When modern scientists attempt to understand Egyptian hieroglyphics, they have to perceive language in a different way. In the hieroglyphs, the letter is the carrier of the concept and each word is the extended sentence. The words work more like an acronym. For example, you don’t try to pronounce the word, like in English FYI, meaning “for your information”, you would just pronounce it by saying each letter.
For example the hieroglyph that means diving duck, in translation reads “pool of water place of diving duck.”
The hieroglyphs are derived from ancient cosmology in conjunction with the alphabet, so the meaning of the symbols is much more complex. Inscriptions at the temple of Carnac suggest that the Egyptians aligned their buildings to the constellations of Orion and the Big Dipper. They placed great significance on the placement of light during the Winter and Summer solstice to such precision that the alignments are still accurate today.
Napta Playa is a less explored piece of the Egyptian puzzle that has a settlement dating from 6000 B.C., and a Roman settlement dating from the 2nd century. This area might hold the key to lost knowledge of the ancient cultures that lived in what is now Egypt. The idea being that there were so many settlements in the city over recorded time that there could be clues about older cultures and lost information in the ruins. In the playa sediments, a stone called the “cow stone” was discovered sculpted out of the bedrock, suggesting the age of the civilization is older. It shows that they tracked the seasons, through the study of the stars and the sun. They used astronomy and cosmology to track the monsoons. The blocks remaining in the megalithic monuments show a double alignment to he Orion Belt, then Sirius, and the Big Dipper, as a means to track them over a long period of time. The constellation of Taurus was represented by the bull and theories have been posed that the worship of cows is related to the age of Taurus, but there is not an accepted theory, merely connections that have not been recognized publicly.
In nearby Mali, the Dogan culture uses many symbols and cosmology, just as the ancient Egyptians. The Dogan priests have given insight into the true meaning of Egyptian symbols. The hieroglyph for the “Spider Web” is translated by Dogan priest’s to mean “String Theory”. The word for “Water” in Egyptian hieroglyphs in the Dogan science is “Electromagnetic energy.” Using this knowledge, the ancient Egyptian view of sacred cosmology takes on a deeper meaning. It lends credence that the ancient Egyptian cosmology might have been far more advanced and might give insight into the modern study of physics. In modern physics have established 200 fundamental particles, but a Dogan priest would answer 266. The priests have accurate constellation maps that match the most modern projections that they claim were given to them by their Gods.
The area has had vast changes in geology and climate over the history of Earth, which is apparent in the rocks in the region. The Western desert of Egypt is rainless, but there is evidence that the area had a temperate climate 130,000 years ago. After that period it was hyper-arid until around 12,000 B.C, but inhabitants were recorded until around 3400 B.C, when the area was temporarily abandoned. There are ancient cave paintings that have not been explored and might hold clues to our prehistoric past. Predynastic Egyptian consisted of a set of belief systems that cult based and the cow was considered sacred, much like in Hinduism. Prehistoric rock art shows humans and cattle lending to the theory that these cults interacted and were nomadic tribes. The tribes still track the sun to navigate their lives.
