Lightbulb The Awakening

Hathor, the goddess of turquoise..
Gold mining in Upper Egypt can be traced back to predynastic times, and the earliest map known in the world from the Ramesside Period dating to about 1160 BCE, shows the route to the gold mines in the Wadi Hammamat, Eastern Desert.. Gold mining started with alluvial workings in Egypt and was followed by shallow underground vein mining in Nubia about 1300 BCE, during the New Kingdom period..The methods of working included fire-setting to weaken rocks by thermal shock, a method described by Diodorus Siculus in his Bibliotheca historica written about 60 BCE..

A major temple to Hathor constructed by Seti II was found at the copper mines in Timna valley; another temple was discovered in Serabit el-Khadim, where turquoise was mined in antiquity, in an expedition led by Sir Flinders Petrie..Egypt became a major gold-producer during the Old Kingdom and remained so in the next 1,500 years, with interruptions when the kingdom broke down..During the New Kingdom, the production of gold steadily increased, and mining became more intensive as new fields were developed..Egypt has substantial mineral resources, including 48 million tons of tantalite (fourth largest in the world), 50 million tons of coal, and an estimated 6.7 million ounces of gold in the Eastern Desert..

The Awakening..

The film opens on an Egyptian archaeological dig in 1961..Three of the main characters are introduced: Matthew Corbeck, his wife Anne Corbeck & Jane Turner... Matthew & Jane are discussing their efforts to uncover the tomb of an ancient Egyptian queen..Corbeck & Turner discover a long hidden tomb that bears an inscription:"Do Not Approach the Nameless One Lest Your Soul Be Withered"..They continue on to discover the burial chamber of Queen Kara..Margaret, now eighteen (the age of Queen Kara when she died), goes to England to meet her father against her mother's wishes..Corbeck & Jane tell Margaret all about Kara, the violent murders she committed, and the myth that she could reincarnate herself..Release date (USA) 31 October 1980 - Grateful Dead Live at Radio City Music Hall - The Polish government recognizes Solidarity - Reza Pahlavi, eldest son of the Shah of Iran, proclaims himself the rightful successor to the Peacock Throne - Miss Scarlet..Have you ever given any thought to the kingdom of heaven?... a little research..And like any psychopath, he’s a great actor..Anyway, these people get dressed in the outfits, they play the characters, they even re-enact the stories..I sat in the sun on a bench; the animal within me licking the chops of memory; the spiritual side a little drowsed, promising subsequent penitence, but not yet moved to begin...
