The Eye of Horus is amazing. It provides us with the information we need to understand how we perceive the world around us, and even provides a factually accurate replication of where, inside of our physical brain, our perceptions form.
Horus is recorded as the ancient Egyptian sky god, and is often depicted as a falcon. His right eye was associated with the sun (Ra) and the symbol represents the markings around the eye of the falcon. The Eye of Horus is often used to symbolise sacrifice, healing, restoration, and protection.
If you are interested, we will now take a look at the information the eye gives us.
In Ancient Egypt, fractions were only written as the sum of two other fractions, e.g. instead of writing ¾ they would write ½ + ¼ with scribes carrying reference tables with the answers.
Back in Egyptian Mythology, the god Set tore out the eye of Horus, and it was the magician Thoth who put the eye back together and there was 1/64th missing. Adding the fractions of the Eye of Horus we do, indeed come back to 63/64.
There is some speculation, that the missing 1/64th represents the magic that Thoth used to put it back together, but equally there is speculation that the missing 1/64th is represented by the pupil of the eye (which is missing from the images).
What we can see from the images is that they form the basis of a Fibonacci number sequence. The Fibonacci sequence is the basis of all life.
It would (therefore) appear that there is not any element ‘missing’ from the Eye of Horus since within a Fibonacci sequence the number 1 appears twice (1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, etc.).
The Eye of Horus has (several) specific meaning(s). Note first that the eye is represented in six parts. These six parts correspond to the six senses -
The eye represents the receptors of input … or data … or “food” for the mind. These senses are ordered according to their importance, thus effectively telling us how we most effectively absorb the ‘data’ from around us.
If you have a quick look at the Mathematics section below, you will see that one of the things the Eye of Horus does is represent a fractional quantification system to measure the parts of a whole. The entire eye measures 1 heqat.
So, to which extent do our senses affect our mind?
Perhaps you will have noticed that there are, indeed, six senses depicted by the Ancient Egyptians, as opposed to the five senses that we are given to consider in ‘modern’ times.
It is, naturally, interesting that the sense described as “thought”, or the ‘sixth sense’ if your prefer, is considered more important to our ability to process information correctly than the remaining three senses of hearing, taste and touch combined …
So, if thought is one of the most powerful ‘senses’ and it is our senses that define our perception, then clearly our thoughts have an (arguably) disproportionate effect on the world around us. This is very easily proven using hypnosis.
A quick ‘google’ around can find you plenty of instances where a hypnotist places a person into a trance and gives them the suggestion that the raw, peeled, onion that they are holding is, in fact, the world’s juiciest, sweetest, tastiest apple. That person’s thoughts will then over-
This shows perfectly how powerfully our thoughts can over-
The mind is a powerful, powerful thing.
That discovery, in it’s own right, is enough to explain why the symbol of the all seeing eye is perfect for Tranceformed Perceptions.
But … as is said in the bible … seek and ye shall find. So, when we start to dig a little deeper we begin to find more interesting relationships between the Eye of Horus and the world which we perceive around us.
The third eye (sometimes referred to as the inner eye) is a mystical concept referring to an esoteric invisible eye which is said to provide perception beyond our ‘normal’ physical sight. Within dharmic spiritual traditions, for example Hinduism, the third eye refers to the ajna, or brow, chakra. A chakra is explained as being an invisible vortex, or toroid to be more precise, of energy. Energy, in this context, is not like electricity, but instead an invisible source of life energy that might be equivalent to the Chinese Chi, or Japanese Ki, or Indian Prana. In modern Theosophic traditions, it has been related to the pineal gland.
The third eye is said to be a “gateway” that leads to inner realms and spaces of higher consciousness. It is often associated with spiritual visions, or clairvoyance, and with a person’s ability to see aura’s, chakra’s, etc. (broadly called a person’s energy system).
Of course, ‘modern’ medicine, ‘modern’ religion and ‘modern’ life (in more general terms) utterly discounts the existence of anything beyond the physical form.
Let’s now take a look at a cross-
One of the most interesting aspects of examining a cross-
In many religions, there is a depiction of a “third eye” usually in the middle of the forehead, just above the junction of the eyebrows above the nose.
In hindu traditions, a dot is often placed there. In Christian traditions, ash is smeared there. In modern theosophical, Gnostic and magical traditions, not to mention Chinese Tao-
None of this gives us a conclusive answer, does it? And so, we leave it to the readers of this page to make their own decision, to form their own thoughts as to which school of thought they believe.
It is remarkable to see an almost perfect replication of the Eye of Horus within the human brain, however, isn’t it?

“… you’ve made me a man again! I can’t thank you enough, and neither can Mrs ******! I wasn’t able to perform [sexually], and have had it like that for years. Going back and finding out why this happened meant that I could deal with it. My only issue is that the sessions aren’t long enough. I felt so good that I didn’t want to come out [of hypnosis]”
“I don’t know how to write this, so bear with me. For years, … I’ve pretended to orgasm so often that … I didn’t think it was even possible. You blew that idea out of my head alright. When I think about it it feels weird. I go to ‘sleep’ and wake up able to have shuddering orgasms but I feel so good about it that I just disregard my own surprise. I will certainly be recommending you.”
“Colin, we’re just back from holiday … I did the self hypnosis trick you showed me and imagined the flight as I wanted to experience it. It was great to be part of the trip this time … I must admit that I felt a little anxious in preparation for the holiday, but stuck with your ‘homework’ and it paid off big time. Thanks, buddy, for all your help.”
“I’ve tried the patches, tried the gum, and it didn’t make a blind bit of difference. I was stunned by what you were telling me in our session, couldn’t believe it, but you took the time to explain it and it really hit home. I AM A NON SMOKER … and I love it. Thank you so much. Can you please tell me why is this not available on the NHS?”

“Thank you, Colin, for giving me back my self confidence. You know what it’s like and you gave me the encouragement to lose my weight. This time, the weight is falling off me!I’ve lost almost two stones already … I feel in control again.”
