  • Magic in Ancient Egypt - Heka Magic

    Heka Magic in ancient Egypt was not a parlor trick or illusion; it was the harnessing of the powers of natural laws, conceived of as supernatural entities, in order to achieve a certain goal. To the Egyptians, a world without magic was inconceivable. Heka, the magic of ancient Egyptians, continues to be one of the most mysterious and fascinating magical practices in the world. The first information about ancient Egyptian magic comes from about 4500 BC. Magical amulets which were created in those times stayed in use until approximately the 5th century AD, and were revived again in modern times. There are also some written spells which have survived until now on reliefs, paintings, papyri, etc. Information source: https://www.egyptian-witchcraft.com/ 💜 Subscribe and like if you enjoyed the...

Check out our new channel with 100 of HD Documentaries https://www.youtube.com/c/seosantv [Seosan TV] The characteristics of ancient Egyptian technology are indicated by a set of artifacts and customs that lasted for thousands of years. The Egyptians invented and used many simple machines, such as the ramp and the lever, to aid construction processes. They used rope trusses to stiffen the beam of ships. Egyptian paper, made from papyrus, and pottery were mass-produced and exported throughout the Mediterranean basin. The wheel, however, did not arrive until foreign influence introduced the chariot in the 16th century BC. The Egyptians also played an important role in developing Mediterranean maritime technology including ships and lighthouses. Significant advances in ancient Egypt during the dynastic period include astronomy, mathematics, and medicine. Their geometry was a necessary outgrowth of surveying to preserve the layout and ownership of farmland, which was flooded annually by the Nile river. The 3,4,5 right triangle and other rules of thumb served to represent rectilinear structures, and the post and lintel architecture of Egypt. Egypt also was a center of alchemy research for much of the western world. The Nile valley has been the site of one of the most influential civilizations in the world with its architectural monuments, which include the pyramids of Giza and the Great Sphinx—among the largest and most famous buildings in the world. Giza Plateau, Cairo. Khafre's pyramid in the background The most famous pyramids are the Egyptian pyramids—huge structures built of brick or stone, some of which are among the largest constructions by humans. Pyramids functioned as tombs for pharaohs. In Ancient Egypt, a pyramid was referred to as mer, literally "place of ascendance." The Great Pyramid of Giza is the largest in Egypt and one of the largest in the world. The base is over 13 acres (53,000 m2) in area. It is one of the Seven Wonders of the World, and the only one of the seven to survive into modern times. The Ancient Egyptians capped the peaks of their pyramids with gold and covered their faces with polished white limestone, although many of the stones used for the finishing purpose have fallen or been removed for use on other structures over the millennia. The Red Pyramid of Egypt (c.26th century BC), named for the light crimson hue of its exposed granite surfaces, is the third largest of Egyptian pyramids. Menkaure's Pyramid, likely dating to the same era, was constructed of limestone and granite blocks. The Great Pyramid of Giza (c. 2580 BC) contains a huge granite sarcophagus fashioned of "Red Aswan Granite." The mostly ruined Black Pyramid dating from the reign of Amenemhat III once had a polished granite pyramidion or capstone, now on display in the main hall of the Egyptian Museum in Cairo (see Dahshur). Other uses in Ancient Egypt,[8] include columns, door lintels, sills, jambs, and wall and floor veneer. The ancient Egyptians had some of the first monumental stone buildings (such as in Sakkara). How the Egyptians worked the solid granite is still a matter of debate. Archaeologist Patrick Hunt has postulated that the Egyptians used emery shown to have higher hardness on the Mohs scale. Regarding construction, of the various methods possibly used by builders, the lever moved and uplifted obelisks weighing more than 100 tons.

Seems like the society of ancient Egypt was well ahead of its time on this issue, because men and women were equal under the law! That meant women were free to live without a legal male guardian and could make their own decisions. There were however, certain limits in occupations. For example, a woman wouldn’t be allowed to hold a position in the army nor would a man be expected to be in charge of a household. However, everything else was equal. For example, women could marry whomever they wanted and later on divorce if things didn’t work out. Women could also buy and manage their own property, meaning a woman could inherit things down the female line in her family. Another fun fact was that neither sex was favored when it came to childbearing, as both sexes were seen as equal. The Ancient Egyptian gods and goddess are another proof of how far the equality went, as each sex was determined to be as important as the other, and that each sex had a unique set of skills. Hey, that makes total sense to me, I KNEW men and women are different! Also, you might be surprised to learn that both sexes wore make-up, something that was more of a social norm rather than gender right. 8 – Who really built the pyramids? The pyramids are as grand and mesmerizing as they can be. Majestic establishments of up to 455 feet built in order to offer shelter for the part of the dead king’s soul that stayed behind. Let’s just keep in mind the different technology available at the time, so it’s just utterly amazing how these structures were built. Having structures as grand as pyramids proves just how advanced of a civilization existed on earth back in those times. If you try and think about the construction process, you probably get instant flashes of that Cleopatra movie where slaves are laboring their lives away while a supervisor slashes his whip on their backs. As it turns out, that is an extremely common misconception, and the one responsible for conjuring the myth is the Greek historian Herodotus, all the way back in the fifth century BC. While it is true that there were slaves in ancient Egyptian society, they were mostly used for domestic labors or for field work, tasks fairly easier compared to the tiring construction of the pyramids. Actual construction workers who were rather skilled were used for the pyramids – it was considered a huge honor to work on the pyramids and workers took pride in their work. Most of them were paid workers who took two or three-month shifts at the construction site and used to sleep and eat near the building area. In fact, they were entitled to so many rights, that they actually could do labor strikes if they didn’t get paid on time. One method of payment included beer, meaning that a day of work was worth almost a gallon and a half of beer! Hey, I think I know a few people nowadays who’d still sign up for this agreement!

