“Circumnavigating the World in an Original Figure Eight” (Article) By Dr Derek Cunningham with Steven & Evan Strong

Circumnavigating the World in an Original Figure Eight

By Dr Derek Cunningham with Steven & Evan Strong

Before embarking upon our fifth paper reviewing the newly discovered Australian Ros engraved rock we feel obliged to first address a criticism levelled at us by some who have already voiced their disappointment. Normally we prefer to be bold in tendering opinions and conclusions before all the evidence is in, but on this occasion it was a task beyond our capacities and outside the reach of any other archaeology we have previously examined.

We began this particular journey quite literally ‘dancing in the dark,’ as there is no accredited expert, academic, course or textbook to consult. The reality was that our opening articles were more a plea for assistance than a report on the engraved rock. In that respect those articles have served their purpose, we have now been joined by five researchers, of which three have Ph.D’s in overlapping fields. But it doesn’t end there, photographs have now been sent to us of rocks that have previously lay hidden in private collections. These rocks from other continents show in some cases similarities in coloration and the style of engravings, and some of the owners have also now offered to send their prize artefacts in the hope that they will add more light and direction to our journey.

Despite our initial reluctance to declare with absolute certainty that the Ros’ stone contains evidence of a worldwide civilization, direct comparisons to other engravings and other archaeological sites has now made us confident enough to present some tentative opinions as to the geology (where the rock came from) and what the engravings mean.

When Dr. Derek Cunningham’s contribution towards understanding what was engraved on Ros’ rock first came our way, I was at a loss in deciding whether it was too good to be true or the final key in a search that began close to five years ago. It made no difference either way. Derek not only has consistently studied multiple artefacts around the world, he had also identified a specific non-linear shape (in fact the only circular pattern on the stone) as being another astronomical symbol. Impressing us deeply, the offered explanation links directly to a description provided years earlier to us by Ramindjeri spokesperson Karno Walker.

The oval shape on the stone it is argued to relate to a shape drawn by ancient Original navigators as they sailed around the globe – Dr Cunningham’s interpretation overlaps this argument by stating that the single oval is consistent with the oval being half of a very specific figure 8 that is drawn by many ancient cultures.
What Derek could never know was how pivotal any mention of a figure 8 is to all our research. It is, quite literally, our starting point, and without this number nothing would have eventuated. Before presenting any of Derek’s new work, we need to backtrack five years to the first time I heard talk of Original mariners circumnavigating the oceans of the world in a figure eight. Members of the Ramindjeri Tribe, in particular Karno Walker, were aware of the contents and theoretical base that underpinned our first three books. The seminal shortcoming of what we had written to that point was that we had so little on the ground archaeology of our own. To be honest we had a theoretical base that was lacking in rocks, artefacts and sites.

Once accepting their call, ceremony and receiving a banner from which to research (Wirritjin-Black-fella White-fella Dreaming), we have entered a transitional stage in our research. It has been literally ‘raining Original archaeology’ since my first introduction into Old Ways, so much so that we now have a backlog with a waiting list spanning back over a year.

And it was this talk of circumnavigating the globe that was the incentive to travel thousands of kilometres to meet the Ramindjeri, it is that same figure eight which set us on the path we now travel. It made so much sense, if indeed as Original Elders insist, that “all peoples of the world come from us,” then the Original people had to sail from Australia to an assortment of destinations throughout the world.

We have already discussed in some detail Original artefacts, genes and bones found in India, Malaysia, Japan, Siberia, Spain and throughout the American continent, which certainly adds weight to Karno’s belief ancient Original mariners sailed the oceans. However, the missing piece in this puzzle is an actual map marking out the sea-routes taken.

Derek has begun to fill in that gap. Consistent to the approach Richard and Judith champion, Derek has scrutinised the surface even more closely and is confident he has found that same figure-eight sea route Karno first alerted us to. Derek had already found a commonality of inclination and slope between Ros’ rock and for the first time has shown that many artefacts and prominent archaeological sites spread throughout the world are linked to the exact same ancient design – Stonehenge, The Great Pyramids, the Atacama Giant, the geometrical symbols at Lascaux and Chauvet Caves all appear to show the same consistent archaic writing with a set of very specific astronomical values converted simply to an angular array.

What is less known is the non-circular shape of numerous stone circles found around the world, such as Longs Meg and Callanish Stone Circle appears to link to a very specific shape of the Milky Way, which is the shape the Milky Way takes when it is drawn onto a Mercator-based map of earth.

Here the discussion taken from Derek’s recent book The Long Journey (400,000 Years of Stone Age Science) shows that all the world’s major archaeological sites link to an ancient astronomical map. This map combines elements of the archaic writing style to a map of the stars that is expanded three-fold and redrawn back onto earth so that the stars start to take the shape of the Earth’s continents. In doing so the produced map not only explains the origin for multiple stones with similar linear patterns etched on them, the data also explains the location of the world’s most impressive ancient archaeological sites, it also explains the various myths and legends told by many ancient cultures, the most famous being the Greek myths surrounding the constellations.

Linking to the description of the figure 8 the Milky Way now plots a helical structure over Earth, with the cross-point marking the religious sites of the Himalayas. Within the UK the non-circular shape of stone circles in the UK matches the shape of one-half of the drawn Helix, with in one specific case the east west line dissecting the famous stone circle matching the direction drawn by the ecliptic on the star map.Capture
With this prior data acting as a template Dr Cunningham thus overlayed the shape of the drawn Milky Way that was drawn four years prior to our first published data on Ros’ Stone. This template has been used previously with great success to analyse the layout of the Great Pyramids, Stonehenge Stone Circle, and Callanish Stone Circle. When the template is applied to the newly discovered Ros’ Stone, the result is overall a good match.
In the first part of the study of the egg-shaped pattern found etched on Ros’ stone an attempt was made to align it to the helical structure of the drawn Milky Way and to then compare the angles extracted from two very short lines found within the drawn pattern. Here it can be seen that the values drawn are consistent with the 6.511 draconic month period between eclipse semesters.


This is important in the context of this particular study, as this 6.511 degree value is the exact same value by which the Celestial Equator was offset in the drawn astronomical map 4 years ago.
In the next image, the stone at the same angle shown above places the shape of the drawn oval over the shape drawn by the Milky Way, the exact same drawing used previously to explain the significance of the locations of the various Himalayan religious centers.Capture 2

There is insufficient space here to describe the entire background surrounding the drawn stellar map and how it links to ancient myths and legends. These results are discussed in substantial detail within Dr. Derek Cunningham’s book. The key point here, and in this is by far the most important result, is that a fixed theory that uses the exact same astronomical data each time once again is able to explain a discovered artefact that is etched with both linear lines and in this case a single egg-shaped image. In this case the proposed theory is unique in that it provides not only an explanation for the location for the stone, but also the same explanation that described the importance of the location where Ros’ stone was uncovered can also explain the markings found on the stone. Finally and perhaps of equal importance for this specific site, the analysis put forward here is based on an entirely new analysis of the structure of the Great Pyramids of Egypt.

As stated in the prior two studies Ros’ Stone has three sides etched with linear lines. Within the astronomical theory the lines on archaic stones are drawn to represent – using angles – the astronomical values used by astronomers to predict eclipse events and to measure time. There are the circa 1 degree daily angular movement of Earth as it travels around the Sun 13.66/27.32 day sidereal month, the 9.3/18.6 year lunar cycle, the 6.511 draconic (nodal) month period between eclipses (this equals 6 synodic months), the 11 or 33 day difference between the lunar and solar years (as there exists an eleven da difference it is only after three years that astronomers are provided the first potential reset point), and the 5.1 degree angle of the moon’s orbit relative to earth’s ecliptic plane
As before the third side is found to match this theory

Here the value 23.4 degrees equals a range of astronomical values for example the latitude of the tropics, the angle of earth’s tilt.

49 out of the 60 analysed lines (82%) align to the standard list, and 56 out of 60 (93%) align to angles previously seen on other archaic stones.

New Contributions
What needs to be factored into the confirmation of Karno’s claim is that we are working with another researcher who has been analysing ocean currents and historical accounts and even though his work is far from complete, he too has become familiar with the same figure eight configuration. Confident that the chances are very high that a least one, and more than likely two sides of the rock are claimed to be maps of the oceans or stars, finding the actual shape of the path taken is in keeping with the message on the rock we have interpreted so far.

Undeniably some critics who wilfully totally neglect to even begin a basic search of the now substantial body of evidence showing entirely consistent data see for example prior work undertaken on the Sacsayhuamán temple complex, and the geometric Lascaux paintings will still allege Dr. Derek Cunningham is mistaken and merely a maverick straying off on a tangent that has no substance. But if so, there are others more than willing to join in his research. Dr. Reinoud de Jonge has been researching all manner of evidence that contradicts so much of mainstream history and is equally convinced that there are maps with latitude and longitude highlighting important locations frequented by ancient Egyptians engraved into this rock. Dr. Reinoud has been researching many aspects of ancient history with a particular emphasis on ancient Egypt, and for all intents and purposes has independently come to the same conclusion: we are dealing with maps.

