The Great Plan In The Great Pyramid
By Tom Valentine
There are more than two million blocks of lime-stone and granite making up the Great Pyramid which has withstood the ravages of time, earthquake and vandalism for more than two million sunrises and sunsets.
It is located on the Earth’s “prime” meridian and as close to the 30th parallel north as possible and still have room on the rocky plateau above the Nile Valley. The line of longitude on which the pyramid stands passes through more land mass than any other meridian. Coming south from the North Pole the line passes through the bulk of the European continent and the African continent. Going down the “backside” the opposite meridian passes through the least land mass.
The exactness of the location is only one of many factors which demonstrate that the Great Pyramid embodies scientific purpose. The construction is amazingly precise despite the tremendous size of the blocks and scope of the project. The dimensions, internally and externally, relate to one another with mathematical perfection.
It is no wonder it was the “first wonder” of the world, and legend ascribed its construction to divinity. Legend is close—it was designed and erected under the supervision of Masters and Adepts.
The Great Pyramid is oriented to the four cardinal points of the compass. Today, due to subsidence and earthquake, there is an error of about five seconds of arc. Such exact orientation required extraordinary astronomical knowledge. Tycho Brahe, the outstanding Danish astronomer of the Renaissance, built his observatory at Urambourg with perfect orientation in mind. He missed by eight minutes of arc.
The outer casing stones of the Great Pyramid were finished white limestone. They were ground to an optician’s quality smoothness and fitted with such perfection that the entrance doorway was never discovered from the outside.
The notion that the Great Pyramid was erected as a tomb for the Pharoah Khufu (called Cheops in Greek) was fostered by Heodotus, the Greek historian who talked with the priest Manetho. Since the pyramid was nearly 3,000 years old at that time, there is no wonder Herodotus’ information is contradictory. He writes that the pyramid was to be Pharoah’s tomb, but Khufu was never buried there, he was buried elsewhere.
As Berkeley pointed out in The Ultimate Frontier, the tombic theory cannot be supported by archeology. This erroneous theory is accepted primarily because the other pyramids were built to serve as tombs.
Scholars today cannot say who built it, nor when it was built; nor even how it was built. No wonder why it was built is such a mystery.
If there is anything in a name, there is a clue as to why the Great Pyramid was erected in the word “pyramid,” which comes from the Greek word “pyramidos,” which in turn derived from Hebrew-Chaldeac “urrimmidden,” which meant “lights-measures.” The word “khuti” or “khufu” in old Egyptian meant “glorious light,” and the Coptic word “pirimit” meant “the 10th measure in numbers.” Even across the Atlantic in the land of Maya the word was “pirhus-manco” and meant “revealer of light.” As the sunlight struck the polished white lime-stone and reflected off to make the Great pyramid literally a “light” in the desert, many grew to believe this was the meaning of the name.
The etymology, however, refers to light of revelation, and the “measures” part is plain. All the dimensional relationships are based upon the decimal system—the “10th measure in numbers.”
The message contained in the Great Pyramid could only be decoded by men having mathematical and astronomical knowledge equal to that of the builders.
The pyramid builders used a deliberate geometrical analogy to attract attention to the fact that they had exceptional knowledge of mathematics, In The Ultimate Frontier, Berkeley points out that the pyramid’s height is to its base as the radius of a circle is to its circumference, Since our orthodox ideas of history consider the time of the pyramid builders to be only a step or two away from the brutal and ignorant “Stone Age.” It is inconceivable to most people that these builders understood the “pi” relationship. But they did, and they embodied it indelibly in the structure for all who understood to see.
“Pi” is the relationship of a circumference of a circle to its diameter. We may use any unit of measure—feet, inches, meters, yards, cubits, etc. for the dimensions and the Great Pyramid will still define “pi.” Using feet, take the designed height of 486.2 feet (radius) and double it to get 972.5 feet (diameter) then divide the perimeter distance, 3055.2 feet, (circumference) to get “pi.”
Your answer should be 3. 14159+ which is “pi.” Note that you may continue carrying out your division without repeating the decimal. Today, thanks to computers, we now know what the pyramid builders knew then, that “pi” is a non-repeating decimal.
