The Egyptian Book of the Dead, Nuclear Physics and the Substratum
John Frederick Sweeney
The Egyptian Book of the Dead has been called many things in the brief
history of Egyptology, which began with Napoleon’s Invasion of Egypt in 1799.
In the same way, translators of ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics, such as Sir
Wallace Budge, merely took such texts like the Coffin Texts literally, and with
their limited knowledge of Egyptian culture and of mathematics, translated
them in the standard meaning which academic accepts today. Although late
19th Century mathematics had discovered the Octonions and Sedenions by
that time, they had already been dismissed as useless by leading
mathematicians, and were so disregarded up until around 1990 or so.
Sir Roger Penrose, for example, dismissed the Octonions as useless for
Robert de Marrais made a statement in his 2002 essay about 42 Assessors
as to how a series of numbers associated with the multiplication table for the
Sedenions was related to the 42 Assessors of the Egyptian Book of the Dead.
For that matter, elsewhere De Marrais stated that the Tibetan Book of the
Dead contains similar content. De Marrais went even further to describe an
Osiris Partition within the Sedenion multiplication table.
Then there are the 42 negative confessions to the god Maat (see Appendix I).
These were written to accompany the 42 Assessors, although the confessions
did not always conform to the proper Assessor, Budge states. Whether this
was intentional is a question worthy of research in tandem with exploration of
