Emergence of Greek Philosophy
We are told that philosophy started from among the ancient Greeks. What we are told is that, once upon a time, Europe suddenly witnessed the spontaneous rise of the Greek civilisation. We are then told that it was the philosophers among the Greek who brought about the spontaneous rise of Greece into a world civilisation. It was these Greek philosophers, we are told, who laid the basis of modern Western civilisation.
We are told that it was when the ancient Greeks started philosophy that they laid foundations of Western culture itself on solid footings. So, that was ah hallmark phase in the beginning of Western civilisation. They are telling us that the origin of Western civilisation traces back to ancient. They said the Greeks were the most civilised people of their times.
We are told that the Greek society became comfortable enough to produce leisurely people who had the time to sit down and engage in freethinking which eventually led to the rise of organised philosophy that became the basis of the rise of the Greek civilisation.
We are told that these people were rich enough to merely sit down in the gardens of their estates and engage in nothing but thinking and philosophising. They had all the time to think about everything. They were then able to come up with new ideas and new ways of doing everything. That, we are told, was the origin of philosophy in ancient Greece.
We are told that the first person to become a philosopher as such was a Greek citizen called Thales. We are told that Thales was the first Greek philosopher. They said Thales came from the Greek island of Miletus. They said Thales formed a school of thinkers and philosophers. These gave rise to the class of Greeks known as the Milesian philosophers.
We are told that after the Milesian philosophers many other schools and classes of philosophers appeared in ancient Greece. Many of these latter philosophers were in the Greek mainland with most of them concentrated in Athens itself, the capital city of Greece.
But there are a lot of problems and inconsistencies associated with the simple model of the origin of philosophy as presented to us in the preceding paragraphs. These include the fact that this simple model cannot explain away the fact that it is virtually impossible for the Greek civilisation to have emerged on its own so spontaneously.
Then, of course, there is also the problem of all the first philosophers being identified only among the Greeks. Why is it that it is only among the Greeks that we see the philosophers. It is quite silly to keep on insisting that only the Greeks could have produced the philosophers and nobody else.
Now then, even though many of these pioneer philosophers were not resident in Greece, they were still referred to as Greek philosophers. We see, for instance, that the first of these philosophers were actually the Milesian philosophers who were, in the first place, not even resident in Greece – the island of Miletus being located between southern Europe and North Africa on the Aegean. Then we saw others of these so-called Greek philosophers in several colonies all over North Africa. And we see these so-called Greek philosophers even as far afield as in Turkey.
This apparent contradiction is explained away by the claim that the Greeks had colonies planted in all parts of the civilised world in those days. So, it was in these Greek colonies that we see the appearance of these philosophers in all parts of the civilised world in those days. That is what we are being told and made to believe.
Spontaneous Appearance of Greek Philosophy
The problem, however, is that the more we investigate the matter the more we realise that it is impossible for philosophy to have suddenly appeared among the Greeks around the 6th century B.C. that we are told philosophy appeared among the Greeks.
The issue is that if philosophy did appeared among the Greeks around the 6th century B.C., then the Greeks need to have been a highly civilised people long before then. But the truth of the matter is that by that very 6th century B.C. the Greeks were barely a civilised people capable of spontaneously developing the advanced form of philosophy that is attributed to them today by Western scholarship. The truth is that the Greeks were more or less uncivilised barbarians around the 6th century or thereabouts.
And now we are being told that these uncivilised, barbarian Greeks suddenly woke up one day and spontaneously initiated philosophy which subsequently became the foundation of the entire Western civilisation that we live in today. This theory is just not true and it is not tenable because there are a lot of problems and inconsistencies associated with this theory.
And one of the biggest problems and inconsistency associated with this theory of a spontaneous initiation of philosophy by the ancient Greeks is the fact that prior to the emergence of the Greek civilisation, around that same 6th century B.C., we see a highly advanced and superior civilisation just across the Mediterranean in the form of the ancient Egyptian civilisation. In fact even Western scholarship admits that the powerful Egyptian civilisation, that overshadowed the Greek civilisation in everything, lasted till 30 B.C. – well nigh unto the last days of the Greek civilisation itself.
