Ancient Egypt Enter Hermes Trismegistus aka Ham It is alleged that after the Deluge, the Atlantean Ark

was transported by survivors to Egypt where it is now hidden in the Kings Chamber in the Great Pyramid. This so-called Atlantean Ark of the Covenant will, according to Kabbalist legend, one day levitate the missing capstone to the top of the Pyramid!! When the massive structure was first constructed, the final portion to be levitated into place was the gleaming gold and crystal capstone containing the original Ark of the Covenant, brought from Atlantis. [Atlantis is a parallel grid program running at the same time as our reality. If you connect with it - your soul is experiencing in both realities at the same time.] This Ark and capstone graced the very summit of Knut [the Great Pyramid]. Once this floating capstone was so placed, the Great Ones created several lesser Arks. The voltage of a second Ark was integrated into the structure of the open granite sarcophagus in the Kings Chamber. Since granite is saturated with minute crystals, it was not difficult to charge the initiatory coffer with incredible cosmic force. [The Ark - in this instance is an energy generator for the EM program]. Hence the uninitiated unprotected sons of Earth were not permitted to touch the Ark because of its radiating voltage, placed there by generated cosmic rays. The priests who had charge of it, called the Arkites, wore protective garments. But they were themselves charged with cosmic power. (The Ark of the Covenant) So the search for the Ark of the Covenant and the quest for the Holy Grail are really the search for the lost Ark of Atlantis which, according to this account, will function as a super duper flux capacitor and levitate the missing Capstone onto the Great Pyramid of Egypt! This lying wonder will supposedly connect mankind with the lost civilization of Atlantis. As explained by Ellie Crystal, Of course, gold is highly conductive, and the gold plating must have been instrumental in the functioning of the Ark as a machine. The superconductive properties of the gold in the Ark of the Covenant are the subject of Laurence Gardners book, Lost Secrets of the Sacred Ark: Amazing Revelations of the Incredible Power of Gold. Gardner correlates the power of the Ark to the teleportation of the pharaohs in the chambers of the Egyptian pyramids to the star Sirius.

From the royal tombs of pharaonic Egypt, to the laboratories of modern science, comes the extraordinary account of gravity defiance and teleportation in the ancient world. The Book of the Dead refers to a hyper-dimensional realm called the Field of Mfkzt, which is now determined as a superconductive energy field of high-spin metallurgy. Liaising with modern physicists, Laurence Gardner has ascertained that mfkzt (known today as monatomic gold) was the secret of the pharaohs rite of passage to the Afterlife, and was directly associated with the pyramids and the biblical Ark of the Covenant, as revealed by inscriptions at the Sinai mountain temple of Moses... In the field of quantum mechanics, NASA scientists have recently confirmed that matter can indeed be in two places at once. It is now an established fact that, through quantum entanglement, particles millions of light-years apart can be connected without physical contact. Space-time can now be manipulated; teleportation is becoming a reality; gravity-resistant material is now heralded for air transport, and virtual science has led to a greater understanding of hyperdimensional existence. In Lost Secrets of the Sacred Ark, Laurence Gardner reveals that the keys to all this are: (a) Mfkzt - referred to by the Institute of Advanced Studies as exotic monatomic matter, and (b) the amazing technology of Superconductivity - acclaimed by the Center for Advanced Study as the most remarkable physical property in the universe.

How the Most Powerful Nation on Earth Beckons the Evil One

By Donna Anderson
If you have read Apollyon Rising 2012: The Lost Symbol Found and the Final Mystery of the Great Seal Revealed by Dr. Thomas R. Horn, then by now you have learned an important secret concerning the capital city of the United States. According to the worlds foremost authoritiesincluding Robert Hieronimus, United States official records, and even Freemason scholarsWashington DC was designed as a symbol of the Rosicrucian dream shared by its builders: that America would become the New Atlantis and eventually lead the world into a restored Golden Age of Osiris. This mostly unfamiliar fact is what legendary Freemason, Manly P. Hall, called "the secret destiny of America." It is a vision mirrored in the design of the streets, government buildings, and other artifacts important to the founding of the United States, including the Great Seal, where the phrase Novus Ordo Seclorum is prominent. In his second inaugural address, George W. Bush said of this phrase that when the founders of America placed it on the Great Seal, "They were acting on an ancient hope that is meant to be fulfilled."

