Mine would be an alternate timeline where Data didn't die, and I would be a female android made by another scientist (maybe Soong had an apprentice?) and Data and I would fall in love and be mates. We'd figure out how to reproduce our species together and live together for eternity.

"Bald-headed Bastard" Actually, the person who came-up with this nick later acquired one of his own: "the Unfortunate Mr. Penninger" but that was much later. The bhb found himself on my shitlist (only in pencil though) because he went out with me so that he could hit-on my friend. My ENGAGED and living with her fiance friend. I was grumbling about how tacky I thought this was when the Unfortunate burst out "bald-headed bastard!"

I was working at a Dreamjob (tm) and working on my MA in history at this time and the bhb would come to the Reading Room and ask for various archival materials. This was totally cool since that was the purpose of the RR. What was decidedly less cool was that he would come-in about 30 minutes before closing time and raise a stink when we would politely show him the door at (drumroll please) 10 minutes AFTER closing time. This was how the bhb nick stuck to the poor guy (unbeknownst to him of course) since we got pretty fed-up with his notion that closing time was for peons and not for the likes of him. One day our unit head overhead us referring to John as the bhb and after that always called him "your friend the bald-headed bastard."

***My dreamjob was working as the acting University Archivist at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. I was on a 1 year contract and expected to be offered the position permanently at the end of that time. Instead they hired someone else and I became unemployed.***

Writer's Block: From beyond

If you died and became a ghost and could only haunt one place, which place would you choose, and why?

The library in the world with the greatest and most diverse selection of books in English - I mean, if I was dead, and therefore had all the time in the world, and none of the responsibilities I had in life, then what would I love to do more than read, read and read some more? And when I finished all the books in that library, I could possess a librarian and order more from other libraries through interlibrary loans! I would be the happiest, most content ghost to ever have... well, not lived, per se, but you get my drift.

Haha! Yes! XD
My friend and I named these four guys at school because we had no idea who they were but would talk about them or point them out in the hallways so we had to name them! There was Gay Guy and Phone Dude first. Gay Guy was called gay guy because he just gave off this gay vibe so yeah. Phone Dude was named that because he asked my friend if she needed to call someone on his phone after school one day because her mom was late picking her up. Then, there was Creepy Glare Guy and Muscle Shirt Guy! Creepy Glare Guy was called this because everytime my friend saw in the hall she would creepily glare at him and make petting motions towards his back lol. Muscle Shirt Guy's name should be obvious; we called him that because he was some hot guy in a muscle shirt when we first saw him.
We also named an asian friend of ours Conner Kent because he wore this plaid shirt all the time along with glasses. We would of called him Clark Kent but he was to mean to be called that sooo Conner Kent it was!

Well, I never gave anyone a nickname except myself. Others however given me many. When I was 7, they called me a name of children's decease which translates as Measles.

When I was 14 for about 4 months people called me Halloween. This is because I have told the niece of my cousin-in-law about what happened on October 31, 1992. Just my luck that it's a holiday whey all the scary things come out & I have witch's hair.

In Fall of 1993, Paul gave me 2 nicknames. One was KGB for my ability to walk quietly and other traits. The other was Karkusha, for those who are not Russian, she is a female crow puppet on the Russian evening show for children. This is because of my hair again.

Shefox is the nickname I have myself. I used to play a fox when I was 5 in a preschool play. Plus I love foxes.

My current friends call me behind my back - poodle. This is again because of my hair.

Well it's mostly teachers in our school..

1) There is a teacher we call 'Mandarin bitch' 'cause one of my friends was throwing mandarin peels around her, and then this teacher came up to our class in the beginning of lesson to whine about those peels. Its stupid i know, but we all got stuck to it.

2) Then we call one teacher a 'Turkey ass' (oh god we're horrible people :D) 'cause her ass is literally _a meter wide. If she accidentally bumps you passing the hallway, and you stay alive and not injured, congratulations.

Our class is just, insane.

Our nicknames happened as natural as "normal" conversation goes.

We have Krayzee. Just because she is.

We have Vyolense. Because of her tendency to thwap.

We have Rowmantick. Because she dreams of her happily ever after.

We are different, but we're a little bit of each other. We are the SS Troika.

Writer's Block: Collect 'em all

Do you collect anything? If so, what do you collect, and what made you start your collection?

