  1. Somewhere I read that: Nature is composed of one intelligence. Man Is a part of nature; therefore man’s intelligence connects him to the universe. This ontological concept seems to be the nucleus of ancient Kemetic thought [ Thoth] as illustrated in Anthony Browder’s “African Origins Of Christmas”. To gain self-knowledge the Africans of antiquity were saying– Man must look outside of himself to another cosmos and apply what he learns from the external to himself, with such axioms as : He who hath the sun hath life; the S-U-N and not the SON. The late historian,poet Gerald Massey once said— “For the divine in man is of the identical essence of the light of the sun”. All in all Mr. Browder’s enlightening information on this topic goes hand in hand with another ancient African adage,Know Thyself!

  2. I had the pleasure of meeting him when I was 19 years old and it changed my life forever. I appreciate you taking the time to educate us beyond repairing and conditioning our minds to think differently other than what they have force fed to US.

    Thank you
