The Sidelock of Silence and Mysteries of Immaturity

Aria Nasi Research Home Page

In this blog, we will explore the history of the infamous, Sidelock of Youth and it’s association with the Israelites. We will discover that the Sidelock of Youth was a marker of Egyptian aristocracy and priesthood. As a result, it was connected with the Egyptian mystery religion that was introduced into other countries through ancient Israelite migrations and trade. Moreover, we will discover that the Sidelock of Egypt was particularly connected with the tribe of Dan, amongst other Israelite tribes, as well as the Phoenicians (who were also a branch of Israelites). We will particularly focus on the Israelites leaving from Egypt to Greece and then parallel that experience and the diffusion of pagan Egyptian culture with the Israelite presence in ancient India.

Let’s first define what the Sidelock of Youth is.

Here, again, is a sketch from Abydos, in which the king, although he has not yet ceased to wear the side-lock of youth, is seen with a boyish beard

The sidelock of youth (also called a Horus lock, Prince’s lock, Princess’ lock, or side braid) was an identifying characteristic of the child in Ancient Egypt. It symbolically indicates that the wearer is a legitimate heir of Osiris… Based on the connection between sidelocks and children, Egyptologists coined the term “sidelock of youth”. They are worn by both mortal and divine children… The sidelock of youth was used by the children of the Pharaohs, not only to show them to be children, but also to indicate their connection to the youthful Horus. Like them, the young Horus had worn the sidelock as the heir apparent of his father Osiris. In accordance with the mythological precedent, the children of the king, as his designated heirs, received the Horus lock, as an indicatation of the special duties that were bound up with that status.” – Sidelock of Youth, Wikipedia

According to the definition, the Sidelock is indicative of Horus and therefore those who wore the sidelock (both men and women/unisex hairstyle) were attempting to become incarnations of Horus; the legitimate heir of Osiris.

In parallel, the earthly heirs of the power of Osiris also wore the Horus lock as an indication of the special duties that were bound up with that status. Those special duties bound up with the princes of Osiris/the Pharaoh are together known as the ‘mysteries’.

And now as to the Watchers who have sent thee to intercede for them, who had been [aforetime] in heaven, (say to them): “You have been in heaven, but [all] the mysteries had not yet been revealed to you, and you knew worthless ones, and these in the hardness of your hearts you have made known to the women, and through these mysteries women and men work much evil on earth.”” – Enoch 16:2-3

mystery 2

The term mystery is associated with the word “mystic” and it was the Israelites who brought Egyptian mysticism to India and China. These Egyptian mysteries developed into Hinduism and Buddhism, as well as Dravidian Aryuvedic herbal knowledge. We see evidence of the influence of the Israelites in India and China through the sidelock and sacred hair traditions of both India and China.

Moses, being raised as a prince amongst the Egyptians was also familiar with ALL the mysteries of Egypt.

It was common for the high priest to also hold the title of sem priest of Ptah. The sem priest could be recognized by the fact that he wore a short wig with a side-lock and was dressed in a leopard/panther skin.

The Leopard Society/Ekpe and other secret societies of West Africa are also derived from the mysteries of the ancient Egyptian Sem priest of Ptah. These secret societies are the African version of Freemasonty. The secret writing and symbols, in which they communicate (ie. Nsibidi), function similar to Egyptian hieroglyphics; they are images that represent ideas and hidden information.

“And the child grew, and she brought him unto Pharaoh’s daughter, and he became her son. And she called his name Moses: and she said, Because I drew him out of the water.” – Exodus 2:10

“And when he was cast out, Pharaoh’s daughter took him up, and nourished him for her own son.” – Acts 7:21

“And Moses was learned in all the wisdom of the Egyptians, and was mighty in words and in deeds.” – Acts 7:22

However, we cannot attribute all the wisdom the Israelites had to what they learned while in Egypt because they were already instructed in ALL wisdom by Jacob before they entered into Egypt. This was revealed when Joseph spoke with Benjamin in Egypt and Benjamin demonstrated his ability to read the signs in the stars of heaven (like Global Posistioning Satellites) to locate a person.

