Hi All,

In proposing that earth was once home to an equatorial ring system and this was deified as the goddess Hathor research has naturally led me to study Saturn’s rings to see if I could draw any parallels between certain ‘ring’ phenomena that may have been observed within earth’s rings, and the possibly of this being represented in Egyptian art and its religion.

Saturn’s Spokes

"The spokes appear dark in backscattered light, and bright in forward-scattered light. It is assumed that they are microscopic dust particles that have levitated away from the ring plane and that they are connected to electromagnetic interactions, as they rotate almost synchronously with the magnetosphere of Saturn. However, the precise mechanism generating the spokes is still unknown" [en.wikipedia.org]



A photo depicting Saturn’s shadowy ‘Spokes’

A video of Saturn’s spokes can also be found here.

Taking the supposition earth was indeed surrounded by a ring of debris only a few thousand years ago, is it possible similar shadowy Spokes were observed amongst earth’s rings? I believe so.

If I could draw your attention to the ‘squatting figures’ atop of the following funerary papyrus and the images below. These kneeling figures feature prominently in Egyptian art especially in regards to the afterlife. There are hundreds of such images in Faulkner’s BOD. They also adorn numerous tomb walls, normally taking position on the top registrar of a side wall adjoining starry night ceilings (location important). Nefertari’s tomb would be a good example.






I consider such images to be unusual, an unnatural way to draw kneeling figures.

This link reveals the Egyptians were quite capable of drawing ‘proper’ kneeling figures [www.flickr.com] so, where and how did such a ubiquitous image originate?

If we make comparisons between the NASA photo (& Video) and the Egyptian figures, the similarity is quite striking, to much to be a coincidence.

I believe these distinctly odd shaped figures came about as a direct result of physical observations of Saturn-like spokes within earth's rings (Hathor). Even down to the slightly curved bits at the base of the figures – these representing a curved connection to celestial rings.

Although the majority of Egyptians were illiterate we have assume they understood the meaning of the above Judgement Hall scenes and the gods contained within. So, if you believe I am merely tealeaf reading then the question has to be - where, if not from observable phenomenon did such images originate?
