The Elusive Egyptian Hall of Records and Hopi Lessons of Death and Rebirth

The Elusive Egyptian Hall of Records and Hopi Lessons of Death and Rebirth

The constellation of Orion is not wearing a belt. Instead, I think the middle star represents his navel.  Medical scientists are just now finding out all the powers of the navel, the umbilical cord, the path of life, death, and re-birth, from mother to child.

The Dance

The Hopi wait each year for the constellation of Orion to appear through their Kiva roof opening, and for the light from his constellation to shine down. The clan leader who requested the traditional dance will call out into the opening, “come on down,” inviting Orion down to earth to join in the ceremony and then, and only then, will the dances begin. They call his navel star Hotomkan, a very close pronunciation to the name Tutankhamun of Egypt. 

Many Native American Tribes live where they believe their guardian told them to live after they emerged through the navel of the earth into this time period; the Zuni crossed a large ocean in search of their balanced center of the world, the Acoma emerged into the light of the sun, and the Chumash arrived at Point Conception, to name a few. 

In Japan at the city of Kyoto, there is a six-sided stone called, Eso Ishi, or navel stone; in India the Rig-Veda, in Greece the Omphalos ( umbilicus in Latin) Stone, and many other places which are said to be the earth’s center; Jerusalem, the Temple of Ammon at Thebes, Mount Gerizim on the West Bank, and Cuzco (navel), the Inca capital of Peru in the Andes mountains.

The earliest depiction of an Omphalos (navel) stone at the pyramid complex in Egypt, is seen in a mural on the walls of the Seti I pyramid. 

Hopi Creation Story

The Hopi believe that four races of mankind; the black, the yellow, the red, and the white, were all created equal; at the same time, the same place, and then distributed around the earth with their specific guardian to start our present civilizations. This is said to be the fourth time the Creator has had to come back to earth and re-start civilization by Hopi count. If the Hopi are correct, the location where this event took place should still be here today.

In Egypt, at the pyramid complex, there are depictions of the ‘four races of man’ at a location called the Book of Gates.  There are statues, murals, and mummies of all four races of man, and Egyptologist have a hard time explaining temples built for different colored pharaohs or guardians.

When I look at the foundations of the temples at the pyramid complex in Egypt, I see Hopi hieroglyphics or petroglyphs that symbolize the people mentioned in in their Creation Story. This information might give us a clue as to the location of the Hall of Records and, if correct, prove the Hopi Creation Story. 

The Temples of Egypt

The Valley Temple in Egypt is a male figure that has no eyes to see, no legs to travel, and can only count to three on his left hand. This figure represents death or the death of the third world.  His right hand gives us the direction of earth’s rotation at the present time.

His ears are open to the east to receive the people chosen to move on to the fourth world. The causeway that runs from his right hand lines up with the direction of the winter solstice in Egypt.

Hey. I think what P. Axe meant was that, according to Hesiod, there were five generations (or ages) of men in Greek mythology, starting with the golden, then the silver, bronze, heroic and finally iron (our own).  I find that the most commly shared element of most mythologies concerning the succession of human generations or ages is that there often is a flood evnt that immediately precedes our own. A possible topic of inquiry, and connection between the Hopi and Greek myths, could be that the Hopi believe we are the fourth generation and, we could posit, the Greek myth kinds of supports this, in that they believed that we are the fifth, but the fourth is only meant to have ended some 3500 years ago. This is because the men who inhabited Troy and Mycenaean Greece were meant to have been of the fourth generation, which would mean they there might be a overlap between the Hopi fourth, and the Greek fourth-fifth generations. It would need to be established how far back the fourth generation is meant to have gone according to Hopi myth (and Greek) and (I don’t know of this, but hopfully you do T. O. Mills) whether the Hopi believe a flood occurred before the fourth generation.

Thanks, Timondt. Those are some interesting connections! I should get back to reading the Greek myths. So far I've tried to compare the Theosophical and Hindu chronologies with the known geological history, but there seem to be major discrepancies.

Good Morning Timondt, The fourth generation or time started before the great flood.  The Hopi believe that the Creator rolled up the chosen few in hollow reeds, or something very similar to hollow reeds, and placed them in the ocean with food and water to survive.   They floated many days and then landed on an island and built wooden rafts for their long journey traveling east over a large ocean while the rest of the world was under water.  This was the start of the fourth world.  They were protected and guided by their Guardian Masaw who brought them to the west side of this continent.

 

In my mind the water had to come from somewhere.  The last time the polar ice caps melted was 11,000 to 12,000 years ago according to the scientist.  The oldest settlement on the west side of this continent is called Monte Verde, Chile and it dates to 12,500 years ago and I think that is where they landed.  There is an ancient sea port on the Red Sea called Massawa, and I think that is where they started the journey.  

 

I do not know very much about Greek mythology but the Hopi Creation story answers many questions for me.  How did the four different races come about?  How did they all find different territories, languages, customs, in the beginning?   Why there are pyramids and who built them.    all the best.   tom

This is a fascinating theory! Thank you for posting this. The older I get the more I find myself looking at old myths for the grain of truth my mother said to look for. Rather, it should be to interpret it in what we can understand today.

Hello Judy and thank you for taking the time to read it.   I was 21 when I first went to live with the Hopi back in 1970.  The grains of truth came to me in 1998.  I think your mother was right on.  all the best.   tom

Few visitors recognize that there is a forgotten world below the Roman Colosseum and Forum. The ancient maze of tunnels and quarries date back to the very beginning of this famous city. Locals, on the other hand, remember the existence of the underground pathways every time one of the ancient tunnels collapses, damaging the structures above. Hundreds of buildings and streets have fallen victim to the decaying tunnels.

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.
