Sky Goddesses

To start this theme, I have chosen Peru, because, besides of being one of the farthest places reachable by land or sea from Egypt, as it is located at the far the end of South America.
Nonetheless, in there were many civilizations that have flourished using Stone Blocks for building purposes. Matter of fact, up to date, the earliest pyramids in the American continent have been built there.
Furthermore, since similar technologies like Reed boats, Stonework and many other technologies that have been used by Egyptians continue to be in practice up to the present day in Peru. Thus, makes it relevant to beguine with.

World immigration path map

Being Peru, the farthest places reachable by land or sea from Egypt and taking into account the Time presence of Homo sapiens in the world, make it reasonable to start with.

Now that is scientifically proven that chickens and rats animals that did not exist on the American continent before the arrival of human beings were already in Peru before it’s European contact at the beginning of the 16th century. Thus, it is certainly that neither chickens could not fly, nor rats can swim up to there, but had to be carried by a man in boats through the ocean. As well, the tools that were used to carve the statues in Eastern Islands is known that came from more than a thousand miles away. Venetian Crystals that has been found in Chiumu’s culture tombs (900- 1400 AD) in North of Peru as funerary offers, wich date even before the Incas conquered that region at the end of the 15th century.

However, the most important evidential reasons overall are:
AND from Japanese and other people from in the other side of the Pacific Ocean has been found in Peru, from much earlier periods than the Pre-Columbian Times.
On the other hand, there is a controversial issue concerning the founding of tobacco traits in Pharaoh’s Ramses II mommy.
As well as it is a known fact that China had the possibilities to mobilize thirty thousand warriors at the time in huge sailing vessels and evidence that they had contact with Eastern Africa before Cristobal Colon, who ripped the veil of America to Europe by crossing the Atlantic in modest boats.
Hence, it is clear evidence that opens wide open the Pacific Ocean Door as a cultural linking pathway to most ancient civilizations and Egypt with America.

Recent DNA studies also show that Native America was populated by a truly small group, composed merely of two women, which definitively crossed the Bearing Strait only about twenty thousand years ago.
Thus, being Peru, America’s pyramids building starting point and because it is also located almost in the opposite tip of the continent from where the first immigration on foot arrived.

Then, Being the Bearing Straight the principal pathway from Siberia, today Russia, from where the most numerous native hunters and gatherers population group proceeded to populate South America. Hence, has to be taken into account that the supplementary technologies were incremented by other immigrations arriving by sea, some time later that Bearing.

Therefore, even so that ancient Peruvians significantly dominated this construction technique some time ago, but not being sufficient time enough to support the possibility of to developed such a system.
Hence, has to be taken into account that the supplementary technologies were incremented by other immigrations arriving by sea, some time later that Bearing probably five thousand or more years ago.

 

Huacas-Mastabas Peru-Egypt link.

 Mastaba like Huacabuilding Lambayeque Peru

A typical Peruvian Huaca, a Mastaba like ceremonial burial building, Lambayeque Peru.

Huacas were Egyptian Mastaba like, with trapezoidal walls structure, burial-ceremonial buildings made with Mud bricks (adobes), as well, were built aligned to the Cardinal points. Thus, mausoleum-like memorials used to bury personages of outstanding standing.

However, also, most probably built to perform the additional ceremonial functions as Temples, like their similar ones in Egypt, as they were thought as the “House for Eternity.” Because they were expected to have some kind of Sky relation, as it was their principal motivation purposes to build things of such magnitude.

Mastaba Giza Egypt

Also an Egyptian typical Mastaba at Giza, Egypt’s Fourth Dynasty burial grounds.

Although that there is a time lapse of thousands of years the external form is essentially the same, four trapezoidal walls, to be expected representing rays of light nonetheless a point of communication with and the afterward world, as it is shown by the Niches in the side walls.

The physical burial arrangement was made deep below the ground bevel, usually, resembling a boot shoe whole at the center of the structure. In both places, that person is buried with the best of their clothes and utensils that they believed would be useful in the hereafter. To which, they kept the best of their belongings, without using them in life, taking them along to be buried in that building that they imagined it as was going to be their dwelling residence in his imaginary life after this concept.

