Many thanks for your post.
Thomas: Now we just need to dig under the Sphinx paw and see if the chamber below really holds the allegedly hall of records.
SC: My own guess here is that NOTHING of any importance will be found under the Sphinx or in ANY pyramid. Let me explain why.
Knowledge is infinitely more precious than all the gold in the world. If you wished to preserve knowledge for the benefit of your children or your
children's children, where do you place it so that it will later be found ONLY by those that would understand the importance of what they had found -
and not destroy it in their complete ignorance?
Would you place such important artefacts iunder the Sphinx or nside a pyramid where every tomb-raider and their grandma would surely go looking for
gold? Not a good idea - especially when no gold is found by your ignorant tomb-raider. In their frustration who knows what damage they might inflict
upon ancient scripts or stelas - smash them up, use them to burn fires. Not a good idea ta all.
The trick is to present the knowledge in plain sight but invisible to those who do not have the eyes (or the math) to see.
You have hidden your cache of sacred knowledge for the benefit of future generations. Do you place it deep inside a mountain? Certainly it would
probably be well protected but most likely never to be found again - unless you could somehow 'signpost' it. More likely we would all simply drive
on by and never even notice an ordinary mountain let alone what may be buried within.
The next best thing is to build a manmade mountain of colossal size and bury the cache of knowledge within. Certainly such a manmade 'mountain'
(oyramid) would grab our attention but we're back to the ignorant tomb-robber problem again.
But what if we could use the attention-grabbing manamade mountain (the 'beacon') to somehow POINT to where the hidden cache of knowledge is to be
found? This is the ideal scanario. The manmade mountain (pyramid) most certainly grabs our attention, gets thousands of people to the general
location of the hidden cache of knowledge.
Biut, as stated, you do not just want anyone to find the hidden cache. You perhaps want those who understand the language of math and astronomy to
find the hidden knowledge because much of the knowledge may be of a scientific or advanced nature. You want a scientist to find the secret location,
not a tomb-raider/gold-digger.
So the solution is to use relatively simple mathematics in your manmade mountains (pyramids) to POINT to the secret location. But how?
You employ simple centroid geometry. What?
Here it is explained:
During my last research trip to Egypt I attempted to reach the Apex point of the Great Giza Triangle - the location of where I believe such a cache of
hidden knowledge/artefacts may be found. This Apex is a point to the southwest of Menkaure's Pyramid (G3) in the Egyptian desert near to the Giza
The Great Giza Triangle is a theoretical triangle constructed through the use of the 3 most ancient centroids and applying these to the three main
Giza pyramids. These centroids seem to be indicated by the very unusual 'concavities' which run from the base to the apex of each face of the Great
Pyramid and the smaller pyramid of Menkaure. Of around 100 pyramids in Egypt, only these two pyramids exhibit such an unusual feature which you can
By interpreting these 'concavities' as indicators of their latent centroids we find that they construct a triangle of a very specific size and
orientation. Indeed, ONLY this triangle will be reconstructed. The apex of this 'triangulation' picks out a very specific spot in the Egyptian
desert to the southwest of the Giza pyramids, here:
Egyptian explorer and researcher, Jon Bodsworth, attempted to reach this apex point from the north (via the Giza necropolis) but found a substantial
obstacle in his way:
During my own research trip to Giza, I attempted to circumvent 'Hawass's Wall' by heading southwest around the perimeter of the Giza plateau. This
is the route I planned to take:
As I journeyed around the perimeter of the Giza plateau (some 6 kilometers or so), it quickly became clear just how seriously the local Egyptian
police took the security of Giza with mounted police (on camels) and manned security towers:
Certainly there has been some security problems in Egypt in recent times with tourists being kidnapped and terrorist bombings, so I can understand why
the Egyptians take their security so very seriously. Strange though that the security at the actual entrance to the Giza necropolis is - by contrast -
quite relaxed. Plenty of antiquities police around but no bag searches, no metal detectors - nothing. Odd.
This is when I began to think is 'Hawass's Wall' really about protecting tourists or is it more about preventing tourists from wandering into
Continuing down the main road south it gradually became clear to me that it would be impossible for me to reach the GGT Apex point from the south
(i.e. from the other side of 'Hawass's Wall').
As can be seen from the next image, there is absolutely no way in to the location of the GGT Apex point. Arriving at the location from the south (as
opposed from the north) we find this:
In short then, attempting to reach the Apex point from the North (via the Giza necropolis) is terminated by the obstruction of Hawass's Wall (not to
mention armed mounted police and those also in the watch-towers).
Attempting to circumvent the 'wall' by walking around it to arrive at the Apex point from the south, your path is obstructed by another security
fence for as far as the eye can see.
The location of the GGT Apex is effectively sealed off by Hawass's Wall and a second security perimeter fence. I see no reason for this double-fence
- you certainly do not find them at other sacred sites such as Saqqara or Meidum.
Could it be that this sealed area - i.e. the location of the GGT Apex - is indeed hiding something under its ancient sands, something Dr Hawass does
not wish anyone to know of?
Now look at this area immediately adjacent to the Apex point:
(I have highlighted the rectangular area):
On the ground these lines are created by large white rocks like a GPR scan grid.
I am still trying to seek permission from the SCA to obtain access to this apparently restricted area.