Dr. de Jonge was very specific and Pacific when analysing what he feels is a map on Side 1. “I believe the “horizontal lines” are latitude lines … from top to bottom, and the other lines provide important sailing routes (directions) in Melanesia. I see the SE sailing routes to the islands of New Caledonia (+33), to the New Hebrides (+9.3), and to the Fidzji Islands (27.32. 13.66, -18.6). Sydney is at the left hand side, again. An ancient, interesting artifact! At the far right side the sailing routes to the Samoa Islands are shown, as well as the routes to the Gilbert Islands and Ratak Islands above the equator.”

So there we have it, two academics and another at an earlier stage in his research, have all arrived at their interpretations from different perspectives yet share one common number (8) and continent.

Once again we must tender our apologies to those seeking certainty as this is still a work in progress. However this is clearly another step forward, but there are many more to take before we can cobble together a reasonable understanding. The next taken in our quest to determine the significance and messages engraved into this rock leads us back to another seemingly unresolved geological conundrum, of which there has been one fascinating development.

The Rock that “Does not Look Natural for the Place.”
In trying to establish the make and source of this rock we have previously canvassed and dismissed a wide variety of possible candidates and came up empty or less than convinced. From our perspective any lingering issues as to what and where the stone comes from no longer applied from the moment we first sighted Derek’s most recent offering. We alone have had the privilege of sighting and handling the engraved artefact. None of the other researchers have so far seen the stone, thus any provided information is best provided blind, and then only after the researcher has sent his theory the stone is tested. This was the approach used for Dr. Cunningham’s astronomical alignment test. Now Dr Cunningham has provided a possible solution to the source of the stone. Remnants from meteors typically are not brown, but it appears that if they are sufficiently old a chemical change will occur where the surface crust present on the meteor will brown with time. Shown below is an example of such a meteor remnant.

Capture 6

At this point Dr. Derek Cunningham states that the next step must now be to analyse the chemical composition of the surface to better determine the exact origin of this stone, and how it obtained its unusual coloration.

Professor X also agrees and has not ruled out that the rock is a naturally occurring stone modified deliberately by high temperature, a stone with an off-world origin, simply a natural stone modified naturally by high temperature or perhaps river chert. “I cannot say anything more about the Kariong rock other than I cannot identify it with any degree of certainty … however this rock “does not look natural for the place.” Of course nothing is absolute, and until either of these experts can personally inspect the rock, and that is about to happen, we will not make a final statement. Before that inspection everything is possible, all the way back to first nomination Professor X made, when suggesting the rock could be a very hard type of chert laying in a river-bed hardened by the abrasion and pressure of running water.
Upon Closer Inspection
Preliminary in nature and tentative in setting further direction we have made a few measurements, comparisons and tallies that may be of some assistance in making sense of this rock. We are certain that the percentage calculated and repeated is something of immense importance then and now, but at this stage all we can conclude is that the technology used in engraving is sophisticated and the script has mathematical symmetry, intention and will make a fascinating read, if only someone could find the ‘how to manual’ with instructions.
There may be a sizable degree of uncertainty ahead in our research, but at the rock-face some observations and measurements lead on to some rather interesting maths.

There are 10 pecks/dots, 44 engraved lines of varying width (Side 1, 23. Side 2, 7. Side 3, 15.), 54 points of intersections that create 74 shapes, which could in total constitute no less than 172 pieces of information. That tally doesn’t take into account many deliberate nuances which may include the length and variation in width of cut which is particularly evident on Side 1, the spacing of gaps between the connecting lines on Side 2, the placement and width of each peck/dot, and many contributing elements we are yet to find.

As for the complexity of information shared and the manner of presentation, our quest to unravel this cryptic load began with a percentage comparison between the surface area of Side 1 and Side 3, and we did the same again when comparing the number of lines on the same two sides.
Side 1 is larger than Side 3 and has a flat rectangular area that was engraved upon which measures 7.2 sq. cms. and has 23 lines, while Side 3 has an area of 4.69 sq. cms. and 15 lines. What is either an incredibly rare coincidence or evidence of a deliberate yet subtle arrangement at multiple levels, both comparison rates came out at 65%. The surface area of Side 3 is 65% that of Side 1, so too the number of engravings on Side 3 is 65% the quantity of those engraved on Side 1. To claim this is a random event, when dealing with archaeology that is so obviously a mystery, runs counter to everything else on the rock.

Capture 7

But there is more in synchronicity and on display, the three sides with engraved lines and pecks/dots exhibit an exactness of interplay in alignment and sequence in narrative that is quite sublime. The diagram we have compiled, even at first glance, supplies good reason as to why we have sequenced the rock-faces, simply because the engravings in Side 2 flows out of Side 1 and points towards Side 3. What is deceptive is that it is only when held in the hand can anyone appreciate the precision and strength of blade, and a precision in placement of each of the seven lines on the side that seems, at first glance, barely worth a second-look. All seven engraved lines are exact to the millimetre in connecting to another line on Side 1 or Side 3. Some lines link up to another line while others to intersection points, everything was done to a plan with immense skill using technology that breaks every …
Waiting for Original Guidance
The most compelling reason as to why we have not been forthcoming with our customary fervour in championing an opinion substantiated by archaeology and inference, is simply because we have no choice and are not at liberty to do so. We have never been hesitant in stepping forward irrespective of the ‘collateral damage,’ but it must be remembered we only stride forward into the breach once given Original guidance. That mandatory consent has not been given, and until Original Elders, Custodians or Spirits of the Old Ways have inspected this rock and any associated Lore, all we can do is assume and hope for the best.

Knowing that Original Custodians of Lore have the only direct link to the ancient history of this continent, we are still prepared to offer a provisional take on some of the proceedings we are investigating. In doing so we also reserve the right to add or subtract at our Original guide’s leisure after all meetings and inspections are completed.

For us the pivotal truth so far uncovered relates to the Original fact that the rock is extremely sacred, “very, very ancient” and was used in ceremonies. No less relevant, in fact probably more so, is the dominance in Original mythology and history of the off-world destination of the Pleiades. When factoring our knowledge that there are Elders who rightly make claim to be custodians of rocks that were not created on this planet, all of these accounts suggest that the reason that the technology is so advanced by any earth-bound standards is because it came from elsewhere in the cosmos.

Derek is confident that the markings on the rock are elements that constitute remnants of an ancient world civilisation. Both Derek and Raymond believe that the engravings on this rock represent the measurement of degrees, possibly latitude and longitude, and were used in earthly pursuits. Whether marking out the passage across the seas or skies is a difficult call to make at this stage, but one Evan and I are willing to make. Even before Derek spoke of detecting astronomical values on the rock we were of the opinion that this engraved narrative was as much about where these star beings came from in the distant past, as it was about who did it and what it means. Given further time and consideration our opinion may change, but as things stand at present we believe this rock exhibits a technology that cannot be part of mainstream traditional historical accounts involving any type of hominid, whether sapien or Neanderthal. That being the case it seems this is yet another example of an Original problem that has an Original solution, look into the skies for an answer and apply an ancient truth: ‘as on top so below.’

Our next article will be the culmination of the five that preceded and will include even more data that hopefully it will resolve any lingering doubts or questions. Now is the time to call upon the ultimate authority on all such matters. Once the proper Original Elders and Custodians pass the judgment upon the rock and all that is associated with it, we will finally have the whole truth and nothing but the Original truth.

“The Big Picture”

The Big Picture

Since posting the first article on Tracy’s tablet there has been a steady stream of criticism, sometimes verging on a torrent, decrying both the authenticity of the tablet and credentials of our claim that this document is a treaty marking an agreement between Original and ancient Egyptian people.

A common complaint relates to an observation noting how the positioning of certain glyphs is faithful to a set Egyptian formula used when creating funerary tablets. Those with doubts will point to certain times when changes in script and setting, which they assume took place somewhere in Egypt first, spread throughout the land to reinforce their objections to our proposition that the tablet is a treaty. The reality is that all of these references to past patterns and progressions in hieroglyphs most assuredly occurred, but as to where the inspiration was in most, if not all occasions, we claim the ‘jury is still out’ and should remain so until the Australian case is completed. Knowing, as we do, modern humans, spirituality, arts, notions like gender and species equality, along with all the hallmarks of noble behaviour began in Australia, the idea that the formal systems of writing is also part of the Original design is entirely consistent.

2014-10-03 12.30.11
Back to the tablet and an observation passed in our previous article. There are six people given a name on the tablet, three are probably depicted to be laying inside each sarcophagus, two, Isis and Osiris are seated each side of the Ankh and the sixth member of this ensemble is mentioned, but never depicted. Are these the six people/Gods acclaimed as being responsible for negotiating and bringing to fruition this sacred accord between two nations? Or perhaps, the three fallen were from the first family that set up a structure in Australia and gained permission, and this document could be an accumulation of important players that spanned centuries? It may be the reason that Hor-Nakht was not engraved into the sarcophagus simply because he was alive when the document was formally presented and consented.