“And he ordered them to bring before him his map of the stars, whereby Joseph knew all the times, and Joseph said unto Benjamin, I have heard that the Hebrews are acquainted with all wisdom, dost thou know anything of this? And Benjamin said, Thy servant is knowing also in all the wisdom which my father taught me, and Joseph said unto Benjamin, Look now at this instrument and understand where thy brother Joseph is in Egypt, who you said went down to Egypt. And Benjamin beheld that instrument with the map of the stars of heaven, and he was wise and looked therein to know where his brother was, and Benjamin divided the whole land of Egypt into four divisions, and he found that he who was sitting upon the throne before him was his brother Joseph, and Benjamin wondered greatly, and when Joseph saw that his brother Benjamin was so much astonished, he said unto Benjamin, What hast thou seen, and why art thou astonished?” – Jasher 53:18-20

The Israelites clearly already possessed greater knowledge that the Egyptians upon the entrance into the land. It is by this wisdom taught to the Israelites by their father Jacob and the guidance of the Most High that Joseph was able to gain favor of Pharoah. The Israelites seemed to have introduced wisdom into all the lands the wandered into. We must also note that the Egyptian priests who battled against Moses were also very skilled in the mysteries as well. They were able to imitate, although to a far lesser degree, the miracles performed by Moses and so it should be understood that the ancient wisdom of the Egyptian priesthood was indeed powerful.

Beyond Moses and the Priesthood of Egypt, it is certain that many other members of the ruling class of Egypt were also well acquainted with the ancient wisdom of Egypt. Many of them wore the side lock of youth as markers of their social status. Social status is often associated with education and literacy; especially in the ancient world. Horus, who is depicted wearing the side lock of youth, is also shown with the finger over his mouth in reference to him guarding the mystical and secret knowledge of the priesthood/ruling class.

The old maxim, ‘A child should be seen but not heard’ applies to this image of the ever-youthful form of Horus, known to the Greeks as Harpokrates. Children are supposed to ‘watch their’ mouth’ and keep silent to stop others from hearing wisdom. It is well known that children can become aware of many things and often repeat what they’ve heard; kids say the darndest things.

For by speech wisdom shall be known: and learning by the word of the tongue.” – Sirach 4:24

“So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” – Romans 10:17

Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.” – Proverbs 4:7

“For wisdom is a defence…” – Ecclesiastes 7:12

For there shall not be found many wise at that time, And the intelligent shall be but a few: Moreover, even those who know shall most of all be silent.” – 2 Baruch 48:33

In Greek mythology, Harpocrates is the god of silence. Harpocrates was adapted by the Greeks from the Egyptian child god Horus. To the ancient Egyptians, Horus represented the new-born Sun, rising each day at dawn.

The female version of Harpokrates is called Angerona by the Romans.

In art, she was depicted with a bandaged mouth and a finger pressed to her lips, demanding silence. Dumézil considers this peculiar feature of Angerona’s statue to hint to a prerogative of the goddess which was well known to the Romans, i.e. her will of requesting silence. He remarks silence in a time of cosmic crisis is a well documented point in other religions, giving two instances from Scandinavian and Vedic religion.” – Angerona, Wikipedia

The association between Angerona and Volupia would thence be explained as the pleasure that derives from a fulfilled desire, the achievement of an objective… Thence the definition of θεός της βουλης και καιρων “goddess of advice and of favourable occasions” given in a Latin-Greek glossary” – Angerona, Wikipedia

