(WIKIPEDIA) The Eye of Horusis an ancient Egyptian symbol of protection, royal power and good health. The eye is personified in the goddess Wadjet (also written as Wedjat,Uadjet, Wedjoyet, Edjo or Uto and as The Eye of Ra) or "Udjat" The name Wadjet is derived from "wadj" meaning "green" hence "the green one" and was known to the Greeks and Romans as "uraeus" from the Egyptian "iaret" meaning "risen one" from the image of a cobra rising up in protection.Wadjet was one of the earliest of Egyptian deities who later became associated with other goddesses such as Bast, Sekhmet, Mut, and Hathor. She was the tutelary deity of Lower Egypt and the major Delta shrine the "per-nu" was under her protection. Hathor is also depicted with this eye.Funerary amulets were often made in the shape of the Eye of Horus. The Wedjat or Eye of Horus is "the central element" of seven "gold, faience,carnelian and lapis lazuli" bracelets found on the mummy of Shoshenq II. The Wedjat "was intended to protect the king [here] in the afterlife" and to ward off evil. Ancient Egyptian and Near Eastern sailors would frequently paint the symbol on the bow of their vessel to ensure safe sea travel.

I think it's a remarkable resemblance.  I think most of what we see as hieroglyphics are more than the story they are portraying.  For example, the Pharaoh netting/catching birds could be an analogy of him 'reigning in his errant thoughts' on an esoteric level.  Another example would be the Djed Pillar representing the spine, Tree of Life etc.  This is another interesting bit to add to the bunch in my opinion.

Intersesting.   But im guessing it is just a representation of the falcon god horus and the human eye is mans desire to think on that level.

I would go with taniwha: the Horus Eye is widely believed to represent the markings of a hawk indigenous to North Africa.

What it boils down to is the ancient Egyptian understanding of the functions of the human brain: they did not understand its functions. They believed the heart to be the brain. Consider the practice of mummification. In those cases where the excerebration was performed, the brain was removed in globs generally through the nostril. It was destroyed in the process. The Egyptians did not even try to preserve the brain, which basically clarifies its low significance in their culture.

  • Hey, I'm not wrong. I'm just not completely right.

I also admit that the resemblance is erie. However, I doubt the Eye came from someone dissecting a human brain.

I think the pineal gland gets more coverage and powers then it deserves.

Here at Intel we make processors on 12 inch wafers. And, the individual processors on the wafers are called die. And, I am employed to check these die. That is why I am the DieChecker.

By God, I think you would be right if it didn't look so much like a clitoris and looked a little more like an eye.

My goodness, Harte, it's kind of scary how your mind works.

Yes, you're right, but still... :w00t:

The Eye of Horus was seen as The Eye of God ( or Goddess ) looking down and offering protection as stated in the OP.

This protection extended to the King of Egypt who's power came from the Goddess Wadjet (later 2 goddesses) under her overall authority.

The Hourglass Nebula as pictured by the Hubble has been called the 'Eye of God' and its unexplained shape with 2 circles overlapping and the

'Eye' in the middle has been compared to proposed ancient landscape geometry in Britain which uses the design of the Great Pyramid.

This discovery, and further revelations based on it, raises the possibility that this is an ' End of Time ' period.

It's a grand unified woo theory.

It was so much easier to blame it on Them. It was bleakly depressing to think that They were Us. If it was Them, then nothing was anyone's fault. If it was us, what did that make Me? After all, I'm one of Us. I must be. I've certainly never thought of myself as one of Them. No one ever thinks of themselves as one of Them. We're always one of Us. It's Them that do the bad things.

Very cool ~ thanks for showing me this.  Although I will say, of the four flourishes of the Eye of Ra, the falcon is missing the curled descending mark - which, to me, is one of the more defining marks.  I guess the dissected brains descending curled line isn't that convincing either.  All the same, what beautiful majestic creatures.

Ancient Egyptian physicians, priests and academics were well versed in the anatomy of the human body...it wouldn't have been that much of a stretch, for them to link the two...
