There is Hannibal of Tunisia, The Queen of Sheba from Ethiopia, Cleopatra Selene IV, Yaa Asantewaa of Ghana , Nzinga of Matamba, Shaka ka Sezangakhona, Menelik 11, Amina of Zazzua, Mansa Musa of Mali. and the legendary Khufu ( Cheops ) of Egypt. The base of Khufu's 13- city- block pyramid of Giza is almost a perfect square. Every angle is exactly 90 degrees. It is located at the center of the landmass of the earth. The longitude and latitude is 31 degrees North and 31 degrees West. If you take the perimeter of the pyramid , divide it by 2 and multiply it by its height, you get a number equivalent to the mathematical formula PI ( 3.14 or 22/7 ) to the 15th digit ( 3.141592653589793 ). PI is infinite. Scientists have been unable to replicate Petrie's cement , the mortar that has kept the Giza structure in place for 4500 years. Initially at 146.5 meters , it was the world's tallest building for 4300 years until the Eiffel tower in 1889 ( 324 m ). Skeptics have opined that Giza was built by aliens.They are surprised it was built by Africans. It should be no surprise then that the first University in the World, according to the Guinness World Records is African; Al Karaouine in Morrocco ( 859 AD ). It is followed by the second University in the World , Al Azhar in Egypt ( 969 AD ). Then followed by the third , University of Bologna in Italy, ( 1088 AD ), some 229 years after Al Karaouine. It is also no surprise that the greatest repository of knowledge in history, the library of Alexandria was 300 years before the birth of Christ. Throughout the course of history the world has borrowed from one another , and imitated or improved upon the borrowed. Civilization has never been a franchise , and so the world simply rotates , revolves and evolves. To borrow from the French, volume one - and there are nine more to come , is just the hors d'.oeuvre. Bon appetit!