This is just the question for me! I collect adaptations of select classic gothic literature - books, comics, movies, games, you name it. I first started collecting various versions of The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, and my collection of them has become downright enormous, but recently my interests have expanded to also include The Picture of Dorian Gray and Frankenstein, and I've begun collecting different adaptations of those as well.

I started collecting adaptatins of Jekyll and Hyde because I was a fan of Jekyll & Hyde: the Musical by Frank Wildhorn, and I wanted to learn about what movies had inspired it. Then, I just became fascinated by how the story was told differently in all these different adaptations - what characters were added, taken out, changed or made the opposite gender; what plot points were kept, which were changed; how did these changes transform the ultimate message of the story; what did I think worked and what didn't. I was enthralled by its multiplicity - the story is greater than any one version of it to me, but is like one whole shining gem that has a thousand different facets that make it up, and each facet is the gem, and yet the gem itself is more than all of its facets put together.

I have expanded my obsession from that story specifically to more of the same kind as it because I see in them these common themes - to me, all three of these tales seems to be themselves different facets of some larger jewel - and I see connections, similarities between the three that draw me in. Plus, my collection of Jekyll and Hyde material is almost as complete as I can make it, and letting my obsession grow and alter allows it to continue burning passionately, and allows me to continue to be a collector.

Got two seperate incidents:

My boss (a total jerk) we named him Palmer after Final Fantasy 7's head of the Space Development. First of all because my boss is a huge fan of America's space program and all things outer space. (Except roswell and alien lore, go figure? Weirdo). 2nd of all, he's just as hyper and bouncy as Palmer stealing Cid's aircraft.

2nd name had to be Hecati for this lovely ex-friend of mine in grade school. I don't want to talk about it. >_

Writer's Block: Tobacco road

Would you want your city to outlaw smoking on public streets? Why or why not?

YES PLEASE. Unless someone invents a bubble that can be put over the heads of smokers that they would be required to wear that would allow them to breathe and not suffocate, but keep all their smoke trapped in the bubble, so people who didn't want to be subjected to carcinogenic air wouldn't have to breathe it. If an alcoholic went around forcing everyone within a ten-foot radius of them to drink a sip of their beer, we'd put a stop to that. But that's the equivalent of what smokers do to non-smokers who are near them. Plus, they litter SO MUCH, leaving butts everywhere all over the ground, and even in places where there's a trash or an outdoor ashtray within ten feet, or even two feet of them.

I spend most of my year living on a university campus, and I get so fed up with the smell of tobacco smoke whenever I'm outside. Especially on the most beautiful days - I would go out and enjoy sunshine and lie on the grass a lot more often if I didn't know that smokers like to go to those exact same areas on lovely days to smoke, and ruin the fresh air.

There was a few in high school, but in those cases it was because we didn't have a good relationship with that person so we gave them nickname so other people can't easily figure out who we were talking about.

And since coming to Japan, there had been a lot of nicknames going around. Most cases are just to distinguish people cause there are too many duplicate names. I think one of the funnier ones is "Captain Fantastic"... I think. I remember it's "Captain" something but I can never quite remember what the second word is.

If you could be any Star Trek character, who would you be, and why?


Either Kes or Seven of Nine, I think. (no laughing! Voyager is my Star Trek, okay. I grew up with it. I bummed TV off a neighbor to watch Endgame and fangirled all over his living room. Mine.)

Seven... is more who I am, and not who I would want to be. I've seen people with Asperger's compared to Data, who is essentially something more than human wanting to become less, to be human, and Seven is sort of that in reverse. Less than human (from humans' perspective - I'm sure the Borg would disagree!) but wanting, tentatively, to become more.

And... she's loved. She's loved very, very much, in lots of different ways, by people and aliens and holograms, and it's okay for her to be imperfect and improper and unsure.

Kes is loved, too, which is why I mentioned her. ...really, everyone on Voyager is loved. It's why Voyager is my favorite 'Trek; you can't not notice how much love Kathryn has for her crew.

(But Kes has Neelix, and that's something very sweet and special and, okay, so incredibly adorable I can hardly stand it.)

In three words, how would you describe Lady Gaga?