As Dr. Horn points out, novus ordo seclorum is derived from the prophecies of the Cumaean Sibyl, a prophetess of Apollo (Apollo is the Greek version of the Egyptian god Osiris) who predicted the return of this deity at a future date, when men would be rejoined by the gods. President Bush, in his official speech of record, said this scenario is "an ancient hope [plan, scheme] that is meant to be fulfilled" [emphasis added]. Horn further notes how this "god" is specifically identified in the Bible as the spirit that will inhabit the Antichrist. In other words, unknown to most Americans, the Great Seal of their country heralds an ancient prophecy of the coming Man of Sin, presumably in the year 2012 (youll have to read Apollyon Rising 2012 to understand how the year 2012 is connected to this subject). Dr. Horn has been on a whirlwind tour since his new books release, doing as many as eight television and radio shows per day. In addition to nationally syndicated news and top-ten talk shows, he has been interviewed by United States congressmen, U.S. senators, and even 33rd-Degree Freemasons, none of whom, according to the publisher, have refuted his findings or conclusions. During research for the book (which hit #1 the day of its release), Dr. Horn traveled to Washington DC, where he met with Masons at the House of the Temple, the headquarters of the Supreme Council of the Scottish Rite. Horn says these men were very cordial and mostly responsive to his questions, even confirming his understanding of the influence of Freemasonry in American history. Only when he pressed one of them about a ritual called the Raising Ceremony (the raising of Osiris from the deada.k.a. Hiram Abiff), which is conducted in the Temple Room on the third floor of the building, did these Masons become evasive and visibly uncomfortable. The reason for this, according to Horn, is that in addition to the Raising Ceremony being conducted when members reach the 33rd Degree of Scottish Rite Freemasonry, this strange ceremonial is performed without public knowledge in the Temple Room at the inauguration of every U.S. president. Why? Because deep esoteric meaning behind Egyptian and Rosicrucian magic that was incorporated in the rites and rituals of Freemasonry holds that the spirit of Osiris can be raised from the underworld and "installed" (for want of a better term) in the reigning king or president. According to Horn, this is why the U.S. Capitol Dome is laid out so as to face the Obelisk known as the Washington Monument, as well as other puzzling architecture in Government Center. Horn explains in Apollyon Rising 2012: Unrecognized by the vast majority of peoples around the world is the greatest conspiracy of all time, sitting right out in the open in Washington DC and at the Vatican. It is an ancient, magical, talismanic diagramthe Lost Symbolbased on the history and cult of Isis, Osiris, Horus, and the prophecy of the deitys return. The primeval concept was designed in antiquity for the express purpose of regeneration, resurrection, and apotheosis, for deity incarnation from the underworld to earths surface through union of the respective figuresthe Dome (ancient structural representation of the womb of Isis) and the Obelisk (ancient representation of the erect male phallus of Osiris). In ancient times, the Obelisk represented the god Osiris "missing" male organ, which Isis was not able to find after her husband/brother was slain and chopped into fourteen pieces by Seth. Isis replaced the missing organ with an Obelisk and magically impregnated herself with Horus, the resurrected Osiris. This legend formed the core of Egyptian cosmology and was fantastically venerated on the most imposing scale throughout all of Egypt by towering Obelisks, including at Karnak where the upright Obelisks (of Osiris) were "vitalized" or "stimulated" from the energy of the masturbatory Sun god Ra shining down upon them. Modern people, especially in America, may view these symbols as profane or pornographic, but they were in fact ritualized objects the ancients believed could produce tangible reactions, properties, or "manifestations" within the material world. The Obelisk and Dome as imitations of the deities male and female reproductive organs could, through government representation, invoke into existence the being or beings Washington Dome facing Obelisk space