Actually the mathematics of the Great Pyramid tell us much more. It is quite apparent that the pyramid builders knew as much or more about the size and shape of Earth and our planets’ place in the solar system than we know today.
Though they probably knew not why, ancient Egyptians often referred to their Pharaoh as “Lord of the Orbit.” Knowing the precise nature of the Earth and its orbit allowed the pyramid builders to “write a history” without language or glyphs. History in advance, that is!
The Great Plan in the Great Pyramid
During the thousands of years between its completion and the 20th century A. D., when the key to its purpose was uncovered by a British structural engineer named David Davidson, the Great Pyramid stood on a plateau overlooking the Nile Delta and waited patiently for mankind to regain some of the knowledge possessed by its builders.
New cultures flared, conquered, ruled and died in the vicinity of the Great Pyramid without the leaders or scholars ever knowing what was inside the huge monument of polished limestone, Only a few unobtrusive members of the Mystic Brotherhoods knew the secret of the entrance. Obscure legends and rumors hinted of “golden secrets” hidden within.
Shortly after the turn of the 9th century A.D., Al Mamoud, Caliph of Bagdad, son of Harun Al Rashid, the ruler who inspired the famous “Arabian Nights” tales, decided to force his way into the pyramid and learn the “golden secrets .” His scholarly viziers told him of ancient writing describing “secrets of the ages” and “wonders for all mankind” buried within the structure, It is worthy of note that Moslem scholars did not give much credence to the idea that the Great Pyramid was a tomb.
Al Mamoud sent his masons to work, tunneling into the north face where legend said an entrance existed. No one had ever discovered the hinged door so perfectly fitted in the polished limestone casing.
After months of arduous tunneling, when the men were on the verge of rebellion, the sound of a falling stone informed a worker that somewhere above and to his left a hollow area indeed existed. They broke through into the narrow entrance passageway and excitedly explored the unobstructed descending passage and subterranean chamber, They found the ascending passage blocked by precisely fitted granite stones weighing several tons. The granite plugs could not be moved, they are still intact today, and another tunnel was forced to bypass the obstruction.
Al Mamoud found nothing valuable to him inside the Great Pyramid. He had anticipated riches in gold and gems, and ancient scrolls covered with words of wisdom Instead he saw a unique and strange system of passages and chambers with smoothly finished walls. The interior was devoid of statuary, hieroglyphs and other paraphernalia associated with ancient traditions.
The angry Moslems ripped off the entrance doorway and pieces of the polished casing stone, and abandoned the Great Pyramid to bats, rodents and rumor.
Nearly 100 years afterward a violent earthquake destroyed much of Cairo, and the remainder of the
casing stones were looted to rebuild homes and the mosques. The only stones remaining as evidence to the precision finish work were buried beneath the shifting desert sands around the base of the pyramid.
It became taboo to venture near the Great Pyramid and nearly a thousand years passed before inquisitive Europeans arrived with measuring tapes and sextants.
Napoleon conquered Egypt and brought his “savants” along. These bearded scholars started the specialized study of “Egyptology” and the even more specialized “pyramidology.” After Waterloo, it was the British scholars who tramped among the tombs and relics.
Of all the wonders of antiquity, nothing equals the scope and precision of the Great Pyramid. Scholars who note that its precise construction is matched by the geometrical and mathematical precision of its design are confounded because of the limits imposed upon their thinking by orthodox history.
A great controversy erupted in England over the Great Pyramid. It was never really resolved, but it died down in time with the tombic theory remaining the “acceptable” theory. It started in 1859 when a London editor, John Taylor, first noted the unusual angle of slope and discovered the “pi” analogy possibility.
The inference that mathematical precision believed to be beyond the ken of ancient Egyptians was embodied in the pyramid stirred a smoldering religious controversy into a glowing scientific-religious debate of national proportions.
A devout Presbyterian, Sir Piazzi Smyth, Astronomer Royal of Scotland, measured and studied every angle of the pyramid for 10 years, then publicly theorized that the Great Pyramid was “Divinely inspired to outline God’s plan for man’s history.”
