Lord of Wisdom
Thoth is depicted as an ibis, or more often as an ibis-headed man. His name in Egyptian is Tahuti, which means "like the ibis."

Thoth's other names include Djhuty, Djehuty, Dhouti, Djehuti, Tehuty, Tehuti, Tahuti, Thot, Thout, and Zehuti, plus many, many more.
He is the god of the Moon, Magic, Medicine, Speech, Science, Equilibrium, Justice, Wisdom and Writing, and he is the Lord of the Gates of the Universe.
He invented hieroglyphs and today is the overseer of the Internet.
The name Thoth also means "Thought" and "Time."
His is the unseen force whereof the gods are sprung. He is the Charioteer of the East - the Lord of the Past and of the Future.
Thoth is the Lord of the Shrine which standeth in the center of the Earth*. We call it the Sphinx and the Pyramids of Giza.
* Giza is located a the geographical center of Earth's land mass.
The Legends of Thoth
Thoth overcame the curse of Ra, thus allowing Nuit to give birth to the five elements. It was he who helped Isis work the magical ritual that brought Osiris back from the dead, and he drove the poison of Set from her son, Horus, with the power of his magic. He also supported Horus during the his deadly battle with his uncle Set, and healed his eye that Set had wounded.
When Ra retired from the earth, he told Thoth of his desire to create a Light-soul in the Tuat in the Land of the Caves, and it was over this region that the sun god appointed Thoth to rule, ordering him to keep a register of those who were there, and to issue just punishment when it was warranted.
Thoth thus became the representative of Ra in the afterlife, always seen actively playing his part in Maat's Judgement Hall of the Dead.
In fact, it was Thoth himself who gave birth to the Sun when he, as an ibis, layed a golden egg containing Ra.
Later, this was distorted and it was said that he did this in the form of a goose - giving rise to the metaphor of "the goose that layed the golden egg."
Depictions of Thoth
In art, Thoth is usually depicted with the head of an ibis, which derived from the curve of the ibis' beak, which of course resembles the crescent moon.
During one of his adventures, Thoth disguised himself as a baboon. Thus the baboon became an animal sacred to Thoth. The Ape of Thoth is said to follow him everywhere, and when he utters wisdom, the Ape distorts his words and their meaning so that men can never seem to hear the Truth.
He was sometimes depicted with the face of a dog-headed baboon and the body of a man or, again, as a full dog-headed baboon. The dog-headed baboon was a night animal who would greet the sun with chattering noises each morning - just as Thoth, the moon god, would greet Ra, the sun god, as he rose.
Thoth the Scribe
Thoth was the inventor of writing and was considered to be the scribe of the underworld.
As the cosmic inscriber, he wrote the complete story of our entire Reality.
Then he placed it into Grids for us to experience and learn through the alchemy of time and consciousness.
This Grid program of experience - is electromagnetic and consciousness-sensitive in its nature, and allows for the bipolar aspects of radial time and reality - as contrasted against linear time and illusion.
Also, he was the inventor of the 365-day calendar (rather than the original 360 days), having won the extra 5 days by gambling with the moon in a game of dice for 1/72nd of its light (360/72 = 5).
He constructed a pyramid-shaped vehicle that illustrates the nature of reality. He placed half of it above ["That which is Above"] in the nonphysical (spiritual) realm and half of it below ["... is like that which is Below"] in the physical (material) realm, thus creating the X Box at the center of the planet (Giza) where it all began and it will all implode at the Zero Point - the time and place of perfect balance. . .(+1) + (-1) = Ø.
Thoth and Maat
As the author of the spells in his cosmic best-seller, Coming Forth by Day - known to us as The Aegyptian Book of the Dead - he is a helper (and a punisher) of the deceased as they attempt to enter the Judgement Hall of Osiris on their way to the underworld known as the Tuat.
In this role, his wife was Maat, the personification of justice and order, whose "feather of the law" was weighed against the heart (the causal body) of the deceased to see if they had followed Maat (Truth) during their lifetime.
The Roles of Thoth
Thoth did many things. Among others, he was:
- The One who Made Calculations Concerning the Heavens, the Stars and the Earth,
- The Reckoner of Times and of Seasons,
- The One who Measured out the Heavens and Planned the Earth,
- He who Balances - the God of the Equilibrium and Master of the Scales,
- The Lord of the Divine Body,
- The Scribe of the Company of the Gods
- The Voice of Ra,
- The Author of Every Work on Every Branch of Knowledge - Both Human and Divine,
- He who understood all that is hidden under the heavenly vault.
Thoth and the Hidden Knowledge
It is written in several ancient texts that Thoth wrote a major work of magical importance that would one day be found. The Aegyptians spoke of a Book of Thoth that would allow a person who read it to become the most powerful magician in the world.
In fact, such a book was published in 1944. Written by the Master Therion, it was interestingly titled, The Book of Thoth, and was strictly limited to 200 copies.
Today it is exceedingly rare (>).
