Almost all Greek Philosophers travelled miles to the land of Kemet (today's Egypt) to acquire know.

Commonly, one can point to the famous Socretes, Plato, and Aristotle, all of whom had the foundations of their great intellectual acumen from the Ancient Kingdom of Kemet of Africa.

When Socretes was killed on an account of "Impiety" (an act of introducing or worshiping foreign Gods), it was because he had been influenced by Kemetic culture, traditions, and spirituality. This was a sign of a great threat on the lives of the Greek intellectual community since they almost have all been influenced by the same factors.

Because of this obvious fore threat, when Aristotle was summoned by King Philip II of Macedon to tutor his son Alexander the Destroyer (you can call him the Great that is your choice), he did not hesitate to move away from the Athenian noble community to the Roman Kingdom.

As a teacher, Aristotle spent lot of time explaining the knowledge and advancement that have been developed and piled up in the African Kingdom of Kemet. He also gave him insights into the military and security structures of the kingdom since Aristotle was so familiar of the kingdom.

It, therefore, came as no surprising that, when Alexander rose to the highest rank of the military, he made Kemet (Egypt) his number 1 target to conquer and bring the vast wealth of the kingdom under roman's control.

In the end, Alexander, presented some essential books and records of Knowledge he took from Africa to an old Aristotle as a sign of gratitude and appreciation.

The next time you think about Africa, think about the original home of Knowledge, wisdom, and innovation.
