Gnostic Media interviews the always thought-provoking DM Murdock aka Acharya S in their latest podcast. I hadn't heard of this podcast before but they seem to have a strong interest in entheogenic research, which syncs well with today's post on The Secret Sun. Acharya has a new book out on the Horus-Jesus connection, which draws on some of her ideas presented in Zeitgeist.
For what it's worth, I think that a lot of these connections are drawn not from the classical Egyptian mysteries, but from later cults in that wacky era of promiscuous syncretism in the early centuries of the Christian era, when all of these solar cults (including Christianity) were running around looking for converts and ripping each other off.
Additionally, my present thesis is that everything after the reign of Horus was a metaphysical corruption of a physical reality. Which is to say that I think Horus was a real person (after a fashion) who was later deified and absorbed the aspects of a whole host of other local sun, sky and war gods. But I'm nuts, so don't listen to me.
Right or wrong, love her or hate her, Acharya is always passionate and lucid and way smarter than any of us. Plus, she always pisses the right people off. So go listen.
