Page 10 - PHAISTOS DISK PICTOGRAPHS, WITH DRAWINGS
BY SIR ARTHUR EVANS

The pictographs below are exact tracings by me of the pictographs on the Phaistos Disk. Apparently, I am the only person to ever do this. Before I began working on the disk I traced each pictograph because the only other pictograph images I could find were Sir Arthur Evans' freehand drawings of the pictographs, which obviously he did in a hurry. But Evans did not have the advantage of a copy machine as I did.

I duplicated each pictograph tracing the number of times it appears on the Phaistos Disk, and then I taped each one onto my tracing of the disk spirals, to pinpoint their exact locations. Because each repeated pictograph on the Phaistos Disk was intended to appear exactly identical, the only way to exactly duplicate the disk is by using a copy machine to duplicate each pictograph. I include Evans' pictographs drawings below, to the left of each one that I traced.

These are pictographs, not hieroglyphs. Sir Arthur Evans makes the case for Cretan pictographs in his book Cretan Pictographs and Prae-Phoenician Script.

Position = location of the sign on the disk
Segment = the line segment in which the sign occurs
Both are relative to the center of the disk spiraling out,
A = Side 1, B = Side 2
Click the text links to see the Argotypes (Arktypes, Ships of the Sky, Constellations
I think many of the pictographs are abbreviations for the constellations.)

"As Above, So Below = Duat"


Gaze at the above geometry and watch it flip. The hood of the initiate looks up, then down. (left, Hoodwink of a robe, Phaistos Disk pictograph) As above, so below, a concept that became predominate in ancient and modern mysticism as describing the mirrored nature of reality, describes the two-sided Phaistos Disk when placed side 1 above side 2. Disk below is as disk above, yet one turns clockwise and the other counterclockwise depending on which center begins the journey through the spirals. This is also the concept of Duat, that the world above and the world below mirror each other but as mirror image reversals. Widely theorized is the idea that the Great Pyramid was built to mirror a constellation, thus expressing this ancient Egyption concept of Duat.

The special effects of the geometry above are visible to any eyes no matter when those eyes gazed upon it, now or 3,600 years ago, but we can see this 3D effect (afforded by the spiral "background" of the disk) so much better, and as intended, thanks to computer graphics software. The two sides of the disk are connected by these matching pictographs and preserve this ancient religious philosophy of Duat, an expression of Dualism, the religious philosophy that indicates a system which contains two essential parts - the above or spirit part and the below or physical part, and their connection.
