Secret of Anubis - Ancient Astronomy
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 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.

Things found inside Djosers Step Pyramid

0 comments
People tend to believe that the Pyramids were empty when they were first opened, but this is not true. 

The Great Pyramids at Giza are the most popular pyramids among people today, but in fact there are many pyramids all the way down to Sudan. 


But even thou the Great Pyramids are so famous, how many people know about what was found inside the pyramids, when they were first opened after thousands of years? 


One thing that might baffle people for eternity, could be why so few if any people have been found in their sarcophagus in the pyramids of Egypt? 


Or why so many lids seem to be of some sort of importance, based on their placement and different looks? 

Or why they all seem to follow a curtain building plan, in the placement of the rocks and even holes.

Djoser Step Pyramid

(also known as Zoser) 3. Dynasty 2630 - 2611 B.C. 
The Granite Tomb Chamber (Supposedly Djoser's resting place); 
There were found pieces of mummies in this chamber. 

Under an outer roughly linen layer, another much finer linen layer was found which was neatly wrapped around (some veins) and bones of the mummy. 

This was a uniquely technique, used only in the old kingdom and maybe even before the old kingdom. 
New C14 age testing has revealed that the mummies are several hundred of years younger than Djoser.

The Eastern Shafts and Galleries underneath Djoser's Step Pyramid; 

This Pyramid is a most fascinating building, and it is build up in different stages. But below the step pyramid, there has been found something more mysterious. 

A deep structure underneath the pyramid, where there is eleven shafts/corridors that stretch towards the west. 

The Galleries called I and IV, have apparently been used as tombs, because two intact sarcophagus of Alabaster were found there and fragments of even more were also found. 

The Gallery called III, could be seen as a corridor that leads to an opening of a little bit bigger room, which were covered by fine Limestone. There were also found the Hip bone of an 18 years old woman, and the tomb bore the sigil of Djoser's Horus name and two other titles which belonged to Imhotep. New C14 Age testing has revealed something, which only adds to the secrets of the Pyramid of Djoser. One set of bones belonging to a woman, dates to several generations Before Djoser. 

The Gallery called VI and IX, contained a beautiful collection of stone vessels, and stacks of plates and cups. Most of the items were made of Alabaster, but there were also found other fine stone materials among the items. All together there were around 40.000 objects. Many objects had inscriptions upon them, and they clearly did not belong to Djoser, they probably belonged to his pharaoh ancestors.

The most obvious mystery to Djoser's Step Pyramid
Is probably the other Tomb, which is also known as the 'South Tomb.' Excavation lead archaeologists to discover not one but two different underground levels. Both have an inner tomb chamber, but they are as fare as I know, two different sizes. 

There are countless of theories as to why this South Tomb exists.

Pyramids by Night

0 comments
The Giza plateau is a magical place to walk, and the mysteries of this place are not few. Most visitors see the Great pyramids at day time, and tend to miss the other side of these magnificent structures.

When the sun sets and the star covered darkness arrives, the lights are lithe by the great pyramids. 

Orion stands in the background as a guardian of the holy night, Sirius she watches on beside him. 


"Behold…," A deep beautiful Oxford voice declares from behind the ancient rocks. Suddenly the Sphinx turns from Beautiful light yellow to a deep reddish color, as the voice speaks in the name of this fascinating sculpture of rocks, 
"They gave me the name of Sphinx…." Laser lights shoot its way around the Pyramids, giving away their locations in the dark of night.

Then push play and lean back. 

EGYPT: Clip Nr.02 - Part Two

 

  The Light and sound show is brought to you by 
MISR COMPANY FOR SOUND AND LIGHT:
http://www.soundandlight.com.eg/

Information about the Sound and Light-Show: 

The Light and Sound Show starts at; 
6.30 pm October-April (winter) 
 8.30 pm May-September (summer). 

If you are staying in a Hotel, then there should be a information office for the guides from the different companies. There should be some information about the light shows in Egypt, but as I remembered this information always seemed to be lacking. 

But if you ask at your Hotel reception for the guide's hours, they gladly help. 

