Since the publication of Zenet One in 2008 (ISBN 978-1-4092-6015-8), I have been making notes and working to complete this volume, Zenet Two - "THE 31st GOD". I have studied all the known ancient Z/Senet boards, and have reviewed all relevant Egyptological literature. To really understand Egyptian Hieroglyphics it is necessary to dig beneath the surface in order to uncover previously unnoticed associations, visual puns and so on. It will be substantially longer than the previous volume.

The book is largely complete already but needs tidying up and typesetting, so although I have stipulated the book will be with you by end of May 2015, my realistic hope is that it will arrive well before then! If you become involved as a sponsor with this K.S. project I will post updates and preview extracts. There should also to be a longer version of this film on kemetic.org website when I post it back up.

I have been writing and publishing ancient and occult games since before 1982, have worked as a games consultant, inventor, designer, magazine editor, involved with over 50 commercial product launches. I write commercial classic strategy games software and am a psychotherapist, MSc Neural Computation, MBPsS. Years ago I started and ran the MENSA International Occult SIG, we published a newsletter of various experiments. I am to blame for the Posthuman Manifesto of 1988, and currently I travel about and make films for posthuman.TV  

Risks and challenges

I am fairly certain the book will happen and will use Lulu again probably, the Gods and Goddesses willing! (NOTE: ntr.w and ntr.wt are both used as the plural of deities and not just the masculine form as "Neteru" which I see all over the place). In the book I usually give the Sacred Signs themselves, plus transliteration (e.g. ntr.wt) and English text, but like most Egyptologists I use the convention of the Greek names that were already in use before Champollion; i.e. "Osiris" rather than "Ausar" or variants.
