We all come from Africa. It sits in us, in our DNA, in more ways than we can immediately tell.

For example: Suppose you wanted to study arts, particularly of painting landscapes. You might then ask: what constitutes an aesthetically pleasing painting of a landscape?

If you went to the fine art school, they would teach you a list of generic canons for painting landscapes.

Things like: the terrain should be somewhat articulated, partially wooded, colourful, your viewpoint somewhat elevated (to give you an instinctive feeling of safety by being able to scrutinize your immediate neighbourhood), etc., etc.

Statistically speaking, landscapes coming from Africa are most likely to meet all (or most) of these criteria. Just look!
