Kemet Story: Eden

The Kemet Story is a collection of stories about the history of Kemet, the most technologically advanced country in the world. These documents are related to Kemet and me. A friend once told me, "memory was God's greatest gift. It allows us to learn and to never forget the people we met along the way." I feel a need to tell these tales in the hope the world will remember that we were here.

In Ancient Kemet, Gods, Kings, and astral plane of existence captivated the hearts and minds of the Afri(s). So much that these figures became within religion, literature and culture in Kemet.

One of the most beloved places of the afterlife is Eden. Eden is a majestic, enormous hall located in heaven, resided over by the warrior guardian Chinweike; the greatest warrior ever to live and the general of the Lion God.

Eden is a separation from heaven and its only reserved for the greatest warriors and leaders of their era. Chosen by Chinweike, all that died in combat travel to Eden upon death, led by residences of Eden, where they’re judged by Chinweike. The rejected go either to Aaru (heaven) or The Great Damnation (hell). If accepted into Eden, the dead join the masses of those who have died in combat known as the Elite Guard, as well as various legendary heroes and kings, as they prepare to aid Chinweike against Seth during the events of "The Great Crisis".
Before the hall stands the golden gates, attached at the center is a golden statue of a lion’s head.

In the modern era, space is often referred as Eden. Many believe Afri(s) believe that the attendance of Eden are the stars in the night sky, and their goal is to watch over the living and guide their leaders.

Eden is attested throughout literature and till this day is what every heroic figure and monarch longs to be part of Eden has inspired various works of art, publication titles, popular culture references, and has become a term synonymous with a martial (or otherwise) hall of the chosen dead.

The following is a dying warrior in the 10th century during the Battle of Ode.
They fight on.
Steel versus steel, flesh versus flesh
Heart versus heart
I’ve lost a lot of blood too much to live
A well place strike to abdomen and
I’m on my way to meet my creator
If I’m to die then let it be like this
A warrior, a soldier on the battlefield
Surrounded by fire, brimstone, and blood
With a bronze sword in my left hand and
A battle axe in my right
Courage in my heart
An invitation into Eden in my soul
Yes, the golden gates only wait for the brave and strong
The place where every warrior wants to be when their end arrives
Fighting along Chinweike and the great leaders and warriors of the past
Against Seth and his minions.
What a great adventure that would be
To never die and live among the stars of above
What more could a warrior ask for.

The End