Though, in this particular Huaca in Peru, used adobes as construction material, in Egypt originally, even before Dynastic times, the Adobes also were the main material used for this building prose. As well, later during the twelfth dynasty, Middle Empire period (2055-1650 BC.), even Pyramids were made with Mud bricks once again. Because that suited more to their ideas concerning their Lunar God Osiris. Likewise, in that coastal Northern region of Peru, which is where something similar was also occurring at the time when that Huaca was build, as those people had Moon worshiping preferences, as well.

Mastaba round corners Giza Egypt

Round corners Mastaba at Giza Egypt.

There is also a peculiarity in the Mastabas building characteristics, some are made with round corners from incalculable times since they were constructed in Adobe that with time has integrated into the ground, and had just about disappeared.

Nonetheless, the building foundations remain, but building foundations reveal that the some ancient Mastabas were built with round and sharp corners from many early times long before the Dynastic period 3100 BC.

temple Pisac Cusco Peru

Sharp and Rounded corners and double door Mastaba like building at Pisac Cusco Peru.

At Cusco Peru is a colonial city Pisac that was built close to one of the biggest Inca cemetery, which, today it is also an archeological place of much interest known by the same name. As it is where you can still see a small cluster of buildings, of course on a very small scale, indicating that it was a trapezoidal ceremonial center designed like the God’s Amon-Re or Ra Temple at Karnack in Egypt. The largest Temple conglomerate in the world that was consecrated to this God, who also was associated with the Sun God.

Even more, the buildings there, besides of being made with Stone blocks, some have sharp, and others round corners like mastabas did. Indeed, It is a sum of not one but multiple facts and factors that not only shows building structural relations, but a functions similitudes with Temples, as well.

 Pisac temples Cusco Peru

Other ceremonial buildings compound at the same Pisac mountain showing that the trapezoidal temple design in not a coincidence.

The fact that the trapezoidal design is repeated in the temples construction shows that the trapezoid must have a role of much significance in the design of temples because it indicates that this symbol must have some sort Sky implication in both civilizations concepts.

However, it must be kept in mind that around this ceremonial center also can be seen farming terraces also made with stones. Thus, being that this technology was also mastered by other civilizations in the middle of the traject by land between Egypt-Peru. Then, it is an additional circumstance endorsing that they are not mere coincidence that those are additional features and techniques from other places that were acquired in the way by generations through distance and time.Which complicates even more in Matters to establish a link as it has additional traits added to.

Central Plaa Huanuco Viejo Peru

Huanuco viejo Ushno's principal feature Huanuco Viejo Ancash, Peru.

Huanuco Viejo (Old in Spanish) was the capital city of the northern region o the Inca kingdom, now located in central Peru, Ancash province.

Since this city main local resource was raising and obtain Wool from the American Camelids like Guanacos Llamas and Vicuñas. The main City build was built like in a Ushno (Quechua word for Central Plaza) with Stone blocks, a massive Mastaba like central edification from where the entire labor related to the exploitation of this animals was overseen and directed.

Because its access is done by a ramp and the borders of the entire building are surrounded by a corniche much like the Egyptian temples had, most likely it played a similar function, as well, besides its other functions.

Monkey representaions at Huanuco Viejo arch gates Peru

Huanuco Viejo city also had Sun aligned doors like Ancient Egyptian Temples have.

However, most important of all since there are multiple figures of monkeys carved at each side of arches that align following the sun's ray path to determine dates. Being the alignment of doors also feature common in Egyptian Temples.

Monkey back to back representaios at Huanuco Viejo Peru

The Monkey position resembles the Est and West, Sphinx representation in Egypt.

The monkies positions, face to face in the arch where the Sun’s Path can be a tracker to determine a date and their back to back situation on top of Huanuco’s Viejo central building. Thus, shows that the monkey figure with its tails in a spiral as the Sky behaves about the North Star in the Northern Hemisphere.
Though, in the South, this movement relates to the Southen Cross, which probably is the case in this situation.
Nonetheless, they could also be representing some sort of Sky movement or behavior during the year.

Therefore, one way or the other, the Monkeys stand are standing for Sky Symbols in Huanuco Viejo.

 Ibis birds at Huanuco Viejo Peru

Ibis birds at close range from Huanuco Viejo Temple.

