The Ta people and their culture, which is Noonebu Culture or what we call “Sun Culture”, have been cleverly and expertly concealed over time through being omitted, overlooked, diminished, discounted, or ignored by the established historical narratives. To unravel this, you must understand that the act of naming people, places, and things is, foremost, a cultural and legal assertion. The act of naming is also a political assertion and language is indeed an aspect of culture. And, again, culture is ultimately an expression of mind. Naming is also an economic assertion. Cultural, political, legal, and economic impositions are acts of dominance and also war. Now, that we have these facts as the foundation for this post, let’s move forward.
We’ll begin with the origin of the word, “Aethiopia” and it’s earliest known use up until the present time. The root of the word, “Aethiopia” is Aethiop or “Ethiop”. The etymology or origin of the word, “Ethiop” is as follows:
late 14c., from Latin Æthiops “Ethiopian, negro,” from Greek Aithiops, long supposed in popular etymology to be from aithein “to burn” + ops “face” (compare aithops “fiery-looking,” later “sunburned”).
To get something out of the way, at no point am I or will I imply that ancient Egyptian culture is the same as ancient Aethiopian culture. The ancient Egyptian narratives are already in place and are now being led by other dominating cultures. The word “Egypt” is in no way related to the word “Ethiopia/Aethiopia”. The etymology of the word, “Egypt” is from the ancient Greek, “Aegyptos” which referred to the lands south of the Aegean territory. Keep in mind the facts set forth in the foundation of this post about names and naming.
Moving forward, the Latin word, “Aethiops” referred to a negro or negroes. In another post, I established the fact that modern-day Ethiopia is in no way related to ancient Ethiopia, which is the Aethiopia that Strabo, Homer, and Herodotus gave accounts of. If you have not read that post, do so because it contains important information that is relevant to this topic and the use of the word, “negro” and its application in society and politics throughout history. The Egyptians were never referred to as negroes and the etymology of the word, “Egypt” in no way implies or refers to a “negro” or “negroes”. That is a fact.
You may have to read this post a few times in order to keep up with me, but I assure you that what I am conveying is fact. This is not pseudo-history. You will not be able to refute any fact or set of facts or narrative that is established by Noonebu philosophy or culture. That is a promise.
So, who were these negroes/Ethiopians/Aethiopians? Why isn’t this a part of any of the established cultural or historical narratives of any of the 3,000+ different cultures on the entire African continent? The people of Africa have accounts of history that go back many thousands of years. Yet, none of them include anything about ancient Aethiopia or ancient negroes. However, the Greeks and Romans mention them. The ancient Egyptians mentioned them. They didn’t include them in any narratives but they mentioned them. They also called them by various other names like “Macrobians”. Various other cultures also give accounts of their dealings and associations with ancient Aethiopia/Ethiopia. A region of ancient Aethiopia was also referred to as Nigritia. Again, keep in mind the facts set forth in the foundation of this post about names and naming.
It is not a mystery that the dominating cultures of the world maintain ignorance and poverty for the bulk of their populations as means of control. So, what purpose or reason would be great enough or big enough to merit the omission of one of the world’s greatest cultures? When I say great, I mean that the Aethiopian kingdoms were envied by the great kings of the world. Yes, many kings of the ancient world envied the ancient Aethiopian kingdoms. They even gave accounts of exactly why they were envious. I convey and discuss the facts about this in the Noonebu Academy.
The negroes of Aethiopia/Ethiopia were at war with all but a few cultures across the entire continent of what is now called Africa. They were surrounded by enemies. In this war, the enemies of the Ta people include ALL indigenous cultures on the continent of Africa. These cultures include any culture that claims to have a history going back many thousands of years yet somehow they have no publicized accounts of the Ta people or their culture and also do not claim any affiliation with the Ta people or Ta culture. However, though these various cultures do not claim or publicize their accounts with the Ta people or ancient Aethiopia/Ethiopia, the accounts are there. The same names for the people and territory of the ancient Aethiopia/Ethiopia are not used. Why? Because again, the Ta people were at war with all of these other cultures. You can only fight a war in which you are surrounded for so long. So, over time, the Ta people suffered multiple defeats which eventually led the fall of the ancient Ethiopian kingdoms. As they lost cultural, political, and economic dominance, they were condemned from memory and narratives. Such an act is called “Damnatio Memoriae” in western culture, which means “condemnation of memory”. The intent is to erase someone, a people, a culture, a place, an event, or even an era from memory. However, a record of anything that was condemned was maintained because it was a legal act that had to be approved at the highest levels of a culture. This same practice is found amongst many other cultures by many other names. This also includes most of the African cultures. This is why the 3,000+ cultures in Africa do not claim ancient Aethiopia, negroes (Black Americans) or mention them in any of their narratives still to this day.
The words “Ethiopia”, “Ethiopian”, and “Ethiops” are not words used by the Ta people to describe themselves, the word “Ta” is. Keeping in mind the facts about what names and naming are actually about, those words are cultural, political, and economic assertions on behalf of Greek/Latin/European culture. In this same way, the word Nippon became “Japan” or Sverige became “Sweden”. In this same way, The various tribes of Native Americans became “Indians”. In this same way, Kana’an became “Phoenicia”. In this same way, the Ta became negroes/Ethiopians, Ethiops, and “Macrobians” amongst other names.
So, again, keep in mind the facts set forth in the foundation of this post about names and naming. Names and naming are unique to humans. Therefore, names are a human thing. The act of naming is a right that is set forth and maintained by human adults. Therefore, naming is controlled by human adults. Adults name people, places, and things. When people assert cultural, political, legal, and economic dominance over a person, place, or thing, they call it what they want to call it. When people impose cultural, political, legal, and economic dominance over a person, place, or thing, that is an act of war, a sustained effort to deal with or end a particularly unpleasant or undesirable situation or condition. Yes, war is defined as a struggle or competition between opposing forces or for a particular end. Imagine somebody coming into your house, telling you what you can and can’t do, running shit through force, and renaming you and everything that you know. That’s not an act of peace. That’s not an act of love. That’s not an act of respect. That’s not an act of honor. That is an act of cultural (mental), political, legal, and economic hostility. When those of one culture, assert their dominance over another, that is an act of war. That is a fact. So, you have not heard of the Ta people because of a concerted effort to conceal the identity, names, and heritage of the Ta people as a result of a massive war that has been banished from inclusion in any historical narratives concerning Africa, Europe, and the Middle East. What’s more interesting is the reason for that war and the evidence of it. Are you ready to learn more about this topic?
