Let’s return to Egypt, to the Valley of the Kings. We are going to visit the tomb of Ramses VI, a pharaoh of the 20th dynasty, during the New Kingdom period. We go down and inside, to the upper level J, to the central part of the right-hand wall. Here is the image that interests us (Fig. 3)
It is a fragment from the Book of the Earth, Part A, Scene 7. This image contains several layers of information, but we shall concentrate for the moment on the main thing. The figure in the centre of the composition is covered with yellow paint. Semen is dripping from his phallus onto the head of the little human figure. What associations does that bring to your mind? Egyptologists thought the same.

Scene 7, from the tomb of Ramses VI
in the Valley of the Kings
Everything depicted here explains in brilliantly concrete fashion that:
The figure in the centre is the sun, hence the golden yellow colour of his body. The phallus and semen allude to the giving of life! Look again – running through the centre of the figure is a curved line – that’s an orbit. It passes through the third chakra (the solar plexus), which is a direct indication of the number of the orbit. TWO planets are shown on this orbit: one in front of the figure, the other behind.
This composition plainly states that on the orbit of the Earth (the third out from the Sun) TWO planets are moving: the Earth and some other body. The Sun looks at the Earth, the size (mass) of which is less than the size of the planet behind the Sun's back. It is located diametrically opposite us, behind the Sun, so we cannot see it! It is located diametrically opposite us, behind the Sun, so we cannot see it! Evidently the Egyptians were seeking to set down for perpetuity information obtained from the Neferu. It therefore survived not only on the walls of tombs in the Valley of the Kings, but also in the cosmogony of the Pythagorean Philolaus, who asserted too that behind the Sun (which he called ‘Hestia’ – the central hearth) on there was a body similar to our own planet – the Counter-Earth (Fig. 4).
If you are getting excited, but still dubious, here are some curious facts recorded by astronomers:
Early on the morning of 25 January 1762, Gian Domenico Cassini, the director of the Paris Observatory, discovered close to Venus an unknown crescent-shaped body that cast a shadow – a direct indication that this was a large planet and not a star. Venus too was crescent-shaped at that moment and at first Cassini believed that he had found a satellite of the second planet.
The body was of very large size. Cassini estimated its diameter as a quarter that of Venus. The same astronomer left another next record of observing this planet in 1672. Fourteen years later, on 18 August 1686, Cassini saw the same body again, an event he recorded in his diary.
On 23 October 1740, shortly before sunrise, the mysterious planet was spotted by James Short, a member of the Royal Society (of science) and an amateur astronomer. Aiming his telescope at Venus, he saw very close to it a little “starlet”. Pointing another telescope at it that had a magnification of 50–60 and was fitted with a micrometer, he determined its distance from Venus, which was around 10.2˚ Venus could be seen exceptionally clearly. The air was very clear and so Short took a look at this “starlet” at a magnification of 240 and, to his enormous surprise, discovered that it was in the same phase as Venus. That is to say the planet lit by the Sun had the same kind of crescent-shaped shadow as could be observed on the visible disc of Venus. The diameter of the planet was roughly a third that of Venus. Its light was not as bright or clear, but had exceptionally sharp, precise edges due to the fact that it lay considerably further from the Sun than Venus. A line passing through the centre of Venus and the planet formed an angle of around 18–20˚ with the equator of Venus. Short observed the planet for an hour, but the Sun’s light increased and he lost it around 8.15 in the morning.
