The Hemispheres of the Brain

A Brief Definition of Religion

Religion, Trance and Ancestors​
Moving along to "The Hemispheres of the Brain", the salient point is that the brain is divided into two hemispheres-left and right. Among other things, the left hemisphere governs external modes of acquiring knowledge about the world around us and the universe, while the right hemisphere governs internal modes of acquiring knowledge--so called left brain vs. right brained thinking. The left brain processes information in a linear, sequential fashion, e.g., it looks first at A, then B, then C, then D, and so on, and formulates an opinion. The problem with left brain thinking is that it is segregative, and focuses on parts of the whole and external differences between those parts. It is inherently incapable of seeing the relationship between A, B, C, & D to each other and the relationship of each to the whole. An example of left brain ways of acquiring knowledge would be reading books (sequentially putting words together to form sentences, paragraphs, chapters, etc), doing experiments (moving sequentially from hypothesis to testing of hypothesis to drawing conclusions and generating new hypotheses from that), consulting experts, etc, concerning that which one wishes to know. An example of a right brain way of acquiring knowledge would include going into deep meditation, tapping into the highest parts of the spirit where the divine wisdom resides, and intuiting the knowledge from the highest source. This is then assembled into a big picture, a function that the left brain is incapable of. On a more practical level, the right brain processes things not sequentially, but as a unit. In other words, it processes parts A, B, C, & D simultaneously-as in looking at a photograph or a piece of art- and sees the relationship of the parts to each other and to the whole. Men are predominantly left brained, while women are predominantly right brained.

All expressions of a culture depend on which of the two hemisperes of the brain is dominant in the leaders of that particular culture. Afrikan cultures are predominantly right brained, while the culture of the caucasians is predominantly left brained. Thus, white people engage in segregative type thinking, which explains why racism is so entrenched in their culture--they can only perceive external differences between human beings. They also acquire information about the world by external means: reading books, doing experiments, observing by looking outside of themselves and processing their observations in a segregative, linear sequential fashion. Afrikan peoples on the other hand, have cultivated the ability to tap into the divine part of the spirit and intuit knowledge of the universe and the world in which we live. The important point to note about the Afrikans of Kemet (so called ancient Egyptians) is that they were able to arrive at the correct balance of right and left brain thinking. That explains why they were able to get such a huge headstart in developing the hallmarks of a balanced civilization–spirituality, government, social systems that ensured the well being of all, as well as monument building, temple building, art, writing, math, science, astronomy, medicine, law, etc.

A Brief Definition of Religion

Religion, is derived from the Latin re ("again") + ligare (to tie back to). Thus true religions are those which tie its adherents back to their original source--The Creator (by whatever name one chooses to call It).

Finally, trance and ancestors.

Trance is tough to define in simple terms, but it involves going deep within oneself. This can be done deliberately through meditation. It also happens inadvertently when we day dream, or get hyperemotional and "snap off" and say nasty things to our loved ones, only to "snap out of it" and experience remorse. If you hear of an elite athlete excelling in a game you're watching on tv, you may hear the announcer say so and so is "in the zone." Being "in the zone" is also a form of trance. If you go into black churches and see all the hootin', hollerin' and falling out, again, that is another example of people being in trance. You may be so egrossed in something, e.g., reading a novel, or listening to music, that you tune out the outside world. This is yet another example of being in trance. The point is, going into trance is a very common phenomenon which the Kamau (so called ancient Egyptians) systematically used to develop themselves spiritually as well as to fashion their societies.

The ability to go into trance at will is a characteristic of right brained (Afrikan) cultures, and is something women are much better at than men. It is what determines peoples ability to communicate with their ancestors, properly known as "ancestor communication" (misnomered "ancestor worship.") Cultures that value the ability to go into trance also value their women highly, since as noted above, women are so much better at going into trance than men. That is why in traditional Afrikan societies (including Kamit) women were so clout heavy. We can also see why European cultures devalue women so much: these cultures have no tradition of trance working, placed no value on the ability to go into trance, and hence looked at women as burdensome liabilities to be tolerated and used for procreation only.

Excellent brother your synthetical skills are impressive!


Couple questions.

I've been spending some time going through other materials related to brain function...trying to locate specific exercises to improve right brain function.

Do you have any suggestions?

Also when I first read this sentiment on the european's supposed devaluation of women compared to Africans, at first I went along, but then I wondered, what society today elevates their women more than europeans?

The first female elected African head of state has been in office less than a year while euros have had ruling queens scattered throughout their last 400 years.

Look at how American women dominate on the world scene when it comes to privilege, opportunity, access, etc (compared to women of eastern or african nations).

What women on the planet today are more clout heavy? (with a clout willingly given by their men).

Is this another one of those stolen legacies where the european has hijacked our ancient truths and left us with their poison, or is it that we're evaluating the european with an outdated model, one which they have long since evolved from.

Meditation is an excellent way. It is the visualization aspect of meditation that activates the right side of the brain. Any other type of creative endeavor will also do, e.g., music and the visual arts.

Also when I first read this sentiment on the european's supposed devaluation of women compared to Africans, at first I went along, but then I wondered, what society today elevates their women more than europeans?
European males don’t elevate their women, they oppress and exploit them like they do everybody else. Sexism and paternalism runs rampant among white people in europe and america. One has only to survey the vast corpus of feminist oriented literature produced by white women in the past 30 years or so in order to get an idea of the extent of the problem of how poorly white males have historically treated white females, but that’s another discussion altogether.

The first female elected African head of state has been in office less than a year while euros have had ruling queens scattered throughout their last 400 years.
You’re referring to Ellen Johnson Sirleaf of Liberia, which is not a traditional Afrikan society. Historically and culturally it’s a product of euroamerican cultural imperialism. Its capital, Monrovia, was named after the white US president James Monroe, so that should tell you something about the extent to which alien cultural concepts dominate the cultural landscape there. The notion of “democracy” and holding elections is a white man’s construct that doesn’t even work well for white people. She has no real power, but then again neither does George W Bush. True power in any so called modern democracy lies in the hands of the rich and the super rich, but again, that’s another discussion altogether. By the standards of traditional Afrikan societies, none of the european kings or queens would have been deemed fit to hold any position of authority.
Look at how American women dominate on the world scene when it comes to privilege, opportunity, access, etc (compared to women of eastern or african nations).

What women on the planet today are more clout heavy? (with a clout willingly given by their men).
White men are adept at creating the illusion of power sharing with white women, but they give no real power to anybody but other white men whom they expect to succeed them. This so called privilege, opportunity, clout and access is limited to wealthy white women, and even they are for the most part unfulfilled and miserable, still subject to the sexism and paternalism of their rich white husbands and fathers. The fact that in the 21st century Nancy Pelosi is poised to become the first female speaker of the US House of Representatives in nearly 250 years of this country’s existence speaks volumes about the reality of the powerlessness of white women in what is supposed to be the world’s greatest democracy.

Is this another one of those stolen legacies where the european has hijacked our ancient truths and left us with their poison, or is it that we're evaluating the european with an outdated model, one which they have long since evolved from.
Don’t believe the hype: It’s the former. Today, in 2006, white men still crap all over white women; they just do a good job of hiding it from us. I've personally seen enough of that poor treatment over the past 30+ years.

But we digress....
