The constellation Hydra is the largest of the 88 classical constellations of the Zodiac. It stretches itself 102.5° (about 1/3rd of the horizon in the southern hemisphere) from Cancer, via Leo, Virgo and Libra, or from June through October or about 1/3rd of the year, in zenith during the height of the annual Nile floodings. To the ancient Hebrews this constellation was named Leviathan, and is directly related to the annual floodings of the Nile, and the power to control and forsee the different stages of the rise and fall of the Nile throughout the year— turned the ancient Egyptian Pharaohs into gods. Or as Job 41:25 goes to describe the Leviathan:

«When he raises himself up the mighty are afraid; at the crashing they are beside themselves.»




The first indications of the rise of the river may be seen at the first of the cataracts of the Nile (at Aswan) as early as the beginning of June, and a steady increase goes on until the middle of July, when the increase of water becomes very great. The Nile continues to rise until the beginning of September, when the level that remains stationary for a period of about three weeks, sometimes a little less. In October it rises again, and reaches its highest level. From this period it begins to subside, and though it rises yet once more and reaches occasionally its former highest point, it sinks steadily until the month of June when it is again at its lowest level. Flooding reached Aswan about a week earlier than Cairo, and Luxor 5 – 6 days earlier than Cairo. Typical heights of flood were 45 feet (13.7 metres) at Aswan, 38 feet (11.6 metres) at Luxor (and Thebes) and 25 feet (7.6 metres) at Cairo.

Leviathan is an anthropomorphism of the Nile River and its A) 7 heads and B) 10 horns were A) the 7 bodies of the Nile (separated by 6 cataracts, see pic above and link), and B) there would be several canals dug out leading into what is arid desert these days, but back then these great plains were irrigated and were considered the world's grain reserves (ref. the story of Joseph in Egypt). Herodotus speaks of elaborate canal systems and a gigantic man-made lake with connected irrigation in the middle of what is now the Libyan desert, half the size of Lake Victoria and a perimeter equalling Egypt's shoreline or 3 600 stades, dug out and connected to the Nile via an elaborate system of canals and sluices. Below you can se a sketch I made based on satellite images and reading the terrain in the Egypto-Libyan desert:


So 7 heads of the Dragon are the 7 different bodies of the Nile, and the 10 horns are artificial canals and connected streams. The Bible records in allegory how the Nile was tamed and how they attributed the technology, fertility and power to the gods (Psalms 74:14-15):

You crushed the heads of Leviathan; you gave him as food for the creatures of the wilderness.
You split open springs and brooks; you dried up ever-flowing streams.



When the Sun entered the constellation Hydra, the Nile would start to rise, as if the Monsoon would pull the water dragon down from his heaven and unleash it upon the areas surrounding the river. When the Sun would exit Hydra the Nile would start falling again steadily towards next June when it all started over again. Also, since Jewish Passover (time of the Exodus) is placed in the calendar according to the Vernal Equinox and follows the tropical year, and since the place of sunrise at Vernal Equinox moves through the zodiac over a period of just about 26 000 years due to precession of the Axis Mundi, the Earth Axis, counting backwards through history to when the Exodus is supposed to have happened, around 1500 BC, the tropical year started a few days short of 120 days later in the year, around this very date, in mid-July, when the Sun (Michael) entered the sector of Leviathan/Hydra (Michael casting the Water Dragon down, anthropomorphism of the water cycle, the Monsoon and the flooding Nile, ref. Revelation 12), when the Nile would start its annual flooding for real. Exodus 19:4

«You yourselves have seen what I did to the Egyptians, and how I bore you on eagles’ wings and brought you to myself [at Mt. Sinai].»



Thus the event of the «Red Sea Crossing» (Exodus 14) happened exactly during the height of the annual Nile floodings, and was most likely in reality Moses navigating through an elaborate system of wadis and Nile crossings, sluices and canals, just as the Nile would turn into a literal raging sea monster and cover the whole Nile Valley with water and turn the delta into a boiling monster. Moses signalled to the people controlling the sluices at a particular crossing, the floodgates were closed and Israel could cross over to the other side of the crossing, or walk quite a while upstream on the dry canal bed, and when they were all come all the way, Moses would signal again, and the dam-workers would open the floodgates and the Egyptian army would be crushed by billions of tons of water as they would be heading straight into the massive body of Nile water.

