SACRED TEMPLES OF THE
GODS, ATLANTIS OR ALIENS ?
For many thousands of
years (at least), near the mouth of the Nile River in Northeast Africa,
massive stone objects have stood as a testimony to time and perhaps a
great People who once lived there. Silent, but still very real. Who built
these masterpieces of architecture and what was their purpose?
Mathematically perfect, probably in more ways than we yet have the ability
to detect, the more you look at them, the more you learn about them, and
the more fascinating questions arise.
CARVED IN STONE;
CONSTRUCTION BEYOND THE AGES
Massive stone blocks
placed tens of stories high and with exacting precision that rivals modern
engineering. Egyptians could not have built them. The Great Pyramid's
height, when multiplied by one trillion, is the distance from the Earth to
the Sun !
When expert engineers
were asked how they would go about constructing such buildings, they
shrugged their shoulders and said they couldn't imagine how the Pyramids
were built in the first place.
Bottom line: we
couldn't do this today if we tried !
MASTERS OF ARCHITECTURE
Many stones measure as
big as a medium-sized house and weigh in at many tons. At over 50 stories,
one is tempted to believe the legends that say how the blocks were
actually "floated into place." In order to move stones so large, it would
take a special type of crane. Currently, only three like it exist in the
whole world and they are the latest in modern technology. These special
wonders of 20th Century construction would also have to be transported in
special ships, with large manned crews for the land journey. The whole
process could take many weeks. Suddenly, the slave theory doesn't seem
quite so likely although many attempts have been made to prove it, with
But even if you could
move the giant blocks, actually placing them is another issue.
The precision with which these prehistoric monuments were constructed
rivals any modern building. Except for some of the more weathered outer
stones, the joints are so perfect, you couldn't even fit a piece of paper
between them. This stunning feature is prevalent throughout all three of
the Giza Pyramids.
Other stunning examples
of this type of architecture, though varying in style somewhat, are found
in many other ancient sites throughout the world, and in some cases (like
Egypt) alongside more primitive examples dating centuries
before and after the more continuities perfections. These many monuments
worldwide have survived what now seems to be many thousands of years of
earthquakes, floods and other natural disasters because of the structural
integrity of the blocks' fit and placement. Also, after placement, they
were secured by pouring molten steel into grooves cut into neighbouring
blocks thousands of years before Man was supposed to have possessed such
The stones are kept
firmly in place by metal "I-Bars" that were made by pouring the molten
metal into grooves carved out into the adjacent blocks once they had been
placed exactly where they were to remain for all time. This technique is
also found in the best of ancient architecture throughout the world. Iin
pyramids and other "ruins," though a better word might be simply
"abandoned," because they're still in excellent shape considering their
immense age. Even the accepted construction dates are well before Man is
supposed to have learned to forge metal.
A TECHNOLOGICAL SOCIETY;
PRECISION AND PERFECTION AS A WAY OF LIFE
The more you look at it,
the more you see the pure genius. Whoever built these things didn't do
anything by accident !
Great Pyramid of Giza (the largest and northern-most pyramid), is actually a pretty
good model of Earth's Northern Hemisphere at a ratio of exactly 1 : 43,200
which is a very round number ( 600 x 72 ), ( 480 x 90 ), ( 360 x 120 ), (
300 x 144 ), ( 240 x 180 ), etc. It is aligned to the "Cardinal Points"
(North, South, East and West) much more accurately than even modern man is
barely capable of today, The Royal Observatory in Greenwich, England is
off by nearly 9 Minutes.
WHISPERING TO THE WORTHY
The builders of the Giza
Pyramids may be trying to tell us something. It's Northern face is
positioned on the 30th Parallel, (30° North Latitude). But not exactly
(it's off just a hair). Whoever built them adjusted for the refraction of
starlight through the Earth's atmosphere !
