The Revelation Of The Pyramids takes an in depth look into one of the seven wonders of the world, the Great Pyramids of Egypt. Mystery has surrounded these epic structures for centuries with theories varying from the scientific to the bizarre.
However with over thirty-seven years of in depth research taking in sites from China, Peru, Mexico and Egypt, one scientist has as at last managed first to understand and then to reveal what lies behind this greatest of archaeological mysteries: a message of paramount importance for all mankind, through time and space.
By the way John Anthony West has some of the BEST Doco's on ancient Egypt. I highly recomend them to anyone who is interested. Just search him up on you tube.
A guided tour with him is on my to do list.
I will link some vids later. Too sleepy....

Henge of the World
by Ralph Ellis
Were the Neolithic tribes simple hunter gatherer societies, or did they have a deeper understanding of our world. The world's largest Neolithic earthwork ring explained.
( From the Thoth Architect of the Universe)
The full moon rose sedately into the night sky, it bathed the Avebury henge in a pale luminous glow and the great monolithic stones threw translucent shadows out across the grass. The crisp night air was wet with dew and mist, the atmosphere was equally laden with expectation. Suddenly a ghostly figure stepped silently from behind one of the massive stones in the central ring, his head betraying the frightening outline of a wolf. The assembled masses on the great banks of the henge gave a muffled collective intake of breath.
A drum began a rhythmic beat, and the Shaman stepped softly from stone to stone in a circular dance, his feet stirring the few wisps of mist that clung to the long grass. The crowd too joined the chant, Bah!, Bah!, Bah!... The chant grew in confidence and pace, faster and faster and then, quite abruptly - he stopped. An eerie silence descended on the land once more, not a breath of wind stirred the night air. The Shaman pulled the heart of a bull out of a bag around his waist, it was fresh, dripping blood and gushing great clouds of steam into the night air. The Shaman slowly raised the heart up aloft, the blood dripping onto his mask and gave out a long and mournful cry to the heavens - aaaarrrrrooowwwwww! The crowd froze in fear. Far away, in the depths of the still night air, a lone wolf cried in return - aaarrroowwwww.
The type of portrayal above may be quite familiar for the Neolithic societies of North Western Europe, but it has been reproduced to illustrate a point. Why are we so comfortable with these images of Avebury and Stonehenge? Is it because these images are so alien to our modern culture that we can partition this era off, consign it to a barbarous past that has nothing to do with our modern lives? I suspect that this is part of the attraction. I would even go further and say that there are organisations in this world that would like to keep this idea going indefinitely, to keep us misinformed of our past. This may sound an odd thing to say, but come back to this section after reading the whole of this chapter, then read again the classical ideas on the rituals of the Avebury ring and see how primitive they really are.
So if the established concepts of Neolithic life are wrong, what are we to replace them with? How much did ancient man know of our world, how thorough was his educational system? These are the questions that we shall try to answer in the space of a few short pages and the answers that will emerge from this process will be quite astounding, yet quite difficult to dismiss. The starting point in this process was the great henges themselves. Like the great pyramids of Egypt, there have been many and varied ideas proposed as to the function of these amazing structures. Why did ancient man devote so much time and energy to their construction? If they were so important, as they evidently were, what was their true function? Just to brush off these questions with statements alluding to a 'religious and ritualistic function' is not an answer, it is a statement of ignorance. Ancient man knew why these monuments were built, so why don't we?
The answer to this is that perhaps we were not looking or understanding. We are trying to interpret these structures in our terms, to resolve their function within our established framework of history, religion and our position as masters of all knowledge. But perhaps we are wrong. Perhaps our concepts of our established history are based on phantom foundations, perhaps the concept of our chronological superiority in this world is unjustified. What if there was, long ago, a technically literate civilisation, one who designed and organised the construction of these magnificent monuments in both Wessex and Egypt. This may be a heretical proposal, but let us run with it and see what it will lead us to. What would a technical civilisation want to design into a megalithic monument?
