4. modern theories

There is no shortage in supply of modern theories about who built the pyramids and why. However, among the cacophony of competing independent researchers, there are common threads that inter-connect many of their stories. We will be examining all these "common threads," both the "mainstream" and "fringe" of this fabric. It is important, in doing so, to remember that many modern "Mayanologists" are shams now as much as were certain French "Egyptianists" (as opposed to "Egyptologists") following the return of Napoleon's Army from the Battle of the Pyramids mentioned here in the introduction. These "quack" and "sham" or "bogus" and "phony" scientists pass off "pseudo-science" as their research in a field they have little more experience with than their own drug-induced delusions. Claiming to be modern "Shaman," in direct descent to 7 "secret chiefs," they fly into "trances" and "channel" spiritism, alike in a seance, in the Meditation Room of the United Nations headquarters buildings in downtown Manhattan, NY, NY. So, to conduct a thorough examination, let us deal with both the most likely theories, as well as those less likely, but more popularly known, both collectively.

4A. theories for their design

Modern Egyptological academia purports that pyramids served as complex tombs, and seem to discount their role in mass ritual magic ceremonies dealing with the entombed Pharaoh's transmigration into an afterlife as only a soul without a body. However, either way, as meant to be permanent tombs, or as merely temporary ceremonial centers for preparing the corpse to be entombed elsewhere, the Egyptian pyramids of Giza served a purpose that revolved around mankind's morbid philosophical fixation with his own mortality. To a purist, it might seem like mixing the "sacred" with the "profane" to combine ritual death ceremonies with architecture symbolizing their most-high concepts of holy ideals. However, from the point of view of the ritualists themselves, such would make more intuitive sense in the context of the metempsychosis "passion play" being acted out by the priest-craft as they inter the mummy. The "soul," called in Egyptian the "Ba" meaning "energy double" or "duplicate," was believed to escape via the air-shafts cut as passage-ways at odd angles through the shear limestone. The alignments of these air-shafts in the King's Chamber room of the Khufu Pyramid of Giza are well documented as aligning with certain stars at only certain times. For example, the air-shafts from the eastern wall of the King's Chamber align to Alnitak and to Sirius respectively, but only 4,350 years ago. Now they do not. Again, this is due to precession and the gradual slipping of the earth's apparent position in its orbit relative to the celestial globe surrounding us in the sky.

4A1. preserving sacred ratios

Obviously of utmost importance to them, even more important in their design and construction than the ritual ceremonies acted out using them, the role of preserving sacred ratios played a primary part in the function of the erection of these enormous megalithic structures. The role of measuring stellar alignments (astro-archaeology) played by the henges and menhirs of Europe and north Asia cannot be disputed, and likewise neither can the more advanced alignments of the complex, the Sphynx statue, and the air-shafts within the great Pyramid of Giza. If stonehenge in England is meant as a calendar, then Giza in Egypt is meant as a library to store the same format of data. The ratios seemingly most important in the layout and design of the pyramids are those of "phi" (the "fibonacci" or "Golden mean" ratio of 1:2 / 3rds) and "pi" (anciently reckoned as 22/7). Pi is used in the proportions of the standing structures individually, and phi is used in their arrangement relative to one another. Hence, "phi" and "pi" are the most important ratios contained within the "memory" of the pyramids' stones. Other ratios included however should be considered no less integral, particularly those revolving around whole numbers such as the pyramid's measurements in Egyptian royal cubits.

4A2. use in death-based rituals

We can, forsaking all but the most basic education on the subject matter, still assert that the pyramids were originally erected for funerary purposes, and that they are symbols of death. Much like the crucifix for Christians, the pyramids were a symbol to the ancient mind of its own mortal end. The "Abyss" of "Nuit," the "night-sky" Goddess of Egypt, posed the challenge of necessarily dying from one's body to "cross the River Styx" and enter the "Underworld" gallery of other souls. This theory holds additional weight considering the alignments of the air-shafts being timed to align with the stars Alnitak and Sirius exactly 4,350 years ago (forming a temporary "window" when alignments occur and late re-occur). That it may have been used as such, I have no doubts. However, the questions remain, if so, how and why? Obviously the "grand gallery" connecting the "King's Chamber" to the central core "Queen's Chamber" could be thought of to symbolize the Am Duat (the Egyptian equivalent of the "Milky Way" based Greek River Styx), but whose idea was this originally? Was it intentional on the part of the initial concept's designer, or did it grow and adapt later as the architectural "pyramid-building" culture grew, changed and spread? To these questions, a merely basic education on the subject can shed no light, and so, to delve deeper, we must learn more.

4A3. further "speculations"

