gaze of the sphinx [30 n parallel]
Gaze of the Sphinx on the Thirtieth Parallel:
The Thirtieth Parallel (30º N Lat) is the northern boundary of the Way of Anu, which established a neutrality zone. The sacred cities of the Four Regions were built as near to the Thirtieth Parallel as possible as landmark gateways of the neutrality zone.

· Eridu (also antediluvial)
Communication Device for Divine Messages:
Most ancient inscriptions describe the Sphinx as a communication device, with two caverns under its paws, which enable it to hear and speak. The stela between the paws of the Sphinx, erected by Thothmes IV, tells how the Sphinx spoke to him and promised a prosperous reign if he could remove the sands that have covered his limbs. Thothmes wrote how he fell asleep at the, “Splendid Place of the Beginning of Time,” near the “very great statue of the Creator,” the Sphinx, who introduced itself, “I am thy ancestor Hor-em-Akhet [Falcon of the Horizon], the one created of Ra-Aten.” Within temples surrounding the Sphinx, exists many Ear Tablets and depictions of Twin Doves, a symbol associated with oracle sites, suggesting that the Sphinx could transmit Divine Messages.
Sacred Guide of Immortality on the Line of Neutrality:
The numerous Egyptian funerary texts consider the Sphinx (sometimes depicted as a double Sphinx) as the Sacred Guide of the Celestial Barge, which carries the deceased from yesterday to tomorrow. Coffin Spells enabling the deceased journey along the Path of Hidden Doors indicate that it began at the Sphinx, when it pronounced, “Pass by!” The Book of Two Ways illustrated the journey of the deceased as two ways starting from Giza and destined for the Duat. The Egyptian Book of the Dead refers to the Sphinx as the “Great God who Opens the Gates of Earth,” suggesting that the Great Sphinx had a counterpart (double) at the gates of the Underworld (Duat), in central Sinai. The Gaze of the Sphinx guided the seekers of immortality through the realm of neutrality.
