As promised, here is my latest work on the God Imn (Amun) in dedication to the late Dr. K. K. Bunseki Fu-Kiau. I hope you enjoy and I look forward to your feedback. It is 39 pages, so it may take a second to get through for those not familiar with the content.

 "The God Imn in the Kongo: A Paper in Honor of Dr. Kimbwandende kia Bunseki Fu-Kiau" by Asar Imhotep



ABSTRACT: In this essay we attempt to make a connection between the Bantu-Kongo concept of sîmbi, with that of the ancient Egyptian nTr (god) Imn. By doing a cross cultural and linguistic analysis between Central Africa and the lower Nile-Valley, we come to discover striking parallels which would suggest a common ancestral heritage. The works of the late Dr. Kimbwandende kia Bunseki Fu-Kiau provides us with the necessary cultural keys that help us to unlock many of the philosophical mysteries of ancient Egypt fossilized in the hieroglyphic writing script. We seek to demonstrate the vitality of utilizing the Bantu languages as tools for interpreting many of the obscure concepts of ancient Egypt. The works of Fu-Kiau grounds us authentically in the African world-view and the Bantu-Kongo becomes a launching pad to speculate more systematically ideas expressed in ancient Egypt. As a result of our Kongo engagement, we come to discover that Imn is still worshiped in central Africa under the name Nzambi.

    Mbote Brother Asar, 

    Thrilled and captivated by the deep efforts of your works so critical towards decoding life keys of Ancestral wisdoms, especially that of Bantu-Kongo and Ancient Egyptian origin. Was equally moved to see the "tributary graphic" I personally created on behalf of "Congo SQ West Kinship Society" originally posted on Facebook honoring our teacher the late Dr. Fu-Kiau. To see this image encapsulated inside of your works, honoring one of our foremost Scholars of African Spiritual traditions, honors our service as well --how befitting. "Blessed that be the ties that bind." Truly look forward to reading every page of your paper and shall post the site upon our networks.:)

    I am honored and humbled by your commentary and I look forward to your honest feedback on the article. Thank you for the image design. I just randomly found it on Google image search and thought it very appropriate. Yes, Fu-Kiau truly was a treasure and I hope more get to know of him through this article. I appreciate you and thank you again.