To dispense with the origin myth of the first "Step Pyramid" for King Djoser built at Saqqara, near Thebes in north-western Egypt, along the River Nile, and designed by the king's vizier, ImHotep, we can posit that ImHotep was alike Thoth, living in or around the same time as he did to Pharaoh Unas, Queen Isesi and Prince-King Teti, who comprised the founding characters of the Ennead of Heliopolis, along with Set-Typhon. In the Ennead the God "Atum" was the name of the chief deity, but this was later changed, first to Monthu in the Middle Kingdom, and later to Amen or Amoun by the New Kingdom. Around 3336 to 3334 years ago, Amenhotep 4th, meaning "Amen is Satisfied," changed his regnal nomenclature to "Akhenaten" and instituted solar monotheism, transporting the Egyptian capitol city from the Temple at Karnak in Thebes to the far southern city Amarna, and replacing "Amoun," again, with "Aten," the solar disc of the Sun God "Ra." Had the "democratization of the afterlife" of the Second Intermediate Period, between the Middle and New Kingdoms some 3650 to 3550 years ago) been avoided, the Ennead of Heliopolis of the Old Kingdom would not have allowed in Osiris, Isis, Horus and Set, and would have remained comprised of only Atum (the self-created, "benben" seated) above "Nu" (the "combined waters"), Shu (God of wind or air) and Tefnut (Goddess of salt waters) and the grand-children of Atum, Geb (serpent-headed God over the soil's fertility) and Nuit (the night sky or cosmos Goddess). Over time, as Atum became re-named Monthu, then Amoun, and finally Aten-Ra, his concept became more associated with the attributes of the sun itself, and so he was sometimes affiliated also with the deity Khephri as the eastern rising sun coupled with Atum as the western setting sun. Khephri-Atum was thus a prototype from Egypt of the later Coptic-Gnostic concept of Lucifer, named "Shaher-Shalem" meaning "hello-goodbye," and recited about as such by Jesus quoting Isaiah, comparing the "morning star" (the planet Venus is commonly associated to this concept) to a "fiery serpent" or "Seraph" (a comet) that falls from the sky (as a meteorite). Thus, there is the "democratization of the afterlife" that allowed in to the Heliopolis cult of Atum the "new generation" of Gods, based on living Pharaohs of the fourth and fifth dynasty, that ultimately resulted in confusing the cult of the Ennead at Heliopolis with the concept of monotheism under Atum-Ra.

4A3A. balancing the earth's crust on pivot points

One possible theory regarding the alignment of these massive piles of debris is that their weight and density effect the gravitational stability of the planet itself. Although this seems unlikely, it has been posited as a theory and should not be discounted as possibly among the tool-kit of persuasion used to pitch this concept by vizier Hemon to Pharaoh Khufu. Who knows the dreams of a wizard when tempted by the promise of unlimited funding for a such a massive "public works program?" However, there is little real validity to this claim besides the so-called "esoteric energies" photographed around glass-pyramid shaped models using Krillian (aura) photography. Supposedly, this type of photograph captures one's electro-magnetic field, and amplifies it photoscopically such that it can be not only viewed in colors dependent on mood, but seen to take the form of a field of arcing sparks surrounding all living tissue, both animal and plant-cells alike. Even metals to some lesser extent exert some capacitance or resistance to this "etheric" current, and can be seen to mimic this auric glow of the living when electrified with direct current. In the case of glass pyramids serving as containers for various items and then "aura" photographed using Krillian photography, there appear uncannily regularized logarithmic spirals emanating upward from the pyramids' top. This modernly so-called "pyramid power" is well catalogued, but not at all understood. Couple this with Krillian photographs showing the extreme electromagnetic amplification of small rocks and pebbles recovered from the Giza plateau Necropolis complex, and the result is "new age hysteria" about "alien technologies" being harnessed in the designs of this simple 1/2 octahedron shape. Understanding the concept of "pivot points" as necessary for the moving of the extremely large and heavy limestone cubes that comprise the pyramids into place, it could have been an early intention to position monuments at certain places around the globe as an artificial "gyroscopic stabilization" device. This does not mean to lend credence to this being definitely the case, however, either.

4A3B. harnessing earth's EM-field like antennae

There is too much web buzz these days about "ionospheric heating devices" with too little awareness among the general public about how they work (and thus why they should not be used). The Eastlund Patents, ostensibly authorizing the militarization of such projects, were merely following in Tesla's wake, and foresaw an opportunity that was then exploited by the nefarious "black budget" Shadow Government - the military-banking-intel/media complex. The premise of Tesla tech can be dangerous for amateur engineers, but no less so than the precautions taken regarding Direct Current by Edison. The premise of the Eastlund Patents was to use a global grid of "ionospheric heating" antennae arrays and establish an "ionospheric shield" around earth. This process has begun in the form of the signals sent and relayed back to HAARP in Alaska.

However, if erect metal antennae are "ionospheric heaters," could the stone megaliths in turn act as "ionospheric coolers?" Are these inventions truly part of the same global "climate control" system, established by the ancients and maintained by the United States' Army's Department of Defense (the USA DOD)? This goes to the "ancient aliens" concept of "fringe" and "pseudo-science," but we cannot discard it as being popular simply because it is not exactly accurately factual truth. There remains the possibility that there are forces at work now behind the scenes of our daily existence that we remain unaware of for a very good reason.

4A3C. synching of "alignment windows" for optimum warping

One such circumstance presents itself in the argument of space travel versus time-travel. Many argue time-travel as stationary, and space-travel as motive through the void outside earth's atmosphere. Thus, a "time-tunnel" in one location in space can connect to the same location in space at an earlier time. This is about the essence of all time-travel modern researchers delve into, because beyond this paradoxes abound. Of course, we find these arising in the natural universe constantly regardless, and being cancelled out in rapid succession, as paradoxes are, indeed, self-correlating, self-regulating and ultimately self-terminating. However, beyond the theories, there remains some hope for a glimmer of fact. If space and time ARE indeed relative, there arises at least the probability that what we look out and see in the void of space beyond earth's atmosphere are simply other, parallel versions of our own planetary-solar system, merely appearing abandoned due to a distortion on the perceptual sense of time. If we see a planet that is 100 million light years away, and see on photons arriving to our location now that it is uninhabited, but that it could one-day foreseeably support life, it is likely enough that, during the 100 million years it took that light we see the planet by to travel to us from it, the planet at its actual location in present space-time has evolved into a much different form than we are seeing it now, and it might even have already developed sentient life that is, in turn, looking back at us. If the ancients reasoned at all alike this, they could have easily used such thinking to forward the project of pyramid-building. The alignments of the air-shafts from the King's Chamber to the stars Alnitak and Sirius corresponding to around the professed date of the pyramids' foundations further seems to indicate such thought processes were not "alien" to the Pharaohs and Viziers of the ancient Egyptian Empire.

