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. Who can even start to understand what thinking or madness inspired it?
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.
A very controversial example to start with, even for plasma cosmology based on a banned Wiki pseudoscience, is that the planet God king Aten is the planet Mercury and was the iron core of Mars. In an electromagnetic 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
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)?
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
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.

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?
Up and Aten
Gilligan suggests that Mercury is the electromagnetically extracted core of planet Mars and that the Valles Marineris is the scar. Obviously and logically this is a preposterous that no sane person with any scientific education or method will consider any longer than to dismiss it.
As planetary building blocks joined together to form bigger and bigger objects in the early Solar System, some became so large and hot that they melted. This process, called differentiation, allowed heavier constituents like iron to sink to the interior.
This resulted in some objects, like Earth, forming a rocky crust and mantle around an iron-nickel core. The core is the source of our planet's magnetic field, which protects the atmosphere from being stripped away by charged particles from space.
A widely held idea is that 16 Psyche is the exposed core of an extinct world, perhaps as large as Mars. This proto-planet must have been pounded by other objects, removing the rocky outer layers and leaving just the iron-nickel innards prone to the vacuum of space.

Mercury appears to have a solid silicate crust and mantle overlying a solid, iron sulfide outer core layer, a deeper liquid core layer, and possibly a solid inner core. It is the smallest planet in the Solar System, with an equatorial radius of 2,439.7 kilometres (1,516.0 mi).
Mercury - Physical characteristics
Valles Marineris is a system of canyons that runs along the Martian surface east of the Tharsis region.At more than 4,000 km (2,500 mi) long, 200 km (120 mi) wide and up to 7 km (23,000 ft) deep, Valles Marineris is one of the largest canyons of the Solar System, surpassed in length only by the rift valleys of Earth.
Valles Marineris is located along the equator of Mars, on the east side of the Tharsis Bulge, and stretches for nearly a quarter of the planet's circumference.
It has been recently suggested that Valles Marineris is a large tectonic "crack" in the Martian crust.

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.

God King Scenario discussions
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.
- Comet Venus book discussion and topic index including Gilligan's replies
- An Ancient World In Chaos book discussion
EU theory using comparative mythology attempts to do explain and does 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. Is it an electric plasma univese?
God King Scenario books
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.