The impetus for such a unique theory was Charles Darwin’s research and the theory of evolution. Darwinists were enjoying a new freedom from Church dogma and were loudly riding the shirttails of popular versions of his theory. Church leaders were dismayed. They wanted desperately to find some form of tangible evidence that God existed and Creation was fact.
It was during this period that certain fundamentalists argued that the devil created fossils and other evidences to confound mankind, and the Church had “proof” that Creation took place in 4004 B. C.
Piazzi Smyth noted two biblical passages: “There is an altar to the Lord in the midst of the land of Egypt,” from Isaiah; and “He set signs and wonders in the land of Egypt, even unto this day...” from Jeremiah.
Based upon his measurements, Smyth proposed that the Great Pyramid monumentalized the inch as the basic unit, and on a scale of a year of time for each inch, the passage system of the Great Pyramid outlined the major events of history, especially the birth of Jesus Christ and His crucifixion.
Though his evidence was incomplete it was shockingly credible. His Royal Academy colleagues called him the world’s biggest “pyramidiot” but were unable to refute his ideas.
Sir Flinders Petrie, the father of modern archeology, then visited the Great Pyramid and spent years in painstaking measurements. His ultimate conclusion was that Smyth erred, and if the Pyramid’s dimensions wrote a history—history was in error, too.
However, Petrie’s findings did not squelch the scientific controversy regarding the inch; it did cool the zealous religious fervor for insisting the pyramid contained “prophecy.”
In the midst of the controversy, a sober agnostic from Leeds who had time and money decided to settle the matter once and for all. David Davidson set out to disprove the notion that the ancient pyramid builders intended anything prophetic. He was an architect, structural engineer and astronomer; he had great respect for the pyramid builders, but disdained any notion of “Divinity.”
After 25 years of intensive research Davidson reconstructed the Pyramid in blueprint form and vindicated both Smyth and Petrie. He made such a thorough presentation that detractors from his viewpoint have no scientific grounds on which to disagree. Therefore the controversy was allowed to die quietly and few people today have ever heard of David Davidson.
The Pyramid Inch and the Year
In The Ultimate Frontier, Berkeley explained to Richard that the polar-diameter of Earth may be divided into five-hundred-million equal parts, and this small unit is the “Pyramid inch.” The polar-diameter inch is very close to the present day inch, being only 1/1000th smaller. The builders of the Great Pyramid used this P-inch as the basic unit of linear measurement. It has been demonstrated that the builders of the Stonehenge monument in England also used it, which is most likely the origin of today’s British inch.
Piazzi Smyth, the Astronomer Royal of Scotland in the late 19th century, surmised that the Great Pyramid’s design geometrically linked the polar-diameter inch and the year, thus providing a scale giving a distance-time relationship. Smyth was unable to prove his theory, but other scholars have.
Two exceptional 19th century astronomers and mathematicians demonstrated that the Pyramid-inch is 1/500,000,000th the polar-diameter of Earth and indeed very close to the modern inch in size. Sir John Herschel, Royal Astronomer of England, and the noted Abbe Moreaux of France agreed in separate studies of the polar-diameter. In fact, Moreaux said, “the British are quite right not to part with their archaic system of yards, feet and inches.” The French astronomer, who worked with the metric system, pointed out that the polar-diameter is a more constant quantity than a meridian from which the meter is derived. The meridian discrepancy is due to Earth not being a perfect sphere.
To devise such a precise unit of measure, the ancient Pyramid builders had to know as much about the size and shape of the earth as we know today. To illustrate the mathematical precision of the earth and its orbit, which is described precisely by the dimensions of the Great Pyramid, one needs only to learn that 100 million P-inches represents the exact length of arc described by Earth’s orbit during a 24-hour period. This may be a clue as to why many ancient texts “mysteriously” refer to the Pharaoh as “Lord of the orbit.”
Standing on the desert plateau today is the battered exterior of the Great Pyramid which has been vandalized, eroded and sand-scarred for more than 6,000 years. To obtain a concise measurement of the exterior as it was when first completed is impossible with measuring devices alone; however, because the construction was so precise, an architectural engineer was able to reconstruct it with mathematical exactness.
