9.7 – THE WISDOM KEEPERS (6.24.16)

EGYPTIANS IN AUSTRALIA [8d]

Central Coast, New South Wales, Australia. Deep in the Brisbane Water National Park is a mysterious site known as the Gosford Glyphs. The site consists of two massive, eight-foot-high walls engraved with over 300 ancient carvings, carvings that experts say do not resemble indigenous artwork, but Egyptian hieroglyphs. After deciphering the texts, 21st-century Egyptologist Raymond Johnson believed them to reveal the burial site of Lord Nefer-ti-ru, a member of the Egyptian royal family who died while visiting the area with his brother sometime between 2637 to 2614 BC. While visiting the area in 2016, Giorgio A. Tsoukalos met with local Ancient Astronaut Theorist, Evan Strong, to get a firsthand look at these enigmatic carvings.

“And here we are.”

Evan Strong (Co-Author, Ancient Aliens in Australia)

“That’s incredible. I had no idea, I mean, this looks totally different than on pictures. So, what do these hieroglyphs say?”

– Giorgio A. Tsoukalos
(Publisher, Legendary Times Magazine)

“Well, at least one panel talks about two brothers, two princes, coming here from Egypt. They were shipwrecked. One of them ended up getting bitten by a snake, he then died. The theory is, then, he was interred here, and that’s why you’ve got hieroglyphs here…because he died here. But there’s these other walls with a mixture of symbols. This one over here, it’s more of a philosophical astrophysics style thing with symbols meaning all sorts of esoteric stuff, so…”

Evan Strong (Co-Author, Ancient Aliens in Australia)

“Now, have these symbols at all been interpreted by Egyptologists?”

– Giorgio A. Tsoukalos
(Publisher, Legendary Times Magazine)

“There have been a few, actually. A few different people have done that.”

Evan Strong (Co-Author, Ancient Aliens in Australia)

“And what was their reaction?”

– Giorgio A. Tsoukalos
(Publisher, Legendary Times Magazine)

“Well, Raymond Johnson was one of the first people to come here and translate. He actually sent some of his translations off to the Cairo Library, and Dr. Abou Di’ Ghazi ended up saying ‘Yep, you’re on the right track.’ It’s something called proto-Egyptian.”

Evan Strong (Co-Author, Ancient Aliens in Australia)

“And how old do you reckon these are?”

– Giorgio A. Tsoukalos
(Publisher, Legendary Times Magazine)

“We’re thinking, because of the prevalence at least in one panel of proto-Egyptian, that it’s about 4,600 years old.”

Evan Strong (Co-Author, Ancient Aliens in Australia)

“Are there any hieroglyphs that stand out to you?”

– Giorgio A. Tsoukalos
(Publisher, Legendary Times Magazine)

“Yeah, definitely. Follow me down here and I’ll show you this other one. So, this one here, we call the UFO glyph and people have called it that since they’ve been coming here because it kind of looks like a UFO.”

Evan Strong (Co-Author, Ancient Aliens in Australia)

“It definitely has the classic UFO shape. It’s got the rays or whatever you want to call it. What would you suggest if anyone says, ‘Well, this is not a UFO, it’s some other symbol – but certainly not that’?”

– Giorgio A. Tsoukalos
(Publisher, Legendary Times Magazine)

“I think that someone suggested that it’s jewelry, but it’s a completely different symbol that’s upside down and it really doesn’t quite fit in. It’s one of those symbols here that doesn’t fit into the canon.”

Evan Strong (Co-Author, Ancient Aliens in Australia)

“In your opinion, why do you think the Egyptians made it all the way to Australia?”

– Giorgio A. Tsoukalos
(Publisher, Legendary Times Magazine)

“I think they were looking for esoteric wisdom, definitely.”

Evan Strong (Co-Author, Ancient Aliens in Australia)

“From the Aboriginals?”

– Giorgio A. Tsoukalos
(Publisher, Legendary Times Magazine)

“Yes.”  – Evan Strong (Co-Author, Ancient Aliens in Australia)

“The ancient Egyptians, we have stories, and Aboriginal stories, about their arrival, and about their visits long before Europeans had arrived here. Naturally, we would have shared ceremony with these people because they have the same similar beliefs as our people. Egyptians have that same spiritual connection to the sky world.”

Kevin Gavi Duncan (Aboriginal Elder)

“Many stories from all over this continent, not just from here, but all over this continent, talk about those who came by the sea and came to these continents, and some of our knowledge and wisdom and technology went back with them, and if you do some of the research, in the last pyramids that they found, they found boomerangs made from ironbark from here, and they have hieroglyphs of black fellows throwing the boomerangs to take out the ducks and the geese. Now the question would be, why would they paint us and carve us on their walls if they didn’t come here? And if that meeting and relationship was not significant, they wouldn’t have carved it. It must’ve been significant in order to carve.”

Gary Simon Jagamarra (Aboriginal Elder & Healer)

Aboriginal artifacts found in Egypt? Hieroglyphs found in Australia? Might the continent have actually served as a pilgrimage site for visitors seeking a direct connection to the so-called gods? Ancient Astronaut Theorists say yes, and suggest further evidence of this otherworldly link can be found in a megalithic structure lost to time.
