Hi Hendrik Ah, the near-eternal search for what myths and legends actually mean. Do the two lands mean the celestial and terrestrial? Or are they purely terrestrial? Do they represent some fable to describe celestial areas where characters brought forth from celestial bodies wander through those areas? Or is it about an ancient memory of folk who lived and died? Or something else?… I could

I don't mind disagreement at all, but it has to be based on something tangible rather than what someone thinks as I too am thinking. You may think that the entrance feature doesn't have a combined glyph of mountain and horizon and foreign land, but that is what you think. A battle of thoughts just means what evidence do each of us have to support ourselves. For what I ask in this topic concern

I had a quick scan through your work and will read it properly later. For the moment though... Can we agree that the Egyptian’s had several layers of creation? From the actual emergence of Atum – or any other name the god is known by – to the emergence of the platform of existence in the form of the great watery abyss known as Nu. Khepera - and alternate variations of that name – is seemingly

Warwick, you can't see the forest for the trees. I bet you skipped right over this . It's just the second post I made in this topic and expresses where I am coming from quite well, I think. Anyway, thanks for doing nothing at all with the topic...even now...it just goes to show how some of you guys have nothing better to do than go around stamping your feet down upon the playgrounds of others

The Australian Aborigines have numerous stories about the sky and many of its inhabitants, all doing normal or odd things that give meaning to what the stars are doing in their particular locations and how they got there. For Song Lines, when a certain constellation - of their own - appears at a certain position, a story is told about that constellation and all the stars that are the constella

Lee, folk may not read what you invest your time in offering when you act like a bit of a twat. Sheesh, quite the few twatty remarks just in this topic, which meant I wasn't going to waste my time on your links. But in saying that, my interest in early influencers of the ancient Egyptians has just started to garner strength after several other avenues of playing with their stuff came to certai

A sample image of Egyptian constellations according to Stellarium, 4808BCE April 29 at midday. Orange line is ecliptic; blue line is celestial equator; horizontal green line is horizon, all viewed from Cairo – for this one anyways. Mintaka is upon the southern meridian at this moment. In Madeleine’s topic about the three boat pits on the east-side of the pyramid, I posted a similar image

An excerpt from an article DNA discovery reveals genetic history of ancient Egyptians "Publishing its findings in Nature Communications, the study concluded that preserved remains found in Abusir-el Meleq, Middle Egypt, were closest genetic relatives of Neolithic and Bronze Age populations from the Near East, Anatolia and Eastern Mediterranean Europeans."

Well, considering north and south are quite important on a few layers of meaning, then the third angled-pit adds in something that today's folk would be hard pressed to understand. It would take some understanding of beliefs and applications of beliefs, as well as terrestrial and celestial alignments in order to define what the third pit means. Missing boats is a hazard in allocating a bow-poi

From something I found elsewhere to do with my Opus Mundialis Rostau stuff, Mintaka appears to be quite the star. I'll find where I had that as important and get back to you.

Ah lol. Have you ever read the field reports from GT? I especially like where mention of a grotto is made, and several small niches cut into the walls of it, and amidst the accumulation of soil on the floor, one little gnomen was found, teardrop shaped, with the form of a bull carved into it. The size of it meant it sat in the divots atop the pillars with all those divots in them, used t

Gotta have a starter-post. You should have read the next one...here's an excerpt: "The biggest problem for us about the ancient Egyptian civilisation is where did they get their beliefs and abilities from?

How can a theory be up the creek when it questions where the folk who influenced Egypt's transformation came from? Where oh where have you defined an answer to that? Giving your thoughts about the entrance feature and what it means is beside the point of the topic. You have an observation and belief about the feature and I also, and while we both came to our conclusions from a combination o

And you're punching above your weight...nice continued postulations about what may have been in front of the feature, especially about a mechanism to move a perfectly weighted door that only needed a touch in the right place. How does one get to the winch to operate it? Well, keep playing with other than the topic of where folk came from who influenced an endemic culture into grandness. Muc

No, I wasn't. I don't read the interactions between other posters unless they are pointed out to me that I should read them. I just read what folk respond to me. Implicitly. Now that you have made a post to me, I shall read it and those it pertains to and get back to you. Thanks

It seems the trick between 'builders' and 'planners/architects' is that one doesn't know the whys and the other doesn't know the hows. There's always a middleman to translate between them, and Egyptology tries very hard to be that middleman when it comes to remnants of things that folk try to de-engineer in order to re-engineer. Our minds love a puzzle, no matter in what form that puzzle prese

The following are a couple of extracts from a paper: Sulba Sutras Applied Geometry, by John Price. I quote them because of what they define, which are quite expressive and do have relevance to what cloaks the pyramid. Quote1.2.3 Deeper significance Sanskrit is a rich language full of subtle nuances. Words can have quite different meanings because of their context and, in any case, frequent

Is there any chance that the personification of Osiris etc in being Orion means when Orion is standing upright above the horizon? It is within the circle of the Milky Way, offering two waterways to cross, these attended by 'Prow' and 'Boat' constellations.

Hey Sam I had to laugh, mate. Yeah, that's a good one!

But that's not focusing on there being a 'glyph' and what it represents. Putting it as post-construction and utilitarian still needs to identify what it is doing. And no, I won't ask you for proof of it being post-construction because that just means the feature itself, as the blocks in front of it support there having been further gable blocks surrounding an area directly in front of the feature

Hi there I caught your first and last posts, and hopefully can add something. "Do you think there is a philosophical method, a religious method, or an artistic method to determine independently verifiable facts and information in those subjects?

So where does the title of the pyramid come from? Ahket Khufu. The Shining Horizon of Khufu. Two mounds and a disc between them in the image. A pyramid-form to the left side, and a disc between it and the closest mound...and at a stretch, three 'mounds' whose hieroglyph is... Who recorded the title of the pyramid?

“There used to be an ancient "sacred" prime-Meridian(not Greenwich). We need to take a look at isopsephy/gematria and sacred geometry. “ Any prime meridian would be reliant upon a country’s centre-point for observations of astronomical proceedings. For such as Gobekli Tepe, that location would be considered the prime meridian because all astronomical observations are made from there,

What kind of post did you just make...and you ask me about verification of things I write about. The feature is above the entrance to the pyramid, and it indicates something used in hieroglyphics, if not an entire scene from Egyptian beliefs and knowledge.

"There is no disk in the GP entrance carving" Have a better look at the image posted or find better images, as yes there are discs/partial discs (in the space provided for them) - which are quite well made. And I did offer up 'horizon' does have the disc between the mounds of 'mountain', so on that we agree for what horizon and mountain look like as glyphs. "The Hasan Dagi ca
