A short essay supplement has been prepared which may help in relating to the purpose of the temple at Crossing the Leo-Cancer Boundary.

DAY AND NIGHT

Probably the most enigmatic and frightening book of the Bible is Revelations. Yet, it is indeed the one book, without which, all the other books reveal only stories of esoteric and ethical wisdom. Revelations converts faith into science when its truths are measured against the cosmos through the "Book of Q."


Figure 12: Celestial Time Indicators

This ancient book was never lost, because it was never printed. To understand the Book of Q, it is necessary to understand the celestial book of the heavens. This book has been interpreted by civilizations for over 20,000 years, from the cave drawings to the Rig Veda, to the Egyptian Chapters of Coming Into Day, to Zoroastrianism, to the Torah, to Revelations, to the Koran, and even the Book of Mormon. The one book which does not hide its source is the little book on the ceiling of the chapel to Osiris in the Denderah temple. There, planets represent the universe, and the intersections of the lines projecting from the staffs of the planet icons are essential to the mandala. Two intersection points define the ecliptic (EP) and celestial (CP) poles of the heavens. The positions of these poles within the ring of the zodiac constellations define a cosmic date within the Great Year of 26,066 Earth years. The solar date is 30 A.D. It is also a date defining spiritual time. In particular it is the most important spiritual date of the Ancient Egyptians and the Modern Muslims, Judgment Day. It represents the time when the nighttime vernal equinox proceeds from the balance of Ra.

Inscriptions around the zodiac declare that the temple was designed at the time of the "Companions of Horus." Companions of Horus are the anointed ones whose hearts are found to be in balance with Maat, in the hall of judgment. It should be abundantly clear that the hypothesis that the "Book of Q" and the circular zodiac of Denderah are directly related, is correct. Within the monument is a spiral of three and one half cycles, which begins at the balance on the autumn equinox and ends at the scepter of the beast on the vernal equinox at 30 A.D. Accepting the fabricators of the monument at their word, then the revelation of John was first revealed around 561 B.C. and became "law" in 30 A.D. This 561 B.C. date was derived by measuring the angle between the line from the North arrow near Capricorn to the star (Sirius) above the head of Hathor, and the line projecting through the scepter of Jupiter and the sun headed man. The first line represents the celestial North vector at the time of the revelation. The second line represents the solstice axis during 30 A.D. This date is traceable, because it represents the date when the vernal equinox crosses the line of the little fish in the constellation of Pisces in the celestial vault. On the Denderah zodiac, a line projected ninety degrees from the Jupiter scepter axis through the ecliptic pole passes through the equivalent line of the image of Pisces. This line has the image of the Utchat, which represents the Oneness of the cosmos, attached to it. Within Pisces are an image of rational knowledge. Opposite the Utchat fish is the large fish with the image of a woman carrying a pig. These three represent the three great denials of the Piscine Age; Spiritual Unity, Rational Truth, and Physical Intuition.

Figure 13: Balance of Reason and Truth

In the mind of the ancient sages there existed only one element left to deny. That element was called Earth, and represented material existence. Denial of the material soul was the subject of the last judgment. Those who successfully denied material existence followed the light of Virgo to the Kingdom of Heaven. Those who unsuccessfully denied materiality returned to the center through the womb of Tauret, to begin the labyrinth all over again. Above the scales of Libra are the image of a young king and a dog. The path of Tauret leads to the dog days. The path of Virgo leads to the king’s domain. This paradigm of judgment was created when Nebuchadnezzar ruled, and yet the spirit of its presence has not passed from us, after 2556 years.

Nebuchadnezzar reigned in Babylon from 604 B.C. to 561 B.C. During his conquests, the priests of Egypt would have combined their spiritual wisdom with that of the priests of Babylon. A merging of the two great theologies would clearly explain the nature of the design of the Denderah zodiac. This "knowledge," or more appropriately spiritual wisdom, would have been translated to the stone monument over the following four centuries. Now after two additional millennia, the stone has begun to speak. This so called esoteric knowledge has found a modern age that is apathetic to its ancestors. Apathy, not of disdain, but rather of ignorance. When civilization switched from pictorial writing in the form of hieroglyphs, the mind became lazy. It sought words to match words. As such, it became possible to communicate without sensual consciousness. Thought processes were triggered by words, and revealed explanatory words. This cycle of rationalizations resulted in the ouroborous serpent which restricts the imagination. With hieroglyphs, pictorials, icons, etc., it was necessary to fully draw upon the senses to determine meaning. Rational communication with spoken or written words does not sufficiently stimulate the brain’s creative processes. Sages of the class of Socrates and Plato communicated with word pictures and metaphors. A student had to test several versions of the meanings before a proper communication was retrieved. In our monotheistic approach to life, we tend to expect a single meaning, and are reluctant to look deeper into the soul of the one whom we are communicating with. Expediency begins to take over as judgment occurs without proper evaluation. Call it arrogance, stepping out in faith, hutspah, naiveté, or vanity, it still leaves the senses out of the communication. When we bypass the analysis of the balance, we fail to understand. That is why the Egyptians required the last judgment, to assure alternatives were considered.

