The Author’s View

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 and lawful time reverse.   
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.
 

Judy K. King, M.A. is author of The Isis Thesis (presented at the 2006 International Congress for Young Egyptologists), The Road from Orion, 12 related scientific articles published in international journals, and Balls of Fire: a Science of Life and Death. Her credentials include 20 years of experience in adult education. Currently, King is a member of the Semiotic Society of America and a humanities instructor at North Central Michigan College.

In early 2006, Judy King submitted a scientific abstract to the review committee organized by the Universidade de Lisboa for the Second International Congress for Young Egyptologists to be held in Lisbon Portugal, October 23-26, 2006. The conference theme was “Erotica, Erotism and Sexuality in Ancient Egypt” relative to Religion and Afterlife, History and Daily Life, and Art and Literature. Presenting the paper “Biosemiotics in Ancient Egyptian Texts: the Key unlocking the Universal Secret of Sexuality,” King explained the microbiological message of hybrid evolution in Egyptian funerary art and literature. Since biologists consider the union of genetic material as biological sex, the “Universal Secret of Sexuality” concerned horizontal gene transfer, the exchange of DNA between two species–organic  human DNA and viral DNA. According to biologist Lynn Margulis in Microcosmos, “Even the infection of humans by an influenza virus is a sexual act in that genetic material inserts itself in our cells” (1986, 156). Here is King’s presentation at the Museu da Farmácia Auditorium in Lisbon on October 25, 2006.
