Imperial Matter

At publication date, a version of this title will be available through Luminos, University of California Press' new open access publishing program. What is the role of the material world in shaping the tensions and paradoxes of imperial sovereignty? Scholars have long shed light on the complex processes of conquest, extraction, and colonialism under imperial rule. But imperialism has usually been cast as an exclusively human drama, one in which the world of matter does not play an active role. Lori Khatchadourian argues instead that things-from everyday objects to monumental buildings-profoundly shape social and political life under empire. Out of the archaeology of ancient Persia and the South Caucasus, Imperial Matter advances powerful new analytical approaches to the study of imperialism writ large and should be read by scholars working on empire across the humanities and social sciences.

The Grand Civilization, Ancient Egypt's Profound Mysteries: The Esoteric Sources of Their Knowledge

Penetrate one of the Greatest Mysteries of the Ancient Ages.Few puzzles have captured the fascination of enlightened minds so much as the incredible majesty and achievements of the civilization of Ancient Egypt. No one knows from whence the early Egyptians came, yet no people, ancient or modern, have conceived of building a civilization on a scale so sublime, so great, so grandiose, as the Ancient Egyptians. Their technology of architecture, agriculture, metallurgy, and engineering; the invention of glass and linen, of paper and ink, of the calendar and the clock, of geometry and the alphabet; the excellence and sublimity of sculpture and the arts; the advancement of writing and literature, of science and medicine; the first clear formulation known to us of public conscience, the first emergence of social justice, the first widespread monogamy, the first monotheism . . . all elevated to a degree of superiority and power that has seldom, if ever, been equaled since."It is even possible," as Faure said, "...that Ancient Egypt offers the spectacle of the greatest civilization that has yet appeared on the earth. We shall do well to equal it."The recovery of Ancient Egypt is one of the most brilliant chapters in archaeology. The Middle Ages knew of Egypt only as a Roman colony; the Renaissance presumed that civilization had begun with Greece; even the Enlightenment knew nothing of Ancient Egypt beyond the Pyramids. Egyptology was a by-product of Napoleonic imperialism. When the Corsican led a French expedition to Egypt in 1798 he took with him scholars interested in Egypt for the sake of a better understanding of history. It was those men who returned home with the greatest mystery of the ages in their grasp, and first revealed the magnificent temples of Luxor and Karnak to the modern world.The ascension of ancient Egyptian civilization to a previously unknown zenith of majesty and culture lasting thousands of years demonstrated advancements that are wholly inexplicable. How did a small stone-age culture abruptly rise to create perhaps the greatest civilization of known history? Where did their unprecedented knowledge, power, and sophistication come from?The voluminous lore of ancient Egyptian tradition relates that in the antediluvian time of Zep Tepi, the "first time," mysterious, highly enlightened "gods" appeared in Egypt, bearing previously unknown technology and knowledge. The texts inscribed on the walls of the Temple of Edfu in Upper Egypt contain explicit descriptions of the time of Zep Tepi and the coming of the "bringers of knowledge," recounting their arrival in a "cosmic egg" radiating colored light, bearing the "gods" who brought the gift of civilization to Egypt and whose rule, the texts tell us, began circa 18,000 B.C.Plato writes that Egyptian priests kept records of their history going back over nineteen-thousand years: "Egypt has recorded and kept eternally the wisdom of the ancient ages, all coming from time immemorial when gods governed the earth in the dawn of civilization."Herodotus tells us that when Hecataeus of Miletus boasted to the Egyptian priests that he could trace his ancestry through fifteen centuries, they quietly showed him, in a hidden sanctuary deep under the sands, the statutes of 345 high priests, marking an historical record extending back some one-hundred-ninety centuries since their "gods" had appeared in the Nile valley. Who were these mysterious beings? Why did they come, and from where? Explore an opportunity to penetrate these profound mysteries in a captivating and richly enlightening account. Discover extraordinary revelations long concealed in myth, legends, and secrecy. A Kindle Unlimited Book you will not forget. 2018 Edition, Kindle e-reader page count 276 (estimated, actual count varies with the reading device used).

Meade Versus The United States of America Caliphornia Tallahassee Mississippi Alabama (Opening Of The Seven Seals)

The plaintiff, Michael R. Meade, comes before this Federal Court, Middle District of Florida, Orlando Division, citing Federal Question Jurisdiction (28 U.S. C. 1331) and sues the United States of America that is in clear violation of the "First Amendment" of the U.S. Constitution that prohibits the making of any law respecting the establishment of religion by allowing the individual states of Florida, Alabama and Mississippi to continue to fly "X" shaped flags that represent Jesus Christ (King of the Jews) the Catholic Church and Christianity over their Capitols and government buildings.

The plaintiff additionally sues the states of Florida, Mississippi and Alabama (cc. Georgia) citing Federal Question Jurisdiction (28 U.S. C. 1331) that are in clear violation of the "First Amendment" of the U.S. Constitution via the "Establishment Clause" that prohibits the making of any law respecting the establishment of religion by flying their "X" shaped flags that represent Jesus Christ (King of the Jews) the Catholic Church and Christianity over their Capitols and government buildings.

The "X" shaped flags of the states of Florida, Alabama and Mississippi tantamount to a religious display clearly representing Jesus Christ (King of the Jews) the Catholic Church and the Religion of Christianity that brought all the Slaves to the Americas, the United States of America and the Caribbean using official ships of the Spanish Empire (Holy Roman Empire, Catholic Church) and the British Empire flying the "X" shaped flags.

The "X" shaped flags of the states of Florida, Alabama and Mississippi tantamount to a religious display clearly representing Jesus Christ (King of the Jews) the Catholic Church and the Religion of Christianity that has persecuted the European People, the Ashkenazi Eastern European Slavic Jews for thousands of years.

The "X" shaped flags of the states of Florida, Alabama and Mississippi tantamount to a religious display clearly representing Jesus Christ (King of the Jews) the Catholic Church and the Religion of Christianity that was responsible for the Civil War between the north and south (Confederacy) that lasted from 1861 to 1865 that ended in a Geneocide and Holocaust. During this Civil War these "X" shaped flags were responsible for eight hundred thousand mostly poor innocent European men, who didn't own any slaves, being targets of annihilation by each other in this "Gladiator fight" killing each other to lean down the herd of Holy cows, the Holy Caucasians in this religious Holocaust. Many of those poor young European men from Ireland had just been exiled to the United States by Great Britain and were forced to fight against the British Empire that flew a combination of the "X" shape flag of Scotland and the "t" shape flag of England that is a religious display clearly representing Jesus Christ (King of the Jews) and the Religion of Christianity.

The "X" shaped flags of Florida, Alabama and Mississippi have tumbled and penetrated that great barrier and high wall of the "First Amendment" of the Constitution from its inception although it was supposed to be used to separate the church from the United States Government and individual state governments.

By continuing to fly these "X" shape flags over the State Capitols in Florida, Alabama and Mississippi with the approval and consent of the President of the United States, the Governors and the U.S. and States Congress is a tacit recognition of Jesus Christ the Catholic Church and Christianity and gives credence and credibility to the "Atlantic Slave Trade", "Slavery" and all the atrocities and Holocausts perpetrated against innocent European peoples, the Ashkenazi Eastern European Slavic Jewish men women children and even babies.

Wherefore, the Plaintiff, Michael R. Meade, prays the Honorable Court take jurisdiction of this "Federal Question" (28 U.S. C. 1331) case and give "Answer" to the constitutionality of the states.
