Our up close sighting in Big Sur California. 1978

Introduction and warning:I’ve only shared this experience with family and friends. After stumbling across this and a few other Big Foot subs, I’ve decided to share this experience on all of the subs.

This long read needs some introduction in order for the reader to understand the geographical area and circumstances of the sighting. This sighting caused events immediately thereafter which I have also included. If you don’t enjoy reading, bail now.

Big Sur is a mountainous area in south central California situated on the edge of the Los Padres National Forest (which is almost 3000 square miles large) and over looking the Pacific Ocean on the western side.

Three friends and myself (ranging from 16-18) who lived in nearby Salinas, had planned on driving to a secluded spot in Big Sur that we called “Top of the World.” This particular area of big Sur wasn’t frequented by people except for some occasional vehicle traffic from locals or the rare tourist or hiker during the day and was void of Humans at night. At night there was of course critters (bobcat, fox) and even the occasional mountain lion. No people, no cops, perfect location for four party animals.

We drove down the Pacific coast highway and turned off on the Old Coast Road which winds up into the mountains (the Old Coast Road is a hard packed dirt road and former primary route in and out of Big Sur prior to the construction of the Bixby Bridge).

Our spot, “The top of the world,” was right off and above the dirt road with an amazing view of the Pacific Ocean. The spot was directly accessible from the old dirt road which had steep cliffs on one side, and the other a very deep ravine with the Bixby creek (or little Sur river, I don’t remember) running through it.

Well, the party never even started because of the event I will now describe. I might add that the events of this night are burned into my memory. It was almost traumatic. With the exception of some (exact) conversation, I remember everything like it was yesterday.

Steve parked his mom’s Chevy Vega at the base of the incline leading to our spot, grabbed some beers out of the hatch back (which we left open) and walked halfway up the very steep incline. The distance between where Steve’s car was parked and the top of the hill was maybe 30 yards

What happened next all took place in a matter of seconds but it seemed like an eternity to me.

We were sitting next to each other in a row facing the Pacific Ocean. Behind us was the crest of the hill about 15 yards up. Beyond that, the dark and foreboding forest. looking out at the Pacific, talking little and just taking in the beautiful view whilst sipping our beers, we got quiet and maybe a bit reflective (I know I did). It was beautiful.

At one point, in the midst of silence, something weird happened (Later, when all this was over, we talked about this strange feeling that none of us had ever experienced).

What happened was this: all of a sudden, we all looked at each other; and without speaking a word, as if every one of us was receiving an unspoken message, or intuitive response to nature or a gut feeling, we simultaneously looked around behind us, at the top of the hill; this is what we saw:

There, at the top, not 15 yards away, was a creature. It was simply standing there, observing (us). I will try my best to describe what I (we) saw despite the fact that it was almost midnight (which added to the creep factor) and our eyes were well acclimated to darkness by then.

This “being” was not human. That I know for sure. It just stood there, completely upright, arms to the side, facing in our direction. Whether or not it was looking at us I couldn’t tell because unfortunately, due to lighting conditions and the angle (I guess), I saw only the outline of a head and body; a very hairy head and body that was dark in colour. No facial features that I can remember. There was very long “hair” (fur?) flowing down from the head but there was an opening where a face must have been. All I saw was darkness between the hair on the head. No eyes or other facial features. The head hair seemed to flow down and mix with the rest of the hairy body. I distinctly remember the arms. They were long but seemed to fit the size of the body. I don’t recall them being overly long like an ape but they also had long flowing hair; as did the torso and legs. It was tall, maybe seven feet but that could have been because we were looking up at it. It was also wide. It gave me the impression of great strength. It made absolutely no sound.

To be fair, I soaked all this information up in probably about one or two seconds. Reason being, an immediate feeling of “fight or flight” kicked in as soon as I (we) turned and saw this creature. Anyone that’s been in combat or other life or death situations knows what I mean with fight or flight. “fight” wasn’t an option (obviously) so we did, once again simultaneously, what most humans would do: GET THE F*** OUT OF DODGE!!

If anyone’s interested in the aftermath, which almost cost all of us our lives, feel free to read on…
We ran. I stumbled and fell because of the steep incline and the guys made it to the car before me. I didn’t even try to get in, rather, I simply jumped into the open hatchback. Steve started the Vega and gunned it. We only got two corners away from Mr. Foot before Steve lost control and we went sliding over the side of a cliff. Thankfully, The first 20 yards of the drop was gradual and was overgrown with thick underbrush that slowed the car to a stop before dropping off the steep cliff and into the creek below. We all climbed out, thanking our luck and climbed back up to the road.

