Egyptian Astrophysics: The 30-year Cycles – Available on Amazon

Egyptian Astrophysics - cover for blogEGYPTIAN ASTROPHYSICS is the title of my fourth book, which details a great body of information concerning Cyclic Catastrophism contained in ancient Egyptian texts. As such, its value is twofold. 1. It provides exquisite detail which not only reinforces previous works on Cyclic Catastrophism, but provides astronomical detail beyond that of all ancient texts of other cultures, emphasizing the 30-year cyclic nature of close cosmic encounters with the Earth.  2.  It also explains dozens of Egyptian texts which are not understood to this day. These astronomical cycles governed 100 pharaonic dynasties, showing that every generation observed the same events: the ‘first time’, the formation of the northern ocean (the ‘Nun’), the appearance of the ‘risen land’, the ‘great extender’ Osiris, his erotic encounters with Isis, the appearance of the ‘eye of Ra’ and its transfomation into the vengeful Hathor (Mercury) which ‘killed man in the desert’.

Below the Table of Contents and an Introduction are presented in order to convey the true scope of the book, which also includes thirty-one figures, most of which are in color. The soft cover version is available at ( and all versions are available on Amazon. Earlier books Firmament and Chaos search by author name Angiras and for Peleh: Hidden Knowledge by John Ackerman.

Modern scholars have sold short the great knowledge and
intelligence of ancient Egyptian civilization.  All ancient
cultures witnessed and recorded observations of cyclic close
encounters of Venus, Mars and Mercury with the Earth from
3700 to 700 BC in various forms. The Egyptian texts contain the
most accurate and detailed observations of these encounters
because the pharaonic dynasties were intimately linked to
events that took place in the heavens with a periodicity of 30
years. As a result of their artistic and scientific mind set, they
incorporated profound astrophysical information in their texts
and art, which has remained unrecognized for more than two

For reasons which will become obvious in this book, I refer
to the primary planet of Egyptian worship as priori-Mars, implying Mars’ physical makeup prior to the establishment of the solar system observed today, which was only established some 2,300 years ago. Each time this planet became captured in a geostationary orbit of the Earth, it suffered many enormous convulsions which resulted in the ejection of rocks, soil, deluges, flora and fauna which fell to the Earth causing deaths of millions of people worldwide, but its positive effects outweighed the negative ones and it was worshiped by the Egyptians, for some 3,000 years, or one-hundred generations of mankind. The Egyptians gave it
many names – Ra, Horus, Amun Ra, Aten and epithets – the dog
star, Horus on the Horizon, Horus the Child, a number of which
are explained in the following chapters. Ideally, each pharaonic
dynasty was identified with one capture of Mars, which lasted 14.4 years followed by a period of 15.6 years when it was in a ‘recovery’ orbit. Thus each cycle took 30-years. Each dynasty ended when Mars was released from its orbit of the Earth. This was marked by the SED festival. Once this
planet permanently left the vicinity of the Earth (687 BC), the
Egyptian dynasties soon lost their identity and the cultural
memory of the deities and the meanings of the myths, known by the first one hundred generation of Egyptians, were lost and not been recovered until now.

A number of Egyptian texts describe these cosmic events in
terms which rival NASA documentaries of modern times. But
unlike modern times, in which the average person relies on
astronomers for interpretations of the distant cosmos, every
Egyptian witnessed and had personal knowledge of the
terrestrial planets, their size, features on their surfaces and
their effects on the orientation of the Earth. As a result, they
understood, without ambiguity, the hieroglyphic texts describing
these things. Having lost all idea of these heavenly bodies,
modern scholars fail to understand most of the meaning of the
ancient texts, and are thwarted in any such endeavor primarily
because of one completely unfounded assumption, from what is
referred to as the ‘hard sciences’ – that no changes have
occurred in the Earth or the planets since the inception of the
solar system. Based on meteorites and lunar rocks which were
blasted from priori-Mars during these encounters,
astrophysicists believe that all the planets have essentially
remained in their current orbits for 4.6 billion years. This tragic
assumption (uniformitarianism) not only has dictated the limits
of the ‘hard sciences’ but by extension, the humanities as well.
An opportunity now exists for the ancient texts to extend the
limits of geology and astrophysics far beyond those to which
they presently limit themselves.

More information about the Earth and the solar system
can be gleaned from the ancient texts than will ever be
revealed by all space probes, present and future, because
they tell of hundreds of cyclic devastations that will never
be understood by digging a few holes.

This work overturns many modern attempts to identify the
ancient gods among the stars and planets we see today: The
ancient Egyptians never worshiped the Sun; Osiris was not
Orion; the ‘dog star’ was not Sirius; and the term ‘two lands’ did
not refer to Upper and Lower Egypt. The orbiting priori-Mars was
continually observed, day and night for 14.4 years at a time,
stationary high above the eastern horizon, at which the Sphinx,
the Egyptian for which was ‘Horus on the Horizon’, continually
gazed. The reigns, indeed the lives of the pharaohs, were
dictated by these 30-year cycles, as evidenced by the true
purpose of the Sed ‘festivals’. In this book I will explain a
number of the major Egyptian myths, texts, expressions,
hieroglyphs, pictographs and festivals in terms of cosmic events
which occurred close to the Earth. A number of these
interpretations are corroborated by the undeniable
correspondence of space probe images of the surface of Mars
with bas-reliefs, pictographs, statuary and Egyptians texts.

