Elements of African Intelligent Design
The Spirituality and Intellectuality of the inter and outer experience of historical time and spiritual space.
From the point of view of Ancient West African Spirituality and Intellectuality, historical time is measured in generations of a people, and space is the culture each generation created.
For example, let’s take a look at what Black generations did during and after the Civil War starting with the generation that fought in the war, born in the late 1830s and 1840s. Their children, the generation born in late 1860s, 1870s, and very early 1880s, created the Black family culture. And their children, the generation born in the late 1890s and early 1900s, created the “New Negro, and his culture.” The New Negro’s children, the generation born in the late 1920s 1930s, and early 40s, created the “Civil Rights” culture of the 1960s. And their children, the generation born in the 1950s, 1960s, and early 1970s, created the Hip-hop cultural movement. And their children, the generation born in the late 1970s, 1980s, and early 1990s created the Black money culture. What will their children, the generation born in the late 1990s and early 2000s create in the 2020s? What are those generations but the fruits on African American’s tree of life planted by the river in the land of our Ancestors. (as the old “Negro Spirituals” say)
It is impossible for a tree to survive without its roots. African American’s roots are buried in Ancient West African Spirituality and Intellectuality. But what does that mean? It means that on the Black tree of life, the fruit of the tree owes its existence to their roots. Without the roots, there can be no fruit. This is a self-evident truth. But what are Black people to do with that truth, since a majority of American Blacks, in the course of history, converted to Christianity, Islam, and Egyptian religious beliefs. Does that replace their roots?
What does it mean to convert to a religious belief? What takes place in the spirituality of a person when they convert from one system of beliefs to another? A tree cannot change its roots or the fruit it produces, another self-evident truth. Does an apple tree suddenly convert to producing oranges? A person does not change their spirituality when they convert, they change the way they relate to it. Their spirituality stays the same; the only changes are the rituals in which it is packaged.
The universal experience of human nature is that a person consists of two parts, one part that “wants” things (soul), and another part that “transforms” what is wanted into “reality” (mind) For example, the “left brain and right brain theory.”
Universally speaking, people spend their time either trying to get what they want, or enjoying the things they have produced. This is something that everybody on earth experiences 24/7. It is not a question, it’s a self evident truth based on people's experience in life.
