Egghead Jr.

Experts in the Field

We used to be with a woman whom I thought would make an excellent Earth, only to discover our persons to be totally wrong. She suffered from a high-function mental disorder which was not easy to detect at first, because she said a lot of the things we embrace. She spoke against the same things we had issues with. She belonged to a Black activist group that my person highly respected. She was well-versed on several topics. She seemed to be the perfect match for my travels. My persons was convinced that she was going in the same direction, but we were wrong.I will not disgrace her by mentioning her name. That would be inappropriate and besides, subconsciously she does not mean to be so counter productive to our cause. She is very ill and ultimately saw herself to be a failure. The things she mentioned seemed easy to repair at first, given the proper attitude, desire and skill. These things cannot come without want and you cannot give people your skills or your attributes. We learned this through experience. My only regret is that we hadn't found that out sooner.

Mental illness, of this caliber, is not that easy to detect. Most of the time, you hardly suspect it because these people are funny and talented people. My woman was very smart. Witty beyond reproach. She was informed in a lot of areas. Fun to talk to. It is easier to recognize a broken arm, than a broken soul or mind state. Highly-functional mental illness usually occurs amongst highly intellectual types. It wasn't until we lived together, did we began to see her mood swings, and her depressed moments. I began to see that she was a woman who was plagued by inner demons and that her outlook was not the same as mine. She felt trapped and we thought we could rescue her. Become the hero. We didn't do it out of ego, we did it out of love, but the non-acceptance that it was hopeless, was male ego related.We tried to work on that but we began to find out that she was just as witty at maintaining her own debilitating attitude. FOR EVERY REASON I GAVE ON HOW SHE COULD BE SUCCESSFUL, SHE GAVE ME SIX ON HOW SHE COULD FAIL. The more my persons fought to uplift her, the more she found fault with it. She fought to prove me wrong about her praise. If I did things for her, it would be the things which were lacking in the approach that she would focus on. Yet, I wouldn't quit on her. My persons fought hard to find ways to show her that what The Father (Allah) taught us was right and exact ,but she would focus on the odds of it happening or the numbers of people truly doing such things. After years of effort of trying to get her to see, we were thoroughly convinced that ONE ONLY LEARNS WHAT ONE TEACHES SELF: You have to be educatable to be educated. You have to be receptive in order to receive. You have to seek, in order to find. ULTIMATELY, SHE HAS TO LET THE TRUTH IN. ULTIMATELY, THE ONLY SELF IS SAVIOR. My person had to be made to believe that she had to save herself. She has a hole that only the almighty can fill, and she has to exalt that force from with inside her essence outward. Ironically, it was HER EGO THAT GOT IN THE WAY OF HER OWN SALVATION. I had not given up on her, she denied herself. Once I realized this, I recognized that her statements at the beginning were complaints that she was never going to do anything about. That is hard for a "do-something-about it-person" to accept. So I constantly tried to convince her that there are things that can be done, but she believed her ideas more. We strove to give her confidence, but she believed in drinking and wallowing in sorrow more. It is very hard to accept someone "fighting against your love" and blaming you for all their errors.

Looking back on it, we began to see that she spent a lot of time trying to "jump start her heart" a.k.a. pursuing happiness. Looking for things to bring her thrill and joy. Hunting for pleasure, excitement, drama, and surprise! My person only surmises that this was to counteract the misery she felt so often. She wanted prestige (recognition as important or famous) and since knowledge is power, being knowledgeable meant a lot to her. Not in the sense of having knowledge so you can live by what you learned, but in the sense of knowing something about it so you can impress your friends about the things that you know about, so you can seem aware concerning many topics. Notice we said SEEM AWARE. This is very important to note, because the excitement we saw was not because of revelation, but because her curiosity was being fed. Once she had this information, she could talk in various circles intelligently about various subjects and poise many questions. She could be in on several debates. She could get the attention she wants. She could be viewed as smart, intelligent and knowledgeable.The reason for bringing this up is not to throw a former love one under the bus, but to bring out characteristics of the type of person we will call EXPERTS IN THE FIELD {OF KNOWLEDGE OF SELF}. This knowledge was not the same as knowing. Their awareness is awareness of information available, not self realization that comes from applying it. The things one learns by applying the things that one knows is a wholly separate topic than the one discussed here. Her conversations were intellectual discourses. Witticisms. Points of interest. Not principles to fashion ones life by.There are a lot of people out there who can give you information and facts but their attachment to those facts is very superficial. It is not the points that one learns from awareness and experience. It is not felt and lived by. It is just a topic to throw out for debate and discussion. They find information fascinating! They get excited about discussions concerning information, but not how to curb their life to what they know. This requires discipline and they want to be a "free spirit." Negative thoughts oppress them so much of the time, they do not want to spend too much time disciplining themselves to principles; they want do what they feel. THEY GATHER INFORMATION TO BECOME "EXPERTS IN THE FIELD". They are "The Egyptologists who wear a cross around their neck and eat pork chop sandwiches."

