Which texts? We (Domingo, Shocch, myself, others) think it is possible, even probable that it has indeed been totally recarved, maybe in the very distant (predynastic?) past. because it is drastically out of proportion to the body, and the AE were masters of proportion. The Sphinx is disproportionate to a naturally rendered Lion, however there could have been good reason for this, as Osiris i

Yes...a Grain Goddess, i noted such here; There is an interesting comparison that can be made between the 'Sothic triangle' and the cone shaped bread offerings often seen illustrated, as in the example left from Karnak, and right were Sopdu is offered such in a cup. This will be derivative of the fact the Isis-Sopdet was Goddess of grain/bread, and a great agricultural Deity, with Sah-Osiri

I could see it having some usage as a gnomon but not a scared cow, the art of the period depicts cattle in a fairly naturalistic manner, certainly recognisable as such. Morph.

All the same, central Africa as the mother land and as one free from scouring by the ice remains the oldest and therefore richest Dreamtime landscape - a fact that has yet to be fully explored. Yes, i like the phraseology regarding Dreamitime... Morph.

The 17,000 years ago based on the Vernal entry of Libra is pure fantasy. Yes he cites Dupuis for that, but as i said Libra being in a significant position due East at the vernal Equinox is fine, though this is at sunset not sunrise, with this reversed in Autumn, so deduct half a precession cycle of some 12,500 years and he'd have come up with a date of around 4,500 years from his time. I'll

It is a great tract, his approach is the foundation of what constitutes the modern approach to history/Theology. It is interesting though that later Theosophy which so much influenced early Egyptology took a completely opposite outlook to this de-mystification, in creating a romanticized scenario. Volney wouldn't have cared what race first conjectured mystical-astronomy as he hardly had any d

The assumption that Volney made regarding the date for the origins of Astronomy in the region was to take this from when Libra was the sign of the Vernal Equinox, hence his statement; Should it be asked at what epoch this system took its birth, we shall answer on the testimony of the monuments of astronomy itself; that its principles appear with certainty to have been established about sevente

Absolutely, Volney is a must read... "Aid us then in this labyrinth, where the human race has wandered for so many ages; help us to dissipate the illusion of so many prejudices and vicious habits. Amid the shock of so many opinions which dispute for our acceptance, assist us in discovering the proper and distinctive character of truth. Let us this day terminate the long combat with error.

Well maybe, certainly the understandings involved in the planning of Washingron DC owed everything to Volney, reflecting the knowledge of the Masonic Salons of his day....understandings which degenerated. Morph

So it turns out Constantin Volney was correct writing at the time of the French Revolution, regarding ancient astronomy developing around the upper Nile by black people, this of course before the Theosophists and the Great White Masters, he also had a radically differant outlook than those mystagogues regarding whether this constituted advanced understanding, as well as having a better grasp of t

The Ba is the immortal spirit, that is conciousness in itself, much greater than the conciousness of a single individual, it is the all-spirit...and is immortal. The Ka was the essence of the individual, neither spirit or physical, rather genetic pattern, an abstraction in it's own right, which could potentialy be passed on ad infinitum. Whilst the Egyptians obviously didn't study genetics, they

I couldn't make any specific suggestion as I don't know anything about you, but in general terms I'd say there's a part of you that realises that you are in a spiritual sense somehow vunerable and threatened, and is prompting you to face the issue...but that's obviously a simplistic sweeping statement.

All of the 'old models' were limited in the sense that they were 'cardboard characters' forever stuck with basic attributes and only likely to add to them if some other Deities qualities became considered less important and there was mergance of the also rans, which happened a lot with Osiris, who by the Late Period was a composite of many a failed Deity...

I don;t think mimicry as such, just that readily observable facets of nature, including regeneration, had long and extensively been studied in the abstract and correlated with aspects of the human form and nature in terms of Deities, even to the extent of derivative geometry, numerics, and proportionalism.
