The Great Pyramid of Cheops built
4,500 years ago for
King Khu-fu in the 4th Dynasty, near Cairo, Egypt. The three
pyramids on the Giza plateau seen from across the Nile. Cheops
smaller than Kephren with the white Tura limestone cap because
Kephren is on higher
ground. The third smaller to the left are Mykerinos and the two
other smallest were for the
wife and daughter of King Khu-fu.

"Doors" 1 and 2 are in the southern shaft rising from the
Queenís Chamber on the left
of the above diagram.
The most recently discovered "Door 3" is
on the northern shaft rising from
the same chamber.
Both Door 1 and
Door 3 have copper pins,
staples or handles.
Door 1 and Door 3
also block the two respective shafts at approximately the same
distance from the Queenís Chamber: 210 feet.
Door 2 is seven inches beyond Door 1.
The actual path to Door 3
is now known to have three turns in it
to get past the Grand Gallery.
No one yet knows what is behind
Door 2 and Door 3 or what the

narrow shafts and little blocks might
October 12, 2002 Athens, New York - In
1957, a brilliant analysis of Egyptian architecture was published by
philosopher Schwaller de Lubicz in a 3-volume book entitled,
Temple of Man, after his fifteen years of painstaking measurement
work at Luxor and other Egyptian sacred sites. The miraculous
pyramid and temple structures were, for de Lubicz, the end result of
evolved consciousness applying the universeís rules of sacred
geometry and Law of One in which "as above, so below" provided an
architectural blueprint for the soul/spiritís evolution toward
De Lubiczís groundbreaking work was in French and not read by most
English-speaking people until writer and independent Egyptologist,
John Anthony West, translated and synthesized De Lubiczís theories
in Johnís book,
Serpent In The Sky, published in 1993. Now, at a
time when serious war threatens between the United States and Iraq
and even safe travel in Egypt might be halted, John has produced a
6-part DVD and CD entitled Magical Egypt that takes the viewer
inside temples and pyramids to see the secret and sacred science of
the ancients through the eyes and mind of Schwaller de Lubicz.
With Johnís extensive experience in decades of travel and research
in Egypt ≠ including his own groundbreaking geological research of
the Sphinx that lead to the hypothesis that it was weathered by
water erosion more than 10,000 years ago ≠ I wanted to find out what
John thinks about the newly discovered little doors, or blocks,
inside the 8-inch-diameter "air shafts or star channels" of the
great Cheops Pyramid that have baffled archaeologists for decades.
His first response surprised me: that the narrow channels might not
simply be aimed at stars, but at star resonances.
"The figure is from the second golden
shrine in the Tomb of Tutankhamen.
It is one of a row of identical mummiform figures, part of a complex
enigmatic funerary test. But however puzzling the text and the
reliefs, the astrological significance
of this drawing cannot be misunderstood. Rays of force or energy
connect the consciousness
of the human individual and the stars;..."

Ancient Egypt and Mysterious Egypt:
"ITíS INTRIGUING TO CONTEMPLATE THAT
CHEOPS AND ALL THE OTHER PYRAMIDS MIGHT IN FACT BE MACHINES, A
TECHNOLOGY USED TO GATHER THE FREQUENCIES OF STAR LIGHT?
Yeah, or something of that sort. With Cheops, it might not be
star light, but star resonances.
My guess would be that the narrow channels are somehow meant to
resonate with the stars. In other words, itís resonating stellar
energy. Now, of course, this stellar energy canít be measured,
but there are a lot of things that canít be measured.
They knew what they were doing. We have to guess what they were
doing. But when they are going to that much trouble to do
something or another with that level of expertise, theyíve got
something in mind that we donít understand.
And the overriding issue for the Egyptians was immortality,
eternal life, which is not meant in some stupid way as wandering
around in the afterlife drinking beer ≠ although thatís not so
bad. But it has to do with conscious spiritual development and
at the culmination of that, having successfully carried out that
enterprise, letís say, the lifetime of the seeker, the sugar
plum at the end is a higher state of consciousness that is not
subject to time.
In some way, those pyramids facilitate that process. Those
little star channels might tune the whole device to the stars in
some way that we just plain donít understand.

