If Golgotha is the place where the Son of Man was slain, let us return to that time and pursue how and why the deed had came to pass. It has been shown in Coming Forth by Day at Ares Vallis that the tree of life rose to the zenith at the Pathfinder site on July 4, 1997. Two passages through the tree in the midst of the garden have been identified. One leads to Gemini along the course of the planets, and one leads to Ophiuchus along the sequence of the equinoxes. Can we find a material and physical Adam and Eve along the way of the vernal equinox?
It would appear that the Atenists left us with a picture of the father and mother of Western Civilization in the scene of Akhenaten and Nefertiti with three of their daughters. One point is undeniably present in the vignette. It is the man who is giving the affection! It is the woman who is in control, and it is the daughters who are watching. This is completely at odds to the King of Kings, Ruler of rulers image of his predecessor Amenophis III. Here we have a dramatic role reversal and a sublimation of masculinity. This was not a result of a genetic defect, or a propensity toward homosexuality, this was a deliberate attempt to raise women up in the eyes of the world. The image of the deity is a Sun-disc with benevolent rays, each with a hand dispensing the abundance of life. A clear sign of feminine nurturing. Akhenaten became the vehicle whereby the Aten could dispense the wealth of creation, this is how "he who is useful to the Sun-disc" was designed by the priests, or priestesses of Aten. This vignette was intended to calm the aggressive nature of men so that Egypt would cease its masculine dominance. Egypt, after all, was the "bull of my mother." She was the "great provider." She wanted to return to the days of feminine wisdom.
To lock her androgynous image into the minds of the people of Egypt and the world, the priests demonstrated extreme celestial wisdom by placing their Pharaoh at the "seat of the first occasion." This would make Akhetaten the capitol of the world forever! What a concept!
However, the dreams of these androgenous oracles were void of common sensation. They had been bedazzled by the stars, much like the Heaven's Gate cultists on the vernal equinox of 1997. Both the Heaven's Gate people and the Aten people were beguiled by the serpents in the head of the Medusa. Just because a thought or spirit is true does not indicate that it should be transformed into material reality. Humanity has had the affliction of prophesy ever since it began to predict the seasons of the year. Animals have the same powers, for they know when morning is nigh. Humans have the additional gift of being able to abandoned their material place of being and transcend the physical being in out-of-body experiences through a prolific imagination. All of the places that can be imagined can be visited. However, none of the places that can be imagined can be visited by the body. This is true whether you board a spaceship behind comet Hale Bopp, dive through a wormhole into another universe, or set yourself up at the center of the galaxy for eternity, like Akhetaten.
The body is totally and completely bound by the four pillars of Osiris. Where it rests is the physical pillar. Where the earth rests is the material pillar. Where the sun rests is the rational pillar. And where the galaxy rests is the spiritual pillar. Navigation of the body around these pillars is the purpose for which the Cosmos created consciousness within the body. Through proper serendipity with the cosmos the body can achieve unification with the Master. That is certainly the goal of Monotheism. However, the Master had many ideas, and suggested that any graven image of cosmic ideas would lead to destruction of the soul.
Throughout the whole dynastic period of Egypt, a temple to the god Geb was never constructed. That is until Akhenaten. In Akhenaten we see the principle reason why Egypt avoided the construction of such temples. When Shu and Tefnut were spued from Ra, he told them not to copulate and bring any other generations of gods. Shu and Tefnut got a hold of the eye of Ra when he was unaware, and they brought forth Nut and Geb. Shu and Tefnut were air and water, or reason and emotion. But Nut and Geb were separated from the bosom of Tefnut when Shu lifted Nut high into the heavens and forced Geb down under the celestial waters. She was the supreme ideal. He was the supremely mundane. Why would any religious authority endeavor to raise the mundane to the sublime? The goal is to transcend the mundane and become the sublime. That requires the death of the mundane. The Atenists had the preposterous belief that they could make the mundane and the sublime equal and have peace forever. To accomplish that feat they would have to emasculate the Pharaoh and place "him" on an equal footing with "her". The Yang and the Yin would be formed into a composite that would last forever.
Feminine intuition would be given to man, so that he could understand the darkness all around him, without the sobriquets of the Dazzling Sun-Disc, King of Kings, and Ruler of rulers. All would be subservient to the Aten.
And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof; And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man. And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man. Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh. And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed. (Gen 2:21-25)
This was how Eve was created as told by Genesis. The vignette and the "resting place of Aten," tell the same story. Man had been inspired by intuition to give up the defense of his heart so that peace would prevail and they would not fear of anything in the garden. Akhenaten was a fabrication of the Atenist priests. If he was of royal blood, there is no evidence. But it is clear that he was not of royal heritage. In his temples, he is shown wearing the feather of Maat, symbolizing truth, and the double crown of Egypt, symbolizing fulfilled life cycles. These images can be expressed in modern Christian terms with the first part of the words of John 14:6; Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. The second half of the verse is based upon self sacrifice through service to the Master, which was not an Aten concept, but an Osiris concept.
In the image of Akhenaten beside the "resting place of the Sun-disc" at the constellation of the Sculptor, we can seen the echo of form transformed into function. The form of Akhenaten is the same as the asterism, the function is to unify the cosmos under the auspices of a single priesthood, i.e. monotheism is born. Here the image of a most mundane man acts as the central theme for all men to follow. If the world would follow this man, there would be no more wars, and Egypt would be at peace with the cosmos.
