Notes
If one fights in the arena forgetful of the past, success will elude him who ignores what he should know-African Proverb
What was the major downfall to African Civilization?
There was a break down in the order of society between the Old, Midddle, new, and Late Kingdoms in Kemet.
The breakdown is created by forgetfulness of ethics, morality, righteousness, living by truth, which causes a downfall in society.
When people elevate politically, economically, socially, their morality fails, and maturity as a society.
If you did not have adversity, how would you begin to think about having anything greater than that. Greed takes over, pleasure seeking, allows corruption to come into order

You will become cattle, led to slaughter
In the late period attack on Egypt led to Christian takeover
Christians take over Roman Empire – Romans adopted Christianity
Kamatian Society was governed by Priests and Priestesses
Kamatian civilization/Temple -Agriculture, Education, Sprituality, Religion
3 Basic human needs to have a stable and orderly society
Food= sustenance
Shelter=Home
Boat= Opportunity

B. The most important theme for me in this lesson was the mention of the breakdown of today’s society. A large percentage of western society thrives on selfishness, manipulation, brain washing, propaganda. If people don’t begin to wake up, there will continue to be mass destruction of communities. I think it’s important to know where you came from, in order to know where you’re going. Also, it’s important to recognize , when “the wool” is being pulled over your eyes. Working together for the better, will make a larger impact then competing with each other
C. The statement, “When you close the temple down, you disrupt the economy- people begin to destroy each other”…..Can you elaborate ,on what is meant by the “the temple”?
