Ancient Signs

The Alphabet & the Origins of Writing

My new print & ebook
shows that modern alphabets are based on ancient alphabets rooted in syllabic scripts of the ancient world (Sumer, Egypt, Iran, Anatolia, Crete, Cyprus)

The Heavenly Triangulation Square

The White Horse at Uffington
(but this may not originally have been a horse,
as Dendera, e.g. shows a Jackal - the tail is too long for a horse and the legs are too short- and it may have been "the Fox" according to Al Biruni, or the lizard, Lacerta)

 Pegasus is mainly known by its four corner stars.
Pegasus is a constellation of interest
for understanding ancient hermetic survey
of heaven and earth.

Peter Tompkins
in his Secrets of the Great Pyramid,
Galahad Books, New York, 1997,

ISBN 0-88365-957-3,
writes at p. 297:

"In the administration of Egypt,
the area between 29° 51' and 30° 06' North
was organized as a special district
which did not belong
either to the list of nomes (provinces)
of Southern Egypt
nor to that of nomes of Northern Egypt."

The hieroglyph for this district is a rectangle
which is either empty or filled with water or fish.

A distinguished Egyptologist,
being at a loss for a better explanation,
has read this hieroglyph as 'fishpond'.
He did not realize that a rectangle,
either empty or filled with water or fish,

is the symbol of the Great Square of Pegasus.

In Hamlet's Mill,
de Santillana and Dechend present illustrations
of this symbolism occurring all over the globe....

There are in the sky four stars which are at a distance
of about 15° from each other
and mark a square with sides that run

according to the celestial meridians or parallels;
these four stars form the Square of Pegasus....

The Square of Pegasus was considered as
the starting point in the mapping of the sky
and surely was taken for that reason
as an asterism in the sky by the ancients.

The ancients,
from the Sumerians to the Romans,
in surveying land began
by marking a square of standard dimension
and then proceeded to measure from it
in a checkerboard pattern.

In cuneiform texts the name iku
is given to the basic surveying square,
to a unit of land surface,
and to the Square of Pegasus."


We still may retain the ancient iku as our AC- RE.
