The mythology of the Dogon tribe of Mali describes how their one true
god Amma created all of the matter of the universe. But the system
defined by these tribal myths bears a striking resemblance to the actual
scientific structure of matter, starting with the atom and continuing
all the way down to the vibrating threads of string theory. Moreover,
many of the Dogon words, symbols and rituals used to describe this
structure are a close match for those found in the myths of ancient
Egypt and in the daily rituals of Judaism.