Western civilization slipped out of balance when the Aryans invaded Egypt in the second millennium. After driving the Hyksos out of Egypt, the Eighteenth Dynasty established the first Egyptian empire. Before that Egypt had been an isolated theocracy with regards to worldly territory. In the 14th century B.C. after the death of Amenophis III, the priesthood of Aten established a cosmic religion which was 3400 years before its time. Their religion was based upon galactic coordinates at the moment of Sep Tepi. The city of the Pharaoh Akenaten was situated at a location which was directly under the path of the top of the galactic axis when the vernal equinox was in opposition to the top of the galactic axis. The reason why this location was so important, was that at the moment of Sep Tepi the Milky Way would be completely surrounding the horizon of Akhetaten (El Armarna). This would occur once every 26,000 years at the beginning of the new cosmic day. As such, it fulfilled its name as the "Horizon of Aten." Aten was the "sun disk" not the sun. It represented the galaxy as did Ra-Harakhty, the Horus of Two Horizons. This event and its meaning are absolutely critical to understanding the development of the Old Testament and the creation of the heavenly state of Israel. Since Israel was the "land of milk and honey," it represented everything above the Milky Way. At the "First Time" in Akhetaten, when the constellation of Virgo and Coma Berenices are at the zenith, only Israel is visible. Everything under the horizon is Egypt. Ophiuchus, Scorpio, Virgo, Leo, Cancer, and Gemini represent the six days of creation. Everything under the galaxy is gone, for God rested on the seventh day. Adam and Eve (Gemini) were placed in a garden, where the four rivers of creation flowed. Those four rivers were the relationship of the metaphysical elements and the Maat.


Figure 14: North Galactic Pole at Zenith above Akhet Aten (El Amarna, Egypt) 1996,

Egypt loved the underworld and the afterlife through their ancestors on the west bank of the Nile for many millennia before Akhenaten and Nefertiti came to the garden of Egypt. During that time the Egyptians had talked to God. Within ten years of ascending the throne of Egypt, Akhenaten and his priests set out to destroy all the temples to the many hundreds of Egyptian gods, for the sake of the one who was called Aten. This was the first time that history records religious persecution. In religious terms, this was the original sin. As such the tree which had been the Osiris "Tree of Life," now became the "Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil." Adam and Eve in the physical bodies of Akhenaten and Nefertiti were banished from the garden.


Figure 15: South Galactic Pole at Nadir below Akhet Aten (El Amarna, Egypt) 1996

This is a fascinating aspect of astroarchaeology. When the ancient myths are placed in proper correspondence with the stars, the myths become history rather than fable. After the end of the 18th Dynasty, the world broke up into many parts. Egypt went back to their traditional methods of communicating with the Creator, and the Aten priests struggled to understand why their fabulous dream was not accepted by Aten. One aspect of the garden of Akhetaten was it androgynous outlook. But hidden behind the androgyny was a clear attempt to return Egypt to the nurturing aspect of the feminine spirit. Thus, Eve was banished from ever being given power over mankind again. And the LORD God said unto the woman, What is this that thou hast done? And the woman said, The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat. And the LORD God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life: And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel. Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee. (Gen 3:13-16 KJV) To this day, the Great Red Dragon crawls on its belly under the Virgin as the serpent Hydra, where it head is being walked upon by the lion. Egypt told a story of the same section of the sky about how Isis tricked Ra into giving her his hidden name after causing him to step on a serpent. Why did the Aryan Semitic monotheists resort to such desperate oppression of women? Could it be because they had lost the battle to take over the world due to pacifist and submissive spirits? It was the first time that a true One World Government was feasible, and the reluctance to fight for the goal by Akhenaten and Nefertiti had resulted in abject failure.

