    As I read the many posts on this forum, I’m a little confused about who the members of this forum view as the enemy to Black folks. I believe all people on this planet are caught up in a war that begins in the womb before conception.

    As you may know, before conception, millions of sperms are ejected into the womb, and under normal circumstances only one of the sperm, from the millions ejected into the womb, will reach the egg for fertilization. Now when the millions of sperms are ejected into the womb, they are immediately set upon by the chemistry of the female body as hostile invaders that must be destroyed. This chemistry begins to destroy the invading sperms as each sperm attempts to get to the safety of the egg. The chemistry of the female body became the enemy of each sperm. The female body attempts to keep the sperms from reaching the their objective – the egg.

    Finally after one of the sperms reach the egg and is accepted by the egg, the door of safety is closed to all other sperms still struggling to make it. They are destroyed and become food for the female body.

    At this time, the sperm that made it to the egg is safer than before, but its struggle for survival in the womb is still not over because the female body will still continue to try to destroy it by aborting. The female body remains an enemy; trying to destroy the very life it is producing until such time as that life leaves the womb and enters the world outside the female body.

    You are that life that fought all the odds, and fought all the enemies the female body could throw at you. You overcame odds of a billion to one in order to survive the journey from your father’s loins up through your mother’s womb, and withstood the attacks your mother’s body threw at you for nine months.

    You went through all of that and survived. Nothing in life will ever be as difficult or have such odds against you as what you went through to get here. Any problem you may have while in this life is nothing compared to what you went through to get here. Millions of the other sperms (your brothers and sisters) didn’t make it. That’s the reality of nature.

    What does that journey teach? It teaches that self-preservation is first and foremost with nature. Your survival was the utmost importance in order to reach the egg first – in order to survive.

    Nature is nature – it does not change. What was natural on your initial journey through your mother’s body is just as natural in your journey now that you are outside of your mother’s body. You merely came from one womb and entered into another womb. Most everything else is the same. The one primary difference is that you can now assist others in their survival and use others to assist you in your survival, whereas while traveling to the egg you could not help any of the other sperms and they could not help you.

    However, just as when you were a sperm and you were ejected into a hostile environment, so to is it when you left your mother’s body you were ejected into a hostile environment – and that is the environment you live in today.

    Why is it that Africans have not united? It is because there is no such thing as Africans. That is a myth – a misrepresentation. True, there is such a thing as people being born on a continent named Africa, and therefore, those born there may be referred to as Africans, but that is the extent of it. That is not you, that is the landmass of your birth, not you.

    If you came from Mississippi, does that make you a Mississippian? And what would a Mississippian be. No, it would just mean you were born in Mississippi.

    Your thoughts and your actions determine who you are, the place of your origin does not. If you and I have the same general way of thinking, the same goals and objectives, similar desires, etc. then we would be family. We would be tied together as a family by the things we have in common – our thoughts and desires. That is how tribes and nations are formed. Tribes and nations are formed by individuals having common grounds on which to base their unity; and when there is no longer enough common ground to support the union of those people, a power struggles erupts and soon the tribe or nation is destroyed. This is what you see happening all over the world today. It has nothing to do with genetics.

    History has shown that race is not enough grounds to unite. History has shown that religion is not enough grounds to unite. History has shown that being from the same landmass is not enough grounds to unite. Race and religion, and even landmass, can be contributing factors, but in and of themselves, they are not enough.

    I am a Black man, but I know that all Black people are not my friend. I also know all “white” people are not my enemy. I know there are some Black people who would not want me to have the right of “free speech”. I know there are Black people who would not want me to be free to make my own choices. I know there are Black people who would attempt to put limits on me and not allow me to be all that I can be. I do not consider those people to be my family – I consider those people to be my enemy.

    It is easy to define and identify your enemy; it is more difficult to identify your friends. But, at least if you have identified your enemy, you stand a much better chance to survive and achieve your goals.

    How do I identify my enemies? My enemy is anyone who attempts to take away my rights and freedom, or attempts to prevent me from being free. By free, I mean having the freedom to do as I choose as long as I don’t infringe upon the rights and freedom of others. It doesn’t matter their race, religion, gender, nationality, etc. If there is no victim, then there is no crime – there should be no such thing as a victimless crime.

