News on the Eve of the Election.

There are many heroes who have worked to advance STEM fields for a long time. Dr. Hilda Hutcherson is one of the greatest doctors of our generation in America. For long years, she has not only helped people medically. She has promoted great work in giving black people and other minorities opportunities to go into the medical field. She has advanced diversity and mentorships nationwide. She’s also among the top physicians in the nation as according to Black Enterprise and Castle Connoly. She worked in Columbia University. She has written books, and inspired the world via her magnificent work ethic and her gracious actions. I wish the best for the Sister. Sister Dr. Alexa Canady is a history maker. She was born in Lansing, Michigan. Her love of education is inspirational and she worked hard to achieve magnificent accomplishments. For long decades, she has helped children throughout America. She was the first African American woman to become a neurosurgeon when she completed her residency at the University of Minnesota in 1981. Dr. Canady is an inspiration for anyone seeking to better themselves and anyone who desires their dreams to be fulfilled. There are a lot of unsung heroes in the world. She is an unsung hero. She is Sister Dr. Hadiyah-Nicole Green. She was raised in St. Louis, Missouri. She recently received a grant in order for her to research laser technology in order for her to fight cancer. Cancer is a vicious disease that doesn't discriminate. It can be caused by genetics or by other means. Regardless of our political views, we are in opposition to cancer and we want it to be extinguished completely. A lot of people in Facebook are doing a magnificent job in bringing awareness on this issue and spending time plus energy to help those who suffer cancer. You know who you are. Everyone here also have great compassion too and I always love all of you here like family. Dr. Hadiyah-Nicole Green has work hard and her accomplishments will forever be respected by me. She is a role model and she wants more black women to be involved in STEM fields. I agree with her 100 percent. Today, she is the assistant professor in the physics department of Tuskegee University. The beauty of physics is that it deals with mathematical formulas, the analysis of the motion of particles, and the evaluation of laws of gravity including other physical laws in the Universe. Dr. Hadiyah-Nicole Green is an excellent scientist and a wonderful human being. She is in her 30's and we want her to continue to do even more for the cause of eradicating cancer once and for all. Bless Sister Dr. Hadiyah-Nicole Green. Sister Mae Jemison has promoted STEM fields for years and decades. She is the first African American woman to travel in space in November of 1992.    

One of the greatest mysteries deals with art from years ago. There are much occult and Masonic imagery in the French royal art. The Kings of France weren’t just powerfully politically and economically centuries ago. Many of them knew about the Secret Mysteries, parts of the ancient Universal Religion, and other facets of the occult. Now, we see more the meanings of various forms of symbolism in art and architecture.  Many French royals and those of the French Monarchy have ties to Freemasons and others with knowledge of secret occult knowledge. We find pine cone symbol in many Royal artwork and structures. The pine cone is found in French royal vases, urns, clocks, and other Rococo artworks from the 1700’s. We know that to scholars, the pine cone refers to the Third eye or the pineal gland in occult literature. The pineal gland is found in the vertebrate brain and it’s an endocrine gland. Its function mainly is to produce melatonin. Melatonin works in the central nervous system to help modulate sleep pattern.  Melatonin production is stimulated by darkness and inhibited by light. It has other functions too. In Hinduism and other traditions, the pine cone is found. High level Freemason Manly P. Hall (in his Secret Teachings of All Ages book) refers to the pine cone image as a representation of pineal gland or the sacred eye of the ancients. Manly P. Hall wrote the following: “…the Kundalini of Hindu mysticism… is the Lost Key of Masonry…the Spirit Fire is lifted up through the thirty-three degrees, or segments of the spinal column, and enters into the domed chamber of the human skull…where it invokes Ra (the pineal gland)… As its name signifies, the pineal gland is the sacred pine cone in man – the eye single…” Therefore, Third eye imagery and pine code imagery have existed for thousands of years. There is one Louis XVI-era vase which shows twin serpents rising symmetrically up the right and left sides. They ascend to the pine cone finial at the apex, which is similar to activating the Third Eye. The Third Eye in the occult represents how the soul can be activated to find spiritual and social enlightenment. Similar images like the French heraldic emblem of the fleur de lis was used by the Merovingian Kings. These Kings were the first major Frankish Kings of France. The fleur de lis is similar to the European triptych image. There is also the Goddess statue holding the caduceus in front of the Palace of Versailles outside of Paris. In the 18th century Masonic temple at the Château de Mongenan, pictured below, twin Pillars flank the central “Third-Eye-in-the-Triangle. The two are aligned with the Sun and Moon on the right and left sides—a perfect parallel to the French Masonic apron. According to Wikipedia, the first Masonic lodge in France was founded in 1688. Also, it mentioned the following: “In the 1740s an original and mixed-sex form of Freemasonry, known as “Masonry of Adoption” arose among the high French aristocracy, of which the duchess of Bourbon-Condé, sister of the duke of Chartres, was Grand Mistress.” Therefore, arcane images existed in the Louvre and other places in France for years and centuries. Now, there is a distinction between people who sincerely want justice for people and the oligarchy back then who wanted the status quo. Nefarious people distorted the true meanings of symbols and images in order for some to enact the promotion of authoritarianism, suppression of human rights, and bigotry. We have to promote goodness and human justice.