Then use the Guides office time, and ask them for details about the evenings Sound and Light Show. 

You should also be able to make a excursion (trip) through them, this means that the guides takes care of everything for you, and all you need to do is follow the instructions, which should be given very clearly (and never be afraid to ask any questions, even twice). 
It is both easy and cheaper to do it yourself, because you off course need to pay the guide for their extra work. 

 If you would like to go alone, then I would recommend walking if your Hotel is in a okay distance from the Pyramids. 

But if you live a much longer distance from the Pyramids, then a cab is both cheap and easy. 

To have absolutely no problems under your way, then I would recommend you do one thing before you leave your Hotel (actually two in One); When your in the reception, then ask them to write the Arabic name for the light and sound show at the Pyramids or at the Giza plateau, on a small piece of paper. 

This will firstly give your presence to the Hotel personal if you should get lost, then they'll know. If you kindly tell your cap driver that you going to the area of the Pyramids, in English, then hand him the piece of paper with the Arabic name, and off you go.

You can make some good deals with your cap driver, for a return trip too, or you can take another - up to you.

Finding the office to buy your ticket for the show, might seem a little bit confusing, because everything is new to one. 

So I recommend that you ask the cap driver to drive to the ticket office by the pyramids, but asking people will also help you right of the back, they are truly a very helpful people, and are never really appreciated for their kindness.

Moving statue at Manchester Museum

Moving statue at Manchester Museum

At night and day, at the Manchester Museum, 
things do seem to move... 

A curtain 10' inch ancient Egyptian statue, 
starts to rotate 180 degrees in it's place...

Watch the Video Of the Ancient Egyptian statue Below

• The Moving statue at Manchester Museum
• Speculations
• Facts
• The Singing Colossi of Menon

This story has been posted on the Daily mail as well as the Huffingtonpost, and it is indeed a interesting story.

The article posted on different news networks, try to move the story in a rather mysterious direction. Some referring to the curse of Tutankhamon, news gets a little bit out of hand with he fictional description in between the actual facts. 

At the Manchester museum a small statue had been standing in its place for 80 years, from the time that it was donated to the museum, until very recently, where it was moved into a glass monitor.

Suddenly people noticed that the statue had turned, and as the days passed it would turn even more... Everything from TV physicist and the curator Mr. Campbell Price placed a time lapse camera, to record the statue moving.

Some claim that it only moves in the day hours and it only turns 180 degrees...

The Manchester Museum, Video


Speculations

Some believe there is a scientific explanation for this...
While other believe that there is a spiritual explanation to it...


Fatcs

It is said to be a small statue of an ancient Egyptian named Neb-Senu, it is also said that it is an offering to the great god of the underworld, Osiris. 

It dates back to around 1800 B.C. which would mean that Neb-Senu died in the time of pharaoh Amenemhet III ruler ship which was between 1842-1797 B.C. 

This makes this relic very old, dating back to the 12 Dynasty, before Ramesses II, before Tuthmosis I, and further back. Very old.

On the back of the statue is a prayer asking for bread and beer in the underworld.


I like to dig a little deeper, but it is not easy to dig that much deeper, if the only thing you have is a small statue locked in a glass case..


But I can look at his Name, and see where this might lead me.

What does Neb-Senu Mean?


very superficial, the Word Senu, was incorporated into many pharaohs names. The pharaoh that ruled before Amenemhet II, was a king named Senusret III (1878-1841 B.C).

The word Neb, was used a lot in ancient Egypt. It means everything from good to bad. The word Neb was both used to describe an enemy in some context, but there was also a Grain God called Neb. I would think that this name of Neb belonged to the Grain section of the word. If he was a farmer, then it would be very fitting.

The word Senu is also interesting considering that Neb-Senu is seen as a name of the person, that this statue was dedicated to. 

The word Senu, means Gods. So if we put it together Neb-Senu means Grain-Gods. This off course opens up for the possibility, that it was not the person's name, but maybe the God that the offering was for. 

When we consider the prayer for bread and beer, then it is indeed something that you would pray to the Grain Gods for, because in ancient Egypt the Beer was also made from Grain, so both would go under the Grain-Gods.


