Ideally, each number would occupy four digit-positions.

For example:
Value 5 can be noted in binary as 0101 and rendered here in the images that follow as
..X..O for the left half of the image. Then, right half of the image is produced by mirror symmetry as O..X..

The four images follow here.

01 ......00
02 ....0....0
02 ....0....0
02 ....0....0
05 ..X..00..X

East niche = 1) Egg on a base

02 ....0....0
04 ..0........0
04 ..0........0
04 ..0........0
10 X..0....0..X

North niche = 2) Egg splits open

03 ....0000
06 ..00....00
06 ..00....00
06 ..00....00
15 XX0000XX

West niche = 3) New egg pushes in or through old shell

01 ......00
02 ....0....0
02 ....0....0
02 ....0....0
05 ..X..00..X

South niche = 1) New egg stands on base

The set of four images that is produced is a progressive sequence (a very simple moving image) that demonstrates concept of the 'cosmic' egg.

The digital images are rendered here in format as this platform allows but the images ideally should be rendered in a grid of regular squares.

By this construct, the tomb of Tutankhamun contains a very direct reference to myths about the cosmic egg that is perpetually regenerated.

As observers look at the mural of a funeral procession on east wall of the burial chamber, they in fact are observing a conceptual procession of cosmic time and existence.

Other references in the tomb support this observation but will not be addressed here at this time. I think that traditional interpretation of the east wall mural should be reconsidered because it does not represent the king (Tutankhamun) being taken to burial.

The Bearers

The party of bearers in the mural represents decedents in relative order of their deaths.

The figures in the processional party represent earlier deceased at front and most recently deceased in rear position before the bier.

Decedents conceptually become bearers in the procession. They do not rest on the bier that represents a transitional space or period through which each deceased must pass.

The figure shown on the bier is Osiris (the representation of the conceptual dead).
The king is in transition and not dead. The king is in procession through realm of Osiris. Decedents apparently pass through the bier, having become one with or through Osiris.

The deceased (including the king) are not in or on the bier because it is the place of the dead who are not to live again. It is the place of Osiris. Others are only in transition through the realm of death.

The most recently deceased takes position at end of the line of bearers. This is informative. I will briefly explain.

Identity of Bearers

The group of five bearers in lead position represent generally all predecessor's of Tutankhamun.

The next group of two figures are grandparents of Tutankhamun.
The second group of two figures from front towards rear represents his parents.
The third group is of two figures is bald with no hair to indicate the pair had no children (no royal heir?). It is Tutankhamun and his queen. If is not the mummy on the bier.

The Lone Figure

The lone final figure is particularly interesting because it is in last position and thereby indicated as surviving the preceding bearers including to have survived the death of Tutankhamun.

The lone figure has hair to represent a parent that outlived Tutankhamun.
The figure represents Nefertiti.

(The tomb speaks. Is it understood?)

The egg also simply represent progeny.
The eat wall mural shows a familial lineage into death.

I explained earlier in this thread an informative aspect of the three nested coffins of Tutankhamun as the informative construct demonstrates the maternal lineage that produced Tutankhamun.

The second inner (middle) coffin in that construct represents Nefertiti and the third coffin (inside the second) represents the daughter of Nefertiti who is the mother of Tutankhamun.

Observe in the east wall mural as explained that the parents of Tutankhamun are paired in procession ahead of the two bald figures (that represent the king and queen).

The mother of Tutankhamun is ahead of him in the mural. The lone final figure at end of the procession of bearers is not his mother.

The maternal lineage demonstrated by the coffins informs that Nefertiti (the lone figure in the mural) was the 'unnatural' grandmother of Tutankhamun.

The father of Nefertiti is father of her eldest daughter (who was then both daughter and sister of Nefertiti). That daughter was therefore the sister of Akhenaten (as also was Nefertiti).

Alkhenaten espoused both and fathered Tutankhamun with the daughter-sister of Nefertiti.

