Three questions asked of the author.

"The Giza site is the exact replica, five times larger, of the pyramid of Cheops. This fact sheds new light on the knowledge of the ancient Egyptians. Our calculations and research prove that the plateau of Giza has all the characteristics of a very high-level and precise geometrical whole, brought, perhaps, from . . . elswhere.

The passageways and rooms of this pyramid, incomprehensible on the vertical level, take on new meaning if looked at horizontally. Their layout constitutes ideal premises for highly technical installations. Our work shows that the Chephren passageways under the Sphinx can also be used as archive rooms, "halls of records" according to Cayce.

What were these "warehouses" used for? Our research and the correlations established with the prophecies of Edgar Cayce lead us to believe that they formed a document library -- sound documents according to Cayce -- perhaps archives, and in any case new knowledge for humanity . . . ."

TextYou seem very sure of yourselves and of your conclusions
"Everything fits and each new element can be placed perfectly in the immense puzzle of Giza. Our work has been confirmed by our discoveries on the Anhk and the so-called "magic" hieroglyphics. As for our geometrical demonstrations, such logic and such frequency cannot be just coincidence. If an archeologist agrees to read the layout of the site based on our hypotheses, then Giza reveals all its logic and shows a dimension that goes beyond the imagination. But take care: if we are categorical in our conclusions -- verifiable in the long term - we remain cautious about their interpretation: who built this installation, why such precision?

What was the original use of the site? In any case, archeological digs show the correctness of our theories; it remains for us to interpret them. All we have to do is dig . . . ."

Text Why exactly did you not do any digging?
"We naturally wanted to dig, especially as we indicate the entrances and we do not have to go down very far. Unfortunately the Egyptian authorities are very demanding about permission to carry out archeological digs. Sites are granted to different countries. If France has access to Karnak and Sakara, it is Germany, japan and Great Britain that have the right to explore the Giza plateau.

We would also like to stress the fact that the present digs of the German mission confirm our conclusions about the Cheops galleries: the Upuaut operation discloses the existence of "valves" which obstruct the ventilation ducts. Our calculations had clearly revealed these discoveries, as the air ducts become canals underground.

Although history has shown that contributing new ideas is always rewarding, the world of Egyptologists resists original approaches, especially when it calls into question their work. They believe they have rights over discoveries, and do not want others to propose other hypotheses about the site."


The pyramids of Giza are not just tombs built for each death, but they reflect an overall plan.

The builders of the pyramids knew and used the calculation of the squaring of the circle down to the nearest one-hundredth, which is still a mystery for today's mathematicians.

The works of Gruay and Mouny confirm the prophecies of Edgar Cayce, the famous American visionary.

The Sphinx is the forerunner of the architectural complex of Giza, an idea that is shared by Cayce and two researchers from the Boston Institute.

To the eleven pyramids of the plateau must be added a twelfth, buried 1 56 cubits north of the Sphinx, the pyramid of the archives, where the memory of an unknown civilization is to be found.

Cats, because they were rare and could destroy rodents, were a state secret in ancient Egypt.

The golden section -- 1.618 -- the five-pointed star and the seal of Solomon can be found everywhere at the Giza site.

A prophet announced that an Egyptian official, helped by two men, would find the secret of the Giza in 1998.

The pyramids of Chephren and Mykerinos are the twins of the two fictitious pyramids, indispensable to an understanding of the plateau.

"The Fleeing Atalante" by Michael Maier, Count of the Holy Empire and 17th century alchemist is a drawing --a key -- whose proportions and relations coincide exactly with the visible and underground plan of Giza.

Text This is the outside of the Pyramids.

I have seen this man on numerous shows about the pyramids, and he is very good! He is known as the third millennium pharaoh, his name-Zahi Hawass," target='_blank' class='tabOff'/>

Outside the pyramid
The Great Pyramid was part of a complex that included a special walkway, two temples, other pyramids, boat pits and the mastabas of nobles.

Are discoveries in Egypt continuing?

At a striking rate. I’d just like to recall the latest: a tomb dating back to the Late period in the centre of Cairo; two statues of Amenophis III near Luxor, in the Valley of the Kings, which therefore does not only contain tombs; a necropolis with 3000 embalmed hawks in the Dakhla Oasis; statues and relics from the Ramesside Epoch in the Delta; remains from the Christian Epoch near Pelusium (not far away from the Suez Canal) and, during the latest days none other than the nth Pyramid (the 110th): this is a very large construction located in Abu Roasch (to the West of Cairo) and dedicated to Gedefra, one of Cheope’s two children, therefore from the same dynasties the Gizah pyramids belong to

Speaking of pyramids, does the latest information made available enable us to understand something about their origin?