Vatican Dome facing Obelisk

symbolized by them. This is why inside the temple or Dome, temple prostitutes representing the human manifestation of the goddess were also available for ritual sex as a form of imitative magic Through such imitative sex, the Dome and Obelisk became "energy receivers" capable of assimilating Ras essence from the rays of the sun, which in turn drew forth the "seed" of the underworld Osiris. The seed of the dead deity would, according to the supernaturalism, transmit upward from out of the underworld through the base (testes) of the Obelisk and magically ejaculate from the towers head into the womb (Dome) of Isis. In this way, Osiris could be "born again" or reincarnated as Horus over and over. In Washington, the Obelisk built by Freemasons and dedicated to Americas first president stands near the west end of the National Mall. It is the tallest Obelisk of its kind in the world, at 6,660 inches high (555 feet) and 666 inches wide (55.5 feet) along each side at the base. In Egypt, where raising Osiris to life through these magical constructs was perfected, Pharaoh served as the "fit extension" for the reborn god to take residence in as the "sex act" was ritualized at the site of the largest religious structure ever builtthe temple of Amun-Ra at Karnak where Pharaoh became the receptacle of the spirit of Osiris during the festival of Opet. The festival was held at the temple of Luxor, where the Pharaoh entered the holy womb-temple beyond the Obelisk and was transmogrified into the living deity, the son of Amun-Ra and Osiris. From then forward, Pharaoh was considered the incarnation of the god Horus (resurrected Osiris) during his lifetime, and in death experienced apotheosis again, becoming Osiris in the underworld, the dying and resurrecting god, a cycle repeated with every newly appointed king. Thus Pharaoh wasjust as the god ciphered on the Great Seal of the United States will bethe son and spiritual incarnation of the Supreme Deity. While revelations such as those above have spawned significant controversy following the release of Apollyon Rising 2012, they are only the tip of the iceberg, says Horn. "Obviously there is never enough time as a guest on a radio or television show to get into the fullest details," he told us on the phone. "But we are currently finishing up a special six-hour audio series on the RNN network that should be available sometime in February. During these recorded hours, we will be covering in greater detail the True Lost Symbol, which I believe Dan Brown understood but for some reason chose not to reveal in his latest novel. What we will make known is going to shock some people, and the information will be as well-documented as the research in Apollyon Rising 2012." Horn says he is doing the special six-hour audio series to provide additional information not contained inApollyon Rising 2012 because the publisher was inundated over the last month with requests from readers for more information regarding a particular section in the book that briefly mentions a "Magic Binding Square" in the base of the Washington Monument.

"There is a Bible that is magically bound inside this square in Washington," says Horn. "It is the same Bible Dan Brown called the Lost Symbol. But this Bible is only a small partalbeit a very important partof the complete schematic of the Lost Symbol Diagram. When the entire picture is viewed as it was intended to beall of the symbols and structures in Government Center as a single portraiture, as well as why they were designed and laid out the way they arewhat emerges is the True Lost Symbol, an elaborate alchemical construct that can only be rightly understood within the historical meaning of the symbolism." And what is that? Horn says if the DC diagram is interpreted based on the classical and fixed meaning of the combined symbols and beliefs of the designers, not only did the metaphysicians among Americas founders who had control of the capitals layout plan a city in honor of the return of Apollo/Osiris and the dawn of his new Golden Pagan Age (the Sibyls prophecy on the Great Seal), but the blueprint in DC and the rituals conducted by Freemasons, both modern and historic, illustrate a high degree of operational magic intended to bring the prophecy about. The sole purpose of the rituals and these constructs is to raise the spirit of Osiris from the underworld into human form. This incarnation of Osiris is parodied in the House of the Temple (Heredom) during changes in U.S. presidents, says Horn, just as they were in the ancient Egyptian ritual of raising Osiris into Pharaoh. But the ritual in DC is rehearsed in anticipation of a greater moment in time, when the literal, physical return of the entity Apollo/Osiris will give birth to the novus ordo seclorum. "Think of the rituals in the House of the Temple as a warm-up for Antichrists actual Second Coming," adds Horn. To assure that the arrival of Apollo/Osiris will not be impeded by the influence of Christianitywhich so many of Americas citizens have been devoted to since the countrys foundingthe "Lost Symbol" Bible was placed in a Magic Binding Square inside the "testes" of the DC Obelisk of Osiris (Washington Monument). According to the occultism, this binding utility is meant to restrain the Bibles influence while allowing the seed of Osiris to materialize. The actual measurements and design of the Washington Monument support Dr. Horns findings, as the graphics on this page illustrate. Further evidence, says Horn, is that these same symbols were faithfully reproduced at the House of the Temple. This includes the 13-stepped, uncapped pyramid (like the one on the Great Seal and the pyramidion on top of the Washington Obelisk made of 13-rows of marble hidden beneath aluminium sheeting) that rests atop the House of the Temple, and a Magic Binding Square with the same numerical values as the Washington Obelisk. The Magic Square

