the following is the second to the last paragraph of my home page introduction.
[...some might consider this an attempt to reconciled the "battle" between spirituality, science and effective and applicable social policies. i would have to agree with them; because i do believe that there is significant and substantial congruous between all three perspectives. in addition, i believe that each perspective has a 'wholeness within it's own domain' that has yet to be duly appreciated. for example, with regards to science, i believe that there is a "theory of everything" that unifies the understanding of all physical phenomena. i believe that there is a ancient common thread that ties all religious and spiritual experiences together. and finally, i believe there is a basic social model that would allow all cultures and thus individuals, to strive to reach their optimum potentials.]
in short, expansion theory, as described by mark mccutcheon in his book, "the final theory; rethinking our scientific legacy" is the best explanation for an all inclusive and logical explanation of the workings of the physical laws of nature.
i believe that the biblical texts depiction of the post flood population, of one people, of one language and one speech were the pinnacle of human society, as they communed with and in the knowledge of The Cause. as these families, tribes and nations spread out all over the earth, their connection with each other and their Supreme Being, dwindled. as it became easier/more convenient to worship what was seen and could be touched, they made gods for themselves; including elevating the descendants of the nephilum to god status. every group had the knowledge of making land marks. whether these be pyramids, mounds, or erected stones, knowing where you were and identifying yourself with your location was paramount for these early migrant and true settlers. as the life spans became shorter and shorter, knowledge also faded, dwindled and changed. whether oral or written accounts, eventually, truths became myths, facts became superstitions and the human experience became a global patchwork of metaphorical and allegorical stories and belief systems and religions.
anthropology, genetic science; nucleus dna of paternal lineage and mitochondria dna of maternal lineage (through daughters), fossils, and human remains all point to the human population migrating out of africa, twice. this second group were able to build the necropolis city of the great pyramids and sphinx in gizah, egypt. the collective human ingenuity of about 2000 yrs of observing the patterns of nature. there were no malls to shop at, no night clubs, no ball games, no political rallies, no 9-5 jobs to distract these folks from pulling their knowledge and wisdom together.
they had the knowledge of city building as cain built a city, and the boat building from as noah and his family built the ark. since these first generation post flood people still lived for hundreds of years, they kept the knowledge and expanded upon it. all math, cosmology and science comes from this post flood population. nimrod, son of cush, son of ham, son of noah, was one of the major contributors of the knowledge not dying out. i suspect he was one of the first to resume such building after the generation who actually built the great pyramids and city. babel, erech, akkad, calneh, (mesopotamia), nineveh, resen...it is from here that all arithmetic, math, geometry, trigonometry has spread. every culture that resume pyramid building, reestablished the math skills and knowledge. those families, tribes and nations who maintained an apprehension to resuming such extravagant architect, maintained a simple lifestyle, which up to relatively recently, out lived the ancient empires. the fact that we still have isolated tribes of simple of the land people, attests to the wisdom and health of such lifestyles. it is no wonder that industrialized people are realizing with great regret, that industrialized lifestyles are deadly; causing chronic illnesses even unto the genetic level.
it is said that the ancient africans (post flood and 2nd out of africa migrated populations) had a code of living called ma' at.
MA'AT: the African ethical principles collectively embracing the values of truth, harmony, justice, reciprocity and cosmological order.
Ma'at: Goddess of Truth; Truth & Order (Richard Hooker, World Civilizations, WSU): http://www.wsu.edu:8000/~dee/EGYPT/MAAT.HTM
Kemetic texts "paint a powerful portrait of ancient Egyptian moral and ethical standards. Central to the ancient Egyptian ethos is the concept of Ma’at" (Mutere). Ma'at was the ancient Egyptian goddess who personified "truth" and "justice," and "is identified by a feather against which She weighs each person's soul in her hall of judgment. Egyptian priests would draw the feather of Ma'at on their tongues in green dye to give their words truth and creative power" (Mutere).