In the old Greek days, when they ruled Egypt, after the Ptolemaists moved in one of Alexander’s generals and became the pharaoh, and whole lineages of the Ptolemaists came out of them, right down to Cleopatra and her son. They called the figure of the young Horus (with the short legs): Baby Horus. You walk careful like a baby, but you think like a man, with his finger in front of his lips, surrounded by the wings of the big hawk, behind him. The meaning of that was: Harpocrates. Harpocrates is what they called the young Osiris in that position—secrecy. The thing that the lips signified: shhh, which we still use—the old mystery religion. That’s the kind of characters that Harpo Productions gives you to emulate on television.” – Alan Watt Blurb, “Sentient Asylum for a Depraved New World” June 27, 2007

This is known as the sign of silence in the freemasonic traditions. It is symbolic of secret knowledge that should not be spoken of. By keeping silent, one prevents others from hearing wisdom, because wisdom is known by hearing and heard by the word of speech.

For wisdom is a defence, and money is a defence: but the excellency of knowledge is, that wisdom giveth life to them that have it.” – Ecclesiastes 7:12

“My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge…” – Hosea 4:6

This secret knowledge is known as “the mysteries” and is currently taught to individual through the “mystery schools” and various freemasonic organizations.

invisible college The Royal Society invisible college mason secret society

These mystery schools also existed in ancient times and was shared with few people in order to rule the majority through occult wisdom. Technological information was also concealed within the mysterious knowledge. These technologies were based on metaphysics and focused on conquering natural elements, with the ultimate goal of communing with the spiritual world. The goal was to bring the celestial kingdom into the terrestrial realm to use infinite energies to enforce their will.

“Ethiopia  and Egypt were her strength, and it was infiniteH369 H7097 Put and Lubim were thy helpers.” – Nahum 3:9

The Most High freed the Israelites from the land of Egypt and it’s infinite power with a mighty hand. This was no small power that the Most High defeated on behalf of the Israelites by loosing them from the hard bondage of Egypt. However, before and during the Exodus, many of the members of the Egyptian priesthood we Israelites, chiefly of the tribe of Dan, who continued in the ways of Egypt rather than following the Most High through the leadership of Moses.

“As a dog returneth to his vomit, so a fool returneth to his folly.” – Proverbs 26:11

“For my people is foolish, they have not known me; they are sottish children, and they have none understanding: they are wise to do evil, but to do good they have no knowledge.” – Jeremiah 4:22

Just like the Israelites that worshipped the Golden Bull of Egypt after they left Egypt, the Israelites who migrated to other lands, also continued in the religion of Egypt. The following quote provides support for the vast historical evidence that proves that the Egyptian religion was introduced to Greece by the Egyptian Danite/Israelite colonizers:

Danites and other Israelites arriving by Sea in the land of Kittim and trading with original Japhetic inhabitants of the of Greece—the people of Javan (Judges 5:17, Ezekiel 27:19).

“The first Jews who settled in Rome were expelled in 139 BCE, along with Chaldaean astrologers by Cornelius Hispalus under a law which proscribed the propagation of the “corrupting” cult of “Jupiter Sabazius,” according to the epitome of a lost book of Valerius Maximus:

Gnaeus Cornelius Hispalus, praetor peregrinus in the year of the consulate of Marcus Popilius Laenas and Lucius Calpurnius, ordered the astrologers by an edict to leave Rome and Italy within ten days, since by a fallacious interpretation of the stars they perturbed fickle and silly minds, thereby making profit out of their lies. The same praetor compelled the Jews, who attempted to infect the Roman custom with the cult of Jupiter Sabazius, to return to their homes.”

Danaus introduced the Wolf worship of Egypt to the Greeks. The Wolf was worshipped as the god of war and death. It was also associated with Ra (Osiris) which is the hebrew word for ‘evil/wickedness/mischief’ (H7489). This same wolf worship was also introduced to the Romans.

Again, this quote makes it clear that the Danites and Israelites who fled from Hyksos Egypt to escape the slavery forced upon the Israelite came to Egypt and introduced religion to them. Before the new Egyptian regime, who did not know Joseph (Exodus 1:8, Acts 7:18-19), many of the Danites and Israelites fled Egypt to Greece. During the Exodus under the leadership of Moses when the Israelites were making the Golden Calf, the same Egyptian worship was being introduced to Greece by the Hyksos Egypto-Israelite travellers.

