From Atlantis to the Sphinx , Michael A. Cremo and Richard L. The Search for Atlantis all reflect this concern. But by the same token, it is equally necessary as in the age of the Sphinx to defer matters pertaining to weathering and aging to climatologists and geologists respectively.

But to what extent any of them truly represent the intention of the builders has still yet to be established with any degree of certainty. In addition to the various theses proposed in support of earlier dates for such monuments as the Sphinx and the Pyramids there are writings that hint of even greater antiquity - as discussed by H. Blavatsky in the Secret Doctrine. Here is a source that provides numerous references and rare material that might aid the quest for understanding with or without the acceptance of hoary antiquity also evident in the work.

But if we do reject the latter possibility out of hand, then we are still left with the uncomfortable conclusion that the ancients builders must have been motivated by something of unprecedented magnitude to have embarked on such massive enterprises. This problem underlies most if not all unconventional approaches to the enigmas of our past. In fact, towards the end of the book the latter presented the following hypothetical scenario: Of course there would at first be much panic and despair.

Nevertheless - if there were sufficient advance warning - steps would be taken to ensure that there would be some survivors and that some of what was most valuable in our scientific knowledge would be preserved for the benefit of future generations. Ideally, the scheme should work both ways with the structures located in two separate geographical regions. And if there were indeed real concerns that the pillar of brick might be destroyed by a flood, then it would also be reasonable to suppose that it might have been built on high ground, constructed inland, or both.

Lastly, there would also be a reciprocal requirement for each monument to point to the location of the other. From this viewpoint the reference to Adam in the above passage supplies a vital clue which suggests that the pillar of bricks might still exist and even where it might be located, i.

One of the themes that repeatedly surfaces throughout discussions concerning ancient wisdom is that a sound knowledge of geography is inherent in the locations of many of the ancient monuments. Given that the island of Sri Lanka Ceylon was in any case strategically located on the trading routes between the Middle and the Far East, knowledge of the latter in Ancient Egypt is not out of the question even from a conventional viewpoint. This renowned phenomenon has long been observed and honoured by Buddhists, Moslems, Christians and others alike, each within their own specific frames of reference.

Further north, although still in the interior of Sri Lanka lies the ancient and sacred city of Anuraphapura with its buddhist temples and ancient monuments. Roland Silva discussed the restoration of three large towers there in a recent televison documentary "Ancient Stones of Sri Lanka," Marathon Productions, Silva carefully and helpfully recounted that: But when I compared the measured sizes of the monuments, they were only 25 meters short of the three pyramids of Egypt - with just one difference - that the pyramids were of stone, and that these were the largest monuments of brick of the World and Mankind.

The occurrence of a second major pyramid raises the intriguing possibility that there might be some substance to the following comment by H. Blavatsky in the Secret Doctrine Vol. Should this pair of pyramids be constructed of the same materials as the others, or was there a concept of massive redundancy that included further diversity? Because if it did, then it makes the locations of the other two slightly less problematic.

In other words, we might perhaps search for a a Pyramid of Rock and b a Pyramid of Earth. While not ignoring the structure at Teotihucan Mexico we might then tentatively associate the Pyramid of Rock with pyramid-shaped Mt Huyama, the adjacent companion to Machu Pichu Peru in South America. The Pyramid of Earth on the other hand raises some intriguing possibilities, for there are two major structures in the United States that might indeed fit the bill - Cahokia in Illinois, and the Emerald Mount along the Mississippi-Natchez Parkway.

Jacobs states in a private communication that in terms of size the most obvious choice would be: In volume it surpasses all," although he also cautions that there are other sites to be considered in the Americas, e. It is a terraced mound and has some of the greatest stones ever placed by humans. It was at the center of Tawantinsuyu, the land of the four directions, the Inca realm. It is truly immense Pachacamac is also worthy of consideration. It is a converted hill and very immense also.

But if there was indeed some grand scheme, then who is to really know on what scale it was conceived, where it was to be carried out and how long it was intended to run. The occasion of this was because he saw in his sleep that the whole earth was turned over, with the inhabitants of it lying upon their faces and stars falling down and striking one another with a terrible noise And he awakened with great fear, and assembled the chief priests of all the provinces of Egypt He related the whole matter to them and they took the altitude of the stars, and made their prognostication, and they foretold of a deluge.

The king said, will it come to our country? They answered yes, and will destroy it. And there remained a certain number of years to come, and he commanded in the mean space to build the pyramids And he engraved in these Pyramids all things that were told by wise men, as also all profound sciences - the science of astrology, and of Arithmecke, and of Geometry, and of Physicke. All this may be interpreted by him that knows their characters and language.

Taken at their face value, the message of both of these mysteries seems crystal clear: Could this be so? The secret of what happened was never entirely forgotten because a record of those distant First Times was preserved, until the coming of the Spaniards, in the sacred texts of the original Popol Vuh.

The original book, written long ago, existed - but now its sight is hidden to the searcher and to the thinker Strangely enough, it was the City of the Sun in Egypt, Innu, known by the Greeks as Heliopolis - which was regarded throughout the dynastic period as the source and centre of high wisdom handed down to mortal men from the fabled First Time of the gods.

It was at Heliopolis that the Pyramid Texts were collated, and it was the Heliopolitan priesthood, or rather Heliopolitan cult - that had custody of the monuments of the Giza necropolis. As a corollorary, the monuments might also provide the much needed reason for their actual construction in terms of the event itself.

On the other hand, if we consider that the monuments were largely the product of unthinkable toil, extremes of hardship and the very best that the minds of those times could muster, then we most assuredly need to determine exactly what it was that motivated them, how well the matter was understood, and how much of it they managed to pass down to us. Thus we arrive back at the original question only to add three more.