What we see here is that the Greek civilisation was nothing but an extension, across the Mediterranean and the Aegean, of the overwhelming Egyptian civilisation. The Greeks got their civilisation, their culture, their religion from the ancient Egyptians. The Greeks got philosophy from the ancient Egyptians. Philosophy did not originated spontaneously among the Greeks, the Greeks simply adopted philosophy, a very ancient Black African Negro religion, from the ancient Egyptians.
So, it is not true that the Greeks just woke up one day and invented philosophy. The Greeks actually got philosophy from the ancient Egyptians. The truth is that everything we saw with the ancient Greeks – their civilisation, their culture, their architecture, their political systems, their mythology, their philosophy, everything – they got from the ancient Egyptians.
The Philosophers were Black Africans
Further investigations readily reveal the fact that it was not just philosophy that the Greeks got from the ancient Egyptians, the Greeks also got their philosophers from the ancient Egyptians. In other words the so-called Greek philosophers were not Greeks at all, they were Black African Negro philosophers. All the so-called Greek philosophers mentioned by the Greeks were actually Black African Negroes. Thales, the Milesian philosophers, the Natural philosophers, Plato, Aristotle, Socrates – all the so-called Greek philosophers – all of them were Black African Negro philosophers who were born, lived, flourished and died in the heart of Black Negro Africa hundreds of thousands of years before the emergence of the Greek civilisation in the third millennium B.C.
The so-called Greek philosophers were not Greeks, they were Black African Negroes. The point here is that the story of philosophy and the story of the philosophers that we found among the Greeks were not of Greek origins. The Greeks got these stories from the ancient Egyptians. In other words there was no philosophy and there were no philosophers in ancient Greeks. There were only stories about philosophy and the philosophers among the ancient Greeks. And the ancient Greeks got these stories about philosophy and the philosophers from their ancient Egyptian overlords.
The stories about Thales, Plato, Aristotle, Socrates, and all those other philosophers that the ancient Greeks told us about, were stories that the ancient Greeks themselves got and adopted from the ancient Egyptians. So, Thales, Plato, Aristotle, Socrates, and all the other so-called Greek Philosophers were never Greeks and did not ever lived in or even visited Greece. As a matter of fact these philosophers lived and died in the heart of Black Negro Africa long before the emergence of the Greek civilisation. The era of the philosophers was long gone before there was anything like a Greek civilisation.
When the ancient Greeks originally talked about philosophy and the philosophers they were not telling us that philosophy or the philosophers were Greeks. They were telling were telling us the story of philosophy and the philosophers that they heard about from the ancient Egyptians. It was much later, in relatively recent times, that mischievous Western scholarship disguised philosophy and the philosophers into Greek phenomena.
The philosophers were certainly not Greeks. A careful and analytical study of the available information on each of the so-called Greek philosophers readily demonstrates the fact that they were in fact not Greek philosophers at all. A careful study of the stories we have on Plato, Aristotle, Socrates, etc, expose a lot of inconsistencies that can only be resolved by admitting the fact that they were not Greeks but were black African Negroes.
Furthermore, we should note the fact that the ancient philosophers were not only not Greeks, they were also not ancient Egyptians – they were Black African Negroes who were born, lived, flourished and died here in the heart of Black Negro Africa, in Middle Africa, mostly around the very place we refer to as West Africa and particularly Nigeria today.
So, philosophy was a West African affair and the ancient philosophers were actually Black African Negro West Africans who were born, lived, flourished and died here in West Africa hundreds of thousands of years ago.
It was from here in West Africa, the homeland of the ancient philosophers, that the story of philosophy and the philosophers spread northward to ancient Egypt where it eventually crossed the Mediterranean to the ancient Greeks.
The Greeks Didn’t Know Plato
The truth of the matter is that the Greeks knew virtually nothing true about Plato. Apart from a few sentences made by Aristotle regarding Plato, there is no any other historical or documented evidence of Plato having ever been a real historical figure that ever existed.