As Huanuco Viejo is also a place where an abundant number of Ibis bird are found, a bird that was preferred to represent this deity, and as it is known that the Monkeys alone or with Lions traits was venerated as a Symbol in Ancient Peru.
Makes out of the Monkey a Symbol, which at that time, it must have to be related to the Sky, making it very probable if these two cultures had a link, was to share some sort of link in this so necessary field.

Then, since God Thoth was frequently represented with an Ibis face, and often is seen accompanied by two Monkeys. As well, he is the Egypt God associated with knowledge and astronomy. Thus are facts that add up points toward a possible link in this matters.

The fact that the gateways in Huanuco Viejo align with the central plaza (Ushno) main rectangular building. And because the Monkeys decorating Sun’s path Arches, stand for some kind of Sky symbology. Even so that the features of the city’s design are positively related to raising American Camelids like Huanacos, which were abundant in that region.

Therefore, since the Monkeys are symbols representing allegories related to the Sky mechanics, then, the entire city most probably also had Temple incumbencies. Giving to the central building an altar, Mastaba or Temple relationship.

Amon Ra Temole Karnak Egypt

Amon Ra Temple at Karnak Egypt surrounding walls resemblances a huge mastaba.

The temple consecrated to God Amon Ra the principal deity of Karnak had a trapezoidal shape, because since temples represented the Sky and as they believed that the Sky did hold the Eternal Waters. And the water was considered the most sacred element, for which many temples in Egypt contained sacred lake or means to worship this element, considered essential for life.
In Peru, obviously for the same reason temple contained water adoratories that go from a fountain of water to even artificial lakes same as in Egypt.

Therefore, since water bullets that women carried on their heads at that time, had a trapezoidal form and holds water, and as they believed that Sky contains the Waters of Heaven, the trapezoid was used as its symbol.
Then, because the symbol of water is drawn over the trapezoid and at times, this concept is shown with either eye representing the Sun God signifying the day or with the figures of God Anubis as a some kind of dog in place of the night, supports the idea that it is a Sky representation.

Tampumachay Water adoratory Cusco Peru

Water adoratory pond at Tampumachay Cusco Peru.

At Tampumachay Cusco Peru, is a water adoratory whose liquid surges out from the interior of the mountain. This springing water is channeled by two water conduits, that were carved in the stone with the idea to pour the water splashing into the pond, when this happens, only the trapezoidal stone at the rear gets wet. Thus, highlighting this symbol that in Egypt represented the Eternal waters in the Sky.

Pisac Water adoratory Cusco Peru

Water adoratory at Pisac Cusco Peru.

The fact that there is also another canalized water fountain in Pisac, also showing that the water as it falls in its way also wets the background stone in where the water splashing also makes a trapezoidal figure.
Thus, by delineating a trapezoid similar to the one seen in Tampumachay, is indicating that the creation of its design, was achieved through a well-planned calculation.
Because the shape of the stone placed behind covers the entire area that was going to be wetted by the effect of the water as it falls It had planned before it was built.

Hence, shows that the trapezoid did have a profound significance about the water element and for such to the life itself or/and to the renewal of life afterward, as well during the Inca Times like in Ancient Egypt. Although The trapezoid is inverted, as it is either representing the Sky or this World.

Furthermore, in a way or other both civilizations worshiped a Sun God, Ra or Re in Egyptian and Inti in Quechua, the language spoken in Pisac, but did identify their gods with sounds totally apar. Then, opes a question.Why if they used similar symbols for this task, why is that their sound differ that much? Therefore, since all this indicates that besides the materials and techniques, also did have much competence in matters of concepts and symbols. Thus, because of the use of similar related symbols is a signal of some kind of awareness between each other.

 

Pachacamac-Abydos link.

Pachacamac Temle LimaPeru

Classical Inca double frame entrance at Pachacamac Temple Lima Peru.

PPachacamac Temple south of Lima Peru was a place where Incas (15th century) did build a temples conglomerate in the Central Coast area, which accordingly that, this door belongs to that period of time style.

