Thoth's other names include:
Lord of the Khemenu
Thoth was the god who overcame the curse
of Ra, allowing Nut to give birth to her five children, with his
skill at games. It was he who helped Isis work the ritual to bring
Osiris back from the dead, and who drove the magical poison of Set
from her son, Horus with the power of his magic.
He was Horus' supporter during the young
god's deadly battle with his uncle Set, helping Horus with his
wisdom and magic. It was Thoth who brought Tefnut, who left Egypt
for Nubia in a sulk after an argument with her father, back to
heaven to be reunited with Ra.
Tefnut, the Eye of Ra, became
estranged from her father and fled into Nubia, taking all of her
precious water with her. In this land, she transformed herself
into a lioness. She raged through the countryside, emitting
flames from her eyes and nostrils. Viciously, she drank the
blood and fed on the flesh of both animals and humans.
As time went on, Ra missed his Eye, and longed to see her again
- Egypt had dried, and the land was in chaos. He summoned Shu to
him, along with Thoth, who was the messenger of the gods and
famous for his eloquence. Ra issued the command that Shu and
Thoth must go to Nubia and bring back his recalcitrant daughter.
Before they set off on their journey Shu and Thoth disguised
themselves as baboons. The baboon is an animal sacred to Thoth.
Eventually, Thoth and Shu found Tefnut in Begum. Thoth began at
once to try and persuade her to return to Egypt. Tefnut,
however, wasn't interested. She liked hunting in the desert and
was perfectly happy where she was.
Thoth would not give up though, and wove stories to depict to
her how gloom had descended upon Egypt since she had left. The
people of Egypt would do anything for her if she'd just return
home. Ultimately, wooed by Thoth's promises, Tefnut relented and
returned to Egypt accompanied by the two baboons.
All the way there, Thoth kept her entertained with stories.
Tefnut made a triumphant entry back into the homeland,
accompanied by a host of Nubian musicians, dancers and baboons.
She went from city to city, bringing back moisture and water,
amid great rejoicing, until finally she was reunited with her
father, and restored to her rightful position as his Eye.
When Ra retired from the earth, he
appointed Thoth and told him of his desire to create a Light-soul in
the Duat and in the Land of the Caves, and it was over this region
that the sun god appointed Thoth to rule, ordering him to keep a
register of those who were there, and to mete out just punishments
to them. Thoth became the representation of Ra in the afterlife,
seen at the judgment of the dead in the 'Halls of the Double Ma'at'.
The magical powers of Thoth were so great, that the Egyptians had
tales of a 'Book of Thoth', which would allow a person who read the
sacred book to become the most powerful magician in the world. The
Book which "the god of wisdom wrote with his own hand" was, though,
a deadly book that brought nothing but pain and tragedy to those
that read it, despite finding out about the "secrets of the gods
themselves" and "all that is hidden in the stars".
In art, Thoth was usually depicted with the head of an ibis,
deriving from his name, and the curve of the ibis' beak, which
resembles the crescent moon. Thoth the Scribe, wrote the story of
our reality then placed it into grids for us to experience and learn
through the alchemy of time and consciousness.
He was sometimes depicted with the face
of a dog-headed baboon and the body of a man or, again, as a full
dog-headed baboon. The ibis, it is thought, had a crescent shaped
beak, linking the bird to the moon.
The dog-headed baboon, on the
other hand, was a night animal that was seen by the Egyptians who
would greet the sun with chattering noises each morning just as Thoth, the moon god, would greet Ra, the sun god, as he rose.
[Baboon - symbol of evolution of the human experiment in time.]
Thoth became credited by the ancient
Egyptians as the inventor of writing, and was also considered to
have been the scribe of the underworld, and the moon became
occasionally considered a separate entity, now that Thoth had less
association with it, and more with wisdom. For this reason Thoth was
universally worshipped by ancient Egyptian Scribes.
Also, he became credited as the inventor of the 365-day (rather than
360-day) calendar, it being said that he had won the extra 5 days by
gambling with the moon, then known as Iabet, in a game of dice, for
1/72nd of its light (5 = 360/72).
When the Ennead and Ogdoad systems
started to merge, one result was that, for a time, Horus was
considered a sibling of Isis, Osiris, Set, and Nephthys, and so it
was said that Hathor/Nuit had been cursed against having children
during the (360) day year, but was able to have these five over the
5 extra days won by Thoth.
Thoth and Seshat
Thoth was thought to be scribe to the
gods, who kept a great library of scrolls, over which one of his
wives, Seshat (the goddess of writing) was thought to be mistress.
He was associated by the Egyptians with speech, literature, arts,
learning. He, too, was a measurer and recorder of time, as was
Many ancient Egyptians believed that
Seshat invented writing, while Thoth taught writing to mankind. She
was known as 'Mistress of the House of Books', indicating that she
also took care of Thoth's library of spells and scrolls.
Seshat is the Goddess
of Libraries, all forms
of Writing and the Measurement of Time.
Thoth and Ma'at
Believed to be the author of the spells in the
Book of the Dead, he
was a helper (and punisher) of the deceased as they try to enter the
underworld. In this role, his wife was Ma'at, the personification of
order, who was weighed against the heart of the dead to see if they
followed Ma'at during their life.
Centre of Worship
During the late period of Egyptian history a cult of Thoth gained
prominence, due to its main centre, Khnum (Hermopolis Magna), in
Upper Egypt also becoming the capital, and millions of dead ibis
were mummified and buried in his honor. The rise of his cult also
lead to his cult seeking to adjust mythology to give Thoth a greater
role, including varying the Ogdoad cosmogony myth so that it is
Thoth who gives birth to Ra/Atum/Nefertum/Khepri, as a result of
laying, as an ibis, an egg containing him.
Later it was said that this was done in
the form of a goose - literally as a goose laying a golden egg. The
sound of his song was thought to have created four frog gods and
snake goddesses of the Ogdoad who continued Thoth's song, helping
the sun journey across the sky.
Thoth was inserted in many tales as the wise counsel and persuader,
and his association with learning, and measurement, lead him to be
connected with Seshat, the earlier deification of wisdom, who became
said to be his daughter, or variably his wife. Thoth's qualities
also lead to him being identified by the Greeks with their closest
matching god - Hermes, with whom Thoth was eventually combined, as
Hermes Trismegistus, also leading to the Greeks naming Thoth's cult
centre as Hermopolis, meaning city of Hermes.

