"Ras Heru: "Cee, thats what i mean by knowing the ROOT of words BEFORE they EVOLVED through different languages and cultures.The word "Man" comes from a Sanskrit word meaning "Mind".Im sure you heard of the word "Manas" before, which also comes from sanskrit and represents the type of mind that we have, as seperated from the rest of the life-form kingdoms.The dark-skinned are darker hue ones were the ones who connected the word Hue to Man, because they understood that they were Mind, but the body of matter that they (the manas)were clothed with, is what gave way to the word Hue, which describes it."
Then you replied "Can you provide me with the source(s) of this information?"
most of the information that i came up with were "connect the dots" information, and what i have developed along the way...but as far as the word manas- "The lower or instinctive mind, seat of desire and governor of sensory and motor organs, called indriyas. Manas is termed the undisciplined, empirical mind. Manas is characterized by desire, determination, doubt, faith, lack of faith, steadfastness, lack of steadfastness, shame, intellection and fear. It is a faculty of manomaya kosha, the lower astral or instinctive-intellectual sheath."
"Mind colored by desire (ambition/personal love, masculine/feminine equally selfish). The lower mind or animal soul for lower or REINCARNATION EGO*(all are born with this type of mind when one comes into the world according to the hindus)"
Ras Heru: I didnt get technical with my explanations, i basically just summed it up.But, what i mean technically speaking, is yes, you are also right, that the "pale skin" man ALSO has pigmentation, because we all have the same melanocytes, but its the abundance of it that matters (melanin).
Your reply"This to me is illogical. Are you saying that ones colour determines if one is human or not?"
based on the definition of what hue-man is, and what i know it to be, i will say again, that to me, the hueman is the ones who were on every square inch of the planet earth before the pale skin man came to be through grafting/seperating germs or "natural circumstances" if you may. The pale skin man is "new" on this planet, everywhere he went he wrote down in his journals, that there exists a people, all over the planet earth, that have dark hue, and he did this WITHOUT DISTINCTION of their physical differences, therefore he saw people that were un-like himself.There are different "colors" of the "black" man, so it would be illogical for me to say color determines if one is hue-man or not, but this paragraph replying to you should tell you what i think.they are not natural, we are natural...bottomline.
"I also find contradiction with what you are said here from an earlier post:"
"Ras Heru: to me, those peoples that existed on this earth, who were NATURALLY blessed with the said, different shades, are hue-man.
"I thought that shades (of skin) ranged from black to brown to yellow to white. What are the different shades that you speak of?"
to get technical, "black" is what created the brown, red and yellow, and the last stage of it being "white", yes, these are the shades im talking about....but "white", like i said, is the LAST stage(the end of the road), which is a bleached out gene, seperating the brown gene from the blackman and grafting it into a "white" by destroying the "black"."white" in itself, is not a shade at all, but an absence.The "white" one is a "colored" person...not the original man.
"Ras Heru:I dont dis-like albino brother and sisters, ofcourse not, but the fact of the matter is, that melanin is the truth, and speaks in and of itself, and whoever isnt blessed with the abundance of it, nature will still takes its course.
"What are you really saying here? What makes albinos your brothers and sisters if they have even less pigmentation/melanin that Whites? Also, based on what you have tried to explain to me, do you think that albinos are human?"
ok, let me get technical again,lol.Like i have observed myself, there are albinos who are/were in africa, that seem to look different from the albino's of the "white" man.When i said, "albino brothers and sisters", i was speaking broadly...but in the realm of melanin, NO , they are NOT my brothers and sisters(this is according to the flesh).Im not claiming to know it all, nor do i know a whole lot about genetics(the basics)...but if there is a distinction to be made between the albino and the "white" man, then it seems to me that mr whitey has caused more confusion.Both of these mutations, however they came to be, are not blessed by Ra or the sun/life giver, therefore they are more prone to commit un-nattural acts more than the "black" womb/man...they both are in the same category, but like i said, it seems that the "white" man causes more confusion.
And to answer your last question...albinos are PEOPLE, they are MAN-KIND, but are NOT hue-man.P.e.a.c.e
