UNRAVELING THE ORIGINS OF THE PEARL OF GREAT PRICE
* ArchiveGrid : Michael H. Chandler and the Pearl of Great Price : 1986 update, 1986
  - Eyewitness accounts associated with the Joseph Smith Papyri
    - Certificate from Michael Chandler, 6 July 1835, Page 72
      [Research Note: Michael H. Chandler's Certificate, stating: "This is to make known
      to all who may be desirous, concerning the knowledge of Mr. Joseph Smith, jr, in
      deciphering the ancient Egyptian hierogliphic (sic / hieroglyphic) characters, in my
      possession, which I have, in many eminent cities, shown to the most learned: And,
      from the information that I could ever learn, or meet with, I find that of Mr. Joseph
      Smith, jr to correspond in the most minute matters." This is a complete contradiction
      of the Joseph Smith Papyri statement that "The consensus among both Mormon and
      non-Mormon scholars is that the characters on the surviving papyrus fragments do
      not match Smith's translation." It is reminiscent of the warning given by the Lord,
      concerning the
Lost Manuscript of the Book of Mormon, that "forbade Joseph from
      retranslating the book of Lehi and warned him of adversaries possessing the lost
      manuscript who might attempt to manipulate the text (if retranslated) and then
      discredit the published version of the Book of Mormon." In other words, Egyptian
      scholars have "translated"
inconsistent gibberish for ancient records, placing them
      out of sync in both time frames and social relationships. This
discredits themselves.
      So, the explanation of facsimile #3 from the Book of Abraham, shows Olimlah, a
      (black) slave belonging to the prince; along with Abraham; the kind King Pharaoh;
      the Prince of Pharaoh, King of Egypt; one of the king's principal waiters; Abraham
      reasoning upon the principles of Astronomy, in the king's court. Astounding in fact,
      that the highly intellectual concepts of the heavens would be shared within such a
      very personal, cosmopolitan setting. This is gibberish distorted completely as slave
      Olimlah becomes Anubis; with words spoken by Anubis who makes protection Lord
      of heaven, Foremost of the Westerners. That a slave would converse is most absurd;
      whose lowly nakedness is shown by an apron covering only the front of the body.]

Egyptologists (those studying the field of Egyptology), and

  of the Joseph Smith Papyri. Some apologists of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-
  day Saints (LDS Church} have (incorrectly) postulated that many of the papers may
  have been produced by Smith's scribes without his involvement, and that they may
  have been intended as a speculative or naturalistic effort rather than a product of
  revelation." This is completely refuted by
Document Transcript:
Discourse, 7 April 1844,
  as Reported by Wilford Woodruff, Page 133. Known as the
King Follett Discourse. This
  Discourse has a specific section concerning
The Character of God; with a total of (10)
  references to His immortal Character; expounded upon in the Grammar and Alphabet
  of the Egyptian Language; and the central theme from which all the other characters
  are meaningfully identified; His Eternal Body containing a centralized fullness of Joy.
  The controversy felt by some Egyptologists and scholarly specialists comes from not
  considering the two-fold traditions of the Egyptians; one handed down through writings
  of inspired prophets, as established within the Grammar and Alphabet; and spurious
  records handed down through Pharaoh, the eldest son of Egyptus, the daughter of Ham;
  he who sought "earnestly to imitate that order established by the fathers in the first
  generations"; as subsequent Pharaohs did claim the right of Priesthood from Noah;
  as Abraham explains in his record, his own father being led away by their idolatry.
  Both record sources, however, center on the clear merits of religious government.
  Indeed, the whole key of understanding is the central theme of the effort to construct
  the Grammar and Alphabet as it centers in the fact that God himself, finding he was
  in the midst of spirits and glory, because he was more intelligent, saw proper to
  institute laws whereby the rest could have a privilege to advance like himself. Thus,
  the very fabric of the Egyptian Grammar and Alphabet is to create a language record
  that transmitted the glory of god to weaker intelligences, for their own magnification.
  And since the greatest Joy of Eternity was to have an immortal, body and its spirit,
  the language conveyed, would ultimately rest upon the body, parts and passions
  of Ahman and Son Ahman, as revealed to mortals by the Holy Ghost; the Godhead.
  This begins with the understanding that the human body is noted as a Temple of God.
  Thus again, Abraham had his servant
Eliezer put his hand under the Patriarch's Thigh,
  to swear "by the Lord, the God of heaven and earth"; also, Abraham was circumcised,
  to remember daily, in bodily functions, that all truth is circumscribed in one great whole.
  And Four cubits: (that is from <the length> the end of the longest finger to the end of the
  other when the arms are extended: making in our measure{ment} seven feet, which is
  twenty=one inches to a cubit.); it would relate back to the body of Adam, the First King;
  and carry on down through the Patriarchal Order. through the Fathers; the Patriarchs.
  And the straight mark over or under a character, is identified as Zip Zi; i.e., all women,
  it took its origin from the earth yielding its fruit. And located at the navel; the first woman
  who bore children (Eve, the Mother of All Living); men were multiplied upon the earth;
  all above the navel, signifies above, more, greater, more glorious, the heart and mind;
  and beneath the naval signifies beneath less smaller least; pelvic area, legs and feet.]
* Mormon Studies
  [Research Notes from King Follett Discourse: When we understand the character of God
  and how to come to him, he begins to unfold the heavens to us, and to tell us all about it.
  When we are ready to come to him, he is ready to come to us.. . . All things whatsoever
  God in his infinite wisdom has seen fit and proper to reveal to us, while we are dwelling
  in mortality, in regard to our mortal bodies, are revealed to us in the abstract, and (are)
  independent of (any) affinity of this mortal tabernacle, but are revealed to our spirits (by
  the power of the Holy Ghost) precisely as though we had no (physical) bodies at all, and
  those revelations which will save our spirits will save our (temporal) bodies. God reveals
  them to us in view of no eternal dissolution of the (physical, mortal) body or tabernacle.
  This is fully confirmed by Chapter 12: Doctrine and Covenants 29: . . . "Wherefore, verily I
  say unto you that all things unto me are spiritual, and not at any time have I given unto
  you a law which was temporal; neither any man, nor the children of men; neither Adam,
  your father, whom I created." Adam is noted as patriarchal "father" of Joseph Smith, Jr.;
  indicating the eternal, infinite multi-generational authority of the Patriarchal Priesthood,]

