i generally like where your going with things... but my view is the 'Ark'(arc)was something simplier and
complex at the same time.
... So, having said all that, my belief is that the Ark was a device..
First, it was made of wood....a particular kind of wood.
Then it was covered in gold.
It's dimensions are specific.
We know that it held the Rod of Aaron, the 10 commandments, and a jar of Manna.
, so we also know that it was an object that was not divinely controlled, but rather an object that sought to control the divine nature of
only the Priestly Class, both Israelites and Egyptians, kept the 'devine' devices properties/components/on a special & secret nature.
so, since the Priestly class were the keepers of thses devine devices,
the commoners were only told what they looked like...
and were told 'what' they were seeing...
so, I don't buy the story that the Israelite device had elaborate figures of cheribum overlayed in gold leaf... that is just myth for the masses.
these ancient electrical capacitors, which was first created by the Egyptian Priests & intellectuals, ... the lighting device was then Weaponized by
the Israelites who created a Plasma (ball lightning) device,
Aarons 'Rod', 'Tablets', Manna... are just 3 Priestly 'code words' for the 3 components required to make 'magical' electricity/power -of-god,
i.e. the 2 different metals and the acidic solution needed to construct a 'battery'...
(see: the ancient 'Baghdad battery' on a google search)
but, After the Israelite Priestly class studied further & improved upon the Egyptian technological uses of the device to electroplate items and to
generate 'light' at will (by the power of god)...
The Israelites weaponized & kept secret-upon-death the device which
had a power 10-100 fold more powerful than the primitive Egyptian device which was used only for peaceful uses & as an aide to mankind.
Once the 'Ark' burnt itself out during the conquest of Cannann campaigns,
the Priestly class couldn't re-charge the different polarities of the unlike metals, code named Tablets & Rod-of-Aaron... or else the solution aka:
manna was depleated and no refills were available...
so the power of the Ark was quietly put-to-rest, lest the commoners of the tribes get restless and rebel against the authority of the Priestly
the Ark story was made to infer that the Ark was taken away from Earth,
in any case the Ark & its myth was laid to rest by the elites of the time
the 2 metals were undoubedly some form of non-terrestial, & radioactive
element... i can see that the Tablets of Sinai, were likely meteorite slabs that had 'etchings' likely from atmospheric burning... which the
leadership 'seen' as the handwriting of god, which only the Priestly class & Moses could interpet....even though the masses were likely illiterate
so its just like the masses being told what the Arc looked like,
the masses had to believe the word of the leaders & priests as to the
'Laws' scribed on the Tablets.
I wonder why the Israelite tribes & Priests, didn't build a cannon barrel to direct the plazma balls of high energy electricity that the Ark
hey, thanks, i'll follow the thread ...
