Whereas Ancient Africans focused on the "What it is" of a Thing (i.e. the way the Thing is Known), Brutes avoid that and present only "What it does" and "How it appears"--both preventing Certainty. Since very ancient times, Brutes have spotlighted assumptions because of their ability to generate an element of doubt in victims. The resultant uncertainty about what people "knew/know" galvanizes chronic frustration, fear, confusion, Illusions, and Delusions. Then Brutes step in and reconcile all ambivalent attitudes--teaching with fantasy stories containing highly abstracted concepts--stories that "SEEM" right--stories containing some familiar information the people have accepted--stories told in an exciting visual media way. This combination leads people--because that is all they are aware of that exists--to simply "give-in" to these false and misleading stories, embrace them as true, and then defend them.The Wheel Concept helps order this complex subject. Spoke 1 is definitions for a given thing being unrelated + in conflict + multiple versions. Thus, mixed dimensions reign in various groups using the same word to express different ideas or the same idea expressed in conflicting words. Spoke 2: Informational gaps caused by the ravages of time and Nature; by information deliberately destroyed, erased, rewritten, reassigned, or ignorantly misinterpreted; and by conquering tribes having brought in their own words and meanings for the familiar ideas of the natives. Spoke 3: Misinterpretations in the media, in museums, in educational magazines, and in all books and chapters in books; from layer by layer of addition, subtraction, and deviation changes in Word Stories between ancient and present time and/or due to time, erosions, corrosions, additions, and losses. Spoke 4: lack of essential information; faulty circumstantial evidence; the imposition of partition (wrong dividing or separating); "logic" and other statements lacking facts. Spoke 5: structural weakness violating the integrity of a thing--e.g. defective or incomplete in content, poor fit, mis-arrangements, improper combinations; inconsistencies; contradictions. Spoke 6: incomparable--the word Immaterial means there is nothing to which it--e.g. “Life,” “Death,” or “Consciousness”--can be compared.

Spoke 7: Bad Assumptions--e.g. substituting "SEEMS" (information) for “what is”; grasping information as Knowing); equating familiar with Understanding; believing a piece is the complete scope of all there is to know about that situation. Spoke 8: Modifications from different systems of values. Spoke 9: Interchanging near Synonyms--“dark”/“black”; Worth/Value/Values. Spoke 10: obscure ideas, nonsensical facts, meaningless ceremony to befuddle. Spoke 11: using technical jargon, This, That, There/Their without explaining. Spoke 12: refusing facts; biased by viewing the facts and then selecting only those facts which support ones point of view. Spoke 13: Selective Planes of Existence--e.g. focus only on the material. Spoke 14: ethnocentric--opinions related to oneself, ones subculture, ones society at large of “whatever benefits me”; failing to reconcile standards of different cultures--Brutes judging other cultures as heathen or superstitious for being "different." Spoke 15: Disordered Thinking. Spoke 16: “guessing” in reconciling ambivalent attitudes with highly abstracted formulations (what is taken out of physical aspects) in a way that contradictions or statements favor ones self-interest. Spoke 17: Pseudo-intellectuals' big words without definitions. Spoke 18: lack of clarity Camouflage what is already present in a disguised form; suppressing, misplacing, displacing, making murky, hazy to serve as perfect hiding places in the open for the devious. Spoke 19: overlapping information not distinguished.

Spoke 20: flaws: (a) when one simply deals with only one stroke; (b) focuses on only one link; (c) only pays attention to the general idea within that one link; (d) ignores the details of each stroke; (e) connects or overlooks the interrelationships between the strokes and/or links; (f) fails to do a good job with the other links; or (g) ignores them completely. This means one has limited ideas--a set up conveying the wrong intension or message, for inefficiency, and for confusing the receiver. Spoke 21: mis-directed; placed on improper planes of existence; or headed in the wrong direction. Spoke 22: Substituting Connotations as definitions for Denotations. Spoke 23: changing time lines to redistribute African Intellectual property. Spoke 24: failing to expose the truth: Spoke 25: giving bits and pieces of truth. Such people think they are "right" but are actually on the wrong road.
