Ankh It represents the concept of eternal life, which is the general meaning of the symbol.[citation needed] The Egyptian gods are often portrayed carrying it by its loop, or bearing one in each hand, arms crossed over their chest. Origin[edit] The origin of the symbol remains a mystery to Egyptologists, and no single hypothesis has been widely accepted. It is by Egyptologists called the symbol of life. An ankh-shaped mirror case History[edit] A symbol similar to the ankh appears frequently in Minoan and Mycenaean sites. The ankh also appeared frequently in coins from ancient Cyprus and Asia Minor (particularly the city of Mallus in Cilicia).[9] In some cases, especially with the early coinage of King Euelthon of Salamis, the letter ku, from the Cypriot syllabary, appeared within the circle ankh, representing Ku(prion) (Cypriots).

Instanbul Shem RocketShip Is this a replica (see photo) of an ancient single-seat rocket-ship? That’s what it looks like to Zecharia Sitchin, the leading authority and scholar on the Ancient Astronaut theory. Hidden away in the Istanbul Archaeology Museum in Turkey for a quarter of a century, Sitchin recently convinced the Museum that this artifact may indeed be ancient, and not the modern forgery they concluded it must be, simply because our current view of our ancient history doesn’t include rocket-ships. In his article in Atlantis Rising Magazine, Issue 15, Sitchin describes this object as, "a sculpted scale model of what, to modern eyes, looks like a cone-nosed rocket-ship… Powered by a cluster of four exhaust engines in the back surrounding a larger exhaust engine, the rocket-ship has room for a sole pilot—actually shown and included in the sculpture." Sitchin spent years tracking down the artifact, until he located it at the Archaeology Museum in Istanbul. from "De Goden en de Broederschappen" Dr.

Da'at The location where all ten sefirot in the Tree of Life are united as one In Daʻat, all sefirot exist in their perfected state of infinite sharing. The three sefirot of the left column that would receive and conceal the Divine light, instead share and reveal it. Since all sefirot radiate infinitely self-giving Divine Light, it is no longer possible to distinguish one sefira from another; thus they are one. Daʻat is not always depicted in representations of the sefirot; and could be abstractly considered an "empty slot" into which the germ of any other sefirot can be placed. Properly, the Divine Light is always shining, but not all humans can see it. The revelation or the concealment of the Divine Light shining through Daʻat does not happen only in Daʻat itself. As a representative sefirah[edit] Properly, Daʻat is not a sefirah, but rather is all ten sefirot united as one. As spiritual state[edit] As aspect of intellect[edit] Levels[edit] Daʻat operates on two levels. Lower level[edit]

The Egyptian Ankh Cross Found In Mexico The Egyptian Ankh cross found in Mexico. Image Credit: commons.wikimedia. Calixtlahuaca, present day Toluca has one of the most mysterious objects discovered in Mexico. The Monument number 4, Cross Altar or Tzompantli share an incredible similarity to the Ankh cross in ancient Egypt. The ankh also known as key of life was the ancient Egyptian hieroglyphic character that read “life”. But what is the Ankh symbol doing in Mexico? The Tzompantli present at Calixtlahuaca is a cross altar decorated with skulls, it had skulls carved in stone embedded around the structure. We know that the Egyptian civilization and the Aztec civilization where similar in many ways both civilizations built pyramids, used solar symbolism, and both believed in life after death. the fact that these two ancient civilizations apparently share the same symbolism is something that archaeologists will probably look better into. Both of these cultures had a similar use of the “Tau” cross.

Zerubbabel Zerubbabel (Hebrew: זְרֻבָּבֶל, Zərubbāvel; Greek: ζοροβαβελ, Zŏrobabel) was the leader of the first group of Jews, numbering 42,360, who returned from the Babylonian Captivity in the first year of Cyrus, King of Persia c. 538 B.C.E.

