The sculptured Dendera zodiac (or Denderah zodiac) is a widely known Egyptian bas-relief from the ceiling of the pronaos (or portico) of a chapel dedicated to Osiris in the Hathor temple at Dendera, the relief, which John H. Rogers characterised as “the only complete map that we have of an ancient sky”, has been conjectured to represent the basis on which later astronomy systems were based. It is now on display at the Musée du Louvre, Paris.

….researchers such as Maunder, Crommelin, and Ovenden looked at the risings and settings of the constellations in the poem and calculated that they were first observed around 2600 to 2700 BCE at a latitude of 35 to 40 degrees north (Gurshtein 1993:171).
However, some researchers have noted that certain constellations are much older than 4000 BCE. Gurshtein claims that the first constellations could go back as far as 16,000 BCE (Gurshtein 1997: 47–50), with the largest constellations, akin to the larger US states, being the more recent.
Gingerich proposed that Ursa Major, the Bear, may go back to the Ice Age or earlier, as it was known to both Siberian and North American tribes (Gurshtein 1993: 171). The Soviet philologist Y. A. Karpenko even stated that Ursa Major as a constellation might go back as far as 100,000 BCE (Gurshtein 1993: 171). Edge (1997), Congregado (1994), and Rappengluck (1997) have all made a strong claim that a bull, #17, with six dots above it, painted on a southern wall in an Upper Paleololithic cave in Lascaux represents the constellations Taurus and the Pleiades (Krupp 2000: 50). Marshak also presented evidence that Paleololithic cave dwellers were more sophisticated stargazers than previously thought, for he found that they used bone markings as a lunar calendar (Marshak 1972).

So was Pope John Paul II a Freemason in drag, or just somebody who knows how to keep a secret?
What does his burial suggest?
‘M’ Marian Cross and the Coat of arms of Pope John Paul II, display the Papal tiara and crossed keys of the pontifical office.
“Science progresses funeral by funeral.”
The Marian Cross was part of Pope John Paul’s Coat of Arms.
(coincidentally I have a sister named Marion)
The Marian Cross is an informal name applied to a Roman Catholiccross design. It consists of a traditional Latin cross with the crossbar extended on the right, and a letter “M” (for the Virgin Mary) in the lower right quadrant.
A recently publicized use of the Marian Cross was on the personal coat of arms of Pope John Paul II, displayed prominently on his casket at his funeral, although it may have been in use before this. A similar design had appeared over a century earlier on the Miraculous Medal due to a Marian apparition to Saint Catherine Labouré in 1830, where the M represents the Virgin Mary standing at the foot of the cross during the Crucifixion of Jesus.
As the Vatican newspaper, L’Osservatore Romano stated in 1978:
“The coat of arms for Pope John Paul II is intended to be a homage to the central mystery of Christianity, that of Redemption. It mainly represents a cross, whose form however does not correspond to any of the usual heraldry models. The reason for the unusual shift of the vertical part of the cross is striking, if one considers the second object included in the Coat of Arms: the large and majestic capital M, which recalls the presence of the Madonna under the Cross and Her exceptional participation in Redemption. The Pontiff’s intense devotion to the Holy Virgin is manifested in this manner.” 
But take a look what happens if we reflect for a moment what we can do with the Marian Cross … rotate the Cross 180 degrees.
AND WE HAVE A MATCH FOR THE IMAGES and NARRATIVE that follows.
Please note how the x-axis and y-axis in both images ‘line up’
#1 is FOMALHAUT in Aquarius
#2 is ALDEBARAN in Taurus
#3 is REGULUS in Leo
#4 is ANTARES in Scorpio
First image above on the left are those 4 ROYAL STARS (1-4) sitting on the ecliptic.
The green ellipse is the ecliptic.
Ignore the red arrow, the black circle and the number 5 for now.
The second image above shows that these same 4 ROYAL STARS (1-4) shares a similar geometry to the Golden Spiral, a.k.a. Fibonacci sequence, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, …
1 1 2 3 5 8
Now let us match up the 4 Royal Stars, their zodiacal positions to their starry associations and to Card X of the TAROT.
11 >> 1 is FOMALHAUT in Aquarius
2 >> 2 is ALDEBARAN in Taurus
5 >> 3 is REGULUS in Leo
8 >> 4 is ANTARES in Scorpio
And those 4 ROYAL STARS that are on CARD X and their numbers 11258 are used also in the formula for both phi and Phi.
(think about it)
And Phi/phi suggests we should investigate the billions served daily under the golden arches, i.e. the golden ratio, the golden triangle, the golden rectangle, the golden spiral and the golden mean too of course, do you know what I mean?
Apparently a relationship is inferred between these 4 Pillars holding up the Heavens demarcating the 4 cardinal directions, and appears to be golden in shape?
Are you starting to realize how much information is embedded on CARD X?
Shall we go to Egypt now and see how it matches up with the Dendera Zodiac?
Don’t Worry Be Hapi!
Considering the strong possibility that the origin of our alphabet is correlated with the constellations of the zodiac (see “On the Origins of the Alphabet,” Sino-Platonic Papers 196, December 2009), it is interesting that I first learned the alphabet by having to raise my head and look up. That is, I had to turn around in my chair in kindergarten and look up to a spot just beneath the ceiling on the back wall of the classroom. For there on a wide strip of white paper that ran from one side of the room to the other was written the upper and lower case letters of the alphabet. It was there that I first saw the letter “A” and then “B,” etc., in their proper sequence and upper/lower case forms. I now find it quite fascinating that I first learned the alphabet in the same manner that the inventors of the alphabet in Egypt almost 4000 years ago had originally intended — by looking up and reading what was above me.
S.A. Mackey and the Dendera zodiacs
S.A. Mackey was a source frequently cited by H.P. Blavatsky, primarilly in relation to his theory pertaining to the zodiacs of the Egyptian temple of Dendera, and his interpretation of them. Mackey was of the opinion that, during the millennia through which equinoctial precession occurs, the path traced by the celestial north pole of the Earth is not a closed circle, as is commonly held, but aspiral . What this means, is that Mackey held that the inclination of the Earth’s axis constantly shifted in a mostly regular pace, changing inclination by about 4 degrees in the duration of time encompassing one precessional cycle (or “Great Year”, considered to very roughly constitute a period of 25000-26000 years). This gradual change of axial inclination was assigned by him as the cause of periodic and very intense climatic changes that took place on the planet’s surface, and thus drastically affected the modes of life upon it. Mackey considered that mythology was essentially a descriptive medium meant for communicating important occurrences of a celestial, astronomical and geological nature, by converting the observed phenomena into “sublime incomprehensibilities”, as he himself described it. He thus considered mythology, and even ancient architecture, sculpture and paintings to essentially convey what he formulated as his theory of the planets’ movements over the course of millions of years. As he writes in the beginning of his “A new theory of the earth and of planetary motion”:
In this article, we are going to review some of the assertions and related interpretations of S.A. Mackey regarding the Dendera zodiacs, as his material on this subject is quoted several times in H.P. Blavatsky’s The Secret Doctrine and elsewhere.

