An interesting find in Egypt
Permalink  
 


It just gets more interesting. Symmetry is of prime importance in ancient Egyptian architecture and styling, so the anomalous stone is really not acceptable as far as I am concerned.

Now anyone of a certain age that read MAD magazine will remember the last page and the fun you had in folding it to see the hidden picture....so....I tried that with the brooch with some extremely interesting results.

I cannot show you, you need to try this for yourself, print out the image.

1. Assume there is a hidden message in it

2. Match the stone that is out of sequence i.e  after stone number 10 so that they now go in sequence orange/blue

3. Line up from the end of stone 4 and stone 10 to the end of the two gold bits under the eye picture in the image below and then to the outer edges of the gold curved horn on each side of the three figures

4. Fold from the appropriate stone to the end of the gold and each side of the horn and pull the pieces together to get the overall image.

I will scan and paste my image in the next few days, but I want to give you a chance to see this for yourself. Bear in mind that you need to buckle it a bit as it seems that the brooch is not completely flat as it may have been damaged and slighlty bent (I will show you proof of this) which means you must twist the paper to get everything to line up.

Once it does, it makes and interesting statement.

If you can do this with the image without printing it out I salute you and wish I had you skills. If you can please post the image you get here.

Hii Timewarp, you raise an interesting point and considering the age of the Moon compared to Earth there is a possibility it could once have been a planet in it's own right (small as it is). The article states the scientific considerations for planet status, but it shows 13 planetary bodies in our solar system whether they be 'dwarf' or not. Sitchin wrote a book called the 12th Planet which refers to Niburu in ancient Sumerian texts if I am not wrong, I need to check,but did that mean they knew there were 12 planets in our system ? If so, is the strangely coloured out of sync stone in the brooch meant to represent a planet different in some way from other planets in the system (perhaps due to it's strange orbit) and if it is placed at 4th planet position is it between us and Mars....so many unanswered questions ! When I have time this investigation will cntinue....

This is the brooch I am examining

Chandre, You have projected some interesting material here about the solar system.

When talking about what constitutes a planet, maybe we should also take into consideration that the earth's moon could be classed as a small planet rather than a satellite as it orbits this planet and orbits the Sun as well?

Still not giving up on this one.

The brooch has 13 stones in it,

What does the number 13 signify in modern times ? Quite a lot and most of it to do with the occult 

Source : http://www.assatashakur.org/forum/knowledge-self-astrology-numerology/36080-true-meaning-number-13-a.html

It is known to many persons who are not students of the occult that the Tarot is a method of divination by means of 78 symbolic picture cards, to which great antiquity and high importance are attributed by several expositors. And the literary history of the Tarot is also fairly well known. In ancient times the number 13 became a number of fear and superstition because the 13th card of the Tarot is the card of Death, and is pictured as a skeleton (the symbol of death) with a scythe reaping down men in a field of newly grown grass where young faces and heads appear cropping up on all sides. This image later became known as “The Grim Reaper,” and it was ascribed to the planet Saturn. In medieval England the standard fee of the hangman was 13 pence - a shilling and a penny...

But 13 is not an unfortunate number, as is generally supposed. It has become so firmly associated in the popular mind with the notion of “bad luck” that it is easy to forget the fact that in the ancient mystic religions 13 was the characteristic number of participants in many orders and occult groups, including sacred meals – a fact reflected in the size of the original Nazarene Last Supper. And it can be clearly shown that 13 is not only the most cherished number of the United States, but also the most fortunate number for Africans, African-Americans, and people the world over of African descent. We shall begin with the United States:

Starting with the 13 colonies, the first national flag had 13 stars, and even today it still has 13 stripes. On the green side of the dollar bill there are 13 steps in the pyramid of the Great Seal. The motto above the pyramid, which reads “Annuit Coeptis,” has 13 letters; the eagle on the right side has a ribbon in its beak that bears the motto “E pluribus unum,” which contains 13 letters. The eagle has 13 tail feathers, and on its breast there is a shield of 13 stripes. In one talon the eagle holds 13 arrows, and in the other an olive branch with 13 leaves and 13 berries. Over the eagle’s head are 13 stars that form the six-pointed “Star of David.”

