Sankofa Life By Expanding Definitions & Meanings, Unity Consciousness #938” This message expands understandings of Ank, Ankh but is not an exhaustive study.
ANKH – Expanded Definition & Meanings Of The Second Part Of SankofaForms of Ankh are: A, Ank, Nakh, Nak, Nas, Hank, NK, N, K, Nan, Ankhu, Ng, Nga, Nge, Nye, Eka, Ich[ichor], I, Ing, Ka, Sa, Ark. All of these words are aspects of Ankh and Many are interchangeable. (NG1 77/95 ) (NG1 196/214) (NG1 191/209) (NG1 259/277) (BB 204-5/216-7) Ankh is the mirror. (AE1 30/40) Ankh is the feminine first, the one who duplicates. The female alone divides to become Two; therefore she is “The Only One” who existed from the Beginning. The Ba is male and secondary and created; therefore the Ka or Sa is female and primary and uncreated. (NG1 190/208) (NG1 259/277) Ankh is “I,” the first personal pronoun. Nge as Nga wears down to the Eka, Ich, and I. I is also the king, the living one [I + NG = Ing]. (NG1 26-7/44-5) (NG1 196/214) Ankh is Unku (Spirit). The spirit was primarily the breath, hence the connection with the nose as an organ of breathing, and a type of the I. The Inner African “Nge” is the most common form of the personal pronoun “I” throughout the world. Nge represents the nose, the personal pronoun “I” and the Ankh.
The mouth, eye, nose, and ear are all forms of the Ankh of life and living; the being, the one who is, the I am, I see, I hear, I breathe, I smell out, I perceive. [the more optimally we use sensing abilities, the more alive we become because we are optimizing the life potential within and without] [from this section we also get the sense that Aunt and Uncle are feminine/masculine spellings of Ankh] (NG1 27/45 ) “Nge or Nye is the African guttural nasal, NO, the Sound of Negation which was first, whether represented by the Water, the Motherhood, or the left hand.” [Thus no then yes; negative then positive; water then air; mother then father; left then right, neither then either] (NG1 191/209) The clenched hand striking the breast repeatedly is the gesture-sign of Ankh. It represents the personal pronoun “I”, 'myself.” (NG1 26/44) Ankh is the phonetic “N” as the first sign of water. (BB 204-5/216-7) Ankh is “N” sounded as Ng. This root of the Number One gave the name to the Ank for king, the male who came to the front as the chief one, the ruling “I” of later times.
“U” is inherent in the “I”, thus “I” is “IU.” In other words, I means I and You. I signifies the dual or Twin One. I as one is two in one. I as me, myself is one part of two. (NG1 284/302)
[the female is the first I, Ankh and ruing chief one] The earliest male Ankh was not the father, but the uncle, or sister's brother, on account of the blood-tie. [the reversal of this is for the aunt, the sister of the male ruler to become ruler or for the daughter of the Mother to become ruler] (NG1 195-6/213-4) Ankh as Ng is the first person who duplicates. (NG1 190/208) The female was the first known reproducer of the particular child, and therefore was recognized and named as the primal parent, the one, the earliest Ankh or Ancestor. (NG1 196/214) Ankh means Number 1, oneness, which is represented by the Ankh-tie, the Hank or Ing as a community [common unity]. (NG1 190/208) Ankh means family or people of a district. [In early stages, the trinity was Great Mother, Mother, Son]In later stages, the trinity was Father, Mother, Son. The symbol was the cross, thus represented family, oneness, tri-unity. (NG1 66/84) (NG1 442/460) Ankh means Number 2, The Duplicator, the duplicated, and to duplicate, to double, a pair, is the name of the mother in the duplicative stage. (NG1 191/209) (NG1 259/277) (NG1 196/214) Nga is the earlier form of Ka. “Nga” denotes fetching breath. Fetching is getting and getting is bringing forth. (NG1 272-3/290-1) Ankh means life, living, sustain life, life to come, Mother of Life, Goddess of Life, water as liquid life, liquid oil of life, reproduction, certain organs of life... (AE1 116/126) (NG1 25/43) (NG1 77/95 ) (NG1 107-8/125-6) (NG1 196/214) (NG1 428/451) (NG1 533/551) (BB 56/68) (BB 204-5/216-7) Ankh was symbolized as celestial bodies, plants, human body parts and animal body parts. Human body parts symbolized life and the animal body parts symbolized superior powers of life because the abilities of certain animals were keener. We can now revisit so-called “animal worship and begin to understand what our Ancestors were communicating by mixing their bodies with animals, plants and planets and other symbols of the natural world from which we were all formed.