The whole Giza site,
besides being precisely aligned to the cardinal points, speaks of a
specific era in our planet's history, the Age of Leo (circa 10500 BC)
when the three main pyramids lined up with Orion's belt, the milky way
lined up with the Nile, and the Sphinx faced the constellation of Leo on
the eastern horizon, exactly as they appeared in the sky only in that era. Our society, such as it
is, is barely advanced enough to discover even the first riddles cleverly
encoded within the Giza Complex. The calculations involved in the layout
of Giza and it's monuments are so precise that they are a challenge for
modern man to yet fully appreciate. For example, if you take the
circumference of the Great Pyramid, (the sum of it's sides) and divide it
by it's height, the quotient is Pi (3.14), which is the ultimate in round numbers
When an earthquake
nearly destroyed Giza circa 1500 BC (due to a huge volcanic eruption that
completely obliterated the Greek island of Santorini), residents of lower
Egypt raided the facing stones of the Giza Pyramids to rebuild their
houses thereby exposing the massive "convenience store size" blocks that
were used to construct the timeless monuments. Imagine their amazement at
this discovery. Surely only the Gods could have built anything using such
massive stones. But what if the legends were true, that the blocks that
make up the Giza Pyramids were actually "floated into place" ?
THE GREAT PYRAMID
for a moment, that you're a King and that you're revered as a living God
by your people. Upon your death, you want to be remembered forever and
ever. Naturally, the first thing that comes to mind is a gigantic
tombstone. Your religion states that in order for you to even have a
chance at paradise, you must be embalmed in a specific manner, so that
your soul can make the journey. But really, how could such a religion
evolve ? They must have gotten inspiration from somewhere. The truth is
that the Egyptians of the pre bronze age era could not possibly have
hacked out such huge blocks of stone, transported them the many miles
distance from their quarries, and placed them ever so precisely, several
stories high, up miles of ramps, even if it was for the ultimate
immortality of their benevolent God King !
The cycle of our night
sky perspective clockwork wheel of time in the sky for all the ages of
earth, but only an advanced society would need or understand such things !
Studying the Stars
Many ancient cultures
knew things that we ourselves are just discovering about astronomy.
Something very important and basic, and something only an advanced, long
lived, civilization could have calculated or would ever really need to
There is a
cycle to earth's sky beyond simple seasons and calendars you can count on
your fingers. Still, the ancients carved these complex equations in stone.
Simply put, they knew about the Age of Aquarius long before the moon
approached the 7th House.
Earth's year isn't
exactly what we thought it was, not 365.25 days, but approximately
365.2422 days. Not such a big difference, but it really adds up over time.
Imagine that the solar system is a giant clock and the 12 signs of the
Zodiac are the numbers. Earth's year would be a kind of cosmic second and an
astrological age, like the Age of Aquarius, would be an hour, and
the Sun's orbit in the Galaxy a kind of year.
not only do we have to throw in an extra day every four years to catch up
(leap year), but we have to take back a day every 71.6 years to remain in
sync with the seasons. This one day adds up 30 of them and you're a whole
month off. That happens every 4100 years or so like clockwork. This
"Precession" of time is called an Astrological Age and in each one there's
a different zodiacal sign, (or Ecliptical Constellation), in that exact
place in the sky on a certain day. The stars we see in the sky will not be
exactly where we left them in the years to come. Besides changing from day
to day and year to year, they move from Eon to Eon. Or rather, our
perspective changes, like the hands on a clock looking around the room
THE DAWNING OF A NEW AGE
Currently, we are in the
Age of Pisces (the Fish), moving into the Age of Aquarius (the water
bearer). In the time of the Egyptians, it was the Age of Taurus (the
Bull). That's why you see a lot of Bull's heads on artefacts from those
Millennia, when the sun came up in the spring, the surrounding stars drew
a pair of horns, like on a bull. It was important to them navigationally,
seasonally, agriculturally, and therefore spiritually. This cycle
eventually goes right back around to where it started in approximately
Today, the North Star is
Polaris. This star in Ursa Minor (the Little Bear, or Little Dipper) marks
the north celestial pole. 5000 years ago, Thuban (in Draco, the Dragon)
held this honour. All of these celestial changes occur because the Earth's
axis spins with us around the sun, and every year the constellations
change their positions in the sky slightly. 10,000 years from now it will
be Vega. That is, as long as the Earth's axis, or tilt, remains the same.
