Is melanin’s value a thought bomb? “Melanin” is the title of a song by Kenyan musical group Sauti Sol teamed up with Pantoranking who hails from Nigeria. Since the video made its debut online two weeks ago it has gotten nearly three million views. The idea of a melanin thought bomb suggests that melanin being worth over $350 a gram more than gold is a tool of quantum mechanics. When unleashed it expands perception and awareness of those who not only internalize its power but also share it with others.
These are fascinating times we are living in. Melanin the aromatic biopolymer and organic semiconductor that makes Black people black is worth $396 a gram. It is worth more than gold, more valuable than silver, more valuable than palladium, more valuable than platinum and more valuable than rhodium. Are the foregoing facts the equivalent of a thought bomb?
Swami Panchadasi gives a view of a “thought bomb” with “The Human Aura: Astral Colors and Thought Forms.” He proclaims that:
In cases of thought forms sent forth by explosive emotion, the thought form will actually take the form of a bomb which literally explodes when it reaches the presence of the person toward whom it is aimed. Every person has experienced this feeling of a thought bomb having been exploded in his near vicinity having been directed by a vigorous personality. This form is frequently found in the thought forms sent out by a strong earnest vigorous Orator.
Panchadasi is apparently one of several pseudonyms for William Walker Atkinson. Atkinson wrote several books on occult or new thought.
The mystical aspects of a “thought bomb” are even more deliberate in “Path of Destruction (Star Wars:Darth Bane book 1). Darth Bane uses a thought bomb to unleash “the pure destructive energy of the dark side.” The thought bomb was the combined will of many Sith Lords. The secret ancient ritual of the Sith was acquired by Darth Bane Bane had joined the Sith “Brotherhood of Darkness” to avoid imprisonment for killing a gambler who lost to him. He learns many Sith secrets after training Githany, a former Jedi turned Sith, in order to battle the Jedi “Army of Light.”
The thought bomb is the result of joining the minds of powerful Sith lords. The use of the thought bomb was destructive. Although it was powerful enough to destroy the Jedi knights in its range, it would also obliterate the Sith lords as well.
Though melanin as a thought bomb is purely rhetorical, the ability of a self inflicted use of destructive energy comes through an event which took place on March 23, 2017. That day a number of “social media miscreants” took to twitter posting about missing black girls and “melanin thieves.” We swatted the melanin challenged inferiority complex with posting of the blog post “The Melanin Harvesting Urban Legend: A Hoax Deconstructed, A Myth Busted, A Scam Exposed. After that the social media miscreants ceased their inane foolosophy of empty action. Suffice it to say they were the victims of their own “melanin thought bomb.”
