Thank you! I've been an avid spectator of ATS for awhile now but have never taken the time to give my thoughts. I appreciate your positive comment and take it as the warmest welcome possible to ATS


Astrocyte: Like I said, I'm new to ATS so forgive me for not having the proper definition of what is considered "shoddy reasoning". Afterall, "shoddy reasoning" is reasoning in it's most crude form. I'd tend to view it as an unpolished attempt at reason. With all due respect, the pure true reason as to why or how the statue is moving is one that no one knows; and that's obvious due to the fact that this topic is in existence. Please note that I am not saying any of this in a sarcastic or derogatory tone. Just merely using "shoddy reasoning" for my previously, metaphysical post.

In regards to my 3rd point from my previous post, I looked at the distance from the Manchester Museum at the University of Manchester to the tip of the Great Pyramid at Giza and the amount is 4,098,860.34 yards. The angle of the path from UoM to the Great Pyramid is 323.81 Degrees. It's intriguing to me that:

100(2Φ) = 323.60679

THE BOOK OF LIFE

Stone upon stone they raised it up
Till it towered above the sand;
And the walls were carved with symbols and signs
That none could understand.

Tis the book of life that was left on earth
For the time of the World's rebirth,
When the centuries past
Shall have brought, at last
A light that shall always glow,
'Tis the task of four
To unlock the door
And allow the mist to rise;
When all shall see the Eternal tree
Spring upward before their eyes.

Strive on, my son, till they work be done
And memories past shall rise,
That thine eyes may know as the past doth grow,
All the signs thou art left to devise;
So memory wake and unfold to thine eyes
All the secrets that once were thine,
That this rebirth may bless the Earth,
And remove the debts of time.

(The Teachings of Osiris - H.C. Randall-Stevens. 1927)

This is one of those cases, where I'd actually like for there not to be a simple explanation.


Doing some digging, I found another article on this - from Campbell Price dated Feb. 2013
Here
It also looks like he isn't the only one with a key to that display, according to that site.

This is the part that I like:

The inscription on the back pillar reads: “An offering which the king gives to Osiris, Lord of Life, that he may give a voice offering, consisting of bread, beer, oxen and fowl for the Ka-spirit of’.


And apparently I'm not the only one left thinking...
Maybe the poor fella just needs a cold one, after all those years?

Very strange.

It appears to be looking for the snack bar.
I would too after not eating for 5,000 years.

So, that'd rule out my April Fool theory, but then leave the museum even more remiss in its lack of experimentation in the time they've known about it.

To me it is obvious the statue ONLY moves when the electrical lighting is 'ON'. Electrical lighting varies greatly, some types do produce vibrations. Some lighting requires the use of transformers which are very common and do produce vibrations. Some vibrations are very high frequency and low amplitude which can be imperceptible to the casual observer. Another electrical device that causes vibration is the relay - relays are commonly used to switch lighting circuits 'ON' and 'OFF'. I believe this is no mystery.

Osiris is the black God, God of the midnight sun.

Maybe his turning is symbolic, and signifies his imminent resurrection.

This is if your looking into the spiritual significance of such an event anyway.

Even so, it makes for very interesting research material.

The curse from the pharoahs is a result of opening a tomb with 3,000 plus year old air inside.

The people who are present at the opening of King Tut's tomb mostly died from unknown causes caused by incurable infections present in the air.

Campbell is urging members of the public to come along and take a look for themselves.


'It would be great if someone could solve the mystery,' he added.

I bet it would.

Think of the increase in admission revenue.

Museum is going to be robbed Oceans 13 style and the giant tunnel boring machine is causing the vibrations.The only logical explanation. LOL

Ivan,
It would seem to rule out your April Fools theory, yes. I do agree with you however... the museum should have been properly studying this from the get-go. Why wait until now? Also, in that article (I'd need to go back and re-read) but it seems that the author implies something to the effect of "it's a new display."

Found it: (emphasis added)

When I first noticed that one of our Middle Kingdom statuettes (Acc. no. 9325) had been turned around 180 degrees to face the back of its case in our new Ancient Worlds galleries, I wondered who had changed the object’s position this without telling me.


Many questions here that could use some answers, like:

* Does that mean new, as in the display is new?
* Was the statue somewhere else (in the museum) before?
* Any clues as to whom this piece originally belonged to, or tomb it was found in?
And as brought up earlier - and is a possible key point to this mystery:
* What direction does it initially face, and end up after "moving?"



Regardless, the time-lapse video does show the statue rotating... at least without someones hand in there. I'm sure there is a simple explanation, but hey.. I want to believe.
Good thread!

www.dailymail.co .uk

The 10-inch tall relic, an offering to the Egyptian God Osiris, was found in a mummy's tomb and has been at the Manchester Museum for 80 years.

But in recent weeks, curators have been left scratching their .s after they kept finding it facing the wrong way. They now believe there could be a 'spiritual explanation' for the turning statue.

It is believed that there is a curse of the pharaohs which strikes anyone who dares to take relics from a pyramid tomb.

Experts decided to monitor the

Come on - The Daily Mail - I read it as a 'dirty secret'. I saw this, during my indulgence - read the comments - the one about 'needing tourists' sounded about right.

Vibrations seem likely on glass...

This is why doilies were invented!

That video makes it seem as if the people in the museum would have to have earthquaking footsteps to be able to move the statue


Honestly, if the guy shaking/moving the table is trying to simulate the minor footsteps on a granite floor of the 100's (if not 1000's) of visitors daily to the museum, then he needs to equate the forces. It would need to be downsized to him tapping his fingernail on the glass of the table instead of earthquaking it
Either that or there would have to simultaneously be a tremor/earthquake occurring every time the statue rotates, which I don't see happening :-/

sidenote: can't believe someone is already on the job of debunking it -.-

I think the engineer who commented on the article nailed it...


There are vibrations in the glass most likely from an old magnetic ballast in the fluorescent lighting built into the case, which hum and vibrate as the bulb begins to go bad. The statue only turns when the lighting is on, reinforcing this explanation. Assuming there is a slight angle towards the back of the case, it is sensible that the pivot point under the the body of the statue would have a greater influence over the vibration of the significantly less massive rotational component of the base which would have a significantly greater amplitude of longitudinal vibration. The smaller statues would not be similarly affected because of the far less significant mass at the pivot point and therefore have a more uniform vibration response. I am a computer engineering student at Drexel University in Philadelphia.

Sounds like the perfect fit.

Mind you, a doilie is just as good a solution as a new ballast/bulb
