"All is mind"

Simply put, everything is the mental creation of THE ALL. THE ALL being the undefinable "God". 
As a mortal being of flesh and bones, and existing on a lower plane, the true nature of THE ALL or "God" could never be known. It would contradict the meaning of the the two. (THE ALL and the mortal)
However, if we analyze the universe there is much we can decipher about the true nature of things on all levels. It is said then that we are all living in the mind of the infinite ALL and that there exists other universes and other planes of existence. 

<![CDATA[THE 7 PRINCIPLES OF HERMETICISM AS EXPLAINED IN THE KYBALION ]]>Thu, 10 Oct 2013 14:41:50 GMThttp://kemetandkush.com/1/post/2013/10/the-7-principles-of-hermeticism-as-explained-in-the-kybalion.html
Over the past 6 weeks I've been reading the Kybalion. A good friend shared the book with me but you can download it free off http://www.kybalion.org/. They also have Kybalion mugs and T-shirts for sale.(People will sell any damn thing these days.)   Wikipedia explains that this book was written in 1908 by "three initiates". The book has had a profound impact on me and its just 58 pages. The Kybalion states that it was written to be a master-key, in which to unlock the secrets of other esoteric writings, and I feel that for me, it did just that. It's a great place to start reading about Hermetics. Here is a brief outline of the 7 principles that are explained. I'll be going into each of the principles in a bit more detail in the later posts.


PRINCIPLE II: THE PRINCIPLE OF CORRESPONDENCE - As above so below, as below so above.

PRINCIPLE III: THE PRINCIPLE OF VIBRATION - Nothing rests; everything moves; everything vibrates.

PRINCIPLE IV: THE PRINCIPLE OF POLARITY - Everything is dual; everything has poles; everything has its pair of opposites; like and unlike are the same; opposites are identical in nature, but different in degree; all truths are but half-truths; all paradoxes may be reconciled.

PRINCIPLE V: THE PRINCIPLE OF RHYTHM - Everything flows in and out; everything has tides; all things rise and fall; the pendulum-swing manifests in everything; the measure of the swing to the right, is the measure of the swing to the left; rhythm compensates.

PRINCIPLE VI: THE PRINCIPLE OF CAUSE AND EFFECT - Every cause has its effect; every effect has its cause; everything happens according to law; chance is but a name for law not recognized; there are many planes of causation, but nothing escapes the law.

PRINCIPLE VII: THE PRINCIPLE OF GENDER - Gender is in everything; everything has its masculine and feminine principles; gender manifests on planes.

N,N-Dimethyltryptamine (DMT or
N,N-DMT) is a psychedelic compound of the tryptamine family, and it is produced naturally in most plants and mammals. According to researchers like Dr. Rick Strassman, DMT is released upon birth, death, and every night when we dream. During heavy R.E.M. sleep, the Pineal Gland floods the brain with what is allegedly the most powerful psychotropic known to man. Strassman refers to DMT as the "god molecule" or "spirit molecule" due to many users claiming of contacting non-human or god-like beings under the alkaloid's influence. In the 1980's, Strassman worked tirelessly to get a hallucinogenic study government approved. During the project's five years, he administered approximately 400 doses of DMT to 60 human volunteers. Of the 60 human volunteers who've ingested DMT under Strassman's watch, more than half reported similar experiences. These experiences ranged from profound encounters/interaction with non-human beings to observing highly detailed, self-transforming geometric patterns and other things of similar nature. This research took place at the University of New Mexico's School of Medicine in Albuquerque, New Mexico where he was then tenured Associate Professor of Psychiatry. Dr. Strassman has conjectured that when a person is approaching death or possibly when in a dream state, the pineal gland releases DMT in a relatively large amount, accounting for much of the imagery reported by survivors of near-death experiences

Some believe it is the silver tether to the Source the ancients spoke about...a tie to the Divine...but what is it really? 

Is it just a chemical that produces certain brain activities mimicking a "God experience" or does it shift your frequency and transcend your consciousness to a different dimension altogether?

More and more findings in  psychotropic studies are coming to light recently, but we still have no clue what DMT truly is. Clearly, more research must done in this both scientifically and metaphysically in order to fully grasp the scope of this fascinating molecule.

