But I do know a thing or two about ancient Egypt. I'll list a few items, if you're interested. No, I don't think that aliens built the pyramids in Egypt - at Giza or anywhere else. However, the ancient Egyptians wrote that the design of the Step pyramid "fell from the heavens at Saqqara". It includes an underground complex of 3.5 miles of tunnels and rooms, dug through solid rock. Massive! Thus, we do have an alien connection to Egyptian pyramids. Of the 138, or so, pyramids in Egypt, not one has contained an original, royal mummy. "Original" is the key word. The design of the Giza pyramid complex is astounding in its complexity, with dozens of amazing items. For example, a Phi spiral (the Golden Spiral) of the Great Pyramid ends exactly at the "sarcophagus" in the King's Chamber. And the dimensions of the King's Chamber itself is in the Golden Ratio. The Great Pyramid was known as "Akhet Khufu", in ancient times, which can be translated as "Protector from the Floods". Today, the pyramid is known as "Khufu's Pyramid" or "The Great Pyramid", but the Egyptologists might have it backwards, with King Khufu named for "protection", and having nothing to do with the pyramid. His full name was "Khnum Khufu", which means "the god Khnum protects me". Calling it "Khufu's Pyramid" is like saying that Julius Caesar invented the Caesar salad because they both contain the word "Caesar", or that George Washington invented the washing machine because "washing" is in both phrases. I don't think so... It's apparently just a coincidence that part of Khufu's name is included in the ancient name for the Great Pyramid. The so-called "Solar Boats" buried next to the Great Pyramid are apparently real boats - river-ready. One was excavated in the 1950s and put on display, and it contains all the things a real boat would need, including waterproofing, boat fenders, different types of wood, etc. As such, it gives some credence to the pyramid as some kind of "protector from the floods", just as they said. The so-called "sarcophagus" in the Great Pyramid is actually a seed bed - called an "Osiris Bed", very popular in ancient Egypt. A sarcophagus must have the name of the deceased on its outside so the soul can find its body. Some even have eyes painted on the outside so the body or soul can see out. The one in the Great Pyramid is completely barren of any markings, and would have terminated the after-life of the King, with the King's soul searching in vain for its coffin and body so it could rest. A coffin for a king without his name on it would have been treason and murder. This was no tomb. None of them were built as tombs. Mummies found in them were later "intrusive burials". An "Osiris Bed" (seed bed) could also be termed an "Orion Bed" since they referred to Orion as Osiris (at least, the Greeks did). The Giza pyramids are laid out in the shape of "Orion's Belt" in the constellation of Orion. Thus, we have an "Orion Bed" in the Great Pyramid, although the Egyptians didn't call it that. Thus, the seed bed (Orion Bed) fits with the layout of the Giza pyramids (Orion's Belt). It wasn't intended for death, but to represent life. The mainstream Egyptologists have it backwards because they didn't do their homework, and looked only for mundane explanations for things. The so-called "Giza necropolis" is nothing of the sort. It represents life, regeneration, and a new beginning. Royalty was probably buried underground, or possibly also in caves - not in pyramids. King Tut was buried underground. "Egypt" is a Greek word. The ancient Egyptian name for Egypt is "Kemet" (the land of black dirt) and also "Ta-meri" (the beloved land). The ancient Egyptians might have come from Ireland, and some ancient Egyptians are buried in Ireland with graves which can still be seen today. Hair analysis and other evidence points to the Egyptians as being unique, compared with their neighbors. Khufu's mother was a redhead. For more clues to the purpose of the pyramids, look underground. Zahi Hawass has been doing it in the Giza area since at least 2008, but he's not talking. Dave Morton Listen to 'Strange Days...