* Working Scratch Pad: Grammar and Alphabet of the Egyptian Language
  Grammar & Alphabet of the Egyptian Language, circa July–circa November 1835, P. 1
  [Research Note: The Joseph Smith Papers: Road to Carthage Podcast Episode 8
  Transcript, notes: "A Conversation with
Dallin H. Oaks and Richard E. Turley Jr.".
  Mention is made that: "for historians and other scholars seeking to make sense
  of the past, it is vital that we understand as well as we can the cultural contexts
  in which events occurred." . . . (much later in the discussion) . . . Richard E. Turley Jr.
  opines: "We came to recognize that probably the most difficult of our church presidents
  to tie down in terms of sources and original materials was Joseph Smith because he
  died before we had stenographers who were taking down his talks verbatim. Thus,
  "stenographers" is the grand key word, in comprehending the Grammar and Alphabet
  of the Egyptian Language; by
pondering, meditating, studying, and word reflecting.

 
Stenography: Where It Started and Where It Is Today | U.S. Legal Support states:
  "The most basic, ancient form of stenography began in 450 BC. But back then, it
  had another name: cuneiform. This was similar to "caveman" writing, almost like
  the Egyptians' hieroglyphics. Different from the English language that assigns words
  with letters and gives each letter an individual sound, cuneiform grouped sounds
  together and assigned them to symbols. The symbols were then assigned a picture,
  and this shorter, graphic-telling communication was not only understandable and
  easy to teach, but timely and efficient. Several centuries later, China reinvented
  cuneiform and turned it into what we now call Shorthand. The Egyptian form of
  shorthand was called
Hieratic script | Definition, Hieroglyphics, & History | Britannica.
  Thoth was the Egyptian god of the moon, of reckoning, (i.e., of historical reflective
  learning, or record keeping, as the moon reflects to the earth the Glory of the Sun),
  and of writing. Thoth was the creator of languages, the scribe, (aided by the goddess
  Seshat); interpreter, and adviser of the gods, and the representative of the sun God Re.

  Therefore, the Grammar and Alphabet of the Egyptian Language, is comprehended.
  when properly understood within the framework of modern day shorthand dictation.
  Comparison of Characters, in conjunction with the
Document Transcript, does identify
  examples of the shorthand methodology. Characters were independent and arbitrary,
  without a straight (horizontal) mark inserted above or below it. Thus, by inserting the
  straight mark over a character, it increases its signification five degrees: by inserting
  two straight lines, its signification is increased five times more. And by inserting three
  straight lines, its signification is again increased five times more than the last. There
  are five connecting parts of speech, for verbs, participles, prepositions, conjunctions
  and adverbs. Translating any character, its subject must be continued until there are
  as many of these connecting parts found in the character. . . . The character alone
  has 5 parts of speech; and increase by 3 horizontal lines, it becomes 125 x 5 = 625.
  Additionally, numerical correlation is made with Beth= <Be=eth>. This character is
  found in the first degree. It has an arbitrary sound or signification which is Beth;
  and also a compound sound which is Za, and comprises one simple sentence for its
  signification. It is only increased or lessened in its signification by its connection
  with other characters. One connection with another character, gives it a compound
  signification, or enlarges the sentence: Two connections increases its signification
  still; Three increases it still: Four increases still; and five still. This is as far as one
  sentence can be carried in the first degree. In its arbitrary sound it may have more
  sounds than one, but can not have more than five sounds (which apparently are
  related to vowels, a, e, i, o, and u). When compounded with others, only one sound.
 