The lone figure at end of the procession in the east wall mural is the mother of Tutankhamun's mother.

This is noted to clarify that Nefertiti was grandmother (not mother) of Tutankhamun. The mural apparently indicates that Nefertiti was around longer than anyone had previously thought.

31. Another Function of Obelisks

Another functional aspect of the obelisk object is revealed by its relation to Ra and the sum.

The obelisk because it is related to Ra, to conceptually reflect or represent the sun must also (in concept) move as does Ra and the sun. This is often overlooked.

Ra rises from the horizon) at dawn, proceeds to apex at noon, and descends to set at dusk. The obelisk's tapered shape suggests that it rises from below into the air. If its point reflects the sun then it must be always under the sun.

What conceptually is its status when Ra (the sun) is on or below the horizon?
This helps to reveal a function of the obelisk.

As Ra enters into the underworld, so also does the obelisk. In the underworld, Ra reaches a maximal point that observed from the world above can be regarded as maximal depth.

The obelisk that rises and stands above ground has its conceptual opposite that enters into the ground.

The form that enters the ground is a binary opposite form. The obelisk above ground is solid. Its binary opposite form in the ground is a null (empty) space, a hole.

The obelisk that stands above ground informs about the functional nature and use of obelisks as plugs to close shafts in ancient Egypt.

An obelisk lowered into a negative space of equal shape is virtually (or perhaps actually) seamlessly tight.

This consideration seems to be affirmed by the original ancient Egyptian name for obelisks. The ancient Egyptians called them tekhenu (means "to pierce'). [Ancient Egyptian Encyclopedia. https://www.ancient.eu/Egyptian_Obelisk Acessed: 22 August 2020]

Obelisk have traditionally been considered to pierce the sky. Functionally, they make more practical sense to pierce into the earth.

The obelisks that are not seen or known are inverted into the ground to close shafts and they are not visible.

Here, again, the removal of obelisks from Egypt suggests that informative key references to find many closed shafts most likely have been displaced and permanently lost. It is reasonable to think that the references to locate closed shafts would have been located with and near the erected obelisks that were above ground.

Where "null" is noted in the preceding post, I meant to note that the binary opposite form in the ground is a negative space.

32. Zawyet el-Aryan and Abu Rawash

Having noted the relationship of obelisks to shafts, I will also note that these two sites where pyramids appear to be missing were never intended to have pyramids built upon them.

Information in Khufu's pyramid indicate that both involve shafts with many side chambers. Construction elements that suggest pyramids at the sites appear to be for landmark and other reference as the pyramid of Khufu has guidance that informs about the two sites.

Having found reference at Khufu a few years ago, I checked available information and found that Abu Rawash is indeed on higher ground which seems consistent for a vertical shaft.

Other details at Abu Rawash also appear to be consistent with the guidance obtained at Khufu.

Since different configurations are referenced at Khufu, the two sites likely contain each a different configuration.

I only note this here to inform that such information is at Khufu. Details and explanations quickly become more complex. The guidance at Khufu is not simple. I also did not develop all guidance fully into both sites. The external references appear to agree in briefly preliminary study.

Indications are strongly (with diagrams) that there are two subterranean complexes.
I will not provide more information about the two sites. Khufu appears to be a key reference to both.

32. Directions at pyramid of Khufu

I noted earlier that a function of the boat pits at the pyramid of Khufu is to indicate conceptual process or motion such as the progression of time, cycle around a clock, counting of numbers, et cetera.

I noted that the two boat boat pits on south side of the pyramid that contained each a dismantled boat indicate actual travel that an observer must consider. The boats are references to distant locations.

The reference then requires guidance about directions and distance to travel.

Start References

The causeway approaches to east side of the pyramid where three large boat empty pits are found. These indicate movement around the pyramid (as 3 pits to 3 sides).

The mortuary temple that is centered on east side of the structure marks the start position from which to proceed. The temple on the east side is at center with the vertical indentation in that side of the pyramid. The temple indicates the indentation is a landmark. Each side of the pyramid has a similar indentation.

