Luxor Temple

This is episode 4 from a series called Magical Egypt by ‘independent egyptologist’ John Anthony West who is considered a fringe thinker by many mainstream archeologists and egyptologists.

Luxor Temple is a large Ancient Egyptian temple complex located on the east bank of the River Nile in the city today known as Luxor (ancient Thebes) and was founded in 1400 BCE. , Known in the Egyptian language as ipet resyt, or “the southern sanctuary”, the temple was dedicated to the Theban Triad of Amun, Mut, and Chons and was built during the New Kingdom, the focus of the annual Opet Festival, in which a cult statue of Amun was paraded down the Nile from nearby Karnak Temple (ipet-isut) to stay there for a while, with his consort Mut, in a celebration of fertility – whence its name.” – Wikipedia

This series gives an interesting perspective on the meaning behind the temple’s design and proportions. Each part of the temple has measurements and ratios that match up with the human body, infact each area of the temple is apparently representative of parts of the human body when viewed from above. There are many points that show this throughout the documentary. This all seems to suggest that the Egyptians had a very deep understanding of how the human body worked, maybe more-so than the mainstream currently believes or understands.
