IT ends…TO BE –or- as a Tale ...

A blog for documents and studies on the development of

Human "Consciousness", to help and

promote the process of rational reflection.


The Highlight here will be, working towards the high objectives of harmony in the Ethiopian Social-Reality: PEACE, freedom of CULTURE, scientific PERFECTION and tolerant FAITH. Any knowledge, without the slightest touch of dogmatism; whose purpose is enlightening and freeing the human species to celebrate its full liberty and eventual perfection, is always welcome.

Ato Tekalign Gedamu

Ato Tekalign Gedamu's (TG) Book: 

Republicans on the Throne (2011)

Impression: A Beautiful Mind out of Ethiopia!

Simply beautiful, like the green tree; but still waiting for the blossoming of its flowers in the coming spring: - Moving - too moving that I have to restrain myself from making any form of critical review/1; full of vision and emotions, entertaining political anecdotes with serious messages skittering to incite self-reflections; and culturally embedded with down-to earth pragmatism.

Ato TG is A PROTYPE OF AN ETHIOPIAN, who restored again  my confidence in the reflection capacity of the Ethiopian Intellectual; after having perceived so far, all types of rather frustrating "dogmatic discourses out of the box", from different corners of the active Ethiopian political class. An Ethiopian Intellectual prototype, I crave for our NEW ETHIOPIA, in the true meaning of the Word, empathic, honest, open and concerned for the Ethiopian community as a whole with all its cultural diversity and the individual as well, with his healthy and keen roots in the past; ready to blossom in the modern future of our generation. 

Here is someone with multidimensional experience through all walks of life (child, young, mature and honored, bright and dark /a short prison sojourn too, not to forget), including his own youthful radical world outlooks he trespassed, and professional, domestic and global career, beginning way back in the ancient regime right up to today. An intellectual, demonstrating the tremendous maturity he acquired through observing, and vested with higher (ministerial included) posts interfacing all the regimes and their global affiliations, this generation has witnessed. - Regimes which, in the last half century ransacked our community, all in their ways, claiming to bring about a presumable change and development.  
We know the culminating summary product of this “change” in the human misery and the political crisis, the Horn of Africa suffers these days... once again and again... Ethiopia amidst, as the big regional political player! /3

Every concerned Ethiopian who has experienced or would like to get to know all the ups and the downs of the last half century, to whatever political "breed“, "kin",  "creed" or "ethics" subscribed, should not miss reading TG's personal account, which can be taken to be a micro-critical display of our own recent Ethiopian history. 

An authentic and honest account of an Ethiopian intellectual, who shares his life experience; to promote the well-being of our common HOMELAND –ETHIOPIA; full of insights and substance for reflection; be it between the lines or in his ingenious résumé, - Wither Ethiopia- (chapter 20 + 21); especially helpful for the bewildered political class of our nation; with all its skirmish and tiny problems having difficulty to come at peace within itself! - Valuable, without exception, YES - for all sectors of our political class, to come out of their tight political boxes to deliberate together in the formation of their common nation-state - ETHIOPIA! 

Ato TG ‘s account is  the fruit of a life-long experience worth all respect and attention. The sort of "Intellectual Bridge" Ethiopia needs to come out of its today's intellectual and political abyss.

Summing up in a word:
If any concerned Ethiopian citizen is missing an authentic insider-witness story on the turmoil of the Ethiopian State and community during the last half century, he/she has to read Ato TG's memoires /2!

ባጭሩ ፦
አቶ ተካልኝ ገዳሙ በዚህ መልክታቸው፦ 
የኢትዮጵያን የፓለቲካ የልብ ትርታ ከማንም በላቀ ጥልቀት አግኝተውታል ባይ ነኝ! 
ምስጋና ይድረሳቸውና ታድያ እንግሊዝኛው ለማይቀናቸው ወገኖቻችን ባማርኛም በተጨማሪ ቢያዳርሱት ምንኛ በጠቀመ ያሰኛል!!!

1/ I somehow miss an articulate opinion of  Ato TG on the role played by IMF and World Bank in the development policy of Africa...

A Flash of the Day (Archive)

1. Working on the big "GOOD SENSE": The sense of Beauty.
( via cf. "The Logic of Sense" /Deleuze) (9/2010)

2. በትርታ ይጀምራል፤ ትር ትር ይልና ይተርታል ወይንም ይተረታል ወይንም ተረት ይሆንና ይተረተራል፤ ተረት ይሆናል።(9/2010)

3. Degrading the other to "none-will" is inhuman and counter productive... The human point is to come to a common "Big-Will"(10/2010)

4. The "inner universe" (mystics) to the "outer universe" (physics) is allegorically related as the conscious mind to the virus in the human body. (6/10/2010)

5. Feeling is the language of the "inner Universe". Music/arts is the interface between the "inner" and "outer" universe.

