Hieroglyphics Experts Declare Ancient Egyptian Carvings In Australia To Be AUTHENTIC

Based in Egypt, the continuing research of the Khemit School of Ancient Mysticism is focused on the implications of the evidence left behind for us to discover by the indigenous and the ancients of Egypt.

Drawing on the expertise of hieroglyphics expert Mohamed Ibrahim and Khemit School Co-Director Yousef Abd’el Hakim Awyan (who has studied ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs his entire life), the Khemit School Team worked tirelessly over recent months, deciphering the mysterious (and hotly disputed) set of around 300 early-Egyptian hieroglyphs carved into remote rock walls in bushland near Gosford NSW, on the east coast of Australia.

And the result? Not only are the Gosford ‘Glyphs legitimate, the scribes accurately used several ancient hieroglyphs and ‘grammatical’ variations which, crucially, were not even documented in Egyptian hieroglyphic texts until 2012, immediately disproving all long-standing ‘hoax’ theories. The specific style of hieroglyphs used also provides a linguistic time-frame that places an Egyptian presence in Australia at least 2,500 years ago, while the translated text is even so detailed as to identify the ancient scribes, by name and occupation.

In this history-writing presentation, Patricia Awyan (Co-Director of the Khemit School) and the Khemit team provide details of the team’s research methodology, a translation of the wall’s narrative, and an extensive 3-part interview and expert analysis of the Gosford ‘glyphs featuring Mohamed Ibrahim and Yousef Abd’el Hakim Awyan.

Egyptian Hieroglyphs Written During Ancient Times

The Khemit School Team has visited, documented and completed an in depth study of the now famous “Gosford Glyphs” located near Kariong, about 60 km north of Sydney, Australia

Last February, Beatrice Awyan and I embarked on a journey of discovery to both New Zealand and Australia as I was invited to present a series of lectures in Auckland, NZ and Melbourne, AU. After we announced our journey, we were delighted to receive invitations from Sonya van Gelder and Steve & Evan Strong, to visit the Gosford ‘Glyph site with them to view what many believe to be very ancient Egyptian Hieroglyphs carved on 2 very large sandstone rocks in a remote area in the forest.

Reports of these enigmatic glyphs date back to the early 1900’s, and there has been much controversy about whether they were placed there as a hoax – or that they were in fact, carved by one or more Egyptians in ancient times.

My husband, Yousef and Mohamed Ibrahim were so excited by the prospect of our visit, that they began to study the pictures of the Glyphs (that had been sent to us by Sonya at an earlier date) in order to create a video of their findings — so that Beatrice and I would have something to offer as a gift, in return for this generous invitation.

It was not long before they were both bustling with enthusiasm over what they were discovering! Not only did they believe that they were authentic… but they could begin to understand the story that the glyphs were telling us. We all knew that a much more thorough and in-depth examination would be necessary- but, we went ahead and filmed a short video of their findings to present to our hosts.

After spending many wonderful moments with both old and new friends in New Zealand and Melbourne, as well as being introduced to much evidence that points toward the possibility of a very ancient connection of Egypt with both New Zealand and Australia — we were ready to explore the site at Gosford.

Beatrice and I were honored to learn that we would be meeting respected Original Elder and custodian of the women’s’ lore of the area, Auntie Beve, also known by her tribal name, Goolabeen. (I am sad to report that Auntie Beve passed shortly after we left, in April. Her vibrant spirit touched me deeply, and I know that memories of her inspiring legacy of service and achievements will live on in the hearts of many.)

We were also honored to be accompanied by Aboriginal Star Lore author and lecturer, Stella Wheildon, who has been entrusted with the gift of the wisdom of the Ngarakwal traditional lore, given to her by Mrs. Marlene Boyd, a direct ‘bloodline to country’ descendant of the Seven Sisters Star Lore – the ancient matrilineal culture of traditions, lore and customs of the Bird Tribes of Australia.

The Grandmother Tree

Although Steve Strong was unable to join us, we were happy to meet Evan and have him share some of the work that he and his father had been doing for many years. In fact, we were grateful to be introduced to many fascinating people that day, all coming together in the interest of protecting this site — and honoring its historical and multi-level significance.

As we were led down the path through the forested area, we soon discovered that there was much more to this site than a few rocks with Egyptian hieroglyphs on them. They are encased in a natural paradise, known to be a sacred area, as a meeting place (in separate locations) for both men and women. I was especially enchanted by the Grandmother Tree, a huge leaning angophora tree which has stood tall for hundreds of years, just a few steps from the sandstone rocks blanketed with ancient inscriptions.

As I came around the corner to view the carved script for the first time, I was surprised at my own reaction. They seemed to be alive, and to speak to me from the distant past. I could almost feel the energy of the writers – and based on what I already knew of story they were telling, began to understand their plight.

