We in Africa are not used to achieving breakthroughs in science or history. This is because we tend not to be as explorative as those, for example, in the West. But most of the progress we have made in science (i.e. knowledge) and technology (the application thereof) could not have been achieved if a wall - a barrier of sorts - had not been broken down by some pioneer. The funny thing is that when the leap of knowledge or technology is first suggested as possible, or probable, the protagonist is typically regarded as a foolish dreamer. Indeed, powered heavier-than-air flight, radio, artificial intelligence and many other advances we now take for granted were first laughed out of every serious academic discussion. The status quo had been set and it took ground-breaking inventions to change the scientific landscape.
Unlike technology, pure knowledge itself may be harder to impress on people because it is not tangible. The evidence may be tangible or discernible, but a certain mind-set may yet fail to weave seemingly disparate elements into an integrated mental picture. Here we often prefer blind emotion to logic - a word premised on loga (weaving [of various elements into a non-contradictory whole]). Indeed, 'technology' - in Sotho-Tswana terms - is made up of teko (experiment) and loga: weave [into something complex]). In researching the roots of the Tswana language, my own logi has led me further than I first thought possible, hence my totally-integrated and logically-unassailable Truth-Matrix. It revealed that having been part of ancient Egypt - one of the earliest and most admired civilisations - the Sotho-Tswana language can not only unravel much of our forgotten or ill-understood past, including 'mythical' and Biblical times, but also help unscramble the very building blocks of all languages in the world; the much sought-after Proto-Language. But it may take time before this breakthrough, this broken-down wall, is properly appreciated.
Bantus, it is clear, came to be forcibly displaced from Egypt. This basically coincided with a time when religiosity was being shaped by the gods - now simply called 'Elohim'. Because we once shared Egypt with Ba-Hibiru - the Red Ones so-named because, being light-skinned Aryans, they turned red in the hot Egyptian sun, it is not surprising that the Hebrew term for Mo-Loi was 'Eloi', the plural of which was 'Elohim'. Indeed, last week we noted that 'm' placed at end. Thus, instead of Ma-Elo[h]I, we get Elohi-m, just as Mo-Hibiru became Hibiru-m (Abraham) along with his followers the Hyksos; the Shepherd Princes and Guardians of the Age of the Ram (Aries: 2160 BC to 0 AD).
How were Bantus displaced? Firstly, this was when ''monotheism'' was enforced by the Hyksos as the defining religion for the Age of the Ram. When the Hyksos elite were kicked out for Simeon and Levi's mistake of killing Seqenenre Tao (explained last week), there came the bull-sheep controversy.
What happened here? In retaliation for the Enlilites' usurping of Marduk's Age of the Ram (i.e. when he was scheduled to become the new Enlil) the embittered indigenous Egyptians (always followers of Marduk-Ra) reverted to ''bull worship' - in reality the recognition of the Age of the Bull (Taurus: 4320 BC to 2160 BC as the 'ruling' age even though it had passed. The Levites had 'digged down a wall' (Genesis 49:5-6) - meaning North Egypt: E-sira-El (Israel: 'it protects El'). Egypt was a buffer zone meant to protect the shems (rockets) in Canaan against indigenous Egyptians - especially those in the south which area Abraham (Mehibre) had lost to Mentuhotep II.
But now we ironically 'keep their council' (the Levites compiled the Old Testament) even though they had things to hide: especially the Hyksos period. It has been artfully ignored in the Old Testament even though it is incontrovertibly historical.
All this suited Illui descendants very well: shem flight and its association with space and time-warp was replaced with a new 'spirit' (sa moyeng: 'of the air') and a new, more abstract, 'heavenly immortality'. From now on 'God's things' were not to be touched, as Bethshemites discovered (1 Samuel 6:18-19). The shems, the trouble-magnet, that made E-DIN (the noisy place) a para-disa - the guarded place - were gone, removed to South America before the mountain silos were glaringly destroyed - as in Jebel Barkal in Sudan - along with 'sinning' cities like Sodom and Gomorrah.
Seqenenre's dynasty that followed in Egypt was Enkiite. In attempting to regain Egypt for the Enlilites, Moses was planted in 'Israel' (the north) in 1513 BC - a time when Queen Hatshepsut was a little princess. Later, Joseph was born to Jacob in 1478 when Jacob was 90 years in Egypt (his 'sojourn') since returning from 'Jacob's Ladder' in 1569 BC (also explained last week). Why a different order in the OT? Biblically, Joseph appears to precede Moses but the interval between them has not been obviated. Logically, therefore, it is like saying that the Persian King Artaxexes (Ahaseurus) preceded David simply because Ezra and Ruth precede Psalms in the present order of the OT. Firstly, it was to obscure that they were pharaohs. Joseph was the vizier Yuya. 'Moses' is incomplete as it just means 'son of'. Even in Tswana we have to say mose-mani (boy: bigger child) and mose-zana (girl: smaller child). He was most likely Thothmoses V, brother of Akhenaten (Aaron). Secondly, when we begin to unravel - for the first time ever - their full story (no one, no other writer, has managed it) we will see how, from next week, their story is much misunderstood, how in fact it weaves seamlessly into actual and true Egyptian history.
