 Sudan
Around 3000 BC the Egyptians were drawn into the region, lured by their quest for raw materials and their desire to access the riches of sub-Saharan Africa.
The resurgence of Egyptian power, begun by Kamose (1555–1550 BC) and confirmed by Ahmose (1550–1525 BC), led to a power struggle between Egypt and Kush culminating in the conquest of the latter by Thutmose I (1504–1492 BC) and the establishment of the border of the empire at Kurgus, south of AbuHamed.
Development appears to have been rapid; by the mid-eighth century BC King Kashta, as the champion of the Egyptian god Amun who had been adopted by the rulers of this second Kingdom of Kush, extended his control to Thebes and his successor Piye (Piankhy) went on to conquer the whole of the Egyptian Nile valley.

These translate as "in vain we do by many which can be done by means of fewer", "pluralities ought not be supposed without necessity", and "if two things are sufficient for the purpose of truth, it is superfluous to suppose another", respectively.
One such theory would be that for every action There is an opposite action of half intensity, but benevolent indetectable creatures magnify the opposing action with input of their own energy so it appears to be equal.
These creatures will all die in the year 2055, and at that point the observable nature of the universe will instantly shift.

One of the commentators in the 1993 exchange rejected Frank's classification of the period after 800 B.C. as a contraction phase on the grounds that it was the time that the Phoenicians settled Carthage.
Frank's answer was that it was the generalized contraction in the Levant that forced the Phoenicians to move west.
