The single most important reason people have distorted or false information and are absolutely resistant to change is because of Unexamined Assumptions. To “Assume” is to take the showing or appearance of something—taking for granted what is not proved and to adopt or undertake it voluntarily. Assume, Affect, Feign, Pretend, Sham, and Simulate all mean to put on a false appearance—whether out of ignorance or with a deliberate attempt to deceive. “Assumption” was first used by European Supernaturals with reference to the reception of the Virgin Mary into heaven. As background, Ancient African Spiritual Literature says that from the Cosmic god Ra (the solar energy or life-force stored in physical bodies–same as kundalini of the Hindus; Chi of Chinese)–there were successive incarnations until the Mythical Earth World Trinity. This Trinity was the Ancestors of the Ancient Egyptians–consisting of the Father, the Son and the Black Virgin Mother appearing in the form of Osiris, Horus, and Isis (Diop, African Origins, p. 109, 194). All of this was recorded in Africa thousands of years before Christianity and served as a source for much of the European Bible. The family of Auset (Isis), Asar (Osiris, who had a decided Ethiopian appearance), and Horus was the forerunner of the hybrid Christian religion’s Holy Trinity. However, in 200 AD, the European Church departed from Africans by issuing a Creed of Jesus Christ as "Conceived by the Holy Ghost" and "born of the Virgin Mary." In 431 AD, at the Council of Ephesus, Isis removable from the Divine Triad was to make for skin color compatibility by replacing her "black skin" with Europeans created "white skinned" Virgin Mary. Joseph Campbell, a world authority on religious mythology speaks of the Virgin Mary's Assumption into Heaven but, in the next paragraph, states that in a European temple there is a statue of the Black Madonna with the dark Christ on her knee. Then he makes the startling statement: "I do not understand the idea of the Black Madonna." How is it possible for him not to understand when it is no secret that the Virgin Mary is a European made-up version of the African Black Madonna? This is the type of context in which "Seed" images of Assumptions arise on false paths–“Seeds” called "Speculations" since they require many assumptions, and none capable of proof.
Since very ancient times, apart from ongoing wars, Brutes have initiated non-violent measures of controlling others minds by introductions of Assumptions because of their ability to generate an element of doubt in Victims. The resultant uncertainty about what people "knew" is what galvanized chronic frustration, fear, confusion, Illusions, and Delusions. Then Brutes would step in and reconcile all ambivalent attitudes, teaching with false fantasy stories containing such highly abstracted concepts as to create Confusion–stories that none-the-less "SEEMed" right–stories containing some familiar information the people had accepted–stories told in an interesting, imaged way. This combination leads people to simply "give-in" to these false and misleading stories, embrace them as true, and then defend them. Since what “SEEMs” right is presented as guiding Cosmic philosophies of Values, those accepting them as basic Assumptions then form fixed Beliefs that give rise to emotions, attitudes, and character displays of Values. When these Ethos Values become common characteristics of a group, at a given time period, thereafter they pervade that Crowd to actuate major patterns of thought and behaviors. Then, as distorted or false deceptions of what is “Truth,” they find their way into Propositions, Postulates, Premises, Presumptions, or simply Assumptions—all within the category of Presuppositions (an unproven thing taken for granted or assumed). This spreads ‘forever’ as “Destructive False Information.” So, it is best not to believe anything!!!
By philosophically arriving at absolute causes, using fundamental assumptions, is how individuals and cultures form Worldviews which serve as a "Skeleton" of organizing "How Shall I Live" and “How I Will Deal with people I deem to be ‘For Me and Against Me.’” A Society’s Worldview determines the way: (1) people are socialized to perceive, think, feel, and experience the world; (2) how both people and society define categories of Reality and structure it (Cosmology); (3) basic assumptions and beliefs (Ethos) about life, living, and people encountered; (4) ones Values systems (Axiology); (5) assumptions about life, the Cosmos, and the nature of Reality (Ontology); and (6) derive meanings of terms for practical use by means of using parent terms formed by Assumptions.jabaileymd.com
