Pharaoh, prophet, and high priest in the
period of the New Kingdom c. 1460 B.C., who expanded the Egyptian kingdom to
include most of the Middle East. His most decisive victory was on a battlefield
near Mt. Carmel where he led the entire army single file through narrow Megiddo
Pass to surprise and defeat an alliance of 330 rebellious Asian princes--a
daring maneuver protested by the pharaoh's terrified officers. Thutmose alone
was assured of his plan and rode ahead holding aloft the image of AmenRa, the
Sun God who had promised him the victory.
Greek philosopher of the sixth century B.C., the "fair-haired Samian" who was regarded as the son of Apollo. As a youth, Pythagoras conferred freely with priests and scholars, eagerly seeking scientific proof of the inner law revealed to him in meditation upon Demeter, the Mother of the Earth. His quest for the great synthesis of truth led him to Palestine, Arabia, India, and finally to the temples of Egypt where he won the confidence of the priests of Memphis and was gradually accepted into the mysteries of Isis at Thebes.
When Asian conqueror Cambyses launched a savage invasion of Egypt c. 529 B.C., Pythagoras was exiled to Babylon where the prophet Daniel still served as king's minister. Here rabbis revealed to him the inner teachings of the I AM THAT I AM given to Moses, and here Zoroastrian magi tutored him in music, astronomy, and the sacred science of invocation.
After twelve years, Pythagoras left Babylon and founded a brotherhood of initiates at Crotona, a busy Dorian seaport in southern Italy. His "city of the elect" was a mystery school of the Great White Brotherhood where carefully selected men and women pursued a philosophy based upon the mathematical expression of universal law, illustrated in music and in the rhythm and harmony of a highly disciplined way of life. After a five-year probation of strict silence, Pythagorean "mathematicians" progressed through a series of initiations, developing the intuitive faculties of the heart whereby the son or daughter of God may become, as Pythagoras' Golden Verses state, "a deathless God divine, mortal no more."
At Crotona, Pythagoras delivered his lectures from behind a screen in a veiled language which could be fully comprehended only by the most advanced initiates. The most significant phase of his instruction concerned the fundamental concept that number is both the form and the essence of creation. He formulated the essential parts of Euclid's geometry and advanced astronomical ideas which led to Copernicus' hypotheses. It is recorded that two thousand citizens of Crotona gave up their customary lifestyle and assembled together in the Pythagorean community under the wise administration of the Council of Three Hundred; a governmental, scientific, and religious order who later exercised great political influence throughout Magna Grecia.
Pythagoras, the "indefatigable adept," was ninety when Cylon, a rejected candidate of the mystery school, incited a violent persecution. Standing in the courtyard of Crotona, he read aloud from a secret book of Pythagoras, Hieros Logos (Holy Word), distorting and ridiculing the teaching. When Pythagoras and forty of the leading members of the Order were assembled, Cylon set fire to the building and all but two of the council members were killed. As a result, the community was destroyed and much of the original teaching was lost. Nevertheless, "The Master" has influenced many great philosophers, including Plato, Aristotle, Augustine, Thomas Aquinas, and Francis Bacon.

Kuthumi ascended master
Ascended masters such as Kuthumi work subtly and not so subtly enter the stage of history to teach to initiates .They appear in different forms of growth,reputedly so. This is indicative of their own growth and their stages as to how they are revealed to the world. This post only contains the two stages (there are others) of how Kuthumi appeared as Thutmose III and Pythagoras. He was gradually accepted to the mysteries of Isis in Egypt, apparently a culmination step of learning at that time. Notice his exile to Babylon and at that time the residing of the Prophet Daniel as King's Minister. He received here the teachings of the Rabbis of the "I AM THAT AM" given to moses. The Zoroastrian Magi tutored him in sacred music, astronomy and the sacred science of invocation. Twelve years later, the Brotherhood of Crotona and its destruction by Cylon as described below resulted in the loss of the teachings of that brotherhood. This city of the elect was a mystery school of the Great White Brotherhood. Was it designed the school at that time should perish.? Was it for our good? Was it not the right time in the universal scheme to disseminate their teachings? Was mankind not yet ready? The school taught a form of gnosis, salvific knowledge, to be sure. More of this later and more about the third pineal eye.
