The texts that accompany this symbol spoke of the practices (processes) that linked the human being to "the source of life energy", while the structures upon which the symbol was placed acted as amplifiers of this energy. These resonating structures were used to:
- convey the energy flow (information) over a distance,
- restore an organism's bio-energy rhythms by synchronizing them with the flows of energy emerging from the depths of the Earth. That is why on some dolmens we come across vertical versions of the pictogram symbolizing the upward flow of energy, coming from the Earth.
In speaking of energy, the vitally active element of creation from which all the rich variety of life forms proceeds, we at the beginning of the new millennium are capable of grasping what lies behind these words. For centuries, this ancient knowledge remained as inaccessible for humanity, thrown back into the night of ignorance, as it was in Aristotle's time. More than 5,000 years before Thales visited Egypt, its priests possessed precise knowledge in the natural sciences – and it is only the vanity and blinkered attitudes of representatives of science, still unwilling to acknowledge such "predecessors", that prevents the study and perception of the evidence left in stone by Ancient Egyptian culture as the expression of scientific knowledge and methods, above all in the realm of medicine and parapsychology.
That knowledge and those methods are of a comparable level at least to ours today, and in a number of instances go far beyond what our civilization has yet accomplished.