One of the three large boat pits indicates to proceed around the pyramid from east to south, west, to north. The opposite pit indicates to proceed in opposite order to reach the south side of the pyramid.

On south side of the pyramid was found the two pits with dismantled boats.
On the north side of the pyramid is the entry into the pyramid.

North and South References

The two southern boat pits contained actual boats because they indicate actual physical travel. To where?

First, the physical boats were in boat shaped pits. The pits like the larger pits on the east side are significant of conceptual motion. The pits indicate one thing while the dismantled boats in them indicate something different.

Two South Pits

Like the three eastern pits, the two southern pits indicate to proceed around to two sides of the pyramid (2 pits to 2 sides) from the south position.

One pit indicates to proceed around to east and to north side.
The second indicates oppositely to proceed around to west and to north side.
Both destinations are on north side of the pyramid.
Why?

The Two Boats

On north side of the pyramid is the entry into the pyramid.
Over the entrance are two chevrons that form the double gable above the entry.

The double chevrons are the significant reference that pertain to the southern boat pits.
How?

The double gables (double chevrons form) over the entrance traditionally has not been recognized to be the hieroglyph (Gardiner Aa5) that symbolizes rudder of a boat.

There was little reason to recognize the symbol for rudder of a boat over the entrance to a desert pyramid. Such recognition without a context in which to understand it is perplexing.

The gables kept grabbing my attention for years (since childhood) as I
am certain that they have gotten the attention of other people. I think they were planned to attract attention.

Direction Reference

Consider that a rudder gives direction to a boat.

The southern boat pits indicate to go around to north side of the pyramid where is found a rudder in symbolic form to give direction to the boats that are in the pits.

The actual boats indicate physical travel. The rudder gives the boats a course heading.

The heading for the boats is to north from the north side of the pyramid (to Abu Rawash) and to south from the south side (to Zawyet el-Aryan).

Abu Rawash is site of the "lost pyramid" (of DJedefre, son of Khufu). Reference to DJedefre was found within one of the southern boat pits. (I don't know current status of the second boat sit at this time.)

Zawyet el-Aryan is site of an "unfinished pyramid" that is one of two pyramid references there.

A lost inscription that had supposedly indicated DJedefre leaves no documented relationship of the site to the son of Khufu. Still, indications at Khufu are to this location.

Additional references at Khufu give guidance for distance and to refine course. They involve more intricately complex detail.

This much is noted here only to help anyone who wants to begin to look into the guidance from Khufu to those two sites.

The distance From the pyramid of Khufu to
- Abu Rawash = 8 km (to north). [Wikipedia > Abu Rawash]
- Zawyet el-Aryan = 9.1 km (to south). [Google maps]

These distances are redundantly referenced within several informative constructs in the Khufu pyramid complex. For simplicity, two references are used here for example of how such information occurs at Khufu.

The causeway to the pyramid of Khufu and the perimeter wall that originally surrounded the pyramid are elements that provide distance references.

Tour Egypt online notes the following:
- Average length of each side of the pyramid = 230 m
- distance from side of the pyramid to the perimeter wall = 10 m (10.2 m)
- causeway length = 825 m (per Hawass)
- causeway length = 810 m (per others)
- causeway length = 1 km (per Herodotus), doubted by many scholars
- a turn occurs in causeway at 125 m from valley temple.

[ http://www.touregypt.net/featurestories/greatpyramid4.htm ]!

Base Reference Length

Given the average length of 230 m with an alley of 10 m wide on each side of the pyramid between the pyramid and perimeter wall, a length of 250 m is obtained for basic reference. (10 m) + (230 m) + (10 m) = 250 meters

The pyramid has four sides that are divided into eight sections as previously noted.

Distance to Abu Rawash

- (4 sides) x (250 m) = 1000 m (1 km)
- (1000 m) x (8 sections) = 8000 m (8 km)

The distance to Abu Rawash is 8 km (per Wikipedia).
I use rounded values in these examples but better Sousa references and precision are possible such as to apply 10.2 m instead of 10 m and such.

