When people start to learn more about secret societies, they quickly learn that a pyramidal hierarchy is best for the masters because it lets each part of the larger building work well and consistently. And, just like a stone pyramid, the virtual pyramid of hierarchy doesn’t shake or fall if one cell is taken away or changed. Those on the lower levels of the building can do their jobs without being affected by or worried about the higher, unreachable levels they may not even know exist. Students of secret societies often try to figure out who has the most power at the top of the power pyramid. This author thinks that few researchers are able to explain the identity and nature of that overarching body in a clear way. People have tried to show that the top people are Masons, Jewish cabalists, white supremacists, Sirians, or Reptilians, etc. Even though some of these theories are interesting, we can’t for a second forget what the symbols are trying to tell us.
Ireland And Egypt And Secret Societies
Most of the time, the symbols of secret societies come from two places: Ireland and Egypt. Keeping this in mind, the author thought it made sense to look for the origins of the supersecret steering order in those places. Egypt is interesting to us because, toward the end of the 18th dynasty (about 4,000 years ago), an important and controversial astronomical event caused the high priests of Egypt’s temples and mystery schools to have different ideas. At that time, there were big changes going on in the sky.
The sun moved around. That is, it went from being in the sign of Taurus to being in the sign of Aries. In the astrological language of the initiates, god (the sun) was moving from the sign or house of the Bull (or Cow) to the house of the Ram (or Lamb). And this kind of change was supposed to be shown by changes in the sun priests’ rituals and ceremonies. You can tell that the Levites respected the change by looking at how they celebrated Passover.
In his work, the scholar Ernest Busenbark reminded us that the Solar Cults were more powerful about 3,000 years ago, during the so-called “Age of Taurus.” During the transition into the Age of Aries, Egypt was ruled by the “Broken Kings” of the 18th dynasty, who were the ancestors and descendants of Amenhotep IV. They were also the Solar Cult’s most important leaders (Akhenaton). Scholars Ahmed Osman, Moustafa Gadalla, and Ralph Ellis have skillfully and controversially shown that many of these people were models for later biblical characters. Here are the most important nobles and royals of the 18th dynasty. (The dates of the kings’ reigns are estimates that could be changed.) Modern historians praise this harsh, intolerant, self-important, and rebellious dynasty, but researcher William Bramley is right to say that they were senior priests of the prehistoric Dragon Court, or “Brotherhood of the Snake.”
These lords and their top ministers and priests used a tree and a snake to represent their long family trees. Even now, when we make family trees, we still use the image of a tree. The snake was a good choice because it not only showed how time moves, but also how these families have kept a secret tradition alive through the years. This sacred tradition dates back to the time before the flood. Those who were initiated into it used the serpent as a sign. The snake or dragon was a symbol of kingship, power in the community, and spiritual mastery. During the corrupt rule of the Broken Kings, it was against the law for Egyptians to worship any god other than the sun god Aton (or Aten). The Atonists shut down the big temples by force, started their monotheistic cult, and let people from other countries into the country.
They had centers at Gizeh, Amarna, Avaris, Tanis, and especially at Heliopolis, where the powerful Solar Cult had been in place for thousands of years. Even during the theocratic rule of the god Amen Ra (Amun), who was mostly worshipped at Thebes, the center of the Egyptian universe, the priests of Heliopolis were very powerful.
Under Pharaoh Tuthmosis IV (1419–1386 BC), they became more powerful. He wasn’t born into the royal family, and it seems like his father, Pharaoh Amenhotep II, who rode a chariot, didn’t like him. Scholars today agree that the priests of the sun cult at Heliopolis chose Tuthmosis IV to sit on the throne. He was just one of many sons that his father had, and not much is known about his life or rule. Tuthmosis IV, like his father Amenhotep II, was a warlike pharaoh. He was also one of the first people to go to war without being provoked outside of Egypt. Because of his aggressive attacks, Egypt was full of slaves and people from other countries. Because of this, there was more marriage between different groups during his rule than at other times. During this time, Egypt was very wealthy and had many different kinds of people living there. History tells us that when there is a lot of wealth, decadence and nihilism are not far behind. When competing with other priesthoods, a single pharaoh’s desire and actions to show how powerful and god-like he is can help one priesthood. The Heliopolitan priests wanted to make the king they chose more famous so that he would in turn make their god Atum Ra more famous (later Aton). The good things that a strong, powerful pharaoh did in Aton’s name would make his reputation even better. Tuthmosis IV died before he was 30. He left his son Amenhotep III, who was also of mixed blood, in the care of the priests when he was very young. Amenhotep III, who was the model for King Solomon in the Bible, could have only been between 2 and 12 years old when he became king of Egypt. Because he was so young, other people took over running Egypt from the throne.
