It is also a zone of transmission of Yachay knowledge (science-wisdom) where the Yachak and elders, upon coming into contact with the world of the masters and lords of living places, penetrate the world of wisdom and the sublime worldview to methodical learning. They are areas where the wise interrelate with the Protector Beings so that the animals do not move away and the natural balance is maintained.
