Eye of Horus

Today I stumbled upon this picture showing a comparaison between the human brain with the pineal gland and the eye of horus symbol. So much mysteries unsolved concerning the spiritual world of every individuals. I know the Pineal Gland can be refered as the third eye in some spiritual schools. I won't elaborate on this subject because it is too irrational but I would like to have your opinions on that particular comparaison.  The following image shows the Egyptian Eye of Horus (or Eye of Ra) and how it precisely matches exact formation of the thalamus within the human brain. 

eye of horus vs brain

Yet this is viewed as nothing more than a coincidence, because in modern thinking it is assumed that the Egyptians could not have had this knowledge. Thus we are blinded to the obvious. The Eye of Horus was also broken into six basic components, each representing a different sense; smell, touch, taste, hearing, sight and thought. The thalamus is the part of the human brain which translates all incoming signals from our senses. Could the symbolism of this be any clearer?
There is a great deal of information buried within the symbolism of mythology, religion and ancient tradition. This information not only uncovers long lost ’secrets’, but also provides a key into one of the greatest mysteries; understanding ourselves. As researchers dig deeper into this amazing symbolism not only is new knowledge being found – but perhaps it is leading to the discovery of the origin of knowledge itself.

(WIKIPEDIA) The Eye of Horus is an ancient Egyptian symbol of protection, royal power and good health. The eye is personified in the goddess Wadjet (also written as Wedjat, UadjetWedjoyetEdjo or Uto and as The Eye of Ra) or "Udjat" The name Wadjet is derived from "wadj" meaning "green" hence "the green one" and was known to the Greeks and Romans as "uraeus" from the Egyptian "iaret" meaning "risen one" from the image of a cobra rising up in protection.Wadjet was one of the earliest of Egyptian deities who later became associated with other goddesses such as BastSekhmetMut, and Hathor. She was the tutelary deity of Lower Egypt and the major Delta shrine the "per-nu" was under her protection. Hathor is also depicted with this eye.Funerary amulets were often made in the shape of the Eye of Horus. The Wedjat or Eye of Horus is "the central element" of seven "goldfaience,carnelian and lapis lazuli" bracelets found on the mummy of Shoshenq II. The Wedjat "was intended to protect the king [here] in the afterlife" and to ward off evil. Ancient Egyptian and Near Eastern sailors would frequently paint the symbol on the bow of their vessel to ensure safe sea travel.


Horus was the ancient Egyptian sky god who was usually depicted as a falcon, most likely a lanner or peregrine falcon.[12] His right eye was associated with the sun Ra. The eye symbol represents the marking around the eye of the falcon, including the "teardrop" marking sometimes found below the eye. The mirror image, or left eye, sometimes represented the moon and the god Djehuti (Thoth).[13]

In one myth, when Set and Horus were fighting for the throne after Osiris's death, Set gouged out Horus' left eye. The eye was restored by either Hathor or Thoth

Amazing similarity. This has to be more than a coincidence. However, I am curious, in what way you mean that the 3rd eye and writings regarding it are "too irrational"?

Loordy said...

Actually...It is not too irrational for me but maybe for the masses. I know a few chapter on the subject and the reason I posted such thing is because I am interested in a way. Just didnt want to scare people :) I could have elaborate a bit more I agree.

Exact? You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

Uncanny, yes. Exact? Precise? No.

The egyptians thought that the brains sole function was to make phlegm or mucus, and was one of the few organs which the ancient egypts discarded after mummification. My point? If they had made the eye of ra(one of their most beloved symbol)they wouldn't have discarded the organ in which they based the symbol upon. So yes, this is a coincidence.

UNLESS the egyptians didnt know the symbol accually represented your brain, and simply went with their gut feeling on the deisgn. As you might know the Eye of Horus can be broken down to 6 senses (including thought) represented with 6 fractions of which do not add up to one. I think this highlights the fact we will never know everything about our brain and supports this idea linking the human brain and Eye of Horus. And in my personal opinion tells you your brain can not be broken down into exact parts to help understand exact functions your brain does. There is things your brain can do that have no known location of orgin even if we do explore every single cell in our brain. This of which is not facts I have read or anything, just my thoughts on the subject. thanks for reading

This is a comment at the guy who said;

Please really do your research before you make contradictory claims. While on the surface it may seem like you have this problem debunked you really do not.

We have a little think in our conscious reality called time. Keep that in mind.

What dynasty did Egyptians start removing the brain? 18th Dynasty... That is pretty late in Egyptian history my brother. This symbol created much sooner by quite a number of years.

Is this important? Very much so. Look at the Great Pyramid of Giza / Khufu / whatever you want to call it. AThen look at the pyramids after. They are all very precise, astronomical and even acoustically sound in design. (I can talk in great detail about this but wont bore you with my very new and extreme beliefs on alot of this)

So what we have is their later designs are not as amazingly designed as their earlier designs. You actually see a period of regression in whats going on. Almost like they were trying to copy the earlier concepts but not quite as well.

What was the likely scenario of this? Well you had your elite group of priests who probably did a lot of this amazing stuff. They either eventually died out or (most likely) killed by their own people. Traditions change and die just like they did in all recorded history - they are no different.

So there is my brief look at your debunk, I think this still deserves more attention.

I agree with you, there is more behind that! And the Egyptians knew more than we probably do today.Research shows that Egypt was not a beginning, but what we know is already the downfall of it, but not the "blooming" of the culture. Why is it that our history ends about 6000 years ago? There is much more... you might want to look into the book "Catastrophobia" from Barbara Hand Clow. And there is much more...

Graham Burgess said...

Thank you for that amazing piece. I do believe that much of the ancient symbolism was based on facts. Christ reigned for 33 years as did Hours and many others. There are 33 degrees of freemasonry and I think that apart from the cyclic number of the sun being honoured it tunes into something else that is hidden, strong and flexible and supports you for your useful life (reign) your spine.
Everything you hear, see, smell, eat and breathe enters a protective box, your skull. It has 22 pieces and two heads are better than one so what about the symbolic use of 44 ?

Hey came across an article that goes in depth about the meaning of the Eye of Horus and the Brain. It even ties it to black holes and the bible. some real interesting stuff!! check it out.

No one knows much more of this....... than anyone can see. One can See.

The pineal gland deals with the reception of light, that's why it's active during periods of darkness, releasing melatonin. Light through the eyes affects the gland, and it is inactive when the light is present. When melatonin is released it allows for sleep. Meditating in the darkness can release melatonin during the daylight hours and this can lead to a clarity of mind.

ummm,.. am I going to have to be that person... I think this whole thing is a bit of a stretch... I mean remove all the god forsaken arrows all over the image and they look almost nothing alike... besides the CC, which is even still isn't even that well represented in the eye, all the other apsect of the brain are wayy to stretched and distorted. I mean it KINDA looks similar but only because you're really forcing them too.....

"The Egyptians could not have had this knowledge"

Thousands of years, and the Egyptians never sliced open a brain?

Becca Murray said...

It may benefit you to do a little more research before blogging. Egyptians were the first culture to unlock the mysteries of the human body (i.e. human dissection). While every culture wishes to be the first to venture into the unknown and claim the renown and thus the rewards that follow, Egyptians knew more than they are given credit for in the medical world. They also were predecessors in baking and brewing, mathematics and architecture.
