Astonishing Life of Octavia Nothing, Traitor to the Nation, Vol. II: The Kindom on the Waves

M. T. Anderson

Fearing a death sentence, Octavian and his tutor, Dr. Trefusis, escape through rising tides and pouring rain to find shelter in British-occupied Boston. Sundered from all he knows — the College of Lucidity, the rebel cause — Octavian hopes to find safe harbor. Instead, he is soon to learn of Lord Dunmore’s proclamation offering freedom to slaves who join the counterrevolutionary forces.
In Volume II of his unparalleled masterwork, M. T. Anderson recounts Octavian’s experiences as the Revolutionary War explodes around him, thrusting him into intense battles and tantalizing him with elusive visions of liberty. Ultimately, this astonishing narrative escalates to a startling, deeply satisfying climax, while reexamining our national origins in a singularly provocative light.

(Sequel to the National Book Award Winner)
“A novel of the first rank, the kind of monumental work Italo Calvino called ‘encyclopedic’ in the way it sweeps up history into a comprehensible and deeply textured pattern.”      — THE NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW

Astonishing Life of Octavia Nothing, Traitor to the Nation, Vol. 1: The Pox Party

M. T. Anderson

It sounds like a fairy tale. He is a boy dressed in silks and white wigs and given the finest of classical educations. Raised by a group of rational philosophers known only by numbers, the boy and his mother — a princess in exile from a faraway land — are the only persons in their household assigned names. As the boy’s regal mother, Cassiopeia, entertains the house scholars with her beauty and wit, young Octavian begins to question the purpose behind his guardians’ fanatical studies. Only after he dares to open a forbidden door does he learn the hideous nature of their experiments — and his own chilling role in them.

Set against the disquiet of Revolutionary Boston, M. T. Anderson’s extraordinary novel takes place at a time when American Patriots rioted and battled to win liberty while African slaves were entreated to risk their lives for a freedom they would never claim. The first of two parts, this deeply provocative novel reimagines the past as an eerie place that has startling resonance for readers today.

The Temple of Man (two volume, boxed set)

R. A. Schwaller de Lubicz and Isha de Lubicz

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

Stolen Legacy: The Greeks Were Not the Authors of Greek Philosophy, but Were the People of North Africa, Commonly Called the Egyptians

George G. M. James with Introduction by Asa Hilliard, III, Ph.D.

The Black people of Kemet (Egypt) taught the sciences to the Greeks. Civilization went from North Africa to Greece, not the other way around. In 1954, Philosophical Library published George G. M. James’ Stolen Legacy: The Greeks Were not the authors of Greek Philosophy, but were the People of North Africa, Commonly Called the Egyptians. It went out of print the same year. With all the thousands of volumes published on Greek civilization, here comes a book that proves the African origin of the sciences and philosophies that had, for centuries, been attributed to Greece. Also, the same year, Professor James left his job and friends where he was teaching at State College at Pine Bluff, Arkansas and was found dead in Nashville Tennessee.

In 1974, Julian Richardson (co-founder of Marcus Bookstores) and Dr. Asa Hilliard, III. Asa was a world-wide (respected master educator, psychologist, Egyptologist, historian. then Dean of Ethnic Studies at San Francisco State University) were marveling over a copy of Stolen Legacy that had been copied-over at least four times. Rich and Asa acquired the rights to republish Stolen Legacy from Philosophical Library and the estate of Professor James. Stolen Legacy soon became one of the top three Black history books in the U. S. (the others being The Destruction of Black Civilization by Chancelor Williams and The African Origin of Civilization by Cheikh Anta Diop).

The Julian Richardson publication is the only one that includes an Introduction by the late, great, Dr. Hilliard. His introduction brilliantly raises questions such as: Who taught the Greek scholars? Where did the Greek scholars go to school? How old was the material the “scholars” studied at the time that Socrates, Plato, Pythagorus and Aristotle got it? How was the information received in Greece when they returned from their schooling? Were the “scholars” welcomed with open arms, or were they persecuted for heresy?

In America, we not informed that mathematics, astronomy, architecture, medicine, music, anatomy, government, religion, agriculture and other basic sciences were fully developed in Africa five thousand years before even the word Greece.

Professor George G. M. James answers these questions thoroughly. James, Rich and Asa have left you a rich legacy. You have to be free enough to claim it though.