Next thing we will hear is that "The reason I'm so Astro Boy-ish or B-ew-ITCH-ish is because my parents were homosexual and I had to overcompensate for it. First of all, nobody makes you do anything, you make your own decisions. Running from or going to extremes like, proving you are smarter than everyone else or more of a woman or man than anyone else because of how your parents are is not the answer and neither is “The Blame Someone Else” game. IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO SOLVE THE MYSTERY OF THE 46 CHROMOSOMES! YOU GET 23 FROM BOTH PARENTS AND IF YOU HAVE LITTLE TO NO CONTACT WITH BOTH OF YOUR PARENTS-- REGARDLESS TO THE DYSFUNCTION-- YOU WILL NEVER SOLVE THE MYSTERY OF THE PROPER THING TO DO WITH YOUR INHERITED TRAITS. This is not to say that being gay, lesbian, or bisexual is an inherited trait. Quite the contrary, all my studies have led me to conclude that this is a decision based upon strong urges made by the individual. Psychologically, there is an identity crisis that accompanies these urges, and some series of events that polarizes them towards their decision. Anyone who has seen THE COLOR PURPLE or FOR COLORED GIRLS WHO HAVE CONSIDERED SUICIDE WHEN THE RAINBOW IS ENUF can tell that within these dramatizations the authors are supplying you with the type and kind of events which helped to polarize them toward those feelings. Just remember, people like Jeffery Dahmer and Charles Manson also had such polarizing events upon their psyches to match their urges, yet it is an agreed conclusion to look at this as dysfunction and frown upon its adaptation as a way of life. I'm Sure Gregory Hines would rather have his brother Maurice not be gay-- or at least not so flamboyant with it. I'm sure Joan Crawford's daughter would have rather had a mother who knew how to be a better mother. IT IS NOBODY'S RESPONSIBILITY BUT YOUR OWN TO PLAY THE HAND YOU WERE DEALT. IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO CONSIDER ALL FACTORS AND COME UP WITH THE RIGHT DECISION, no matter how long it takes. You are the sole controller of what you do with the rest of your life, regardless of the circumstance. This view is supported by our lessons. We watch these homosexual parents today adopt children and raise them without a clue of how that will impact on the child's psyche to have gay parents. From where I sit, this practice is wrong. It was fought against for many years in this society, and now it is treated as though if it never happened. As this society and culture of the Devil's civilization "develops" further, it will have practices that do not coincide with our knowledge-- this is to be expected. Many things that will be accepted as "right" in this culture will be savage in ours. You have to decide which side you stand on. You have to decide which culture you embrace. It cannot be a "quasi" type of thing. It either has to be a "Divine culture" and those things of American culture which coincides, or a "Destroy culture" and those things which coincides with that. Yet, far too often we see people of our culture airing out their own personal opinions which are not "shown and proved" by their lessons. It is our scientific responsibility to back up all assertions with the degrees that they may fall under-- that is, unless you say you "Study 120 but are not a part of the Five Percent Nation/ NGE." But then again, why would anyone want to listen to a person who lets you know he/she doesn't subscribe to what you do, but brings up your culture for criticism. This "I'm Only Human" "Embrace your weakness Approach" is totally counter-productive to Self Development as far as our lessons teach.

