*******The reason it rose is that people started following the 77 commandments and were taught things like plant & animal domestication, mathematics, astronomy, and all the sciences by Wsr*******
What, like some magic trick WSR just sent down some commandments like in the movie "Ten Commandments"??? It is a semi/eurocentric perspective of being in a command/obey relationship with divinity in the first place. Not one single indigenous culture in Afrika or anywhere else in the world had a dictatorial-comply authoritarian God concept.
Could you please elaborate specifically how 77 commandments gave rise to a civilization. And what does it mean that a civilization "rose" anyway? Rose from what? Rose towards what?
*******The reason it fell is that it is the nature of Good to be affected by evil no matter how good the Good and how long it has existed.*******
So evil is superior? If that is the case why hasn't evil consumed everything and everyone?
What precisely is your definition of "evil" anyway? Whatever it may be, we must sight that evil only applies to humans. There is a lot more to reality than what applies to human behavior. Plus it seems that you are trying to apply good and evil as opposites. They are not. What we call evil is but a void of what we call good but they are not opposites. We may perceive/receive opposite outcomes but again that is but our human perspective and does not apply to the whole. We may want to think so because of our "higher" intelligence. But this higher intelligence is what will cause our downfall...no differently than Kemet or Rome or Greece or Ming or Persian and no differently than the current "empire".
Kemet rose and fell because 'civilization'.is just like physical life. It is born, it grows, it matures, it declines and it dies. That is a universal/ma'atic/cyclic truth that applies to EVERY component in the Universe. The whole is constant. There are crests and troughs that come about in different areas at different times but eventually EVERYTHING returns to level.
You made your presentation on these subjects with strong assertion. I hope that a discussion may come out of this dialogue between us and learning may be achieved and you are not just repeating some speak you heard somewhere else.