What could it have been that precipitated such an extreme response? Was it indeed the result of some major catastrophe - fire, flood, earthquakes, or all three, and did this generate an overall scheme to investigate the matter, to delineate it as best as possible, and also to pass the details on?

And, covering all eventualities, what would have been the plan for the worst-case scenario? Embracing all possible scenarios, it seems that whatever was to be done would have to meet a number of critical base requirements. First of all, the structures would have to be made earthquake proof; fireproof, and flood proof. And allowing that even this might not be sufficient at any one location, a strong measure of redundancy would also have to be factored into the scheme.

Next, all structures and information-bearing media might in the worst case scenario have to last for centuries, if not millenia. Thus the scheme should exclude the use of materials that are perishable, portable, useful, or valuable, while rock, stone and clay are plentiful and for the most part also durable. As a rider it would also be advisable to utilize heavy or highly customized components to render them immovable, basically useless elsewhere and earthquake proof to boot.

The massive, fitted irregular stone walls at Machu Pichu, Tiahuanaco, and Cuzco come to mind here, as do the huge stone blocks utilized in ancient Egypt and the enormous stones utilized in Neolithic monuments from the Mediterranean to Northern Europe. The same argument concerning longevity would also apply to the erection of luni-solar monuments in austere and inhospitable regions e. And if these construction projects could only be accomplished by prodigious effort, then this too might serve the vital purpose of generating the question that still concerns us today: The above simply represent some of the physical requirements; far more complex would be the social organization, planning, and integral construction of the desired information, which would appear to require a strong focus on the Sun and the Moon, and hence relatively advanced knowledge of mathematics and astronomy.

To cope with this kind of specialized information there would be a need for education, training, continuity, and yet perhaps allowances to offset a cataclysmic loss of information during the event itself. Which means that each structure might also have take on the function of a self-starter, i.

To facilitate this it might have been deemed necessary to provide alternative approaches allied to common themes, still redundancy per se, but with elements of connectivity nonetheless.

The most obvious, it would seem, would be the emphasis on the extremal movements of the Sun, captured and delineated by stone structures, with parallels perhaps, in both written and oral traditions. In the former case this would obviate a need to provide multiple documentation and vital attendant keys. Although not necessarily for this precise reason, the Rosetta Stone and the triple texts carved on a precipitous rock-face copied by Rawlinson come to mind here, i.

Perhaps the worst case scenario would embrace the possibility of a near complete loss of previous knowledge, which would lead to an initial dependancy on oral traditions, both those that survived and those that included the event and whatever mythos grew up around it.

Or alternatively, information-loaded myths and religious beliefs could be premanufactured to carry at least part of the message.

What exactly would be the overall purpose? This is hard to say, but remaining with the notion of a highly competent but not necessarily technologically advanced civilization, one could theorize that it might have been to preserve or pass as much as was known about the event to both warn and enable future generations to explore the matter more thoroughly.

As for general education and training, this would represent another enormous task, which again might involve oral and written traditions, shielded perhaps by secrecy yet augmented by multiple redundancy. For it is possible in images to survey paradigms, and through the former to pass to the latter. Protagoras dB emphases supplied] As for the scope of the scheme, in technical terms, to increase the odds of the message getting through it would be preferrable to make it global in extent to disperse the information as wide as possible.

If such an expansion was to be carried out, then a sea-going capability would also become a necessity, but generally speaking, it is not thought that the Egyptians or indeed anyone possessed any highly developed maritime expertise in the earlier periods.

Another explanation might be that there was an intentional out-migration from the mediterranean by way of the Iberian Peninsula to France with further expansions northward into the British Isles, all possibly in response to the worst-case scenario, real or anticipated. There are, of course, many variants to such themes, with the present treatment necessarily confined to what might best be termed the Western European component; from the same viewpoint out-migrations for a worst-case scenario might reasonably have included other groups moving northward into Central and Eastern Europe and eastward to India and beyond.

Then again, in the context of Britain the work at the major neolithic regions around Carnac in Northern France may have required additional refinement and that this may have been an additional reason for the extensive work carried out further north. A difficult thesis, perhaps, but a planned, sequential out-migration to the West and to the North might nevertheless shed some light on a most unusual claim made in The Scottish Declaration of Independence of , i.

Moreover, it cannot be denied that the Egyptians in particular were more than familiar with both practices, and on a far greater scale at that. Ancient Hermes - of great importance to Alchemy -was many things, but not least of all, among his various names he was also the messenger of the Gods.

Moreover, his "Emerald Green Tablet" is fortunately one of the better-known Alchemical and Hermetical works that have come down to us. As for Hermes himself, Jack Lindsay notes that: He was the first also to observe the orderly arrangement of the stars and the harmony of musical sounds and their nature He also made a lyre and gave it 3 strings, imitating the seasons of the year; for he adopted 3 tones, a high, a low, and a medium: The Greeks were also taught by him the expounding, hermenia, of their thoughts, and for this reason he was named Hermes.

In a word, Osiris, taking him for his priestly scribe, communicated with him on every matter and used his counsel above that of all others. Iamblichos and Galen rationalized the legends.

As the second number is divisible by , the number of years in the Sothic period of the Egyptian calendar, it seems that some astronomic calculation intruded Of the igneous gods Hermes has left a hundred works, of the etherial another hundred, and of the celestial a thousand.

If there was, then who is to know on what scale it was conceived, how long it was meant to run, and whether it was indeed intended to be truly global in its extent.