From the Oriental Institute (Univ. of Chicago):
Image of judgment of the soul before Osiris:
from Book of the Dead: http://www-oi.uchicago.edu/OI/MUS/HIGH/OIM_10486.html
(Ptolemaic Period, ca. 332-30 B.C. Papyrus and ink)
"The Book of the Dead was a collection of spells, hymns, and prayers intended to secure for the deceased safe passage to and sojourn in the other world."
The "ethical principles of Ma’at" shape "the key idea in the traditional African approach to life," recurring "in most African societies as the influence of right and righteousness, justice and harmony, balance, respect, and human dignity," according to Asante and Abarry (59). Most traditional African religions perpetuate the "fundamental principles of harmony between humans, humans and the environment, and humans and the spirit world" (Asante and Abarry 59).
From the Carnegie Museum of Natural History:
"Of all the deities, the goddess Maat was the most important in perpetuating the status quo. The Egyptians believed that when the gods formed the land of Egypt out of chaos, Maat was created to embody truth, justice, and the basic orderly arrangement of the world. Maat personified the perfect state of the god-created world, and all that people had to do in order to live and prosper in the world was to honor and preserve Maat. On a national level, it was the king's responsibility to preserve Maat through daily offerings given at the temples. On an individual level, the goal of every Egyptian was to lead a honorable life that would allow entrance into the afterlife after death."

i believe that all of those families, tribes and nations which migrated out of egypt and populated the earth that second time, and who did not choose to resume the practice of city and architect building were more likely to keep such codes of social engagement, cohesiveness, respect and peace and thus security.
the indigenous peoples of today often called aboriginal people, for the most part, have out lasted the architectural empires, because they maintained these types of codes in some general fashion. as many cite to the war strategy of invaders like alexander and columbus along with their diseases that they carried to these pristine people's, as their primary advantage over these original true settlers, i believe it was more likely the original people's passive and amiable nature of kindness , respect and justice that made them easy targets for violent aggressors. i believe that all such people who kept this code were over run by violent invaders of the exploding population of albinos and their migrating admixed offsprings/descendants into far east asia, russia, the middle east, the mediterranean, europe and eventually the most western continents and islands.
the great pyramid and sphinx city
the great pyramid and sphinx city is where all of our current micro sciences have their birth. the ancient africans of egypt, encompassing the entire world's population at that time (thus way before the arab, white skinned africans of later greece's and rome's invasions) did not build shrines/tombs unto individual men. this unique human population were a most cohesive people, who had mastered the macro and social sciences of their universe and who shared one belief system in a Supreme Being.
the gret pyramid and sphinx city of gizzah were built as cosmological landmarks and and as documentation of their great and unmatched, collective intellectual and cooperative prowess. this is the location of the 2nd out of africa migration, and should be dated just prior to the beginning of the great continental divide (which may have necessarily began at a faster rate than what is being experienced now). this is the 2nd beginning for all existing knowledge, philosophies, religions, sciences,cultures, peoples, tribes and nations.
Genius Of The Great Pyramid
by Kwaku Person-Lynn
One of the fiercest, most brutal battles in academia is whether Afrikans were the original inhabitants of Kemet (Egypt). Kemet of today is not like Kemet of old. Arabs invaded it during the 7th century A.D., and continue their occupation. The reason the debut of the original inhabitants is so vital, the Nile Valley, which reached its zenith in Kemet, is the birthplace of civilization, whereby world civilizations evolved. It is the place where philosophy, science, mathematics, technology, engineering, religion, education, architecture, astronomy, parenting and a host of other human creations began. For Black people to garner the credit for these innovations goes against everything ever taught in Western civilization.
Careers have been ruined for defending such a position. Dr. Yosef ben-Jochannan, known as Dr. Ben, one of the world's leading Afrikan Kemetologists (Egyptologists), has been dismissed from several universities for teaching this perspective. Dr. Chiekh Anta Diop, the world's greatest scientist in this area of study, and the scientific father for Afrikan World Studies, had his first doctoral dissertation rejected at the University of Paris for addressing this subject. However, his book, Civilization Or Barbarism: An Authentic Anthropology, though a very scientific and scholarly work, is perhaps the best literature available outlining unequivocal proof that Afrikans were indeed the original inhabitants of Kemet, and created all of the above.
