The Meta-Herstory of Ma'atematics: 'Lunacy' or Falsehood? (Pt. 1 of 4)

It’s been pointed out in various neurology books and journals that the human brain is divided into two hemispheres, with each having its own distinct function. According to some scientists, the left hemisphere is masculine, and is geared towards mathematical, linear reasoning, while the right is characterized as the artistically creative, intuitive feminine counterpart.

I’ve disagreed with this attribution for a long time—and not so much because I think that it’s an overgeneralization of male and female thought processes—which it is in some ways, but because it completely contradicts what I’ve observed from my personal interactions with men and women over the years. After I saw a lecture featuring educator Kaba Hiawatha Kamene (a.k.a Booker T. Coleman) on public access television 11 years ago, I realized that I wasn’t alone in my gender classification of the hemispheres.

In a lecture entitled: The Evolutionary Process of How Human Life Came into Being, Kamene, who is an acclaimed teacher of African history and culture, poses the argument that the disciplines of science and mathematics were created by Black women. Kamene argues that necessity truly is the mother of invention. He says that men, who were fundamentally the hunter-gatherers of antiquity, had no fundamental reason to learn how to count. “It was women who invented science and mathematics in the first place, men did not create math and science,” Kamene asserts.

He says that it was necessary for women to develop a system of numbers in order to chart their menstrual cycles, which mirror the lunar cycle. Kamene explains that African women developed the lunar calendar after making this careful observation thousands of years ago. “For thousands of years sistas passed [the science of numbers] down from mother to daughter,” says Kamene in the lecture. This partially explains why the moon was usually symbolic of the Black goddess, namely Auset, in ancient Kemet (Egypt).

Kamene’s premise that Black women were the first mathematicians is further legitimized by the fact that the world’s first calendars were lunar, having 13 months, each about 28 or 29 days long. From a common sense standpoint, the idea that the original calendars were lunar in nature makes perfect sense, because it is easier to chart the four phase changes of the moon than it is to chart the rising and setting of the sun.

In the night time, you can stare at the moon for several hours on end, whereas you have a relatively smaller window of opportunity to accurately chart the times that the sun rises and sets over the course of a solar calendar year. To do that requires an intense, unwavering focus that can only be achieved through the cultivation of Ra’s force within man. At one time or another you may have thought to yourself how strange it is that the 12 months in our current solar calendar vary in length. Some months have 31 days, while others have 30 or 29.

However, if you only count the first 28 days for each month in our current calendar year, and add up the remainders, there will be enough extra days to form a 13th month that is exactly 29 days long. When we think about how this impacts on the discipline of astrology—which is an occult science that initially took root while the lunar calendar was still in use—it must be understood that there have always been 13 zodiac signs. However, the 13th was not openly acknowledged by the larger society until recently. There is a reason for this, and it is tied to the Fall of Man.

The more that archetypal humanity’s appetite for the physical world intensified, the more that we degenerated into physical beings and polarized into gender forms. The Dogon of Mali tell a very interesting version of this story. You can read about it and much more in Conversations with Ogotommeli: An Introduction to Dogon Religious Ideas by Marcel Griaule and Germaine Dieterlen. These European men also wrote The Pale Fox, which was a follow up to that excellent book. As a result of the Fall, the King and Queen of heaven became subjects of, and subjected to, external stellar influences. What are these stellar influences, you ask? Well, they are the distinct energy frequencies emanating from the aggregate of celestial bodies that we call the sun, moon, stars, and planets in our solar system.

                                           The Akan goddess, N'Game

In Akan cosmology we learn about the triple black moon goddess N’Game (pronounced “Ingamay”). She is not to be confused with the supreme Akan God N’YaMeh/YaWeh. According to Akan myth, N’Game animated human beings by shooting arrows into their hearts with her bow. From N’Game’s bow we get the crescent moon of Islam, which is pretty much shaped like a bow. However, this ancient Akan creation story is just a metaphor used to describe the piercing influence that the moon’s emitted magnetic force has on man’s psyche. When you have a full moon, the water in the ocean becomes restless and the tide is higher than usual.