Now we had to make a choice. Walking back in the direction we came would be only three miles or so back to highway 1 (the Pacific coast highway). But that direction would also take us by the last place we saw Mr. Foot. The Unanimous decision was to walk the other direction which was 5x as long to reach the highway. That’s how scared we were.

It took hours but we made it, alive and healthy with a story we could share with friends and family for the rest of our lives.

As Paul Harvey always said:

And now, you know the rest of the story…

A most excellent and well told story.

3 Most Recent Mysterious Jungle Discoveries That Cannot Be Explained

Unexplained Mysteries
Dec 19, 2020

3 most recent mysterious jungle discoveries that cannot be explained. Today, we take a look at these 3 most recent mysterious jungle discoveries that cannot be explained.

The dense tangle of the jungle conceals untold secrets and it’s depths and mysteries are likely not fully known and understood by a single person on this planet—not even the native tribes that have spent their lives surviving by mastering the resources hiding within the danger.

Legends abound as to what exactly could be hidden far out of sight within the Amazon, and some of these seemingly-fantastical stories have their basis in fact and first-hand accounts.

3 most recent mysterious Jungle discoveries that cannot be explained. Today, we take a look at these 3 most recent mysterious jungle discoveries that cannot be explained.

With so much of our planet being made up of jungle and forest land, it is unsurprising that there are secrets and mysteries concealed within these beautiful areas. From finding new animals who live alongside us, to uncovering artifacts, the possibilities are boundless as to what we could stumble across within the trees.

One can only hope and wonder as to what and who we may find in the future, but for now, we can only reflect on the phenomenal secrets that have been uncovered from within the Jungles.

Thank you for watching!
Thank you to CO.AG for the background music!

Ahhh, mysteries!

 

Emela Ntouka

“…the Emela Ntouka. Found in the same general Congo Basin area as Mokele-Mbembe, this beast is said to be the size of an elephant, hairless, and semi-aquatic, with a long horn on its nose. It is sometimes depicted as a Triceratops sort of beastie, but has also been interpreted as an unknown species of rhino.”

Mom showed me this video of her security camera in the living room. 3:30 in the morning this u shaped light thing was floating up and down all for a few hours on Tuesday, no lights were on and it’s pitch black. Wasn’t there this morning though. She’s kinda freaked out. What could it be? from r/ParanormalScience

This is really pretty interesting, especially, you know, if it’s real, eh.

Doesn’t seem to be ball lightning, mainly due to that u-shape, but I suppose it could be.

What do you think it is? Do tell…

An excellent werewolf testimonial has been posted at r/dogman

Posted 14 hours ago by u/foxxservo86

The Oklahoma Dogman

It was 1991. The summer was warm. I was five. My Granny had just read from “The Three Little Pigs” and had put me down for a nap. I was never afraid of wolves. So the strange, hulking beast in the back yard was just a Big Bad Wolf.

That is how my mind remembers Dogman. In reality, he was just like a walking wolf, his legs… that is what I noticed. I say He because the Big Bad Wolf is what I thought I was looking at.

This is what I remember of my very real, very disbelieved encounter. He was about 25 feet away from my window. I got up to look out, and he was in the tree line, walking around. I called for my Granny, to tell her the Wolf was here for the pigs. Nobody ever believed my five year old self. But I remember to this day, Dogman was real and he was spotted in East Tulsa/Catoosa in the early 90s

My great grandfather was the man that shot and killed a 300lb cougar in Roger Mills County after being told by every university and biologist there’s no way they could exist in western oklahoma.

It was stuffed and put in a display case in the Black Kettle Museum in Cheyenne. You can go see it today.

My grandpa (County Commissioner) used to refer to “Catamounts” being around very matter-of-factly. As a kid I thought he was talking about cougars.

He was not.

Asked him what a “Catamount” was and he proceeded to describe a bipedal nightmare creature identical to descriptions of “dogman”.

Had a family friend named Lynn Kenner. Textbook woodsman. Lived out in the boondocks near Cheyenne. My father and I went turkey hunting with him back in ’97. Lynn brought an AK. Asked him why. Said it was for “close encounters”. Blew it off as a joke.

Years later it all clicked.

Edit: Seems they’ve moved the contents of the museum to the Washita Battlefield National Historic Site right down the road. This is a good thing. It’s a really cool place and I encourage anyone interested in Native American history (or who just wants to see a cryptozoological success story) to stop by.

