WHAT IS THE UNKNOWN?
The word “Unknown” is an “Umbrella” term designating: (1) something of a “Like-Kind” nature in “Like-Kind” Things; (2) that all share ideas, concepts and/or features having application on more than one Cosmic plane of existence; and (3) each plane of existence as unique and operating under its own rules. An analogy is that of many chicks–possessing the same “Genetics” but each with unique features—and all hiding under the wings of their mother. Very Ancient Africans, following brilliantly done astro-mathematical scientific investigations, determined certain fixed Laws (i.e. Truths) in the Cosmos from which they made inferences. One is that the One Universal Spiritual High God–not the Supernatural God of Europeans–resides in the all Black Amenta. Although, they said, God is Unknowable, still God is known by God’s manifestations—a process which began with the pouring out of God’s Mind the primal waters called the Ocean of Nun. The contents of the Nun consist of the Spiritual Elements—Unconditional Love, Truth, Reality, and the Natural. This Subjective Realm is called the “Void” because of its “Nothingness” in the African sense of the non-material existence of Cosmic Nun “Things”—meaning its reality is in a “virtual” (boundary-less) state of potential possibilities, without objects and without forms—a “no-thing” condition. Despite the Subjective Realm being Unknown to almost all humans, cultivated and disciplined human minds can become acquainted with it by being in a “Hetep” state (a Kamitic word for a state of unshakable inner peace and bliss coming from appreciation for ones blessings). Since it is situated in a human’s Divine Consciousness, “Hetep” is the Ultimate in “inner” peace. Once in the “Void”–this “Nothingness,” the human Selfhood is bathed with the greatest power possible.
Just as there are different waves in the ocean, all possessing the “Genetics” of the ocean while each wave is unique, there are different planes of reality existence with the same “Genetics” and are similarly unique. This means all Cosmic planes are linked with those of another in their essence and in their ultimate significance. Thus, to know any given aspect on any given plane means one has a “sense” of what is on the other planes, despite those planes being otherwise Unknown. Ancient Africans used gods/goddesses to personify attributes of a given plane and thereby convey the mathematically derived significance of each Metaphysical plane. Metaphysical (the Spiritual Elements displays away from the Physical Realm) implies any natural phenomenon or the occurrence of any event does so without human participation—and could not have occurred differently or failed to occur. So Unknown are these planes to the human mind (in the sense of ‘unfamiliar’) as to be thought of as vague, lofty, and not down to Earth. To elaborate, because of the Order and consistent Patterns underlying natural events, Mathematics allows assessments which give rise to mental items having significant worth, value, or meaning. The appropriate prioritization of Thoughts for a given issue provides the clearness and the Order to lay out paths for the “Rightness” of choices, decisions, and solutions. Thus, based upon derived Circumstantial Evidence and Inferences, Ancient African Sages said with Certainty that: Nature is the God Substance the Cosmic Spirit impregnates into the essence of God’s creatures and creations. They deemed Nature to be the home of God’s Laws; the source of humans’ wisdom–and that Nature and humans are an indivisible unity, like two sides of a coin.
Of concern here is the Unknown of “Who am I?”—an awareness or unawareness of which is at the bottom of all the mysteries of ones think, feel, say, act, and react aspects of ones life itself and what ones employs concerning “Life-Living.” The African Tradition answer to “Who am I?” is the permanently enduring birth-gift of the “Spark of God” contained in ones Divine Consciousness—i.e. the “Self”. Through such capacities as delight and wonder, every human newborn knows this. However, since each human has a Free Will to institute a coup d’etat—i.e. a sudden and violent over-throw of this governing “Spark of God”—it can be replaced with an Ego supreme authority. From ones False Self then being fashioned by unreal aspects and by operating out of an unreal realm of existence, ones Ego absolutely establishes an Unknown “Who am I?” state. As long as ones False Self orchestrates ones life, ones self-identity can never be known nor ever ascertained—a lost Soul! jabaileymd.com