Allegations that this is some form of a latter-day copies fall short on many levels. All recent replica of the Stela of Senebef are lighter, smaller in height and width than Tracy’s tablet. In what only adds to its unique character, the cement/plaster is a mixture of many materials while all other replicas along with the original are made from one substance. As stated earlier, because of when this tablet was sealed off between the early convict walls, it cannot be a post-Cook import, all that remains relates to the meaning of this relic and sequencing of both the Egyptian stela and subsequent copies. Which came first, Tracy’s tablet or the Stela of Senebef, and of course the totally interrelated issue as to what function this document performed and the events chronicled, has to also be addressed.

Fundamental in resolving the narrative and nature of esoterics of the two tablets, is the establishment of precedent and/or principle influence. When it comes to the genesis of the written or engraved language, in the simplest terms, we believe ancient Egyptians came here with none or some and when they left they had much more than when they came. When we say ‘we’ believe, that pronoun and order of Egyptian novice tutored by an Original teacher is a rather recent addition to our understanding of Original dynamics and history solely due to Aunty Bev. Until Aunty Bev spoke about Egyptians for the first time which was recorded on a You Tube, Egyptians in Australia Part 2, we had never spoken of or were aware of the truth Aunty Bev first revealed. When speaking of the Egyptian presence and involvement in creating some of glyphs at Bambara which she confirmed, she threw an unexpected extension into the mix. According to Aunty Beve, before the Egyptians came, the Original people were already engraving symbols/hieroglyphs and had their own language.

That comment set us off on the course we now travel, and without her guidance I would have kept assuming whoever was involved in engraving the Bambara Glyphs, the only group that could definitely be ruled out were all past and present Original tribes. As radical as Aunty Bev’s statement may have appeared when she revealed this ancient truth, the recent re-appearance of Ros’ rock onto the scene will eventually be responsible for new theories on the evolution of first language spoken by modern humans. It is no coincidence that this intricately engraved rock was found on Dakinooong land, Aunty Bev’s tribal land, nor was it unexpected to find unchallengeable evidence of an ancient technology that can only just be matched today. Not only is the rock one of the hardest in this country and bears markings beyond the province of any steel blade of today, there is a structured arrangement of markings engraved into the surface that is not random and meant to convey meaning. Containing 51 lines, 56 points of intersections and 74 shapes and excavated from geology that affords a date running well into five figures, this rock is proof that the Original people were writing thousands of years ago using technology that only came onto the scene less than a hundred years ago.

2014-07-24 15.53.52
Once again, Aunty Bev was right, and if the Original people were the first to write, along with so many other debuts, does it not make sense to assume this was one of the many teachings given by the Original teachers to their Egyptian students?

A bold statement to make, but before objecting through citing a bevy of experts, it must be pointed out that this claim made by an Original Elder of high standing is supported by quite a deal of archaeology. Irrespective of suggestions of fraud, fakery or other devious ploys ascribed, there are three pieces of archaeology containing Egyptian glyphs, and all of them were found in this country, not Egypt. The tablet has nearly 300 hieroglyphs from the Middle Kingdom dated at around 3,900 years ago, the three walls at Bambara have around the same number of symbols as the tablet and definitely bears clean passages of proto-Egyptian (along with the more ancient Original script) which is dated at between 5,000 to 4,700 years, and there is another collection of 15 hieroglyphs, again proto-Egyptian, and of the same older date. There are other sites we know of which are also works in progress, but what we do have is evidence of a span of 800-1,100 years and two different styles of hieroglyphs found at three different sites. As to the inspiration and location, well that is not as ‘cut and dried’ as most may assume.

11) 2nd set of Glyphs - Copy
“All the Same” (Big Bill Neidjie Original Kakadu Elder)
It’s not just us, there is absolutely nothing original in our belief that the Original culture and Dreaming was the source behind the ancient Egyptian obsession with the esoteric and the stars. One of the very first books we read that set on us on this path is an absolutely stunning reference book, but can be a tough read in parts.

Nevertheless, there is so much in accord with Original Old Ways and Lore in Robert Lawlor’s book Voices of the First Day, and is a book deserving of respect with an ample stocking of Old Way information. One of the focal themes addressed was the same Original-Egyptian interaction we are dealing with now, and just as it is in our case, Lawlor saw the same Original precedence. “The Egyptian religious practises, zoomorphic pantheon of gods, burial customs, concepts of death and rebirth, sorcery, magic and medicine all have their origins in the primal culture of the First Day.”

Throw in writing plus all the insights and discoveries already discussed and that is a full load and reasons enough for the Egyptians to sail so far and risk so much, and we suspect that is the real narrative immortalised on a tablet found in Australia.

The Observations of an Amateur
Guilty as accused, we are not professional academics, nor experts in any particular field, but we have plenty of advisers of the highest calibre and ample practise. Nevertheless, apart from spending days and days leafing through the pages of 3,010 hieroglyphs supplied in Ray Johnson’s proto-Egyptian handbook and a sprinkling of other references, we bring no academic training to this exercise. Despite our deficiencies we still have eyes, patience, Ray Johnson’s book and an acquired skill in mix and match, that, we have in abundance. Our goals are not ambitious, we are only seeking generalities and common themes not a literal account, but for some no matter how modest our goals and skills learnt on the job, our lack of appropriate training is an automatic disqualification from all academic games.

Moreover, by acknowledging an 800 year age span (or perhaps more) between the tablet and Bambara, differences in script are inevitable. Undeniably this is true, but we see this a bit like translating Shakespearean English, and in that respect there will be crossovers more often than not. And who is to say that the same transition in styles we see in Egypt was applicable in Australia, perhaps here they remained more faithful to the older form and accepted less change. Variations between countries and culture will evolve no matter how much there was a mystical concord, simply because one society is naked and nomadic the other clothed city-dwellers and farmers of the land.

Despite those hurdles and our limitations we do intend to provide commentary of the opening passage. By our tally there are 38 hieroglyphs in the section we studied, of which we found complete to partial counterparts in the proto-Egyptian manual on 32 occasions. A fair proportion are direct matches, and with a recognition rate of 84% we are confident some generalities can be tended for further consideration.

2014-10-03 12.51.46
For us, knowing that all stages of Egyptian hieroglyphs are contextual, establishing an exact opening scene is of paramount importance in setting the tone and choices made as the narrative continues. Of the first four glyphs three are an exact match, in the case of the third glyph which we deduce to be a sacred book containing instructions and orders to facilitate this treaty gaining consent, we have taken some liberty when nothing else came close. The base line/rectangle is most probably a book, of that we are confident, but the staff extending from the middle of the book with a knob/circle on top is more difficult. The closest comparison was the proto-Egyptian glyph 2147, which is exactly the same but upside down, and since they are sailing to the ‘bottom’ of the planet where the waters spin in the opposite direction, we suspect this reversal is possible.

Put this together and we read this as “give,” King of Upper Egypt,” “book with instructions” and the “beginning” or “mission.” From our perspective this appears to be the beginning of something of some gravitus, a serious occasion necessitating royalty, gifts and a crusade or perhaps mission abroad.
As to where this destination may be, further down the first column is an enigmatic entry that we thought was without parallel until sighting it again in the first column of the tablet. We first saw this glyph on both walls at Bambara and it always had us intrigued, simply because the only entry in the manual that came remotely close has two crests, one at each end, while the glyphs on the walls have three peaks with the third one positioned in the middle. The two peaked variety is referred to as the “etheric region,” and we felt since this was a story about people and beings coming to this sacred land we assumed that the addition of a third peak referred to the land of Australia. Being a sanctuary where people lived in accord with Dreaming and, as Robert Lawlor so succinctly stated, in harmony with the Voices of the First Day, the idea this glyph was enhanced to represent the most holy of holy lands seems a fair call.

Just beneath the ‘etheric region’ is a glyph with which we have an exact copy in glyph 1877, (“white house, treasury”) perhaps this could refer to some sort of focal Egyptian building/embassy, which does seem likely as there is another less grand glyph that may represent a more basic dwelling further down this column. There is good chance the glyph for “throwing stick” (2450) sits below the simpler building, which of course, is very much an Australian icon and in keeping with the geography.

The top part of the second panel has also been scanned and compared, and again we will supply a brief report, which as before can be an account of standing in heaven or heaven on earth. “Lord” (2628) “person,” (2364) and “father” (1527) introduce some of the personnel on board or in attendance, who were warmly greeted upon arrival into this land as evidenced by the hieroglyph “I welcome you.” As to where these people/souls (ka) were journeying to, we run into the same issue of semantics.

