    The Papyrus of Ani -Egyptian Book of the Dead

    E. A. Wallis Budge did a faithful but uninspired research of this book some say connects with other books of the Dead. In fact he was under the thumb of Christianity and made himself a fool from the vantage point of what we know today, even though many people are still under the spell of lies told by those paid to support the historical fictions we have built nations and Empires of elites around. If you cannot see the effort and lie in how the book starts and drops derisive names upon the prior beliefs (of the great builders) then you should keep doing whatever drugs you need and don't bother reading the book.

    "THE BOOK OF THE DEAD

    The Papyrus of Ani

    by

    E. A. WALLIS BUDGE

    Late keeper of Assyrian and Egyptian Antiquities

    in the British Museum

    [1895]


    THE LEGEND OF OSIRIS.

    The main features of the Egyptian religion constant.

    The chief features of the Egyptian religion remained unchanged from the Vth and VIth dynasties down to the period when the Egyptians embraced Christianity, after the preaching of St. Mark the Apostle in Alexandria, A.D. 69, so firmly had the early beliefs taken possession of the Egyptian mind; and the Christians in Egypt, or Copts as they are commonly called, the racial descendants of the ancient Egyptians, seem never to have succeeded in divesting themselves of the superstitious and weird mythological conceptions which they inherited from their heathen ancestors. It is not necessary here to repeat the proofs, of this fact which M. Amélineau has brought together,[1] or to adduce evidence from the lives of the saints, martyrs and ascetics; but it is of interest to note in passing that the translators of the New Testament into Coptic rendered the Greek {Greek a!'dhs} by ###, amenti, the name which the ancient Egyptians gave to the abode of man after death,[3] and that the Copts peopled it with beings whose prototypes are found on the ancient monuments.

    Persistence of the legend of Osiris and the belief in the resurrection."

    You should read this book to grasp what impact the cult of the Dead with all of the drugs associated may have had on the elite and thus upon all other people. If you think aliens built the Great Pyramid or had anything to do with it - you are probably doing drugs.

    In the section on the Book and it's relationship with the Great Pyramid we have these important words. I say the Osirian culture was indeed important and part of the culture that built the Great Pyramid. When Nat Geo was promoting their TV Channel about a decade ago they said the most important question was "who built the Great Pyramid". I agree but Hawass was still in control of it and access to it. Will this question be addressed now that he is gone? We do not need access to it, in order to say who were the builders. It was not alien!

    "Marsham Adams proposed that the unique system of passages and chambers (particularly the Grand Gallery, obviously unnecessary in a tomb) has an allegorical significance only explained by reference to the Egyptian “Book of the Dead”. The famous Egyptologist, Sir Gaston Maspero endorsed his thesis and added,

    “The Pyramids and the Book of the Dead reproduce the same original, the one in words, the other in stone.”
    Can we find meaning and answers to the mystery of the Great Pyramid by studying the Egyptian “Book of the Dead” and its relationship to the Great Pyramid?

    What is the Egyptian “Book of the Dead”? It was believed by the ancient Egyptians that “Thoth” wrote the “Book of the Dead”. He was the scribe to the gods and was the one responsible for speaking the words of creation and putting it into effect. Its name is not a correct description of it. It should be named the “Chapters of the Coming Forth by Day”. It is mainly concerned with the state of the departed soul and its trials and existences in the afterlife. According to one of the world’s experts on the “Book of the Dead”, Sir Wallis Budge, it was not of Egyptian origin but its ideas were brought to Egypt by a different culture and people.

    Scholars speculate that these people were in existence prior to the first dynasty. There has been much speculation of who these people were but the bottom line is that no one knows. We do know that the changes in Egypt at that time were sudden and highly radical. The building of the Great Pyramid is a good example. It appeared out of nowhere from a primitive stone and flint culture, the sudden flowering of a culture that has never been repeated. Also it appears since iron has been found in the Great Pyramid and was part of the original structure, this invading culture brought the Iron Age to Egypt at least 2000 years earlier than scholars date it."

    In a separate section we see the four pillars fiction which later Roman Christians used as part of their Pope at the Center of the Universe cosmological CONstruct. But of course, it is not called weird or any other names he used to make his beliefs uppermost in the eye of his viewers.

    "THE ABODE OF THE BLESSED.

    The Egyptian heaven.

    The gods of the Egyptians dwelt in a heaven with their ka's, and khu's, and shadows, and there they received the blessed dead to dwell with them. This heaven was situated in the sky, which the Egyptians believed to be like an iron ceiling, either flat or vaulted, and to correspond in extent and shape with the earth beneath it. This ceiling was rectangular, and was supported at each corner by a pillar; in this idea, we have, as M. Maspero has observed, a survival of the roof-tree of very primitive nations. At a very early date the four pillars were identified with "the four ancient khu's who dwell in the hair of Horus," who are also said to be "the four gods who stand by the pillar-sceptres of heaven." These four gods are "children of Horus," and their names are Amset, Hapi, Tuamautef, and Qebhsennuf. They were supposed to preside over the four quarters of the world, and subsequently were acknowledged to be the gods of the cardinal points."

