How King Tutankhamun Died
21 OCTOBER, 2014
Research suggests Tutankhamun died from genetic weakness caused by family inbreeding

In November last year (2013), scientists announced that they had finally solved the mystery of King Tutankhamun’s death after 3,300 years. The boy king, they claimed, died after being struck by a speeding chariot . However, a new ‘virtual autopsy’ of the world-famous pharaoh has revealed that serious genetic physical impairments would have made riding a chariot impossible. According to a report in The Independent , the results instead suggest that Tutankhamun succumbed to genetic impairments that were caused by the fact that his parents were brother and sister.
Tutankhamun was the 11 th pharaoh of the 18 th Dynasty, a period of Egyptian history known as the New Kingdom, which was Egypt’s most prosperous time and marked the peak of its power. The king, who began his reign at the tender age of ten, became one of the most famous pharaoh’s of Egypt following the 1922 discovery of his opulent tomb by Howard Carter, along with his body and spectacular golden mask, and the tales of the supposed curse placed upon his tomb.

In February 2010, the results of DNA tests confirmed that he was the son of Akhenaten and Akhenaten's sister and wife. Marriage within family was not uncommon in ancient Egypt and was practiced among royalty as a means of perpetuating the royal lineage. The pharaohs believed they were descended from the gods and incest was seen as acceptable so as to retain the sacred bloodline. However, what they were unaware of the time was the severe consequences of family inbreeding. The fact that Tutankhamun’s parents had been brother and sister, resulted in numerous genetic conditions that the boy king suffered, including a cleft palate, a club foot, feminine hips, and a severe overbite.

Mystery has surrounded Tutankhamun ever since his death in 1323 BC, aged 19. Theories have ranged from violent murder to leprosy and even a snake bite. The most convincing explanation to have emerged was last year’s announcement that he had been struck by a chariot. This hypothesis had been supported by substantial evidence including x-ray and CT scanning technology which revealed a pattern of injuries down one side of his body. Computer simulations conducted by expert crash investigators showed that Tutankhamun’s injuries were consistent with those that would have been sustained in a chariot accident.
However, new research based on more than 2,000 computer scans and a genetic analysis of Tutankhamun’s family, suggests that the boy king could never have ridden in a chariot because of his serious genetic physical impairments, including his severe clubbed foot, which prevented him from standing unaided. This is backed up by the discovery of 130 used walking canes in his tomb.

The virtual autopsy revealed that only the fracture in his knee occurred before he died, while fractures in his skull and other parts of his body occurred after the boy king was already dead – leading scientists to believe he may have succumbed to an inherited illness.
Professor Albert Zink, head of the Institute for Mummies and Icemen in Italy said that the young royal’s death was most likely caused from him being in a weakened state as a result of genetic impairments inherited from his brother and sister parents. The study also showed that the frail king was afflicted with malaria, which may also have been a serious factor in the cause of death.

EDEN- Wake Up
Stay, you're not gonna leave me
This place is right where you need to be
And why your words gotta mean so much to them
And they mean nothing to me
So stay, you're not what you're hearing
Cause I've been watching you changing
And who said you're one in a million
Anyway?

B (If I should have a daughter)
https://www.ted.com/talks...have_a_daughter

If I should have a daughter,
Instead of “Mom”, she’s gonna call me “Point B.” Because that way, she knows that no matter what happens, at least she can always find her way to me. And I’m going to paint the solar system on the back of her hands so that she has to learn the entire universe before she can say “Oh, I know that like the back of my hand.”

She’s gonna learn that this life will hit you, hard, in the face, wait for you to get back up so it can kick you in the stomach. But getting the wind knocked out of you is the only way to remind your lungs how much they like the taste of air. There is hurt, here, that cannot be fixed by band-aids or poetry, so the first time she realizes that Wonder-woman isn’t coming, I’ll make sure she knows she doesn’t have to wear the cape all by herself. Because no matter how wide you stretch your fingers, your hands will always be too small to catch all the pain you want to heal. Believe me, I’ve tried.

And “Baby,” I’ll tell her “don’t keep your nose up in the air like that, I know that trick, you’re just smelling for smoke so you can follow the trail back to a burning house so you can find the boy who lost everything in the fire to see if you can save him. Or else, find the boy who lit the fire in the first place to see if you can change him.”

