20 - The Cult of Horus and the Origins of Astronomy - Nr. 20

20 - The Cult of Horus
and the Origins of Astronomy - Nr. 20

I am of the opinion that the three "world-calendars", Maya, Pharaonic, and Hindu, whose start is today dated to the astronomical years -3100, -3113 and -3102 respectively, all had the same common origin and that the date discrepancies are based on miscalculations made by scholars over the millennia. Christine Moore of the Supreme Yoga Council writes in this regard:[45]

"It is noteworthy that the date of 3102 BC ... appears to have been important in the traditions of Ancient Egypt, Central America and other Ancient Civilisations ... the year 3101 BC commemorates the unification of Upper and Lower Egypt. Similarly, in the Maya tradition of Central America, 3114 BC marks the beginning of a New World Age."

The Narmer Palette shows that a new calendar was established:



Figure 14:
The Narmer Palette, front side, top, shows heaven's center


The Narmer Palette, front side, top, represents the center of heaven.
Min = Menes "change of time ". The bull Wpt represents heaven.
Nar-mer viz. Miz-Mar is the "sovereign of the pole", literally "king of Heaven and Earth",
which are now united as Nar (Milky Way) and Mer (Earth).
The four standard-bearers show the four cardinal points of the sky.
Ursa Major was regarded as the ancient heavenly cup or enclosure for the deceased.


4. The Rear Side of the Narmer Palette (see Figure 10)
As shown, the front side of the Narmer Palette has an astronomical, calendric significance. What about the back side? The back side of the Narmer palette (figure 10) shows Narmer as the "sovereign of heaven's pole" vanquishing the solar eclipse. The God of Light defeats the God of Darkness. As written by David Talbott (Footnote 36): "To the Egyptians, the celestial enclosure possessed the magical quality of protecting the inhabitants from the dark...."

    Both book volumes contain the following basic book description:
    "Alice Cunningham Fletcher observed in her 1902 publication in the American Anthropologist
    that there is ample evidence that some ancient cultures in Native America, e.g. the Pawnee in Nebraska,
    geographically located their villages according to patterns seen in stars of the heavens.
    See Alice C. Fletcher, Star Cult Among the Pawnee--A Preliminary Report,
    American Anthropologist, 4, 730-736, 1902.
    Ralph N. Buckstaff wrote:
    "These Indians recognized the constellations as we do, also the important stars,
    drawing them according to their magnitude.
    The groups were placed with a great deal of thought and care and show long study.
    ... They were keen observers....
    The Pawnee Indians must have had a knowledge of astronomy comparable to that of the early white men."
    See Ralph N. Buckstaff, Stars and Constellations of a Pawnee Sky Map,
    American Anthropologist, Vol. 29, Nr. 2, April-June 1927, pp. 279-285, 1927.
    In our book, we take these observations one level further
    and show that megalithic sites and petroglyphic rock carving and pictographic rock art in Native America,
    together with mounds and earthworks, were made to represent territorial geographic landmarks
    placed according to the stars of the sky using the ready map of the starry sky
    in the hermetic tradition, "as above, so below".
    That mirror image of the heavens on terrestrial land is the "Sky Earth" of Native America,
    whose "rock stars" are the real stars of the heavens, "immortalized" by rock art petroglyphs, pictographs,
    cave paintings, earthworks and mounds of various kinds (stone, earth, shells) on our Earth.
    These landmarks were placed systematically in North America, Central America (Meso-America) and South America
    and can to a large degree be reconstructed as the Sky Earth of Native America."
