Welcome to this web site.  The material presented here is a compilation of some of the research that I, Ken Bakeman, have done over the past several years in regards to what might be referred to as Arcane Egyptology.   This means that the subject matter deals with hidden and secret aspects of ancient Egyptian civilization.  Emphasis is placed on understanding the esoteric content of architectural, sculptural and iconographic design through the application of geometric analysis.

That geometry plays a central role in contextualizing Egyptian esoterica is evident in nearly every aspect of Pharaonic civilization.  Even the most elegant and delicate designs used in Egyptian decoration followed predetermined geometrical guidelines.   A wonderful example of this is shown in the graphic below that replicates faience tiles probably from the temple palace of Ramesses III at Nay-ta-hut.  Click here to see its design layout.

It is hoped that those who meander through this site will find it interesting, thought provoking and maybe even a little bit elucidating.  To your ka!
