Shabti of Singer of the Aten, Isis

18th Dynasty, New Kingdom

Amarna Period

This female shabti belonged to a Singer of the Aten, the solar disk worshipped by Akhenaten, and like other shabtis of the period makes no mention of the funerary god Osiris. In a seeming paradox, but one that speaks of the strong psychological and cultural ties of ordinary Egyptians to the traditional religion, the owner’s name is Isis, the name of the great funerary goddess who was the wife of Osiris. the facial features, including the so-called sfumato eyes, closely resemble the style of Amarna.

Coffin and Mummy of Nesmin

Egyptian, Ptolemaic Period

The coffin and mummy belong to an Egyptian priest, Nesmin (pronounced Esmin), who lived during the Ptolemaic Period, an era of Greek domination in Egypt following its conquest by Alexander the Great in 332 BC. The hieroglyphic texts on the lower portion of Nesmin’s coffin lid provide his titles and genealogy. Like his father and many paternal ancestors, he had been a priest of Min, a god of fertility, and also of Khonsu, a god of the moon and healing. His mother played the sistrum (ritual rattle) in the service of Min. As a priest, Nesmin’s duties included clothing the statue of Min and caring for other god’s statues and for their temple home. Nesmin pursued his priestly duties in Middle Egypt at Akhim. The decoration of his coffin reflects a Ptolemaic style typical for that site.

Are there any ancient art specialists here? ‘Cause I have a question.

You know these huge beautiful vases you can easily find at any ancient art exhibition in the world? Everyone’s seen them. They’re about 5 to 6 feet tall, and, due to their size, I can barely see any practical uses for them. Was it just a form of art? I mean, they are beautiful and all, but how come that so many people living in different parts of the world at different times just randomly decided to create these huge useless vessels just for the heck of it?

What’s the deal here? Is there any simple explanation I just keep overlooking?

The Pharaohs of Ancient Egypt Were Alien Hybrids, New Genetic Study Suggests.

A new genetic study suggests a lineage of Egyptian pharaohs were subjected to willful genetic manipulation by a technologically advanced civilization. Some would call this definitive proof that the builders of the pyramids had a strong connection with beings that originated elsewhere in the universe. Stuart Fleischmann and his team have recently published the results of a 7-year study that mapped the genomes of 9 ancient Egyptian Pharaohs. If proven correct, their findings could potentially change the world’s history books.

Fleischmann and his team subjected the precious samples of ancient DNA to a process called Polymerse Chain Reaction (PCR). In the field of molecular biology this technique is often used to replicate and amplify a single copy of a piece of DNA, giving researchers a clear picture of someone’s genetic fingerprint. Eight out of nine samples returned interesting but typical results. The ninth sample belonged to Akhenaten, the enigmatic 14th century BC pharaoh and father of Tutankhamun. A small fragment of desiccated brain tissue had been the source of the DNA sample and the test was repeated using bone tissue but the same results were obtained. One of the culprits was a gene called CXPAC-5, which is responsible for cortex growth. It appears this increased activity in Akhenaten’s genome would suggest he had a higher cranial capacity because of the need to house a larger cortex. But what mutation would have caused a human brain to grow? We have yet to discover such a technique despite years of breakthroughs in genetics. Could this 3,300 year-old evidence point out to ancient genetic manipulation? Was it the work of advanced extraterrestrial beings?

Telomerase (a genetic enzyme) is only expended by two processes: extreme aging and extreme mutation. Genetic and archaeological data suggests Amenhotep IV/Akhenaten lived to about 45 years of age. That is not nearly enough to consume all the chromosomal telomerase, leaving behind one inconvenient but possible explanation.This hypothesis is also backed up by the fact that electron microscope analysis revealed signs of nucleotidic cicatrix, which is a telltale sign of the DNA helix healing after being exposed to strong mutagens. Does this suggest that Akhenaten, one of ancient Egypt’s most mysterious pharaohs, was subjected to genetic modification during his life? If anything, this allegation supports the theory that ancient aliens once visited the civilization that lived along the banks of the Nile. 

If this study is correct, it will trigger an unprecedented paradigm shift. If aliens were actively involved in the life of the most powerful individuals thousands of years ago, does that mean they’ll return? Perhaps they never left at all. But the most important aspect would be the existence of individuals, direct descendants of ancient Egypt’s royal lineage, that still posses the alien genes implanted in their ancestors’ genomes.

Ancient Egyptians Had Their Own Version Of Ayahuasca They Called The “Tree Of Life”

The civilization of Egypt as we know spans back thousands of years to the days when the last great glaciers in the world were melting (10,000 BC). This information, as many of you may know, has been systematically removed and ignored from nearly every history book written in modern times. The Egyptians were an incredibly aware and spiritual society, which had deeply entrenched beliefs about reality as we perceive it as well as the realities that most of us are not aware of. Even their great pyramids were monuments to their god-like leaders. 

Spirituality played a huge role in the lives of Egyptians, and this is depicted in the hieroglyphs that they have left behind on the walls of their tombs or in the fragments of papyrus that are unearthed. Uncovered in this forgotten language are references to the tree of life. I am sure many of you know what I am referring to, the plant Acacia Nilotica. A tree that grows abundantly along the Nile River and was glorified by the Egyptians.