For such, this temple’s door it is showing some of the peculiar characteristics that identify the Inca architecture:
Even so that the Incas’ buildings in the Mountain Region usually were made entirely of Stone blocks, however, in the Coast area, they used this construction element for the foundation, floors, part of the height of the wall and especially the doors, which were done totally in Polished Stone blocks.
The doors, windows, and niches were shaped in trapezoidal form, and some of them were distinguished from the other by having and additional internal frame or additional side and lintel supports.

Pachacamac Temle LimaPeru

Behind the temple's main tree steps door entrance, there also are two additional six and nine steps sequences.

Because, behind the tree steps at the entrance door there is a corridor with two additional six and nine steps sequences, and being all, 1, 2, 3, multiples of three. It is possible that the door and its corridor were of much significance as the entry of one of the biggest temples in the area, likely giving to it a meaning of exclusivity and distinction, and most probably an astronomy implication, as well.

Pachacamac Temle LimaPeru

External view of Pachacamac Temple Lima Peru.

Because. Incas did not conquer the area, Temples were not nations, but were influential places because they kept precious technical and relevant knowledge, got tributes from the rulers like in Egypt.

Even so that they are so apart in Time, certain concepts relationship between Pachacamac and Abydos are present. Because in Pachacamac other civilizations who worshiped an underground deity also have built temples there long before the Incas. Nonetheless, they made building offerings to the Temple like Ancient Pharaohs did.
Hence, they did build luminous external pyramids which also used ramps for their access, dedicated to the Sun’s worshiping and artificial ponds with corridors and ritualistic steps dedicated to water allegories, similar to the characteristic seen in the Abydos temples area.

Similar to what occurs during Pharaoh Ramses II reign during the Nineteen Dynasty, who also builds a large temple, side by side of his successor Pharaoh Seti I, but it was done at ground level consecrated to Sun God.
As well, sometime before Pharaoh Ahmose, the first ruler of the Eighteen Dynasty, founder of the New Empire Egyptian period, contributed to this center with a pyramid consecrated to God Osiris, whose structure took advantage of a mountain nearby, which marks the end of the construction of pyramids in Pharaonic Egypt.

Five Step pond Pachacamac Temle Lima Peru

Five Step pond Pachacamac Temple Lima Peru.

Though it is necessary to pay attention to the fact that the temple corridors lead to a place apart, where there is a pond that has five steps as a means of access. Then, for the reason that this corridor is found in isolated Temple grounds, it certainly must have a very significative ritualistic function. For which, considering that there are five steps to reach the water in the pond.

Thus being water the greatest symbol of Life, and since the water pond reflects and also with its rectangular form, represents a place somewhere in the Sky, which without a doubt, has to be a symbolic representation of the Eternal waters, in another word, definitely a conduit to reach life in the afterward.

Therefore, the steps are a symbol, which stands as mean or a pathway to reach the Sky or Heaven, coinciding with the Egyptian concept God’s Shu, Five steps stairs that United heaven ad Earth.

Five Step Symbol in Chan Chan Trujillo Peru

Five Step Symbol in Chan-Chan Trujillo Peru.

Chan-Chan is a city close to actual Trujillo Peru that was the capital city of The Chimu Civilization that did flourish before the Incas, and whose kingdom extension did cover almost the entire Northern Coastal area of actual Peru, which is the place where can be found this Five Step symbol.

Because, the most known symbol in the American continent is a similar exponent with only three steps, which because of its diffusion and persistence must have some holy attributing meaning, for such this other symbol alike, must also have to be considered similar but containing a different interpretation. Though, because the Five Step symbol is found in a temple next to a Symbolic Net, clearly indicates that it also has a Sky or Heavenly relation.

Now, as the other accompanying symbol, which looks like our letter G, also usually appears to behind the Step Symbol, them coincidence or not, the G like symbol in hieroglyphs stand for the letter H and also mean temple. Likewise, the triangle inside the steps also is present in the same form I both Steps Symbols and in hieroglyphics the letter Q but also means Great.

Hence, as the Three Step and Five Step in Egypt have a symbolic relation with Gods Osiris or Isis and Shu. Either Symbols holds its own interpretation, the Three Steps as the Great Temple of Osiris. Which has much mining significance in this case relation, since the main door of this temple in Pachacamac has tree steps, followed by a rectangular corridor.
Which most likely was sealed dark, with six and nine steps representing a pathway somewhere in the Sky to reach the luminous temple, representing the Day or Sun’ House.