But I know that she will anyway, so instead I’ll always keep an extra supply of chocolate and rain boats nearby, ‘cause there is no heartbreak that chocolate can’t fix. Okay, there’s a few heartbreaks chocolate can’t fix. But that’s what the rain boots are for, because rain will wash away everything if you let it.

I want her to see the world through the underside of a glass bottom boat, to look through a magnifying glass at the galaxies that exist on the pin point of a human mind. Because that’s how my mom taught me. That there’ll be days like this, “There’ll be days like this my momma said” when you open your hands to catch and wind up with only blisters and bruises. When you step out of the phone booth and try to fly and the very people you wanna save are the ones standing on your cape. When your boots will fill with rain and you’ll be up to your knees in disappointment and those are the very days you have all the more reason to say “thank you,” ‘cause there is nothing more beautiful than the way the ocean refuses to stop kissing the shoreline no matter how many times it’s sent away.

You will put the “wind” in win some lose some, you will put the “star” in starting over and over, and no matter how many land mines erupt in a minute be sure your mind lands on the beauty of this funny place called life.

And yes, on a scale from one to over-trusting I am pretty damn naive but I want her to know that this world is made out of sugar. It can crumble so easily but don’t be afraid to stick your tongue out and taste it.

“Baby,” I’ll tell her “remember your mama is a worrier but your papa is a warrior and you are the girl with small hands and big eyes who never stops asking for more.”

Remember that good things come in threes and so do bad things and always apologize when you’ve done something wrong but don’t you ever apologize for the way your eyes refuse to stop shining.

Your voice is small but don’t ever stop singing and when they finally hand you heartbreak, slip hatred and war under your doorstep and hand you hand-outs on street corners of cynicism and defeat, you tell them that they really ought to meet your mother.

Challenges, changes, chances.
Challenges, changes, chances.
I am 36 now and I have such a strong feeling that everything in the world happens according to random encounters, especially depending on perfect chance or coincidence.
In the last couple of years, I have been suffering from an ongoing depression that has not killed me but it hasn’t also let me live in the most efficient and productive way. I have been so lazy in my personal deeds but so energetic and alert with my work-related acts. I have done almost nothing to feed my inner world, ideas and self-improvement. All those tiny little things in my daily life gave me temporary satisfaction that made me think that I was doing well. Now, I am under great exhaustion and I want to change things.
All the changes start with an awareness.
The first thing I realized that was a deep feeling of despair. Although everything seemed to be going well apparently, that was not true. I knew that. When somethings have awaken inside, I asked myself two simple questions: Since when I have been feeling like that? Why?
My answer to the first question is; almost for four years. When it comes to answer the second question I have various answers. The most obvious reason was the fear of aging and the trauma of becoming a stranger to my mature self with the slow disappearance of my childhood. I remember a quote from one of my favourite writers: “If you do not live your life without taking all the risks to be taken in each phase of your life, life will take its revenge sooner or later.” Obviously, I have missed certain things and I was full of regrets and blocked with all the daily illusionary satisfactions:pure self-deception. Now, I came to realize that a new period is starting and this time I should be ready to face the third phase of my life.
Life is full of challenges and the nature of human mind is purpose driven. When we give up fighting and creating new paths to discover all the colours of the life, we start to lose. Life does not systematically present new challenges for us to grow, it naturally takes us from one point to another and it is all our responsibility to paint our piece of work, to compose the best music ever, to write the best story, to cook the most delicious food. If we just choose to become only a passenger on the ship heading from one point to another, we will definitely miss all the beauty that we have earned the chance to get by becoming the winner among the millions.
So, the first thing to achieve in my to-do-list will be creating my own challenges rather that surrendering the ones that I have been presented with the circumstances in which I have not consciously chosen to be. My own challenges that only I can overcome. My challenges will take me to the changes that I have been dreaming of.
All the desired changes will bring me new chances for anything I would like to be and become.
I have such a strong belief that everything in the world happens with random chances and countless coincidences. There are many possibilities out there waiting for you. You only need to choose.

What a sweeping story. Can it be said that this is a reborn belonging to the one who had live in the darkness once upon a time? As pointed out above, the life just starts with being awake and concious.

The darkness comes and goes. A different interpretation of what is called life. This is what I have been going through for a time. As you said awakening at any point of life makes us feel alive and leads us to one step forward even if we sense this particular change deeply or not. Thank you for your comment and pleased to meet you!