Distance to Zawyet el-Aryan

The distance from Khufu to Zawyet el-Aryan involves recognition of the following.

125 m is 1/8 of 1 km. This reference suggestively relates the divided sides of the pyramid to the causeway.
125 m is a segment for reference of length.

By this reference, Herodotus might be considered possibly to have been correct that the causeway was a kilometer in length. I am normally cautious when Herodotus is mentioned but the following consideration follows.

A 1 km causeway with a segment of 0.125 km length suggests 1.125 km.
Also, the causeway might actually measure the length of 1.125 km. I did not check lengths of the perimeter walls of the valley and mortuary temple structures. Those perimeter lengths might possibly complement identified length of the proper causeway.

There are other references that redundantly get to the 1125 m length (directly or indirectly). It is the basic length to get to Zawyet el-Aryan.

1.125 km x (8 sections) = 9 km.
Zawyet el-Aryan is 9.1 km from the pyramid of Khufu (per Google map).
Again, a more precise reference is possible. I think the distance is sufficiently demonstrated here but don't know if this Google is direct distance or road distance..

This explanation is overly simplified. There are many complexly involved references with many details to be considered within several informative constructs in the Giza pyramid complex.

These simple examples here demonstrate how some distances are obtained from such constructs.

Observers should not let the great sizes of these constructs distract them from informative aspects that they contain. They are sometimes large to conceal them in plain view much like trees might prevent a person in a forest from seeing the forest.

Information is there before each observer.

The ancient Egyptians put the information for constructs of many millennia where the information would be always available for as long as possible.

The information and guidance is before the observer. Th is important to be cautious with what is found and thought to be ruin because it might complexly be an informative reference and guidance.

32. Consider Air Shafts as Relative Paths

Two air shafts found in the pyramid of Khufu are complex references that have relevance to inform about several different things.

First, I consider that they are a challenge that was constructed to test the technical abilities of any who discovered them.

A certain degree of technical proficiency and ability is required and must be exercised to access the deep interior of the shafts.

The people (or civilization in the course of time) who find the shafts must have developed the ability to reach and look into the long narrow shafts.
It is a test that in our time today was successfully met by using robotics.

Robots were driven into the shafts and returned images of inscriptions. The only way to have looked into the shafts was to destroy the structure or to use some technology. The shafts are a test of our technical advancement.

The test informs us that we are advanced enough in this context that is our ability to access interior of the shafts to see to their ends.

This seems to indicate that we are sufficiently technically developed and advanced for something that prospectively awaits. Perhaps this means we have a necessary level of technical ability to potentially adapt to recognize or understand something that awaits to be found.

Why put writing inside narrow shafts in stone? To challenge and test the abilities of any who might find and seek to explore the shafts.

We today have the knowledge, technology, cooperation and ability to acces interiors of the shafts. But, consider that only gradually through history did our knowledge improve and increase to our recent technical capacity to reach and look into those narrow shafts. We previously did not have that ability for much of our known human history.

Why are the shafts there?
They in one aspect are there to test our civilizational capabilities to master this test.

Also consider that we are informed by the constructed challenge that the ancient Egyptians knowingly constructed the challenge. This suggestively informs they were aware and expected it could be successfully achieved later in time if they did not have the ability themselves to reach and look into the shafts by some means.

If this consideration is valid then it suggests that something more awaits because to conceive, plan and build such a massive test if the technical ability that is tested will not to be applied seems like a waste of resources, time effort and expense.

This suggests that the ability is tested for some prospective application.

Another consideration about the shafts is that they might serve as path or course references.

In this consideration, the shafts inside the pyramid of Khufu for reference can be regarded virtually to extend for each pair in a chamber to meet at a common point in the pyramid.

