New Media's Propagation of the Social Sciences through Digital Blood Bathing

Traditional footnotes and bibliographies are literary devices of control when used as a persuasive tool in the propagation of the social sciences.  Many of you already know this intuitively. But I’d like to explain the mental mechanics behind what you know so that you know HOW you know what you know.

On the surface traditional footnotes and bibliographies help to foster a sense of academic transparency between the reader and the author. That’s a good thing. However, beneath the surface, they are  also applications that constrict the reader’s interpretation of the text so that they never venture out beyond the narrow intellectual confines that the author has set up for them in the text.  

Subliminally this reinforces the notion that you should automatically defer to an authority figure, not based on the merit of what the authority figure is saying, but solely on the basis that what is being said is coming from an established authority figure. In other words, YOU ARE BEING  PROGRAMMED TO BOW to A.D.A.M. (Academic Director of the Artificial Man).

Artificial humans do not have cultivated INSTINCTS that allow them to discern from truth and blatant falsehood. Artificial didn’t originally mean fake, though. That’s the oversimplified definition of the word. It is actually a reference to anyone or anything that is a product Craftsmanship. A mason is a craftsman, but so is a butcher.

The cataloging method that I used for my book, The Treasures of Darkness, gives the reader fuller insight as to how I arrive at my distinct conclusions while simultaneously opening the door for them to go BEYOND my interpretations of the topics I introduce through a more direct experience of the information that I am sharing. That is my sacrifice and the future's gain. This ritual is achieved through the medium of Black ink on a page. My book is called The Treasures of Darkness for more reasons than I can explain through this format.

Going forward, I will explore new formats for a more holistic reception of distributable information. I am in pursuit of The New Book. This new book is a steadily flowing lifestream of knowledge that unifies various forms of art and media under one umbrella for a more visceral learning experience that stimulates the senses in the body of the anointed. Enjoy your weekend, and stay blessed.

The Rules of Time & Space in a Wild Wild Country

Time and space are inseparable. The purpose of closing your eyes to meditate is to stand outside of time by removing space from your field of vision. There is no space in absolute darkness, therefore there is no time in it either. Meditation is a modality that inevitably leads us to The Treasures of Darkness.

To say that time is an illusion is to say that space is also an illusion. Space is made up of the 3 dimensions of height, width, and depth which all tangible objects have. If you tell yourself that tangible things are not real, then you will have trouble acquiring or maintaining tangible things and you will be materially poor. You cannot successfully obtain something if you tell yourself that it isn’t real. Universal law will not allow it.

Time is NOT an illusion. It is a construct that one can transcend and then return back to at will. We have bidirectionality of movement in this expansive sea of human experience. This is the only perspective I know of that allows a person to grow in their spiritual awareness and abilities, while also enjoying an abundance of tangible materials within the Western cultural model we live in. Saying that “time is an illusion” sounds deep when you’re talking about “chakras” and “Kundalini energy”, but it’s really a philosophical path to poverty.

Many people embrace the spiritual philosophies of the Far East without considering the impact that they will have on their Western fiscal realities.

I just completed watching a Netflix docuseries about Indian guru Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh. He’s perhaps more recognized to his readers as Osho the Master. The series is called Wild Wild Country. The 6-part documentary documents the rise and fall of the city that Osho and his Rajneeshees built in Oregon. Osho got his nigga wake up call once he came to America from India to secure the Bag from upwardly mobile Americans eagerly seeking new perspectives on spirituality. The program is definitely a must see for all spiritual aspirants.

One of the things that becomes clear to the perceptive viewer who watches the series is the fact that in order for Osho and his followers to contend with the Hillbillies in Oregon, they had to adopt a more aggressive, and therefore a more Western, worldview to hold on to their LAND.

They employed statecraft in order to buy themselves TIME.  All land occupies TIME AND SPACE, which is a very real construct within the Western cultural model. This is why Real Estate has so much monetary value attached to it in Western societies.  This fact should give you an even deeper understanding of the simple phrase “time is money, and money is time.” Think about what that means.

If the Rajneeshees held strictly to the more passive tenants of traditional Eastern Philosophy they would not have been able to secure land in the United States.

Osho the Gangsta and his secretary Sheela (who was the Indian goddess Durga incarnated) saw to it that they had more guns than the entire Oregon police department. They preached about sexual freedom and transcendental meditation, but they had guns to protect their TIME AND SPACE (i.e. LAND).

They probably scared the Hillbillies testing their aim at their privately owned firing ranges. That was a bad idea, because many white men are traumatized and haunted by the thought of being devoured not only be people of color, but their culture, even if that culture is being advanced primarily by other white men and women. Those fearful white men will move in on any perceived threat to their way of life (whether real or imagined) with reckless abandon.

Wild Wild Country is a great documentary. Pay attention to what the Rajneeshees got right in their approach, but also, what they got wrong. There is a lot for you to learn in this particular Netflix series. Like I said in my book, TheTreasures of Darkness: Living Jewels for Spiritual Resurrection, the group that is united by core values that all of its members choose to live by must live uniquely unto themselves, while appearing to be like everyone else.

Uniforms that make you easily identifiable make you a target. How do avid Freemasons dress? They dress like everyone on the planet that you can imagine. Moving through the sea of humanity with one singular mind, and no identifiable appearance, makes you very powerful.

Cultural Appropriation & Master vs. Slave Morality

This ongoing conversation about Cultural Appropriation is an interesting one when you look at it without the murky lens of Slave Morality.

Culture isn’t so much defined by race as much as it is defined by the local customs of a people who may even share the same race and national identity. Even though northern Italians and Sicilians share the same race and national identity, their cultures are very different. They speak differently. They eat differently.

