Hi Brian,

Thanks, I try; I hope it is of some use. LOL… “spiritually stunted”, I don’t believe that in the least. We all have our journeys. I, like so many others, was raised in my parent’s religion and many things didn’t seem to make sense to me. I became what I called an “optimistic agnostic”; I wasn’t sure there was a Divine, but I sure hoped so.

This led me on a life-long search through comparative religions, spiritual philosophies, science, personal experiences, and all points in between to where I am today. (See my post to Sirfiroth on another thread for more details) For me, I have no doubt now that there is a Divine. Now my joy and awe is seeing how the Divine is so manifested in the universe through so many aspects. The bringing of Heaven and Earth together is the overriding theme and pattern I experience. Some call it the Axis Mundi, Immanentize the eschaton, squaring the circle (impossible in math), spiritualizing physicality, the chymical marriage, father sky and mother earth, son of God and son of man in one, Shatkona, just to mention a few. A concept that I find is in spiritual philosophies all over the globe, East and West, akin to a “Perennial Philosophy” in their symbols.

I think ancient Egypt that Graham Hancock and Robert Buaval write about at the time of Zep Tepi is an amazing cultural example of this concept. Zep Tepi, the “first time” that they write occurred at 10, 500 BC, a golden era when the gods walked on earth. An “axis mundi”, where Heaven and Earth come together was created at the Giza Plateau in an incredible “as above, so below” canvas.

My research leads me to conclude they even used a unit of measurement to reflect that and guide other to the inner journey. I will put some of the information below, the specifics, but it would be simpler to see more details and details from three article I wrote: Venture Inward, “The Cayce Cubit and the Kundalini- Correlations Between Cultures”, 10,500 BC: The Kundalini in the Sky, The Stars Above, the Great Pyramid Below: 10,400 BCE. They are on my website if you want to read them.

Part of my research that led me here was a Cayce reading about the construction of the Great Pyramid and other temples. It referenced a specific unit of measurement for the construction of 27 /1/2 inches.
the globe within the pyramid without, was four forty and four cubits (twenty-seven and one-half inches was a cubit then, or a mir [?] then). [GD's note: The pronunciation was MYRRH.] The height was four and twenty and forty and four mir [?], …(Reading 281-25)

Mainstream Egyptologist only recognize two Egyptian cubits, a royal cubit of 20.61 inches and a little cubit of 17.5 inches, but there is academic support for a third cubit of 27.5 inches.

Independent support for the Cayce cubit comes from the work of Livio C. Stecchini, a Harvard PhD science historian, who focused on ancient weights and measures. In his treatise, A History of Measures, Part II, he states:
More recently one has come to realize that a number of documents indicate the use of a unit equal to 1-1/3 royal cubit. In my opinion this mysterious unit is a cubit of two hybrid feet, that is, 37-1/3 natural basic fingers, 700mm. (27.5”) The name of this unit is nb, nebiu, which means “carrying” indicates that the original unit of length was the carrying yoke; In my opinion this mysterious unit is a cubit
My (Stecchini) explanation of the unit nebiu is supported by a neglected specimen of the
Metropolitan Museum of New York. This object is listed in the catalog as a cubit of 27-1/2 American inches

Then there are the hieroglyphs themselves that support a third cubit, an Aakhu Meh cubit
Aakhu Meh: The 3rd cubit in the Hieroglyphs, which translates as a spirit or light cubit.
Source: E.A. Wallis Budge, An Egyptian Hieroglyphic Dictionary Vol.1

Further, there is the root word Dr. Stecchini writes was used for this 27 ½ cubit, Nb; to unite or yoke together. This leads to an ancient Egyptian serpent deity, Nehebukau.
Nehebukau; He Who Unites the Kas', His name comes from the ancient Egyptian word for 'yoke together' or 'unite', nhb . He was a benevolent snake god who the Egyptians believed was one of the original primeval gods. He was linked to the sun god, swimming around in the primeval waters before creation, then bound to the sun god when time began. He was a god of protection who protected the pharaoh and all Egyptians, both in life and in the afterlife. He fed them with the milk of light.

He united the Ka (life force) and the Ba (individual soul) in this reunion they become the Akh (radiant light) becoming a celestial immortal being
Less often, he is shown as a two headed snake, with a head at each end of the reptilian body.
[www.touregypt.net] by Caroline Seawright

I think you can see how well this all fits together with Nb, Nehebukau he who unites the Ka and the Ba (Heaven and Earth) into a khu or aakhu, hence the aakhu cubit.

Even Mark Lehner’s research helps confirm this.
…the pyramid as a cosmic engine depended on the on the Egyptian concept of a person and the distinct phases of life and death called kheperu. These ‘transformations’ continued when the ka, the ba and the body, which had become separated at death interacted in the final transformation – becoming an akh, a glorified being of light, effective in the afterlife.
The Complete Pyramids by Mark Lehner 2008 p.20

Joining the stars, the king becomes an akh. Akh is often translated as ‘spirit’ or ‘spirit state’. It derives from the term for ‘radiant light’.
The reunion of the ba and ka is effected by the burial ritual, creating the final transformation of the deceased as an akh. As a member of the starry sky,
The Complete Pyramids by Mark Lehner 2008 p.24

Though Mark Lehner sees it as a burial ritual, I see it as an initiation process, representing bringing Heaven and Earth together in oneself. Even the length itself is tantalizing. Ancient civilizations were known to use body proportions for units of measurement; see Vitruvius the Roman engineer and Architect and the Vitruvian man that Da Vinci named after him. I theorize that this 27 ½ inch length was determined the length of the spine proportion, representing the concept of the kundalini and one’s higher self. Even the Giza Plateau (the Plateau of Rostua) in Ancient Egypt was dedicated to Osiris, whose symbol was the DJed, meaning Osiris’s spine.

Sigh, well Brian, I went a little far afield, but to me this all unites, yokes together, and that we can bring Heaven and Earth together, which seems to have been the goal from the beginning.

Blessings, don