These two pharaohs that I have mentioned here, are
Pyramid Builders.
On another note.

The Singing Colossi of Menon


I just have to share this with you. 

The ancient Egyptians ability to work the lands material, is remarkable. Everything from the sandstone block to granite blocks all way to manipulating with the earths strongest material, known as deriot.

On the way to the Valley of the Kings, people usually stop to see the gigantic Menon statues. People stop up for 5 min and take their pictures, and I have not seen one person notice the real architectural construction of these statues.


They go beyond what meets the eye...

What people are missing when they only spend 5 min there, is the real beauty of its creation. They build these colossi's in such a magnificent way, that when the winds hits from certain angles, a musical sound is created hereby making the statues sing in more beautiful notes than normal. 

It was said in the older days, that these great colossi's of Menon would sing towards the two horizons.

One should not underestimate the ability of our most ancient ancestors, for they have proven time and time again, that they were able to construct these gigantic monuments, and they also stand the real test of time itself.

We can't say that today...

Empty Sarcophagus - The Pyramid builders

0 comments

The Empty Sarcophagus of Ancient Egypt

I have been wanting to write about the Empty Sarcophagus for years, I am unsure of why I wait as I tend to do. Maybe because it is still not accepted or even talked about, like so much.. 


So this is a blog article about the 
ancient Pyramid builders,
and something which has nagged 

For years...


First off you need to know this about me, I prefer the Pyramid builders idea's, and even their spiritual concepts. I am not really keen on the priest period, coming in later Egypt, they seem to much like politicians in  today's world...


But the most ancient pharaohs of Egypt, saw something very different than the priest that took over later down the line.

They believed in the soul, and traveling among the stars, whereas the priest invented a new path, where people would live again, through the Resurrection of Osiris... 
Remind you of anything (?)

 This is not about the Pyramid builders themselves, but rather what today's archaeologists refer to as their sarcophagus'(coffins).

Where are the Pyramid Builder's ?

A).
The biggest thing that has always nagged at me, was the fact that no body has ever been found inside those sarcophagus...(?)


I have never head of a Pyramid builder's body found, there are some (very few) bones that have been found, but in many cases they date from either further back (?) or later.. 


Are Archaeologists Sure that they are Coffins ?

B).
Another thing I noticed and again it presented more questions in my mind than any answers.. The fact that almost all of them seem to lack a top part, the part that would seal the (coffin)?



And then in another case you have a odd looking Coffin? The Mysterious Sarcophagus of Sekhemkhet  completely sealed, but then its found empty..?

All of the sarcophagus' are made of one single block of material, either alabaster, granite or something else. clearly indicating the importance of it, being of the same material. There seems to be a pattern or some sort of standard to how it should have looked.


Another thing to keep in mind is the fact, that the coffins could not have been dragged in after the building was constructed, because the passage ways are too narrow. 

It is therefore concluded that the sarcophagus' were placed inside before the construction was completed. most likely when the construction reached the levels of where they were going to be placed...

Should this then mean, that they dragged in the kings body after? Since pyramids where build while the king lived (or so is the thought).. hardly a royal way of burial..

nahh.. to me, to many things, does not make sense, if it is a tomb...

I have a little something to share with you, Pictures of some Sarcophagus' from the Pyramid builder's and something else...

Mysterious Sarcophagus of Sekhemkhet 2649 B.C. - 2643 B.C.

0 comments

Mysterious Sarcophagus of Sekhemkhet



No inscriptions can be found on the so-called sarcophagus.

It is cut from one single Alabaster block.

The opening is at the end, instead of the top, being a sliding slab.


When they discovered this mysterious sarcophagus, it was tightly sealed.

When they finally got the sliding slap up, the sarcophagus was empty....?




Another puzzling thing from ancient Egypt, has to be the mysterious empty sarcophagus found in Egypt (coffin) of the Pyramid builder Sekhemkhet who ruled from 2649 B.C. to 2543 B.C., more than 3000 years ago.

Sekhemkhet is not really mentioned that much, I do wonder why?... If anything he should be known for, how he wanted his sarcophagus (coffin) to look, there is none like it, not even in the ancient world.



