Throughout history humanity has found answers in discoveries hidden beneath the surface, often of this planet, this little volcanic rock, that is a small yet integral part of a larger universe in which we have come to understand that we are not alone.
Many of us have a desire at some point in our lives to go on a quest, often an archaeological dig in an area that calls to our soul. Lost within the sands of time we hope to find something left behind that are a part of our soul, waiting to unfold.
We are programmed to discovery our quests and dreams, then are guided to follow them to completion, even at the cost of disappointing ourselves and others, financial loss, or whatever challenges we meet along the way. For in truth it is all about the journey and its wondrous discoveries.
May 9 is day is the anniversary of the birth of Howard Carter, one of the most prominent archaeologists of the 20th Century. Certainly Egypt is one of the places where many have gone to dig as its geometry and pyramids tells us that answers lie beneath.
Carter was guided to his destiny after many failures. He was more or less the Zahi of his timeline and would be very proud of current finds in ancient Egypt, the home of the gods.
Last week I wrote a short screenplay called Out of Africa mentioning the current discoveries found in Saqqara and Ethiopia- and how it all comes around through the loops of time, the Mobius Loop.
In design, the tomb appears to have originally been intended for a private individual, not for royalty. There is some evidence to suggest that the tomb was hastily adapted for a royal occupant during its excavation. This is supported by the fact that only the burial chamber walls were decorated, unlike royal tombs in which nearly all walls were painted with scenes from the Book of the Dead.
The tomb was literally packed with items, but they were in great disarray. And yet, Carter was able to photograph garlands of flowers, which of course disintegrated when touched. Due to the state of the tomb, and to Carter's meticulous recording technique, the tomb took nearly a decade to empty, the contents all being transported to the Egyptian Museum in Cairo.
Even though Tutankhamun was a minor pharaoh, for the first time, it was possible to get an idea of the riches which were buried with an Egyptian king, and they were truly astounding. Considering also that his tomb was somewhat small, one can only wonder what more important Pharaohs had buried with them.
It is often said that Tutankhamun's tomb was never violated, but this is not true. In fact, it was entered at least twice, and not long after he was buried. There is clear evidence that the sealed doors were breached in the upper corners, and later resealed. It is estimated that 60% of the jewelry which had been stored in the so-called "Treasury" was removed. Necropolis officials tried to set things right, but they did so hastily, repacking boxes with the wrong objects (based on inscription on the boxes themselves). And the outermost doors of the shrines enclosing the king's nested coffins had been opened., Wikipedia
For those into ancient artifacts and mysteries, let's go to November 4, 1922 when Howard Carter first found the tomb, then to February 16, 1923 the day Howard Carter first saw the sarcophagus of King Tutankhamun.
There are always degrees of positives and negatives to every story/insert created in humanity's history, this being no exception.
Was there a curse, as if a booby trap, set in motion for those who would seek to open the tomb, or can science explain the deaths surrounding the events of that scenario? I believe it was more about science than magic, and yet I understand they are one and the same often overlapping in time. Whenever fixing the answers to the unexplained of your experiences, always look for to science first then to pseudoscience. This is especially true of the photos taken that appear as spirit but generally have scientific explanation.
Egypt's "King Tut Curse" Caused by Tomb Toxins?
Stories of "the mummy's curse" or "King Tut's curse" excited the world after the discovery in 1922 of the ancient pharaoh's tomb in Egypt. Lord Carnarvon, a British sponsor of archaeology in Egypt, died shortly after attending the tomb's opening, inspiring speculation that supernatural forces were at work. In recent years a scientific mummy's-curse theory was offered for Carnarvon's death. Was he killed by exposure to ancient, toxic pathogens from the sealed tomb? Did they prove too much for his immune system, which was weakened by a chronic illness he had experienced before he went to Egypt?"
From the late 1800's forward in time, humanity would go on to make some of the greatest discoveries in science, technology, and space. It would all be part of the ancient Egyptian Gods creating a path to enlighten humanity.
King Tut was the 12th King of the 18th Dynasty, Metaphors. Some believe him to be the son of the Pharaoh Akhenaten which takes us to the first insert on monotheism, the sun/god connection, in the evolution of consciousness.
Visualization .... Close your eyes. See yourself in the garb of the present-day archaeologist. Don't forget your hat as we all wear many hats in this experiment! Take the tools you think you will need to find some of value as you go on an expedition anywhere in the universe, even in time. You can travel alone or with others but remember this journey is, in fact, yours alone.
Take your time but remember what you experience, learn, and discover when you return Home. Knowledge is sacred and the greater part of consciousness.