1941 Missouri UFO Crash

The Fear Channel
Jun 18, 2016

A pastor in the rural town of Cape Girardeau, Missouri receives a late call to perform last rites over the victims of a plane crash. He arrives to find a scene far different from what he was told on the phone. The “plane” that downed was not of this earth, and the dead certainly weren’t human.

I had not been aware of this one until my buddy Al found this last night. Might well be true. Hopefully time will tell if it is or not.

NEVER Before Seen Video INSIDE The BENT Pyramid of Egypt! Lost Civilizations & the Ancient Egyptians

Bright Insight
Jan 4, 2021

INCREDIBLE! First ever video footage INSIDE the Bent Pyramid of Egypt! Researchers have waited more than 5 decades to see what the interior structure of the Bent Pyramid looks like. This video was filmed on November 30th, 2020 and is among the first to ever show the public what the interior of this incredible ancient site looks like. This pyramid had been closed to researchers and the public up until June of 2019, and very few people have had the privilege to enter this incredible ancient site.

Incredible is right! Just excellent.

Well, Jimmy has beaten my friend Next Anyextee to the punch with this. Next is just finishing up the editing of his video on his own exploration of the interior of the Bent Pyramid. Next studied under my dear friend, the late, great John Anthony West and I can hardly wait to see his piece! Not to take anything away from Jimmy, who I think is an awesome fellow, as regulars know!

There’s a nice discussion goin on here on ATS, as well.

As the planet warms Siberia’s melting tundra begins to give up its secrets from the past , who said climate change was all bed.
The most recent find from the region of the Russian Republic of Yakutia is this well preserved Woolly Rhino believed to be 2-3 years old which died around 20,000 and 50,000 years ago probably from drowning.

Preserved in ice for tens of thousands of years, this juvenile woolly rhino still has its thick, reddish-brown hair, all of its limbs, and most of its internal organs, including its intestines.

To date, this furry little creature is the best-preserved woolly rhino found in the Arctic Yakutia and may even be the most intact ever discovered anywhere in the world.

The form of the Beast.

New at themonsterblog:

The Beast of Bray Road

Dating back to 1936, citizens of Elkhorn, Wisconsin, in Walworth county as well as Racine and Jefferson counties have been witnessing a beast.

Reported to be 6ft tall, with grey and brown fur, the Beast is said to have a wolf-like face, shiny yellow eyes, pointed ears, and run and walk on all fours or hind legs as well as kneel like a man. I am reticent to call it a werewolf as shapeshifters are rather outrageous even for the cryptozoology community, but that is the imagery that comes to mind.

The first reported sighting was in 1936. 30-something Mark Shackleman was the night watchman for the St Coletta School For Exceptional Children outside Jefferson. The school had extensive grounds that included wide, open fields that held several preserved Native American burial mounds. Crossing the fields one night when doing his rounds, Shackleman saw a shadow digging into one of the mounds, much like a canine would. The Beast then stood to six feet tall and looked at him, it’s large body covered in dark fur and smelled of rotting meet. Shackleman took a step back, startled, and the beast abruptly turned and ran off into the woods. Shackleman reported seeing it again the next night, but never again.

Due to some what conflicting descriptions of the beast, some cryptozoology enthusiasts believe the beast to be a misidentification of some other cryptid, such as “Eddy” or “The Bluff Monster,” a Bigfoot like creature in Wisconsin. Others suggest a Waheela, or “bear dog;” as well as a Shunka Warakin. Some have even suggested due to the similarities and proximity that The Beast Of Bray Road and The Michigan Dogman are the same animal.

The Beast has been reported to act aggressively, but not outright violent and hasn’t reported to have physically harmed anyone. It had also been reported to charge vehicles, even chase people, but breaking off the chase before catching anyone, suggesting the theory that some have that it is territorial or guarding something, which could also explain the reason that many sightings are concentrated on a 2 mile stretch of farm road.

In 1991, 18 year old, Doris Gibson, reported driving down Bray Road during a storm when she felt her tire hit something. Thinking she had hit a small animal, she got out of her car to investigate only to find nothing. She looked to the side of the road, saw the form of the Beast and rushed back to her car. As she sped away, she said the Beast jumped on the trunk of her car but slid off in the heavy rain.

