I believe the Egyptians were very smart people. I believe they studied sound, magnetism, and electricity in great detail, and they documented their
findings in carvings and paintings to teach others. I also believe that archaeologists have a tendency to look at these carvings and paintings, and
assume they were created by unintelligent people, and also assume almost all of it is religious in nature. In the end, they overlook what might be
something else all together.
With that said, I wanted to bring this particular image to the attention of many:
The image is from Wikipedia, and the description of the image is as follows:
The sun rises from the mound of creation at the beginning of time. The central circle represents the mound, and the three orange circles are the
sun in different stages of its rising. At the top is the "horizon" hieroglyph with the sun appearing atop it. At either side are the goddesses of the
north and south, pouring out the waters that surround the mound. The eight stick figures are the gods of the Ogdoad, hoeing the soil.
The painting being a depiction of their beliefs of creation seems plausible. However, what if that is completely wrong, or told to us to hide
something? Maybe to hide information about Egyptians studying electrostatics?
Look at the two round objects in the center that are connected by dotted lines... Does it not remind you of an electric field between two unlike
If you are unfamiliar with electric fields, just google "electric fields" and look at the images. Since electric fields are invisible, we often use
paper confetti or other simple tools that easily react to electrostatic to help us see the fields. What if those stick figure men in the image are
holding devices that help them detect and visualize the electric field?
Now look at the two figures holding up jars, and out of the jars are dotted lines, and those dots are surrounding the outside of the circle. Dots
surrounding the outside of objects are a common way to illustrate static electricity. The dots being extra electrons on the surface of objects. For
examples, just google "static electricity" and look at the images. You will often see images of balloons or glass rods with electrons surrounding
them like this:
You are probably wondering about the two jars... and why electrons would be coming out of two jars... unless you are already familiar with "Leyden
Leyden jars were used many years ago to "store" static electricity. They were one of the original capacitors.
The jars could also be "Baghdad Batteries" which many have already been discussing the Egyptians used to electroplate objects.
Now that you see this image, and my quick explanation of it, what do you think?
