Kemet 101 Lesson 2

Main themes

“If one fights in the arena forgetful of the past, success will elude him who ignores what he should know.” Kemetic Proverb

Pre Dynastic 10,000 BC
Old Kingdom 5,000 BC
Middle Kingdom 3,000 BC
New Kingdom 1,900 BC
Late Period 1,000 BC
The space between the kingdoms was due to the breakdown of the civilization. The reason stated in the above proverb. A forgetfulness of what made Kemet a civilization in the first place: ethics, morality, righteousness, and living by the truth.

“You should not say that evil should not exist.” Kemetic Proverb
The purpose of evil and tribulations is to bring about spiritual growth in our lives.

The foundations of Kemetic Culture:
1. Agriculture
2. Education
3. Social, Political, and Ethics
4. Religion (Shetaut Neter)
When the Edicts from Rome came to close all Pagan Temples in the Empire, it hurt Kemet the most since the Temple was responsible for all four of these Groups. Without the Priests and Priestesses overseeing these, the society collapsed.

Three basic human needs that any society needs to have stability:
1. Food- sustenance
2. Shelter- home
3. Boat- opportunity to work, have an education
The people of Kemet understood the purpose of life. They knew at the root of creation was spiritual essence. This is what set them apart and made Kemet special. This is what gave them the impetus to persist for over ten thousand years.
The social order in Kemet:
1. Common Folk (not serfs, or peasants)
2. Skilled workers
3. Government Workers
4. Priest and Priestesses
5. Matriarchy
Women were equal under Maatian Law. They were educated, bought, and sold land, and were Rulers. Common people did not practice polygamy only for the King did it for political purposes. When signing treaties with foreign governments.
