Ankh: African Origin of Electromagnetism based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
A couple of brothers helped me to understand how heart broken the men of the Black diaspora are and how the biased attitude of the author brings them solace. I could have done without the bias comments personally. However, with a little referencing I found the technological devices concisely explained. The atmospheric potential difference between the sky and the ground, that creates thunder storms, is the power source for the Ark discussed in the Old Testament. The djed column is a battery and the ankh is the basic circuit used to produce electricity from a changing magnetic field. There's not really a whole lot to explain unless one expects the author to teach basic electronics in order for the novice to grasp the concepts presented in the book. It cost me around $20k to learn basic electronics so I think that is asking a bit much of the author.
Overall, a worthwhile read. If nothing else, this book gets you to think outside the box a bit and consider the authors explanation as a good starting point. About the first 2/3 of the book is pretty straight forward, and leaves the realm of speculation behind, and presents things with a slight bias, but overall good deal of impartiality. Once that point is crossed, however, the book seems to drastically take a turn to a underlying personal bias of the author. Overall, the book really makes one consider the possibilities that the author presents, and even begins to explain some of the technologies that have been overlooked in Egypt are open and in plain sight. However, there is a great deal of detail lacking in many of the explanations, and leaves the reader to surmise that the author is speculating, despite wording to the contrary. There seems to be a good use of "jargon" pertaining to each of the technological topics, but no real understanding or explanation of what the jargon means, nor how it applies to the authors comments. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone that has a passing interest in the areas of Egyptian Mysticism, forgotten and lost technologies, and for those that just "know" that something is not being shared from the Egyptian historians. However, I would caution that the author is pretty blatant about their biases and predisposition to some of the topics, and as such, combines speculation with researched fact. It can be a bit difficult at times to weed the two apart. But a worthwhile investment, and guaranteed that there will be something positive and enlightening that the reader takes away from this book.