But Western scholarship will not let us know this fact. Instead Western scholars will go ahead to invent all manners and sorts of detailed stories about Plato. Meanwhile only one person, Aristotle, ever mentioned Plato. And then the problem is that even the very existence of Aristotle himself as a true historical figure is highly dubitable. So, how can an Aristotle, whose very existence is dubitable, become the only source of information on a personality so important to Western tradition as Plato?
And the entire world is now made to believe that Plato existed for real when the only person who ever told us about Plato is an Aristotle whose own existence is unprovable?
The implication here is that ancient Greek sources cannot be used to irrefutably prove that Plato once existed as a true historical figure. The ancient Greeks just didn’t know anything about Plato.
Did Plato Ever Exist?
You know the inconsistencies in the stories regarding all these so-called Greek philosophers are such that one may conclude that the Greek philosophers did not exist at all and may have been the figment of some fiction writer’s imagination.
Bernard Shaw, the world renowned British thinker, did concluded, after all the research he could on Plato, concluded that Plato never existed in the first place. And considering the inconsistencies of the available ancient Greek information on Plato, nobody can disprove or refute Bernard Shaw. The only source of information on Plato is Aristotle. Apart from Aristotle, nobody ever mentioned Plato in the days if the ancient Greeks.
So, with all the volumes upon volumes of books that are being written on Plato today, the only person among the ancient Greek writers that ever told us about Plato was Aristotle. All the tomes and libraries of information on Plato in Western scholarship today originated from the mention of Plato by just one single person, namely, Aristotle.
The question that begs for answer here is: what if Aristotle was the one who invented Plato? The probability that Plato was an invention is very tenable if we consider the fact that Aristotle himself seem to be the invention of another creative writer. There is no any irrefutable evidence on ground to prove that Aristotle was once a historical figure who did exist on the face of the earth.
It is most probable that somebody, or some people, invented Aristotle. So, these same person or people might have used Aristotle to invent Plato.
When did Plato Lived?
From the writings of Aristotle we may be able to date the time that Plato is supposed to have lived and flourished to somewhere between the 6th to the 3rd centuries B.C. But the problem is that no Greek writer within this time range ever made mentioned of Plato and this fact can only be explained away by admitting that Plato simply did not exist.
But if Plato did exist, then he must have lived or die long before or long after the time that Aristotle assigned to him. If that is the case, then we can place Plato anywhere along a time frame that may be more provable. This means that Plato might not have lived around the circa 500 B.C. range that Western scholarship does today.
That the life and times of Plato are placed around 6th – 3rd centuries B.C. range derives from the fact that Aristotle claimed, through his writings, that Plato was his teacher. And, as is generally assumed by Western scholarship, Aristotle lived around the 4th century B.C.
The only problem here is that, if after investigating Aristotle himself and we found out that he, Aristotle himself, is an invention of some anonymous writers, then, and if Plato ever existed at all, then we will not have to confine the time of his existence to that of an Aristotle who might never have existed at all in the first place. It is more or less like the writer who invented Aristotle, and who used Aristotle to mention Plato, was totally ignorant of the time that Plato actually lived or flourished. This is because the 6th to 3rd centuries B.C. that this anonymous writer, through the mouth of his Aristotle invention, assigned to the time of Plato is just not tenable.
We are told that Aristotle was a teacher to Alexander the Great. But Alexander the Great never existed! This, more than anything else, shattered the existence of Aristotle into a big question mark.
Who Is Plato?
What we are told about Plato is that he was among the first people to establish Greek Philosophy into the world phenomenon that it is today. We are told that Plato lived some three or so thousand years ago. That is roughly just before the advent of the Christian Era. We are also told that Plato was born in Athens which was a leading Greek city state in those days and which eventually became the world headquarters of Greek Philosophy.
Western scholarship is also of the view that Plato had one of the greatest and a most enduring influence on Greek and Western Philosophy in general. That Plato’s influence on Greek Philosophy played a leading role in the foundation of Western Civilisation as an advance civilisation.
We are also told that Plato contributed in no small measure to the worldwide spread of Greek Philosophy and its subsequently becoming the basis and foundation of Western Civilisation.