Details which are indicating that it is a temple honoring a similar deity as the Egyptian god Osiris. And the Five Step in Chan-Chan in Trujillo, much relation to the Great Temple of Shu, because it is at plain air apparently reflecting the Sky. As God, Shu was in direct association with the Sun disk. For such, corresponding to Egyptian apparent writing interpretation just mentioned or something definitively of similar meaning.

Three and Five Steps Symbol

Breaking apart the Peruvian symbols make up a set of precise, meaningful Egyptian Hieroglyphs.

Because in Egypt certain hieroglyphs besides having a phonetic meaning in turn also function as symbols. Then, uniting them is virtually the same as gather the face of Pharaoh with the body of a lion to create the Sphinx or add to snake wings to create an idea, as the Egyptians used to symbolize a concept.
By this idea, the Five Step symbol used by the Chimu civilization in its capital city Chan-Chan a place close to the actual Trujillo in Peru, same as the Three Step, the most popular symbol in the American continent. Because at the time of the European arrival, its use was in practice, in the North by the Aztecs in Mexico, throughout the entire continent as far South as Incas were in Peru and Bolivia.

Moreover, it's used by many other civilizations in between dates back millenniums, that go as far the American cultural awakening. A fact that has not an explanation in America, however in Egypt the Three step symbol was used to write the name of Gods Osiris and Isis, which besides Ra were the most popular deities of the Pharaonic period and even much after.
Nonetheless, the Five Step symbol also represented the columns of heaven as that was the way they depicted the Columns of God Shu that sustained the Sky.

As it seems, these Peruvian Symbols were made out using Egyptian Hieroglyphs by sticking together or placing one in the top of the other. Making these representative figures display a conceptual meaning, which has relevance with similar Egyptian Hieroglyphs.
As their use in Peru and other places in the American continent was done for thousands of years in a very persistent manner and continued in practice for more than a thousand years, even after the decline of the Pharaonic Kingdom. For such, they must also have a profound theological significance as they were used by different civilizations throughout so may thousands of years.For such, a religious implicitness is the only thing that can explain why its diffusion was so vast, and its use was persevered for so long, otherwise, as a simple ideogram, its duration had been brief and much less significant.

Hence, it is obviously that there is relevance between the American and Egyptian symbols, because of its obstinate use in time and so many places in America during such long period of time must hold the same or similar conceptual knowledge as they had in Egypt.

Therefore, since it is evident that both ideograms appear to have been composed by two equal additional Egyptian glyphs drawn together to make the American steps symbols, and being more than four the assembled elements, which are presenting a corresponding functional significance.
Hence, according to the law of probability, this idea should be taken as evidence.
However, only as an iconographic communication link, certainly not as written text, but, without any doubt, made to perform a definitive important symbolic interpretation role.

Abydos temple Egypt

External views of Temples in Pachacamac-Peru and Abydos-Egypt.

Considering the few thousand years that have passed by, and the distance in between, however, in their apparent building colonnade style, do not differ much. Indeed, they look much alike, although, their structure differ, because the seismic conditions in each place are certainly very different, in Peru, do to this issue, were forced to build more sturdy structures than the average columns were made in Egypt.
However, they knew how to take advantage, making niches between very thick walls, to gain more strength and give the same significative resemblance than angular columns, which as to be expected stand for imaginary ducts in the sky where the daily or yearly Sun’s trajectories go through.

Abydos is one of the most ancient ceremonial cities in Egypt, since there is found evidence that Pharaohs as far from the first Dynasty, have inscribed their names in earlier Mastaba like temples found in there, which indicates that Abydos had numerous Dynastic Pharaohs that had a contributing relationship.
As well it is a place where rulers from much earlier pre-dynastic times contributed to the aggrandizement and importance of this temple more than five thousand years ago.

However, at ground level, only has a humble-looking exterior, made by a few sharp angular columns, which shows that this Pharaoh had preferences towards the afternoon God Set and Ptah, who has many affinities to God Osiris in a matter of Moon or Night worshiping concepts.

Abydos temple interior Egypt

Pharaoh' Seti I Temple below ground level at Abydos Egypt shows a great standing difference.