David Davidson blueprinted the Great Pyramid during 25 years of intense study. He painstakingly checked and rechecked the linear and angular relationships of the interior system of passages and chambers. For example, he noted the effect of subsidence and earthquakes on the huge granite blocks in the “King’s Chamber” and carefully measured to make sure his blueprints had each block in the precise position in-tended by the original design. The obvious geometrical relationships between the exterior dimensions and the interior dimensions arrested the engineer’s mind. Davidson reasoned that the designer of the Great Pyramid incorporated such geometrical precision purposely. Such precision, he told the scholars of his day, could not have been the result of chance.
Davidson’s reconstruction led him to make two important discoveries which helped him prove his thesis that there is indeed a “divine message” related by the dimensions of this “altar to the Lord in the midst of the land of Egypt.” Ironically, this is exactly what Davidson had set out to disprove.
Davidson discovered that the Great Pyramid, unlike all others, was designed and built with a “hollowing-in” feature; a slight indentation in the center of each face which is invisible to the human eye and prior to his discovery unknown to researchers. Shortly after Davidson announced this discovery to skeptical listeners, a British aircraft was flying over the Gizeh plateau and a photograph taken from the plane caught the sunlight striking the Great Pyramid at just the right angle to cast a shadow-line down the indentation—proving its existence.
The Latin poet Ausonius wrote of the “missing shadow” phenomenon of the Great Pyramid more than a thousand years ago: “The pyramid itself swallows the shadow born on its summit.” The hollowing-in feature insures a rapid disappearance of the shadow of the sunrise at the equinoxes. The Pyramid’s location on the 30th parallel and its peculiar angle of slope allows observers to note the equinoxes by the sun’s reflections.
Davidson’s other discovery was also effectively dramatized shortly after he announced his findings. Since the construction and design are so exact, Davidson reasoned there had to be a purpose in placing the entrance passage in the North face off to the east about 24 feet, Davidson noted that the passage system was offset from the east-west axis of the structure by exactly the same distance. The platform on which the missing apex stone would rest is short of the designed apex by the same factor—286.1022 P-inches. Davidson called this number the “displacement factor” and showed it to be a marvelous number. For example, when used in a mathematical formula for determining the rate of precession, a complicated astronomical phenomenon caused by the wobble in the earth’s axial rotation, the displacement factor and aspects of the interior geometry will give the precessional rate within a few seconds of arc to the rate figured by present day mathematicians.
After Davidson announced his research on the displacement factor, the British and Egyptian governments carried out an extensive survey of the Great Pyramid’s base perimeter. This 1925 survey started out with a clearing away of all the sand and rubble, then measuring as best they could from corner to corner.
Smyth and Petrie had calculated the base perimeter to be approximately 36,524 P-inches; Davidson’s reconstructed Pyramid figured to be precisely 36,524.2+ P-inches (they announced the figure in meters and it has been converted to P-inches). The orthodox Egyptologists heaved a sigh of relief—they felt this measurement ended the controversy.
And well it may have, had Davidson not quickly pointed out that the actual measurement was short of the “designed” measurement by precisely 286.1022 P-inches. Davidson termed this a “deliberate” or planned “error” on the builder’s part and stressed that it symbolized “man’s displacement from God’s plan.”
Regardless of the interpretive aspects of the factor, it is a remarkable mathematical factor when used with the interior geometry of the Great Pyramid, and the evidence strongly indicates it is a deliberately established factor.
Davidson then gave his conclusions regarding the chronological scale established by the geometry and dimensions of the structure. The inch is obviously the basic unit of measure and the design takes great pains to monumentalize both the inch and the year.
The “cubit” used by the ancient Hebrews and the “sacred cubit” used by the priests of Egypt are identical measures of 25 P-inches. Since the designed pyramid is 36,524.2 P-inches at the base perimeter, this means each side of the perfect square base is 365.242 cubits in length. This number of cubits matches the number of days in a solar year. However, a singular match-up can be considered coincidence, albeit a rare one, so the design takes all the coincidence factors away by incorporating two other known forms of the year.