The Concept of the Djed Pillar Copyright © 2002 by Vincent Brown Legend of Osiris | Body of Osiris | Four Pillars of Heaven | Four Sons of Horus | Ba-Neb-Djed One of the most enigmatic symbols of Ancient Egypt is the Tet, or Djed. Although it was widely used as a religious icon throughout much of the history and geography of Ancient Egypt, it is still not clearly understood what the Djed was originally conceived to represent.Determining its meaning from its appearance alone is not an easy task so we shall take some of the suggested definitions and analyse each individually. Typical Distinctive Features: Four horizontal bars surmounting a vertical shaft Vertical striations between each bar These striations are shown in profile on the sides of the Djed creating a curved appearance Four bands around neck of the shaft Sometimes a small capital can be seen surmounting the Djed The Djed often stands on a rectangular base Scenes depicting the 'Raising of the Djed' ceremony A Tree: Osiris-Seker entombed inside the trunk of a tree

The 7,000-year-old Ubaid Lizardmen At the Archaeological site fo Al-Ubaid, researchers have found numerous pre-sumerian artifacts dating back at least 7,000 years, between these items strange looking figurines have been discovered with a very strange look. a combination of human and lizard-like features combined. The Ubaid period is a prehistoric period of Mesopotamia, the place where according to many, modern civilization was kick-started with the Sumerians. The name derives from Tell al-‘Ubaid where the earliest large excavation of Ubaid period material was conducted. The Ubaid Culture is characterized by large village settlements, with the construction of mud-brick houses with elaborate design, and the appearance of the first temples of public architecture. According to researchers it was during this period that a lot of advancements in society were made, people started to think differently and act differently.

The 10,000 year-old Sumerian space maps, dictated by ET Homo Sapiens from Planet Nibiru Excerpt from “Anunnaki: legacy of the Gods, techno-savvy ET s from the Planet Nibiru who came for gold, created us from their genome to work the mines, posed as Gods, decided to let us drown, but then decided to breed us to work for them.” Sumerians’ rocket route maps and clay tablets show planets past eye-range. The Sumerians wrote that giant people, whom the Sumerians called “Anunnaki” or Those-Descended-from-the-Sky, said they came from the planet Nibiru 450,000 years ago. The Nibirans were 7-12 foot-tall Homo Sapiens goldminers who came mine Earth’s gold. Clay tablet in the ruins of the Royal Library at Nineva shows how to go through inner solar system. In Andy Lloyd’s scenario, their planet, Nibiru, revolves around Nemesis, Solaris’ binary dark dwarfstar; this, from the perspective of Earth, is as far from Earth as Nibiru goes. Sumerians lacked telescopes and couldn't see Uranus’ and Neptune’s orbits the route maps show. One of the geometrical drawings are the Nazca lines.

The origins of human beings according to ancient Sumerian texts Sumer, or the ‘land of civilized kings’, flourished in Mesopotamia, now modern-day Iraq, around 4500 BC. Sumerians created an advanced civilization with its own system of elaborate language and writing, architecture and arts, astronomy and mathematics. Their religious system was a complex one comprised of hundreds of gods. According to the ancient texts, each Sumerian city was guarded by its own god; and while humans and gods used to live together, the humans were servants to the gods. The Sumerian creation myth can be found on a tablet in Nippur, an ancient Mesopotamian city founded in approximately 5000 BC. The creation of Earth ( Enuma Elish ) according to the Sumerian tablets begins like this: Sumerian mythology claims that, in the beginning, human-like gods ruled over Earth. The texts mention that at some point the gods mutinied against their labour. When the gods like men Bore the work and suffered the toll The toil of the gods was great, The work was heavy, the distress was much.

Two Stone Age 9,500-Year-Old Artifacts Unearthed - Archaeologists have unearthed two Stone Age figurines – c. 9,500 year old – in Tel Motza located between Jerusalem and Tel Aviv. The ancient figurines, found in excavations prior to widening Highway 1 in the area, depict a ram and a wild pig or buffalo. The ram, made from limestone, has intricately carved horns and is about 15 centimeters. The second figurine is more abstract and depicts a large animal with prominent horns that could be a bovine or buffalo. A rare early neolithic ram figurine. Anna Eirikh, the other co-director of the dig, believes that the figurines are linked to the process of animal domestication, as the inhabitants began to build complex societies and agricultural villages. Wild bovine. However, according to another theory, the figurines were used as talismans. A statement released by the IAA said the figurines could have been either good luck hunting icons or a representation of the animal’s domestication. Original source: - here

