"Free and critical minds can emerge only by a return to the source-the primary sources. A free and critical mind takes nothing for granted and is not intimidated by "authorities" who frequently may be more confused than the general public. Free and critical minds seek truth without chauvinism or shame." - Dr. Asa G. Hilliard III (1)



“One single bit of information, if missing, incomplete, out of order or just plain wrong, has the potential to significantly alter thought processes, conclusions, decisions and behaviors, even when that one single logic entry exists in a sea of accuracy.”

Study Perspectives: Later Stone Age, Upper Paleolithic & Hate Crime Context And So Continues The Meaning Of Life & Existence (Part 5)

Read Part 1 - ”All Ways To Communicate Begin With Definition & Context And So Begins The Meaning Of Life & Existence” (Part 1)

This article adds perspective to the Stone Age in general. It is not comprehensive. After reading the article and some of its links, you should be able to answer:
1. What is the main thing The Stone Age does not always or automatically mean?
2. Who was in the Stone Age and where?
3. How do all humans today still benefit from the Stone Age?
4. What potential impact does awareness of this information have?

Later Stone Age & Upper Paleolithic Period

1. The Later Stone Age sounds primitive, sorta like cave men in an undeveloped civilization. In South Africa, the Later Stone Age began in 42,000 BCE.
2. The Upper Paleolithic Period sounds pretty, sorta like modern humans in a cultural civilization. In Europe, the Upper Paleolithic Period began in 42,000 BCE.
3. Both 1 and 2 are the same thing. They both refer to the same Stone Age and the same modern humans. The only difference is that #1 occurred in Alkebu-lan (Africa) and #2 occurred in Europe. In both places, the people are the same black-skinned people except during the latter portion in Europe when pale skin developed. Even so, black-skinned people remained in Europe and contributed to its development.
4. We assume people in the Upper Paleolithic Period were skilled, and they were. People in the Later Stone Age had the same skills. More than likely they had greater skills because they were closer to the roots of civilization in the Nile Valley from which knowledge flowed into the rest of the world. These modern humans of the Later Stone Age are descendents of those who, in 73,000 BCE, created a stone calendar perfectly aligned with the four directions, two equinoxes and two solstices. This is high level thinking and performance.
5. Even though “Stone Age” is used to refer to Alkebu-lan, at any point in history, people in Alkebu-lan were more advanced or as equally advanced as people anywhere. This holds true at least up until the European colonization of most of the world. It also holds true even during that time and up to today based on all the accomplishments of black-skinned descendents in face of significant and continuous disruption and obstacles from birth to death. The list would fill many books because most people are themselves examples whose accomplishments are played out on small, private stages, each worthy of their own pages. Anyone who can rise in a foreign system of food, medicine, education, religion, laws, governing structure, community structure, customs and lack of overall nutrition plus, manage without the fullness of inherent rights and the inheritances of land-based resources and still accomplish the same or more as those whom the system reflects and protects, must only be a stone's throw away from greater things...and as vibrations replicate, so does the meaning of life and existence.
6. In 1937 CE, Professor James Breasted said:
(a) “nowhere else on earth” was there in history another civilization as which the indigenous Africans of Egypt created equaled;
(b) the height of greatness that was Egypt and her African inhabitants have never been reached by others, including European-Americans;
(c) nowhere else in the entire world were the structures built by the Egyptians equaled, which included Greece and Rome;
(d) the zenith of Egypt's magnificent splendor was not isolated, but plentiful among the Africans all along the Nile Valley [4,132 miles];
(e) Europeans and European-Americans (“Caucasians, Semites,” etc.), the “Western World,” including the ancient Greeks and Romans, absorbed their beginnings from these original indigenous Ethiopians, Africans of Egypt - the so-called “Negroes;”
(f) and, that the “legacy” of Egypt is an African heritage which Europeans and European-Americans must try to capture, which they have done, or trying to accomplish, by means of injecting the terms “Semitic, Hamitic and Caucasian” where Black or Ethiopian should have appeared. (A)
7. Remember, all that Kemet (Egypt) was, is due to the Stone Age accomplishments of their long line of predecessors. Some have been mentioned in earlier parts of this series and others will be mentioned later.
8. Truth is, first and foremost in Alkebu-lan and all over the world, in the hands of these Stone Age people, stone itself was taken to new levels of construction, architecture, engineering, technology, mathematics, art, spirituality, education, culture and civilization. Everything they did was all-inclusive, holistic, harmonic and inseparable from anything else, thus inseparable from themselves. This is what is to be remembered about the Stone Age. It is 200% different from what is taking place in societies of late that stiflingly dominate the popular worldview causing evolution to stagnate. This is why the only ones to exceed or equal Kemet since Kemet's heyday are those societies who honor and emulate Kemet and its ancestor civilizations.
9. Kemet and all its marvels are but a fraction of the capabilities of these Stone Age humans. Yet there are more examples. Technically, some are not in The Later Stone Age (B) but based on what has been accomplished, it is certainly the same, based on skill and magnificence of these earlier and more recent stoneworks:
(a) Less than 1,000 years ago, in the 12th century, 11 churches were carved out of stone ( C);
(b) A stone calendar was erected along with approximately 100,000 other structures and roads dating back to 73,000 BCE;
( c) In 6,000 BCE in Kemet, stone houses were built with granite cement floors and crushed fragments of decomposed granite mixed with lime. Today, we think it's top-notch to have granite countertops (D);
(d) The Great Zimbabwe in Zimbabwe, Alkebu-lan was a city-state metropolis. It was a massive stone complex built mostly in the 12th century CE. There are numerous ancient sites similar to the Great Zimbabwe scattered throughout Zimbabwe and Mozambique. (E)

Conclusion

When I express to someone how I want to live more naturally like in earlier times, they quickly remark negatively about not wanting to go back to The Stone Ages. This immediate Lisa-esque “clean living ain't the life me!” reaction is similar to the mind jerk reaction when historical facts are stated. Perhaps all of us would be quicker to consider possibilities and slower to habits that hinder possibilities if we were simply aware, The Stone Age “rocks!”

Notes:
(A) Ben-Jochannan, Yosef, Africa: Mother of Western Civilization (Black Classic Press: 1988), pp. 550-551.
(B) There are a lot of words used to describe historical people, places and periods that are arbitrary. This is designed to divide, separate and segregate history in order to do the same with the truth. Also, readers will encounter different dates for the same thing and additional inconsistencies due to original names and spellings and original geographic boundaries that have more than likely been changed, sometimes several times.
Those striving for personal development should not be discouraged from studying any topic. Use your spiritual sensing ability and stay focused on the most important thing and overall meanings rather than getting entangled in details.
( C) Please notice, these churches are “World Heritage Sites” just as many sites built by black-skinned people. World Heritage Sites indicate acknowledgment of significance and historical value. UNESCO says the “sites must be of outstanding universal value.” Yet, everything else about these people and their cultures associated with this and other sites built by original people (black-skinned) is not taught and honored as a matter of fact, especially in school textbooks, religious bibles, movies and television. In fact, nearly everything about the people and the cultures who built things of universal value, is marginalized, minimized or vilified – this is an ongoing hate crime against humanity.
