Today you are the 2nd Noah. Our Creator has provided you with instructions to build a vessel that will transport your chosen group of the most intelligent people out of a dangerous situation and into a new world. The world as we know it, will be gone- and you and your chosen group will have to rebuild society. Just for discussion sake, please explain who would you choose and why? This discussion might help us understand a realistic measure of intelligence, and what types of people we truly value in our communities. For my ship, I would choose Brothas and Sistahs who are in very loving, devoted and committed relationships. I would choose those of that group who have the most children, and those who have no children. The Brothas I choose would all have a skill related to natural engineering; farming, building etc., - strong Warrior types, strong analytical thinkers and those grounded in African spiritual traditions or their own spirituality conductive with the Earth’s harmony. The Sistahs I will chose will be strong Warriors and Mothers to the Earth, scientific thinkers, healers with knowledge of herbs or natural medicines. All the Sistahs would be grounded spiritually within their own intuition. I would choose this group because in my opinion very intelligent Black people always gravitate towards a higher duty or service and cultivate themselves in such a way on purpose so that their intelligence can be used. Those who I have described here are people that have impacted my life in that way. These are people I cannot live without, and I cannot see building a new society without them. For me, one of the first signs of intelligence, is ones ability to recognize intelligence in others. How do you measure intelligence? Who is on your list? Who gets to ride in your Ship into a new era? - Hotep Fam!
