It seems Hollywood doesn’t have any original ideas. They keep telling the same stories over and over again. And I’ve noticed over the years they love to tell stories with African origins,legends and mythology. I remember years ago when I saw the film Lion King by Disney. It was obvious the story of Simba the young lion cub came from the Kemetic story of Heru. The entire film is based off of the story of Ausar(Osiris),Auset(Isis) and Heru(Horus). The exact same story is in the Black Panther as well. They all deal with African spirituality in some way. You can see the same theme in the Star Wars films too. Hollywood just makes the characters cartoons and superheroes to disguise the true origin. But like I said they have no originality in Hollywood. And the formula seems to work….so why change it up. Nothing new under the sun!
You know one of the things that has always amazed me about the Kemetic sages was their love of mathematics and the need for everything to make sense. Anyone who has studied the Kemetic philosophy and their metaphysics will know exactly what I am talking about.
For instance, did you know that the Kemetic Eye of Hru is composed of the following fractions?
Did you know that each of these fractions that make up a fraction of the Eye corresponds to a physical aspect of the human being from the smallest to largest? (Ok. Math Review. The top number of the fraction is called the numerator and the bottom number the denominator. The larger the denominator the smaller the fraction). Therefore, from least to greatest:
This means that what we refer to as reality is based largely upon our Sense of Smell (1/2) and Sight (1/4) than upon what we actually physically experience (1/64). What we imagine and smell has a greater influence then what we physically experience, hence the Universe is Mental. The ability to smell and see are actually the oldest functions of the human brain. In other words, this reveals from the Kemetic perspective the evolution of consciousness. Pretty amazing stuff right?
Did you know that when you add all of these fractions together the sum is 63/64? Pretty cool.
But, what is the missing 1/64 fraction to make it a 64/64 = 1 whole?
Those familiar with the Kemetic Story of Osar know that the missing 1/64 is intuition. According to the Story of Osar, Hru was unable to defeat his evil uncle Set because Set had managed to gouge Hru’s eye out. In desperation Hru fled to find Djahuti who repaired his eye perfectly. After which, our hero was able to defeat Set on the battlefield but he was unable to fully reclaim to crown until his father Osar spoke on his behalf and the tribunal ruled in Hru’s favor.
The missing 1/64 represents all of the spirits, which also contribute to the evolution of human consciousness.
The Eye of Hru also known as the Left Eye of Ra or Lunar Eye of Ra, corresponds to the intuitive and spiritual aspect of our being, hence insight.
What this means is that we all must go through some ordeal (fight with Set symbolized as a journey through TASETT), which will lead us to brush shoulders with all of the spirits (in KAMTA), so that we can gain wisdom.
If we refuse to gain wisdom from our spirits, we will never get a holistic view of life or achieve Maa (Balance, Truth, Order, Justice, Righteousness, etc.) in our life. We will always be dominated by the Right Eye of Ra or Solar Eye, which corresponds to the literal and material aspect of life.
Therefore, it is important that we never forget our spirits because they help us to gain insight or to see the whole picture. Remember, they do not have a physical body so they can see things that we are not able to physically see, which gives us a better understanding of who we are.
The Ankh is defined as: The symbolic representation of both Physical and Eternal life. It is known as the original cross, which is a powerful symbol that was first created by Africans in Ancient Kemet.
The Ankh is commonly known to mean life in the language of Ancient Kemet (land of the Blacks) renamed Egypt by the Greeks. It is also a symbol for the power to give and sustain life, the Ankh is typically associated with material things such as water(which was believed by Egyptians to regenerate life), air, sun, as well as with the Gods, who are frequently pictured carrying an Ankh. The Egyptian king is often associated with the Ankh also, either in possession of an Ankh (providing life to his people) or being given an Ankh (or stream of Ankhs) by the Gods. This can be seen in the picture of King Senworsert below who is holding two Ankhs to his chest. There are numerous examples that have been found that were made from metal, clay and wood. It is usually worn as an amulet to extent the life of living and placed on the mummy to energize the resurrected spirit. The Gods and the Kings are often shown carrying the Ankh to distinguish them from mere mortals. The Ankh symbolized eternal life and bestowed immortality on anyone who possessed it. It is believed that life energy emanating from the Ankh can be absorbed by anyone within a certain proximity. An Ankh serves as an antenna or conduit for the divine power of life that permeates the universe. The amulet is a powerful talisman that provides the wearer with protection from the evil forces of decay and degeneration.
The loop of the Ankh is held by the Gods. It is associated with Isis and Osiris in the Early Dynastic Period. The Loop of the Anhk also represent the feminine discipline or the (Womb), while the elongated section represent the masculine discipline or the (Penis). These two sacred units then come together and form life. Because of its powerful appeal, the Ankh was used in various religious and cultural rituals involving royalty. In the Treasures of Tutankhumun, the Ankh was a major artifact found in the tomb. The circle symbolizes eternal life and the cross below it represents the material plane. The Ankh is called the “Crux Ansata,” it is of Egyptian origin and can be traced to the Early Dynastic Period, appearing frequently in artwork of various material and in relief, depicting the Gods.
It is usually held to the nose of the deceased king by the Gods to represent the breath of life given in the after-world. The Ankh also resembles a key and is considered the key to eternal life after death. Its influence was felt in every dynastic period and survives as an icon possessing mystical power throughout the Coptic Christian era. The Ankh possessed by each God had power associated with that God. The Ankh of the God Anubis (shown in the picture to the right) is related to the protection of the dead, that of Sekmet, War, Hapi related to the living waters of the Nile and Amen, the spirit God, the breath of life.
