AFRICAN METAPHYSICAL vs. SUPERNATURAL THINKING

AFRICAN METAPHYSICAL vs. SUPERNATURAL THINKING

Metaphysical Thinking, as originated by Very Ancient Africans, gave rise to concepts of a “Mystic”—i.e. one who deals with realities beyond Philosophical Thought by seeing things as a whole. Such came about by them realizing babies are Vibration Energy Fields, absorbing the Energy vibration rates of those around them—especially mother—including all of her and neighboring people’s prominent subconscious agendas. Babies Real Selves have a natural feeling of inseparableness from what is going on in their environment and are unable to distinguish that from themselves. Neither do they differentiate between the world and the way it acts on them; do not feel separate from what they feel and do, or from what others do; have no idea of a future or past. Since babies have no words to put on what is within them, they continue to experience Reality as it is. They lack limiting effects by not translating incoming experiences gained while their Conscious Attention scans surroundings. Formed instead are Images to which they can relate, starting with the whole and evolving into relating the whole into parts. The sensitivity respect given to Wholeness’ Integrity is contextually “rich” learning for problem-solving. So, Ancient African children naturally started thinking in Nature by seeing things as they really are and what they really do; next in a descriptive way; and then transforming, by analysis, those ingredients into Knowledge. Their culture’s Spiritually oriented communality, focused on the “ME/WE,” meant having Harmony interconnections/interpenetrations in personal, social, intuitive interactions. Such emphasized “Feeling” Humanity as a “Oneness”—a Synthesis superseding Reason. So, African Tradition’s Right Life Living consists of a Spirituality Philosophical Static Background for their Dynamic Foreground. Its aim: “All for one, and one for All” gives Results greater than the sum of their Good acts.

By contrast, cultures having Thoughts as their Static Background are not dealing with Reality. Instead, they artificially (mechanically) objectify Organic Entities–forming “bits and pieces” out of Cosmic Wholeness so as to no longer see them as interconnected/interpenetrated. Such affects: (1) ones or a group’s World-View or Ideologies–a set of Beliefs, Rules, and Laws aimed at establishing or maintaining a certain social system for long term in a consistent state of organization and integration; a way of ordering and simplifying the perceptual world's stunning complexity by making certain fundamental assumptions about the Cosmic nature, the individual, and society. (2) No authorities agree upon an ultimate Source for Creation of the Cosmos, Nature, or Humans (including oneself). No Sound “Base” means “Fake profound” Thoughts are presented as “Plato said,” “Aristotle said,” “Descartes said”. Yet, they are simply giving opinions or speculations—and never the Truth, unless parroting what is in African Philosphy. Such also applies to writings in available European dictionaries, references, and all their “authorities,” for there are no Thought Patterns leading to any Ultimate Truth, Knowledge, or Wisdom. Reasons include that Thoughts of multi-dimensional Reality are in Linear fashion, strung out as one word after another and can never be whole or complete. Linear processes give slower intellect returns than seeing and/or “Feeling” actual ‘goings on’ in any piece of the “big picture” of anything. So much effort is required to keep up with volumes of what one sees in experiencing it as to veil thinking. That volume undergoes Abstracts/Abstractions which cut out all details and thereby give such a reduced image as for it to be grasped all at once. Thoughts within Thinking lack “Aliveness” of Reality since they are Symbols of Reality—like a puppet. The bigger the gap between Reality Nature and its interpreted symbolizing Thoughts, the more vitality is lost. To believe Reality as it is Thought, is merely imitation of Fantasy–and that automatically generates confusion, conflict, and ambiguity. 

(3) There can be no “Yoking” of oneself with the Cosmic Organism or Cosmos, conveying an “Aloneness”–a sense of being “Self-Unknown,” inadequate, and wandering from lacking human’s Needy Want” fundamentals of the “5Ss”—Safety, Security, Sureness/Self-Confidence, Strength, and Stability. One then adopts a self-selected false self-image and self-concept to be ones life’s Ego leader. Ego—an abstract concept—like the non-existent Equator–is ones Contingent Beings (Make-Believe) that only sees differences—embracing only its “Tribal” (“US”) likeness. What they see in enemies is what is in them, so as to blame ‘them’ for their own misery. jabaileymd.com; JABLifeSkills; Theievoice.com