WEIRD. TALENTED. CREATIVE.

hahahahaha, everyone's weird, admit it. The shunned ones are probably the normal ones in society, I'm sure. Lady gaga's got some weird taste in clothing and production, but that doesn't mean it in a bad way. She's incredibly talented. That's for sure. She can capture the ears and eyes of audiences and she creates music for all kinds of aspects. She may seem like she goes over the top or crosses the borderline of sensitive topics, but that's her. She takes risks, and guess what, it works. And how can one say that she's not creative? Just from her outfits, I think normal was just catapulted out the window. Either way, she has the makings to be an artist that will stay strong in this industry for a long, long time, no matter how outrageous her projects are.

We had a boss who had long straight black hair. and a slightly reddish skin tone.
About twice a day she used to make a little tour of the various offices to satisfy herself that we were all working.
When bosses were furtively hanging around the main office for no apparent reason...we used to say warn each other to look busy by saying things like "look out.....undercover elephant" meaning that an "undercover elephant" is pretty obvious.

The worst offending "undercover elephant" was the red faced woman with straight black hair.
Denis, my co-worker started joking that she might look slightly "native american" and would whisper things like the "Apaches have left the reservation" every time she left the office. And we used to carry on the "Indian joke" as furtively as we could.
For example if she looked out a window, we would whisper that she was looking for "smoke signals".

Hmmm I guess you had to be there.
But one night I saw a Raquel Welch movie called "Walks Far Woman".
And one day when she left the office for her walk around the building to check that we were all working. And Denis did one of his "on the warpath" jokes and I said we should call her "Walks Far Woman".....and somehow it stuck.
Our boss became "Walks Far Woman".
And I got the kudos for making the funny.

Well, I have at work.  We have a serious problem with some full-time people hogging the one busy register on the floor--Polo--and then relegating everyone else to the uninhabited lands of Young Men's, INC, and Shirts and Ties.  Those few full-timers always make 200-300% of their sales goal, while the rest of us can't make it at all.  So we have named Barbara "The Barb Wire Fence" (because she ropes all of the customers into her area and doesn't let them go), Marcie "Marcy's Playground" (for much the same reason) and Cliff "The Hero" (because he swoops in and saves the day by stealing your sales).  Also, my manager just recently got the nickname "Connie Cares," which is a play on a pitch line for a local car dealership, because nothing matters to her except making her numbers.

General Chang, I always loved villains and he embodied the perfect opposite to Capt. Kirk. Not a a spectrum opposite but as a mirro Kirk that was a Klingon who was intolerant of change. Though Kirk as always manages to change his ways for the better of the universe, Chang would never. Where Khan was pain, anguish, and thirst for revenge, Chang was pure chess playing hate. Something akin to the Batman and Joker. This is of course in my opinion.

Well shoot, I have to answer this one.

It should be well known that Chekov of Reboot is my favorite character. Picard is my Captain. And that being as unintelligent as I am, I am constantly wishing I were smarter, and Sheldon from BBT is a little boy of mine. So... Spock would be a fairly good choice because my Sheldon would look to me as a hero, my husband would be Picard's predecessor (Kirk is kind of sexy, I guess, he's mostly just adorable, but what the hell, Kirk can be my beard-husband any day), and I could make Chekov do his puppy face for me any time I want.

Haa seriously? I would be Bones because he's such a GOOD person who always does the right thing, even if he bitches while doing it. He has such a clear sense of what is and isn't right and he sticks to it always, along with his principles. I also just find him amazing and entirely awesome. He was the first Star Trek character I wrote, and remains my favorite.

I also love his intense loyalty to his friends, and his willingness to take things on in order to save said friends. I'm thinking of The Empath here, where he knocks out Kirk and Spock to be the one tortured instead. I wish I could be as brave, as selfless, and as amazing a person as he is. :)

...Does Shatner count as a character? because I'd totally love to be him too. I admire the way he embraces life and people and new situations and his generosity and amazing enthusiasm for EVERYTHING life has to offer. I'm not actually sure if I want to BE him, or adopt him as my really awesome grandpa/uncle/awesome old neighbor guy. This man's courage knows no bounds and I admire that about him too.

Так уж получилось, что мне однажды пришлось посидеть несколько месяцев "на турма".