Bull-leaping (also taurokathapsia, from Greek ταυροκαθάψια) is a motif of Middle Bronze Age figurative art, notably of Minoan Crete, but also found in Hittite Anatolia, the Levant, Bactria and the Indus Valley. It is often interpreted as a depiction of a ritual performed in connection with bull worship. This ritual consists of an acrobatic leap over a bull” – Bull Leaping, Wikipedia

Bull-leaping is still practiced in the south west of France, where it is traditionally known as the course landaise (although young cows are used instead of bulls).

The hero gods of Greece were all once represented by animals, which were symbolic of celestial constellations. These constellations were based on the Egyptian cosmology that was introduced to Greece by Danaus the Danite.

“And I Solomon, seeing them, questioned them and said: “Who are ye?” But they, with one accord, said with one voice: “We are of the thirty-[six] elements of the cosmic ruler of the darkness.”… “And I commanded another demon to come before me. And there came before my face thirty-six spirits, their heads shapeless like dogs, but in themselves they were human in form; with faces of asses, faces of oxen, and faces of birds. And I Solomon, on hearing and seeing them, wondered, and I asked them and said: “Who are you?” But they, of one accord with one voice, said: “We are the thirty-six elements, the world-rulers of this darkness. But, O King Solomon, thou wilt not wrong us nor imprison us, nor lay command on us; but since the Lord God has given thee authority over every spirit, in the air, and on the earth, and under the earth, therefore do we also present ourselves before thee like the other spirits, from ram and bull, from both twin and crab, lion and virgin, scales and scorpion, archer, goat-horned, water-pourer, and fish.”” –Testament of Solomon 1:72-73

“Danaus, a son of Belus and Anchinoe, who, after his father’s death, reigned conjointly with his brother AEgyptus on the throne of Egypt. Some time after, Danaus set sail with his fifty daughters in quest of a settlement. He visited Rhodes, where he consecrated a statue to Minerva, and arrived safe on the coast of Peloponnesus, where he was hospitably received by Gelandor, king of Argos… The ship in which Danaus came to Greece, was called Armais, and was the first that had ever appeared there.” – Bibliotheca Classica; Or, A Classical Dictionary, By John Lemprière, PG 234

Danaan Greeks from Egypt expelled another group of Danites, the Heraclidae (sons of Heracles/Hercules/Samson the Danite), from the Peloponnesus, who then went Dor Israel to get their cousins, Danite Israelites/Phoenicians, to return back to conquer the Peloponnesus as the Dorian Greeks.

The Danites and Israelites during the Hyksos period were obviously great sailors. In times after the Exodus, after the Israelites had established themselves in the land of Canaan, the Danites and some of the northern tribes of Israel joined together in Tyre to form the Phoenicians. That fact will be briefly discussed later in this blog, as well as in further detail in a separate blog HERE. The advanced sailing skills of these Israelites during the Hyksos Egyptian period, as well as under their latter eponym of the Phœnicians, allowed the Israelites to travel to other lands. In all the lands they travelled too, they introduced this same Egyptian religion and occult knowledge. The aristocracy and priesthood of Egypt not only arrived in Greece, but they also arrived in India, introducing the same Egyptian culture.

israelite migrants to india

The sidelock was introduced to ancient India by the Israelite migrants from Egypt and was known as the Shikha or Mun-Kudumi.

