******No. However, I do believe it is a direct emotional response to their status as "outsiders" within and on the periphery of established Egyptian society. *******
And that is indeed the case with "supremacy complexes". To undertake a position of supremacy is actually a response to feeling inferior.
My claims have been that the reason it is always males behind the folly is because of feeling OUTSIDE of the mother-child relationship. Any father can tell you of the moments of helplessness when there are issues that need to be resolved during pregnancies...and the product of your seed is on the line (fear of annihilation).
It is very interesting how materially constructed "temples" are the recreation of the female body. Somewhere along the line, a disconnect resulted severing the overstanding between the physical/material and the spiritual/energy.
The only explanation for this was the establishment of a supreme monotheistic male deity. And who concocted this divinity structure?
Zoroastrians? Semites? Is there a difference today?
It then became inevitable, as we mentioned how "as above, so below" is an instinctive overstanding, that the associations between masculinity and males, and femininity and females caused us to place females in second (inferior) place.
We must realize, as you have premised, that the indoctrinated religious paradigm has a fail-safe mechanism. The male ego, to name one. (remember how Robocop was programmed with a secret directive to prevent him from harming anyone connected to his programmer's company)
So likewise with us, we are subliminally infected with the PROTECTIONISM of this imbedded universe-view, especially males because it justifies the expression of aggression and control and dominance...its our carrot...its our status that we do not want to surrender because we are bombarded with Victorian-esque images of weak/dainty/toe-nail painting, skirt-wearing subservient femininity instead of overstanding the divine/restorative sub-atomic essence of femininity.
BTW, I say "universe-view" because we are taught to believe that the God of Abraham is the same God whether we were in Cairo, London, Pluto or Sirius.
I will take it a bit further. It is becoming clear to me that a "certain group" conveniently tries to point to (blame, scapegoat) Kemet as the root of Western Civilization mindset (which is a poisonous mindset), when it was actually post-Hyksosian philosophy that originated Western thought.
I first chimed in on you and 360's reasoning with that inquiry.
What is the true nature of Western philosophy?
When you think about it, can it be DISPROVEN that Abrahamic Monotheism is the father of Western Civilization?
