Zep Tepi and the Djed Mystery: The Book of the Dead and Fallen Civilizations—Part II

 [Read Part 1 here]

Chapter XVII of the Egyptian Book of the Dead highlights an indisputable detail: ritual formulas hid proofs of prehistoric events. They were handed down orally, and after millennia they inspired the ancient civilizations, reduced to primeval state by planetary disasters which occurred between 25,000 and 8,000 BC. The ancestral story was told with extraordinary effortlessness, using very simple concepts, but extremely effective.

“It is the drops of blood (61)
which fell from Ra when he went forth (62) to cut himself.
(66) on the day of the combat of the Two Fighters.
It is the day on which Horus fought with (68) Set,}
Thoth did this with his own hand.”