What is meant by SOLVING THE MYSTERY OF THE 46 CHROMOSOMES AND YOU WILL NEVER SOLVE THE MYSTERY OF THE PROPER THING TO DO WITH YOUR INHERITED TRAITS, is that it is a family affair. God is a group reality seen through the eyes of an individual and your traits are made through both of your parents-- 23 from your dad and 23 from your mom. Those traits are displayed throughout both families. You got those traits in you. The best way to see what those traits are all about is to do the knowledge on your family lines: You will see both the proper and improper use of such qualities but it will give you some understanding as to why you feel like you do and where those feelings are coming from. It will place you at the pinnacle of what to do in regards to those said qualities and it will have you "better know thyself," because the family is you and you are the family! Just remember, they made their decisions about which direction they were going to take those INHERITED TRAITS and you have to make yours. 46 CHROMOSOMES IS EQUAL TO JUSTICE, MEANING THEY WILL GET A PENALTY OR REWARD FOR THEIR ACTIONS OR USE OF THOSE TRAITS AS YOU WILL GET A PENALTY OR REWARD FOR HOW YOU USE YOURS.To add to this, this woman got as far as the 40th degree in the One to forty. She had only her Actual Facts and Solar facts to complete, yet she did not use the jewels and tools. It was only an intellectual discourse. She went on to become a student of Yoruba (African Secret Society member) culture after that. We are certain that she did not stop there in her search. All of this is just oddities and curiosities to these types of people. They learn this stuff for dinner table discussions. THEY SEEK KNOWLEDGE TO DISPLAY THEMSELVES AS EXPERTS IN THE FIELD like as if they were anthropologist [characteristics and customs of humans] or pursuing anthropomorphic studies[study of the attributes of humans in things], NOT TO GROW OR CHANGE THEIR POINT OF VIEW. That's why, when you hear them build, THEY WILL OFTEN CONTRADICT THE WORDS IN WHICH THEY SPEAK OR THE TOPIC THEY ARE BUILDING ON BECAUSE THIS IS NOT SOMETHING THEY LIVE BY, THEY JUST KNOW OF IT. It's just a conversation to prove how smart they are; academics; an intellectual discourse-- they have no feelings concerning it. It's just a game, like cat and mouse. An experiment. It's questionable whether these kind can ever love anything because they haven't learned to love themselves. They are still struggling with that. But they can't take your advice because in their warped mind they think their smarter or more man or woman than you. It's a challenge to them and to them THEY ARE THE EXPERTS IN THE FIELD OF KNOWLEDGE OF SELF (without the Self Development or constraints or discipline there of), because they know better than anyone else. They're the smartest! They say IRRESPONSIBLE THINGS AND ADVOCATE WRECK LESS ABANDON IN THE GUISE OF FREEDOM. THEY ADVOCATE WILDNESS, WHILE SAYING THAT THEY ARE CIVILIZED because they study 120 but have a different understanding of God than is practiced by us. Nothing could be so ridiculous!

In the case of this woman, when she was under study, if something would go wrong we would say have you tried this or applied this degree and she would always come back with some "extenuating circumstance" [reason for why what we are saying doesn't apply to her situation]. After a while, we began to realize that KNOWLEDGE WAS SOMETHING THAT SHE WORE, NOT APPLIED. Student is not what they are because they never stick to the plan, they have a better idea; often doing what you advise them not to do. I bet she still goes by her own crooked philosophy to this day despite the advise of her therapists or any of the cultural systems she has available to her. That is because SHE IS AN EXPERT IN THE FIELD OF KNOWLEDGE OF SELF, EQUIPPED WITH THE BEST OF CONVERSATIONAL PIECES. That's why we say: "Forget the EXPERTS IN THE FIELD, PICK THE GENUINE ARTICLE. Don't be fooled by the razzle dazzle of cheap imitations...

Power, Politics, and Polar Opposites

You can always outlive a lie, but you can never outlive the truth.” –Rev. Glen Raybond (79 years old) Trinity Baptist Church

It doesn’t matter what type of Religious, Spiritual, or Cultural System you embrace, the fundamental purpose of that System must be Personal, Collective, and Environmental responsibility, preservation, and perpetuation. If that System is not rooted in those purposes (Personal, Collective, and Environmental), and does not serve those needs (responsibility, preservation, and perpetuation), then it cannot and will not sustain itself. One of the main characteristics we’re taught about the Devil is that the Devil has an “expiration date” (35/1-40). It’s not ironic that we directly learn this in the Understanding (3) Power (5) Degree: “What is the expiration date of the Devils Civilization?” What this tells us is that in order to comprehend true power (authority/influence), we must recognize the limitations in what it is not.

