The Egyptian Book of the Dead Index

The Egyptian Book of the Dead Index
Sacred Texts Egypt The Papyrus of Ani by Introduction Translation Because of the substantial amount of hieroglypics interspersed in the original text, I have omitted the ### 'glyph' placeholder where context permits, for readability. Only actual illustations have been inserted into the file. The file above, which appears at on the Internet at Sacred-Texts for the first time is a faithful e-text of the 1895 edition of the E.A. In November of 2000 I inventoried my library and found that I was missing Budge's Book of the Dead. According to John Mark Ockerbloom, the proprietor of the excellent Online Books Page, the version circulating on the Internet is a highly edited version of Budge from a much later date (1913). "I did a little legwork, and it appears that the "mystery text" is in fact from the Medici Society edition of 1913. Thanks to Mr. In any case, the version now at sacred-texts is a completely new e-text, which I believe to be a much better version of this text. Introduction Related:  Spiritcivilizations

Jesus as a reincarnation of Horus By Kevin Williams Reincarnation is the ancient belief of how the circumstances of our lives are often governed by the karma (both good and bad) of lives we have lived in the past. Bad karma committed in previous lives which are not overcome, means the same negative circumstances will confront the person over and over again in future lives until they are overcome. Jesus was referred to as the chief cornerstone (or "capstone") - a reference to the top stone of an Egyptian pyramid. The story of Horus can be found in "The Egyptian Book of the Dead (also known as the "Papyrus of Ani") written over 3,000 years before the birth of Christ. Rosetta stone Ever since its rediscovery, the stone has been the focus of nationalist rivalries, including its transfer from French to British possession during the Napoleonic Wars, a long-running dispute over the relative value of Young and Champollion's contributions to the decipherment, and since 2003, demands for the stone's return to Egypt. Description[edit] Original stele[edit] One possible reconstruction of the original stele The Rosetta Stone is a fragment of a larger stele. The full length of the hieroglyphic text and the total size of the original stele, of which the Rosetta Stone is a fragment, can be estimated based on comparable stelae that have survived, including other copies of the same order. suggest that it originally had a rounded top.[7][13] The height of the original stele is estimated to have been about 149 centimetres (59 in).[13] Memphis decree and its context[edit] Political forces beyond the borders of Egypt exacerbated the internal problems of the Ptolemaic kingdom.

'Jesus Christ didn't exist' according to Michael Paulkovich who found no mention of him in historical texts | Daily Mail Online Writer Michael Paulkovich has claimed that there is little evidence for a person known as Jesus existing in historyJesus is thought to have lived from about 7BC to 33AD in the Roman EmpireHowever Paulkovich says he found little to no mention of the supposed messiah in 126 texts written in the first to third centuriesOnly one mention of Jesus was present, in a book by Roman historian Josephus Flavius, but he says this was added by later editorsHe says this is surprising despite the ‘alleged worldwide fame’ of JesusAnd this has led him to believe that Jesus was a 'mythical character' By Jonathan O'Callaghan for MailOnline Published: 09:59 GMT, 1 October 2014 | Updated: 10:48 GMT, 2 October 2014 Historical researcher Michael Paulkovich has claimed that Jesus of Nazareth was a ‘mythical character’ and never existed.

Longhouse A longhouse or long house is a type of long, proportionately narrow, single-room building built by peoples in various parts of the world including Asia, Europe and North America. Many were built from timber and often represent the earliest form of permanent structure in many cultures. Types include the Neolithic long house of Europe, the stone Medieval Dartmoor longhouse which also housed livestock, and the various types of longhouses built by different cultures among the indigenous peoples of the Americas. Europe[edit] There are two European longhouse types of designs that are now extinct. The medieval longhouse types of Europe of which some have survived are among others: Dartmoor granite longhouse Medieval development of the Germanic longhouse[edit] The Americas[edit] In South America, the Tucano people of Colombia and northwest Brazil traditionally combine a household in a single long house.

Evidence That the Human Body is a Projection of Consciousness In this article we will explore how your body is a holographic projection of your consciousness, and how you directly influence that hologram and thus have complete control over the physical health of your body. We will also specifically explore the exact mechanism behind this principle, and don’t worry, I will provide scientific evidence so let your rational mind be at ease. But first … how is this even possible? Human Thought Determines Reality One of the key principles of quantum physics is that our thoughts determine reality. Early in the 1900′s they proved this beyond a shadow of a doubt with an experiment called the double slit experiment. For example: electrons under the same conditions would sometimes act like particles, and then at other times they would switch to acting like waves (formless energy), because it was completely dependent on what the observer expected was going to happen. The quantum world is waiting for us to make a decision so that it knows how to behave.

