Unlocking the Secrets of the Megalithic Communication System in Ancient Egyptian Temples

Ancient Egyptian megalithic temples hold a significant place in history as they were not only a place of worship but also a reflection of the human body. It is fascinating to see the evidence of this when looking at the stone nervous and arterial system supported by dovetail notches and hammer marks.

These megalithic temples were built using massive stone blocks, some of which weighed more than 100 tons, and were often decorated with intricate carvings and hieroglyphics. However, the earliest examples of megalithic temples, including the pyramids of Giza, are not adorned with these type of decorations, but they do have interesting joint patterns, external stone notches or handles and chisel markings.


In modern construction, joints are an integral part of stone masonry and serve several important purposes.

  • The primary purpose of joints is to create a bond between adjacent pieces of stone. Stones are naturally irregular in shape, size, and texture, so joints allow for a more even distribution of weight and stress throughout the structure.

  • Joints also help to prevent cracking and damage caused by shifting or settling of the foundation.

  • Joints in stone masonry can also be decorative. Different types of joints, such as flush, recessed, or beveled, can create a variety of visual effects and patterns. Joints can also be used to highlight the natural beauty of the stone by creating contrast between different colors or textures.

  • Joints can also play a role in the weatherproofing of a stone structure. By using mortar or other sealants to fill gaps between stones, joints can prevent water from penetrating the structure and causing damage over time.

  • Dovetail notches are a type of joint that is used to connect two pieces of stone together. The joint consists of a series of interlocking trapezoidal shapes, which are cut into the stone. This creates a very strong and stable connection between the two pieces of stone, as the interlocking shapes prevent the stones from slipping or sliding apart.

However, when we look at the joints in the megaliths, most of them are much smaller than the actual size of the blocks and the placement is not always between two stones or in a location that makes them aesthetic.

Another curious feature are the chisel marks in the megalithic blocks. Again, the chisel marks do not seem to serve an engineering purpose. However, if we start to think about these structures as replicas of the human form or as something dynamic, then we can widen our assumptions about the purpose of the cuts and markings.


According to Chinese medical theory, acupuncture works by balancing the body's energy flow, or qi, which flows through channels called meridians. The meridians are not physical structures but they connect the body's organs and tissues, and when they become blocked or imbalanced, it can cause health problems. Over time, ancient healers mapped out a network of meridians that corresponded to different organs and functions in the body.

A more physical communication system is the human circulatory system with the heart at its center. At the cellular level, the heart is made up of various types of cells that work together to keep the heart beating.

One of the main types of cells in the heart are cardiomyocytes, or heart muscle cells. These cells are responsible for the contractions that pump blood throughout the body.

Cardiomyocytes have a unique structure that allows them to perform their function. They are elongated cells with a central nucleus and striations that run perpendicular to the long axis of the cell. These striations are made up of a series of repeating units called sarcomeres, which are responsible for the contraction of the cell.

Together, these cells, cellular communication channels and meridians allow the human body to coordinate their activities and respond to changes in their environment.


In previous post we have mentioned that the ancient Egyptians were very aware of the properties of stone and used the qualities of the stones for many purposes, including sound healing. The roof of the temple of Hathor at Dendera is a place where the stone goddess was carried during during the start of the New Year, or at the time when the star Sirius was rising in the sky.

Despite the irregularity of the megalithic stones, the notches and the chisel marks on the roof, they may have all served a coordinated purpose of connecting stellar energy to the building below during this sacred time. And with Hathor being the goddess of love, it is not a stretch to think that her temple would be the beating heart, channeling energy from the stars, to everything around it.

Overall, the ancient Egyptian temples were built to remind people that their physical bodies were beautifully made and that the replicas of their bodies were the limestone and granite structures we see today. Although these marks and notches may not have any structural value from an engineering standpoint, they served an organic purpose as channels for energy, just like our human cells are connected and communicate by cellular channels, junctions and intracellular pathways.

The temples were a testament to the beauty and majesty of the human body, and their intricate design and purpose serve as a fascinating reminder of the importance of our physical existence.
