THIS BLOG IS ABOUT THE TEMPLES OF LUXOR AND KARNAK WHICH WERE BUILT AT ANCIENT THEBES, FORMERLY THE CAPITAL OF KEMET. THE VISUAL MATERIAL PRESENTATION IS A PHOTOGRAPHIC PROVISION AND A GENEROUS GUIDE FOR THOSE UNABLE TO TRAVEL TO THIS DESTINATION FOR A BETTER APPRECIATION OF THE CULTURAL CONTINUITY, ARTISTIC ABILITY AND PHILOSOPHICAL PEDIGREE OF THE SYMBOLICAL SIGNIFICANCE AND SACRED SCIENCE OF THE ANCIENT AFRICAN CIVILISATIONS OF KEMET AND KUSH. HISTORICALLY, THE ORIGINAL NAME OF ANCIENT EGYPT WAS KNOWN AS KEMET AND TA SETI. KUSH ENCOMPASSED THE PRESENT DAY COUNTRIES OF ETHIOPIA, SUDAN, KENYA AND UGANDA, TA MERI. IN FACT, THE ANCIENT AFRICAN CIVILISATION OF KUSH GLOBALISED THE WHOLE WIDE WORLD, STARTING WITH TA MERI. THROUGH THE PASSAGE OF TIME, HOWEVER, IT WAS SUPPLANTED BY EXTERNAL FORCES AND LOST IN THE NOSTALGIC MEMORIES OF THE DESCENDANTS OF THIS ANCIENT NILOTIC CIVILISATION. THIS BLOG WAS EFFICACIOUSLY CONSTRUCTED WITH THE AIM OF PRESERVING PHOTOGRAPHICALLY AND SALVAGING SYMBOLICALLY THE ANCIENT AFRICAN CULTURE OF CIVILISATION IN VISUAL FORM. THE INTELLECTUAL INTENTION INVOLVES INCREASING THE SURVIVABILITY AND LONGEVITY OF KEMET AND KUSH. THE BLOG FACILITATES A PLATFORM FOR A PHOTOGRAPHIC SURVEY CONDUCTED AT LUXOR, WHICH IS LOCATED AT PRESENT DAY EGYPT, IN DECEMBER 201O AND APPLIES AN AMATEUR ARCHAEOLOGICAL APPROACH WITH AN EFFECTIVELY ETHNOGRAPHIC TRAJECTORY. THE HUMAN BEINGS WHO RIGOROUSLY RESEARCHED AND RESPONSIBLY RECOMMENDED THE DIFFUSION OF THE SCIENTIFIC SYSTEM AND SACRED SCIENCE DISPLAYED WERE ANCIENT AFRICAN WOMEN AND MEN. INDEED, THE TEMPLES OF LUXOR AND KARNAK HAVE DEFIED TIME AND WILL CONTINUOUSLY FASCINATE FULSOMELY THE WORLD WITH THE ANCIENT AFRICAN ARCHITECTURE AND ARTEFACTS, BRILLIANT BUILDINGS, ENDEAVOURS OF EMOTIONAL EFFECTIVENESS, MONUMENTAL MAGNIFICENCE AND SPECTACULARLY SPLENDOROUS, SCIENTIFICALLY SACRED, SYMBOLIC SYSTEM OF SIGNIFICATION, WHICH FACILITATES THE TRANSMISSION OF THE CULTURE OF CIVILISATION THROUGH SPACE-TIME. CONSEQUENTIALLY, I PRAY GODDESS MAY GRANT YOU TO BE WITH BALANCE, COMPASSION, PIOUS PEACE AND TRANQUILLITY. I WISH YOU MARVELLOUS MAAT FROM THE HARMONIOUS HEART. HOTEP!
I recently travelled to Egypt (Cairo, Hurghada and Luxor) and captured these photographs, which I want to share with the world for educational and informational purposes.
This blog was initiated in 2011 during a Master's Degree programme at the London College of Communication, University of the Arts London. The photographic survey of the tremendously technical temples served as the primary research methodology, the tangible text of intellectual investigation and the empirical evidence of academic assessment in order to analyse, to contextualise and to hypothesise the functions of the temples, which were built thousands of years ago, utilising the astoundingly accomplished Ancient African architectural practices; which are utterly ubiquitous in the whole wide world, contemporaneously.
The utter ubiquity of the Kemetic knowledge of sacred science (the unequivocal unification of fine art, scientific accuracy, propitious philosophy, religious rites and luxurious literature) is demonstrably due to the many marvellously mathematical, prodigiously physical and amazingly artistic associations of architectural build, construction and design; functional features which are definitely detectable in the most modern state of the art and scientific semblances. In essence, the Temple of Human and the Temple of Amen Ra, efficaciously and conspicuously, transmit through time and space the piously prosperous traditions of the Ancient African architects and academicians who built them for righteous reasons.
