"Nubia couldn't have resuscitated Egypt if they weren't already the source for Egypt" - Grandpa

Take special notice: of the double cobra on the crown of the Pharaoh Taharqa
one for each region of Egypt, one for the North, one for the South

Excerpt from the magazine above: "The ancient world was devoid of racism. A person's skin if dark was irrelevant. Artwork from ancient Egypt, Greece, and Rome show a clear awareness of racial features and skin tone, but there is little evidence that darker skin was seen as a sign of inferiority. When European colonization took over Africa in the 19th century, it was then that Western scholars payed attention to the color of the Nubian's skin, to uncharitable effect"

A personal story: I remember when I was in high school, we'd have a brief cursory glance at Egypt and then we were whisked away to Greece and Rome really quickly; and the chapters on those civilizations were always way more extensive and comprehensive. We we're taught blatantly that Greece and Rome are the blueprint for western civilization, but no one discusses from where the ingredients came that helped flavor there civilizations. We we're shown Roman art, and naturally it was newer (meaning not as ancient) and the pieces were intact and Roman euro centric noses were never hacked off like the much older Egyptian Afro-centric noses. It was drummed into us that the art and the architecture got "better with time and became more technically advanced" with more richer and opulent qualities. Perhaps the Egyptians knew that "less meant more" and they had an architectural tendency which focused more on structural alignments with the stars, re-creating with stunning accuracy the alignment of celestial bodies above by building structures that mirrored them below. I remember feeling pretty shitty as a kid, because Egypt always seemed to excite me, it had intrigue, mystery and allure, but it was never properly explained, examined or fairly judged. It wasn't until years later that I was given an account by my grandfather that helped open my eyes.

Jebel Barkal in Sudan:
Meriotic Nubian Kingdom (this mountain has chambers and corridors)

The History I was taught by my Nubian Grandfather
R.I.P - Attilah Hussain Abou-Bakr Bezerghean

Egypt is the oldest withstanding civilization, arguably none of the other civilizations lasted for as long as she did, and every power of this kind has a source, that helps revive it during times of regression. One such regression happened in ancient Egypt and it was halted by a resurgence of culture and by a revisiting of the old ways instituted by "The Nubians" from the south of Egypt. The northern part of Egypt was always more multi-cultural (it still is till this day). Northern Egypt's proximity to other cultures from the Mediterranean and the middle east made the northern part of Egypt more integrated, and the inter-marrying of cultures both strengthened and weakened Egypt sometimes. The North was susceptible to invaders and foreign influences made Egypt stray away from it's own original roots. Whenever this would happen, Egypt would stretch out it's hands for Nubia, and Nubia would trade Gold and other valuable resources with it's Northern brother.

Egypt enjoyed a few thousand years of relative obscurity before she became famous to her neighbors, the desert lands to the south and the seas to the east and north of her helped shield her from many invaders. The Nile River was the wealth of Egypt, it filled her granaries to immeasurable limits, and when the people we're no longer worried about food, a rich and sensible culture emerged. They cared about healing, spirituality and enlightenment. They chartered the stars and traced there trajectory. Pyramid construction was intrinsic to there way of life, in fact there are more pyramids in the southern part of Egypt than in the north. My grandfather told me that the Nubians were always the last line of defense for Egypt, when Egypt lost it's way in the 25th dynasty, it was the Nubians who resurrected pyramid construction when it hadn't been attempted in the north in over 800 years.

You mean to tell me that you could stop doing something for 800 years, the Nubians strengthen and unify the entire country, rid it of invaders, start the building of pyramids that the notherners forgot how to do; and they aren't the original custodians and maintainers of Egyptian culture? The northern and southern part of Egypt was like a relationship between the parent and the child, sometimes the parent leaves the child alone, and sometimes the child comes back and says daddy, mommy, can you show me how you used to do that again! (God rest his soul...for the many lessons he gave me, don't worry grandpa I'm not blind anymore).
