Kam Ta Means Black Lands but Mystikal Blackness Too!

The basis of the name Kamta stems from the idea that the relationship between the Ba (superconscious), Sahu (subconscious) and Ab (conscious) is believed was further allegorized geographically by the Kamitic philosophers when they decided to name the northern arid region of Kamit, Lower Kamit or TASETT, which means the Red Lands and they chose to symbolize it by a red crown called the Deshret. 

While the fertile southern region of Kamit, known as Upper Kamit was called the KAMTA, which means the Black Lands referring to the fertile dark soil due to the inundation of the north-flowing Nile River.  However, the white crown of Osar called the Hedjet was used to symbolize KAMTA, thus indicating that the term doesn’t just refer to the soil of the land but is a reference to mysterious unknown.

When the white Hedjet and the red Deshret crowns are joined together, they create the double Pschent crown, symbolizing superficially the unification of both lands into one kingdom. 

A more profound perspective indicates balance between the spiritual and physical reality, and balance due to following one’s Osar instead of Set. Metaphorically speaking it can be said that the calming and cooling effect of one’s guardian angel’s wisdom, tempers the excessively passionate and destructive nature of one’s lower self, which is symbolized on the Maa Aankh.  


Hence Kamta is a pun referring to the return to the invisible and hidden spirit realm, the dream world, where Osar, our spirit guides and our benevolent ancestors reside. (For more information See Maa Aankh I, II & III in Book List 1).
