An exploration of the remarkably advanced ancient Egyptian cosmology. It surveys the applicability of Egyptian concepts to our modern understanding of the nature of the universe, creation, science and philosophy, such as the Big Bang, and their consciousness that All is One and One is All.

About the Author
Moustafa Gadalla was born in Cairo in 1944. He graduated from Cairo University with a Bachelor of Science in civil engineering in 1967. He immigrated to the U.S.A. in 1971, and continued to practice engineering as a Licensed Professional Engineer and Land Surveyor. He is an independent Egyptologist who spent most of his adult life studying and researching scores of books about Egyptology, mythology, religions, the Bible, languages, etc. He often lectures and writes articles about ancient Egypt. He spends a few months of every year in Egypt, visiting and studying sites of antiquities. As an engineer by training and practice, he approaches the issue analytically, logically, and writes the findings and conclusions in a rational and easy to understand way.

4.0 out of 5 stars Recommended reading 4 May 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
"Written for the general public, the book discusses the perception of the Egyptian god, the religion, and the religious beliefs. The author attains that neteroo are not gods, but rather : 'divine principles and functions that operate the universe', as well as representations of different aspects of one unique supreme being. This book also demonstrates how important the universe, creation, solar system (i.e. the Big Bang), science, numbers, and harmony was to the ancient Egyptians."

4.0 out of 5 stars wonderful, but some credit is due 9 July 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I think Mr. Gadella is a wonderful author and egyptologist, but his ideas are not as revolutionary as they are made out to be. A book written in the early 80's titled Egyptian Religion put forth a similar theory about the neterw and there is a small but growing religion called kemetic orthodoxy started in the 70's that follows a very parallel theology

By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com

Moustafa Gadalla's Egyptian Cosmology: The Absolute Harmony describes, showcases in reader-friendly fashion, the remarkably advanced concepts embodied within ancient Egyptian metaphysics. Egyptian concepts which served as the source of Western and Eastern metaphysics. Readers will discover that Egyptian cosmology is coherent, comprehensive, consistent, logical, analytical, and rational. From the casual reader to the serious student of metaphysics, Egyptian Cosmology is nothing short of fascinating as it surveys the applicability of Egyptian concepts to our modern understandings of the nature of the universe, creation, science, and philosophy. Egyptian Cosmology is an outstanding contribution to metaphysical studies.

4.0 out of 5 stars Easily accessable introduction to a complex topic 24 Feb 2001
By Bernhard W. Hoff - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Gadalla does an excellent job of pulling together the myriad aspects of ancient Egyptian religion and symbolism and presenting it as a complete, unified, and understandable system. It is so easy for modern western monotheists to simply dismiss ancient Egyptian religion as bizarre polytheism, where even animals are worshiped as gods (and so it seemd even to the average ancient Greek and Roman!) After reading this book, however, I came away with a deep appreciation of Egyptian thought and philosophy. In fact, their world view is not so alien from our own as aspects of their thought was picked up Pythagoras and other ancient western philosophers and so comprises some of our own world view today.
My only quibble with the book is that the author tries to show that the ancient Egyptians "had it right all along" by comparing their beliefs with what modern science teaches about the way the world works. No problem with this, except I caught a few errors in his understanding of science. Also, he is not too subtle in suggesting that the world might be a better place if we returned to believing this ancient "truth". But is is easy to overlook the author's advocacy because his explaination is so clear and thorough.
