Science Ancient Kemet (Egypt) was based on the observation that the constants in the life of large objects (like the constellations), were mirrored in all parts of life, even the small things (like a human body). The large and small were seen as symbols of each other. Poetry was the language of science because poetry is purposefully symbolic. The wisdom that was shared, crystalized into a metaphorical eye through which we, as pupils, could see through the lens of the learned. Different facets of the diamond were like different parts of life, and different aspects of science.
Life does the same thing whether you’re looking at life through the eyes of a farmer or the eyes of an astrologer or doctor or musician. Life does the same thing whether you’re looking at it through an agricultural facet, or an astronomical facet, or a medical or musical facet. Life doesn’t change it’s behavior or laws because the aspect is different. Our understanding of the science of Kemet takes a quantum leap in this work of R. A. Schwaller de Lubicz, his wife, Isha, and her daughter, Lucy.
While visiting the Temple at Luxor (a major must-see on the tourist circuit in Egypt), Swaller realized that the hieroglyphs on the walls of the temple were mathematical equations and that the floor plan of temple is designed as a human body. There are rooms that correspond to the major parts of the human brain, the body, and a non-material part for the spirit. For sixteen years he and his family stayed in Egypt studying the temple, taking impeccable notes, and the writing first appeared in French. Debra and Robert Lawlor then spent twenty years translating the work into English. This 1100 page work gives, for the first time, a complete revelation of the Temple Wisdom, Cosmology and Mysticism of Ancient Egypt. With over 400 diagrams and plates, this masterpiece was intended by Schwaller to prove, once and for all, to the scientific and educated world, the advanced level of scientific and metaphysical wisdom possessed by this great ancient African civilization. In the process he proves that Egypt, not Greece, is the cradle of Western culture and civilization, and demonstrates that a radical reevaluation of our origins is immanent.
There is no question that The Temple of Man is one of the greatest cosmologicals work ever written, as well as one of the greatest spiritual texts. Schwaller was not a merely an intellectual, but a Master Alchemist who successfully applied the principles of transmutation to both matter and consciousness, giving his work the added significance of being capable of bridging that gargantuan gap between Cosmological Theory and Spiritual Application. This is the first time the Initiated Mysteries and Sacred Hermetic Science of the Egyptian Priesthood have been laid out and explained, and in exhaustive detail. The contents of this book could not be found in 1,000 of the best works ever published on any of the related subjects. The information revealed in this work has the power to create a much needed renaissance in science, art and spirituality, while redefining our interpretation of the universe, history, culture, and ourselves.
Kemet fell two thousand years ago (the beginning of the Pisces Age). The facets of our collective vision went to pieces and the vitality (the life part) was taken out of science. Chemistry doesn’t know its’ relationship to astronomy, music doesn’t know its’ relationship to agriculture, etc., and Black people (who process information metaphorically) were up the quantum creek without a calculator. Dec. 19, 1999, the missing link appears in the first week of the Aquarian Age: The Temple of Man.
“In my view, The Temple of Man is the most important work of scholarship of this century. R. A. Schwaller de Lubicz finally proves the existence of the legendary ‘sacred science’ of the Ancients and systematically demonstrates its modus operandi. It was this great science–based upon an intimate and exact knowledge of cosmic principles–that fused art, religion, science, and philosophy into one coherent whole and sustained Ancient Egypt for three thousand years.” –John Anthony West, author of Serpent in the Sky
“The Temple of Man will live, like statues of Ramesses, long after we and those who follow us have joined the pharaohs. This is an eternal work, just as Egypt is eternal. To enter the minds of the Ancient Egyptians through this door will lead any reader into an enchanted realm where form and structure have life, where stone breathes and perspires, and where the palpitating heart of traditional wisdom still throbs amongst the sands.” –Robert Temple, translator of The Complete Fables of Aesop and
author of The Sirius Mystery
