"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.”

From Metaphor To Sign-Language To Mythology
Phase One
Unity Consciousness #1068



Mythology is a social philosophy (a component of the social formation of humans). Mythology is the grouping and connecting of pieces of Sign-language in order to tell a cohesive continuous story (chain of thought) from a broader, more collective perspective. Mythology is social because it describes who early humans understood themselves to be in relation to what they understood other aspects of Nature to be. This perspective guided their relationships and ways of living.

Mythology is an utamawazo.
Mythology, for the longest time, was not make-believe. Mythology was based on natural fact because Mythology was based on Sign-language which was metaphors of natural fact.
Sign-language, as used by early humans and all the way up through most of the Egyptian era, was a representation of natural fact. Mythology took all these pieces of natural fact in the form of metaphors and put them into a framework of thought that showed interrelationships and interconnections via storytelling – oral, then written. Mythology was necessary as Sign-language continued to grow into larger numbers of pieces. Mythology is a natural healthy way of keeping track of all the pieces and making sure they all make sense in relation to each other. This is not the case today. Ideologies, philosophies, ways of thinking and historical stories have been disfigured so much, they now collide in impossibility.

No better definition of “Myth” or Mythology could be given than is conveyed by the word “Sem” in Egyptian. This signifies representation on the ground of likeness, similarity, semblance. Mythology, then, is “representation on the ground of likeness,” which led to all the forms of Sign-language. Since Mythology is likeness, Mythology is metaphor. Since Mythology is metaphor, Mythology takes an idea and expresses it using other aspects of Nature. The use of other aspects of Nature to express thought is not to be understood based on the face value of each particular aspect of Nature, rather it is to be understood based on that aspect's deeper inherent qualities and characteristics which further represent Nature's primary, fundamental, primitive laws, powers, forces and processes. Mythology is not about goddesses, gods, animals, trees and insects, rather it is about the deeper level of the formative, fueling and guiding principles of Nature. As the result of humans who understood the fundamental meanings of Sign-language, humans were able to use many different aspects of Nature to convey the same meaning, not randomly, but due to also understanding the characteristics of each aspect of Nature. This really confuses us today, so we balk as we try to sleep walk the daze away. The minuscule amount of variation in the Universe overrides our awareness of the massive amount of sameness. This drastically reduces, to a trickle, our ability to understand, use and interchange metaphors. (AE1 5/15; 532/542) and (AE2 545/9)

Sign-Language Is The Intelligent Logical Use Of Metaphor

Via the evolutionary use of Sign-language in the forming of Mythology, we are able to recognize that not only does Mythology represent metaphor in the form of allegories (parables), so also do the pieces of Sign-language represent metaphor, and are metaphors. The signs, symbols and gestures of Sign-language were imitated and then used as metaphors to represent human thought and then these separate metaphors were combined to tell a story that we call Mythology. Mythology is natural, true, real, actual natural history presented in the form of metaphors which are combined to form allegories. (AE1 10/20; 49/59)

In earlier times, all forms of Sign-language, conveyed the same meaning, whether as gestures, dancing, animals, body painting, letters, words... This is not the case today. (AE1 39/49)

It is worth repeating as many times as necessary that Sign-language is a representation of natural facts. Sign-language is still used today in all forms of communication but is much less understood. When it comes to current-day language communication, we think we got something new when all we got is more of the same under a different name with its natural meanings drained out of it.
