Recall the fascination of looking at a sheet of paper containing a “Magic Picture”. That stereogram, at first glance, still seems to have only two dimensions—up/down and right/left. But, by continued staring at the “magic picture,” a mental switch puts light on what gets closest to its true Reality. Now seen is the “hidden” picture with the added third dimension—a backward/forward deepness. Alone, that changes the entire meaning from ones mere two-dimensional interpretations as well as enables arranging and combining mosaic bits and pieces of those three dimensions into ever increasing Options for creativity, invention, and discovery. In African Tradition, Cosmic Reality is a multi-dimensional system of vibrating “wiggly” organic ingredients–each interdependent; all operating in the fourth-dimension of Space and usually Time. Since the “what it is” ingredients of Reality are the Spiritual Elements of Unconditional Love, Truth, Reality, and the Natural, their flowing Laws of Nature patterns descend throughout all Reality, including the Earth World. Meanwhile, each Entity engages in its own Unique “what it does” duties with its customized “how it appears” display. Upon moving out of its Immaterial Spiritual Subjective Realm’s Home Base, it meets with–and is layered by—the Sublime Realm’s Ether to become an Essence-Form. Such Archetypes emanate Prototype Entities & they yield specific Entities (e.g. specific humans). Each of these aspects are harmoniously occurring at the same time as well as being in the same checkered “Spaces.” The composite Variables of Reality are endless. The greatest of Poets, whose job is to say what cannot be said, can never get the exactly right words to even give a close approximation of Reality. Humans flaw it by: (1) selecting a piece of the Reality they see—but which could be Illusions—(2) mentally scanning that piece with minds not seeing the vast majority of what there is to see. They (3) focus on no more than three of the Variables that fashion Reality Continuity (the Unity in Reality’s diversity). To elaborate, African Drummers’ “Talking Drums” unfold messages via drumbeats by reproducing multiple variable tones and rhythms.
One drummer may perform a four-beat rhythm with one hand; a three beat with the other; a movement of one foot six times; and a movement of the other twice–all at the same time! To consider only 2 or 3 of these Variables in descriptions of that Drummer is to deprive what is described of that performance from any Reality possibilities. Similarly, to Think about and describe what is going on in Nature is to (4) use words and images in a Linear process—i.e. one built serially, block-by-block, step-by-step. The Linear can never clearly show how all factors of the environment and of experience co-exist in a state of active interplay, for such can only be “Felt.” An analogy is the story of the Six Blind Men and the Elephant. Each blind man was asked to describe his impression of the elephant. The first blind man fell against the elephant and said the elephant was a wall. The second, feeling at the tusk, called the elephant a spear. The third, holding the squirming trunk, considered the elephant to be a snake. The fourth, reaching out and feeling the knee, thought the elephant was a tree. The fifth, upon examining the large ear, declared the elephant represented a fan. Finally, the sixth, seizing onto the swinging tail, described the elephant as a rope. Each blind man, says the folk-tale, disputed loud and long, each in his own opinion, exceedingly stiff and strong. Though each was partly in the right, all were in the wrong. Whenever people discuss a significant subject there will invariably be wrong, incomplete, misarranged, and poorly combined information. This takes on tremendous importance is researching anything about African history in general and Black Americans in particular since it is rarely right.
The point: nothing actually is, as it is described. Thus, it is against Processes of Nature to substitute Verbal Language for “Feelings.” All Reality is likened to a Candle Flame Concept–whose core is its Constant Fire Path. Layers around the core—like leaves on a head of lettuce—are variable “Streamers”. To apply that to a human’s life journey, every “human-to-be” was imbrued with the embedding of the core Image of the Flame of the Cosmic Force while in that human’s original primordial state. This means ones “Spark” has all the Flame’s ingredients to handle Core/Streamers of life. Since Nature is the Home of God’s Wisdom, it is the model for “How Shall I Live?”–so as to spread “ME/WE” benefits as a Flame, not as a glow or burnt out. jabaileymd.com; JABLifeSkills; Theievoice.com
