In Response To: An empire cannot live within Ma'at (of ma'at)
"As soon as you place anything or anyone on an authoritative throne above anything or anyone else you violate Ma'at."
Correction. You do not "violate" Ma'at per se. You simply act against the universal force of balancing/equalizing/mediation. And that is an insurmountable task. As a wave flows, its crest (upper edge) is acted against by its trough (lower edge) until it 'balances' out and becomes still/level. The state of level/balance is achieved when there is equal forces applied in all directions, be it gravity, atmospheric pressure, molecular pressure, etc.
The same applies to the behavior of every speck of energy and matter.
Actually, it is IMPOSSIBLE to 'violate' Ma'at. It is an unbreakable law of Nature. What you can do is cause the forces to work against your 'defiance'.
As soon as Kemetians singled out a person and placed them on a pedestal, they sealed their fate. It was you who brought up the longevity of the Kemetic civilization. But did you realize that talk of empire and pharaoh and ruling can only be found towards the END of its existence? That is no mystery. As with anything, the rise of something enacts its downfall. As soon as a wave rises, it is being forced to fall. As soon as a wave depresses, it is being forced to rise.
Before a tsunami, many indigenous people realize the need to head to high ground by observation of an uncharacteristic lowering of the water level. They are Ma'at oriented. They knew that any lowering of water equates to a rising.
The key to the oppression of our people (or any people for that matter) is to keep us in a state of fighting against Ma'at. This is accomplished by instilling us with a sense of hierarchy. As long we fight against Ma'at and do not align with it, we are, as you say, fighting against ourselves.
Western civilization is hinged upon us yearning and seeking and desiring more INDIVIDUALISTIC material possessions and egotistical status. That is how the people are being manipulated in the Middle East. Via the digital toys of the internet and phones and TV, these people are yearning for a taste of Western materialism.
So in the old age, there were the tangible empires of borders and castles and thrones and dungeons, etc. In the new age, there are intangible empires of our own egos. We won't need to be dictated to by an elevated authoritative figure. Our psyches have already been conditioned to follow preconceived notions.
The physical shackles and gates have been removed. But the mental shackles remain and are even stronger.