These images are not in balance for reasons that are beyond the obvious ones of emasculation. Akhenaten's "great wife" was Nefertiti, a name that has a clear ring of Tushratta of Mittanni about it. Nefertiti means "the beautiful one is come." (Redford pg. 78) A close look at the famous bust of Nefertiti reveals that her famous blue crown has incorporated within it the obtuse and acute angles of the top of the head of the constellation of the Sculptor. Now we see the true objective of the Atenists. The head of the asterism at the resting place of the Sun-disc is associated with Nefertiti, while the body of the asterism is associated with Akhenaten. She will be the wisdom and he will be the "useful one." This would clearly explain why Egyptologists find that Nefertiti appears nearly twice as often as Akhenaten in his early years as Pharaoh. During this time she is given a name that means "exquisite beauty of the sun-disc." (Redford pg 79)
To understand the full essence of the feminine axis of the galaxy, we must rise up to the top of its axis. Before we do, it is important to recall that Shu represented the ecliptic, and Tefnut represented the galaxy. Thus, when Ra caused them to come into being out of the Nu and the Nun, he created his mother and his father. This is not feasible in the material world, but it is obvious in the spiritual world. We each develop images of our parents as we grow. Not a single one of the images which we create of our parents comes from them. Every image we have we construct from the abyss of our own unconscious mind. That abyss is the unknowable Nu and Nun of preconsciousness. Its effect is an echo of prior experiences, and therefor, it is the resurrection of Osiris. The axis of the abyss runs from the bottomless pit in the furrow of Maat, to the highest pasture in the Elysian Fields of heaven.
It is under the "tent of Abraham" that we find the true connection of Aten to the monotheism of the Judeo-Christian-Muslim-Mormon theology. At the precise moment that the vernal equinox rose on the floodplain of Ares Vallis, and the Earth rose on Mars as it planted the seed of Pathfinder on its soils, the first six days of creation span the sky above Akhetaten. It is a sign that says that the Atenists were justified in their beliefs, but their spaceship would not land on the star of rationality for thirty four centuries. When the spaceship landed, Mars could be seen from Akhetaten at the nape of the neck of the Virgin. It is Virgo who was the only daughter of Jacob. It is Virgo who was Sarah, the mother of Isaac. It is Virgo who was Rachel, the beloved wife of Jacob. It is Virgo who was Mary the mother of Jesus. It is Virgo who was there on that celestial morning to give birth to a new Great Year. In spite of the complete impossibility of this sign, "the beautiful one is come" was over Akhenaten, celebrating what she had been designed to celebrate, the eternal conception of motherhood.
Rising in the east southeast was Ophiuchus (Ra, Abraham, Jacob, Jesus), as night was separated from the day, and light was created on the First Day. Under the left arm of Ophiuchus and the head of the serpent, a creature rises up from the waters below onto the firmament of heaven as the Great Red Dragon, as it marks the Second Day. On the Third Day the dry land appeared and all the fields full of herb bearing seeds were placed in heaven above "the beautiful one is come" at Virgo. All the constellations and the wandering stars were created on the Fourth Day, along with the great lights to rule the day and to rule the night in the house of the king of beasts, Leo. Along the way of precession the house of the Crab brought forth all the creatures that moveth from the waters on the Fifth Day. Then on the Sixth Day, God's own image was created upon the Earth as man, male and female made He them in Gemini.
This glorious place was called "the beautiful one is come" by the Atenists. Egypt also knew it as Hathor, the house of Horus. When the vernal equinox rose on Ares Vallis, the Hebrew tent of heaven was directly over Akhetaten at the celestial moment for which it had been founded thirty four hundred years before. The pillar of the earth aligned with the pillar of the galaxy together with the pillar of the sun at the place known as Akhetaten, the resting place of the Sun-disc, and the axis of the galaxy. At that precise moment all four pillars aligned and the Earth planted a seed in memoriam to a dreamer of space travels, Carl Sagan. In all his fantasies, Carl Sagan never imagined what the Atenists had imagined in Egypt thirty four centuries before. In all of his wisdom, Solomon never saw the vision of the Atenists. They were dreamers without parallel. Their utopian concepts faded under the sands of Egypt as reality sank into the empire that was fast becoming a "has been." Akhenaten and the feminist priests of his reign failed to understand the fundamental principle of life which Osiris had died for. Life is not in the dreams of what might be, life is in the dreams of what is. Osiris ruled the underworld, because he had once ruled the upper world. That is the lesson that keeps repeating itself every time the stars are understood. That is the most powerful lesson that a mortal can ever learn. Life may not be perfected in the past or the future, but the present is the most perfect time to share the walk with the stars. It is from the land of bondage to the "bull of my mother" under the "tent of Abraham" that we strive desperately to free ourselves. Here is the land of Akhenaten, Hagar, Elizabeth, Mary Magdelene, and all the lamenting women of antiquity. Their lamentations are that their child will grow and no longer need them. Now a certain man was sick, named Lazarus, of Bethany, the town of Mary and her sister Martha. (It was that Mary which anointed the Lord with ointment, and wiped his feet with her hair, whose brother Lazarus was sick.) Therefore his sisters sent unto him, saying, Lord, behold, he whom thou lovest is sick. When Jesus heard that, he said, This sickness is not unto death, but for the glory of God, that the Son of God might be glorified thereby. John 11:1-4 In this Land of Ishmael is Jacob's ladder and the tree of life, and God will hear the lamentations in these celestial waters. But her end is bitter as wormwood, sharp as a two edged sword.(Proverbs: 5:4)