The new God of Israel became angry because of the weakness, and the monotheists, through the legend of Moses, were going to concede a failure, but they would wait upon the Lord for their eventual victory. The road Israel chose was the Tabernacle of the Sun. Rational methods would apply to all forms of deliberating. Proof of this fact is evident in the behavior of the monotheists for the following 3400 years. However, it is specifically stated in Genesis by the death of Able and the birth of Enos. And Adam knew his wife again; and she bare a son, and called his name Seth: For God, said she, hath appointed me another seed instead of Abel, whom Cain slew. And to Seth, to him also there was born a son; and he called his name Enos: then began men to call upon the name of the LORD. (Gen 4:25-26 KJV) Adam represented the spiritual element in man. Cain, being a farmer, represented the material element in man. Abel, being a caretaker of animals, represented the physical element in man. Seth, was the very name of the brother who killed Osiris, and in Egypt, Seth was the son whose element was rationality. These four sons of God were equivalent to fire, earth, water, and air. As the four sons of Horus are known by the appellations, Ba, Ka, Body, and Name. Egypt had a fifth part of the soul called the shadow. It was this part that was dominating the monotheists. By attempting to eliminate all the gods of Egypt, their example said that it was acceptable to kill even the last One. It was never declared, but the shadow has hung over Israel for three millennia. The result of calling upon the "name of the Lord" is rationalization of spirits and feelings for which the monotheists have no means of communication. That inability to communicate was going to have to be overcome by suffering, repenting, and salvation. Their salvation was clearly written on the celestial vault under the sea in the land of Egypt, from whence they came.

Egypt took a different course, for they had been that way before. According to their legends, the Shemsu Hor, or the companions of Horus, had found the paths through the garden one and a half Great Years (40,000 years) before the temple at Denderah was designed. If their tradition is traceable to the caves at Lascaux and the settlements along the ancient rivers of India, which evidence suggests, then they indeed knew the way.

Figure 16: Out of Egypt have I called my son. (Matt 2:15 KJV)

Four distinct paths across the garden are shown in Figure 15. First the soul can remain in the Barque of Ra and journey without self distinction back to Scorpio. Along that way they will have to help the Barque sail past the wolf that guards the back door to creation, around the south end of the garden. A second route through the 

garden is along the Tabernacle of the Sun. This is the oldest recognized route, and the most rational. However, this route ends in recalcitrant wisdom at Sagittarius, for by the end of that journey the body is no longer willing. Egypt was fond of taking the heroic route by living a dedicated life. Eventually dedicated people will fall prey to their associates as envy and jealousy grows in them. Thus Osiris is sent down the winding waterway where he eventually becomes the trunk of the great tree. But this route has a miraculous finish. As a root to a tree, it becomes possible to gain a new body of youth and enthusiasm in following generations. All Osiris has to do is make sure that his Ka, or material soul, is kept available for the descendants to find his seed. Then they can pick up his flail and crook. This path requires that the dead Osiris grasp the scepter of flint and inspire the future generations with his Ba, or spiritual soul. Finally, there is another way around the garden. This route is called the Roman road, for it avoids the Medusa of companionship and belonging. It is the route taken by Mithras in turning his back on the rest of the world and taking personal responsibility. And straightway coming up out of the water, he saw the heavens opened, and the Spirit like a dove descending upon him: and there came a voice from heaven, saying, Thou art my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. (Mark 1:10-11 KJV) Mithras and Osiris were joined in Jesus, but it is the path of Mithras that has ruled the world for the last two thousand years. Turning their backs on divine guidance through celestial prophesy, the Romans set a course for Western civilization that could not have been imagined. It was a bumpy and rocky road, but the exhilaration of personal success has always been the motivation along the most successful path around the garden. It implies that one should acknowledge the pitfalls and barriers to success, without losing a sense of personal being. In that day when the soul is lost, the gates to hell open. Hopefully, when the inevitable occurs, the way to resurrection and rebirth has been adequately prepared.


Figure 17: Constantine’s Shield Guards the Throne

The conformal road of the sea voyagers in the Barque, and the usurper road of those who wait for their ship to come in along the path of the sun, do not reach the open door into the Elysian fields or the land flowing with milk and honey. But heroic effort and personal responsibility are the paths that the stars declare. Where the eagle and the child meet, the father of the angels in heaven grasps his spirit to begin a new journey. (Figure 16 & Figure 17)

The Osiris road to salvation was restored after Akhenaten with the ascension to the throne of Seti I. This Pharaoh chose the name of the murderer of Osiris for the same reason that Israel had chosen the way of Eve’s son Seth. Reason was still the best alternative. In the papyrus of Hunefer, the restoration of Egypt and the reconciliation of Seth is demonstrated, where Seth is the soul escorted through the judgment hall.


