The Nile river is the longest river in the world with its 6,853 km (4,258 miles). It is a river that is shared by eleven countries but it is Egypt where it has left its mark. There is more to the Nile river than you might think.
What would you think if I told you that there is a slight possibility that the River Nile is not just a river, but, in a way, a monument? You would ask for evidence and proof. Well here is what we have researched about this idea.
What makes the Nile so important and stand out from the rest? Well, there are actually quite a few things that make this river incredibly interesting. The Nile is distinctively vertical (longitudinal), and it is the only notable river on this planet to flow directly northward. For starters that’s really interesting, isn’t it? The Nile begins at the equator and disintegrates precisely at 30°N latitude, marked by Egypt’s capital Cairo and Giza, the home of the great pyramids and the Sphinx, coincidence? The generally straight Nile makes a dramatic turn southward near the halfway point. The northern peak of this remarkable bend – sometimes referred to as the ‘Great Bend’ – pinpoints latitude 19.5°N. The significance that it pinpoints latitude 19.5°N comes from the fact that 19.5° is considered a “tetrahedral constant“, deriving from the geometric configuration of a circumscribed tetrahedron shown below.
At the Pyramids of Giza, we have more interesting facts. In terms of the ‘hyperdimensional physics,’ the angle represented at the Giza Plateau is an inter-dimensional ‘gateway’ of some sort, a place traditionally signifying a ‘gateway’ (Rostau) – in that their layout prominently produces this very angle.
At this point, the numbers that we are talking about get really interesting. The Nile Rivers Bend peak is at 33.0°E and we know from earlier articles that we have published that the number three, or in this case thirty-three seems to be a very important number. Indeed, 19.5 and 33 are said to be the two ‘ritual numbers’ repeatedly encoded into various aspects of NASA space missions. For example the Apollo 11 Moon Landing:
Apollo 11 had landed at a specific day and a specific time where the three belt stars of Orion were on the horizon. At that time exactly 33 minutes after landing, Buzz Aldrin, the second man to walk on the Moon, a 33 Degree Scottish Rite Freemason was, in fact, performing a ceremony on board the lunar module with Neil Armstrong.
But there’s more to it, in 1997 when the Pathfinder landed on Mars it actually touched down on the red planet almost exactly at 19.5°N. 33°W. The lander in design was tetrahedral in shape and it landed on the tetrahedral latitude, according to our research, at the moment the Landers actually touched down on Mars, Planet Earth was positioned 19.5° above the eastern Martian horizon as seen from the landing site.
Mike Bara, Hoagland’s right-hand man at the Enterprise Mission wrote:
Pathfinder’s unique tetrahedral spacecraft design geometry, coupled with the totally “recursive” tetrahedral geometry of the landing site itself, was obviously intended by NASA “ritualists” behind the scenes to celebrate – on their first return to Mars in over twenty years – the two key Hyperdimensional numbers underlying all the NASA rituals – “19.5” and “33”
Is there something more to the Nile River and these strange numbers? Is it a coincidence the latitudinal length of the Nile is almost exactly 30 degrees. We know that the number thirty is closely attached to the notion of time and is quite important in history. Aaronic priests were dedicated to serving at 30, in part because it was the age when a person reached both physical and mental maturity and could, therefore, handle major responsibilities. John the Baptist, who was of priestly descent began his ministry at age thirty. In the Fall of 26 A.D., at the age of thirty, Christ began to publicly preach the gospel (Luke 3:23). His ministry lasted for three and one-half years. The number thirty can also represent the sacrificial blood of Jesus. He was betrayed by Judas for 30 silver coins. hen Judas flung the ‘blood money’ he was paid back into the temple, the priests did not accept it as an offering but rather decided to buy a potter’s field with it. Though they were not aware of it, what they did was also fulfilling prophecy (verse 13). In 30 A.D. Jesus suffered and shed His precious blood as God’s sacrificial Lamb for the world’s sins. The Dead Sea Scrolls were discovered in caves on the upper northwest shore of the Dead Sea in 1947. Among all the scrolls found over the years, 30 copies of the Psalms have been identified. Joseph, a type of Jesus, was thirty years old when Egypt’s Pharaoh placed him in charge over all that he ruled. King David also, when he began to reign over Israel, was thirty years old (2Samuel 5:4).Abraham was promised that if God found at least thirty righteous people in Sodom and Gomorrah he would not destroy the cities (Genesis 18:30). And the list goes on.
Saturn, traditionally considered the god/planet of time, has an orbital period of ~30 years. One month – the Moon’s orbit around Earth – is approximately 30 days. (In ancient Egypt, each month was exactly 30 days.) The apparent path of the sun in the sky (the ecliptic) is traditionally divided into twelve zodiacal ‘signs’ (Pisces, Aires, Taurus, etc.), 30 degrees each, corresponding to the sun’s movement in two hours. The seb festival of the ancient Egyptians, commemorating the symbolic death/renewal of the king, was held in the 30th year of the reign.