In the fall of 1989, Lori Endrizzi was driving down Bray Road on her way home from her job as a bar manager, when she saw a hunched figure in the road eating road kill. She flipped on her high beams to see it clearer and realized that whatever it was, knelt like a man and held the carcass in its hands like it had human-like elbows. The creature then stood and started towards her vehicle that had stalled out as Lori panicked and struggled to get it to start. When the engine successfully rolled over, she floored it to her mother’s house. “I didn’t sleep that night very well,” she said in her interview with Monsters and Mysteries in America.

The town of Elkhorn has supposedly had so many sightings of the Beast from the 80’s and 90’s that the Elkhorn Animal Control is rumored to have a file on the creature. The vast uptick in sightings is what had the now defunct Walworth Week assign junior reporter, Linda Godfrey, to investigate and report on the sightings. Linda published her article “Tracking down ‘The Beast of Bray Road’” on December 29th, 1991 and would then go on to write “The Beast Of Bray Road: Tailing Wisconsin’s Werewolf” and become the foremost expert on the subject.

One story Godfrey tells regarding the Beast is about a group of boys heading home from sledding, that was told to her by a friend of her son’s that experienced it first-hand. On their way home, the boys saw a large furry creature drinking water from a creek, thinking that it was a dog, they decided to go pet it. When they approached the creature, it stood, snarled, and took chase after the boys, breaking off after they cleared the tree line. Which, while terrifying, is in line with many reports.

Steve Krueger has told a consistent story on both Monster Quest and Monsters and Mysteries in America. Myself being a natural skeptic, once recognizing him on M&M from Monster Quest, made sure to track down his MQ episode, initially thinking that I could rule him out as a credible eye witness if his story changed. It hadn’t in the 4 years between episode airings, which lent more to his credibility in my eyes, albeit the story being more sensational on M&M due to the nature of that show. In November 2006, Krueger, a DNR worker had removed a the carcass of an 85lb doe from a road in Holy Hill, Wisconsin. As Krueger sat in the cab of his truck filling out the required paper work for the removal, he felt his truck shake, thinking it was simply the wind, he ignored it. A second harder shake caught his attention and he looked out the back window of his truck to see a shadowy figure standing at the tailgate of his truck. Krueger shined his flashlight through the back window to get a better look and saw a 6ft tall animal with a wolf-like face, reaching into the bed for the deer carcass he had just removed from the road. Startled, Krueger threw the truck in drive and sped away allowing the Beast to drag the doe off the back of his truck.

Wolf Biologist Peggy Callahan believes all of these sightings can be explained as simple misidentification. “People could definitely misidentify a wolf jumping up on its hind legs,” she tells Monster Quest, in a 2010 interview. Callahan believes that folklore and superstition combined with misidentification has created the tale of the Beast and influenced sightings. “As for the traditional werewolf, I’m going to tell you it doesn’t exist.”

Linda Godfrey on the other hand, does not believe this is a simple case of misidentification and advocates for witnesses saying “I really believe that all of these witnesses have seen what they say they saw. […] Anybody who drives around much in Wisconsin has seen so many deer, and so many bear, and these other creatures that they would have a hard time mistaking something like that for a completely unknown animal.”

Sightings over the years have dwindled in frequency but recent sightings have been reported to MyRacineCounty.com with Danny Morgan’s January 2018 account of seeing the Beast while driving home from Lake Geneva, accompanied with the cell phone photo that heads this post; and Ron Rice’s 2020 account of seeing the Beast in the town of Lyons while delivering fertilizer.

If you are interested in learning more about upright, Wolf-like hominids, I highly recommend sifting through Linda Godfreys blog at Lindagodfrey.com. She has compiled sightings on there since 2009, but has been inactive since May of 2020.

Came across these and thought i’d share here. An astrophotographer from California has taken a couple of amazing photos of the International Space Station in front of both the sun and the moon. The station only transits between the earth and both moon and sun for only a few seconds from Earth’s perspective every day. So just the timing for the pictures is pretty incredible by itself.

I don’t really know what else to say other than that the pictures are fairly breathtaking.

petapixel.com…

Photographer Andrew McCarthy is known for shooting incredible astrophotography images from his backyard in Sacramento, California. He recently added two more jaw-dropping images to his portfolio: ultra-clear views of the International Space Station (ISS) crossing the Sun and Moon.

Given that the ISS whizzes across the Sun and Moon in less than a second from the perspective of someone on Earth, capturing a clear view of the transit is not an easy thing to do.

McCarthy first managed to capture the ISS transiting the Sun on Tuesday, October 6th.

“This shot was captured simultaneously with two scopes, one with a white light filter for ISS details and one with a hydrogen-alpha solar telescope for surface details,” McCarthy writes. “By blending the images together I get a crisp, detailed snapshot of the transit.”

