Aryan Diffusion (Part 5)

Kemet

“That world above which Egypt towered like the Theban god Amon above the other many gods of the Nile Valley and of the Empire, was already thousands of years old. … It was an old, old world, in which each people lived slowly and regularly according to long-established Tradition, the origin of which was lost in the past, the meaning of which was being — or had already been — forgotten by all save perhaps a few.” – Savitri Devi

The royalty of early dynastic Nile Valley civilization believed that their ancestral homeland was the land of Punt, a mysterious territory in the distant southeast somewhere along the coast of the Red Sea, considered to be the abode of the “Solar Race” from which they conventionally claimed descent. This is consistent with archaeological evidence indicating that the First Dynasty was established by King Narmer completing the unification of Wadjet (“Lower Egypt”) with Nekhbet (“Upper Egypt”). It follows that the myths of the predynastic god-kings, who were considered the earliest rulers of the Nile Valley far predating Narmer, can be read as a story of Aryan diffusion from the original Punt following the Nile downstream. In this context, the political expansion from Nekhbet to Wadjet was merely the last stretch of a much longer journey. However, there has been no archaeological consensus on the precise location or size of Punt: almost all theorists agree that it must have existed, but none can be sure where.

Punt might have been somewhere in Ethiopia, insulated from the neighbouring regions by the Ethiopian Highlands. Not coincidentally, Hitler saw “herrenvolk” potential among modern-day Ethiopians – provided they get rid of those among them who self-identify as Israelites. (Note that Upper Egypt is lower down on the map than Lower Egypt; “Upper” refers to the upstream direction of the Nile.) 

Punt might have included Somalia, as on this map, which shows a possible sea route to/from the Indus Valley (see two pages earlier) and hence potential cultural exchange, including introduction of bananas to Punt and finger millet to Harappa. (An alternate theory claims bananas were introduced in a later era via Madagascar by the Yue (see three pages earlier)). Curiously, some of the oldest cave paintings in Somalia depict cow worship. Also curiously, Jainism is popular in the modern-day east coast countries.

Punt might also have included Saba, an isolated arable region on the southernmost tip of the Arabian Peninsula (Yemen) easily accessible from the Eritrean coast even by small boats. The later-era Axumite Empire definitely included Saba.

The climatic backdrop to this mythology is the Holocene Wet Phase, when the Sahara region turned from desert to savanna and then back to desert over the course of several thousand years. The grassland Sahara invited an influx of surrounding nomadic populations – hunter-gatherer as well as herder (the latter with possible Turanian influence, the most likely candidates for the introduction of sheep and goats to the region) - and enabled easy migration along the east-west axis, prompting intermittent arrival through the millenia of small migrant populations to the Nile Valley from the west. Redesertification then drove out in mass virtually all populations from the re-expanding Sahara desert, so that migration to the Nile Valley occurred in even greater numbers. In this way the Nile Valley became the meeting place of many bloodlines of extremely different characters.

Sahara herders were driven out in all directions, in turn driving existing inhabitants of the surrounding areas even further out in a domino effect. Ultimately, this drove non-Aryans into the Horn of Africa by going around the south of the Ethiopian Highlands, thus bringing about the corruption of Punt.

Oblivious to the larger picture, Puntians were migrating into the Nile Valley from the south at the same time as everyone else was migrating from the west.

The oldest known cereal-based settled culture in the region is the pre-Neolithic Kubbaniya culture in the Nile basin itself. However, archaeology suggests that the Kubbaniya people were not actually cultivating the land as such, but merely harvesting the wild cereal crops that grew in abundance on the banks of the Nile. Also, it is unknown what happened to the Kubbaniya people after they were displaced by incoming hunting and fishing populations. It is possible that some of them moved into Punt and there developed Neolithic farming techniques in order to resume their settled lifestyle in this new location where wild cereals were not effortlessly available. It is of course also perfectly possible that the mythical Puntians – the earliest sun-worshippers on the entire continent – were a different people altogether. Either way, cereal farming suddenly appeared in the geographically secluded Ethiopian Highlands.

