Secrets of Ancient Egypt: Horus name
Secret of Anubis - Ancient Astronomy
This Blog "Secrets of Ancient Egypt" was started 19. September 2008 under the name "Mysteries of Ancient Egypt"

Behold, the Secrets of Ancient Egypt, the land that the universe created when the cosmos made the Nile. As the Queen of the constellations raised herself above the two horizons and declared her name as Sirius, so did the jubilation of life occur, meanwhile her husband the Egyptian constellation of Orion stands guard by her.

The articles that you find here, investigates all the mysteries that lies hidden in the ancient desert sand, specifically their spiritual nature which began among the stars.

While I worked in Egypt I quickly saw something more than the guides would talk about.
Like I would say to my guests before entering a temple, "I can give you the regular guide story, which last 40 min, and then you can walk around by yourself? Or..."

"I can give you everything I've got, meaning I will tell you the details, and anything you point to, I will explain. I will use up all of your time, and still have a lot to say. the choice is yours".
- Guess which one they picked, always :)

You could say that this blog is based on that concept, of giving you everything I've got, on what ever topic from this ancient land.

Mysterious objects, that either moves or sings, are studied in more detail. I can guarantee you a journey which you haven't seen before, from below the ground to up among the stars.

The Pyramid builders that left empty sarcophagus and a knowledge which no one have been able to imitate since...
A peculiar and mysterious thing, is also the fact that what we have from the Pyramid Builders are in stone not papyrus manuscripts. Their spiritual belief was written into the stones.

The mysteries of Edgar Cayce are also looked into, as well as the case of the Emerald tablets.

Furthermore you have a unique opportunity to read more about individual stars and constellations of ancient Egypt, known under the name of the Decans.

This blog goes extensively into different subjects from this holy land, and takes you on a real as well as truthful journey into the magical land of the great ancient Egyptians.

The Emerald tablets articles can be found under the label Hermes Trismegitus, there are more than one article about each subject, and it is for that reason that they are arranged into label categories.

The Broken stone of Senusret I 1971 - 1926 B.C.


Senusret I of Ancient Egypt, the Broken Stone

Block of stone on the ground
So many years have pasted since the glory days of these great ancient civilization, and many things still lie in great ruins. Inside and around each temple, so many objects are still lying around waiting for their placement in the ancient hierarchy. This is one of such engraved stones which is waiting.
Again I notice the artistically difference upon different rocks, especially around the so-called Greek temples. It is so easy to see, that once there stood buildings of much older dates.
This object grabbed my attention because it looked much older than the Greek period, and the Horus name, which I have never seen a Greek pharaoh have. Furthermore it was a Granite stone, again I haven't seen such beautiful work on Granite, from the Greeks period.

What can be seen on this engraving is a goddess praising a Horus name of a pharaoh. The Horus name is normal written inside a square called a Serekh (which you can see in the image, with the glow around it). This is probably one of the most ancient of ways to write the pharaohs name, besides this they also have another name written in a cartouche. Well back to this piece.
I looked in all of my books, and I could only find one pharaoh with this Horus name. This pharaoh is known under the name Senusret I, a pharaoh from the 12 Dynasty (which was between 1971 - 1926 B.C. - almost 2000 years before Christ).

I could not identify one of the characters in his name (see red ink on the image above), but I still suspect it to be him, both because of how they easily could change their names (sometimes just some characters in their name), and also because of the quality of the engravings, and then again, on Granite.
The 12 Dynasty is known for its magnificent artistically heights, both the literature and the artefacts of this time period, are truly beautiful.
I think the Goddess in the relief, could be the Lion Goddess Sekhmet or maybe some older version of the Goddess Hathor (Herher).
