What is ancient Khemet?
For most people, ancient Kemet is synonymous with Egypt. Egypt definitely owes a lot of its culture to Kemet. However, Kemet is the name for an area in Africa that "bubbled" up from the southern Nile river valley all the way into present-day Egypt.

"Nubia (present-day Sudan) is the mother of Egyptian Knowledge, Ethiopia is the daughter, and Somalia, Kenya, and Uganda is the grandmother." - Egyptologist Dr. Yosef Ben Jochonnan
In other words, the knowledge you now see on the walls of ancient Egypt originated within interior Africa.
Kemet means the "black land" or land of the blacks depending on who you asked about the interpretations. The people of ancient Kemet were black African people. This is important to note because western society has been silent on Africa and its history.
Egypt is the only country in Africa that has left a historical record in stone. That's why we know so much about the history of [ancient Egypt] today, but not interior Africa. The black African people ruled Egypt Exclusively until c.a. 1650 BCE. This is the time when a "mixed group of Asiatic people" known as the Hyksos invaded Egypt.
That statement is to recognize this point, that Egypt was distinctly black and African for thousands of years. Why is this important to note? Because people of the African diaspora need to recognize that they built the greatest civilization known to exist on this planet. And that Africans had one of the most profound impacts on civilization the world has NEVER known. [Learn more here.]
That is until very recent times. There are many people now starting to bring forth the truth of the impact that Africa, and its people, have had on the world beyond the slave trade.
I've already mentioned Dr. Ben as he was affectionately known. On this idea of Africans, he states: "Egypt is not the first great civilization along the Nile river, it is the last. The only difference is their legacy was preserved in stone."
Let that sink in! "Egypt was not the first great African civilization, it was the last." This is being borne out by many people that call themselves Kemetologist. They see themselves different from Egyptologist because they are using multi-disciplinary fields like:
Geology, which is the science that deals with the earths physical structure and substance, its history and the processes that act on it.
Archeoastronomy, which is the investigation of the astronomical knowledge of prehistoric cultures.
And Paleoclimatology, which is the study of climate taken on the scale of the entire history of the earth [weather patterns]. All three of these sciences are being used to uncover the mystery of Egypt and not just Archeology.
The indigenous wisdom teachings date the civilization known as ancient Kemet to around 65,000 years old. Give or take a few thousand years. This idea fly's in the face of Egyptology who want to date Modern civilization from around 6,000 years ago to fit their theoretical model of the development of civilization.
Egyptologist believe in a paradigm that civilization moves from the simple to the complex. There is starting to be much evidence from the Kemetologist that make this paradigm seem ridiculous!
That's doesn't mean all the new information is correct, but it does open up things for a lot more questions. Now I'm not going to make what I share with you solely about race. What I share effects humanity, not just one facet of this fabricated idea of race. However, it does need to be recognized that in today's highly racialized society that Africans were front and center in the development of world civilization.
I speak of ancient Kemet to give credit where credit is due for some fascinating ideas in science, philosophy, theology, and metaphysics. Over the past 500 years, this contribution has been completely dismissed or ignored on the world stage. For the African diaspora, this information is relevant and important for the healing of deep wounds.
For other cultures, this idea may be foreign to you for many reasons. I'm not asking [permission] for you to accept it or validate it. Just know from the perspective of one [that is] from the African diaspora that it is real and necessary.
I will be moving forward from here to share some history and metaphysical ideas expressed in the stones that are amazing and life-transforming. The focus will be more on the metaphysical aspects with history as a context for the ideas.
I know you're probably used to really getting deep into the factual history. But, ancient Kemet and its effects go so much deeper when you understand the metaphysical practices and practical application to your life. If you were raised Christian what you will find often time scripture you thought was literal, was in actuality a Kemetian metaphysical idea that was changed and reinterpreted as a literal and religious idea.
Just one example is John 1:1 and it states: In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. This was a reiteration of a Kemetian proverb that was reinterpreted by Christians as proof that God was made flesh through Jesus. [Learn more here]
In reality, it is a reference to a Kemetian metaphysical concept that is thousands of years old! I know this will be a challenge for many to accept, but this is the knowledge we will delve deeper into moving forward.
It's not just about the history of civilization. It's not ultimately about race. It's about transforming and empowering humanity. The truth is, EVERY human being is a descendant of Africa.
Thank you for watching.
The Greeks are giving credit as the mother of western civilization. But what is starting to come forth is that the Greek Miracle in European civilization was due to the influence of its African teachers. [learn more here]