That is the conventional Western scholarship that we see on Plato in encyclopaedias, textbooks and other sources of Western scholarship. This is what we learn about Plato noteworthy role in the origin of Greek Philosophy and Western Civilisation in general. We learn that the origin of both Greek Philosophy and Western Civilisation by and large traces back to Plato.
But the truth of the matter is that the more this conventional information on Plato is studied in a critical analysis manner the more serious research workers see serious faults with this conventional information on Plato as presented by Western scholarship.
First and foremost intensive research efforts have already demonstrated that the so-called ‘Greek’ Philosophy was, after all, not founded or invented by the Greeks. The Greeks were not the first people to engage in or practise Philosophy. Philosophy is not of Greek origins. A lot of scholars from all parts of the world have already documented this fact in their various books.
It is now a unanimously accepted fact among academicians and research workers all over the world that the Greeks were not the people who founded or invented Philosophy. World scholars have demonstrated that the Greeks actually adopted Philosophy from other peoples. Now it has been conclusively proven that the Greeks adopted Philosophy from the North Africans – particularly from the ancient Egyptians and the ancient Libyans both whom were Black African Negro civilisations situated in North Africa. While Libya was to the west, Egypt was to the east.
Research workers have been able most especially demonstrated that ancient Egypt was one of the main places from which Philosophy spread from the Black African Negroes to the ancient Greeks. It was from the ancient Egyptians that the Greeks got and adopted Philosophy.
Now that the world is already aware that the Greeks got Philosophy from the Black African Negroes, then it is evident that Philosophy predated the rise of Greek civilisation. Philosophy was practised among the Black African Negroes in the interior of the African continent for hundreds of thousands of years before the rise of the White races and the resultant emergence of the Aegean and Greek civilisations.
Knowing that Philosophy is actually older than the Greek civilisation the first next thing that will come to one’s mind will be the realisation that Plato, who is among the pioneers of Philosophy, must have lived and died several hundreds of thousands of years before the rise of Greek civilisation. Plato must, then, have not been a Greek; Plato must have been a Black African Negro who must have been born, lived, flourished and died in the interior of Black Negro Africa.
There is no way Plato could have been a Greek if he is among the founding pioneers of Philosophy and if Philosophy originated in the interior of Black Negro Africa and is actually older than the Greek civilisation by hundreds of thousands of years.
We will have to trace the true and original identity of Plato then back to the interior of Black Negro Africa; to Middle Africa, that is, to the West, Central and East Africa regions because that is where Philosophy originated.
Since Plato is a pioneer founder of Philosophy, and since we knew that Philosophy flourished in the interior of Black Negro Africa hundreds of thousands of years ago, then it is evident that Plato did not lived some mere three thousand years ago. Plato must have lived several hundreds of thousands of years ago in the heart of Black Negro Africa.
There are a lot of evidences and proofs to the effect that Plato was actually a Black African Negro. He was a philosopher-prophet who was born, lived, flourished and died in Middle Africa hundreds of thousands of years ago.
The Name ‘Plato’
We will start with the name ‘Plato’ itself. A critical look at the name ‘Plato’ readily shows that the name is actually a Black African Negro name.
‘Plato’ is actually the Greek corruption of a much older and ancient African term. ‘Plato’ is derived from the ancient Black African Negro word ‘Farata’ which is itself originally derived from ‘Fara’ – a very ancient Black African Negro name.
Fara was the name of a very ancient Black African Negro religion. It was a religion that flourished in Black Negro Africa a very long time ago.
As a matter of a prophet was known in ancient Africa as ‘Afara’ or ‘Afra’ and Afra has been identified as one of the greatest prophets ever to appear on this planet.
In fact Africans used to be known as ‘Fara-ka’ or ‘Faraka’ which became ‘Afaraka’ from which the Latin form ‘Afraka’ or ‘Afrika’ was derived. Of course our English ‘Africa’ is derived from the Latin ‘Afrika’.
As a matter of fact ‘Fara’ used to be the ubiquitous name of the entire African continent, African people and the African world religion of very ancient times. As a matter of fact the very name ‘Africa’ is itself a Latin corruption of the original Black African Negro national name ‘Fara-ka’. Africa is progressively derived from Afrik, Afarak, Afaraka and, eventually, Faraka.
