I know that Egyptologists, academics and other intelligent people looking at the Egyptian culture and religious beliefs have a complete misunderstanding of what they are looking at. I am an esoterist; therefore, I look at problems esoterically as well as exoterically.
My expertise lies in the study of the first chapter of Genesis esoterically: what this means is that every letter of the Torah’s texts has a symbol associated to it and every letter is alphanumerically structured and the text has to be studied this way or not at all. I have been studying the first chapter of Genesis for almost four decades and there is no doubt in my mind that the esoteric storyline of the Torah, that run parallel to the exoteric storyline, in its symbolic and alphanumeric structure is base solely upon the Egyptian esoteric religion.
The key to understanding Egypt is the Nile River when its waters yearly dump its black earth onto both the east and west shores: fertilizing the land (or it did in ancient times before the Aswan Dam destroyed that esoteric nuance). Note that on the west side of the Nile only temples built to the dead are allowed; in contrast, on the east side of the Nile only temples built to life are allowed. This is because the Egyptian believe that when the Sun set in the west it died and is reborn the next day after descending into the DUAT: First Times, which is also the name of the pyramid complex on the Giza plateau.
In looking at a map of the mainland of Egypt (not the Sinai) as the left and right brain with the pineal gland represented by the Nile you would have a somewhat perfect grasp of what Egypt is all about. Note that the Pharaoh headdress has a serpent at the point of the forehead where the pineal gland lies representing the Kundalini Serpent.
Taking the symbolism of what the pineal gland function is believed to represent and contrast that to what the Nile gives to Egypt overflowing the brain so-to-speak revitalizing the soul/psyche of the individual it is not difficult to grasp that Egypt was all about spiritual life: not materialistic death.
I can tell you unequivocally that the geologic landscape of Egypt is a symbolic representation of the first word of Genesis: BERESHITH (בראשית), which is translated a number of ways: one is “in the beginning”, which most of us are familiar with; however, BERESHITH (בראשית) can also be translated “in (the) first sign”. The first sign of the Zodiac is Aries/April. April First is the traditional date that the Jews have for God creating the universe.
The letter/word RESH (ראש) represents symbolically the Nile River. BETH (ב) symbolically represents the eastern shores of the Nile and YUD (י) and TAV (ת) combined symbolically represent the western shores of the Nile.
BERESHITH (ראשית) can be analyzed ad infinitum: believe me it has a bottomless depth. Many of those interpretations have to do with the Egyptian culture: especially the Sphinx and the nine pyramids on the Giza plateau; however, most important now is the discovery that BERESHITH (בראשית) is a map of the entire Egyptian landscape on both a physical and esoteric level.
Also BERESHITH (בראשית) is the entire bible: meaning that the Old and New Testaments are commentaries on its infinite depths.
I did not want to air out in the blog the enormous implications of this theory; however, consider that the geodetic location of Egypt had to be studied and surveyed (especially Sinai, which has esoteric nuances relating to this theory) long before it was chosen by the people that colonized the area, which means that the entire Egyptian religion esoterically had to be completely understood by its indigenous culture long before the land of Egypt was inhabited by the colonizers. This places the birth of Egypt long before five thousand years ago; rather, it place it beginning far into antediluvian times: before Babel.
