Pyramids of Egypt

Time Travel to the Pyramids of Egypt and The Great Pyramid
by time traveler/futurist Gordon-Michael Scallion

Considered one of the seven wonders of the world, the Great Pyramid, located at Giza (also known as the Pyramid of Khufu, the Egyptian king for which it was built, or Cheops, to use his Greek name), has stood as an enigma for thousands of years. And it continues to do so, even in our technologically advanced twentieth century.

We have built space ships that have transported men safely to the moon and back, and still, with all of this marvelous technology, we do not know how the Great Pyramid was built, who built it, and most importantly, why it was built.

Egyptologists currently date the construction of the Great Pyramid at around 2,600 B.C., as a tomb built for the pharaoh, Khufu. They theorize that a primitive people working with copper and brass tools constructed this monument, using a hundred thousand or more slaves over a period of twenty years.

Let’s look at some of the scientifically known facts about the Great Pyramid, beginning with its location, or position, on the Earth. If we were to look at a flat map of the continents and oceans, we would find that Cheops is located precisely at the geographical center of the total land surface of the world - at approximately thirty degrees north latitude, by thirty degrees east longitude. Further, we would find that the pyramid’s position, relative to true north, is only six seconds of one degree off of today’s exact polar north direction.

The Great Pyramid is constructed of almost two and a half million blocks of stone, each weighing at least two tons, with some stones estimated at over fifty tons. (For comparison, the average weight of an American automobile is approximately two tons.)


These massive blocks were cut, moved, and then fitted together with such exactness that a thin blade cannot be inserted between them. The pyramid has a vertical elevation the equivalent of a forty-story skyscraper - over four hundred feet. Currently, no capstone exists on the structure, and much debate exists as to whether one ever did exist.


The base of this massive monument measures over seven hundred fifty feet on each of its four sides, and covers an area of thirteen acres. (Again, as a comparison, an average city block in New York City covers just under two acres.) The four sides of the pyramid are perfectly oriented towards the cardinal points - north, south, east, and west. The base is level with a divergence of less than one inch in its total circumference.

Whatever culture built the Great Pyramid must have had an advanced knowledge of mathematics and Earth’s measurements, as well as their exact position - within seconds of a degree - relative to the North Pole. One has only to visit this structure to realize it must surely have been built by an advanced race of people. Its perfection is like nothing found in the world today.

Conventional Egyptology theorizes that the Great Pyramid is four thousand six hundred years old, which is in itself an enigma. We know from archaeological discoveries that copper and bronze were used at that time, but not iron. Yet even today, to cut these stones to such an accuracy - especially the granite used in the inner chambers - would require tools of the precision used to cut diamonds, but on a massive scale.


The engineering, mathematics and technology needed to construct such a monument is, even now, far beyond our comprehension. In fact, some years ago, an attempt to construct a small-scale model of Cheops was attempted. With funding from Japan, researchers, mathematicians, computer experts, engineers of all types, machinery, and anything else the twentieth century could offer were brought to the Giza Plateau. After months of hard labor and millions of dollars, they gave up.


Even with all of the global technology of the twentieth century at their disposal, all they could say was, "How did they do it?"

After visiting the Great Pyramid, I wondered if those who believe a primitive culture built the Great Pyramid have ever been inside the structure. If the sheer size and perfection of the outside doesn’t astound you, the inside surely will. My visit inside the Great Pyramid and into the Grand Gallery
(click left image) induced visions of an order and magnitude that I have never experienced before.


Here was a passageway - one hundred fifty-six feet long and twenty-eight feet high, at an incline of twenty-six degrees - perfectly aligned. The stones here are granite, many weighing over fifty tons! I live in New Hampshire - the Granite State - and my house is set on a granite foundation, so I am well-acquainted with the difficulties inherent in trying to manipulate and work with this particular mineral.


Have you ever tried to break, let alone cut, granite? Even with diamond saws and grinders, a feat of engineering such as is evidenced by Cheops’ Grand Gallery staggers the imagination. The granite stones in the Gallery are finely polished, too, as they are in the two chambers that lead into the Gallery - the Queen’s Chamber, and the King’s Chamber (click below-right image). And remember the currently accepted theory of construction: one hundred thousand slaves, twenty years, copper and bronze tools, primitive people, and no technological advancements. It seems impossible, doesn’t it? The pieces just don’t fit neatly together.