Some will say that this difference in culture is because the Sicilians were more heavily influenced by Blacks, who were of a different race. However Sicilians were not culturally influenced by Blacks as a broad, monolithic group. They were influenced by SPECIFIC groups of Blacks who had a common national identity based on a shared culture. The Zulu of South Africa did not  give  Sicily it’s swag. Northwest Africans did. This goes back to the Punic Wars of the 3rd century B.C.E.

Let’s say that Albert is an African American who is mainly of Ghanaian and Senegalese descent. He doesn’t know this, though, because no one alive in his family can trace their lineage back to a specific country in Africa. Nevertheless, Albert wants to feel connected  to Africa and its people. He becomes “self-initiated” into Ifa without being authenticated by Yoruba practitioners or Afro Latino custodians. Is Albert guilty of cultural appropriation? Of course he is.

While all West Africans may adhere to overlapping principles that guide their perspectives and ways of being, they also have a variety of distinct cultural expressions that highlight those principles. What then grants people the legitimate right to claim a culture as their own if we know that a person's race does not automatically tell us what their culture is? Principles deal with generalized themes and concepts. Culture is more specific. We are talking about macro vs micro, here.

 To assume that cultural appropriation is solely based on  racial differences is to ignore the cultural diversity that exists within a single racial group. Remember, the term is called Cultural Appropriation, not Racial Appropriation. Race is an artificial concept constructed by white men with an inferiority complex. Culture is an organic expression of human instinct relative to local geography. Culture is dictated by the intelligences that exist in the soil, minerals, and plant life of the land.

If you are not from the land, and you have not been authenticated by the people who are directly influenced by the intelligences of the land, and you adopt their culture to your personal benefit, then you are an appropriator of their culture. It doesn’t matter if you are of the same race as they are. Race can be an indicator of culture, but it is not culture in and of itself. Africa is a vast continent with many rich cultures. No Black person in the Americas has an ancestral claim to EVERY single one of these beautiful cultures. They only have a claim to the ones that they are bound to directly by blood, or by paying dues to the culture’s ambassadors and custodians. 

Black parents with children should consider placing a strong emphasis on their children learning S.T.E.A.M (Science Technology Engineering Art Mathematics). If more of our children become geneticists then our descendants won't be claiming African cultures that they do not have blood ties to. When you Big Up people who are not YOUR people by blood then you will not gain spiritual power from it. Your bloodline will not advance. It doesnt matter if the people youre giving props to are Black like you. ARE YOU RELATED TO THEM BY BLOOD? This is all that matters. 

When my niece grows up, she can wear traditional clothes and adornments that women in India wear without being a cultural appropriator. My sisters and I have a great, great grandmother who was from India. My blog is called Third Eye Max for a reason. If you are creative, then ancestor reverence can take on many forms. I give props to my ancestry from Ghana, but I'm on my Shiva shit too. 

One might say that I’m lost and confused, and that true cultural appropriation is when a dominant racial group steals culture from a submissive racial group and makes money off of it. In essence, the dominant class fucks the submissive class, nuts on them, and walks away without saying “I love you.” Fucking monsters!

Masochists who have a perverted sense of power that they wield over others by affirming their perpetual victimhood, love this definition. So do white liberals, because it promotes the docile slave narrative that they wrote long ago. It’s the narrative of the Noble  Black wimp who clings to Slave Morality instead of Master Morality. As a direct result, he is used and tossed in the trash like a disposable paper plate. 

White liberals want Black people to always see themselves as helpless victims, who are somehow morally superior to whites solely because they are human doormats for whites. Get the fuck outta here. God forbid Black people see themselves as conquerors who take what they want because they like what they take.

The reality is that in this global village, we’ve all been cultural appropriators. We have been cultural appropriators in the way that I originally described it at the outset, not how white liberals and their Black puppets describe it. We take elements from cultures outside of our own because we’re attracted to the novelty of human expression. We admire the creativity that people showcase as they demonstrate to us who they are through art, food, physical gestures, religion, and fashion. Culture Vultures are people who've made cultural appropriation their lifestyle and only reason for existing. They are parasites. Vampires. That is far more extreme than cultural appropriation.

I don’t want to hear any accusations of cultural appropriation from pompous Black folks in dashikis espousing the superiority of classical African thought, while making money off of Vegan centered businesses. Veganism doesn’t come out of any ancient African traditions. It comes from white people influenced by the Eastern Philosophies of Asia. Those who tell you something far different are just New Agers in kente cloth. Veganism is dope. It’s responsible. It’s wonderful. I respect it. But it’s not African.

You can’t utilize TRADITIONAL  African modalities for spiritual empowerment and be a Vegan. I remember long before Veganism became popular, Vegans did not use animal products of any kind, for ANY purposes. The appropriators of veganism today say that as long as you eat vegan you are a vegan. Before that, it was a pervasive lifestyle that was not limited to just diet. 

Cultural Appropriators always adapt the tenants of foreign cultures to make them more amenable to their familiar lifestyles because it’s more convenient for them to do so.  If we’re honest, we can admit that we have all done this. There is nothing wrong with incorporating other indigenous cultural elements into your psychic makeup, but give them their respect too! Dont try to make it seem as if you are Super African in EVERY facet of your life. You’re lying!!!

Cultural Appropriation is the hallmark of globalization. We bust open each others closets to wear each others clothes. We break open each others refrigerators to eat each others food. The way many of us see it, all human beings live in the same house. This house is called planet Earth. So it’s all good.
