Midrash Rabbah - Exodus VIII:3 ‘Go and exact a penalty of him.’ He said to him: ‘How shall I bring upon him the ten plagues? ' The reply was: ’And thou shalt take in thy hand this rod’ (IV, 17). R. Judah said: The rod weighed forty se'ah and was of sapphire and the ten plagues were engraved thereon in an abbreviated form -De Za K, aDaSH, Be'aHa B.1 God said: ‘In this order shalt thou bring upon him the plagues.’ And Aaron thy brother shall be thy prophet (VII, 1). ‘Just as the preacher sits and preaches whilst the interpreter sits before him, so shalt thou speak all that I shall command thee, [to Aaron] and Aaron thy brother will speak unto Pharaoh.’ By means of both of them were all these things performed, as it is said: And Moses and Aaron did all these wonders before Pharaoh (XI, 10).

The text has many things I do not understand, mainly the use of the word 'sapphire' as a type of wood and the exact weight (listed as 194.13 kilograms) of the staff. Does anybody have any other information about the Staff?

Okay, here we go . . .
I seriously hope that you have heard of the theory that states that the Ark of the Covenant was the power source of the Great Pyramids. The Giza Geomatrix theory states that, among other things, the pyramids served as a sort of reverse HAARP, powered by a device they call a "Reverse Solar Vortex Power Generator." (For the record, I do not believe in the thick layer of 2012 bunk they surround their hypothesis with. Their website is: gizageomatrix.com)
My original idea for what this RSVPG could be was the Ark, but that was constructed far after the Israelites left Egypt under the instruction of Moses/Akhenaten (www.suite101.com...).
Well, maybe it was what the Ark carried. After all, the granite "sarcophagus" had similar dimensions to the Ark, but it could not have fit inside. So, what did the Ark carry?
6 The priests then brought the ark of the LORD’s covenant to its place in the inner sanctuary of the temple, the Most Holy Place, and put it beneath the wings of the cherubim. 7 The cherubim spread their wings over the place of the ark and overshadowed the ark and its carrying poles. 8 These poles were so long that their ends could be seen from the Holy Place in front of the inner sanctuary, but not from outside the Holy Place; and they are still there today. 9 There was nothing in the ark except the two stone tablets that Moses had placed in it at Horeb, where the LORD made a covenant with the Israelites after they came out of Egypt.
(I figured, if they have any remnants of Templar lore in their veins, then they must know what was in the Ark, as the Templars found it in the remains of Solomon's Temple.)
I thus began researching the Rod of Aaron/Staff of Moses/Nehustan/Caduceus/Rod of Aesclepius/Karykeion.
Crown Prince Thutmose was the eldest son of Pharaoh Amenhotep III and Queen Tiye. He is also knowns as Djutmose, Thutmosis and Tuthmose. His name means "Thoth is Born" or "Child of Thoth." Thutmose seems to have died somewhere between year 27 and year 33 in his father's reign, so he never became a Pharaoh. If he had, he would have been Pharaoh Thutmose V, and the Amarna Period as we know would never had occurred.
Little is known about the doomed Prince Thutmose, he's a rather obscure Amarna figure. During his short life he was, however, a very important member of the royal family, clearing being bred to be Amenhotep III's sucessor. He was a member of the priesthood of Ptah in Memphis (possibly the High Priest) and had a role in the military (which, considering his youth, may have been honorary).
