Peaceful and egalitarian matriarchies achieved by:

ANARCHICAL EMERGENCE FROM INSIDE- OUT / BOTTOM-UP

INSTEAD OF TOP-DOWN SUBJUGATION

It is obvious that many of the typical strategies in achieving and managing a peaceful and egalitarian system in the hunter and gatherer societies, continue to make up an integrated part of the fundamentally religious or spiritual ethos of the great confederation of peacefully intertwined matriarchal clans, held together by a Queen Mother who supervised her queendom from INSIDE - OUT and / or BOTTOM-UP, encouriging the unfolding of new matriarchal clans, all of them in their turn led by clan mothers / priestesses or sacred matriarchs who made up the council of the primeval Great Queen Mother - constituting an increasingly complex system, the more it expanded from smaller villages to cities and  eventually to great realms of queendoms.

This kind of selfgenerating, selfimitating and selfregulating process reminds a lot of the overall processes in the organic nature at a microcosmic as well as in macrocosmic ones; The unfolding of the fibonaccirelated spiral of a selfimitating fractal repeating itself over and over again in endless chains of beautiful combinations, making up increasingly complex structures over space and time. I will return to this complex structure that opposes the TOP-DOWN kind of society that´s imposed upon people of the faboulous wealthy, well organised and religiously very sophisticated society of Ghana in the beginning of the Middle Ages on this page:
