The Wise-men of old knew perfectly well that myths and legends of Old contained deeper meanings. Aristotle (in his Metaphysics, x. 8) admits, with regard to Greek mythology, that much Wisdom had been lost, and much "added after the mythical style," while some knowledge, "may have been preserved to our times as the remains of ancient wisdom." Polybius a Greek historian of the Mediterranean, and world famous for his book called “The Histories”; in which he covered in detail the period of 220-146 BC; he also confesses, changes in those myths and legends were recognized as a "necessary means to (the Gatekeepers) political ends." Michael Neander (1529 -1581) a German astronomer, says that the connections between the constellations of the night sky and the ancient legends were "the fragments of a tradition, which transmitted the knowledge of divine things possessed in the earliest times.”
There are legends found in books of the Qumran caves that speak of several nonhuman beings that gave Mankind certain pieces of knowledge (not all good) some examples are the manufacturing of mirrors with the implication that those mirrors were clad with liquid metal, quicksilver and a written language. Therefore, for clarification, I have taken a short excerpt from my book Locked Gates by Howard West; and turned that excerpt into a video that shows the historical connections that links the Egyptian god Horus to the ancient Twitter system of Egypt, I am Twitter the Great Falcon.
