A visual overview of the Nile, running from the middle of Sudan to the Mediterranean sea, which is fed by two tributaries, the White Nile and the Blue Nile, the latter of which is fed by snow melting in the Ethiopian mountains.

In rivers, Nile (LH:16) (TL:120|#271), aka “Nile River” (CR:104), in Greek Νειλος (NE:365), isopsephy-named after the number of days of the year (Fideler, 1993), is north-flowing river, predominately located in Egypt, whose tributaries are the Blue Nile, originating from Lake Tan, in Ethiopia, and the White Nile, originating from Lake Victoria, in Kenya and Tanzania, which, owing to annual snow melting in the Ethiopian mountains, floods annual, rising to heights of 30-feet, lasting 150-days, from Jun 25th, marked by the helical rising of Sirius, to Dec 25th, aka Christmas, marked by the perceptual re-birth of the sun.

Overview

Flood cycle

On 25 Jun, at the point of the helical rising of Sirius, a star previously absent for 70-days, the Nile, owing to snow melting in the Ethiopian mountains, begins to flood, rising to heights of 30-feet, lasting for 150-days, to Dec 25, the rebirth of the sun, as shown below:

This is an astro-hydrology pattern that forms the basis for over 75 percent of all modern religions. The following is a view of the flood from Cairo looking towards the pyramids, where we see islands being submerged and later rising, following the flood:

Crop season

During the Khoiak festival[1], Dec 10 to Jan 8, in the month after the flood receded, Egyptians made Osiris cakes, symbolic of Osiris as the god of vegetation, which is why he has green skin.

When the flood recedes, it leaves behind black fertile soil on the banks of the Nile, at which point the Egyptians would plant their crops, marking the start of the crop season.

On 10 Dec to Jan 8, the Khoiak festival[1] was celebrated, wherein Osiris "corn mummies" were made and grown, at the end of which, on day 30 (Jan 6), the djed pillar (aka Christmas tree), symbolic of the backbone of Osiris, mythically conceptualized as tamarisk tree (evergreen tree), was raised, signifying the reborn Osiris, out of the tip of which the sun, in the form of the phoenix would rise into the sky.

Dam

In 1970, the Aswan High Dam was completed, which ended the summer floods and their renewal of the fertile soil, fundamentally changing farming practices.

Quotes

The following are quotes:

“The Egyptians hold the festival of Isis at the time when they say she is mourning for Osiris. At that time the Nile river begins to rise, and it is a common saying among the natives that it is the tears of Isis that cause the river to rise and water the fields.”
Apuleius (c.165AD), Eleventh Book; cited by Wallis Budge (1904) in The Gods of Egypt, Volume Two (pgs. 216-19) [2]
“The periodic rise and tall of the Nile, is associated with the myth of Osiris, divine principle of perpetual return, death and rebirth, as symbolized by the annual cycle of vegetation. Heliodorus, the ancient novelist, points out in his Ethiopian Romance that Neilar is called ‘Horus’, the ‘giver of life’, the ‘savior of all Egypt’, the ‘father of Egypt’, the ‘creator of Egypt’, and he who ‘brings mud each year’. In Roman times the Nile was itself called ‘the year’. As one scholar notes, ‘this conception not only reflects the rather precise annual recurrence of the flood, but also apparently sought to relate it to the magical power of time’. Seeing that the Egyptians saw the Nile as the ‘exact counterpart of heaven’ and the ‘year incarnate’, it is only appropriate that the word Nile, spelled as it was in ancient Greek, totals 365, the number of days in the year—a fact noted by several ancient writers.”