Unequivocally, our visit to Giza and the Great Pyramid changed my life. I do not make this statement lightly, especially in view of all the incredible changes I’ve experienced since my health crisis in 1979, and my subsequent thrust into the world as a visionary. However, reviewing all the changes I’ve been through, my experience at the Great Pyramid has had the most profound effect on my life and direction of service of anything else I’ve experienced.


Perhaps, as Edgar Cayce said, "The Great Pyramid was built as a temple of initiation." I certainly experienced my own visit as an initiation.

Actually, many seers have pointed to the Great Pyramid as a place for initiation. Some have even suggested its purpose was to stabilize the world so as to prevent an axis shift. Scientists continue to contend that it was a tomb for Khufu, though no mummy, or records referring to the structure being a tomb for Khufu have been found.


Unlike other structures in Egypt, the Great Pyramid contains no hieroglyphs that might shed some light on its purpose. It appears that if the pyramid’s builders wanted to record any message, they did so through the only process that would surely survive - the massive size and ingenious mathematics of the structure itself.

The visions I received at Giza were quite different from the visions I’d otherwise been receiving since 1979. Typically, when I see a vision it is like viewing a split screen, like watching two or three aspects of the same scene. Not so at Giza. My first vision occurred before I ever entered the pyramid. I was sitting on our balcony at the Mena House, which faced the Great Pyramid, maybe a thousand feet away, when I found myself seeing a vision of workers clearing the plateau in preparation for construction of the Great Pyramid.

I found myself being drawn into the vision, so that instead of it being an optical experience where I was viewing an event, I had become part of the scene I was watching. I had actually traveled back to the time of construction.

I see large birds in the air which remind me of prehistoric birds. The terrain is much different than in my present - semi-tropical, with lush vegetation, a mild temperature in the seventies, and water surrounding the entire plateau. The area surrounding the hotel where I had been when the vision began is now underwater.

Also in the air, I see large cigar-shaped flying machines which resemble hot-air balloons. Cables hang down from the craft to anchor points below. Workers dressed in white kilts and cloth hats that have long flaps extending down to their shoulders, are removing stones from cradles that are housed below the craft.


The activity reminds me of helicopters that transport heavy materials on platforms, supported by cables. I can see other air ships coming into the area, being guided by anchor cables from point to point. Each ship carries a cradle, one stone in each, with markings on each stone in glyph form. Here, I realize, is an unconsidered possibility in the pyramid puzzle. These air machines were used to transport the stones from quarries to the site - not barges, rollers, ramps and slaves!

If this experience stops at this point, I tell myself, I will still consider it the most amazing vision I’ve ever witnessed in my life. I continue to watch the building of what will become - thousands of years from now - one of the seven wonders of the world. Astounded, I listen to the voices of the workers, and the screeches of the mammoth birds in the sky. I bask in the humid heat of the day. My thoughts are running so fast that I am barely aware of the throbbing in my head - a familiar sensation which indicates I am pushing too hard to receive information. I back off a little bit, and the scenery changes.

Pictures began to flow by, like a river of consciousness. I wondered, "When is this occurring?" Immediately, my inner voice responded with an answer.

"The time frame is 12,553 years before present."

My thoughts dashed to a list of questions I had written for myself back in New Hampshire, prior to our trip. During our travels, I had hoped to find clues to the secrets of the Sphinx and the Great Pyramid itself - what their significance was, and answers to why I had been drawn here.


Now, here I was, tapped into a super-consciousness database - a library of sorts - where I might do a tad better than clues.


Concerned time would run out and I would lose the connection, my thoughts raced, but I was committed to staying in this time-stream, and allowing whatever I was presented with to occur.

"What was the original significance of the Giza complex at the time it was first built?"

"This would depend on which civilization, as the purpose varied depending on the root race then present, for there have been many evolutions there, and many groups have come and gone. In the beginning, this country was one of the first of the in-dwellings of man."

"What time frame?"

