Egyptian Music of the Spheres

Post by Ankhhape on 21.11.08 13:08

A few parallels I have drawn from my studies:

Saturn in
Egyptian is Sabt which means Sirius (Dog Star) which is equated with
Anbu (Anubis) (Greeks took the idea and ran with it calling their Saturday
Kronos (Kyon) which means dog.

The ancient Egyptian calendar is based on the helical rising of Sabt.
Music and the calendar were intimately related. Sabt / Sirius is referred to as the 'first' and the Dorian scale (Named after people
of Kemet) is the first choice of scale that the Egyptians
composed with.

D is Re in our diatonic scale (C do D re E mi etc)
Re is of course the Primeval Egyptian God associated with the Sun
The Dorian mode is the only mode that is of perfect symmetry and
balance with an ebb & flow of the Cosmic Egg shape (all orbits are elliptical)

Nowhere else will you find a diatonic mode that works like this
D E F G A B C D
w 1/2 w w w 1/2 w

w= whole step
1/2= half step

Almost all of the Maqamat (ajna & jins) of Middle Eastern scales are also based off of this Ma'at induced Dorian scale with inclusions of quarter tones making up the number of notes to be 22 (Tarosh/Tarot of the Egyptians? - 22 Qabalic paths on the both Trees of Life & Death?)

Oddly enough, the Pythagorean comma (which I'm sure was a discovery by Tehuti / Thoth) has its octaves spiral out of tune after exactly 7 (Aset) octaves either ascending or descending.

Hi A'nen ,


very interesting parallels and a very interesting subject to further study. Thank 's for pointing it out.
I think music and harmony could be a big part of the picture , sound being vibration and a recognized tool for spiritual ascension.
Related to this subject ,in my searches i came across this musical project of reconstructing and recreating the sound of Ancient Egypt

http://www.harmonies.com/releases/13174.htm

http://www.amazon.com/review/product/B000QZUJ32/ref=dp_top_cm_cr_acr_txt?%5Fencoding=UTF8&showViewpoints=1

and thought is good to share while i find it to be a rare and fascinating sound created by the use of old instruments ,very apropriate to meditate on the Ancient Past
Since i know you also said you have this project of composing Asetian music ,i would like to know more about your own project , or even listen , of course if you want to share

And of course I would like to know about the others , if /and how music is part of their spiritual experience

Thank you

Hellen

I really have to say that this was one of the most interesting topics I've come across in a forum. I guess my question is, with mention of the cosmic egg, how would this tie in with sacred geometry, and concepts like the Golden Mean and the Fibonacci sequence? I am just really curious, and eager to learn more.

My favorite subject of course, though I wish I knew what the real Ankhhape did!

The Egg, the symmetry of Fibonacci, the Golden Mean (different than the Golden Ratio) all find their way back to Kemetic Cosmology, the Primordial Vibration that emerged from the Waters of Nun / Abyss set into motion from the Divine Utterance. Metaphors? Allegories? So many sciences such as Cymatics and the Harmonic vibrations of the Harmonograph show us the symmetry and harmonious relations of this Divine Utterance, we read in Egyptian religion of knowing the 'true' name of someone, the Sufis have the understanding of sound being the primeval force setting all of the material Universe into being.

Musiq is our relation from our captive Physical being with our Higher Self and the Spiritual Plane that the AB speaks of.

Wow, thanks for your reply, Ankhhape. I have also heard that in Native American culture, the eagle beat is supposed to represent the primordial sound of Source. That may be connected to the primordial waters of the Nun, right? It would be interesting to see other cultural parallels with the primordial sound.

Thank you for this post Ankhhape. I wish I would understand more about this subject but I must say that in what comes to sacred music theory I am a complete newbie. Always refreshing to see the mature interests of the users from this forum. Smile
