Egypt, Egypt Everywhere: Night @ Museum II

David D brought up this film in a recent comment, which I had been studiously avoiding. It's still a rental- at best, and a RedBox rental at that- but check out this synopsis:

When the Museum of Natural History is closed for upgrades and renovations, the museum pieces are moved into federal storage at the famous Washington Museums... With a forwarded resume, Larry (Ben Stiller) becomes another caretaker at the Smithsonian, where Kahmunrah, an evil Pharaoh will come to life with the reestablishing of a tablet as a magical force in the museum bringing the old exhibits (Such as Theodore Roosevelt and Dexter) and new exhibits (like General Custer and Al Capone) back to life, and in conflict with each other. Larry enlists the help of Amelia Earhart, who he develops a romantic interest in, and together they try to put everything back in order.

Falls in love with Amelia Earhart, eh? Interesting. By the way, Amy Adams plays the androgynous aviator.

Some of you might recognize the plot to this film borrows from the basic premise of the old Mummies Alive cartoon, which ran briefly on kiddie TV from somewhere in the mid 90s or so. That in turn borrowed heavily from the Golden Age Hawkman, which in turn borrows from Bram Stoker's Jewel of the Seven Stars.

Speaking of all these reincarnated spirits, loved the bit on Sacagaewa in the trailer. Reminded me of the early days of this blog, when I looked at the interesting similarities between the golden dollar and Aleister Crowley's novel, which inspired Jack Parsons to perform the Babalon Working.

And hey- when did the Smithsonian change their logo to this? Looks like they too are hopping on the Solar Logos logo bandwagon. I hear all the kids are doing it...


  1. In regards to the solar logo thing -it does seem that all the kids are doing it:-) I was wondering if you had an opinion about Picnett and Prince's The Stargate Conspiracy-I just started reading it yesterday and it seems like its going to be very interesting-but I know almost nothing about Egyptology or their reputation-thanks again for your great blog and hard work-all the best to you!!

  2. Hi Devin,

    I think there's a lot of interesting information in it, but there are some very serious flaws in its thesis. But my attitude to accept no one's conclusions, only their data.

    I use these books to help gather and point to new informational streams. In that light it's a useful resource indeed.

  3. Chris..I tried to email you but you don't post an address. I'm having problems loading your site and it's easily correctable in your blogger template. There are too many vids on the page because all of your very interesting posts load for the month instead of, say, 7 days. Your time stamp is time only and that is insufficient for psychosynchristers who need to know the date, and time stamp to the second. And, again, no email address?

  4. Ah- you mean the archive- I get it. Good call, I'll archive weekly.

  5. Thanks for your opinion on that book Christopher-I knew if there was one person I could go to about that particular book it would be you-at first I was kind of wowed by what seemed to be their knowledge-but it seems to me anyway that they knock quite a few other people and their work-and I know far too little about ancient Egypt to be my own guide-thanks also for your hard work over the years at The Secret Sun and have a great weekend!!

  6. Hey Chris

    What if Ancient Egyptians, immortalized out among the stars, have achieved a level of consciousness where they are able to move in and out of human experience at will? Unlike us, they are not confined to a single physical body, but are enlightened enough to be able to come and go as they see fit - to choose their own experiences.

    What if they deliberately choose high profile people, so as to have the more interesting/fun/exciting experiences? And what if they tend to leave subtle clues as to their presence, while they are here? Perhaps unintentionally - like having someone get out of a pool and then walk through your house - wet footprints would give them away.

    Interestingly enough, you've just featured walk-ins over on the Solar Satellite. I'm thinking the Egyptian walk-ins would be completely benign - enlightened enough to respect their hosts free-will. This would obviously be in direct contrast to say a full on evil walk in (requiring exorcism).

    It's funny because video games are like this - we inject ourselves into a situation and assume a role in order to have the experience we desire. No doubt the future will see this becoming more and more realistic and convincing.

    Lately I've been becoming a bit iffy about technology, because what if it is a crude substitute for genuine enlightenment - a mass distraction?


  7. Interesting questions, David. I guess we'd have to look for more evidence of it. There are all of these interesting connections- it makes you wonder.

  8. I guess that's the point of the questions: to merely introduce the possibility. At present, it is undoubtedly pure conjecture.

    Do certain people have certain recurring themes surrounding them? Especially those in high public profile.

    I think we definitely need to keep an eye on the Stars.

    Which is pretty much a huge part of what you already do so well here!