It is in the form of its mirror-image ‘Kafara’ that the name ‘Faraka’ has survived in a variety of forms the negative ones including title of ‘Kafir’ or ‘Kufur’ and the positive ones including ‘Ghafara’, etc.
‘Plato’ is phonetically the same as ‘Frato’ or ‘Farata’ which was the name with which Black African Negro sages were referred to in very ancient times. Also the royalty, religious prophets, philosophers and every prominent personality from Black Negro Africa used to be addressed as Farata. So, Farata used to be the name of Black African Negro personages.
Farata survived in Arab traditions, and even in the Qur’an, as ‘Ifrit’ in reference to a mighty nation of ancient Black African Negroes who were so great that the Arabs simply thought of them as being genies because of their super-human powers and abilities.
The Farata were an entire civilisation of a very mighty people who once lived in Africa. It was their name that survived into Arabian mythology as a race of superhuman genies. This is because the Faraka were so great the Arabs couldn’t believe that the Faraka were human beings.
To this very day Arabian refer to a race of the Jinns as Ifrits. We see in the stories of the Arabian Nights collection of the days of Caliph Harun ar-Rashid for instance that the giants, actually superhuman beings, were referred to as the Ifrits.
The implication here is that the Greek corruption of Farata is nothing but a Greek reference to that same almighty nation of Black African Negro people that are known to the Arabs as the Ifrits. The civilisation of these Farata Black African Negro superhumans flourished and disappeared a long time, hundreds of thousands of years, before the time of the rise of the Greek civilisation.
Looking at the names Fara and Plato from another dimension we see that ‘Bara’ is simply a dialectal variant of ‘Fara’. In other words ‘Bara’ and ‘Fara’ are one and the same name.
The same religion of Fara that flourished in Africa a long time ago was also known as Bara because ‘Fara’ and ‘Bara’ are one and the same word.
The followers of the religion of ‘Bara’ were also known as the ‘Barama’. But then we readily see variants of this name ‘Barama’ in all the religious literatures of the world variously in the form of ‘Brahma’, ‘Brahmin’, ‘Abram’, ‘Abraham’, ‘Ibrahim’, etc, etc.
The final implication here is that the same person that the Semitic religions referred to as Abram, Abraham or Ibrahim is the same person that the Hindus refer to as ‘Brahma’ or ‘Brahmin’ and is the same person the ancient Greeks referred to as ‘Plato’.
It was the non-Semitic aspects the story of Prophet Abraham or Ibrahim, that survived among the ancient Greeks in the form of the story of Plato. Abraham or Prophet Ibrahim is the same person as Plato. And he was a Black African Negro.
So Plato, or Abraham, was not even a Greek in the first place. The nonsense they tell us about Plato having lived some 500 B.C. or some two thousand five hundred years ago just doesn’t hold any water at all. Plato, Abraham or Prophet Ibrahim, lived hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of years ago.
And Plato was a Black African Negro who was born, lived, flourished and died here in West Africa in the heart of Black Negro Africa hundreds of thousands of years ago.
It is the story of Abraham or Prophet Ibrahim that have survived among the Greeks as the story of Plato. So, all the lies that the latter Greeks came and told us about Plato are just not true. The books attributed to Plato today were not written by him. After all Plato lived and died during the preliterate era of orality when humanity have not yet adopted reading and writing as a means of communication.
The Republic was not written by Plato. Some crooks must have written that work and attributed it to Plato.
Plato was a Black African Negro
Fara was the sociocultural and religious identity of Black Negro Africa hundreds of thousands of years ago. ‘Fara-ta’ simply means ‘The African’. And it was the very ancient Black African Negro socio-religious title of ‘Farata’ that the Greek dialect variantly pronounced as ‘Frato’ or ‘Plato’.
The implication here is that ‘Farata’ or ‘Plato’ was actually a title and not a proper noun. The individual Philosopher-prophet who is known to us today through Greek philosophical traditions as ‘Plato’ must have had is personal and proper name which is today lost to history. It was because of the loss of his name that he was simply referred to as ‘Farata’ or ‘Plato’ or ‘The African’ because he was saliently a Black African Negro.