The distance from the corner to the center of the hollowing-in feature and out to the far corner measures 365.247 cubits; matching the days in the sidereal or star time year. The distance from the corner, to the central hollowing-in point in the 19th course of masonry (the hollowing-in was from top to bottom as well as from side to side) and out to the far corner measures 365.997 cubits; matching the number of days in the anomalistic year, or the period of time from perihelion (closest to the sun) to perihelion.
It is obvious the inch and the year are the key to the mathematical message of the Great Pyramid. Inside the antechamber to the main chamber there is a granite leaf (the only carving within the structure) and on the leaf is a “bos” which sticks out from the leaf exactly one P-inch. The antechamber itself would exactly fit a circle with a circumference of 365.242 P-inches.
We have a scale—one P-inch equals one year. Now all we need is a starting point, an ending point, and ending points in between to describe definite dates. To give those dates meaning there should be an allegory or allusion. This, too, is included.
6000 Years of History in Geometry, Astronomy and Stone
The builders of the Great Pyramid had to have thorough knowledge of all the motions of Earth and its orbit in order to convey a message unequivocally. Then they had to convert this knowledge into a geometric analogy, and construct it precisely in stone.
Two exact measures taken from the earth and its orbit—the polar-diameter inch and the solar year—provide the time-distance scale. The next requirement included a means of describing the starting point, ending point and markers indicating specific points in time. The pyramid builders not only managed to in-corporate accurate markers, but they included a literary allegory giving the markers historical meaning.
In The Ultimate Frontier, Berkeley briefly explains to Richard the phenomenon of “precession” which is caused by the wobble in our planet’s axial spin, He points out that the precessional circuit is completed approximately every 26,000 years. The wobbling action causes a number of apparent changes in astronomical relationships that can be calculated with exactness. Astronomers of our civilization first calculated the “rate of precession” near the turn of the century. Though it is baffling to scholars of antiquity, it is clearly indicated that the builders of the Great Pyramid understood the “precessional circuit” as thoroughly as space scientists today.
Modern man could not have deciphered the message conveyed by the pyramid’s dimensions without knowledge of precession. The actual duration of a precessional cycle varies slightly with each year. The sum of the base diagonals of the Great Pyramid is 25,826.54 P-inches. The perimeter of the pyramid’s exterior at the level of the main chamber measures 25,826.54 P-inches. The chronological scale (one solar year = one P-inch) and the “displacement factor” give a mathematical formula which calculates 25,826.54 years as the period of precession for the year 1557 A .D. Modern calculations agree to within 7/100ths of a year.
The geometrical relationship between the interior and the exterior of the pyramid indicates that the period of time to be dealt with cannot exceed one-quarter the period of precession, or about 6,700 years.
It is interesting to note that Berkeley told Richard the Great Pyramid was completed about 4,700 B.C.—or just about one-quarter the period of precession ago. Berkeley also pointed out that the precessional circuit is the basis for calculating the astrological periods known as “ages.” By calculating the “equinoxes,” which are the crossing of imaginary lines in space—one indicating the path of the earth’s orbit, called the ecliptic, and the other indicating the celestial equator—one can determine that in the year 4,699 B.C., the meridian of the Great pyramid projected out into space to coincide with the crossing of the other imaginary lines at a point in space identified as the “Toe of Castor.” This is the dividing line between the constellations of Gemini and Taurus; thus the Great Pyramid was completed as we entered the “age of Taurus. There is no known significance in this, it is merely an interesting aside.
It is geometrically impossible to utilize the inch-year scale for a period of 6,700 years, or inches, within the passage and chamber system of the Great Pyramid. However, the builders narrowed the time span down further by incorporating calculations of another astronomical phenomenon. It is called the “longitude of perihelion.” Perihelion is the point closest to the sun in Earth’s elliptical orbit. Each year the line of longitude varies slightly at the point of perihelion and the complete 360-degree circuit is made in about 21,000 years. The longitude of perihelion was at zero degrees, or on the same meridian as the Great Pyramid, in the year 4043 B.C.
The angle of the exterior slope is an unusual 51 degrees, 51 minutes, 14.3 seconds, If this figure is doubled it is 103 degrees, 42 minutes, 28.6 seconds—and that is the exact longitude of perihelion in the year 2045 A.D. In the perihelion cycle, then, we trim the period of time down from roughly 6,700 years to the 6087-year period between 4043 B. C. and 2045 A.D.
