Chapter 20: The Seven Sages Of Atlantis
During the First Time, another curious group in Egypt was founded; their legacy continued even after the deluge. This fascinating group was identified as the Followers of Horus (the seven fallen angels, the Shebtiu, the Sebetti, the seven sages, who provided illicit heavenly knowledge), who were mythological beings remembered both as the bearers and the preservers of knowledge. 6 They founded a cult of astronomer- priests that guarded the Atlantean knowledge, religion, and technology for millennia after the deluge, 7 and that cult spawned Brotherhood Orders of the Snake that continue even to this day. These curious antediluvian gods, the Sebetti/Shebtiu, not coincidentally, were recorded and described as beings with the characteristic long- headed serpentine distinction. They were known also as Urshu or watchers ; they were divine beings that acted as intermediaries between humans and the high- ranking Ntr- gods. 8 Their illustrious Snake Order of priests appears to be akin to the semidivine Order of Enoch/Oannes, who led the Anunnaki down from Mount Hermon. The designation Urshu actually translates from ancient Egyptian as watcher 9 divine beings comparable to the Shemsu- Hor, also known as the companions of Horus. 10
Similarly, Schwaller de Lubicz believed that demigods or priests were the original mentors of pharonic civilization, teaching them ancient knowledge. 11 In the same line of thought, Osiris was known as the serpent king/god, who voyaged around the world as the bringer of civilization and the founder of his mystery cult of knowledge, 12 just as Quetzalcoatl was a serpent god, the civilizer and teacher of the arts, sciences, and crafts to the Central Americans. 13 All sources from antiquity seem to speak to the same source for antediluvian civilization, which derived from the illicit knowledge of heaven and the Seven Sacred Sciences received from the infamous seven fallen angels, Azazel/ Shemyaza, Amasses, Gadereel, Baraqiel, Kokariel, Tamiel, and Asderiel, for the benefit of giants and rebellious humans.
Manetho recorded circa 250–300 B.C.E. that ancient Egypt was divided into three great eras: the reign of the gods; the followers of Horus, who migrated to Egypt from somewhere; and the dynastic reign of the pharaoh kings, which began sometime around 2950 B.C.E. , with Menes. 14