The phrase “July the Fourth” contains 13 letters and the number 4 (1+3), the birth number of the U.S. (July 4, 1776), which leads us to the real reason why the “founding fathers” chose this date as the official birth date of the United States:

In the occult science of numerology it is said that, “He who understands the number 13 will be given power and dominion. It is a number of upheaval and destruction; a symbol of power which, if wrongly used, will wreak havoc and destruction upon itself.” Astronomically, on July 4th the longitude of the Sun is 12° Cancer in the Heavens, and on this date the Sun conjoins the great star Sirius, whose longitude is 13° Cancer. Sirius is a first-magnitude star that is 40 times brighter than the Sun, and is the star that rules all African people. It was venerated in ancient Egypt from time immemorial, and was held in great reverence by the ancient Egyptians because it rose heliacally with the Sun at dawn during the inundation of the Nile River, the lifeline of ancient Egypt.

In astrological parlance it is said: “If the great star Sirius is well-placed in a horoscope, it will contribute to the amassing of wealth and the acquisition of fame and honor.” Sirius conjuncts the Sun in the horoscope of the United States, in the 2nd house of money and material possessions. The Part of Fortune is 13° Capricorn – opposing the Sun and Sirius – in the 8th house of other people’s resources! These powerful cosmic patterns explain, astrologically, the great wealth of this country (much of which was acquired through the ignominious practice of slavery)...

Cancer is the fourth (1+3) sign of the zodiac, and it rules the continent of Africa, its inhabitants, and people the world over of African descent. The Moon rules Cancer, and is therefore the cosmic ruler of all African people. The average celestial motion of the Moon is 13° per day, and 13 weeks is the time it takes the Earth to travel from the equinoxes to the solstices. For example, it takes the Earth 13 weeks to travel from the first day of spring (March 20th) to the first day of summer (June 21st); 13 weeks from the first day of summer to the first day of fall (Sept. 23rd); 13 weeks from the first day of fall to the first day of winter (Dec. 21st); and it takes the Earth 13 weeks to travel from the first day of winter to the first day of spring...

[13x4=52, which is the time it takes (in weeks) the Earth to make one complete revolution around the Sun, and in most years lunations (i.e., conjunctions between the Sun and Moon) occur 13 times.]

The fear of the number 13 is unfounded internationally as well. It is an honored number in many countries throughout the world. There are 13 occurrences of the quantity 13 in the design of the Great Pyramid of Gizeh in Egypt, the largest stone edifice ever built. In the Indian Pantheon there are 13 Buddhas. The mystical discs that surmount Indian and Chinese pagodas are 13 in number. Enshrined in the Temple of Atsuta in Japan is a sacred sword with 13 objects of mystery forming its hilt. And 13 was the sacred number of the ancient Mexicans – they had 13 snake gods.

The 13th letter of the English alphabet is M, which finds its roots in the 13th letter of the Hebrew alphabet, “mem” (meaning mother), which was the ancient Phoenician word for water. The ancient Egyptian word for water was “moo.” M is the most sacred of all the letters, for it symbolizes water, where all life began. It is the root of the word “mother,” and relates to the evolutionary destiny of Africans, African-Americans, and all people of African descent who are ruled by the number 13:


In Egyptian mythology Osiris was murdered by his brother Typhon. Osiris’s wife Isis then collected his body intent on bringing Osiris back to life, however Typhon stole the body and cut it into fourteen pieces and scattered them over the earth. Isis though continued her quest and found all but 1 body part which was his penis. (14 – 1 = 13)

In Ancient Egypt the meaning of the number 13 was Immortality.

In Egyptian mythology there are 13 steps on the ladder that leads to eternity.

Apparantly hieroglyphs can be read in many different directions, you read in the opposite direction from which the animals are facing. In this case animals face in both directions so the stone that is out of syn is both number 4 and number 10.

