ANCIENT EGYPT 39,000 BCE The History, Technology, and Philosophy of Civilization X Edward F Malkowski
Traditional Egyptologists have long resisted the notion that the architectural achievements of the Ancient Egyptians required the existence of a much more sophisticated technology than would have existed at that time. Yet, no records exist explaining how, why or who built Egypt's megalithic monuments and statues. The ancient Egyptians did, however, record that their civilisation resided in the shadow of a kingdom of “gods” whose reign ended many thousands of years before their first dynasty. What was this Civilisation X that antiquity's most accomplished people revered as gods?
The recent discovery of a large stone at one of Egypt's oldest ruins presents physical evidence that clearly and distinctly shows the markings of a machining process far beyond the capabilities of the Ancient Egyptians. Likewise, experimental modeling of the Great Pyramid's subterranean chambers and passageways gives scientific evidence to further support the theory that the civilisation responsible for such magnificent monuments is much older than presently believed. ANCIENT EGYPT 39,000 BCE examines this evidence from historical and technical points of view, explaining who these prehistoric people were, what happened to them, why they built their civilisation out of granite and why they built a series of pyramids along the west bank of the Nile.
The mysterious fascination of Ancient Egypt has pervaded western culture for centuries which seems to search for it's own roots in the people of the Great River. Archaeological discoveries renewed interest in this fascinating civilisation as this deck beautifully illustrated by Silvana Alasia demonstrates.
In episode one of Adventures Unlimited's Ancient Technology series, David Hatcher Childress flies to Cairo where he teams up with British engineer Christopher Dunn. Together they explore the Giza area, going to ancient pyramid sites, underground catacombs and megalithic quarries not usually visited by tourists. Here they examine saw marks, advanced lifting and moving techniques found at the Giza Plateau, Abu Rawash, Abu Garab, and the underground catacombs of the Serapeum and other areas. Finally Dunn explains his theory of the Giza Power Plant and his view that the pyramids at Giza were originally part of a plan to drive the earth into harmony. A mind-blowing look at solid evidence for extraordinary ancient technology. Extra features. (dvam)
ATLANTIS AND THE TEN PLAGUES OF EGYPT* The Secret History Hidden in the Valley of the Kings Graham Phillips
Shows how a desecrated tomb in the Valley of the Kings holds the key to the true history of the destruction of Atlantis
• Reveals that Tomb 55 in the Valley of the Kings was designed not to keep intruders out, but to trap something inside
• Provides forensic evidence proving that the mask believed to be the face of Tutankhamun is actually that of his elder brother Smenkhkare
In Atlantis and the Ten Plagues of Egypt, Graham Phillips explores the excavation of a mysterious and ritually desecrated tomb in the Valley of the Kings, Tomb 55, which he contends holds the key to the true history of the destruction of Atlantis. Unlike other Egyptian tombs designed to keep intruders out, Tomb 55 was constructed to keep something imprisoned within, specifically Smenkhkare, the older brother of Tutankhamun who was deemed responsible for the ten plagues in Egyptian history, to prevent such tragedies from ever happening again. The forensic findings from this tomb coupled with compelling new evidence from the polar ice caps provide sensational evidence that the parting of the Red Sea, the deaths of the first born, and the other plagues that afflicted Egypt were all actual historical events.
Core samples from the polar ice caps indicate that a gigantic volcanic eruption took place in the eastern Mediterranean around the time of Amonhotep’s reign. Other research suggests this to have been the time of the eruption that destroyed the Greek island of Thera, one of the likely locations of Atlantis, and that the subsequent cataclysm may explain the unusual lack of resistance to the new religion installed by Amonhotep’s son, Akhenaten, when he took power several years later.
AWAKENING OSIRIS The Egyptian Book of the Dead Normandi Ellis
The Egyptian Book of the Dead is one of the oldest and greatest classics of Western spirituality. Until now, the available translations have treated these writings as historical curiosities with little relevance to our contemporary situation. This new version, made from the hieroglyphs, approaches the Book of the Dead as a profound spiritual text capable of speaking to us today. These writings suggest that the divine realm and the human realm are not altogether separate; they remind us that the natural world, and the substance of our lives, is fashioned from the stuff of the gods.
Devoted like an Egyptian scribe to the principle of "effective utterance," Normandi Ellis has produced a prose translation that reads like pure, diaphanous verse.
BECOMING OSIRIS The Ancient Egyptian Death Experience Stephane Rossini and Ruth Shumann-Antelme
An in-depth examination of the ancient Egyptian approach to death illustrated with Egyptian funerary art and its relevance to the modern near death experience. In THE BOOK OF DEAD the ancient Egyptians left humanity one of the most comprehensive looks at the death experience and the after life. Without sacrificing the rich complexity of pharaonic thought the authors provide an accessible thought provoking account of the Osirian odyssey essential for a full understanding of this ancient Egyptian view of death.
