The Ancient African Relationship between Knowledge, Wisdom and Love; Ignorance, Error and Hate

In the Service of our Ancestors and African Love,
Listen Seeker, I come in peace,

“Self-Determinant People Seek and Develop their own Peace, Possessions and Consciousness.” — African Blood Siblings Core Tenet

Any oppressed African will notice Africans whom deem themselves Knowledgeable, Wise or Loving despite African Ignorance, Error or Hate. The contradiction stems from our loss of “the Ancient Relationship between Knowledge, Wisdom and Love; Ignorance, Error and Hate.” The six concepts relate to reality, which the Ancients defined. As highlighted nearly a year ago Reality differs between spirits–a Crocodile and a Wildebeest have different Realities as do Europeans, Asians and Africans. Inasmuch as Reality differs spiritually hence Racially, the six concepts differ Racially too. How so is rediscovered here using only Proverbs from the Temple of Wa’set and what our African Ancestors give me. The African Blood Siblings aims toward African Self-Determination. Join the Effort.

The Ancient Relationship between Knowledge, Wisdom and Love; Ignorance, Error and Hate
Rediscovered by Onitaset Kumat

Within and without the Temple of Wa’set, the center of the Ancient Nile Valley’s Educational system, are a series of Proverbs. One proverb answers “What is Knowledge?” yet another two proverbs asks “What is Wisdom?” and “What is Love?” The three proverbs are as follows:

Knowledge is consciousness of reality. Reality is the sum of the laws that govern nature and of the causes from which they flow.

Knowledge is not necessarily wisdom.

Love is one thing, knowledge is another.

From the three Proverbs, we can ask three other questions: “What is Ignorance?,” “What is Error?,” and “What is Hate?” Naturally, the first is answered, Ignorance is Unconsciousness of Reality, hence Error and Hate have the same relation to Ignorance that Wisdom and Love have to Knowledge.

With seven questions–What is: Reality, Knowledge, Wisdom, Love, Ignorance, Error, Hate?–and three answers (Reality, Knowledge, Ignorance) we need further Proverbs from Wa’set to determine The Ancient Relationship between Knowledge, Wisdom and Love; Ignorance, Error and Hate, particularly dealing with the four unanswered.

On Wisdom,

Knowledge is not necessarily wisdom.

Every man must act in the rhythm of his time … such is wisdom.

It is no use whatever preaching Wisdom to men: you must inject it into their blood.

Have the wisdom to abandon the values of a time that has passed and pick out the constituents of the future. An environment must be suited to the age and men to their environment.

To know means to record in one’s memory; but to understand means to blend with the thing and to assimilate it oneself.

True sages are those who give what they have, without meanness and without secret!

A man can’t be judge of his neighbor’s intelligence. His own vital experience is never his neighbor’s.

By knowing one reaches belief. By doing one gains conviction. When you know, dare.

On Error,

Leave him in error who loves his error.

There are two kinds of error: blind credulity and piecemeal criticism. Never believe a word without putting its truth to the test; discernment does not grow in laziness; and this faculty of discernment is indispensable to the Seeker. Sound skepticism is the necessary condition for good discernment; but piecemeal criticism is an error.

If the Master teaches what is error, the disciple’s submission is slavery; if he teaches truth, this submission is ennoblement.

On Love,

Love is one thing, knowledge is another.

Leave him in error who loves his error.

On Hate,

[Nothing]

What may first jump out is how neither Love nor Hate are substantially referenced. Hate, for instance, isn’t at all mentioned. Love, on the other hand, is mentioned twice; one reference relates it to Error–“Leave him in error who loves his error.” Examining this, we consider the unwritten Proverb, “Seek him in Wisdom who loves his Wisdom,” which interests especially for the language found in one of the Error proverbs, “There are two kinds of error: blind credulity and piecemeal criticism. Never believe a word without putting its truth to the test; discernment does not grow in laziness; and this faculty of discernment is indispensable to the Seeker. Sound skepticism is the necessary condition for good discernment; but piecemeal criticism is an error.” Namely, that “the Seeker” and “Development” (through “grow in laziness”) are concepts worth exploring.

On Seeker,

There are two kinds of error: blind credulity and piecemeal criticism. Never believe a word without putting its truth to the test; discernment does not grow in laziness; and this faculty of discernment is indispensable to the Seeker. Sound skepticism is the necessary condition for good discernment; but piecemeal criticism is an error.

The first concerning the ‘secrets’: all cognition comes from inside; we are therefore initiated only by ourselves, but the Master gives the keys.
The second concerning the ‘way’: the seeker has need of a Master to guide him and lift him up when he falls, to lead him back to the right way when he strays.
Understanding develops by degrees.

Two tendencies govern human choice and effort, the search after quantity and the search after quality. They classify mankind. Some follow Maat, others seek the way of animal instinct.

Men need images. Lacking them they invent idols. Better then to found the images on realities that lead the true seeker to the source.

Seek peacefully, you will find.

If you search for the laws of harmony, you will find knowledge.

If you are searching for a Neter, observe Nature!

On Development,

Not the greatest Master can go even one step for his disciple; in himself he must experience each stage of developing consciousness. Therefore he will know nothing for which he is not ripe.

The first concerning the ‘secrets’: all cognition comes from inside; we are therefore initiated only by ourselves, but the Master gives the keys.
The second concerning the ‘way’: the seeker has need of a Master to guide him and lift him up when he falls, to lead him back to the right way when he strays.
Understanding develops by degrees.

The seed includes all the possibilities of the tree.
The seed will develop these possibilities, however, only if it receives corresponding energies from the sky.

Exuberance is a good stimulus towards action, but the inner light grows in silence and concentration.

