The Ebony label of King Den, 1st Dynasty from his tomb at Abydos.

british museum, Nov-2005 088

But now we can look more deeply into the minds of the authors…

Busy in research of late. So much unfolding so fast. I may be letting down the side.
Not adding of late to this fascinating interest of old Egypt which is enjoyed and shared by us all.  But I just found this item among posted pics on the net.
Little known of it apparently – its origins so ancient.

Perhaps today we can see further into it from the much clearer view that the significant Gosford incident brought to light. Now we know what it was they were talking about.
Understanding thru reading the tablet, applying its correct idiogram logo-based selection of text with the images used. Understood only ever for the first time by those about to read it here. Learning with me.

I haven’t read it either, only glanced at it. Some I probably can’t read. I’ll point those out. A couple of parts a bit blurry. Still I think for the most part we can read enough to find understanding.         Should be an interesting read if any wish to follow.

So.. referring to the starting picture above…..
I believe this to talk of Deneb’s grandson & third generation of Osiris and Isis. The first dynasty old Egypt. I would suggest perhaps just over 5,000 yrs ago.
Not sure what known history makes of it, and for sake of falling into already well-worn ruts in the road I don’t want to know either. Later perhaps when I’ve taken from my own thoughts. As I often do, I’ll continue adding here with comments to go with the still pics. as we progress our way thru it. Perhaps it will be of more value and worth sharing when complete.

Starting here I’ll begin. (My comments referring to each picture following)
A name. This is how I recognise Denenb or Den.
Basically it’s made of just two texts.
The open hand. – it’s sounding is ‘Dj’
The wiggle glypt – ‘Nn’ – together holding tongue to roof of mouth as you say it.
This is his spiritual name used here. Indicating this is of a spiritual matter. Unlike a work task or victory ect. …So far we can be aware to Den here is being talked of regarding a spiritual matter of personnel importance to him.

5159

Very quickly things take a turn for the worst for Den .
In this column protection from the mother protector is summoned.
Third text on top right. That’s a rattle there – its shaken noise to scare demons away.
Bringing a healing protection from the ‘she’ it represents.
Mother creator the great feminine spirit who first crafted them all – Khnum.

Under it and reminding some, should any learned reader of text be reading here.
This is very early in Egypt’s long evolution of used text.
There …second line down is the glyph of a chic. Stick form perhaps but correct to grammar it is. A chic seen from side on.
Its meaning includes ‘The one who is’ ..the one whose soul we are talking of.
Its sound value ‘Uh’ letter in alpha is used for ‘U,’ and right of it ..the entwined circling text indicating a human This one however carries a loosely attached upper lid completing its upper top.
It’s meaning is ‘Horizon.’
In total the two part composition tells,
‘THE ONE WHO IS THAT PERSON NOW ON THE HORIZON.’

Grief comes next – if unlike them, death isn’t celebrated by us.
The large U shaped glyph is there with its extended fingers rising.
‘KA’ – the name given or used for the more astral part to one’s soul.
That part within them freed by death and living on in the afterlife in heaven.
Their preferred and most desired cherished goal.
Reading down we can say this reads….
‘MOTHER MOTHER PROTECTION FOR THE ONE WHO IS. THIS PERSON HERE ON THE HORIZON.
HIS KA’.

It is possible to read it from bottom to top and says the same thing to the point.
‘THE KA OF THE ONE WHO IS THIS PERSON HERE ON THE HORIZON PROTECTED BY MOTHER MOTHER’……..See what I mean.

7279

The rattle thru great time and distance. Carried on as many of our shared origins still do.  Forgotten perhaps for their first use.
Given to children and babies. The very noise coming from playing with it protecting the child. Warding of evil and sickness. You and I likely had one too.
Yep seems Den there has kicked the bucket.
He very likely according to the read so far. I think he is dead.
This top box. A figure holding a stick.
Some measuring going on here. That’s Thoth. He who accounts all one’s deeds in life.
Hope Den’s been a good man He is being judged. Here’s the pic…..

