Many thanks for your post.
Sandals: why do you think the ancients put all this information in codes and hiden meanings... why not just right it all over the walls of the
SC: Ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs have been around for at least 4,500 years, most likely much longer. We only began to interpret and understand them
about 200 years ago. We STILL do not fully understand them.
The very fact that the structures of the Giza plateau are – in comparison to other temples and burial chambers in Egypt - quite devoid of
inscriptions is quite telling. It is almost as though these structures have been purposefully left in this state. There are no inscriptions of any
great number or consequence inside or outside any pyramid at Giza; nothing that could distract from or blur the 'message'. One possibility for this
glaring lack of inscriptions at Giza is perhaps because it had been ordained from the ‘sacred design’ that the site should not carry any such
distractions to ensure that the structures are free to ‘communicate’ to us in a much more basic and universal language – the language of
mathematics and astronomy. And it is to the language of mathematics and astronomy that we must turn if we are to have any hope of unveiling the
'message' being conveyed to us from beyond antiquity.
When one views the Giza plateau from any distance, what one immediately recognises is the geometry and symmetry of its structures – in other words,
the language of mathematics. By considering the plateau in this manenr it seems natural to conclude that the primary context
of the Giza
monuments is mathematical.
And, of course, there are clear benefits for the Designers of the Giza blueprint to have chosen the language of mathematics and astronomy to
‘encode’ and communicate important information to future civilisations since only in this language could they ensure the essence of what they are
trying to say would be preserved - no matter how long the passage of time.
Mathematics is not ethnocentric and transcends all cultures and ages - past, present and future. Certainly the level of mathematical understanding
will differ across the ages and within different civilisations and cultures, for example, the understanding of abstract numbers such as Pi and Phi.
Quite simply, however, to any society reasonably advanced in mathematics and astronomy, this discipline would be the ‘language’ of choice to
preserve and ‘transmit’ important information far into the future where – if written as text or in some form of hieroglyph – its meaning might
otherwise be misinterpreted or corrupted. In short, the intended meaning in any text or image can become ‘lost in translation’ – mathematics
This is not to say, of course, that the ancient Designers would have used complex or convoluted mathematical formula to encode their information since
this would be entirely counter-productive and self-defeating to the purpose. If the key requirement is - first and foremost - to transmit information
in such a way that it can be easily understood to future civilisations, then it stands to reason that it should not require a mathematical genius to
detect and decode it.
The idea that the pyramids may contain encoded information ‘written’ in the language of mathematics and astronomy isn’t new and has been
proposed by many researchers and writers, not least of which is Graham Hancock in his best-selling book, Fingerprints of the Gods (p. 197).
All that is required of us here in the 21st century is to learn how to decode it.
