Part 3: Egyptian Images of Tehotu on the Temple of Teotu-Huacan
There are Egyptian hieroglyphics and images on the temple complexes of
That is the end of the story. I wasn't looking for any of this when I
In my earliest research, I was fascinated with how Greek images seemed to
appear in Aztec art. In particular, the center of the Aztec calendar showed an
unmistakable resemblance to Medussa, accompanied with two snakes.
After travelling with my wife and doing the historical tours of the Valley of
Mexico, I was astonished to find many cultural artifacts of previous
civilizations in Aztec art, including Greek, Egyptian, Judaic, Atlantean, and
even French-Templar symbolism.
Motecuzoma, also known as Montezuma told Cortez through an interpreter
"You are not the first person to come here, looking like you do with beards
and blue eyes, there are whole tribes like you down by the coast and I will
introduce them to you." (Readings from America, out of print) Legend among the
Aztecs was that their ancestors had lived in seven caves, when white men with
beards, blonde hair and iron tools had organized their small tribe into the most
dominant tribe in the Valley of Mexico. Chief among these blond hair giants was
a person named "Quetzalcoatl", who was a great teacher and leader, but was
eventually defeated, fled to the East and vowed to return someday.
- Quetzal-coatl means, in Aztec... "Hummingbird-snake" or "feathered
- "Quetzal" in Greek and French (oiseaux) means "bird".
- Huitzilo-pochtli, another flavor of "Quetzal", means... "Hummingbird on
the left" in Aztec.
Mesopotamia, Sumerian Connections
Motecuzoma or "Montezuma" himself related that his ancient ancestors had come
to the area originally by boats from the East. His name "Mo-tecu zoma" includes
the "Mu"-"Divine chief" "soma", "zuma" which means "Moon God" in Sumerian and
Vedic astrology is based on the Moon and its 27 Lunar Mansions
known as the Nakshatras. The Nakshatras are a fundamental feature of most lunar
based astrological systems, such as Chinese, and of course, Indian. Also, this
powerful ruler of the night (named Soma) in Indian astrology and
mythology was regarded as a male deity; a god and not a goddess. According to
Hindu lore, Soma considers the 27 Lunar Mansions as his resting places as he
journeys through the zodiac.
Among the many fascinating similarities are the often-occuring Aztec name of
"Coyotl" and "Huacan", such as CoyoHuacan.
Based on everything that I know and have learned, I believe this
CoyoHuacan name should be compared with the ancient Mesopotamian settlement
of "Catal Huyuk".
The Aztec holy mountain of Chimal Huacan is strikingly close in
pronunciation to "Shamash Huacan", which would translate to the
Babylonian "Sun God Temple", and coincide nicely with the Atlantean
reference to Mt. Helicon, Mountain of the Sun God.
As pointed out earlier, I believe there is the profound similarity between
Mashkan-Shapir of Mesopotamia and Mishocan-Chapultepec of the Valley
of Mexico, and the anglicized name of Michigan-Superior.
Just a Coincidence?
There are Aztec geographic locations listed on the Davalos map which use "Huacan"
as a suffix, such as Acol-huacan, Tenayocan, Aca-yocan, Chimal-huacan, and
In this 'suffix" usage, the definition appears to mean..."Temple of".
Khan is King, Khon is Moon God, Huacan is Temple!
Another coincidence is the similarity with war lords of ... "Genghis
Khan", "Kublai Khan", the Babylonian moon God (Khon), or the names of Judaic
high priests (Cohen), the tribal chief of the Hawaii Kai (Kahoona), and the
Is "khan" the English root derivative of "King"?
Maybe this is just a coincidence of like-sounding names, maybe not!
A. Right Side of Staircase: Teotu-Huacan, Temple of the Sun and Moon in
the Valley of Mexico
My focus turned to the Temple of Teotu-huacan which is a 5-square mile
complex of buildings, avenues and temples Northeast of Mexico City. I took
photographs, had them developed.
Six months later, after much study, I kept noticing faint-latent images on
the western wall of Teotuhuacan. This temple complex was covered in volcanic mud
and hurricane and mud-slide debree when the Conquistadors arrived 500 years ago.
Even the Aztecs could not explain the "hills" in the middle of the Valley.
As explained by Graham Hancock, this temple complex was excavated in the
1880s. Restoration efforts were catastrophically bad, and even mica materials
were MINED !!! from the top of the temple complex. Artistic images on three
sides of the temple were obliterated. Only the western wall remained somewhat
intact, from which comes the significant quotation from Graham Hancock,
paraphrased... "The animal-God images (on the western wall of Teotuhuacan)
are the identical animal-God images used by the Egyptians".
These images are what I focused on. I believe I have found their translations
and meanings from various sources.
I am not an Egyptologist or Archaeologist. I am an amateur historian, and
mostly an interested tourist. I have realized the complexity of trying to
understand and date and interpret faint, partially visible images, and the
dark-tile staircase, all under the umbrella of 5000 years of evolving history,
and re-volving mythologies!