Since our scale is one inch equals one year, we need a 6087-inch linear measure. There is no passageway that long, but there is a marker and a geometrical line made so obvious it was easily discovered and tested.
There is only one carving which appears to be ornamental in nature within the Great Pyramid. This is a bas-relief located on a granite sleeve or leaf jutting from wall to wall in an antechamber to the main chamber. The relief protrudes from the smooth granite leaf exactly one polar-diameter inch. Also, the exact center of the granite leaf is perfectly aligned with the floor line of the ascending passage. Using a drawing board, one may project the line of the ascending passage downward until it intersects with the projected line of the exterior slope, Now we have an exceptionally precise straight line from the point of intersection below the base of the pyramid to the center of the granite leaf which measures 6,000 Pinches; accurate to 1/1,000th of an inch, This has proven to mark the time between midnight of the autumnal equinox 3,999 B.C. and the autumnal equinox of 2,001 A.D.
The selection of 4,000 B.C. by modern researchers as the starting point was arbitrary because only vague indications exist that this is the correct year. However, 4,000 B.C. has proved accurate by correlation with historical prophecy. It should be pointed out that the year 4,000 B.C. is the starting year listed for a number of civilizations of antiquity, and is given as the date for the beginning of the people of Abraham.
The year 4,000 B.C. was momentous in Egyptian history and lore. Though it cannot be construed as an indication of the pyramid builder’s intent, there is an interesting astronomical occurrence to consider. The autumnal equinox marked the changing of the year from 4,000 B.C. to 3,999 B.C., and if an observer in Egypt were to peer into the heavens on that evening he would see the juncture of the ecliptic and celestial equator right in the center between the horns of Taurus, the bull. A full moon was also situated between the horns of Taurus on that evening, This is most likely the reason for the design of many headdresses worn by gods and pharaohs which were ornamented with a circle or globe between two horns.
We now have a starting point and ending point for our scalar chronology. Next we shall see how the junctures of the various passages and chambers correlate with historical occurrences; and the names given to these chambers and passages in ancient texts describe the nature of the occurrences.
The Great Pyramid’s Interior and Chronology
On the cover of this issue is a cutaway drawing of the Great Pyramid’s system of interior passages and chambers. You are looking through the Great Pyramid from the east.
There is no other interior design in the world like the one in this structure. The system of passages and chambers correspond symbolically to the various stages of development and growth of an individual as outlined in the ancient texts we now call “The Egyptian Books of the Dead.” In 1897 an Oxford scholar, W. Marsham Adams, interpreted the 189 chapters of hieroglyphic writings which had been found on various papyri and stone reliefs throughout the Nile valley. His interpretation was published in two books: House of Hidden Places, and Book of the Master. More recent students of antiquity have attempted to discredit Adams’ work and today the Book of the Dead, by Dr. E. A. Wallis Budge, bears no resemblance to Adams work.
The ancient texts name the various stages of each individuals’ life and at the same time serve as an analogy indicating the various stages of growth of our Western Civilizations.
On the diagram, note how the entrance passage slopes downward (an angle of slightly more than 26 degrees). It is given in the texts that the individual descends or loses his Egoic memory as he incarnates. The downward descent reaches a “gate of ascent,” and an individual may choose to elevate himself or to continue the descent. The upward path is difficult—symbolized by three huge granite blocks fitted perfectly into the ascending passageway. The blocks remain in place today as Arab workmen tunneled around them through the limestone when entry was forced about 820 A .D. Notice, too, that should the individual choose to continue the descent and not elevate himself, he winds up in the “chamber of Chaos” or “upside-down-ness.” The actual construction of this chamber is unique. The ceiling is smooth like a polished floor and the floor is rough and unfinished.
