THE TWELVE TACTS
The Twelve TACTs
These are highly speculative theories
about what the research of tomorrow might show.
I am not saying this is right -- it could be.
There is a
of a single language origin
correlates to a large degree
with modern migration theories
related to the spread of agriculture
as confirmed by genetic DNA analysis.
Ancient cultures of this migration
are the Sumerians, Akkadians, Kurgans, Shang, Tocharians,
Hittites, the Sanskrit speakers,
the Indus Valley culture,
Minoans, the megalith cultures
(e.g. Stonehenge), Mycenae, Malta,
Canary Islands, Easter Island, and the Hebrews.
Even the pyramid cultures of Central and South America
may derive from ancient seafaring or ancient migrations
(Olmec hieroglyphs are similar to ancient Chinese,
i.e. Shang, symbols).
In turn, the Maya astronomy and calendar then may
from those roots, being very similar to Pharaonic Egyptian in
notation and in the principle of "hieroglyph-building".
All of these
scripts and languages
-- in our opinion --
will one day be acknowledged
a single common origin.
See my book Ancient Signs.
Indeed, the trend toward
recognition of a world proto-language
will also intensify - thus leading also
to recognition of a world proto-culture.
Indeed, a Nostratic connection from proto-Indo-European and archaic
languages such as Baltic is suggested to the
language of the !Kung
Bushmen in Africa
(Latvian Kungs =
"Sir, man" - surely root of our later term "King"),
validating Richard Leakey's hypothesis
that the Bushmen's communal cooperative
semi-migrant culture led to more modern civilization.
2. SUMERIAN ORIGINS
in the North
The agricultural Sumerians
(as the Hieroglyphic Hittites Lu(t)wians)
were in my opinion proto-Indo-Europeans,
speaking an agglutinative-type of pre-Indo-European,
prior to the development of broad-scale inflection --
similar to the difference we find between agglutinative Estonian
and inflected Latvian, but showing great lexical similarity.
If and when Sumerian became mixed with the Afro-Asiatic
of the old indigenous Canaanite language of the shepherd cultures
of the Fertile Crescent, this led to the Northwest Semitic languages
(such as Akkadian) and to the later Aramaic, both of which were the
lingua francae of the common people in their particular eras.
The most ancient
was the language of the priests
and of the Egyptian "temple" hieroglyphs
(i.e. as opposed to demotic or hieratic)
and this language was arguably pre-proto-Indo-European
viz. Sumerian, viz. Old Kingdom Egyptian
a language which also became very mixed
as a kauderwelsh with
Canaanite (Semitic, Afro-Asiatic) as time progressed.
Note that all of these linguistic terms are of modern origin
and there is no consensus about them.
3. THE SUMERIANS
A small group of these Sumerians or perhaps seafaring northern
as the shaft-tomb culture, migrated southward from the Fertile Crescent
during a period of famine, ultimately winding up in Egypt,
building pyramids there through technology-transfer
from the cultures of the Tigris & Euphrates Rivers,
going from mud-brick to stone construction and
instituting agriculture on the Nile, which ultimately made Egypt
the richest and most powerful country on Earth in ancient times,
sort of an immigrant ancient United States of America, as it were.
4. THE SUMERIANS
The HEBREWS and
were identical to the Biblical Hebrews under the
leadership of Abraham, who first colonized the Nile. His progeny,
starting with Joseph, were the initiators of pyramid-building and
pre-modern centralized government in Egypt
(as is clear from the
Bible and the Nile Sehel Monument).
Hence, there is a chronological error
between Biblical and Pharaonic Egyptian chronology,
as correctly alleged by Sir Isaac Newton in his Chronology
of Ancient Kingdoms more than 200 years ago.
This difference will be reconciled in coming years.
Chronology is vexing and much research is still necessary.
5. THE Old
Testament of the Bible
is for the most part
a historical account of ancient days.
In our opinion,
Old Testament Biblical accounts, events and numbers
are for the large part reflections of true human history.
Scholars have simply interpreted the Bible incorrectly,
and new sources such as the Dead
Sea Scrolls (Qumran)
will (and do) verify that this is so.
The same holds true for Mishnaic
The Dead Sea Scrolls are "more original sources"
than those later used to "write" the Bible
- sources which point even further back, to e.g.
Pharaonic Egyptian and Sumerian and Akkadian forbears
- and which show particularly
the central position of astronomy in ancient religion.
MUST BE REVISED
chronologies are in GREAT disarray
- inter alia, as bristlecone pine analysis substantiates -
caused by the lack of ancient astronomical knowledge
among mainstream academics.
Examples here are the MUL.APIN series
of cuneiform tablets.
is substantially astronomical in orientation.
This papyrus may be reconstructed again,
due to the discovery of missing pieces at the British Museum.
Indeed, the oldest
Dynasties of the Bible,
the oldest Sumerian Lists of Kings
and the Reigns of the Pharaohs of the Old Kingdom,
correspond to astronomical calendric cycles
and heavenly realms of stars,
as measured by
heliacal risings and settings of stars.
The 76 kings of Abydos correspond to 4 x 19 Metonic
of this astronomy extended into mythology.
The 59 kings of Saqqara (Sakkara) (29+29+1)
correspond to the synodic periods of the moon.
76 years was seen as an ancient "kingdom".

