    If the ankh represents life, an inverted one should represent the. antithesis of life.

    The "Ankh" or Nwka as defined by Dr. Nana Banchie Darkwah

    1. The word "Ankh" is a mistranslated corruption of "Nwka" -- "Africans Who Wrote The Bible" by Dr. Alex Darkwah.

    2. Its meaning which is both religious and spiritual is "life". The concept behind the Nwka (e.g Ankh) is the necessary component utilized by the Ancient Afrikans of KMT in their own belief system.

    3. The etymology of the word is easily traceable to one of many languages in Ghana called Akan.

    4. The shape of this ancient KMT-ic symbol remains constant and stable whether placed upside down, rightside up or sideways ----thus its meaning remains the same. However, when the program called "Religion" was set in place and the cross was brought forward -- in symbolistic style the meaning definitely changed from life to death and punishment -- just ask Constantine...

    5. The term 'rebirth or reborne' is embraced by Christians who have no real understanding of the fact that this mindset was first created inside the KMTic belief system and that all dogma and doctrine = especially the incredible biblical text are products of KMT in a revised shape and form.

    In the Spirit of Sankokfa and Real Truth!


    ibrahim,

    Seems like Sistar Bootzey is correct, I looked at several difference sources and they all say pretty much the same:

    It was sometimes held upside down by the loop – especially in funeral rites when it suggested the shape of a key and in reality was the key which opened the gateway of the tomb into the Fields of Aalu, the realm of eternity. Sometimes the ankh is placed on the forehead, between the eyes, and then it symbolizes the duty of the adept to keep secret the mystery into which he has been initiated – it is the key which locks these secrets away from the uninitiated.

    Q. How does changing the position of an object or symbol....

    change its meaning?


    (Doing so borders near superstition)
