Thoth Hermes Trismegistus and his Ancient School of Mysteries

(Read the article on one page)

As for Thoth? He has remained revered by philosophers, occultists, alchemists and healers through the ages, though many of the texts accredited to him were lost in the Great Fire of the Library of Alexandria. Who know how different history might have been had the knowledge contained in that library not been lost?

These studies also translate on to the evolution of the Soul. It is not all about creation; the rise and fall man or physical civilisations and all that.

Thoth is way more involved with Earth’s history than this article gives credit to. I think there is a huge reason why we have been denied Thoth’s full story for so long. Something also tells me that his books were a tartget in the Great Fire.

Peace and Love,

WHY, Arttau? Why are we meant to forget and then struggle through darkness to regain knowledge? I read that humanity has been through this over and over (previous civilizations having left evidence of their existence so we would find clues) and supposedly our history cycles over and over again with our attaining a high degree of knowledge, only to be reset to the beginning again. This makes no sense.

We never seem to get anywhere. Our propensity for war is as vicious and insane as ever. Our tolerance for the suffering of others is unfathomable, even as we achieve incredible technology.

I do not understand the notion that we are fragments of some creator who needs to experience the universe that it created in the first place so we can be reunited with that creator again. This is like some crazy kind of closed loop that makes no sense.

So many religions/schools of thought insist that they have The Truth--that it has been channeled from this or that High Holy Master of--and they still contradict. How can so many purveyors of Truth contradict?

I have NO idea what is going on. I was raised Southern Baptist. I left all that craziness and discovered the 'New Age Movement.' I have studied and practiced Buddhism. So I've tried really hard in this life to figure it out. It all comes back to: This Makes No Sense.

This is why I lean towards the beliefs of the Gnostics. To make a long story short, Gnostics believed we are trapped in the clockwork universe of the Demiurge, a powerful spiritual being who envied the real creator's accomplishment of creation and sought to mimic it, thus coming up with a sort of half-baked, vastly inferior version of the original creation. He captured some other spirits and shattered them, then used the shards to populate his crappy universe, trapping them in an endless loop of rebirth and wiping their memories each time. The Gnostics focused on awakening to the spirit self to achieve salvation, which was to escape the trap of the Demiurge and return to the true Creation.

Human Origins

Noah's Sacrifice - watercolor circa 1896–1902 by James Tissot
The imperfect state of archaeological researches in the Near East impedes any definite identification of the original race or races that created the earliest civilizations of Mesopotamia and Egypt. According to Gordon Childe, however, the predominant racial element in the earliest graves in the region from Elam to the Danube is the ‘Mediterranean’.

The ancient and mysterious Sphinx, Giza, Egypt.
In 1995, NBC televised a prime-time documentary hosted by actor Charlton Heston and directed by Bill Cote, called Mystery of the Sphinx. The program centered on the research and writings of John Anthony West, a (non-academic) Egyptologist, who, along with Dr. Robert Schoch, a professor of Geology at Boston University, made an astounding discovery on the Great Sphinx of Giza in Egypt.

Our Mission

At Ancient Origins, we believe that one of the most important fields of knowledge we can pursue as human beings is our beginnings. And while some people may seem content with the story as it stands, our view is that there exists countless mysteries, scientific anomalies and surprising artifacts that have yet to be discovered and explained.

The goal of Ancient Origins is to highlight recent archaeological discoveries, peer-reviewed academic research and evidence, as well as offering alternative viewpoints and explanations of science, archaeology, mythology, religion and history around the globe.

We’re the only Pop Archaeology site combining scientific research with out-of-the-box perspectives.

By bringing together top experts and authors, this archaeology website explores lost civilizations, examines sacred writings, tours ancient places, investigates ancient discoveries and questions mysterious happenings. Our open community is dedicated to digging into the origins of our species on planet earth, and question wherever the discoveries might take us. We seek to retell the story of our beginnings.
