2013: Thoth, the Great God of Science and Writing

The Moon God “…Researchers of the ancient Egyptian calendar agree that the solar calendar of 360 + 5 days was not the first prehistoric calendar of that land. This ‘civil’ or secular calendar was introduced only after the start of dynastic rule in Egypt, i.e., after 3100 BC; according to Richard A. Parker (The Calendars of the Ancient Egyptians) it took place circa 2800 BC ‘probably for administrative and fiscal purposes’. This civil calendar supplanted, or perhaps supplemented at first, the ‘sacred’ calendar of old. In the words of the Encyclopaedia Brittanica, ‘the ancient Egyptians originally employed a calendar based on the Moon’. According to R. A. Parker (Ancient Egyptian Astronomy), that earlier calendar was, ‘like that of all ancient peoples’, a calendar of twelve lunar months plus a thirteenth intercalary month that kept the seasons in place.” – Zecharia Sitchin, When Time Began “…the Egyptians and the Sumerian […] Read More

HORUS, ANUBIS, OSIRIS, & THOTH

HORUS (Hor, Heru, Her) Symbols: hawk/falcon, bull, Double Crown, Winged Disk, Udjat, Sphinx, weapons, iron, blacksmiths Cult Center: Edfu, Buto and Heliopolis Myths: Isis and Osiris The falcon-headed god, the kings of Egypt associated themselves with Horus. Horus was among the most important gods of Egypt, particularly because the Pharaoh was supposed to be his earthly embodiment. Kings would eventually take the name of Horus as one of their own. At the same time, the Pharaohs were the followers of Re and so Horus became associated with the sun as well. To the people, this solar deity became identified as the son of Osiris. Attempts to resolve the conflicts between these different gods in different parts of Egypt resulted in at least fifteen distinct forms of Horus. They can be divided fairly easily into two groups, solar and Osirian, based on the parentage of the particular form of Horus. […] Read More

Ancient Magic In Modern Science

Paulthier, the French Indianist, may, or may not, be taxed with too much enthusiasm when saying that India appears before him as the grand and primitive focus of human thought, whose steady flame has ended by communicating itself to, and setting on fire the whole ancient world1 – yet, he is right in his statement. It is Aryan metaphysics2 that have led the mind to occult knowledge – the oldest and the mother science of all, since it contains within itself all the other sciences. And it is occultism – the synthesis of all the discoveries in nature and, chiefly, of the psychic potency within and beyond every physical atom of matter – that has been the primitive bond that has cemented into one cornerstone the foundations of all the religions of antiquity. The primitive spark has set on fire every nation, truly, and Magic underlies now every national […] Read More

2000?: Technical Arts Related To Alchemy in Old Egypt

One of the oldest civilizations all over the world was that of ancient Egypt, which emerges from pre-history into the period of more or less precise chronological record at a date perhaps not far removed from 3400 B.C. This highly developed civilization endured for over 3,000 years, during which it spread its influence far and wide; some archaeologists, indeed, claim to see in all other civilizations the signs of an Egyptian origin. However this may be, it is universally agreed that in technical arts Egyptian workers pointed the way to the rest of the world, and it is to them that we must turn for the first discovery of those facts that make chemistry possible. Of course, our knowledge of the very earliest developments of chemical arts is dependent upon the discovery of products as far as some 3000 years B.C. tin bronzes were made. Primitive arts that provide […] Read More

1852: The Lost Arts, A lecture, by Wendell Phillips,Esq

NEW YORK TIMES, December 2, 1852 Mr. Phillips began by buttering up his audience a bit: “perhaps the most popular feature in the character of our country is self conceit. Not many years ago we voted ourselves the most enlightened nation on the face of the earth, and we yet believe we are the “model republic”. And so afraid were we that this idea would die out, that we set apart some days in the year to keep up the national feeling. And this is not confined to us. It is the characteristic idea of the age.” The problem that Mr. Phillips begins with is a problem for every age and certainly for today. We have voluminous records and evidence from the past that are mostly disregarded because we don’t believe that peoples of the past were sophisticated enough to have made accurate reports. If the world stands, this […] Read More
