    Default Couple Questions

    A couple questions..

    1. "Pharaoh THOTHMOSIS knew the secret of the serpent staff even as he was in his grave SET. In his tomb were the secrets revealed to eyes that shouldn’t see the wonder."

    Has anyone figured out the meaning of this monthly clue? I understand that SET is an egyptian god... but the sentence doesn't grammatically make sense. The word SET seems to be added to the end of the first sentence without any words to link it to the start.

    2. Is there any consensus on what the historic artifact that the key was discovered on is?

    Thanks

    EDL- Welcome to the forum. I will do my best to give as much information as to my understanding of this clue, but couldn't say that it is necessarily consensus.

    BTW- I believe that "historic artifact" should be interpreted somewhat loosely, an artifact as in, say, a form/idea/or drawing could suffice as well. Duncan recently mentioned on the Mysterious Writings site that the lock for the key can be learned from looking at the works of Euclid or of the work of Kepler. These are both related to geometry- "earth measurement".

    Clue-
    "Pharaoh THOTHMOSIS knew the secret of the serpent staff even as he was in his grave SET. In his tomb were the secrets revealed to eyes that shouldn’t see the wonder."

    Several have already speculated and perhaps guessed correctly that Thoth-mosis and Mosis have implicit similarities in terms of naming. Furthermore, according to the Maranatha text we read about "III" shepherds whom are also referred to with the three names of "Michael, Hermes, Thoth", whom it is being implied represent the same figures in different, yet closely related cultures. We are thus led to discover that there were three pharaohs named "Thutmose", a name which means "Thoth is born". So you that "Thoth was born" three times (Michael, Hermes, Thoth). (Also similar theme to Hermes Trismegistus, "Hermes thrice-great").

    So we are thus looking for a tomb of Thutmose. As there is not much to find in looking for the debatable tombs of Thutmose I (buried in one place, reburied in another by his grandson, the III), Thutmose II (no one is sure if it has been found); we find in the tomb of Thutmose III some interesting drawings on the walls.

    What is discovered on the walls of the tomb of Thutmose III is the earliest complete form of the Amduat, also known as the "Book of the Hidden Chamber", or "Text of the Hidden Chamber Which is in the Underworld". It would be advisable to compare this "hidden chamber" with the "secret vault of Enoch" of freemasonry that one discovers, removes the capstone to enter and is lowered into.

    What is quite revealing regarding the Amduat text is its book of hours:

    "In hour 1 the sun god enters the western horizon (akhet) which is a transition between day and night. In hours 2 and 3 he passes through an abundant watery world called 'Wernes' and the 'Waters of Osiris'. In hour 4 he reaches the difficult sandy realm of Sokar, the underworld hawk deity, where he encounters dark zig zag pathways which he has to negotiate, being dragged on a snake-boat. In hour 5 he discovers the tomb of Osiris which is an enclosure beneath which is hidden a lake of fire, the tomb is covered by a pyramid like mound (identified with the goddess Isis) and on top of which Isis and Nephthys have alighted in the form of two kites (birds of prey).

    In the sixth hour the most significant event in the underworld occurs. The ba (or soul) of Ra unites with his own body, or alternatively with the ba of Osiris within the circle formed by the mehen serpent. This event is the point at which the sun begins its regeneration; it is a moment of great significance, but also danger, as beyond it in hour 7 the adversary Apep (Apophis) lies in wait and has to be subdued by the magic of Isis, and the strength of Set assisted by Serqet. Once this has been done the sun god opens the doors of the tomb in hour 8 and then leaves the sandy island of Sokar by rowing vigorously back into the waters in hour 9. In hour 10 the regeneration process continues through immersion in the waters until in hour 11 the god's eyes (a symbol for his health and well being) are fully regenerated. In hour 12 he enters the eastern horizon ready to rise again as the new day's sun."

    This passage about the 12 hours should also be taken in consideration with the clue: "Whether you began over a year ago or yesterday, it takes only a day to look and find the secret." Of course it takes 12 hours to complete a full resolution around the clock.

    If you look closely at the drawings, the serpents have a peculiar trait of being able to transport characters without their their making physical effort. Something to consider.

    The staffs of Moses and Aaron have much to do with serpents as well. Moses raised (upright) a staff with a brazen (bronze/gold) serpent twisting up around it. Aaron threw his staff to the ground in the Pharoah's court and his staff turned into a serpent and devoured all the other court magician's staffs. These staffs have a peculiar ability to go from this form: "I" to this: "O".

    To understand the meaning of the staff, we have to ask who wields the staff? Answer: a shepherd. Who is the shepherd? Answer: not the tiller of the field. The tiller of the field is still tied to the earth, toiling with soil, the seasonal cycles and the chance of the weather. A life of speculation. The shepherd: trusts all things will come to him.

    Here is a link to the images and translation of the Amduat: ANCIENT EGYPT : The Book of the Hidden Chamber : Ancient Egyptian Pataphysics of Creation

    For further investigation, look into the deity Sokar, whom is depicted in these drawings and whose epithet is "he who is from Rosetau". Note that Rosetau is another form of the term Rose-Cross.

    Then Look at the original drawings from the discovery of the cave at the intersection of Icknield and Ermine (Royston) and what used to mark this intersection (Roisia's Cross). You begin to see that there is an underground tradition spanning vast distance and time.

    Hello Hayward,

    Thanks for the very informative answer. I was aware of some of what you said, but you expanded on some things which will give me more to look into.

    Regarding the staffs of Moses and Aaron, may I ask where you found that they go from the form of "I" to "O"?

    Thanks

    Hi EDL-

    This idea is developed from the Maranatha text where it states: "So did the demons of life reborn the second son of Hermes Mosis the Priest the shepherd of Midian born again into the royal house until he rose above that death and gazed down with the aid of his brother and revealed the secret mark of Josephs wisdom. It was as his staff turned on the other serpents under Josephs guidance did it consume its tip to assure perfection."

    Its a reference to this:


    The idea can be seen in this also:


    There is an original reason why the Serpent was seen as magic. Later, this symbol was further used to describe something else in development.
