the arcane perpetual guardians of the esoteric and ethereal earth science.


Ma umau-the cipher

Maumau is the ageless cipher for the definitive science and pragmatic knowledge required to prolifically and sustainably inhabit the planet earth, the realistic path to the realization of eternal life.

Experts and neophytes have deliberated over the mystery and origin of maumau to little avail. Other than relating maumau to the African armed revolt against colonialism in Kenya, there is little else that is adduced meaningfully of this ageless cipher. One supposition has been that the maumau was abbreviation for ‘mzungu aende ulaya mwafrika apate uhuru’, but nothing would be further from the truth. All such suggestions which relate maumau origins to the anti-colonial struggle and period dismally fail to account for how the maumau chant existed in antiquity as encountered in the pre-circumcision rites and other ceremonies of the Agîkûyû.  Maumau evidently is a mystery rooted in the native African religion from antiquity. These sacred words were the choice mantra chanted by those about to take the oath of defending the native land and rights against the colonialists’ oppression.  The actual cipher is ma-umau which was recounted by the throngs of the uninitiated to its mysticism as variables of umauma and maumau. To the white man, as well as any one uninitiated in the wealth of Gîkûyû language and culture, the words uma uma, and their anagram of mau mau, merely meant ‘get out, get out’, or any other such mediocrities. And whereas indeed the Africans desired the colonialists to get out of their ancestral land and out of their lives, the crypt ma umau as an ancient code of the tribe encapsulates within it the quintessential aspects of ûgî-kûyû (wisdom of the fathomless spring of waters).

Using the Gîkûyû language to interpret itself, the sound Ma, means truth. The ‘u’ refers to two, twins, twice or double. The name ‘Ma’ is also the root sound in water- ‘ma-î’. Incidentally, in the Sanskrit language, the Ma sound means both truth and water. As we shall illustrate with other extensive examples, a close link exists between Sanskrit and the Gîkûyû language. Among the Maasai, the name Ka-mau was applied to twin sons. The same would be true in ûgî-kûyû, given the close cultural ties that existed between the two communities. There is also the Mau Ranges whose etymology relates to Ka-Mau, flowing waters from the Mau, where Mau means double waters in cognizant of the twofold nature of the ranges in water provision, the rains and the flow of rivers.

Ma umau, directly means the reality/truth of the four waters. Or rather truth, two, water, twice. ‘Two waters’ twice said, amount to ‘four waters’ also ‘four truths’. The truth of the ‘four waters’ is a profound theme cutting across diverse world cultures, as it appertains to the legend of the origins and nature of life and reality. This mystery has remained encoded in the culture of Gîkûyû as its default guardian for eons.

It is this same mystery of the four water ways that is recounted in the Hebrew creation narrative of the fame Edeni. The name for water in Hebrew is mayim, similar to the maî or mayî of the Agîkûyû.  An eni in both Gîkûyû and Sanskrit means a spring. One of the Hebrew meanings of Ed-en is the tower or central spring, the river source at the centre of the earth from the towering heavens. The heavens in Hebrew are sha-mayI’m, meaning torrents of water, or to be most precise, atmospheric rivers. A related meaning of Eden is delight or pleasure.

In ancient Egypt, the secret source of the primordial waters, the well without abyss and also the land of the divine was Ta-Nuter. One of the meaning of kûyû is a deep well, hence Gîkûyû would be the great deep well, or rather the well without abyss. The Luo name for Lake Victoria, which is the more tangibly recognized origin of the River Nile and the life-line of Egypt, is Nam Lolwe, meaning 'waters that extend to the end of the earth'. The lake itself harnesses its refreshment from the land and air of the region. The Egyptians clearly knew of this location at the centre of the world and described it as where the four sky rivers of the earth diverges from, forming the four sky divisions above the earth. According to the core doctrine of Egyptian science, this location was also the mirror image of the corresponding stars of the constellations above it, hence the name Ta-Kenset, pillar of the stars. The stewardship of the divine location was the core mandate of the Pharaohs, the king of the ancient world and of Egypt. Incidentally, scientists are only recently discovering the phenomenon of atmospheric rivers, which the Egyptians knew as sky-rivers, and had clearly mapped out their global pattern.

mau or aka, two cats is mau mauMau is also the Egyptian name for the cat. And here is how it relates to ma umau. The greatest threat to civilisation according to the Egyptian science was the serpent of chaos, known as Apep. When the waters of earth are imbalanced, the resultant is chaos of draught and famine in some areas while the devastation of inundation happens in others. It was the duty of Ra (wisdom, enlightenment) to perpetually battle against the Apep serpent of chaos. Ra transformed himself into ma umau in bid to vanquish the serpent of chaos, the ignorance that cultivates crisis and decomposition of society and nature. This literally infers that the highest wisdom (ra) is ma umau, the truth of the global atmospheric water ways, and only in the recognition of this truth will it be possible to overcome chaos. The Egyptian symboloized this as the cat fighting a serpent, and so called their cat Mau. The two cats as on the image above and as depicted on the papyrus of Anhai would symbolize mau-mau. The cat was also associated to Aker/Aka, which is Sanskrit for flowing rivers. The cat is subtle in peace but ferocious when provoked. This compares to the world atmospheric river systems and its terrestrial support topography, elements and reality.

