Seshat was the Ancient Egyptian goddess of wisdom, knowledge, and writing. She was seen as a scribe and record keeper, and her name means she who scrivens (i.e. she who is the scribe), and is credited with inventing writing. She also became identified as the goddess of architecture, astronomy, astrology, building, mathematics, and surveying.
Marvel and stare hard at the image to the right as you wonder how much intelligence and creativity this one goddess must have had to create all this knowledge…
Wait a second, is that a cannabis leaf above her head? It looks pretty clear to me that the marijuana leaf is part of her elevated state of consciousness as it floats above her head, while still being connected to her. Take a look at the Google images of Seshat out there.
Nug Magazine has a really deep and visually interesting theory on how cannabis played a meaningful role in Ancient Egyptian medicine, spirituality, and intellectual creativity. Another theory is the hemp leaf in Seshat’s emblem is unmistakable evidence that the ancient Egyptian rope-stretchers used hemp for their measuring cords.