The following week, on the morning of October 14th, McCarthy captured the ISS crossing the face of the Moon.

“[A]fter spending hours scouting for the right location, I set up my gear on the side of a road hoping to capture something I’ve never seen before. The ISS, illuminated by daylight, transiting a razor-thin crescent moon,” McCarthy writes. “Something about the way the illuminated ISS straddles the crescent gives it a sense of depth lacking in my previous transit shots.

“This was captured by recording high framerate video during the pass, and stitching together a full mosaic of the moon after the pass was completed, which was then blended with shots captured before the sun rose to get the ‘Earthshine’ you see on the dark side of the moon.”

Spectacular!

Paranormal Musings: The Philip Experiment

Katie of the Night
Feb 20, 2019

Me talking about paranormal crap for 16 minutes straight. This MAY be interesting to you if you think paranormal, parapsychology, seances, spiritualism, psychokinesis, poltergeists, ghosts, spirits, demons, or any other crazy stuff is cool.

The Philip Experiment was a parapsych experiment in which a group created a pretend ghost and then contacted him via seance. It worked, so what does this mean?? This video is a little overview about the experiment and what I get out of it. I’d love to have a discussion so lmk your thoughts! I decided to film this video without seeking out any other youtuber vids about this experiment, so hopefully mine measures up with only internet research under my belt!

I just learned of this today and it is certainly thought provoking. And wonderfully Fortean. Ive always been fascinated by the very concept of tulpas, let alone their existence.

To think that our minds have the ability to create, out of the energy of our thoughts, actual physical manifestations that appear in our reality, is just awesome and wondrous.

What could the mechanism be that allows that to occur? I have seen monks do some amazing things, but not really tulpa creation, per se, unless the things they do can be called tulpas, as well.

As the girl in the 3rd video notes, the majority of seances are really just entertainment, to be polite, but, are ‘real’ seances tulpas, too, created by the minds of those present and not, in fact, entities from a nearby dimension?

I would love to hear your thoughts on that important enigma.

A couple is fishing on Pike Lake in Wisconsin when a sudden heavy storm comes through. After the storm clears, the couple encounters a huge bird on the lake. Was this a Thunderbird? One morning a woman driving the New Kent Highway in Virginia encounters a giant bird with a wing span broader than the two lane highway. Another driver on the same route in Virginia encounters what is described as a gargantuan bird standing over 8 feet tall. In Wayne County, New York witnesses observe a huge flying cryptid in the skies over children during field practice.

Marat/Sade (1967) + subtitles

Fidelis Scardanelli
Oct 18, 2012

subtitles: English, Portuguese (Brazilian), French, Spanish, Turkish, Greek, Italian
Turn ON subtitles with button CC on the bottom of the video.

Complete title:
The Persecution and Assassination of Jean-Paul Marat … Performed by the Inmates of the Asylum of Charenton Under the Direction of the Marquis de Sade

Cast:
Ian Richardson as Jean-Paul Marat
Patrick Magee as Marquis de Sade
Glenda Jackson as Charlotte Corday
Susan Williamson as Marat’s mistress
Clifford Rose as Asylum director

production:
Royal Shakespeare Company

Directed by:
Peter Brook

Based on the play by:
Peter Weiss

The Marquis de Sade is locked in the Charenton mental hospital and decides to put on a play. His overseers agree as long as he follows certain conditions. He writes and directs the other mental patients in a play based on the life of the Jean-Paul Marat. As the play progresses, the inmates become more and more possessed by the violence of the play and become extremely difficult to control. Finally, all chaos breaks loose.

Awards:
Italian National Syndicate of Film Journalists 1969
Won Silver Ribbon Best Director — Foreign Film Peter Brook
Locarno International Film Festival 1967
Won Special Mention Peter Brook

Whether it’s based on reality or not, Marat/Sade is an ambitious idea. The Marquis de Sade (Patrick Magee), often wrote and produced plays during his incarceration. Whether he made one about Jean-Paul Marat is debatable and this is certainly not based on anything Sade wrote. Marat/Sade is actually a filmed version of a play written in the early 1960s (and fully titled The Persecution and Assassination of Jean-Paul Marat As Performed by the Inmates of the Asylum of Charenton Under the Direction of The Marquis de Sade) by the Royal Shakespeare Company. Ian Richardson plays the bathtub-bound Marat, and Glenda Jackson plays his assassin. The only problem, of course, is that in the world of the film, Richardson is a lunatic paranoid and Jackson is a narcoleptic depressive. This makes for some strange interpretations of history, mental illness, heroism, and politics — and where we draw the lines among all these things. In the end, Marat/Sade comes off as more of a joke than a think-piece, unfortunately. We laugh at the participants instead of pitying them. We don’t think about history and its interpretation: We think instead about what kind of royal person would willingly subject themselves to a presentation of this play. The chaos that erupts is completely expected. Better idea: Have a group of royals present a play inside a mental institution, and see how the inmates respond…

Wow, this is simply fabulous.

