Why nix need so many Deps ?

I'm not a professional user, I'm not blaming, I'm just looking for answers here.

Why nix need deps like these xorgproto, alsa-lib ...? It just a package manager.
Maybe it only need itself without other deps?

root@vps ~# pacman -S nix

Why? Because that's how software works when it uses external libraries. See pactree.

Dependencies save duplicate efforts. A dependency can be used by other packages instead of each developer having to re-create the wheel.