What would the significance of this be ? There is no number 10 in numerology so I'll consider it a dead-end. If you don't that's your choice and you are free to explore that possibility.

Well if it is not that, could it be about something in the heavens after all that really seems to be what the brooch is all about. On that note I want to share something I found the other day which is baffling to me, it's a representation of the Solar System that I have never seen before

Earth's_Location_in_the_Universe_(JPEG) Solar System.jpg

Now look VERY closely. If you exclude the Sun, asteroid and Kuiper belt this depiction portrays THIRTEEN planets/bodies in our Solar System.

Now look at this VERY interesting article

Solar system.png

I’m just going to warn you, this is a controversial topic. Some people get pretty grumpy when you ask: how many planets are in the Solar System? Is it eight, ten, or more?

I promise you this, though, we’re never going back to nine planets… ever.

When many of us grew up, there were nine planets in the Solar System. It was like a fixed point in our brains.

As kids, memorizing this list was an early right of passage of nerd pride: Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto.

But then in 2005, Mike Brown discovered Eris, an icy object thought to be about the same size as Pluto, out beyond its orbit.

That would bring the total number of planets to ten. Right? There’s no turning back, textbooks would need to be changed.

In order to settle the dispute, the International Astronomical Union met in 2006, and argued for, and against Pluto’s planethood. Some astronomers advocated widening the number of planets to twelve, including Pluto, its moon Charon, the Asteroid Ceres, and the newly discovered Eris.

 

In the end, they changed the definition of what makes a planet, and sadly, Pluto doesn’t make the cut:

Here are the new requirements of planethood status:

  1. A planet has to orbit the Sun. Okay fine, Pluto does that.
  2. A planet needs enough gravity to pull itself into a sphere. Okay, spherical. Pluto’s fine there too.
  3. A planet needs to have cleared out its orbit of other objects. Uh oh, Pluto hasn’t done that.

For example, planet Earth accounts for a million times the rest of the material in its orbit, while Pluto is just a fraction of the icy objects in its realm.

The final decision was to demote Pluto from planet to dwarf planet.

But don’t despair, Pluto is in good company.

 

Ceres. Image credit: NASA

Ceres. Image credit: NASA

There’s Ceres, the first asteroid ever discovered, and the smallest of the dwarf planets. The surface of Ceres is made of ice and rock, and it might even have a liquid ocean under its surface. NASA’s Dawn mission is flying there right now to give us close up pictures for the first time.

 

Haumea, named after the Hawaiian goddess of fertility, is about a third the mass of Pluto, and has just enough gravity to pull itself into an ellipsoid, or egg shape. Even though it’s smaller, it’s got moons of its own.

 

Makemake. Credit: NASA

Makemake. Credit: NASA

Makemake, a much larger Kuiper belt object, has a diameter about two-thirds the size of Pluto. It was discovered in 2005 by Mike Brown and his team. So far, Makemake doesn’t seem to have any moons.

 

Eris is the most massive known dwarf planet, and the one that helped turn our definition of a planet upside-down. It’s 27% more massive than Pluto and the ninth most massive body that orbits the Sun. It even has a moon: Dysnomia.

 

Pluto. Credit: ESO

And of course, Pluto. The founding member of the dwarf family.

 

Want an easy way to remember the eight planets, in order? Just remember this mnemonic: my very excellent mother just served us noodles.

For all you currently writing angry tweets to Mike Brown, hold on a sec. Changing Pluto’s categorization is an important step that really needed to happen.

The more we discover about our Universe, the more we realize just how strange and wonderful it is. When Pluto was discovered 80 years ago, we never could have expected the variety of objects in the Solar System. Categorizing Pluto as a dwarf planet helps us better describe our celestial home.

So, our Solar System now has eight planets, and five dwarf planets.

WHAT ??? There are 13 planets in the Solar System ?????

There are 13 stones and a piece of a comet in the brooch that proves (IMHO) that the Egyptians knew more about our Solar system then we do.

