Indigeny and Energetics - Historical Framework



This table describes the general and fluid timeline for the three main historical periods of indigeny and energetics. Exact years of demarcation are not as important as the ramifications of the functional dynamics of these time periods. The table is provided mainly to illustrate the progression of these periods and to identify the timeline. The table content is provided below for better reading.


.......................................

Sovereign Indigeny:
society internally directed and developed on familial land masses, communalism, organic communications systems Evolutionary Energetics:
spiritual technologies created and developed in tune with natural environment; use of ritual, herbology, vibrational/ energy healing techniques

Evolutionary Energetics:
spiritual technologies created and developed in tune with natural environment; use of ritual, herbology, vibrational/ energy healing techniques

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Disintegrated Indigeny:
society effected by increasingly globalized capitalism, cultural norms and traditions subverted and repressed, the machine age is borne out of capitalist demand for control of resources and over-production, globalization of mass communications technology and sub-cultural dissemination, environmentalism emerges as a political force
Devolutionary,
Revolutionary Energetics:
spiritual technologies supplanted with alien religious/ideological content, radical shifts in relations to natural environment & human health practices;
beginnings of reestablishment of and reeducation to traditional thought and practice, wholism, cultural compositing

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Unified Indigeny:
Traditional Indigeny resurfaces in newly organized and interdependent, democratic structures, communalism and socialism, organic communications systems aided by digital communications technology;
(Organization of African Unity, International Indian Treaty Council, Organization of American States, Cultural Survival, New England Aboriginal Council – organizational examples of attempts at or movements of or toward unified indigeny and/or socio-political unification)
Revolutionary Energetics:
universal expressions of Indigenous Spiritual Technologies (Some’ et al); cultural compositing; naturo-spiritual/humanist traditions reestablished deepening concepts of wholism, adding external nature dynamic to concept of mind/body/spirit connection

g Definitions of some of the above terms (i.e., cultural compositing) will be provided in a later post. Be free to email me or post questions here. Thank you.

A recent television documentary uncovered the presence of hominid bones in Africa that dated back to 5 million years ago. Given that this information is correct, it would not change the implications of the above timeline except to deepen and embolden the statement that indigeny can now be said to have been the primary human dynamic for yet another 2 million years than previously understood.
