I thought this was very interesting from any number of perspectives:

Egyptian pyramids found by infra-red satellite images

What I find so compelling about this is that first of all it is confirmation of the fact that radar tomography is indeed being used to find and identify archaeological sites hitherto unknown or unexplored. It opens the possibility that similar imaging was done in, well, Libya for example, or South America, where sites lay under the jungle overgrowth and very possibly even underground, or Mesopotamia, Persia...  ... Israel .... ....Well, if you're paying attention, that's all the "hot spots" in the world (excepting South America, and by all accounts, they're pretty fed up too), and that raises the question: just what may be really going on?

I've never hesitated in my belief that the incursions into Iraq had, at least in part, the objective to secure priceless antiquities for "someone." Earlier, internet rumors - which in my opinion lack sufficient corroboration though there are suggestive ideas - abounded that similar radar tomography might have been employed to find sites in Libya. And now, we have Egypt, the installation of a new regime, the removal of long-time antiquities tsar Zahi Hawass, and now we're told there are new sites to excavate.

While it's nothing more than an intuition at this point, I don't find any of this, for a moment, coincidental. While we're witnessing the quiet explosion of "democracy" all over the Middle East, while the Israeli prime minister addresses Congress while out own president is playing ping-pong with the British prime minister, something else, it seems to me, is quietly going on.

Which brings us to a second point: Let's suppose for the sake of argument and speculation, that "they"  are indeed looking for "something." The question then becomes: what? Information, for one thing. There are endless tales of "lost halls of records," and as I myself pointed out in Cosmic War, if one takes the ancient Mesopotamian texts at their literal word, the Tablets of Destinies themselves would certainly be candidates.  And there are the possible mummies that might be found: a rich honeypot of DNA information for geneticists to pour over in their reconstructions of the history of the human race.  Indeed, that alone make the story interesting and makes the information to be gained almost priceless.

    Perhaps we humans should reconsider the “myth” of the fallen angels, the Nephilim. The “bent ones” really would like to get off this quarantined planet. It would seem that they would need advanced technology, or more aptly, rediscovered technology. So any ancient caches of information or equipment would be of great help.

    Hmmm, just finished watching the BBC documentary, not exactly a stunning example of the filmakers art. clueless male and female eyecandy presenters, reinforcement of the bullsh*t about pyramids as tombs built with copper tools etc. There were however a few interesting glimpses at the potential of this technology but if this is what is in the public domain I’m pretty sure that there’s already something much better out there. All in all nothing exactly “new” was presented here 🙁

    BBC programme still promulgating the copper tool myth of building the Great Pyramid…..

  4. Archytype on May 30, 2011 at 12:19 pm

    I’m just getting ready to watch this TV Programme here in the UK now.

    It’s interesting about the Near-infrared images of the site, since very similar imagery has been taken of the Planet Mars…..anyone care to speculate further………al a Richard Hoaglands work????????

    This is of interest from Harvey’s article:

    “Hawass, director of the Djedi project, says that no other pyramid is known to have a tunnel and doorway like this, which, he says, suggests there could be a hidden room. “The King’s Chamber may have been a dummy room, since the most important thing in the mind of the ancient Egyptians was to hide the burial chamber,” he says. “We have a story that the magician Djedi met Khufu, who was searching for the god Thoth so he could find the secret of hiding his pyramid. Based on that maybe there is something hidden in the pyramid.”

    As a sort of addendum to this story, there is a New Scientist story just out that has some of the pictures taken by a “robot” (ie remote controlled vehicle) inside a small chamber in the Great Pyramid at Giza:

    In the pictures you can see some mysterious red markings on the wall of the chamber. The pictures are not good but someone may be able make more of them than I did. At the moment, to me they remain mysterious red markings …

    Best wishes

    Infrared radar finds seventeen new Egyptian pyramids surprising and we mustn’t forget the buried cities as well that were found as well I wonder what hidden treasures await and I not talking about gold,silver and other precious objects but lost knowledge and I wonder if these finds have not been looted and are intact waiting to be found to be used by the finders to help them in their climb to power and what is your take on all that water found on the Moon pretty surprising I wonder what other surprising await us there.

    What strikes me funny with the pyramid picture is, that their is hardly anything recognisable for the untrained eye in this.
    Unlike the Mars pictures of much better quality shown to the world by some Mr. Richard Hoagland. Only in Mr. Hoaglands case everything is supposed to be pure geological coincidence? oO
    Someone should confront those scientist with that question.^^

      A very astute point! Thanks for the comment!

  9. Jay-- on May 26, 2011 at 3:25 pm

    Anybody got high resolution images of the purported pyramids?

    “When the cats away, the mice will play!” Maybe the “Mice” are looking for a “Dog” to fend off the returning “Cat” !

    Yes, its all getting rather frantic, even!

    It has the word ‘ransack’ pop into the cabasa: ransacking of a region? Who knows Doc, maybe they read your stuff on the tabs of Destiny.

    Yes, suddenly poise and deliberation are abandoned , like a burglar feeling himself so close to finding what is sought, that it is merely a draw away…so trashing excelerates?

    Dr Farrell, indeed they are looking for something and every instrument is being used. I daresay that the drones being used over there have much more sensors than what is required to fire missiles at “tribesmen”. If they are willing to tell us “public” that they can spot something the size of a meter near the surface, then can we not assume they can spot such meters to 100’s of meters underground–including Antarctica. But like any war, you can win form the air but until you can get troops on the ground you can’t occupy or recover. Zahi was both a blessing and a curse. He ran a tight ship and protected whatever he found, but he sure as hell controlled what and when and how it was revealed. Something I found out watching an archaeologist’s show concerning The Exodus is that in this case neither Egypt or Israel wanted a damn thing done in searching out this history. I can kinda understand Egypt’s point of view–but what’s the problem with Israel? They Won! Didn’t they? Everything goes back to this old corner of the earth. All the conflicts are old. All the religions are old (and the reason for most of the conflicts). All the answers are there and they are OLD!
