Mexico’s Amazing Pyramid

BY FRANK JOSEPH

“There are in Mexico the ruins of a prehistoric sacred city (Teotihuacan) which apparently in that country had the significance that Mecca possesses for Moslems, or Lourdes for Catholics.”—Mid-20th Century Atlantologist, Alexander Braghine Thirty three miles north of Mexico City lies the grandest archaeological zone on the continent, Teotihuacan. At the zenith of its power, believed to be about fourteen centuries ago, the ancient megalopolis may have embraced as many as 300,000 inhabitants, who dominated Middle America to a greater extent than any people before…

India’s Mystic Military

BY JOHN KETTLER

The Chinese invaded Tibet, and the Dalai Lama fled. This much many people know. Fewer know, though, of the sys­tematic, ongoing ravaging and suppression of Tibetan culture, institutions, monuments, writings, and above all, the people themselves, who have been made strangers and subhumans in their own land, deliberately dispossessed by waves of Chinese immigrants brought in to Sinize Tibet. And the Tibetan monks have been the direct and particular targets of Chinese repression, for it is they who iconify the essence of the Tibetan culture,…

New Robot to Explore Strange Passages in the Great Pyramid The days of robotically exploring the interior chambers of the Great Pyramid at Giza are not over. In fact, a team from Leeds University in England, under the supervision of Egyptian Antiquities Director Zahi Hawass, will attempt to go where no one has gone before, at least since the days the ancient structure was built. At issue are so-called shafts sloping upward from the north and south walls of the Queens chamber which appear to…

THE GIZA TEMPLATE Researcher Unlocks Advanced Geometric Secrets in the Ancient Site Pennsylvania woodcarver Ed Nightingale is raising some eyebrows in alternative Egyptology circles. His elegant geo­metric solution to the complete layout of the Giza Plateau is revealing a level of sophistication for the ancient build­ers long suspected but unproven, at least as far as mainstream archaeology is concerned. Nightingale shows how har­monically related circles with a ratio of 4 to 3 to 2 precisely convey the layout of the vast arrangement and its nine…

2012 Opening for Pyramid’s Secret Doors Anticipated The question as to what’s behind the Great Pyramid’s secret doors could be finally answered in 2012, but, for now at least, the mystery and the controversy remain. While some, like Zahi Hawass, the flamboyant former leader of Egypt’s Supreme Council of Antiquities, have announced that they expect to find a mummy, others, like engineer Christopher Dunn, expect to find the remains of ancient electrical technology (see “The Pyramid Electric,” A.R. #90). After many delays, including those caused…

ANOTHER ROBOT TO EXPLORE PYRAMID SHAFT If all goes as planned, sometime in February a small mechanical robot armed a with a new drill and a new camera will climb the narrow shafts from the Queens chamber of the Great Pyramid of Giza in Egypt. This latest robotic venture is designed to go beyond the barrier which stopped its predecessor in 2002. On that occasion, as a worldwide televi­sion audience watched, the robot camera penetrated one wall only to be thwarted by another. According to…

The Stones of the Ancients

BY WILLIAM B. STOECKER

A number of writers and researchers have suspected for years that the Great Pyramid at Giza and other ancient struc­tures around the world may actually be machines, representing a technology so foreign to our own that most people do not recognize it. The Great Pyramid is constructed with uncanny precision and has ascending and descending pas­sages, a bizarrely shaped “Grand Gallery,” a “King’s Chamber” containing a “sarcophagus” with no body, and a “Queen’s Chamber.” At least four shafts lead from the chambers, and engineer Rudolf…

Atlantis & The Great Pyramid

BY FRANK JOSEPH

The foreign tourists aboard our bus were worried because one of its headlights was out and the other flickered uncer­tainly. Combined with our driver’s kamikaze-like recklessness in maneuvering through the densely packed night­time streets over-crowded with cars, mules, carts, pedestrians and other careening buses, some catastrophic mishap seemed inevitable. But we were unaware that the free-for-all traffic patterns of modern Cairo represented standard driving practices in the United Arab Republic. All of us wanted to see the Great Pyramid after dark, under the moon and…

Technology & the Hieroglyphs

BY DR. ARLAN ANDREWS, SR. PE

Like something from a graffiti artist’s tagging dream, Egyptian hieroglyphics, paintings, and bas-relief pictorial carvings cover almost every square inch of the remaining ancient temples and tombs in that country. The Ancient Egyptian style of décor apparently was to leave no wall or ceiling area untouched, as if they were commanded to fill all available space. For many centuries these markings and pictures were assumed to be some kind of unknowable magical symbology. But when Napoleon invaded Egypt in 1799, he brought along dozens of…
