Wisdom
Wisdom was born into a family of musicians and poets. He was first exposed to hip hop culture at the Ernest Ingold Boys Club in the Haight-Ashbury district of San Francisco, after moving there with his mother at age 6.

Wisdom found refuge in writing and performing his first songs at an early age. Rooted in life experience, his diverse style incorporates lyrics that are streetwise with a political edge. He explains: “world issues and human suffering were common topics of discussion in our household, as well as exposure to many types of music and cultures. My music is a natural extension of this.”

After launching a successful clothing line called Wisdom Creations, he was invited to perform with Cyber Octave/Virgin Records recording artists Medicine Drum on their 2002album release “Original Face” and toured the world with them for two years. Returning from tour, Wisdom felt that his lyrical content was evolving to reflect his hopes of inspiring social change on a global level. In his words, “if we believe, we can achieve anything. It’s all possible.”

After producing a new studio album, Wisdom’s natural next step was to assemble a group of musicians, which was soon dubbed the Wisdom Creations Band, and now includes bass prodigy and son of Tito Garcia (former lead singer of Santana), Luis Garcia; keyboardist Matt Berkeley; award winning gospel drummer Thomas McCree; world-renowned percussionist Mingo Lewis, Jr.; Chicago underground lyricist and spoken word artist Seasunz, and the newest edition, DJ Cocheze from KRS-One’s Temple of Hip Hop.

Wisdom’s unique blend of conscious lyrics with live hip-hop and reggae continues to gain attention nationwide. He won the category of “Best Hip Hop/Rap” in both the 2005 and 2006 North Bay Music Awards and was labeled “one of Nor Cal’s favorites” by URB Magazine (Massv Global Get down, Dec 2004). He also appeared in the 2006 documentary film “The Indigo Evolution” alongside philosophical greats Ram Dass and Don Miguel Ruiz sharing his views on the potential of gifted children to change the world. Chris Deckker, founder of EarthDance International Festival (www.earthdance.org), affirmed that Wisdom is “one of the most progressive and conscious bands to emerge from the hip-hop culture. “Truly an electrifying performance!”, said Carol Bruno, lead producer of the legendary Reggae on the River festival (www.reggaeontheriver.com), agreed. She beamed: “Wisdom is conscious and a lyrical, cutting edge hip-hop laced with reggae dancehall beats… Look out for these guys!”

His music can be sampled and purchased at http://www.wisdomcreations.com. In 2006, the band released the highly anticipated album, “Growth and Elevation,” which was recorded both in Prairie Sun Studios in Northern California and Moodswing Records in Hollywood, CA. It features Jamaica’s own VP recording artist Warrior King as well as female vocalists Jemini and Nasambu, and was produced in part by former engineer for Baby Face, BigChris Flores. As a result of an artistic transformation which followed the recent deaths of both his mother and grandmother, the new album transcends any previous musical production Wisdom has released.

The Golden Science of Life and the “Mathematics of Love”
Short Article by:
Chad Ashley Vandenberg
It is interesting to note that an early but growing body of evidence seems to suggests that at the very same moment that we feel, emotionally, a wave of love, all of the body’s bio-rhythms move into one harmonious rhythm that relates to itself according to the mathematics of infinity. The brain-waves, breath, cranial sacral pulse, heartbeat, and heart wave harmonics form patterns during peak experiences based on the same mathematics that result in fractal imagery when you put it into a computer.
Any emotional sensation that feels like your heart has wings, allows the brain-waves, breath, cranial sacral pulse and heartbeat, and heart wave harmonics to form an intricate pattern that allows each ofthe bio-rhythm frequencies to add and multiply their harmonic scales to a “zero- point” of infinite frequency. Some researchers claim that when the harmonic frequencies generated by the pressure waves of the heartbeat demonstrate this fractal geometry, then the waves synergize and “phase-lock” with the cranial sacral pulse which then “pumps” the brainstem, causing the amygdala to secrete potent neuro-chemistries into the high brain neo-cortex as food for the pineal gland which the Egyptians called the “seat of the soul”. Another way of saying that when the head and heart are in harmony, our heart spreads wings and we are free!! Emerging research into the nature of consciousness reveals that the feeling of love produces a mathematic relationship between all the frequencies of the body’s biorhythm’s that allows them to “co-here”, (occupying the same space and time) without interference or friction. The mathematic relationship that allows this seemingly impossibility is called phi. Phi is a relationship between parts that allows the parts to “share the same space” and “go to the zero-point” like only lovers can. Everywhere love is present it leaves a “fingerprint” that can be measured in terms of “phi”. This fingerprint of love can be found in the mathematics of galaxies, ancient pyramids, plants, nautilus shells, and every aspect of our own physical bodies. Since the days of the first mathematicians and philosophers in ancient times, this ratio has been referred to as the “golden ratio” or the “Golden Mean” by Pythagoras. This ratio, present at the moment of experiencing Love, is the same ratio that allows the mathematics of infinity to be expressed in physical form. This amazing ratio is called the “golden ratio” because gold is the element that perfectly expresses the fractal nature that all life uses to create a form capable of holding self-awareness.