4B. most likely theories for their construction

Having dispensed with two simple truths (their construction according to sacred ratios and their use in funerary rites) and two complex theories (their use in stabilizing earth's rotational velocity and pitch as well stabilizing its climatological atmosphere) let us set the "ancient aliens" theory aside for a moment and examine the evidence at hand with the intent to ask if it could have been done by humans on earth without alien interference or help. The most likely scenarios for the construction of the pyramid complexes throughout the ancient and modern eras are fairly commonplace engineering tricks, however remain unknown and mysterious to non-engineers. For example, simply dropping a plum-line to establish gravitational vertical and perpendicular thereto is a long moralized over "secret" of the "secret society" Free and Accepted Masonry. The "tools of the Masons' craft" comprise the moral working tools in speculative craft masonry, and each tool for architecturally cutting, hewing and rendering stone is assigned a moral meaning. At the time of the building of the Second Temple in Jerusalem, Israel, for example, around the life-time of Jesus and the turn of the last Solar Aeon prior to now, the "secret society" we call today "F&AM" were called then the "Nazorenes" and were the working sect of the Essenes, who were trained to the level of medical doctors. The group of Masons working on the Great Pyramid of Khufu, no less so than those "first Masons" who constructed the first temple on Mt. Zion under King Solomon, would have had these "working tools" of their craft, and they would have possessed mastery over them the likes of which cannot be duplicated by raw talent and luck. Raising such a class of, as postulated for the size of the work-force on the Khufu Pyramid in the then-incomplete Giza Necropolis, 20,000 craftsmen, artisans and masons, often takes a generation of pre-planning prior to such a project just to inculcate a population with the basic nationalist patriotism necessary to undertake a monumental building project. This might lend evidence to the concept of "Egyptian Masonry" being of a more "speculatively" advanced nature than even the modern form of "F&AM" is aware today.

4B1. concentrated steam used to hew stone

"Brown's Gas," "HHO" called such, is fakery and does deserve to be taken as pseudo-science, however, "H20" in the form of super-heated, condensed water-vapor (steam), does deserve to be taken very seriously. Steam, super-heated and run through a compression nozzle, can render raw limestone as malleable as soft concrete putty. Under the proper conditions, it can sever stones to within a "micron" of measurement with its cutting precision, or under others, it can melt to slag and then allow to re-cool into place molten metal poured in between the limestone casing stones to secure it to its neighbor as "joiner," a hooked latch between them. Steam, if used correctly, can weld stone better than electric arc welders metal and can, if harnessed in large enough amounts, power turbine electrical conversion engines. The use of steam would not have been "alien" either to Masons at the time of the construction work on the Khufu pyramid at the Giza Necropolis, for both quarrying, hewing and exact placement of more or less mortarless stone masonry such as the pyramids are. Perhaps the best example of using simple steam (compressed at high pressure) to "weld stone" is in Machu Pichu, the Incan citadel in the Andes of Peru, where the stones (some of more than 10 tons) appear mortarless joined and fitted together like almost like puzzle pieces. Here we can definitively see the application of steam to "weather" the stones into place; local legends recall that Machu Pichu was built by "melting stones like water." The method of fitting bricks together without mortar is called "ashlar." It was practiced heavily on the island of Crete, at Phaistos and Knossos around 3,700 to 3,650 years ago. Its practice, along with pyramid building in general, might relate to the paranoia of early builders over natural disasters such as the so-called "great deluge" or "world flood."

4B2. pivot blocks and wedges / pulleys to transport

1 Man can rotate a 1 ton ashlar limestone cube with 1 hand using a pivot point beneath the stone's exact center of gravity. Although winches, pulleys, fulcrums, levers, rolling logs as dollies, etc. are sometimes considered "modern technology" by scientists, it seems counter-intuitive to me to believe the Egyptians that raised the Khufu Pyramid were ignorant of the full technological potentials of such rudimentary implements of civil engineering. Not to mention the harnessing of wild beasts, such as elephants, who were much more plentiful in the region at that time than now, could account for some additional torque in towing power if necessary. The only problem with knowing such engineering "trickery" is being tempted to use it for its own sake, just to show off; as with those who use the "stalk-stomper" to render crop-circles as "art for its own sake." When architecture ceases being utilitarian, it ceases to be a humanism and becomes an imposition onto consciousness, a burden, a distraction, a nightmare; such was as Socrates saw in Athenian "proto-nationalist" sculpture movements of his era, and he stated it as such: "modern Athenian art is thrice removed from the kingdom," whereby "kingdom" he referred to the realm of pure ideals.

4B3. exact placement by smelting metal joiners

At locations from Pumapunku in the Tiwanaku, Bolivia Incan ruins to the Roman ruins of Baalbek in the Beqaa Valley of Lebanon there remains evidence of the use of metal "I" shaped, flat-beam "joiners" to connect the hewn ashlars together more stably and serve as a form of connective mortar. The "open secret" of the use of "I" beam joiners becomes more transparent and less opaque when we realize these metals were forged to molten and deposited between the stones to fill into their gaps and, once cooled, simply solidify into the "I" beams inside the pre-cut molds and "smelt stone." Although the "ashlar" methods are nakedly obvious from the ruins, the method itself remains more or less an "open secret" of modern Masonry. In short, there is no shortage in supply of speculations.