At the lower right of the diagram the projected lines are brought together to form the starting point for the inch-year scale beginning at midnight of the autumnal equinox 3999 B.C. Moving upwards along the angle of the ascending passage (exactly the same degree of slope as the descending angle) there are no cross references until the junction of the passages. The date determined by the inch-year scale (one polar diameter inch equals one solar year of 365.242 days) is 1486 B.C. Historians will disagree as to the significance of this date. Some contend it is the date for the Exodus, but it is more likely a date for Joseph’s entrance into Egypt. (This reporter’s hypothesis, not yet verified by exact measurement, is that the lower section prior to the granite plugs signifies the entry into Egypt by the Jews; the granite years symbolize the process of learning to be builders, and the end of the granite, which corresponds roughly to 1300 B. C. is the Exodus. This correlates with the date of Exodus as given in The Ultimate Frontier.)
The reader may recall that the starting date of 3999 B. C. is arbitrary, We are now afforded an opportunity to check the accuracy of this choice with accurate astronomical data. About halfway down the descending passage from the entrance to the gate of ascent is a double scored line carved with remarkable precision into the limestone. The scored line marks a right angle to the passageway. At one period in time, 2144 B. C., two important stars vectored precisely at this point on the Earth. The pole star then, Thubun in Alpha Draconis, pointed directly down the descending passageway, and Alcyone in the Pleiades, known to the ancients as the “foundation star” was in position to project the perfect right angle. Due to precession, this juncture cannot he made at any other time within a period of 26,000 years in either direction from midnight of the autumnal equinox in 2144 B. C.
Measuring on the inch-year scale, the scored line indeed matches the date in 2144 B. C.
As an individual may elevate himself according to the ancient texts, so, too did civilization during this period of time. The texts refer to this stretch of the passageway as “the hail of truth in darkness .” A visitor to the pyramid must crawl up this narrow passage until he reaches the juncture of the passage to the lower chamber, or Queen’s Chamber as it has been erroneously named. Ancient texts refer to this chamber as the “chamber of second birth or new birth.” The floor line of this chamber when projected to intersect the ascending passage floor marks a point in time coinciding with the year 4 B.C. Breaking the inch down into days the time coincides with October 4, 4 B.C., or the date of the birth of Jesus.
The next cross-reference indicated by the construction is the point where the narrow ascending passage opens into a huge, two-story high gallery. No longer does the visitor need to crawl in darkness—he has been reborn in a sense that his path is much brighter and easier. The texts called this grand gallery the “hail of truth in light.” in what must certainly be one of the most beautiful prophesies of all time, the point on the scalar chronology where this enlargement begins matches the date of April 7, 30 A.D. or the date Christ was crucified.
Now the individual may stride up the grand gallery until he reaches the level of the main chamber. The floor level of this “King’s Chamber” coincides with the 20th century. The ascending passage angle projects upward to end in the center of the bottom of the granite leaf—precisely 6,000 polar diameter inches from the starting point or September, 2001 A.D.
The builder’s design does not skip over our eventful 20th century—on the contrary, we are about to delve into a remarkable piece of communication. The construction design uses a magnified scale for the stonework representing the 20th century in order to see more clearly.
When one is driving in Illinois, for example, he uses a road map of the entire state to determine the best route over a long distance. However, when one reaches the city of Chicago he must turn his map over to the larger scale map of the city streets in order to pinpoint his location. The designers of the Great Pyramid brought the 20th century into focus in this manner.
20th Century As Seen By the Great Pyramid Builders
In the ascending passage along the inch-year scale the last obvious cross-reference was the point where the narrow passage opened into a huge gallery, about 25 feet high and seven feet wide. The cross-reference coincided with the date of Christ’s crucifixion.
The largest chamber is commonly called the “King’s Chamber” and a large granite sarcophagus is located at the eastern end. The dimensions of this sarcophagus have been found by researchers, principally Worth Smith, to match the dimensions of the Ark of the Covenant receptacle in Solomon’s Temple. It is known to the Brotherhoods that the Ark of the Covenant was housed in the Great Pyramid’s main chamber until moved by Moses at the time of the Exodus.
