EUROPEAN CONCEPTS OF OPPOSITES
After borrowing African concepts of Logic and Opposites, the inability of ancient Greeks to think on Ancient Africans’ higher levels of Cosmic existence caused tremendous world confusion and wrong paths for reasoning. First, Greek Stoics combined Rhetoric and Dialectic as the components of “Logic”–declaring Dialectic as either synonymous with, or a part of “Logic”–a foolishness continuing to the end of the Middle Ages. Second, they shattered African Dialectic aspects of the African Law of Opposites inside African Logic into many strange forms and arrangements. Whereas African Sages said for the essential nature of the Good to become manifest in every particular, then in every particular it must be confronted with its opposite so as to strive against it and overcome it. Body builders know this is the way to build muscle strength. Ancient Africans taught their youth this way to build character and judge it by either achievement or by what one had to overcome. One wrong Greek idea about this was that every condition or thought of things–every idea and every situation in the world–leads irresistibly to its opposite–and then unites with it to form a higher or more complex whole. By allowing for the subtle joining, two opposites with different natures accounts for today’s faulty thinking that Love (God-made) and Evil (man-made) are opposites. An extension on such disharmonious thinking–spurred by the Europeans Cosmic Mechanistic and the European Bible’s Cosmic Ceramic Creation myth (i.e. the Divine Potter concept) led them to falsely view a separation between the human Soul and whatever hazy concepts of God they had.
Such gross anti-African Dualism concepts say all things in Nature are separate, real, and exist independently from any underlying essence or support–the belief that pairs of opposites, regardless of their natures, have a polar counterpart–the belief that all things in Nature are self-sustaining and separate from any underlying essence. A today’s analogy for these flaws is the current flowing along an electric wire never shines until it meets with resistance, then it flames forth. Or, saying a light bulb lights up under its own power, separate from any source of power, without recognizing the true source of the illumination is the electricity flowing through the bulb (Ashby, Mysteries of Isis p140). These egoism beliefs, reflecting an immature level of mental understanding of reality, power an illusory personality of seeing oneself as separate and distinct from the world and from other living Beings–finite and limited–an individual in a world of individuals and–“every man for himself.”
Apart from this, life for each human is a struggle between that human’s two selves–the Real Self and the False (Ego) Self. This struggle creates doubts, fear, ignorance, anger, etc. To choose ones Ego to orchestrate ones life generates a duality mentality–a limited mind and sense characterized by emotional qualities, not evil in themselves but each can lead to needless evil behavior. A Dualism mindset leads to agitation, frustration, suffering, and problematic ways of dealing with life because the mind is trained to see either good or evil, right or wrong, Me vs. You, Us vs. Them and not the whole of creation composed of many equal parts. Such a degraded way of thinking generates either a ‘little god’ presentation or self-demeaning one, starting with Selfhood Splintering inside a Self-Absorbed mindset. Self-defeating behaviors take one down Fear paths, going as deep as the inner recesses of ones mind. Resultant Fetters–anger, hatred, greed, lust, envy, jealousy, frustration, selfishness, arrogance, pride–tends to dismantle ones Spiritual Self-Esteem. When such is socially accepted by ones ‘little god’ peers, especially Satanists and Brutes, it expresses as ruthless aggression for power by means of violence, to control others, and to rape Nature. Since Brutes are miserable, their thoughts, feelings, expressions, and actions are dedicated to getting “Sick pleasures from hurting others as well as Kill/Take/Destroy whatever is in their path. They have ignorance of the deeper essence of existence–the transcendental, formless, and eternal essence of creation from which one arises. The situation with ones mindset is that it is uncontrolled, untrained, and animalist in having rampant desires and selfish thoughts. This leads to mental enslavement. Impulse control and discovering of the underlying unity behind duality are essential for correction, for Spiritual Elements can have no violence or ill-will. Harmony arises spontaneously. jabaileymd.com