The most likely candidates were his step-parents, Yuya and Tuya, who were Israelites. Scholars know that they are Israelites, and researchers like Moustafa Gadalla, Ahmed Osman, and Ralph Ellis are as sure as we are that Yuya was the biblical patriarch Joseph, the previous pharaoh’s (Tuthmosis IV) “dream analyst” and “man with the many-colored coat.” Ellis says that this Joseph (Yuya) was put in charge and was the second most powerful Egyptian after the pharaoh. He was also the richest person in the world. Before we talk about what the word “Israelite” really meant, let’s talk about how powerful Yuya and his family were. Being made Amenemhet – “Amen is the Head” (1991- 1962 BC). He was the first ruler of the 12th Dynasty, but no one knows where he came from. Some scholars think he was the model for Abraham, the patriarch in the Bible. But if this is true, Abraham would have been in Egypt before the official dates for the Hyksos to take over. Once we know that the Hyksos did not come from outside Egypt, the problem is easier to solve. They were not from Egypt, but they were not from Upper Egypt either. The groups that came to Egypt during the 13th dynasty may have had ties to the Hyksos Kings, who ruled the noble families of Lower Egypt. They may have been invited to come to the land. Later, when the dynasties changed, it seems like these guests were seen as unwelcome or even as invaders.
The pharaoh made him viceroy and vizier, which gave him full power over the whole country. He and his wife were probably related to the Hyksos kings from earlier dynasties and the Levites who lived in Avaris at the time. Even though most Egyptians looked down on and even hated the Hyksos, the upper class and priestly class of the Hyksos were accepted and respected in pharaonic circles. In fact, it’s possible that most of the pharaohs of the 18th dynasty had Hyksos blood. This is very important because new evidence shows that the Israelites and Levites from Judeo-Christian history were the Hyksos people who moved to Egypt. The author Laurence Gardner thinks that Yuya was related to the Hyksos kings. Even though he puts the time of the Israelite Abraham too far back in time (to Pharaoh Senusret I of the 12th Dynasty), he does acknowledge the existence of a Royal Hyksos “Dragon Court” and the bloodline that he says continues to rule the world. He says that all of the pharaohs of the 18th dynasty were from the same “Dragon” family. After his daughter Tiye got engaged to and married the young Pharaoh Amenhotep III, Yuya’s (Joseph’s) power grew and became more stable (1382-1344 BC).
This happy marriage joined the Israelite/Levite (Hyksos) line with the Egyptian line. We don’t have much doubt that Amenhotep’s second wife Tiye was Hyksos, even if Amenhotep himself wasn’t. This Israelite named Tiye was the second wife of Pharaoh Amenhotep III. She was not as important as Sitamun, his sister’s wife, who was called the “Great Royal Wife.” Sitamun was the real queen of Egypt and had the right to be there. Because Tiye was not of Egyptian blood, she was not an official “daughter of Amen,” and her children had no legal right to the throne. Amenhotep III broke the most important rule of Egypt when he married Tiye and put her ahead of the royal wife. Before this apostate’s rebellious act, the Egyptian throne had always been passed down through the royal female line. This break with the rules was the worst thing that could have happened to Egypt. Tiye didn’t have the legal right to rule, but that didn’t stop her from having a lot of power over her easily swayed husband and running things from “behind the throne.” She was adamant that her son, not Sitamun’s, would be the next pharaoh. To do this legally, she had her strange son, Akhenaton (Amenhotep IV), marry Sitamun’s daughter, Nefertiti, who was Akhenaton’s half-sister. This marriage was just a way for him to get the throne.
In the 12th year of Akhenaton’s rule, Nefertiti disappears into the void, and her name is violently erased from many monuments. No one knows for sure if she really believed in Aton or not. There is no doubt that the evidence shows that she was disposable. Akhenaton made sure that his brother Smenkhare would rule after him, even though his wife Nefertiti had more legal right to do so. This shows how much his mother, the daughter of the biblical patriarch Joseph, made him dislike the Egyptians and favor the Israelites.