In fact, one may take the photographs and still be unaware of the existence
of any images on the Western wall of Teotuhuacan. Only with the use of
Adobe® Photoshop®, playing with the contrast and color balances have I drawn out these
images. Many other images are half-visible, and still undeciphered, from the
western wall. It might take space age technologies to unearth all the 15 or so
images once painted on these walls.
What I have found: Tehotu on the Temple of Teotu.
My first image is the temple complex itself. This is officially known as
"Temple of the Sun".
Teotihuacan, Pyramid of the Sun
The left side of the staircase contains the following images... right to
Tehotu, also known as Thoth, aka Djeheuty, known in
early Egyptian times as the Ibis bird, ... is the large beaked-bird image facing
left (north), projecting something out of his beak and staff, towards the animal
images to his front.
Tehotu, also known as Thoth, aka Djeheuty
Tehotu carries a staff, and also has faint "wings" on his back. He is
"projecting his magic" and his actions are explained by Wallis Budge in the book
"Egyptian Magic", 1904 pg 143...
"If thou wouldst read a book possesses of magic powers, come with
me and I will show it to thee, the book was written by Thoth himself, and in it
were two formulae. The recital of the first will enchant (or bewitch) heaven,
earth, hell, sea, and mountains, and by it thou shalt see all the birds,
reptiles and fish, for its power will bring the fish to the top of the water."
"Head of Osiris" is the round object to the left of Tehotu, and at the
foot of Tehotu... explained by the legend of the head of Osiris "talking to the
Note: Osiris was also known in later times as "Soker-Osiris", and I find
it amazing that the head of Osiris appears "like a soccer ball", at the feet of
Tehotu. It appears that Soker-Osiris has been butchered and is in disgrace, as
explains by the legend of the banishment of Osiris to the underworld, by the
Emerging Sun God "Ra".
Shesheta is the kneeling or sitting object to the left of the "head of
Osiris", identified with a crown of 7 stars with a center star. I believe this
crown depicts the star cluster known as the "7 sisters plus goat star", or the
"7 scorpions", or the Pleadis star cluster, or the "stars that never move".
Shesheta is the official scribe of Tehotu, and possibly his wife.
To the left of Shesheta are Four Animal Images, transcending from
lower level to higher level, under the "gaze" and "magic" of Tehotu...
Theoretically, their names could be associated with the "Sebau Fiends"...
(this needs an Egyptologist to name)
- Hesamut, or Reret, or Draco, a Hippo-like creature
- Set/Sirius, a dog-like creature, probably also known as "Coyotl"
- Tortoise of unknown naming convention
- Set/Sebek Crocodile figure
This completes the "cast of characters" for the left of the staircase.
B. Right of the Staircase: Huacan, the Snake-dog "Evil of Evils"
To the right of the staircase is an extremely faint image of Set/Sirius, also
known to the Aztecs as Coyotl, aka Coyote. History calls this animal in many
ways and forms, sometimes a God to be feared, sometimes a God to be worshipped,
and at all times, a God to be respected. His head is portrayed oftentimes as a
dog-head with a snake's tail.
Huacan, the Snake-Dog aka... Set, Setekh
(Click on the image to enlarge)
The main dog-faced figure is cradling the head of Osiris, I believe, while
Apep the snake bites into the crown. This follows the legend of Set butchering
his brother, and the diminishment of Osiris the God, in favor of Horus Ra (the
son of Osiris) who is reborn each day on the horizon seeking revenge against
Set. This faint-painted drama also may have astronomical implications, such as
"The Gemini twins with the Scorpio tail", or "Sagitarius in opposition to
Scorpio", as mentioned in the fantastic book,
Galactic Alignment by John Major Jenkins. This dog-faced "evil character" is
identical in look to a "devil" statue found in Babylon and now residing in the
Note: I can't help but wonder about the similarity between the name "Set",
Setekh, and "Coyote". Are they the same names?
The dog-faced image on "Teotu-Huacan" may have Japanese coincidental
mythologies such as the name for the dragon-fire, Kai Yu, the dragon with the
long tail who spits flames, which might originate from this
Khut-Coyote-Setekh naming convention, very similar to the Hawaii Kai of
Over 5000 years, this same Huacan name appears as "Oregon" on the West Coast
of the United States, and Yukon to the Inuit of Canada, and Yucatan to the
Mayan. The English name of the dog-snake "Huacan" is the "Hurricane", the most
evil of all weather systems.
Through all of history, cultures would revere and fear and praise the natural
forces that were entirely out of their control, such as the Typhoon and
Hurricane, both names also refer to the ancient Egyptian and Aztecan God Set -Setekh.
For these reasons, I believe, the root-derivative of Hua-can carries many
meanings... explained by "An Egyptian Hieroglyphic Dictionary", Wallis Budge
- U serpent or serpent God pg 144
- Uai Rebel or blasphemer... title of Apep pg 145
- ua to attack, to smite, to destroy pg 145
- Uaiu "associates of Apep", one of the premier snake Gods of Egypt pg 145
Likewise, the suffix "khan" of Hua-Can has many similar meanings.