Все это время я провел в одной и той же хате, т.к. и суд, и следак - все были рядом с изолятором. Ни капли не блатуя, я стоял на дороге, вел всю тачковку, сообщался с кремлем и мусорами и - (опять же) так получилось - в итоге смотрел за хатой. ;-)

Самый смешной для меня "НИКНЕЙМ" (погоняло) было, по-моему, выдано мне. В связи с тем, что я (будучи и юристом, и копирайтером одновременно) написал за все время несколько десятков "касаток" (кассационных жалоб), мне "тюрьма-старушка" выдала "погремушку" "АДВОКАТ".

I like Picard as a warrior poet. I like Sisko because he's a badass with a heart of gold. I like Dax because she comes with 300 years of life experience built in.

And then minor characters -- Barclay, who despite his many neurotices, is a good fellow and just tries his damndest. Martok, who sort of reminds me of a grandfather who's always proud of you but pretends he doesn't like you.

But yes... Picard. I'm all about Picard. Captain of his ship. Well-read. A diplomat, but also a capable warrior when he needs to be. Doesn't need to be the expert himself, but surrounds himself with smart and excellent people of all backgrounds and abilities.

Мне они в большей степени не нравились. Не говорю, что мои, а вообще ничьи. Человек имеет имя, его дают, как правило, родители, почему бы остальным не называть именно его? Можно ещё сокращенно говорить, это нормально. Николая называть Колей или Коляном, Веронику - Никой, Анжеликой - Ликой. Так смотрится и звучит не плохо, а вот кличка мне не нравится. Возможно в определенных кругах она даже что-то означает, но не думаю, что в нашей обычной жизни ей есть место.

Writer's Block: The name game

Have you and/or your friends ever picked nicknames for people without their knowledge? What was the funniest, and why did you choose it?

yeah I am actually pretty bad about this.  Got in the habit because my mom did it too.  I think the best was one of my high school friends we called "the doorknob" this was because everyone got their turn.  My mom called one of my girlfriends "cucumber" because she thought she was about as smart as a vegetable.

KEMETIC EGYPT VERSUS CHRISTIANITY LIE Part 2


Kemetic / Egyptian Origin of Christianity
Gerald Massey's comparative list of Kemetic / Egyptian (pre-Christian) religious-philosophical data, Christianized in the Canonical Gospels and the Book of Revelation.
One questions that always arise is: "If Kemet / Egypt was so great what happened?" The question is brief yet the answer takes days, weeks and even years to answer. What happened to Kemet / Egypt was not an overnight event but was a process of destruction resulting from the Aryan (European and Arab) onslaught lasting more than three thousand (3,000 years) - from 1,500 BCE till 1,500 AD. The onslaught continues to this day with a militarily defeated population having to endure invading predators digging over and for remains (read treasures) of the Kemet / Egyptian ancestors. In addition, having to endure identity theft of epic proportions against absurd claims that Kemet civilization was of Aryan (European, Arab [Semitic]) origins. We now have the destroyers claiming to have created the very civilization they have, and continue, to destroy. What a horror story!

 Each succeeding group of invaders, beginning with the Martu (erroneously called Assyrians), appropriated not only the material spoils of Kemet society, but in addition, the intellectual and technological spoils as well. We are talking about barbarian invaders setting themselves up as rulers and forging their domains on the spoils of the invaded. The fabrication of Christianity is one such example of a domain created by barbarian invaders on the spoils and demise of those from whom the foundation of Christianity was taken.

A brief explanation is in order. African civilizations ranging from Kemet / Egypt in North Africa to Chou Civilization in Southern Asia (the area now called China) were invaded by Aryan predators (now called Europeans, Arabs, and Asians) beginning approximately 1,500 BCE (Before Common Era). With each civilization / society that was conquered the invaders used the spoils to fabricate societies of their own; the invaders of China created Jainism and Confucims; those in India created Brahmanism; those in Asia Minor created Zoroastrianism, and Judaism; and those invading Kemet created "Greek Philosophy", Christianity and Islam.

As a part of the process of domination each invading group claimed authorship of the knowledge base and technology they appropriated from their victims. Each one claimed what they fabricated to have no relationship whatsoever with the civilization / society of the invaded population. Christianity is espoused in this fashion.

That Christianity is but stolen Kemetic / Egyptian religious philosophy and spirituality, including its rituals and beliefs, reframed in an Aryan image is the subject of the following presentation.

