Technology in ancient societies:
Ancient hydraulics and electricity in Sumer and Egypt

Priest technicians

A lot of ancient manuscripts may be misinterpreted and misunderstood if we view it only in a religious way. Sassoon and Dale have discovered in their book "The Manna Machine" that the Old texts of the Zohar (Book of Splendor) contain whole passages about a machine and it's technical instructions to build and maintain it. This machine was a manna-machine, a kind of food producing machine. The so-called priest-class was solely allowed to enter the 'sacred object'. The priests were actually no magicians but technicians!


"Secrets" of the "gods"

Sassoon and Dale say in their book 'The Manna Machine' that in ancient times religion and technology were one and the same. The priests in the temples were among the few who were chosen to know "the secrets of the gods".They could comprehend these secrets and they could control the incredible power of the machines that were put into their custody.

In connection to the Hamlet's Mill theory is that in prehistory it was customary to make up 'visions' if they wanted to convey ancient knowledge. They made up visions because they did not want to admit they were conveying ancient knowledge. They claim to have discovered that ancient scriptures have a hidden technological meaning. These scriptures have a religious and mystical character. A vision from The Zohar of Rabbi Simon seems like a description of an atomic reactor! Sassoon and Dale claim that magic is that technological knowledge and practice of the former visitors out of space. The science of our times evolves slowly into the direction of these visitors.


Impossible drilling accuracy in ancient Egypt

Engineer and researcher Christopher Dunn in his book 'The Giza Power Plant' has inspected and measured features of the Sarcophagus in the Kings Chamber at the Great Pyramid of Giza and has concluded that today, our civilization with our advanced drilling equipment is not yet able to drill holes with the skills and accuracy that the ancient Egyptians manifested but "impossibly could have had".


Hydraulic and steam power

Egypt had hydraulic power and steam power. This is described by Heron, a writer AD 100, who lists a few ancient inventions like: "... a slot machine, a surveyor's theodolite, a syringe, a solar-powered fountain and a mechanical singing bird." (Brennan.2000) The first steam engine, described by Heron, an "aeropile","...was created by heating water in a large sealed metal cauldron...(sounds like alchemy?) Two pipes carried steam from the cauldron into a metal sphere fixed on pivots above it. Protruding from this sphere were two angled narrow-gauge pipe outlets. Steam escaping from these outlets spun the sphere at 1,500 revolutions a minute."(Brennan, 2000)


Electricity in ancient Sumer

There are indications that Sumer, the oldest civilization known to us, had electricity. In ancient Sumer a battery was found at Baghdad made of pottery. This so-called Leyden jar is the evidence that ancient society used electricity.

In 1936 a 2000 years old jar was discovered. The yellow clay jar contained a copper tube, closed at one end with an asphalt plug. Inside the tube were rusted remains of an iron rod. If you put a kind of acid in it, like cider for example, the jar provides a low electric current. The jar as a simple cell generates a voltage and gives a current of electricity.


Hydraulic drive for temple doors

The ancient Egyptian hydraulic drive was applied to the "sesame open" doors of temples. This 'magical' opening was mechanical...


Bagdad battery

In the basement of the National Museum in Cairo, there is an artifact that resembles like a battery for storing electricity. The Indian scripture about 5000 BC, called the Kumbhadbawa Agastyamuni has a pretty detailed description of how to make a battery that gives an electrical current and that produces light. That current that produces light is called Mitra. (That reminds me of the Mithraic Mysteries of Babylon?) When various cells are connected to each other, that there is seen a very bright light. (See BrunÚs, Chapter 4)


Static electricity in ancient Egypt

 Ancient static electricity, was it a reality in Ancient Egypt?

The hieroglyphs in the Dendera temple are quite different from ordinary hieroglyphs, according to BrunÚs. In the crypt below there are reliefs with strange figures. In chapter two of his book there is a picture of a snake in a glass-like tube. This could be a power source, maybe a source of electricity. 

Solar science of ancient Egypt

About the ancient science of the Maya's Egyptians and Freemasons, see the book of Maurice Cotterell "The Tutankhamun Prophesies".  

Maurice Cotterell gives a recent explanation that doesn't reject or deny the real existence of astrology. In his book ' The Tutankhamon Prophesies', he explains that the electromagnetic radiation of the sun influences the moment of birth. The sun has four segments, varying regularly with positive and negative charges, electric and magnetic. These are not occult sciences as such, but scientific and archaeological findings. The tomb of Tutankhamun contains different artifacts that provide us with the solar science of the ancients. Now we know this, we can shed light upon astrology and see if the astrological laws could shed more light on our path. Why else would the ancients with their lost civilizations align their monuments to different star constellations, to autumn and spring equinoxes, and to the summer and winter solstices?