Our interpretation, and to be honest we were surprised we were able to find any match like this and particularly something that was almost identical, of what is a seminal glyph can be read both ways. “The 3rd heaven where the beings are the masters of their own Ka,” can be interpreted as being heaven. However, on closer inspection it could more easily read as a place of esoteric wisdom where the “beings” as opposed to Gods, souls, spirits, half animal/human deities, the departed or any other descriptor of those on the other side, understand the nature of their soul while incarnated. The reason we are called human “beings” is to denote our species and that we are living and of flesh and bone. Beneath this glyph is the symbol of a plain rectangle, upon which is the custom of engraving/drawing a variety of motifs that denote the make or purpose of different boats, this proximity could suggest they sailed across the “horizon” in a boat to the “3rd heaven:” Australia.

Other glyphs beneath include “Lord,” “thee” “beseech,” “strength,” “chemical” and our selection from the second column concluded, somewhat symbolically, with “Serpent Goddess.” The Rainbow Serpent is the most potent Original spirit, and to see the hieroglyph representing ”beseech” nearby, is a portent for good mystical relations in this Original and Egyptian alliance, which after all is the main reason this alliance came about.

Tying up Loose Ends
There is one loose end of which we have just become aware, and in our defence was primarily due to our endemically poor mobile reception and me not having pen or paper due to miserable conditions.

All our early conversations with Tracy were on the mobile. No matter who we talk to it is well known our reception is utterly appalling. Whatever the weather, we have to stand outside and negotiate within one small circle where the reception is at best bad. All going reasonably, words can be heard sometimes, and bits and pieces are nearly always sufficient, but not in this case.

Our first conversation was an interesting pastiche of crackles fades and words, in what only added to our discomfort it was decidedly moist and windy standing in the open no more than two metres from shelter. Tracy was explaining how the tablet was found during a challenging gust and we later found out when she said “was to be Phillip’s farm” was lost in the fade out and was received as “was Phillip’s farm.”

This may seem a major issue, but it is a trifling and symptomatic of the horrid mobile reception we endure. The farm was offered to Phillip, but he turned it down in preference to a site at Parramatta, so the farm was then taken up by Sir John Jamieson. The dates of construction are almost identical and completed before the turn of the century, and all the issues raised still apply, all that changed is that the principle residence was at Penrith on the Nepean River. What Tracy has supplied is an attachment beneath her testimony detailing the site and archaeology.

The crucial part of this discovery comes down to the moment of first discovery, everything revolves around the seconds before and after it was first exposed since being hidden. Having given the exact details as to where and when, and to make sure there are no more fine details with frayed edges due to a poor connection or a cloudburst, I have asked Tracy to explain exactly what happened as it was actually discovered, and the trail of misfortune once this archaeological treasure was reclaimed.

Over to Tracy
“Back in the late 80’s a friend of our family was doing some labouring on a property out off Mulgoa Rd, Regentville. There was some clean up and demolition work being carried out. As some old out-houses had become unsafe.

Knocking down a wall they noticed a slab in the wall cavity. Taking it out, the young labourer showed it to the boss not knowing whether to toss it. To which the boss said, “It’s rubble, chuck it out,” which he did.

Tossing it into the back of his ute, where it smashed. On his way to dump the building rubble he stopped at his home to get some lunch and again to a look at the slab. Finding it rather interesting, he tried to plaster it back together and screwed a hook in the back to try and hang it on a wall. It was too heavy and couldn’t be held on the wall.

A long while later he told me what he had found and brought it round to show me. I was intrigued and immediately started to try and get someone to look at it, to no avail. Subsequently again it was broken out in the backyard and our friend threw it into the rubbish bin. When he left, I was told he had thrown it in the garbage, so I ran outside to retrieve it.”

We had suggested to Tracy that we could cut down the last series of drops and mishaps to something like retrieving the artefact from the tip, which was what I originally thought she said during the wind, rain and intermittent reception. Such a take was still truthful, sanitised and less painful. Make no mistake we believe the Original spirits were involved in arranging circumstances and choosing the right people to be part of this, and we are lucky that despite the damage the artefact still remains in semi-tact. But it seems the poor thing was dropped so many times by people with good intentions and bad hand-eye coordination.

The tablet was more than likely fashioned in Egypt and brought here, that much is certain, whether a funerary tablet or treaty is in most ways immaterial. We begin with an agreed base, that the ancient Egyptians brought this tablet here. We also note the Khemit School have released some very convincing research showing evidence that establishes the authenticity of the Bambara hieroglyphs.

The Egyptologists involved make a very compelling point in showing how an arrangement of three signs is extremely unusual, yet grammatically correct, and totally beyond the capacities of a ‘deranged Yugoslav’ or any amateur 101 students. I really felt that point alone was the final nail in the hoax theory. As to whether all or some of the glyphs are proto-Egyptian, that is still to be decided. Knowing that the Original people had an ancient system of writing before the Egyptians first came, and that this is validated by Aunty Bev’s statement and Ros’ rock, as to whether the engravings are completely down to Egyptian hands and inspiration, from our perspective that seems highly unlikely.

The analysis of the plaster aggregate will reveal more, as will the readings of others we will approach. The tablet is Egyptian that is definite, as to what function it serves, we are certain it is a treaty. If it isn’t it makes absolutely no difference as it is a platform from which to debate, defend or deny. Either way the tablet according to texts and experts is not supposed to be in Australia, but it is, and that does make a difference.

“Ancient Egyptian Presence In Australia: The case for the Tablet” (Paper 1 & 2) By Steven & Evan Strong

Tracey’s Tablet-the Final Egyptian Verdict

In our first article on Tracy’s Tablet we spoke of the artefacts’ recent history, her intervention and the unusual plaster-like substance that was moulded into this magnificent document/artistic relief, but very little mention was made of what it all meant. The crude overview and tentative interpretations we now offer is very much our opening gambit, and most assuredly we will be liaising with experts in the appropriate field who we trust. Despite being in the early stages of our research there are glyphs and segments understood that already open up possibilities and give solid indications that this tablet was indeed an ancient treaty establishing terms and conditions formalising an Egyptian settlement and involvement in Original land and affairs.

On the Surface
As mentioned in our first article, the fact that this a plaster-like cast as opposed to a carved piece of stone, is very unusual. And so begins our journey outside the norms. Ignoring all the hieroglyphs engraved what we have before one single symbol was incised into this composite mixture is a blank ‘canvas.’ Of itself it is an amazing piece of design and art of the highest degree. Beginning with the three dimensional ankh, replete with inscribed hatchings and internal reliefs, it acts as the focal point and dominates the scenery with a pervading mystical message. There is a deliberate symmetry throughout this tablet which we suspect is meant to reflect an openness and honest pledge to share.
Flanked beside and above, which is also part of the original cast, are three sarcophagi. Positioned in a perfect triangular alignment to the ankh, thus accentuating the harmony this document is formalising, we suspect that the two coffins on each side represent two males of Pharaonic standing and the tomb above is a female of equal status. The choice of three is elemental to Original Lore, as it is well known that all sacred sites and objects have three sources.
Next comes an unknown category of fine inscriptions applied with a very fine point or blade, which we are inclined to think was done before the plaster/concrete had set, but it really is a 50/50 call. Just beneath each side-sarcophagus there is seated an Egyptian king and queen facing each other and looking directly at the ankh.
Also depicted using the same technique is an assemblage of pottery, fruit/food and sundry items along with a rather enigmatic object we will discuss further in another article. Placed above the ankh, it would seem these items could be a record of gifts given during this formal exchange, or perhaps a shopping list, there can be no certainties. Nonetheless, when placed in context with the general setting and design, and in particular the text engraved, such a possibility of gift-giving is entirely in accord with the sentiments of this document.
Into the Plaster
The hieroglyphs, which number close to 300, almost certainly were chiselled into the surface after the mixture dried. There was an initial suggestion that maybe each imprint was stamped, but closer inspection reveals an inconsistency amongst shared glyphs. The hieroglyphs are very small and quite a delicate line and blade was used. What is immediately apparent when surveying the tablet in its entirety, is the incredible talent of not only the scribe but the artist. Undeniably this is a magnificent piece of art irrespective of when it was created, and the person entrusted this task surely had few equals. We are convinced that the symmetry, artistic skills and intricate designs found on this plaster must herald something of immense importance.

