Egyptian Statue Moving

Something strange has been happening at the Manchester Museum, a three thousand eight hundred year old statue of the god Osiris is moving. See: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-manchester-23030009. The ten inch high Ancient Egyptian figurine, dedicated to the Pharaoh Neb-Senu, has been rotating slowly, just about a quarter of a circle every day. This is probably caused by sound vibration or heat imbalances generated by sunlight; I notice that the figurine only moves during daytime. It would be interesting to see if it moves faster on sunny days and slower when it's cloudy. As you’ll read in the article, Prof. Brian Cox has wasted no time getting down to his new job as Token Media Skeptic by publicly bringing up this point. However the reason I want to bring this matter to the attention of HPANWO is not because I’m particularly convinced that there’s something supernatural going on, but to applaud the courage of the museum’s curator, Anna Garnett, because she thinks there is indeed something supernatural involved, to do with Egyptian spiritual traditions and has stated this openly in a BBC interview, see: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-23029507. Don’t worry, despite my doubts I’m not about to turn Skepper myself; she might be right! Further research should be done to find out. The problem is that I know very well that Skeptics can be extremely cruel and aggressive to non-Skeptics, especially those in positions they feel only Skeptics should occupy; and they’ll be coming for her!