    I hear so much hate directed towards certain groups of people as if that hate will solve anything. I am not about hating any people (and that includes “white” folks) regardless of what their group history is. I am, however, about the destruction of my enemies and being free.

    And whom do I consider family and friends? Anyone who helps me get and/or keep the aforementioned rights and freedom. It’s really that simple.

    In order to survive and achieve, one must get together with like-minded individuals and form a group, then form coalitions with similar like-minded groups.

    I am currently looking for other individuals who want to be free, but remember, you cannot be free if you don’t want others to be free.

    It’s not about race, discrimination, bad words, etc. - It’s all about freedom, everything else is just distractions. You are either free or you are not.

    I welcome other views on this – tell me what you think.

    Know the truth, then act on that truth, and the truth shall make you free.

    Liberation begins at home.

    I'll be free, I'll be free,
    And none shall deny,
    With fetters and chains,
    This spirit of mine.......
    By any means necessary

    Peace, Blessings

    Excellent Thread

    This is an excellent thread bro and worthy of some serious discussion.

    I agree with a few of your points though I don't agree a healthy fetus in a healthy womb of a loving mother experiences a hostile environment.

    But that is a digression.

    Your main point implies we are all essentially the same having been born against great odds, and as long as an individual is inclined to offer and protect YOUR freedom then you're ok with that individual.

    I have to disagree there, because that outlook is too narrowly focused on the individual and ignores the reality of ethnicity, blood, kinship & family.

    By your logic, someone like Clarence Thomas is perfectly justified in joining ranks with neo-conservative forces because those forces do guarantee HE HIMSELF gains access to privileges and "freedoms" in exchange for his going along with the program.

    I'm sure not only him, but his immediate family benefits from his actions.

    So in a completely individualized, "as long as I get my freedom, I'm down with anyone" framework Clarence Thomas is 100% a quintessential shining example of where it ends.

    Also you asserted that religion and race and kinship and land aren't enough to unite people but I suggest history doesn't agree.

    The ruling powers of MOST nations on the planet are indeed glued together by some combination of these factors. I challenge you to name one (of world significance) that isn't.

    I think you've got it flipped upside-down.

    Ideologies and philosophies are transient and subject to evolution as people make their way through life.

    Blood is not.

    I could fall out with my mother or father or sister over a philosophical disagreement but at the end of day we are bound with a tie that is much stronger than any difference of opinion.

    So its the Ideologies and philosophies that are not enough to unite people...you need something stronger.

    You need something strong enough for you to see ms. cotton sentenced to 7 years prison for a trivial act and not only react but ACT on it as IF it were YOUR daughter or YOUR sister...regardless of whether she thinks as you think or knows what you know.

    Something powerful enough to make you give up singular concern for YOUR freedom and recognize YOUR freedom long-term is DEPENDENT upon, INTERWOVEN with, and CONNECTED to the strength and cohesiveness of YOUR people, whoever you've defined them to be.

    So I think this technique of DEFINING one's people as whoever thinks and acts like them is getting near THE VERY ROOT of the degradation of the black race in this country the last 40 years.

    IMO, tt has been the key tool used by the middle class to assuage its guilt at having abandoned the race....we just defined ourselves a new one....we black people, they "n!ggaz"

    Your other points about all black people not being friends and all white people not being enemies I agree with, however in my experience bonafide black enemies and bonafide white friends are exceptions, not norms.

    Our most important enemy IS internal, and it is our own inability to come to grips with lifting each other up.

    But make no mistake about it, this is not alice in wonderland, there is a united and well armed group of people who have long ago decided their very survival requires our subjugation. THAT enemy requires confrontation on all levels.

    Excellent thread though Taaa7.:welldone: and I look forward to reading the responses.

    Shalom Brother Kemetkind,

    Thanks for your thoughtfull response.


    Many loving mothers have had miscarriages. Miscarriages are the body’s attempt at the destruction of the fetus. The survival of the new life is not up to the mother, it is up to the fight in the new life being conceived. Also, once that new life has left the mother’s womb and entered into this world outside of its mother’s body, his/her life is determined by how much fight he/she has. Take this another step further and you can clearly see that if a group of individuals is to advance and achieve, it is up to the fight in each individual and not in the hands of some so-called leader. If each individual Black person used the same strength he/she used to bring himself/herself through the struggle of birth, Black folks would have never been in the situation we find them in today; and/or if somehow they did find themselves in the condition they are in today, they would have no problem in liberating themselves now – immediately. They would not wait for anyone to lead them.

