It is said that Borzuy a physician in ancient Iran read a book of the Hindus where it was written that there was an herb on a mountain in India that when sprinkled on a dead body would bring it back to life. After searching through India and finding no such way to everlasting life Borzuy asked a sage of India to explain what the book actually meant. The sage said, the herb is the scientist; science is the mountain, everlasting out of reach of the multitude. The corpse is the man without knowledge, for the uninstructed man is everywhere lifeless. Through knowledge man becomes revivified.