6. Demoralization is a disgusting political tool -an expression of inhumanity employed in a social evolution, indicating the inhumanity of the employer! A disaster! (7/10/2010).

7. "In Girard's language, the law order is "mythical" and as such obeys the logic of the founding murder." (cf. Peter Robert Stork; 2005)

8. "Wenn sich zwei streiten, freut sich der Dritte"/
When two people quarrel, a third rejoices... This will be a legacy; and in the 21st century, "Wenn sich zwei einigen, freut sich der Dritte" may take over. /A mutual understanding of two people rejoices the third/.

9. My quotation of the Day (8.11.10):

Baldwin’s thought: ("The Baldwin effect")
“It is as inexorable as the colour of his eyes and the shape of his nose. He is born into a system of social relationships just as he is born into a certain quality of air. As he grows in body by breathing the one, so he grows in mind by absorbing the other.’ (Baldwin, 1906: 69-70)

If "I AM" the observer (the conscious entity) so that the quanta of matter/mass (the wave function) would collapse to be a particle /the particle object), enhancing IT to the phase of THE Existing Reality.
Couldn't I -The Self- hope and help the spiritual energy/ my consciousness/ as well, to extend the transformed energy /After Life/to collapse into that existence of "THAT Beyond" Life (1). Life pertaining to "intelligent" energy (spiritual beings in the sphere of the Akashic Field), as the reflection of the "intelligent" matter or mass (human beings in the sphere of "thermodynamics" or gravity ). 17.11.10

(1) like J.Wheeler's Model of "the participating observer" in the Universe.

11. Forget Time! And mind Your Mind only (24.11.10).
I.e. "Talk about "time out of mind"!"(1)

12. Wikileaks in Amharic philo-play:

የዊቂ -ሊቅ ሰዋ ስው ...ባልታወቀ ነገር፤ሊቅ ፤ቂል ፤ ቅልቅል ፤ ቅል፤ ቀላል ቂል ወይስ ....በቃኝ ብሎ፤ ቅንጣት ቅብ -ብቅል ቀልቦ ፤ወደ ብቃት ሲቃ፤ ሲግዋዝ ይሁን ፤ ሲያንቀጠቅጥ ወይስ ተቀላቅሎ ሲያንቀለቅል።ያልታወቀ ነገር።

13. Gates and Centres:

Life , nature and actually the whole Universe know nothing about Top and Bottom or Up and Down. There are just centres in reality. Centres and Centres with all of them having their Gates, Gates leading to the Centres. What is wrong with mankind, always with the tick for tops and bottoms or ups and downs and not centres, but fixed to the gates, without the moral courage to move towards the centres -to build the symphony
- the symphony in the SPHERE.


- The SPHERE of IDEAS is THE WORD of the SOURCE. THE WORD - The PLAY where this ASHORE and that BEYOND of the HARMONY is eternally tuned to exist in the SYMPHONY of ALL, flowing and floating like in the "Ballet piece of Joseph Strauss " -the Dynamiden Waltz- with every being offering its harmonious "musical touch". (cf. The Harmony Model)

14. መቃብር ላይ የሚፃፍ /+++ተጨማሪ!/

መቃብር ላይ የሚፃፍ (ከርፖርተር የተገኘ)

ጥብቅ ማሳሰቢያ ሸክላን ለምትሠሩ፤
እዚህ መቃብር ላይ አፈር አትዝገኑ፡፡
ሲነድ ሲቃጠል ሲጨስ በመኖሩ፣

ሲቃጠል ለሚኖር፣
ለጀበና መሥሪያ አይሆንም አፈሩ፡፡

(አንድ ከሚመለከተው የተጨመረ!
ከመቃብር በፊት)

ሰው ለመስራት ብቻ ከፍቀደ አየሩ
ክህነት ካላችሁ አሰቡ መርምሩ
ተራ ከገባችሁ ዘክሩ አስዘክሩ
ያልሆነው እንዲሆን ምከሩ ሞክሩ
ሽቀጣና ሽቀት እንዳይሆን ሃገሩ
አንድ ቀን እንደሆን አይቀር መቃ-ብሩ።

15. Human DIGNITY:

21st century is the era of Liberation Movements for Human Dignity, encompassing all other Movements, to make them superfluous – non-dogmatic, non-religious and non-ethnic with the great Common Collective Will for Human Empathy!

11 0220 11 - EGYPT's Dignity Day, the Landmark for a radical break with all Tyrannies!

Thanks to Tunisia -The Heroic Pioneer of Freedom!

እንደዚህ ሆነና ...እስኪሆን ይሆናል!