The latest elements confirm once and for all that pyramids were royal sepulchres, built by the Egyptians in the Dynastic Period, at the time of the Old Kingdom. In Gizah, not far from the Sphinx, we have found the sepulchres of the nobles, those of the workmen who had built the pyramids, and those of the artists who frescoed them: they were all next to each other, which proves that the whole area had been a vast necropolis, complete with its own sacred statues and sphinx, a legendary figure of Egyptian mythology placed as a protection of the sacred and cemeterial areas. Therefore it was not extinct civilisations or aliens who constructed these colossal structures.
Speaking of restorations, is the Sphinx in need of treatment?

Yes it is; it is a difficult ‘patient’, but our treatments are proving successful. The latest restoration, which has only recently been completed, has been the object of praise by all the European and American research centres: we have reinforced the most damaged parts of this statue with limestone blocks. Furthermore, we are in the process of creating some infiltration within the Sphinx rock with insulating material to oppose the fatal action of humidity, in compliance with the suggestions received from an Italian expert, Prof. Giuseppe Fanfoni, who has really made a name for himself here in Egypt.

In other words, Egypt, with its historic and natural beauty spots, is more than ever open to the beneficial influx of foreign tourists.

5000 years of history, which have witnessed the combined action of a number of different cultures, enable us to appreciate and benevolently welcome foreign visitors. Our people is warm and generous, proud of its past and dignified in the present. Foreigners are welcome, with special reference to European visitors, who however are asked not to impose their culture and vision of the world. Those who come to Egypt are to respect a country which, amongst other things, is a model of peaceful religious coexistence of Muslims and Christians. And archaeologists themselves, whose contribution is extremely precious for our heritage, are not simply to go hunting for sensational articles, but are to promptly restore and publish their findings, to ensure that the scientific community and Egypt archaeology lovers may be immediately informed.

What was heralded as "arguably the biggest discovery in the history of science" last week -- a fossilized organism embedded in a meteorite which arrived on Earth from Mars -- is the first evidence of life beyond our own world. Could advanced life forms have existed on the Red Planet millions of years ago? Robert Bauval and bestselling author Graham Hancock, whose book, Fingerprints of the Gods, was the publishing phenomenon of last year, believe there is evidence to support this. Monumental structures on the planet's surface have mystified scientists for 20 years. Are they the result of natural processes... or the remains of a great civilization? Decide for yourself.


The "Face on Mars" was identified on Viking frame 35A72 by Dr. Tobias Owen, who is now professor of astronomy at the University of Hawaii. The same frame, covering approximately 34 by 31 miles -- also shows many other features that could be artificial.

If you look at this face on Mars, it is eerily similiar to the sphinx,

This face can lead to many leads about the sphinx.

These cluster around latitude 40 degrees north in the region of Mars known to astronomers as Cydonia, and were photographed from an altitude of more than 1,000 miles with relatively poor resolution.

A casual glance reveals only a jumble of hills, craters and escarpments. Gradually, however, as though a veil is being lifted, the blurred scene begins to feel organized and structured - too intelligent to be the result of random natural processes.

Although the scale is grander, it looks the way some archaeological sites on Earth might look if photographed from 1,000 miles up.

The more closely you examine it, the more it is apparent that it really could be an ensemble of enormous ruined monuments on the surface of Mars.

For a long while after the 1976 Viking photographs, NASA and other scientific authorities continued to disseminate what one researcher calls "the bogus claim that the 'Face' is a trick of light and shadow".

This notion began to be challenged seriously only when Vincent Di Pietro, a computer scientist and former NASA consultant, discovered another image of the "Face" on frame 70A13.

This second image, which had been acquired 35 Martian days later than the first one and under different lighting conditions, made possible comparative views and detailed measurements of the "Face."

Complete with its distinctive sphinx-like headdress, it is now known to be almost 1.6 miles long from crown to chin, 1.2 miles wide and just under 2,000 ft.. high. Image analysts say the bilateral symmetry of the "Face," which has a natural, almost human appearance, is most unlikely to have come about by chance.