Saw it for the first time tonight. I need to watch it again! And then… again!

i wonder what they are dreaming about

max1461
What’s really cool about this is that cephalopod (octopus, squid, etc.) intelligence evolved completely separately from intelligence in tetrapods (which includes primates, dolphins, crows… basically any other intelligent animals you can think of). Cephalopods are very, very far away from us on the tree of life. For context, you and a starfish are more closely related than you and an octopus. The last common ancestor of humans and cephalopods was the so-called Urbilaterian, the hypothetical first animal with a left-right symmetric body. This animal almost certainly had, at most, an extremely simple nervous system, without anything resembling a brain.

All this is to say that the fact that this octopus appears to be dreaming means one of two things. Either

a) dreaming is a very, very old thing indeed, going directly back to the Urbilaterian. This would mean that almost every animal, from insects to starfish to sea slugs to newts, is likely to have the ability to dream in some capacity or another (unless they have specifically lost it by evolutionary simplification).

or

b) dreaming evolved entirely independently in cephalopods when they developed greater intelligence. This would suggest, at least, that there’s something very fundamental about dreaming related to intelligence itself, which causes it to emerge independently when sufficient intelligence arises.

Needless to say, either of these outcomes would be really very cool.

Many researchers feel that, due to the unique DNA of cephalopods, as opposed to other life forms, they originated not on earth, but elsewhere. A proposition that I personally find both fascinating and plausible.

 

hole on Mars

A Hole in Mars : What created this unusual hole in Mars? The hole was discovered by chance in 2011 on images of the dusty slopes of Mars’ Pavonis Mons volcano taken by the HiRISE instrument aboard the robotic Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter currently circling Mars. The hole, shown in representative color, appears to be an opening to an underground cavern, partly illuminated on the image right. Analysis of this and follow-up images revealed the opening to be about 35 meters across, while the interior shadow angle indicates that the underlying cavern is roughly 20 meters deep. Why there is a circular crater surrounding this hole remains a topic of speculation, as is the full extent of the underlying cavern. Holes such as this are of particular interest because their interior caves are relatively protected from the harsh surface of Mars, making them relatively good candidates to contain Martian life. These pits are therefore prime targets for possible future spacecraft, robots, and even human interplanetary explorers. via NASA

Large Red UAP-UFO Transiting the Moon – 20 December, 2020 – 4:52pm

jimisroomUFOtv
Dec 21, 2020

Was taking some evening shots of the moon with the Nikon P900 when this large red object flew in front of it. The first clip is the close-up, and the second is the original version. Made sure to check Stellarium.org to check for satellites. None were transiting the moon at the time. Most were above it and were geo-synchronous. (As soon as I set up the tri-pod, a helicopter started circling endlessly. When this happens its extremely annoying and its hard for me to keep from spouting four letter words. This explains the two sound dropouts.)

Very cool!

The Eye of Horus

Sohaila Hussein

22h Shared with Members of JAW Grockles

THE EYE OF HORUS – WADJET

The Eye of Horus (also known as wadjet, wedjat or udjat), is an ancient Egyptian symbol of protection, prosperity, restoration and good health.

Arguably the most recognizable symbol of Ancient Egypt, the Eye of Horus references the myth of the god Horus, who, in a demonstration of sacrifice, loses his eye during a heroic fight.

Following the battle, Horus’s eye is miraculously restored by another deity, referencing the concept of restoration.

The Eye of Horus thus metaphorizes the battle between order and chaos.

Jewelry and amulets were often carved in the shape of the Eye of Horus, as the symbol ensured wellness and protection for the wearer.

In a funerary context, the eye offered a safe passage to the afterlife for the departed.

Likewise, Ancient Egyptian and Near Eastern sailors often painted the eye on the brows of their vessels in order to guarantee a sound voyage.

The Eye of Horus is similar to the Eye of Ra, the creator god, and represents many of the same concepts of power and protection.
