AFRICAN BINARY SYSTEM
In c20,000 BC, as concept originators of today’s computers, the Ifa of the Nigerian Yorubas believed there was a storehouse of Knowledge containing Universal Forms–Idea-Forces–as patterns, expressing itself in Numbers. These Cosmic Numbers, the Ifa said, are hidden orderly balanced systems, composed of two digits 0 and 1 (today each called a bit). Derived from the Amenta–and therefore being a “Divine Archetype” (i.e. Seed)–each by itself reproduces itself and become the “Thing” it makes, called a “Divine Paradigm”. They symbolized and called this Binary System the Dafa–using them for forecasting. By applying this same principle more broadly into two parts, situated on the extremes of the same pole, is what formed the Principle of Polarity basis–that the Universe is founded upon multiple contradictions. A later Chinese renaming and symbolizing of these African Laws of Opposites are Yin (negative principles of the Cosmos) and Yang (positive Principles). Symbolized as fishes, Yin/Yang are positioned in opposition to each other and go round and round, like night and day. Though Yin and Yang are not in conflict, as in trying to eat each other, each can only be there because of the other. This Yin/Yang concept essentially translates into the positive and negative duality as the ultimate reality of all existence and all that permeates the Material universe. It is based on the primordial binary (i.e. something consists of two parts) elements of dark and light. Such a Binary System display was accessible to the specially trained Very Ancient African Shaman via Trance–a Possession upon contact. Very Ancient Africans taught that all Dualities (pairs of natural opposites like light/dark) must obey Binary Laws. With respect to numerics, binary signifies any mathematical system having two at its base–e.g. black/white, hot/cold, inside/outside. Yes/no, on/off, and positive/negative are all encounters of a binary nature. These polar opposites are like two sides of a coin–each side joined to the other–meaning one is void without the other–the entire coin being composed of Vibrations.
Since Vibrations are pulsations, the presence of an electrical pulse is 1 while its absence is 0. These Very Ancient African Sages perceived a kind of energy-knowledge field surrounding the life and soul of the human that binds each together with their family and own destiny from life to life–a process using a binary system to unfold the particular pattern. Just as one could not read the black ink prints on a paper without the white background of that paper, nothing happens without its complementary opposite. To see these differences as a “Oneness” is an Awakening that is intimately a part of “Knowing Thyself”–meaning every Real thing in the external world is part of oneself. The (underlying) Base/Foundation for all real things present in the Cosmos is the Spiritual Elements. A reason paths into Metaphysical Unknown realms could be opened up is because African Sages realized everything in the Cosmos (including the stars and planets) is based upon a specific pattern. For a Thing to have a Shape means it is a pattern of energy movement frozen in space and its power depends upon that shape. Math allows assessing Things because there is Order and consistent Patterns underlying all natural events–both derived from a common Cosmic Intelligence behind all laws of Nature. “Natural” is made possible because of the consistent patterns underlying natural events.
Key to correcting much life-shaping misinformation is to realize Life and the Cosmos are like a “Unified Dance” of opposites and yet share a common Base/Foundation. To know this exposes one to transpersonal realms of Knowledge and experience. In the way each string in a fishnet is essential to the fishnet’s functions, in African Tradition entities comprising the Cosmic Organism reflect a “Vitalism” of a displayed Divine Intelligence. All entities are real, are part of each other, and are imparters of “Aliveness” to the basic Life of the Cosmos. This living force is also a matrix–recognized by what underlies aesthetic sensibilities in Sculpture, Art, and the like–to which one can intimately relate. Hence, all God’ creatures and creations are innately “Alive.” By contrast, in a dominant Western view, the Cosmos and all within is an artifact (mechanically or from a Divine Potter made). Believers in this concept have no difficulty in killing other people because they have no connection to them and because people are seen as no different than machines. jabaileymd.com