History of Chinese art Chinese art is visual art that, whether ancient or modern, originated in or is practiced in China or by Chinese artists. The Chinese art in the Republic of China (Taiwan) and that of overseas Chinese can also be considered part of Chinese art where it is based in or draws on Chinese heritage and Chinese culture. Early "stone age art" dates back to 10,000 BC, mostly consisting of simple pottery and sculptures. After this early period Chinese art, like Chinese history, is typically classified by the succession of ruling dynasties of Chinese emperors, most of which lasted several hundred years. Chinese art has arguably the oldest continuous tradition in the world, and is marked by an unusual degree of continuity within, and consciousness of, that tradition, lacking an equivalent to the Western collapse and gradual recovery of classical styles. Painting[edit] The two main techniques in Chinese painting are: Sculpture[edit] Pottery[edit] Decorative arts[edit] Neolithic pottery[edit] Pottery[edit]

Ancient Confession Found: 'We Invented Jesus Christ' Jesus Christ: completely constructed from other stories for an ancient Roman propaganda campaign? [Jesus Christ] may be the only fictional character in literature whose entire life story can be traced to other sources. London (PRWEB UK) 8 October 2013 American Biblical scholar Joseph Atwill will be appearing before the British public for the first time in London on the 19th of October to present a controversial new discovery: ancient confessions recently uncovered now prove, according to Atwill, that the New Testament was written by first-century Roman aristocrats and that they fabricated the entire story of Jesus Christ. Although to many scholars his theory seems outlandish, and is sure to upset some believers, Atwill regards his evidence as conclusive and is confident its acceptance is only a matter of time. Was Jesus based on a real person from history? How could this go unnoticed in the most scrutinised books of all time? Is this the beginning of the end of Christianity?

Norse art Timeline for the Norse animal styles. Viking Age art or Norse art is a term for the art of Scandinavia and Viking settlements elsewhere, especially in the British Isles, during the Viking Age. Viking art has many elements in common with Celtic Art, Romanesque art and East-European (Eurasian).[1] Historical Context[edit] Styles[edit] The animal ornamentation of the Viking Age is usually categorized into Oseberg style, Borre style, Jelling style, Mammen style, Ringerike style and Urnes style.[3] Oseberg style[edit] The Oseberg style is a Viking Era animal ornamentation in Viking Age art.[4] It is named after the Oseberg ship grave, a well-preserved Viking age ship discovered in a large burial mound at the Oseberg farm near Tønsberg in Vestfold County, Norway. The characteristic motif of the style is gripping beasts. The main symbol of the Viking Age is the Viking ship. A "Shield List" is where all the shields of the warriors were tied up.

Scientist Photographs The Soul Leaving The Body The timing of astral disembodiment in which the spirit leaves the body has been captured by Russian scientist Konstantin Korotkov, who photographed a person at the moment of his death with a bioelectrographic camera. The image below, taken using the gas discharge visualization method, an advanced technique of Kirlian photography, shows in blue the life force of the person leaving the body gradually. According to Korotkov, navel and head are the parties who first lose their life force (which would be the soul).The groin and the heart, are the last areas where the spirit departs, before surfing the phantasmagoria of the infinite. In other cases according to Korotkov, "the soul" of people who suffer a violent and unexpected death, usually manifests a state of confusion in their power settings, and could return to the body, in the days following death. This could be due to a surplus of unused energy.

Mead Mead (/ˈmiːd/; archaic and dialectal "medd"; from Old English "meodu"[1]), is an alcoholic beverage created by fermenting honey with water, and frequently fruits, spices, grains or hops.[2][3][4] (Hops act as a preservative and produce a bitter, beer-like flavor.) The alcoholic content of mead may range from about 8% ABV[5] to more than 20%. The defining characteristic of mead is that the majority of the beverage's fermentable sugar is derived from honey.[6] It may be still, carbonated or naturally sparkling, and it may be dry, semi-sweet or sweet.[7] Mead is known from many sources of ancient history throughout Europe, Africa and Asia. Claude Lévi-Strauss makes a case for the invention of mead as a marker of the passage "from nature to culture The terms "mead" and "honey-wine" are often used synonymously.[13][14] Honey-wine is differentiated from mead in some cultures. History[edit] Around AD 550, the Brythonic-speaking bard Taliesin wrote the Kanu y med or "Song of Mead Etymology[edit]

Mindfulness meditation training changes brain structure in 8 weeks Mindfulness meditation training changes brain structure in 8 weeks Mass. General-led study shows changes over time in areas associated with awareness, empathy, stress 21/Jan/2011 Participating in an 8-week mindfulness meditation program appears to make measurable changes in brain regions associated with memory, sense of self, empathy and stress. "Although the practice of meditation is associated with a sense of peacefulness and physical relaxation, practitioners have long claimed that meditation also provides cognitive and psychological benefits that persist throughout the day," says Sara Lazar, PhD, of the MGH Psychiatric Neuroimaging Research Program , the study’s senior author. Previous studies from Lazar’s group and others found structural differences between the brains of experienced mediation practitioners and individuals with no history of meditation, observing thickening of the cerebral cortex in areas associated with attention and emotional integration.

Mead hall A reconstructed Viking Age longhouse (28.5 metres long). In ancient Scandinavia and Germanic Europe a mead hall or feasting hall was initially simply a large building with a single room. From the fifth century to early medieval times such a building was the residence of a lord and his retainers. The mead hall was generally the great hall of the king. As such, it was likely to be the safest place in the kingdom. Etymology[edit] The old name of such halls may have been sal/salr and thus be present in old place names such as "Uppsala".[1] The meaning has been preserved in German Saal, Romanian Sala, Dutch zaal, Icelandic salur, Swedish sal, Finnish sali, French salle and Italian sala (all meaning "hall" or "large room"). Archaeology[edit] From around AD 500 up until the Christianization of Scandinavia (by the 13th century), these large halls were vital parts of the political center. Examples that have been excavated include: Southwest of Lejre, Denmark. Precursor[edit] Legends and history[edit]