5. unanswered questions

Now, even knowing that steam, fulcrums and elephants all could have additionally been employed in the construction process, and knowing that the designs were rudimentarily meant as a library of sacred ratios preserved in stone by a death worshiping priest-class, and speculating moreover that there could be further uses for the pyramids intended by their original designers than we now know, there yet remain many unanswered questions still to sort through. Some of these include: the specific size of a workforce needed to quarry, hew, transport and affix into place the 2,500,000 limestone cubes of which the Great Pyramid of Khufu is formed; the original intentions of the designers versus the ultimate political outcomes to result from their contributions; the question of the catacombs and supposed "cave complex" beneath the Giza plateau; and of course the question of what myths (both ancient and modern) have to say about how the Khufu pyramid was built and why. Allow me to address each of these in the following manner:

5A. size of work-force necessary

The numbers (given or implied) in Herodotus are around 20,000 men working for around 20 years. This is, of course, prima facie impossible. The workforce would diminish gradually, and inevitably need to be replenished. There would be no incentive for new workers if their last employees died on the job, and morale would diminish, making the job last longer or even never end at all. Eventually workers would revolt, form labor unions and demand higher wages as the project approached apparent completion. If their demands could not be met, the project could not be finished. However, the pyramids were finished, all of them, and splendidly. We have not one story of a "Spartacus" character leading these supposed slave laborers to their liberty, we have not one tail of a "Frederic Douglas" type who became emancipated and railed against the institution of pyramid craftsmanship for its inhumane work ethics, we have not one "Benedict Arnold" or "Judas" on the whole project's history. Although such is not the case in the myths of the Builders themselves, who recall Enoch being murdered by Tubal Cain with Jabal and Jubal, who recall Hiram Abiff being murdered by Menelik, Jubelo, Jubela and Jubelum, and who recall the fated assassination of Julius Caesar for crossing the Rubicon and stationing his troops within Rome, setting into motion the events that would result in his being laureled as "Imperator for life. "The mistake of those who would be Builders has always been to lower their guard at a crucial moment, only to be betrayed by their apparent colleagues, peers and friends. However, what of ImHotep or Vizier Hemon, his successor? Was the prototype of the God Thoth murdered while constructing the pyramid of Osiris?  This may explain the lack of any mummified remains to be found of ImHotep thus far. However, those of Akhenaten remain at large as well, which only raises more questions about the events during his life, contemporary to the Exodus of Moses.

5B. original intentions vs. ultimate uses

If we cannot know the composition of the work-force, we should at least try to figure out the original intentions for the device and put it to its ultimate use or see it dismantled according to the original inventor of the concept. In this case, again, we return to the connection between Daedalus, Hermes, Thoth and ImHotep. Beyond vague traces and connections made between these in mythologies of the ancient world, we know nothing in reality about the person who invented the "Pyramid." If, as Daedalus or as Ziasudra or as Utnapishtim, one man were to have escaped the sinking of the city of Olus off the isle of Crete, he could have made his way (via Ur) to Egypt, and established himself there as vizier to a king. His strong opinions on fortifications of ashlar architecture against natural disasters would not fall on deaf ears with any king sensitive to the needs of their citizens' economy.

5C. are reasons given in mythology trustworthy?

Can you judge a book by its cover? Can you be trusted with a book to judge it? How far can you trust any author? How far can you really trust yourself? These sort of questions might even unnerve the average "western civilized" intellect, because they are the sort we do not often ask ourselves, unlike our brethren in the ancient Egyptian Empire, who dwelt upon the topic of their own demise daily in the form of their work on the Giza Necropolis. If you prefer to believe in popular fables rather than simple scientific facts, it is your choice to make and I will not censor your options in this regard. As I have explained already the most likely scenarios surrounding the pyramids' original intentions and methods of construction, so far as I am now aware, I will next provide you with some of the more well-known, but less likely events to explain how the Pyramids occur.

5C1. the accounts in modern popular myths

To subscribe to an old religion seems foolish at best, and to subscribe to a new one even exponentially so. So, let us dispense with the pleasantries of religiosity and its banter, and having chewed away the fodder dig into the meat of this philosophical debate now. Many are online now who have their own beliefs, and that's fine. It's okay to believe differently than anyone and everyone else, it's okay to be unique. But the problem comes when people evangelize and preach this belief (or any belief) with such fervor and gusto that it demotivates the resistance of their victim, eventually causing cults to form, and to gradually approach metastasis moment when they spontaneously flourish and blossom into a new major world religion. One can no more renounce religion than one could hope to escape the wrath of an all-knowing God, because regardless of one's belief about God, one has awareness of the concept of God almost from the moment of birth. One cannot escape having some opinion on this subject, one way or another, and therein lies the difficulty. The "God concept" is self-destructive; it contains within it the germinating seed of the suicidal "demiUrge," the universal devil, Ialdabaoth, the anti-God. However, if God has even 1 emotion, it is contradictory to the "unchanging" clause of our Covenant with Him, which stipulates that "there is one most high, all making, unmade, all moving, unmoved prima causae." How can He be both "unchanging" and be able to experience even 1 different change in emotion? Yet we are told, God is sometimes Loving kindness, a forgiving smile and a helping hand, and at other times God is Wrathful vengeance, a sword to smite and a fist to crush His enemies. It seems very contradictory to the logical faculty mankind has been given "free will" to develop. And if there is no soluble answer to the "question of God's existence or non-existence," and the monotheist idea is so old, how then can there be any hope of finding any logical facts at all in modern popular mythologies of "new" or "young" religious cults?

