## Cameroon Bassa Cosmology -Nine(9) laws which rule the universe

1-LIJO

COMPLEMENTARY CONTRADICTIONS: Contradiction is the capacity to state the contrary of what is, here and now; and a complement is a quantity needed to make a thing complete. Complementary contradictions will therefore be those contradictions (like light and darkness, hot and cold, man and woman) which, when they come together, are able to create or/and sustain life. Remember that for a fight to take place, both parties must be willing to fight. Each time you indulge yourself in a fight, you enact the law of complementary contradictions.

2- NYINGHA

MOTION: Anything that changes a place is set in motion. Leaves moved by the wind, a dog running... yourself walking apply the law of motion.
There are nine known motions: 1) Vertical motion with acceleration equals gravity equals 9.8 meter per square second downward, 2) Horizontal motion with acceleration equals zero when velocity is constant, 3) Rotational motion, 4) Parabolic motion, 5) Oscillatory motion, 6) Vibratory motion, 7) Torsion motion, 8) Sinusoidal motion, and 9) Wave motion.

3-NJOM

CAUSALITY or CAUSATION: Relationship between the agent of bringing something about and the effects caused by this agent. For example, if the land is wet, it is because it has rained.

4-MAHOL

EVOLUTION: Series of movements (process of change) in a particular direction. When you hear that man evolved from ONE monkey, a process of change had occurred.

5-PUN, MAPUN, or MAPUNA

COMPENSATIONS: Reparative equivalence between effects and causes. For instance, the tremendous strength of a crippled person's arms compensate for the loss of his legs.

6-OT

NATURAL ATTRACTIONS: The natural power to draw toward oneself by emotional and/or aesthetic appeal. It's no secret that women attract men, which says that women have a natural power to draw men toward them by aesthetic appeal.

7-NON, MANON, or TOLAMANON

CYCLES: Period of time occupied by a series of events that repeat themselves regularly and in the same order, a recurring round of events, the seasons for example.

8-NYONGEN

HIERARCHY: Things arranged in ranks, or graded series. Teachers like to apply this law in classrooms when they give grades and rank their students.

Hierarchy is the central law because it's the chemistry law. The periodic chart of the elements is a ranked series.

9-NGWEY

SYMBOLIC CORRESPONDANCES: Agreement between these first eight metaphysical laws at particular moments. When someone beats gravity and say, walks on water, he is applying the law of symbolic correspondences.
