All I wanted to share this feedback from Dr. Kamalu that he emailed me.

Next discussion I would like to give more time to addressing one of the final questions raised by Institute for African Studies in relation to the charge of "essentialising" a broad range of African belief systems. As I said last night one is not claiming that there are not many varied belief systems among African language groups. However, returning back to Kemetic traditions we are more able to appreciate that there are essential aspects of African thought that are common, so that although we are not saying there is one absolute African worldview, these common aspects can be viewed systemically, so that in a broad sense Africans do have a view of the world that considers all of the essential areas of universal philosophical concern that is more or less unique to the continent when we look at ideas of the person and the cosmos. Last night I gave the examples of ideas of the person as multiple selves through the continent and in antiquity, and the emergence of the creation of the world from a primeval inundation. But I could have also referred to the way in which Africans use number and divination, the cycle of the continuity of the living the ancestors and the unborn, the kinship of human community and the plant kingdom as shown in the planting of the umbilical cord the with seed of the mango tree, etc . I earlier had also given a further example, such as the aloofness of the supreme being through the continent and in antiquity and the separation of earth/sky, heaven/earth, visible world/invisible world as illustrated in African mythology. There are so many aspects of African thought among different African language groups that are common, it would be wrong to dismiss the correlations and this would only serve to make African beliefs appear more disparate and nonsensical and seemingly without system or logical basis, which is not the case. I hope to cover this better in our next discussion.

Hey Kevlew! I just finished listening to part 2 yesterday. Great interview! In the book I found the concept of multiple selves very interesting, especially in regards to schizophrenia. I think having this understanding would be very beneficial in Afrikan psychology. I'm trying to understand this concept better myself. Are these "selves" different aspects of the Supreme Being that come together in our bodies to help us to fulfill our destinies? Could they be equated to the chakra system? Also, would the heart self (thinking/feeling part of our selves) be equivalent to the ego, and the ancestral self be equivlalent to our DNA?
