COMMON CREATION STORIES - AN EGYPTIAN EXAMPLE
For scholarly mythologists and laymen with interests for comparative
Creation Stories, there can be no doubts that these creation stories
are very much alike all over the world.
This fact is even more clear to me because I'm totally convinced of
the connection between these myths and there cosmological origin.
- The Ancient People knew of a basic elementary state where the
elements, their qualities and their interaction, even on the large
In the following I'll describe, as an example of all stories of
creation, how the creation has been described in Egyptian mythology
from the very elementary stage to the first firm creation in our
Milky Way galaxy.
The Egyptian knowledge of the Primeval Elements:
"The eight deities were arranged in four female-male pairs:
The females were associated with snakes and the males were
associated with frogs.
Apart from their gender, there was little to distinguish the female
goddess from the male god in a pair; indeed, the names of the
females are merely the female forms of the male name and vice versa.
Essentially, each pair represents the female and male aspect of one
of four concepts, namely the primordial waters (Naunet and Nu), air
or invisibility (Amunet and Amun), darkness (Kauket and Kuk), and
eternity or infinite space (Hauhet and Huh).
Together the four concepts represent the primal, fundamental state
of the beginning, they are what always was. In the myth, however,
their interaction ultimately proved to be unbalanced, resulting in
the arising of a new entity. When the entity opened, it revealed
the fiery sun, inside. After a long interval of rest, Ra, together
with the other deities, created all other things".
AD: Here the 4 basic stages and elementary concepts are described
together with their complementary qualities, talking of 8 deities in
total. "Deities" shall of course here be read as "creative forces in
their basic stages". We are not talking of religion here, but of
real astrophysics and cosmology.
When the 4 concepts and their elements begin to interact, they
create "a fiery sun" as the first entity. This statement cannot be
fully understood unless one clearly have in mind that we are talking
of the primeval stages before anything was created in our Milky Way.
Therefore Ra cannot be the sun in our solar system, but the first
great fiery light inside the Milky Way centre, the first nuclear
formation that lit up all the gas and particles That is: Ra sets all
things in motion via the 4 basic concepts and the 4 basis elements.
- After this initial "male force creational process", of the
primeval concepts and elements and of Ra, another qualitative
creation force takes over, namely the female creational principle of
sorting and lumping the molecular gas and particles together in
larger spheres of gas and matter that becomes stars and planets.
That is: The creation of stars and planets in our galaxy happen in
the Milky Way centre from where the stars and planets moves out via
the barred structure in the Milky Way and further out in the
galactic arms, giving origin to the allegorical story of "The
Expulsion from the Garden of Eden".
When the lumping of large spheres of gas and particles reaches a
critical mass in the swirling galactic centre, the stars and planets
are born directly and perpendicularly on the rotation plane and out
of the Milky Way centre, mythologically named "The Cosmic Womb".
The Ogdoad Egg variant
"One version of the myth has the entity arising from the waters
after the interaction as a mound of dirt. In the myth an egg was
laid upon this mound by a celestial bird. The egg contained
In some variants, the egg is laid by a cosmic
However, the egg was also said to have been a gift from Thoth, and
laid by an
the bird with which he was associated".
AD: The "mound of dirt" represents the first firm formation of
particles, also mythologically known as "The Primeval Mound".
The Ogdoad Lotus variant
had become assimilated into Ra as Atum-Ra, the belief that
Atum emerged from a
bud, in the
cosmogony, was adopted and attached to Ra. The lotus was said to
have arisen from the waters after the explosive interaction as a
bud, which floated on the surface, and slowly opened its petals to
reveal the beetle,
inside. Khepri, an aspect of Ra representing the rising sun,
immediately turns into a weeping boy –
whose tears form the creatures of the earth".
AD: Again Ra is not "the rising sun". "Khepri" represents the
creation and re-creation and as such a circuit of formation in our
galaxy. This can only be cosmologically fully understood if
accepting electromagnetic circuits as the primary force of creation
in our galaxy and elsewhere in the Universe. It is of course the
very same principles that create and recreate all living things on
The Egyptian Goddess Hathor:
"Hathor, along with the goddess
was associated with the
during the third millennium B.C. when, during the fall and spring
equinoxes, it aligned over and touched the earth where the sun rose
The four legs of the celestial cow represented Nut or Hathor could,
in one account, be seen as the pillars on which the sky was
supported with the stars on their bellies constituting the Milky Way
on which the
of Ra, representing the sun, sailed.
The vaulting Milky Way crescent contours
AD: Here there are no doubts: Hathor (and Nut) and other major
female deities from all over the world are closely connected to the
Milky Way - and therefore Ra of course also is connected to the
Milky Way and the Creation Story. Again Ra is also here falsely
connected to "the sun" but then again: "The Celestial Barque", that
usually by scholars is irritatingly connected to the sun and "a
horse pulling the sun", is here correctly connected to the contours
of the Milky Way, a both manlike and ship-look alike figure
structure that can be observed revolving around the celestial pole,
"sailing around on the Heavens".
"Hathor is commonly depicted as a cow goddess with head horns in
which is set a sun disk with
Twin feathers are also sometimes shown in later periods as well as a
Hathor may be the cow goddess who is depicted from an early date on
and on a stone urn dating from the 1st dynasty that suggests a role
as sky-goddess and a relationship to Horus who, as a sun god, is
"housed" in her."