There are two kinds of error: blind credulity and piecemeal criticism. Never believe a word without putting its truth to the test; discernment does not grow in laziness; and this faculty of discernment is indispensable to the Seeker. Sound skepticism is the necessary condition for good discernment; but piecemeal criticism is an error.

There grows no wheat where there is no grain.

We find these important in light of these three proverbs,

  1. Every man must act in the rhythm of his time … such is wisdom.
  2. There are two kinds of error: blind credulity and piecemeal criticism. Never believe a word without putting its truth to the test; discernment does not grow in laziness; and this faculty of discernment is indispensable to the Seeker. Sound skepticism is the necessary condition for good discernment; but piecemeal criticism is an error.
  3. Leave him in error who loves his error.

The first reads as Wisdom being acting in the rhythm of one’s time. The second reads how there are two kinds of error, believing without testing and piecemeal criticism. The last one reads how one can love an error.

To further understand these, we look at these other proverbs,

  • By knowing one reaches belief. By doing one gains conviction. When you know, dare.
  • Exuberance is a good stimulus towards action, but the inner light grows in silence and concentration.
  • Two tendencies govern human choice and effort, the search after quantity and the search after quality. They classify mankind. Some follow Maat, others seek the way of animal instinct.
  • The first concerning the ‘secrets’: all cognition comes from inside; we are therefore initiated only by ourselves, but the Master gives the keys.
    The second concerning the ‘way’: the seeker has need of a Master to guide him and lift him up when he falls, to lead him back to the right way when he strays.
    Understanding develops by degrees.
  • From the first, we notice the contrast between believing and testing, which relates to believing and conviction from earlier. The second informs us that action is a result of development. The third shows us what is searched differentiates following Maat from the way of animal instinct. The last ties in the Seeker with Development.

Therefore insomuch as Wisdom ties to action it ties to Development and Knowledge; thus Error ties in with Development and Ignorance. Also insomuch as Love ties with Leaving and Error and Error ties with Wisdom and Leaving ties with Seeking it’s evident that Love ties with Seeking and Wisdom; thus Hate ties with Seeking and Error. In this way The Ancient Relationship between Knowledge, Wisdom and Love; Ignorance, Error and Hate is Rediscovered.

Reality: the sum of the laws that govern nature and of the causes from which they flow.
Ignorance: Unconsciousness of Reality.
Error: The Development of Ignorance.
Hate: The Search for Error.
Knowledge: Consciousness of Reality.
Wisdom: The Development of Knowledge.
Love: The Search for Wisdom.

Two things are profound. The unmentioned Hate is only a Search for Error and Reality is the sum of laws that govern nature and the causes from which they flow (Asili–spirit.) When we consider how one’s personal nature is influenced by one’s biology and as Wolves and Tigers have a different biology and different Natures, Europeans and Africans have a different biology and different Natures, we see firsthand that different Races have different Concepts of Hate and Love. I.e. The European’s Love is “The Search for European Wisdom” and yet the African’s Hate is “The Search for European Wisdom,” given how European Wisdom is a Development of European Knowledge which is a Consciousness of European Reality which is a sum of laws that govern European Nature and the causes from which they flow (Occidentalism) which is a Search of a Development of an Unconsciousness of African Reality (Originalism) [as the two realities differ] which is Search of a Development of Ignorance which is a Search of Error which is Hate.

In essence, a “Self-Determinant People Seek and Develop their own Peace, Possessions and Consciousness.” African Knowledge, Wisdom and Love lead Africans to this Reality. The African Blood Siblings struggles thusly, according our Ancestral African Knowledge, Wisdom and Love.

    1. Peace,

      The ideas behind the writing are likely timeless. The physical writings (i.e. the carving in the stones) likely match the stone for which they are carved. Considering that these are proverbs from the temples of Waset, it should be “Middle” or “New Kingdom,” but I would not be surprised if they were carved during the “Old Kingdom” or even pre-dynasty. In other words, anywhere between 3,000 and 7,000 years ago.

      Thank you for the comment. I hope this helps!

      1. Peace,

        I had them copied from: https://africanbloodsiblings.wordpress.com/2012/02/04/kmt-self-knowledge-and-cosmic-wisdom-quotations/

        Which I admitted was copied from: http://kemetichistoryofafrikabluelotus.blogspot.com/2011/05/kmt-self-knowledge-and-cosmic-wisdom.html

        Which admits to being gleaned from the works of: Isha Schwaller de Lubicz

        Who was a student of her Husband: R. A. Schwaller de Lubicz

        Perhaps they can be ‘sources.’ But remember that the chronology of ancient Kamit, and ancient Africa in general, is often skewed to fit the chronology of Christianity in particular and Europe in general, so most ‘sources,’ especially in the time of the authors (though today is not an exception), aren’t ‘well-sourced.’ In other words, the Christian “bible” references the start of Egypt and the start of the world and in connection to that ‘source’ many chronologies are wrong. If I remember correctly, Josephus’ chronology is also messed up, but its a ‘source’ for many ‘scholars.’

        I am comfortable acknowledging that the quotes predate the West. A good article on this can be read here:

        https://africanbloodsiblings.wordpress.com/2012/03/16/what-is-philosophy-by-asar-imhotep/

        Good luck on your project!

      2. By the way, Robin Walker and Ivan Van Sertima both have literature that may interest you. The former on chronology, history and mathematics; the latter on science and the ancient African diaspora.

  1. I’ve read the proverbs from the temple wall many times. Thanks for analyzing, synthesizing and finding a connection in the concepts. I’ve also looked for hidden connections and I like the ones you found.

    1. Thanks. I forgot about this article. I should have included it in my book. Nevertheless, it’s a good book. If you can purchase one, much obliged. It’s an activity book for getting our people active in the liberation of our people–and the war that must be fought.

      Thanks again.
