The Illusion of Separation
“A human being is a part of the whole called by us ‘the universe,’ a part limited in time and space,” wrote Einstein in 1950. “He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings, as something separate from the rest—a kind of optical illusion of consciousness.” It’s a brilliant and fascinating perspective, and science tells us that it’s true. Our eyes inform us that there is a definite boundary between us and the world around us, and so we perceive ourselves as entities separate to the wider universe—as individuals just making our home in this vast place. But when we take a step back, we can see that we’re molecular machines built from a specific arrangements of atoms—atoms that existed before we were born and will continue to exist after we die. They were recycled from the dust of dead stars, and we’re only their temporary custodians. Fundamentally, each of us is just a tiny individual expression of an enormous singular entity—so we are the universe perceiving and studying itself. The idea that the individual and the universe are inseparable is a humbling, counter-intuitive and ultimately awe-inspiring idea—there’s a mad kind of beauty in knowing that we do not live in the universe, but rather we are the universe. As Feynman wrote: “I…a universe of atoms…an atom in the universe.”

“Throughout history, it has been the inaction of those who could have acted, the indifference of those who should have known better, the silence of the voice of justice when it mattered most; that has made it possible for evil to triumph.”
— Haile Selassie

on Pan-Africanism…

wakeupblackpower:

Here’s a fun fact, at some point in time we as a Black Peoples in America attempted to create a Black Nation, governed by only Black People with our own laws, our own rights and the remaining shadow of oppression to be elsewhere…can you guess who shut that shit down?

Pan-Africanism “… is a movement that seeks to unify African people or people living in Africa, into a “one African community”. Differing types of Pan-Africanism seek different levels of economic, racial, social, or political unity. The largest governmental body striving for governmental unity is the African Union.

Both “Edward Wilmot Blyden has been called the Father of Pan-Africanism. & W. E. B. Du Bois has also been called the Father of Pan-Africanism. Du Bois hosted the highly influential 5th Pan-African Conference in Manchester, UK.”

Sun Ra is a great genius of philosophy and the theory of Afrocentricity. He believed that he came from Mars because on Mars as peoples we would have our own history, our own definition as a peoples. This is something I can follow, because in a country where oppression is subtely hidden but still existent-we are not truly free nor equal, point is, Why are we still having issues?
