What did this study of signs explore?
What is the Isis Thesis in a nut shell?
What is horizontal gene transfer and viral replication?
Who else knew the secret?
Where did their knowledge come from?
Are all religions trying to tell us this same information?
Does this mean Religion is Science?
Why are we so confused?
Who are we anyway?
Is the earth a cell?
What does all this really mean?
I began this exploration of the Egyptian funerary texts because I believed that the ancient Pharaohs possessed knowledge that would shed light on life and death, thereby eliminating the fear of the unknown for humans. In 2001, I left my college teaching position to spend more than 3 years fulltime independent research on the funerary texts
The Isis Thesis is critical scientific research that challenges currently-held theories on the meaning of Egyptian funerary texts, art and architecture by accounting for more of the data, which many scholars have dismissed as confusing, unintelligible, and primitive. The knowledge is transdisciplinary, that is, it applies to many disciplines in the humanities and the sciences
Decoding eight major ancient Egyptian texts spanning 2000 years revealed that over 870 signs worked together as a whole. In this consistent model, the value or meaning of each sign emerged, not by choice, but rather from an analysis of each sign's interaction within a matrix of 870 interlinked thematic signs. These decoded signs unveiled an amazing science of quantum physics, bacterial genetics, supramolecular chemistry, space physics and molecular biology. This city of living signs reinforces not only our Nobel Prize-winning science research, but also current research on black holes, cosmology and String Theory
The evidence shows that Biosemiotics is the key that explains signs and historical themes such as the rising/dying god, the virgin birth, the brother rivalry for the throne, and the god on the cross. Biosemiotics not only decodes the Egyptian signs, but it is also the key to long-lost signs found in myth, religion, psychology, art and literature --- all of these disciplines developing or being written down after the carving of Egyptian knowledge in ancient pyramids circa 2500 BCE.
Whereas The Isis Thesis decodes over 870 Egyptian signs, The Road from Orion explains the science in the thesis, while interpreting great works of art. Both books were possible because of my college teaching experience, science research and former studies. My graduate level instruction in literary criticism was centered on great thinkers such as Derrida, Foucault, Heidegger, Levi-Strauss, Nietzsche and many others interested in the study of signs and the origin of the work of art
The University of Cambridge paper summarizes the core statements of The Isis Thesis, discussing patterns found in the works of the poet William Blake, the playwright Antonin Artaud, the artist Albrecht Durer and the Jesuit paleontologist Pierre de Chardin that are supportive of the Science in The Isis Thesis
My work rewarded me with the knowledge of why the ancient Kings did not fear death, why they looked upon the world with a cool equanimity that was omniscient and eternal. Put simply, they understood the evolutionary process of horizontal gene transfer.
Although no theory is an absolute theory, this thesis provides a scientific rationale that helps one to understand who we are, how our universe works, and what we can become.