    I’m really glad you brought out that point; it gives me an opportunity to expound on it. First of all, you used the word “offer” – I did not use that word - I used the word "get". No one can “offer” you freedom – freedom is something you take. If freedom is offered, then it’s not freedom – it’s a controlled false sense of freedom – he who giveth can taketh away – the giver is still in control. When you take freedom, you are in control.

    Understand that you come into this world as an individual and you leave this world as an individual. First comes the individual; then comes the group. Everything – and I mean everything – we do, we do from a selfish individual motivation. Let me explain. The word “self” = a person’s nature or character; personal interest. The suffix “ish” = of, being, pertaining to. Therefore, we have “selfish” = “pertaining to self”. If one chooses to give up one’s life for the group, that decision is self-motivated. Everything we do is self-motivated.

    Of course many things come into play to determine our self-motivation. Take what you mentioned above for instance – ethnicity, blood, kinship, and family. All of those are emotional ties – not necessarily survival ties. Even though it can make life better and more pleasing if those are tied into assisting you in survival, many times they can be detrimental to your survival. Survival is not an emotional based adventure.


    Lets look at it a little deeper. From what I can see, Clarence Thomas aligned himself with a group that he evidently has no problem with. A group that is like-minded with his way of thinking. He most likely does not see things the way you or I do, therefore why would he align himself with us? Since I don’t know what his motivation was/is, but you have to admit, for now, his group is more capable of survival, and therefore, he is more capable of survival than we are. And, as you stated, I’m sure many of the people he cares about receive a certain amount of survival assurances from his membership in the group.

    See that’s what its all about – survival. We cannot get mad at, or blame anyone for doing what he/she deems necessary in order to survive. We can only shore up our own survival by aligning ourselves with enough like-minded individuals and become strong enough as a group to insure our individual survival and the survival of those we care about. That is what makes the group more important than the individual – the fact that the group insures the survival of the individuals in the group. Together we stand, divided we fall sort of thing. All for one and one for all. However, this can best be gotten by a group with like-minded individuals.


    Check your history. If religion was enough to unite people, the 1.5 billion Muslims would be united instead of fighting each other; and outside forces, such as the United States, could not divide them – but since Muslims are not all like-minded we have what you see today. If race, land, or kinship were enough to unite people, all of Africa would be united today. However, since all Africans are not like-minded – we have what you see today.

    The United States was not formed because of religion, land, or kinship; it was formed because of like-minded individuals wanting the same thing – freedom from the king and laws of Great Britain. Unlike most Black folks, they were willing to do whatever necessary to accomplish their goal – including killing 42 million Natives. And then they were willing to do whatever necessary to build the nation they had formed - including enslaving a nation of people. Say what you want about “white” folks, but they understand the primary natural law of nature - and that is survival. “White” folks have survived by planning and doing what was necessary to survive. “Black” folks have survived by accident and by reproducing in large numbers.


    True, and that is why people rise and fall.

    Blood can be used as a tool, such as in ruling through bloodlines, but even then it only works if those of a certain bloodline can get enough like-minded individuals to go along with the program, and get others outside of their group to go for it. Like the Queen of England, for example, is only in that position because of her bloodline and the people of England choose to go along with the program. Subjects of a ruler are subjects because they relinguish their power to the ruler. And in reality, blood has nothing to do with it.

    We are not talking about philosophies or ideas here; we are talking about survival. As a family, you and your sister, at one time, depended on your mother and father for survival – it did not matter what you thought; you were under their rule and totally dependent on them. But you were of no value to their survival. No matter how much they loved you and you loved them, as a child, you were of no value to their physical survival.

    No matter how strong the bond, the slave could not prevent the master from mistreating, separating, or killing the family. By being torn away from a collective of like-minded individuals, the slave lost the ability to protect the family's survival.

    If you and I were locked in a gage and we had the same desire to be free from that gage (like-minded), that would be enough for us to work together in attaining that freedom. Our religion, race, philosophies, etc. would not matter - even if we did not like each other, that would not matter. The only thing that would matter is that I could help you and you could help me, and together we could get out of the gage. That's all that would matter. We would be like-minded as far as our condition in the gage was concerned. On the other hand, if there was a third party in the gage with us who did not want to get out - we would not include him/her in our group/plan; and we would leave him/her there in the gage.


