Followers of Horus
They were, we suspect, astrologers and astronomers par excellence who had been following and recording the position of the vernal point across the ages from the epoch of the Zep Tepi - the 'First Time' to the epoch of the historical kings of Egypt.
'Mythical' beings, sometimes seemingly divine, sometimes human, who are always portrayed as the bringers and preservers of knowledge down the ages, for resurrection/rebirth.
Responsibility for maintaining the 'time bridge' linking the world of men and that of the gods was attributed to the Followers of Horus Identifiable with the 'Seven Sages', the only divine beings who knew how the temples and sacred places were to be created, and survivors of the Flood, and the 'new world' created by the Sages were designed as 'the resurrection of the former world of the gods.'
Members of the hidden, shadowy academy/brotherhood may have been at work behind the scenes in Egypt, observing the stars with scientific rigor and manipulating men and events according to a celestial timetable often associated with leonine symbolism Shemsu Hor ('Followers of Horus') literally means "those who follow the path of Horus (the Horian/solar way) .
"The "RX" sign seen on all pharmacies, is a prayer to Horus, the Egyptian God of Healing. Chemistry comes from Khem (Egypt). Alchemy - the father of psychedelia...from Al (God) Khem (Egypt).The war on drugs is really a war against "the pharmakoi" - a ritual scapegoated group represented in classic Greek theatre. "Pharm" is the same in the Old Testament word "pharmakaia" or witch. Hence the war on drugs maintains elements of the witch-hunt, scapegoat and irrational hysteria - even mythologically inspired hysteria that will not go away. "