5C1A. the account of predeluvial giants in Theosophy

According to HP Blavatsky (Helena Petrovna Gan of Russia, France and the US) the construction of the pyramids "must have been over 31,000 years (31,105) ago" (The Secret Doctrine volume 1: Cosmogenesis, page 435). In "Century Path: a magazine devoted to the Brotherhood of Humanity, the Promulgation of Theosophy and the Study of Ancient and Modern Ethics, Philosophy, Science, and Art," Volume 13, part 2, page 42, an enthusiastic review signed only "Student" reads: "The Great Pyramid with its manifold astronomical hints, was almost certainly built not less than about 78,000 years ago" (following with a citation to Secret Doctrine volume 2: Anthropogenesis, page 47). From Century Path, volume 12, part 1, page 28: "These gigantic monuments were set up by giants, of whose existence in prehistoric times there is ample testimony everywhere. Even many of the perched blocks and rocking stones, attributed by geologists to the work of nature, are stated by H.P. Blavatsky in the Secret Doctrine to have been set up by giants." Again, the signature allowed is only "Student." Blavatsky herself was a spiritist movement activist and held seances complete with trap-doors, props and piped in sound-effects. Her cult of "Theosophy" gained the support of certain prominent Free Masons of her time, namely Charles Leadbeater, and when his wife, Annie Bessant, died, her estate founded the Lucis Trust that still brokers the bills and "cooks the books" for the UN's Security Council to this day. That is why self-professing "Theosophists" are allowed to practice their "trance-channeling" sessions in the "Meditation Room" at UN HQ in NY, NY. Nevertheless, despite employing "ghost writers" for the bulk of her published material, Blavatksy merely regurgitated the research done by others and used it to support her broad and sweeping generalizations based solely on her knowledge of ancient mythologies.

5C1B. the account of Marduk's imprisonment by Sitchin

In the magnum opus of his long career writing about the Sumerian cylinder-seal translations he was working on, finally, in 1999, renowned Sumerologist and ancient-alien enthusiast Zecharia Sitchin finally published his complete translation of the Sumerian cylinder seals as the "Lost Book of Enki." According to Sitchin's own chronology of events, some 5,450 years ago Marduk-Ra, the patron God of Babylon, was temporarily imprisoned in the Great Pyramid of Giza, but was freed through an emergency shaft. This description of events immediately follows what Sitchin dubs the "Tower of Babel incident." This dates the pyramids as having already been built at a time just following the so-called "world flood" or "great deluge" described in the literature of the region as having occurred at that time. Sitchin's timeline puts the deluge event as having occurred 13,000 years ago, however, interpolates an additional 7,000 years of history while the pre-Sumerian "Annunaki" pantheon supposedly ran the planet earth as their slave-pool and play-pen. Most biblical scholars date the event of the flood to around no sooner than 6,000 years ago. Quite simply, although it may be an authentically pre-existent basis for the stories of pre-Biblical-era events in the Levant region, there remain too many plot-holes in the translation to accept it as 100% valid without question. Again, we are looking at a modern, popular myth, but nevertheless, it's a myth, and myths are never 100% of the truth, 100% of the time.

5C1C. modern UFO / "Ascended Masters" beliefs

Edgar Cayce, the "sleeping prophet," predicted that "A portion of the temples may yet be discovered under the slime of ages and sea water near Bimini…Expect it in ’68 or ’69 — not so far away." prior to the discovery there (in 1968) of the now famous geoglyph of the partially submerged "road" or "wall" formation. Cayce claimed to do psychic "past life regression" psychology on both himself and others, and spread his concepts that Atlantis was located near the modern Bermuda Triangle, and that it was sunk in a final catastrophic event 12,000 years ago. When his prediction about Bimini proved accurate, Cayce heralded it as the "rising of Atlantis." Obviously, Cayce among the others (being in this case merely Sitchin and Blavatsky) was best aware of the calendar of the aeons and its natural ebb and flow of cause and effect on our global environment and geography.

Alas, however, for even now as I write this there is a ratio of 1 honest healer to every 10 hackneyed cranks. The last 50 years have been rampant with false-prophets, pretend Messiahs and self-proclaimed "second comings" of such and such or so and so. The myth of the "neo-Demiurge" expired on Dec. 21, 2012. There should be no more pretenders to the throne, no further self-styled "reptilians" and no one who supports the "NWO" should be allowed to remain long in their offices of arbitrary social authority.

5C2. the accounts in ancient myths

It seems that earlier in our species' history, during the peak of the last north-hemisphere ice-age, some 12,000 years ago or so, global sea levels were much lower due to the amount of global supply of H2O suspended as glaciers above N. America. The result was that the underground grottos were devoid of their usual water level; in short, the "aquifer" dropped. This led to a resurgence at the time of cavern dwelling, and in almost all historical records, this would have marked the end of the Atlantean era (if there ever was one), and the end of the era of our species cohabitation with our European cousins the neanderthals. The myths of "giants" and "nefilim" could not be more clearly describing our era of cohabitation with the neanderthals until the peak of the last ice age. However, if remains of ruins such as Yonaguni, the ruins off the coast of Guanahacabibes peninsula in the PInar del Rio Province of Cuba, the sunken city of Olus, Crete, etc. prove to be genuinely ancient, pre-ice age era sunken man-made structures, or if they are merely "naturally occurring" but rare geophysical terrestrial features, this remains to be proven definitvely by either camp.