The sandstone rocks were huge, creating a tall corridor that we were told, once had a roof that covering it. We were guided around the surrounding area and saw many more items of interest, including a shaft that seemed to go deeply inside an area underneath one of the sandstone boulders, as well as more hieroglyphic inscriptions!

The Gosford ‘Glyphs

Beatrice and I were blessed to have experienced many powerful moments that afternoon, as we explored the sacred area before gathering again that evening where we were able to present our film of Yousef and Mohamed’s quick interpretation of the Glyphs.

We were elated to witness Auntie Beve’s reaction, who told us that the interpretation Mohamed and Yousef shared, matched the information handed down to her by the ancestors. She spoke to us of how hard she was working to save this and other sacred areas of Australia’s Original people — from destruction, vandalism or sale by the government.

We made a promise to her that we would return to Egypt, with all the photographs and video taken by Beatrice at the site, to give to Yousef and Mohamed so they could begin a thorough examination, in order to present a much more convincing presentation that we would give to her to help her and others in their efforts to maintain the integrity of the site and its significance to the Original people of Australia.

And so…

The Khemit School dedicates this video presentation, produced by Sadat and Beatrice Awyan, to Auntie Beve and all of the Original people of Australia.

Translating the Gosford ‘GlyphsPart I:

We introduce you to The Gosford Glyphs found in Kariong, New South Wales and we address the question of whether ancient Egyptians had the capability of traveling to Australia.

Part II:

We speak about the authenticity of the Glyphs and how we deciphered them utilizing well known Hieroglyphics texts and other resources.

Part III:

We discuss who wrote these ancient symbols and the message they were delivering on the sandstone blocks, pointing to a possible long term connection between these two ancient civilizations.

Missing European Teenager Found Dead in Malaysian Jungle Under Mysterious Circumstances – Another Missing 411 Case?

Niall Bradley
Sott.net

A Royal Malaysian Police officer points to a map showing the search and rescue operation area

Details concerning the discovery of the body of missing Irish-French teenager in the Malaysian jungle on August 13th point to it being another ‘Missing 411’ case.

15-year-old Nora Quoirin was on holiday in Malaysia with her two younger siblings and their parents, staying at the Dusun eco-resort in Negeri Sembilan state.

Situated at a trailhead on the west side of the Berembun Forest Reserve, the resort is a mere 35kms as the crow flies from Kuala Lumpur International Airport, but is nonetheless surrounded by dense rainforest.

nora quoirin

The Quoirin family had arrived there on August 4th, checked-in to their villa at the resort, then Nora was noticed missing by her father at 8am the next morning when he discovered she was not in her room and that the window was open.

As search-and-rescue (SAR) teams began looking for her, Malaysian officials’ working theory was that she had left the bedroom at some point in the early hours, wandered off and become lost. But Nora was born with the brain defect holoprosencephaly, an unusual condition in which the forebrain is not fully divided into left and right hemispheres.

Nora’s medical condition meant that she was highly dependent on full-time care and, as her mother insists, “would not have wandered off on her own.” Her siblings, who were sleeping in the same room as her, did not notice her leave, and CCTV cameras at the resort did not capture her leaving. Even if she had been motivated to do so, it’s unlikely Nora could physically negotiate the rigors of leaving the resort and trekking through steep, dense jungle. For these reasons, her parents insisted that local investigating authorities consider that she had been abducted.

Police are keeping an open mind about a criminal angle, but they have reported that:

there was no sign of any intruder entering the property. They did not find any footprints inside the villa or forensic evidence to suggest an unknown person was inside. The entire area around the villa where the family were staying is covered with soggy vegetation and the single-track road leading to the resort is covered with mud.

Had someone entered through the window and climbed a flight of stairs to an upstairs bedroom where Nora was sleeping, it is assumed there would have been traces of mud on the floor. It is because of the lack of evidence of any crime that police treated the case as primarily that of a missing person.

In any event, multiple SAR teams searched the area, as far as 4kms away from the resort, for 9 days until she was found on the 13th. By then over 350 people had been involved in intensive searches of the surrounding jungle and the nearby river, using helicopters with thermal detectors, drones, sniffer dogs, and even local shamans. The spot where she was found is described as “particularly inaccessible” by the local police chief.

At one point in their search, they found footprints, but they didn’t lead to her. They deployed cadaver dogs, but those didn’t pick up her scent. They even had her mother, Meabh Quoirin, record messages that were played on bullhorns as SAR teams trekked through the jungle:

Bizarrely, they found Nora’s body next to the Lata Berembun waterfall, which is located 1.6 miles (2kms) from her villa. What’s more, she was found at a site that had already been searched. It’s not that they missed her the first time; her body was naked and it wasn’t obscured by canopy or other vegetation. It was just… not there – and then several days later, just lying there.