Ma umau directly means the reality of the four water ways, which subsequently relate to the pristine paradise of Eden, or Shamballa. The pages on this site relate the evidences of this arcane science. This is the science whose implementation is expedient for true progress on earth, which begins with battling the serpent of chaos, presently referred to as climate change and resultant global crisis.

Among the Ikamba people, neighbours of the Agîkûyû, the title umau means grandfather, whereby, ma umau would mean the truth of the grandfathers. Matra is the Sanskrit for mother, which was loaned to the Latin Mater and took it’s rounds through the European languages as mutter, moeder or mother which derivatives of spellings is the name matha, and usually shortened for ma. The real origin of association of truth to the mother is found in ûgîkûyû, where both our truth, and our mother is the same name, ma-itû. The Sanskrit matra conveys the meaning of illumination of truth. The highest truth is our nursing mother. This Ma-itû is the derivative to the Ma’at of the ancient Egyptians, their great exposition of justice and truth. It is from Ma'at that we get Emet, or Emaet, the Hebrew word for truth. The ma umau is Ma-itû, Ma’at, Mayet, Emet, Matri and Truth, the mother who takes care of the earth and nurses its inhabitants. The father in this case is God, Eni Kai, Enkai, Nkai, or Ngai, all being the same name which being written has the forced differences in spellings. Eni Kai, as already mentioned of eni, refers to the source or spring of Kai. Kai loosely means what follows the flow of water or rivers, which is life and its dynamism. Ka in Ancient Egypt refers to the soul. EnKai means the source of life, and all its dynamics, hence the creator and sustenance of all dynamics.

The most sacred mantra of the Eastern civilisations, in Buddhism, Hinduism and Jainism is Om or Aum. They regard it as the sound of the universe, depicting the past, present and narrating the future of the universe. It is the essence of the earth. (man-tra is a thought-tool, a matter to be thought on). In analysing the Aum mantra, one obtains the following, aum-aum-aum, in which clearly is the ma umau ma umau mantra recited in the ûgîkûyû initiation ceremonies by those about to be initiated. This parallels the practice in Eastern religions where the master or teacher gives the student the cipher words for contemplation. The same mantra central to the great nations of the East was shared in the reclusive society of the Agîkûyû.

The umma in Arabic refers to the whole Muslim community bound by religion and is certainly comparable to the Swahili umma, which means the populace. This meaning of umma in present language is certainly derived from the meaning of the mantra aum, which connotes the entirely of the universe.

mauna loa and kea in 3dThe antipode location of the native lands of the Agîkûyû just happens to be the Central Pacific Ocean, and in particular the Islands of Hawaii. It is on these islands that the derivative of maumau is to be found. One of these islands is Mau-i which means, place of the double waters. There is also the highest earth mountain when measured from its base to peak. The Mau na Kea, and her neighbour the Mau-na Loa. The first observation is that these two mountains are twins, hence the ascription Mau in their naming. The -Loa almost matches to the English Lower, and is the lower of the two mountains. The sound lo/ro means the lowest point of the landscape. In Ģîkûyû, the name for a trench, as the lowest point of the topography is mûka-ro, or mûta-ro. The difference in them being that the former has water flowing in it (ka is flowing maui duo mountainswater), the latter not necessarily occupied by flowing water. The Hawaiians relate the Loa to means a long mountain, as opposed indeed to higher. The essence of Mau-na as meaning twin ranges is paralleled by the Mau Narok and Mau Nanyuk in Kenya, as named by the Maasai people for the Mau ranges and the Nandi hills respectively, which suggest the use of a similar, if not common etymology in antiquity spread halfway across the globe.The second largest of the Hawaii chain of islands is Mau-i, upon which are only two mountains which compose the entire island, hence qualifying the appropriateness of the title.These four mountains of Hawaii, the two on Hawaii main, and the other two on Maui, indeed are topographic features so characterized to hold the element cipher mau concealed in plain sight. The rich mythology of Hawaii in relation to Maui certainly relates to the particulars descriptive of their own islands as the modern maps of the region attests.

