Egypt-ology, "Sifting the Sands of Antiquity for Lost Wisdom"

Nefertiti's Welcome to Egypt-ology 

The "Wisdom and Mystery" of Ancient Egypt

Here, Egypt-ology means the study of the "wisdom and mystery of ancient Egypt" with a strong emphasis on their "Metaphysics"!

So, what do we mean by Metaphysics? Great question! The term is composed of two words. "Meta" meaning "of higher order or level," and "physics" meaning "the science of matter, energy, and their interactions." Simply stated, Metaphysics is a "higher order of matter and energy."

But we're not done quite yet: Metaphysics is also considered a "Philosophy." "Philosophy" is also composed of two words. "Philo" meaning "love," and "sophia" meaning "wisdom."

Therefore, we can define the study of Metaphysics as "the desire for a higher knowledge of what is beyond the physical."
Or as we would prefer to think of it as "The Philosophical Study of Being and Knowing."

The "Two Big Questions" of Ancient Egypt

This sets the stage for "THE TWO BIG QUESTIONS" regarding ancient Egypt... "WHY and HOW?"

As important as to the Who, What, Where, and When of ancient Egypt, we at Egypt-ology are equally, if not more, intrigued with the exploration of the "Why and How" of ancient Egypt. Perhaps too much time and effort is spent on looking at the results of their beliefs and too little consideration given as to why they embraced those belief(s) at all.

Ancient Egypt was stellar, colossal, glorious, stupendous, and mysterious!

With the "filters off," we will explore the:

  • ancient Egyptian gods
  • ancient Egyptian names
  • ancient Egyptian religion
  • ancient Egyptian temples
  • ancient Egyptian art
  • ancient Egyptian clothing
  • ancient Egyptian food
  • ancient Egyptian customs

We will examine its extraordinary Kings, Queens, and Pharaoh's such as:

  • Akhenaten
  • Amenhotep
  • Amenhotep 2
  • Amenhotep 3
  • Ramesses I
  • Ramesses II, ( also known as Ramses The Great)
  • Tutmosis
  • Tutankhamun
  • Queen Nefertiti
  • Cleopatra
  • many, many more

What made them great? WHY and HOW did they do the things they did?

We will present and explore the great temples of Egypt and the ancient Egyptian sites. To name just a few:

These temples of ancient Egypt have inspired and awed us throughout the ages. Did you know that some of these were actually observatories?

Egyptian gods and goddesses

It is easy to be bewildered by the great number of gods, and goddesses, the intricate relationships between them and ancient man, and the various forms they took. Our exploration of Egypt would not be complete without recognizing these ancient Egyptian deities from A to Zehuti. Yes, there really is an Egyptian god named A!

The ancient Egyptians worshipped a multitude of gods and goddesses, and an understanding of these "supernatural beings" is crucial for any inquiry into Egyptian religion and mythology.

Ancient Egyptian Values

In bringing forth the wisdom of Egypt, and their "higher order," we will focus on their spirituality and religion. This permeated every aspect of the people and their daily lives. Their religious beliefs and practices accompanied the ancient Egyptians throughout life into death. The importance they placed on religion in their day-to-day existence, sheds light on many details of Egyptian life. Evidence remains of their beliefs and rituals, as well as their moral values and social etiquette.

The spectacular achievements of the ancient Egyptian civilization were possible because of its prosperity. It was truly a "Golden Age." Their prosperity was a direct result of their morality and correct living.

Putting an extreme importance on the afterlife, they believed that the way in which one lived in this life would determine the conditions in which one lived in the next life. Only the morally righteous person could hope to enjoy the afterlife and the heavenly realm with the gods. What triggered this belief?

The ancient Egyptians had very strict moral and ethical standards. If we open our minds to that ancient time, we may feel our "intuitive self" beckoning us toward the "Golden Age," where the power of Heaven, was the power on Earth!