The author and scholar Gerald Massey, once a Christian Priest, who began investigating the questions that Christianity's origins posed for him found the trail leading to the civilization of Kemet / Egypt. As a consequence Massey became a student and investigator of Ancient Kemet / Egypt, subsequently revealed his findings in four major publications - Books of the Beginnings, (2 vols.), The Natural Genesis (2 vols.), Ancient Egypt the Light of the World (2 vols.) and The Lectures (1 vol.).

Massey over the course of twenty or so years presented facts proving Christianity was fabricated upon what was stolen from Kemet / Egypt; and that Christianity was in no respect original or from any god. The following excerpt from the appendix of Ancient Egypt the Light of the World is of the comparative list Massey compiled demonstrating that Christianity is a plagiarized fabrication from its Kemetic / Egyptian origins. The list is eight pages in length; however we are presenting only three of the eight pages. Hopefully you will acquire the publications of Gerald Massey and learn the truth about Kemet / Egypt and its impact on the fabrication of Christianity for yourself. Following the list is a short bibliography from which you can get more information.

Kemetic Religious Philosophy and Spirituality - The Way Of Life

The term "Kemetic Religious Philosophy and Spirituality" is somewhat of a misnomer and is better described as the "Way of Life"; as such, the Kemetic 'Way of Life' was/is a systematic approach to engendering 'optimal life' - providing food, resources and comfort - for everyone and everything. The 'Way of Life' had/has as its primary objective creating and sharing abundance and prosperity, and perpetuating creation, civilization and community by maintaining and adhering to 'cosmic order' and 'moral order'.

Cosmic Order - includes all of creation - was established by Atum (Ptah, Amen) the creator, and maintained by the 'Elements' Ntcheru - Ra, Nu, Shu, Nut, Geb, Maat, Neb-Het, Ausar, and Auset. Our essential responsibility to the Creator and the Elements Ntcheru is to respect the Cosmic Order and its 'Way of Life', and make no offense against it - therefore, we should not polute air or water, destroy by fire or buring, extinguish any life form engendered by the Creator, nor seek to engender a life-form other than by the Creator.
'Moral Order' includes the Earth Domain - was established by Ntcher Ausar - the 'Earth Sovereign'. His creed is that we collectively generate and share abundance, speak and do truth, and elevate the lives of each other.

In short, the Way of Life, has as its primary objective the Perpetuation of Life - by way of relationships that elevate life.

The Ntcheru - The Life Forces of Creation
The Creator, Elements Ntcheru, Principals Ntcheru, Ntcher-Incarnate (deified leader), Deified Ancestors, and Ancestors govern the Way of Life. The Creator Atum (or Ptah) created itself, therefore initiating the process of creation.
The Elements Ntcheruu, the life-forces that sustain creation followed - Shu (air), Neb-Het (atmosphere), Nu (water), Nut (Sky), Geb (earth), Ra (sun), Ausar (flora and fauna [food]), Auset (flora and fauna [food]), Het-Heru (minerals), and Set (metals). The Creator and the Elements Ntcheru, also known collectively as the 'Higher Ennead', govern the Cosmic Order. The Cosmic Order is what we observe as the universe - its cycles, expansions (unfolding), generated forms, etc.

The Principal Ntcheru, the life-forces that govern 'Moral Order' (including human behavior), followed the Elements Ntcheru - they include Ausar (the embodiment of government and the 'Living Word' - i.e. Moral Law), Auset (the 'seat' [embodiment] of government, unity, obligation, bonding), Heru (the force of truth - persuasion and coercion), Maat (Cosmic and Moral order and balance), Tehuti (communication and knowledge), Het-Heru (embodiment and protector of the society/state). The Principal Ntcheru, known collectively as the 'Lower Ennead' govern the 'Earth Domain' lead by Ntcher Ausar who is the 'Earth Sovereign'. Ntcher Ausar and the Lower Ennead set the laws and standards - 'Moral Order' that we are to adhere to; by doing so we are shown the way to abundance and prosperity in this lifetime, and immortality in the next lifetime. It we do not adhere to the 'Moral Order' we are doomed to impoverishment and ultimate death.

Next is the Nsut Bit (the Leader, Deity Incarnate), the 'earthly' embodiment of Cosmic Leadership as the 'Son-of-the-Sun', and as Moral Leadership the embodiment of Ntcher Ausar. In his/her capacity the Nsut Bit (Leader) is a Ntcher who has the responsibility to guide the society in generating abundance and prosperity, and guides the society in maintaining Cosmic and Moral Order. The Nsut Bit is party to the 'Lower Ennead'.

