Coredrill: Queries to Scott Creighton :
1. Was it only the Egyptians who were "affected" by the "geographic shift"??
SC: No. As stated in my post, many of the Bronze Age III cultures and city-states of the Near East were affected.
Coredrill: 2. Wasn't the 'effects' of this "geographical shift" experienced by others in other parts of the world? if so are there any signs or
records or anything about these?
SC: Yes. There is evidence from South America that it too experienced sudden and dramatic climate change around the same time.
Coredrill: 3. Why didn't others in other parts of the world also start something similar to your 'Osiris Project" related to their deities? or
if they had so, are there any signs or records of their own "Osiris Project"?
SC: I can’t really speak for other cultures around the world—only what I have studied and uncovered from ancient Egypt. Perhaps other cultures did
implement a recovery plan of sorts but that they did so differently from the way the ancient Egyptians implemented their own ‘recovery plan’ by
building pyramid Recovery Vaults on the high plateaus of the kingdom.
Coredrill: 4. Are there any records indicating that the AE went on to build "14" pyramids?
SC: There are actually around 138 pyramids in Egypt most of which are nothing more than piles of rubble. The myth of Osiris and Isis tells us that the
body of Osiris was cut into 14 parts. Some versions of the myth state there were 16 parts. The difference in the number may be due to the ancient
Egyptians of the Old Kingdom having failed to complete a couple of pyramids.
Coredrill: 5.If so, why so many different sized Pyramids. Why didnt they build it all the in the same scale? Was that, the "stuff" they stored
in the so called "wombs" were of different sizes, so the pyramids also were of different sizes?
SC: A number of reasons. The first thing to say is that you can’t run until you first learn to walk. It was a learning curve. Some of the earliest
pyramids ever built were constructed by Huni of the third dynasty—seven pyramids in total. None of these ‘Provincial Pyramids’ had any internal
chambers or ancillary buildings such as chapels, temples etc associated with them. These pyramids were far smaller than the giant pyramids that would
come later. These ‘Provincial Pyramids’ were the training ground where people from the various provinces were taught how to quarry, cut, dress,
move and stack blocks of stone in preparation for their commencement of the bigger project. At Giza, for example, the relative sizes of these
structures to each other was determined by the Orion Belt stars and some simple geometry. See here
Coredrill: 6. Which 14 Pyramids are these?
SC: The first 14 pyramids the ancient Egyptians built i.e. the early, giant pyramids that still stand today.
Coredrill: 7. If archaeology discovers another 20 or so pyramids, how would your "Osiris Project" theory account for them?? Would you classify
it as a second geographical pole Shift?
SC: As I stated earlier, there are about 138 pyramids in Egypt. The early, giant pyramids were, imo, built to ensure the recovery of the kingdom in
anticipation of a major environmental disaster. Over time, as the AE's religious ideas developed in association with the pyramid form as the ‘mound
of creation’ (or rather re-creation), this original concept of 'recovery of the kingdom' evolved into the ‘rebirth of the king’ and, as such,
for the later kings to receive an Osirian ‘rebirth’ may have required that their mummified body be placed in a much smaller and less well-built
pyramid. The 14 early, giant pyramids, however, served a completely different function to the much smaller, later pyramids.
Coredrill: Sorry...dont ask me to read your books which your would of course want me to buy them too, which i don't intend to do so. if you
would care to answer my queries, i would save me the money.
SC: I haven’t asked you to read or buy any of my books. Much of my research is available free to read right here on
my ATS Forum
and has been for many years now. I hope I have answered your queries.
