Below is an excerpt from my first short e-book, titled AMERICA: Fact VS Fiction. Under PenName.
My intent with this writing is set straight our beliefs about the operation of the world, and society, side by side with the very bitter, and painful truths which so many are shying away from, to everyone’s detriment.
AMERICA: Fact VS Fiction
We are privileged enough to carelessly believe that our society is copied by a failed culture. The Romans
But, as we know……
When the Greek scholars Thales, Hippocrates, Pythagoras, Socrates, Plato, and others traveled to Kemet, they studied at the temple-universities Waset and Ipet Isut. Here, the Greeks were inducted into a wide curriculum that encompassed the esoteric as well as the practical.
Thales was the first to go to Kemet. He was introduced to the Kemetic Mystery System — the knowledge which represents the basis of the Kemites’ understanding of the world, which had been developed over the previous 4,500 years. Upon his return, Thales made a name for himself by accurately predicting a solar eclipse and demonstrating how to measure the distance of a ship at sea. He encouraged others to make their way to Kemet to study [source: Texas A&M]. Got that. He was the “student”, not the “teacher.”
In Kemet, Hippocrates, the “Father of Medicine,” learned of disease from the previous explorations of Imhotep, who established diagnostic medicine 2,500 years earlier.
This early renaissance man — priest, astronomer, and physician — was described as “The first figure of a physician to stand out clearly in the mists of antiquity” by the British medical trailblazer William Osler [source: Osler].
In Kemet, Pythagoras, the “Father of Mathematics,” learned calculus and geometry from the Kemetic priests based on a millennia-old papyrus.
“Egypt was the cradle of mathematics,” Aristotle wrote [source: Van Sertima].
The Kemetic education was meant to last 40 years. Although no Greek thinker is known to have made it through the entire process. Pythagoras is believed to have made it the furthest, having studied in Kemet for 23 years
The Greeks seem to have put their own spin on what knowledge they’d learned.
Plato’s education may have expressed it best: “The Kemetic Mystery System is based upon a wide array of human knowledge. It encompasses math, writing, physical science, religion and the supernatural. Requiring tutors to be both priests and scholars”.
Perhaps the aspect of the system that best represents this merger of religion and science is Ma’at.
Ma’at (/mi ‘yat/) is a goddess who embodies the concept of a rational order to the universe. “This idea that the universe is rational … passed from the Egyptians to the Greeks,” writes historian Richard Hooker. The Greeks’ name for this concept was logos. [source: Hooker].
We know much of this culture — thanks to the myriad documents the Kemites left and our ability to translate them using the Rosetta Stone — including the “Fact” that Greeks great scholars studied at the temple-universities there. For their part, the Greeks never attempted to hide where they’d learned about mathematics, astronomy, and architecture. So why don’t we learn about the contributions the Kemites made to the modern world in school today?
One explanation is that while the Greeks’ “view” of the world was based on Kemetic teachings, their “stress” on reason ultimately led to what the world “mistakenly” refers to as the “Age of Enlightenment”, from which we draw our worldview today.
In other words, since the Greeks were the ones who framed our worldview of using reason to investigate our world, we may feel we have no need to credit the Kemites with bestowing upon the Greeks their original education. And since the Kemites’ view of the universe included…to be continued in publication.
