Barbelo writes “I know that you are trying to tie Sumeria into Giza.

Without boat pits we would have no knowledge of boats.

The boat pits exist in a context.

If the southern boats were not covered over by 16 ton blocks then they would have been pillaged just like the missing boats in the inferior eastern pits.

The timeline is what is important.

That's why I suggested that you start with the southern boats and try to establish just when the eastern pits were excavated, and work from there.”


Barbelo, I rarely begin a sentence with ‘I know’, particularly when it comes to another person’s motives. With passing time, I’ve become increasingly aware that other peoples’ motives can be the greatest mystery of all. It has never been my ‘intention’ to tie the Sumerian language to Egypt and it might surprise you to know that I don’t know what or where Sumer was.

I have followed the symbols and, I must add, the mountain of groundwork done by others to decipher them. I’m not trying to find something that isn’t there and I did not set out to establish a time line. I’m most certainly not going to get sucked into Khufu pros and cons. The following is a very relevant section from the introduction of my explanatory book that I hope to finish very soon. I’m also hoping that it will serve to further confirm the veracity of my re-translation (published in 2017) of The Instructions of Shuruppak, which is among the oldest texts that we have in the world today and mightily important:

“I have no personal agenda with regard to history other than to find the truth by going back and picking up the thread at the oldest possible source. The result is not the expression of personal opinion or cultural, religious beliefs, but of the consultation of the Sumerian symbols themselves. They have enough to say without forcing and twisting. Coaxing is all it takes.”

If you don’t understand why I’m interested in the orientation of that particular 'inferior'(!) boat pit, fine. Not a problem. I fully understand that you think my interest should lie elsewhere, but right now it doesn’t.

On the subject of your message titled ‘Heliopolis’ and the link that you’ve posted there to your Google maps, I find it impossible to tell if they demonstrate a direct line from the causeway/boat pit orientation to an edifice in Heliopolis or not. Maybe it’s me…

You wrote above it “The extension of the line from Temple 2 to Temple 3 and further to the Obelisk of Sesostris I in Heliopolis is remarkably straight, giving further weight to the nexus between the center of Sun worship and the temple and by association, the causeway. “

Could you clarify, please? Thanks.

Madeleine
