    That's also a very interesting question. On those occasions that I've talked publicly about my hypothesis as distinct from, say, Chris Dunn's, I've been surprised that so little opposition to my idea has come from the Christian or Jewish communities, for example. I've received less than enthusiastic responses from some of those that one might call "New Age", but in those cases I've noted that the opposition is largely due to a misunderstanding of what I'm actually saying. Some of these people think I'm maintaining my position dogmatically, whereas anyone who has read my books will note I take great care to call it nothing more than a "hypothesis", and one which I myself find uncomfortable, largely since it challenges so much current scientific orthodoxy.

    As for what I would say to them, I suppose I would say two things. First, they are right to be skeptical. One should maintain skepticism with any hypothesis, Chris Dunn's, my own, or anyone else's. However, I would also point out that I am trying to take seriously the implications suggested in some ancient texts, of the existence of a very sophisticated and weaponized technology. And the Great Pyramid, seen from that point of view, DOES possess an almost endless catalogue of amazing physical correspondences, and moreover, precision tolerances that one would associate with high technology and weaponry. So it seemed reasonable to me to look there for an entrance into exploring the wider issue of an ancient and sophisticated military technology and warfare.

  1. What most people seldom realize is that, by definition, any technically and scientifically advanced culture will always be a concentrated MILITARY INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX with multudinous and complex goals and agendas. If the two world wars in the last century had never happened and no conflicts were to be seen, then the dawning of the twenty-first century would almost certainly see the world as it looked at the end of the nineteenth; we’d still be depending on the horse and the masted sailing ship for our commercial transportation needs. No atomic age. No space age. No internet! It’s the nature of the beast: competition and even survival requires us to search for and find weaponizable infrastructure, often in shadowy obscurity, for there are always those who, from elsewhere, will wish to do us harm in one way or another!
