U-Predict, 9/17/2012 – the Disappointment of the Hierophant – The Readers tackle “Did Ancient Egypt have Electricity?”

There is archaeology, and then there is rogue archaeology.  Neither match the romantic idea of Dr. Indiana Jones – archaeology is slow and laborious.  Currently, the most published and televised data supports the ideas that have been around from the last century; the Egyptians were obsessed by the afterlife.  They preserved the bodies of the royalty.  They built massive pyramid-shaped tombs for these royals.  It’s in elementary text books – It was there in the 60’s when I was in elementary school, and it hasn’t changed.

Then there is rogue archaeology.  These are the “crazy like a fox” archaeologists who notice things like “gee they never found a body in the crypts in the pyramids”; and “it would have taken the Egyptians over 2000 years to build the pyramids – not the 20 as recorded in the text books.  Names like Graham Hancock and Carmen Boulter, PhD lead the field.  Regular science is outraged by their theories, and the support they are gathering.  So against this background U-Predict asking an interesting question “Did the ancient Egyptians have electricity?”  Psychics that participated in the Reading Room included:  IvyLieberman, Latifah Abdul'laah (Underland Tarot Musings), Jean Maurie Puhlman, Anita Perez, Elizabeth Dennan, Becky Graywolf (WindLady) ReeNee Cummins, and Dax Carlisle.

The first question was “Did the Egyptians build the pyramids?”  Most of the Reading Room felt that the pyramids were much older – that they were inherited or claimed by the civilization that we think of as the Egyptians. 
The second question was “Does archaeology give us a correct picture about the use of the pyramids?”  The readers indicated that science wanted to keep the whole thing tidy, and to continue down the same line of research, while ignoring things they couldn’t explain.  We had our first Project TAROT moment with The World card; one being upright, the other reversed.  This was Major Arcana proof of what we had been talking about.  One World showed us that we had a complete theory of the civilization; the other showed that there was a whole theory and research yet to be pursued.

The Reading Room turned its attention to the work of Nikola Tesla.  Because Tesla theorized other ways of generating/distributing electricity, many of the rogue archaeologists look to these theories to expand the possibilities that the Egyptian civilization was much more advanced than defined.  The Project TAROT moment came with the Tower card.  There was amusement, as Tesla’s theories utilized towers to distribute electricity.  However, a deeper meaning of the Tower card is a person who truly shakes things up.  Tesla’s theories definitely did that – and now they are being revisited to see if they are more efficient in energy transmission/distribution. 

The next two questions flowed together:  “Were the conditions right to generate electricity with the pyramids 10 – 15,000 years ago?” and “Were electric power tools used to cut monuments in Egypt?”  The Reading Room identified that there was a power source, but that it would not be understood by our level of science.  This would explain why few archaeologists would recognize the technology.  The Reading Room identified that the lasers were used to cut/shape the stones.  Jean Maurie identified the laser tools, and Dax immediately got confirmation with a yes/no spread (5 cards to the yes).  This is one area that the rogue archaeologists focus on – the fact that the stone work from ancient Egypt is so fine and accurate.

At this point Anita Perez called in and talked about some past life work she had done with a group of people.  She had talked about being in a chamber and using the resonance of the chamber and a crystal to amplify energy.  She said that the group of people weren’t sure that they had the proper technique.  ReeNee told the listeners that chambers exactly like those Anita described that had been discovered by Dr. Carmen Boulter.  These chambers had used resonance.  However their actual purpose remains a mystery.
The final two questions:  “Will hard evidence ever arise about advanced ancient civilizations?” and “Does science understand that it is hurting its authenticity with its current theories?”  are best answered by the Project TAROT moment cards for the entire show:  Five of Cups, The World, The Hierophant, and The Lovers.  The Five of Cups is about disappointment.  The rogue archaeologists are disappointed that their ideas are ignored.  Mainstream archaeology faces the disappointment of disappearing funding for expeditions, no support from Middle-Eastern governments to do research, and the destruction of potential sites by desert nomads.  Overall disappointment from a collective consciousness standpoint is that we want to know.  People are interested and are getting more interested in the unexplained artifacts in the world. 

This now refers to The World card.  How would our world change if we had knowledge that there had been an advanced civilization all over the planet that was somehow destroyed?  Would this become a focus of the current civilization – finding out what happened?  Or would most people want not to be bothered with ancient problems or disasters.  The Hierophant represents traditional science.  Science is already dealing with the rejection of evolution by fundamentalist religions; what would be the result if long established facts were overturned in another discipline?

The final card is The Lovers.  This card may appear surprising, but in actuality it makes a lot of sense.  There is a lot of romance about archaeology and ancient cultures.  There also is a lot of romance about a lost civilization and what we could learn from such a discovery.  The Lovers is also a card of choice – which is our true love?  Do we want the next generation of scientists to stick to tradition or are we willing to have them dig deeper and perhaps overturn long cherished beliefs?   U-Predict…
