In African Spiritual Literature, all God’s Creatures and Creations are made of Spirit and Matter. Very Ancient Africans used Qualitative Algebra for “Circumstantial” (Spiritual) Thinking about things of Worth + used Quantitative Mathematics for Rational Thinking about Matter. Qualitative Algebra deals with Nature’s “Seeable” Primary Qualities to gain insight into certain “In-seeable” Primary Qualities in Spiritual and Metaphysical realms—Qualities having Correspondence (i.e. the same Spiritual Elements Essences or Genetics) in spite of their different duties and appearances. After determining Nature’s Order in the “Seeable” world, these priest-astronomers (?20,000 BC to 12,500 BC) inferred that all Cosmic Entities began in Order; shall end in Order; and then begin again. The sky’s “Order” of stars and planets were Mathematically studied to discover Circumstantial Truths. Since Cosmic Elements are Spiritual and thus not directly discernable, insights into observable Rhythms in Nature necessitated having a better understanding of Vibrations. By Vibrations–the point of absolute reality—being primordial Cosmic Creation aspects—aspects foundational for establishing natural Order–aspects useful to serve as a central axis for all future orientation—African Sages deduced that Cosmic Order is Unconditional and derived from an Unconditional Cosmic Force, whom they named (among others) Sekhem. To these ends they searched to find a fixed point in the sky's sacred space. Eventually, the Woyo (Equatorial Africa) and Dogons (Mali) found and named it the Po Tolo (Sirius B) Star (Diop, Civilization p314). Their measurements so matched their already determined portions of Celestial Order (“course or way”) as to itself amount to a revelation regarding the organizing principles by which Ancient Africans recognized its own latent harmony. Inferences from all this knowledge generated insights related to Ordered Rhythms–insights leading to Truths concerning the Earth, the cycles of Nature, the Stars, Constellations, and human body mechanics. A Mooring Icon ‘big picture’ Image is the Cosmos–with most “Hidden”–being like a Spider Web. Still, the same “Genetics” is in the “Hidden,” as is present in the discernable. So, knowing the contents and pattern of any discernable part means that identical aspects are in the “Hidden” despite its different duties.
To illustrate, an apple seed forms an apple tree that gives off apples containing seeds for planting. This “Seed/Seed” pattern is an example of a Knowable (“Seeable”) Primary Quality—designated “Y”. Its Algebraic Equation use is to learn more about its “Un-seeable” (Unknown) “Seed” counterpart, called “X”. The Equal Sign signifies “Y” and “X” have Correspondence (i.e. the same Genetics). This patterned process for manipulating symbols without thinking of any specific meanings they may be standing for (e.g. so many bushels of beans or the area of a platform) paved ways for inferring more Circumstantial Truths and Laws out of originally established Circumstantial Truths. Such enabled them to realize that vibrations of Spiritual Energy formed the Spiritual Elements of Unconditional Love, Truth, Reality, and the Natural–each in the form of a vibration pattern. Ancient African Sages concluded from this type of thinking and research that God is an unknowable Force, but yet God can be known through God's Qualitative and Quantitative Mathematics—as is readily evidenced on all planes of existence by all Creatures and Creations (including each human). Ancient African Sages used these to mystically acquire Nature’s messages so as to design openings to sharpen Spiritual Elements benefits.
They noted God’s Substance (Spirit) appears as the Sun and Moon’s Essence. Both Essences emanate Essentials as luminous circle attributes—i.e. Halos (Nimbus, Aureole). Halos symbolize visual expressions of irradiating physical, Intellectual, and/or mystical Spiritual forces. Since God’s inner nature is Unconditional Love, a Ray from the Sun serves as a metaphor. Because humans are made in the Image and Likeness of God, each human also has God’s Essences displaying as their Selfhood Essentials. The point: each human’s Essence is the God Force of Unconditional Love. Serving as the Supreme Unifying Principle of Cosmic Life, ones Soul’s Essentials equate to such Ultimate Realities as Life, Beauty, Goodness, Happiness, Wellness, Perfection, Universal Truth, Reality, Divine Consciousness, Death, and Natural Order. To each, Nature gives that Pattern a Shape displaying a specific Power to which Corresponding people can connect. jabaileymd.com; JABLifeSkills; Theievoice.com