Djehuty (Thoth) after him, and who reigned for three years.
More About Thoth
Geometry - Reality - Time
Reality is myth, math, and metaphor. It is a consciousness computer
experiment in time and illusion created by thought consciousness.
The name Thoth means 'Thought' and 'Time'. Thoth was the master
architect who created the blueprint of our reality based on the
patterns of sacred geometry or 12 around 1. The program follows
binary code 1010101 [ON OFF ON OFF - Matter Anti-Matter] and repeats
in cycles called time.
It is here - in the duality - duat - underworld - chaos - void -
place of creation 'outside the box' of our experience - reflected in
gods and goddesses, the landscapes of Egypt including the pyramids
and temples - that we experience until we evolve in the alchemy of
time and consciousness.
Thoth created a grid program of
experience - electromagnetic in nature to allow for the bipolar
aspects of linear time and illusion. In so doing, we go to 4 [time]
and 3 [3D physical reality]. Thoth constructed a pyramidal shaped
vehicle which personifies the nature of reality.
He placed half
above - "As is Above" in the nonphysical and half below "As is
Below" thus creating the sands of time - the hourglass - the X Box -
at the center of the planet where it all began and will all evolve
at Zero Point - a time or place of balance.
Thoth was the 'god of the equilibrium'
and considered depictions of him as the 'Master of the Balance' to
indicate that he was associated with the precession of the equinoxes
- a time when the day and the night were balanced.
Thoth played a crucial role in the
design and orientation of many famous pyramids, temples and
ziggurats. Thoth as Hermes who was Merlin and
It is written in several ancient texts that Thoth wrote a major work
of scriptural importance that would one day be found.
Thoth allegedly wrote books in which he set forth fabulous knowledge
of magic and incantation then concealed them in a tomb/womb.
42 Books of Thoth
Thoth as Hermes in ancient Greece
complied the Hermetic Text referred to him as Kore Kosmu. What he
knew, he carved on stone [mataphor of physical plane] then hid most
of the information. The sacred symbols of the cosmic elements he hid
away using the secrets of Osiris, keeping and maintaining silence,
that younger ages of the cosmic time clock might seek them out.
Thoth was said to have succeeded in understanding the mysteries of
the heavens and to have revealed them by inscribing them in sacred
books which he then hid here on Earth, intending that they should be
searched for by future generations but found by those of the
Some of these sacred books are referred to as the 42 Books of
Instructions or the 42 Books of Thoth which describe the
instructions for achieving immortality plus 2 more books kept
separately. The dating of the books is somewhere between the third
century BC and the first century AD. Their influence has been
tremendous on the development of Western occultism and magic.
Neo-pagan witchcraft contains many rituals and much esoteric
symbolism based upon Hermetic writings.
According to one legend Hermes Trismegistus, who was a grandson of
Adam and a builder of the Egyptian pyramids, authored the books.
But, more probably the books were written by several succeeding
persons. According to legend, the books were initially written on
A chronicler of pagan lore, Clement of Alexandria, stated thirty-six
 of the Hermetic books contained the entire Egyptian philosophy:
four  books on astrology
ten  books called the Hieratic on
ten  books on sacred rites and observances
two  on
and the rest on writing, cosmography, geography, mathematics
and measures and training of priests
six  remaining books
concerned medicine and the body discussing diseases, instruments,
the eyes and women
Most of the Hermetic books - along with others -
were lost during the burning of the royal libraries in Alexandria.
The surviving books were secretly buried in the desert where they
are presently located. A few initiates of the mystery schools,
ancient secret cults, allegedly know their location. What remains of
the surviving Hermetic lore has been passed down through generation
and published in many languages.
Most important of all are three works.
The most important and oldest is

