“QUALITIES” CLASSIFICATION IN AFRICAN TRADITION
Since all Spiritual Elements–constituting Spiritual Essences–in African Tradition have Unconditional Love aspects underlying each Un-seeable and Seeable Cosmos manifestation, Ancient African Sages used it as their Thought Structure “Home Base” concerning anything. Those Spiritual Elements, being interwoven into an Interchange, emanate mosaics. When used like a skyscraper building’s Base for thinking, those mosaics also constitute Divine Essences for Thought Structures. Similarly, Essences emanate out of a Real Self Soul–i.e. its Divine Consciousness derived from the Spark of God implanted in that human pre-birth. Whenever an Essence’s Virtual (boundary-less) Icon Image meshes with Ether, it takes on an Idea-Form reality in the Metaphysical Mind. However, since the Spiritual Elements consist of the Immaterial, to avoid confusing the Soul’s Essence Idea Image with its onlayed Essential Astral Soul’s Image Ether equivalent, the Essentials were called Qualities by Ancient Africans. When the Divine Plan spurred the Immaterial Image to Involute(gather all its mosaics), that Spiritual Primary Quality entered the Sublime to acquire Ether for that Spiritual Entity. Ether enables the Idea-Form to have a mental conception—a Precept. The Sublime (“just under the lintel”–like the cross-piece of a door underneath which people walk) is an Intangible transitional plane between the Heavens (the Immaterial) and the Metaphysical planes. Because the Sublime is in the upper portion of the Finite Cosmos, it retains in heavy concentrations the harmonious Spiritual Elements features of the Subjective realm’s Ocean of Nun and of “the Heavens.” Hence, the internally unified Sublime Idea-Forms show interdependence, with mosaic interpenetrations in constant creations of itself. Its unity features embrace the Intangible forms of “Oneness” (unified diversity) Indivisibleness, Wholeness, Completeness, and Perfection. Whatever is unified in the Sublime has a complete nature of “Being” and, by being undivided in itself, is separated from all Tangible human-made Entities.
But upon the Idea-Form’s (“what it is”) further descent into Matter, the Ether as the Cause of the existence of an Entity acquires the term Metaphysical Primary Quality. This is like a Sun’s Ingredients, Disposition, and Message in its Halo. When Ether causes Tangible Unbounded, Semi-bounded, or Concrete Things—that is a Secular Primary Quality. Examples: taste, smell, hearing, and touch feeling—extension, figure, motion, rest—solidity and number–respectively. Yet, Ether as simply a supporting part of the conception or existence of something already in “Being-hood,” means it is a Secondary Quality. Examples: colors, heat, cold, and cartoons–to which may be appropriately added colors, sounds, tastes, and smells to what is in like-kind. Secondary Qualities are image or senses embellishments—e.g. about for nuances to be directly experienced by ones senses or by having power impacts to produce certain subtle changes in a directional course of perception or thought. Such may ease the slide into an apprehension of what has heretofore defied clarity; serve to make something into an overtone or undertone; or present or emphasize meanings for purposes of persuading, informing, entertaining, expressing, sharing, demonstrating, or serving as a call to action for whatever reasons. Also, it aids “Education” (“to lead out what is inside”), “Teaching” (“to show” for learning), Instructing (“to build in or into”), or“Training” (active mind exercising in order to form habits).
Tertiary Qualities, like Secondary Qualities, deal with the “what it does” and/or “how it appears”—and if any have an Essence (a “what it is”), that implies intrinsic Properties independent of Environment. They have the power to cause a change in another object as well as to alter ones sensory perception of an object. Examples: the power of aqua regia (nitro-hydrochloric acid) to dissolve gold and platinum as well as the sun to melt wax or produce a suntan. Since C19, economic, aesthetic, and other qualities (e.g. fragility) called Supervenience or Consequential Characteristics are said to have characteristics come along on top of a situation of, or in addition to, certain other characteristics. Any Primary Quality is foundational to developing Knowledge or Wisdom; the rest, for Information. Of the Primary Quality Virtues, Courage is highest esteemed because it is what enables paths to all others. Metaphysical or Secular Primary Qualities are independent of any human’s perception or opinion about them. Those + seeing them “as is” are criteria for being Unconditional Love, Truth, Reality and the Natural. jabaileymd.com