Tărtăria tablets The Tărtăria tablets are three tablets, discovered in 1961 by archaeologist Nicolae Vlassa at a Neolithic site in the village of Tărtăria (about 30 km (19 mi) from Alba Iulia), in Romania. The tablets, dated to around 5300 BC,[2] bear incised symbols - the Vinča symbols - and have been the subject of considerable controversy among archaeologists, some of whom claim that the symbols represent the earliest known form of writing in the world. In 1961, members of a team led by Nicolae Vlassa, an archaeologist at the National Museum of Transylvanian History, Cluj-Napoca in charge of the site excavations, unearthed three inscribed but unbaked clay tablets, together with 26 clay and stone figurines and a shell bracelet, accompanied by the burnt, broken, and disarticulated bones of an adult male.[3] Two of the tablets are rectangular and the third is round. All three have symbols inscribed only on one face. Earlier discoveries[edit] Dating[edit] Interpretation[edit] See also[edit] Notes[edit]

The Mexican Government Reveals Mayan Documents Proving Extraterrestrial Contact The reality of extraterrestrial contact with human civilization is becoming more clear by the month as streams of information about the extraterrestrial presence and past influence hits. While some of us still have our doubts about ET contact, many are starting to realize the truth that has been talked about for centuries. One big story involves the Mexican government who has released documents and images of objects found on the site of Calakmul, Mexico which help prove the reality of ET contact. Thanks for this release can be given to the National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH) who found these fascinating disks in Mexico. This new discovery strikes a hefty blow to the secrecy that has been purposely created surrounding the true history of our earth. “Mexico will release codices, artefacts and significant documents with evidence of Mayan and extraterrestrial contact, and all of their information will be corroborated by archaeologists,” he said.

The Disappearance Of The Children Of Viracocha - Cuzco: The City Which The Inca Found, Not Founded - Part 3 By: Brien Foerster - - The greatest mystery about the Inca is not their accomplishments, but their origins. Where could such a sophisticated culture have come from? It is well written through accounts of the conquistadors, and Inca descendants that these people came to Cuzco as a fully developed society; teaching agriculture, metallurgy, animal husbandry, textile weaving, and the arts of warfare and politics, amongst other civilizing pursuits, to seemingly less developed people who were already inhabiting the area. Cultures clearly don’t appear out of no where fully developed, unless they just climbed out of a space ship; and I am not going to entertain this idea in this paper; such an idea is both too far fetched and too easy, at the same time. Tiwanku and the Island of the Sun in Lake Titicaca are the most commonly believed source places of the Inca. (or Tiahuanaco) is clearly a mysterious place. Between 1927 and 1930 Prof. An aberration?

Dropa Stone Discs The Dropa Stone Discs As humanity searches for its extraterrestrial roots, amount the enigmatic objects found along the way are the Drop Stones of Tibet. Who were the Dropa? The Dropa (also known as Dropas, Drok-pa or Dzopa) are, according to certain controversial writers, a race of dwarf-like extraterrestrials who landed near the Chinese-Tibetan border some twelve thousand years ago. Skeptics note, however, a number of problems with the case (and a lack of corroborative evidence), which offers significant doubt as to the reality of the more sensationalistic Dropa claims. Mainstream critics argue that the entire affair is a hoax. Alleged Discovery -- Chi Pu Tei, a professor of archaeology at Beijing University, and his students were on an expedition to explore a series of caves in the pathless Himalayan mountains of the remote Bayan-Kara-Ula in Qinghai on the border of China and Tibet. They found many neat rows of tombs with short 4 ft 4 in inch skeletons buried within. Dr. Corroboration

"Syria's Stonehenge" - Underground Tombs Alignments And Stone Circles Older Than Anything Seen In Europe - Today, it's the Syrian desert with unknown rock formations, stone circles, lines of stone and an ancient monastery with ancient tombs, corridors and walls covered with frescoes. Once upon a time, very long ago, the region was probably much greener. Analysis of fragments of stone tools found in the area suggests the rock formations are much older than the monastery, perhaps dating to the Neolithic Period or early Bronze Age, 6,000 to 10,000 years ago. Deir Mar Musa; interior | 11th -13th century |Damascus | Photographer: James J. In Western Europe megalithic construction involving the use of stone has been dated to as early as ca. 4500 BC. Deir Mar Musa But to conduct archareological research in such region is not an easy task because the political conflict is tearing apart the Middle Eastern nation. Research at the monastery has led to a growing research interest in the archaeology of Christianity and monotheism generally in the Holy Land. Click on image to enlarge
