Many of you emailed this article to me (and, again, thank you to those of you who did, for sharing it with me) and it was one that I found as well during the last two weeks' web-trolling. The Huffington Post is reporting that a researcher using Google Earth has discovered some hitherto unknown pyramids in Egypt:
Now, if these actually do turn out to be pyramids upon closer human on-the-ground inspection, then by anyone's reckoning, it will be a significant discovery, and one that potentially could shed new light on the history and culture of ancient Egypt.
But there may be a deeper story here, and it is one that fans of alternative researchers Robert Bauval will be aware. Bauval is of course the researcher who has authored a number of important works in alternative Egyptology(or what the myopic academic community likes to call "pseudo-archaeology"), works such as The Orion Mystery (with co-author Adrian Gilbert), The Egypt Code, The Secret Chamber, and The Message of the Sphinx (with co-author Graham Hancock).
It is in his book Secret Chamber: The Quest for the Hall of Records, that Bauval surveys a little known aspect of esoteric lore, in a chapter entitled "The Prophecy of Monte Lybico"(Bauval, The Secret Chamber, Arrow Books, 2000, pp. 13-37). There Bauval refers to an ancient "hermetic" prophecy that some day the ancient gods would return to "monte lybico" or the mountains of Lybia, an obscure reference that Bauval interprets to mean the Giza compound.
But as I outlined in my book The Cosmic War, the term mountains is often used in close association with "gods, planets," and, of course, "pyramids." So in a very peculiar fashion, the discovery of these possible new pyramids in Egypt may indicate a kind of "fulfillment" of an old "prophecy" as some of the "ancient gods," the pyramids themselves, are re-discovered, or, to put it slightly differently, "have returned." It is peculiar as well that this discovery was announced only after the so-called "Arab spring", for as many readers of this website know, I have long entertained the idea that at least some of the reason for the West's covert and overt engagement of the Middle East, inclusive of its overt military incursions, is for the covert purpose of gaining access to hidden antiquities and the knowledge they might contain.
Time will tell, of course, whether any of this is true, but if these pyramids do prove to be the genuine article and if we are in fact told anything about them, and learn new things about that mysterious ancient high culture of Egypt from them, then we might all, once again, be forced back to the drawing board.
See you on the flip side.
