    Default (Beta) Ancient Egypt

    Here is the source of my blogpost:

    The Egyptian Empire was a general public that started around 3150 BCE and finished around 20 BC when it was attacked by the Roman Empire. It developed along the River Nile and was at its most effective in the second thousand years BC. Its territory went from the Nile delta to Nubia, a kingdom which today is generally in the Sudan. For the greater part of its history, Egypt was prosperous, since the water from the Nile ensured that the Egyptians would have great harvests. Yields were become after the Nile surge water went down. The Egyptians made another method for composing utilizing symbolic representations, fabricated colossal sanctuaries and tombs, exchanging with different territories, and had a capable armed force. Their religion had numerous divine beings, and its clerics were capable and rich. Their rulers, called Pharaohs, were thought to be near the divine beings.

    Ancient Egypt was an excellent example of a Beta civilization in the fact that there existed pharaohs that were the supreme ruler of the state and a living God that had the responsibilities of a king or queen. The pharaoh was also the commander of the army and During the period of the Bronze Age in Egypt, the people of the civilization had what had resulted from this type of leadership lead to the whole society of Egypt to become very structured. They had a command economy, the state tried to take care of everyone by storing food in case of emergencies and taxing individuals to return the products of their labor to the monarchs of the state. One of the primary reasons that Ancient Egypt was a Beta civilization was their consciousness of civilization in the fact that they developed a unique and collective sense of mission. Consequently, the Egyptians maintained this society for thousands of years because the civilians were content with the idea that the pharaoh was a divine and magnificent ruler that communicates with the gods and defends the civilization from outside enemies.

    The religion of the Egyptian state was very complex, where they had esoteric scripts and texts and it is made very clear without any sort of ambiguity or doubt in the existence of an afterlife. The focus on E+T promoted the theocratic spread of piety that generated a sense of higher meaning and spirituality among the civilians which found this ideological way of thinking to be inspiring. There is also a focus on F+L in the hierarchical organization of leaders and subordinates in a way that reflected a structured early monarchy that could adapt to the limitation of resources and expanding military strength to fend off potential enemies to protect the people. Conclusively, what was previously stated about Egypt was similar to Mesopotamia (which had originally started as an Alpha culture and progressively became more Beta as Hammurabi and Nebuchadnezzar II came into power) that branched out into Beta civilizations; the Sumerians, the Assyrians and the Babylonians that had these qualities manifest in similar ways.

    Ancient Egypt always seemed very EIE to me, with its artwork which frequently portrays crowds of people engaging in ceremonial activities, or how the Egyptians would come together to build mega-projects with very spiritual underpinnnings. I've read a lot about the ancient world, and I suspect life in ancient Egypt had more of a spiritual and mystical component flowing through it than most other ancient societies. In other societies, gods were like tools you prayed to in hopes of exploiting favor out of them. That sort of thing went on in Egypt also, but the Egyptian people seemed more cognizant of their own personal role in the spiritual life of the cosmos, I'm not really sure how to describe it in a short space.
