"If you climbed on a platform to tell people the Truth," says a Spanish proverb, "you would be the only one listening." Though "Truth Blindness" appeared early in human history, it was crystallized by the Greek philosopher (480-411 BC) Pythagoras' brute comment: “man is the measure of all things” and not God. Though Plato and Aristotle's euphemistic explanation was: "what men wish to think or do determines for them what is true or right," its profound effects on Brutes has led to devastating world-wide consequences ever since. For example, Brutes, by means of the GUN (to Kill/Take/Destroy), incorporate this evil Seed concept into making it honorable to be Self-Absorbed (as is rampant in today's world); playing by their own rules; demanding "do as I say, not as I do" standards; deciding what is "right" for others; and generating mind controlling lies, confusions, and delusions. These helped justify the suppression of women; the institution of slavery; the "stay-in-your-place" brainwashing of Enslaved Africans; today's oppression of minorities, etc. Nevertheless, a way the bad effects manifesting in victims can be reversed is by the Ancient African Bible teaching of: "The Truth shall set you free"--a maxim adopted into the European Bible (John 8:32).
So, since it is above the top of the Cosmic 'A-Frame' Ladder, where did the Spiritual Truth Seed arise? Just as every human sprang from the original African Ancestor c200,000 years ago, Truth derives from the Cosmic Mind (located in "The Other World" called the Amenta). It stays within the Spiritual Elements confines and, said Ancient African Sages, is a Cosmic Realm copy of the Cosmic Mind. To elaborate with the Tree Concept, the Cosmic Realm's Spiritual Elements are in the form of Divine Archetypes ("Seeds," each containing a complete and pure compliment of the Spiritual Elements). The Truth "Seed" evolves into Truth Prototype Patterns, likened to Roots, a Trunk/Vines, Branches, Leaves, and Fruit Truths. Each Truth, in conjunction with Unconditional Love, Reality, and the Natural, construct all Cosmic Real and Natural things. The "Sameness" in every Archetype's offspring is because of Holonomy--the whole is inside the Seed; the whole is contained in each of the Seed's manifested parts; and the Seed is found throughout the whole. Together, these Spiritual Elements trigger the unfolding of all events as well as power what underlies the activities of all natural forces forming each entity's Cosmic Organism Base/Foundation. This applies to wherever Truth is located between "The Heavens" and the Earth World. Crude simplified daily life Holonomy expressions are: "like father, like son" and "the fruit does not fall far from the tree." However, what humans grasp as being the Truth depends on that human's mindset and viewing level. In short, in the way all humans carry the "Genetics" of the first Primitive African, so does every part of the 'Truth-Tree" carry the "Genetics" of its Divine Source and Divine Archetype Cosmic acts and potential. As a result, Truth's Holonomy display is the same within whatever real thing contains it, and no matter where it is present on the Metaphorical "A-Frame" Ladder.
Thus, Critical Thinking's (CT) job is to see the "Big Picture" of the Cosmic mass of things and its background. Then zero in on one area to inspect its most pertinent details. Even though the "Genetics" (i.e. What it is) remains the same throughout the Cosmos, a CT interpretation is different at different places, in different things, and in relation to "What it is," "What it Does," and "How it Appears." CT for Truth discerns distinctions in the mass; makes separations of what is in varying degrees of evolution of the Truth, distortions, and the unreal; completes needed research; and prioritizes to present options for what possesses Order, Regularity, Coherence, Consistency, Compatibility, Balance, Harmony, and Predictability. Now, CT makes decisions based upon which Truth option is best suited for the problem at hand.
