Thanos, you need to read up no this...the haplotypes.


You didn't catch my drift Re the Uruk gene. Your theory predicts an elite from Uruk ruling in Lower (or Upper Egypt). Palace facades don't prove that, only suggest it. However, if a D II ruler shows the J2 haplotype, that is powerful evidence that an Uruki descendant made into the royal lineage. Anyways, this isn't rocket science. You'll probably hear about this sort of thing in the next few years. For example, some of these haplotypes did make into Iran, but for example there is zero cultural overlap between Sumer and Shahreh-Sookhte which was contemporary with Uruk and just as close as Egypt. Yet no evidence of any material cultural overlap or contact.

Administrative state...your definition still makes no sense. It ok. I made the point, no need to rehash


Regarding the theory, also you didn't catch my drift. You are not making anything up you are formulating a testable model. The power of theory is its predictions and how easy it is to falsify it. Your administrative state theory is weak (your egg example is ridiculous, come on!). It's the kind of thing that lingers for ever...as it evidently has and all it does lead to bad blood...hence your insistence on political correctness...which there is no need for it. Formulate the theory strongly and put it to rest or prove one way or another. If you think thee was a ruling elite from Mesopotamia, devise a test or forget about it. Don't sit on your laurels. What you have is nothing much and it just floats out there uselessly at this point. This is how science works. If you're just a hobby researcher, ok rest on your laurels...lol.


Skeletons. you didn't read what I wrote, thanks a lot, man! You gotta prove that ROYALTY came from elsewhere and you haven't done so. You have a puff of a suggestion, that's it. Do you know of a royal burial whose skeleton had a Caucasoid skull? Were Petrie's skeletons royal? If yes, that helps your case more than a serekh. Right now, there is still zero proof that higher tech wasn't an endogenous phenomenon.

Horus came from the south Thanos...I don't have to tell you that Iry-Hor predates all the examples you gave. What you are showing is post-conquest. Narmer has a falcon in his palette.

Like I said, you barely have a leg to stand on, but I like the theory. You are nowhere close to done, squirrel. Keep up the work.

All the best.