kudumi 1

The sikha or shikha is a long tuft, or lock of hair left on top or on the back of the shaven head of a male Orthodox Hindu. Though traditionally all Hindus were required to wear a śikhā, today it is seen mainly among Brahmachari, ‘celibate monks’ and temple priests

kudumi 2 Traditionally, Hindu men shave off all their hair as a child in a sanskāra or ritual known as the chudakarama. A lock of hair is left at the crown (sahasrara). Unlike most other eastern cultures (including ancient Egypt) where a coming-of-age ceremony removed childhood locks of hair similar to the śikhā (e.g. a forelock or pigtails in China, a topknot in Thailand, a sidelock in Egypt etc.) in India this prepubescent hairstyle is left to grow throughout the man’s life, though usually only the most orthodox religious men will continue this hairstyle.” Sikh, Wikipedia

sikha 1

Kudumi means mountain top, and also churki in Tamil. Sangam Tamil poems show warriors wearing kuDumi. Could this be a custom adapted by Brahmins from Dravidians and later on, came to be associated with Brahmanical culture? Wearing kudumi is a very ancient custom. At least two figurines from Harappa are seen to be sporting kudumi… The kudumi is usually tied into a knot. It may be allowed to hang down… according to its position, it is known as either “munkudumi”-front knot; “pakkak kudumi”-side lock; “pin kudumi'”-back knot; “uchchik kudumi”-top knot. The side knot was kept by the warriors. We can see the figures of RajaRaja Chola, Sundara Pandiya, and Tirumalai Naayak adorning side kudumies. The “mun kudumi” was kept by certain sects of Brahmins. The Choliya Brahmins were among the wearers. Now, the Namboodris have it. There were some factors attached to the kudumi. During a combat, if the kudumi of one of the combatants were to come loose, the fight had to be stopped. A respite was given, during which the opponent could tie back his kudumi. Only after that, could the contest proceed. Even if the combatant had all the tactical advantages of the fight, he could not kill an opponent with unravelled hair. A victory thus attained was a very ignoble act and was an unchivalrous act, condemned by all.” –

Just like the sidelock of youth from Egypt, the Indian sidelock was also associated with occult knowledge and religious ritual.

A Dikhshitar Brahman

Dikshit or Dikshitar (Hindi: दीक्षित) is a Hindu family name. The word is an adjective form of the Sanskrit word diksha, meaning provider of knowledge. Dikshit in Sanskrit derives itself as a person involved in scientific studies, and literally translates as “one who has received initiation or one who is initiated”. The surname is usually associated with people from the Brahmin community among Hindus in India… The Dikshit surname suggests that somebody in the family lineage, perhaps several generations ago, must have had some form of formal initiation into some religious tradition or studious body of knowledge. Historically, Dixits have been usually associated with professions related to knowledge, teachers and scholars” – Dikshit, Wikipedia

It is an established rule that ANYONE WHO RECITES VEDIC MANTHRAS SHOULD NOT HAVE HAIR ON FACE AND HEAD. So, those who need to perform vedic rituals are advised to remove hairs… Shikha is also like a spiritual antenna on the top of the head … A person who keeps SHIKHA attracts cosmic energy which imparts enlightment… One must have a sikha to perform any kind of yajna. Therefore in Indian tradition all the brahmanas, Vaisnava or otherwise, keep a sikha.” – Why a Devotee has a Shikha

The Chinese also had a hair tradition almost identical to that found in India. During the early 17th century AD, Nurhaci of Manchuria forcibly introduced the Manchu Hairstyle to China’s Qing Dynasty. The shikha/pin-kudumi (back-lock) hairstyle of India is very similar to the Manchurian queue/cue hairstyle.

The queue is a hairstyle in which the hair is worn long and gathered up into a ponytail. The Chinese queue was a specific hairstyle worn by the Manchus from central Manchuria and later imposed on the Chinese in China. The hairstyle consisted of the hair on the front of the head being shaved off above the temples and the rest of the hair braided into a long ponytail, or queue. The ponytail was never to be cut for it would justify execution as treason… Traditionally, adult Han Chinese did not cut their hair. According to the Classic of Filial Piety, Confucius said: “We are given our body, skin and hair from our parents; which we ought not to damage. This idea is the quintessential of filial duty.

