[The entire article is CTSTDT worthy, I reccomend you read it. Urbanek argues Egyptian mythology is true based on coincidences with Ra the sun god. Keep in mind Urbanek is Christian.]
We can predict business, political and cultural cycles by looking backward to ancient Egypt and the cycle of Ra, the sun god. (Ra, pronounced "rah," is also known as Re, "ray.")
Thus spoke Ra: "I am Khepera at the dawn, and Ra at noon, and Tem in the evening." Khepera rolls the sun across the sky like the scarab rolls a ball of dung. He has the power of resurrection and self-renewal, bring the sun back to life after it "dies" at night. Ra at noon, depicted as a falcon, brings power and wisdom, but also brings an unforgiving heat as the sun descends to earth. Tem, represented by the water lily, carried the god force through the night, assuring its return in the dawn.
The Ra cycle is being repeated in modern history, with each god of the trinity representing a different era. Khepera brings rebellion, freedom and creativity, but in his later stages falls into decadence and economic speculation, such as witnessed in the "Roaring Twenties." When the bubble bursts, as in the stock market crash in 1929, Ra at noon appears as a reactionary force, seeking to restore order and morality, often through war against internal or external enemies. After war, nations turn to Tem for rest and recovery, as Europe and Japan did during the 1950s.
How far can we trace back the modern Ra cycle and what great persons embody the gods?