This impression is confirmed by other characteristics that have subsequently been identified under computer enhancement. These include 'teeth' in the mouth, bilaterally crossed lines above the eyes, and regular lateral stripes on the headpiece -- suggestive, to some researchers at least, of the headdress of ancient Egyptian pharaohs.

According to Dr. Mark Carlotto, an expert in image processing, all "these features appear in both the Viking images, and are coherent shapes structurally integral to the object. Thus they could not have been caused by random interference or artifacts of the image restoration and enhancement process."
So, knowing that there is a pyramid on Mars, suggests to me that aliens may have helped build the Great Pyramids,a and the Sphinx.______________________________________________________


The same is also true for the "D&M Pyramid" (named after Di Pietro and his associate Gregory Molenaar, also a former NASA contractor, who discovered it).

This five-sided structure stands about ten miles from the "Face" and, like the Great Pyramid of Egypt, is aligned virtually north-south towards the spin axis of the planet.

Its shortest side is a mile, its long axis extends to almost two miles and it is half a mile high.

Commenting on the proximity of the "Face" and the "D&M Pyramid," American researcher Richard Hoagland asks a pointed question: "What are the odds against two terrestrial-like monuments on such an alien planet and in essentially the same location?"

Hoagland has made his own detailed study of Frame 35A72 and has identified additional, possibly artificial, features.

These include the so called "Fort," with its two distinctive straight edges, and the "City," which he describes as "a remarkably rectilinear arrangement of massive structures interspersed with several smaller pyramids."

Hoagland also points out another striking fact about the "City:" it seems to have been sited in such a way that the inhabitants would have enjoyed a perfect, almost ceremonial, view of the "Face."

The impression of a great ritual center, shrouded under the dust of ages, is enhanced by other features of Cydonia, such as the Tholus, a massive mound similar to Britain's Silbury Hill, and the "City Square," a grouping of four mounds centered on a fifth, smaller mound.

This configuration, so suggestive of cross hairs, turns out to be located at the exact lateral center of the "City."

In addition, a group of British researchers based in Glasgow has recently identified what looks like a massive four-sided pyramid, the so called "NK Pyramid," 25 miles west of the "Face" and on the same latitude (40.8 degrees north) as the "D&M Pyramid."

In the same general area is a feature called the "Bowl," approached by a tapered ram that has been likened to the stairway of a Mexican pyramid.

"Looking at the whole of Cydonia," says Chris O'Kane of the Mars Project UK, "my gut feeling is that these structures have to be artificial."

O'Kane's hunch is strengthened by the fact that "many of the structures are non-fractal." In plain English this means that their contours have been scanned and assessed as artificial by highly sophisticated computers.

"What we have, therefore," sums up O'Kane, "is an improbable assortment of anomalies. They have alignments, they're grouped, and they're non-fractal." Nor is Cydonia the only site on Mars to have yielded photographic evidence of unusual and apparently artificial structures.

Pyramids have been identified elsewhere, notably in the region known as Elysium, on the opposite side of the planet where , as early as 1971, NASA's Mariner 9 spacecraft photographed a group of mile-high three-sided structures.

Other Martian features that are decidedly non-fractal include a straight line more than three miles long defined by a row of small pyramids, extensive rhomboidal enclosures in the south polar region, and a weird, castle-like edifice rising to a steeple more than 2,000 ft. high.


If there was a civilization on Mars capable of creating such monuments, then what might have happened to it?


Since extensive damage typical of explosive penetration is apparent on some of the structures, notably the "D&M Pyramid," more than one researcher has suggested that the Martians might have destroyed themselves in a suicidal war. A geological cataclysm is another possibility.

Analysis of the Martian meteorite suggests the Red Planet was warm and wet - an environment that is likely to have been hospitable to life. Today, it is permanently frozen.

The change may have been caused by a very large and rapid slippage of Mars's outer crust, a phenomenon which has also been cited as a possible cause of the cataclysmic end of Earth's last Ice Age 13,000 years ago.

Evidence reported in Scientific American in 1985 confirms that Mars did at some unknown stage in its history, suffer a catastrophic crustal displacement.

If this had happened during the planet's warm and wet phase, any civilization present at that time would almost certainly have been wiped out in the ensuing global floods and earthquakes, leaving behind only whatever scattered ruins and monuments were massive and stable enough to survive.

The pyramids and the sphinx on Mars seem to fit the bill. And if they are artificial, then the implications for our idea of ourselves and our place in the universe are shattering.

