.... a lot of the pharaohs intentionally
chose a name with the word "ankh"
in it to represent their 'eternal life'.
The great anthropologist Luca Cavalli Sforza
(Stanford Un.) spent many years researching a tribe
of pigmees living in Cameron and these pigmees
called themselves AKA, a word meaning simply *people*.
And there are four main tribes in Ghana who speak
a common language, whose name, AKAN,
means *of the people*.
An nteresting primitive tribe of hunters, living on a sacred
mountain at the border of Uganda, Sudan and Kenya,
called themselves IK, meaning *people*. The word IK
means *clan* in several dialects of the Berbers.
The Khazars had a religious leader called the KAGAN.
Now the acceptable equivalences KAGAN >
KAHAN (hebrew) > COHEN (high priest) >
KAHN (king of Mongols) > CACANUS (chiefs of the Avars)
seem to have the same original meaning:
AN = *divine light*, KA = *of the people*.
Is the *divine light of people* the original meaning of the
term INCA ?

for this insanity)