The first known leader of the Puntians was Ra, who as a boy once ventured into the outside world on his own and wept at the great evil that he saw there. The story that men came forth from his tears either means that Ra’s reaction represents the first incidence of a hitherto racially nonexistent Aryan personality (which also explains the myth of the Eye of Ra as the ultimate avenger of injustice), or refers to his subsequent decision as king to send his people out of Punt to acculturate the primitive populations in the Nile Valley, or both. It was only later garbled into a literal creation myth, just as Ra was later misinterpreted as the sun itself. Similarly, the story of Ra’s struggle against Apep simply represents his resolve to combat worldly violence, and was only later reworked into a tale of the sun having to battle a giant snake below the horizon after sunset every evening in order to rise again the next morning. The most significant of Ra’s followers to settle the Nile with farming and associated Neolithic crafts were Khnum, Geb, Seshat, Maat and Serket.

With help from his first wife Menhit (the likely original inspiration for the later-era character Sekhmet), Khnum militarily defeated the hostile hunting and fishing clans that they initially encountered, but then took the non-Aryan Satet of Abu (hunter) and Anuket of Abu (fisher) as additional wives, and thus chose to stay in the land that would later come to be called Ta Seti, meaning “Land of Bows”. Myths from further north say Khnum also married the non-Aryan Neith of Zau (hunter). Figuratively this is not inconsistent, as it merely reflects the ubiquitous pattern that Paleolithic populations continue their old ways regardless of being introduced to Neolithic infrastructure. Archaeological clues indicate that the hunting populations here and further north were virtually identical, as were the farming settlers here and further north, making the myth even more accurate. In addition to their crops, the spearheads and dagger blades of the farmers were made not of local stone but of obsidian from Ethiopia, further confirming a Puntian origin.

“Just as the blood of the conqueror, who was a conqueror not only in body but also in spirit, got submerged in the blood of the subject race, so the substance disappeared out of which the torch of human culture and progress was kindled.” – Adolf Hitler

The obvious conclusion should have been that the Western racial model is a failed model.

Which skull looks more Aryan? (Note: the two photos are not to scale, therefore judge by shape only.)

Hieroglyph writing was brought to Wadjet from Nekhbet, belying the former assumption that it came from the Near East. According to myth, Seshat invented writing and taught it to the primitives, along with mathematics and many other subjects.

Geb made a similar mistake by marrying the non-Aryan Nut of the Atum herding clan from the climatically altering west (Nut’s symbolic parents Tefnut and Shu were personifications of moisture and wind, while Nut herself is associated with the starlit night sky on which herders rely for navigation), leading to Geb’s retroactive absorption into the Atum clan, to the extent that not only was Geb later portrayed as Nut’s brother as well as her husband, but also Atum later came to be equated with Ra. From the offspring of Geb and Nut comes the Osiris/Horus vs Set power contest that is of no relevance to us. We only note the crook and flail held by Osiris as symbolic of the merging of farming and herding into a single lifestyle from that point onwards, probably corresponding to Badari culture – precursor to Wadjet (see next paragraph) -  in archaeological terms.

Likewise, Seshat was retroactively absorbed into the geneaology of the non-Aryan Thoth, just as the bloodline of the more technically sophisticated Amratian culture – precursor to Nekhbet having pushed the Badari northward - that included irrigation, mud-brick construction and hieroglyphs, became mixed with successive nomadic waves from the west with Sahara desertification in full swing. Amratian culture is also present in Ta Seti, suggesting a scenario of Khnum’s descendants having lost control so completely that Seshat had had to reconquer Ta Seti and re-institute Aryan standards, but only to lose control again, this time to incoming herders (corresponding to the rise of Nubian A-Group culture). The story of Thoth’s marriage to Ra’s daughter Maat further parallels a fundamental corruption of the corresponding intellectual concept of “Ma’at” from meaning (as Ra intended) absolute and perfect moral good to (by Thoth’s either dull or knowingly deceptive misinterpretation) mere cosmic balance, harmony and stability, thereby opening the way for the name of Ra - the personality behind it buried – to later be conveniently fused with that of any other god that might come along.

