What Can We Learn from Ancient Egypt?


Worship the Sun – it’ll outlast all the other gods we have created in our own likenesses to suit our purposes.

Carve your history on stone in an arcane language. That way the narrow-minded crusaders won’t destroy it.

Forget vowels, you don’t really need them – it’s tough enough being a scribe.

Don’t let a Roman, even if he looks like Richard Burton, run your armed forces.

Build things out of really big rocks with a very wide base. Make them narrower on top. Finance them with real assets like gold. They will stand the test of time.