can be seen in the skylight above the Temple Room, which intentionally hovers over where the Raising of Osiris Ceremony is performed. The importance of these specific symbols and their numerological properties duplicated at the House of the Temple cannot be overemphasized, according to Horn. In addition to the 13-stepped uncapped pyramid and the magic square, the House of the Temple was placed 13 blocks North of the White House, there are 33 columns surrounding the building, and each is 33 feet high. The building's address also contains the number 33. "When you look at the DC layout with an understanding of ancient Babylonian, Assyrian, Egyptian, Greek, Kabbalistic, and Rosicrucian magic, and how the pagans used vertical and horizontal positioning of their structures, streets, temples, symbols, and lines to represent the supernatural connection between heavenly [vertical] and earthly [horizontal] powers, the entire scene in Washington not only becomes transparent, but reveals volumes. "For instance, note how the White House is positioned so that a direct vertical line from the House of the Temple bypasses the edge of it to connect to the Osirian Washington Monument. This illustrates that, while the president in the White House has an earthly [horizontal] role to play, the supernatural administration of the will of the godsthat is, the vertical connection between heaven and earthemanates through the Supreme Mother Lodge. It is here that "The Raising Ceremony" is performed, which brings forth the seed of Osiris through the stem of the phallic Washington Monument, that is in turn ejected laterally into the womb of Isis, the Capitol Dome, where earthly leaders are conceived to carry out the will of the gods upon earth. This is also where the deitys fleshly representatives can themselves someday reach apotheosis and become gods, as depicted in the scene of George Washington overhead and in the gnosticism of Dan Browns book, Freemasonic belief, and so on. "If youve read my book, Apollyon Rising 2012, then you understand that this is why presidents are inaugurated there, as well as why they stand at the Domewhich the founding designers admitted was a religious Temple based on Freemasonry and devotion to Osirisfacing the Obelisk whenever they give speeches that will affect the administration of the gods on earth. To stand at the Dome and face the Obelisk is a public act of respect, recognition, honor, subservience to the powers historically represented by these symbolsIsis, Osiris, and Apollo. "But in the new audio series we are working on now, we go deeper, uncovering the historical importance of the Magic Square, how it worked, how it was used by the founders, Freemasons, and Rosicrucians in tandem with other grimories such as the Solomon Key and the Lesser Key of Solomon, which was so important to them. We will discuss the 72 pentagrams at the base of the Apotheosis of Washington in the Capitol Dome, and how they were and are used by Freemason gnostics to control the 72 kosmokrators over earth. We will reveal why the 36-cubed Magic Squares numerology111, 555, and 666, which binds the Bible in the base of the Washington Obeliskis repeated in the skylight in the House of the Temple above Rising above the altar in the House of the Temple is the vast 36-panelled Magic Square above which the Raising of Osiris Ceremony is performed. Amulets known as "Sigilla Solis" or "the sun seal" were/are used by metaphysicians in tandem with the Magic Square, the Solomon Key, and the Seal of Solomon to bind/release/control these powers of heaven and hell (36 Above / 36 Below = 72 angels/demons/gods), the total of whom are represented by the 72 pentagrams in the Washington Dome binding utility. The importance of this symbolism is so important, the builders of the Washington Monument specifically waited 36 years to place the Pyramid Capstone upon it.

72 pentagrams bind / control the demons that fill the pagan heaven Washington rises into from within the DC belly of Isis. space

