If someone were to dress a plant in clothes you would question such action. You would say… we are not supposed to do that because it is unhealthy for the plant. Plants need to be exposed to direct Sunlight for optimal health. People who have indoor plants know that they have to keep them close to the window for Sunlight exposure so they can remain healthy. Why is it… we do this for the plants but never think that the same rules applies for us?
The element that plants use to convert Sunlight into food and energy is Chlorophyll. As stated in previous posts, the only difference between chlorophyll and Melanin is one having magnesium (the chlorophyll) while the other has iron (the Melanin) as its centralized atom, which of course doesn’t affect their primary functions. Now that we understand that Melanin and Chlorophyll is the same, what makes us believe that the function of one is different from the other? What would make you think it’s weird to dress a plant in clothes but yet think it is normal for people who are highly pigmented (Melanin) to wear clothes?
Africans had this knowledge, some, like the Kemetic (Egyptians) people knew this consciously, which explains why they their upper body is always left exposed to Sunlight. Others, just innately knew it, they only wore clothes to cover their private parts. Some like to assume that Africans “don’t wear” clothes because they do not possess the knowledge on how to do it. Of course this is not a valid claim because they did make the clothes that cover their private parts; which obviously proves they do know how to make clothes.
They understood that clothing blocks Sunlight and that it is unhealthy to cover up the skin from Sunlight exposure. Africans glorified our Sun for these reasons, they never worshipped it. In ancient Indigenous cultures, they never separated themselves from nature. They understood that just like the plants and any other natural beings, their body also convert Sunlight into food and energy. It was necessary for the skin to be exposed to the full intensity of direct Sunlight, from the youngest Indigenous child to the oldest Indigenous woman and man.
