This ancient artifact was buried beneath the Temple of Knossos (Gnosis) where archeologists discovered an ancient alabaster engraved with Egyptian Pharaoh Khian’s upon it in a deposit assigned by Arthur Evans to Middle Minoan III A.9. The remarkable parallels between the Cretan seal designs and the Egyptian scarab-designs were first pointed out by Evans.
Seuserenre Khyan (Khian, Khayan or Khan) was said to be the First king of all Hyksos during the Fifteenth dynasty of Egypt. His birthdate is estimated between 1725BCE and 1605BCE.
It is said that the supremacy of Egyptian power in the Mediterranean had started right around the reign of Khian. An interesting note is that the supremacy of Crete’s power had started approximately the same time period and lasted for 2,000 years later until Rome and the Caesars conquered Greco-Roman Egypt.
Khian is Manetho’s Yannas. His cousin Tubal ruled Spain. His alternate names as “Khayan, Khian, Apachnan, Yannas, Jannis, Iannes, Joannis , Khiyaran, and Khajran.”
Khyan had carried the titles of an Egyptian king, but also the title ruler of the foreign land (heqa-khaset) which was a typical designation of the Hyksos rulers.
He was in control of Thebes just like one of his predecessors and descendants, Rekhmire.
Khyan symbol was a lion. His throne name, Seuserenra, has been found on a grey granite lion which had been built into the wall of a house in Baghdad.
In researching the meaning and etymology of words for the last 10 years, I have come to the conclusion that many researchers of modernity have systematically butchered the original meanings out of existence. It has got so bad that I have found that it is much better to just to do your own research well before our modern Babylonian era.
Take for example the people who the Egyptians called the ‘Keftiu.’
As I have explained in numerous articles, the Keftiu is just another name for the Cretans from the island in the sea called Crete which was considered the soul of the world and most powerful island for thousands of years.
If you try to research modern interpretations of the meaning and etymology of Keftiu, you will find some researchers with ludicrous meanings such as, “Those beyond or the men from the Back of Beyond; back behind; hinderland, the nail of the earth and even pillar.”
But the facts are the compound word Keftiu is derived from the words Kef or Keph and tiu or tu.
Kef is from the Greek words “kepha, kephas and or kephalé,” which mean “the head,” but also denote esoterically in religion as, “Rock, Ruler, Lord or a Cornerstone (Masonic), uniting two walls.”
The definition of Tiu we can find is borrowed from the Ancient Greek word – ταῦ (taû) which comes from the 22nd letter of the Phoenician abjad, called taw AKA ? (t) which is the Omega in the 22 letters of the Hebrew alphabet.
The taw, X, and t, all signify the mathematical formula the left and right brain bullseye in the 22 bones of the skull that we humans need to create AKA to do which must first happen in the Kef (Kepha) AKA the head.
This is why in Middle English tawen, from Old English tawian (“to do, make”), from Proto-Germanic *tawjaną (“to make, prepare”) or the Gothic ?????? (taujan, “to make, prepare”).
After all, the Ancient Egyptians had portrayed the Keftiu has the creators and makers of all sorts of crafts, buildings, and statues. Today, science has verified that Crete and the Cretans were essentially the creators of Western civilization in which they would have had to use their heads to do – AKA Kef Tiu.
The connections and relations between the Ancient Egyptians and Cretans have been well documented by the historians of yesteryear. I would like to add that I believe the Egyptians were also racially and politically connected to the Cretans through the Thebans.
As I have written before, Crete was called Keftiu and Peoples of the Sea in the Ancient Egyptian texts who were often represented by the Egyptians of the XVIIIth Dynasty. The Greeks in the Old Testament called Crete by the name – Kaftor, or Caphtor. The Latins called it Cappadocia and the Arabs called the island Kerith. This same island has also been known by various names over the course of history like Arcadia, Candia, Minoa, Phoenicia, and Phrygia etc.
Today, in the tomb of Rekhmire at Thebes, we can find proof of these Cretan (Keftiu) connections that are preserved even to this day and most great researchers concur that Keftiu to be synonymous with Crete.
Evidence of their relations can be found in the famous tomb of the Egyptian Vizier Rekhmire at Thebes where we find the Cretans wearing different color kilts bringing tribute to their Egyptian masters. Here is Detail of Keftiu (Cretans) from TT100, Tomb of Rekhmire. (Original photo via Osirisnet)
And here is another image of the Keftiu from TT100, Tomb of Rekhmire. (Original photo via Osirisnet)
Throughout the tomb of Rekhmire, there are various paintings of fine dark red-skinned Cretan men with both dark brown and blonde hair wearing their symbolic kilts of different colors signifying their various ranks. Some of the men also all wear the upturned sandals with straps, indicative of the Israelites along with colorful leggings.
You will also find some of their heads shaven and others with a full head of hair with a carefully designed curl flowing down to their waists which also help signify their rank. The High Priests wore their hair long and the lower ranks of scribes, musicians, masons, and artificers wore their hair short.
Today we see a similar tradition in Christianity with the Orthodox Priests of the East wearing their hair long and the Roman Catholic of the West wear their hair short.
In these images, we see the Cretans bringing the various products of their fine crafts mainly vessels of gold and silver, jugs, drinking cups, amphorae, and rhytons. They also provide the products they have obtained by trade such as ingots and rings of silver, daggers, chains and pieces of lapis lazuli.
The Tribute is piled up at the feet of the scribes who would make records for the Pharaoh and royal court.
In the text titles the “Instructions to the Vizier,” we discover that the Egyptian royal court at Thebes had relations with the Island of Crete (Keiftu) whom they also governed and taxed.
The text notes that the Prince of Punt is coming with his tribute bringing it to the Pharaoh. Coming after the Tribute of Punt we find the “Princes of Crete and the islands of the Mediterranean.”
