******* I would have to say that the Kemetic empire was a "peaceful" empire. It colonized most of the world including some parts of Europe without force and without forcing the people they taught to accept the Kemetic names of the Neteru (Gods and Goddesses).*******
So they didn't have an army descend upon the lands that they so-called "peacefully colonized"???
How was it their right to colonize others?
The Kemetians gained more for their empire. What was the gain for those colonized?
There is no such thing as a peaceful empire. "Empire" involves a disproportionate distribution of anything that favors the elite minority atop the pyramid.
A symbiotic/ma'atic collection, on the other hand, is how the universe/nature aligns. Humans may call a lion the "king" of the jungle but there are many creatures that prey upon lions, including wee little microscopic organisms. A pack of those "loving to kill" hyenas will have some say on if a lion is king also.
Humans are considered to be the "superior" creature upon earth but has done the most heinous acts against themselves and the globe.
That is why one of the "highest" technological achievements, NUCLEAR SCIENCE, is the greatest threat of our own annihilation. Just ask the Japanese how 'great' nuclear energy is now.
Nope. There is no vanilla peaceful colonization and invasion and dominance.
Kemet declined because it rose.
There are just as ancient but truthfully peaceful people who have NOT "risen" but have not "fallen" neither.
Its just like life. Once you "live" which is the existence in a manner that consumes (takes/borrows) from others, your time of existence is finite.
Life, in its particular temporal form, is but a cyclical experience with a beginning and an end.
This goes for stars, plants, microbes, humans, etc.
ANYTHING that consumes.
Hey, see if there are any faculty openings in the Earth School you attend. Tell them I'm cheap.
