Kemetic Paradigm Series Part 2: What Is The Link Between Greece and Kemet?
Where do the origins of the words “Greek” and “Africa” come from?
Kemet, at its height, was known all over the world for its advanced society. A specific group of people that are contemporarily known as the “Greeks,” were fascinated by the mystery schools of Kemet, to which they came to study philosophy, science, and spirituality. It is well documented that the Greco-Roman culture that dominates the world today was heavily influenced by what they learned during that time.
Due to a lack of exposure to advanced civilization, the Greeks first arrived in Meritah (traditional Africa) lacking basic hygiene and behaving in a way that some would call barbaric. In initiation, it is common for nicknames to be given to seekers to highlight a weakness or deficit that needs to be overcome. So when the Greeks came for initiation, their initiators referred to them as Gerka, which means “dark spirit or a spirit in the dark.” Ger carries the meaning of “lost or dark” in Medu (hieroglyphics), and Ka carries the meaning of “soul” or “spirit.”
Struggling to assimilate the knowledge and live up to the discipline of Kemetic practices, the Greeks, in an attempt to rewrite history and downgrade Kemetic culture, began referring to Kem(s) as “Afri-kah,” which translates to “burning soul or burnt spirit” in Medu. To avoid speaking energy into this derogatory concept of “Afrikah” as the land of burning souls, you will often see The Earth Center refer to the continent as “Meri-tah,” which in Medu means “beloved land.”
