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