The mythology of the Dogon tribe of Mali describes how their one true god Amma created all of the matter of the universe. But the system defined by these tribal myths bears a striking resemblance to the actual scientific structure of matter, starting with the atom and continuing all the way down to the vibrating threads of string theory. Moreover, many of the Dogon words, symbols and rituals used to describe this structure are a close match for those found in the myths of ancient Egypt and in the daily rituals of Judaism.Hidden Meanings presents a side-by-side comparison of Dogon descriptions and drawings with matching scientific diagrams and definitions from authors such as Stephen Hawking and Brian Greene, then traces these symbols to their ancient Egyptian and Judaic counterparts. What is ultimately revealed is a scientific basis for the Egyptian hieroglyphic language - perhaps deliberately encoded more than 5000 years ago, and hidden from all but the most knowledgeable Egyptian priests. Along the way, it presents compelling new explanations for many of the most familiar Egyptian symbols, such as the Pyramid, the Benben stone, and the Scarab, along with new derivations for words used in Judaism and Christianity, such as Adonai, Yahweh/Jehovah, and even the origin of the name Satan.