The pair of shafts in the upper king's chamber (one at north and one at south) would extend to meet at a common point,
The pair of shafts in the lower queen's chamber would be virtually extended to their common point.

This exercise creates in reference an inverted (upside down) pair of chevrons (a double chevron) that is conceptually similar to the double chevron over the entrance in north face of the pyramid.

As noted earlier in this thread, the double chevron can be regarded as a hieroglyphic symbol for rudder of a boat. With this consideration, the double chevron reference suggested by the air shafts can be related to the boats and causeway references that were earlier related in this thread to travel and remote locations to north and south from the pyramid.

The air shafts in conceptual reference would be rotated from vertical to lay in a horizontal plane to serve as relative references for paths along or across the ground. Consider they will be like road lines on a map.

Lengths of the paths and angular turns (in the queen chamber shafts) might be related to lengths and turn that were found in the the causeway and perimeter area around the pyramid.

Those lengths that were related to distances to Abu Rawash and Zawyet el-Aryan might be proportionately applied to extend lengths of the shafts in relative reference.

This is hypothetical. I have not tested angles and lengths of the shafts in relation to references for the two remote locations. Perhaps someone with the measurements might test this hypothesis.

My working hypothesis for the shafts is that the upper shafts of the king's chamber relate to a straight distance and the lower shafts identify a point at which a turn occurs along each straight distance.

I think the shafts will relate to locate remote sites away from the pyramid.

In the back of my mind, something about the references has me thinking that Abu Rawash and Zawyet el-Aryan are not alone but exposed as obvious examples by which to learn to read the references. The air shafts might or might not lead to more.

I don't have access to a proper computer at the moment and cannot test this hypothesis at the moment.

The air shafts are a consideration and their chevron reference suggests to me that they pertaini in reference to the boat references, causeway , and remote sites.
This must be tested.

This consideration of the air shafts is influenced also by the fact that the boat references that indicate to proceed around the pyramid to different sides all terminate at and involve the north and south sides of the structure.

The large boat pits as explained earlier give guidance to proceed from east side of the pyramid around to the north side for one boat pit and in opposite direction to south side for the second boat pit (among the three pits).

The two southern boat pits then both indicated to proceed around to north side of the pyramid. The north and south sides of the structure were thereby brought into reference to be considered.

The southerm boat pits on outside of the perimeter wall are on the south side and the main entrance with a double gable is in the north face of the structure.

These obviously are external elements and references.
(I wonder if there is something in the south face but have not explored it in study.)

The air shafts occur as internal structures on the same sides as the external references.

On north side is found two air shafts (one in the upper chamber and the other in the lower chamber). These two shafts can be related in reference to the double chevrons (gables) over the main entrance..

On the south side, two air shafts are similarly internal and can be related to the two external southern boat pits.

A relationship of two air shafts to two external elements seems to be apparent.
So, this is also accounted to bring the air shafts into consideration with the remote destination references.

I have observed in study of various informative constructs within the tomb of Tutankhamun, the Giza pyramid complex and some others that the constructs often involve mixtures of definite, tangible and abstract references.

Observe with the air shafts references that I noted to relate to the remote site references that a mix of abstract and definite elements (symbolic elements) and references occur and are involved in the proposed construct.

Example of Definite and Abstract at Khufu

The air shafts in each chamber if virtually extended to meet at a common point conceptually form a V shaped reference.

The virtual 'V' shape can be regarded as an upside down chevron (as was explained).
Air shafts of both chambers can be regarded to form two upside down chevrons.

These chevron references are very abstract references that occur only in thought. .
They are not drawn or otherwise tangibly presented to be seen.

At the pyramid of Khufu (properly) are three large north-side boat pits and two south-side boat pits for a total of five boat pits.

Observe that there are five chevron references or elements within the pyramid of Khufu that can be related to the five boat pits as follows.

Chevrons of Stone

The two chevrons (double chevrons or double gable form) over the main portal in north face of the pyramid are definite and tangible forms composed of stone.
These two chevrons can be related to two of the large northern boat pits that are parallel along that side of the pyramid.