Into the Breach
Our tentative attempts at translating this ancient document come with a pocket full of caveats. We do have a fundamental understanding of Proto-Egyptian writing, and are quite familiar with Ray Johnson’s “Basic Hieroglyphica,” which contains over 3,000 glyphs and translations, and that book certainly has been of major assistance in translating the controversial Bambara Glyphs. It is our suspicion this treaty was created centuries after first contact, and that the Egyptian script on the tablet may be more modern than that at Bambara. If so this could possibly lessen its effectiveness when interpreting the tablet. Undeniably this is true, but even so there will be links, cross-overs, and icons barely changed, so the manual still has a place to play.
We are not Egyptologists, and the panel we have selected to study will then be sent to three experts who we trust. Due to our limitations in this field we are not able to give anything past a general overview. But we are very familiar with the Original mythology, Lore and surrounding archaeology, and equally already have a large reservoir of local archaeology and engravings with an Egyptian ‘flavour’ with which to compare. It is our intention to provide one semi-detailed amateur’s analysis of the top section of 36 glyphs, then pass the baton on to the professionals.
A Crude, but Bold, 101 reading of the Hieroglyphs.
No specifics or sentences, just generalities and common themes, that is all we intend to offer. However, amongst the equivocations we do lay claim to one certainty, that this tablet is a formal document negotiated with Original people. In the simplest of terms sets out terms, conditions and most importantly, common esoteric goals. This tablet is a legal document in every sense, acknowledging Original sovereignty and Egyptian rights of passage and tenure.
During our preliminary comparison we will make reference to the hotly disputed Bambara Glyphs. It needs to be made clear the authenticity of this tablet is in no way tied into the validity of the glyphs on the sandstone walls. Their histories are obviously separate and in no way dependent upon each other. What can’t be denied is the cross-over in bulk, there are a huge number of symbols shared and because of this it would be remiss of us not to highlight that convergence.
First up, there is not one mention or depiction of an Egyptian God or device, with one exception the narrative is bare. The ankh and ibises do appear, but as they are direct accompaniments to Thoth that is to be expected. What was not predicted was the total lack of any other overt religious iconography. At Bambara there are close to ten seated, meditative figures denoting, holy, majesty, etc., but here there is nothing recognisable in attendance or on the tablet. This not to say the spiritual larder is bare, quite the opposite, it is just more subtle and a touch more sublime.
Just as it is at Bambara there are human figures, but on this tablet they all bear a different guise and seem to be offering “invocation” and acting more as a recipient than a wisdom giver. But unlike Bambara where each holy person is seated cross-legged, on this tablet they are on their knees or seated on the ground in supplication with the legs acting as spectators. All poses are prostrate, in that they adopt defenseless, non-aggressive positions, which is another trait very much in keeping with the atmosphere of conciliation needed if permission is to be given and a treaty to be agreed upon.

Up Close
We begin our translation at the top right hand corner, and have paid particular attention to the column of glyphs closest to the edge, then the symbols placed on top of the sarcophagus and finally, the vertical line of hieroglyphs closest to the ankh. Conceding that this was our first inspection and a more intensive day studying the tablet is needed before any degree of certainty can be claimed, our tally of those three lines was 36. However, that is conditional, as one of the many cracks took some characters out of play, and we estimate there could be up to six markings that did lay somewhere on the utes’ floor before either blowing away or being swept out. Of the 36 glyphs remaining we are comfortable we can find an identical or extremely close match on 32 occasions, and this alone leaves us predisposed towards assuming the script is predominantly proto-Egyptian.

2014-10-03 12.51.46
Our reading opens with symbol for “give,” and alongside it is quite specific in nominating who is doing the giving, the “King of Upper Egypt.” Aware that the etchings above are of an assortment of pots and probable gifts, this initial reading is in synchronicity with the background setting. Beneath we noted the glyph for “beginning” or “mission” was engraved, and so the parameters expanded. Hieroglyphs representing ”wise,” “negative,” “building,” “fingerprint,” ”from,” with particular emphasis on both “chemical” and “throwing sticks” which appear twice in the first column, have all the makings of a fascinating introduction that gets even more intriguing as it continues.
Over the next two vertical arrangements of hieroglyphs mention is made of another far more complex “building,” “negative,” “hoe,” “from,” “mass/gravity,” “father,” “Lord,” “etheric region,” “govern,” “place of seclusion” and again a double acknowledgement is observed in another glyph meaning “I welcome you.”
Put this all together, and of course anything past identification of individual symbols is subjective, nevertheless there are some constants and directions hinted at that deserve further consideration. This concord/treaty begins by stating who stands in authority, in ancient times it was from Upper Egypt the seat of power was found. The formal giving in establishing diplomatic relations abroad, is obligatory and what follows may well expand on the cargo offered in homage. The “beginning” or “mission,” was an agreement to allow selected Egyptians to be apprenticed to Original guides and perhaps share in some of the Original mystical secrets and insights.
The doubling of “throwing sticks” (boomerangs) may not seem such a surprise, but we were caught unawares by the repetition of the symbol for “chemical.” This symbol makes many appearances on the Bambara walls, and being placed twice within the first dozen glyphs reinforces that same prominence. As to what this chemical offering is, that needs more deliberation and will be addressed down the track.
The appearance of a glyph on the opening panel we suggest to be “building” is a fascinating contribution. Throughout this proclamation of motivations, goods and chattels there are eight glyphs that take on the general form of buildings, but every construction displays minor variations and the most complex and ornate sits atop on the centre of the first sarcophagus. We feel permission was given to build eight steeples/temples/constructions of significance, and this was itemised in this list of conditions and rules of admission.
What really narrows down the possibilities is our identification of the glyphs bearing an agricultural imperative: the “hoe” and “scythe.” With buildings built and crops sown, it seems the Egyptians were allowed the license to organise their lifestyle in a way that is expressly against the sentiments of the Dreaming. Farming, at least the land over-management we recognise as farming today, is prohibited. It is a sin to leave the earth exposed, but it would seem accommodations were made for these novices from overseas in the Original things that really matter.
Amongst all the pragmatism it must be remembered there was always an underlying spiritual agenda. Because of the absolute need to further this eternal quest, mention is made of what is either a “place of seclusion” or “the third Heaven where the beings are masters of their own Ka.” Accompanied by glyphs denoting “lord,” “God” and “father” from the very beginning there is a strong mystical undercurrent throughout the whole account.
Enough of the front panel and three vertical passages, this was meant to an appetiser and the first section will be returned to a later date. But what it does provide is solid circumstantial evidence that lends some support to our belief that this a formal, and in every sense, legal document.
The Walls of Bambara
We are confident that the text is primarily proto-Egyptian as we are running at near an 80% match to Ray Johnson’s journal and our comparisons are far from complete. In what is a very persuasive cross-match, there is a very ornate glyph on the tablet that corresponds exactly with entry number 2411, “Keeper of the Wardrobe.” Another fairly intricate symbol that resembles a horse shoe with circles on the two ends engraved into the tablet again matches identically with “lift” (2614) or “mass,” which can not only be found in the proto-Egyptian manual, but also on the walls at Bambara.
What does cross boundaries is one hybrid of the hieroglyph for “etheric region.” According to Ray Johnson’s proto-Egyptian manual, and in keeping with most, but not all representations of the etheric regions have two peaks, one on each end of a rectangular base. However, there is one notable exception to the rule, at Bambara there are three rectangles each with three peaks. In what is either a remarkable coincidence, or confirmation of a shared glyph of tablet and walls, one glyph on the tablet also has three peaks.
The same rules apply when examining a series of five-legged crafts or mechanisms of some type with what looks like a capsule above found throughout the tablet. Nominated to be ether “a place of seclusion” or “the third Heaven,” there is a cluster of similar objects, some with five legs and others with a cabin structure atop, that can also be found at Bambara. Also sharing dual occupation status on the tablet and walls are glyphs representing ”sky,” “serpents,” “horned vipers (father),” “negative” and “Lord.”

2)  Glyphs

Thoth: First Amongst Equals
Probably the most convincing link between the tablet and the general flavour of surrounding archaeology, is the pre-eminence of Thoth in the land and on the tablet. We have seen an Original engraving of an ankh with an ibis footprint beside which was claimed by an ex-Senior Park Ranger with training in geology, to be over 10,000 years old. There are ankhs on the wall at Bambara, which is supplemented elsewhere in the area by a variety of depictions of the bearer of this sacred icon: Thoth.
Very close by are profiled engravings of Thoth, one in ibis-form and the other with ape features. Within three kilometres of the Bambara glyphs is another engraving of who we believe to be Biaime/Thoth, this Sky-Hero stands feet apart with what we feel is a helmet on his head, the sun and moon in each hand and large belt across his stomach which Aunty Bev referred to as the “Belt of Orion.” Remaining consistent to this recurring celestial theme, beneath this Sky-Heroes’ left foot is a massive engraved canoe/vessel measuring over seven metres. Local Original Custodian, Gavi Duncan, has stated that this craft was used to navigate “through the Milky Way.”

