Imhotep at Xoïs

The plan of the website is straightforward. The images must speak for themselves. They introduce a possibility to interpret the history of ancient Egypt and to consider the evidence of canonical image making, as well as that of a system, namely of the matrix on which the Masterplan of the total Pyramid field was based. It marks the integration of early Egyptian astronomy, geometry, planned architecture, art and writing.

My book, The Constellation of Horus, is based on scientific sources and texts, and it incorporates notes and references, as well as a bibliography. More than five thousand years ago, the inventions and achievements of the ancients had reached an astonishingly high level. Most of the technology on which those civilizations were founded had, by that time, already been brought to perfection. That is evident in Imhotep’s Book of Ordination of the Temple. In his capacity as Hierogrammateus, Imhotep listed the following domains:

Astronomy of the Solar system
Geography of Egypt
Riverbasin of the Nile
Description of the sacred instruments and emblems
Metrology, and all means that serve to worship the divine (see Imhotep, par.98, D.Wildung)

The sacred cosmographical classification of ancient Egypt is hidden behind the following words of Thoth (Hermes Trismegistus): “Or are you ignorant, O Asclepius [Imhotep], that Egypt is the image of heaven? Moreover, it is the dwelling place of heaven and all the forces that are in heaven. If it is proper for us to speak the truth, our land is the temple of the world.”

After many years of investigation, I (re)discovered the true motive behind the overall plan of the Pyramid field of ancient Egypt. The result is the baffling correlation between the nocturnal sky and the Pyramid field. The plan of the Pyramid field equals a part of the star map on earth, as it presents an exact model of the Constellation of Horus. The Masterplan consists of twelve Pyramids, a Pyramid city and three temple cities (Memphis, Letopolis and Heliopolis), built during the reign of the third, fourth and fifth Dynasties. The whole plan correlates with sixteen stars. See Subpage 2: Technical Explanation. For an insight into the reasons why the Pyramids of the sixth and twelfth Dynasties were built, see also Subpage 2: Technical Explanation.

Thus, the enigma of the words of Hermes Trismegistus (Thoth) to Asclepius (Imhotep) has been solved and their meaning is clear. The Masterplan of the Pyramid field was created after the iconographical image of the famous pose of Horus, which, in turn, was based upon the “main outline” of Orion. That image is momentarily known as “smiting the enemy”, yet in my opinion it is the emblem of the worldly power of ancient Egypt. In the course of some 4,000 years, the pose of Horus spread from Egypt to Mesopotamia and Persia, to the Hittites, Assyria, Carthage, Rome, and to Meroë.

Furthermore, the basin of the river Nile with its sixteen famous ancient settlements from the Delta to Denderah correlates with sixteen stars of the constellation Scorpio, which is the constellation of Osiris, corresponding to the sixteen parts of Osiris, as mentioned by Plutarch. (see Subpage 4: The river NILE is the ICONOGRAPHIC IMAGE of the god OSIRIS.)

The intention of my work is to deliver a contribution to a better understanding and further development of insight into the astronomical religion of ancient Egypt.