Figure 18: Papyrus of Hu-nefer, Reign of Seti I, 1306-1290 B.C., He Has Risen

This is possibly the most famous papyrus which came out of Egypt. When the soul joins Anubus, the material being is brought to the judgment hall. Truth is weighed against the heart. For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. (Matt 6:21 KJV) It was said of unbelievers, "He hath blinded their eyes, and hardened their heart; that they should not see with their eyes, nor understand with their heart, and be converted, and I should heal them." (John 12:40 KJV) Judgment is not for any man to perform on others, that resolution is between the Creator and the individual. I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness. And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world. He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day. (John 12:46-48 KJV) Passing through the hall of the double Maat presents the cosmically conscious soul as a companion of Horus to the one who sits on the throne of heaven. Receiving the right to passage in the form of the five parts of the soul, the self is risen up to the father, Ra. This level of understanding comes through the heart, not through the head. Yet, it is as rational as the theorem of Pythagorus. It is not a problem of communicating words, it is a problem of understanding from where the words come. Like the feet of iron mixed with miry clay, our words are passed down to us by way of our ancestors, who have the first and last word on what they mean.

Clearly, there was a tremendous division between the so called "Sons of Light" and the "Sons of Darkness." Egypt returned to its land of birth, for it was not afraid of the underworld. Its theology defined all the pitfalls of the subconscious mind. That is how they came to be able to talk to God. In the valley of death, for which Israel has such anxiety, Egypt found the pool of Siloam and the "Tree of Life" growing and prospering. Their fundamental response to death was the preservation of human experience for the sake of the descendants. Whatever form that preservation took was acceptable, for the living only die so that the unborn may live. When Seti I took the throne of Egypt, the principles of the unconscious mind ruled Egypt again.


Figure 19: Conflict of Consciousness

Contrast this with the reaction by the "Sons of Light." They interpreted the "Valley of Death" as a forbidden place, from which no understanding could ever be found. As Mithras, they rode the chariot of fire over the tree of life and separated themselves completely from women and children. The object was to avoid being bound by emotions which they could not do anything about. The followers of El took a different route, for they could not accept the slaughter of the bull, for El was the bull of the Hebrews. Recognizing the "angel of death" in the stars of Perseus and the Medusa’s head, they turned toward the Great Shepherd in Auriga, again.

In the person of Abraham, the Hebrews had confronted the valley of death. Abraham submitted to the wishes of the Lord and prepared to sacrifice his first born son, Isaac. But according to the story in the stars, Abraham lifted up his eyes, and looked, and behold behind him a ram caught in a thicket by his horns: and Abraham went and took the ram, and offered him up for a burnt offering in the stead of his son. (Gen 22:13 KJV) Now the Hebrew thing to do would be to avoid the valley of death and the "presence of mine enemies" another time. This would lead Moses onto the mountain of heaven where he had earlier seen a bush of fire, and the fateful binding words were to be learned from the Lord. And the LORD said unto Moses, Go down, charge the people, lest they break through unto the LORD to gaze, and many of them perish. (Exod 19:21 KJV) With this expression, the children of Israel were delivered out of the house of bondage in Egypt, and into the house of bondage in Israel. Egypt saw all of this, and turned away, for they knew that it was clearly a problem of communication. The "sons of light" could not see in the darkness, for their ancestors had been ignored. Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are as graves which appear not, and the men that walk over them are not aware of them. (Luke 11:44 KJV) Of all that can be said of Egypt, it can be truthfully said that they remembered their ancestors and their descendants. This was the meaning of the Great Sycamore Tree in which the body of Osiris had become bound. With out ancestors and descendants, no dream of men can produce life, regardless of its rational perfection. Recognition of this fact eventually led to the sacrifice of the "King of the Jews" so that they to could be found in the branches of the living tree in the garden of heaven.

It is with this preparation that the wages of the eight months of the first eight houses of the zodiac accrued to the new man who would give a sermon on the mountain. There is a lad here, which hath five barley loaves, and two small fishes: but what are they among so many? (John 6:9 KJV) In the stars of heaven at the moment know as Sep Tepi the summer solstice is at the mountain in Auriga, the winter solstice is at the child in Aquila, the vernal equinox is at the two fishes, and the autumn equinox is at the house of bread. Surely, it is possible to feed the multitudes with everything that is in the heavens. Two fishes represent the material and physical elements. Five loaves represent the rational and spiritual elements, and the three axioms of communication. Again, the writers have included all there is in heaven. A miracle known as life is sustained on these seven ingredients, and there are always leftovers.