As a result of this ideology both men and women wound their hair into a bundle or into various hairstyles. Manchu men, on the other hand, shaved their foreheads, leaving a long rattail called the queue.” – Cultural China

These various traditions that venerate long unshorn hair can be found in different cultures all around the world. Ironically, all of these traditions somehow seem to originate with the Danite Samson’s long hair tradition.

“Underlying many belief systems is the idea that hair has inherent power. In the Old Testament story about Samson and Deliah, Samson is heroic and powerful as long as he has his hair. He loses that power when Delilah tricks him and cuts it off. In the fairy tale of Rapunzel, the heroine gains power by lowering her long healthy tresses so that her suitor can climb up and rescue her from the tower where she was imprisoned. Native Americans thought that enemies could make use of their hair if they got hold of it, so they burned stray or combed-out hairs. In some cultures, hair itself is sacred. Ancient Buddhist teachings held that hair was a gift from one’s ancestors and should be cherished like other body parts. The Sikhs, a religious denomination in Asia, regard hair as sacred. Devout Sikhs are expected to leave their hair uncut throughout their lifetimes.” – Encyclopedia of Hair: A Cultural History, edited by Victoria Sherrow, xxiv Introduction

Interestingly, many Bantu African Israelites share the same hair customs that we have found in Egypt, India and China. The Himba men of Southern Angola and Northern Namibia were a traditional hairstyle that is very similar in appearance to the “pin-kudumi” back-knot of the Harappa Indus Valley civilization of India and the Chinese Manchu Queue hairstyle.

The Amerindian’s of North, Central, South America and the Caribbean, who are also Israelites that traded with the Phoenician branch of Israelites from Africa, also had some tribes that wore a sidelock and back knot style very reminiscent of all the afore mentioned styles derived from the Egyptian sidelock of the youthful god Horus.

The final destination of this blog in tracing the diffusion of the sidelock of youth/Horus and mysterious wisdom connected to it is in Japan. Japan’s god Fudo Myo-o is also known to possess great wisdom and he also wears the sidelock. He originated in India with the Sanskrit name, Acala, and was brought to Japan by the Buddhist Monk Kukai.

His [Fudo Myoo’s] hair is long, one great lock falls from the left side of his head.” – Asiatic Mythology: A Detailed Description and Explanation of the Mythologies of all the Great Nations of Asia, edited by J. Hackin, PG 425

“The images of Fudo-Myo-o, Bright King, can be recognized by the long lock of hair hanging down one cheek, which is the mark of A SLAVE. In India His images are those of the low out-caste pariah, who subsists on the food left by others… This side-lock of hair is a distinctive mark of the B’nei Israel in India, and of Jews in Moscow, Prague, etc. It is also significant that Fudo has one eye open and the other half shut…” – The Lotus Gospel, PG 142 (165)

Although we have identified the side-lock as an indicator of high social status and occult wisdom, this particular quote associates the side-lock slaves; specially Israelites/Jews. This information is significant because it further supports the previous information we have already discovered concerning the Israelites migration from ancient Egypt into foreign lands, although it may at first seem to the contrary. The slave status of the low out-cast pariah in India is held by those known as the Dalit, traditionally regarded as the ‘Untouchables’ in the Indian caste system.

The Dalits are described as a mixed population consisting of groups across South Asia. They are also characterized by their dark skin and their Negroid and Mongoloid phenotypical features that are also typically found in South Asia. This is because many of them are the descendants of the ancient Indus Valley Dravidians who arrived from ancient Egypt (as Israelites) and civilized South India and Asia. The Dalits are also comprised of later migrations of Israelite peoples (Phoenicians, Zanji-Bantus & Aryan-Scythians) who fell from rulership to servant class as foreign nations conquered and opposed their own policies. It is for this reason that the side-lock, previously identified with ancient royalty and priesthood, is also associated with servant status of Fudo-Myo-o of Japan and the B’nei Israel (Children of Israel) in India.

