The Isis Thesis
Posted on Friday, November 04, 2005 (EST) by Thoth
Written By Judy Kay King, The Isis Thesis is a book that promises to turn the worlds of Science and Egyptology on their respective heads, uniting the two in a way that a few years ago, nobody could have predicted.
Ms King has spent several years using a technique called biosemiotics the biological science of signs and messages in living systems, to study every facet of Egyptology. After years of intensive research, she has arrived at an astonishing conclusion, that there is an undeniable interrelationship between the mythology of ancient Egypt and molecular biology. The Ancient Egyptians were aware of not only bacterial genetics but also molecular biology, cosmology related to string theory, back hole theory and even dark energy.
To put it simply, Egyptian cosmology is mirrored by microbiology to such an extent that it cannot be considered coincidence. The Ancient Egyptians had a deep understanding of science and encoded their scientific knowledge in the Egyptian language; five thousand years later, we have clear evidence that this is the case. Judy King's research has decoded a complex scientific sign system which maps the pathway of a chemical reaction, and provides the key to symbols found in the ancient myths of Sumer, Babylonia, India, and Greece.
Most scholars would agree that the ancient Egyptian texts are written without chronology or storyline essentially, they are dual-signified i.e. they invite a multiplicity of meanings in the same way that biblical texts do.
For a long time, conventional understanding of Ancient Egyptian Hieroglyphs has considered them as being strictly funerary in nature. However, The Isis Thesis suggests that while accepting their funerary guise, encoded in the hieroglyphic symbols themselves is a fully developed science that rivals and in some cases surpasses modern science.
Judy Kay King puts forward the remarkable assertion that the Ancient Egyptians had quite a detailed working knowledge of molecular biology, astrophysics, molecular chemistry, and quantum physics. The Isis Thesis shows how such disciplines were hidden for thousands of years, waiting for their secrets to be unlocked.
The book takes areas such as microbiology and genetics and uses semiotics (the theoretical framework for the study of the meaning of language, signs and symbols) to explore these areas from a modern standpoint and then through the perspective of the Ancient Egyptians, explaining how these areas were incorporated into the ancient texts.
Ms King covers a wide range of scientific understanding in her research. One element she looks at is the force fields that celestial and solar magnetism create, examining how charged particles (ions) that magnetism attracts were understood in ancient Egypt. Symbolically, she reveals, these forces represented the ultimate form of transportation, the solar boat that carried the dead Pharaoh's eternal being to the afterlife. The magnetic fields performed in a manner not unlike those of the interactions between a unique virus called Phage Lambda and its carrier host, the bacteria E. coli.
The study suggests that the semiotics of the ancient texts illustrate that the Egyptians were not only aware of the similarity between apparently disparate natural phenomena such as solar magnetic fields and Phage Lambda, but that they used then as metaphors in their own mythology.
The methodology employed in The Isis Thesis, is itself unique. The author establishes a demonstrative template of thirty different themes to outline her hypothesis. The point Judy Kay King makes is both startling and fascinating. The contention she puts forward is that the ritual and mythology of the Egyptian understanding of the journey to the afterlife incorporated all natural sciences. This scientific knowledge was encoded in the ancient Texts in such a way that it was in plain sight, yet would only have been known to a select few; as time went by the original knowledge may well have been lost to the Egyptians themselves.
Passages from nine well-known ancient texts including: The Pyramid Texts, the Coffin Texts and The Book of Gates have been carefully studied during the course of the research. The book identifies the sections, words and themes that illustrate how this scientific knowledge was woven into the fabric of the texts themselves. By any standard, this was a formidable undertaking. The author presents as evidence 870 decoded signs that define not only the protein path of Phage Lambda and its carrier host E. coli, but demonstrates how the deceased symbolically followed that path on their journey to the afterlife.
To paraphrase Judy Kay King, It is obvious that according to Egyptian cosmology and from Egyptian science that after death the human consciousness resides in our immortal body, i.e., our genetic essence. The desire of the deceased to merge with the Sun-god in the afterlife is mirrored by the evolutionary merge that operates at molecular level such as with Phage Lambda, and results in the recombinant species Homo Sapiens Lambda.
If the ideas put forward in The Isis Thesis are borne out, it offers clear evidence that religious and scientific understanding of the Ancient Egyptians was based on the structure of a simple protein, Phage Lambda and its relationship with a simple bacteria, E Colei. Not only is that structure imprinted on our Universe as a whole, it suggests that the Egyptian concept of the microcosm and macrocosm was underpinned not by mythology, but by science.