This Nile Valley rock carving indicates that the swastika was an important symbol in pre-Dynastic times. The symbol on the left foot might be the Eye of Ra.

By Dynastic Egypt, an extremely wide symbolic lexicon was in use, with the swastika having become a miscellany. The predominant symbol of Egyptian tradition was the ankh (not shown in this picture).

A good sign of degeneration is the decorative embellishment of the swastika is turned into a more complex symbol than it originally was.

Serket represents the Aryan blood memory persisting among the Nekhbet rulers – the Scorpion King bloodline - long after it had been lost and forgotten among the peasantry. In dutifully unifying the crowns of Wadjet and Nekhbet and then proactively rediscovering and re-establishing contact with Punt, they might have been able to recover Aryan culture, except that by then Punt itself - millenia past since the time of Ra - had long ago deteriorated through racial mixing (probably with A-Group people whose pottery styles have been found as far east as Eritrea) into a land of mere technical knowledge and material riches. This was the Punt that the early dynasties retrieved and naively assumed to be the civilization of their ancestors, calling it Ta Netjer (meaning “Land of Gods”). Correspondingly, the idea of enlightened kingship as an antidote to Aryan blood poisoning among the masses was no longer understood, and over time Serket became confused first with Maftet (who cured literal scorpion stings) and later even with Osiris’ wife Isis.

Predictably, Egyptian tradition became arguably the most resistant to revolution anywhere in the world, with ritualism, propriety and conservative expectation in every aspect of life, de-emphasizing the individual personality for the sake of maintaining social stability over the massive population supported by (and required to administrate) the fully economically utilized Nile basin. This skewed the intellectual energies of its people towards technology rather than idealism, creating a society of advanced methods but no deep philosophical conversation comparable to those possessed by the other ancient civilizations. Such was Egyptian tradition that while the Turanian (almost certainly Israelite) infiltrators from the Near East (best known as the Hyksos or “Shepherd Kings”) who subverted the state on at least two occasions, one of which would correspond to the Tanakh story (“The head scoundrel, the modest Joseph, had pretty well prepared: the seven lean cows, all the granaries filled, the people raging with hunger, the reigning Pharaoh a perfect flunky of the Jews, and Joseph, with a corner on the grain supply, ‘ruler over all the land’! (Genesis 41:43). All the lamentations of the Egyptians were in vain; the Jew held the warehouse closed with an iron fist until they, in return for a bit of bread, were obliged to give away first their money, then their cattle and their land, and finally their freedom. And suddenly the capital was swarming with Jews; old Jacob was there, and ‘his sons, and his sons’ sons with him, his daughters, and his sons’ daughters, and all his seed’ (Genesis 46:7) — the entire hodgepodge.” – Adolf Hitler) could easily legitimize their rule via appropriation of the native traditional symbols, by the same token the native tradition itself underwent minimal change and could smoothly continue after the Turanians departed as if nothing had happened. The name of the land “Egypt” (from “Hwkaptah” meaning “home of the soul of Ptah”) which had replaced the original Aryan name (see section title) is wholly apt, as indeed underlying the entire civilization were the values of Ptah.

“Pyramids and mummification are not the expression of an otherworldly feeling of eternity. They are but a crass assertion of existence. The reason why Egypt became so incomprehensibly rigid was that everything was placed or forced into the service of this world.” – Alfred Rosenberg

Such as it was, the only individual with any chance of overthrowing Egyptian tradition had to be one fortunate enough to be positioned at the very top of the social hierarchy, namely the king himself. A king with Aryan blood memory did not appear until King Amenhotep IV of the Eighteenth Dynasty, who renamed himself Akhnaten and introduced Atenism as a direct challenge to the traditionalists, in particular the Amunists who wielded most political influence at the time, and who had irreverently fused Ra’s name with Amun’s purely for the sake of consolidating the latter.