I love coincidences especially dates or ideas that merge with the numbers 1~3~7
Note the solar eclipse documented occurred on 7/3/51 BC.
Sylvie Cauville of the Centre for Computer-aided Egyptological Research at Utrecht University and Éric Aubourg dated it to 50 BC through an examination of the configuration it shows of the five planets known to the Egyptians, a configuration that occurs once every thousand years, and the identification of two eclipses.
The solar eclipse indicates the date of March 7, 51 BC: it is represented by a circle containing the goddess Isis holding a baboon (the god Thoth) by the tail.
On an inner circle, one finds constellations, showing the signs of the zodiac. Some of these are represented in the same Greco-Roman iconographic forms as their familiar counterparts (e.g. the Ram, Taurus, Scorpio, and Capricorn, albeit most in odd orientations in comparison to the conventions of ancient Greece and later Arabic-Western developments), whilst others are shown in a more Egyptian form:
Aquarius is represented as the Nile flood god Hapy positioned above the ‘Circle of 8’
Rogers noted the similarities of unfamiliar iconology with the three surviving tablets of a “Seleucid zodiac” and both relating to kudurru, “boundary-stone” representations: in short, Rogers sees the Dendera zodiac as “a complete copy of the Mesopotamian zodiac”
Please note which constellations are positioned in the CORNERS.
Written in GREEN >>> in the upper left corner?
It is the 4 Royal Stars or the 4 Evangelists, represented by the zodiac signs Scorpius, Leo, Taurus and Aquarius.
It is important to know that Aquarius was also known as Amphora.
The Dendera zodiac image also brings to mind two possible formula.
36 + circle of 8 = 44
And 44 is coincidental to the base of the Great Pyramid, each side being 440 cubits.
36 + 1 (circle) = 37
And the circle of 8 is a nice fit to both the 8 family members on the 137 meter Ark and the 8 family members in the orient that form the foundation of the I-Ching.

