Kemetic Science: The difference between practicing maa vs maat

If you have been taught that masculine and feminine equate to male and female then you miss the wisdom our ancestors were imparting to you. Knowledge is good, interpretation is ok, but when you gain wisdom your life changes in a big way. According to ancient tradition, the highest form of learning is wisdom which can only be gained through personal revelation.

That revelation only comes through life experiences. Not from the pages of any book.

This knowledge is so much more beautiful and powerful than simply gaining facts and trivia. You are a creator.


Maat implies questions that move beyond knowledge if you have a bunch of books, facts, dates, and trivia that you have been religiously accumulating to better yourself then you have you been unknowingly practicing Maa rather than Maat?

Hi, my name is Reginald Khu-akaru, founder of khemetic centered

Why should you pay attention to this screencast? [Below] Because you will get a deeper understanding of Maat that will help you learn the difference between gathering knowledge and integrating into your life the practice that our African ancestors called Maat.

In the Kemetic language adding a /t/ at the end of a word made it a feminine expression. Maa is the root word for maat. Maa is masculine and means to examine or physically perceive. You examine with your physical eyes.

Maat is feminine, one meaning is truth. If maa means to physically examine, to perceive outwardly, then what does maa/t/ imply if you have been taught a basic meaning is truth?

I’m not asking you to interpret this idea. You probably have the knowledge of the interpretation of truth, righteousness and justice. That is practicing Maa. But, maat as a concept goes much deeper!

The symbolic representation of the neters was designed to bring something out of you, not to feed a prescribed message to you.

If you have been taught erroneously that masculine and feminine equate to male and female or man and woman then you are essentially locked out of the beautiful and powerful wisdom that our ancestors left for us.

Maat being a feminine expression is a key for you.

Having the knowledge of Maa and what it means in relation to Maat should start you on a journey.

The neter that is Maat should start you to ask questions like

Why is maat feminine, not a woman?

What is the meaning of the wings?

What does the feather on her head symbolize?

This is still at the knowledge level

It’s time to go deeper

By giving you the word maa, the root of Maat you get an idea of what it means as a masculine expression. Our ancestors designed these words, symbols, and myths. They were not arbitrary.

In order for you to obtain the knowledge, you have to understand the built-in clues, in the symbolism, to aid you to invoke wisdom, not a simple interpretation.

Our ancestors noted levels of learning, opinion [lowest level, this is where religious belief and faith reside], sense [intuition], knowledge [rational facts, traditions, etc.], and wisdom as the highest level of learning.

There is a difference in knowledge and wisdom. Knowledge is the foundation of wisdom but you have to go within to gain wisdom from your knowledge through life experiences.

Wisdom is defined as the inner contemplation of knowledge. That is the practice of maat! [wisdom combines sense and knowledge levels]

Maa the masculine expression means to examine or perceive with the physical eyes. That is what you do when accumulating facts. But, how do I know this?  Because I know that masculine is a functional equivalent of the ancient Kemetic symbolic language. Not a man.

Our ancestors are saying to you that figuring out your subjective, inner knowledge is TRUTH! Your truth!

How do I know that Maat is a practice and means so much more than truth, justice, and righteousness?

Because I know the clue of it being a feminine functional equivalent.

Our ancient African ancestors were masters at using natural symbols. They designed them like that for a reason.

If you know the definition of maat but have no clue about how it is practiced then you have knowledge, you have facts, but not the wisdom to apply the knowledge.

I don’t mean that as a slight to you. Because I know, that just like me, you were probably raised in religion where you were taught to learn scripture and lean not on your own understanding.

That’s bullshit!

Our ancestors left you knowledge to gain wisdom from your own understanding. It is your truth!

Masculine and feminine are functional Equivalents within Kemetic symbolism, not male, female or man, woman.

Why do you think the neters are always in pairs of masculine and feminine?

Because it is a clue to help you gain a deeper understanding and wisdom. Not just accumulate facts, dates, and trivia.

