The moment the sand becomes moistened by the approach of the fertilising waters, it is literally alive with insects innumerable. It is impossible to stand by the side of one of these noble streams, to see it every moment sweeping away some obstruction to its majestic course, and widening as it flows, without feeling the heart to expand with love and joy and confidence in the great Author of this annual miracle of mercy." Different Forms of Thoth After the flood comes the sowing time. The effects of the inundation, as Osborn shows in another place, "exhibit themselves in a scene of fertility and beauty such as will scarcely be found, in another country at any season of the year.

The next phase, perhaps upon the occasion of the destruction of planet "Apollo" and the major displacement of Mercury, sees, in Egypt, Seth and Horus battling, and in Greece, a revolt of the giants against the Olympians led by Zeus. This set of events, then, would occur over a thousand years later than the death of Osiris and would mark the appearance of Mercury, Hermes, or Thoth as a new great god-- that is, a god who is threatening the Earth with destruction. The last battle against Typhon will be described below on the occasion of the Venusian catastrophes. There Seth is Typhon.

... the lunar months were determined partly by observation of the Moon and partly by guessing (though guessing is not a factor in the case of the El-Lahun lunar dates). The relevance of observation here is crucial in dealing with the lunar calendar. It is most important that we establish the legitimacy of referring to observation as a check on lunar dates, rather than assuming that they are merely the output of a cycle table and what the Moon actually did was irrelevant. Censorinus was correct that there was a heliacal rising of Sirius on Thoth 1 Egyptian= July 20 Julian, +139. Theon was correct that the Egyptian calendar and the corrected and retrojected Alexandrian calendar were in phase in -25. (Thoth 1 Egyptian= Thoth 1 Alexandrian, from -25 to -22.) This emphasis on -25 is not to be confused with the inauguration of the actual Alexandrian calendar by Octavian/Augustus, which was in -29. Furthermore, Theon's remarks are entirely consistent with Censorinus, since they have nothing whatsoever to do with Sirius! When the Theon annotator suggests there was ...

... a distaste for calendar reform itself. Rejection of a plan for adding one day every four years does not prove that the Egyptians never adjusted their calendar to align it with the seasons and proper festive occasions. Adjustment of a calendar and increasing the length of the year are two completely separate reforms in calendation. Correction of the seasons with the proper months could be effected without the addition to or subtraction from the total length of the civil year. Payni 1 fell near the rising of Sirius (July 19-22) in 238 B.C. Thoth 1,170 days away, occurred on October 22 in the same year. This data coordinates perfectly with Censorinus, making the existence of a continuous Sothic cycle in the first millennium B.C. a firm proposition. CENSORINUS Censorinus, a Latin writer of the third century AD., is unknown to us except for his treatise entitled De die natali liber. His reference to the rising of Sirius is, however, of first order importance. A recent book concerned with the Exodus tries to discredit Censorinus's chronology on the basis of ...

June 7, 1997 Tethered Satellite Debacle Wal Thornhill ( I mentioned this at the World Conference in January as a good example of the naive view that scientists have of the Earth's environment. The current dogma is that the Earth's magnetosphere is created by the Earth's intrinsic magnetic field and traps plasma to form a buffer against the buffeting of the solar wind. However, I believe that Ralph Juergens, Earl Milton and others are correct when they attribute electric charge to the planets and the Sun. With this single, simple assumption, backed up by myriad observations, the Earth's magnetosphere is plainly a PLASMASPHERE, which is formed to shield a charged body from the surrounding plasma. The Earth's magnetic field is then an effect of the rotating, charged Earth, rather than a cause of the magnetosphere. A plasmasphere has a strong radial electric field, with a voltage drop equal to the difference between the Earth and the ...

Cross-posted from Cambridge Conference list. Last week's press release about Louis Frank's latest research findings about watery and icy mini comets which are claimed to impact our atmosphere at a rate of one every three seconds(!), has provoked a new scientific controversy among astrophysicists. For the non-astronomer, it remains extremely difficult to assess whether or not Dr Frank's findings are based on valid interpretation of observational data or whether the evidence is still too ambiguous (as the skeptics have pointed out on this network). Should Louis Frank's findings be corroborated, though, the implications would not only affect the understanding of our cosmic environment; it might also demonstrate- once again- the Kuhnian suggestion that astronomers tend to apply 'biased' observational technics which- in one way or another- simply mirror and compliment their personal ...

... From: SIS Internet Digest 1997:1 (Sep 1997) Home¦ Issue Contents Thoth Vol I, No. 16. June 15, 1997 Snowball Mini-comets By Wal Thornhill ( Dr. Louis Frank's recent announcement of confirmation of his theory of icy comets bombarding the Earth has stirred up considerable controversy after more than a decade of rejection by most astronomers. The "proof" comes in the form of some images from orbiting spacecraft of glowing trails plunging toward the Earth, hundreds of kilometres above the surface. The glowing, ionized trails are said to emit the characteristic radiation of excited atoms and ions associated with water. The size of these "mini water comets" is thought to be about 5-20 metre diameter and density about 0.2g/cc, which would mean they are fluffy like a snowball. Dr. Frank's theory was developed from observations, beginning in 1981, of "holes" in dayglow images of the Earth returned by orbiting spacecraft. Dayglow is caused by sunlight exciting oxygen atoms high in the ionosphere which then emit ultraviolet ...

Few, if any of the features on the Sun have any right being there if it is purely an isolated nuclear source of energy. For example, if the Sun is an isolated body in space radiating away its internal energy, then it should have no "weather". If the solar wind is carrying energy away from the Sun, slowing it down, then it's equator should be spinning more slowly than the higher latitudes, not faster. But if the Sun is being powered externally, like an electric motor, the equatorial plasma will be driven to rotate faster creating complex electromagnetic interactions in the conductive plasma of the Sun, interpreted in the attached article ...

Neptune's largest moon revolves backwards in an orbit that could remain stable only a short (astronomically speaking) time. Both of them have highly skewed magnetic fields. All of their moons are riddled with the same kinds of scars found on the hypothesized participants of the Saturnian scenario.

This temple is dedicated to local aspects of Amun, Sekhmet and Thoth and the scenes and inscriptions were completed by Shoshenq I's successor, Osorkon I. This monument was built of an inferior quality limestone, probably quarried locally, and the walls have been eroded severely by the effects of dampness. It is nevertheless a rare example of an original building of this period. None of the monuments mentioned above is precisely dated within Shoshenq I's reign.

I should like to stress here that the heliacal rising of a star does not mean that the star and the Sun are both at the horizon at the morning of the heliacal rising.