Editorís Note by Linda Howe: In his book, Secrets of the Great
Pyramid © 1971 by Peter Tompkins, he summarized theosophist H.
P. Blavatskyís description of the Cheops Kingís Chamber in her
classic work about occult mysteries, 'The Secret Doctrine', this
"(She) says the Pyramid not only indicated the courses of
the stars in heaven, but was 'the everlasting record and the
indestructible symbol of the Mysteries and Initiations on
Earth,' ...a temple of initiation where men rose towards the
Gods and the Gods descended towards men."
According to Manly P. Hall in his extraordinary classic,
Secret Teachings of All Ages, he described an ancient Hermetic
process in which the Great Pyramid was used to teach initiates
how to experience the release of the soul from the body
"The candidate was laid in the great stone coffin,
and for three days his spirit - freed from its mortal coil -
wandered at the gateways of eternity. His Ka, as a bird, flew
through the spiritual spheres of space. He discovered that all
the universe was life, all the universe was progress, all the
universe was eternal growth. Realizing that his body was a house
which he could slip out of and return to without death, he
achieved actual immortality. At the end of three days, he
returned to himself again, and having thus personally and
actually experienced the great mystery (of consciousness
continuing after the moment of death), he was indeed an Initiate
- one who beheld and one to whom religion had fulfilled her duty
bringing him to the light of God."
TAKING YOUR IDEA THAT THESE CHANNELS IN CHEOPS MIGHT BE FOCUSED
ON SPECIFIC STARS TO RESONATE WITH SOME KIND OF STARLIGHT
FREQUENCY OUT THERE WE DONíT FULLY UNDERSTAND AND THAT CHEOPS
MIGHT BE LIKE AN INSTRUMENT DESIGNED TO RESONATE AT A CERTAIN
FREQUENCY OR FREQUENCIES BECAUSE THOSE LITTLE CHANNELS ARE THERE
WITH THOSE BLOCKS.
Well, thatís part of it.
IF WE BEGAN LOOKING AT CHEOPS AS A PIECE OF EQUIPMENT THAT CAN
RESONATE, AND CAN RESONATE AT CERTAIN FREQUENCIES WHETHER IT IS
STARLIGHT FREQUENCY OR WHATEVER, THEN IT BEGINS TO MAKE YOUR
MIND SEE THAT THESE LITTLE BLOCKS MIGHT BE IN THERE SPECIFICALLY
FOR TUNING PURPOSES.
Maybe. Along those lines, another John West hypothesis ≠ one of
the big mysteries about the pyramid is the that strange pit, the
bottom most chamber thatís left unfinished. The usual
explanation is that it was the original burial chamber and then
it got to a certain point and decided, íWe donít want to do
that.í And then they changed their mind and decided to put the
burial chamber up higher. But to me, I never bought that. I
donít believe the pyramid is the result of changes of mind.
Although, I do believe it represents at least two or maybe more
stages of building. But anyway, John Westís hypothesisís
hypothesis is that the whole thing is intended as some kind of
instrument and if you want to tune a regular instrument, letís
say a guitar - you tighten the frets so you get the right
resonance. If you are trying to tune a stone instrument ≠
thereís nothing you can tighten.
However, if you want to get it exactly right, you just hollow
something out. In other words, you remove stone until you get
exactly the right resonance. That struck me as a possibility. In
other words, the whole thing is a resonant structure, maybe
tuned to the stars. I donít know. Maybe designed to attune us to
the stars. Again, this is pure speculation, but it did cross my
mind. I have this hypothesis that the whole pyramid is indeed
tuned and even the unfinished chamber down below is part of that
WHEN WE MAKE ANTENNAS, WE TALK ABOUT A WAVEGUIDE. ISNíT THAT THE
WHOLE POINT OF CHANNELS IN ANTENNAS?
Could be. Yeah. In other words, an antenna ≠ again, weíre
talking about a stone instrument. So how ≠ you canít put an
antenna on a stone instrument. Actually, I like that, Linda,
that these channels are sort of the negative of an antenna. An
antenna is a rod that goes out into the air and attracts certain
sound waves. If you have a stone instrument, maybe those little
channels are reverse antennas, hollow antennas. I quite like
that. These are among the huge mysteries to be solved."