Today the internet was thick with articles about the findings posted in May from Open University and University of Manchester's study of the Gerzeh beads. The Gerzeh beads were found in 1911 by Egyptologist Gerald Averay Wainwright and are said to be dated around 3300BC. 271 graves, other artifacts, and a total of 9 of these meteorite beads were found at the Gerzeh site.  Professors Philip Withers and Diane Johnson's team of researchers broke down the composition of the beads and discovered that they had the identifying Widmanstatten pattern, characteristic of meteorites. The beads show signs that they were first pounded flat, then rolled to bead form. Those with knowledge of iron working know this is no simple task. With the "Iron Age" of man commonly placed around 1200BC these beads are making some people scratch their heads. It appears that this alien iron was worked 2,000 years before we were supposed to be doing that kind of thing.

<![CDATA[WHERE WE GOING RA? - WHAT'S THE SCIENCE BEHIND THE SOLAR APEX?]]>Mon, 19 Aug 2013 19:23:44 GMThttp://kemetandkush.com/1/post/2013/08/where-we-going-ra-whats-the-science-behind-the-solar-apex.html
There is a motion to our Sun and the planets that it carries with it. Not only are we spinning and rotating on this rock around the Sun, the Sun itself is spinning and rotating around the center of the Milky Way galaxy. This is all pretty well known. 

What's not the most common of knowledge is that while all this spinning is going on the Sun is also headed towards something. There is a spot near the star Vega, by the constellations Lyra and Hercules, that we are chasing at an estimated 12 miles per second. This is called the Solar Apex. Another way to look at it is that we are running away from something. The point that we are fleeing from is then naturally called the Solar Antapex, and it is located near the star Zeta Canis Minoris.

This is knowledge remembered by man only recently but may have been known by the ancients. The past 100 years have been more illuminating to our cosmic situation than perhaps the stars themselves. 

so where are we going? I guess somewhere near Vega
<![CDATA[THE "THIRD EYE" AND IT'S MYSTERIES. - WHAT'S THE SCIENCE BEHIND THE PINEAL GLAND?]]>Wed, 14 Aug 2013 18:08:42 GMThttp://kemetandkush.com/1/post/2013/08/the-third-eye-and-its-mysteries-whats-the-science-behind-the-pineal-gland.htmlPicture
The third eye is thought to be the Pineal gland. Medically speaking the Pineal gland is a part of the brain about the size of a grain of rice and roughly shaped like a pine cone. It is known to produce the hormone melatonin and is located in the center of the brain, connecting the 2 sides. Interestingly, as we age, our Pineal gland calcifies with crystalline structures called "Brain Sand." Little is known about brain sand but it is found in humans and animals alike.

The hormone the gland secretes, Melatonin, is thought to regulate sleep patterns, consciousness, and is attributed to our circadian rhythms (roughly the natural rhythms of the Earth's light and seasonal cycles). The production of Melatonin is light sensitive, particularly to the blue spectrum of light, which inhibits its production. Melatonin is also thought to be a powerful antioxidant, a disease fighter, a dictator of mood, and to contain possible anti-aging effects. 

Dr. Rick Strassman has studied the Pineal gland and it's link to natural DMT creation in the brain. (DMT, the spirit molecule, will be covered in more detail on a different Daily Science.) Mystics the world over have claimed the Pineal gland to hold the key to psychic and metaphysical powers. The initiate Rene Descartes is quoted as saying that the Pineal gland is the "principal seat of the soul." The ancient Egyptian (Kemet) symbol of the Eye of Horus is thought to have a striking resemblance to the surrounding area encompassing the Pineal gland. It is positioned at the exact point of the anja chakra according to the Hindu tradition. The Ajna Chakra is considered the eye of intuition and intellect. 

Through meditation and the letting in light, it is thought that one can alter their Pineal gland performance and tap into abilities once thought the stuff of fairy-tails.  

<![CDATA[THE NAME OF GOD AND THE FIBONACCI SEQUENCE]]>Mon, 12 Aug 2013 20:00:04 GMThttp://kemetandkush.com/1/post/2013/08/the-name-of-god-and-the-fibonacci-sequence.html
Yesterday we were pouring over the mysteries of the Sigillum Dei Aemeth and happened upon an interesting connection. The Sigillum Dei Aemeth is known as the seal of God. It is made of 2 circles, a pentagram and 3 heptagons. The seal was made by the initiate Dr. John Dee and is circle by 72 latin letters, the sum of these letter making up the Shemhamephorasch. 

