Race of Arms: Akhenaten’s Reforms

I think… historians and other academics still underestimate the value of Akhenaten’s worshiping as One God. The recognition of after-life in Ancient Egypt and what else had left in sands and abandoned provinces should never be viewed as something simply portrayed in ‘religion’, ‘church’, ‘faith’, ‘monotheism’.

‘Egyptian Pharaoh Akhenaten and Nefertiti’ has the following description:

This image could have imperfections as it’s either historical or reportage. Caption: “Sunk-relief depicting Egyptian pharaoh Akhenaton, his wife Nefertiti, and three of their daughters, with the sun god Aten or Aton.” Akhenaten, known before the fifth year of his reign as Amenhotep IV, was a pharaoh of the Eighteenth dynasty of Egypt who ruled for 17 years and died in 1336 BC or 1334 BC Neferneferuaten Nefertiti (1370 BC – 1330 BC) was the Great Royal Wife (chief consort) of the Egyptian Pharaoh Akhenaten. Nefertiti and her husband were known for a religious revolution, in which they worshiped one god only, Aten, or the sun disc. With her husband, they reigned at what was arguably the wealthiest period of Ancient Egyptian history. Sunk relief was mainly restricted to Ancient Egypt.

Alright, a potent reminder of ‘after-life’ first key is the African continent. Africa, Mark! 

In my earlier posts, the ‘Wodaabe‘ tribe categorized as an ethnic group with ‘weird’ sexual relations with little evidence of real bloody roots to that prostitution. 

When he addresses Hosea this is the only thing that matters –his people have definitively prostituted themselves. Everything that surrounds him, the entire context, epoch, is prostitution. What analytic discourse uncovers when we explore the discourse of the Master is that there is no sexual relationship. I already told you this in the strongest terms. Well then, the idea we get is that the chosen people found themselves implicated in something where things were very probably different, where there were sexual relationships. This is probably what Yahweh calls prostitution.

Voodoo people

Repeatedly, I am following the Lacanian raw and uncut technique based in 17th Seminar. Just reading names, firstly.

This is not a magical coincidence. The roots of ‘voodoo’ have the fundaments in ‘Wodaabe’, ‘people of taboo’. Hope, it is apparent, voodoo magic is all about love. Sigmund Freud had a similar path towards libido, totem, taboo, drive.

Voodoo practice is eerie and unsettling. And then I am about to mark life beyond Language, another side of Voodoo, the specific relation Father-Son, the vision.