Now if anyone can help me and point out which planets number 4 and 10 would be (I honestly can't work it out from these diagrams) we may have an indication of what other messages may be hidden in the brooch.

And yes, OBrien, this is an absolute flight of fantasy but I am really enjoying it.

I just cannot stop thinking about this, below is a description of the brooch from http://www.ancient-egypt.co.uk/cairo%20museum/cm,%20tutankhamun%20mask/pages/tut_article.htm

Tutankhamun's burial jewellery

The pectoral is a kind of ornament that was very popular or common with Egyptian burials, and they have been found in a large number of varieties. Tutankhamun's tomb had a number of these and there either used within his mummy bindings or found within chests in the Treasury. Most have a dorsal ornament which hung down the back, acting as a counter weight and also as a fastening. This piece is built using gold, silver and semi-precious stones and is an excellent example of cloisonné.

 

The central element is a scarab made form a translucent green chalcedony No it is not Attached to it are the open wings and tail of a vulture (Nekhebet) I really think they misunderstood this and the figure is a winged disc rather than a vulture which are inlayed with coloured glass. The legs of the bird are grasping the shen hieroglyph which is the symbol of eternity. It is also holding a bunch of lotus flowers (right) and a lily (left), symbols of Upper (Southern) Egypt.

Below the vulture's tail are garlands of lotus (Upper Egypt) and papyrus (Lower Egypt). Flanking the scarab are the profiles of two cobra, inlaid with coloured glass paste and bearing yellow solar discs on their heads.

Resting on the vulture's wings is a thin boat with a Wedjat eye, the left eye of Horus representing the moon and flanked by two face-on cobra with solar discs on their heads. This boat represents the journey taken by the moon which in Egyptian mythology sailed across the sky each night.

Above the boat is a silver lunar disc with a gold crescent. Three figures are shown on gold relief - the protagonists in a celestial coronation scene. In the centre the Pharaoh wearing a crown (with a moon above him) and flanked by two divinities making protective gestures - on the left is the ibis-headed moon god Thoth and on the right is the falcon-headed god Re-Horakhty.

The pectoral is a combination of symbolism, mixing moon and sun as heavenly bodies associated with the power of the Egyptian Kings.

I also notice that the stnones below the scarab are not uniform in colour, I am sure this has some significance and will appear in a Dan Browne novel one day (LOL)

Here is another brooch found in the tomb and that is definitely NOT a vulture. See those coded stones below. I am sure they are not randomn !

An intresting addition to this mystery

Mystery of King Tutankhamun's death solved after more than 3,000 years

&lt/body&gt

It is one of the greatest mysteries of the ancient world – how the Egyptian boy pharaoh Tutankhamun died. Theories have ranged from a violent murder to leprosy and even a snake bite. But now, 91 years after his discovery and 3,336 years since his death, a surprising new analysis on Tutankhamun’s remains has revealed just what it was that killed the boy king, the 11th pharaoh of the 18th dynasty of Egypt.

Mystery has surrounded the world’s most famous pharaoh ever since his death in 1323 BC, aged 19. The intrigue and superstition intensified when Lord Carnarvon, who was present when the tomb was opened, died shortly afterwards and a series of strange fates befell many of those who had entered the tomb.

Now British experts believe they have solved at least one of the mysteries surrounding the pharaoh – the question of how he died. The remarkable new analysis, which is due to be presented for the first time in the documentary ‘Tutankhamun: The Mystery of the Burnt Mummy’, has revealed substantial evidence that suggests the pharaoh died after being struck by a speeding chariot, and that a hasty embalming process caused his mummified body to spontaneously combust in his sarcophagus.

Dr Chris Naunton, director of the Egypt Exploration Society, became curious when he came across records produced by Howard Carter, who was the first to discover the tomb. Carter made reference to the body having been burnt, a fact that had been emitted from other discussions relating to his remains. Naunton realised that the question of the pharaoh’s death needed further attention and he carried out a virtual autopsy on the body using x-ray and CT scanning technology, as well as examining old records, and conducting an examination on the only known sample of the pharaoh’s flesh to exist outside Egypt.