The Shemhamephorasch is the name of God, the full and proper name, not the 4 letter name which should never be spoken. The name itself derives from Exodus 14: 19-21, three verses each composed of 72 letters. The 3 verses together making the whole 216 letter name of God. 

Here's where it gets really interesting. The letters of the Hebrew alphabet are broken down to corresponding numbers using the boustrophedon form. The boustrophedon form of God's name is then as follows:

1 1 2 3 5 8 4 3 7 1 8 9 8 8 7 6 4 1 5 6 2 8 1 9 2 2 4 6 1 7 8 6 5 2 7 9 7 7 5 3 8 2 1 3 4 7 2 9 3 3 6 9 6 6 3 9 3 3 6 9 6 6 3 9 3 3 6 9 6 6 3 9 4 4 8 3 2 5 7 3 1 4 5 9 5 5 1 6 7 4 2 6 8 5 4 9 5 5 1 6 7 4 2 6 8 5 4 9 4 4 8 3 2 5 7 3 1 4 5 9 6 6 3 9 3 3 6 9 6 6 3 9 3 3 6 9 6 6 3 9 3 3 6 9 7 7 5 3 8 2 1 3 4 7 2 9 2 2 4 6 1 7 8 6 5 2 7 9 8 8 7 6 4 1 5 6 2 8 1 9 1 1 2 3 5 8 4 3 7 1 8 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9

Those familiar with the Fibonacci sequence will immediately find the first 6 numbers familiar (1,1,2,3,5,8),  but the sequence doesn't end there! 

The next number in the fibonacci sequence is 13. 1+3 = 4. 

1 1 2 3 5 8 4 3 7...

Then 21,    2+1=3

1 1 2 3 5 8 4 3 7...

Then 34,   3+4=7

1 1 2 3 5 8 4 3 7 ....

This pattern repeats the whole way down the sequence of God's name. Kind of freaky if you ask me. The name of god then is the Fibonacci sequence. Do you see how god is all around you now?

<![CDATA["THE EYES ARE THE WINDOWS TO THE SOUL." - WHAT'S THE SCIENCE BEHIND THE "FOLLOWING EYE" IN some ANCIENT EGYPTIAN STATUARY?]]>Fri, 09 Aug 2013 20:25:52 GMThttp://kemetandkush.com/1/post/2013/08/the-eyes-are-the-windows-to-the-soul-whats-the-science-behind-the-following-eye-in-some-ancient-egyptian-statuary.htmlPicture
For those who haven't heard, there are a few remaining examples of ancient egyptian statuary that do something very rare. They stare at you, no matter where you are. Commonly referred to as the "following eye", the eyes on these statues reflect back light with an uncanny realism and even appear to move their line of site as the viewer moves around them. 

In November Professor Jay Enoch from the UC Berkeley School of Optometry and team of egyptologists were given access to study this phenomena and their findings may have presented more questions than answers. 

The statues with these characteristics are reported to date back between 2700BC - 2100BC. Some of the earliest of any civilizations on Earth. However, the level of detail used in making the eyes imply a surgical understanding of optometry.  They appear to be masters of the craft even by the earliest of artifacts, suggesting that there may have been many earlier examples of the eyes that have been lost to time.

"The composition of these eyes is a lens of polished rock crystal (either alpha silica or fused silica, formerly known as cystalline quartz and fused quartz which had a convex front surface and a near hemispherical concave ground pupil surface in a flat iris plane (normally covered with resin) at the rear of the lens. The white of the eye (the sclera) was carved/ground in white limestone, cloudy or translucent quartz, or marble, some of the latter contained impurities which simulate the conjunctive capillaries of the eye. These are set into the statue in copper (early forms)or bronze (late form) structures which simulate painted eyelids. they are said to sweep back to form a retina-like surface.  Resins sometimes partially or fully obscure the pupillary aperture. This type of eye structure is known as a form of “schematic eye”. The structures of these eyes indicate at a minimum a very advanced understanding of the anatomy of the eye for that time. With the exception of the statue of Mitri (Fifth Dynasty - Picture at Right), the eyes are well suited to the facial structures of the statues and Mitri’s eyes may represent a medical condition with which he was afflicted or a stylistic change."