    And although we know we have been conscious and civilized for millions of years more than we were taught when I went to school we still have the Bible Narrative history being force fed to us, and our laws are still derived from the era of scholastic feudal tyranny. That era is longer than the ages we call DARK. I am a student of the paranormal and parapsychology but damned if I can figure out why this denial continues.

    "Many authors claim that it is a “fact” that “civilisation” began ca. 6000 years in Sumer. The concept of the origins of Mankind to 4004 BC, based on biblical dating and symbolised by Bishop Usher, have been replaced with the notion that civilisation occurred pretty much at the same time.

    The never articulated question is what Mankind did in the preceding 30,000 years of its existence. Nothing? This is pretty much what some people think… Fortunately, those people are wrong. Richard Rudgley’s 1999 book The Lost Civilisations of the Stone Age: A Journey Back to Our Cultural Origins is a point in hand. Rudgley presented an overview of scattered items of information, but the most underreported yet best known aspect of that period is that 15,000 years ago, our ancestors created the most stunning paintings, in the deepest caves.

    Lascaux in France and Altamira in Spain are but two examples of an ever growing list of caves where explorers have chanced across stunning depictions of life tens of thousands of years ago. It seems that each suitable cave was used by our ancestors for this artwork.

    An important question to ask is why these depictions are discovered in the deepest nooks of caves. What made our ancestors make these drawings in these inaccessible places, where there was little chance of these paintings serving any social function. The question as to why our ancestors painted these drawings is furthermore riddled with preconceptions. In 1865, Sir Edward Tylor argued that there was a correspondence between magic and prehistoric art. Other experts, such as Abbé Henri Breuil, interpreted these as “hunting magic”, where the depictions were made for their “magical power” over the animal that would be killed. As a consequence, the animal would be killed more easily. However, such thinking is highly illogical. For this logic to work, it would mean that for every animal hunted, a painting would be created. This seems highly improbable. Indeed, such an interpretation was in the end too naïve: a later overview would reveal that only 15 percent of depictions were of animals that played any role whatsoever in the hunt.

    Religious art

    When these paintings were created, the mammoth was still extant. Many archaeologists proclaimed these paintings were hunting scenes, but this conclusion is now no longer supported.

    To repeat the question: what is it that persuaded our ancestors to penetrate the innermost darkness of a cave and paint? Amongst those who have tried to answer this question is David Lewis-Williams, a South African scientist who felt that the status quo on the subject matter was inadequate. For some reasons, our ancestors were attracted to those darkest regions of the Underworld, which was carefully explored and became a workshop to express the earliest expressions of “art”. Still, it was not art; it was religious art: the art had a purpose. The caves became the cathedrals of the Stone Age, with the paintings depicting the core of their religious beliefs.

    This theory as such was nothing new. In the first decades of the 20th century, several researchers had catalogued the prehistoric caves, specifically in France and Spain. Each researcher tried to build a theory that might explain what he had discovered, but it seemed that each subsequent discovery invalidated the previous theory. One such theory was that the series of paintings found in the caves were part of a pattern, whereby certain depictions were only found in certain parts of the cave system (e.g. near the entrance or in the deepest reaches). However, this theory was proven inadequate, resulting in the common “understanding” that it was very difficult, if not impossible, to make sense of what our ancestors had been doing… In short, it was felt that the art work, however “brilliant” for our “primitive ancestors” had been nothing more than random paintings in caves – without any further logic.
    Lewis-Williams thought differently. He felt that a pattern did exist. He also felt that the paintings were a clear distinguishing factor between our ancestors – modern man – and its “nephews”, such as Neanderthal man.

    According to Lewis-Williams, Neanderthal man, despite his close proximity, did not possess an “imagination” in the sense that we do: we are the only being on this planet that is able to create “art”: draw images of the mind – for a purpose, whatever purpose that is. He also identified that what was depicted were images of the mind: visions, i.e. what the mind observed when it was in another “reality” – possibly another aspect of our existence that distinguishes us from other creatures. It is clear that our ancestors – or at least some of them – must have experienced altered states of consciousness. It is equally clear that this must have greatly intrigued them – as it continues until the present day, even though our modern society has pushed it into the criminal underworld, which is almost as dark as the inside of the caves. But in prehistoric times, Lewis-Williams argues, those visions would be the foundation for the creation of our religion, beginning with the belief in an “Otherworld” beyond our normal, physical senses. In this respect, the caves were indeed the first cathedral, of mankind’s proto religion."

    Neanderthal Man drew art or another hominid did over 500,000 years ago - in far off Indonesia. This tripe still assumes lies are true - like the lies or errors of Haeckel who put the Neanderthal bones together and left out a few so he looked hunched. I and many Europods have Neanderthal blood - it is a now proven fact. But remember what Budge said about these heathens and weird people who seek knowledge in sacred places rather than building temples to hide what they do, with people they abuse and worse.
