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…

Human Evolution & the Cygnus Constellation?

DR. GREG LITTLE

The evolution of modern man has long been one of the greatest mysteries of time. When did “modern” humans first appear? When did they make the first art? When did they build the first temples? When were the first true cities con­structed? And what was it that inspired these developments? These questions form a huge puzzle but the puzzle’s pieces continue to change. For example, what archaeological site across the world is accepted as the “first city?” What specific caves contain the “first art?” Nearly…

Dubai Conference Spotlights Interest in Ancient Mysteries Is Atlantis rising in Dubai? From indoor ski venues to vast luxury developments built on artificial islands, the oil-rich desert kingdom on the southern Persian Gulf has amply demonstrated that when it is interested in something, cost is no restraint on its imagination. Now, apparently, the kingdom has publicly demonstrated its taste for ancient myster­ies—Atlantis Rising-style. For two days in November (the 29th and 30th) no less than five (out of eight) world-class speakers who have ei­ther written…

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…

NEW ORION CORRELATION? Researcher Scott Creighton may have discovered a new dimension to the alignment between the pyramids at Giza and the constellation Orion. According to Creighton the so-called queens’ pyramids, two sets of three small pyramids each, next to the largest and smallest of the main Giza pyramids, are aligned with the three belt stars of Orion at two precise points in time exactly 12,960 years apart. The group to the south of Menkaure’s pyramid were aligned, he says, with the belt stars in…

The Lost Symbol and I

by Michael A. Cremo

Simon Cox is an interesting man. For a long time he was a researcher for some of the leading authors in the alterna­tive history field, like Graham Hancock and Robert Bauval. More recently, he has become a best-selling author him­self. His latest book is called Decoding the Lost Symbol. It is a reader’s guide to the names and places and ideas men­tioned by Dan Brown in his latest novel, The Lost Symbol. Previously, Simon wrote a similar book called Cracking the Da Vinci Code, about…

The Red Crag Carved Shell: Found and Lost

By Michael Cremo

In February 11, 2010, I flew into Dubai to attend the second International Conference for Ancient Studies, where I gave a lecture titled “Forbidden Archaeology: Archaeological Evidence for the Extreme Antiquity of Humans and Hu­man Civilization.” Some of the other speakers at the conference were Robert Bauval (The Orion Mystery), Graham Hancock (Fingerprints of the Gods), Robert Schoch (Voyages of the Pyramid Builders), John Major Jenkins (Unlock­ing the Secrets of 2012), and Andrew Collins (Beneath the Pyramids), among others. It was great meeting up with…

Mount Nemrut: Ancient Place of Initiation?

By Robert Schoch, Ph.D.

High in the eastern Taurus (southern Anti-Taurus) mountain range of modern Turkey, nestled between the mountains to the north and the Euphrates River to the south, at an elevation of some 7,000 feet, the gods congregate at a place known as Mount Nemrut (Nemrud Dagi). Visit the site today and after trekking up the mountain trail, you will arrive at a huge artificial limestone tumulus some 165 feet tall and nearly 500 feet in diameter erected on the natural summit of the mountain. Major terraces…

Robert Schoch Replies

By Robert M. Schoch, Ph.D.

The notion that the Great Sphinx of Egypt has its origins in extreme antiquity, dating back to at least circa 5000 BC, and quite conceivably 8000 BC or earlier, is an argument that I have developed over two decades based on painstaking analyses of the geology of the Giza Plateau (where the Great Sphinx and Great Pyramid are located). Conventional Egyptological thinking dates the Sphinx to 2500 BC, during the Fourth Dynasty of the Old Kingdom. My dating plac­es its oriågins long before the rise…