Not only is it completely unique, I personally think it also reveals a knowledge which I find rather peculiar.

Mysterious Sarcophagus of Sekhemkhet 2649 B.C. - 2643 B.C.

The pyramid known as "the buried pyramid" is said to belong to Sekhemkhet, it was abandon shortly after it was begun. It is suspected that it was because of Sekhemhet's short ruler ship of only around 6 years.



If it had been finished it would have been larger than Djosers pyramid, reaching 70 meters into the sky. But sadly his ruler ship was too short to complete this masterpiece.


In another part of the buried pyramid complex, they found a mummified child, but no one else, No pharaoh. They suspect the body of the pharaoh was moved...


A rather odd thought, considering they also suspect that the  child was Sekhemkhet's son. I have never head of a pharaoh or the pharaohs family merely leaving a child behind, like it was nothing...


I personally think there is a lot that can be studied, so I am recapping a lot in this post.


The ancient Pyramid builders are the most unknown pharaohs of their time. Creating massive pyramids, which some refer to as tombs (?)... And suddenly the last Pyramid builder had left earths bondage to join the souls journey among the stars, taking a supreme knowledge with him.

Mystical Objects inside the Pyramid at Giza

PART #02 

Part #01-The mystical sphere of Dr. Ray Brown

Scroll Down to Watch Video Clip

The great Pyramid at Giza is more known for its magnificent size and the architectural design and measurements. Even today it stands much greater than any other ancient monument of Egypt, its perfection is still incredible clear.
But there are many mysterious sides to the Pyramids at Giza, which are hardly mentioned, and here is one.



the Dixon Relics 
These items can be found at the British museum - Also known as the Dixon Relics.

Mystical Objects found inside the Pyramid at Giza 

This short post is about what was found inside the actual great pyramid at Giza.

In 1872 a man named Waynman Dixon were exploring the great pyramid’s queen’s chamber, when he discover two shafts, one in the north wall and one in the south wall.

The shafts were actually hidden(but only in this chamber), and so he removed the rocks until he came to the shaft ‘canal’. 

Mystical Objects that Dixon found; 


• A small piece of a wood staff/rod thing 

• A small bronze hook 
• A Granite sphere/ball 



The rod/staff piece which he found, seems to be lost or something? ? Some believe that there could have been preformed Carbon 14 analyses of the wood piece, so they would have a date of the objects (or rather one of the object). 

In 1993 the German Engineer Rudolf Gantenbrink investigated the shafts of the Queen’s chamber, with a small video camera which was attached upon a mini robot.

One of the pictures showed what you see upon the picture below.

Two rod/staff like objects, one was Dixons rod, and the other one looked a lot like the piece of what Dixon had found back in 1872. The Dixon Relics 




It will be interesting to see when these objects are taken out of the shaft, even more interesting would be when the rod/staff like object dates too.

I haven’t heard anything about, what these objects could have been used for. I believe there is some suspicion about the hook and the shafts doors which are still blocked. 


Personal note

When I saw that program on national geographic, where they took the small camera robot as fare as they could and hit a door, I had an interesting thought.

When they made a little hole to see what lay beyond the shaft door, they were met by rock material.

I clearly remembered that I thought it was a round thing of some sort, I could see some curves which are mostly found in round surfaces, and for me the material looked a lot like the material of the granite ball that Dixon found.

The Lost Pyramid

12 comments
Have you ever heard of the Lost Pyramids in ancient Egypt?
Updated 21.06.2013

There are a lot of pyramids that have been lost to mankind, even destroyed pyramids, as well as those that 
have not been found yet.

I do adore to sink into the books about ancient Egypt, their knowledge constantly astounds me.

  • Destroyed Pyramids
  • Lost Pyramids
  • Pyramids that have not yet been found

Sankt Joseph Hotel
Celebrating my birthday researching 
the Lost pyramids of ancient Egypt.

In the summer of 2008 I read some articles, they were so intriguing that I had to visit the site that they spoke about, something about a lost pyramid.

