The outer circle is the cosmology, in order that the human by no means forgets that they're within a universe – a universe that has a legislation. This legislations is located within the moment circle which, while equivalent to the traditional Greek legislations of physis is a legislation according to courting. it is a courting that orders the putting of the person within the innermost circle, and which buildings their rights and obligations into the land. The jurisprudential texts which tell the theoretical framework of this ebook carry to our realization the pressing message that the Djang (primordial power) is out of stability, and that the rebalancing of that Djang is as much as the person via their lawful behaviour, a behaviour which styles them again into land. hence, The Land is the resource of the Law concludes not just with a prognosis of the reason for weather swap, yet a prescription which bargains another criminal method of worldwide health.