Part of the physical proof stands in Kemet today, the great pyramid of Gizeh, built for the Pharaoh Khufu (2589-2566 B.C.E.), called Cheops by the Greeks. It was the tallest building on planet earth for 4000 years (481 feet). What makes this structure so magnificent is the philosophy, thought and planning that went into creating it. For instance, astronomically, it is a replica of the northern hemisphere. It would take a very complicated mathematical explanation to show this, but the book Secrets Of The Great Pyramid by Peter Tompkins, one of the best researched books on this topic and very difficult to find, reveals a simple mathematical explanation. He states, "Each flat face of the Pyramid was designed to represent one curved quarter of the northern hemisphere, or spherical quadrant of 90?."
In order to make such an exact measurement, the designers would have had to be knowledgeable of advanced mathematics, engineering and astronomy. Tompkins further shows us the pyramid's relationship to the earth, "The apex of the Pyramid corresponds to the (North) pole, the perimeter to the equator, both in proper scale."
One of the great misnomers in history was giving Archimedes, the noted ancient Greek mathematician, credit for the value Pi (p = 3.14159+), the ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter. He lived around 287 – 212 B.C.E. The problem with the way this is taught, the great pyramid was built around 2,665 B.C.E., give or take a few decades either way. Most honest mathematicians familiar with the construction of the pyramid will empirically state that Pi was incorporated with its construction.
In fact, the doorways of many of the massive temples in Kemet are shaped in the symbol of Pi. According to mathematician Deborah Maat Moore, "Problems number 48 and 50 in the Ahmose Mathematical Papyrus (called "The Directions For Knowing All Dark Things," one of the oldest mathematical documents in existence) shows how the Egyptians derived the formula Pi." (The African Roots Of Mathematics) Today it is called the Rhind Mathematical Papyrus.
The same myth is taught about the Greek philosopher/mathematician Pythagoras, trained in Kemet for 22 years, which the Pythagorean Theorem was named after, though it was originally known as the "Kemetic Theorem Of The Right Triangle," it was used 1800 years before the birth of Pythagoras in the construction of the great pyramid.
One of the fascinating facts of the pyramid's design, it took 2,500,000 huge blocks of stones, each weighing 2.5 tons, yet the four corners of the base were near perfect right angles. When calculated accurately, the base measures a near perfect number of degrees of a complete circle: 359. 45?. The stones were mathematically placed at accurate angles, with no use of mortar, or the use of modern day cranes. No building today is built with such skill.
To further illustrate the genius of the Afrikan builders, "The Egyptians had measured the base of the Pyramid in units to fit a solar year of 365.2322 days (a complete year). They intended for the base of the Pyramid to indicate the value of a degree at the equator (where they apparently considered the earth to be a true circle [hundreds of years before Europeans discovered this] and a degree of latitude to be equal to a degree of longitude). The ancient Egyptians knew that a degree of latitude is shortest at the equator and lengthens as it approaches the (North) pole." (Thompkins)
Although it is evident that Afrikans of the ancient Nile Valley possessed an inherent genius and precision for their developments, it is also apparent they were planning for future generations, in life and in death. What should be plain and obvious to the conscious mind, the duty of all adults, parents and teachers, is their fundamental responsibility to pass the knowledge of this genius to the younger generations, alerting them that this ancient brilliance was established for them, and that they are accountable for continuing the legacy of their ancestors. To do less would be a failure for themselves and humanity.
i shall share some excerpts from howard zinn's and anthony arnove's book; "voices of a people's history of the united states". copyright 2004, a seven stories press first edition
the following are excerpts,...
the diary of christopher columbus (october 11-15, 1492) by bartolome' de las casas, two readings on the legacy of columbus (1542 and 1550)
the devastation of the indies: a brief account (1542)
in defense of the indians (1550)
chapter 1: columbus and las casas, pg 29, 2nd paragraph
...columbus and his men, greeted by peaceful and generous natives, set out on a ruthless quest for gold that led to enslavement, misery, and death for that population.