which the Raising Ceremony is performed. By the Lodges own admission, their 36-cubed skylight symbolizes the Vault of Heaven and is a stylized Magic Square of the Sun God [Apollo/Osiris] used for binding and loosing the supernatural presence. The skylight Magic Square represents the celestial influences, while the square at the Washington Obelisk represents the earthly or underworldly powers. When these two counts of 36 are joined, the complete 72 supernatural agents (36+36=72) within their occult system are recognized. We will even point out how Obama, like George Bush before him, sent the appropriate signal to those who were meant to understand it, when he acknowledged this mystical value 72, saying he would complete his first 100 days in 72 days. And on the 73rd day, I will rest." It All Comes Down to a Prophecy on the Great Seal In Apollyon Rising 2012, Dr. Horn illustrates how each of these symbols in DC, those in Government Center and at the Heredom, plus the symbols and mottoes on the Great Seal form a supernatural symmetry that invokes the coming of Apollo/Osiris. One of the most enlightening authentications he provides from the seal is how novus ordo seclorum ("a new order of the ages") was adapted by Charles Thompson in 1782 when designing it. According to the official record, Thomsona friend of the Masons and great supporter of Benjamin Franklins American Philosophical Societycreated the phrase from a prophetic line in Virgils Eclogue IV: Magnus ab integro seclorum nascitur ordo (Virgils Eclogue IV, line 5), the interpretation of the original Latin being, "And the majestic roll of circling centuries begins anew." This is from the Sibyls prophecy concerning the return of Apollo, where it says: Now the last age by Cumaes Sibyl sung Has come and gone, and the majestic roll Of circling centuries begins anew: Justice returns, returns old Saturns reign, With a new breed of men sent down from heaven. Only do thou, at the boys birth in whom The iron shall cease, the golden race arise, Befriend him, chaste Lucina; tis thine own Apollo reigns. He shall receive the life of gods, and see Heroes with gods commingling, and himself Be seen of them, and with his fathers worth Reign oer a world. Assume thy greatness, for the time draws nigh, Dear child of gods, great progeny of Jove [Jupiter/Zeus]! See how it tottersthe worlds orbed might, Earth, and wide ocean, and the vault profound, All, see, enraptured of the coming time! According to the Cumaean Sibyl whose prophecy formed the novus ordo seclorum, the New Pagan Golden Age begins when the "son" of promise arrives on earthApollo/Osiris incarnate. Dr. Horn says to understand why such a fanciful prophecy about Apollo, son of Jupiter, returning to earth should be important to you, in ancient literature, Jupiter was the Roman replacement of Yahweh as the greatest of the godsa "counter-Yahweh." His son Apollo is a replacement of Jesus, a "counter-Jesus." In the New Testament, the identity of this god Apollo is the same spiritverified by the same namethat will inhabit the political leader of the endtimes novus ordo seclorum. According to several key verses in the Bible, the Antichrist will be the progeny or incarnation of the ancient spirit, Apollo. Second Thessalonians 2:3 warns: "Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition [Apoleia; Apollyon, Apollo]." Revelation 17:8 also directly ties the coming of Antichrist with Apollo, revealing that the Beast shall ascend from the bottomless pit and enter him: The Beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the Bottomless Pit, and go into perdition [Apolia, Apollo]: and they that dwell on the Earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the Book of Life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the Beast that was, and is not, and yet is.

Pinto, celebrated researcher David Flynn, and others. You can receive 3 free books by pre-ordering the series now. Click the ad below to learn more.

Will the Egyptians scrap the millennium ceremony at the Giza Pyramids? By Robert G. Bauval Amid accusation of 'Zionist' plots and 'Masonic' skullduggery, the Egyptian government is half minded to canceling the placing of a golden capstone on top of the Great Pyramid on the eve of the new millennium. It all began, strangely enough, in Paris in May 1998 when, after a golden capstone was ceremoniously placed on top of the Egyptian obelisk which stands at the Place de la Concorde, the Egyptian Minister of Culture, Farouk Hosni, announced that a similar ceremony would take place at the Great Pyramid of Giza at midnight on the 31st December 1999: "We cannot rebuild the pyramids stone by stone, so we have chosen a symbolic event like the ancient Egyptians did when they used to cap obelisks like what the French did at the Place de la Concorde". Then in early October 1998, the minister announced that he had commissioned French composer Jean-Michel Jarre to organize an all-night opera for this event. Details were then released in due course by the official Egyptian Tourist Authorities. They announced that Jarre would compose a 12-hours opera titled "The Twelve Dream of the Sun" for the sum of 10 million US dollars and that, "At midnight a helicopter will fly into the site and, hovering in a starburst of lasers and spotlights, will place a gigantic gilded capstone atop the Great Pyramid --all to the accompaniment of what is expected to be an unprecedented Jarre crescendo of electronic music. The gold cap, approximately 28 feet high (about the size of a two-story house) is being especially constructed to protect the pyramid structure. In place, it will catch the first light of the new millennium as the sun rises over Egypt. Capping pyramids with gold and timing important events to the setting and rising sun are very much part of the ancient Egyptian pharoanic tradition, making this piece of Jarre theatre particularly meaningful." It appears that the idea originated with Dr. Zahi Hawass, Under-secretary of State for the Giza Monuments. Apparently Hawass had made a recent discovery at Abusir near Giza, where he unearthed two limestone blocks with ancient inscriptions and drawings depicting workers moving a golden capstone for a royal pyramid amid scenes of dancing and celebrations. Hawass suggested to his superior, culture minister Farouk Hosni, that this was the ideal way that Egypt should celebrate the millennium. Jean-Michel Jarre proposed that 3 million people should be allowed to attend the event. The Egyptian authorities, however, stipulated a limit of 250,000 for 'security reasons'. Huge promotional

