We know this from the above definitions and from the following:
As people moved from the central African birthplace, they referred to Aethiopia as the northern abyss, then Habesh became the abyss, then Nubia, then Upper Egypt then Lower Egypt then Phoenicia. As the awareness of the extent of the land increased, so also did the boundaries of what was called the abyss. Thus, once these same people formed the country of Kemet, since they knew they were northernmost, they referred to all the lands south as Khent. Each of these places was indeed a birthplace for the next. Also, by that time, these central African people had traveled south from central and inhabited down to the southern tip of Africa.