Inside the pyramid, the relieving chambers structure (in diagram) is topped by a gable that effectively is another chevron form composed of stone similarly like the stone chevrons over the main entrance.

This third chevron that occurs alone can be related to the first of the three large northern boat pits. The first boat pit is uniquely oriented towards the pyramid unlike the two other boat pits in that group of three. The two other pits are in parallel with north side of the pyramid and also each other..

This first boat pit is exceptional in the group of three large pits because it is differently oriented than the two other pits.

This exceptional characteristic of the first boat pit is reflected or expressed by the isolation of the third chevron of stone at top of the relieving chambers structure.

The large boat pits so far here are observed to relate to the stone chevrons of definite form that occur as gables within the pyramid.

Chevrons of Thought

This here leaves the two southern boat pits to be related to chevron forms or references and the only gable forms that remain are the abstract chevrons that conceptually are formed by the air shafts.

The two southern boat pits are therefore related in reference to the air shafts and the conceptual chevrons that they form.

Consider here also that the air shafts occur on north and south sides of the pyramid as also do the boat references.

Mixed References

So, there are five boat references (pits) and five chevrons.

The group of three large boat pits has one boat pit that is exceptionally oriented.
Three chevron forms of stone are found within the pyramid.
Two of the stone chevrons are together over the main entry to indicate a shared similarity.
One chevron of stone is isolated atop of the relieving chambers to indicate the chevron is somehow exceptional similarly as the exceptional boat pit in the north side group of boat pits.

Finally, the two southern boat pits ioccur n a separate group on south side of the pyramid and they relate to two abstract chevrons that are conceptually formed by the air shafts in cognitive reference only.

The mixing of such types of references in informative ancient Egyptian constructs apparently was normal as I have observed in study.

This is a reason that I note that the constructs are complex.
Many constructs challenge the observer to recognize the references that are involved.
Related references also can be as different as a stone object and an abstract thought.
Also, observers often must identify the aspects of several that are relevant and applicable to both seemingly different references in the construct.

I have observed this to be valid in the Giza complex, in the tomb of Tutankhamun and elsewhere.

This presents a challenge to explain and expose many of the informative constructs of ancient Egypt that I have encountered in study.

It is difficult (I find) to try to explain many of the constructs without having first explained certain fundamental principles, conventions and considerations that are involved.
Failure to establish the fundamental basis to understand the references that might be involved can render an explanation to sound like nonsense.

I often suggest that observers must learn to think like the ancient Egyptians because the mental exercises that some of their constructs involve are not normal in today's world.
I think the boat pits, chevrons and air shaft references effectively help to demonstrate the complex nature of some constructs.

The air shafts also are involved in several other different informative constructs. This demonstration is only one aspect of their complexity.

33. Tutankhamun's Mummy (Gold Mask, Gold Hands, Fingers and toes)

The mummy in tomb of Tutankhamun was found inside a set of three coffins that were explained earlier in this thread as a construct that informs about the maternal lineage that produced Tutankhamun. The coffins represent his mother, her mother and also her mother.

I also noted that the mummy is that of a servant. It represents the king but is not the mummy of the king.

Informative Objects

The mummy was found inside the coffin of gold that represents the mother of Tutankhamun in my understanding of the construct.

Howard Carter's notes (available in website of the Griffith Institute) lists the following among other items he found on the mummy. [ http://www.griffith.ox.ac.uk/discoveringtut ]

Carter no. 256a - Gold mask of the king
Carter no. 256b(1) - Hands of burnished gold
Carter no. 256il - Gold sandals and gold toe and finger stalls

Carter notes position of the hands of gold on card 256-01 as
"Sewn to the outer wrappings of the mummy below mask (256, a)."
He also notes the gold hands as "holding the flagellum (R. Side) and the crozier (L. Side)".

The ten finger stalls and ten toe stalls were each installed onto each finger and toe of the mummy.
