Dogon - And Digitaria



Type of Spiritual Experience


An amazing description

A description of the experience

From A Sudanese Sirius System M. GRIAULE and G. DIETERLEN

The contents of the ‘star receptacle’ are ejected by centrifugal force, in the form of infinitesimals comparable to the seeds of digitaria exilis which undergo rapid development

‘The thing which goes emerges outside becomes as large as it every day’.

In other words, what issues from the star increases each day by a volume equal to itself.

Because of this role, the ‘star’, which is considered to be the smallest thing there is, is also the heaviest.

‘Digitaria is the smallest thing there is, it is the heaviest.’

It consist of a metal called sagala which is a little brighter than iron and so heavy that all earthly beings combined could not lift it.
