21. KA [Books]
... Greek techne, device, skill. Ker, evil, suggests Greek ker, evil spirit. Neb, lord, may be related to Neptunus. Poseidon, the Greek god, occurs in Greek in the form Poteidan, lord of earth (da = ga = ge = earth). Ta-neter is Egyptian for divine land'. The ankh is an Egyptian symbol for life. Is there a link with the Greek onux, onuch-, a hoof or nail? Pegasus created a spring of water on Mount Helicon with the spark and blow of his hoof. The ankh will be considered in detail in a later chapter. Onka, a Phoenician name, is applied to ...
22. The Ark in Action [Books] [de Grazia books]
... ." With various adjustments, all of which were recapitulated in the renaissance of electrical science in the eighteenth century, the poles or bars could be made to scintillate throughout their lengths, the wings of the cherubim would light up, and a glow would occupy the space beneath or shrouded by the wings, with the four ankhs (pictured at the corners in Figure 10) sparking like brilliant erratic candles. A god was present. The only meaning of Ark' in the dictionary of Egyptian hieroglyphics is the name of a god. But when was this Egyptian ark constructed? Was it for a shrine made before 1450 B.C . or afterwards? The ...

24. Symbols of an Alien Sky: Part II [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... colinear arrangement (basically a straight line). As the system destabilised, the plasma flux tube between the planets destabilised, starting with a single stream, and degenerating into three or more streams. These celestial patterns would form the basis of mythological images around the world. Dave showed quite convincingly how images such as the Egyptian headdresses, the Ankh symbol, feathers, and numerous images containing arcs, all derived from the one Saturnian model. [It crossed my mind that since the Saturn Model was derived from mythological symbols, then by definition, one seems to follow from the other]. In addition to the Saturn Model deriving the mythological imagery, one finds certain linguistic patterns ...
25. The Myth of the Goddess, Evolution of an image by Anne Baring and Jules Cashford [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... but nonetheless continued to attract, show all the characteristics of the cosmic goddess. However she also surfaces as the two cherubim who cover the ark with their wings; it is remarked how similar these figures are to one from Syria, with the winged figures closely associated with the tree of life and guardian figures from Egypt whose wings shadow the ankh. The relationship of many biblical figures to their wives or sisters is similar to that between the Egyptian Osiris and Isis and other god-goddess pairs. Later there are the images of Sophia, or Hokhmah, and the Shekinah. The image of Sophia appears to have been repressed at the beginning of the Christian era, only to rise again ...
26. The Bubastite Portal: Evidence Against Velikovsky's Placement of Ramesses II in the Late 7th Century [Journals] [SIS Review]
... . The middle photograph (which is in negative in order to highlight the details of the inscription) shows the left cartouche on the surface of the pylon wall containing the prenomen of Ramesses - User-Maat-Ra setep-en-Ra. Next to it, the left half of the nomen cartouche can be seen, clearly showing the seated "Ra" figure, with ankh on knee, and the "mes" sign of the three fox skins which, in turn, is immediately adjacent to the folded-cloth sign (phonetically "s " or "sh") passing behind the blocks of stone which form part of the Portal pilaster. The combination of signs in these two cartouches are applicable only to Ramesses ...
27. Society News [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... , which could be interpreted as the voice of god. It is likely that the conducting powers of water in such circumstances can explain the frequency of shrines to water deities. Water was associated with the death of a Sibyl, while prophesying at Delphi. Iron was also used at oracular sites. Connections with the Egyptian word for life, ankh, were shown in the Latin sancio and indicate that the priests brought statues to life with their electrical tricks. Words for creation and flow seem linked to the shining appearance of a god suffused with ka. The smoke of incense could have imitated smoke from the divine fire, seen as the breath of ka. Hebrew, Greek, ...
... and perhaps it represented the sinking sun in the west, but it is likely that it symbolized the Tunnels of the Earth where the devils and monsters lurked in wait. Of the examples illustrated, Fig. A shows the Maatit Boat (Solar Boat) with tunnel beyond; Fig. B is similar, with a deity carrying the sacred ankh, probably hawk-headed Horus; Fig. C contains a cargo of the dead in emaciated condition, and standing in the Tunnel, shown as a serpentine form, is the bull-headed deity Ptah, who built the Tunnels to Amenta of which Gerald Massey says, "It was the Tunnel of Ptah with its gates of entrance and FIG. ...

... also to various related effigies and pictographs from around the world.(4 ) Almost identical to the "sign of Tanit" - at least in its basic form - is the Egyptian hieroglyph for the "living Ra",(5 ) a deity whom we have already seen identified as Saturn. So also with the symbol of the ankh, another Saturnian emblem,(6 ) especially in those cases where this crux ansata was supplied with additional uplifted human arms.(7 ) When John Gibson interviewed Talbott in 1977, he made it quite clear that this human-like appearance was, to him, the most noteworthy among the entire panoply of Saturnian symbols that Talbott had made ...
30. Letters [Journals] [SIS Review]
... (Spring-Summer 1973). Unisex Sandal-straps Dr Zvi Rix's interesting researches on the cosmological concepts of primitive peoples, in particular the apparent androgynous character given to comets and presumed cometary deities, are both plausible and stimulating, and much to be welcomed. However, I feel he was ill-advised to bring the Egyptian hieroglyph and symbol for Life (" ankh") into the discussion. The views he cites, deriving the symbol from a representation of the phallus, promote an interpretation which was very fashionable in the last century but which will find few who will take it seriously among more recent Egyptologists. The interpretation of the as a phallus is excluded by Egyptologists' improved knowledge of the ...
