Discovering the World before this World.

from Nas (Ft. Damian Marley) – Patience (Sabali) Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Discovering “the old World”, history.

There’s a belief (and some fairly convincing evidence) that there was a period of human civilization predating our oldest known civilizations, and that a great cataclysm wiped out a vast majority of the population at that time. This world community was thought to possess superior mental ability, and were responsible for the construction of many ancient sites (including the Pyramids of Giza; which the Egyptians found and worshipped, not completely aware of their actual purpose or signifigance). These pre-historic cultures supposedly predated not only the Egyptians, but also the Sumerians, and are believed to be the basis for the Sumerian pantheon of gods.

There has been a movement by people in places of power to supress evidence of this ancient societies, and to keep our amazing potential for self-thought and self-governance at bay. Knowledge of the ancient ways woud supposedly eradicate any need for governments. But more evidence is leaking out to the public as the years wear on.

Food for thought…