2266

In later depictions. We see more characters involved in this measuring judging and accounting of ones deeds in life.
Later depictions show, along with Thoth, the goddess of the sycamore forest Sehset.
She who places ones name on the tree of life eternal.
This text we are reading comes three dynasties earlier than Sehets entrance into the core of Egyptian evolving mythology. She does not exist yet.
Her birth time and place in this, & those following my work will be aware too::
Sehset born from the Ka of the dead Ruler Khufu hundreds of years still yet to come…
At that time years later at the birth of the new Goddess Seshet.
Giving her God status meant those Gods welcomed her and gave with it some of their jobs, reinforcing her credibility of God status.
The accounting of things by Thoth his job his jurisdiction was shared to her.
After that time we see these same scenes of judgment looking like this.

5046

Lastly Adding importance by its mere mention of his presence there among what it is being said.  Completing the upper left quadrant and finishing it, adding a presence of the Great God there. …………Crow – greatest God………Block of Steps, a climb.- meaning mount.
THE GREAT GOD ON THE MOUNT.

2668

Lookie here. This quadrant will be fun.
The Lion. The image where later the Sphinx was to be copied from. Here is a first reference to what is happening next. Also a geographical link to knowing where he is now. . Looking good for Den ..or his Ka at least. Good things happening here in this part to his telling

4676

Might need a cuppa tea for this one. Mid left. 
There we see a growing stump. A healthy planted reed bulb. Meaning growing in newer life  Under it the serpent text – meaning there. ..To their right, a feather. Telling this is – true truth, and together reading ::: 
PLACED GROWING THERE AMONG THE SACRED FIELDS. IN NEWER LIFE IN TRUEST TRUTH.  ……Looks like he has made it to heaven at this point.

0184

This is powerful. Always is when concerning the lion.
The lion its strength and power often attributed to RA himself.
More often however the image refers to his home.
The front of it. As it is here.
Lower left – the two open mouth shapes. Their sound value adding RA as himself separating the image from his name. ..Leaving with RA there at ‘The home of RA ‘ in its place.
Underneath another powerful symbol in its natural most simplest form. A twig. Yes a wooden stick, It’s meaning.. Stick or twig – THE BUSH.
Now together here so far this reads.
PLANTED GROWING THERE ALONGSIDE RA HIS HOME THERE IN THE BUSH.

7559

His home there, we now can recognise –  spoken of over and over in old and new Egyptian texts for thousands of years after. 
Shown here and used as a text from an aerial view of his island.
Added the feather of Maat and Hathor. Together with the falcon head of RA often depicted that way

It would be some hundreds of years yet after the death there of Khufu. During the time of the great building of Giza they were later to copy its image closer to home, making a home in their land for RA there.

4151

Carrying on the telling In this quadrant…..
At the top …what we would recognize today as a horse bridal.
Used in holding to horse, camels and cattle.
The elongated sideways ‘U’ there. – It’s meaning – Holding in.
Under it we see a folded bundle. Looking Like a bag of sweets – It’s meaning – Prepared.
When they say prepared they mean it. Preparation meant mummification and the prayers ceremony and offerings that went with it. Prepared purified in every way, complete ready now for life in afterlife. To the right of it a bent vertical line with blob end.  ..Got to be honest… At this time I’ve not the faintest clue.
Under it a title. The flag symbol meaning NTR God.
Tiny just in front of it. A vertical dash means Spirit.
Let’s read in total what it is we’ve got.

PLANTED GROWING THERE IN NEWER HEALTHY LIFE
IN THE FIELDS ALONG SIDE RA IN HIS HOME IN THE BUSH HELD IN THERE PREPARED PURIST WITH THE NTR GOD RA.

Love this one.
I can only imagine the pain felt by our valued academia guessing at this one and never knowing the details of the actual event.

0676

To the left an enclosure. Within it a seated …a god king image wearing the feminine southern idol in his head dress there.  The enclosure is a shrine…. Holding a body and spirit – belonging to whom. …Well that’s a story in its self.
It will take telling it here to grasp the logo values of this pictogram text.

