We need to get out and vote this year or USA Republicans will lose majority in Congress and Trump will be impeached.
Akhenaten (also spelled Echnaton, Akhenaton, Ikhnaton, and Khuenaten; meaning "living spirit of Aten") known before the fifth year of his reign as Amenhotep IV (sometimes given its Greek form, Amenophis IV, and meaning Amun is Satisfied), was a Pharaoh of the Eighteenth dynasty of Egypt who ruled for 17 years and died perhaps in 1336 BC or 1334 BC.
Akhenaten was an unusual Egyptian pharaoh. Before he ascended to rule, Egypt was polytheistic with Osiris being the most important god. When Akhenaten came to the throne, he replaced them with a henotheistic style worshipping the sun-god Aten, a different solar deity than Ra. Akhenaten claimed to be a child of Aten and that Aten came down from the sky to tell Akhenaten that this is the way for things to be.
Previous pharoohs depicted themselves in artwork to the people as a rather macho with heavy upper body muscles and a fit body. Akhenaten instead showed him as he really was. He had a frail, feminine body, feminine face, and a gigantic alien-looking head. He also had the art depicting his wife Queen Nefertiti, and their children--one of which is Tutankhamun--in the same way. In the 20th century when archaeologists from Britain found their tombs, they found Akhenaten, Nefertiti, and their children also had the same non-human appearance. It is unknown what genetic conditions gave them this otherwordly appearance.
He ruled for 17 years until the Egyptians rebelled against his changed. After his rule, the Egyptians changed things back to how they were before and defaced the artwork Akhenaten had his subjects make.
Aleister Crowley channeled a spirit called Aiwass/Lam who taught him Egyptian occultism. This being also had a gigantically oversized skull.