Bauval, co-author of the Orion Mystery, was sitting around a campfire one
night, with a Giza guide who pointed out Orion's Belt and how they form a
not quite straight line. They then made the most astounding connection;
they look just like a bird's eye view of the three Giza Pyramids that they
were camped out beside. Further investigation showed that the stars are
indeed an exact match, but not in direction or alignment. Because they
knew about precession, they wound the clock back further and further on
the computer until the stars matched, and happened to find many other
coincidental alignments. Among them, the Milky Way to the Nile and the
Sphinx to the constellation Leo (the Lion). But perhaps the most telling
of all, is when this turns out to be, the Age of Leo (circa 10,500 BC).
And 12,000 odd years is well within the new highly controversial
estimations for the age of the Sphinx (see below).
GODS OF THE STARS !
picture at the right, is pretty much how the night sky appeared, facing south, between 12,000
and 13,000 years ago. Notice how as Orion's belt matches precisely the
alignment of the pyramids, the milky way lines up exactly with the river
The ancient Egyptians
recognized this pattern match, and attempted to recreate heaven right here
on earth by building pyramids of their own (though somewhat more
primitive), corresponding to the positions of the stars shown here
denoting Osiris' left shoulder and right knee. But what would be more
intriguing to discover, is something special (of equally impressive
design), buried beneath the sands of time, in the exact location of the
two brightest stars in this constellation, red super giant Betelgeuse (310
ly away) and blue super giant Rigel (910 ly away) !
Taking into account the
alignments of the Sphinx to the constellation of Leo in this era,
the builders of Giza seem to be using the site to tell time with the sky,
on a scale of many millennia. Besides, Orion looks more like an Hourglass
than some guy with a big stick, even if he is a God !
EARTH ~ A COSMIC
The bright star to the
left of Orion, Sirius, is the brightest star in our sky. It is very close to us at only
8.7 light years (right next door, as stars tend to go). In Egyptian
mythology it is known as Isis, and represents the Goddess of the same name
(consort to Osiris, whom we know as the Constellation Orion). Could this
neighbouring star be the origin of this Pantheon of "Mighty Gods" of
legendary deeds or is it just their major outpost in this sector of space ?
Such people, in
possession of technologies advanced enough to travel the vast distances
between stars, would surely have the skill and talent to create buildings
and monuments of such magnificence. In
the year 10,500 BC, Egypt was one of the most fertile landscapes on earth
and a perfect place to camp. With comparable terrain and climate to the
present day American southeast, the area of the Nile delta was a veritable
temperate paradise. A stone's throw from the Mediterranean sea, this
ancient city had easy access to earth's oceans and thus the rest of the
Ancient boats, that were
found buried in the sand, are of a specific design that passed all modern
scientific tests of seaworthiness with flying colours ~ surely capable of
navigating a major deluge ~ perhaps an heirloom of a seafaring culture,
like Atlantis! Similar reed boats are still handcrafted to this very day
on Lake Titicaca, in the mountains of Peru, where the ruins of many
ancient Mayan cities bear the same telltale "massive, minimalist
architecture" and design signatures as is found only in the Giza Pyramids
and certain other inscriptionless "temples" ~ some discovered only this
century, buried under 50 feet of sand !
It's not that much of a stretch
of our modern imaginations to assume that the slight variations from sheer
utter perfection were absorbed by the cosmetic faced, long since pillaged
~ now scattered throughout the world ! That is to say ~ if these monuments
stray from perfection slightly in some areas, how perfect were they
several thousand years ago, before they were vandalized ?