events were organised in various capitals of the Western world, including New York, Los Angeles, Sydney and various cities in Europe. Preparations then began for a huge stage in the desert south of the Great Pyramid, intended to have seating capacity for 25 000 people at the price of $ 400 per ticket. Cheaper tickets were also sold for 'standing' places. All was apparently going to plan until September 1999, when senior member of the Egyptian Parliament began to complaint of the costs and that in December was also the religious month of Ramadan, when all devout Muslims have to fast from dawn to dusk and foreigners in Egypt are asked to refrain from drinking alcohol or eating in public areas during the hours of fasting. To counteract such criticism, culture minister Farouk Hosni stated that a ban would be placed on alcohol during the celebrations and that no music would be played till after the official breaking of fasting was announced. To add fuel to this political fire, the radical Egyptian press, notably the newspaper Al Shaab (The People) found out that Jean-Michel Jarre intended to project the so-called 'eye of Horus' on the Great Pyramid with laser lights, and immediately denounced the organisers of staging a 'Zionist' and 'Masonic' stunt. The Al Shaab claimed that the 'eye in the pyramid' blatantly evoked the well-known symbol of Freemasonry which can be seen on the US one-dollar bill. These accusations were hotly denied by Farouk Hosni and Zahi Hawass. "The suggestion is groundless", said Hawass." The celebration has nothing to do with Masonic beliefs. The design on the US dollar is a faulty imitation of the Pyramids of the Middle Kingdom." The Americans have been paying particular attention to the proposed millennium ceremony at Giza, with dozen of guided tours already fully booked by US and Egyptian travel agents. Others will watch the event on television with over sixty major networks already signed up to broadcast by satellite the placing of the golden capstone on top of the Great Pyramid 'live' to channels all over the world. "I will wait in front of the TV to see this great moment. It is one in a lifetime. I am counting the days!" Said Julie Holmes, a lawyer from Los Angeles. A high profile group in Washington DC calling itself The Millennium Society, with members such as ex-White House official, Edward McNally, and a list of guests including Ronald Reagan, Mikhail Gorbachev, Deng Xiaoping, Bill Clinton, Bruce Springsteen, Elizabeth Taylor and Nelson Mandela apparently will, "attend the World Millennium Charity Celebration, the 'Celebration of Civilisation' to welcome the Year 2000 at the Great Pyramid of Cheops and 23 satellite locations on New Year's Eve 1999The Great Pyramid of Giza,

Egypt, will be the cornerstone site of the World Millennium Celebration, and sanctioned events will be held at selected locations around the world. These celebrations will be linked to create a round-the-globe, round the clock welcome to the Year 2000." Adding to the growing hype is another strange twist involving the 'prophecies' made by American Psychic Edgar Cayce also known as the 'Sleeping Prophet'. Cayce, who died in 1945, foretold the placing of a gilded capstone on the Great Pyramid which, according to him, would act as a 'symbol' for the rediscovery of the legendary 'Hall of Records of Atlantis' under the Sphinx and the second coming of Christ: "The apex, the crown or apex (or capstone) was of metal; that was to be indestructible, being of copper, brass, gold with other alloys it became very fitting that there should be the crowning or placing of this 'symbol of the records' by one who represent the old and the new Hence there has arisen from this ceremony many of the things that may be seen as present the sounding of the New Year 1998 from the death of the Son of Man" Oddly, Cayce also associates the event with the establishment of a sort of New World order based on Masonic principles: "For with those changes that will be wrought, Americanism with the universal thought that is expressed and manifest in the Brotherhood of man into group thought as expressed in the Masonic Order, will be the eventual rule in the settlement of affairs in the world. Not that the world is to become a Masonic Order, but the principle that are embraced in the same will be the basis upon which the new order of peace is to be established" Even more odd, perhaps, is the bizarre claim by Cayce that Jesus and John the Baptist (the patron saint of Freemasons) "took those last of the Brotherhood degrees" in the Great Pyramid of Giza. The Edgar Cayce Foundation has, since at least 1973, been involved in various expeditions at Giza to find the 'Hall of Records'. Two of its senior members, Dr. Joseph Schor and Mr. Joseph Jahoda, cause a huge controversy in 1996 when, under the cover of a license to conduct a general survey of Giza to find and repair faults and chasms under the bedrock, they extended their mandate and explored the ground under the Sphinx and claimed to have located a large man-made cavity under the paws at precisely the place Edgar Cayce had indicated. In August 1999 during a conference at the Edgar Cayce Foundation, Dr. Zahi Hawass announced the release of a new license to Joe Schor to conduct more radar soundings to find the Hall of Records under the Sphinx. He also announced that a small trap door

