Hello R Avry Wilson; you wrote: ”Lastly, there is a massive obstacle to the idea Mesopotamians gave rise to ancient Egypt. It is impossible to separate it from the culture who had it well established in the 4th Millennium: cuneiform. People do not 'move in' without their language and writing system. And it simply is _no where_ to be seen in ancient Egypt until long after the old Kingdom, and even then is not a state-managing script.”

Your comments dovetail nicely with an article on today’s News Desk: 5,000-Year-Old 'Billboard' of Hieroglyphs Contains a Cosmic Message.





”The four early hieroglyphic signs were carved around 3250 B.C. …

One of the signs shows a bull's head on a short pole, a symbol found at other Egyptian sites. "The bull's head appears to be a symbol of royal power during the formative phases of the Egyptian state,"…

The other three signs show two storks, back-to-back, with a bald ibis bird in between them. The stork-ibis-stork arrangement suggests that those three signs are making a "statement about the cosmos through the solar cycle,"…similar arrangements of symbols can be seen at other Egyptian sites.

Together, the four symbols were likely "an expression of royal authority over the ordered cosmos,"…”


These examples of 4th millennium B.C. proto-hieroglyphs are not only symbolically attested throughout pre-dynastic and Pharaonic Egyptian history, but the cohesion of the proto-religious cosmic concepts of Ma’at are also present.