Next are the Deified Ancestors - these are individuals whose contribution to society, in the areas of abundance and prosperity and moral and cosmic responsibility, has been so profound that they have been elevated to the status of a Ntcher (Neter, Nature). Deified Ancestors, have authority and capabilities in there respective areas for which they have contributed and can be propitiated for their beneficence.

The Ancestors, 'those worthy of living forever', perpetuate the 'breath of life' that emanates from Atum (the Creator); it is through them that we inherit civilization and community (including family). Ancestors are honored for their contribution to the perpetuation of creation; they have the capacity to impact the affairs of human beings in the way of good. Following are 'Those Present' - that is you and I (addressed below). Following us are the 'Future Born'. To the 'Future Born' we have the obligation to provide a world of abundance, prosperity, and cosmic and moral order. To the 'Future Born' we may inform them of what is needed to improve the human condition that they may come with the capacity to affect what is needed.

The Cosmic and Moral Leadership in summary: Creator (Atum, Ptah, Amen) > Elements Ntcheru: Ra (sun), Nu (water), Shu (air), Nut (sky), Neb-Het (atmosphere), Geb (earth) > Principal Ntcheru: Ausar (government, law), Auset (government, unity, organization), Heru (force of truth), Maat (Cosmic and Moral Order), Tehuti (communication and knowledge) > Nsut Bit (Deified Leader) > Deified Ancestors > Ancestors > Those Present > Those Future.

Your and My Responsibility to Creation, Civilization and Community (Society)
Creation
Upon initiating creation Ntcher Atum created Ntcheru Shu (eternity) and Neb-Het (everlastingness), in so doing the creator intended for 'Life' and 'Cosmic Order' to continue forever. It is in this light that we have an obligation to not offend either. We have the responsibility to engender life-creating and life-sustaining relationships with all living things; in short our responsibility it to 'Optimal Living'. In such a world 'Life' is the yardstick by which all relationships are measured: The question is asked: Is this relationship life-creating and life-sustaining? If the relationship it is we embrace it, if it is not we reject it. Furthermore, it is for us to understand that all life emanates from Atum and is therefore related - either as a progenitor, sibling, or descendent; nevertheless, we are responsible to care for our relatives to the highest degree - be it an Ant or a Deer, a Whale or a Human Being.

We are responsible to adhere to the Cosmic Order, which engenders life. Therefore the extermination of life is an abomination against creation. Additionally, the threat of extermination of life by way of genocide, pogroms, bombs, nuclear weapons, poisons, or other means is an offense against Life and Cosmic Order and is therefore, an offense against Atum and Creation. As adherents to Cosmic and Moral Order we are compelled take neutralizing action those who engender and perpetuate such an offense (see below).


Civilization
Ntcher Ausar is the Earth Sovereign to whom we are obligated; he governs the Earth Domain and has set it laws. Ntcher Ausar introduced agriculture (i.e. food in abundance) and the elements of civilization - including science, arts, writing, building, commerce, etc. In doing so we were given the instruction to share abundance and prosperity. Prior to agriculture the majority of people were Hunter-Gathers with close to an impoverished lifestyle, except for those in pastoral and fishing communities. With Ntcher Ausar becoming the Earth Sovereign and introducing agriculture and a new faith, he introduced the foundation by which the world was able advance to prosperity. With the admonition to share abundance and prosperity, the Ausarian Faith was diffused worldwide via the introduction of agriculture (abundant food), and the elements of civilization; hence, all of the major ancient societies, including Sumer, Hatti, Indus, Shang, Olmec, Ugarit, Canaan, among others were engendered from the embrace of the Ausarian Faith. The Faith was introduced to each population via the gift of food, unity, and knowledge. The Ausarian Faith was diffused through peaceful means and with the only obligation being that of adhering to the Cosmic and Moral Order and that of 'sharing abundance and prosperity'.
Community / Society
Society is governed by the Nsut Bit, Seba, and Ancestors. The Nsut Bit as the Leader is the embodiment of Cosmic Order and Moral Order; his/her responsibility is to maintain both and to engender and maintain abundance and prosperity of the society. His/her word is 'sacred' - hence, Mdw Ntr (see below). The Nsut Bit, the standard (symbol), instructs and guides the society in the 'Way Of Creation'. The Seba, on behalf of the Ntcheru and Nsut Bit, administer to the 'knowledge, rituals and beliefs' that establish and maintain Right and Truth - Cosmic and Moral Order within the Earth Domain. The Ancestors continue to benefit humanity by way of propitiation (prayers), supplication (offerings) and celebration (remembrance). Our responsibility is to follow the instructions and guidance of the Nsut Bit (the Leader), Seba, and the example of the Ancestors.