"Here we would need to turn back time to more than ten million years from the present. The people were similar to a collective thought form, physical in some respects, but light in density. If they were viewed in the present they would appear shadow-like. The society was one that was constructed or built upon a conscious relationship with the One - in constant communication. It was taken for granted in the same way a breath of air is taken for granted today.

"With the greater changes and the shifts of the Earth’s axis - numerous times - this site has been occupied longer than any other land on the globe. In the time frame before the last geophysical pole shift, some fifty-four thousand years ago, this site - Giza - was occupied by the peoples from the Gobi who had moved into this area and joined with the people already present. The giant Olmec heads that may be found in many lands today would be a close kin to these people.

"After the shifting of the poles, this land became a wasteland of sorts and eventually became overgrown, tropical in nature, and a different geological formation. Even the oceans were much different during this time period. Slowly the area shifted once more and became more habitable, and then there were the migrations of those peoples from Mu, Alta, and other lands that came into that region, developing a high level of society some thirty-eight thousand years before present. This would be termed here the beginning of the current Giza site - not the first, mind you - for even during this time period there was research going on to determine who the original inhabitants of this land were.

"During this time frame there began the construction of the first of those monuments still present at Giza - the great head of the king of that time which has since been modified into what is now called the Sphinx. This was done by those who came into the land some sixteen thousand years later.


Civilization continued until there was the greater destructive forces from the Atlantean land, thirty thousand years before present, when there was the warring activity between them and the land now known as China. This caused global cataclysm, bringing the world into another dark age.

"This site lay dormant and did not reemerge again until approximately eighteen thousand years ago. At this time we would find the beginning of what was to become a solar cult, and the beginning of the current Egyptian civilization. Growth was slow until twelve thousand five hundred years ago, when other races of people from Zu, Ur, Dar, and Alta, entered into this land.


It was during this time period that great technological, spiritual and scientific advancements were achieved on Earth. Here began the initial thoughts and plans for what was to become a series of complexes, above and below ground: a great avenue containing buildings dedicated to science, medicine, history, astronomy; an observatory; buildings dedicated to astrology and numerology;, and more. Today it would be similar to the Library of Congress, the Smithsonian, the Cairo Museum, the Mount Palomar Observatory, and various universities.

"Now, during this time frame, the Nile was much closer to the complex and there were canals that had been dug allowing the Nile to reach the site. So, from the Sphinx, for example, we would find the Nile to be five hundred to a thousand yards, depending upon the turn or the curve of the waterway. This channeled water into the site and the plateau could be seen as an island unto itself.


Whereas, if you looked at the plateau now, you would find that the area that is now the ancient cemetery, as well as the new cemetery, situated to the east and facing the Sphinx, would have been a waterway. So imagine an island, rectangular in shape, with a docking port many feet below and on the east and west sides of the Sphinx. This would give you a fair approximation of the site during this time period."

"Was the Great Pyramid like a church or temple, where people came to pray for enlightenment or experience initiation?" I asked.

"You seek a name to call this structure, a name to describe its purpose, do you not?"

Still somewhat fearful that I would loose the contact, I thought, trying not to be too excited, "Yes, that’s exactly it."

An immediate response came back. "The Great Pyramid is a time machine."

This response was not one of the possibilities I had considered! How could it be possible? Television and movies in the present are just beginning to explore the possibilities of time travel. For comparison, look at what we have achieved in the past century - electricity, the automobile, atomic power, lasers, space travel - all within the short span of a hundred years.


Now, imagine where our civilization might be in the next hundred years. And that is exactly where these people were over twelve thousand five hundred years ago! Civilization does not necessarily develop technologically, with time.


Rather, it rises and falls, depending on the lessons that civilization - that particular group consciousness - desires.

"Who built the Great Pyramid?" I asked.

"Atlanteans, in conjunction with Egyptians and Dareans."

"How does this machine work?"

"The machine’s purpose, as constructed, was multiple in design. Bending time was its focus, so as to provide a process for initiation. However, the manner in which this was accomplished provided other benefits for its people. These varied from increased crop yield, weather control, a form of electrical power, and a learning institute for the study of the heavens - astronomy, astrology and cosmic forces, mathematics, chemistry, inner world dimensions, and the seven levels of initiation. All were part of its design."

"Like astronomy and astrology," I thought.