Egyptian Alphabet, circa Early July–circa November 1835–C, Page 1 Some examples:
  From Second part of the first degree, starting with Albeth, and progressing through:
  Al / ka / beth; Al / che / beth; Al / chi / beth;  Al / ko / beth; Al / ku / beth; It is noted:
  Albeth is inserted with ka, che, chi, ko, and ku, within the word Albeth.
  So, Albeth independently has two designations, or meanings:
  First, that of disembodied spirits or Saints.
  Second, that of Angels in an unalterable state.
  The insertion of ka presents the dual concepts of:
  men after they are raised from the dead; or, Ministers of God.
  The insertion of che presents the dual concepts of: high priests; or, Kings.
  The insertion of chi presents the combined dual concepts of:
  Ministers of God; or, under, or less than high priests.
  The insertion of ko presents the combined dual concepts of:
  Ministers not ordained of God; or, sinful.
  The insertion of ku presents the combined dual concepts of:
  Ministers who are less sinful for want of power
  Then, as a second witness or written testimony, the same similar process continues
  with Ba=eth, independently, as: The name of all Mankind---man or men. Followed by:
 
Document Transcript: Ba-eth; Ba=eth=ka; Ba-eth kee; Ba-eth ki; Ba-eth ko; Baeth ku;
  or, Adam or the first man, or first King; The next from Adam, one ordained under him;
  The third ordained under Adam; The fourth from Adam; The fifth high priest from Adam.
  The concept of independent characters, having two designations, or meanings, appears,
  in conjunction with additional combined dual concepts or meanings; to scope the word
  definitions in form and manner, so that definitional concepts are applicable to mankind
  in life or death, from a pre earth life, unto ultimate exaltation in the highest glory degree
  of the Celestial Realms of God, and all attached glorified creations; to the depths of Hell.

  Significantly, the straight mark over or under a character, is identified as Zip Zi; i.e.,
  all women: it took its origin from the earth yielding its fruit. And from the first woman
  who bore children (Eve, the Mother of All Living); and men were multiplied upon
  the earth; used as a numeral by being inserted above or below another character:
  it increases by being drawn above, and signifies above, more, greater, more glorious,
  and when inserted under signifies beneath less smaller least. (Temple Endowed; such
  as Phah ho e oop = extension of power by marriage or by ordination, or anointing).
  It is self evident the Grammar and Alphabet was spoken and hand / body expressed;
  particularly memorized, conveyed using jointed fingers and thumb; feet and toes,
  And the pupil of the eye, the black hole in the middle of the iris; it is represented
  by Iota: the eye or to see or sight sometimes me myself; The eye, or to see, or sight,
  sometimes me, myself; Eye=to see=sight, sometimes Me, myself; see, saw, seeing
  or having seen; See, saw, seeing, or having seen or having been seen; me myself;
  adds that having been within= in the earth, includes To be with, as light is in the earth,
  and showing the denomination of languages and through what descent they continue.
  Iota nitahveh ah-que= its signification is increased from the first degree five times; for
  instance I saw five times twenty-five persons, or one hundred and twenty-five persons:
  Its signification may be lessened one half by the mark as in the margin-- and again
  lessened one half of the latter half the mark as in the margin; signification is increased
  tenfold by the mark as in the margin: Its signification is again increased one hundred
  fold by the additional mark in the margin: and its signification is a multiplying adjective.
  Locations in astronomical starting points: locate the Celestial residence of Kolob, using
  the numerical multiplication of 5, going from Beth, man's first residence, graduating up
  by 5 times to the whole Earth, (for the act of going up to going up, climbing, ascending
  towards the sun), to Eternity, as the place of happiness where God the Father resides,
 
Decoding the Star Charts of Ancient Egypt, (published by) Scientific American, requires
  understanding of the fact that the planet Earth is transforming through various cycles in
  the planning; birth, or creation; youthful vigor; cleansing, baptizing by water;
switching,
  or modifying over time, from a Telestial, to a Terrestrial, to an ultimate Celestial Sphere.
  The transition from a Telestial to a Terrestrial state, for example, is predicted to include
  the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall be turned into blood, and the stars shall
  fall from heaven; and there shall be great signs in the heavens above, and in the earth
  beneath; and there shall be weeping and wailing among the inhabitants of the earth;
  and there shall be a great hailstorm sent froth to destroy the crops of the earth;" (that
  which indicates tremendous and immediate climate changes with great cold and heat).
 
Revelations printed in The Evening and the Morning Star, June 1832–June 1833, Page 2
  And all this interconnected with the governing planets or stars of the vast Universe; or,
  in other words, the governing power, which governs fifteen other fixed planets or stars.
