... enclosure." (25) Is there any direct statement that the enclosure depicted in the sign is the ship's pathway? The Egyptians called the band Aten or khu (" glory," "halo"): "Hail to you who sails in his Khu, who navigates a circle within his Aten," reads the Book of the Dead. (26) Clearly, the subject is the crescent-enclosure. In the Pyramid Texts, King Unas announces, "I revolve round heaven like Re, I sail round heaven like Thoth." While Re's image is the Aten, the common symbol of Thoth is the crescent-enclosure. Allowing the one image to explain the other, we see that Unas does not here engage in two separate acts, but in a single act depicted in two different ways: to revolve within the Aten is to sail in the crescent-ship of Thoth. (27) The circle of the Aten is the "brow" of Re, and it is on Re's brow that the texts locate the ship: "I fly up and ...

Thoth Vol IV, No. 15 Oct 15, 2000 During my first close encounter with Wal Thornhill, he electrified me with a picture of Zeus holding a thunderbolt. The bolt was football shaped with stringy things spiraling out of it. Wal explained that it was the shape a plasmoid took in a vacuum. "Gee-golly-cornpone!" I thought. "The ancient Greeks carved statues of something that hasn't been seen until modern man cranked up the current in a high-voltage lab." Now it's happened again. At the recent seminar in Portland, the work of Tony Peratt, author of "The Plasma Universe," (Springer- Verlag, 1992) was called to our attention. His work shows pictures of extremely powerful plasma discharges in his lab. They're called "Peratt instabilities." As the current is pumped up, the stringy things (NASA's technical jargon for Birkeland filaments, which they re-discovered awhile back in the tail of ...

The actual inscription has been translated as follows:-- "The living God, the magnificent son of Asti [a name of Thoth, nourished by the sublime goddess in the temple, the sovereign of the country, stretches the rope in joy. With his glance towards the ak [the middle? of the Bull's Thigh constellation, he establishes the temple-house of the mistress of Denderah, as took place there before." At another place the king says: "Looking to the sky at the course of the rising stars [and recognising the ak of the Bull's Thigh constellation, I establish the corners of the temple of Her Majesty."

125. It's Still the Same Elephant [SIS Internet Digest $]
... From: SIS Internet Digest 1998:2 (Dec 1998) Home¦ Issue Contents It's Still the Same Elephant Mel and Amy Acheson, Email: thoth@whidbey.com Thoth Vol II, No. 13 Aug 31, 1998 One of the fundamental fables about human nature is the story of the 7 blind men and the elephant. Each blind man touched a different part of the elephant and came up with a different conception of the nature of the beast. Even more elementary than the different concepts --and something not directly addressed by the fable --is the matter of the blind men's different perceptions. The man rubbing the leg thought the elephant was like a tree because his rubbing gave him a sensation similar to the sensation he got from rubbing a tree. But it works the other way around, too: He perceived a tree-like sensation because he already had a concept of a tree. Centuries of philosophers have worried over the nature of perception. Thomas Kuhn, for example, noted the inextricable connection-- one could almost say "con-fusion"--between perception and ...
