God King Scenario

Venus ionosphere cometThe God King Scenario is a Velokovsky/Ackerman and Electric Universe theory inspired series of mythology books and a website run by Gary Gilligan.

At the moment it is investigating the Egyptian world and mythology - especially the crazy numbers and physical characteristics of Egypts Gods, Goddesses and Pharaoh Kings.

EU theory tries to explain through what is actually observed. EU mythology using comparative mythology attempts to do this and come up with explanations that are radical. Plasma mythology investigators such as Immanuel Velikovsky, David Talbott, Alfred de Grazia, Rens van der Sluijs, Dwardu Cardona, Ev Cochrane, Anthony Peratt Jno Cook and others have described or concluded amazing things that make no sense in a gravity universe.

WYSIWYG mythology

God King Scenario GKS Gary Gilligan review

Gary Gilligan in his God King Scenario has taken the WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) approach to Egyptian mythology to a new level. Hour upon hour of observing ancient Egypt mythology (standing in front of Egyptian hieroglyphics, artwork and statues in museums) and thinking about all the surreal God and Pharaoh titles and epithets may mean. He has come up with what even for Electric Universe mythology interpretation is radical.

You may not agree with most or any of Gilligan's interpretations of what and which Egyptian gods and Pharaohs are named, but you may see something in his reasoning behind it. Even Jno Cook has positve things to say about Gilligan's God King Scenario thinking and writing.

God King Scenario alternative Egyptian mythology EU

A controversial example to start with is that Aten is the planet Mercury and was the iron core of Mars. In an Electric Universe it was electromagnetically attracted (or repelled?) out through the Valles Marineris.

Or that the headdresses of the Pharaohs and Gods are pictorial representations of events happening in the sky, such as the new planet Venus as the comet Venus crown of Nefertari and Ramesses with his comet Mars crown.

The GKS might just give you some intriguing possibilities and potential alternative explanations for the psychedelic madness that is ancient Egypt's mythology.

Could GKS also be transferred into other civilisations mythologies and folklore?

[Gary Gilligan] claims the Egyptian god Amun wears a crown that is the aurora - sacred colours that have been eroded or flaked away from stone monuments over the millennia. The parallel is of course with the bright tail feathers of the quetzal bird, cognate within the Mesoamerican god Quetzalcoatl. Such stone statues and monuments, even temples and buildings, were once colourful affairs. Sometimes these can be put back into place by computer simulation - but generally, most of the evidence has been lost - or even brushed aside by archaeologists intent on the visible object in front of them rather than it's detritus on the ground. Apparently, Mesopotamian ziggurats were colourful buildings - reflecting aurora (perhaps).

Planet and Earthly God Kings scenario

Hatshepsut Sphinx Hathor

Most of the GKS is alternative to the alternative EU mythology, so only a couple of intriguing ideas are mentioned below.

Gary Gilligan suggests that the Egyptian ka (double) is not a spiritual double but a physical double or representation. That the God King Pharaohs were earthly doubles of whatever planet was closest to the Earth at that time or celestial phenomena was dominating or happening in our ancient skies. With repeated planetary encounters as a new planet came to rule the sky then a new Pharaoh linked to this new God Planet would then rule both the Upper Kingdom and Lower Kingdom. If a God King Planet moved away or usurped the recent King planet then that Pharaoh was also removed from his position of power and the throne. As above, so below.

Perhaps an explanation for the mystery and puzzle of why Egyptian Pharaohs reigns and names changed so much and there were multiples of the same God Kings (God planets in the skies)?

hathor Sobekneferu
Queen Sobekneferu with large ears, oval eyes, destroyed image similar to Hatshepsut?

Also perhaps when comet Venus repeatedly approached the Earth and was the most important planet in the ancient Egyptian skies that female Venus assumed the throne of the Pharaoh - Egypt Queens.

Hatshepsut who reigned with another man (Thutmose III the other main planet in the sky closest to Earth at the same time?) and then was the King. So the Queen had to be King and to show that even though she was still a Queen she was a God King she was depicted as wearing male pharaonic attire.

Then as the reign of Venus went on or its physical manifestations changes so Hatshepsut's depiction become more manly or normal?

The God King Scenario has alternative ideas or names for some (most?) of the Egyptian deities and Pharaohs they represent. This will and does upset Egyptian purists and most EU mythologists.

Gods as above, so below

Amun Aurora
The God King theory also suggests that the gods are representations of celestial events and phenomenon seen in ancient Egypt's skies - plasma discharges, electromagnetic plasma objects, planets being born and fighting with each other, dust and debris on massive scale from these numerous God planetary wars etc.

The god Amun as a representation of the Earth's aurora but in a magnitude and splendour not seen in recent history. Some Amun epithets:

  • Mysterious of form
  • Who raised high the sky
  • Prince of rays and beams of light
  • The flame which sendeth forth rays of light with mighty splendour
  • One creator who has millions of forms & transformations
  • Secret of manifestations and sparkling of shape

Amun is commonly shown in a human form standing or sitting on a throne and wearing a red flat topped crown with two tall plumes. He also holds a sceptre - symbol of the thunderbolt. Amun was especially popular in the NK period (mid to late 2nd millennium BC) and he was known as King of the Gods (at that moment in time). Gilligan produces an image of Amun with blue skin, a yellow kilt and red crown. the two tall plumes are segmented into blue, red, and green. He then compares this with a photograph of aurora and suggests the crown is a symbolic representation of an intense geomagnetic storm. A wonderful insight.

Tutankhamun pectoral Mars mythology

And that the Pharaoh as the living embodiment of the Pharaoh in the sky was of a similar type. And if that planet disappeared then the earthly reign of the its earthly King also disappeared. The imagery and sudden death of Tutankhamun may be explained as a God King example.

Was Pharaoh Tutankhamun's pectoral a representation of planet Mars in a more active Electric Universe? Did Tutankhamuns reign start and end suddenly as his sponsoring God began and ended surprisingly sudden?

God King Scenario reviews

GKS stands for "God-King Scenario" and promotes the book An Ancient World in Chaos (2008) by Gary Gilligan with offers for two additional books. An analysis of Egyptian iconography, refreshingly direct and unpretentious, which assigns the Gods of Egypt to the known planets and Hathor to an equatorial ring system.

A couple of the God King Scenario books have been investigated and discussed on the Everythings Electric mythology forum, with the author contributing by explaining further questions asked by others.

Gary Gilligan, in An Ancient World in Chaos (2008), has demonstrated that, with very few exceptions, the hundreds of battles that Egypt fought over a 3000-year period, always led by the Pharaoh and always won by the Egyptians, never happened on Earth, but were observed to have happened in the skies. He points out the complete lack of archaeological evidence for any (or for most) battles. For example, at the Battle of Kadesh in circa 1287 BC, probably the most famous battle of antiquity, 20,000 Egyptians engaged 40,000 Hittites. Yet not one bone or war artifact has been found despite the inscriptions by Rameses II telling of tens of thousands of dead soldiers. Gilligan claims that Kadesh itself also has not been found.
