The following clips are from lectures given by Dr. Théophile Obenga where he discusses the Ancient Egyptian Origin of Atomist Philosophy. The points discussed in this lecture are expounded on more in his book entitled “African Philosophy: The Pharaonic Period: 2780-330 BC”. It is important to note that the Ancient Egyptian Atomist Philosophy dates back to roughly 2400 BC, almost 2000 years before the Greek Philosopher Democritus’s Atomist Philosophy. In the 2000 years since Democritus, Atomist Philosophy gave birth to Atomic Theory, and Atomic Theory gave birth to Electrical Technology.

Could Nun be outer space? I see so many ancients saying that water existed before anything else and even having to be “separated from” the “waters” of the earth…which obviously does not make sense on its face but when you consider that an ancient person would possibly not have the word to explain what was outside of the earth (hell, English doesn’t either…we call outer “space” “space”…which is quite a silly understatement when you think about it) then it can make sense that the place outside of the earth be considered watery. Think about the fact that you cannot breathe in space, things float, you can “swim” in space, and rays of energy wash you like waves. These factors can make a very convincing case that outer space is water of some strange sort.
Also, while it may be a tangent, I think it is telling that ancient people do use words that is similar to a thing to describe something they never experienced such as the Dogon of Mali describing ice, which none of the people in their villages had ever seen as being like a “stone” in the Pale Fox by Marcel Griaule. People have to work with the language they have.
