Secrets of Ancient Egypt: tutankhamun
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 Mysterious Disappearance of Queen Nefertiti

Theories of Nefertiti's Disappearance

She was considered the most beautiful woman of her time, and she would prove herself to be much more than yet another pretty face. Queen Nefertiti was a very strong woman and her background is as mysterious as her being.

Mysterious Disappearance of Queen Nefertiti.

Where to locate Queen Nefertiti in ancient Egyptian History

Queen Nefertiti was married to Akhenaton (Amenhotep IV) whom is said to be the father of Tutankhamun which means that she was Tutankhamuns stepmother.

As she was the wife of Akhenaton whom ruled Egypt between 1350 and 1334 B.C. (Before Christ), we can place her to pretty much to the same time between 1350 and 1334 B.C.

Queen Nefertiti was born around 100 years after the Great Pharaoh/Queen Hatshepsut and 100 years before the days of Seti I and his son Ramesses II.

If I had to explain how Queen Nefertiti and Akhenaton changed the ancient Egyptian world, this would become a book post. But you most probably already know about the scope of the story, namely they moved the capital and changed the religion, which off course caused a lot of problems for the priest, pretty much making them unemployed.

This is not a post detailing the events that happened, but I do suspect that these events were exactly the reason for what happened next.

Theories of the Disappearance of queen Hatshepsut

A big and quite interesting question to pose in regards to Queen Nefertiti and her husband Akhenaton is, why did they change things so radically? Akhenaton seems to have followed the old ways as a child, then suddenly everything flips 180 degrees.

Queen Nefertiti just stops being mentioned from the year 13 in Akhenaton's rule, and now their temples are battered ruins. There are so many questions about this family, especially from Akhenaton's time and onwards in their kingdom.

There are some theories that she is the pharaoh Smenkhare, but many seem to disagree on this point, and since no real evidence so fare proves one or the other, this must be left open to future debates.

It is most logical that she has died, but under what circumstance is unknown.

Personal note:

In the Boston museum there exists a block of stone with a relief of Nefertiti, but it is quite different that other reliefs. On it we see Queen Nefertiti depicted in a large boat, with her own image at the end of some big paddles. 

Queen Nefertiti is seen standing in the Pharaohs position smiting a captive, which we normally see in regards to the pharaohs wars. In the relief she shows a clear war like nature, but I have never seen Akhenaton in such a pose. 

Their roles seem to have been reversed, in that Akhenaton seems more feminine like and Queen Nefertiti seems very masculine in her nature.

This could be proof of what kind of fate she might have had. She defiantly angered a lot of priests, whom were used to things in a different manner. 

Her own father's position as Vizier could also have added to the conflict between the kingdom and the priesthood. It is very obvious that the priests didn't care for her, because there is not a lot of her personal things found, and those that are found in others graves, indicating a clear lack of interest in keeping her and her things together, which was essential for the afterlife in those days.

I know that there was a lot that I did not mention, because as I said that would be equal to a books length. I simply try to give you information that is not mentioned even thou its true, let's call it a different angle on that ancient history, than the regular guide book.

Coffin of Tutankhamun


Coffin of Tutankhamun

If you ever visit Cairo museum, then you must check out the Tutankhamun section especially the outer coffin of Tutankhamun. 

Most people are normally more attracted to the famous mask of Tutankhamun, I went the completely different way.

I found myself most attracted to the outer coffin of Tutankhamun, which by themselves are a remarkable achievement.
Tutankhamuns outer coffin by karima

Do you know what Tutankhamun means?

His name was Tut-ankh-amun
(Note: The pharaohs of ancient Egypt had many names, reflecting different sides to that specific pharaoh (king). Tutankhamun, was also known under his birth name of Tut-ankh-amen (amen was from his fathers days, this would take several books by itself to explain)).

Tut - This part I find rather interesting, because it is not as straight forward to translate.

In this case it means Image of Amen, Image of Atem.

Ankh - The ankh was the symbol of life.

Amun - Amon was one of the great gods (in some periods in time he was the greatest god, depending on the priesthood. Tut-ankh-amun live in what is today known as Luxor, which was a centre for the Amon priesthood).

The word Amun is translated to mean 'what is hidden,' 'what is not seen,' 'what cannot be seen' in short 'hidden'

Tut - Ankh - Amun

The image of Amen - Life - is what is hidden
The image of Atem - Life - is what cannot be seen

other version - made by me (and generally accepted)

Amen - is life - and it remains hidden
The image of Amun - is life - and he remains unseen
The life - of Amen - cannot be seen

A secret Revealed

One could also read his name like this

The image of Amen is the life of Jupiter
The Moon - life - Jupiter (if we read Tut as Thoth)

Coffin of Tutankhamun

The pictures above shows you a little bit of the outer coffin of  the boy king. 

The outer coffin of Tutankhamun was decorated with gold leafs that enhance the strange details upon the coffin.

I classify them as unidentified beings, because their nature is still unknown. One thing I do know for curtain is that these beings belong to the journey of the soul, hereby linking them directly to the stars. The stars will always be the centre of the ancient Egyptian religion, both if you follow the older gods or the Osiris path.

The outer coffin of Tutankhamun is filled with these mysterious beings.

I have always thought that Tutankhamun was a patchy of the events happening between Akhenatons rule and the priest's opposition.