The controversy around the zodiac, called the “Dendera Affair”, involved people of the likes of Joseph Fourier (who estimated that the age was 2500 BC), Thomas Young, Jean-François Champollion, and Jean-Baptiste Biot. Johann Karl Burckhardt and Jean-Baptiste Coraboeuf held, after analysis of the zodiac, that the ancient Egyptians understood the precession of the equinoxes.
So the Egyptians understood Precession by at least 2500 BCE that appears to be clear.
But our self-serving HIS-story embraced by the western historians credited Hipparchus around 200 BC with Precession of the Equinoxes.
I think it is all bunk. Carl Jung also noticed, commented, and challenged the status quo.
Precession is something golden in its origin and its architecture is golden as are its movements…

Coral Castle T-square Plough – compare to the dotted lines in the Golden Rectangle
Is there a connection between all of the above and Ed Leedskalnin’s inspiration called the Coral Castle, built as a monument to sweet sixteen?
Can we match up Ed’s reference to sweet 16 to the 16 winds we find surrounding the obELIsk in St. Peter’s Square-Ellipse?
When people asked Ed how he had moved all of the stone by himself, he refused to give up his method and would only reply to whomever was asking with the same statement of;
“I understand the laws of weight and leverage and I know the secrets of the people who built the pyramids (being those at the site at Giza in Egypt)”.
IMHO all of the above defaults to the idea of a PLOUGH!
Recently several weblogs have pointed to a new working paper on the role of plough-based agriculture vs. hoe-based agriculture in shaping cultural expectations about male and female labor force participation specifically, and the differentiation of gender roles more generally. My first reaction was: “doesn’t everyone know this already?”
No I did not know that in fact!
The PLOUGH vs. the HOE?
Is that why a woman who likes to receive the SEED whilst being ploughed is often called a ‘HO’?
Probably yes, the collective unconscious has a sick twisted SS SenSe of humor.
The Big Dipper, also known as the Plough or the Saptarishi (after the seven rishis), is an asterism of seven stars that has been recognized as a distinct grouping in many cultures from time immemorial. The component stars are the seven brightest of the formalconstellationUrsa Major. The North Star (Polaris), the current northernpole star on Earth, can be located by imagining a line from Merak (β) to Dubhe (α) and then extending it. Polaris is part of the “Little Dipper“, Ursa Minor.What is the sign for the Big Dipper in Egyptian astronomy/zodiac?
And in on the Dendera Zodiac the symbol used to represent Ursa Major (the Big Dipper) is in fact the leg of the bull.
The constellation of Ursa Major became a major metaphor in the religious and agricultural lives of both Predynastic and Dynastic Egyptians. Evidence from astronomy, the Pyramid Texts, and tomb and coffin imagery, plus the ethnographic parallels offered by contemporary Sudanese tribal cultures demonstrate the complex and multi-layered symbolic meanings that Ursa Major inspired for both priestly and farming classes.
It was related to the concept of the ka, the Opening of the Mouth ceremony, and the Nile inundation, and thus was a potent symbol of rejuvenation, perhaps from as early as the beginning of the Predynastic, ca. 4000 B.C.E. This article is a speculative exploration of the multiple meanings implied by the shape of Ursa Major, drawing on Egyptian astronomy, ethnography from the Sudan, and the agricultural cycle of ancient Egypt.
AND the best part is that the ROTAS/SATOR Square revolves around the translation of the word AREPO.
Some folks claim to link the word Arepo to the the Celtic word for PLOUGH.

CONVEX vs CONCAVE
And what is the connection to the tortoise and the idea of a surface being CONVEX?
Note that the other side of the coin appears to be CONCAVE.
In India we find in the cosmology of the Jain Buddhists a similar reference to the ideas CONVEX, CONCAVE, and FLAT.
So does the currency of early civilizations depict a fluctuating, oscillating cosmic currency that also goes up and down in cycles?
And is it surprising thousands of years later we are still struggling to define the geometry of the universe in the same terms?
The only evolution of thought is that CONVEX and CONCAVE represent two sides of the same coin, however modern physics has introduced the ‘saddle’ shape.
But what is amazing is that 21st century physics is now suggesting that a
FLAT geometry for the universe is …

In Jainism, the swastika symbol is the only holy symbol. Jainism does not use the Hindu om symbol at all and thus gives even more prominence to the swastika than Hinduism.
The swastika is the symbol of the seventh Jina (Saint), the Tirthankara Suparsva. It is considered to be one of the 24 auspicious marks and the emblem of the seventh arhat of the present age. All Jain temples and holy books must contain the swastika and ceromonies typically begin and end with creating a swastika mark several times with rice around the altar.
I have concluded that the SWASTIKA is the TRUE BLUE GOOD LUCK AVATAR to come, it arrived yesterday, btw.
In fact the swastika since 10,000 BCE has provided humanity with some mind blowing applications, including the PLOUGH!
Here is another application for the TRUTH. It is the hidden hand behind the fiction.
TRUTH is stranger than fiction because ALL fiction has as its source the TRUTH.
