The creation of writing in 6000 BCE has been lauded as mankind’s greatest invention. So how did we communicate before writing? Did it all begin with wild gestures and over-articulated sounds, or could the ancient civilizations have simply devolved in consciousness–and writing became a necessity for us to remember our past?
Egyptian wisdom keeper Hakim Abd’El Hakim Awyan believed that we once lived in the Age of Aten when mankind was at the height of enlightenment. Our communication was telepathic, so there was no need for a written or spoken language. Imagine the implicit need for society to live in truth. It was a time when nothing could be hidden. No lies. No ulterior motives. Sound was considered to be holy and sacred. Chanting and meditation were the way we all linked ourselves to a higher Source in order to maintain our health and Unity consciousness.
When a massive cataclysm occurred, we fell in consciousness into the dark age of Amun or the Hidden One. Symbols were needed to keep the ancient traditions alive and to remember our history. Although writing has been credited to the Sumerian culture, Hakim believed that was once part of Egypt known as Sa-Mer-Ra. The Egyptian Deity most identified with the invention of writing and Hekau or sacred sound is Thoth also known as Djehuti. He is shown as having the head of an ibis on a human body.
However, it is Thoth’s consort Seshat, which means ‘women’ in the ancient Khemitian language, who brought the sacred sound into form through symbols. The ancient Egyptians credit her with the true invention of writing by creating sacred geometry. Whenever a new building was to be constructed in Egypt, Seshat was invoked to watch over the geometrical design and usher it into physical form. In fact, Seshat wears a seven-petaled crown to symbolize the seven light body emanations that bring etheric light (an idea) into the physical and material earth realm. Once writing was created we fell into polarity consciousness and separated into masculine and feminine forms. That is why a t is added to Egyptian feminine nouns. Sesh meaning people. Seshat meaning female.
