Egyptian encrypted storymath

Totally random thought here and I just feel like it would expand my imagination if I threw it out there =p.

Wouldn't it be wild if ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs were both a form of spoken math and a method of storytelling all in one, and all we're interpreting is the story...not the math.

    Oct 10 2012: This is not such a weird idea.

    Some years ago, after studying Egyptian mythology and the Knights Templar (at the same time), out of the blue, I was STRUCK with a sudden realization. The first chapter of Genesis was written in the LANGUAGE of geometry. It was never intended to be understood verbally.

    Using a compass and a straight edge, I began drawing what the words told me to draw. I ended up learning abut the origins of creation, quantum mechanics as it relates to entanglement, the big bang, time and anti-time (matter, anti-matter), bosuns and fermions, relativity, the formation of earth, the role of humans in all of this, and much more.

    Furthermore, I also realized (when I got to the 6th day and was told to take dominion over my creation), I discovered that I had drawn the schematic for the Great Pyramid of Giza. All of the chambers, halls, and tunnels were perfectly placed within my rendering, and I understood that the stories I've heard surmising about the King's chamber and the Queen's chamber were clearly misunderstood.

    I concluded that no stone or iron age human could have created a rendering such as the 4th day, when the sun and moon surrounded a planet against a field of stars. And no such human could have understood that there was a concept such as anti-time.

    I recently read an article that talked about a computer program that was able to put biblical verses into the proper chapters of the bible, and determine whether they were written by a priestly class or not. The software was able to separate the verses into the appropriate chapters with 100% accuracy. The first chapter of genesis stood alone, and it was NOT written by a priest or any other author in the Bible.

      Oct 10 2012: So where would be a good place to start learning what we do know about ancient Egyptian Hieroglyphics? I also love how hieroglyphics sounds a lot like Holographics... just sayin. It would be amazing if we could plug these hieroglyphics into a computer and come out with a holographic rendering of their history and everything they knew about spirituality and mathematics in the form of a musical creation story. I would also love to see what you did with genesis. You should make a video. It sounds fascinating.

    Oct 10 2012: or maybe they are a song we don't know how to sing, that could be translated into mathematics. Would that be something. And no I am not high. These are actually the things I think about.

      Oct 10 2012: Judaism, whose roots stretch into ancient Egypt do not speak the words of Torah. They are chanted. So there might be something to this as well. But I've never had any thoughts about the matter. I should though, because music is mathematical at its essence.

      Jeremy, you are awakening. There is nothing wrong with you. No need to keep apologizing for how you think. You are not alone. There are many of us. We don't all have the same interests, and we do not all use the same metaphors, but we are all on a path to self-awareness. When you allow yourself to be who you are, and stop apologizing for your uniqueness (thus embracing it), how exciting life will be. There is great joy in casting off your sheepledom. It's how you find freedom and how you reconnect with your power. (And you ARE a being of great power)

      Welcome to the new world.

        Oct 10 2012: I am also used to presenting these thoughts on facebook and most times I get messages like "don't be silly" or "wow, you're crazy" lol. That's why I apologize in advance =p. What really set me off on this idea was the "Symphony of Science" and how it seems easier to retain information when in the form of music. The words of a song don't always seem the same when spoken directly as oppose to sung. Since music is also a form of math it just seems like these stories could also be a mathematical equation.

        Oct 11 2012: Hi TL

        Chanting is a form of oral history. If you look at most native peoples that don't use written communication you will find they chant to each other, it also helps to take you into another place, a sort of centering though i don't know why the old hebrews chanted, one can only guess unless it was to setup the mind for possible interaction with Yahweh.