The Israelites who took care of Amenhotep III as a child also had two sons and a daughter named Tiye. Aanen and Aye were their names. Revisionist Egyptologists think that the second son was the model for the mythical and made-up relative of Jesus named Joseph of Arimathea.
Aye was a very important person during the 18th dynasty. He is known as a major reason why Akhenaton, Smenkhare, and Tutankhamen were able to take their places on the thrones. Ralph Ellis has even said that Aye, who was also called Aya, was the same person who the Bible uses as a symbol for the god Yahweh. He uses etymological information to back up his single thesis. (See Queen of the Scots: Scota).
Tiye wasn’t too worried about whether or not Egypt would accept her foreign-born son as king. As long as he got married the right way, he had to be accepted as the real pharaoh.
It also looks like her husband, Amenhotep III, who was also known as King Solomon, was a very romantic and passionate person.
He always looked for women to hang out with. His main goal in life seems to have been to satisfy his physical needs, and his Israelite queen doesn’t seem to have gotten in the way of his bad habits. In fact, she used them. Because of this, Amenhotep III had close relationships with many Egyptian and foreign princesses. These contacts made sure that relations with foreign governments were good. Because of this, Amenhotep III and Tiye’s rule was known to have been peaceful and happy. But because Amenhotep III was so good at seducing women, we have to wonder about his overall ability as a ruler. It might be possible, though a little scary, to think that his clever wife and her group of Israelites took over his official duties. In other words, if we’re looking for a time during the 18th dynasty (other than Akhenaton’s personal reign) when rules were broken in a big way and there was suspicious insider-intrigue that may have caused the country to become unstable, this is the time to look. Even though official history says that Amenhotep III’s reign was very stable and he had good relationships with other countries, we get the feeling that the terrible things that happened in the future had their roots in the less obvious political intrigues of his time. Even though this pharaoh was very powerful, there was something “wrong” with him because he gave his common-born wife so much power over him and his country.
Records and pictures show that he was both strange and spoiled, and that he liked to dress like a woman. If we believe the evidence that seems to show that Amenhotep III ruled with his son Akhenaton for a long time, the situation is even more worrying. If this is true, then we know for sure that it was Queen Tiye who was in charge. Officially, the history books say that Tiye was in charge of Egypt for a short time after Amenhotep died and before her son Akhenaton became king. Solomon was so “wise” that it wasn’t hard for a sneaky, power-hungry woman from a low family to get her way when he was in charge. Given what Dr. Velikovsky said, we wonder what Jewish and Christian people of today would think if they found out that their famous King Solomon was a transvestite. Archaeologists have been trying to figure out why Tiye’s grave was in such bad shape for a long time. As one of the most famous and powerful queens in history, they don’t understand why there wasn’t a big funeral for her.
Except for Tutankhamen’s, her parents were given the most luxurious tombs, and even her servants were given good places to be buried.
Tiye’s body hasn’t been found, that’s true. Smenkhare, who was Akhenaton’s younger brother, was found dead in her place. His body seemed to have been treated with a fair amount of respect. We can guess that Tiye didn’t get a proper burial or a fancy tomb because Egypt and its people were in a bad way after her great and holy husband and son were done ruling. It looks like the good people of Egypt decided that she didn’t belong in the Valley of the Kings.
Even though Amenhotep III was a girl, he and his wife, Tiye, had six children. Their first son, Tuthmosis, who was Akhenaton’s older brother, was the one Amenhotep III wanted to be the next pharaoh. The young boy died in a mysterious way, so Akhenaton, who was also called Amenhotep IV or Amenophis IV in Greek, became pharaoh. Strangely, Akhenaton is not in any of the pictures of his father or any of his other brothers or sisters. This seems to show that Akhenaton was not his father’s favorite child. He may have been rejected by his own family when he was young. Not only does he look like the proverbial “ugly duckling,” but he also seems like an unwanted black sheep who keeps getting moved around.
Immanuel Velikovsky, who was a revisionist historian, was pretty sure that Akhenaton slept with his mother, Tiye. Given how close the Tuthmosside pharaohs and the Levites of Avaris were, we can figure out who Akhenaton grew up with. We think that Akhenaton, who was based on the biblical Moses, felt more at home with the strange Levites, whose beliefs were so different from those of most Egyptians. Since his mother Tiye was an Israelite and his father’s step-parents were also Israelites, it’s not hard to guess where the young king was staying during those years.
