Re: X Marks the Spot
Just to announce that I'm in negotiations with a narrator (who has done work with National Geographic, etc) to do the voice-overs. So far, he's shown considerable interest.

Latest trailer is here:


I suspect it will eventually air on television, as EDGE MEDIA have shown some interest in showing it when it finally gets finished.

Re: X Marks the Spot
Ancient Greek Color Vision

As seen through the eyes of the Ancient Greeks, color perception is a very different thing than our own color perception. Why is this, what is it about our eyes and brains that causes this difference of visual perception from person to person and culture to culture?

In his writings Homer surprises us by his use of color. His color descriptive palate was limited to metallic colors, black, white, yellowish green and purplish red, and those colors he often used oddly, leaving us with some questions as to his actual ability to see colors properly . He calls the sky "bronze" and the sea and sheep as the color of wine, he applies the adjective chloros (meaning green with our understanding) to honey, and a nightingale . Chloros is not the only color that Homer uses in this unusual way. He also uses kyanos oddly, "Hector was dragged, his kyanos hair was falling about him" . Here it would seem, to our understanding, that Hector's hair was blue as we associate the term kyanos with the semi-precious stone lapis lazuli, in our thinking kyanos means cyan . But we cannot assume that Hector's hair was blue, rather, in light of the way that Homer consistently uses color adjectives, we must think about his meaning, did he indeed see honey as green, did he not see the ocean as blue, how does his perception of color reflect on himself, his people, and his world..................
 Quoting: observation

[link to serendip.brynmawr.edu]

This correlation between Homer and other Ancient Greeks on the subject of color vision suggests some questions about Ancient Greek color vision leading to ideas inquiring into the ability of the Ancient Greek eye to perceive color at all. It is possible, in light of evolutionary theory, that the retina of the Ancient Greek was not evolved to the point of full color perception.

The whole idea of colour was entirely different in Ancient Greece, Homer for instance write that the sky was a Bronze colour and that sheep were the colour of wine.

The Greeks when they went to war, didn't fight under a flag. That notion didn't arise until the Romans who were excellent vexologists.
Although it has been suggested that Alexander the Great may have used Blue and White to mark his troops, the idea is unfounded in actual archaeology and appears to be a modern reconstruction of history post 1821. [link to answers.yahoo.com]

Bringing the Color Back to Ancient Greece

We have inherited an image of her as an idealized nude chiseled in white marble, immortalized by works such as Praxiteles’ Aphrodite of Knidos or the Venus de Milo.

That image is dead wrong, according to modern scholars. Ancient sculptors were very much interested in color as well as form; the white marble statues we admire looked stunningly different in antiquity. They were painted with a palette that displayed a sophisticated understanding of color and shading.

Re: X Marks the Spot
Green Sun Over Egypt

The standard interpretations of Egyptian pyramid texts date from the late 1800's. Nobody at that time had considered even the possibility of a different solar-system order having pertained just 6000 years ago; quite naturally, all explanations given were in terms of present reality, even though the fit could be seen to be a forced one.

A careful reading of these tales leaves no one in doubt that strangeness is being described. Osiris is often described as a "night sun" or "sun of night".

The reference to Osiris as the "night sun" is fairly common. From Ignatius Donelly's "The destruction of Atlantis / Ragnarok, the Age of Fire and Gravel, page 234:

"M. Mariette-Bay says: 'Originally, Osiris is the nocturnal sun; he is the primordial night of chaos; he is consequently anterior to Ra, the sun of day". Mr. Miller says: 'As nocturnal sun, Osiris was also regarded as a type of the sun BEFORE ITS FIRST RISING, or of the primordial night of chaos...'"

which is a bit closer to the kind of thing David Talbott is talking about.

There is a great deal more of the unusual in the character of Osiris; the pyramid texts insist on claiming that the sun they called Osiris was GREEN! Actually, what you will notice looking at the shenbond jewel at the top of this page or at the representations of the Saturn system alignment depicted on the Kronia WWW site, is that humans formerly observed at least three other bodies in a stacked alignment above us, and that one of those (Venus) was blue-green, and hence the light which the entire apparition radiated might well have been greenish. .............

Temple of the Night Sun

The pyramid-temple, known today as El Diablo, is the largest of a group of buildings sitting high on an escarpment 525ft (160m) above the Early Classic Maya city of El Zotz, established in about AD 350. Its Maya name is Pa’Chan, which means either ‘Split Sky’ or ‘Citadel Sky’, and it looks out across a spectacular valley of the PetÈn Basin that connects the eastern and western Maya territories.

Re: X Marks the Spot
Savitr (Sanskrit: stem savitr-,) is a solar deity in the Rigveda, and one of the Adityas i.e. off-spring of Vedic deity Aditi. His name in Vedic Sanskrit connotes "impeller, rouser, vivifier". He is sometimes identified with--and at other times distinguished from--Surya, "the Sun". When considered distinct from the Sun proper, he is conceived of as the divine influence or vivifying power of the Sun. The Sun before sunrise is called Savitr, and after sunrise until sunset it is called Surya.[1] Savitr is celebrated in eleven whole hymns of the Rig Veda and in parts of many others, his name being mentioned about 170 times in aggregate.
 Quoting: Wiki


[link to en.wikipedia.org]




Gayatri Mantra (the mother of the vedas), the foremost mantra in hinduism and hindu beliefs, inspires wisdom. Its meaning is that "May the Almighty God illuminate our intellect to lead us along the righteous path". The mantra is also a prayer to the "giver of light and life" - the sun (savitur).
Gayatri, the five-faced Goddess, is said to have domain over the five senses or pranas, and protects these five life-forces of those who chant the Gayatri Mantra. In her role as the protector, Gayatri is referred to as Savitri.
 Quoting: .



In traditional Brahmin practice the Gayatri Mantra is addressed to God as the divine life-giver, symbolized by Savitr (the sun), and is most often recited at sunrise and sunset.[34] It is believed by practitioners that reciting the mantra bestows wisdom and enlightenment, through the vehicle of the Sun (Savitr), who represents the source and inspiration of the universe.[19] Recitation at sunrise every morning is part of the daily ritual
 Quoting: Wiki


Oh God! Thou art the Giver of Life,
Remover of pain and sorrow,
The Bestower of happiness,
Oh! Creator of the Universe,
May we receive thy supreme sin-destroying light,
May Thou guide our intellect in the right direction.
