Kutheni ixesha likwahlukana nje?

Ukuze umntu agcine irekhodi leziganeko; ukuze aqikelele umgama weziganeko ngokwembonakalo yexesha elidlulileyo, kwaye alindele ezo izayo. Njengoko kuchaziwe zezithandi-zobulumko, ixesha "lilandelelana leziganeko kwindalo iphela." Ukuba umntu abenokulandelela ubomi bakhe kunye neshishini, kunye nabanye abantu ', wayenyanzelekile ukuba enze iindlela zokulungisa imicimbi ngexesha. Kwakuyindalo ukulinganisa iziganeko emhlabeni "ngokulandelelana kweziganeko kwindalo iphela." Amanqanaba okanye ukwahlula kwexesha wayenikiwe yindalo. Umntu wayefanele ukuba abe ngumbukeli olungileyo kunye nokugcina ingxelo yoko ebekubonile. Amandla akhe okujonga ayelangazelela ngokwaneleyo ukubona ubomi bakhe babuphawulwa ngokulandelelana kwamaxesha okukhanya nobumnyama, bemini nobusuku. Ixesha lokukhanya lalibangelwa bubukho, ubumnyama ukungabikho, kwelanga. Wabona ixesha lokufudumala nokubanda ngenxa yokuma kwelanga elangeni. Waye wafunda amaqela eenkwenkwezi kwaye wabona iinguqulelo zawo, nokuba namaxesha atshintshile njengoko amaqela eenguqu etshintsha. Indlela yelanga yabonakala idlula kumaqela eenkwenkwezi, emaqeleni, athi abantu bakudala babalwe babe lishumi elinababini babize i-zodiac, okanye isangqa sobomi. Le yayiyikhalenda yabo. Imilaza okanye imiqondiso yabizwa ngamagama ahlukileyo phakathi kwabantu abohlukeneyo. Ngaphandle kwamanani ambalwa inani labalwa njengeleshumi elinambini. Xa ilanga lidlulile kulo naluphi na uphawu olunye kuzo zonke ezilishumi elinesibini kwaye luqala kumqondiso omnye, loo mjikelezo okanye umjikelo wabizwa unyaka. Njengoko uphawu olunye lwaludlula kwaye olunye lusiza, abantu babazi ngokusuka kumava ukuba ixesha lonyaka liza kutshintsha. Ixesha ukusuka kolunye uphawu ukuya kolunye uphawu lwalubizwa ngokuba yinyanga yelanga. AmaGrikhi namaRoma aba nengxaki ekwahluleni inani leentsuku ngenyanga, kunye nenani leenyanga enyakeni. Kodwa ekugqibeleni bayamkela iodolo njengoko isetyenziswa ngamaYiputa. Sisebenzisa okufanayo nanamhlanje. Olunye ukwahlulahlula lwenziwa ngezigaba zenyanga. Kuthathe iintsuku ze-29 nesiqingatha sokuba inyanga idlule kwizigaba zayo ezine ukusuka kwinyanga entsha ukuya kwenyanga entsha. Ezi zigaba zine zenza inyanga enye yenyanga, kwiiveki ezine kunye nenxalenye. Ukwahlula-hlula kwemini ukusuka ekuphumeni kwelanga kuye kweyona ndawo iphakamileyo emazulwini nokutshona kwelanga kwaphawulwa ngokwesicwangciso esiphakanyisiweyo emazulwini. Ukucofa kwelanga kwathatyathwa kamva. Ummangaliso wolwazi lweenkwenkwezi uboniswa ngokuchanekileyo kwindlela amiswa ngayo amatye eStenhenge eSalisbury Plain eNgilane, ngamaxesha e-prehistoric. Izixhobo zayilwa, ezinje ngeglasi yeyure, kunye newashi lamanzi ukulinganisa amaxesha. Ekugqibeleni iwotshi yaqanjwa yaze yaqanjwa emva kweempawu ezilishumi elinambini ze-Zodiac, ngaphandle kokuba ishumi elinababini, njengoko babecinga, ngenxa yokubalula, babalwa kabini. Iiyure ezilishumi elinambini ngemini neeyure ezilishumi elinambini ebusuku. Iingxaki zobomi ezenziwe yimpucuko zenze ukuba ulwahlulo lweyure lube yimizuzwana nemizuzwana ibe yimizuzwana, kunye nokurekhoda ukubakho kweziganeko ezithile zesibini sikhulu kakhulu lixesha, eli ke lahlulwe laba ngamaqhezu ahamba malunga inani elingenamda.

Ngaphandle kwekhalenda, ukulinganisa kunye nokulungisa ukuhamba kwexesha, umntu akanakuba nenkqubela phambili, akukho nkcubeko, kwaye akukho shishini. Iwotshi enokuthi ngoku ibanjelwe, ibonisa umsebenzi owenziwe ngumgca omde woomatshini kunye nabacinga. Ikhalenda sisiphumo senani elipheleleyo leengcinga zomntu zokulinganisa imeko yendalo iphela, kunye nokulawula imicimbi yakhe ngalo mgangatho.
