Alphabet I ©

Thoth was the scribe of the gods. Priest/scribes of the Thoth school were the Pagan intelligentsia. They were teachers, writers, scientists, mathematicians, and astronomers.

The majuscule (capital) letter I is a picture of the tet(djed) figure.

Some letters of the alphabet are parts of Assur that Isis gathered for his resurrection. Some letters of the alphabet are paraphernalia related to the gods and their functions. The tet(djed) figure is both. The tet(djed) figure represents the backbone of Assur. Egyptian art abounds with hundreds of versions of the tet(djed). There are many images of Assur pictured as a tet(djed). "Raising the Tet" ceremonies commemorated the resurrection of Assur, the rebuilding of an ancient structure, and the reestablishment of social order after a period of chaos.

The stars remain forever in their places. The heavens are orderly, stable and secure. The backbone of Assur represents social order, stability, and security. However, the figure that represents Assur's backbone is not a picture of his backbone. The Tet is a structure. The Tet is an ancient astronomical observatory. The Tet is the Tower of Babel.
(NOTE: The orginal Tet tower, before the resurrected one, may not have been in Babylon. It may have been in pre-Egyptian Egypt.)

In ancient times, astronomers made their astronomical observations at the horizon. They had no instruments for making accurate measurements overhead as modern astronomers have. The four "levels" on the Tet were balconies that ran around the outside of the tower. Those were false horizons. The natural horizon on the ground is irregular. The ancient astronomers couldn't make consistent and accurate astronomical measurements on the natural horizon. They created false horizons on a tower to get them above the natural terrain. They kept their horizons level by measuring up from water in a moat around the base of the tower.

The four horizons on the tower served different purposes. One was for solar observations. Another was for stars. One was for the moon. And one was for planets. The astronomers worked inside the tower. They observed the passages of celestial objects across their respective horizons through slots and slits in the tower walls. They sighted from a plumb-line suspended in the center of the tower. By means of this ancient astronomical instrument the ancients mapped the major movements of the heavens in very early times.

Ultimately, the mariner's sextant and the planetary drive telescopes of today trace their origins to the Tower of Babel and the resurrection of Assur.

The minuscule letter i is a picture of a person.

Ptolemy, 'the last of the ancient astronomers' Future astronomer looking up at the stars The majuscule letters are heaven symbols. The minuscule letters are earth symbols. The majuscule letter I represents the Tet Tower which was an astronomical observatory for observing the heavens. The minuscule letter i represents the astronomer on earth observing the heavens. I is the personal pronoun. The minuscule letter i is anyone on earth under heaven. They don't have to be astronomers to look up at the stars.

The Pagan religion of the Isis bloodline was "wisdom religion." Wisdom was its highest virtue. "Seeing is believing." "I know what I see." In Pagan religious symbolism, eyes and animals with powerful eyesight are wisdom symbols. The dot above the i represents the eye of a person. The letter i is symbolic of intelligence, intellect, and wisdom of the educated kind.

In many letters of the alphabet, the sound of the letter is easily discernable from the picture. Usually, the sound is related to the earth symbol of the pair. The sound of neither I nor i is clear from the picture. The sound of I could be derived from the sound of the wind whistling around the tower.


Could Stonehenge be the skeleton of a dragon that Saint George slew?

Stonehenge was an ancient astronomical observatory. The stones of Stonehenge are the "bony skeleton" of what was once a large wooden structure. The massive stones were an immovable skeleton that enabled the wooden part of the structure to be replaced and maintained in exactly the same position over many generations of people. Stonehenge was an evolutionary development of the Tet Tower. At Stonehenge, the four rings were concentric on one level instead of being stacked one above another. The moat around Stonehenge defines the size of the outer ring. Despite the crudeness of the instrument, on a ring of that size, those early astronomers could make very accurate measurements.

Resurrect Isis. Her time to rise from the darkness of ages has come. A new age of enlightenment is dawning on the horizon.