"Dr. Enoch noted that Late Period lenses found by Flinders Petrie at Tanis are simply not in the same class as these much earlier examples." It seems then that the earlier peoples were MORE skilled and had MORE knowledge compared with those in later times.  

"Could the lens technology have been imported from elsewhere and adapted to Egyptian stone working techniques or were the eye structures themselves imports?"

What happen to the knowledge from from 2700BC to now? 

The eyes are made with precision to within a TENTH of a MILLIMETER!!

 Weren't these people just coming out of the caves? 

Remember that the Great Pyramid at Giza is dated to the around the time of this optical statuary apex.  

Indeed more questions than answers... 

<![CDATA["As above, so below"--an introduction in hermetic science]]>Wed, 07 Aug 2013 20:14:06 GMThttp://kemetandkush.com/1/post/2013/08/as-above-so-below-an-introduction-in-hermetic-science.htmlPicture
The Ancient Science Of Hermes/Thoth
  The Hermetic tradition is based primarily upon pseudepigraphical writings attributed to Hermes Trismegistus, ("Thrice Great") AKA Thoth. He is a cosmic deity with whom the magician could identify. In the Corpus Hermeticum, Trismegistus is usually envisaged as a sage who lived in a remote period, conversing with the deities, though they also speak of him as a divine being. Hermes Trismegistus was thought of as hovering between the divine and human world, which, being a mediator, was an advantage. The Hermetic writings have greatly influenced the Western esoteric tradition and were considered to be of great importance during both the Renaissance and the Reformation. The tradition claims descent from a prisca theologia, a doctrine which affirms that a single, true theology exists which is present in all religions and was given by God to man in antiquity. Incidentally  Thoth/Hermes believed in Reincarnation and also had a large part in the evolution of Atlantis and then later Kemet.(see previous post)

"As Above, So Below"
  This phrase comes from the beginning of The Emerald Tablet, written by Hermes Trismegistus, and embraces the entire system of traditional and modern Magik which was inscribed upon the tablet in cryptic wording.. The significance of this phrase is that it is believed to hold the key to all mysteries. So what does it mean?  The microcosm is oneself, and the macrocosm is the universe. The macrocosm is as the microcosm, and vice versa; within each lies the other, and through understanding one you can understand the other. The primary idea behind this is that the “above” refers to what is visible in the sky. The below, refers to Earth. This concept also affects various levels of reality: physical, emotional, and mental. What happens on any level happens on every other.

The Ouro (tail) boros (eating) (He who eats the tail) goes back to the Egyptians and possibly further back to Babylon or Sumer. Greece, China, India, Japan, the Middle East, Romans, and Native Americans have all had some form of art that represented this symbol. Freemasons and other theosophical societies often reference it as well. The double Ouroboros or symbol for infinity, when flipped vertically, represents the "As Above, So Below" concept as well.  You may also notice the dual intertwined snakes form a double helix DNA strand; Serpent DNA specifically. If the serpent is a biological anthropomorphism of DNA, then we even can attribute the Ouroboros to cycles of DNA change.

There's so much more out there to add on to this idea. As above, below, you will find more information to drag you further down the rabbit hole.

<![CDATA[YOU DON'T HAVE A SOUL, YOU ARE A SOUL. YOU HAVE A BODY...What's the science on reincarnation?]]>Tue, 06 Aug 2013 20:26:26 GMThttp://kemetandkush.com/1/post/2013/08/you-dont-have-a-soul-you-are-a-soul-you-have-a-bodywhats-the-science-on-reincarnation.html
Reincarnation is an old idea. The science behind it has logic, I guess. I struggled with the concept of my consciousness coming back as another form. My body mass(=energy) decaying slowly and getting absorbed in the soil. Ashes to ashes, dust to dust. The soil gives life to microbes. The microbes then absorbed by the plant and so on. Is this when I lived as a plant then? I didn't get it. 
Then a friend put me on to Edgar Cayce. It was actually because I wanted a different perspective on the historical Atlantis that I read through his readings. My perspective has certainly never been the same. Has your soul lived forever? What's the science on reincarnation?
