This is a genuine oddity, a 4,000 year old Egyptian Statue moving on its own. It has been standing quite still in a museum in Birmingham, England for 80 years, but has now become active, moving in a slow circle daily.
Ok, I'll bite...Does anyone know who this statue represents? If this is not a hoax, that is very important to know. I have had some recent synchronicities around ancient Egypt, so I am intrigued.
Looks like I have a new research project unless someone knows and can fill me in.
It's a funery offering made in the name of someone named Nebsenu. Here is some interesting information: http://egyptmanchester.wordpress.com/2013/02/25/the-mystery-of-the-spinn...
I have been busy and was just sitting down to research this fascinating story when I saw your post.
I'll keep looking, but it appears that Nebsenu may possibly be Nebseni, a scribe and priest, and copyist of 'The Papyrus of Nebseni', also known as 'The Formulae of Going Forth by Day' or 'The Book of the Dead'. The dates may be off though. The museum indicates this figure of Nebsenu to be from around 1800 B.C., but Nebseni wrote his papyrus during the 18th dynasty, which would have been around 400 years later than the date listed by the Manchester Museum. My first thought when I saw statue was that he was a scribe. (And of course, over the long period of ancient Egyptian history, there most certainly could have been more than one man of prominence named Nebsenu or Nebseni and this could just be a coincidence!)
One other interesting note is that this is a synchronicity for me in regards to the 18th Dynasty in the last few days. The 18th Dynasty was the fascinating family that produced Akhenaten and Tutankhamun. I will definitely be looking into this more to see what I can discover. Whatever caused this little statue to move, natural or otherwise, it is getting the world's attention at this time.
It appears that the vibration caused by people moving through the area might be moving the statue. It only moves during the day as people move through the area. Its weight is not centered, its heavier on one side than the other, which I believe would help this happen. Its on a smooth glass or acrylic surface. Although the description above states that it has been still for 80 years, has there been some change in its conditions? Has it been moved?
The 'vibration' theory has been thrown out there, but experts have said that isn't what is causing the movement either.
I would be interested to know if it continues moving counter-clockwise for a full circle, or if it stops moving once it is facing away from the people passing by. If this video is an indication, the statue stops moving once it is facing away. (Counter-clockwise is interesting too, if you look at it metaphorically...Going backwards!)
One of the more intriguing oddities I've seen, and it probably has a very hum-drum explanation. Still in all, an attention getter...And it's probably a coincidence that things in Egypt right now are pretty thorny too?
Unfortunately, all I got was a note from YouTube saying "This video is private".
The burden of Egypt. Behold, the Lord rideth upon a swift cloud, and shall come unto Egypt: and the Idols of Egypt shall be "MOVED"at his presence, and the heart of Egypt shall melt in the midst of it.
We are seeing Egypt going thru some hard times but 20-25 there is hope for Egypt as the Lord shall bring them into himself.
There has been a theory that in ancient times heavy objects were moved using frequency. It would be interesting if that's the case here, I wonder if they turned off lights etc, anything that has a constant frequency, hum or buzz, if the movement would stop or change in any way.