The recognition of the homomorphism of recent solar system
activity and ancient texts makes possible startling revelations
concerning the planets, geology, ancient history and religion.
This new paradigm is known as Cyclic Catastrophism and has
been published in a series of books, Firmament, Chaos and
Peleh: Hidden Knowledge, along with a number of papers
presented at scientific meetings. The initial source for this work
was the Rg Veda, an epic body composed in the form of chants,
later in Sanskrit, which now have been translated into many
languages. The Rg Veda comprises lyrical stanzas forming word
pictures, which are studied by hundreds of scholars around the
world, who, in their journal articles, contest the meanings of the stanzas, forms and even words. But who, also lacking a mental image of the events being
described, have failed to understand the cosmic events which
underlie the entire Rg Veda and Hindu myths. One unfortunate
aspect of the Indic texts is the general uselessness of their art
and statuary – e.g. deities with six or eight arms, or two heads,
which were obviously created from imagination after the Vedic
period of cosmic encounters ended.

Although the Egyptian texts, formed not with words, but with
symbols (hieroglyphs, pictograms, ideograms) have been even
more difficult to translate, their graphic nature can often convey
much more than a single word if one has a cosmic mind-set
with which to work. Also of great value, the symbolic text is
complemented by drawings, bas reliefs and statuary which
contribute greatly to the astronomical context. Thus the
Egyptian texts are an even richer repository of ancient
knowledge, which combined, leave little doubt as to their cosmic
origin. This can be considered metaphysical knowledge, the
term emphasizing that this body of real physical observations,
covering 3,000 years, is of infinitely more value than the
currently accepted astrophysical assumption that nothing
happened during this period. Moreover it reveals a number of
principles never imagined by modern astrophysicists.

In Chapter 1, the one-time initiation of Cyclic Catastrophism is
explained in terms of astronomical events, involving proto-
Venus, but are immediately related to Egyptian deities (Sechat-
Hor). This astronomical view is necessary to begin with, but
becomes reinforced time and time again as more Egyptian icons
are introduced. Chapters 2 and 3 introduce the planet of primary
interest, which I call priori-Mars, the 30-year cyclic close
encounters of which dominated the Egyptian culture for the next
3,000 years. Subsequent chapters explore in detail a number of
ancient Egyptian concepts, hieroglyphs, epithets, pictographs
and festivals, all representing three planets close to the Earth,
their interactions with one another and with the Earth.

Most amazing, is that the entire sequence of astronomical
events were repeated with a 30-year period. This aspect, which
defines Cyclic Catastrophism, is the single most difficult to
accept for modern ‘educated’ people, but there is no doubt as to its veracity. It was because of this cycle that the same sequence of events were witnessed by one hundred generations of mankind, ensuring the consistency of the entire body of ancient myth. As a result, each generation witnessed the approach and capture of the ‘dog star’ (Mars), each witnessed the
‘first time’, the forming of the Nun, the appearance of the ’risen
land’ and the ‘great extender’, saw the ‘eye of Ra’, then
witnessed it coming forth as Hathor, zooming low over the
desert, killing men and returning to the Aten as it left the Earth eight days later.

There are obvious problems in the current understanding of
Egyptian texts, which have been noted, but not solved by
modern scholars in the last two centuries. Cyclic Catastrophism
resolves many of these, as well as many in the ancient texts of
other cultures. For example, in their controversial book, Hamlet’s
Mill, Georgio de Santillana and Hertha vonDechend make a particularly
apt observation concerning the potential knowledge of the ancient
Egyptian knowledge not yet plumbed:

“Take the great endeavor of the hieroglyphic language,
embodied in the imposing Egyptian dictionary of Erman-Grapow.
For our simple word “heaven” it shows thirty-seven terms whose
nuances are left to the translator and used according to his
lights. So the elaborate instructions in the Book of the Dead,
referring to the soul’s celestial voyage, translate into “mystical”
talk, and must be treated as holy mumbo jumbo. … The reader
is invited to imagine for himself what many thousands of such
pseudo-primitive or poetic interpretations must lead to: a
disfigured interpretation of Egyptian intellectual life.” (See
Chapter 7 – The Mysterious Hathor, for more)

A second example, refers to the Djed pillar:

“Although it was widely used as a religious icon throughout much
of the history and geography of Ancient Egypt, it is still not clearly understood what the Djed was originally conceived to represent.”

A completely independent and unbiased  review of Egyptian Astrophysics (Jan 24, 2014) is now available. The following is a clarification of the last point in the review.

I maintain that up until the proto-Venus destructions, (the tohu and bohu in Genesis 1:2) there were not yet any Homo Sapiens Sapiens on Earth.The Elohiym made Adam (mankind), but in order for the new Adam to propagate the new DNA, ‘contact’ with the old DNA of the millions of  sub-human hominids that existed up to that date, had to be eliminated (page 6 & 7). The destruction is recognized archaeologically as Bronze Age I. This is called the ‘silent’ period because no artefacts have been found from this 300 year period during which the Earth was repopulated and maybe instructed by Elohiym, like Thoth. Then followed the BA II when all the great civilizations suddenly appear.