Trekkers searching for Nora. We don’t know how close they are to the ultimate location, but if those boulders are any indication, Nora was likely surrounded by them. Large boulders and boulder fields are a common profile point in Missing 411 cases…

Here’s drone footage of the jungle Nora Quoirin – a 15-year-old from London, England, with a pronounced disability – would have had to trek through to somehow end up at that waterfall:

The location is so remote, her body had to be extracted by helicopter. While she presumably would not have been wearing much more than pajamas or underwear, no clothing or personal items have so far been found. Sean Yeap, who was part of the 25-man SAR team that made the shocking discovery, reported that as they approached her:

It looked like she was sleeping. Her head was resting on her hands. But we all knew she was dead. It was very sad and two women in the group did not want to come close and they started crying.”

A post-mortem carried out on the body by a senior pathologist from Kuala Lumpur was initially judged “inconclusive” as to the cause of death. They’re now saying she “probably died of stress and starvation,” but have so far ruled out “violence, abduction or kidnapping,” and have found “no evidence of foul play for the time being”, although tests are still ongoing.

This must be very sad and traumatic for the family. Unfortunately, such sudden and unexplained disappearances happen all too often.

This case has pretty much all of the profile points seen in Missing 411 cases. These are sets of missing person cases that have been re-investigated and catalogued by retired California police detective David Paulides in his Missing 411 series of books. While his books primarily focus on cases in North America, the author notes that such incidents take place around the world.

Sometimes people vanish without a trace; sometimes they are found, but what these cases typically have in common are several or more profile points from among a set of strange but strikingly similar circumstances:

  • the victim had a disability or impairment of some kind
  • the victim disappears from/is found in a location with large boulders or boulder fields
  • the victim ‘wandered off’ suddenly, unseen
  • the victim is found with no clothing or missing clothing
  • the victim is found at or near water
  • the victim is found a substantial distance away from her last known location, in rough terrain, where it would ordinarily be difficult if not impossible for the victim to walk themselves
  • the cause of death is ‘inconclusive/unknown’
  • the victim is found in a spot that had been previously searched

In fact, the only Missing 411 profile points this case does not (as yet) meet are:

  • a weather event (which typically occurs right around the time of the disappearance or during the early stages of the SAR operation);
  • geographical clustering – whether this occurred in a location with past or concurrent unsolved missing persons cases is unknown.

Perhaps researchers in or familiar with Malaysia can clarify these latter points.

I should mention that the specific detail in Nora Quoirin’s case which spurred me to take a closer look was the description of her having been found naked beside water, looking as if she was sleeping. This description matches one of the female cases featured in Paulides’ recent documentary, Missing 411: The Hunted.

In fact, one subset of cases Paulides catalogues in North America is missing hunters, who are typically armed, healthy men, very familiar with the outdoors, and even the specific location they disappeared from. So it can happen to anyone, but the best – and perhaps the only – defense against something like this happening to you or someone you know is awareness of the phenomenon

In the meantime, we can only wish the Quoirin family well as they grieve their daughter, and encourage readers to familiarize themselves with the phenomenon of mysterious disappearances.

Copper bullets were discovered in limestone (age about 70 million years)

In Sevastopol, incomprehensible inclusions were discovered in rock, which is more than 70 million years old.

The head of the enterprise, whose employees discovered the find, Sergei Chumak, said that the stone was mined at a depth of about 100 meters. This breed belongs to very old layers.

A block of limestone began to be cut into pieces and strange objects were discovered in its bowels. “Rossiyskaya Gazeta” reports that they are definitely of artificial origin.

Experts concluded that these “artifacts” very much resemble arrowheads or bullets. Two of them are crescent-shaped and slightly flattened. The metal resembles copper, but for now it is impossible to say for sure without a special chemical analysis.

Other fragments were also found nearby, which in appearance resemble wooden fragments. They have grown quite a long time into stone and oxidized.

Workers of the enterprise noted that this is the first time that entire products have been discovered.

The age of the rocks is approximately 70 million years. Back then, dinosaurs still roamed the earth. The first person who could do something with his own hands appeared only about 3 million years ago. People began to process metal even later.

Author Reimagines the Life and Crimes of Ed Gein as a Novel

Wisconsin serial killer and grave robber Ed Gein’s deviant acts are the subject of author Frank Ladd’s first novel.

I’ve been researching and writing about Ed Gein a long time. I answer questions from visitors all over the world interested in Gein, some hoping to dig up additional facts to flesh out their school reports. If fact, I recently learned that my work is apparently being taught in at least one Canadian high school classroom. For better or worse, that will probably be the pinnacle of my achievement.

I am fascinated by this particular ghoul because his story is horrific, tragic, and, most importantly, he’s local – a gruesome campfire story that really happened right in my own backyard. This isn’t ghosts or goatman. Ed Gein really exhumed freshly buried corpses and filled his farmhouse with the creations he made from those remains.

