    People do not perceive

    People do not perceive primarily with their senses, but with their minds. Psychologist Egon Brunswik and others have shown that people often don't see a thing unless they have some idea of what they are looking for. The reason for this may be biological. In On Intelligence, Jeff Hawkins and Sandra Blakeslee wrote that "for every fiber feeding information forward into the neocortex, there are ten fibers feeding information back toward the senses." Where most people see an undifferentiated mass of green leaves, a bird watcher spots a toucan, three species of parrots, and a humming bird. Since I've been trained in statistics

    What is missing from the above analysis is intent, or what is te intent of ones concept?

    What thought does ones spirit give Birth to or Concieve

    Is it a helper, and healer?

    or is it a consumer, and marauder?

    Is it a builder and creator?

    or is it a dissembler, and destroyer

    Creation and destruction are both necessary, but after 400 years of destruction, how much creation and building is necassary?

    If one sees a person addicted to an opiate, is the solution to browbeat them into change?
    does that technique work?

    Is insanity doing the same thing over and over the same way and expecting different results or success?

    Are there methodoligies that do work?

    How many members of the NOI, from the 50s were on opiates and have recovered?
    to become and their families pillars of the Black community for 50 years,

    what was the technique used?