5C2A. "ImHotep" - the Architect's Inscription and the Papyrus of Ani

We in fact know so little about ImHotep in reality it all amounts to only this: the oldest and most often repeated etched tomb-graffiti name from the pre-French Napoleon army's survey of Cairo was "ImHotep" on the majority on tomb site walls. The Papyrus of Ani, or Egyptian "Book of the Dead," having been written around the lifetime of Pharaoh Unas, King Djoser and Vizier ImHotep, may only be incidental, but it bears some further scrutiny nevertheless. The Papyrus of Ani was the New Kingdom era edition of what began in the Old Kingdom as the "Pyramid Texts," and which by the Middle Kingdom was known as the "Coffin Texts," and is a collection of spells used in funerary rituals to assist the deceased soul with guidance through the perils of the afterlife in the underworld until their soul ascends to heaven. This cycle of literature collectively amounts to what we call today the "Egyptian Book of the Dead," to distinguish it from the similar practices of other cultures such as the Tibetan Buddhist "Bardo Thodol," an essentially similarly themed work of literature from a very different geographic location in space and moment in historical time.

5C2B. the Mixtec (Mayan / Aztec / Cherokee) calendar and Pacal Votan

As the role had been for ImHotep regarding the Old to Middle Kingdom updating of the "Egyptian Book of the Dead," so was the mantle in Meso-American Mayan culture passed down to Pakal, the ruler of the polity of Palenque in the Late Classic period of pre-Columbian Meso-American chronology. Pakal lived some approximately 1,495 years ago in the Yucatan peninsula and oversaw the expansion of his capitol city and it may have been around this time the famous observatory there was constructed. The lid of Pakal's sarcophagus inscription depicts him, according to some, beneath the "world tree," receiving the methods of keeping time that would later become the Mayan-Aztec, or Mixtec, and Cherokee calendars. The lid of the sarcophagus was housed, along with Pakal's interred remains, in the Temple of Inscriptions. Just as Moses was by writing the first Torah, Pakal became a scribe of the heavens when he added to the pre-existing Popul Vuh stories of his era the myths of Kukulkan, or Quetzalcoatl, the Meso-American symbolic equivalent to the "return" or "second coming" of Jesus. Kukulkan (based on Viracocha) became the heroic nationalist symbol for all the Meso-American cultures that followed until the invasions of the Conquistadors began. The myth of Kukulkan (also associated with the Hopi tribe's Blue Star Kachina God) is that once there was a benevolent fair-skinned immigrant to S. America named Viracocha. Viracocha and his people were dispersed from the region of Tiwanaku by local tribes. Some fled by sea across the Pacific to Easter Island and became the Rapa Nui culture of Easter Island. Others fled inland and blended in with the Incan civilization to the north-east. This culture began keeping the record of its migrations as the Popul Vuh, and over time it split into the Mayan, Aztec, Mixtec and Cherokee cultures as well. These cultures all preserve a peculiar calendar called the "great cycle" or "tonalamatl," dubbed by the ignorant Conquistadors the "Aztec Century."

5C2C. the global preservation of independent regional flood myths

All around the world, the same event has occurred, only at different eras in history. A terrible tsunami and mega-hurricane that cause an enormous, swift inundation, driving all the people for the highest ground they can find eventually, but ultimately drowning them even there. This event we recall, as though being genetically hard-wired to cringe at thunder, by the terms "the deluge," the "world flood," etc. However, in each of the cases where we find this story most prominently, there are coast-lines and islands where this tradition is preserved the most thoroughly. In no mainly mainland nation-state does the flood myth predominate so heavily as it does along the coast-lines. This is because, at one stage in our species evolution, between some 12,000 and some 6,000 years ago, humanity was predominantly a coastal regional dwelling, sea-faring species. The N. American ice-age was ending and the water-levels were increasing. We might have, at this time, been forced to adapt to a more aquatic life-style because the proto-cities we had begun to build had been sunken by the rising aquifer levels. We were "forced out" of caves as they became more and more submerged underwater, and eventually developed a temporarily global, coastal level of civilization. However, as more ice sheets broke off from above N. America, and the sea levels rose, conditions on the water became less and less navigable. Eventually, extreme flooding forced us to move inland as well as occupying only the beach fronts, and that was when megalithic culture pyramid-building began.

5D. deep underground / underwater caverns and catacombs

Long before the pyramids were conceived of, let alone erected, the ancient fault-lines and fissures in the earth's drier crust as it floats upon its mantle of molten magma around its molten iron core were formed as lava-ducts. In some of these massive underground grottos are vast stores of unknown forms of crystal and mineral, formed only from the superheating under pressure of the indigenous formations of rock type. Many of these crystal caves were submerged below modern sea-level (the so-called "aquifer") and form "underground rivers" along these ancient, now long cooled lava-ducts. In some cases, these fault-lines re-heat at a later time, due to the constant pushing pressure of the shifting tectonic plates, although most of the time these underground rivers function without our ever knowing they are there; at least until one opens a sink-hole directly below us. This would be the exact opposite of the normal "hot" or "cold springs" that well up from deep below ground level from time to time. A sink-hole can appear due to a large cave underground collapsing its ceiling inward from its rooftop. When this occurs, a gigantic hole can simply open up in the ground, seemingly out of nowhere.