One top priority in President Bill Clinton's recently announced program of intensified Mars exploration should be a mission to find out for sure, particularly so since NASA has hitherto refused to include Cydonia in the list of more than 150 sites of scientific interest that it recognizes officially on Mars.

Similarly, investigators would be unwise to ignore the fact that there is a region very like Cydonia on Earth -- Egypt's famous Giza plateau -- which has its own distinctive pyramids and Sphinx.

Associated with these ancient monuments is a tradition that they were built by an antediluvian race as repositories for scrolls and books of past ages, and intended "to prevent the ancient wisdom from being lost in the Flood."

Could that flood have been the cataclysmic 400 ft. rise in sea levels that we know took place 13,000 years ago at the end of the last Ice Age? And could there be some sort of bizarre interplanetary connection, not yet understood, between the story of civilization on Earth and on Mars?



Is there an extraordinary connection between the Martian meteorite containing what scientists believe to be a fossilized organism and mysterious structures on the surface of the Red Planet? Robert Bauval and Graham Hancock, authors of the number one bestseller Keeper Of Genesis ( Message of the Sphinx ), which was serialized in the Mail earlier this year, believe there could be. On Saturday, in the first part of their controversial series, they described the strange monumental objects in Cydonia, a region of Mars, and how they could be the remains of a long-dead civilization. They also pointed at the bizarre similarity between a structure called "The Face" and the Egyptian Sphinx. Today, in the second part, Bauval and Hancock focus on the other inexplicable links between Mars and ancient Egypt .

At some points in its orbit Mars passes less than 30 million miles from Earth -- in cosmic terms just outside our front porch compared to the nearest star, Alpha Centauri, which is 26 thousand billion miles away.

Therefore it is not beyond the bounds of possibility that there could be a connection between life and civilization on Mars and life and civilization on Earth.

Since time began, Earth has played host to literally millions of strange visitors from outer space -- meteorites. It has been estimated that a million meteorites hurtle through the Earth's atmosphere every year.

Fortunately most of them are tiny and quickly burn out after entry, appearing to us as "shooting stars." A few survive the atmosphere and reach the ground. These can be as small as a ping-pong ball or as large as a London bus.

The most spectacular meteorites found on the Earth are the large "oriented" meteorites, so called because they cut through the air retaining their direction of flight like a cannon shell, with their front part taking the brunt of the frictional heat. When they hit the ground they are found to be shaped like cones or pyramids.

Wonderful examples of "oriented" meteorites can be seen in museums around the world. a 15-ton "oriented" iron meteorite called Willamette is displayed in the Smithsonian Institute in New York and another, called Morito, can be seen at the Institute of Metallurgy in Mexico city.

Such an "oriented" meteorite, probably pyramidal in shape, could have been at the root of the mystery of the Giza pyramids.

It is known that long before the so-called pyramid age of Egypt (circa 2,500 BC) a strange pyramidal or conical "stone" was kept within a sanctuary called the Temple of the Phoenix, 12 miles to the east of Giza in the sacred city of Heliopolis.

This mysterious stone was called the Benben, derived from the root Ben -- a word which Egyptologists say means "seed'' or "procreation."

Other details that ancient Egyptian texts give us about the Benben strengthen the possibility that it may have been a meteorite. We are told that it came "down from heaven" like the firebird or Phoenix. It was also said to have been "sent by the gods" at the moment of "Creation" -- an epoch the pharaohs called Zep Tepi, literally meaning "The First Time."

In our book, Keeper Of Genesis, we used the science of astronomical alignments to calculate the date of the "First Time" to 12,500 BC. The implication, if the Benben was indeed an oriented meteorite, is that it landed in Egypt in precisely the same period during which the meteorite containing a fossilized organism from Mars arrived in Antarctica.

The original Benben of Heliopolis -- an object that was already old in the time of the ancient Egyptians - is lost. Whatever its origins , it must have been of paramount importance to the pyramid builders, because stylized replicas of it served as the capstones of all pyramids.

A surviving example, carved in one piece out of a hard stone known as diorite, is in the main hall of the Cairo Museum. On it are two rows of enigmatic hieroglyphs evoking the "Lord of the Horizon" (the rising sun, according to Egyptologists) and making reference to a deity called Sahu, identified with the constellation of Orion and the deity Osiris -- the archetypal god of the "First Time," whose "Divine Seed" created humanity.