- i.e. the tribes had heremetic comparables -
This happened because land was surveyed using astronomy,
"as above, so below" and the Old Testament even tell us
how Jacob divided these heavens among his 12
The ancients did not have astrology the way we do today,
but the heavenly map was used as a guide to mapping earth.
Precursors of ancient Egyptian and Sumerian Akkadian myths
(e.g. Gilgamesh, Agushaya
etc.) are found,
in the Latvian
Indo-European (especially Norse) legends.
7. THE PYRAMIDS
Temples to Astronomy, Not Tombs
were not primarily built as tombs,
as is currently assumed
(such tombs, in fact, shaft-tombs, are at the Valley of Kings,
and other Egyptian locations such as Saqqara for earlier periods).
No original mummies of
have ever been found inside the pyramids.
The pyramids also have no
writings in memory of the alleged deceased,
at a time when hieoglyphic writing was well known.
Massive pyramid tombs and then no writing? It does not add up.
Rather, the pyramids are geodetic
and astronomical temples
(i.e. early churches), used for astronomical calculations,
built by the Sumerians viz. Hebrews viz. Pharaohs.
Perhaps later kings used pre-existing pyramids as tombs later
because they were available - but not originally.
IS Perhaps IN THE
CHEOPS SECRET CHAMBER
of the encrypted copy of the Copper
Scroll found at Qumran,
according to the Mishnayot, maps
in the Valley
I once thought that they perhaps
pointed to the Hall of Records
as being sealed in the Great Pyramids of Giza, something
which could have been inferred from the Westcar Papyrus,
cf. Erman and
Gardiner. However, the chronology does not match.
When the Hebrews left
they must have taken documents with them
which we then have found reproduced and copied
over the centuries as the Dead Sea
including the Copper Scroll.
These Dead Sea communities
arguably represented some of the last of the progeny
of the original real Old Kingdom Pharaonic priests,
as the Hebrew tribes were lost and spread to Europe in the diaspora.
9. OLD KINGDOM
has a proto-Indo-European
viz. Nostratic substratum
language of the Pharaohs of the Old Kingdom in our opinion
had a proto-Indo-European
substrata, very similar to Sumerian,
and to archaic Indo-European languages like Baltic.
The original Indo-European of the Old Kingdom
was replaced increasingly by the Afro-Asiatic Canaanitic language
of the indigenous population of the shepherds.

based on a calendar system originating on December
25, 3117 BC,
the same date as
the start of the Maya and Sanskrit calendar.
Hermetic texts long ago told us that the Egypt below
was built on the
model of the Egypt above.
Egyptologists have erroneously presumed there
were two "earthly" Egypts,
i.e. upper and lower Egypt - on the Nile.
There was only ONE Egypt on Earth - and the OTHER one was the
As found on
Guanche pictographs from the Old Kingdom period, the Pharaoh
was called "Ruler, On Earth, Under Heaven" - the two Egypts. Many
hieroglyphic names of pharaohs mean precisely the same thing.
11. WESTERN CULTURE
TRACES BACK TO EGYPT
such as those of the Lydians and Etruscans
were based on the exile or exodus of persons from Egypt.
(Update: this has recently been confirmed by DNA genetic studies.)
Some of these emigrants carryied on the priestly tradition,
so that the Roman Catholic Church, for example, can be seen as the
spiritual descendant of the first Pharaonic dynasties of priests.
Indeed, all the major modern human religions
are based on the first truly organized and
astronomically based religion
which we see manifested at its apex
in ancient Egypt.
WAS THE SON
OF ANTIOCHUS, THEOS
from the Old Testament
to the New Testament is interesting.
regardless of his "divine identity",
which is here not under discusssion,
was possibly the "human" son Antiochus I of Commagene,
i.e. Antiochus I. Theos,
whose son was either conceived by Elisabeth or
(the nine-months as described in Luke in the Bible)
and hidden among the masses to avoid him being killed
by the Romans or their executors.
Antiochus was the
self-declared "King of Kings" of the royal lines of kings
of BOTH the Greeks and the Persians, tracing his motherly and fatherly
lineage to Darius the Great and Alexander the Great.
Antiochus was the first king to try to unite the religions of
East and West,
and this symbiosis arguably gave rise to what we call Christianity
the first true monotheistic religion
(Akhenaten did not deserve this honor of monotheism at all,
ashe merely replaced lunar worship with solar worship).
then propagated further by Jesus
(who may have had half the identity of John the Baptist,
see Luke and Matthew in the New Testament).
Judas ultimately told the Romans who Jesus was,
and this resulted in his death.

with Nimrod's giant
mound tumulus (as large as the Great Pyramid)
and its actual
still-standing astronomical presentation
of what may be regarded as the astronomical star(s) of Bethlehem
an ancient stone monument.
resulting question of the "identity" of
as an actual "man" of history or as a "divine" son of God
was then battled out
between the Antioch and Alexandria schools of thought,
starting about 200 AD.
may see Jesus as a prophet
or Jesus's divinity as a question of religion,
but as a matter of history, however,
his life as a real "human" is without serious doubt.