Related:

While there is still much mystery surrounding the case, it’s a story over 60 years old and there seems to be little new to add. Gein admitted to two murders, and was only tried and convicted of one. Yet there is evidence, including unidentified body parts found amongst his collection, that he may have killed least several other young women. Two hunters who went missing in 1951, along with their entire truck, may be buried somewhere on the Gein property. Some even claim to know where, though most of those stories come second or third hand these days.

Then there is the cauldron that hit the auction block a few years ago with a dubious story that can never be confirmed because anyone who could is long dead.

The Real Ed Gein

I thought there was nothing left to get excited about when it comes to Ed Gein, until I stumbled onto an Instagram account run by Frank Ladd, a writer who set his sights on the Butcher of Plainfield as the subject of his first novel.

Ladd’s account @therealedgein showcases “research on Ed Gein and Plainfield, Wisconsin in 1957 from my novel in progress.” Posts include vintage photos and relics of Gein and Plainfield history, which would be enough to get my attention. But it’s the captions, Ladd’s inspection of a scene in which the object or location in the photo may have been involved in Gein’s story, that drew me in.

Of course, Ed Gein has inspired numerous books, movies and other media over the years. But the historical fiction Ladd is constructing feels different, deeper – a mold-covered and moth-eaten thing exhumed from the past, still stinking of damp earth and worms. The combination of photos and prose with each post captures what feels like an authentic and eerily intimate moment, the isolation and desperation of small town life in mid-century rural Wisconsin that both enabled and drove Gein to seek companionship with the deceased.

This post, written from the perspective of Waushara County Sheriff Art Schley (whose abuse of Gein during interrogation caused the killer’s initial confession to be ruled inadmissable):

Map of Plainfield, Wisconsin showing the location of Ed Gein's property and Worden'shardware store

The western bite of the county felt like a lost cause. The great dead heart of Wisconsin—Sheriff Schley had heard the old saying and found little reason to argue with it. Plainfield put on a good show with its shops and diner and crumbling theater, but the Opera House had closed a decade ago. Same for the Mitchell House. Two filling stations counted for something, he supposed. Worden’s sold most of what notions folks might need, and Gamble’s carried the rest. The bank still gave out subsistence loans. Plainfield scratched out just enough livelihood to call itself a town.

But drive six miles west and the farms sagged. Fields browned with decay. A scatter of turkey vultures kited in the distance, late for their yearly migration, stalking the scent of death. If he kept on county trunk D into Adams county, the pine barrens and wild marsh would swallow him.

Here is another example – Ed’s perspective of his mother’s room which he sealed off after her death, and the grave directly in front of the Gein family plot in Plainfield Cemetery that Ed robbed. The grave is still empty today, though the headstone marking what was intended to be Eleanor Adams’ final resting place remains.

Ed Gein house

The summer kitchen opened to the kitchen proper. Vines and berries on the wallpaper—that’s Ma. Her old lace curtains twitched in the early winter draft. This would always be her house. We kept it for her. How many times she fried tongue or creamed peas at that cook stove, we didn’t care to reckon.

A knot in the board nailed across the hall door showed into the parlor. Her rocking chair didn’t move an inch. Ma was stubborn. We’d stood at her grave until our knees locked and neck ached for a week from all the concentrating and focusing our powers on her cold body. She refused to rise. The woman next plot over was appealing, though. We’d felt something. Maybe the ground was softer there, now that we recall. Early spring of ’46 and still brutal cold.

Here’s another:

Ed Gein wearing lipstick

We lit a candle by Ma’s cloudy mirror. Unwrapped the secret we’d borrowed from Georgia—found among her oddments and sundries, the powders and scenty waters laid atop her dresser. Soft wax packed in a bullet shell. We unscrewed the base and a round stick rose like butter, red for a tart’s lips and dark as dried blood. Tasted of burning fat. Bitter as wormwood. We slid the lipstick across our mouth: a bright slippery gash. It was still our face staring back. A wash of moon through sooted lace mottled our skin with shadow, like the tattooed savages we’d read about in magazines, island tribes who ate their own.

You’ll notice throughout the posts that anytime Gein is referring to himself, Ladd uses “we” instead of “I” – an interesting choice I’m eager to explore.

With his work, Ladd is weaving the historical details and desolate reality of life in Plainfield into a compelling narrative of Ed Gein’s state of mind as he committed the crimes that still scar the town and its people. I feel like I can swipe a finger through the dust and grime accumulating on the garbage piled up in Gein’s house, and smell the mildew on the discarded human remains mouldering within.

If these posts are any indication of what to expect from the novel, I’ll be first in line for the pre-order.

Follow @therealedgein to keep up on Frank Ladd’s work and Ed Gein research.
