Popular science makes various claims about the motivations for the Pyramids and various other facets of ancient Egyptian culture. These claims are based on and influenced by the mindset and thinking patterns of the scientists. Which means they are not necessarily correct.
The picture in this blog entry demonstrates how scientists can reach what seems like a logical acceptable explanation for something, yet that explanation can easily be shown to be questionable.
Just like most of the explanations scientists have provided for the other creations of ancient Egyptian culture.
The picture below is called “Nefertari Led By Horus”. The description of the picture is something like “Horus leads Nefertari….somewhere.
The name of the picture and the definition are based on how the scientist who wrote them thinks. That person is most likely a person who believes in male domination. It is natural for that person to assume that a male in front of and holding the hand of a female who is behind him, must be leading her somewhere.
The arrows pointing forward from the man in the next picture emphasize what the person who titled and described the picture sees.
The picture could be described in an entirely different way. The picture could be called “Nefertari restrains Horus”, or “Nefertari controls Horus”. Both of those descriptions could be accurate based on what is shown in the picture.
The next picture shows arrows pointing from Nefertari to the rear to highlight how Nefertari could be pulling backwards on Horus.
Female human beings naturally restrain or act as a restraint on male human beings and their actions. It is part of the design function of the female human being. The restraining or controlling function of the female human being can be exercised in a beneficial way, or it can be misused in a way that will cause harm or distress to the male human being.
It is just as likely that the Nefertari is holding Horus back, as it is that Horus is pulling Nefertari forward.
When any set of facts and claims are presented for judgment, knowing how the individual presenting the facts and claims thinks, can help in understanding why the presenter has reached the conclusions they have, and whether or not their conclusions seem valid.
