The following is a link to a book written by Laird Scranton. I have not read this book but the following website has some interesting details related to the Dogon creation story and other related themes. http://www.goldenageproject.org.uk/966.html A few years ago I was posting on black planet forums and had some interaction with a brother by the name of String Theory. Since I have been having dreams lately concerning ants and spiders I decided to look deeper and found this site which gives some related information. For example, "The spider of the sene whose threads weave the 266 seeds of Amma, much as string theory tells us all matter is woven from strings." Well, I knew that the spider symbolizes feninine power according to various African traditions but did not know it specifically related to Amma. It continues, "Likewise, there seems to be a relationship between Dogon cosmological drawings and the shapes of various Egyptian glyphs, yet among the Dogon, these drawings have never been taken on the staus of an actual written language. Dada, the Dogon spider who weaves matter and whose name means "mother" in the Dogon language, exhibits many of the classical attributes of the Egyptian (and Amazigh) goddess Neith." I am also wondering if there is a similarity or correlation with the Aztec "Spider-Woman" Goddess and what this power symbolizes. What this indicates is an even older form of worship predating Ra as Neith (Net) was the Mother of Ra or "The Mother of All Creation".
