2 Horus was the son Isis and Osiris, who was treacherously slain by by his brother Seth. In revenge, Horus sought out his uncle and slew him, but Seth teared his eye out and broke it in six parts.

3 But another god, Thot, the eye doctor, spit on the parts and the parts came together again. ?

4 This is why the Eye of Horus became the heraldic flag of ophthalmology But is this all about? Thot was also the god of the moon, the creator of the calender and the master over time for gods and humans!

6 Egyptian writing 2900 – 100 ac Hieroglyphic typwritten or print Hyeratic handwriting difficult to read Demotic = Ptolemies, Romans Text from right to the left, numbers variabel In our time: Usually (!) transposed: from left to right (transliteration), then translated in Indo-Arabic Indo-Arabic (we) from left to right We and Egyptians from right to left! In German In English 13 – 19 also r l But addition and subtraktion: We and Egyptians from right to left!

7 Egyptian numerical writing decimal system no zero ( 0 )! additive To read in the direction where a head of a digit is looking handle rope rolled up Lotos flower Raised finger tadpole god

8 Egyptian = additive writing of numbers against 6 digits !

11 Major difficulties with fractions Egyptians calculated with unit fractions (1/ n) ¾ was written ½ + ¼ 6/7 was written ½ + ¼ + 1/14 + 1/28 14/28 + 7/28 + 2/ /28 = 24/28 = 6/7 the scribes had tables of important fractions, like 1/3, 2/3, of the most commun numbers, e.g. 2/3 of 27 (the month) 18 2/3 of 365 (the year) 243 the least common multiple

12 1 1/2 1/4 1/8 1/16 1/32 1/64 I The six parts of the Horus Eye are used as hieroglyphs of fractions for measurement of volumes of grain (Hekat) The whole eye =hekat

13 Hekat = dry measure for grain The whole eye = 1 hekat 1 hekat 1 gallon 4,5 l ½ hekat 2,25 l ¼ hekat 1 quart 1,125 l 1/8 1 pint 1/64 hekat = 5 ro 1 ro = 1/325 Hekat 1 spoon

14 Summary: The egyptian scribes had, with the parts of the eye of Horus, simple hieroglyphes at hand, to write, add and handle fractions for the most important thing in daily life: FOOD (GRAIN); the story behind - a tale or myth to provide an explanation!

41 Osiris war von seinem Bruder Seth getötet worden, und als Horus, der Sohn des Osiris und der Isis, seinen Vater zu rächen versuchte, riss ihm Seth ein Auge aus und zerriss es in sechs Teile. Doch ein anderer Gott, Thot, der Augenarzt, spuckte darauf und stellte es so wieder her A. Pichot, Die Geburt der Wissenschaft, Campus Verlag 1995, S.164