AD: Again there are some interpretative confusions: Hathor does not
wear a headdress connected to the "sun disc", but to the galactic
disc. And Horus is not a solar deity, but as a child of the Milky
Way goddess Hathor, he is clearly connected to the Milky Way as
"The Milky Way was seen as a waterway in the heavens, sailed upon by
both the sun deity and the moon, leading the ancient
to describe it as The
in the Sky.
Due to this, and the name mehturt, she was identified as
responsible for the yearly inundation of the Nile. Another
consequence of this name is that she was seen as a herald of
imminent birth, as when the
breaks and floods its waters, it is a medical indicator that the
child is due to be born extremely soon.
Another interpretation of the Milky Way was that it was the primal
the protector of Egypt who was closely associated with Hathor and
other early deities among the various aspects of the great
Hathor also was favoured as a protector in desert regions (see
AD: The location of the Milky Way centre (marked as a swirl on the
atlas above) and the location of the womb on the female figure is
If looking at a star atlas, one can clearly imagine how the southern
hemisphere Milky Way contours looks like a great woman and a great
goddess in the night sky, vaulting over the heaven. (The Egyptians
also mention this imagery as a Cow, as with the mythological cow of
creation, Audhumbla, in the Norse mythology).
These explanations conclude the mythological part of the common
creation stories. Most creation myths from all over the world deal
with the primeval elements and concepts that create the physical
world and everything in it. These primeval elements and concepts are
named as deities of both human and animal characters in order to
describe the qualitative forces of creation.
CREATION MYTHS COMPARED TO MODERN COSMOLOGY
Where most creation myths are telling of a beginning, these myths
have no ending. The creation is eternal and for ever changing in
cycles. The mythological term, "in the beginning" shall not be taken
literary but as a "telling technique" in order to describe the
elementary stages and conditions that create all physical matter and
The modern hypothesis of "Big Bang" is very far away from the
basical mythological ideas of creation and it lacks all kind of the
dynamics that really are described in the myths, and in many cases
the modern cosmological explanations are very contradictive to the
different hypothesis themselves. In many cases modern observations
are interpreted into ideas that are based on strange assumptions
because of the lack of a cyclic view of the universal order.
- Whereas the creations myths are talking of a dynamic creation of
our Milky Way as a result of dynamic primeval elements and concepts
that create "a fiery light" in the centre of our Milky Way, from
where our solar system is created and transported out in the
galactic arms, modern science is talking of "a molecular cloud that
suddenly decides to collapse" by shear "gravitational condensation"
and later expansion, when gravity itself collapses, creates the sun;
planets and moons.
"Gravity" has a huge impact on the modern cosmological science, but
it is very inconsistent. The assumed gravity forces do not work
similar in the solar system and in our galaxy. When the cosmologists
discovered that the stars in our galaxy did not follow the laws of
orbit around a gravitational centre, they invented "dark matter"
instead of interpreting the movement of the stars differently.
It is very obviously to recognize the real movements in our galaxy.
Focusing on the galactic look itself, the 2 galactic bars shows that
there cannot be a huge gravitational force in the middle of our
galaxy. If the assumption is that everything are sucked into the
galactic hole, this idea can immediately be binned because a
swirling galactic arm cannot take a 90 degree suddenly turn into the
barred structure and further into the galactic centre.
Imagine a swirling centre in a 3 D spherical cell-like circuit of
formation. Molecular gas and particles are sucked into the centre
where it are sorted out; heated up and melted together in "a fiery
light" as described in the myth above, then we are talking of
nuclear formation in a big scale, and where there is light, there
also is electromagnetism and consequently therefore also a magnetic
and plasmatic circuit.
When the nuclear formation creates larger spheres of gas and matter
inside the galactic centre, these sphere are gently slung out in the
galactic circuit when they reaches a critical mass, forming new
minigalaxies, globular clusters, stars, planets, moon and other
minor objects. That is: The formation of our solar system was
created inside the galactic centre and not via a local cloud of gas
and particles as the scientific hypothesis claims. The direct
connection of the solar system orbiting the galactic centre also
confirms this explanation.
A comparison between ancient and modern perception of formation, the
creation myths are more detailed than the modern one where just on
force of "gravity" is at play. In modern science there is just one
"gravity-deity" and one overall concept, where the Egyptian Ogdoad
explanation above operates with 8 basical concepts of elementary
formation. The modern description of the cosmos are more and merely
just observations and the cosmology are based on assumptions and
some very wrongs indeed. Besides this modern cosmology just adds
black forces and matter that isn't there and cannot be found.
Sometime it is just black magic.
If one should translate and compare the ancient 8 concepts to modern
terms and dynamics, they surely would include: Thermodynamics,
hydrodynamics, atmospheric dynamics, electrodynamics,
magnetodynamics, magnetohydrodynamics and nuclear dynamics and maybe
some more dynamics that includes a mix up of these forces.
Conclusion: Modern science has much to learn from the ancient
stories of creation, most of all that there is no beginning - no Big
Bang - and no ending, no Big Crunch - the movements in the Universe
are eternal and everything is for ever changing in the Universe, as
stated for instants in the Norse Mythology in the story of Ragnarok,
where everything undergoes an eternal change, inclusive the deities
that represent the largest celestial objects, allegorically being
named as superior deities of both gender and names as animal beings
of all kinds - and sometime as anthropomorphic beings, also of all