“It was the dead formalism of the Amon worship and the increasing arrogance of its enormously wealthy priesthood that Akhnaton intended to strike at. What he wanted was not to force onto his people a new religion of his own liking in the place of the old one, but to infuse into their hearts the genuine spirit of religion; to awaken them, from the routine of formulas, of symbols, of endless ceremonies, of which the original inspiration had long ago disappeared and the hidden meaning been forgotten, to the feeling of the Supreme Reality, through the rational worship of the living Sun.” – Savitri Devi

“All archaeologists agree that not only was Akhnaton himself “no hunter,” but that there is in his reign no evidence of hunting, as though the cruel sport had been forbidden, or at least strongly discouraged.” – Savitri Devi

Whereas the traditional gods were tribalist patrons of Egyptian interests alone, Atenism introduced the sun (“Aten”) as a universal god who cared for the welfare of all the world’s inhabitants, and taught the same sentiment among its followers via contemplation of sunlight under open air. It dissolved the priesthoods, banned sacrifices and systematically defaced images depicting most of the traditional gods; exceptions were Mnevis the supreme cow and Thoueris the supreme hippopotamus - Akhnaten presented himself correspondingly as the supreme human through whom alone could the will of the sun be communicated to all other humans. (While Mnevis was permitted, the traditional cow-goddess Hathor was proscribed, further reinforcing that Akhnaten sought archetypes, not patron figures. In the same way, Horus and other supposed solar patrons were proscribed; only Ra was allowed to be associated with the sun.) Some theories claim that Atenism was not original but rather an adaptation of a prehistoric Nubian solar cult taught to Akhnaten by his mother Queen Tiye (who is also rumoured to have been involved in the death of her older son Crown Prince Thutmose, a priest of Ptah, so as to allow the younger prince to take the throne instead), however there is no reason why it could not have been an original development inspired by Aryan blood memory alone. Either way, Atenism almost certainly came closer than Egyptian tradition to resembling the original sun-worship of Ra’s Punt. On this account, it proved altogether unpalatable to the heavily non-Aryan blood of Egypt, which promptly rejected it following Akhnaten’s death, and not only reinstated Egyptian tradition but did its best to erase even Akhnaten’s existence from official historical record. (“His memory was solemnly cursed. To the Egyptians, who had returned to their many traditional gods, he became known only as “that criminal” — for it was a punishable offence even to utter his name.” – Savitri Devi) Only in the late 19th century was Akhnaten rediscovered via the unearthing of Akhetaten, the city he had newly built to replace Thebes as state capital. Almost at once Zionist agents began to heap confusion and bias onto Amarna history by spreading various rumours, from allegations of incest between Akhnaten and Tiye (suggesting that the legend of Oedipus and Jocasta is based on them) or between Akhnaten and his intended heir Smenkhare, to the notion that Thutmose had not died but had escaped, and was actually the same person as Moses (see previous page)!

“As soon as the king passed away, most of those whom he had taught, and loved and rewarded, made haste to join the reaction against his whole life’s work, while not one of them had the courage to walk in his footsteps, against the tide. … Could the youthful founder of the Aton cult come back today, among us who should have grown wiser but who did not, he would, it seems, remain as alone as he was in his far gone days of strife—too good for this earth.” – Savitri Devi

It is uncertain whether or not Ra sent Puntian expeditions in other directions. Westward Aryan diffusion was less likely a Puntian expedition than a different branch of the displaced Kubbaniya people who migrated west and independently developed farming in the central Sahel, following which the Sahara climate change propelled their second relocation into the Orimiri basin where they mixed with the indigenous primitive populations, consistent with the westward spread of irrigation technology. Numerous local lores support this notion, with a few (e.g. Anaang lore) specifying a Nile origin and others postulating a non-specific eastern origin,. The most well-known among these is the Yoruba story which tells of the sun god Olorun giving Obatala a bag of special soil with which to make the local land arable. However, Obatala became drunk on the wine that he was able to produce from the soil and neglected his task, thus requiring Odudua to take it over. Obatala only arrived after the task had already been completed by Odudua (whose descendants had multiplied enormously as a consequence), and devoted the rest of his life to teaching asceticism (including teetotalism!) to the locals. This might suggest that cultural dispersal outpaced demic dispersal in this region. The combination of lost initiative and unfavourable demographics ensured that Aryan influence was to have limited impact. Some theories tenuously try to equate Olorun with Ra, but it is easier to consider Olorun as a Sahelian counterpart to Ra, perhaps the original teacher of irrigation and other techniques to the people whose descendants became the Garamantes (who themselves claimed descent from Garamas, a mysterious “Son of the Sun”).