God of course is called ‘omnipotent’, which simply means to be ‘all powerful’, and being all powerful has no limitations to it. In regards to ‘power’, the 32/1-40 states, in part, that, “The mental ‘power’ of a real Devil is nothing in comparison to that of the Original Man” and “his physical ‘power’ is less than 1/3 than that of the Original Man, therefore his mental and physical ‘power’ is much weaker than that of the Original Man.” The 38/1-40 further reinforces this point by stating that God made the Devil “to show forth his ‘power’ that he is allwise and righteous, and that he could make a Devil which is weak and wicked, give him the ‘power’ to rule the Earth for 6,000 years, then destroy the Devil in one day without falling victim to the Devils Civilization. Otherwise to show and prove that Allah is God, always has been and always will be.” The word Politics means “the science of ‘power’ (authority/influence)”. The role of a Politician is to use this science of power (Politics), to get Policies enacted as Laws, that will then be enforced by the Police. One thing you’ll notice in the words Politics, Politician, Policy, and Police is that they all share the same root word ‘pol’. ‘Pol’ is a Greek root word which means “pole” or “polar”, and pole/polar are dynamic opposites of a sphere as in the North and South poles of the Earth, or opposing extremes (polar opposites) as in God/Devil, Righteous/Wicked, Civilized/Savage. Anyone who has taken the time to recite and study 120 Lessons of The NGE or the Supreme Wisdom Book of The NOI realizes that within this literature, the concept of ‘power’ is a reoccurring theme. Not a reoccurring theme in the abstract, b.u.t. ‘power’ in the context of ‘Power Relations’ between two opposing forces and political ideologies: God/Devil, Righteous/Wicked, Civilized/Savage. So as Gods/Earths, our 8-Point Cultural Curriculum (Supreme Mathematics, Supreme Alphabet, 120 Lessons, *12 Jewels) is in part, a Sociopolitical System, used to em‘power’ment us Personally, Collectively, and Environmentally. Building with one another and holding Parliaments is a process to work out these Politics socially: “Social means to advocate a Society of Men (and Women) or Group of Men (and Women) for one common cause. Equality means to be equal in everything” (8/1-40). We do this to ensure that our words and actions coincide with Godly/Righteous/Civilized Policies, because these Policies reinforce Laws that we Police. And we Police eachother by looking out for one another in order to protect and serve our Godly/Righteous/Civilized Standards. And as Gods/Earths, ALL OF US are Personally, Collectively, and Environmentally responsible for preserving and perpetuating this Cultural Worldview.

Before we give anyone credit, including myself, for being a true advocate of our Culture we must first ask ourselves these fundamental questions:

* What are their Politics?
* Does their Sociopolitical Agenda meet the fundamental criteria of Personal, Collective, and Environmental responsibility, preservation, and perpetuation of our Cultural Worldview?
* How are they using the science of ‘power’, and what kind of Policies are they enacting (endorsing) and policing (protecting): God/Devil, Righteous/Wicked, Civilized/Savage?

Sometimes I’ve come across People who have our 8-Point Curriculum but claim to not be in The NGE (The Nation of Gods and Earths). They claim to have this Knowledge for themselves and are simply God/Earth in their own Universe. Well ask yourself: Does this person’s Sociopolitical Agenda meet the fundamental criteria of Personal, Collective, and Environmental responsibility, preservation, and perpetuation of our Cultural Worldview? Your answer will be without question “Emphatically No!” They themselves didn’t get Knowledge out of thin air and are benefitting from the Personal, Collective, and Environmental contributions of other people, places, and things that came before them and are often still present today. If this perpetual process (reciprocity) didn’t happen, then this selfish person wouldn’t have anything to be selfish about in the first place. If left up to them, this Knowledge will die right along with them, and if it’s really of God, it should have no expiration date… There are also those who only select certain parts of our 8-Point Curriculum to identify with. Well ask yourself: What are their Politics? When you listen to them and cee their actions in terms of opposing extremes (polar opposites), what category do they fall in or have a leaning towards: Godly/Devilish, Righteous/Wicked, Civilized/Savage? Obviously, if there’s things they deal with and other things they don’t deal with, there will always be a huge variance that expose these diametrically opposed views. For example, they may not eat pork but cee nothing wrong with going around porking white girls or any girl for that matter. They may call themselves Raheem Allah, b.u.t. when you close your eyes and listen to their combative, jeering, immature conversation they sound no different than 85 T-Bone smoking an L on the block. Since they don’t fully embrace our Culture in it’s entirety, they’ll always come off ‘Bipolar’ and you’ll constantly hear/cee them ping-ponging between the diametrically opposed sides of God/Devil, Righteous/Wicked, Civilized/Savage. For example, one minute you’ll hear/cee them talking about lofty concepts of Civilization, and the next moment they’ll be talking about Savagely sh*tting in Niggas caskets. In one breath they’ll be celebrating how they’re the true & living God, and in the next breath they’ll be embracing how Humanly frail, imperfect, and ignorant they actually are. Then there are those who claim to be Gods/Earths yet they claim to be or operate like they’re “politically” neutral. These People are of course some of the most dangerous because they refuse to take responsible stances on Personal, Collective, and Environmental issues in regards to our Cultural Worldview. These are the People who cee the People they roll with, which may be so-called Gods/Earths, involved in activities that are clearly Devilish, Wicked, and Savage, yet will turn a blind eye, not build with them about correcting it, or won’t issue a public statement denouncing it. In their so-called neutrality, they’re actually the most political! Their suffering silence, lack of integrity, and amoral conscience reflects the same political stance of People who had/have an opportunity to fight against injustices being carried out against them, others, and the environment. These are the People who quietly support and continually promote the Devilishment, Wickedness, and Savagery that’s going on and they’re more difficult to address because you don’t cee them. For example, People get angry about many of the political positions the Right Wing Tea Baggers openly take, b.u.t fail to realize that the one’s who feel/believe the exact same way, who’re not saying anything publically, while claiming to not be into Politics, are the ones you really need to be looking at…

