1.3 – The Visitors (4.27.10)

CELESTIAL BEINGS [4c]

Egypt. Long before the ancient Egyptians built the pyramids or even settled along the Nile River, they spoke of an era called Tep Zepi, or “The Beginning of Time.” According to the legends, Tep Zepi was when “Sky Gods” descended from the stars to Earth on flying “boats” and then turned mud and water into a new kingdom.

“The word ‘god,’ according to the ancient Egyptian, is ‘netyro.’ It means a being that came from the cosmos. They are very adamant about the fact their gods had descended from the stars. They tell us that the god Osiris, who ruled with his consort and sister – the goddess Isis – they were Star Gods, and in fact they identify them very clearly. Osiris was identified the constellation of Orion. Isis was identified as the god to the star Sirius, the brightest star in the sky. There’s an interesting point about this – is that within the constellation of Orion is the so-called nursery of stars. The stars in our galaxy literally were born in that zone, and it’s really peculiar that the ancient Egyptians insist that the birth of Star Gods are in this constellation. They truly believed – they were very adamant about this – that their origins is in the sky.”

“Something that we see around the world with ancient civilizations is that they had incredible knowledge of the stars, of the planets, of the Heavenly motions. The average person in the ancient world had way more knowledge of what’s going on in the skies than a lot of well-educated people today.”

As ancient Egypt grew into a great civilization, its citizens believed their pharaohs were sons of Osiris and thus, living gods. Artwork and wall carvings depicted them as perfect humans, and while the people worshipped many different gods, the pharaoh stood above them all. This basic Egyptian religious belief remained in force for nearly a thousand years until one pharaoh changed everything. Who was this heretic? His name was Akhenaten, and in every surviving depiction, he is shown with an elongated skull. Who was he? According to Egyptian mythology, he too was descended from the gods who arrived on Earth at the time of Tep Zepi. But why do so many still believe he actually came from the stars? In 1352 BC, Akhenaten ascended to the throne as the tenth pharaoh of the 18th dynasty. Almost immediately, he instituted a series of radical religious changes, including a ban on references to multiple gods.

“It’s a rather strange thing that he would want to do that in one sweep, but he ordered all the, the iconography of previous gods to be removed. He only allowed one emblem, which was a sun emblem, literally a sun disk with curious arms of rays pointing down.”

“Why did he do this? Because according to his writings and his poems that were written about him later on, he was visited by one of those beings that descended from the sky, who told Akhenaten, ‘This is the way. I am your god.’ ”

– Giorgio A. Tsoukalos

This Sun God was known as Aten. Akhenaten claimed to be a direct descendent of Aten.

“Akhenaten, like any other pharaoh, regarded himself to be divine. He was a god. Not only himself believed to be a god, but the whole nation saw him as a god. Now, the definition of a god is that he was a descendant from these celestial beings.”

(Co-Author, Black Genesis)

During his fourth year as pharaoh, Akhenaten ordered the construction of a new capital city. He called it Amarna and dedicated it to the sun. Akhenaten would spend the next ten years here, during which time he instituted changes in both art and culture, including how he himself would be publicly depicted.

“In Egyptian iconography, Egyptian pharaohs are depicted as these triangular-shaped beings – these broad, strong shoulders and these very skinny waists. Now, we look at leaders today and we know that most leaders don’t have broad shoulders and skinny waists, but it was important to depict the Egyptian kings as having broad shoulders and skinny waists – very, you know – the epitome of what a king ought to look like.”

– Robert R. Cargill, Ph.D. (Biblical Archaeologist, UCLA)

“That’s exactly the opposite with Akhenaten. He shows himself perhaps as he really is…a rather strange look. He had a very mystical look.”

– Robert Bauval (Egyptologist),
(Author, The Egypt Code),
(Author, Secret Chamber Revisited),
(Co-Author, Black Genesis)

“If we take Akhenaten’s statues, for instance, literally, he was a very strange looking character. Sort of combined, some people would say, feminine aspects with masculine aspects, may have had an elongated skull.”

