Like Greeks in Egypt, learning somethin deep from they teachers
Nas returns to the Egyptian theme of this album, and at the same time touches upon the popular theme of Africa as the font of modern knowledge.
A very smart line. There is a theory that says that the Greek mythology was from the Egyptian beliefs.
“The origins of Greek mythology remain a fascinating and open question. Exampels of this is Pythagoras and other Greek mathematicians and philosophers who visited Egypt often and learned mathematics from Egyptian teachers. Another example is Euclid "The father of geometry” who actually lived in Egypt.In antiquity, historians such as Herodotus theorized that the Greek gods had been stolen directly from the Egyptians.“
-This is also a reference to Alexander the Great who conquered Egypt and constructed a vast empire.He was know to mix cultures in his empire .That’s why Nas say “
Learning something deep from they teachers” saying that Alexander used the invention and learned from the Egyptian.
