Those familiar with Graham Hancock's 'The Sign and the Seal' will have a bit of a head-start with this. In his book, Hancock presents three
concepts key to this post.
Firstly, that the the Ark of the Covenant, which is meant to (have) carried the Ten Commandments as written by God and bestowed upon Moses, could be
synomynous with the Holy Grail.
Secondly, Hancock notes the rise of advanced gothic architecture around the same time that the Templar Knights may have been seeking the Grail/Ark. In
this way, we are presented with the suggestion that the secrets held within the Ark could
actually be indicative of Geometrical knowledge.
Thirdly, the similarities between Moses and the Egyptian Osiris are acknowledged. Etymologically, the word 'Moses' has its roots in the combining of
the Egyptian word 'Mou' - meaning water, and 'eses' - meaning those who are saved. Thus 'Mou-eses' translates as 'saved from water', and may
have little value when describing a person specific to one legend only.
These three points indicate a strong link between sacred geometry, Freemasonry and the early 'gods' of Egypt:
- Freemasons as an extension of the Templar Knights.
- The geometrical and architectual innovations that occured at the time of the Templar Knights.
- The Templar Knight's relentless search for the Grail.
- The similarities between the Grail and the Ark of the Covenant.
- The Ark that carried the Ten Commandments given to Moses by 'God.
- The link between Moses and Egypt, Osiris imparticular.
So it seems logical to me that the secrets of the 'Grail' hail all the way back to early Ancient Egypt. And this is where my own little bit of
speculation comes in. Whenever I thought of the 'Ten Commandments' given to Moses, I couldn't help but think of the 'Codex' that Scott Creighton
mentions so often:
They (the temples) were built according to an architectural plan which was supposed to have been revealed in a codex that fell from the heavens at
Saqqara in the days of Imhotep." Aldred 'The Egyptians'
Now it might seem like a bit of a jump to compare the stone tablets that were marked with ten moral rules by God with an ancient set of instructions
on how to incorporate profound geometrical information into the building of temples and structures. However, I've always felt that the Bible should
very much not
be taken at face value. Moses may have received 'the word of God' at Mount Sinai, but perhaps the idea of ten written rules is
an embellishment or misinterpretation of events - perhaps accidentally or deliberately to hide the true nature of this 'Holy Grail'.
Could not the vital information encoded into the Giza complex be the true 'word of God(s)'? Could not the Holy Grail, the Ark of the Covenant and
the Giza Codex be one and the same thing? Could this codex (have) held within it the most vital knowledge known to all mankind? Could this knowledge
be the ultimate focus of such Secret Societies as the Freemasons (thus explaining their emphasis on both Geometry and God)?