BEFORE THE PHARAOHS Egypts Mysterious Prehistory Edward F. Malkowski
In the late nineteenth century French explorer Augustus Le Plongeon after years of research in Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula concluded that the Mayan and Egyptian civilisations were related - as remnants of a once greater and highly sophisticated culture. The discoveries of modern researchers over the last two decades now support this once derided speculation with evidence revealing that the Sphinx is thousands of years older than Egyptologists have claimed that the pyramids were not tombs but geomechanical power plants and that the megaliths of the Nabta Playa reveal complex astronomical star maps that existed 4000 years before conventional historians deemed such knowledge possible. Much of the past support for prehistoric civilisation has relied on esoteric traditions and mythic narrative. Using hard scientific evidence from the fields of archaeology genetics engineering and geology as well as sacred and religious texts Malkowski shows that these mythic narratives are based on actual events and that a highly sophisticated civilisation did once exist prior to those of Egypt and Sumer. Tying its cataclysmic fall to the mysterious disappearance of Cro-Magnon culture BEFORE THE PHARAOHS offers a compelling new view of humanity's past.
BENEATH THE PYRAMIDS Egypt's Greatest Secret Uncovered Andrew Collins
Science and history writer, Andrew Collins, uncovers and explores, for the first time, catacombs, hewn chambers and cave tunnels that were first found in the 1800s but had subsequently been left unexplored and whose location was lost for 200 years.
Beneath the pyramids of Egypt lies a lost underworld of catacombs, hewn chambers and cave tunnels. They are alluded to in ancient texts and Arab legends, but have been left unexplored until today. They have now been rediscovered and investigated for the first time by science and history writer, Andrew Collins. What exactly does this subterranean realm tell us about the pyramids, their relationship to the stars and the mythical origins of Egyptian civilisation?

BREAKING THE MIRROR OF HEAVEN The Conspiracy to Suppress the Voice of Ancient Egypt Robert Bauval and Ahmed Osman
Called the “Mirror of Heaven” by Hermes-Thoth and regarded as the birthplace of civilization, science, religion, and magic, Egypt has ignited the imagination of all who come in contact with it since ancient times—from Pythagoras and Plato to Alexander the Great and Napoleon to modern Egyptologists the world over. Yet, despite this pre-eminence in the collective mind, Egypt has suffered considerable destruction over the centuries. Even before the burning of the Great Library at Alexandria, the land of the pharaohs was pillaged by its own people. With the arrival of foreign rulers, both Arabic and European, the destruction and thievery continued along with suppression of ancient knowledge as some rulers sought to cleanse Egypt of its “pagan” past.
Exploring the many cycles of destruction and suppression in Egypt as well as moments of salvation, such as the first registered excavations by Auguste Mariette, the authors investigate the many conquerors of Egypt through the millennia as well as what has happened to famous artifacts such as the Rosetta Stone. They reveal how the degradation of monuments, theft of relics, and censorship of ancient teachings continue to this day. Exposing recent cover-ups during the tenure of Antiquities Minister Zahi Hawass, they explain how new discoveries at Giza were closed to further research. They show how Napoleon, through his invasion, wanted to revive ancient Egyptian wisdom and art because of its many connections to Freemasonry.
Clearing cultural and historical distortions, the authors reveal the long-hidden and persecuted voice of ancient Egypt and call for the return of Egypt to its rightful place as “the Mother of Nations” and “the Mirror of Heaven.”
· Details the vandalism of Egyptian antiquities and suppression of ancient knowledge under foreign rulers who sought to cleanse Egypt of its "pagan" past · Reveals the real reason behind Napoleon's invasion of Egypt: Freemasonry · Shows how the censorship of nonofficial Egyptology as well as new archaeological discoveries continued under Antiquities Minister Zahi Hawass
EDGAR CAYCES EGYPT Psychic Revelations on the Most Fascinating Civilisation Ever Known Editors of the A.R.E Press
Edgar Cayce gave 14000 readings over his lifetime. A large number of those readings were about Ancient Egypt. The information in these readings gives us great insight into who the ancient people of Egypt were how they lived, fought, ruled and developed as one of the most incredible civilisations that ever walked the planet. Some of the most intriguing mysteries in the world surround Egypt and its ancient times. Many of these mysteries are addressed by Edgar Cayce in this collection of his actual words on the fascinating subject of Egypt.
EGYPT CHILD OF ATLANTIS A Radical Interpretation of the Origins of Civilisation John Gordon
This book asserts that the civilisation of Egypt existed far longer than is commonly believed and was structured around forms of cosmic knowledge that involved astronomical and geographical competence that modern science has yet to attain. Building on evidence of the prehistoric existence of an ancient world-wide religious culture that extended all the way to Tibet and China John Gordon traces the origins of Egyptian culture to the legendary lost continent of Atlantis. Based on an understanding of the Precession of the Equinoxes and its inextricable connection to human evolution and divine purpose he concludes that the sacred science of the ancient Egyptians was the legacy left to them by fallen star gods conscious divine beings who founded Atlantis. Egyptologists contend that ancient Egypt was a civilisation obsessed with death that its greatest monuments were tombs and that its history dates back only some 5000 years. In contrast Gordon suggests this civilisation to have been 50000 years older. Furthermore he contends that Egypt was originally not a society obsessed with death but one that saw in life and death an initiatory transition. This idea was followed by the entire population which was attuned to the form and nature of cosmic evolution at all levels of being from the highest to the most mundane. This is a new edition of LAND OF THE FALLEN STAR GODS.