Not just any shrine this one …A borrowed one.
The shrine of Horus aboard the night boat of Osiris. …It’s his shrine there.
In it placed safe and protected inside the Ba of Osiris makes its journey between the mountains of the Duat each night and returning to his body each Dawn.
Any Ruler dieing on this day joining the pilgrimage to the land of the Gods and heaven aboard the boat. He or she taking safe refuge, sharing the dead corpse of Osiris, protected there in the shrine of Horus. …Today here in this image we are seeing Den here in that chair.

2282

A God king of the Southern land…… It’s all about culture, Spirit Mother, mother in our land.
Takes explaining much to get to the guts of it. Further in the read I see her as Maree – there mentioned looking forward in a few moments bringing her out into the light.
That great connection which they so dearly shared in learning from culture.

Half enclosing the large shepherds staff there. ….Meaning -Domain.
Mountains either side of the traveling figure. The journey between them in this place called the Duat. The mountains holding up the sky. Those in the north and those in the south all that lies in between.
The God idol and his ruling cattle – the whip protruding from his rear, giving that image jurisdiction as a God figure traveling between.
Now let’s read this in its full content.
DEN SAFE IN THE BODY OF OSIRUS THE SHRINE OF HORUS TRAVELING THE JOURNEY OF THE DUAT THE DOMAIN OF THE GODS.

7265

The story grows deeper. Closer to home for many of us.
Telling here of the final arrival ….Here in that place …..His destination. ….Heaven on Earth. ….It was this Quadrant that first caught my attention.
Noticing from my teaching by country of Mother there. Maree the feminine spirit to our gifted land.  The land bringer of sustenance should we honour it.
Bringer of life’s consistency. Should we care for her as she does, in making a place for us to dwell in.

2781

First glypth. That hatched spine and ribs image…. It’s meaning – Welfare.
Not a financial dole as our modern minds first lead. But that same welfare extended by a mother to her child as in a man to his bride, or a shepherd to his flock. A loving caring creator to her children too.

2767

Alongside, the stork next seen there.
Nature’s ways seen as spirit imaged in the animals around us. Shared the same and as taught by our originals in paints.

7341

Next on the right. The stork.
It’s image meaning- Great spirit in the land. Added to in narrowing down its location ….here talked of in the next text alongside it.
The long drawn out circular text…… Its meaning is- Island.
So far in this part to the read giving us.
SUSTENANCE CONSISTENCY GIVEN BY THE GREAT SPIRIT THERE ON THE ISLAND.

Patterns start to emerge as we see the great learning given and shared as an early but still forming Egypt. It is shown in its images of spirit seen thru the scenes of animals portrayed.
Gifted was Egypt, taught by culture in their still paintings of spirit as it often is this same way today.

Last on this sideways reading column.
We can call this for simplicity a tri glyph.
I just made that up. Doing my best. Giving an easier understanding to the complicated names thru the formation of multiple texts placed together and used as one.
Three symbols conjoined.
At its top. The ‘V’ Image. Magic at its most powerful.
Seen here too appearing in both man-made and natural spiritual places.
Both the land and Man talking the same language as one.
2078     7103

From Moonbie outside Tamworth. – The sacred place there on its mount; perhaps stumbling …or most likely led to it. A sacred place.
Then I stopped taking the chance. Instead sharing back into the land with the things I had learned thus far…

The ‘v’ we find within the text between the walls of the Sacred Bambara forest.
It’s magic there used to invoke a new beginning.
And it’s meaning in old Egyptian terms for new life…. A new start…. A new beginning.

7150

Attached is the V there in the image being directed to the circle image of the Sun.
RA the giver of new life the bringer of each brand new day.
Underneath at its bottom …..A set of walking legs.
An old Egyptian description of a journey in motion.
Making up the trio of texts used in this message, it reads…..
A NEW BEGINNING ON THIS JOURNEY WITH THE SUN. (RA)…. Used there.

6102

As one column let’s read it in full now.
SUSTENENCE CONSISTENCY GIVEN BY THE GREAT SPIRIT IN THE LAND. THERE ON THE ISLAND A NEW BEGINNING WITH THE JOURNEY OF RA

7341

So who was this great giving spirit gifting the welfare for all those there.
Her name comes up next.
A name shared across great distance and time, shared into the cultures across the globe. Even penetrating and still surviving into the core of today’s twisted lost lore of the Vatican its self.

