Thinking in Crayola Crayon Colors

Rolling Rainbow Crayons

I am currently taking a course on Ancient Egypt at my college. 'So exciting!' I thought as I finalized my registration. We are in the third week now and that excitement I thought would be there has not emerged as of yet. Don't get me wrong, sitting in a class and listening to an Archeologist/Professor is cool but as of now, we are only covering basic stuff. So, of course, a fellow student brought up that most basic question, "Who were the Ancient Egyptians?" So as to clarify, the professor asked, "Do you mean what race were the Ancient Egyptians?" The student confirmed that's what he meant. The Professor shared with us that he is always asked that question by the second class (this was the first class). The first thing he said was, "Look at their statues. That's what they looked like. They were African people, Black African peoples. The people who inhabit the area now are not the Ancient Egyptians."

The student, confused, then asked, "How come they look white in drawings?" The Professor then mentioned that the Egyptians did not view color as we do today. In art, human beings are depicted in various colors-white, red, blue... Then I mentioned green also, since Osiris is depicted with green skin to show fertility. He said that every color symbolizes something much deeper than mere skin pigmentation.

The professor was happy to clarify any misconceptions with regard to the origin of the Ancient Egyptians because, as he mentioned, there are many old books written by Europeans, that should be burned, that falsely claim that Egyptians had an European origin. This was all part of a plan to establish European dominance, by fooling the masses into believing that the achievements of these people were due to their dominant European intelligence.

For the past three classes, the student who brought up the question, still won't let it go. Every little thing he learns, he tries to use that as evidence that the Ancient Egyptians were European. To appease him, I believe, the professor told him that Ancient Greece and Rome did have contact with the Egyptians in their later period, as well as other civilizations.

It's unfortunate that we as human beings think in Crayola Crayon Colors. The human mind is so powerful, it is an enigma to scientists. Yet we demean it by thinking in basic black, white, yellow and red. How about maroon and pewter? Just joking.

Nonetheless, I am enjoying my class. I will keep you posted.

Black History Month!

Metropolitan Museum of Art
1000 5th Ave at 82nd Street
Saturday, February 22
12 Noon - 3 PM
$30 for Adults; $20 for Students over 12 

Generally considered one of the "Big Three" museums for Ancient Kemetic (Ancient Egyptian) artifacts, the Metropolitan Museum of Art has one of the largest collections in the world.  Included among the 30,000 artifacts the MET boasts are one of the best examples of cippi stelae (used to create "holy water" prior to the Christian era) and the entire Temple of Dendur.  The Temple of Dendur was moved to the MET, block by block, from the Nubian border during the creation of the Aswan High Dam.

Unfortunately, the museum also subtlety subverts the African origins of our Kemetic ancestors.  This tour will provide a general overview of Ancient Kemetic history while re-contextualizing Kemet as an African nation.  It's contributions to world civilization are unparalleled.

We will accomplish 3 objectives on this tour:
1) Develop an intimate portrayal of our ancient ancestors
2) Describe the 5 major periods of Ancient Egyptian History and Art
3) Identify and debunk the museum's subtle portrayal of the Ancient Egypt as a non-African nation

The Pyramid Code


Sorry, the full Youtube documentary was taken down since I posted it here.  This Hulu link should work.

Is it possible that the ancient Kemites (Egyptians) were more technologically advanced than we are?

Could it be that the pyramids were created to be fully functioning electro-magnetic power plants?

These questions and more will be answered in this documentary.

It is quite Informative and I am looking forward to the comments about this intriguing documentary.

The Tongue of the Egyptians-NYC Tour Alert!

Have you ever wondered what the Egyptian tongue sounded like?  Anthropologists and the like have said that the language is completely lost but is it really when the peoples still exist? 

Tomorrow (Saturday, April 27th) at my favorite New York museum, the Museum of Modern Art (MET), historians Anika and Jabari Osaze from the Center for the Restoration of Ma'at, will be conducting a tour, an amazing teaching experience, showing you how to translate the ancient Egyptian/Kemetic language. 

This tour will focus on:

* The history of the language

* Royal titulary

* Formulaic texts

* Original terms and their Greek misnomers

Did you know that the language is called the Medu Neter?  And what does that mean?  Come out and find out!

See below for details on this special educational tour.  I will most definitely be there!

Writer In Progress

It's official.  I have not been writing on this blog on a regular basis and it eats away at me but I have a perfectly logical explanation.  Don't go anywhere.  Hear me out.  I am in the process of writing a novel; Historical Fiction based in Ancient Egypt (Kemet).  I'm excited about it to say the least.  Every chance I get (which is not much in this busy life) I devote to writing this novel. 

I can't reveal too much about it but I will say it has the potential of being epic!  I am following the life of a real person in history and just adding a pinch of my own imaginative flair.  I hope that it will peek the interest of many who have a taste for all things Egyptian but find that their appetites are never really satisfied due to the rarity of good Egyptian inspired fiction that springs from authenticity rather than Party City.  Looking at the high volume of visitors, it just may.

I will drop a few lines from time to time but with a self-imposed deadline of April 4th 2013, I've got to get a move on.  I wish I could hang a sign from my nose or stick one on my forehead that reads, Writer In Progress, so that people I come in contact with would automatically give me quiet time to whimsically word weave.  Or so I wish.  As I get closer to finishing, I will reveal a little more about the novel.  Alright, I'm diving back in, sign on forhead, word weaving tools in hand.

Lady Lotus Blossom

                       The Pharoah knows not what he possesses in his right hand.

A lady lotus blossom, freshly picked from the valley. 

With her fragrance, I am intoxicated.

The air she breathes is most fortunate. 

The mud she steps in becomes gold. 

The rain that bathes her supple skin is holy water most blessed by Amon.

For I have seen within the bejeweled eyes of the lotus blossom, Hathor, the goddess of love. 

Eyes that are now hiding sorrow. 

Eyes that are now being kissed by the pharaoh. 

Eyes not enough to be a queen’s but a mere concubine. 

Eyes that are mine. 

I will challenge the depths of the Nile and wrestle with Leviathan in order to receive
one more scent of her. 

I will bring the morning on my back so that my lady lotus blossom may open once more and praise Amon for the beauty he has anointed her.

Original poem, 2002