 Absence of cultivation (until much later) in the southern part of the region containing wild crops reinforces the model of Sahelian migration in response to Sahara desertification. The Sahelians would have had no reason to migrate further than was necessary to resume their lifestyle, and in particular would have avoided the dense tropical rainforest of the Congo area which was filled with Gentiles (“Congo” literally means “hunter”). Southward expansion of yam and other cultivated crops only occurred with migration of later-era Bantu-speakers driven by population explosion.

Somehow the swastika found its way to the Volta basin, where it was picked up by Ashanti culture. (Did Obatala pass through this region while he was drunk?)

Obatala’s teachings produced varied results. Ochossi ignored them completely and stayed in the forest as a hunter. Inle divided his time between forest and farm (on account of which Ochossi accused him of homosexuality!). Oko took up farming full-time but maintained pre-Aryan animal sacrifice rituals and other traditions. Only Aganju, Obatala’s son-in-law, was fully acculturated. (It has been theorized that the later-era popularity of Sufism in the Orimiri basin, even as recently as Timbuktu during the Mali Empire, indicates resonance with remnant Aryan blood.)

“It is also an interesting fact that among the negroes the children of those tribes which are primarily vegetarian develop more harmoniously than those of the tribes in which it is customary for the mother to feed her infant up to the age of four or five.” – Adolf Hitler

As for southward Aryan diffusion, domesticated crops and farming methods of Puntian origin eventually spread below the equator with migration of later-era Cushitic-speakers at least as far south as Lake Nyasa, while later-era Bantu-speakers from the west eventually also spread originally Sahelian crops south and east. While both groups had by this time largely incorporated herding into their lifestyle (linguistic clues suggest the Bantu-speakers received cattleherding from the Cushitic-speakers, and were in turn responsible for introducing it to indigenous primitives such as San peoples of the Kalahari region), some myths suggest reunion between remnant Aryan individuals among each, leading to temporary racial renewal. The most famous of these is the Ganda story of Princess Nambi of the Lungfish clan (Bantu-speakers), who fell in love with the hermit Kintu (whose ancestors were from the northeast) whom she had encountered living on an isolated farm near Lake Nalubaale with only his single cow as a companion. Displeased with the romance and skeptical towards Nambi’s praises of Kintu, Nambi’s herder father and brothers first tempted Kintu with beef and beer, which Kintu refused, and then stole Kintu’s cow, placed it among their herd of sixty thousand cattle and challenged Kintu to pick out his cow, which Kintu succeeded in doing. Nambi’s father thus grudgingly sanctioned their marriage, following which Kintu and Nambi (together with Kintu’s cow and Nambi’s chicken) built up a village of their own cultivating not only local finger millet and sorghum but also pearl millet and other crops brought by Nambi from the west, had three children and eventually founded the idealistic Kabaka dynasty (which some theorists associate with Urewe culture archaeologically). But Nambi’s younger brother Walumbe, who persuaded Nambi to let him live with them, soon recorrupted the royal bloodline. After Nambi’s eventual death, Kintu ultimately became a hermit again out of disgust towards the evil of his own descendants. It is said that the much later-era ruler King Mawanda of Buganda once came across Kintu still alive in the wilderness and begged to be taught by him, but was refused as soon as Kintu saw one of Mawanda’s courtiers also present.