The Masters and the Apprentices
With the exception of the ankh/Thoth there are no Egyptian deities or related religious paraphernalia apparent on the tablet, all that remains are a series of human figures of indeterminate gender in a prostrate pose. They are receiving, never imparting, wisdom and guidance from their betters and this we believe provides an insight into the dynamics of this treaty. The tablet opens with a mission statement and an itemised account of what they brought, required and sought in return.
The repetition of hieroglyphs on the tablet, which in some cases has a tally running into double figures, including the flag of “God,” “Serpent Goddess,” “horned viper/father,” “sky” and “etheric region” runs consistent to the same theme. They are but some examples of the esoteric issues that were of prime concern to these Egyptian pilgrims. We have stated many times before that Australia was the fabled ‘Garden of Eden’ mentioned in many ancient accounts, the place where modern humans first evolved and all the ennobling civilised traits that elevate came into existence. The ancient Egyptians knew they were now standing on hallowed ground and were in the presence of the world’s greatest mystics, Kaidaitcha Men, Wee-uns and Clever-fellas. This is why there is no record of conflict, they never invaded but reverently asked permission to enter and stay under supervision.
As brief as this overview is, it is adequate for the task at hand. All we intended to present is a general setting, at the very least we have provided a platform from which to begin, extend or disprove.
When reassembled and restored to its former glory by professionals the plaster tablet will be recognised for what it was, and still is, an exquisite piece of art containing a narrative within that brings into question so many pre-historical assumptions and supposed truths. Of course others invariably see things in a more negative light, devout sceptics and defenders of current regimes are left with no other defense outside denying the credentials of the rock and decrying the motives of those championing its authenticity.
Truth or Fiction?
That opposing stance, in declaring the artefact to be bogus, falls short in one elemental level. Forget Tracy’s testimony, ignore the worn state of the tablet and intriguing mix of plaster, crystal and rock (which we will soon analyse), disregard the incredibly tight match between the proto-Egyptian manual and Bambara hieroglyphs, what doesn’t make any sense is that the tablet is so intricate, delicate and utterly magnificent. Why would any human being, past or present, invest so much time and expertise in making this plaster relief then dump or stow it between the walls of a derelict building? Why bother faking something of which there is no model from which to copy? All that labour, material and talent yields nothing and achieves less if merely a fake. No matter which way it is spun around into a rebuttal, the underlying premise of all this being a mischievous ploy does not make sense.
One of the most famous American philosophers and social commentators has always had a fixation about any testimony or evidence that fails the simplest test of logic. Judge Judy has often reminded litigant and audience alike that “if it doesn’t make sense it is a lie.” Nothing about this tablet generates any joy or fame if a prank, the whole concept is purposeless and pointless. And because of these truths, any denial of legitimacy just “doesn’t make sense.”
As to what the truth is, what function this document performs and the actual meaning of the hieroglyphs, that is a work in progress that has barely began. Once this article is published the first portion of hieroglyphs will be sent out to a group of academics and custodians, all are separate from each other in leaning, continents and will be working independently on their translation. Collating the results then comparing each translation will be an illuminating read and an essential part of our next article.
Another task that hopefully will soon be completed is an analysis of the plaster/concrete/crystal mixture. We are very confident that what will be identified is not part of the local geology, and that the source will be much further away, perhaps all the way back to Egypt. In fact, once factoring in the exotic nature of the plaster, the type of specific non-Original artistic skill exhibited and knowledge in ancient Egyptian semantics, grammar and hieroglyphs, we would be extremely surprised if the minerals and material came from anywhere other than Egypt. Of course all our musings and suppositions over the plaster and its contents will be resolved soon enough.
There is so much more yet to investigate, with 36 hieroglyphs ticked off in the next article once the translations from those more qualified are in, there are over 250 glyphs still to decipher. We intend to make an extensive comparison to the reliefs/tablets from all ancient civilisations, questions will no doubt flow out of the chemical analysis that need to be addressed, and of course, more consultation is needed with Original Elders and Custodians of the Old Ways.
It’s a Fake!
The day after the first article was published we were swamped with pleas and aggressive directives demanding we take down the article. An image of a replica of the same tablet was used as ‘damming evidence’ of our haste and sloppy research, the photograph of a commercial replica for sale was most certainly of the same format and content as the tablet we are now investigating. The tablet was for sale, and the sales’ pitch noted its “unique” design and manner of construction. The ‘original’ tablet was dated at 1800BC from the Twelfth Dynasty, and as we suspected the two seated Gods were indeed Osiris and Isis.
Supporters and detractors have assumed since copies were made all we have found is a tacky replica. For them this was absolute proof that the artefact is merely a copy, from our point of view it does the opposite, it confirms that there was an agreement and that two copies of the document made between two parties which were kept. One tablet was stored in Australia and the other in Egypt, this is pure common-sense. Every transaction between two parties of equal standing, be it of a commercial or political nature, has some way a formalising whatever is of interest and both parties keep copies. That is what happened here.
One of our most committed supporters put it to us, what if someone bought a fake tablet and placed it between the walls, would this not explain how it got there? Bearing in mind the convict quarters built near Arthur Phillip’s residence were erected very, very soon after first settlement, and that this document was found between the walls, it had to be placed there in the late 1700’s or early 1800’s. My problem is, no-one was replicating or selling copies of any Egyptian documents or artefacts during that time, nor did Phillip take an unscheduled deviation to Egypt with the First Invasion Fleet.
No, all this news of present-day copies of a tablet considered so unique it had a commercial value in copying, is all well after the event. The convict buildings were completed well before Napoleon stumbled into Egypt and European interest in Egypt was reignited. What does assist is that the date of 3,900 years fits in perfectly with our belief it is a treaty. If Bambara is legitimate, which we believe it is, the first record of Egyptian contact is around 4,600 years ago. From that point, where both ships were damaged and death, drought and misfortune befell them, some considerable time was needed to return again, slowly acclimatise and most importantly win trust before a formal agreement and rights of settlement could be given. That being the case there should be two identical copies of that document, one in Australia and one in Egypt, and lo and behold and may we thank those who are trying to discredit us, the Egyptian counterpart to this esoteric and political alliance has been located.
It is ironic, in what many initially perceive as a fatal flaw in our research could actually be the missing final piece in an Australo-Egyptian jig saw that is thousands of years old.
What Tracy Said
We said this before, and will say it again, Tracy swears the artefact was found wedged between the walls of a convict building scheduled to be demolished. If she is telling the truth, these latter-day copies of this seminal concord granting controlled Egyptian occupation in Australia came into being well after the tablet was found and hidden during the times that the first Governor-General of the British Invasion Fleet set up residence in Parramatta. Phillip did not stopover at Egypt, nor did he bring Egyptian curios to adorn his residence, it was here when they arrived and long before. All the modern-day copies prove is that this tablet is extremely important, a work of art worthy of selling and that the second of the two original manifestos has been found.
The Political Undercurrent
For now we strongly suspect that this a formal tablet inaugurating an agreement between Original tutors and Egyptian novices in a quest to seek the Divine, that’s it. Anything past that truth is conjecture. In that hypothetical vein it becomes obvious that this formal agreement leads on to one non-archaeological side-issue that immediately looms on the horizon and deserves serious consideration before our next installment. What if this tablet is actually a treaty? If it is a legal document, does it have any standing today? Considering that the Original people were not written into the Australian constitution, and therefore have never legally abandoned their claims of sovereignty, and that no treaty of any sort was ever signed by any representative of the British or Original people, do these omissions of protocol mean that the Egyptian treaty still prevails?
Apart from rewriting huge parcels of ancient pre-history both in Australia and throughout the globe, there could be a political edge to this ancient Egyptian tablet that may turn out to be decidedly uncomfortable and extremely inconvenient. The Elders have spoken, the rock is genuine, and academics have taken the path of least resistance and chosen not to give an ear to the Original accounts of the past. Irrespective of any potential political impact and academic timidity, this tablet is a seminal discovery and will throw so much of what happened in the past into disarray.
At this stage there are no other certainties we can offer except that it will be a bumpy road ahead. Early contact with official channels regarding Ros’ Rock and Tracy’s Tablet is not promising and we fully expect the hostility will ramp up. Despite the hurdles and intransigence we will persevere in presenting the Original truth with Original guidance. With apologies to John Lennon, our plea to officials and academics is as simple as is the solution, ‘all we are saying is give Elders a chance.’

A Funeral Tablet, Treaty or a Fake?