Robert M. Schoch, Ph.D.
(Geologist / Author, Forgotten Civilization)

“The change in royal iconography of Akhenaten showed him as he probably really was, with a misshapen head, with a potbelly, with a sunken chest, as opposed to the idealized iconography of traditional Egyptian artists that showed this big, strong pharaoh.”

– Robert R. Cargill, Ph.D. (Biblical Archaeologist, UCLA)

Akhenaten’s wife, Queen Nefertiti and their children were also depicted as having elongated skulls. So, why were Akhenaten’s and Nefertiti’s heads deformed? Did they suffer from a genetic abnormality or did they deliberately alter their shape? Some believe there could be yet another explanation behind their strange, otherworldly appearance.

“They look like they’re different than other human beings.”

David Childress (Author, Technology of the Gods)

“Is it possible that Akhenaten might have been an extraterrestrial hybrid?”

– Giorgio A. Tsoukalos
(Publisher, Legendary Times Magazine)

“Ancient Alien enthusiasts look at Pharaoh Akhenaten of Egypt and say, ‘Ah, look at that long head. That looks like an alien Grey. That looks like some kind of something that’s nonhuman, some hybrid between something else and something human. Must be evidence of alien interference, alien reproduction with humans.’ Something like that.”

– Robert R. Cargill, Ph.D. (Biblical Archaeologist, UCLA)

“I’ve been to Egypt, and one of the most stunning things about seeing the archaeological remains of ancient Egypt is that one unique pharaoh, Akhenaten.”

– Betty Ann Brown, Ph.D.
(Art Historian, Prof. of Art History, CSU Northridge)

“I mean, he’s got a very narrow, pointy face, high cheekbones, and a very elongated cranium.”

– Giorgio A. Tsoukalos
(Publisher, Legendary Times Magazine)

“The idea that they were either…looking like extraterrestrials, or perhaps had extraterrestrial DNA in them is a credible idea.”

David Childress (Author, Technology of the Gods)

Akhenaten ruled for 17 years. After his reign, Amarna was abandoned, and temples to the sun were destroyed. Images of Akhenaten were deliberately defaced. Ancient Egypt swiftly returned to its old ways, worshipping many gods. Was this a rejection of Akhenaten’s radical religious belief system, or a cover-up of his alien identity?

“There’s been a lot of theories about why. If, I mean, the most extreme is that he somehow had some sort of extraterrestrial connection. If one accepts that conclusion, then it would explain why he was literally put off the reign and, some say put to death.”

– Robert Bauval (Egyptologist),

(Co-Author, Black Genesis)

Some Egyptologists believe Akhenaten was forced to abdicate and flee from Egypt with a group of his loyal followers. In 1907, the actual body of Akhenaten was discovered in Egypt’s Valley of the Kings by a British archaeologist named Edward Ayrton. After unearthing Akhenaten’s mummified remains, he was able to confirm that, indeed, the ancient pharaoh’s skull was misshapen and elongated.

“Some scholars argue that he suffered from some kind of physical abnormality; he suffered from a disorder that caused his face to appear to be long, or his head actually was longer. I think with Akhenaten we’re dealing with a physical deformation that wasn’t corrected by the royal artists. They just depicted him as he was: potbelly, sunken chest, long head.”

– Robert R. Cargill, Ph.D. (Biblical Archaeologist, UCLA)

Akhenaten was succeeded by his son, Tutankhamen, who became the most renowned pharaoh of all time. When his tomb was discovered in 1922 by Howard Carter, Tutankhamen was also found to have an elongated skull. Could he have inherited alien genes from his father? Today, much of Akhenaten’s life still remains a mystery. Did he really change Egypt’s entire belief system because, as some suggest, he was a celestial being? If that’s true, might there be evidence of similar entities coming to Earth? Perhaps more clues can be found thousands of miles away on the other side of the African continent.