    However, if Ms. Cotton had aligned herself with a group that had aligned itself with other groups to form a strong enough coalition to prevent others from taking her freedom, things like that would not happen. We are singling out Ms. Cotton, but that applies to everyone. Look how many Black men and women are incarcerated due to victimless crimes involving drugs. As many Black folks as there are in the world and they have not formed a strong enough alliance with each other to prevent such things from happening to them. Survival in this world is more than just staying alive – it’s also about quality.

    That statement is absolutely TRUE. I stated in my original post that “in order for you to be free, others must be free”. It’s a give and take situation. You must work to maintain the freedom of your comrades and they must work to maintain your freedom. One for all, and all for one. That’s what I mean by like-minds. In this case the security of freedom, and being free, would be the bond that unites.


    I would like for you to explain that statement a little more in depth. Explain what degradation you’re talking about and how it is impacted by this technique.

    Even if that statement was true, tell me what would you have them do instead? Would it not be the “n!ggaz” place to look at the middle class and emulate what the middle class did if the “n!ggaz” wanted what the middle class has? It’s easy to sit back and criticize what others have done to get what they got, but instead, one should find a way to get what one wants. If wealth is what one wants, one should be willing to what it takes to have it. If a safe neighborhood is what one wants, one should be willing to do whatever is necessary to get it. Whatever it is that one wants, one should be willing to do whatever it takes to obtain/attain it. That is the difference between the haves and the have-nots. One is willing; the other is not. People don’t like to blame the victim, but it’s the victim who decides whether or not to remain a victim. For example: If a woman marries a man who beats her, she is only a victim the first time it happens because she didn’t know better; but if she continues to stay with that man and get beatings, it’s her fault, her choice. I then no longer look at her as a victim. The same applies to Black folks. I no longer look at Black folks as victims. They make their choice not to change things; they make their choice to accept less than equal treatment; they make their choice not to do for self; etc.

    Everyone has his/her own experiences. I have had good and bad experiences with both Black and “white”, but I have never had a terrible experience with either. I have, however, had more “white” people do more things for me than I have received from Black people. So from my personal experience, I have learned to discard race when it comes to judging an individual. As a group of people, both Black and “white” history speaks for itself. Both sides of the coin must be examined.

    I agree 100%.

    True that, but remember, it’s not what others decide or do; it’s what you decide and do.

    Thank you, I truly appreciated your thought provoking response. I look forward to sharing thoughts with you in the future.

    Know the truth, then act on that truth, and the truth shall make you free.

    Liberation begins at home.

    I'll be free, I'll be free,
    And none shall deny,

    QUOTE]


    There is no confusion regarding who the enemy to Black People are. The enemy is any force, external or internal that is against the life and living process of Black people based upon them/Us being Black. In this present day and time due to the concept of "white supremacy" being spread throughout the world, it is obviously any and everyone who adheres to that thought process consciously or subconsciously.


    Very well said and true, with one exception..."CONSCIOUSNESS". Whatever that natural nature process was for us to get here is insignificant and meaningless in a world where "consciousness is the determining factor". It is this consciousness that allows us to experience and give meaning to the life process called "living, pain, happiness, love, hate and every other human ordeal.

    History has shown that "IT IS ABOUT GENETICS". Make no mistake about that at all !!!! Genetically the gene of what we now define as African People is the most unique gene on the planet. It is the gene of "origin from which all others came". "It is the gene capable of producing all others while no others can produce us". This gene originated in triple darkness and manifested in triple darkness with all the components and abilities of the triple darkness that that allowed the manifestation of that into light.

    It furthermore manifested in an "ENVIRONMENT BEST SUITED FOR IT'S SURVIVAL AND GROWTH. This environment was and is still the "RICHEST PART OF THE EARTH". This of course could not be an accident. If so, then we would be naive to believe that the "richest gene on the earth would coincidentally manifest in origin from the richest part of the earth by accident". Don't ask me to believe that. Now based upon the fact of where this "ORIGIN GENE manifested itself", we are African. We are African because "AFRICA IS A CONSCIOUS REALITY AND REALIZATION OF CONSCIOUSNESS". As such, we as humans must identify with the conscious not the unconscious that you so eloquently wrote about in our journey to get here.




