Giza’s Cosmic Blueprint

BY ANDREW COLLINS

In 1994 Robert Bauval and Adrian Gilbert’s ground-breaking book The Orion Mystery theorized that the Pyramids of Giza reflected the astronomical positions of the three “belt” stars of Orion, a constellation linked with the destination of the king’s spirit in his role as Osiris, the ancient Egyptian god of death and resurrection. It was this unique concept that opened the way to visualizing Giza’s famous pyramid field as constructed as part of some grand cosmological scheme. The OCT (Orion correlation), as it became known, was…

Hidden Agenda?

BY JOHN KETTLER

Going dark,” in espionage parlance, means hiding and ceasing to communicate, as when a spy goes to ground un­til things calm down. To “take it dark” means to remove something from public view, meanwhile clandestinely con­tinuing to operate whatever the asset may be. This can be as simple as moving a suddenly sensitive discussion from an open radio channel to an encrypted one, or the more complicated faking the breakdown of a satellite, or even re­porting its loss, but continuing to clandestinely receive the data….

The Numbers of LOST

BY STEVEN SORA

Not since Star Trek has a television show attracted such a devoted following as Lost. There are scores of websites based on the show itself and even websites centered on aspects of the show. There are books and magazines devoted to Lost and magazine articles on books that have appeared in Lost. The attraction of the show is a strange setting, attractive yet deep and complex characters, and dangerous situa­tions. But from the first episode, the allure is the mystery intertwined with the plot. It…

Linda Goodman & the Secret of the Hollywood Cross

BY PHILIP COPPENS

Some stories are weirder than anything Hollywood screenwriters could dream up. But then, facts are often stranger than fiction. How would you react if you were told that the phallus of the Egyptian god Osiris is possibly located un­derneath a buried pyramid in the very center of Hollywood—Los Angeles? Doesn’t this sound like something from a movie? Well, it isn’t. The site where Osiris’ phallus is supposedly buried is known as the Hollywood Cross, which sits on a small hill next to Interstate 101, at…

The Celestial Art of Keeping Secrets

BY STEVEN SORA

There is little doubt that Freemasonry inherited a body of knowledge from remarkably early times. While masons used such knowledge for practical applications in building cathedrals and bridges, they understood a concept of “As above, so below,” that went far beyond the practical. They were not the only ones. From the most ancient times man believed the heavens ruled the earth. Going against the will of the stars was inviting trouble. As “aster” was the Greek word for star, a dis-aster was the result of…

From Saint to Sun God

BY STEVEN SORA

The party was well underway when the host introduced his daughter to the guests. He asked her to show off her greatest ability, to dance for his guests, but she demurred. He asked again and again, yet his daughter denied him. Fi­nally he promised her anything up to half of his kingdom, and at that she consulted with her mother. Yes, she would dance, but her request was surprising, She asked for the head of a man that her father held in his prison. Her…

Sky-Time

BY SUSAN B. MARTINEZ, Ph.D.

Did you know that earthquakes occur in cycles? Scientists, charting the intensity of seismic upheavals since the 17th century, have come upon “cluster years” marking the most destructive quakes. Regardless of location—China, Italy, western Pacific—there is a definite peak period, every eleven years. Interesting that the earth’s thermosphere also obeys an 11-year rhythm in its variation from 700 degrees C (at low point) to 2000 degrees (at high point). And in the same vein, the great auroras painting the polar skies give their most lavish…

Mystery of the Black Madonna

BY MARK AMARU PINKHAM

Throughout the ages the image of the black madonna has elicited profound veneration, but also intense trepidation and even abhorrence from its observers. While Catholics have sought to denigrate and even to shun the numerous Black Madonnas scattered throughout their own European churches—the followers of the older, nature-centered and alternative faiths have traditionally praised its beauty and uplifting power. In 1952 during a convention of the Ameri­can Association for the Advancement of Science, representatives of the church made their feelings clear when a paper on…

In The Fields of the Blessed

BY WILLIAM HENRY

“The doors of the sky are opened, the doors of the firmament are thrown open at dawn for Horus of the Gods. He goes up to the Field of Reeds, he bathes in the Field of Reeds.”—Utterance 325, Pyramid Texts In numerous ancient traditions there is a description of a hidden and blessed place linked by a chain of symbols, a repetition of place names (the Reed Place), and references to this place as a door to a parallel dimension. As I docu­ment in my…

Quebec’s Curious Hammer

BY FRANK JOSEPH

In 1964, archaeologist Thomas E. Lee was scouting near an excavation underway near the village of Imaha, in north­ern Quebec, when he found a tall, curious monument on the desolate north bank of the Payne Estuary, 15 miles above the village of Payne Bay, near the west coast of Ungava Bay. The two-ton stone structure stands 8 feet high and measures 4-1/2 feet across at its pointed lintel, surmounted by a 14-inch-high capstone. While the pillar was a sur­prise to Lee and his colleagues, he…