"Yes, it was used as an observatory. The builders knew the cycles of the stars, their individual and collective emanations relative to the Earth and sun, their effect on consciousness, and the fact that life was not limited to the Earth. To this end, windows were known and so recorded in those chambers, known and unknown, to indicate times when communication was possible with people from other worlds - both inner worlds and physical worlds. Knowing these things then, it became possible to construct such an instrument that could attune to those forces emanating from stars and other dimensions, amplify and modify them so as to bend time. This then allowed those in resonance with the instrument to enter the time-stream where all inner-world communication occurs relative to this sphere."

"What did these people hope to attain through time traveling?"

"A way to communicate with the Lord and His angels."

Stunned by this answer, I felt the familiar electrical sensations course through my body, and suddenly found myself back on the hotel patio. I was intensely disappointed that my lack of control had caused me to break the contact. My head throbbing from the experience, I decided I would try again the next day, and fell asleep for the afternoon.

Realizing the importance of timing and consistency regarding intuitive applications, I attempted to induce a vision the next day at the same time and location. Colorful visions emerged, showing me the topography of the region, the position of the Nile at that time, and more views of the construction process. These were the more conventional visions that I usually receive - more of visions blending into other visions - each lasting only seconds. After fifteen minutes or so, these stopped.

Later that day we visited the Sphinx, where we spent an hour or so. Upon leaving the Sphinx area I walked to the top of the plateau where the Great Pyramid and two smaller pyramids - those for Kings Mycerinus (or Menkaure) and Chephren (or Khafre) - are located. I stopped at a turn in the road, about a thousand feet away, and gazed at the three pyramids, enjoying their magnificence.


Suddenly, I heard a popping sound, and found myself once again witnessing the construction of the Great Pyramid. The experience of the previous day had prepared me, or rather focused my thoughts towards what I felt was important to observe. I never expected to repeat the interactive experience, but hoped I would be able to go back to the point I’d left at the day before.

There are no pyramids present on the plateau, only the beginning construction of what will be the Great Pyramid. I recognize the Sphinx, although the styling is much different than in my present; there are a few other buildings, as well, rectangular in shape, and a few mound-like structures that seem to be very old.


The monstrous birds I’d seen in my previous visions continue to fill the sky. I notice several men making strange motions. In one hand, each holds a sling of some sort, which carries a weight at one end. They begin spinning these in a circular fashion. A high-pitched screech is emitted, causing the prehistoric birds to scatter, and me to cover my ears. A few moments later, a large air ship enters the plateau.

I prayed I could keep centered and stay as an "observer." I took a deep breath, and felt an electrical sensation run from my shoulders to my neck. Carefully, I asked my first question.

"What is the relationship between the Great Pyramid being both a time machine and a place of initiation?"

"Life is initiation. Each thought, each action, is a portion of initiation. Man once walked the Earth with full knowledge of the Oneness. All thoughts were one. All actions one. Then, with a single thought, an infinite number of thoughts - separate and collective - were formed. It was the creation of souls. A portion of these souls came to this sun system to experience individuality, though they remained connected to the Host.


With time, magnetic forces and will, communication with the Host and other spiritual realms became so blocked as to cause a separation. To aid in the reconnection, a process of initiation, or training, was established. It utilized the Great Pyramid as a communications instrument. In this way, contact would be possible for those who, through their dedication, could communicate with their soul mates and the greater collective consciousness."

So many questions were part of my consciousness, but I grabbed onto the first one I could, so as not to loose the connection again.

"Why so large a structure?"

"The size and mass chosen was required in order for the instrument to contain the gasses within the structure, as the machine operated. The shape chosen, acted as an antenna - collecting those particles that precede light from the heavens, that are forever being drawn to this sphere."

"Could you explain the term ‘antenna’?"

"This specific pyramid shape, in conjunction with its position of latitude, acted as a lens, not optical, but in focus, drawing to the machine those rays necessary for communication."

"Explain what is meant by ‘gasses within the structure’?"

"Stones in specific portions of the instrument were set in place with a sealer-adhesive, which allowed for airtight chambers and passageways to exist. The gasses were a mixture brought up from deep within the Earth, and combined with gasses created by the alteration of elements, as created through the instrument. The principles used here are similar to the laser used today, but developed differently because of conditions then present."

