EXTREME DESPAIR’S “AWE” IN THE ENSLAVED (2)
The “Fishnet Moment“—i.e. that instance when a fishnet was thrown over a free African in Africa to thereafter enslave him/her “forever”—set-off a cascade of simultaneous Maafa (immeasurable catastrophe) forces in each victim’s Spirit, Body, and Mind. Metaphorically, those forces attacking each Selfhood were like a series of hard pounding waterfalls spreading out over steep rocks—forces disrupting Spiritual/Mental/Physical networks–networks producing out-puts serving as in-puts for the next component series in each network. Resultant Consequences started by each destroyed Selfhood aspect instantly competing with all others for the spotlight of domination to signify being the most devastating. Even though mind specifics of any given victim will never be known, Human Nature present in the “ever lived” 37 billion of people has such a “sameness” as to allow for reasonable inferences about Enslaved minds’ probability happenings. Thus, assumptions based upon my education, training, and experiences are that: (1) at the “Fishnet Moment” the Enslaved had an instant shift from using their Rational and wholistic brain thinking over to their Instinct/Emergency Brains (associated with “Fight, Flight, or Fright”); (2) an instantaneous dangling of utter and total Selfhood helplessness; (3) a mystical transporting of victims above and beyond their most “far-out” perceived bounds of known or imagined sensibility–beyond their body’s systems to respond to danger–beyond help from any source, even from God and their Living-Dead Ancestors; (4) the “Awe” making all seem unreal; (5) their Instincts overwhelmed with a ‘Larger than Life’ Supernatural vastness; and (6) all subsequent mental activity, by generating Illusions, eventually sliding them into a Supernatural World so as to adopt Delusional thinking from being beyond their imaginative orienting capabilities. These are Metaphysical Extreme Despair Disease ingredients.
Typically, being shocked into a ‘Larger than Life’ mindset has an “Awe” (C13 Old Icelandic) Effect. The “Awe” state–from an unexpected tremendously surprise that the “Thing” could appear at all–contains a glob of Emotions associated with a Contingent Being. The emotional stimulus–e.g. excited by a threatening evil monster or a “Thing’s” extremely grand character–shows as fear, fright, pain, distress, terror, dread, apprehension and fascination. These render one incapable of instinct defense. The “Awe“: (a) wipes out all meaning of everything, making trivial any personal preoccupations; (b) leaves no time for judgment of this “Thing’s” formidable power; (c) like Wonder, nothing is taken for granted; and (d) happenings are unbelievable because everything is either upside down or “inside out”. The “Awe” mindset is like being invested inside the Unknown– like experiencing a wordless mystery with an over-powering aura or undertone—like a Mystery sky’s rays stemming from a constellation of hidden stars. “Awe’s” ingredients lack correspondence with reality and thus may seem to only superficially imprint on the mind. But they, in actuality, are indelible. Those “Seed” ingredients design products which constitute Superstitions. Since the “Awed” now believe the Supernatural reigns, superstitions are so firmly believed in as to be totally resistant to one being educated out of them, no matter how utterly ones own reason may reject them.
Equated to the Enslaved highly imaginative “Awe” experiences was their “fish-netted” physical ominous (i.e. forecasting more evil) happenings. A simile likens them to rolling thunder of a lightning storm, with its electric displays–including personal strikes on every aspect of their Selfhoods. The combination of these physical events with “Awe’s” traits of Dismay (deprived of power), Consternation (so terrifying as to prostrate ones Selfhood), and Dread (overwhelming fear) served as constant Alarms (‘calls to arms’) to which these hapless victims could not respond. “Despair” (without hope), when Extreme, establishes a “no doubt” atmospheric effect of Certainty about the worst happening to them “forever”. One Consequence is to so wear out ones Courage that ones discontinued efforts also paralyze any desire to better a “ME/WE” situation. One settles on simply “Making Do”. Another is a chronic fury mindset of Desperation—i.e. a sense of always being cornered by predators, unable to run away, and, as a last resort, react with rash or frantic actions—as in taking reckless actions and venturing into any risks, regardless of consequences. jabaileymd.com