- Kha God, or group of Gods pg 527
- Khutt serpent Goddess pg 537
- Khu-t Protection, power, rule, charm, amulet, talisman pg 537
- Khuit-mu fire-goddess pg 537
- Khut-Tuat a fiery, blood drinking serpent (compare with Coyote and Da-kota,
- khut evil pg 538
- Khaitiu Gods who slaughter the enemies of Ra
- Khon Moon God
In the case of the Davalos map, I believe the "Huacan" suffix of the
Teotuhuacan name is used to mean "Serpent God Temple of the Moon".
C. Staircase of Teotu-huacan is Anpu/Anubis
Dark stones mark the staircase. These dark stones are very similar to
depictions of the Jackal-headed God, Anpu/Anubis who represents the Venus
dawn star, "He who greets Ra", the morning sun. Likewise, Anpu is associated
with Venus at dawn and setting-sun time frames.
For the Lakota-Sioux version of Anpu/Anubis, lookup on Yahoo/Google... "Anpao
Jackal-headed God, Anpu/Anubis
The two dog ears of Anpu portray these two aspects of the Venus appearances
during the day, dawn and dusk. In my artistic rendition below, a 5-pointed
pentagram outlines this staircase arrangement, and in more modern times was
associated with "the devil". In rare instances, the two ears of Anpu were
portrayed as a 5th and 6th point of a "pentagram", indicating the rising/setting
sun associated with the various constellations of each era. (the Sun rises and
sets towards a varying array of 12 constellation signs)
Note: Modern portrayals of the "devil" show "two horns", and I believe this
originates from the depiction of Venus having the two aspects, of the rising and
setting sun, also displayed by the "two ears" of Anpu, the Jackal headed God.
Egyptian portrayals of the Jackal-God Anpu consistenly show him wearing neck
rings (neck protector), and chest rings (chest protector), along with wrist
bands, three chest straps on the left, and one on the right. This identical
garment portrayal, and positioning on the western wall facing East towards the
rising sun, and the outstretched gesture known as the hieroglyphic "in praise of
Ra", is how I first-identifed the Anpu deity image as being the dark stones of
Note: Only the double-ear top is missing.
D. Electrical Architecture?
Graham Hancock mentioned in his book the remarkable electrical properties of
temples in Egypt and Teotuhuacan, where the stone mica was used as a platform at
the top. The actual temple structure was placed on top of the mica, giving the
top of the temple a Capacitor functionality. Apparently, woolen ?? curtains were
hung at the top, generating static charges.
My assumption is that sacrificial victims would climb the stairs to the top
of the temple, and they were "electrically, earth ground". The victims would
step onto the temple platform, and be zzzzzapped by the Priest.
Or, spark displays could be performed at the top of the temples, to impress
the throngs down below of the God-like presence at the top of the temple. These
displays could have modern names, such as "Jacob's ladder", or "Spark-gap
generators", or who knows what.
My point of this is that Anpu was "garmented" like a giant electromagnet,
with coils on his neck and chest and arms, with straps that look like
conductors. Any priest, dressed in this manner, at the top of a temple,
electrically isolated from the bottom of the temple by the mica stone, could
potentially attract metallic objects, like an electromagnet!
Were these coils around the Anpu body metallic or fiber material?
Aztec art contains cross-like objects, possibly meaning the cardinal points
of North-East-South-West, but possibly indicating electomotor armatures, much
like the Templars Coss, or Maltese Cross, or Iron Cross of the Teutonic Knights.
It intrigues me, that ancient peoples may have experimented with crude
electromotive force and magnetism, and some scholars claim there may be crude
examples of electro-transmissions and receptions, with Anpu's garments possibly
showing the schematic of connections, the inductive coils, and the
PS. Nicholas Tesla is said to have studied Teotuhuacan and its architecture,
and I am fascinated how quickly several scientists went from light-bulb
generation (1879) to wireless Morse transmitters (1901) and television
transmitters (1927)! Did they copy the ancients?
E. Geographic Layout indicates "Left Hand of Orion" (my theory)
In addition to the imagery on the Western Wall of Teotuhuacan, it will
certainly take scholarly study and review to understand the geographic
positioning of the temple complex, as if mimicing the "left hand of Orion"
carrying a mace weapon (Avenue of Death).
Or maybe, this is all a coincidence!? I don't think so. 1000 or 10,000
authors before me don't think so either.
The Valley of Mexico was a mirror-image of the Giza
for astronomical measurement purposes.
The three stuctures listed as Chimalpan, C. Chimalhuacan, and Chimalhuacan
are the mirror image, I believe of Khafre, Khufu, and Menkaure. The
"clone" of Giza, I believe, was first mentioned by thor Heyerdahl who
said many civilizations built their cities along the astronomical layout of
Orion, these three being "the belt of Orion".
The Valley of Mexico was chosen as a Giza clone, probably because at one time
it was on an exact same latitude as Giza.
Giza is now at 29 degrees north, and Mexico is 19 degrees north, but in the
ancient past, I theorize the latitudes were the same. Due to precessional drift (which the ancients
determined to be a cycle of 26000 years), latitude of Giza drifted 5 degrees
north, and Mexico, 5 degrees more south ...