5D1. crystal caves and geo-magnetics

As a general rule, crystals are not magnetic. There are some minerals that are, including magnetite and even, to some extent, amber (petrified tree-sap) if exposed to static-electric induction (friction). Likewise there are such things as "ferro-magnetic fluids" comprised of natural chemical elements found in nature that could be formed naturally in and / or around large deposits of their constituent material component chemicals. The possibility for regular iron ore to become ferro-magnetic is about the same as for any other common earth-element metallics and mineral composites.  Occasionally there are sufficient magnetically sensitive metallic alloys or minerals in a rock or soil formation that it causes "remnant magnetism" to occur in that area, causing a stronger, localized electro-magnetic field to over-ride the weaker, global EM-field. The Schumann Resonance frequency, formed from the combined sound of all simultaneously occurring global lightning strikes, is about 40KHz, well within the range of brain-entrainment pitches when audible to the human ear. Some have compared the Schumann Resonance to the "soul" of Gaia herself, our own Mother Nature ideal. The fractures in earth's crust correspond to the pressures applied by the tectonic plates onto one another as they drift slowly behind earth's maximum velocity of combined rotation and orbit. Because there are 7 main continental shelves, the tectonic plates making these land-masses up are the only important ones to know about, causing mountains when they collide and valleys when they depart. From throughout these fault-lines and fissures can rupture forth untold wealth in gems and precious metals.

5D2. underground rivers and "ley-lines"

The art of "water dowsing" is taking a "wishbone" shaped stick, walking in a line, and waiting for it to bow down under its own weight as you hold it outward, watching the stick for it to make its "prediction" about the best location to drill a well and find an underground source of water supply. When the stick bows down, you have found water. Allegedly; the effectiveness rate of "dowsing" is actually incredibly low. However, the random success rate remains relatively high simply due to the preponderance of underground sources of access to deep crustal grottos inside old lava-ducts along tectonic fault-lines and fissures that have since been filled in by the aquifer. There are more caves underground than we know about.

5D3. fault-lines and fissures, dormant and active

Some caves occur along fault-lines or fissures that are dormant, which means very little if anything about their geography to the people lucky enough to be living in those places. Other caves occur along fault-lines or fissures that are active from time to time, and this is never a good spot to settle. Aside from electro-magnetic pressure being able to induce unconscious hallucinatory conditions themselves, and these being caused along fissures and fault-lines where active tectonic crustal pressure is exerting friction, there is a certain "magnetic draw" in some to live in such conditions regardless of how "unsafe" or "insane" it seems to others. Some visit as tourists and then leave, while others feel compelled to live dangerously and experience life in a constant condition of knowing that at any moment the active fissure or fault-line could rupture and spew molten magma above the surface as lava, erupt in a volcano spewing a cloud of ash, and essentially drive you toward the coast by chasing you an inch at a time with a flood of flaming liquid stone. Knowing the loss of life at the Roman Empire's resort city of Pompeii when Mt. Vesuvius erupted about 1,921 years ago I choose to vacation in the safety of what Einstein called the "mental laboratory," i.e. my mind itself. The fact people continue to live on active fissures and fault-lines is as much responsible for the promulgation of the "global flood" myths as is its, literally very real, "electro-magnetic pull" responsible for people, once there, to find it difficult to leave.

5D4. the "death" cult of the "underworld"

There is one last loose-end to tie up, and that is to find out the stance on the pyramids of those tasked to guard and maintain them, the members of the religious death-ritual cults themselves. Since we cannot literally ask any "ancient Egyptians" or even "authentic Mayans," since both of these cultures have long since ceased to persevere in their peak forms, we must resort to asking the modern equivalents to their "speculative craft" builder's guilds at the times when monumental building programs have been commenced and pyramids have been the chosen model.

The primary target cult for questioning should be the "Illuminati," comprised of radical libertine anarchists who are anti-state and anti-church alike, and whose chief symbol is the eye in the triangle (the reverse side of the US great seal). To Illuminati Free Masons at the time, the adoption of this seal by Franklin, whom accepted it while in France, meant one thing - a positive acceptance of and agreement with their goals; however by the time Franklin returned to America, the situation was different, the symbol was transformed from opposed to and against to advocate for and in favor of. The symbol of the "eye in the triangle" was essentially a symbol for anti-Federalists to unite against. It symbolized Pharoahnic dominance of one man's will over another, an issue the Constitution's framers were divided on between the rock of the tyranny of King George of England and the hard-place of managing a population nearly 1/2 of whom were slave-owners.

However, rarely is one found whom is both enlightened transcendentally and a member of the illuminati.

5D4A. the ancient cults today (pre-Catholic)

The various pantheist religions of old have largely dispersed, with only Voodoo, Aboriginal, Hindu, Zoroastrian and Sikh being the primary upholders to this day of a pantheon of deities. The dispersion of world-religious beliefs by population is grossly lop-sided in favor of monotheist religious beliefs and practices. If one were to count Buddhism as a pantheism, the ratio would still be 19.45% to 54.56% respectively, as per the 7 billion or so of the world's total present population today, if put "head to head" between "pantheists" vs. "monotheists." This ratio is outrageously small, especially considering that Buddhism is not a pantheism, it's barely even really a "religion" in the sense of mass rituals and public morality lessons; I think of Buddhism as more of a "philosophy," as they say nowadays. Insofar as Catholicism's big gripe with Gnostic Christians was that they were "Pantheists" this should come as a vast relief to anyone Catholic. Now you know better: Gnostic Christians are not Pantheists. This of course can't make up for the Crusades, Inquisition, Spanish Conquistadors and Jesuit assassins, but it's a nice start. Good one, Roman Papal Catholic Christians.

