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.

You can also use the list below, turning the pages to see illustrating images of each article.

The Murder of Amenemhet I and the Lost Millingen Papyrus

The 12 Dynasty began with the pharaoh Amenemhet I, he ruled between 1991 B.C - 1962 B.C, almost 4000 years ago.

The 200 years or more before the rule of Amenemhet I had been filled with wars, so Amenemhet I task was not a small one, especially considering he was not of royal blood.
But he was indeed in a very good position to take advantages of the turmoil in the kingdom. He is said to have been the vizier of Pharaoh Mentuhotep III. Amenemhet I was also known as Ameny and Ammenemes, he would come to reign for 30 years, and brought a large amount of stability to the country.

To be very honest about this, Amenemhet I gathered together a large army and over threw the pharaoh. But it is also said that he did not stop there, Amenemhet I would not rest until all his rivals were dead. Beginning ones ruler ship through the means of a cup will defiantly give birth to new enemies.
And one night Amenemhet I felt the hunter's breath near his bed.

The Murder of Amenemhet I and The Lost Millingen Papyrus

The Milligen papyrus is lost today, but before it mysteriously disappeared it was copied. It is a very unusual text, because it is a text that was seen as written by Amenemhet I (after his death), to his son Senwosret, about his own murder. It should be seen as a political propaganda poem.
The beginning of the Instruction given by his Majesty the King of Upper and Lower Egypt, Seheteo-ib-Re, son of Re, Amenemhet, justified, when he spoke revealing truth to his son, the Lord of all, He said:

"You who have risen as a god, Give heed to what I (Amenemhet I) shall say to you, So that you may reign over the land, rile the shores (of the Nile), And bring about an abundance of what is good and beneficial.

Maintain your vigilance against those who should be subordinate to you, But who turn out not to be so, Men in whose loyalty one can place no trust; Do not let yourself be alone with them.

Put no trust in a brother, Acknowledge no one as a friend, Do not raise up yourself / intimate companions, For nothing is to be gained from them.

When you lie down at night, let your own heart be watchful over you, For no man has any to defend him on the day of anguish. I was generous to the pauper, I sustained the orphan, I caused him who had nothing to become at length like a man of means. But it was one who ate my bread who conspired (against me), One to whom I had given my support devised dread deeds thereby, Those clad in my fine linen behaved toward me like worthless lotus, And those anointed with my myrrh made my way slippery before me (poured water under me).

Oh you my living images, you who share mortality with me, Make mourning for me, mourning such as has never been heard, For the burden of (that) struggle was such as had never been seen. When one fights on the field of struggle with the past forgotten, Excellence is of no avail to him who knows not what he should know.

It was after supper, when darkness had fallen, And I had decided to take an hour of relaxation; I was lying on my bed, for I was tired, And I started / to drift off to sleep.

Weapons (intended for) my protection were raised against me, While I acted like a snake of the desert. I woke up to the fighting, pulled myself together, And found that it was a skirmish of the palace guard.

If I could have quickly taken weapons in my hand, I would have made the cowards retreat in turmoil. But no one is strong at night, and none can fight by himself; No successful result can come about without an ally.

/ And so ruin occurred while I was without you, When the courtiers had not yet heard that I would hand over (the throne) to you, When I had not yet sat down with you so as to confirm your succession; For I was not ready for it, I did not expect it; My heart had not conceived of indolence of the part of the servants.

Had women ever organized the troops? Are revolutionaries ever educated right within the palace? Is the flood let loose so that it may destroy the land? Are people ruined through their own actions? Misfortune had never come near to me since my birth, And there has never arisen one equal to me in doing deeds of valour.

/ I subdued (the land) as far as Yebu, And turned my course back to the Delta. I stood on the borders of the land and perused its interior; I fulfilled the supremacy of power by the manifestation of my might.

I was one who increased therein, (For I was) favoured by Nepri; Hapy gave me honor on every field, So that none hungered during my years, / none thirsted therein. Men took their ease through what I had done And recounted legends about me, For I ordered everything in its proper place.

Amenemhet I poem goes on in the same style, around 7 more paragraphs.

From The Literature of Ancient Egypt ISBN: 977 424 817 1

Since nothing seems to have been investigated, other than the accepted poem, one must wonder if his own son had anything to do with Amenemhet I murder.

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).