chapter 1: columbus and las casa, pg 36, 2nd paragraph
and of all the infinite universe of humanity, these people are the most guileless, the most devoid of wickedness and duplicity, the most obedient and faithful to their ative masters and to the spanish christians whom they serve. they are by nature the most humble, patient, and peaceable, holding no grudges, free from embroilments, neither excitable nor quarrelsome. these people are the most devoid of rancors, hatreds, or desire for vengeance of any people in the world. and because they are so weal and complaisant, they are less able to endure heavy labor and soon die of no matter what malsdy. the sons of mobles among us, brought up in the enjoumenst of life's refinements, are no more deleicate than are these indians, even those among them who are of the lowest rank of laborers. they are also poor people, for they not only possess little but have no desire to possess worldly goods. for this reason they are not arrogant, embittered, or greedy.
chapter 1: columbus and las casas, pg 37, 3rd paragraph
as for the vast mainland, whichis ten times larger than all spain, even including aragon and portugal, containing more land than the distance between seville and jerusalem, or more than two thousand leagues, we are sure that our spaniards, with their cruel and abominable acts, have devasted the land and exterminated the rational people who fully inhabited it. we can estimate very surely and truthfully that in the forty years that have passed, with the infernal actions of the christians, there have been unjustly slain more than twelve million men, women, and children. in truth, i believe without trying to deceive myself that the number of the slain is more like fifteen million.
their reason for killing and destroying such an infinite number of souls is that the christians have an ultimate aim, which is to acquire gold, and to swell themselves with riches in a very brief time and thus rise to high estate disproportionate to their merits. it should be kept in mind that their insatiable greed and ambition, the greatest ever see in the world, is the cause of their villainies. and also, those lands are so rich and felicitous, the native peoples so meek and patient, so easy to subject, that our spainards have no more consideration for them than beasts. and i say this from my own knowledge of the acts i witnessed. but i should not say 'than beasts" for, thanks be to God, they have treated beasts with some respect; i should say instead like excrement on the public squares.
why did the migrating albinos along with their admixture of offsprings, eventually become so aggressively violent, "barbaric" invading and either running out or murdering the established original pigmented people?
i believe the albino children were taken care of but as they grew and their numbers increased among their normal pigmented clans, concerns of passing on the condition through mating called for separation. isolating those with the condition from the rest of the tribe. in addition, the need to fine an environment with less direct sun than the equator region, i think fueled the extensive migration from central east africa to central asia, to eventual far east asia, up to mongolia, russia, eventual west to the mediterranean and onto europe. that is not to say that there may not have been some abuse at that time, but i do not believe so. as with the biblical form of "leprosy" people were " shuned" not for contagious reasons, but i believe for reproduction reasons so as not to pass on the condition/disorder/disease. it was a condition that Jesus healed. i believe that albinism, and vitiligo were akin to what the biblical text referred to as leprosy. i believed the migrating albinos became aggressive because the original people the encounter were so amiable and generally passive. they were able to take what they wanted. i believe they also learned the way of warring from the architect societies as they migrated.
in conclusion, the following resources provide a clearer thus more accurate picture of the universal human experience. i am as one who collects puzzle pieces of an unknown/perhaps intentionally hidden puzzle image. these pieces must necessarily come from every age, culture, region, language, perspective and period; encompassing the most varied and vast experiences of us all.

...collectively, and logically overlaid upon each other, offer a vastly more accurate description of the chronology of the universal human experience. although, the actual current dating presumption of this sequencing/chronology, is not consistent with many aspects of factual evidence, it is therefore quite limited in its usefulness. understanding the sequence of events in some relative terms, is useful.

lastly, but most equally imperative, the knowledge gained from the logical rendering of the interlinear; hebrew, greek and english version of the biblical text, has illuminated and acted as a type of anchor between the "secular" documentation of the social-political human experience and the relatively young micro-science perspective of the universal human experience.