at the end of a narrow tunnel inside the Great Pyramid, which was discovered by a German team in 1993 using a mechanised robot, will be opened early next year by the National Geographic team. Unconfirmed reports state that the Schor expedition planned to be at Giza on the 7th December 1999 to start their search with hopes that the Egyptian authorities will allow them to 'go further' if the radar results prove to be conclusive. Over the years much controversy and rumours has surrounded the precise relationship of the Edgar Cayce Foundation and the Egyptian Antiquities Organisation. Other than the fact that the Edgar Cayce Foundation promotes psychic beliefs and Biblical prophecies of the Second Coming of Christ, the finding of the Hall of Records and the lost continents of Atlantis, a much more down to earth controversy has been generated in an official biography of Edgar Cayce's eldest son, Hugh Lynn, where it is alleged that the latter was responsible in some ways for arranging for the university education of two senior officials involved with the Giza monuments. Edgar Cayce is also known to have envisaged in his trance sessions (called 'readings') the establishment of a new world order based on Masonic ideologies for the next millennium and somehow connected to the 'missing' capstone of the Great Pyramid and the return of the Christ. Whether it is anything to do with this or rather the recent announcement that an 'eye of Horus' would be projected on the Great Pyramid during the millennium celebrations is not clear, but in November 1999 the radical Egyptian press began to make open accusations of "Zionist" and "Masonic" plots, claiming that the combination of the golden capstone with the 'eye' symbol, which also appears on the US one-dollar bill, evoked Freemasonic ideologies. This symbol is also seen on the Great Seal of the United States of America which many believe to be Masonic. In early December the Egyptian authorities showed signs of caving in by threatening to scrap the golden capstone for the Great Pyramid. A face saving decision has been deferred to a 'scientific committee' who will have to approve or reject the scheme. It does seem extraordinary, however, that at this 11th hour with thousands of visitors already booked on flights and at hotels in Cairo and with dozens of TV networks geared to broadcast the event 'live' to all parts of the world, that the Egyptians are now speculating such a move. With less than two weeks to go to the 31st December, such a move would be disastrous not only for the tourist authorities but for Dr. Hawass and those who conceived the event. Also Dr. Zahi Hawass has very recently announced that the capstone, which apparently is made of an 8 m high metal frame, will not be covered in gold sheets but in copper, a rather poor replacement for such an event. Furthermore Dr. Hawass confusingly stated that "we cannot put it up with a helicopter because it will hurt the pyramid. Therefore if we find out that that putting this capstone will hurt the pyramid, then, we will not do it." It is very hard to see how a light metal frame lowered

gently on the summit of the 6 million tons pyramid could 'hurt' it. It would be like placing a feather on an elephant's back; and even harder to see how else Dr. Hawass proposes to take the capstone up the 200 plus courses of the Great Pyramid to a height of 145 meters above ground level. Anyone who has climbed the Great Pyramid will know that this cannot be an easy task. Also missing the point, Dr. Hawass also denied that the capstone has anything to do with 'some societies', meaning Freemasonry. The point is not whether the decision to place the capstone has anything to do with the Brotherhood or any other 'society' but rather that the very act of placing it and the alleged projection of the 'eye of Horus' on the monument evokes Masonic ideologies and principles. As yet no official announcement has been made by the Egyptian State Information Service to cancel this event, and it is so far presumed that they will still go ahead. For scrapping the capstone ceremony would almost certainly be a serious blow to the credibility of those who promoted the idea in the first place. It would also generate a backlash from the thousands of visitors who have already paid hefty prices for airline tickets and hotels in order to witness the event on location; and greatly disappoint the millions of viewers around the world who prepared to watch it on television. It seems that it is not the 6 million tons stone pyramid that is at risk of being 'hurt' but the Egyptians' reputation for the flop of the millennium. The eyes of the world are watching.