EXODUS REALITY Unearthing the Real History of Moses, Identifying the Pharaohs, and Examining the Exodus from Egypt Scott Alan Roberts and John Ward
In this groundbreaking work, the authors re-examine humanity's most enduring account of bondage, emancipation, and freedom. The Great Exodus is the story of how one man, empowered by divine epiphany, brought the mighty ancient kingdom of Egypt to its knees. For thousands of years, this story has bolstered the faithful of three major religions, though little historical data confirms it. So the question must be asked: Did it ever really happen? Roberts, a historian and theologian, and Ward, an archaeologist, Egyptologist, and anthropologist, dig deeply into historical records to answer the most vexing questions: · Is there any historical evidence for the biblical account of the Great Exodus? · Was Moses a real person? · Where is the Biblical Mount Sinai? · What is the Ark of the Covenant, and where did it come from? · Why did Moses write about the Serpent and the Nephilim? · Is there a Templar and Masonic connection to the events and personages in the story?
The authors present two opposing, yet strangely interlaced historical accounts for the Exodus, naming the historical pharaohs and surprising candidates for the historical Moses. While Roberts presents an account that finds its moorings in the efficacy of scriptural historicity, Ward presents a new and completely unique theory for the Exodus and its cast of characters.
FROM LIGHT INTO DARKNESS The Evolution of Religion in Ancient Egypt Stephen S. Mehler
Building on the esoteric information first revealed in Land of Osiris, this exciting book presents more of Abd'El Hakim's oral traditions, with radical new interpretations of how religion evolved in prehistoric and dynastic Khemit, or Egypt. Have popular modern religions developed out of practices in ancient Egypt? Did religion in Egypt represent only a shadow of the spiritual practices of prehistoric people? Have the Western Mystery Schools such as the Rosicrucian Order evolved from these ancient systems? Author Mehler explores the teachings of the King Akhenaten and the real Moses, the true identity of the Hyksos, and Akhenaten's connections to The Exodus, Judaism and the Rosicrucian Order. Here for the first time in the West, are the spiritual teachings of the ancient Khemitians, the foundation for the coming new cycle of consciousness -- The Awakening.
GIZA POWER PLANT Technologies of Ancient Egypt Christopher Dunn
Did a highly advanced civilisation exist in prehistory? Is the Giza Pyramid a remnant of their technology? Then what was the power source that fueled such a civilisation? The technology of harmonic resonance claims renowned master craftsman and engineer Christopher Dunn.
In a brilliant piece of reverse engineering based on twenty years of research Dunn reveals that the Great Pyramid of Giza was actually a large acoustical device! By its size and dimensions this crystal edifice created a harmonic resonance with the Earth and converted Earth's vibrational energies to microwave radiation. The author shows how the pyramid's numerous chambers and passageways were positioned with deliberate precision to maximise its acoustical qualities. This may be the same technology discovered by Nikola Tesla and the solution to our own clean energy needs.
GODS OF EDEN Egypts Lost Legacy and the Genesis of Civilisation Andrew Collins
A groundbreaking historical documentation of the secret history of pre-Pharonic Egypt and the race of angels that built it.
•By the author of From the Ashes of Angels and Gateway to Atlantis (more than 30,000 copies sold in the United Kingdom). •Unlocks the secrets of how the Great Pyramids and the Sphinx were built. •Explains the traces left by the race of Elder gods that founded ancient Egypt through ancient texts of the Hall of Records. •Proves the foundations of ancient astronomy 10,000 years ago.
Hidden deep below Egypt's Giza plateau is perhaps the key to unlocking the mysteries of the Great Pyramid, one of the seven wonders of the world. Built using a technology unequalled even today, the ancient Egyptians claimed they inherited their advanced culture from a race of Elder gods who lived during a previous age known as Zep Tepi, the First Time.
In his earlier companion book From the Ashes of Angels, renowned historical writer Andrew Collins provided historical and scientific evidence showing how these Elder gods, who were the flesh and blood members of a race of fallen angels, founded ancient Egypt. Now, in Gods of Eden, he describes the remarkable achievements of their culture.
Assembling clues from archaeology, mythology, and religion, Collins shows us how this great society mastered acoustic technology and employed the use of sound to raise heavy objects into the air and pierce holes through solid rock. It was with this technology that they were able to construct gigantic structures that have marveled adventurers and archaeologists worldwide. With findings based on more than 20 years of research and scholarship, Collins reveals the fascinating historical destiny of this culture of fallen angels and the imprints and legacies they left behind at the genesis of civilization.