Figure 20: Vernal Equinox March 21, 30 A.D. Relative to March 21, 1997

As a final presentation for this essay, let us consider the alternative offered the Age of Pisces. And when he had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour. (Rev 8:1 KJV) This period of time is precisely the time required for the meridian to pass between the two lines of the fishes in Pisces. As Figure 20 indicates, the vernal equinox in 30 A.D. crossed the first line between and Pisces, while the second line between µ and Pisces is crossed on the vernal equinox around 646 A.D. The latter crossing is somewhat difficult to pin down, because the stars lie on the equator, low magnitude stars occur in the same area. Using the method demonstrated in Table 1, it can be shown that the Horus falcon on the Denderah is reliably oriented to this date.

In Figure 3, Osiris is shown in the ring of fire at the mark for the original western position, just after the baboon of Thoth and the altar of instincts. Through the teacher of righteousness and the nurturers the monument arrives at the star Sirius on the cow of Hathor. This is the Star of Isis, who had the son of Osiris after he had died. She being the metaphor for the revisitation of the heart, gave birth to a new consciousness as Horus in the reeds of Egypt. That Horus is shown on the north temple axis standing on a papyrus stalk. He was the symbol of the Divine Falcon of truth.

The Book of Jonah tells the story of an Hebrew who did not go off to Nineveh to do the Lord’s will. After going fishing he was taken by a whale to the bottom of the sea for three days. I went down to the bottoms of the mountains; the earth with her bars was about me for ever: yet hast thou brought up my life from corruption, O LORD my God. (Jonah 2:6 KJV) This book clearly explains the reading of the constellations under Pisces. There is a constellation called Sculptor that has been used by many prophets to describe the journey through the pits under the tree of life. Even though they did not accept the resurrection of the dead, the Hebrews had their message of salvation. But if we take the Levites as the Jews of today, and all other people as the other tribes of Israel, it is clear that the prophecy of the Denderah zodiac, that Horus would return in 646 A.D., and the prophesy of Jonah that a Hebrew would go to Nineveh to preach to the people. That proverbial Hebrew was Mohammed. During the precise period indicated by the stars, the Denderah, and Jonah, monotheism swept all of Babylon. The Prophet had come on time and in the appropriate place. Islam saved the ancient science of astroarchaeology.

The correctness of identifying Mohammed with Horus is verified several ways. First, Allah, is the Cosmic Oneness. Horus is the Cosmic Consciousness. Islam awaits the judgment day. Horus is the escort of the companions at judgment day. Islam came to overcome the exuberance of the "Sons of Light," who had followed the sun since the beginning of the age. Islam has as its symbol a crescent and a star. However, hidden within the crescent is the true meaning of Islam. Three stellar bodies are represented, the sun, the moon, and a star. It is a metaphor that says that a cosmic individual can be found if the brilliance of the sun is eclipsed. Thus Islam fought Byzantium to regain the cosmic world for the "Sons of Darkness."

But there is significant evidence that the beginnings of Islam were substantially supported by Cosmic Will beyond the imaginations of humans. On April 21, 646 A.D., just twelve days, or the first new moon after Easter, a solar eclipse occurred which would have been visible throughout the Middle East. This solar eclipse occurred with a degree of synchronicity which was spectacularly profound for a world deep in the Dark Ages of Europe, and at a crossroads in Eurasia. What was at stake was the second great schism of Western Religion. The first schism was the separation of the Roman Catholic Church from the Orthodox of Constantine, which had moved with the Empire to Constantinople in the fourth century. Now a third religious faith was being developed that would sweep the whole Arab world and North Africa. This third faith of The Book would maintain the tenets of the Old and New Testaments, but would take Jesus down from the altar of divinity and make him a prophet. Of central importance to this new faith was, and is, the coming of Judgment Day. This young faith had come full circle back to the days of the Pharaohs, for when the great Pharaohs ruled the world, Judgment Day was the moment of greatest importance to the living soul. That would be the day when the Companions of Horus would rise to their heavenly abode through the Hall of the Double Maati and past the Throne of Osiris. Truth and understanding would prevail to those who could reach this eternal cosmic goal.

