Who is Hu? (a few notes)

One of the names for the Sphinx at Giza is Hu. It is also the god of Taste, springing from the blood of Ra's phallus. Hu also means bad or wicked, and naked, as well as to grieve, to beat, to crush, and to slay. Huhu is the primeval watery mass whence came everything. In Egyptian Hu can also mean rain.

On the other hand, Hu is the name of one of the Hopi kachinas, the whipper kachina, that comes in order to bring rain to the desert. This figure has a black mask, goggle eyes, fangs and lolling tongue, and is an ogre. It carries a yucca whip in each hand. Sometimes it holds a rusty butcher knife in one hand and a whip in the other. Basically it keeps everybody in line, so to speak. I've seen this one in action, but I don't want to describe it because it is part of the sacred kachina dance. (You'll just have to come to Hopiland and see for yourself. The photo above is a Hu kachina doll.) Anyway, it acts as a guardian of the dance in the same way that its namesake in Egypt is guardian of the horizon.

Hamlet’s Mill says that Humeri is an antiquated Latin word for Orion. Humeri is also the plural of humerus, the long bone between the shoulder and the elbow.

According to Harold Klemp, spiritual leader of Eckankar, Hu is the ancient name of God as well as a love song to God. “HU is woven into the language of life. It is the Sound of all sounds. It is the wind in the leaves, falling rain, thunder of jets, singing of birds, the awful rumble of a tornado. . . . Its sound is heard in laughter, weeping, the din of city traffic, ocean waves, and the quiet rippling of a mountain stream. And yet, the word HU is not God. It is a word people anywhere can use to address the Originator of Life.”

Topper Site on 33rd Parallel

The Topper Site near Allendale, South Carolina has been radiocarbondated to 50,000 yrs. BP. http://www.athenapub.com/topper.htm

Does anyone else think it an odd "coincidence" that this site lies exactly 33rd parallel?
Latitude: 33 0 32 N

For the significance of this latitude, see my article
"Along the 33rd Parallel: A Global Mystery Circle."
