... . There was no artificial illumination such as we have, and the dark night did not so much typify rest as death; so that the coming of the glorious morning of tropical or sub-tropical climates seemed to be a re-awakening to all the joys and delights and activities of life, thus the difference between night and day was to the ancient Egyptians almost the difference between death and life. We can imagine that darkness thus considered by a mythologically-thinking people was regarded as the work of an enemy, and hence, in time, their natural enemies were represented as being the friends of darkness. Here a very interesting astronomical point comes in. With these views, there must have been ...
312. Velikovsky's Sources Volume Two [Books]
... the pronouncements of the Oracle at Delphi, he failed to mention the earth shaking events of only two centuries before. The most promising hint of support for V's scenario in Herodotus is that in ii.142, which V cites on WIC p.112 thus: " In the second book of his history, Herodotus relates his conversations with Egyptian priests on his visit to Egypt some time during the second half of the fifth century before the present era. Concluding the history of their people, the priests told him that the period, following their first king covered three hundred and forty one generations, and Herodotus calculated that, three generations being equal to a century, the whole ...
313. The Amarna Age - an Introduction [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... of debate concerns a possible overlap or coregency of the end of his reign with the start of Akhenaten's. Opinions vary widely from no overlap at all, to a maximum of 12 years. There are many difficulties with Akhenaten (originally named Amenhotep 4). Artwork depicting the royal family at the start of his reign is fairly typical of Egyptian iconography. By after a few years it radically changes in many ways. King and queen are shown the same size, rather than the queen being substantially smaller to show lesser importance. The depiction of family relationships is unique in its detail and extent, and public displays of affection between king and queen are shown, as is intimacy ...

... language the aims and pitfalls of historiography and a revised chronology. Weche pays tribute to past and present researchers and revisers, especially Velikovsky and Diop, also Peter James and David Rohl, Bernal, Ginenthal, Heinsohn, Peiser, Cochran, Whelton etc. He questions the basis for believing entirely any source, be it Biblical, Greek, Egyptian, written on papyrus or inscribed in stone. He reintroduces African and Asian origins of what later became Western civilisation. Still in the introduction, he states that the first chronology needing revision is the Egyptian. Then he lists 7 myths which have plagued one-world scholarship. 1. Uniformitarianism Hutton-Lyall-Darwin. Venus played a role similar to, but ...
315. The Saturn Thesis (Part 3) [Journals] [Aeon]
... funda-mental meanings to determine if the extraordinarily specific predictions of the model are confirmed. Both the recorded form of the "sun" pictographs and the role of the three named planets in constituting the celestial form are crucial here. In the mid-to-late eighties, in addition to many other threads of research, I began examining as rigorously as possible the Egyptian pictograph of Ra in relation to key Egyptian images. I'd like to take a moment to follow the reasoning in terms of the actual evolution of my own conclusions, because my reasoning from some fairly complex considerations actually led to a precise prediction that was quickly confirmed in sources outside of Egypt. As often occurs, the confirmations can be ...

317. The Nature of the Historical Record [Journals] [SIS Review]
... . The literary part of this heritage comprised the Old and New Testaments and enough of the works of the most important Greek and Latin authors to provide at least an outline, and sometimes even more, of the history of the ancient world from the Greek struggle for independence against the Persians early in the fifth century BC. Unfortunately, the Egyptian, Assyrian and Babylonian sources for the period before the fifth century were lost as the languages in which they were written fell first into disuse, then into oblivion, as Greek and Latin became the common means of communication among civilised men in the hellenised Roman Empire. Much of the cultural heritage of these peoples was translated into Greek and ...

... 1999) dealt with events chronologically subsequent to those in The Genesis of Israel and Egypt. Here the reader saw that Egypt's Pyramid Age occurred after the catastrophic disturbances which marked the Israelite Exodus, an event which brought to an end the Early Dynastic epoch. In The Pyramid Age too we found that the Assyrian conquest of Egypt, which the Egyptians recalled as the invasion of the Hyksos, occurred early in the 8th century BC, and was accomplished by a king known to history as Sargon I, founder of the Akkadian (or Old Assyrian) Empire. Sargon (or Sharek, as the Egyptians remembered him) easily overthrew the Egyptian army because he employed weaponry far in advance ...

... but reference points are not numbered in the text. Instead, if you want more information, you simply look up the relevant page number at the back and hope the point you are interested in is the subject of a further reference. His conclusion, after much research, discussion and speculation, is that tomb KV55, unlike all other Egyptian tombs, was designed not to keep robbers out but to keep a malevolent spirit trapped inside. To find out how and why this came about, read on. Summary of the Story The book starts with a good detailed account of the discovery of KV55 and the problem of identifying the mummy. Well over half the book is concerned ...