You don’t know what a functional equivalent is? Then it’s time for you to get deeper!

Knowledge alone can’t do that for you! Knowledge might uplift you, but wisdom empowers you!

If all you do is learn dates, facts, and interpretations, you are practicing Maa, not Maat!





how fish became a savior

Ask yourself, why is the symbol for Christianity a fish? Why does the papal Mitre look like the open mouth of a fish? Why is one of the nicknames of Jesus the fisher of men?

Heru is the personified principle of perpetual renewal in ancient Khemet. Every year the Nile river floods. It is called the “inundation.” This yearly flood would bring fish for the people of ancient Egypt to eat year, after year, after year. In other words the Nile would perpetually flood and the people would not starve because of the abundance of fish.

The fish became a metaphor for the universal principle of perpetual renewal. The principle of perpetual renewal was personified in Heru and the fish became a metaphor for Heru. Another nickname for Heru was “mesu” which means savior and later became the word messiah.

Heru the mesu, “saved” the people from starvation in the form of a fish!

The flood would happen at the same time every year. As the civilization developed astrology came into play. The time of the flood became represented by the fish or the sign pieces. The supposed resurrection of Jesus is in the sign of pieces. Coincidence? I think not!

So how is Jesus connected to Heru? Heru had many nicknames as does Jesus. As stated above one of Heru’s nicknames was the “mesu” or savior.

Heru being the personified principle of perpetual renewal also was

The Christian church and the fish symbol are connected to ancient African myth

connected to the sun. The sun perpetually rises every day. His nickname associated with the sun as an object of perpetual renewal was Iu the Sa or Iusa. Iusa means the ever coming sun. Iusa later became the Hebrew word Yeshua. The Greeks name for Heru was Iuseous. There was no /j/ in the English language until the 1600’s. The /j/ was simply an embellishment of the letter /i/.

Iuseous was translated to the English Jesus almost 1500 years after the supposed birth of the sun of God and our savior or as the Ancient Egyptians called him the Neb Krst or Christ the Lord.

So now you know a very condensed version of why the pope wears a fish on his head. It’s Astrological born from the myths of the people of the Nile river.

It’s all written down in Africa on the walls of the temples.


Maat means balance


Did you know that your soul perceives through you every day? How do you recognize when this happens? The way you experience the divine feminine is unique to everyone.

One of the causalities of western reliance on a rational thought process is the belief that the rational mind is the BEST way to perceive the world and act on it.

Maat is to have balance in all things

But rational thought is perception based in cause and effect linear time perception. It is the masculine and physical aspect of perceiving. You as a soul are outside of linear time.

The brain in analogous to a radio. When you turn it on you can hear music from it or a talk show but is the band playing the music or the talk show host inside the radio? No, the brain is only a receiver locked in linear time and space.

The soul and the way it perceives is not trapped by the perception of the brain. Time and space are irrelevant to the inner eternal you. Our African ancestors and most indigenous cultures were aware of this fact. Have you ever had a thought that you received in an instant but it takes you twenty minutes to explain it?

Have you ever had a déjà vu experience where you felt like you had experienced an event before? Have you ever dreamed what seemed like hours or days only to wake up and realize a few minutes have passed on the clock? How is it that you are able to “hear” the words of what you are now reading?

These experiences are all happening within the divine feminine aspect of your consciousness. They are natural and so common we don’t even think about it.  It is you, as a soul, perceiving the multidimensional expression of who you are.

You must begin to recognize that part of you. Especially men. We are taught by western hyper-masculine culture to not turn into our inner space of feelings and emotions. But know that in that space is the wisdom of the ages. The ability to balance your outer rational masculine and intuitive inner feminine is one of the practices of Maat.

It’s not enough to understand only the dictionary meaning of Maat as truth, justice, balance, and harmony. The application of it can be profound and life changing. Our African ancestors understood the dance of the masculine and feminine at a level most of us have yet to achieve.