The solar eclipse, which occurred at 11:42 AM in Constantinople, according to The Sky astronomy program. Redshift and Sky Globe are alternative astronomy programs that also indicate that the solar eclipse occurred, although they differ in time by nearly an hour and in position by several degrees. What the programs all agree on is the celestial positions of the planets in the heavens. Figure 21 indicates that the sky over the Middle East would have gone completely dark during totality while all the known planets would have been over head. Venus at a magnitude of -3.5 would have been seen through the corona of the sun in Aries. Jupiter at a magnitude of -1.73 would have been sitting directly on the location known as Sep Tepi to the Egyptians, and the AW to the Greeks. Mercury at a magnitude of -1.08 would have been visible east of the darkened Sun in Taurus, just above Saturn. The Ancient of Days and traditional patron of the Last Judgment, at a magnitude of 0.3 would probably have shown through the twilight below Mercury. If the scientists of that time were watching closely, they would probably have been able to see Mars above Orion at 1.9 magnitude, and Sirius at -1.6 magnitude coming over the eastern horizon. It would have been a spectacular show to peasants who did not know their stars.

But to Byzantine and Arab sages, this solar eclipse would have carried a serious omen, for it occurred directly under Algol, the "Angel of Death." The implication of the sun in conjunction with Algol, is that the Earth was in Libra. The gospels tell the story of the crucified Jesus at a place called Golgotha, or the place of the skull. And after that they had mocked him, they took the robe off from him, and put his own raiment on him, and led him away to crucify him. And as they came out, they found a man of Cyrene, Simon by name: him they compelled to bear his cross. And when they were come unto a place called Golgotha, that is to say, a place of a skull, (Matt 27:31-33 KJV) Islam had heard the Universal Will that day. Now they could continue on the course of saving civilization from the dregs of the Dark Ages. Islam never saw the European Dark Ages, because they saw the scientific light which came from the creator. Within four hundred years, the Europeans would find the writing of the Ancient World which had been preserved by Islam, and the Renaissance of Europe would resurrect the soul of a people lost in superstition and obeisance to their Lord. Only Europe and Egypt would live the legends of Osiris and of Christ in total. Israel an Islam would take a different course, even though they all had the same cosmic source.


Figure 21: Solar Eclipse Revealed the Fable of the Ancients

The message written across the sky that fateful day was the story of salvation as well as judgment. Perseus crosses the Milky Way on the path of the Exodus out of Egypt. Cetus, the whale, crosses under the Milky Way toward the Furnace and the Sculptor on the path of Jonah. Christianity then fulfills the prophesy of Jonah through the Nation of Islam. To conjecture that the founders of Islam understood the message of the stars on the day the sun died is not a far reach. They did pursue the stars with substantial effort. Most of the stars have Arab names as a result of their scientific pursuits. Their symbol is a crescent and a star. That is precisely what they would have seen that day, for Venus was bright enough to precede the eclipse as the sun became a crescent, and it would have lingered long after all the other stars had faded. But the ultimate understanding would have been seen on the midnight meridian twelve hours after the eclipse. Libra would have been on the meridian, indicating that the Earth would have been in the balance when the sun was blocked out by the moon. This was a judgment day of the planet of men. The star known as the Sun was darkened, and the star known as Jesus was darkened as well. It is hard to imagine any metaphor in the heavens that could have been more synchronistic. It seems to have been a cosmic approval of the way of Islam.


Figure 22: At the Nadir Meridian of Constantinople, the Earth Rested on the Balance

Humanity fought the wolf of imperialism that day in the form of Islam. In the sky, the Earth passed the wolf, Lupus, and the Centaur struggling before the celestial barque, Argo. This ship has been the metaphor for civilization longer than written records reveal. Only time will tell who the infidels were, and if mutineers commandeered the vessel. But time and the cosmos have clearly indicated that there is a valid reason to accept a Universal Will. How else can the overwhelming synchronicity be understood?

