    My guess: it means that we learn by doing.

    Either that, or it means that we’ve been sleeping with our cousins for too many generations now.

    It’s an ancient sign of protection against the harmful magic that can be transmitted through a gaze, even inadvertently. Al hamsa is not the evil eye, but is a protection against it. But, how is it that this same ancient symbol exists… [teaser]… across the Atlantic Ocean?
