    TREE OF LIFE

    The greatest error that can be made at this point is to interpret this diagram as an arbitrarily created conceptual or theoretical explanation of the ordering system underlying physical reality. It represents the nine emanations [note: spheres 0 and 10 represent different realities outside of the nine emanations discussed here --editor] that are the shaping factors of all physical structures and events. They underlie, direct, and integrate all physical realities, from the subtlest sub-electronic forces, to the complex galaxies, to the organ systems making up the physical body of Man.... from the most primitive instinct of a slime mold to the most divine manifestation of the spirit of Man. They are what the Kamitians call the Neteru; Yorubas call the Orishas, and Westerners have translated as dieties, Archangels, angels, etc.

    It is very important to understand, that contrary to popular opinion, cosmology does not attempt to explain how physical things, on the atomic and molecular levels, come into being. It concentrates on the coming into being of the metaphysical factors that will function as the vehicles through which the physical things will come into existence, as well as the means of regulating their structural and functional components, hence external behavior. In other words, a cosmogony deals with the "generation" (from "gonus") of a “system”. Properly understood, the terms "System" and "Cosmos" are synonymous; an assemblage, or combination of things or parts, working in unity, as a whole, cooperating to carry out the same function, to achieve the same goal, etc.

    It was said that the emanations, one to nine, are parts of a “system” through which Subjective Being, represented by zero (the absence of things, but not of Being) creates and administrates physical reality; “10”. These nine “DEITIES” – the PAUT NETERU – compose the “organs systems” making up the spiritual bodies of all physical things. They link them with their source of being and subsistence, and direct their functions. African religion, better comprehended as a Way of Life, is based on the understanding of the functioning of these nine metaphysical vessels of creation and administration. As they are shaping and governing functions, their activities carry the force of law.

    For example, you wouldn’t attempt to feed on hay because the functions that govern your digestive mechanism can't digest it. It is in this manner that the attributes of the Deities (Neteru, Orishas, etc.) represent the laws governing our lives on Earth. Observance of these laws allows them to fully bring forth their powers through our being. According to our chronological age, state of health, and level of spiritual development, the manifestation of these “powers” will range from our basest urges, to the commonly evolved “mental abilities”, to the psychical abilities held by a few, to the attainment of divine perfection, i.e., Man-Godhood on Earth.

    TREE OF LIFE



    My brother friend hiphopolx,

    The Title got me, for real...just one question, only: Can/should these carefully designed explanations be attributed to the biblical Tree of Life?

    WRONG ANSWER!


    No the "biblical" tree of life is attributed to the REAL TREE OF LIFE. The bible like most things in these in this world are "off takes" from something else.

    Try moving past the title.

    I'm wondering isn't your signature tired of "shuckin' and jivin'". One must be careful of what they sign off on, it could be a reflection.

    Are you a moderator now?

    Your question is rhetorical too bad you can't see it, and if you're shuckin' and jivin' how am i harassing you. Walk lightly? i live with a bullseye on my back. I noticed how you avoided the basic intent of your question. You make no mentioned of that, instead you see what you always see' shuckin' and jivin'.

    This thread is about the tree of life. Instead you come with nonsense speaking of how this was attributed to the bible and then expect the shuckin' and jivin' to not be challenged.

    Everything we type falls under scrutiny. Too bad we all can't live your life. Coger in Wonderland.

    Final Warning, hellogood...you are calling me a moderator by asking a very silly question(anyone can see my colors are not Red, except you). Address me by my name hellogood not as a moderator, or by my signature. And then you say this: "if you're shuckin' and jivin' how am i harassing you," you just harass and called me out of my name, hellogood...and you just called me out of charater, disrespectfully.

    Continue with this madness, and a real moderator will be reading my complaint.