Maree there in our modern day Mary and mother of Jesus to them.
I did say passed down not understood, instead twisted there today.
To others she is Mu and Murie it goes on and on across the entire globe.
The still strong prosperous First Nations never changing anything.
Known here as Maree as she was then to an early Egypt here in this text ,Honouring her always.

The text symbol ……a hand-held plough.
Means sound value ‘ M’
The three short strokes under it. ‘ iee’
Under that the open mouth symbol we saw earlier in the name of RA.
Sounds out in its singular as ‘Ro’
Together this is the very famous well known text for her name there.
MAREE. Caring Mother to us all

3736

And what is it on this island on its front, and first shown there by the Lion image.
So important attracting both Man and Gods alike. ..Needing the caring of Maree so close.

0779

To understand that let’s go back even further in time to the Narmer pallete. Nearly all of its content is very misunderstood. But from the known history our valued Academia did get one part right.

8084

Here it is again seen at the bottom right corner.
There understood to be representing the highest of places.
Another shrine this one for the almighty himself – RA the cave shrine there on the mount.
His home where the night journey around the planet ends.
The place where the first Rays of light greet the land each brand new dawn.

2140

The same place told by culture today.
The very place where those from the stars first came to breathing consciousness into Man.
Shared to me it, and still there – still working even today.
As it turned out it, it is still functioning as does Stonehenge. Eternal time keepers thru deepest time.

2084    5988

Always their great honesty in sculpture to copy the shrine thru the natural rock formation and into the image they created over there. The Niems headdress from that day on – worn around the head of Egypt’s rulers for the next 2,800 years.

3447

Placing her face there.  The beloved Ruler Khufu. … Placing her image, honouring her into the place of the cave of their home.

2634

The gracious sharing offered by culture in its-self is another huge story.
Lost so far from home but giving her an eternal resting place alongside her God.
Cared for eternally by Mother Maree.
Interesting to note.
Khufu’s fuller name …….Khufu Henutsun Meretities
‘Mere’ – The part in her name. Named after the still living traditional of caring Mother Maree.
So close was this bond of learning from the traditional Australia of the day
Even their Rulers named their children so, in their honour.

In the last column reading side ways.
Traveling out …..the shrine of the traveling conjoined God rulers.
ALL IS DONE WELL.
Said boldly like that, and as it is again shared between the walls of Bambarra.

9518

Bold and meant to be.
DONE RIGHT. Meaning leaving nothing not so. Purified and prepared for God-like inclusion.
Only perfection and purity is good enough there. Boldly said because they mean it so.

1739

Finishing with the up-turned bowl symbol: ….A feminine text for her Hathor Maree
Seen above the square symbol meaning HER SEAT. followed lastly by another familiar text which we read at the start.
The plant bulb growing healthy and prosperous in the fields of plenty. – Heaven to them.
Blurry as they are when blown up to see.
So fortunate I am to be able to share the gift for it all to be read here.

2602

THOTH ACCOUNTS THE DEEDS BEFORE ENTERING THE FIELDS OF PLENTY. PROTECTED BY MOTHER IS THE ONE WHO IS HIS KA (soul) DEN.
SEEN BY THE GREAT GOD ON THE MOUNT. ROOTED THERE GROWING IN HEALTH WITH RA ALONG SIDE HIS HOME THERE. THE LION.
FROM THE SHRINE ON THE JOURNEY BETWEEN THE MOUNTAINS IN THE DUAT. THE CONJOINED PASSING UNDER, THRU THE DOMAIN OF THE GODS.
WELFARE CARING SUSTENENCE GRANTED BY THE GREAT SPIRIT ON THE ISLE. MAREE MOTHER THERE.
CARING FOR THE SHRINE HOME OF THE SUN IN RA.
FROM THE SHRINE, FOR HE CONJOINED FOR THAT ALL IS DONE WELL. JUSTIFEID AND PURIFIED IN THE FIELDS THERE AT THE HOUSE OF RA.

The last line is incomplete and blurry, so is beyond my ability to understand from it.
My humble apologies to be limited so. Many great thanks those reading and following my journey. We walk as one with spirit, and the great sharing emerges as graciously gifted by grandfather there.
