You yourself have said multiple times that you must think like the artist/authors in order to understand. You would have the world think they carved two very large images over the walls in Dendera, with only 2 minor changes between them... for what? Do you think they were practicing for the walls of the Temple? In actuality, it is you, and the entire gang of forum trolling hoodlums that seems to make up the majority of posts in this thread that have "either ignored or misrepresented" the "merits of my own posts."
At this point, you and several others have taken to accusing me of being juvenile. If you take a step back and look at the situation, that accusation in itself is a very juvenile thing to do. Do you feel as if you are "stooping to the level" of someone who has ignored you?
That's exactly how I feel.
I have not brought fiction into the argument, I referenced several movies, as more of a joke than an argument. I think it's pretty obvious that it was a joke. I only did so after being accused of presenting "fictitious arguments" which are not only fictitious, but actually supported by the mythological references and inscription translations which you yourself brought to the argument. Even after pointing out that these things support my argument in several ways, not the least of which being a very blatant description of prayer included in the inscription, I still cannot get an answer regarding what is the single most paramount change between three huge reliefs carved in the Dendera crypt. You've "given up" because my mind can't be changed, without addressing the main point of my argument about Dendera... Do you not see that as strange?
I'll again post the diagram I created. Calling these differences nothing more than "direction of the ka's" shows a lack of respect for the artists and traditions of the Egyptians. This was not an arbitrary change, or a mistake.. it was clearly done on purpose. Look at the three reliefs side by side... I have never once claimed that the "bulbs", as you call them, are a mind control device. What I am claiming is that they are representative of a phenomenon which the ancient Egyptians did not understand, and attributed to the ba of Horus, which is also supported by the inscriptions. The ba is not the important thing, though you might be clever to note that it actually represents the mind of the god. What is important is the phenomenon they described, and it is clearly represented by the "direction of the ka's."
You also acknowledge the Egyptian belief of divine possession by Pharoah's, yet refuse to acknowledge that a simple scientific explanation of such a thing is mind control. This is not an argument, it is a truth, and it serves to further my argument. Several here have mistaken Harsomptus for Horus because of this incorrect understanding. I will ask once again, if two gods have a human child, and that child's mind is essentially the mind of the father (as the Egyptians believed in the case of Horus and Harsomptus) is not mind control a valid explanation for how this could happen?
As far as you not having time to read through my blog, that's fine.. I understand. I equally do not have time to rewrite the same argument I have presented in lengthy detail with links over, and over again. As the conversation has shifted from a "scientific one" to a more historical one, I'd prefer not to go back and discuss the details of the physics involved, needless to say, there are certainly peer reviewed scientific papers on my blog, in links which have previously been provided.
I will leave you all with this. When there is an argument taking place, and one person shows evidence in the form of a picture with large red circles on it.. and the other side fails to comment on them at all, then walks away... I'd say you lost.
Again these are large pictures, hidden in the depths of a very important religious temple, covering the entirety of the walls of a room. The reliefs are the important part, ignoring them is nonsensical.
Out of curiosity, do any of your references translate the very short inscriptions directly above the serpent/ba?
I havent mentioned it before, but the placement of the ba in the reliefs seems to be paramount also. In all pictures, the ba is being carried by the arms of the djed pillar and Heh.. This could be a reference to the perceived location of the ba of Horus -- both in the sky (Heh) and on the ground (somehow assisted by the djed pillars... perhaps there was an older one that was mechanical.)
The most significant however, is its position in relationship to the kneeling/sitting ka's... right at the top of their heads, no matter where they are in the picture (the ba is rising). This is, of course, where the Egyptians believed the ba to be located, in the heads of people.
