You might think that since quantum physics is a relatively new branch of science this burgeoning ‘New Science’ philosophy is also new. It is not. These new insights into nature and reality are very old but have been masked by modern attempts to characterize the ancient Egyptian culture and religion as primitive.In fact, the sacred science of the ancient Egyptians, best described as a philosophy of Nature’s principles, inspired the Hebrews, the Greeks, the Romans, and the Christians, which led to the emergence of what we call Western Civilization. But for us, thousands of years later, the founding knowledge of our civilization is all but lost. Yet there have always been a group people who have handed down the secret wisdom and the sacred science of the ancient Egyptians: Kabbalists, Hermeticists, Gnostics, Sufis, Buddhists, and Alchemists. It is secret only in the sense that this wisdom must be understood through esotericism and symbol, and it’s sacred only in the sense that scientific investigation inevitably leads to an understanding of Man and Divinity and a unique knowledge of ‘Self.’
This cosmic and anthropic ‘New Science’ understanding of Man puts forth the same principles that were built into the architecture of Luxor’s Temple of Amun-Mut-Khonsu.
The temple was not about the piety of a man, but our solar legacy as the philosophical ‘Divine Man’ portrayed in the great statues of Ramses – the birth of the sun. The temple was (and is) a form of communication, a lesson, and at its core its builders’ philosophy is carved in stone. Amun, Mut, and Khonsu were not ‘gods’ in the western religious sense, but principles that form and explain the nature of mankind as coherently as such an abstract subject can be explained.
The definition of Man and the story of the human experience were built into the temple architecture.
Physically, the temple describes the structure of man, from the importance of the femur in the creation of blood cells, to the role of the pineal gland in the brain. Spiritually, the temple conveys life’s cosmic drama and Man’s spiritual immortality. Amun was the ‘Hidden One’ or the ‘Invisible One,’ best described today as the western concept of God, omnipotent and omnipresent, or, from a scientific viewpoint, the energy field that pervades all that exists. From the ancient Egyptian point of view, Amun was self-created, the creative power and source for all that exists. Mut, which means ‘mother,’ was Amun’s cosmic wife and the mother of ‘the Son’ Khonsu who represented the King.
However, the Kingship of Khonsu was not a physical kingship but refers to a cosmic (or spiritual) ruler made flesh through the principles of nature. Thus, Khonsu the King represents the essence of mankind – the archetypal ‘Man’ – and essence of all who ever lived, is alive now, and will live in the future. Khonsu, by being associated with Re and Thoth, represented the essence of life’s energy and Man’s wisdom and knowledge, where mankind is a consequence of the universe’s evolution culminating in the physical endowment of the universe’s self-perception. In myth, Khonsu was a lover of games, but was also the principle of healing, conception, and childbirth. Literally, he was ‘the king’s placenta
The Western world view has a long history of separating the physical from the conceptual; the scientific from the religious. So together, spirituality and technology appear contradictory. This contradiction, however, is based on a naïve and exoteric view of ‘spirit’ and ‘technology.
