Hey Ron Hmm...having kinda missed you folk over the months - all because EVERYONE gave me some good impetus to try a few things a little bit further (I'm still in some kinda perpetual dream, mind you) - I do have to play in here some more because I still haven't gotten my harshness outta me...and I so do need to. Brad sets us up with what we all perceive as reality, and it was fun and not f

What the? Safe gun handling for women...in Oz?... You do know that all us guys will be out of work, considering women are not only better shots but also aim true or off - you don't shoot koalas, having mistaken them for 'It's attacking! Shoot!!!' Damn drop-bears. I know...the poor thing had a heart-attack and fell...but what else can we shoot when hoop-snakes are too fast! Ah! We can

...and maybe adding some too. For the years surrounding the purported time of Khufu, March 2 and November 20 are the dates when the Sun shines down the upper south shaft, giving 264 days total from one to the other. What this alludes to is the dates of conception and birth of Khufu, memorialised in his temple. In 2556BCE the Moon will be rising when the Sun hits midday, with the Moon nearly

Lot's of electrical and chemical actions and reactions surrounding all these atoms that are us.

Ah BC...an equinox will give you equal time for day and night. Damn shame that an hour before sunrise and an hour after sunset, there is light in the sky...all the way to rise and set...where before and after that one hour is pure night and no sun light to intrude...such is the way our planet is formed and how we rotate.

Time to come back down to Earth and be a little easier with your words.

Yes Susan, you did give up as much as you say you did, but curiosity keeps you wondering what the heck it is that I am on about because I rarely blatantly say what it is that I am on about...while I quite frankly say what it is that I am on about.

Hey there PB Caught your post on the way out of here, and thought I'd make a comment. I have found that the space is already there and it only matters how I appreciate it for what it gives over, not just to or for me but to whatever else is there at the time. I like the river I go to, and the fish and ducks that come to play with me when I go down there. Most times I just go and the fish

Hi BC Another way of possibly looking at such a statement - the 12 and 24 - plays with Mercator Projection. That is defined by the wonder of having spherical observation projected upon 2D presentation, where the horizontal 360deg relates to the vertical 180deg, giving a perfect square incorporating 360deg all over...if you realize how the two ends of the horizontal are actually the same mer

Hi BC Very good, and I'll raise you a couple of images that you've probably seen before, and describe them again. 1/7 x 360 = 51.4285714deg Also, 1/14 x 720 = the same You have to have the 5 and 1 added together though...I don't know the exact reason why but it works that way.

Hey BC Just for a small note... The 14 parts of Osiris may represent the 14 hours of night on the winter solstice. Then there is the southern shaft of the upper chamber of Khufu's pyramid that Petrie states as having the sun shine down it twice per year at noon...some 267 (?) days apart...the length of time for a child to go from conception/last day of menstruation to birth.

Hi Fuzzy Right at this moment I am wearing work clothes as I finished work an hour ago, ran some errands, and am now enjoying a bubbly beer at the local as I ride their wifi and have a few smokes until a couple of mates turn up and we play cribbage for a couple of hours. This is my usual Thursday morning. It's a habit. Happenstance had me walk in with an uncle and aunt and we chatted about

I kind of came to the acceptance that just living life was a little important these past many months since my little foray in here, so didn't think I had much to say besides a post here and there. I just chilled out...spent a bulk of time sitting back and letting things mostly take me where things wanted to go; energetic work 5 or 6 mornings a week; lots of time spent with friends; and experie

Apologies for this. The main alignment descends upon the hawk-topped sword, linking up through Sagittarius. Going through Capricorn and touching the side of Cancer, and through Pisces and Orion are seemingly more important alignments, due to there being some glyphs outside the disc of the DZ. What if the supporting figures of the disc, with their hands coming together, are for the major cel

Hi BC The coloured lines start and finish as northern and southern celestial points which can be seen by the abbreviations: SSGP = southern super galactic point, etc as mentioned in previous post. Now, it is possible that the ancients could track the ecliptic points and see just when the northern one does get to its lowest culmination above the horizon, resting there for a few years where 2

If you actually read the actual words and the between-the-lines words of many academics in their analyses of their observations on 'ancient things' that such as you and I and so many others try to understand, you will find Scott is just the same as you.

Hi Ron Mate, you still talk as a lecturer where everyone in your class knows what you mean, but some might be a new student and it may take them months or years to decipher you. Luckily for me I do know what you are actually saying but my mate over here is clueless. She thought you were describing a 'Star Wars' plot of a movie. She now kinda knows what you mean because I broke it down fo

"During the War the planes were of the good and the bad varieties, but even then I know that I wanted to see them. In my mid-childhood, if I heard the sound of a plane, even if we were not allowed to get up from a meal table, I would plead to be allowed to go and look.

A little playfulness on my part for the now, due to the impossibility of the ancients knowing such things. 213BCE, November 18, at a certain time because of the view it presents. The northern ecliptic centre point has reached its lowest culmination above the horizon on that point’s 100,000 year wander in the sky as viewed from Earth...well, the Dendera Temple to be precise for the view.

Hey Doc Yes, a very interesting topic this, and I do so like the Aboriginal stories about the 'Dreamtime', their song lines to do with making the landscape mimic star patterns, and what each star represents when folk journey to particular locations on the ground. One interesting point about 'dark spaces' between stars, but taken over to some famous Japanese garden: for centuries, folk visit

Hi BC Yeah, I'm combing through several papers at once, with a more discerning eye this time. It seems that there is no real agreement on which glyphs mean which stars when it comes to the outer band of glyphs. And there is some contention on whether some constellation/asterism glyphs are actually in their correct locations as some folk 'think' that mistakes have been made with the DZ. Sure

Thanks for the link, BC. I cruised through it but will give it a better read later. For the moment though, is this analysis any better or worse than "The Celestial River: Identifying the Ancient Egyptian Constellations, by Alessandro Berio " ? here Or is your link yet another, like Berio's, interpretation of such things? As I wrote, there are quite a few and they all have their

Comparing the best orientation of the celestial scene to the circular Dendera Zodiac, I came to the conclusion that November 20, 299BCE looks to be best fit. I evaluated earlier years up until 1000BCE and found another possibility in year 916BCE but the Sun is out of position according to the Dendera image. The planets were pretty good though. Years closer to 1BCE had no correlating celestial sce

Thanks doc. The next point was how natural the craniums are in their forms...sure, there are skulls that definitely show binding or boarding to extend them, but they certainly show a deformity being pressured upon the cranium during its early stages of growth. Akhenaten's family scene shows the kids with no binding whatsoever, so that would be an indication of natural skull formation. Macroenc

Hey Warwick Ah, but it's not just the stars to play with, is it...it's also correlations to other things like the migratory habits of fauna and all manner of creatures when certain celestial objects are in certain places; and the familiarity of one's lands, both near and far, where all manner of sites can be traced in the stars; and what stage flora is in in their lifecycles which offer all ma

Too true there, Warwick. And funnily enough, I had a bit of fun with the Yin Yang many years ago on the Science Board...what it would look like as 3D rather than 2D. As an x-ray presentation, rotating the form offered up some interesting imagery from one of my models of it. Besides the point of this though...