A recurring complaint made about our style of presentation relates to how we work in installments, putting out information and archaeology as soon as possible. It seems a fair call. Critics and supporters alike are recommending a change in approach, suggesting ‘we are damaging the reputation of Bambara,’ that we ‘pull back,’ or ‘wait until all the evidence is in,’ and so it continues. Problem is we are researching Black-fella business and they are seeking a White-fella approach. The Original way was a little bit at a time, no rush, one piece of information was given, but often in a cryptic guise. It was never both sides of the argument clearly set out with a conclusion all in the same paper, not here, we do this Old Way but with one recent modification. The Original Elders and Custodians who guide and share with us have made it clear why they want these truths out now, right away, so we have to make haste. If we wait six months for all the information to gather, we could be dead by then and nothing will be shared or assembled. Same before, same now.
In our previous article Evan and I addressed the mistaken allegation that this tablet was a copy or in some way bogus, then we went a little further in suggesting that the tablet was actually a treaty. This was a bold statement to make and we will explain in greater detail towards the end of the article why we have chosen such an academically dangerous path. It is our belief that this document is a treaty witnessed by royalty from Egypt and Original Elders. This is the legal document between an Original tribe or tribe and the Egyptians establishing a form of diplomatic relations with people who were probably from the extinct Eora tribe. What hampers any investigation into this matter is that all of the Eora people were wiped out soon after the Invasion took place.
In spite of that crucial Original vacuum missing on site, there is still enough archaeology and history remaining to at least make some tentative findings, observations and one declaration.
Phillips’ Farm
In our last article we gave ample evidence proving that this tablet was here before the first British Fleet sailed into Port Jackson and dropped anchor. We are of the opinion that soon after Philip began to set up his main residence and first farm, the outbuildings were built and during that construction someone found and hid the tablet between two walls with the intention of returning. Whether death, being unable to secure a passage back to Britain or some other unforseen circumstances, what was secured between the walls was never collected and remained hidden until the order was given to destroy and demolish.
A Funerary Tablet?
2014-10-03 12.30.11
Having established a solid case linking this document back to Australian pre-historic times, the pressing issue now relates to what function this tablet performs, and just as importantly, what do the hieroglyphs say? At first glance, if relying on mainstream interpretations on the exact same text found on other copies of this document, the answer is simple, it is merely a funerary dedication to a person of high standing. We are told this document talks of the goods and chattels taken to sustain the deceased in their journey on the other side of life, of the expected meetings and approvals from Gods, the wisdom that will be revealed and the peace and harmony assured for any who gain admittance to this place reminiscent of tales of the Garden of Eden.
That is one interpretation, there is another that is also entirely consistent with the text, but reverses the geography and everything else. What if this document was a formal treaty between representatives of the Egyptian ruling class and Original Elders? Granting permission to enter the land of the First People, the place where religion, art, culture and life resonated under the auspices of the Dreaming, the items listed and opening passage could certainly be read both ways. The Original people were the keepers of the eternal truths, and if the Egyptians were going to win their trust, coming in reverence bearing gifts with an expectation to learn the elemental truths is the only way this could be achieved. Their approach to this earthly assignment would be identical to how they pay homage when entering the esoteric regions of the after-life. One location is ‘heaven on Earth,’ and the other ‘heaven not of Earth,’ for all intents and purposes outside geography there is no difference.
The Ankh, an Australian Icon
The ankh, the centre-piece of this tablet, is assumed to be an Egyptian icon that was always found with Thoth. It is not, it is Australian. The very first time Evan and I were taken out to inspect some of the archaeology in the Sydney/Gosford region with an ex-Senior Park Ranger of Brisbane Waters National Park, he took us to an extremely ancient Original engraving of an Ankh. We took dozens of photographs that showed nothing with clarity, but there was a brief interlude in the grey when the sun broke through and one successful photograph was taken. Undoubtedly, it was the most worn and difficult image to photograph, and when John Gallard declared that the ankh was at least 10,000 years old, this came as no surprise. Successfully studying geology at Cambridge University, John made it clear his knowledge in geology was extensive and that this date was valid.
Trick is, if it is half that date we still face the same problem. Thoth, the ankh, do not exist in any Egyptian records anywhere near 10,000 years ago, and if so does that mean the ankh has yet another meaning? With most symbols having more than one meaning and as a result ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs are contextual where the meaning is chosen that best suits the setting provided, the ankh can have many meanings. It can mean door, mirror, floral garland, eye of a deity, Thoth’s accompaniment, the door to the mystical side, it really is a pick and choose situation, but we suspect that the original meaning referred to the Original wisdom of Australia.
Not only the Ankh, but engravings’ of Thoth in both ibis and ape guise, wearing an Egyptian headdress, can be found in the same area. So too an engraving that we believe is a representation of the Egyptian God of Inheritance. This archaeology and much more, all located in the general vicinity, supplies a distinctly Egyptian flavour that strengthens the connection to Egypt and perhaps defines a more correct definition of what an ankh is and from where it originated, Australia.
With the ankh acting as the pivot upon which the tablet is formed around, what caught my eye early on were the female and male regents seated in their thrones. I commented when we first began our examination that I thought the female could be Isis, but dismissed this hope as being wishful thinking. Knowing that Isis’ place of origin was never specified, that there is no mention of any reciprocal political obligations with any nearby country through the marriage of royalty, and that the Isaic religion is almost identical in every respect to the Original Dreaming, these and many other reasons discussed in our earlier book have convinced us that Isis was Original. We had already postulated that this marriage was part of a formal set of ceremonies that cemented an alliance between Egypt and Australia. We have written a chapter in Forgotten Origins explaining in far greater detail why we thought Isis was Original, and of course this seated engraved image reminded me of other depictions of Isis, but I couldn’t let my preference of regent cloud my objectivity.
It turns out that according to the experts this is indeed Isis seated facing the Ankh, which is very much in accord with our expectations, but there are still issues unresolved and it would seem that at first glance the contents of a paper written by ancient Egyptian researcher Jane A. Hill (University of Pennsylvania) rule out this tablet being anything other than one of five funerary tablets.
Upon Closer Inspection
My first casual browse through Jane Hill’s paper was simply to look at photographs of the five tablets. They have nothing in common and none less unlike the rest than the Stela of Senebef. This tablet which has an identical setting, figures and hieroglyphs to Tracy’s tablet is, as we have often remarked, a magnificent piece of artistry. The other four are far less appealing, the setting is completely dissimilar and the figures are different, the only thing that is shared are five different representations of the ankh. I did wonder before reading the paper why these five tablets were claimed to serve the same function. But the problem is her paper has a sub-heading stating that all five moulds are “mortuary monuments.”
However, what was more than a touch contradictory was that Hill conceded there is actually no reason to assume any of these tablets commemorated any death. The site where this tablet was recovered presents a real leap in logic, simply because the “structures could not be described as empty tombs, but as memorial buildings because they contained no burial shafts.” Identified as “cenotaphs,” such buildings are monuments built in memory of someone buried elsewhere. This presents an irreconcilable dichotomy because the tablet is said to nominate the fallen, state their credentials, the goods and chattels bought in homage and their personal entreaties to the Gods. If this testimony is not in attendance with the body when judgment is passed, their passage into the after-life is assured to fail. If there are no tombs or burial shafts nearby, we would suggest the only thing this tablet cannot be is a funerary dedication.
In what only heightens the uncertainty, Hill noted that the entire area is an academic mine-field, and that “the complete lack of archaeological records of early excavations, when most of the Abydene stelae now housed in museum collections around the world were removed, leaves scholars no way of determining what percentage of Middle Kingdom stelae come from actual tomb chapels and what percentage come from cenotaphs.” Amongst all the collateral damage when educated vandals looted this treasure “scholars” of today are left to pick up the pieces, surely under these chaotic conditions passing any absolute verdict is unsound. Moreover, the chances that all five tablets, in particular the Stela of Senebef, are funerary tablets must diminish if for no other reason than it is agreed that “a large percentage come from cenotaphs.”
The names of the two males and female, who are related, are supplied, but in what again contradicts the norm there is supposedly a fourth person who died and he was called “Hor-Nakht, born of Kemhetes.” In what adds to the intrigue, the uncarved person is also unrelated, and whole notion of non-kin occupying a family tomb, which by the way is somewhere well away from where this tablet was found, is very odd. If a funerary tablet, and one of the finest quality, created by someone of the highest skill, carving a second small figure below the ankh would be very easy and maintain the balance. It seems illogical to not include some form of visual icon to acknowledge the fourth soul setting off on his journey into the after-life (or Australia), and no obvious reason why Hor-Nakht was ignored, or for that matter, even included.
Conversely, if commemorating a treaty signed between ancient Egypt and Australia, could this immortalise five major people involved in bringing this alliance into being and were fully acknowledged, and this person was of some lesser assistance? Was this a representation of the first Egyptian ambassadors?
When commenting on the crucial opening passages it is so important as it goes a long way towards identifying what the whole narrative means. Once a setting is established in the introduction, the interpretation of the passage that follows is somewhat determined by that opening read. According to Hill that first statement can be read as being “a revelation of the honored Senebef that he sees the lord of the horizons, crossing the sky with him and sitting with him before both of the shrines of the horizons.” Is this a story about the afterlife, or travelling over the horizon to ‘Heaven on Earth’ to assist in setting up and perhaps acting as regent in the newly established Egyptian settlement in Australia? What aroused our interest was the repetition of horizons, taking up residence with the “Lord” at a location that sounds earthly as opposed to the sky, which is crossed then seemingly descended from as they reach a location beyond the Egyptian horizon, sounds very Australian in destination.
This place to which Senebef and his entourage of family and another are destined, sounds like paradise. It is a location where they will meet a “priest with pure fingers” and be intoxicated by the “perfume of the gods.” Whether this account is of when they, along with all Egyptians under his command, were sailing towards Australia in reverence acting as apprentices and hoping to learn from Original Elders adept in the mystical and supernatural, or a description of their death and the four souls departing, is all a matter of perspective.
Mentioned in our previous article, our reading of the opening passage is not that different from the account provided except we had identified, through reference to Ray Johnson’s manual, no actual name but the same station. “Give” and “King of Upper Egypt” can certainly be read as offerings to their Original mentors or meeting their maker, but “mission” or “beginning” leaves us more predisposed towards continuing this narrative in Australia.

