(7 Muluk (Water) / 12 Kumk'u - 189/260 - 22.214.171.124.9)
ZEP TEPI: ancient Egyptian, translated as "FIRST TIME" or "FIRST TIMERS", referring to a remote epoch prior to ancient Egypt and associated with Osiris, legendary bringer of civilization to the then primitive and canabalistic ancient Egyptians. Revered as a god of resurrection and rebirth.
During the fabled "First Time, Zep
Tepi, when the gods ruled in their country: they said it was a golden age during
which the waters
of the abyss receded, the primordial darkness was banished, and humanity, emerging
into the light,
was offered the gifts of civilization. They spoke also of intermediaries between
gods and men - the Urshu, a category of lesser divinities whose title meant
'the Watchers'. And they preserved particularly vivid recollections of the
gods themselves, puissant and beautiful beings called the Neteru who lived
on earth with humankind and exercised their sovereignty from Heliopolis and
other sanctuaries up and down the Nile. Some of these Neteru were male and some
female but all possessed a range of supernatural
powers which included the ability to appear, at will, as men or women, or as
animals, birds, reptiles, trees or plants. Paradoxically, their words and deeds
seem to have reflected human passions and preoccupations. Likewise, although
they were portrayed as stronger and more intelligent than humans, it was believed
that they could grow sick - or even die, or be killed - under certain circumstance."
- Graham Hancock - _Fingerprints of the Gods_
The ancient Egyptians left records describing the Zep Tepi as actual historic peoples who were very advanced and came to the Nile valley from the south and proceded to civilize and rule over the native peoples. This group of people known as Zep Tepis were survivors of disaster in their former home and sought safety and a new life in the Nile valley. It is they, according to the Egyptian records that built the Great Sphinx and the Pyramid complex at Giza.
"Egypt has recorded and kept eternally the wisdom of the old times. ...all coming from time immemorial when gods governed the earth in the dawn of civilization." - Plato
The "Building Texts" inscribed on the walls of the Temple of Edfu in Upper Egypt contain remarkable references to the Zep Tepi, the bringers and preservers of knowledge down through the ages.
Zep Tepi is Genesis. "Zep" means time. "Tepi" means first. These peoples were also referred to as the "Ancestors" and the "Sages" and count amongst their kind such notables as Osiris, Thoth or Hermes, etc. and are represented by the slouching lion (the Sphinx and the Age of Leo approx. 12,000 years ago). They are further associated withwater for they were, in Bible terms, the anteduluvian peoples whose culture predated the Great Flood.
According to the great American twentieth century psychic Edgar Cayce, the Zep Tepi were the survivors of Atlantis who fled to Egypt to escape disaster. They brought with them civilization and knowledge which awaits us today buried beneath or near the Great Sphinx in a "Hall of Records".