So in the final analysis, it comes down to ‘power’ and how we propose to use that ‘power’. Traditionally, we teach that “power is the truth”. So in this sense, if we’re Gods/Earths who supposedly have the truth, then what are we doing with it? Are we using this truth to em‘power’ the Righteous or the Wicked? Are we using this power truthfully, and in the interest of being Godly or Devilish? When we recite how we’re Civilized People throughout our Lessons, is that truly what we’re about or are we really just “Savages in the pursuit of Happiness”? (17/1-40) We must consider the ‘Power Relations’ we cee demonstrated throughout our Lessons between God and Devil, and properly align ourselves with what’s Righteous and Civilized. This template helps us identify the same ‘Power Relations’ throughout our Lessons we learn in everyday life! When I learn in the 1/1-14 that “the Devil isn’t settled on the Best Part” and that I must “preserve the best part for myself” because “there is no peace amongst him (Devil)”, I should know better not to try to resolve (settle) a situation with a person who always “starts causing trouble amongst Righteous People, making accusations, causing them to fight and kill one another” (4/1-14) around my children, at my home, or any place else I consider sacred. The Original Man who historically handled this situation has given me the proper insight, posture, and procedure to handle it for myself; the game doesn’t change, only the players. When I learn in the 10/1-14 that we historically served capital punishment on People who were found to be “100% weak & wicked” because “they would not keep and obey the laws” after being given a chance to “clean themselves up and come amongst us” (9/1-14), then I need to dissolve the business relationship with someone if I clearly cee that their heart, time, and finances aren’t 100% into what we’re supposed to be “advocating for one common cause” (8/1-14), and they consistently disobey the rules of our partnership. Especially after giving them chances to correct it. Not only are these ‘Power Relations’ demonstrated throughout our Lessons, b.u.t. we clearly cee these stances within our Supreme Mathematics and Supreme Alphabet as well. When we look at the #‘2’ or Wisdom within the Supreme Mathematics, we are called upon to assess our degree of ‘right discernment/judgment’. There is no “that’s your right and this is my right” where Wisdom is concerned. Right is right and wrong is wrong! Some People may say, “There’s more than one way to skin a cat”, and a Wise Man/Woman will say, “It’s not right to skin a cat.” Although Wisdom is a form of being clever, along with sophistication, cunning , and guile, ONLY Wisdom has a sense of right and justness to it. So in saying this, sounding good, coming off intellectual, or trying to razzle dazzle People with Supreme Mathematics still only falls into one of two political categories: God/Devil, Righteous/Wicked, Civilized/Savage. When looking at the letter ‘K’ (11), King or Kingdom within our Supreme Alphabet, the Sociopolitical stance of a King and a Kingdom is called into question. We must ask ourselves: What defines a King, how does a King operate, and what are the rules and regulations upon which is Kingdom in governed by? What is the proper attitude and posture of a King? How does a King relate to and what is his responsibility to others and the environment? All of these and many other questions gives us a greater sense and perspective of the Attribute of a King and as Gods: we (Gods) are considered King of Kings. Therefore, holding and exemplify this Title demands of us a level of Godliness, Righteousness, and Civilization unparalleled. If not, then we must also ask ourselves: What kind of King (God) are we?

In closing, ‘power’ is more than just the truth. It’s about what you do with the truth. Whether we know the truth or not doesn’t change the fact that we’re still making political statements and taking stances by what we verbally/nonverbally say and do. These statements/stances, whether knowingly or unknowingly, define our ‘Power Relations’ and whether we’re about God/Devil, Righteousness/Wickedness, Civilization/Savagery. While the power of the former (God) “has no said birth record”, the later (Devil) does have a limitation to his power. It is up to us to decide what side we’re on because we can’t have it both ways! And if we want to continue believing we can have it both ways then we’ll eventually find out that it won’t last forever…