So too there is one glyph found on both the Australian tablet and Bambara hieroglyphs which is also found in Egypt, by proxy. From the first time we had access to Ray’s manual and began the process of translating some of the glyphs at Bambara, I have found one symbol quite challenging which we assumed to be an extremely “etheric region.” When taken in context, we believe that this symbol could represent the land and people of ancient Australia. Normally the etheric region symbol is a rectangle with a triangle peak at each end, but at Bambara there are three peaks with the extra peak placed in the centre. We have never seen it anywhere else, until sighting Tracy’s tablet. There it was in the first column near the top, the same hieroglyph we had already identified as Australia. Obviously the same etheric glyph is on the Stela of Senebef and that affirmation must also add to the claims of Egyptian involvement in Bambara.
Why Bother?
Changing tact and focus, the whole idea that anyone would bother to buy this tablet overseas, bring it to Australia, wander out to Phillip’s farm at Parramatta and when no-one was watching wedge the mould in between two convict walls and run off never to be seen, seems ridiculous. No credit claimed or idle tongue heard in boast, and no point or sane reason could ever be ascribed, and nor has any name been given. To do this just doesn’t make sense.
Even if ignoring the utter stupidity of this mischief, if a copy was actually placed inside the walls, we have a huge problem looming ahead. The mistakenly claimed original tablet is in Vienna and is made from a limestone cast, the copies are either plaster or limestone. The Australian tablet is obviously neither, there is a white mix that looks like limestone, but there is also an aggregate of rocks, quartz, crystals and possibly salt. All the other copies are basically of the same type, much simpler in make and smaller in height and width than Tracy’s tablet, while this tablet is encrusted with rocks and crystals and took more time in making and skill in creating a more complex mixture.
Which came first? Well there is one tablet that is noticeably different in composition, and happens to be more aged and worn in appearance, the Australian tablet. Even if it wasn’t smashed in transit, it is still very worn. Most of the glyphs were read or guessed with the assistance of a magnifying glass and there were many occasions when that wasn’t enough. The two bottom edges are so worn the glyphs that should be on the edge are gone. Since we know it was sealed off from the elements since sometime in the 1790’s, the aging process evident took place pre-British Invasion.
Another way of Looking at the Glyphs
We envisage a scenario running something like this, the six players acknowledged in different manners on the tablet were the most instrumental Egyptian participants in arranging this accord. Whether Isis and Osiris were alive at the moment is inconsequential as their presence dominates the culture and religion of that time (3,900 years ago).
This party brought gifts and formal requests to farm, build and behave like Egyptians, but only if consent was given. That request was granted and was memorialised on two copies/tablets. The tablet Tracy is protecting is the original and the tablet in Egypt the duplicate copy of this diplomatic and cultural exchange. The prime tablet will be the one that is different from all other copies no matter when made, and that is the case with the Australian tablet and the aggregate that makes up the mould.
That document was kept on the tribal land of the Eora, the ones who gave consent, as it should be. But as it should not be, very soon after the British invasion and occupation began the tablet was found and stolen then hidden between two walls with the intention of coming back at a later time, but due to unforeseen and fortuitous circumstances, or Divine intervention, the thief did not return to collect and depart.
Why be so Dogmatic?
Why couldn’t we say that all of this talk about a treaty could be, as we have always adopted the same equivocation in the past? Many have asked the same question and urged a degree of moderation. Our reply has been consistent, we have no choice. The reason we are running in the opposite direction in our methodology in being so absolute is simple, we have no choice irrespective of our personal concerns. The Original spirits have spoken and spoken, and this time we are hearing and obeying. Somewhere along this journey there had to be a leap of faith, we heard the call and responded accordingly.
Time after time when writing the accompanying article I kept questioning why what was written was so uncharacteristically adamant in respect to this tablet being a legal document. On one occasion I went very close to hedging bets, but I couldn’t follow through as the spirits were begging me to listen and leave this seminal truth, now finally rediscovered, untouched.
On the day I finally relented and agreed that all mention of this treaty, except in the most benign terms be expunged, the spirits made three attempts to intervene and plead their case.
Sean, like all of those from our inner group who were advising moderation, was coming from the right place concerned solely with ‘our best interests.’ I suspect they felt this was just an extreme example of my stubbornness with perhaps an overlay of ego refusing to see common-sense. It was only when sitting out on the back verandah, as I tried to explain why I couldn’t back down and how the spirits were pulling my strings, did two rainforest hawks appear from nowhere and perch 10 metres away and spent the next minute and a half staring intently at me. One was on a branch, the other on the top of a sapling which bowed at 60 degrees and made for a very unsteady perch, it made no difference, despite the rocking and swaying the hawk kept its gaze locked. I called out to Evan and my wife, and they witnessed the same message. I passed this scene on in commentary to Sean, who immediately acknowledged what this meant and no longer objected to my approach.
Within an hour, when in conversation with Ryan and Andy from Wake up World, I relented and agreed to splitting the article and rewriting. As I did so, I felt a soft but noticeable punch in my stomach, slumping in the chair as the air flowed out. It was odd in that it caused absolutely no pain, but had such a noticeable physical reaction.
What was even more odd is that under most rules of engagement what happened when I rang Tracy to explain why I had agreed to an edit after she had seen and agreed to the earlier version, cannot be anything other than a third response to my call for assistance. Not long before I sent a message to an Original Elder of the highest knowledge in Old Ways, for two things, guidance in whether my obstinance was warranted, and secondly if he could give me something I could put in the article to present the Original view on this tablet as to whether it was a treaty. I knew I would get a response and expected it to be correct and cryptic, but nothing quite like this was on my radar.
As I spoke to Tracy with Evan alongside, I began to explain, once again, why I was so strident in insisting what mainstream declare to be a funeral tablet is actually a treaty, and why I had backed down, when Evan interrupted and pointed up into the sky. Another sign from the spirits, two wedged-tailed eagles were spiralling above us as I spoke to the person chosen by the spirits to act as guardian about the tablet’s meaning. In what only confirmed that this was heaven-sent, the wedged-tail eagle is the totem of this Elder, so either he or the spirits, gave their verdict in the affirmative three times. That is the sacred number, three signs in one day at the exact moment this sacred concord is discussed, that is the prime truth we are left with and it is our reality, and obligation.
So there it is, we ‘know’ this is a treaty, but that means nothing, it is our opinion alone and everyone should take no stock in what we believe and decide independently. Irrespective of what we think or declare, the tablet is genuine and Egyptian but belongs to the Original people, in any language and from every perspective that is the truth.

“The Egyptian Stone Tablet – Is It Fake?” (Article: Wake Up World)


“In our recent article on the Egyptian stone tablet (dubbed “Tracy’s Tablet”) we spoke of its colonial history, of human interventions in its imminent disposal, and of the unusual cement-like substance from which this piece was moulded.

The day after the first article was published we received numerous pleas and even aggressive demands from within the research community to take down the article. An image of a replica of the same tablet was shown as ‘damning evidence’ of our haste and sloppy research. The photograph of a commercial replica for sale was most certainly of the same format and content as the tablet we are now investigating. The ‘original’ tablet on which the replica was based is dated at 1800Bc, from the Twelfth Egyptian Dynasty, and as we suspected the two-seated Gods were indeed Osiris and Isis.

But this left us with more questions than answers. Is it a document? Is it an artistic relief? Is it a fake?

Let’s look at what we know so far……”

“Ancient Egyptians in Australia – the Final Verdict Moulded into Stone” (Article: Wake Up World)

Australian mainstream academic and media outlets invited to view a pivotal piece of archaeology discovered on our shores.

“Admittedly, we already knew before making the first phone call that trying to engage the mainstream was a fruitless, mind-numbing venture. We’ve been down that vortex of ignorance before. But, in earnest, we reached out to the Sydney Morning Herald, ABC News, the Australian Museum, and the University of Western Sydney, and extended an invitation to attend.

Inevitably, as expected, the institutions and academics we contacted showed their trademark lack of enthusiasm and/or understanding of the bigger picture, and all refused to attend. (Let’s put on our ‘big surprise’ face! ) At very least, they helped us to further document the culture of intellectual impotence and denial that dominates government institutions (and those they fund) while further validating our belief that what we’re dealing with is beyond the comprehension of mainstream thinking….”

Is Unexplained Rock Carving Evidence of Advanced Ancient Technology? (Article: Wake Up World)

By Steven & Evan Strong – Defying all geological conventions, our resident geologist is having real trouble doing any more than ruling out what this rock artefact is NOT. Carved into extremely hard stone, the engraved lines are not random but precise, containing information that appears to be directional (mapping). And from what has been observed so far, it appears the most probable agent is laser.

“Unravelling the Myths of Humanity’s Genetic Origins” (Article: Wake Up World)

By Steven & Evan Strong… A study of the male Original Y Chromosomes conducted in 1999 revealed two haplotypes unique to Australian Aboriginals, which suggest modern humans originated from two separate Aboriginal lineages. But in attempting to connect the evolutionary dots, there is nothing of an Earthly origin that can and account for the first Homo sapiens, unless we cast our eyes to the skies.