newzealand mauiAnother independent instance of the fame of Mau-i is New-Zealand, which is known in the native language as the boat and catch of Maui, in describing the layout of the two main Islands that compose the country. Ika is deciphered as the fish or (i-following ka-flowing water), while the waka is the boat or (wa-as ka-flowing water). Islands are mountains that arise from the depths of surrounding water, and in their respect of being solid as oppossed to the seas, they occasion differential warming and cooling in respect to surrounding water mass, which instigates the atmospheric pressure differentials, the origin of the system of winds. The winds then transfer the moisture ladden air to the dry locations. In this aspect, mountains and islands are the core earth features of the hydrological cycle, hence their attribution as ma, for water. The legends of Maui inspite of variations are to a large extent the same narrative, or in reference to different Maui characters, yet are connected and related in the use of similar language to name similar attributes, which binds the Polynesian (New Zealand to Hawaii) past to a common origin, and also serves to illumine the nature of the natural phenomenon of ma umau. Mau-i here means Mau following or mau follower, or along the dual channel of the atmospheric river system. Indeed, the Islands in the midst of the oceans are such positioned to generate the dynamics necessary to maintain the global atmospheric rivers configuration, whose prominent intersection location is the Ma Umau, and the antipode the Mau-na. The figurative exploits of Maui the legendary relate to the Polynesian islands role in the global atmospheric hydrology configuration.

From the poem below as narrated in Hawaiian culture, Maui is recognized as a name shared by four brothers, which in reality was not about a family of humans but of certain related innate attributes of earth’s formation, most probably of the islands features of Hawaii and Maui, yet withot ruling out the globaal hydrological features of ma umau, of which these islands are component of, and related to the number four as well.

"Akalana was the man;
Hira−a−ke−ahi was the wife;
Maui First was born;
Then Maui−waena;
Maui Kiikii was born;
Then Maui of the malo."
−Queen Liliuokalani's Family Chant.

In the Hawaiian legends, there is even an actual reference of maumau, when Maui asked the Kahuna Kaleiioku to release the winds from the calabash known as ipu-makania ka maumau, which is interpreted as"the calabash of the perpetual winds." Maumau in this instance is the perpetuity of the winds, the core dynamics of the atmospheric water ways.

The equivalent to Maui in Meso-American legends is Masau'u, which one source proffers is sounded as Mau-sau'u, who in Hopi mythology is the character who presided over the creation of the fourth world. The fourth world here may be interpreted as the four divisions of the heavens above the earth. Mau-sau'u, the proper rendering of the name, refers to the 'the four ways of the twain waters', which is in reference to the four divisions of the atmospheric rivers, and the four divisions of the corresponding terrestrial waters, just as does ma umau. The name Masau'u also renders as the four ways of truth/water. (Ma-water/truth, Sa-way, u'u-two'two). Hopi depict Masau'u as skeleton man, and attribute to him the divinity of both the earth and the underworld, or death, yet also as a benign and humerous character, who taught the ancient Hopi the way of live as should be lived upon the earth. The culture of the Hopi is substantially focalized on taking care of the nature, according to the instructions of Mau-sau'u. It also contains the prudent warnings of what should transpire when humanity ignores the teachings of Mau-sau, the way of ma umau.

Mau-ritania is a West African nation whose name is derived from antiquity. The name of the natives was latinised to moors from what they called themselves, the Mau-ri, meaning exuberance along the Mau, the atmospheric duo river above their land. The edge of the river Senegal is within the stretch of the western component of the sky-rivers. In Vietnam, the name Mau inspires the similar Sanskrit meaning. In the Cape of Ca-Mau, the ocean in the east and west are the two waters that surround the cape. One will see both sunrise and sunset over the oceans. There is also Mau-nath Bhajan of Uttapradesh region in India, where the Mau refers to the two rivers which form the boundary of the district that goes by this name. The region, being neighboured by the two waters (Rivers Gangra and Tamsa) definitely qualifies as a Mau relation.

It is the inopportune reality that modern science spurns the mythologies of ancient peoples, and such is how the gems of knowledge these contain is yet unharnessed, the disposition of the planet hence rendered the worse off, for the failure of humanity to ascend to the immanent truth of existence. Mythology was our ancestor’s choice method of expressing and preserving their discoveries and science. We have both these records from earth’s origins, as well as the technology to attest the mysteries of nature with finality, if only we set ourselves to the task.

The ma umau  cipher was commonly versed in the ancient world context of a universal language of nomenclature, and it was on this guise that the agîkûyû dominated Kenyan freedom struggle, voiced the code to the rest of the world to inform the world that the global atmospheric hydrology system was threatened by the foreign and strange practices of the colonialists and their like minded converts. But the world had forgotten the mother of all truth and ignored the ma umau cry for intervention. And hence the earth and its institutions continue on the path of degeneration and corruption, and subsequently is in the crisis of chaos. The prevailing global crisis has the only one panacea; that of rediscovering and implementing the ma umau, the tangibility of the four truths which pervades throughout the universe.
