We, the Sons and Daughters of "Africa's" Great Sperms and Ovum, Let Us This Day of 6086 N.Y. / 1986 C.E. Speak as One Voice, Academically

Article excerpt

The following was presented to the Association for the Study of Classical African Civilization

Declaration

We come before you in peace, and thus avow truth in the presence of our Elders as they grant us permission to begin this presentation as an offering before our fellow Africans. This we do, as we humble ourselves to become within the entire unit of the common womb, or heaven, called mother Alkebu-lan/"Africa" which binds us all. Thus this neophyte, a "son of light," Yosef speaks in and through our wisdom of the sages.

Coming before you free of anyone's religious commitment, open to anyone's spiritual affirmation, accepting the premise of an ever-present African spiritual force or forces; but at the same instance refusing to have it or them imposed upon this institution of exoterical and esoterical investigation. as such, I beseech the you in me that comprise the oneness the law of opposites demands of us all to strongly guide my delivery this day.

By virtue of my commitment made both in writing and orally, I must decline any other spiritual cleavage not already demonstrated by our forefathers on the walls, columns and ceilings in the sacred and most holy tombs, temples and pyramids, along with those on obelisks, stelae and papyri, etc.; as it is within this tradition that my tried, proven and duly sworn brethren, we have been charged with not exacting for change say aspect of the sacred and most holy teachings of the priests and scribes as acquiesced in the authority of the chief priest of the orient.

The sacred and most holy texts to which I affirm prohibits tampering; as the order of Egyptian education system, otherwise misnomer "Egyptian mysteries system," makes mandatory obligation cause for the release of the Khat, remembering brother George G.M. James' variance on this point, I find it quite appropriate to quote that "a loose tongue is not half as bad as a deliberately perverted pen in the hands of an over-ambitious scribe who alters a sacred and most holy papyrus." let us, then, remember that "caution" is the watch word for our constant behavior. Yet it is within this vain we have the law of opposites to release our conscious state of equilibrium to accomplish the necessary calculations our sages taught us.

Introduction

Seldom, if ever in the last five years, have I delivered a "Written Address" to any group whatsoever; be it socio-political, religious, secular and/or academic? This is the first of what I hope will be a continuous stream of such efforts. Its cause, which I believe to be historic, warrants specific documentation in light of the pitfalls of previous African Academic gatherings purported to be all-encompassing, yet totally dominated by one group or another that sought to manipulate everyone else.

Most importantly about this conference, or gathering, is the absence of the need to adopt any individual's religious, political, economic and/or social dogma. Thus our clear path towards the development of an African research repository; let me reemphasize this point, I said: we are here to create an African research repository, the materials to be used by each and every African man, woman and child according to his or her comprehension. For this reason, i suggest that we fully extend our African hands of friendship to every one of the African family/race; thus let it be the hallmark as against mine, and African for black.

Although we, any combination of us, may have a particular "religious orientation" or "way of life" let it be remembered that our African ancestors along the entire length1 and breath2 of the white and blue Nile-from the furthest point south at the Republic of Uganda3 to the opposite end north at the Republic of Egypt4-left a sufficient legacy in terms of the Book of the Coming Forth by Day and Night 5, Book of Gates 6, Book of Deities 7, and other works to the extent that any superfluous extraction and expansion of either of them, be it from the minds of Hebrew, Christian, Moslem, Hindu, Yoruba, et al. …
