The Crux of the GKS – Egyptian Dualism (gks 1)

Egyptian Pharaohs, Gods and Dualism

The God King Scenario (GKS) deems that the monarchy of ancient Egypt were first and foremost guises of primarily Mars, Venus, Mercury and the Moon as they appeared to repeatedly move back and forth to Earth (from Earth’s POV) in cosmic encounters lasting 3,000 years (Pharaonic Egypt). They were in the second instant represented here on earth numerous times over by people who believed they were ‘at one’ or the earthly manifestation of astral bodies.

Crucial to this extraordinary proposition is the Egyptian belief that when they were born two exact forms of the same person were created, one human and a double or ka as the Egyptians called it.

Egyptian Pharaohs (god kings) guises of planetary bodies

The GKS contends that the Egyptian ka (double) was not an invisible spirit or soul as per the conventional belief but personified planets, asteroids and comets that dominated ancient skies. Further, these celestial kas in the guise of god kings, divine queens and lesser dignitaries are primarily responsible for ancient history as it stands today (& the chronological mess it’s in!). With this in mind, what follows is a short essay discussing how the entire ‘duality concept’ worked and where it is clearly written down in history. It is the intention of the GKS to extract the Egyptian ka, and indeed the whole duel belief system surrounding it, from the mythological world and place in a very real world of chaos. Given mankind’s natural desire to believe in an afterlife I believe all ancient cultures adopted the same practice of associating with real physical heavenly bodies or one’s soul.

Resurrectionists

The Egyptians were resurrectionists; they believed that when they died they would be reborn as a star (akh) in the “Kingdom of Osiris.” They viewed the next world as a continuation of this one, a very real place where they could literally get up and go. Because Egypt was mainly agrarian, they believed the Hearafter was a place where they would spend their time farming. Many tomb paintings and papyri typically depicted the deceased wearing white loincloths or full length white attire; they were shown carrying out activities such as hacking up the Earth, pulling flax, reaping grain and ploughing or reaping the fields.

Typical Egyptian Afterlife Scene

Typical Egyptian afterlife scene

In preparation for the afterlife the Egyptians ensured a variety of Earthly possessions were buried with them. For example, the funerary items buried with the boy king Tutankhamun included a gold gilded wood chariot, gold daggers, sandals, a board game, a gold perfume box and food items such as mummified duck, dried beef, wheat, barley and wine. A total of 3,500 items were recovered and all were considered useful in the next world.

In order to attain a life in the elysian fields the body of the deceased had to be mummified; an elaborate process that took 70 days. The sole reason for mummification was to preserve the body so that the deceased could spend eternity in the next life. The Egyptians believed if you were not physically preserved in this world you would not exist in the next world. You would not be resurrected as a star (akh) or remain for eternity. If the deceased had a limb missing in this life, an artificial one was made and attached to the mummified body to enable the deceased to walk again in the afterlife.

To obtain a life of bliss and become a star/akh in the next world involved a hazardous journey fraught with incredible dangers and demons. To assist the deceased through these dangers, magical spells (The Book of the Dead) accompanied the dead; they were typically written on the coffins of the dead or on papyri and placed inside the coffins.

Where is the next world?

Much of what we know about ancient Egypt comes to us via the Egyptians obsession with the next world, but where is it? Where is this bigger and better Egypt?

Scholars believe it was a fictitious place which existed in the mythological world of the Egyptians; a made-up place created in minds of the Egyptians to explain what happened to them after death. I disagree with this reasoning.

I believe the next world was a ‘mirror image’ world which existed directly above the Earth and to the Egyptians it was a very real place, a divine land they could physically see and point to especially at night. It was a paradise that spanned the expanse of the cosmos and literally canopied the four corners of the Earth. It was a land all Egyptians who after undertaking a journey fraught with dangers (cosmic chaos) aspired to be reborn in, it was the land of space (Kemet = black land or the divine place of the mound of creation).

Of course, there is no land above. We know, after 4,000 years of science, that the stars shine against the backdrop of space and that space reaches out to infinity. The Egyptians, however, did not possess this scientific information and their outlook was childlike. It is this naivety which led the Egyptians (and indeed all ancient cultures) to believe that existing just beyond the blackness of space was a real, physical landmass.

It is actually very easy to see the land above, it requires little effort, merely walking outside on a clear night, adopting a childlike outlook (something I’m good at) and looking up. A common sense notion soon reveals a seemingly flat unmovable earth and a sky that canopies or stretches out over it – heaven appears as a hemispherical dome (or hammered out bowl) covering the Earth. This is exactly how the ancients viewed it only with one major difference, the dome of heaven, space itself was perceived as a rigid cosmic land that literally canopied the fours corners of the Earth. It was held up by four cosmic posts symbolised by the Egyptian Djed Pillar (left). What we have here is two lands and since one was up and the other down the Egyptians called them the ‘two lands’ of Upper and Lower Egypt.

The Two Lands of Upper and Lower Egypt = heaven and earth.

The conventional definition of the Two Lands, Upper and Lower Egypt is that it represents a geological north-south divide i.e. we have an invisible east-west line drawn somewhere near Cairo and the land to the south is called Upper Egypt and to the north (Delta) we have Lower Egypt. In my book I take this apparent set in stone premise apart by asking questions such as; the Nile River flows from south to north and naturally forms two great east and west land masses – how can this be ignored in favour of a invisible line drawn somewhere near Cairo? I further go on to discuss how the ‘Unification of the Two Lands’ – the very foundation upon which Egypt was built (& ancient history) has nothing at all to do with the amalgamation of a invisible north-south divide but was a planetary body in the guise of numerous pharaohs appearing to traverse between the Two Lands of heaven and Earth, thus uniting them.

In support of this I ask some very basic questions such as – why after unification did the symbolism (crowns etc.) of the Two Lands remain – why not one unified Egypt – one set of unified symbols? Why after unification were the kings depicted individually wearing either the white crown of Upper Egypt or the red crown of Lower Egypt? Why not show unity by wearing the double crown (shmty) at all times? Answer; the separate symbolism (and references) remained because even though the pharaonic planets carried out their duty to maintain ‘divine order’ (ma’at) by battling the forces of evil and uniting the Two Lands – Upper and Lower Egypt were always two separate land masses. Of course there is much more to this, for further arguments for and against I refer you to my book and for now we will take the premise that Upper and Lower Egypt, the Two Lands were indeed referring to heaven and earth.