(<) However, it has been reprinted in the ever-popular softcover format, and is available everywhere for a mere pittance.
Small wonder, then, that there are so many powerful magicians amongst us.
The 42 Scrolls of Thoth
Thoth allegedly wrote many scrolls in which he set forth fabulous knowledge of magic and incantation, and then he concealed them in a tomb.
He understood the mysteries of the heavens and the earth, and these he revealed by inscription upon sacred scrolls that were hidden in the Earth, intending that they should be searched for by future generations, but found only by those of higher consciousness.
Some of these are referred to as The 42 Books of Thoth. Their influence has been tremendous on the development of western occultism and magic.
These "books" were initially written on papyrus and, at one time, could be found within the Royal Library at Alexandria. Alas!
A chronicler of ancient lore, one Clement of Alexandria, stated that 36 of these scrolls contained the entire Egyptian philosophy:
Four  scrolls were on astrology; 10 scrolls on law, 10 scrolls on sacred rites and observances; 2 scrolls on music; and 10 scrolls on writing, cosmography, geography, mathematics, measures, and the training of priests.
Six  remaining scrolls concerned the physical body and medicine, discussing diseases and medical instruments.
Most of these scrolls - along with thousands of others - were lost during the burning of the royal libraries in Alexandria.
Alexandria was founded in Aegypt by Alexander the Great. His successor as Pharaoh, Ptolomy II Soter, founded the Museum or Royal Library of Alexandria in 283 BC. The Museum was a Shrine of the Muses (from whence the name "museum" derives), modeled after the Lyceum of Aristotle in Athens.
At one time, the Library held over half a million documents from Assyria, Greece, Persia, Aegypt, India and many other nations.
The first person blamed for the destruction of the Library is none other than Julius Caesar. In 48 BC, Caesar found himself outnumbered and in enemy territory. He ordered the ships in the harbor to be set on fire. The fire spread and destroyed the Egyptian fleet. Unfortunately, it also burned down part of the city, including the great Library.
But, others blame Theophilus for destroying the scrolls when he razed the Library prior to making it a Christian church.
The final individual to get blamed is the Moslem Caliph Omar. In 640 AD, he captured Alexandria. Upon hearing of "a great library containing all the knowledge of the world" he said, "These scrolls will either contradict the Koran, in which case they are heresy, or they will agree with it, and so they are superfluous." So, all the texts were destroyed by using them as tinder for the bathhouses of the city, and it took six months to burn them all.
So who did burn the Library of Alexandria? Nobody really knows. Probably everyone mentioned above had some hand in destroying some part of it.
Many surviving books were supposedly secretly buried in the desert where they are said to be presently located (back into the tomb again). A few initiates of the mystery schools allegedly know their location. Whatever else remains of the surviving lore of Tahuti has been passed down through the generations with much of it having been published in many languages.
Thoth's Appearance in Other Cultures
Thoth was identified by the Greeks as being similar to their god Hermes, and the two were eventually combined as Hermes Trismegistus.
In Rome, Hermes became Mercury and he remained their corresponding Thoth-like deity, for his role was Communication.
Thoth's qualities appear in the Mayan deity, Quetzalcoatl. The Mayan Calendar has an ending date of December 21, 2012 - but that's a different webpage.
In the Ancient Age (the Atlantean Era) and its transition into our recorded history via its outland colony, Ancient Aegypt, Tahuti has been identified with Zep-Tepi.
This metaphoric legend illustrates a causal connection between the Atlantean grid program and the Ancient Aegyptian grid program.
Within Time and Space, there are those beings who move from one reality to the next reality, creating the electromagnetic programs that determine consciousness and experience. These beings move through the place known as Zero Point, where matter and antimatter fuse in order to create new realities.
Zero Point, known to the ancient Hindus as Pralaya, is a place of awakening and a place of forgetfulness. It is the beginning and the end of everything. It is the place where realities are shaped through sound, light and color. The term Zep means Zipper (closing and opening), and implies "Rips in Time."
Zep Tepi is Genitor and Genesis. Zep means "Time." Tepi means "First." Together they constitute the "First Time," where the "Elohim" (gods) moved in the Void and created the grid of our reality. We know them as the Pantheon of the Egyptian Gods: Ptah, Ra, Set, Osiris, Isis, Horus, Ma'at, and Thoth, who came to our realm about 12,600 year ago.
To the Ancient Aegyptians, the highly visible constellation Orion was the most significant of the stellar configurations.
At Zep Tepi (Zero Point), Orion was at its lowest position in the southern sky. From Zep Tepi onward, the Precession of the Equinoxes has been gradually carrying Orion/Osiris higher and higher into the sky.
Both the Sphinx, whose date of birth is said to be 10,500 BC, and the shafts of the Great Pyramid that are positioned to indicate 10,500 BC, indicate that a remarkable astronomical arrangement of the Sun, Orion/Osiris, and the constellation of Leo occurred at the time of Zep Tepi.