    The reason that history does not record what you mentioned is because "never in history has the African been under the type of attack that we presently are under on a global basis. As such, you have no precedent upon which to make such an assessment to lead you to the conclusion you've put forth.


    Your thoughts regarding your statement carry weight...not because they represent "actual reality" but a distorted reality that has been imposed upon our people and the world for over 2500 years. This understanding alone should allow you to see that this has and is a long war that we have been in and presently are in. As such, your enemy today will look like you and not like you. The battle has always been for "control of the mind" regardless of color. However, the origin and source of the battle came and comes from a mind and physical entity that does not look as we do....it simply "infected those who look as we do", therefore producing an un-natural and artificial host of the "original source that we know as OUR ENEMY".

    Freedom is again, "a conscious definition created by humans". As such, from a cultural perspective, every group of people define their own perspective of freedom. Absolute freedom does not exist anywhere on earth. Even in nature there are laws which must be followed or a consequence to pay for not doing so. Humans create laws to govern themselves and their behavior as groups and nations. I think we should be allowed the freedom to run around with no clothes on. I'm not hurting anyone at all but there are thought processes around me that would consider that to be offensive to them. Do I fight to defend my right to run around naked or do I conform to their thought process?

    After all, who made them think that my running around in the natural condition I was born in was offensive? That's their thought process, not mines. So am I imposing on their freedom or are they imposing on mines? Are they now my enemies because they are against my wanting to run around in a natural condition? Yes they are from my perspective...because they are stopping me from being "my version of free". Do you get the point?


    It’s not about race, discrimination, bad words, etc. - It’s all about freedom, everything else is just distractions. You are either free or you are not.

    I welcome other views on this – tell me what you think.

    Know the truth, then act on that truth, and the truth shall make you free.

    Liberation begins at home.

    I'll be free, I'll be free,

    Shalom Brother Keita,

    Thanks for your input. I always find your posts to be thought out and interesting.

    I agree with your statement here, but it doesn’t go far enough. The war has always been going on since as far back as history has been recorded; “white supremacy” simply made it easier to identify and focus on a target by using skin shade as a dividing element. That allowed certain groups to single out an “enemy” have a common reference of unity.



    The same process that was with you at conception is always with you. It is that process that heals the body when it is sick. It is that same process that will shut the mind down when the pain is more than it can handle. It is that same process that keeps every aspect of your body functioning. Consciousness is just an extension of that process and has been with you always. One might compare consciousness to a periscope of a submarine - the “natural nature process” being the submarine, and consciousness being the periscope. The submarine can extend or retract its periscope as needed – so too can the process extend or retract its consciousness as needed. To say the process is “insignificant” or “meaningless” is a gross understatement and a totally false assumption.

    Those two paragraphs contain both truths and untruths. True, the original gene was very unique in as it was to produce all others. True, it was manifested in the “best” part of the earth. That is where it stops. You are no more “African” than you are your mother’s womb. If you have any brothers and/or sisters, you know that you and your siblings are not the same. Being produced in the same womb (Africa) does not make you the same. If your siblings have children, their children are not like you – and on and on. I have brothers and sisters who are lighter and darker than I am, and who think totally different than I think - that makes us different. To attempt to clump everybody together just because of melanin just isn’t feasible. Melanin is something they may have in common, but that does not take away the individuality – hence, the many separate tribes with the same genetic make-up and the same melanin content. People gather in groups (nations, tribes, organizations, clicks, etc.) because of what the group has to offer; and generally it’s with people having similar views – not because of genetics, or melanin. Why do so many Black people find that so difficult to understand? History has never shown it’s about genetics.

    You can’t be serious with that paragraph. Global is only as broad as you knowledge allows. The natives of the Americas were facing extinction more so than Africans are facing extinction today, and yet race and the threat of extinction was not enough to cause them to unite. So, I’ll just dismiss what you said in that paragraph.

    I agree with you that the battle has always been about control of the mind, but that battle has existed as far back as you can go in history. The Europeans did not create that battle; that battle was waged long before the Europeans came into existence. Rulers do not become rulers without controlling (swaying) enough minds. Militaries have always been about mind control – thus the phrase, “yours is not to question why, yours is to do or die”. You’re giving the Europeans more credit than they have coming. I agree, however, with the point I think you were trying to make.

    I am in agreement with your point there. Of course, that’s where like-mind ness comes into play. That’s why I believe in separate, but equal.


