The Seventh Generation

The Seventh Generation

“When we consider existence we see that the mineral, vegetable, animal, and human world’s are all in need of an educator. If the earth is not cultivated, it becomes a jungle where useless weeds grow; but if a cultivator comes and tills the ground, it produces crops which nourish living creatures. It is evident, therefore, that the soul needs the cultivation of the farmer. Consider the trees: if they remain without a cultivator they will be fruitless…”
– `Abdu’l-Bahá

“What you gonna do, give up…
Dear Cee, Dear Boosie…
This is Lil Toochie…
I love you because your life is like a movie…
You see my daddy got killed and my mama’s on drugs,
So I’m alone and I gets no love,
… and I might even join a gang…
I’m surprised you remember me…

You need to educate yo’ brain…
…never stimulate your pain…

…take all yo’ pain and turn it into thug motivation…
…Think about the consequences…

…Read yo’ Bible…

…Read Psalm 51…”
– Boosie Badazz, “Dear Cee, Dear Boosie,” Penitentiary Chances

Victim of society, you need to educate your brain in ways…
… ways that they don’t tell you in school…
You see my life is like a movie, like yours,
Like you, I’m supposed to be dead…

…told to hide our fire behind a white mask…

Boy, it’s okay…
…girl, it’s okay to be angry…
…don’t hide, don’t run, don’t let them shut you down…

Sage works, burning world needs that sweet smell,
When the drones were flying over those dogs,
I too was a small child, I ran from the land,
I was scared, I was scared at what we’ve become,

Cybernetic Rome, grassroots drying up,
The grass feels the heat,
You do I see it, I see your face,
It’s okay dear love…

…the light there in that smile…
…it’s possible to fly over walls that separate…

…they gonna build a wall on the Southside like they did in Jesus’s home,
Bethlehem, was where they all learned this,
What you see here is a failure to communicate,
It’s a time when teachers have to lie to please the state,
Everyone knows every child is being left behind,
No child left behind starts when you are the teacher,
I want to hear what you have to say,
Turn the tables around and speak…

What do you have to say?

What have you seen?

My seven-year-old Lakota angel what do you love?

I’ll give you a piggy back ride to the river to place tobacco in the river to know,
Let me pray with you, forget the past, I want to remember through your eyes,

You were the one who discovered that electrons flow through the Sun Glass,
Without wires touching,
They make movies about girls like you,
Space-time waves behind your spirit and you see ghosts…

Interstellar schooled that genius father,
I saw it, and one day you will too,
Space pilot grounded to grow food on a dying planet,
He had to be brought down to earth to listen to you…

I know what it’s like to be raised by a physicist,
Little girl, you are a kinder better teacher, speak and don’t hide,
I would do anything to save you, the Seventh Generation,
This generation, the cycle breaks, no more pain…

As much as I struggle to listen, please speak,
Black holes offer a chance for ghosts to speak,

…tell me about them,
Tell me about spirits, tell me about angels, tell me about God…

What came out when they bulldozed those sites?

I saw ghosts and evil spirits in the machines,
Ghosts in the shell…

The earth was there just sitting peaceful and true,
Let me step back and rest for a while in a farm,
Let me go away for a while a month or a year or two,
My dear I’m coming back for the next lesson though,
I cannot wait, I’m working on it already,

The electric world peace prayer

A prayer social network for our waters…

About kayaerbil

I am a Berkeley educated chemistry Ph.D. who is moving into the area of working on developing appropriate technology for communities that are subjected to socio-economic oppression. The goal is to use simple and effective designs to empower people to live better lives. Currently, I am working with Native Americans on Pine Ridge, the Lakota reservation in South Dakota. I am working with a Native owned and run solar energy company. We are currently working on building a compressed earth block (CEB) house that showcases many of the technologies that the company has developed. The CEB house is made of locally derived resources, earth from the reservation. The blocks are naturally thermally insulating, keeping the house cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Eventually, a solar air heater and photovoltaic panels will be installed into the house to power the home and keep it warm, while preserving the house off the grid. A side project while in Pine Ridge is a solar computer. I hope to learn about blockchain encryption software for building microgrids. In addition, it is an immediate interest of mine to involve local youth in technology education.
