A: “Anazi and the wisdom pot.”
Anazi was given a pot with all the wisdom in the world by the gods. The only condition that Anazi got was that he should share the wisdom with all the people. But, Anazi didn’t want to share the wisdom, he only kept the pot for himself. This displeased the gods, and they made his son sick. But even with all the wisdom in the world Anazi couldn’t find the cure for his son. Angry as he was he decided to climb the tree of life to find a cure. Whilst he was climbing he heard from down below that his son got so sick that he died. This angered Anazi so much that he destroyed the wisdom pot, with the wisdom spilling everywhere. And so it the reason told that no one till this day has all the wisdom in the world.
