas, where Swami Nitty-Gritty was scheduled to teach a Solar Nutrition workshop.)
“You can tell that? How?” was my response.
Swami Nitty-Gritty replied, “Minerals precipitate differently at different latitudes due to the rotation of the Earth. They create different racial geometries from the pressure variances. That’s why their skulls are not shaped alike. This is called the science of ecological anthropology.”
Swami Nitty-Grittythen nodded in the direction of our waitress, asking me to identify her heritage.
Of course, I couldn’t, so he named off 4 ancestries – Scottish, Welsh, Irish, and German.
The waitress brought our order – I was eating meat for the first time in 14 years!!!!! – and Swami Nitty-Gritty asked, “What is your heritage?”
She repeated the same 4 ancestries Swami Nitty-Gritty had listed.
Then Swami Nitty-Gritty advised me, “Whenever someone inquires, ‘What kind of work do you do?,’ you reply, ‘I’m an ecological anthropologist and tourist.”
Hence, current phenomena like the Ever New Highways School of Time Conscious Living.
More than a decade later, I read …
“Anthropometric characteristics, including skin color, demonstrate the selective effects of the different climates to which modern humans have been exposed in the course of their migrations over the Earth’s surface. They vary especially with latitude. By contrast, genes are considerably more useful as markers of evolutionary history, especially migrations. They vary more with longitude. […] Shape is measured mostly using the relationship between the face and the crown. But shape is also very sensitive to climate selection. In very cold regions, modern humans show a strong reduction of the face in relation to the crown, which results in a major change in the form of the head,” according to Luigi Luca Cavalli-Sforza, Genes, Peoples, and Languages, 2000.
This climate (temperature, 3rd Chakra) explanation overlaps Swami Nitty-Gritty’s rotational pressure (4th Chakra) explanation.
Our bodies are maintained by the polarity between centripedalself-adhesion versus the force of centrifugal acceleration.
The velocity of the rotation of the Earth is 1038 miles per hour at the equator.
If you’re sitting in your armchair in Los Angeles, you’re heading east at 864 miles per hour;
New York City, 788 miles per hour;
Seattle, 707 miles per hour;
Paris, 694 miles per hour;
Anchorage, 503 miles per hour;
Fasten your seat belt. :)
