The first time you met Kemet

Post by Daniel09 on 10.11.09 19:30

I was wondering if you remember the first time you met Kemet? The first time Ancient Egypt entered your mind and you took an interest in it.

For me, to my knowledge, it was way back in around fourth grade in math class. It was brought up how the Ancient Egyptians measured their stuff, and then following that was the ramp theory of how they constructed the pyramids. It didn't seem right to me at all and sparked my interest in Egypt which kind of sat in the background for many years. In seventh grade there was an assignment to build a scale model of a pyramid. I chose the great pyramid and after a lot of study on the dimensions and such, I finally worked out exact measurements and built a cardboard pyramid, which I then covered in orange-dyed plaster-of-paris to give the appearance of an old pyramid. I still have a piece of it somewhere. After I moved back to the town where I was born, I visited the library far more often, it being close-by. Once I discovered their section on Egypt, I became very familiar with it, pulling every interesting book, skimming most and avidly reading others. Now I have the desire to become an archaeologist so I can go to Egypt and find out more. It is quite an obsession, a controlled one though, more like a passion. I have an undying passion and love for Egypt, the mysterious shrouded land of Kemet. ^_^

I think I was six or seven years old. My uncle had been to Egypt and brought back several items. Items that left the most impact were feeling real papyrus, very vivid color pics of various artifacts( chairs,chariots,ect), many King Tut pics, and the two statues that have stayed with me all these years, Aset and Anubis.

Very Asetian in nature, no? Wink Aset and Anubis, both highly central deities in the Asetian tradition.

Ah! I just had a recollection. The earliest memory of Egypt I had was from Sesame Street, which I never watched. That program just happened to be on at a random time I was watching. There was a kid trying to make it into the afterlife, but had to have a heart lighter than a feather, and the God wouldn't let him pass otherwise.

I've never been into Egypt too much, although I do like the jewelry and hieroglyphics; I remember being fascinated with hieroglyphs at museums. I mostly like Arabia/Arabic culture, which is odd since I do not tolerate hot weather very well.

I think it began for me when I read a single page devoted to Serqet in a high school history book. I remember thinking that I wished I could pray and really learn about deities like the ones in ancient times. But, I was young and didn't think that would be possible. But, later on, with a lot of life changes and family members passing on, my spiritual path changed completely, and Egypt drew me in fully.

To be completely honest i can't remember ever having a first experience with Kemet. It's quiet simply always been there for me.