“The Aryan neglected to maintain his own racial stock unmixed and therewith lost the right to live in the paradise which he himself had created.” – Adolf Hitler

Another notable story from Lozi lore tells of populations referred to as the Luyi (meaning “foreigner”) settling as far south as the Zambezi basin and beyond, with a royal dynasty known as the Litunga (meaning “keepers of the earth”) (which nominally exists to this day among Lozi clans). Nyambe, the first known Litunga, taught the primitive man Kamunu skills including cereal farming, animal domestication, pottery, carpentry and metalworking. To Nyambe’s horror, Kamunu soon ignored his instructions to treat the domesticated animals as siblings and instead started slaughtering and eating them. Unable to stop Kamunu, Nyambe attempted to move away, but Kamunu followed him everywhere he moved until Nyambe was left with no other choice but to leave the world altogether and go to heaven. The same pattern of Aryans acculturating and then being displaced by non-Aryans occurs in this case even without mixing of blood.

“There are territories where the Aryan can establish fixed settlements by means of the technical skill which he has developed in the course of more than a thousand years, even though these territories would otherwise have to be abandoned, unless the Aryan were willing to wander about them in nomadic fashion; but his technical tradition and his age-long experience of the use of technical means would probably make the nomadic life unbearable for him.” – Adolf Hitler

Bantu knowledge of ironworking without bronzeworking suggests influence from a post-Sahelian Nile expedition. This could mean both Puntian and Sahelian bloodlines can be found further south.

One last branch of Aryan diffusion from Punt worth attention is the one proceeding from Saba. In Judaic lore, Ishmael, the son of Abraham and Hagar, was perceived as anti-traditional in personality and hence a threat to Isaac, the son of Abraham and Sarah, on account of which Abraham exiled both Hagar and Ishmael from his clan. After wandering through many unwelcoming lands, Hagar and Ishmael were finally offered refuge by the Jurhum clan of Mecca. The Jurhum were originally sun-worshipping Sabaean farmers who had only migrated to Mecca after the destruction of the Dam of Marib on which they had depended for irrigating their crops. Ishmael eventually married a Jurhum princess, so the Ishmaelites – and thus Mohammed (see previous page) - had certain Aryan ancestry despite Mecca being a desert city. Some sources say that Hagar herself had royal blood from the line of the prophet Saleh of the Thamud or Ad people, said to originate from the south but the superior minority of whom Saleh had led north after sending an earthquake to bury alive the inferior majority for killing a camel during a famine (against Saleh’s orders), and therefore could have originally been Sabaeans also. In this case, Ishmael would have been merely marrying back into his Aryan side. (Some Islamic theorists unaware of the Punt connection have attributed Sabaean farming to Cain (see previous page), which is not strictly impossible but far less geographically plausible (“As we have said, Saba means south, “that which comes from the south.”" – Miguel Serrano).) Mohammed’s characteristically Sabaean loathing of Bedouin (ie. Turanian) tradition since his childhood and his subsequent lifelong promotion of Mohammedan qualities which were the exact opposite of Bedouinist (“Bedouin” literally means “desert dweller”) qualities - sensitivity instead of callousness, humility instead of machismo, community spirit instead of nepotism - is easy to understand as a rebellion of Aryan blood memory in an unusual habitat. Mohammedanism calls heaven itself ”Jannah”, which simply means “garden”.

Over the former Punt itself later arose the Axumite Empire. While the general population was by then of low quality, the state adopted Christianity and joined the anti-Zionist coalition, for which Jews retaliated by burning every church in Zafar. Axum pioneered Christian-Mohammedan solidarity when it offered refuge to early Mohammedans fleeing Zionist and Bedouinist persecution, with King Ashama declaring it Christian duty to always protect Mohammedans on account of shared reverence for Jesus. After Mohammed achieved political power, he reciprocally declared it Mohammedan duty to always protect Christians, thereby completing the pact between the two groups.

The eschatalogical legend of the Mahdi fighting side by side with the Second Christ – and winning – in the final conflict against the Jewish Messiah might well have been inspired by this event. This would be Punt’s last gift to the world, but in the wake of more than a thousand years of Zionist scheming to erase this prophecy at any cost, it is a gift that remains visible only to the few. As was the direction of the past, so too the direction of the future rests with us: we who see with the Eye of Ra.