One the most famous architectural landmarks in the world is the Chartres Cathedral. It is known as the Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Chartres (or the Cathedral of Our Lady of Chartres). It is located in Chartres, France, which is about 50 miles southwest of Paris. The current cathedral was mostly constructed between 1194 and 1220. The town was a bishopric in the 300’s. A bishopric is a region or location where a bishop governs a location religiously. It shows an elaborate display of Gothic imagery and it has symbolism too. The cathedral is highly preserved. The majority of the original stained glass windows survive intact. The minor changes existed since the early 13th century.  The building's exterior is dominated by heavy flying buttresses which allowed the architects to increase the window size significantly, while the west end is dominated by two contrasting spires – a 105-metre (349 ft.) plain pyramid completed around 1160, and a 113-metre (377 ft.) early 16th-century Flamboyant spire on top of an older tower. Equally notable are the three great façades, each adorned with hundreds of sculpted figures illustrating key theological themes and narratives. Since at least the 12th century, the cathedral has been a visiting place. Many Christian pilgrims visit the cathedral. Its ground breaking in its Romanesque style existed in 1145. The Chartres Cathedral in France is huge in its height and size. It is taller than the Statue of Liberty which found in New York City. The cathedral's stone include massive blocks. The builders of the structure definitely knew about complex mathematics and they enacted precise architectural precision. The cathedral included the pointed arch, the flying buttress, and the ribbed vault.  Like always, messages can be shown in architecture: “…the history of architecture is the history of writing. Before the printing press, mankind communicated through architecture. From Stonehenge to the Parthenon…Rows of stones were sentences…while Greek columns were “hieroglyphs” pregnant with meaning.” (Rob Zaretsky’s “Victor Hugo and Architecture”). The Chartres towers have iron emblems on top of them. The North tower has a sun and the south tower has a moon image on top of it. The sun and the moon in the esoteric world represent the doctrine of opposites (or that twin powers exist in the Universe like hot and cold, the moon and the sun, etc.). Twin pillars are later found in Masonic iconography or the Jachin and Boaz archetype. The Masonic document of the Tracing board has the Jachin being the related to the sun and Boaz relating to the moon (with the All Seeing Eye in the top middle of the tracing board). There is the Rose Window and the Labyrinth image in the Chartres cathedral too.

There can be no full expression of the black human experience without mentioning the concept and the movement of Pan-Africanism. Black people worldwide either follow it, know about it, or are influenced by it. Pan Africanism is the view that people of black African descent should unite socially, politically, and economically in order for justice to exist in the world. Pan Africanism has its modern roots from the 19th century and today it is an international movement. Back during the 19th century, many Pan-Africanists wanted to return to Africa as a way to escape the tyranny of slavery and racial injustice. From the 20th century to the present, Pan-Africanism has been influenced by Marcus Garvey’s Back to Africa movement of the 1920’s and W.E.B. Du Bois’ work in Pan-Africanism too. Pan-Africanists and black nationalists grew in part because of the lynching of black people, the racism found in society, and the resistance to Jim Crow apartheid. Pan-African congresses existed back during the early 20th century. During the Paris Peace Conference just after World War I, the Pan-Africanist Congress petitioned the colonial powers to have black self-determination in Africa and an end to segregation to America. Their petition was ignored, because the Paris Peace Conference was dominated by white aristocrats, capitalists and overt imperialists who didn’t want true African liberation or justice at all. New Congresses of pro-Pan-African views spread in Europe, and New York City. George Padmore was one leading Pan-Africanist from Trinidad. Padmore was once Communist, but left Stalin as he viewed Stalin as too authoritarian (which he was) and too non-interested in African liberation. By this time, many people started to see Stalin as not a true representation of authentic socialism, but a totalitarian ruler. Padmore set about putting a Pan-Africanist program into action, forming the International African Service Bureau and launching a journal that aimed to unite Black liberation struggles in Africa, the Americas and the West Indies. He was assisted in this project by another Black Trinidadian, CLR James, who had recently joined the Trotskyist opposition to Stalin. During the Second World War, pan-Africanism grew in leaps and bounds. A Fifth Pan-Africanist Congress was held in October 1945, in Manchester, England, only a few weeks after the war's end. This time the meeting attracted the future leaders of independent Africa, including Kwame Nkrumah, who would lead the struggle to turn Britain's Gold Coast colony into Ghana, and Jomo Kenyatta, who led the opposition to British rule in Kenya.

Padmore was joyful of the new generation of black leaders who fought for independence. Many Pan-Africanists wanted political independence and not to be dominated by either Washington or Moscow. Paul Robeson supported the anti-colonial movements in Africa too. He wanted Black Americans to explore African traditions. Robeson was a polyglot and a genius. Kwame Nkrumah invited Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. to visit Ghana and he did during the late 1950’s to celebrate Ghana’s independence. Dr. King wanted segregation in America and colonialism in Africa to end 100 percent. Dr. King visited Nigeria too. Many black leftists were united in supported Ghanaian independence despite their ideological diversity (Padmore wasn’t a communist anymore, Du Bois was a Communist, and James broke with the Trotskyist movement. Yet, all 3 men supported African liberation against colonialism). Pan-Africanism is around today. This movement of African independence inspired young civil rights activists in America. Malcolm X, Kwame Ture, Assata Shakur, and others were inspired by the revolutionaries in the Motherland of Africa. SNCC members visited Africa and supported anti-colonial movements. Ernest Chanda from the Zambian Committee for Freedom of Expression, Wynter Kabimba (of the General of the Rainbow Party), and other leaders are still fighting for revolutionary change in our current generation. It is important that we reject the establishment of a fiefdom where wealth is controlled by a select few of upper middle class and wealthy people. We want the workers and the poor to control their own wealth and we want the proletariat to have total liberation without capitalist elitists owning the means of production. The workers should own their own means of production as they are involved in creating items in the first place. The working class and the poor have the right to lead their own revolutionary movement for social change in the world. Pan Africanists are diverse. Some are socialists, some are conservatives, some are progressives, and others are independents. Yet, they all agree in the same goal, which is freedom, justice, and liberation for all black people of African descent in the world without exception. This is a fight to end imperialism, patriarchy, capitalist exploitation, and all injustices of the world. This is the fight for human liberation. That is what Pan-African unity is all about.