I like to plan my own excursion, bypassing any tourist guides, since I already have the experiences, and I tend to want to see more than what is allowed on the visits with guides.

If you are not familiar with a location, then I urgently recommend that you do use a guide.

Destroyed Pyramids


In the 1800 century some pyramids became the victim of a self proclaimed Egyptologist named Richard William Howard Vyse.

In his mind, he must have seen himself as some revolutionary man with great ideas, which he was fare from.

His ideas were so destructive, that some of the magnificent history of Egypt, will be gone forever.

After enjoying his military campaigns, and then moving into politics, this man suddenly ends up in Egypt...


with a load of dynamite...

Vyse would use dynamite trying to get into the Pyramids, because he believed that they would be filled with treasure...

Did you know that he even had his team drill into the Sphinx's back?

He suddenly had a strange idea of drilling into the Sphinx's back, but the drill got stuck around 8 meters into the Sphinx.

He wanted to use dynamite, but thankfully stopped himself, and so they left the drills that were stuck, and moved on to other destructive things.


The Lost Pyramid in Egypt
One of the Lost Pyramids of ancient Egypt.

Lost Pyramids


There are many pyramids that can be classified as being lost pyramids, and some of them have even been found again.

Some pyramid structures were abandoned for different reasons, either the king died before the pyramid was completed or the material didn't work.

There are many tales and theories of Pyramids that haven't been uncovered yet, even Mr. Edgar Cayce is noted to have talked a lot about Pyramids that are still lost to mankind.

It would be logical to think that the sand might hold more than we could imagine. 

It is well known that to go back in time, one must dig deeper into the ground. The ground level we have in our present day is much higher.

So for instance if you wanted to look 200 years back in time, then you might dig 5 - 10 meters down into the ground. This was not an exact measurements, but more to illustrate what I meant.


Pyramids that have not yet been found

I do suspect that there are a lot of pyramids which we haven't found yet, the desert sand can contain so much, and it is always in motion.


Just to direct some attention to other more recent discovery, which have 
baffled a lot of people.

Yonaguni Pyramid in Japan

The Yonagumi Monument Was discovered in 1987, by a shark observer, before that no one had ever mentioned this sctructure before.

A scientist named Masaaki Kimura, lead a team to investigate these gigantic underwater structures.

But there are those scientist that believe this is caused by natures own process...

Who was Djoser

4 comments
(also known as Zoser)

Status; Pharaoh. 
Ruling period; 2668-2649 B.C. 
Location; Saqqara. 

We have to go back to around 2668 before the birth of Christ, before we reach the reign of the pharaoh Djoser. 

In those days, one was given a birth name, until one became of age and chose another name, which is referred to as a Horus-name, so did Djoser follow his ancestor's path. 

He chose the name 'Netjeri-khet' which means 'Divine of the body.' We can presume that this name was the chosen one, because the name Djoser is found among the oldest of carvings, which would make him either a child or a very young boy, when those relief' were made. 

The start of his reign was filled with political inner turmoil, but he would change this through his reign. 

His name can be found as fare south as Aswan, he probably went further south than that; I base this idea upon the fact that more temples can be found further south, but they are hardly studied (because of inner conflict in those areas). 

 His dearest friend and highest official gave him eternal life through his mere visions. Imhotep created the great Step Pyramid complex at Saqqara, but complex seems too sallow a word for its creation. 

 Remarkable walls which seem like a lost generation of buildings, which kept away from both the circular shape and all the hieroglyphic upon their walls. 

A most noble mind must have reign in those days, because there are no pharaoh giving gesture to the gods upon the building or anything like that, it is anonyms in that way. 

 I cannot find that much about him in general, but rather more about the pyramid itself and theories about its purpose. 

Who Djoser really might have been in person, seems as big a mystery as his great vizier Imhotep. 

The carvings mostly show Djoser engaged in the Heb-sed festival, where he performs the Heb-sed ritual. Nor have there been found that many statues of him. 


The only part of Djoser' body that has been found, is his foot...


Even more remarkable is how suddenly such a huge and magnificent structure was build and with such complex attributes, which seem to have no deeper meaning, or do they? 
And there would never be another like it!