Kerala was a major spice exporter from as early as 3000 BCE, according to Sumerian records. Its fame as the land of spices attracted ancient Babylonians, Assyrians and Egyptians to the Malabar Coast in the 3rd and 2nd millennia BCE. Arabs and Phoenicians were also successful in establishing their prominence in the Kerala trade during this early period.” – Kerala, Wikipedia

The side-lock of royalty also appears in modern popular culture in the video game Zelda. The character wearing the sidelock, Impa, is described as ‘an agent of the goddess.’ She is an avatar much like Fudo Myoo and the Pharoahs of Egypt were agents/avatars of Osiris. Another example can be seen in the Pope as the Vicar of the of the Anti Christ.

It would appear that Egyptian royalty, in the form of the Hyksos Danite/Israelites, establishing Egyptian colonies in the Indian Ocean, were the founders of the Hindu/Buddhist religion and culture that developed in India and Southeast Asia. They imported the Egyptian mysteries and became worshipped as gods by the indigenous Japhetic people. Fudo Myoo is wearing the sidelock of youth worn by Egyptian children and adult royalty/priesthood. If Fudo Myo was a descendant of Egyptian royalty it would not be a surprise if he was well learned in the mysteries of Egypt.

I believe it was a royal privilege to become skilled in the wisdom of Egypt, which included metaphysical sciences, sacred geometry, astrology and other esoteric knowledge. It is a fact that Egypt had colonies all over the Mediterranean and so it would not be unreasonable that they also travel through the Suez Canal, following what would eventually become the Silk route by Sea, which lead them into the Indian Ocean and South East Asia.

When we look to India and South East Asia, we can definitely find evidence of the Egyptian presence. Not just the religion and cultural customs of people in those areas but also the architecture. The temples or stupas are built like steppe pyramids and serve the same function as the Pyramids of Egypt. They are astrologically aligned like the pyramids of Egypt with an East to West orientation. This is to align themselves with the rising and setting sun to receive the blessing of the Sun. This travelled to the far east, namely China, as feng shui and ancient homes can be found in china also aligned with the sun to receive Solar Gain. This philosophy and practice of Sun worship is definitely Egyptian in origin and is also linked to the Egyptian idea of utilizing the Earths infinite energy by building structures that are fractally scaled to correlate with the Earth’s and other creation’s dimension (ie. The Giza “Powerplant” Pyramid). This is all based on sacred geometry which is based off of the golden mean; Phi (CLICK HERE TO READ MORE). This idea and mathematical/astrological approach to construction was introduced and practiced by the Egypto-Israelites into India where it became known as Vastu Shastra.

[Vast Shatra] Means science of architecture and construction. Found in Indian subcontinent, these survive as manuals on design, layout, measurements, ground preparation, space arrangement, spatial geometry and other aspects of architecture. Vastu sastras incorporate traditional Hindu and in some cases Buddhist beliefs. The designs are based on integrating architecture with nature and ancient Indian beliefs utilizing perfect geometric patterns (yantra), symmetry and directional alignments.

Ancient Vastu Sastras discuss design of Mandir (temples),and include chapters on the principles, design and layout of houses, towns, cities, gardens, roads, water works, shops and other public necessities.While most Vastu shastras describe rules of construction and architecture, a few include chapters on astrology and rituals recommended for buildings. They are also referred to as Vastu veda, Vastu vidya, Thachu shastra, Thatchu shasthra.” – Vastu Shastra, Wikipedia

This science and skill of engineering came to India byway of the Egyptian colonist in India who became known as Dravidians. The ancient knowledge of the Dravidians was highly advanced and they also employed the same metaphysical and engineering mindset in their system of healthcare. They believed that the body was a temple and treated it as such. Temples were treated as personifications or actual bodies of dieties and human bodies were treated like temples of the earth. The Egyptian idea of aligning monuments/temple buildings with the earths natural channels of energy flow is reflected in the eastern healthcare philosophy about the paths of life energy (known as qi or chi in the far east) that flow through different channels in the body. In India, this life energy or qi/ki/chi is also known as prana. Much of the Hindu and Buddhist traditions practice the manipulation of energy in the human body or in other physical objects through specific practices dealing with aligning objects in the path of a desired energy pattern.