Ankh the ear, ears and ear of jackal or dog represents hearing. (NG1 72-3/90-1) (NG1 81/99)
Ankh the eye, eyes and eye of the hawk represents sight. (NG1 72-3/90-1)
Ankh the nose and nose of the vulture and kaf-ape represents smell. (NG1 72-3/90-1)
Ankh the mouth and mouth of the sow and hippopotamus represents the mouth of the Great Mother as the door, gate and outlet. (NG1 72-3/90-1) (NG1 423/446)
Ankh the nails and claw of lion represents puberty and self-renewal. Nails and hair are equivalents. (NG1 72-3/90-1) (NG1 102/120)
Ankh the beard and horn of rhinoceros represents puberty and self-renewal. (NG1 72-3/90-1) (NG1 130/148)
Ankh the tooth of the bear. The tooth of Hu, the Adult represents puberty. (NG1 72-3/90-1) (NG1 209-10/227-8) Ankh means the crib, the cradle of new life, the abode of the four corners, or four parts by name.
The Great Mother with the Ankh-cross of life to come was continued as the Ankh-cross of the genitrix [genesis, origin] in a cruciform figure. Amongst the images recovered from the ancient tombs of Cyprus is one called the “crucifixion of the Great Mother.” It shows a cruciform female figure, and the ligature looks as if the one arm that is now left might have been bound to a piece of wood. But the pre-Christian cross does not imply any actual crucifixion. [Likely shows that Mother, Tree and Cross are One in the same as Three Ankhs, this then being another trinity] The Christian cross is the Ankh which illustrates life and is not supposed to be used to represent death or the Roman instrument of torture. (NG1 436-7/455-56) Ankh is the Crux Ansata, the first Christian Cross.“ The current-day Christian cross as the emblem and proof of a crucified Christ is purely Egyptian, but has no relation either direct or typical to the crucifixion, which has been all along ignorantly assumed to give its significance to the cross. The Christian use of the Ankh proves the Christians [and Hebrews] belonged to Egypt's Osirian religion. (NG1 435/458) Ankh is the circle and cross are inseparable. The Ankh-loop, the sign of one turn round, consists of a circle and a cross or crossing of the ends. This, however, is not the cross of the later four corners. The Crux Ansata unites the circle and cross of the four corners, four quarters. From this origin the circle and the cross came to be interchangeable at times. (NG1 421/444) Ankh as the cross was the most sacred cross of Egypt that was carried in the hands of the Gods, the Pharaohs, and the mummified dead. The top of this cross is the hieroglyphic Ru set upright on the Tau-cross (“T”). The Ru is feminine and denotes the birthplace in the northern quarter of the heavens from which the sun is re-born. It was in the northern quarter that the goddess of the Seven Stars, called the “Mother of the Revolutions," gave birth to time in the earliest circle of the year. The first sign of this primordial circle and cycle made in heaven is the earliest shape of the Ankh-cross, a mere loop which contains both a circle and the cross in one image. This loop or noose is carried in front of the oldest genitrix, Typhon of the Great Bear, as her Ark, the ideograph of a period, an ending, a time, shown to mean one revolution. (NG1 423/446) The Kher, Kheru or Rekh is a dual sign of the cross and circle and means means the Word, Voice, or the later solar Logos. Ker is Kr is Rk, for the circle, circuit, course of time, or turn round, is identical with the Ark, a period or cycle of time.[thus Kronus, Cross, Christ, Circle, chronology] The Kr and Ark, signs of the Cross and circle, or the Crossed circle, likewise correspond; and the Ptolemeian or Greek form of the Kr symbol is the later equivalent for the Ark-tie, which, from the beginning, contained both the circle (ru) and the Cross (Chi or Khi). The “Ark” was the sign of the annual circle when it was made by the Great Bear. (NG1 444/462) Ankh is motion, time, period, cycle, circle. (NG1 423/446) From the earliest times, the Ank as noose and cross was the express emblem of life to come held in front of the enceinte (oldest) genitrix as she brooded over the dead in the tomb, womb, or Meskhen of the second birth. This place of re-birth and of life to come was imaged by Apt, the Hippopotamus Goddess of the Great Bear, who was represented as the gestator either in the crucial pangs of travail delivering physical birth or in the act of bringing the dead of the first death to their second birth (immortality of spirit-soul). (NG1 436/454) This survived in Rome where the mother as cross is one of the chief figures in the catacombs. There she is taken to represent the Church and the Bride of Christ. The mother as cross is identical with the ancient mother of life who holds her cross before her pregnant womb in token of the life to come. She was also the virgin mother, who produced without the fatherhood. (NG1 440/458) The Complete Ankh-Cross Of Life is , the Ankh Cross with two vertical arms, each ending in a short horizontal arm as arms and hands upraised: enables me to prove the origin of this cross as a sign of north and south, Sothis was a masculine or southern type of the Goddess of the Seven Stars, who was thus represented by the Ru of the north and the Pyramid of the south. The top is the Ru of the birthplace in the north, and the bottom is the symbol of the south! With the two arms it presents the figure of above (north feminine), and below (south masculine) with the crossing east and west, or right hand and left.