In the other hand, it also has immense subterranean galleries with enormous round columns and niches. Matter of fact, this temple has evidential features indicating underground worshiping preferences, which were dedicated to God Ptah, the god of Memphis and all art and craftsmen. He was thought as the Great Architect, who created the world and made o the living this in this world out of clay. Also Lord of Justice and had similar attributes like the Night Sun God Osiris, the afterward judge, Lord of Life and renewal, since this center was Osiris principal worshiping center consecrated to its veneration in Egypt.

Also, a concept similar to Pachacamac, influential center in the Western Central Seashore of actual Peru, whose original principal deity is known by that name, was worshiped in the interior of a cavern before the Incas came to the region in Lima Peru.

Pachacamac Temle LimaPeru

Big and small ponds with additional symbolic ritual steps are also plentiful in this temple.

As it is a fact the most or all the temple built in Ancient Peru had either a big or small artificial water ponds, which were made along with symbolic steps at corridors aside. Because water played an important ritualistic role, as it also seen in Dendera, Karnak and most or all other Ancient Egyptian temples.

From the Sky mechanics point of view, the sun illuminates in alternate form the East and West sides during the day, and during the year the south and north during winter and summer time. And at Midday and Midnight also, can be traced the t Sun and Moon when they reach the Meridian (North-South) Line.

In the other hand, from its ritualistic aspect, since this particular pond, has a frame like superficies all around, making understandable that it is also representing a niche, whose entry indicates that it is down in the direction of the ground water sources, the underground or the land of the dead.
For such, water not only represents Life but birth as well. Since in our earliest life form, the fetus lives in a water environmental, in darkness, from where comes into this world to see the light to be able to develop its total capacity during the proses of becoming a full grown being.
Likewise, a Water dragon comes out of the water and transforms into a Dragonfly going from one environmental element to other with a different living form.

Hence, the water allegories represented some kind of life renewal, most probably taken as a birth or rebirth symbol in the acquisition of knowledge or a certain position in this life and place in the everlasting afterlife world somewhere in the Sky. Nonetheless, whatever was their goal, either, imaginary Eternal water or and world position, the ocean, lakes, pond or even a jar of water, were thought that by using the proper ceremonies the participants were endowed of similar corresponding ideas about in such matters.

Then, accordingly to all this, since this chamber has an elevated outlook platform, and at its corner has a descending stairway made of three and four steps individual stairs placed in 90° degree set up, gives it a much significant importance. Because in the pottery of Ancient civilizations in Peru appears the Three and Four Steps designs with an intense and repetitive presence. Likewise, In in Sakkara Egypt, Pharaoh Khafra (Khefren) Pyramid has a Slant Rise of 54.7 equivalent to a Three Steps symbol and Pharaohs’ Khufu (Kheops is Greek name) and Menkaure (Micerino) Pyramids’ sides present a Slant Rise of 51° 50” same as a Four Steps symbol.

Therefore, permitting to see that there were two different philosophic trends concerning their afterlife concepts that also was practiced in Peru.

Abydos Seti II Temple Egypt

Ritual ceremonial steps at Pharaoh’ Seti I subterranean temple at Abydos Egypt.

The fact that at Pharaoh’ Seti I Temple inAbydos Egypt a ladder with seven steps is found at the end of a decedent corridor that twists at the end by 90° degrees to reach a ceremonial center.
Though, as it lasted for so many thousand years makes evident that it, not just one a simple coincidence but a match to a strict ritual concept with singular characteristics.

Furthermore, based on the information that in Ancient Peru pyramids and temples continued to be built on top of each other by ruler’s successors, makes possible to think that temples were also used to perform multiple functions. Thus, either Three or Four-Steps ceremonial motives could have been performed there.

Hence, there could have been performed an additional ceremony in which were use the entire set up of a Seven-Step symbol. Consequently, by placing the height of Three-Steps over the four-Step base, is a practical way to make a seven by four or 30° by 60° degree triangle, the easiest practical way to draw a Perfect Triangle of 60° without instruments.

Therefore, having the Perfect Triangle much implication in the Mathematics philosophies. By force, it is an overwhelming fact that makes easier to prove than disprove the presence of a link between this civilizations.
