wikipedia says ramases two was
the pharaoh usually associated with moses. the next reign was by his 13th
son by his second wife. none of the pharaohs who followed had as long a
reign as ramases two. its as if the sed festival regeneration became a
lost art after ramases two. the ramases before him also had short
it looks as though the gp and giza
complex were built after the return of the priest ra ta from exile. his
youth and vitality was then restored. ramases two took advantage of the gp
also. we are not given how long ra ta lived after his return. i
suspect that his return was during the reign of those rulers before ramases
two. he may not have lived long after ramases two took over. the
bones or mummy of ra ta may have been deposited in kv5.
cayce reported that the sons of heth
came out of caanan and removed the pyramidion from the top of the great
pyramid. this was after the exodus of 5500 bce, of course. it was of
gold alloy, and was likely melted down. this theft probably ended
regeneration in the gp. all of humanity was harmed by this crime.
ramases two outlived every person in
egypt, and apparently chose not to share the workings of the gp in the sed
festival. later pharaohs thought that running in a circle after a bull
would give them long life.
the population of cairo has expanded
far to the west across the nile. their homes likely cover ancient
cities. other pyramids and an atlantean city were built between the sphinx
and the nile. the temple of sacrifice and the temple beautiful may be
under these modern structures. much could be learned from the ruins of the
ancient hospital, now under the sands.
when egypt gets a progressive
leadership, perhaps they will begin to remove the sands, or tunnel at giza and
eastward, and uncover more of their wonderful history. most of what we
know comes from manetho, who wrote during the ptolemy era. we need info
from before ramases two, to be sure that history wasnt corrupted.
Ra was a Sun God, no different than
Aten. worship didnt change much after akhenaten, but power was returned to
the temple priests.
