The Riddles of Mount Rakmun


This is Rakmun. We see her snow decorated face and forest robe. She’s been around since before the first mouse-like primates climbed into the trees.

I asked her why trees won’t talk to me about humans.
”Trees are the most noble forms of life. They capture the energy of the sun and give it to the earth, as soil, pure air, nourishment and beauty. Let us not forget the beauty.

”I will present you with three riddles,” continued Rakmun. ”This first one will test your background. The second will test your worthiness. The third will test your ability. If you can answer all three riddles, I will tell you why the trees won’t talk to you about humanity.

”Here is the first riddle (a classic) to be answered tomorrow:
What walks on four legs in the morning, two legs during the day, and three legs in the evening?”


“A fool can ask more questions than a wise person can answer.”
