The Origin of the Word, Kemet
In the pre-history period of Egypt, and during the Old Kingdom, Egypt was referred to as Kemet, or simply Kmt, which means "The Black Nation" or "The Black City". The name for Egypt was originated by the Greeks, as Ae-gyp-t-os. Over the millenniums, Egypt has had many names in many different languages. Today, its official name is Junhuriyah Misr al-Arabiyah, which in English means the Arab Republic of Egypt. Egyptians themselves today refer to Egypt as Misr. Misr is an Arabic name simply meaning "country", and part of the tradition of this term as a name for Egypt comes from the Islamic Quran. The Arabs who invaded Egypt, like the Greeks, had problems pronouncing the term, Ae-gyp-t-os, which means "Egyptian citizen". Essentially, they changed the word to Copti. Of course, at that time, Egypt was a Christian nation, so the term became limited to actual Egyptian Christians as the country became more and more Muslim.
History of Religion
The Kemetians, studied the cosmos closely and recognized that great powers hold the universe together. These powers inherent in the universe were also identified in the human body, and the sum total of all the Universal forces was the One God, the Supreme, the Universe.
So where did the ancient Kemetic people go to flee from foreign invasions and religious oppressors? Well, some stay around the ancient land, but it is believed that most of them migrated to sub-Sahara Africa and to the West of Africa.
The Kemetic religion embodies a system of spiritual cultivation, the oldest in the world. The next closest tradition in terms of age would be Vedic tradition of India, which based on the Rig Veda, could be traced back to about 1500 BCE, and even the Vedic tradition would appear also to owe some of its spiritual science to Kemet. The earliest written parts of the Bible would have been written 1000 BCE, based on a tradition dating back to Abraham, who would have lived one thousand years earlier, in about 2000 BCE. Moses lived about 1300 BCE. Chinese Taoist philosophy dates back only to about 500 BCE, as does Confucianism.
The Ausarian Drama or Resurrection
The trilogy of Auset (Isis), Ausar (Orisis), and Heru (Horus) (Ausarian Drama) is 4100 years older than Christianity. In the story, the God Ausar, was killed by his brother, Set (origin of the word Satan). The son (Sun) of Ausar, named Heru, avenged his father's death by fighting with Set. His father was resurrected from death. This original story (prototype for Constantine's bible) is published in detail in the Book of the Dead. The earliest Book of the Dead on record dates to the mid-fifteenth century BCE, but some of the spells had their origins in the Pyramid Texts from the 5th and 6th Dynasties, carved more than 1000 years earlier. The Pyramid Texts themselves in part refer in their own turn to rituals and practices probably in common usage 1000 years prior to them. Some of the texts were found on the walls of tombs, on coffins, written on linen or vellum, and on papyrus.
It is about living a successful, glorious and peaceful life. They believe the purpose of our existence is to develop our Spiritual Selves, in ways that gives full expression to our Divine Power through the integration and balancing of all aspects of our Spiritual Selves, and the harmonizing of our relationships to the world and nature. The goal is to create "Unity Within Diversity". The statement "As Above; So Below" refers to the fact that the Objective (material world) is a reflection of the Subjective (inner world). It has been referred to as magic, and miracles in the Objective World, which are expressions of the Spiritual Power manifesting in the Objective World. When this power is misused, that is, not wielded with the idea of creating "Unity Within Diversity" then disease, war, discord occurs in the world. We are all manifestations of a transcendent force: the Mother/Father God, and we are all connected, and powerful. The purpose of spiritual cultivation on all levels is to reveal the unity in diversity on all levels, and thus create peace within the individual, and in the world. The purpose also was to create Maat (balance, harmony, justice, righteousness, reciprocity, and order). These are the key concepts in any ethical system, and they emerged first within the ancient Nile Valley of Africa.
