Ancient Africans recognized a human’s brain in three main interconnected divisions: (1) Ancient (or Reptilian Brain, Brain Stem, R-Complex); (2) Limbic (Emotional, Mammalian, Mid-Brain); and (3) Rational (Cerebral Cortex). To the Ancient Brain, my research adds subdivisions of Instinct, Omnibus, and Brute Brains—all exhibiting similarity but each still quite unique. A crude analogy is the Instinct Brain likened to Cosmic Metaphysical Chaos; the Rational, to Cosmic Metaphysical Order. Instincts, being about in-born Survival, Self-Preservation, and Self-Protection, are in keeping with the “First Law of Nature”. In danger, Instincts show Continuity (unity in the diversity) in each of its new displays. In some emergency “Life or Death” situations, since the Animalistic Instinct Brain–similar to the Animalistic Omnibus and Brute Brains–has no concern for the welfare or happiness of others, it expresses Spiritual “Selfishness” within the context of focusing on ensuring its own “Survival”. In similar or opposite situations, Instincts show Selfless Spiritual “Non-Self ME” meshing with “WE”—to be a “ME/We as a Oneness”. In great dangers, such “Indivisible ME/WE” Individuals” show as “have to” heroines/heroes. But, Cosmic Metaphysical Disorder—an innate neutral Static Background which enables comparison Appreciations of Chaos/Order in the Dynamic Foreground—can have its Brute and Omnibus Brains switched to Evil operations by a human’s Free Will Acquired methods.
That disconnection from this “two-sides of a coin” relationship means one is a False Self, ruled by a selected Ego, whose orientation operates only in the Brute Brain. This makes for Selfhood Splintering–meaning one part of ones Selfhood becomes Self-Absorbed (viewing everything within ones world in relationship to ‘me, me, me’ Selfishness); the other follows dictates of External World influences and its pursuit of “Scarce Matter Desirables.” By being Self-Unknown, False Self people deal only within Fantasy Supernatural Realms. Resultant Illusions, Hallucinations, and Phantasmagoria (seeing aliens, monsters) + Distortions of all that is seen, felt, and thought, make for such overwhelming fears, insecurities, powerlessness + a sense of worthlessness, inferiority, and self-hatred as to cause them to defensively Cling to whatever is available that might help. Similarly, Egos grab at straws from drowning in their overwhelmingly flawed, irrational, illogical and Non-Rational (‘nonsense’) Thinking. Indifference/Hate/Evil/Sadism (IHES) is their lifestyle. To get momentary relief from their profoundly unhappy lives, they only know to Kill/Take/Destroy/Dominate/Oppress/Control. Ancient Africans Personified such Brute Brain acts as the god Set. Personified means giving life in the form of mythological gods/goddess to some non-feeling and unreal Being. That god Being represents faculties and entities actually within the person touched by them. Yet, since African Tradition has no concept of Evil, Devil, or Hell—which are all Make-Believe–African Sages have attributed this Brute Brain Fantasy-Land orientation simply to Ignorance—i.e. the ig-noring of the benefits of Metaphysical Disorder while choosing against having any connection with the Natural World’s Cosmic Organism.
Europeans borrowed Set out of the Ancient African Bible to make into Satan. So, the god Set personifies humans' struggles with 7 main fetters (lust, ego, anger, fear, attachments, lies, and greed). They stop at nothing to achieve their ends for Power. At the core of Brute Brain ways is the god Set’s generations of Confusion, Trickery, and Deceit to achieve "Dark Side" goals. Such explains a common question: “If God is Love, why is there so much evil in the world?” The answer is Evil originates in a human’s own brain—not from some outside sources or God (Amen, Metu Neter IV: 197). Self-Evil creations include: (1) one choosing an Ego for ones “True Self,” not by an act of Will, but from Desire to live life out of ones Lower (Animalistic) Self; (2) Ignorance, as not knowing Right from Wrong by ones mind turned “Inside-Out”. (3) a lifestyle of attacking the Spiritual Elements of Unconditional Love, Truth, Reality, and the Natural—a Satanist feature; (4) having Flexible Morals whereby one knows that what one is doing is wrong but chooses, for self-gain, to do it anyway; (5) Excuses to procrastinate (“I’m Too Busy”) instead of self-changing to do Right; and (6) Supernatural heaven salvation beliefs—e.g. God will accept an apology just before death–or a payment (e.g. donations to the church). Most are Socialized into these destructive attitudes. jabaileymd.com; JABLifeSkills; Theievoice.com
