Is the Temple of
Horus at EDFU, Egypt a CPU?
Back on March 2nd of
Richard Hoagland made an
appearance on a FOX special called "Opening the Lost Tombs". The
program showed different opinions regarding the ancient mysteries of
Egyptologists and thinkers like
maintain that the ancient Egyptians built all of the monuments
like the Sphinx and Pyramids and steadfastly
maintains that any other
theory is ridiculous.
Alternative researchers like Hoagland suggested that the
monuments of Egypt were built by a previous high-tech civilization.
One piece of evidence put forth on the FOX
special showed a glyph at a temple in Abydos, Egypt.
The particular glyph had
several bizarre, high-tech looking objects:
One of the most striking
features on this glyph was a character that resembled a helicopter.
This glyph was found in
a Temple that was originally built by Seti I in Abydos
which was a cult center dedicated to the worship of Osiris. Was this
the only evidence in Egypt regarding the residual memory of a
pre-history, high-tech civilization?
It was until a discovery
made by Daniel Perez, who maintains the website.
During the course of surfing the internet for information to create
a web page on a completely different subject, Perez came across
a website showing the Temple of Horus in Edfu,
Egypt. This temple was built for the worship of Horus,
the son of Osiris who avenged his father's death.
On this same web page
was a map of the Temple of Horus.
Upon looking at this
image and basing his observations on his knowledge of electronics,
Perez noticed that the Eastern End of the temple (top of
image) looked very similar to the structure of a microprocessor.
What got Perez's attention was the closely spaced lines on the right
side (north side) of the temple.
Then looking at the
whole image, it became glaringly obvious that the entire Temple of
Horus correlated with components of a CPU and surrounding
hardware that's found in modern day computers.
Each section of the
Temple of Horus correlated with a segment of a CPU and the
surrounding hardware needed for a CPU to function.
THE CPU /
The most important part of the Temple of Horus, the Eastern
end, has a similar structure to the interior of a CPU. The
smaller sections consist of Chambers surrounding an Offering Hall, a
Vestibule and an area called the Naos, which in ancient
Egyptian tradition contains the most important part of this
particular temple, a statue of the god Horus.
The Chambers surrounding the Eastern End of the Temple would
logically be places to store objects or information, perhaps for
later use in a ritual. Inside a CPU, segments known as registers
perform the task of storing information to be processed later.
The next inner chamber
is a Vestibule, which is defined in Webster's Dictionary as
"a course that offers access (as to something new)." In a similar
matter, the arithmetic and logic section of a CPU offers a the outer
sections of a microprocessor access to the main area called the
The NAOS, is obviously the center of the temple and
symbolically controls and works in tandem with all of the rituals
and tradition surrounding it. In a similar fashion, the Control
Unit of a CPU controls and works in tandem with all of the other
sections of a microprocessor.
The lower right of the temple's inner sanctuary (CPU area) are two
small sections which resemble miniature integrated circuit chips
which are used in computers as system clocks for a CPU.
At the entrance to this inner section of the Temple of Horus is an
area called "The Offering" hall, which contains items
to be brought from the "Second Hypostyle" hall. The Cache of a CPU
contains data that is to be brought from the outside, especially
from the next component of a computer, the BIOS chip.
THE BIOS CHIP
/ SECOND HYPOSTLE HALL
The word "Hypostyle" in Webster's dictionary is defined as "a
roof resting on rows of columns". If you've noticed, any
Integrated Circuit chip, including the BIOS chip looks
like a roof resting on rows of columns. The "roof" would be the body
of the chip and the columns would be the metal pins protruding from
The BIOS chip
performs the function of "booting up" the CPU by making sure all
attachments are in place, transfers control to the BIOS and loads
the program to be used into the Random Access Memory (RAM).
In a similar fashion, the "Second Hypostyle" hall is a gathering
place to make the temple ready for "god worship" rituals to be
performed, temporarily transfers control of the temple to this hall
when the "god worship" ritual is about to begin and is used to bring
in the tradition of ritual celebration (a program) for those in the
next outer "hypostyle" hall who are not skilled enough to be in the
RAM / HYPOSTLE
Random Access Memory is a short term memory used to
temporarily hold programs to be used by a computer. In the case of
the temple, "the computer" is Egyptian Civilization and the
"program" is a celebration held in the outer hypostyle hall for
those not qualified or required to be in the inner sanctuary or are
COURTYARD / A
The open courtyard of this temple has several pillars surrounding it
inside of a wall on three sides. A socket which is used to hold a
co-processor chip (or Floating Point Unit) on a computer
motherboard would be a logical comparison to this area if the
"pillars" are interpreted as "holes" and the open area is the
hollowed out area of the "socket".
The layout of the Temple of Horus resembles the collection of
a CPU, a BIOS chip, a RAM chip and a Co-Processor socket
found in today's modern computers. Computers obviously didn't exist
in Ancient Egypt because they lacked the technology and the
Therefore, this tells us the design of the Temple of Horus,
as well as the Abydos helicopter glyph, are residual memories
of a previous high-tech civilization which disappeared from the face
of the Earth thousands of years before modern recorded history
