59. Eye Of A Needle In The Tomb of Tutankhamun (KV62)

I do not know if there is a similar observation or a published reference that observes an ancient Egyptian reference that directly expresses the biblical aphorism about the 'eye of a needle' through which tents and other could pass.

I have found no such published reference and note it here because the tomb of0Tutankhamun contained (or contains) an explicit reference that expresses the aphorism with no uncertainty.

The reference in ancient Egypt has extensive implications as it indicates a shared root or borrowed aphorism that involves the biblical references with ancient Egypt.

It also has relevance in the tomb that requires more extensive exposition.

So, I note only the basic observation in the following PDF.

60. Neith As "X" and Arrow In The North Wall Mural

I introduced and explained sometime ago in this forum that the red 'X' on the mummy in the mural on north wall in the burial chamber of Tutankhamun represents the goddess Neith.

I also had explained that an obscure arrow (that extends from the red 'X') is composed in the mural.

The following PDF contains my explanation about the red 'X', the nature of its relation to Neith, how and what references give guidance about the constructed reference, and shows a finally rendered image of the arrow.

Also, involvement of the Book of the Dead, chapter 17 and of the ankh-shaped mirror case of Tutankhamun are noted.

Correction For The Preceding Post

60. Neith As "X" and Arrow In The North Wall Mural

The following link should be correct to the PDF.

I posted in (Egyptian Dreams Forum Index -> Miscellaneous -> Crossed Sticks)that mold on the north wall of the burial chamber in the tomb of Tutankhamun is a constructed reference that informs about the presence of the deities Shu (air), Tefnut (moisture), and Nut (water).
Together, they produce mold.

I Posted in (Egyptian Dreams Forum Index -> Pyramids, Tombs, & Monuments -> KV62 West Wall Niche Question ) on (Wed Dec 02, 2020 4:13 pm) that I had observed the image of a man who wears a snake on his head (on the ceiling in the Treasury).
The image had perplexed me because I did not know more about the god Geb.
http://forum.egyptiandreams.co.uk/viewtopic.php?p=82750&highlight=snake+head+geb#82750

Geb and Nut are the son and daughter of Shu and Tefnut.

Fungal mold on the north wall (mural) indicates the presence of Shu, Tefnut and Nut (father, wife, daughter).

Geb (the son) is missing from that collective reference.

I posted (here in this thread) in the preceding post "60. Neith As "X" and Arrow In The North Wall Mural" about the obscure arrow that is in the north wall's mural and also show the arrow.

That arrow points diagonally upward towards the ceiling in the Treasury where I observed the image of Geb (a man who wears upon his head like a hat the head of a snake).

The arrow points toward towards where the final figure (Geb) can be found to complete the family reference of (Shu, Tefnut, Nut and Geb) for the constructed reference.

Geb (earth, ground?) is in the ceiling position because the tomb is in the underworld.

Nut (in the north wall mural) is lower (nearer to ground) because the sky in the underworld is lower than Geb who is above.

The constructed reference of the arrow in the north wall mural points to Geb to reveal this information and it also informs to look to the ceiling in the Treasury where very complex images are composed.

As I also noted (elsewhere in this forum), there is a nearly photographic-quality image of Tutankhamun the person with three or four other individuals who appear to be military guard of some sort.

In the preceding post, I noted that the god Geb (earth, ground) is (to be) recognized in relative position to the goddess Nut (sky?) in the north wall mural in the burial chamber of Tutankhamun.

Geb on ceiling in the Treasury in this relationship is positioned above Nut who is nearer to floor in the burial chamber.

This reverses their positions that are know in the normal world where sky (Nut) is above ground/earth (Geb).

Above - Sky (Nut) - in Normal World
Below - earth (Geb) - in Normal World

Above - earth (Geb) - in underworld
Below - Sky (Nut) - in underworld

This relationship that is exposed in the burial chamber (underworld) provides a context for certain texts to be meaningful.

From the Book of the Dead (Chapter 17) for example:

- "It is the crushing of the two lands by Shu in Henennsut".

- "The Osiris N flies as a falcon, and cackles, He can never perish".

- "The Osiris N is well over the earth in the presence of Ra, with a good mooring in the presence of Osiris".

These three quoted sections from the Book of the Dead (chptr. 17) obviously indicate that the Osiris N (deceased, mummy in the sarcophagus) is in an aerial position as if aloft in the sky.

The sky (Nut) in the underworld (tomb) is near or towards the real ground (floor) of the tomb.


"The Osiris N flies as a falcon" because it is in position of the sky (in the underworld).

"The Osiris N is well over the earth" because earth (Geb) is in the ceiling position above the mummy while more sky is under the mummy in the sarcophagus.

The Osiris N has "a good mooring in the presence of Osiris" because the sarcophagus is anchored on floor of the tomb. Also, in the case of KV62, the mummy was effectively glued into the gold coffin.

Texts such as (BOD 17 - https://www.ucl.ac.uk/museums-static/digitalegypt/literature/religious/bd17.html) appear to by mysteriously cryptic when they are out of context such as when constructed references are not recognized.

In fact, they are reasonably and rationally normal when the correct context is recognized.

Many of the texts are misunderstood in absence of certain constructed references to which they were meant to apply.

A correction to the preceding post:

Where I noted (for [url= https://www.ucl.ac.uk/museums-static/digitalegypt/literature/religious/bd17.html]BOD, chapter 17[/url]) that
"The Osiris N flies as a falcon, and cackles, He can never perish",
should be corrected to read as
"The Osiris N flies as a falcon, and cackles as a goose, He can never perish, like Nehebkau".

Next

Now, what is meant by "It is the crushing of the two lands by Shu in Henennsut"?

This line of the text seems to make no sense if "two lands" is recognized to signify Upper and Lower Egypt being crushed by Shu in Hennensut.

But, if the supposed "two lands" are the Geb in the normal world and Geb in the underworld, then those two lands would conceptually lie between two skies or heavens (of Shu -- air).

Example:

Above - Air (Shu) and Sky (Nut) - in Normal World
Below - earth (Geb) - in Normal World

Above - earth (Geb) - in underworld
Below - Air (Shu) and Sky (Nut) - in underworld


This can be recognized as a representation of the global earth (planet).

Anywhere that a person might be on the planet, the sky (air, Shu) is above them and opposite side of the world (which can be regarded as the 'underworld') is below them where the other land and sky are beneath their feet.

The text, "It is the crushing of the two lands by Shu in Henennsut", is ambiguously significant and in fact holds a key reference about the tomb of Tutankhamun that is to be recognized by references about and from Hennensut (the place).
