"There are things which speak to us from every cell of our being. Just as fish swimming in the reef are born with the natural wisdom of their ancients, our forebears live on in us. Our thoughts and ideas are not all of our own making. One life end and another begins - yet many things are passed along at the first moment of existence. " (from the first chapter).