‘Plato’ therefore simply means ‘The African’. It is therefore evident even from the name of Plato that he was a Black African Negro who lived several millennia or a million years ago and not a Greek who lived just three thousand years ago. ‘Plato’ is in truth not a Greek name; it is merely the Greek corruption of a very ancient African term.
‘Plato’ is not a Greek name. So, Plato could not have been a Greek in the first place. A pointer in this direction is the fact all those Greek writers and scholars who were reputed to have been contemporaneous with Plato did not mentioned Plato’s name. They were not aware of his existence. Plato was supposed to have lived some 500 or so B.C. But all the classical Greek writers and philosophers of that era did not mention Plato or acknowledge the existence of a personage of that nature.
And, apart from Aristotle, even those Greek writers and philosophers who came after Plato did not know or mentioned Plato’s name.
The bottom line here is that Plato might have as well have been an invention by Aristotle or someone else. There was nobody like Plato in the days of the ancient Greek civilisation. And this takes us back to the fact that the Greeks actually got the story of philosophy and the philosophers from the ancient Egyptians and the Black African Negroes in general. The ancient Greeks obviously got the name and the story of Plato from the ancient Egyptians.
That the ancient Greeks got the name and story of Plato from the ancient Egyptians immediately explains the etymology of the name ‘Plato’. As we have explained at length in a previous chapter, the name ‘Plato’ is the Greek corruption of the original Black African Negro ‘Farata’ which simply and directly means ‘The Black African’.
That even the ancient Greeks will refer to this man as ‘The Black African’ simply means that the ancient Greeks were emphatically talking about an ancient Black African Negro philosopher whenever they mention Plato and that they were not referring to a Greek Plato. The point here is that Plato might not have, after all, been a Greek.
Even in the works of Aristotle, the Plato who was mentioned was not a Greek. Aristotle’s Plato was not a direct, personal teacher to Aristotle; the Plato of Aristotle did not lived during the time of Aristotle and he was certainly not Greek. The Plato mentioned by Aristotle was a black African Negro philosopher who lived hundreds of thousands of years before the time of Aristotle.
Plato was a Religious Prophet
In the Republic Plato categorically condemned both atheism and materialism.
So many works are being attributed to Plat today, but the truth is that Plato lived in the preliterate age when there was no writing. Plato lived in the days before mankind adopted writing and reading as a form of communication. So, Plato is definitely not the author of all the written works attributed to him today.
Moreover most of the written words attributed to Plato today are actually excepts Western scholarship culled from the works of Aristotle. It is said that the works actually penned down by Plato are lost to humanity today except for the fragmentary remnants that we see quoted in the works of Aristotle.
So, in the first place even Western scholarship admits the fact that the works of Plato virtually do not exist and that the works attributed to Plato today might as well be fictitious interpolations attributed to him by Aristotle or someone else.
Aristotle claimed to be quoting from the books written by Plato. Sometimes we have an entire chapter attributed to Plato in the name of being culled from the extinct work of Plato.
However the fact remains that the time during which Plato lived, flourished and died there was nothing like writing or reading. In the days of Plato, hundreds of thousands of years ago, people were not reading or writing. Plato lived in the preliterate age when humanity have not adopted reading and writing as a means of communication yet. So, Plato could not have written a book in the first place. So, these written works being attributed to Plato today were not written by Plato. And even the ideology and philosophy we see in the works attributed to Plato today were not Plato’s ideas or philosophy.
The writings and philosophy attributed to Plato by Aristotle are just not Plato’s writings and philosophy. Plato is not the author of the Republic and neither is Plato the author of the philosophy contained in the Republic.
It is evident that the works and philosophy that are attributed to Plato today were actually written by some faceless classical writers who then attributed the works to Plato and Aristotle. It was common in classical and ancient times to write a book and then to attribute the authorship to a famous writer or author in order to promote the work. Even the works attributed to Aristotle, from which the supposed excerpts from Plato’s lost works are interpolated, were also not written by Aristotle. These works were written by anonymous authors who hide behind big names like ‘Aristotle’, ‘Plato’, etc, etc, to sell their works.
