If there are two cultures that in one way or another have managed to mix with each other, even though the rise of one is almost three thousand years away from the other, it is the popular extraterrestrial culture with that of ancient Egypt. Scholars of conspiracy, ufology and scientology claim that the relationship between the two worlds is undeniable and, indeed, could explain many of the advances in current technology. Believers often rely on the Tulli Papyrus to assert their arguments about aliens.
A papyrus discovered in 1933 that could give us an exact connection between UFOs and Egyptian civilization. However, Tulli’s Papyrus also has the collective scepticism that its origin is so unknown that it could make anyone doubt it.
Tulli’s papyrus, a connection between aliens and ancient Egypt?
Alberto Tulli was in charge of copying the writings he found in an antique shop during a visit to Cairo in the 1930s. Tulli mentioned that papyrus was too expensive for him, so he decided to copy them only to translate them. When he discovered what he was saying, incredulously he returned to buy the original, but the seller had disappeared.
In simple words, the writings related how some of the King’s guards witnessed a strange object that rushed over their land and from which creatures with a wingspan they had never seen before came out; bodies up to 45 metres long, without a voice (or with a different language). They warned Pharaoh and he ordered an investigation, but when they returned, the number of apparitions in heaven had multiplied.
The alien issue remains skeptical in the community.
Although Scientologists, UFOs and other scientists and researchers rely on the truthfulness of this document, more traditional historians refuse to accept that it is real, firstly because of the state of deterioration in which the papyrus is found, and secondly because it is not the original supposedly found.
Really, that it is not the original document is very thought-provoking, but Tulli, no matter how much of an historian he was, was unable to write out of his own imagination such a long and detailed text in such a strange language that he had to devote months, even years, on many occasions, to it in order to translate it in its entirety, since he did not have the current technology.
Whether it is real or not, it is strictly up to the interpretation of the one who believes it.