In reality, the "pantheist" tradition has only been temporarily submerged and has been forced to go underground to escape total annihilation at the hands of their sworn, mortal enemies the Catholic Papacy, the modern Emperors of Roman Christendom. Those true believers in pantheons are resurgent alike "Atlantis Rising" in this new "Age of Aquarius" and rightly pit against this small minority, equal in numbers and opposite in intent, opposing them arbitrarily. The "monotheist" Pope, always chosen for their closeted "Pantheist" tendencies, has been complicit throughout their succession of those to wear the miter in infiltrating for the purpose of subverting their own monotheist competition, the Protestants. By fostering the Protestants into the hardened Roman Legionnaire's sensibility in favor of the nationalist patriotism necessary to goad the population toward a massive public works campaign or toward war, the Papacy hopes to turn Protestantism against its own moral common-senses, to turn them for the "NWO" bindingly.

5D4B. the more modern cults (post-Masonry)

Free Masonry is, at heart, a Protestant operation. It was founded by the precursors to Martin Luther nailing his 95 Theses to the door of the All Saints Church in Wittenberg, and is maintained by those now whose spirit is already evolved beyond the need for the patriarchal and oppressive Catholic Papacy. The tide, albeit mixed between partially all pantheists and collectively most monotheists against the "Zionist nationalism" cult within the Catholic Papacy has turned. To calculate those same figures, if Catholic Christians are 16.99% and their combined mutual enemies are the remaining 83.01% then there is little concept of open competition in which the majority of such a rank could be expected to lose. There are literally still more "Pantheists" (Buddhists included) than Catholics.

However, this should not shock you: Masonry being predominantly Protestant in its Christian aspects, as opposed to devoutly Catholic, because as you know Masons and the Papacy are sworn enemies. However, it should also be noted that Protestantism takes up only 5.78%, the smallest slice of the figurative "pie" compared to "Pantheists" and "Catholics." Could Aboriginal, Voodoo, Zoroastrian, Hindus and Sikhs (non-Buddhist Pantheists) combine with Protestantism to outnumber Catholicism? The result of such a rebalancing comes to 19.39% (non Buddhist pantheists) to 16.99% (Catholics), which still makes it a tough battle. So long as the remaining "other" 63.62% of the population remain silent on the issues of "Pantheism" vs. "Catholicism," we can begin to enter evidence on the metempsychosis of the soul after the body's physical death.

5D4C. the mythologies maintained in these cults

The mythologies of Catholicism and Free Masonry differ in detail, but not in intent. They are given, taught as lessons, to improve one's moral fortitude. They are not meant to be a moral guilt trip with salvation from the boredom held out over your head for you to dance for like a carrot on a stick held out in front of a mule. The sacraments of the Catechism and the working tools of the craft degrees are no different in their intention to import a set of moral guide-lines for the individual. Although they use the same basic premises, the same basic structural hierarchies for the rank and phylum, etc. Masonry and Papacy are opposed. Why should a priest-class, tasked to maintain the heritage of an architectural edifice, make enemies with the supposed builders of that very edifice? If the Papacy feels the need to control Mt. Zion geo-politically, strategically behind the scenes backing the US DOD and Israeli Mossad, and spiritually, usurping the rightfully empty sepulcher of God by inserting into His place the politics of Rome, then should it not ought first ask permission to do so from the remaining Knights Templar (both the Maltese AND Knights Columbus chapters) let alone Israel's indigenous residents, and beg forgiveness from all the others it has wronged and slain throughout this last aeon? When will the Pope repent?

conclusion - "what remains unknown"

Ultimately, even those who claim that "knowledge is power" are impotent themselves in the face of their own mortality. You can't "know" your way out of death. Knowing something does not give you "power" over someone else for their not knowing it. That is slavery, and can only enslave all who practice it. "Secret societies" are only necessary during times of prevalent deceit. They are not meant to become a power basis. When they do, a monumental public works program or a war will follow, but neither of these will ultimately benefit the people who realize them. All these things we can state with at least some degree of certainty as positive truth.

However, what remains unknown we cannot know at all. We cannot imagine it, we cannot conceive of it, we cannot even assert it exists. This we can say we know, but even saying these things about the unknown limits the unknown in a way counter-intuitive to the spirit of these statements. Thus, we cannot even say we know there IS an unknown, because there just as easily might NOT be, and we are simply imagining that we do not already know everything that CAN be known by us.

In short, it is wisdom to know God, and thus, to know God, all we must do is forget self. If we forget we are ourself, we will remember we are God. Again, this can be asserted as a known and proven method of understanding wisdom and knowing God. However, what does it mean for the self to "Know God?" This is what cannot have only one answer for everyone.

Likewise, when dealing with the pyramid-building cultures of antiquity, there are things we know, and things we don't know, but when we say we "don't know" them, it means we suspect them and might posit them hypothetically, with utmost strident belief even, but that ultimately we accept the fact they might not prove "true." Then, if there is one most elusive concept for our species, it is certainly "quid est veritas." How do we define reality for others, and if we ultimately cannot (or should not), why should we desire to attempt it to start with?

So it comes down to with asking "Why did mankind build the pyramids?" We can know who built them, how they were built, and why the people who built them wanted them built, but we cannot explain to the bricks themselves: "this is the purpose you serve, this is why you were hewn and placed, to exist for this reason, at this moment in time, and to perform this exact function" because we cannot say with any real certainty what that function is. Perhaps, ultimately, there is no function, and they are only exactly what they appear to the eye: a very large pile of very large cube bricks. Perhaps they are just and justly only "art for its own sake."

There are, in solving mysteries, always hunches and clues to guide us. However there are knowns, and known unknowns, and then, beyond this, is the great unknown. To this abyss I leave you now, gentle readers, hoping that I have imparted some small amount of new information to you, and helped inspire you to continue to seek onward along your quest to learn more.

PEACE.
