The alarm rings, its that shitty iphone sonar pinging sound… “Pop the kettle on” dad shouts across the apartment. It’s 7 am and I get up for work. “You’re up early” I respond, dragging my feet into the kitchen “ Yeah, got some business to take care of” he responds “Alright, well, have a good one” I jeered sarcastically short for anything constructive to say, wiping the sleep from my eyes, grumpy and tired after yet another exhausting night up late in the studio having had little sleep.
Dad understood the struggle of the musician and the suffering artiste, let alone the tragedy of living under the current system of injustice. A full fledged international rockstar himself he was the lead percussionist, bassist and founding member for the Rock super group Osibisa and the first and only wholly independent Muurish (Grenadan) writer and publisher of 5 independent solo albums and numerous singles and EP’s at a time when analog, tape machines and big budget studios was all there was, he was used to hard work and non stop innovation.
Sipping the hot cup of tea as it invigorates my senses. Feels like my brain is turning on. I look up at the old man as he leaves out the door, looking sharp and dressed to the nines. “Aren’t you gonna have your cuppa?” I asked “eh, no, I’ll be running a little behind If I do actually, but thank you, you have it, it looks like you need it!” my father teased grinning at me with a smile so irresistible I couldn’t hold mine back. Looking at my exhausted face from the door on his way out he hollers “Look after yourself, you’ve only got one body! And you’re not any use dead, I’m out, see you later” “Thanks Dad” I agreed, lifting the tea cup, toasting to his humor and wisdom. As I sat hunched over at the dining table still reluctant to get up.
I loved science and math and although traumatised by my teachers through school and consequently great at neither I was still interested and enthusiastic about the disciplines. I was developing techniques and approaches to composing electronic music and designing sounds using logic, math, geometry and symmetry. I’ve always loved simplicity, the ability to distill something seemingly complex to its essentials without compromising its effect was a challenge I took pleasure in pursuing.
Since I was around age thirteen I made some key observations in the world around me, that the universe is full of patterns, geometry and balances, from the micro to the macro, the fractal shapes, from the beauty and symmetry of the flower to the ratios of distance among planetary constellations or fluid dynamics but It would take me another 10 years of thinking, electronic music making, designing and engineering to finally create my own approach and philosophy: Mechagen: Machine Generation, and I now use music, sound, the word and visuals, to express these ideas.
Mechagen is my way of thinking and approaching things, Its purpose is to solve problems, ANY problem. Its method is found by following LOGIC, the logic already inherent in and around all things, the rules, consistent phenomena, the geometry, the symmetry, the Math, the balance and it goes a little something like this;
Examining the ENVIRONMENT OF THE PROBLEM (observing these variables) allows us to ascertain exactly what the problem is and how It came about to create imbalance and by using the LAW of COMPENSATION or re balancing we can devise a constructive solution based on establishing or restoring BALANCE. The law of compensation is inescapable, balance requires it, movement requires it, light compensates for dark, heat for cold and dynamic for static. Mechagen is also the symbol which represents the desire to become the Universal Man or Woman, to strive and achieve something greater than what we are born as with what we’ve been given by using logic at all times, in all places, whenever possible.
I created the word MECHAGEN for the purpose of describing this way of thinking, It is a title, a religion (a belief which molds behavior) and a philosophy (way of living/love of wisdom). It uses as reference, common latin language building blocks. Mecha: suggesting Mechanical, Machine like, Logical and Gen: suggesting Generation, to generate, thus MECHAGEN for this purpose means ‘to generate logic’ or ‘produce logic’ and/or Be Logical.
Machine Generation extends this definition and describes the group of people who practice this philosophy, so one can be a part of Machine Generation by practicing MECHAGEN.
Finally the term or title ‘Mechahead’ means an individual who practices the philosophy of MECHAGEN and/or consumes my music and media devoutly ;-)
Santa Claus is a shortened form of San/Saint Nicholas. He is supposed to be this easy-go happy fat Nordic fellow (Pale skin man) from the North pole yelling ho..ho..ho.. and as he merrily brings the cheer of the Christmas season to all and sundry.
Who is the real Saint Nicholas?
Nicholas, was born during the third century in the village of Patara, in what is now the southern coast of Turkey. He was born of very wealthy ethnic black Anatolians of the ancient Roman Empire. He was one of those ancient and dominant black Muurs of Europe that you only fleetingly come across in today’s western history, because the Gothic Europeans would hide the true Muurish history in Europe. Nicholas’ wealthy parents, died in an epidemic while Nicholas was still young. Being a devout Christian, he followed the words of Jesus to “sell what you own and give the money to the poor.”
Nicholas used his whole inheritance to assist the needy, the sick, and the suffering. He was made the Bishop of Myra while still a young man.
The high office of Nicholas at such a young age speaks to dominant role played by Muurish black Anatolians and Africans in creating the church as we know it today. It is a historical fact that most of the early and very famous bishops of the church, who lived and gave their lives for the church were either Muurish Africans or Muurish diaspora. #blackfacts #saintnicholas #christians #jesus #religion #muurish #england #rome #roman #turkey #turkish #blackhistory #blackhistorymonth #blackhistoryfacts #unknownblackhistory #unknownknowledge #santaclaus #whitehistory #lies #stolenlegacy
Look at your pope’s give honors to the Divine Virgin Mother and her Child. But y'all still want to Worship a Beast “Jesus”, which is really you worshipping the Pope/Satan, while he behind closed doors honoring the truly Divine. But anyhow much RAspect and honor to the Divine Virgin Mother and Child. 13LOVE #VirginMary #MaryMagdalene #Moors #Muurish https://www.instagram.com/p/BBS-VM2SwgW/