Figure 23: Sixth Millennium Chatal Höyük, Anatolia

Using a Great Year of 25,800 solar years, The Sky Globe astronomy predicts the following sequence of ages; -17,070 Ophiuchus -15,575 Scorpio-Libra -13,775 Virgo -10,500 Leo -7,675 Cancer -6,500 Gemini -4,500 Taurus -1,800 Aries 1 Pisces +2,730 Aquarius +4,730 Capricorn +6,330 Sagittarius +8,730 Ophiuchus. This great sequence of ages is the cyclical cosmic plan. When the understanding of these ages is lost, the cosmos is lost to the individual. Keeping track of the ages was the foremost task of Ancient Civilizations. We can find monuments to the ages in the Sphinx in Egypt for Leo. In the great voyage of Gilgamesh we find the Age of Cancer from Mesopotamia, which launched the Age of Gemini, as all the animals departed the great celestial yacht two by two. Legend says that the Arc of Noah landed on Mount Ararat in Turkey. Archeological evidence supports the providential beginning of the Age of Gemini in Anatolia, albeit not with the remains of a ship, but with the tradition of dualities. At Chatal Höyük in Anatolia, Neolithic artifacts abound indicating synchronicity with the age of Gemini. When the Age of Taurus began, there were substantial areas under cultivation and urbanity. Babylonian kings, Semitic nomads, and Egyptian Pharaohs all vied for the designation as the People of the Age. History gave Egypt its approval as she was depicted as the "Bull of My Mother." When Lot left the land of Sodom and Gomorrah in an attempt to gain the right to the New Age, his wife looked back and turned into a pillar of salt, as she was frozen forever as the constellation of Orion. Egypt was successful in joining the two lands, because she dedicated all her wealth and physical power to the Age.


Figure 24: Seal of Solomon

As the Age of Aries sprang upon the world, there were few who wanted to claim the right to the name of the age. Aries was known for its arrogance and self centeredness. But Aries also represented the last house of the gods. Eventually, the house was given to the Israelites, since their images of God gave them clear title to the appellation Chosen People. Israel took the baton of time and finished the joining of the two ages with Solomon’s seal. Proof that Egypt had done its job is the hiding place of the Four Sons of Horus. They are all within the living symbol of monotheism. That is why it is called Solomon’s seal, for it marks the House of David, and joins the proverbial lands below the galaxy with those above, and in between, while sealing the wisdom of the Ancients for the passage through the valley of death, until the beginning again. Cosmic consciousness was eventually taken out of Egypt in Pisces, where it will rise with the sun on an ever westward journey.

These messages of eternal change and constant attachment have drawn a thread through time, which the initiates of life can find. First it is necessary to pass through the Hall of Truth, also known as the Hall of the Last Judgment. Persia and Babylonia worshiped the brightest star in the sky under the name of Ishtar, the goddess of the planet Venus. Two thousand years before Christ they logged her risings and settings with such perfection that it is possible to date the kingdoms of Mesopotamia within months. It cannot be honestly doubted that an Islamic people who write of skeptics declaring fables of the ancients would not witness the message on the true 1st of Aries about a judgment day. Especially since the message was written on the celestial vault at mid day twelve days after the celebration of the resurrection of the Son of God. They saw that message, and they acted in accordance with the thread leading through the labyrinth of time to preserve the most ancient science of all time, astroarchaeology. Not astrology, not astrophysics, not psychology, but evidence of the Universal Will in action. O star of wonder star of night, star with royal beauty bright, westward leading, still proceeding, guide us to thy perfect light.

By 1000 A.D., the battle grounds of the Crusades was established. Would the spiritual "Sons of Darkness" win out over the rational "Sons of Light?" Both of them followed Abraham, who was the Patriarch of the Jews. In all three, the woman was bound. Christianity allowed the woman’s bindings to be loosened, but she was not free. Judaism kept women bound to the delivery room in its scriptures, without letting her regain any of her status before Abraham. These three are a far cry from Egypt, which acknowledge the feminine and masculine principles in all things.

If Egypt was right, and there is evidence in all of the Western Theologies to suggest she was, then the dawn of a new day is about to be recognized. She will rise up from her grave and show the world a miracle of incomprehensible wonder. Five thousand years ago, Egypt was founded for this very purpose. She knew that mankind would lose the way of the stars. She built pyramids and necropolises to ward off the evil spirits of the princes of this world. Now she is ready to reveal her hidden manna from heaven.

Figure 26: Meaning of the Nadir Site

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. (John 1:1-5 KJV) These words begin the only Gnostic version of the four gospels. To understand it, it is critical to know that there was an Egyptian god named Ptah. He was the one who created the whole of creation, including all of the other gods with his own word. He is known as the pillar of creation and the primordial potter of the heavens. He rests at the very bottom of the galaxy in a house called the Sculptor. In the synoptic gospels, he was known as a carpenter named Joseph the husband of Mary, a virgin, and the earthly father of Jesus.

This constellation called Sculptor has a long and important history. It is the location of the foundations of the Earth, and it is at the axis of the Great Potter’s wheel. His words are the life giving waters, and his pool is at Siloam. Siloam is stellar earth. It is also the place where the sand and clay were obtained to mold the first artifacts of creation. At the end of the winding river called Eridanus.