For example, ancient Egyptians believed that if one was able to make a copy of the Duat (a certain area of the night sky revered as the underworld) upon the earth by perfectly building structures in fractally equivalent dimensions and distance from their celestial counterparts then the terrestrial replica would then receive protection and power from the celestial diety presiding over the celestial object they traced upon earth. The ancient people of Indian and South East Asian received this information/technology from the Egyptian colonist. These mysteries are still preserved through Hinduism and Buddhism today.

In conclusion, it should be easier to see the connection between the sidelock and the occult wisdom it is associated with it. This occult wisdom was used for to manipulate energies in order to affect change in accordance with their own selfish will. This is the definition of ‘Magick’ and the wisdom that promotes it is in direct opposition to the wisdom of the Most High (James 3:15). This occult body of knowledge is also associated with the unfaithful Israelites that maintain the culture of Egypt and diffused its mystery religion into all the places they migrated to. The sidelock of youth is a marker of one who is an heir to Osiris and initiated into the mysterious occult body of knowledge of ancient Egypt, Babylon and the antediluvian (pre-flood) world. This sidelock of youth is also associated with the vow/code of silence. Occult wisdom should be kept hidden, in the belief of some, so that others cannot defend against the private plans and ambitions of practitioners of magick. This practice of magick and occult knowledge of manipulating energy was used in ancient and modern times to govern people through psychology, architecture and social engineering, among many other arts.

These arts body of knowledge preserved by the wearers of the sidelock of ancient Egypt as well as the Phoenicians of Syria/Lebanon, both with large groups of Israelites among them, who migrated to foreign lands, for different reasons, and introduced advanced civilizations to the people they encountered based on these occult wisdom traditions they had inherited. Therefore, it was the Israelites who taught the gentiles advanced forms of pagan worship, and shared with them, in ancient times, the information and occult wisdom that would later be used to enslave the descendants of the Israelites in the latter times (Jeremiah 4:22, Jeremiah 2:33). The sidelock of youth is a mark of immaturity and bondage to a lesser god or government. One’s allegiance should be to the Most High God and his Word alone (1 Corinth 6:20, 1 Corinth 7:23, Deut 32:9). The Israelites had their time in Egypt during their youth but as and old lion, what will rouse these Israelite up? Not the occult secret wisdom but Word of the Most High God; the way, the truth and the life! It is time to cut off the things of childhood youth and come to maturity so that we might be able to determine good from evil and put on the whole spiritual armor to war for the righteous army that the Most High and Christ have called you to be a soldier in (2 Timothy 2:3-4).

“When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.” – 1 Corinthians 13:11

“Brethren, be not children in understanding: howbeit in malice be ye children, but in understanding be men.” – 1 Corinthians 14:20

“And I, brethren, could not speak unto you as unto spiritual, but as unto carnal, even as unto babes in Christ. I have fed you with milk, and not with meat: for hitherto ye were not able to bear it, neither yet now are ye able. For ye are yet carnal: for whereas there is among you envying, and strife, and divisions, are ye not carnal, and walk as men?” – 1 Corinthians 3:1-3

“For every one that useth milk is unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe. But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.” – Hebrews 5:13-14


Cut off the sidelock, cut off the Yoga and eastern mysticism, cut of the wisdom of the world and seek the true wisdom of the Most High God found in the Holy Bible and the text of the Hebrew Israelites (Sirach 24:1-12, Matthew 5:14-16).

  1. I was curious if you ever thought of changing the structure of your blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two images. Maybe you could space it out better?


  2. I would like to thnkx for the efforts you have put in writing this blog. I am hoping the same high-grade site post from you in the upcoming also. In fact your creative writing abilities has inspired me to get my own site now. Actually the blogging is spreading its wings fast. Your write up is a good example of it.
