Hey you two,
Did you know that that was how Joan Grant did it in her book
The character Sekeeta undergoes an initiation ceremony that includes being sealed and isolated within a pyramid (if I remember that correctly).
When she emerges she is called Sekhet-Ra and she rules Aegypt with a just hand.
Winged Pharaoh was followed by other historical fantasies, or as Grant called them, "Far Memory books," or "previous life autobiographies".
This book was initially accepted as a novel; Grant's first husband was a barrister and Egyptologist who spent many years prior to World War II
working on excavations in Egypt, and as Joan accompanied him on some of these expeditions she was quite aware of many facets of Egyptian history.
"Winged Pharaoh" was claimed by some to in fact be a re-incarnationist autobiography. Historians claimed that the calendar used in the book had
never existed and also that there was no evidence whatsoever for the existence of an avenue of trees referred to in the book. After World War II a
text was found which when translated proved to be the calendar referred to by Grant in the 1937 book.
Great book. Have either of you read it?

Happy Sunday to you!
Nope, never read it or even heard of it. Now if you've read this thread
or other threads I've written, then I flat out say that a lot of 'truth'
can be found in fiction, and I think it's fair to say that Michael alludes
to that as well. (oh by the way.. just because Michael and I are honing
in on a similar theory about the GP, don't assume that we are friends..
I've never met the man or even shared an email with him..)
Thanks for bringing up that book... might be worth a read just for
In my opinion, the problem with so-called past life memories is not
whether in fact there are other lives or not..the problem is that the
people who have them, if they are in fact sensing something with
even the tiniest truth to it, are probably using a very unstable and
nascent ability.. so the corruption of what they 'see' must be
close to 100% in many cases. As a matter of fact the difference
between an active imagination and a 'psychic experience' is usually
For example, I have a vivid memory of being a highwayman in
Nepal, who mugged the Buddha, kicked him in the nuts, and
took nearly the only thing he was carrying - a 4 inch tall carved
wooden statue (and a bowl and a sack and a few odds and ends).
Now did I indeed live a life like that? it sure feels like that.. but
I do have a vivid imagination, and that memory does not actually
add anything to my life.. so I choose to ignore it. Now on the
other hand, Lakota Sioux like me have been noted to have
DNA markers that go back to the Gobi desert.. so perhaps
my DNA... well enough on this off topic comment..
But back to the concept of the GP as a god-maker. I keep hearing
that phrase "the GP IS Osiris". Hm. Now I'm sure there are many
theories about what that means...
But wouldn't it be a kick in the pants if "Osiris" was "living in the
GP to this day, using it as his body?". Have you ever heard of
the book "Lord of Light" by Roger Zelazny?
In that book, the "Buddha" the "great souled Sam" was transmigrated
into the magnetic field around the earth, to keep him around without
killing him, but to get him out of the way because the other 'gods'
were annoyed with him.
In this case, the GP might be a one use machine... I'm sure that
"Osiris" or "Khufu" or whomever was trying to get stuck into
that pyramid wouldn't want anyone else to 'put themselves in
his genie bottle".
Now that would be an interesting twist.. what if indeed the GP
was far more ancient like some people think.. what if "Osiris"
was 'in there'. But here comes Khufu and he wants to be an
immortal god too.. so maybe he tries to retrofit it, to take
Osiris's spot and kick him out!
Well.. this is all just flights of fantasy.. I'm not read up
enough on the actual scholarly facts on Egypt to counter-
balance my 'creativity mechanism'. Let's call it that.