As a Christianized African diaspora we have been taught to look outside ourselves for answers. We were told to look in the bible or to pray to a God believing “Him” to intervene on our behalf because he liked us more than another person. It is/was a child like way to understand the creator.

Our African ancestors had a way of viewing God and self that was empowering to them. It was a different paradigm in thinking than we do today because of our western Eurocentric roots in philosophy and religion.

I have put together an online course that will aid you in understanding the basic paradigm in the way our ancestors thought. It goes beyond historical facts and dates.

It’s designed with the person coming from Christianity to the khemetic sciences in mind. The e-course is a bridge from the limitation and fear taught in the Christian religion to a more expansive way of being through the khemetic paradigm. There is nothing else like it anywhere.

It’s a simple easy to follow outline that will give you a coherent understanding of the basics within khemetic science.

Learn why it is important to understand the difference between religious beliefs and spiritual knowledge in today’s fast moving world

Learn why the religious contradictions have undermined your self-esteem and your ability trust your own mind

By learning their cosmology, you understand that you are more than your five senses and you start to think in a way that will make you more intuitive and connect to the eternal you.

Learn the ancient science and connect it to modern day science to connect it to your current knowledge, it will give you confidence beyond superstition

And much more


Ancient Egyptians and natural symbols expressing abstract ideas: The Neter Anpu (Anubis)

The neter Anpu

Ancient Egyptians used symbols from nature to express abstract concepts. The ancient Egyptian Neter Anubis (Greek) or Anpu (Egyptian) is known as the guardian of the dead. Anpu is as a neter goes back into pre-historic times. In ancient inner Africa this neter was first represented by the jackal before the domestication of the dog.

The neter Anpu

Most people will pass along the idea that Anpu and other neters were deities worshiped by the ancient Egyptians. This is not true. We have a tendency or bias in seeing ancient civilizations as primitive, and primitive being synonymous with ignorant and superstitious compared to our modern civilization.

We also assume that every civilization in the past thought about the world and life as we do today. Both these assumptions will lead you to erroneous conclusion about what the ancient Egyptians believed about the neters they represented in their art and myths.

Anpu as an abstract Idea

Anpu as the dog-headed neter represented abstract ideas. The symbols and signs that became part of the Egyptian lexicon and ideographs are very ancient in their development. In order to understand the symbol of Anpu, one must understand the function and abilities that a dog had in the lives of the ancient people of the African civilizations.

Dogs had the keen ability to track its prey with smell and keen eyesight. The dog was forever watchful and on guard to protect its loved ones. Animals and their abilities were always the first teachers of ancient man and the first to be seen as having certain abilities superior to man.

It was the functional representation of the abilities of the dog as a guide that later became the Neter Anpu.

Anpu represented the metaphysical idea of a Guide in the afterlife. Not the worshiping of the Dog. The traits of the dog and jackal before it gives you an idea of how the guide function in its abstract setting. Anpu, as with all Neters are representative of principles and/or Universal laws.

Don’t interpret use insight

If you try only to interpret the symbols you will miss the deeper meanings that they carry. The symbol had all of the qualities of the animal attached to them. Interpretation implies one specific fixed meaning.

The ancient Egyptians were very clever in the use of symbol to evoke insight from within its initiates and not to tell them what to think. In the case of a dog as the symbol, the more you know about dogs the more insight you could gain from the symbol and how it was used.

What do you know about dogs and their abilities? The ancient Egyptians are expressing the metaphysical and abstract idea that you have guides in the afterlife. You are not alone.

The more you know about the functions and abilities of dogs and before that jackals the more you can understand about the Egyptian neter Anpu and how it functions in the afterlife.

In conclusion

Let’s look a little deeper into what the ancients left us.

Don’t make the erroneous assumption that they saw the world and experience it as we do today.

Consider how ideas may have been expressed before language and you can get a deeper understanding of the development and meaning of the ancient symbolic expression.

Don’t make the modern biased assumption that there is nothing the ancients knew that we don’t know today.
