"Many feel, a few think, and fewer still there are who can express their thoughts.

The great poets who gave us beautiful teachings in moral, in truth, where
did they get them from?

This life here is the school in which they
learned, this life is the stage on which they saw and gathered.

They are the worshippers of beauty in nature and in art. In all conditions of life they meditate upon beauty and find good points in all those they see.

They gather all that is beautiful, from the good and the wicked both. Just like the bee
takes the best from every flower and makes honey from it, so they gather all
that is beautiful and express it through their imagination in the form of music, poetry and art, as well as in their thoughts and deeds in everyday life".

The EYE OF HORUS has a very specific meaning. The eye is represented as a figure with 6 parts. These 6 parts correspond to the six senses - Touch, Taste, Hearing, Thought, Sight, Smell. These are the 6 parts of the *eye*. The eye is the receptor of *input*. It has these six doors, to receive data.

The construction of the eye follows very precise laws. The senses are ordered according to their importance. And according to how much energy must be *eaten* by the *eye* for an individual to receive a particular sensation. All of the sensory data input is *food*.

In the Ancient Egyptian measurement system, the EYE OF HORUS represented a fractional quantification system to measure parts of a whole. [ Get a book on Egyptian stuff or scan the internet for Egyptian Math see for e.g. "Understanding Hieroglyphs" by H. Wilson, ISBN 0-8442-4604-2 ]

The entire eye measured 1 heqat. And each of the parts of the eye measured fractions of the heqat.

[ THE EYE OF HORUS ]



These are the parts of the EYE and their corresponding associated fraction values :-

1/64
1/32
1/16
1/8
1/4
1/2

The corresponding sense data are :-
1/64 heqat Touch
1/32 heqat Taste
1/16 heqat Hearing
1/8 heqat Thought
1/4 heqat Sight
1/2 heqat Smell

Also, in the Egyptian system there is the unit of the ro. And by definition 320 ro = 1 heqat. The symbol for the ro is the mouth, it represented one mouthful. Again associating these measures with food, or input data.

Now if we consider the ro as the smallest unit of input energy needed for the input to *register* as sense data. We note,320 = 5 x 64 and so in terms of ro we have 5 ro to register a Touch 10 ro to register a Taste 20 ro to register a Sound 40 ro to register a Thought 80 ro to register a Light 160 ro to register a Smell

To see how the drawings of the eye correspond to the various senses note:-

1. Touch 1/64 heqat or 5 ro



This part of the EYE represents planting a stick into the ground. Like planting a stalk that will take root. The Earth represents touch. Planting itself represents physical contact and touching.

2. Taste 1/32 heqat or 10 ro



This part of the EYE represents the sprouting of the wheat or grain from the planted stalk. It is the food we put into our mouth. And so represents taste. Taste is also = Touch + Shape. That is to say, the different tastes we experience come from touching different shapes. So, touch is more a fundamental sense that taste.

3. Hearing 1/16 heqat or 20 ro



This part of the EYE represents the EAR. The figure points towards the ear on the face. Also, it has the shape of a horn or musical instrument. When we Hear a sound or combination of sounds we find this to be pleasing or unplesant. The sound has a taste for us, causing a preference. Sound requires Touch + Taste and so is a combination of the lower senses.

4. Thought 1/8 heqat or 40 ro


This part of the EYE represents thought. We often use our eyebrows to express our thoughts. And this facial feature is closest to that part of the forehead we associate with thinking. We raise our eyebrows to express surprise, for example. Thought = Touch + Taste + Hearing. If you think Smile about it. Thinking is a kind of surpressed sound. The language we think in is like the *touch* of muscle prior to giving voice. And of course, we have a *taste* for different types of thoughts.

5. Sight 1/4 heqat or 80 ro



This is the pupil of the EYE. And so no more needs to be said. It represents seeing, or the sensation of light.

6. Smell 1/2 heqat or 160 ro



This part of the EYE points to the nose. It even looks like a nose. It represents the sensation of smell.

There is a lot more to this analysis, but that's the basics.


Hope you find all this fascinating, it is really cool!!

Dear Snickers,

I really enjoyed the beauty
of this, with these graphics
The taste seem to differ
between one and the other.

(As for myself it is the blue
background that makes this
site so beautiful and special)

Very interesting and informative
Thank you!

Love,

Lilie
Hi Lilie,

I sent you a private topic, perhaps it will explain things a bit.

uuummm, I can't believe you had more to say on the background color than you did on the post I did for you which took a really long time... it took almost an hour.. wah wah wah wah.... im taking my toys and going home.

love
snickvictimfeelingblue (sniff,sniff)

waaaahhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!

The mind is like a parachute, it only functions when it is open.
OK, I was on an airoplane on the day this was posted! I'm feeling guilty to MYSELF that I haven't seen this post until now..

SnickerMars, I am soooo pleased you shared this Egyptian numbering!!! THIS IS GIVNOLOGY!!! Wow. Great stuff! Meanwhile, just to boff you JUST A LITTLE BIT.. he he..

The Eye first posted was reversed from what you are describing? The cool eye in a circle you showed first doesn't have the 1/16 1/4 1/2 you later mention??? Is the eye that is numbers for the higher priests like you? he he..

I would - will - love hearing what you think of Wallace Budge's heiroglyphic translations.. TRULY!! Here are some funny heiros for numerals, I like the 10.. he he.. no wonder people didn't respect them! Full frontal nudity in their numerals!!! 10 oclock, don't look!!! he he..





These images are links to the bigger images. All from Egyptian Language by Wallace Budge around 1899. I so often wonder who has good or true translations of heiroglyphics.. I read book after book and they simply contradict each other, and soom seem to have opinions instead of translations... aaa!!!

My feeling is that the Egyptians were so so so smart, so wise and intuitive, that we haven't a clue what they were saying because we don't have their transcendant wisdom. ?? Comments?

Also after hours of looking at keys and texts I feel that.. in the old days when I would take acid or psychadelic mushrooms I might get closer to understanding heiroglyphics, but jeez, in this society taking those psychrotropic substances isn't really healthy.. dang!!!

I continually go with Budge's keys and try to analyze heiroglyphics, if anyone has suggestions please help!! TANX!!!

Wisdom and transcendant awareness to all, Teo
Thank you for sharing Teo.

I am reading the same books and not really getting much wiser.
You are right that the Egyptians were highly intelligent; we probably cannot comprehend their
wisdom.

So keep on plodding through more and more books!
