kiss

The explanation that the kiss is a gene didn’t match with  scientists opinions, because it is not practiced by all human societies. There are several theories that try to get closer to the memory of feeding breastfeed, or how the ancestors  feed their chickens (see how they feed the birds or mammals chickens after no longer breastfeeding). Although their  teeth are grown, mother persist in behavior just to love them. In support of the idea that the kiss is more learned than instinctive is that not all humans kiss. Some tribes do not do that. While 90% of people kissing, 10% have no idea what they lose. Others believe that the kiss is inborn and make statements in favor of this the evidence that animals practice the same motion. Today I found the motivation that the kiss is to help us out if we have chosen the right partner. When the girls are coming, the boys hormones communicate changing information about how strong  will be the children that we do with that partner. According to LiveScience, for example, women prefer the smell out of men whose genes for some specific proteins of  the immune system is different. This match could give birth to children with a stronger immune system, and with greater chances of survival. Last but not least there is the pleasure explanation. The tongues and our lips are invaded by nerve terminations  that help enhance the sensations for those that are in love and their lips touch.

The great pyramids

The first pyramid was built as the burial place of King Djoser in c.2630 B.C., by his gifted architect Imhotep. It rose in six stages and is called the Step Pyramid. It was supposed to represent a gigantic stairway for yhe king to climb to join the sun-god in the sky. Some later kings had step pyramids too, but in the region of King Sneferu the true pyramid with sloping sides developed. The idea of this pyramid was to create the mound that had emerged out of the watery ground at the beginning of time, on which the sun-god stood and brought the other gods and goddesses into being. The largest pyramid of all is the Great Pyramid at Giza, built for King Khufu in c. 2528 B.C. The pyramids were intended to protect the bodies of the pharaohs buried deep inside them. Later pyramids contained inscriptions of spells to help the pharaoh in the afterlife. Doors of granite and false passages were constructed to deter robbers who came in pursuit of the rich offerings buried with the kings. But by c.1000 B.C. all the pyramids had been robbed of their precious contents.pyramidpyramids pyramids

Famous pharaohs

THE KING was not only the most powerful and important man in Egypt- he was thought to be a god. He was know as the pharaoh- a word which derives from a respectful way of  referring to the king by describing him as the ” great house” ( per-ao ), meaning the palace where he lived. The Queen of Egypt could also be seen as a goddess but was usually given the title of ” Great Royal Wife”- only rarely did women rule Egypt in their own right. There was an effective system of  training a prince to become a pharaoh, involving him becoming an expert sportsman and potential war leader. Often the ruling pharaoh would adopt his heir as “co- regent” to enable a smooth take- over when he died. Princes sometimes had to wait a long time. One pharaoh holds the record for the longest reign we know for any monarch. Pepy II came to the throne when he was six years old. He was still king of Egypt 94 years later when he was 100. It is quite remarkable in Egypt’s long history that we have only a few references to pharaohs being assassinated, usually as a result of a plot in the court to put a prince who was not the true heir on to the throne.

AKHENATEN AND NEFERTITI

In Akhenaten’s reigh the traditional Egyptian gods were banished- only the sun-god was worshipped. To break the links with other gods, Akhenaten founded a new capital city and closed the temples of others gods. Queen Nefertiti helped her husband set up the cult of the sun-god Aten and probably ruled with him. After their death Tutankhamun and his successors restored the old gods. The names of Akhenaten and Nefertiti became hated and were removed from inscriptions and their temples were torn down.

TUTANKHAMUN

This ruler came to the throne at only nine years old. He was obviously guided by his high officials, but seems to have been determined to bring back the old gods who had been banished by Akhenaten. The resting place of the young king Tutankhamun was the only tomb of a New Kingdom pharaoh to escape almost untouched by robbers. It was the last of the valley tombs to be discovered, being found by Howard Carter in 1922. Its contents included weapons, clothes, furniture, jewellery, musical instruments, and model boats, as well as the king’s famous coffins and mask. Many of these items were either made of solid gold or were richly decorated with gold leaf. The king was buried with his two still- born daughters and a treasures heirloom- a lock of hair of his grandmother Queen Tiye.
