Well, even a broken clock is correct twice a day...
If you see something that looks like a key in a picture and you whittle a hunk of wood to 'look like it' - and it opens a door. Chances are pretty good that the item in the picture was a key.
Fuzzy tells me that my snake tube solution is bogus, because I designed it to create a glowing plasma snake in the tube. Did I create the laws of physics demonstrated by the phenomenon? No, I saw a key in a picture, whittled a copy of what I saw and it created a glowing snake in a tube.
Not bad for government work...
I had no idea it would actually work. I did not figure out how it worked, until after I got it to work.
Talk about 'Mad Science'.
The Egyptologist were able to decipher hieroglyphics because the Rosetta Stone had a known language (Greek) side by side with an unknown language (Hieroglyphics).
At the Dendera Temple, we have a similar situation.
Only here, the known is turning out to be the technology in the images and the unknown is turning out to be the true interpretation of the story being told in the hieroglyphics.
Where phrases like, 'Words Spoken' become 'Signals/Connections Sent', and 'Eternal' become 'Continuously Running'.
Dendera may well turn out to be the Rosetta Stone of Ancient Egyptian Technology...
If the key fits... (or in this case, the lotus flower produces a glowing snake)
It reminds me of the story of General Patton, after he took the city of Palermo, during the Sicily Campaign, against the explicit orders of his commander - General Alexander.
Patton's aid, Colonel Cod, gets a dispatch from Alexander that reads, 'I am receiving word that you are moving west. Stop! Go no further than Agrigento'.
Patton turns to Cod and says, 'you send him a message Code, ask him if he wants me to give it back'.