Nauton found that flesh had indeed been burnt and chemical tests revealed that Tutankhamun’s body had been burnt while sealed inside his coffin. Researchers discovered that embalming oils combined with oxygen and linen caused a chemical reaction which "cooked" the king's body at temperatures of more than 200C. Dr Chris Naunton said: "The charring and possibility that a botched mummification led the body spontaneously combusting shortly after burial was entirely unexpected, something of a revelation."

The virtual autopsy revealed another stunning discovery. The pattern of injuries down one side of his body, including shattered ribs and pelvis, were consistent with injuries caused by being struck by a high speed chariot. Also the fact that his heart was missing, something that has perplexed experts for decades, suggests that the heart was so badly damaged that it was removed before the embalming process. Computer simulations of chariot accidents put together by expert crash investigators suggest that the chariot struck Tutankhamun while he was on his knees.

“We believe there is now a very distinct possibility that he was struck by a chariot wheel in the torso at high speed – enough to do him very serious damage. In fact, that’s what killed him,” said Nauton.

Naunton believes it was the extent of his injuries that led to the botched embalming process: “His body would have been a real mess – he would not have been left a little bloodied – and that would have given the embalmers a real problem. They were used to dealing with dead bodies, not mangled ones,” he said.

The spectacular findings will be shown for the first time on Britain’s Channel 4's 'Tutankhamun: The Mystery of the Burnt Mummy' next Sunday at 8pm.

Tutankhamun's brooch

Left: Tutankhamun's brooch (no copyright)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

There's something bothering me about the brooch, they have placed the glass in a strategic position which means they seems to understand the significance of the find. So I started having a closer look at this possibility.

A scarab in reality looks like this

trinidad-green-scarab-wings.jpg

There is an obvious difference between the actual beetle and the brooch. To my (untrained) eye it looks like the scarab has been combined with the winged disc (I am sure I do not need to explain the significance of this in detail).

 

So, I started digging and found this interesting proof below that at a point the winged disc and the scarab were portrayed seperately and later they were combined together.

W648

W648

This coffin fragment shows Khepri (the scarab beetle, representing the sun coming into being) being embraced by the sun-disc.

On either side of the sun-disk is the hieroglyph for life, the ankh. The two kneeling figures are solar divine beings, the one on the left with feather being West, the one on the right, the East. Both are sitting on per signs and are being offered loaves of bread. Between them is a sign of a hill over which are the rays of the rising sun (Gardiner sign N28).

For information on earlier representions of arms projecting from the sun-disc see Sugi (2003). Sugi suggests the arms are protective and offer life. The sun god embracing the earth is also illustrated on the 18th Dynasty Book of the Dead of Userhat (BM 10009, Taylor 2010, 239 fig. 20). Here the scene is an illustration of Chapter 15 (the British Museum online catalogue also shows the scene), the worship of the sun. However, as far as I know, in these earlier scenes the scarab is not present.

The motif of the sun-disc embracing the scarab is from the final hour of the Amduat, a book which has its early origins in the New Kingdom (the earliest example is in the tomb of Tuthmosis I. This represents the morning version of the scarab welcomed by the sun. It occasionally occurs on 21st Dynasty coffins (e.g. Budapest 5096/1-2, Liptay 2011, 54, 56-57, pl.11). Though here it is incorporated into the Hathor cow and mountain motif. As Liptay explains, by the 21st Dynasty both solar and nocturnal aspects of rebirth were combined. The deceased travels through the Duat to be reborn in the morning. For the motif of the nocturnal scarab see Goff 1979 figs. 139, 140, 145. For the motif of the sun-disc with arms on the 21st Dynasty Papyri see: Niwiński 1989, 140, figs. 26a, 41 and 76 and Liptay 2006, 38-39. In the latter example the scarab is present. The motif of the rays of the rising sun (Gardiner sign N28) is congruent with the final hour of the Amduat.

