Ancient Egypt – A Few Basics (gks 10)

Ancient Egypt and the God King Scenario – Cosmic Chaos in Ancient Times

What follows is a short collection of essays (in no particular order) in support of the God King Scenario. This page will be updated regularly as I take ancient Egypt apart, fix it and put it back together again. With the following it is presumed the reader has a basic understanding of the god King Scenario (GKS) and at the very least has read ‘The Crux of the GKS – The Egyptian Dualism.’ I would also like to point out I’m not short of material, on the contrary, time is my only problem.

Skin colour

Ancient Egypt FleshMen in ancient Egypt were traditionally painted red while women were painted yellow, the question is why? Were Egyptian men really red skinned and women yellow in colour? Given the scorching hot Egyptian sun it may be possible to explain away the dark reddish hue ascribed to the men folk but how do we explain yellow women? How on earth did this come about? Surely Egyptian men and women were the same in skin colour, so why not show complete harmony by painting them the same basic colour? This colour distinction is a noticeably odd practice and scholars have no answers as to why the Egyptian’s chose to separate men and women in such a fundamental way. The GKS offers a plausible explanation.

In appearing to move back and forth to earth the two main perpetrators of chaos were Mars and Venus. In the guise of Egypt’s numerous divine god kings and queens (named and renamed many times over — the GKS) these two would set many precedents, this including, even dictating the desired flesh colour of both men and women.

Egyptian Skin RedMars, (the RED god of war) due to internal convulsions predominantly appeared as a red orb. Since it was also observed battling itself from an earth like planet to its now frozen desolate state, it was quite naturally perceived as a fearless male warrior god king battling to maintain ‘divine order’ (ma’at). Egyptian men in veneration, and in aspiring to emulate their astral king(s), accordingly portrayed themselves RED in colour.

Egyptian Female YellowVenus (The goddess of love and beauty), basically a boiling hot (enough to melt lead and zinc) cauldron of molten magma covered in thick dense YELLOW sulphuric clouds predominantly appeared as a yellow, sometimes golden orb. Unlike Mars which battled itself to death, Venus basically cooled down (something it is still doing) hence, from the perspective of earth this serene and passive nature deemed Venus as a divine female queen. The Egyptians again, in veneration, and in aspiring to emulate the named and renamed queen Venus, accordingly portrayed women’s flesh in the image of Venus – Yellow.


On the left is a real true colour photo of the planet Venus, or as I contend, the divine queen Venus. As can be seen it is yellowish in colour. Now, imagine Venus much closer to earth further lit up by the sun as a golden yellow orb. We can now understand why the Egyptians choose to paint women yellow. I would even argue that the white attire worn by the female above (Nofret, top right) is also representative of the whitish yellow clouds enveloping Venus. Further, the spotted gown or dress worn by the female directly above, is also an elusion to how Venus once appeared in the not so distant past. The skies really did dictate everything!

Mars God War

On the right we have a true colour image of the RED planet Mars seen by OSIRIS. This is the warrior god king Mars. Named and renamed numerous times over as it appeared to move back and forth to earth (from the perspective of earth) in the guise of Egypt ‘s divine pharaohs. The Sun (Re) appeared as a red disk, Mars appeared as a red disk, this, the very reason why the divine astral monarchy were considered offspring of the son (Sa Re ‘son of Re) and the very reason why the red disk dominates Egyptian art. In veneration and in aspiring to be like the pinnacle of Egyptian society, the celestial warrior kings, the Egyptians duly portrayed themselves RED.

I hasten to add this colour differentiation wasn’t always the case; depending on a multitude of things (location, light, chaos etc.) both Mars and Venus appeared in a variety of colours (even black, hence the Nubians rulers). This would be especially so of Venus who in the New Kingdom also emulated Mars as a red orb (the red disk seen through Venus’ clouds). A point in case would be Hatshepsut, the queen who adorned traditional male regalia i.e. false beard, pharaohs’ kilt and ruled as a king. I identify Hatshepsut as just another name given to Venus and with Venus/Hatshepsut we have short period (a twenty two year reign) where Venus totally outsized and outranked ‘Pharaoh’ Mars. So much so, the Egyptian’s deemed Venus had to rule as a god king. Hence, we have a female dressing up as a male and proclaiming herself Egypt’s divine pharaoh (the heavens dictate). This manifesting itself, for a start in her name e.g. Hatshepsut, “foremost of the noble women” and epithets along the lines of “like a god she brings peace and prosperity to Egypt” and “just and full of vitality like the sun god Re” (red sun) and of interest here, colour.

Hatshepsut Deir Bahri

If I can draw your attention to the image depicting a statue of Hatshepsut at Deir el-Bahri (left). You will observe Hatshepsut’s flesh was once painted the same deep red normally associated with male pharaohs (&,520&sigr=11kgfc2k3&sigi=11gfmuj3v&sigb=14014dsg7&sigh=1195t4vl4″>this link confirms this). This is indicative of Venus, on the very rare occasion of coming so close to earth, that the molten red glow of the planets surface is observed.

There is, I believe, another reason why the Egyptians painted their women yellow and men red. Here we look to the ordinary folk associating themselves with the countless ‘red’ asteroids and ‘yellow’ comets that dominated the skies only a few thousands years ago. The Egyptians with child-like naivety believed such bodies to be their astral ‘souls’ or ‘kas’ (see Egyptian dualism). Women, quite naturally relating to cometary bodies with their long ‘flowery’ yellow tails of dust and debris trailing in their wake. The men, ‘pairing-up’ with the red blooded lumps of rock, or asteroids.

The point being, a pattern was laid down early on with Mars taking on a distinctly reddish hue while Venus adorned a mainly yellowish (even golden) appearance. In addition, for the Egyptian’s to symbolically represent these basic colours, it stands to reason, both Mars and Venus must have orbited much closer to earth than they do today. And, they were, by all accounts clearly observed day and night courtesy of a diminished Red Sun (i.e. no glare).
