Secret of Anubis - Ancient Astronomy
This Blog started 19. September 2008

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.

Scorpion's mace head and Narmer's Palette


James E. Quibell and Frederick W. Green was investigating the temple of Horus at Hierakonpolis between 1897-1898, when they found Pharaoh Scorpion's mace head.

In a pit labeled 'Main deposit' between two walls, they found Scorpion's mace head which can be seen at the start of this Book - among the first chapters, where Scorpion's name is written. 

The Palette of Narmer was also found in that deposit.

Narmer and Scorpion lived before the great Pyramid builders, hereby making it very likely that their religious belief was as the later Pyramid builders, in that they were Star Worshippers.
This is an exclusive insight and observation of Scorpion's mace head and Narmer's palette.

Crypt Underneath Dendera Temple

0 comments

Beneath the sand, among the walls, under 
the temple floor you'll find secret crypts.
In Abydos, in Karnak, in Kom-Ombo 
and everywhere else, many have stood
 untouched by any man, even till this very day.

The video clip below, is one of such chambers, that is now open to the public. You are walking with me on my first time there, seeing some of what I saw...


Before you watch it, I would like to give some pointers, so that you have an idea of what your watching.

For me it seemed like a mixed chamber, very cryptic.. In the clip you are taking down one corridor, which lies underneath Dendera temple, and you have to crawl to get into the small chamber, still not easy in a dress *lol

The walls are absolutely beautiful, a rounded 3D effect, that makes them look smooth. 



Dendera temple

is an ancient Egyptian temple, that have been rebuild by the ancient Greeks, or should we say, they changed it to fit their nature.

So what you are really looking at, is the Greeks version of the ancient Egyptian story and perception. For me it seems very obvious that the Greeks got some things wrong, or their minds were on the wrong track to capture the ancient Egyptian perception.




This temple is specifically about the stars, revealing both the ancient Egyptian ideas, as well as the later Greeks version. 

But...

The crypt underneath the temple 

is an intriguing part to the temple, especially considering the relief's. When I look at the relief's alone, in the crypt, it's easy for me to see, that it is a kind of birth chamber. Normally the ancient Egyptian would build a birth house on ground level, as they also did at Dendera temple.

But the crypt is in one end filled with the traditional birth scenes of the gods, yet in the other end everything becomes so puzzling...

As you will see in this video!

Video clip




At the top of this article you were able to see a picture of one of the scenes in the video. At first glance it might seem like an odd image, and there are some different views on it. 

The standard answer people give, is that it is a necklace, which was used in ritual ceremonies. Others will simply say, that it is not determined yet. 

 Now here is what I see..
For me it is a mythological story wrapped inside an image. Making it resemble a necklace is both appropriated, but also interestingly misleading in some sense. 


I also see the overall image as a necklace with the normal Hathor musical instrument, but as soon as I look a little closer, I see much more... 

You are looking at a very cleaver illustration of the cosmos or should I say a connection to the cosmos... You have the 4 pillars (drawn in light with a glow) at one side you see the Moon sailing across in his boat (drawn in light blue). 

The 4 pillars in this case, are the Hathor instruments, which my eyes seem to divided into smaller sections. The pillar itself, with the head upon it, could be seen as a part by itself. The face itself regularly means 'her' in ancient Egypt, and it belongs to the ancient mythology of the cosmos.  

The part above these her-pillars could be seen as gates, or a chamber of some sort... Where something is being poured into them...




When is Denderah Temple open?
Where is the temple located?
Opening hours:
I would always recommend looking at six in the early evening, as the closing time. The opening hours fit the seasonal weather pretty good, meaning, when dark approaches, so does the gates close.

Location: Near modern Qena

    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.

    EGYPT: Clip Nr.01 - Part One

     
    See two short video clips, from Karima’s private archive. 
    Turn of the lights around you, and turn up for the volume, for a more satisfying experience. 
    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...
