Ancient Egyptian Art: The Doorway To Consciousness

Ancient Egyptian Art: The Doorway To Consciousness

Egypt and the great Pyramids are undoubtedly fascinating. But, apparently, rather than being a tomb for a pharaoh, the Great Pyramid is believed to be a repository of ancient wisdom, conveying in its proportions mathematical and astronomical relationships that were not known to modern science until recently. In his book, Secrets of the Great Pyramid, Peter Tompkins included an appendix by mathematician Livio Stechini.

Tompkins and Graham Hancock, both were convinced that the pyramid had links of an even older civilization and repository of its wisdom. Also, Graham Hancock believed that there might have been an extinction level event, of the older advanced civilisation and that the pyramid was a reminder for the future of what was lost in that cataclysm.

In the theories of G.I. Gurdjieff – a guide in Giza for many years, a map of “pre-sand” Egypt with the Sphinx depicted much earlier than recently thought, was mentioned. This resonated with Robert Schoch’s theories which talked about the striations at the base of the Sphinx resulting from rain or water erosion.

R. A. Schwaller de Lubicz’s The Temple in Man: Sacred Architecture and the Perfect Man, depicts his research at the Temple of Luxor that it is actually a perfectly detailed depiction of human anatomy indicating that the ancient science merged spirituality and addressed the mind-body dichotomy without any of the separations.

Science Of Consciousness

Apparently the Episode 1 of Magical Egypt explains that the scientific information known to the Egyptians related to a Science of Consciousness. Thos program suggests that most of the ancient Egyptian art is a depiction of Human or brain as a conduit of consciousness, resonating with the Eckhart Tolle’s wonderful concept of the “intelligence that runs your body”. It also suggests that the ancient Egyptians instead of worshiping primitive deities, actually understood and revered the intelligence of Nature.

Episode 2 of this program featured Brad Klausen, who talks about how his foray into ancient Egyptian art led him to study the brain and become well-versed in neuroscience.

He also claims that according to his investigation, various aspects of Egyptian shapes were faithfully depicted anatomical areas of the body, specially that of human brain. He has exquisite graphics to show how many of the Egyptian art forms depict the internal pasts of brain e.g. pineal gland and its location. Such hidden meaning in art was also apparent in the Renaissance.

Dr Mershberger was the first to suggest that an interpretation of Michelangelo’s Creation of Adam based on neuroanatomy: “God, in the process of creating Adam, gives him the gift of ‘intellect,’ symbolized by the brain.”

Apparently, parts of the brain seem to be outlined in the image of God, in the Creation of Adam in the Sistine Chapel, according to neurologists and Klausen in Magical Egypt. On a closer look, a tiny “gap” between God and Adam also represents the synapse, where mind may reside and from this perspective humanity is a lower form of the highest scale. Such insights assign a primary significance to the human form, as the micro reflection of the macro (intelligent) universe. These theories also validate the ideas of other scientists, like Dr. Robert Lanza, and his theory of Biocentrism.