The Tabernacle was a potash soap factory. Seaweed is great for making potash soap. The lye from seaweed is extra strong

To the ancients the Nile and constellation Hydra were two sides of the same coin. The Nile consists of seven stair like steps, and as the water from the Monsoon rains filled up the different levels, gravity started its magic. In most grimoires I've seen Michael the archangel represents the Sun. Hydra is the Water Dragon (the Enemy or Satan) whom Michael toss down to Earth thus starting the annual floodings, an anthropomorphic display of the water cycle and the annual Monsoon rains with the resulting floodings. Today the Aswan Dam turns these flooding waters into pure hydro-electricity, and the water level of the Nile is held in check. The con part of that is that the Nile no longer brings nourishing silt deposits to the Nile Valley, so the soil quality drops for every year. As for the other things in my claim, I could post a bunch of Bible quotes etc. and struggle to have people see the connections, but in short the Nile does consist of a bunch of side-rivers and even today a few canals, at least ten, and the 6 cataracts slice the Nile into seven bodies. Look into the phenomenon of annual floods in Egypt and check out the links I posted, it's mostly there.

Ezekiel 29:3

«Pharaoh king of Egypt, the great dragon that lies in the midst of his streams...»

Once again you fascinate me, this premise reminds me of the theory that Jonah and the whale was about sailing under a constellation!

I suppose the 7 horns and 10 heads may cause us to rethink the interpretation of Revelation being about Rome! Very interesting.

Not really. The Empires of the world is the Beast. Leviathan/Nile is the Dragon

I cant add up the number, the reference is still 6.. Your statement is 7+10, its a great story.. But i cant move pass the story part if i cant find observational evidence of it being as it is in your statement..
Its nothing personal, its the way im taught to see fact as..

Six so called cataracts split the Nile in seven parts. Take a rope and cut it six times, and shasam, you have seven pieces of rope. Or take a match, break it six times and you have seven pieces.

Another name for this dragon is Yamm a personification of water, a water dragon. He has ten horns.

The below is from the wikipedia article about the Canaanite sea god Yam (AKA Leviathan and Tiamat) and his enemy Baal Hadad («Firstborn son of El»):


In Ugaritic texts, Yam's special enemy Hadad is also known as the "king of heaven" and the "first born son" of El, whom ancient Greeks identified with their god Cronus, just as Baal was identified with Zeus, Yam with Poseidon and Mot with Hades. Yam wished to become the Lord god in his place. In turns the two beings kill each other, yet Hadad is resurrected and Yam also returns. Some authors have suggested that these tales reflect the experience of seasonal cycles in the Levant. en.wikipedia.org...(god)

The rise of the Nile would not be related to observed rain fall. The rainfall was too far away to see, further South. So the flooding seen by the people (priests, astrologers) was more closely related to observable star patterns.

You underestimate the ancients, they managed to build the Pyramids, that alone should sufficient to blow your mind away. They found coca inside Tut-Ankh-Amon's sarcophagus. That means they had contacts with South America.

Revelations 16:13
King James Bible
And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet.




Revelations 13:
1 And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.

2 And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.

It appears following BIBLE information that the Leviathan is some type of Chimera, with AVATAR POSSESSION ABILITY as it's said there is within it a unclean spirit that resembles a Frog...
Very descriptive in the authors writing especially considering human or alien genetic splicing technology...

Interesting thread however

That dragon and the spirit though may be from another dimension where similar being/deity exist, maybe even Hydra...

I mean, it's certainly theorized that Egyptians had been to the Americas several thousand years ago....but the small pieces of evidence that suggest that are not considered absolute proof....

As far as your original suggestion...how do you reconcile later verses found in Job that would simply seem out of context if your theory was accurate....

“Can you draw out Leviathan with a fishhook or press down his tongue with a cord?” - What is the author of Job trying to say? It doesn't add up contextually if your theory is accurate.....Not just that though, almost the entire chapter of Job41 seems to point to something other than the river Nile.... most notably, imo, verse23 "The flakes of his flesh are joined together:
they are firm in themselves; they cannot be moved."

Interesting theory, but I'd just like more substance to substantiate the claim....

Politics!

Just to see if I understand this: Ezekiel was writing from Mesopotamian region. He wrote against Egypt, and instead of referring to Tiamat/Marduk struggle he refers to Egyptian Dragon cycle.

Therefore, Author of Revelation is taking his cue from Ezekiel's example and doing the same, rather than use Marduk imagery because of association with Babylon, as some have concluded, it's actually Egypt being spoken of.

Is that pretty much your thesis, or have I misunderstood?

This is an allegorical explanation of different technology they used to tame the river of rivers. Jaws and hooks, eagle wings and water standing behind walls at both sides of Moses when they were crossing the Yam Suph. Thoth also in his prophecies describe all of Egypt as green and fertile also the parts which are now dry desert.


Interesting theory, but I'd just like more substance to substantiate the claim....

Be a little creative and read Job 41 and see if you can think of waterway technology which could be explained that way.

And then read § 149 and 150 in Book II of Herodotus' Histories ==> www.sacred-texts.com... and www.sacred-texts.com...
