Just a short blog this time to note that, upon reflection, perhaps I am not as unprejudiced as I would wish to believe I am. If I DO have any remaining unjustified prejudices, please not that they are not intended consciously, but are simply reflections of a POSSIBILITY that I may not have de-programmed my psyche as much as I had previously thought.
After all, George Lucas, through the “Obi-Wan” character, told Luke that “You’re going to find that the truths which we cling to often depend greatly upon your point of view.” Socrates, in like fashion, also specified that “we don’t know as much as we think we do”.
Those points needed to be made before I candidly admit that, in any previous blogs, I have yet to review them to double-check whether I had stressed enough that any points relating to Egyptology may have had “minor” errors in the name-tags which I referenced. I am also noticing that some among the “outer edges” of Egyptologists (a.k.a. not among “main-stream” thinking of so-called “professional” academicians) are recognizing the need to shed prior prejudices from traditionally-accepted schools of thought on a great many subjects concerning history.
I needed to make this point as a practical, definitive demonstration of my own willingness to “learn from history or be doomed to repeat it”. (I have yet to discover how many lifetimes it’s taken me to get to that realization). Shabbat Shalom this Erev Shabbat (in a few hours locally, anyway), Blessed Be, etc.