Home Page / The Faiths

The African / Kemetic Faiths
The Kemetic Faith
The Kemetic Faith is a 'body of knowledge, rituals and beliefs' put in action to achieve 'Optimal Life' for everyone and everything. The Faith is composed of several 'expressions of emphasis' (divisions and branches) - including the Ausarian Faith, Tenetian Faith, Ra (Solar) Faith, Sacred Mother Faith, Ancestor Faith, Bes Faith, Min Faith (Sacred Fish), etc.

The Kemetic Faith derives from much older African faiths - Sacred Mother, Sacred Cow, Bes Faith, Solar Faith, Sacred Fish Faith, etc. The Kemetic Faith in essence introduced the 'Third World Order' (the Third Word ) in the embodiment and deeds of Ntcher Ausar, who introduced agriculture and the elements of civilization to humanity. Referred to here as Kemet Way or the Ausarian Faith, it is this faith that revolutionized humanities existence with the provision of food, resources and comfort in abundance via the agricultural-based faith.


The Ausarian Faith
The Ausarian Faith is an agricultural-based faith introduced by Ausar, which initiated the transition from hunter-gatherer, pastoral, nomadic, and fishing societies and economies to a more prosperous one founded on agriculture. The Ausarian Faith facilitated disparate communities uniting into villages and city/states, administered by a central government, from centrally established institutions (temples). The Ausarian Faith introduced writing (Mdw Ntr), the annual (365-day) calendar, the city/state/nation, etc The Ausarian Faith, with the sanction of the Ennead - both Higher Ennead and Lower Ennead - ushered in a new 'world order' on Earth - i.e. a transition from dependency on the Elements Ntcheru, to that of human empowerment to produce for self and 'human responsibility'. In the Ausarian Faith, Ausar and the agricultural-base economy take precedence, however, the faith includes the Sacred Mother Faith - represented by Ntcher Auset, and Ntcher Het-Heru; the Sacred Cow Faith, in which animal husbandry is the primary force of the economy - represented by Ntcher Het-Heru and to a lesser extent Ntcheru Ausar (Royal Bull) and Ntcher Auset (Royal Cow); the (Solar) Faith - represented by Ntcher Ra, and Ntcher Anu; the Sacred Fish Faith - represented by Ntcher Min and Ntcher Ausar (Sacred Fish). The Ausarian Faith includes the Ancestor Faiths among others. Each faith has it associated 'body of knowledge, rituals and beliefs'. The Faiths are not contradictory nor in conflict with each other.


Tenetian Faith
The Tenetian Faith is an animal husbandry based faith; it is derived from the Faith Of The Sacred Cow. The Faith of the Sacred Cow is one of the oldest African Faiths; it marks the transition of humanity from solely hunter-gatherers to include that of herding (pastoral) societies. The Sacred Cow Faith existed from Africa to China as a united faith. It was diffused throughout the ancient world by the Anu of inner-Africa. Under the Sacred Cow Faith communities of the ancient world co-existed within their respective territories. The communities engaged in enlarging the herds (the source of food and wealth), trading goods and services, collective defense against invaders and poachers. The Tenetian Faith held animal husbandry to be the primary force in the economy. In the Tenetian Faith the Ntcher Tena (Sacred Cow) - the female principle - is the preeminent Ntcher of the faith. In the Tenetian Faith, Ntcher Tena and the animal husbandry-based economy take precedence, however, the faith includes the Ausarian Faith - agriculture as the secondary force of the economy - represented by Ntcher Ntcheru Ausar (Royal Bull) and Ntcher Auset (Royal Cow); the (Solar) Faith - represented by Ntcher Ra, and Ntcher Anu; the Sacred Fish Faith - represented by Ntcher Min and Ntcher Ausar (Sacred Fish). The Tenetian Faith includes the Ancestor Faiths among others. Each faith has it associated 'body of knowledge, rituals and beliefs'. The Faiths are not contradictory nor in conflict with each other. The Sacred Cow Faith was diffused throughout Eurasia and lead by the Tuata-Tenen of Kemet (also known as the Libyans) - hence the Faith is being called the Tenetian Faith. The Tuata-Tenen established the Faith throughout the Mediterranean - including Minoan Crete, and Mycenae - from Western Europe to Russia, to throughout Asia Minor and Asia.