This item dates to the early 22nd Dynasty. By the 22nd Dynasty scenes of the Amduat had become increasingly common motifs for coffins. It was purchased by Wellcome at auction in 1924 from the Hood collection.

Now according to the original article, this explosion occured 28 million years ago, and we as mankind are just realising what it is now. This means that the Egyptians in Tut's time had an idea of the significance and they placed the stone very strategically making a clear statement that they knew what it was. They placed the stone in the position of the winged disc and made it a scarab to indicate the life (and death) cycle. Now if the Egyptians knew what this was and they were referring to a comet specifically as being the winged disc I find this possibility absolutely fascinating, especially in light of Comet Ison. If the Egyptians were referrring to comets as winged discs and not a planet or a spaceship, that throws an interesting perspective on what they were trying to communicate......

Believe it or not wink

First ever evidence of a comet striking Earth

 

8 October 2013

The first ever evidence of a comet entering Earth’s atmosphere and exploding, raining down a shock wave of fire which obliterated every life form in its path, has been discovered by a team of South African scientists and international collaborators, and will be presented at a public lecture on Thursday.

Hypatia explosionLeft: An artist’s rendition of the comet exploding in Earth’s atmosphere above Egypt (credit: Terry Bakker)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The discovery has not only provided the first definitive proof of a comet striking Earth, millions of years ago, but it could also help us to unlock, in the future, the secrets of the formation of our solar system.

“Comets always visit our skies – they’re these dirty snowballs of ice mixed with dust – but never before in history has material from a comet ever been found on Earth,” says Professor David Block of Wits University.

The comet entered Earth’s atmosphere above Egypt about 28 million years ago. As it entered the atmosphere, it exploded, heating up the sand beneath it to a temperature of about 2 000 degrees Celsius, and resulting in the formation of a huge amount of yellow silica glass which lies scattered over a 6 000 square kilometer area in the Sahara. A magnificent specimen of the glass, polished by ancient jewellers, is found in Tutankhamun's brooch with its striking yellow-brown scarab.

Tutankhamun's brooch

The research, which will be published in Earth and Planetary Science Letters, was conducted by a collaboration of geoscientists, physicistsand astronomers including Block, lead author Professor Jan Kramers of the University of Johannesburg, Dr Marco Andreoli of the South African Nuclear Energy Corporation, and Chris Harris of the University of Cape Town.

At the centre of the attention of this team was a mysterious black pebble found years earlier by an Egyptian geologist in the area of the silica glass. After conducting highly sophisticated chemical analyses on this pebble, the authors came to the inescapable conclusion that it represented the very first known hand specimen of a comet nucleus, rather than simply an unusual type of meteorite.

Kramers describes this as a moment of career defining elation. “It’s a typical scientific euphoria when you eliminate all other options and come to the realisation of what it must be,” he said.

 

The impact of the explosion also produced microscopic diamonds. “Diamonds are produced from carbon bearing material. Normally they form deep in the earth, where the pressure is high, but you can also generate very high pressure with shock. Part of the comet impacted and the shock of the impact produced the diamonds,” says Kramers.

The team have named the diamond-bearing pebble “Hypatia” in honour of the first well known female mathematician, astronomer and philosopher, Hypatia of Alexandria.

Comet material is very elusive. Comet fragments have not been found on Earth before except as microscopic sized dust particles in the upper atmosphere and some carbon-rich dust in the Antarctic ice. Space agencies have spent billions to secure the smallest amounts of pristine comet matter.

“NASA and ESA (European Space Agency) spend billions of dollars collecting a few micrograms of comet material and bringing it back to Earth, and now we’ve got a radical new approach of studying this material, without spending billions of dollars collecting it,” says Kramers.

The study of Hypatia has grown into an international collaborative research programme, coordinated by Andreoli, which involves a growing number of scientists drawn from a variety of disciplines. Dr Mario di Martino of Turin's Astrophysical Observatory has led several expeditions to the desert glass area.

“Comets contain the very secrets to unlocking the formation of our solar system and this discovery gives us an unprecedented opportunity to study comet material first hand,” says Block.
