Question: could Kiwi57 be Aston? If I recall correctly, he's a Kiwi. Don't know year of his birth...yet.
As the Nahom crapshow continues, it's important to remember Darth's research.
I think he said he was Russell McGregor? Is that Pahoran?
Fun thread to re-read, thanks. You were on the money with this!
If I recall correctly Stargate had a strong Egyptian element in it. Lots of mystical and speculative stuff was attached to Egypt, then and now. Yesterday's esoterica is today's pseudosciencefiction. When the new Doctor Strange movie comes out you'll see all kinds of neoTibetan BS that come right from the theosophist handbook. The pulp and comic book writers used to go dumpster diving in the cultic milieu of these fringe groups for ideas. So did the Surrealists earlier on, but from a different perspective.