Solar Faith
The Solar Faith, in celebration and deference to creative and nurturing power of the sun, is a very ancient faith that originates from the times when our ancestors were solely hunter-gatherers. During this time our Ancestors viewed the Sun (Ra, Anu) as the creator, who was celebrated for bringing the light that liberated them from vulnerability during the darkness, brought warmth, engendered growth in plants, and good feelings among the people. Ra (in Kemet) and Anu, most everywhere else, are also celebrated as the preeminent Ntcher governing the cosmos-from above Earth to below the abode of Atum / Amen - i.e. Amenta. The Solar Faith is the faith of the 'Spiritual Resurrection'.


Ancestor Faith
The Ancestor Faith is not only universal in the Kemetic Faith but in all African Faiths; it celebrates the spiritual immortality of those who have come and gone; who have contributed to our quality of life; yet, more specifically to our genealogy. Our Ancestors perpetuated the first breath and utterance of Atum to us in both our very own breath and in our utterances that perpetuate creation. The Ancestor Faith is our connection to before.


Sacred Mother Faith
The Faith of the Sacred Mother dates to before twenty-five thousands B.C. The iconography of the Ntcher depicts her a voluptuous female of large breast, buttocks, and stomach, with curled or knotted hair. This faith celebrates life and creation - including the mysterious birth of human beings, and the female generative principle in creating and sustaining life. An outstanding element is the geographic breath of this faith - stretching from south and west Africa, east to China and the Pacific Islands, north of Africa in to Europe (west to France and east to Russia). In other words, African people, in spite of migrating thousands of miles apart remained unified by this faith. Additionally, the Faith of the Sacred Mother was retained in Ancient Kemet by way of the Ntcher Het-Heru (the Sacred Cow), who was also portrayed with the rotund body of the Sacred Mother and the head of a Cow.


Faith of the Sacred Cow/Bull
The 'Faith of the Sacred Cow / Bull' derives from the days of our hunter-gathering Ancestors who learned to herd animals and their eventual domestication of them. Goats, Lamb, and cows provided enough food to feed groups; with the advent of herding our Ancestors were able to ensure a ready and plentiful food supply. It is in this light that the spirit of the Sacred Cow / Bull came to be revered. In this faith status of, and within, the society was measured by the health and size of the herd.
The 'Faith of the Sacred Cow / Bull' was diffused throughout the ancient world; its impact included a greater supply of food, sedentary, and semi-sedentary lifestyle, increased population growth, the beginning of stone building, and sedentary related crafts - like pottery making.
During the Kemetic Era, the Faith of the Sacred Cow was continued in the celebration of Het-Heru and Ausar (Ausarian Faith), and Tenen and Tenen-T (Tenetian Faith). Adherents of the Tenetian Faith are principally responsible for the diffusion, organization and leadership of the faith (during the Dynastic Era) outside of Kemet - it is they who introduced the faith throughout the Mediterranean (including Minoan and Mycenae), Europe (including Ireland and the British Isles), and throughout Asia (including Indus and Shang societies).


The Faith of Set - Faith of the Hunters
The 'Faith of Set' is mentioned here because his faith is important, though it is greatly misunderstood. Ntcher Set, founder of metallurgy and metal-working, is a predynastic Ntcher associated with metal weapons and hunting; therefore in the hunting (and gathering) society he was preeminent. In the hunter-gathering society, the hunter held status by way of his weapon - its efficacy in hunting, fighting and defence; in this society a great warrior-hunter was revered, and granted superior status. The adoption of the Pastoral or Agricultural society challenged the place and status of the hunter-warrior. It is this, Predynastic, challenge for world sovereignty, that characterized the battle between Ausar/Heru (Ausarian Faith - agriculture) and Set (hunter-gatherer).