Beneath the complex layers of symbolism, the ancient Egyptian texts can be taken to link the origins of life -- and civilization -- to the arrival of a meteorite. Within the past ten years, scientists have independently reached a similar conclusion, arguing that life on Earth may indeed have been imported -- or "seeded" -- by a meteorite or a comet, billions of years ago.

A striking characteristic of the pyramids and Sphinx of Giza is the way in which they are integrated into a grand architectural plan, based on mathematical and astronomical data.

There is no evidence that the pyramids were used as tombs. What is certain is that two narrow shafts emanating from inside the Great Pyramid were directed to two specific stars: Zeta Orionis, one of the three stars in Orion's belt, and Sirius, in the constellation of Canis Major.

It is certain, too, that the principal Giza monuments form an accurate terrestrial "map" of the three stars of Orion's belt as these constellations appeared in 10,500 BC.

Who could have been observing the skies over Giza in 10,500 BC and who, at that date, could have had the technical capacity to realize such monumental works as the Sphinx and the pyramids?

Egyptologists assert there was no civilization on Earth at that time, let alone one capable of planning and building such immense, well engineered structures. If they are right, why do the alignments of Giza so plainly and repetitively mirror the skies of the 11th millennium BC?

Former NASA consultant Richard Hoagland is convinced there may be a "terrestrial connection" between Giza and Cydonia -- the region of Mars where the mysterious structures are located -- perhaps a common source that imparted the same legacy of knowledge and symbolism on both worlds.

Hoagland's interest in Giza began when he met Dr. Lambert Dolphin, a scientist from the Stanford Research Institute (SRI) who had conducted radar and seismographic research to locate hidden chambers near and under the Great Sphinx.

Dr. Dolphin was captivated by Hoagland's idea of a "Martian Sphinx" -- the "Face"-- and in 1983, was instrumental in helping Hoagland set up the Independent Mars Investigation Project under the aegis of SRI.

Hoagland argues that the Face on Mars is "not merely the image of an terrestrial hominid...lying where it has no business being. One half (the right) is also the perfect image of a cat; specifically a lion - the king of beasts. So the Martian sphinx is in truth the combination of two 'families:' hominid...and ...feline."

The discription also fits the lion-bodied, human headed Egyptian Sphinx. Another coincidence is that the ancient Egyptians called the Sphinx Hor-em-Akhet, meaning "Horus in the Horizon." Horus -- the hawk-god, the divine child of Isis and Osiris -- is a name derived from the Egyptian word Heru, which translates as "face."

Helped by a mathematician, Erol Torun, Hoagland has also identified a number of intriguing mathematical and geographical connections between Cydonia and Giza.

Torun was among the first to realize that one of the large "pyramids" on Mars, the "D&M Pyramid," contains a variety of functions and constants used in a sophisticated mathematical system known as tetrahedral geometry. Evidence of such high mathematics in supposedly natural structures is strongly suggestive of a conscious design.

The most important recurring feature found in the mathematics of Cydonia is the value 0.865 -- derived from the ratio of e (an important mathematical constant equal to 2.7) and pi (the mathematical constant of 3.142 used to work out the properties of spheres and circles). This Hoagland terms the "message of Cydonia."

A trigonometrical function, the arc tangent of e/pi, gives the value of 40.8 which is the Mars latitude on which both the "D&M Pyramid" and the "NK Pyramid" are sited. Amazingly, another trigonometrical function, the cosine of e/pi, gives the value 30 -- the exact geographical latitude of the pyramids of Giza on Earth.

Hoagland has demonstrated that the Great Pyramid of Giza contains "tetrahedral" functions identical to those of the "D&M Pyramid" on Mars, and Torun has shown that the positioning of the Great Sphinx, relative to the pyramids, expresses the Cydonian ratio e/pi.

"The odds of such correlations happening by coincidence on two neighbouring planets are somewhere in the region of one in 7,000," says Hoagland. What makes coincidence look even less likely is a bizarre link to another ancient site on Earth.

One of the key angles of Cydonia, repeated again and again, is 19.5 degrees. this is precisely the latitude (19.5 degrees north) of the mysterious Mexican city of Teotihuacan, 'the place where men became gods', with its three distinctive pyramids dedicated respectively to the Sun, the Moon, and to Quetzalcoatl, the Central American counterpart of Osiris.


With this resemblance to the Sphinx face, on Mars, it seems that it may be likely that life existed before our time. Aliens may have marked a spot where they will land, or , their knowledge will be found , and that may be inside the Sphinx.
