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 Fate of the Watchers

By Andrew Collins

The Genesis Secret by Thomas Knox (HarperCollins, 2009, and see also the website http://thegenesissecret .com) is a novel centered around the discovery in southeast Turkey of the proto-Neolithic megalithic complex of Gobekli Tepe, constructed ca. 10,000 BC by an unknown race of people at the end of the last Ice Age. Thomas Knox is the nom-de-plume of British journalist Sean Thomas, who first contacted me back in 2007. He had become interested in Gobekli Tepe, which I’d written about extensively since visiting there and nearby…

Electromagnetism & The Ancients

BY GLEN KREISBERG

It’s been suggested, at various times, that ancient humans had knowledge and use of unseen powers, forces and ener­gy fields. Could these unseen forces and fields consist of electromagnetic frequency waves and particle fields that make up the EM Spectrum? This is not a simple question to answer. What evidence exists, and what kind of evidence may come to light, to support such a claim? There is no question that as it has always existed, the EM Spectrum is a naturally occurring part of our…

Egypt’s Animated Statues

By Tony Bushby

The religious and history books of Egypt are filled with allusions to magical operations and ceremonies that are almost impossible to believe today, and one is the claim that initiated temple priests possessed a special knowledge that could make stone statues move and talk. Egyptians believed that every object, animate or inanimate, could be made to obey the will of men who possessed a thorough knowledge of a series of variant spells and the ‘words of power’ necessary to achieve this end. In this way,…

Quest for the Grail: The Sri Lanka Connection

BY MARK AMARU PINKHAM

The Holy Grail legends written during the Middle Ages in Europe were the first to reveal that the Knights Templar were the true and eternal Guardians of the Holy Grail. This notion was initially popularized by a knight, Wolfram von Eschenbach, who in A.D. 1200 made it public record in Parzival, the most comprehensive and compelling rendition of the grail legend ever written. In addition to this revelation regarding the Templars, Eschenbach also proclaimed in his magnum opus that the Holy Grail could be something…

The Return of the Djedi

By Mark Amaru Pinkham

The Jedi Knights of Star Wars were not simply the figment of George Lucas’s most fertile and provocative imagina­tion. Those who have grown up coveting the powers of the Jedi will be pleased to learn that Masters of the Force did indeed once exist. Records of them survive in certain countries, such as Egypt and Persia, where they were magician priests and the guardians of powerful priest kings similar to the “Emperor” of Star Wars, albeit without his predilec­tion for the “Dark Side.” In ancient…

Ancient Metals

BY WILL HART

Our current civilization would not exist if four principle inventions had not occurred: agriculture, the wheel, writing and metallurgy. In each case a considerable amount of conceptual work was invested in the discovery process. This is the all-important precursor to the development of any technology and it is the process that is almost never brought up or analyzed by scholars, archaeologists and anthropologists. In a rare exception, in his excellent paper ‘The Problems and Prospects of Cultural Evolution’ (Part II) anthropol­ogist Robert Fellner did address…

Ancient Genius

By Robert Bauval

In the region of Greater Cairo, in the northeast segment of the modern city, stands a lonely obelisk. It marks the position of the most revered ‘learning center,’ a ‘university,’ of the ancient world. No Egyptologist really knows how old this mysterious center is, who first put it at that place and why, let alone what systems of science and knowledge were taught there. Most, however, believe that Heliopolis was there long before the pyramids. It was known as Innu by the ancient Egyptians; later…

Dragons of the Ishtar Gate

BY PETER KING

The Pergamon in Berlin is ranked as one of the great museums of the world and it is equally true that the entrance to it must be the most impressive approach of any museum ever built. This is known as the Ishtar Gate. It was named for the Mesopotamian goddess of love and was one of the eight gates allowing entry to the inner city of Babylon. It was built during the reign of Nebuchadnezzar II, took 43 years and was completed in 575 B.C….

Hall of Records Coverup?

BY DR. GREG LITTLE

In Atlantis Rising, (March 2010) Philip Coppens described rumors of secret passageways under the Giza Plateau in­cluding brief details of an illegal excavation that occurred in September 2009. The illegal excavation was apparently a search for Edgar Cayce’s Egyptian Hall of Records. Until researcher Bill Brown asked me for assistance in arranging a meeting with John Van Auken, Director of the Association For Research & Enlightenment (ARE), I was not aware of the details. Oddly, only a few days before Brown’s request, he sent an…