The chiefs from Crete are “bent and bowing before the might of his majesty.”
The accompanying text reads, “Coming in peace by the Great of Crete, islands that are in the middle of the sea, bending, bowing of the head, because of the power of His Majesty, the King of Lower Egypt, Menkheperre, given life forever, on learning of his strength in all foreign countries, their tribute being on their backs, in order that they may be given the breath of life, desiring to be faithful (literally: to be upon the water) to His Majesty, to ensure that his power protects them. It is the confidant of the King, Mayor of the City, Vizier Rekhmire, who receives all the tribute of all foreign countries, which are brought due to the power of His Majesty.”
His image is completely erased. Facing left, he witnessed the tribute ceremony. The accompanying text states;
“Receiving the attendants of the Southern regions along those of Punt, the Retenu (Syria-Palestine) attendants, the Cretan attendants, along with the loot from all foreign countries foreign, which has been sent through power of His Majesty, the King of Upper and Lower Egypt (Menkheperre) | living forever, by the Prince, Governor, Great among Greats, Dignitary among Friends, Director of the chief Works, efficient confidant of the sovereign, the one causing he who is in the Palace to praise him and to place him at the head of (his) friends, and as top chief of the entire country, (because) he recognized (him) as one who achieved useful things. The example is for him; his venerable status is before him, the Mayor of the City, the Vizier Rekhmire”.
Rekhmire is followed by six officials (called ‘friends’ or ‘companion’s) each carrying in his left hand a plant branch. Above them is the text:
“Friends of the Palace – life, health, strength – coming before the Vizier, reciting prayers. They recite a joyous chant:
The sovereign, the one whose monuments are perfect.
Menkheperre Every office is upheld, regions and cities are established, laws and regulations are enduring for their effects.
The children of Dignitaries are in the office of their fathers May he continue (literally again)… to do the same for millions of years. He is durable and stable on the throne of Horus. May he come to repeat the Sed-festival.
May he guide the living for eternity”.
This text shows that they clear the way for the Vizier who leaves the throne room after the King’s speech. Behind them appears to be a person holding a stick who must have been a guard which has almost completely disappeared.
33rd Degree Scottish Rite Freemasonic philosopher, Albert Pike had written about the meaning of the square base of the Great Egyptian Pyramid, “The Gnostics writes claimed that the whole edifice of their science rested on a square whose angles were: Σιγη, Silence; Βυθος, Profundity; Νους, Intelligence; and Αληθεια Truth.” (See Morals and Dogma)

The word Dead or Ded, means “firm,” “established.” This quality or condition was greatly desired by the ancient Egyptians for their dead. After death the heart was said to lead an independent existence, journeying alone through the Underworld (Duat) until it met the deceased in the Hall of Judgment presided over by the great God of the dead and King of the Underworld, Osiris.
Divine pardon at judgement in the underworld was always a central focus of the Ancient Egyptian religion and rituals. (more…)
The Belgian author best known for his Orion Correlation Theory, Robert Bauval has been unrelenting in his accusations against the former Egyptian Ministry of Antiquities, Dr. Zahi Hawass. For the past year, Bauval has detailed a strong case against Hawass for his alleged involvement in the theft of the Khufu Cartouche.
Hawass has been striking back in the media against Bauval by accusing who he calls ‘the Belgian adventurer’ (Bauval), of ‘paying the Germans’ to steal the Khufu Cartouche in order to prove that the pyramids were built by foreigners 15,000 years ago. He also blames the ‘foreigners’ for the corruption and all the problems that were caused to antiquities. (more…)
In ancient Egypt, the serpent Apep (Apophis) was known as the evil god who lived in the underworld, and was the most wicked enemy of Ra. Apep was personified with the darkness of the darkest hour of the night, against which the God of light Ra must not only battle, but fight successfully before he could rise in the east in the morning.
Ra was worshipped as a savior, and Apep worshipped against as the destroyer. Ra was the bringer of light and order, and upholder of Ma’at. Apep was the bringer of darkness, and Lord of Chaos. Apep was often depicted as a giant snake/serpent, and was sometimes called the Serpent from the Nile and Evil Lizard. Some accounts even said that his body stretched 16 yards in length and had a head made of flint. (more…)
Our earth has seen what some would call “end of the world events” many times in its history. Cataclysmic natural disasters, and horrific flesh eating plagues have wreaked havoc on human kind such as the one described in this story. They have happened before, and may happen again in the future with devastating diseases like the modern day Ebola virus.
Recently, a group of Italian archaeologists discovered some telling evidence of an ancient plague at a funerary complex in Luxor, Egypt on the site of the ancient city of Thebes. LiveScience reported the human remains that archaeologists found at the site were covered with a thick layer of lime, used historically as a disinfectant. The MAIL researchers also found three kilns where the lime was produced, and more human remains scattered over an area that appears to have been a giant bonfire, in which many of the plague victims appear to have been incinerated.
This lime they found covering the bodies and in these kilns is a very telling clue to the science and medical practices used by the ancient Egyptians, which I will explain a bit more below. But first let me please give you some background on this ancient Ebola type plague. (more…)
Mummification is otherwise known as the preserving process that cultures such as the Ancient Egyptians had practiced on dead bodies in order to carry them into the next life. It has been thought to have originated approximately 4,600 years ago or in the year 2,600 B.C. Sources such as the Smithsonian, have maintained that the earliest mummies from prehistoric times were probably accidental and formed naturally from the hot and dry environment of the desert.
However, a recent article from Live Science pointed out an analysis from the science journal “Plos One” that uncovered new evidence which shows mummification was intentionally being practiced by humans using chemical means over a thousands years before the Fourth and Fifth Dynasties, between the years 4500 B.C. and 3100 B.C..