When the Ru sign is set on the staff, the staff is a symbol of the tree. The staff or rod is a reduced form of the tree. The tree and cross of life are identical symbols. (423-4/446-7) (NG1 436/459) The cross-type is a continuation of the tree, and it equates with the tree, the mount, and the conical pillar of Aphrodite, all three being primary images of the mother as the cross, mother of life and goddess of the four quarters. (NG1 440/458) About 390 A.D., when the Christians were destroying evidence of the tell-tale past during the time of Bishop Theophilus, they came upon the Ankh-cross they had adopted. The native Christians had to explain to the newer Christians, the age, significance and origin of the cross. The cross was placed in the hands of the dead, and the cross was bound to their bodies as the sign of life to come. Thus, images of those with arms outstretched in cruciform or bound to a cross were not representations of dying but being placed in a symbolic position of the Ankh, the life to come. (NG1 435-6/453-4) As the consciousness of the pre-Christian origins grew, there was an endeavor made to revise and revise; the latest of these attempts being the revision of the New Testament in the nineteenth century,(1800's A.D. About 200 years ago) by the correction of some thirty thousand errors in the “‘ Word of God.” (NG1 441-2/459-60) Ankh as The Tau cross T, our letter T, is connected with the number 9. The T is also a numerical three, a cross of three-quarters instead of four, and so becomes a figure of nine months, or nine divisions of the twelve which were completed by the three water signs, or the abyss in the north, represented by the 0 of the ankh-cross. (NG1 424/227) It is the goddess Ankh who wears a crown of hemp-stalks on her head, typical of the weaver of the woof [woven fabric] and spinner of the thread of life. She is also the goddess Neith who is the knitter. The knotted tie is one of the most primitive and important of all the African fetishes. It is the gree-gree of Inner Africa. The Ankh-tie itself is originally merely a piece of string called a strap. The Gree-Gree is a also a bracelet or necklace that is a form of the ankh. (NG1 92/110) (AE1 116/126) (NG1 533/551) Ankh means dress, undress, tie, fasten, knit, weave, spinner and weaver of thread of life and linen hung up to dry.
The tie in Egypt takes several forms in the Ankh, the Tet, the Sa.. (AE1 116/126) Ankh means to pair, couple, twin, clasp, clench, duplicate, surround, envelop, capture, covenant, oath, agreement, unity, thus naturally includes marriage[“tying the knot,” “getting hitched”]. (NG1 25-6/43-4) (NG1 89/107) (NG1 107/125) (NG1 423/446) Ankh is symbolized by the tie, knot, noose, clasp. The knot was carried by the Great Mother as her emblem. (NG1 25-6/43-4) (NG1 107-8/125-6) Ankh is symbolized by clasping, shaking and squeezing hands as a covenant and of good fellowship. The clasping of hands is equivalent to the perfect two-oneness. Being of one accord. This is one of many reasons why Eurasian invaders were and still are successful with deceit by using the smiling face and the handshake. It is in the epigenetics of human beingness to recognize these gestures of sign language at much deeper levels of awareness. (NG1 88-9/106-7) Ankh is symbolized by the bivalve mollusk such as oyster and clam. (NG1 89/107) Ankh is symbolized by the Moon as reflector of Sun and Generator of Light in the Mirror. (AE1 30/40)
Go Back Where & Fetch What?Go back and look at yourself in the mirrors of the Great Mother.
Go back to infinity 0, 1 and 2. When you reach 9, recompile summarize items in total as 10, then with zero as beginning and end, repeat until you reach the other end of infinity.
Go back to I who is One and fetch everyone.
Fetch the female who was first and remember the original order of Creation so you can understand the progression of “the now” and “the to come” by going back through “the past” to bring understandings, as they actually occurred, to the front of consciousness.
Once you have fetched the female, you will be back in agreement with self because you will have both female and male in one, the duality of the law of apposites, opposites, two truths and twin powers, of which the female is proportionally larger.
Get the Christs and Karasts (Karests) straightened out and criss-crossed.
Untie and retie the knot on what you forgot about Maat.
Remember the time period of day and Age, the repeating cycles of life after (preexistence), life before (from creation to now) and life to come.
In you is the Ankh in all forms which means if you are the Ankh in your parts, you are the Ankh in total. This, you will once again mature into knowing, as you reunite all pieces of spirit-soul.
As this logic entry shows, you live and exist in the body of the Ankh, the Mother tree of life, of spirit energy and matter, of singularity, duality, trinity family and plurality - individually collectively. Go back and reattach life, self-renewal and resurrection to the knowledge already resident in the genetics of self.
Stop and question for directions to reorient sense of self lost by understanding where you are in the circle and cycle of covenant and cross.
Travel back across many waters and reignite the spark in the Ark of the covenant of heart-absolutely resolutely. The easiest part of the future is understanding where you've been. Go back into the Double Source transformation place. Go back and fetch the metaform of the Ankh-key to who you are.
Go back to the primordial and fetch primitive knowledge of self and all else to restore your strength of genetic potential, thus health.