Consider the following extraction from The Encyclopedia of Ancient Egypt to understand why the cosmic nadir location on Sep Tepi at Akhetaten signifies the reincarnation of the Creator. And why it represents the beginning of monotheism under Akhenaten.

"Ptah the god of ancient Egypt in MEMPHIS, called Ptah-Sokar in a double form and Ptah-Sokar-Ausar in the triune style. Ptah dates to the earliest dynastic eras of Egypt, and perhaps beyond. A sophisticated theology made Ptah somewhat obscure to the average Egyptian. The Memphite teachings concerning Ptah were discovered on a stela, which explained the cosmogony of the cult and the region. Accordingly, Ptah was the only true god, the creator, and all others, divine and human, emanated from his will. The cosmogonic groups of other cities were supposed to have been devised by Ptah. This deity was also the source of the ethical and moral orders in the world, and he was called Hiku-Ptah or Hat-Ka-Ptah, the mansion of the soul of Ptah. Statues and reliefs depicting the god showed him as a man with very light skin, mummy wrappings and an immense collar with the MENAT. Most such depictions of Ptah were designed as pillars, emblems of justice. Called the First of the Gods, Ptah was a patron of the great architectural monuments that began in the Old Kingdom. As Tatenen he was revered as the creative urge, both for the world and for individual works of art. Despite his involved theology, Ptah remained popular in Egypt, and was honored especially in the great temple complexes of Amon."

This depiction of Ptah shows him holding the scepter of flint with four cross beams at the top, signifying the pillar of Osiris. Behind him is the symbol of the celestial pillar and the trunk of the great sycamore tree of Osiris. At the bottom of the scepter of flint is a half circle representing a stoker. In the celestial vault, the bottom of the galaxy lies at the stoker of the scepter of flint. (Compare Figure 15, 20 and 21)

Figure 27: Creator of Heaven

Where is the man (rational) child going? First he must be born again of the Horus-spirit of the father, Ptah, through the fish-body and the goat-mind, on the wings of the vulture-eagle. And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn. (Luke 2:7 KJV) The swaddling cloths represent the diaper on Antinous, the Horus-spirit in the constellation Aquila. The manger represents the Milky Way, and the inn represents the zodiac.

Was Akhenaten this Christ, or was he an Anti-Christ? Well the evidence from Akhetaten definitely places him at the galactic axis. But even more important, his physical appearance is the same as the constellation of Ptah, the Sculptor. Donald B. Redford describes Akhenaten in Akhenaten, The Heretic King. "In contrast to the frequent appearance of his brothers and sisters, Amenophis, the second son of Amenophis III --- his older brother has died young --- is conspicuous by his absence from the monuments of his father. It may well be that he was intentionally kept in the background because of a congenital ailment which made him hideous to behold. The repertoire of Amarna art has made us familiar with the effeminate appearance of the young man; elongated skull, fleshy lips, slanting eyes, lengthened ear lobes, prominent jaw, narrow shoulders, potbelly, enormous hips and thighs, and spindly legs. Of late the experts have tended to identify his problem with some sort of endocrine disorder in which secondary sex characteristics failed to develop, and eunuchoidism resulted." (pg 57-58) What may have been occurring was the first coup d’etat at the highest level of civilization. Knowing that Akhenaten had military presence everywhere he went, suggests that this concept is not entirely without support. If it was a coup d’etat, then it would have been foreign born and it would have attempted to eliminate the dependence by Egyptians, and the world, on the west bank of the Nile, where the sacred necropolises were located. By adapting the man Akhenaten to be Pharaoh, the resemblance of his body to the constellation of Ptah would represent an easily accepted proof of his divine right. Although we do not know the precise nature of the reign of Akhenaten, it appears to have had the same effect on Egypt that the Bolshevik revolution had on Russia.

Redford finishes his book with the following paragraph. "For all that can be said in his favor, Akhenaten in spirit remains to the end totalitarian. The right of an individual freely to choose was wholly foreign to him. He was the champion of universal, celestial power who demanded universal submission. Claimed universal truth, and from whom no further revelation could be expected. ---" Communism, monastery, and kibbutz life styles are examples of the loss of individual freedoms that have always accompanied monotheistic principles. These principles simplify the theory of life to a rational explanation that then becomes universal law. That is precisely what the Denderah zodiac declares to be, the legacy of the Age of Aries.
