... with statues and a colonnade." It is highly likely that this is a description of the great First Court and First Pylon of the Temple of Amun-Ra at Karnak. This court encloses the two temples of Seti II and Ramesses III, and, during the construction of the north tower of the pylon which forms the entrance to the court, the west side of the temple of Seti II had to be demolished and replaced. Along the insides of the north and south walls of the court are single colonnades, and against the columns are the sphinxes of Ramesses II which were moved back from the central axis of the approach, either to accommodate more buildings of Shoshenq I of which now nothing remains, or perhaps during the reign of Taharqa of the 25th Dynasty, when a double row of columns was erected in the centre of the court. The sphinxes were reerected on bases which included reused blocks of Tuthmosis I, Amunhotep IV and one block which bore part of a relief showing Pinudjem I offering to Amun-Ra. The court has a monumental entrance on the ...

... the Greeks should have forgotten how to read and write once they had learned how to do so" (59). As incredible as it was for this renowned archaeologist to accept, "the iron fact remains that Greeks could not write between the thirteenth century B.C. and the latter part of the eighth" (60). All attempts to fill this gap have met with failure (61). In addition to the Linear B inscriptions, two of these houses contained ivory carvings, depicting, among other things, architectural columns, some fluted as were those of the archaic and classical periods. Wace thus spoke of the "long ancestry" of the fluted columns which first appear in the 7th century B.C. and flourished in the classical period (62). Not just the fluting was similar. So were the capitals. These "13th-century" ivories "show capitals that vary from the simple prototype of the Doric echinus to the elaborate and sophisticated form of the sixth century Archaic capital from a Treasury at Delphi which indeed is foreshadowed in the Mycenaean ...

24. A FIRE NOT BLOWN: CHAPTER 08: THE BULL [Quantavolution Website]
... The most likely derivation is from the Greek bous, ox, and lussa, frenzy. The letter n in bolynthos would be a nasalisation of the vowel u, such as occurs in Polish, and probably Etruscan, and is seen in the Greek basileus, king, and in the names Tereus [who was turned into a hoopoe, and Katreus [the ka watcher. The fight between a king and a fierce animal is a common theme in ancient art, especially oriental. At Persepolis, in the 'hall of a hundred columns', the Persian king is shown defeating monsters. A Greek equivalent would be Herakles or Theseus. Winged bulls with human heads are found at Persepolis, where Xerxes erected a gateway. The message is ambiguous: the king is the human representative of the divine bull in the sky, wings being added to indicate that the creature concerned is a celestial one. The Apis bull was cherished and worshipped. The king or his servants could also kill the bull if it was seen as a threat. Columns at Persepolis not only ...

25. Transcendental Trivia? [Science Frontiers Website]
... 5 almost exactly equals e 6. We are sure that great truths lie hidden in these two numbers (despite their unattractive decimals) when we find that a 5x5 magic square (first row: 17, 24, 1, 8, 15) can be transformed by the alchemy of pi into an unmagic but very strange square. To do this, replace the 17 by the 17th digit of pi (this is 2); 24 by the 24th digit (this is 4); and so on. The rows and columns of the new square add up to the same numbers: columns; 17, 19, 25, 24, 23; rows; 24, 23, 25, 29, 17. (Yes, the order given is correct.) Gardner maintains that this astounding transformation is merely a coincidence, like all of the other peculiar relationships between 3 and pi. Millions and millions of relationships are possible and a few will certainly be remarkable, just as only a few of the many possible mathematical equations describe natural phenomena. ( ...

27. Sunspots Still Surprise Investigators [Thunderbolts Website]
... or margins of the sunspot. For many years solar physicists have claimed that these filaments were convection cells, typical of heated gases. But the higher-resolution details shown here, including the twin bridges across the sunspot, do not support traditional theory. All of the structure shown is consistent with the principle of anode tufting, a plasma discharge effect expected of a positively charged electric Sun. High-resolution images of the penumbra filaments have revealed the distinctive characteristics of tornado-like charge vortices. By giving us a peek beneath the tops of the rotating discharge columns, sunspots enable us to view directly the columns explosive rise from below, as they heat and project plasma upward into the bright photospheric granules. For conventional theory, sunspot penumbrae remain a mystery: the standard solar model neither requires nor predicts such phenomena. In the electric model they are predictable. Electric discharges in plasma take the form of long, thin and twisting filaments. Because they are tornadic funnels of glowing plasma, they will appear darker in their centers, exactly as seen in the recent pictures. Convection cells ...

... the tomb, a quadrangular pyramid, which has sides about four plethra in width and a height equal thereto. Imandes is the name of the man buried there..." [11 Figure 1: The Step Pyramid Complex Figure 1 depicting the layout of the Step Pyramid complex is taken from a modern guidebook, and appears to be based on a schematic prepared by Lauer [12. Many uncanny similarities with the descriptions provided by Herodotus and Strabo can be seen. For example, the guidebook states, "There are forty columns in the colonnade, thought to represent the nomes or provinces which numbered around forty at the time. Originally, the colonnade was roofed in, and a roof over the shorter end columns would have formed a long T-shaped gallery" [13. Also 'Steps lead up the south wall of the Zoser complex to the warren of tombs and other funerary monuments outside the wall' [14. The great plain of stone described by Strabo would appear to be the area 5 in Figure 1, which is described as a 'spacious Great ...

29. When Dust Storms Engulf Mars [Thunderbolts Website]
... the two Martian dust storm images above, it appears that the dust is being jetted upwards rather than being blown along the surface. This is explicable in the electric tornado model and explains how dust is raised efficiently many kilometers into the thin air and suspended for a time electrostatically. The role of violent vortices on the leading edge of dust storms is particularly clear in the image we ve placed here. Closer examination should show that these tornadoes form preferentially on high points and the sharp edges of craters or escarpments. The twisting columns on the leading edge of the storm suggest vertical movement that is inconceivable in an electrically inert near-vacuum. Perhaps the closest analog to these columns is the network of twisted filaments electric tornadoes, according to Thornhill seen most clearly erupting from beneath the Sun s photosphere on the margins of sunspots. The Electric Universe identifies the dust storms on Mars as electric discharges etching the surface in the same way that, in industrial applications, electric discharge machining etches metallic surfaces. Though the Martian tornadoes and dust storms lack the power ...

The Ipuwer Papyrus in the Leiden Museum was written about this time and describes Egypt as we would expect it to be then: 'Nay, but the heart is violent. Plague stalks through the land and blood is everywhere... Nay, but the river is blood. Does a man drink from it? As a human he rejects it. He thirsts for water... Nay, but gates, columns and walls are consumed with fire... Nay but men are few. He that lays his brother in the ground is everywhere... Nay but the son of the high-born man is no longer to be recognised... The stranger people from outside are come into Egypt... Nay, but corn has perished everywhere. People are stripped of clothing, perfume and oil. Everyone says there is no more. The storehouse is bare... It has come to this. The king has been ...