So provided there are a lot of facts that actually prove that the number thirty was, and probably still is very important, in both history and science.
Plutarch, a renowned Greek writer, and biographer had very interesting writing regarding Saturn, the god of time who in Greek mythology was called Chronos. Plutarch, On Isis and Osiris, 363E:
There is also a religious lament sung over Cronus. The lament is for him that is born in the regions of the left, and suffers dissolution in the regions on the right; for the Egyptians believe that the eastern regions are the face of the world, the northern the right, and the southern to the left. The Nile, therefore, which runs from the south and is swallowed up by the sea in the north, is naturally said to have its birth on the left and its dissolution on the right.
Plutarch is actually saying that the Nile River may represent the flow of time. In his writings, he is comparing the rising of Chronos in the south and ending in the north with the Nile River.
In Mythology, there are quite a number of Gods that are associated with both the River Nile and the notion of Time.
- Cronus-Saturn’s otherworldly domain called Ogygia is applicable to the Nile since the river was similarly called ‘Ogygian’ by the ancient Greek writer Aeschylus.
- The Moon, associated with the ‘temporal number’ 30 via its orbital period (30 days), is traditionally identified with the Egyptian god of wisdom called Thoth. Not only was Thoth considered the measurer of time, he was also represented by the ibis, an animal closely associated with the Nile.
- More striking is Osiris, the most revered and complex deity in ancient Egypt, popularly described as the god of the dead.
- Osiris is quite simply the ‘god of the Nile’. This can be established through his traditional identification with Apis and Hapi, both considered to embody the Nile. Osiris was also known as Serapis, a name deriving from Ausar-Hapi, meaning ‘Osiris of the Nile’. We also have Herodotus’ well-known statement: ‘the Nile is the gift of Osiris, but Egypt is the gift of the Nile’.And we find that Osiris, the god of the Nile, is also a god of time not unlike Saturn. Osiris was identified with the Phoenix, the mythical fire-bird of cyclical rebirth and the patron of all time division. In the ancient Egyptian Book of the Dead is found the statement: ‘I am Time and Osiris’.
- In ancient India, the name given to Orion (the celestial form of Osiris) was Kal-Purush, or ‘Time Man’.
- To all intents and purposes, Osiris is the Egyptian version of Cronus-Saturn, the god of time. In confirmation of this, historical epithets of Orion (= Osiris) include ‘Saturnus’ – i.e. Saturn.
A River timeline present at the Nile? The Secrets Of The Nile
According to the author Goro Adachi, (which many researchers have apparently discredited for his work), the big clue comes from Sirius and Orion’s Alnitak, two of the prominent stars from the Great Pyramid’s star-alignment scheme. They happened to produce the angle 19.5° around 2350 BC.
When Sirius was rising at the horizon as viewed from Giza, Alnitak we seen hovering 19.5° above the horizon.
This suggests that the date 2350 BC and the angle/latitude 19.5° are connected. Hence we are encouraged to assign the second anchor date to the Great Bend’s peak at 19.5°.
There are other clues supporting the arrangement – including the fact that the general region of the Great Bend (Nubia/Kush) was once called the ‘Land of the Bow’ (Ta-Seti), which strongly resonates with the ‘Sirian’ nature of the 2350 BC-19.5°N anchor point, because Sirius’ various epithets happen to include ‘Bow Star’ (as well as ‘Arrow Star’).
From the above mentioned, we can establish three things according to Adachi;
- Khartoum at 15.60°N. corresponds precisely to 4000 BC.
- The Atbara-Nile confluence at 17.67°N. corresponds to 3124 BC.
- Giza/Cairo at 30.00°N. corresponds to AD 2093.
The first two dates are incredibly important in history; 4000 BC and c. 3100 BC, should be immediately clear. It was around 4000 BC that the first known civilization called Sumer suddenly rose in Mesopotamia – modern-day Iraq, and the jump-started the rest. The year 4004 BC is the standard Christian date for Adam, the first man, based on the scriptural calculation done by Archbishop James Ussher in the mid-seventeenth century (Annales Veteris Testamenti). In his calculation, Ussher even applied the date 2348 BC to the Great Flood. 4000 BC is the beginning date used in the calendar adopted by Freemasonry – a quasi-esoteric fraternal organization whose enigmatic tradition can be traced back to various ancient cultures, including ancient Egypt. (Remarkably, the highest rank in Scottish Freemasonry is called ‘33rd Degree’ as if in reference to the key Nilotic longitude, 33°E.)
3100 BC, has similar implications: The date coincides with the beginning of ancient Egypt. It was indeed around 3100 BC that King Menes commenced the Dynastic period as he unified Lower Egypt and Upper Egypt – an event known as the ‘Unification of the Two Lands’. The date coincides with what the Mayan calendar calls the ‘Birth of Venus’ (3114 BC), the beginning of the current age. For the Hindus, too, c. 3100 BC was the beginning of the present age called Kali Yuga. So presented here you have extremely important dates, that according to Adachi are extensively connected to the River Nile.