The allegory which gives meaning to the Pyramid’s dimensional message is found in W. Marsham Adams’ translation/interpretation of a series of ancient writings commonly called The Egyptian Book of the Dead. Adams called it the Book of the Master. The main floor level is considered the “temple” level of the Great Pyramid, so we may assume the ancient writings refer to this area when they state: “On the floor of the temple one marker is for 30 days.” Now that is an interesting statement since there are no carved nor otherwise obvious markers located anywhere inside the chambers. There is, however, a geometrically obvious marker—the Pyramid inch. Therefore, it is assumed that when the inch-year scale reaches the floor level of the main chamber the year is dropped and the scale is enlarged to one inch equaling 30 days, Applying this thesis we soon find our proof.
The inch-year scale determines that the floor level begins at a point in time matching August 2, 1909. With this date established as our starting point we move along the floor of the temple, seeking physical correspondences and meaningful allegory from the Book of the Master or ancient Egyptian texts.
The Book of the Master is an allegory for an individual’s lifetime as well as for the history of our present civilization. A visitor to the Great Pyramid having clamored over the “Great Step” stands before a wall of limestone blocks that force him to stoop to a crawling position in order to enter the antechamber. According to the ancient texts he is about to enter the “chamber of the triple veil.” The first veil is “conflict” or “great war.” Evidently, the texts allude to an individual’s inner conflicts at this point. Historically, however, the edge of this first low passage projects to a point on the floor that on the 30-day-per-inch scale coincides with the date of August 5, 1914. This is precisely the time when Great Britain declared war on Germany and World War I became an international conflict of drastic proportion.
The visitor may crawl along this first low passage for a few feet until he can once again stand upright in the antechamber. The name for this section, or “veil,” is “truce in chaos.” The coinciding date on the floor line is November 11, 1918—Armistice Day.
What an amazingly accurate forecast! The Great Pyramid was built at the dawning of the Age of Taurus, more than 6,000 years ago and the exact period of a great conflict, which set into motion many more important changes in civilization, was monumentalized in stone and named in text, There are those who claim that such measurements and the ancient allusion are coincidental and the persons who discovered this message were playing with numbers. The unit of measure has not been altered to suit any purpose of prophecy—the polar diameter inch remains one/500 millionth the polar diameter of Earth; the construction of the Great Pyramid’s interior has not been altered to match the established scale. However, the scale changes upon reaching the floor level, but only as indicated by ancient texts. Even if it is granted that the pinpoint prophecy of the great war is coincidental, what follows is beyond the realm of the mathematics of chance.
At the southern end of the antechamber, the visitor must again crawl to move into the main chamber. This is the final humiliation for the individual; the entry into the veil of final tribulation, according to the “Book of the Master.” The beginning date is May 29, 1928. On this day the world’s economic powers: England, France and the U.S. began the famous “Battle of the Gold Standard,” which brought about the great depression and the stock market crash of 1929. Historically speaking, there is no precise date for the end of the depression, but by mid-1936, the economic world was well on the road to recovery. The date coinciding with the end of this “third tribulation” and entrance into the main chamber, called “the hall of the judgment of nations” by the ancient texts, is September 16, 1936.
According to Brotherhood information, this is the date for the Biblical “sounding of the seventh trumpet.” It is the date when the Oldest Lesser Brotherhood was given charge over all the Brotherhoods for the purpose of coordinating the establishment of the Nation of God. The final phase of the 6,000-year plan began to be put into effect.
Shortly after entering the main chamber, there is another interesting date relative to the subterranean chamber of “upside downness” or “chamber of chaos” as it is called. A line projected upward along the south end of this chamber strikes a perpendicular to the temple floor coinciding with November 27, 1939.
On this date in Chicago a 12-year-old boy named Richard Kieninger stopped off at a school on his way to a movie. In the schoolroom, he met seven remarkable Beings and a Brother named Berkeley. Richard himself learned in 1971 that this date was marked in the Great Pyramid; he had been told only that the date of that meeting marked the “end of chaos.” In the structural allegory it is exactly that—the end of chaos.
As stated in The Ultimate Frontier the south wall of the King’s Chamber coincides with August 20, 1953, which marks the beginning of the Age of Aquarius.
The allegorical message apparently ends at this point, but one may measure the periphery of the main chamber and reach a final date of 2038 A.D. This date is strikingly close to the projected date for the culmination of the city of Stelle’s function in the formation of the Nation of God.
