  • Coffin of Khnumnakht ,ca. 1802–1640 B.C.
The brilliantly painted exterior of the coffin of Khnumnakht, an individual unknown except for his name, displays the multiplicity of texts and decorative panels characteristic of coffin decoration in the late Middle Kingdom. It has at least one feature—the figure of the goddess on the head end—that is rare before the late Middle Kingdom. The figures and hieroglyphs have been drawn by the confident hand of a skilled artist and each hieroglyph has been carefully painted in the prescribed manner of the time and place in which the coffin was made.

On the left side of the coffin box there is an architectural facade with a small doorway in the center at the bottom. This is the equivalent of the Old Kingdom false door, which allowed the spirit of the deceased to move between the land of the dead and the land of the living. In this case, it is painted to resemble two wooden door leaves secured with two door bolts. Above the door are two eyes that look forth into the land of the living. The face of the mummy would have been directly behind this panel. The rest of the exterior is inscribed with invocations to, and recitations by, various primeval deities, particularly those associated with death and rebirth, such as Osiris, foremost god of the dead, and Anubis, god of embalming.

  • Bu Taş 4,6 Milyar Yaşında, Yani Bu Taş Varken Dünya Henüz Oluşumunu Tamamlamamıştı.

28 Eylül 1969’da Murchison, Avustralya’ya toplam ağırlığı 100 kg olan bir göktaşı düştü: Murchison göktaşı. Şu ana kadar en iyi incelenmiş meteorlardan biridir ve özellikle aminoasitler ve pürinler, primidinler (DNA ve RNA’nın yapıtaşı) gibi yaşamın kaynağıyla ilgili çok önemli birçok yapıtaşını barındırır. En sık rastlanılan aminoasitlerden glisin, alanin ve glutamik asidi içermesinin yanı sıra, sık rastlanılmayan “garip” aminoasitleri de barındırmaktadır. 1997’de yapılan bir araştırmada, aminoasitlerin ve pürinlerin, primidinlerin nitrojen ve karbon atomları incelenmiş olup, ender izotoplar keşfedilmiştir; bu sonuç ise bu yapıtaşlarının kesinlikle Dünya ile bir bağlantısının olmayıp, Dünya dışından geldiğini göstermektedir.

Çeşitli meteorlarda ise adenin, guanin, sitozin, timin ve urasilin yanı sıra, bir pürin olan ama DNA’da bulunmayan ksantin de keşfedilmiştir. Bu moleküllerin Dünya dışında oluştuğu belirtilmiştir. [5,6] Dünya dışında oluşmuş bu “garip” moleküller, Miller-Urey Deneyi sayesinde yeniden oluşturulabilmiştir.

  • А знаете ли вы, что медианты (традиционные французские рождественские шоколадные медальоны с орехами и сухофруктами) были названы в честь древних монашеских орденов? И цвета  орешков и фруктов соответствует цветам монашеских ряс... Did you know that mediants (traditional French Christmas chocolate medallions with nuts and dried fruits) were named after the ancient monastic orders? And the colors of nuts and fruits correspond the colors of  monk’s cassocks... #mediants,#chocolate,#медианты,#орешки,#nuts,#and,#fruits,#ancient

  • My origins came from a planet that was not part of this universe. From ancient Mediterranean world, I am fusion between the cosmos and infinity, I command sun and the moon. My cosmic cycle the air condensed into liquid element, my body covered with a new component, the astral one, capable of giving me, “Consciousness". Supernatural and immortal, I can govern over the life and death of all beings on earth. I have paranormal form transcends into "human nature" and therefore I can change into animals, plants and atmospheric conditions. Ascend to begin the "journey" where the "give back for the trip” will have to finally with my state of trance..