    Know the truth, then act on that truth, and the truth shall make you free.

    Liberation begins at home.

    I'll be free, I'll be free,
    And none shall deny,
    With fetters and chains,
    This spirit of mine.......

    Taay----- I want you to know that I think you have powerful ideas!!!

    I recognize that and I'm sure that others feel the same way because I've met other people who are able to fully grasp the powerful points you're making here. If, however, you ever get frustrated, just remember that you are before your time insofar as the bulk of black people are concerned. At least, I believe this.

    I agree so totally that IF some of us are going to survive, we MUST get out of the sappy mode that so many black folks are in--and get into SURVIVAL mode because with our current mindset, there is a high probability that we won't survive another few hundred years. The world is really moving too fast for blacks as a group. We're not keeping up at all. Every day puts us so much farther behind other groups.

    I see black people--wherever we are--as vegetables in a garden that Europeans and Asians feed off of whenever they're hungry. They need us for their survival at this point because we produce for them--creativity, cheap labor, natural resources, grunts for their armed services, etc.. Soon another large group--the Hispanics--will be feeding off us in a big way because many of them are rushing to ally themselves with whites. Also, we can see the move already being made to start harvesting the organs of black prisoners--some of whom are willing to trade an organ, like a kidney, to get out of prison sooner. We can react in horror and call white folks names, but that won't stop them because words don't stop people from feeding off you--if they can, and they can.

    Folks keep talking about our melanin and Africa as if the melanin and Africa are powerful weapons. They're not!! Many black folks, in the Diaspora, don't even like melanin or Africa, and we don't have nearly enough time left to re-train their minds. Time is running out for black folks.

    It's like we're in a burning house and we're all screaming that we've got to get everybody out of the house BEFORE any of us leave that house. :spinn: It's been clear to me for a long time that we're going to have to leave a lot of us in the house, and I may be one of them left behind--because at the very last second, even I, might decide I can't leave. So the question is how many of us would be or are able to leave the house? I personally don't think many black people are at that point.

    To specifically address a few of your points:

    1. That African gene? Everybody has it because ALL life began in Africa according to black and white scholars and scientists. Everybody is an African. Some people left and some people stayed.

    2. I agree totally that people tend to gather with others who have similar views and they MUST do that in order to advance. It doesn't necessarily have to do with genetics or melanin. Genetics is actually a fallacy anyway, because there is major genetic sameness worldwide. The only reason I've argued melanin at all on this board is because some people emphasize it when it benefits them, but discard it when it doesn't. :spinn: That can be a good or bad thing, but I digress.

    Even various tribes/ethnic, countries, religious denominations, etc. have split off from the rest for that reason and have done that throughout history. Other than that, their energy will be consumed by the infighting between different mindsets. They will not advance.

    3. I think that a typical black person on this board or anywhere else gives the europeans WAY to much credit, IMO. Many apparently can't see that their success over us is highly dependent on us. Post-slavery, we need to give ourselves credit for much of their success--not them.

    4. We need new ideas and we need the right ideas. The right idea is more powerful than guns or money. Your ideas are truly revolutionary!! The europeans came up with one idea that catalpulted them to where they are: racism/white supremacy. I think your idea re survival is simple, powerful, and necessary and SOME people are ready for it.

    The Quandary of the Indivisible/Duality

    What stands out for me is to properly define your enemy which runs tandem with knowing what/who one is. With that in mind, the process of running into like minds, and the circumstances that surround those like minds, will provide the impetus to validate or negate ones self diagnosis. (Build and destroy)

    Encountering unique personalities is exciting and educational but actually a series of advertisements facilitating the process of engendering the community of self. (Get in where you fit in)

    I made a choice to fashion (per-form) my per-sona via the Paut Neteru and generally take on a lifestyle that is in alignment (In similitude) with various other psycho/spiritual systems. I don't run into many whites or blacks who are seriously considering this undertaking but the few who I immediatly feel connected with happen to be considerably melanated. Inductively, I surmised
    melanated people thrive "Collectively" in an atmosphere where fundemental (Kamitic) principles are observed and enforced. Whites, and those who are predisposed to their inchoat machinations (cognitions), seem to thrive in a predominately mechanistic / materialist atmosphere as the sis pointed out (in detail) in the book "Yurugu".
