"The Mother of the World" in Second Life
Kemet is the ancient name of Egypt. "The Mother of the World", as the Arabs call it - 10,000 years of history, eternally thriving kingdom of Pharaohs on the Nile.
It quickly caught the attention of the circle of Egyptian friends in SL, when we started building the temple of Dayr al-Bahri in 2016. And very soon we found many good friends among them.
We spent a lot of time with each other, regularly visiting and had a lot of fun together. And over time, the idea arose in me to try something new that had never happened before in Second Life.
I wanted to try - in the spirit of the first pharaohs - to unite the fragmented empire on the Nile river again. Durable and firm for all time. To the benefit of all, to share the resources in mutual give and take.
Because together we are stronger than in the competition - that was my idea and that was the core of the Maat, of the old world order of ancient Egypt.
"Give everyone the space they need, and unite them all under the roof of a bigger house (Per-aa [means House-big] = Pharaa = Pharaoh) on which they can live henceforth in eternal harmony with the world."
That's how the idea of Kemet came into being - the idea of the alliance of all places in Second Life that have Egypt as topic.
And as in the real world, Kemet exists in different provinces in Second Life as well. Each of them is independent in their field. Each of them is ruled by their own ruler. Each of them is different. A dwelling place of the gods, or a dwelling place of the people, a place of the dead on the west bank of the Nile or a place of fun and love and lust for the living.
Yet they all together form the greatest empire under the sun, that people have ever seen. Egypt - The Mother of World - whose beautiful provinces you can find here.
Experience a distant yet well-known world, return home in the lap of our mother.

"Witnesses of a great history" - former provinces of Kemet
Kemet, "Black Land", legendary empire on the Nile. It has been feeding people for thousands of years, delighting the world with the great achievements of its inhabitants, growing and flourishing since time immemorial, guardian and follower of the divine world order Maat. The land of the pyramids and pharaohs, full of signs of eternity, but it has never been unchangeable.
And so also Second Life is full of witnesses to the great history of Kemet from times long past. Buried deep in the sand of time, long gone in the real world, the memory of all these old sites, great in their time, formerly powerful and beautiful witnesses of the artistry of their inhabitants, and yet born and died in the eternal circle of becoming and passing away.
Preserved here as a last echo of the past for future generations. May everyone remember forever who we are following. May we all preserve the inheritance and memory for all time, against the final death of oblivion.
