"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.”

Never Drink While Drowning

by Ancestors through Usiku

We journeyed in vessels powered by three currents
Transforming genetic potential was insurance
At our destinations we continued civilization
Created, ate, drank and was merry
Somewhere between then and now
After a long, healthy, prosperous ride
Higher things were logically set aside
For the finer things empires provide
Power was abused for the wealth it brings
Knowledge of self was not one of those things
One by one, understandings left as they came - on wings
Even as waves splashed in our faces
Which should have served to awaken us
Instead we came to prefer the salty taste
Simply put, we drowned our sense of balance
Steered right into our greatest challenge
Ignoring emergence, inviting crisis
Based on what logic said was good
We chose manifestations of the weaker twin within
And called them isfet, ego, evil and vices
Gave our powers to contexts of suboptimal ways
And were overcome by self-made, slow motion waves
Slid drifted into drowning after safely landing
Without optimal connections for grounding
Masses been working but relatively few been rising
In understandings, is not surprising
And though the spiritual fruit of our labors cannot sustain
We keep right on creating, eating, drinking and being merry
As if being upgraded from treading water to flotsam
Is enough to teach children how to reach the upside of fundamental change