his ministry to spread this wisdom throughout the world. The

centuries AD but lost none of its meaning due to incorrect

Mercury is god of trade and profit, merchants and
travelers, but originally of the trade in corn. In
times he was equated with the Greek Hermes. He had a temple
in Rome near the Circus Maximus on the Aventine Hill which
dates back to 495 BCE. This temple was connected to some
kind of trade fair. His main festival, the Mercuralia, was
celebrated on May 15 and on this day the merchants sprinkled
their heads and their merchandise with water from his well
near the Porta Capena.
During the time of the Roman Empire the cult of Mercury was
widely spread, especially among the Celtic and Germanic
peoples. The Celts have their Gaulish Mercury, and the

Mercury are the caduceus (a staff with two intertwined

Quetzalcoatl was identified to Atlantida, Egypt, Sumer, then later to Mesoamerica and Peru
as Quetzacoatl. Quetzalcoatl ("feathered snake") is the

northern Central American civilizations.
The name "Quetzalcoatl" literally means quetzal-bird snake
or serpent with feathers of the Quetzal (which implies
something divine or precious) in the Nahuatl language. The

religion in most of Mesoamerica for close to 2,000 years,
from the Pre-Classic era until the Spanish Conquest.

worship of Quetzalcoatl sometimes included human sacrifices,

Duality itself runs rampant in myth, as well as being found
in the astronomical/cosmological associations between
Quetzalcoatl and the heavens and stars. Questions run the
gamut from his morning star associations (as Venus) to the
possibilities of his connection with Mercury. Ultimately it
is this symbolism that runs through the myth and its
astrological and cosmological incarnations which raise the
questions and hint at Quetzalcoatl's power and
There is a pre-Incan legend that