This whole situation looks very well like some faceless author or authors sat down and wrote a fiction which they attributed to Aristotle, and in which they invented Plato, and today Western scholarship is forcing us to take this faction, this novel, as a documentary evidence on which Western philosophy is built.
Western scholarship has in a sense succeeded in coming up with an entire philosophical system, so called Platonic philosophy, which is in fact a lie.
Plato did not write a book and therefore the philosophy of Platonism that is attributed to him through these dubious works attributed to him cannot be true his philosophy. Platonism is not the philosophy of Plato. It was not Plato that taught, preached or said all those things that are being attributed to him today. But it was out of all these things that Plato didn’t say or write that the philosophy of Platonism, attributed to Plato today, was developed.
But then entire corpus of Western philosophy today is more or less nothing but the extended extrapolation of Platonism. The whole of Western philosophy is more or less built on Platonism. But Platonism is an invention that has nothing to do with the true Plato, that is if Plato ever existed at all. So, Western philosophy is built on a Platonism that is after all a fiction.
The entire Western philosophy that was developed out of the works attributed to Plato is, accordingly, not Plato’s philosophy. This is because the works attributed to Plato, from which this philosophy was derived, were not Plato’s works.
It is quite possible that there was a true and historical Plato – in the form of Abraham, Prophet Ibrahim, Brahmin, Pharaoh, Fir’aun, Afra, etc – who was a Black African Negro who did lived here in the heart of Black Negro Africa hundreds of thousands, if not millions of years, before the time of the ancient Greeks. But the teachings, philosophy and religion of that true Plato was lost to the Greeks, considering the long period of time that separated him and the ancient Greek civilisation, and either the ancient Greeks or somebody else went and invented a new philosophy, through the equally fictional works of Aristotle, and then attributed this new philosophy to Plato. And this unfortunate turn of events took place in such a manner that by the end of the day an entire civilisation, that is Western civilisation, has been built on this lie of a philosophy called Platonism.
Plato was Preliterate
Since Plato lived hundreds of thousands, if not a million, years ago, then Plato was born, lived and died in the Preliterate Age before the advent of this Literate Age that we live in today. In other words there was no writing or reading in the days of Plato and everything was based on Orality or memorisation and recitation. Everything was documented and recorded orally during the Preliterate Age. And, it was in the Age of Orality or the Preliterate Age that Plato lived.
In the Preliterate Age people did not write and Plato certainly did not write down a single book. All the written works wrongly attributed to Plato today are, therefore, not the works of Plato and were not written by him. Plato did not write a book because during his time people don’t write or read.
Even the Republic famously attributed to Plato today was not written by Plato. Somebody else wrote the Republic and attributed it to Plato. At best the works attributed to Plato today may be adulterations or corruptions of the pristine teachings of a Black African Negro Philosopher-prophet who lived several hundreds of thousands of years before the advent of the Age of Literacy.
The ugly implication here is that these works might have been around, being transmitted as a words of mouth from one generation to another, for hundreds of thousands of years before some unreliably anonymous writers decided to pen them down with the advent of this Age of Literacy.
Of course by the time these so-called works of Plato were penned down they must have lost almost everything original that Plato taught hundreds of thousands of years earlier. The truth of the matter is that what we have today being paraded as the works of Plato are nothing more than the philosophies and ideologies of faceless writers who used the name ‘Plato’ as pen-names or pseudonyms. These works have nothing, whatsoever, to do with the personality and teachings of the true Plato who was a Black African Negro Philosopher who lived and died hundreds of thousands of years before the advent of the Age of Literacy.
While Plato lived and died in the Preliterate Age the anonymous writers of the works attributed to Plato today all lived and died in this Age of Literacy. There is a gap of several hundreds of thousands of years between Plato and the writers of the works wrongly attributed to Plato today.
Plato’s Work was Non-Greek
Quite a number of works and books, both lost and extant, are attributed to Plato by Western scholarship today. But when we take a scrutinising and contextual look at the works attributed to Plato we readily discover that the author or authors of these various works was not talking about Greeks or the Greek society. What we see, instead, that most of these works attributed to Plato were talking about the African society.