Children didn't wear clothes until they were teenagers Pharaohs never let their hair be seen and would always wear a headdress called a nemes This headdress was made famous by Tutankhamen's golden mask Rich Egyptians usually wore wigs Poor Egyptians usually wore pig tails or just had their hair long Boys usually had their heads shaved except for one long braid. This was meant to protect against lice. Egyptians believed that the Earth was flat, circular, and that the Nile flowed right through the middle Although women enjoyed legal and economic equality with men, they were not seen as socially equall Graffiti discovered at the excavation sites has shown that some of the teams who built the pyramids actually gave themselves names like the "Friends of Khufu" During mummification, the brain was pulled out through the nostrils Every other organ was also removed and placed in a jar The only organ left in the body was the heart because it was believed to contain the soul Many ancient tombs were found to contain toilets The world's oldest dress was found in Egypt and is estimated to be 5,000 years old Cleopatra, the last pharaoh of Egypt was actually Greek Contrary to popular belief, the teams that built the pyramids weren't slaves, but paid laborers. This false belief began with Herodotus, the Greek historian. Interestingly enough, they were paid in beer! 1 gallon of beer per day to be exact The Ancient Egyptians shaved their eyebrows off to mourn the deaths of their cats And possibly the most uncomfortable fact of the day – ancient Egyptians slept on pillows made of stone!

Genetic analysis reveals a close relationship with Middle Easterners, Europeans and Anatolians, not central Africans. The tombs of ancient Egypt have yielded golden collars and ivory bracelets, but another treasure — human DNA — has proved elusive. Now, scientists have captured sweeping genomic information from Egyptian mummies. It reveals that mummies were closely related to ancient Middle Easterners, hinting that northern Africans might have different genetic roots from people south of the Sahara desert. The study, published on 30 May in Nature Communications, includes data from 90 mummies buried between 1380 BC, during Egypt’s New Kingdom, and ad 425, in the Roman era. The findings show that the mummies’ closest kin were ancient farmers from a region that includes present-day Israel and Jordan. Modern Egyptians, by contrast, have inherited more of their DNA from central Africans. Archaeological discoveries and historical documents suggest close ties between Egypt and the Middle East, but “it is very nice that this study has now provided empirical evidence for this at the genetic level”, says evolutionary anthropologist Omer Gokcumen of the State University of New York at Buffalo. The scientists obtained information about variations in mitochondrial DNA, which is passed from mother to child, from 90 mummies. Because of contamination, the team was able to acquire detailed nuclear DNA, which is inherited from both parents, from only three mummies. Both types of genomic material showed that ancient Egyptians shared little DNA with modern sub-Saharan Africans. Instead, their closest relatives were people living during the Neolithic and Bronze ages in an area known as the Levant. Strikingly, the mummies were more closely related to ancient Europeans and Anatolians than to modern Egyptians. Despite repeated conquests of Egypt, by Alexander the Great, Greeks, Romans, Arabs and Assyrians — the list goes on — ancient Egyptians showed little genetic change. “The other big surprise,” Krause said, “was we didn't find much sub-Saharan African ancestry.” The scientists compared these ancient genetics with those of 100 modern Egyptians and 125 modern Ethiopians that had been previously analyzed. If you ask Egyptians, they'll say that they have become more European recently, Krause said. “We see exactly the opposite,” he said. It was not until relatively recently in Egypt's long history that sub-Saharan genetic influences became more pronounced. “In the last 1,500 years, Egypt became more African, if you want,” Krause said. . Ancient Egyptian mummy genomes suggest an increase of Sub-Saharan African ancestry in post-Roman periods The researchers say that there was probably a pulse of sub-Saharan African DNA into Egypt roughly 700 years ago. The mixing of ancient Egyptians and Africans from further south means that modern Egyptians can trace 8% more of their ancestry to sub-Saharan Africans than can the mummies from Abusir el-Meleq. The new data can’t explain why the ancient Egyptians were so tightly aligned with people from the Middle East. Was it the result of migration, or were the Stone Age hunter-gatherers of northern Africa genetically similar to those of the Levant? It’s too early to tell, Krause says, but there’s a better chance now of getting answers. “This is the first glimpse of the genetic history of Egypt,” he says. “But it’s really just the start.” Sources: https://www.nature.com/news/mummy-dna-unravels-ancient-egyptians-ancestry-1.22069 https://www.nature.com/articles/ncomms15694 Study of ancient mummies reveals they were Turkish and European http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-4555292/Study-mummies-reveals-Turkish-European.html

Heka Magic in ancient Egypt was not a parlor trick or illusion; it was the harnessing of the powers of natural laws, conceived of as supernatural entities, in order to achieve a certain goal. To the Egyptians, a world without magic was inconceivable. Heka, the magic of ancient Egyptians, continues to be one of the most mysterious and fascinating magical practices in the world. The first information about ancient Egyptian magic comes from about 4500 BC. Magical amulets which were created in those times stayed in use until approximately the 5th century AD, and were revived again in modern times. There are also some written spells which have survived until now on reliefs, paintings, papyri, etc. Information source: https://www.egyptian-witchcraft.com/ 💜 Subscribe and like if you enjoyed the video.