Etymologically speaking, the word “Time” is of Germanic origin, and it comes from the word “Tide.” The moon, which was used to measure “time,” also controls the ocean’s “tide.” Since 72 percent of the human body is made out of water, we know that the magnetic energy that the moon emits in the form of N’Game’s arrow has a marked influence on our thought processes, and consequently, our actions.

Numerous statistics across the globe have proven that the number of murders go up when there is a full moon. These acts of violence are committed by “lunatics” who have not evolved enough spiritually to withstand the rising tide of “lunar” power that is present at the peak of the lunar month. We should strive to drink water that has a high PH factor because it can assist us in maintaining our mental equilibrium. Life’s a game, and the world is a chessboard in the eyes of N’Game. Her prized chess pieces make up the faceless sea of humanity. We are drawing closer to End Game.

Interestingly, the flag that the Moroccan Moors used when they were still at the height of their power during the 12th and 13th centuries was a chessboard in front of a red background. Unbeknownst to many, the Moors introduced the game of chess to Europe during that period. These Moors did not use the red flag with the green pentagram that we see at the United Nations today.

                                Flag of Morocco circa 1147 - 1269  C.E.


Check out the album cover for Marvin Gaye’s last Motown album which was entitled, In Our Lifetime (1981), and look very carefully at the artwork. You will see the chessboard in the center framed by a red background. Motown released In Our Lifetime on Martin Luther King’s birthday while Gaye was preparing to embark on a tour of Southern Europe, which was once part of the Moorish empire known as Al-Andalus. Like the Moorish noble Othello, from the Shakespearean play of the same name, Gaye had become obsessed with a white girl, and her name was Cocaine.

The esoteric meaning behind Morocco’s current flag with the green pentagram and red background is extremely ancient. It visually recounts the story behind The Lucifer Experiment which I’ve discussed before. The red background represents the sun, and the pentagram equates to Lucifer, in the form of Venus, trying in vain to match the brilliance of the sun. Astronomically speaking, the sun is THE Morning Star because it’s the only star that we can see in the morning. The only other celestial body that is consistently visible in the morning time besides the sun is the planet Venus.

Venus aspires to be as bright as the sun, just as Lucifer aspired to attain God’s greatness without having to make the mistakes that foster the wisdom that inevitably makes one great. This explains why Netzach (Venus) occupies the 7th sphere on the Kabbalistic Tree of Life, while Tiphareth (Sun) occupies the 6th sphere right above it. When someone is in a Netzach state of mind they aspire to capture the Beauty of Tiphareth, which of course, is no minor Victory.

Still, none of this changes the fact that the current Moroccan flag is NOT the flag that the Moors of Al-Andulas used when they culturally dominated Europe for nearly 800 years. It became the national flag of Morocco LONG after the Moroccan Moors suffered the same fate that Lucifer did in 1492 (1+4+9+2=16; 1+6=7=Netzach=Venus=Lucifer). 1492 was a Lucifer year for the once mighty Moorish empire. The Moors’ fall from grace was mythologized by Shakespeare in his play, Othello.

The 64 black and white squares on the real Moorish flag signifies the 64 codons in your DNA, while the red background represents the solar nourishment that it absorbs, and processes, to help foster your transformation into a true light bearer. The word “Kabbala” means to “receive” and what a Kabbalist receives is light code transmissions from The Most High. Plants are master Kabbalists, which is precisely why we should eat them more often. The only way that you can attract God’s light is by having a genuine desire to grow—not so that you can show off and act like you’re better than other people who don’t know what you know—but out of a genuine desire to reclaim your godhood, which in essence, is the salvation of your soul.

An image is worth a thousand words, and this particular Moorish flag is quite literally a graphic explanation of applied Kabbalistic science. It is no wonder that the Kabbala as we know it was first introduced to Europe, along with the game of chess, during the 13th century when the chessboard flag was the national flag of Morocco.