Plato’s works have nothing to do with Greek civilisation. Furthermore we should note the fact, when discussing the works attributed to Plato today, that Plato lived and died hundreds of thousands of years before the emergence of the Greek civilisation.
Plato was said to have written the book called the Republic. But a careful reading of the Republic reveals the fact that the philosophy, the culture, the religion, the general sociology, and everything else that Plato discussed in the Republic have nothing to do with the Greeks or the Greek civilisation. This, of course, shows that Plato had nothing to do with the Greeks or the Greek civilisation.
Instead Plato was discussing a non-Greek, Black African Negro civilisation within ancient Black African Negro cultural and social settings.
A closer look at the name ‘Republic’ itself will readily demonstrate the fact that it is actually a Greek corruption of a very ancient Black African Negro term.
First is the fact that the name ‘Republic’ is actually a compound term that is breakable into ‘Repu’ and ‘Blic’.
‘Repu’ is the Greek corruption of the original Black Negro African national name, ‘Fara’. Of course ‘Repu’ is phonetically the same as Rapa, Rafa or Fara. And Fara was the name of the Black African Negro world civilisation of Africa in very ancient times.
And ‘Blic’, the second word in the name ‘Republic’, is also a Greek corruption of an earlier Black African Negro national name, namely, ‘Baraka’. Bara was the name of a very ancient Black African Negro civilisation that once flourished in Africa and as a result of which Africans, their culture and religion, once upon a time, came to be referred to as ‘Bara’ or ‘Bara-ka’.
So, when Plato discussed about ‘Republic’ in his works he was actually talking or preaching about a very ancient Black African Negro civilisation known as ‘Fara-Baraka’; a term which the Greek tongue dialectally pronounced as ‘Repu-Blik’ or ‘Republic’.
The Republic is a work centred on the detailed description of and dialogue on the nature of the society ancient Black African Negro civilisation of Fara-Bara or Fara-Baraka.
In the Republic Plato, through the authority of the Black African Negro Philosopher-prophet called Socrates and who lived several millennia before Plato, described the ideal society of the ancient Black African Negro Fara-Bara civilisation located in the interior of Black Negro Africa as being comprised of the Philosopher-kings at the top, the military class in the middle, and the general civilian population at the bottom.
Even Western scholarship admits that in the Republic Plato was not talking about any Greek civilisation at all.
Plato and Socrates
The Encyclopaedia Britannica observed that, “we can explain why Plato uses the literary character of Socrates in many of his writings to present ideas that go well beyond anything that the historical Socrates said or believed. In these works, Plato is developing ideas that were inspired by his encounter with Socrates, using methods of inquiry borrowed from Socrates, and showing how much can be accomplished with these Socratic starting points. That is why he assigns Socrates the role of principal interlocutor, despite the fact that he did not intend these works to be mere re-creations of Socrates’ conversations.”
Plato and Others
Plato is Abraham
Plato was more or less the same person who is known in the Semitic scriptures variously as Abram, Abraham or Prophet Ibrahim.
Plato is Brahma
Plato was Pharaoh
The world emperors of Africa used to be known as ‘Fara’ in ancient times. It is this name ‘Fara’ that we see in the Semitic scriptures as ‘Pharaoh’ or ‘Fir’aun’. So, the implication here is that the same royal and sacred title that was known as ‘Plato’ to the Greeks was the same royal and sacred title that was known to the ancient Semites as ‘Pharaoh’ or ‘Fir’aun’.
That the Old Testament and the Qur’an did recount an encounter between Abraham and Pharaoh goes in a way to prove the fact that both Abraham and Pharaoh were Black African Negro emperors addressed with same royal and sacred title, namely, Fara or Bara. In other words both Abraham and Pharaoh were Bara or Fara Black African Negro world emperors.
This means that the ancients were actually using the title ‘Bara’ or ‘Fara’ much the same way that we use the word ‘king’ or ‘ruler’ today.
It was this Abrahmaic and Pharaonic titles of Bara and Fara that the ancient Greeks pronounced as ‘Plato’.
