Let us then return to the Great Pyramid. Why was it built in the first place?

According to the ancient Egyptian sources the pyramids were built to reflect the primeval mound that had emerged from the expanse of waters. But then, what is the “primeval mound” and what were “the waters” that it emerged from and what was the reason for building such a monument in honor of this mound? To answer these questions is as easy as adding one plus one once you have accepted that the original rise of civilization and the erection of pyramids were indeed reflections of a shift in consciousness. The mound is simply the new global mind that was emerging from the Earth.

Looked upon from a satellite the Giza pyramid can for instance be seen to be eight-sided (or “eight-partitioned” to use the terminology and layout of the Mayan cosmograms, Fig 1). We also know that the pyramid is directed towards true north with an astonishing accuracy, deviating with only four minutes of the arc from this direction. This was the very direction that the Mayan inscription talks about as the direction of the Tree of Life and the origin of the eight-partitioning. In my book I also go into detail about how the geometry of this pyramid is connected to the global mind. It seems like the Great Pyramid was a representation of the new global mind described by the Maya but built in stone by the Egyptians.

This pyramid was built around 2600 BC, but according to many archeologists the Giza plateau began to be prepared for this already around 3200 BC and thus seems to have been a reflection of the downloading of a mind structured by straight lines. But what about the ancient Egyptian inscriptions that spoke of the pyramids as primeval mounds emerging from the expanse of waters? What kind of water were they talking about and how does it connect to the shift in consciousness?

To answer this we may first note that similarly to the eight Mayan and Aztec deities in Figure 1, the Old Kingdom of Egypt (especially in the city of Hermopolis) honored a set of eight gods referred to as the Ogdoad, which consisted of four male and female pairs: Nu and Naunet, Amun and Amaunet, Kuk and Kauket, Huh and Hauhet. These were associated with frogs and serpents, respectively and symbolized the chaos of the primordial waters and were most likely parallels to the pairs we saw in figure 1.

I will not go into too much depth about what “water” means here, but we may note that some ancient creation stories speak of water as the substrate of creation. Water usually means waves and may very well have symbolized the chaotic quantum field of waves that dominated the world until structure came into existence in the form of the grid of straight and perpendicular lines that was activated in 3115 BC. The primeval mound with its eight-partitioning then emerged from the floating state of consciousness that the world, and all its people, had been in before this point in time. Is it then so surprising that the Egyptians decided to build a large-scale pyramid to honor this structured new reality that indeed was what had created their civilization? The pyramids of Egypt, and the megaliths in other places of the world from the same time, are thus monuments in stone that were built to reflect the new global grid, which changed them forever.

The Flood Story as a Reflection of a Shift in Consciousness

However, the same dichotomy between water and rectilinear structure as in the Egyptian description of the pyramids also strongly rings a bell of Noah’s Ark and the Biblical Flood story. The literature about this Flood is immense and many different viewpoints about it have been expounded if nothing else because flood stories abound from cultures around the world.

I have visited the Bosnian pyramids, but as all mainstream arheologists and many alternative such as Robert Schoch and Graham Hancock I do not think that the evidence is there that they would be manmade. This should be the first thing to establish before you draw any concusion from it. The cities outside of Gujarat have by Indian archeologists been estimated to be about 5000 years old and part of the Indus Valley civilization. Yet, of course, it is almost impossible to date archeological remains under water and it can never be used as an argument in this kind of a context.

You did your best with the information you had, but that's really incomplete. Don't you know about the Bosnian pyramids, they are 35000 years old and also facing thru North. And not to forget all the cities that are at the bottom of the Indian ocean, build rectangular and they are consumed by the ocean at the end of the ice age 12000 years ago. So civilization that build like this are much older.

As always John your insights are refreshing, fascinating and move those of us with expectant, curious consciousness a bit closer to waking up which is what it's all about or at least it is in part. I have some questions perhaps you've pondered and already have some answers. Do these time waves reset the human beings living through them to zero point consciousness or is the act of seeking greater awareness about consciousness and achieving it at any level assist the individual as the time wave moves through us or are we doomed to forget and repeat it all again? There may be no way to answer such a question as fact but I thought you might have pondered it and may have insights as to how the time wave affects the people of the era, after all we on the cusp of a new time wave right now are we not? Our holographic mind/brain creates our reality which the time wave operates through and ultimately our world is an illusion of sorts, so perhaps it is the soul/spirit that the time waves programming is fed through? Perhaps our physical form is reflecting and/or projecting the time waves agenda through various forms much like Noah's Ark and the great flood being a kind of consciousness wipe and/or reset of the human/earth operating system? Kind of like we reset a computer by installing a new operating system thereby creating a new reality we can experience through our computer? So our reality,as you discovered the Mayan Calendar and other ancient history reveals is conducted through the invisible Quantum realms or spiritual realms which I believe are one and the same thing as the true source and it can be calculated, observed and perhaps even changed if we could grasp it all? I realize that's a much bigger discussion, but how does the time wave effect those who are grasping its existence, could the invisible Quantum/spiritual realms be aware of those waking up and alter the programming agenda for those people? Could this be a source of mysteries where people and civilizations seem to disappear during these time wave periods, like the Mayans? Am I off in my perceptions of the time waves purpose or effects in asking such questions?
I realize your books are a comprehensive, scientific basis about the topic, and I realize how huge a topic it is, but I'd love to know your insights about the practical effects of the waves on a human being living through it?I haven't read your second book yet but it's on my agenda to read very soon. I loved your first book as at that time I felt quite alone in my views and I felt I'd found a kindred spirit and I wasn't alone in the universe! I do not have my radio show any longer but I continue to follow your work and enjoy your articles immensely, keep up the great work!

Hello Janet,

Good to hear from you. I find your comments very interesting and feel that you should maybe develop them in an article yourself.

No mention of the Bosnian pyramid. They are now pointing to 12000 years old. The sphinx in the Giza Plateau exhibits undeniable evidence of water erosion. There hasn’t been water in the Giza Plateau for 12000 years.  The pyramids themselves exhibit salt water erosion. Personally I believe the pyramids are much older than we’re being led to believe. These monuments are remnants from a pre-deluvian civilization.

An ancient Hindu book gives detailed instructions for the construction of an aircraft –ages before the Wright brothers. Where did such knowledge come from?
