Very inspiring thoughts in your post.

About the statement: “Kemetic scripture it was the God Djehuty that created the Medtu Neteru writing system and gave it to the world.”
It is important to realize that Djehuty is cosmic mind. Lord Khepri (Creator spirit) dictated the wisdom to Djehuty and he devised the writings system to record the words. Therefore, it is the mind of God and the intellectual capacity to grasp that system of writing that allows humans who can gain access to it to discover the teaching contained in the medtu neter.
About the statement: ““Scholars should ascribe the meaning, which can only be done through the knowledge of the myth and philosophy when it is lived and practiced. Therefore, what western scholars have done is admirable and appreciated, but it will not serve the needs of African people.” (Ashby, p.45)
The question is “What would serve the needs of African people?” In the text Sebai Maa clearly answers this question with the idea of officially reviving Medtu Neter as a spoken language in the modern African community. I am intrigued by this idea and its possibilities. Imagine the diverse African communities, worldwide, speaking a universal language in the ancient Kemetic tongue—Medtu Neteru—the Mother language of the Motherland.”
This is indeed an intriguing issue that has fascinated many people for many years and other Kemetic groups have wondered about not just a basic but a comprehensive adoption of the Kemetic language in such a way as done, for example, by the Jews. The Kemetic language offers certain differences and advantages but also challenges. The scholarship needed to convert the language for modern use, such as introducing new words such as “automobile” etc. could be done but more than that it would require mythic and philosophical study as well as intensive use in conversational settings. Whether or not this process would be useful or successful to the adopters, is likely though still speculative. Such profound changes would be generational, moving away from the worldly culture and to the Kemetic. However, it is most important at this time to take advantage of the possible benefits even without the full adoption and let the larger masses work through their aryu and with their currently adopted methods at their own pace and in their own time.