"Was this gas invisible?"

"Green in color when active, invisible otherwise."

"Is this gas present in the world today?"

"Only at times in nature when those magnetic vortexes that may be found in the world become active."

"What is meant by ‘active’?"

"Transition points - polarity shifts in the solar cycle - June and December currently."

"And what is the purpose of the passageways?"

"Multiple in purpose. These were used as service tunnels, sighting tubes, and to channel large quantities of gas to the appropriate chamber."

"And what about the main entrance to the ascending and descending passageways?"

"The main entrance has not been found. It will be discovered deep below the base - nearer the center of the pyramid - with a passageway leading up to the apex, as well as to the Sphinx and other structures. What is now thought to be the main entrance, was at that time used as part of the machine. At that time, a hinged door was set in the opening which, in one mode of operation, acted as a safety valve for the release of gas. In another mode, the door was held open by a lever, allowing the sighting and tracking of specific stars. This was so the Earth’s exact position, or axis relative to specific spheres - currently Polaris - could be determined. When used for such alignment, light from the star entered the doorway and fell upon the instruments, located at a position along the descending passageway."

"If the entrance was below the base, how did one get to the Queen’s and King’s Chambers?"

"Access to these chambers were not required as they were a portion of the instrument - harmonically-tuned rooms. By way of a stone staircase, travel to the top - or capstone - was possible, as was travel to the lower control rooms many hundreds of feet below."

"So there was a capstone?"

"Yes, made out of the metals of the day - hollow."

"Are there other chambers above the base besides those we know as the King’s and Queen’s Chambers, and the Pit?"

"Yes. Seven in number, above the base as chambers."

"What is the purpose of those shafts found in the Queen’s Chamber?"

"These are for monitoring and controlling the gasses, internal to the structure at that location."

"What is the purpose of the Grand Gallery?"

"This is the tuning circuit of the instrument. Along its length, tracks were fitted - above, below and on each side - in which a tuning device was housed, in a carriage. The carriage, then, contained the likeness of a creature - part bird, part beast - holding a large crystal in its talons.


The tips of the creature’s wings reached to the height of the Gallery, and contacted the upper tracks. This was then powered, through induction, by magnetic forces. These propelled the carriage up or down the Gallery.


When tuned properly - for depending on the chamber selected, different desired results could occur - the time-space fabric would shift within the instrument, allowing a portal to open."

My head continued to throb as vision after vision filled my mental screen. The realization of what I was experiencing began to overwhelm me. My first thought was to give control of what was occurring over to some external force.


But my inner voice responded, correcting me in a gentle, yet assertive manner.

"You are aware most times of the real you and your connection with the inner worlds. You must now push your consciousness out further, and acknowledge the experience as being within. Do not misunderstand.


This is not to indicate that other spiritual forms are not assisting, or are at times present, but these occur as guides to assist in initiation, not to fulfill initiation.


The more the inner self is accepted, the greater the development. And yes ... risk is the price that must be paid. But what is being risked here? We would suggest it is the ego. Without risk, there can be no gain. Safety is but an illusion."

I took a few deep breaths. I thought, I know this, so why do I continue to question, to resist? I felt a glimmer of understanding. It is part of the initiation, I thought.


My mind relaxed, and I continued with my questioning about the Great Pyramid.

"Who, or what, determined the selection of a chamber?"

"The initiate chose, with the assistance of the priest."

"Please explain this."

"Better here to explain initiation. As given previously, all of life is initiation. Each experience, each act, each deed - especially thoughts - are a portion of initiation. Initiation then is a process whereby the entity - the soul force - is given the opportunity to develop spiritually. This means, that when the soul chooses to improve itself - to move towards a greater light, the soul-body so changes its vibration as to remove from its spiritual fabric those attachments detrimental to its path upward.

"An analogy here would be to imagine blindness that has been a part of the physical body from birth. Then, through surgery and the removal of blockages, vision is very slowly restored. At first, light may be detected, void of detail or meaning, but nevertheless, a new experience. Slowly, shadows appear in the vision. Another new experience. Shadows then give way to form and detail. With each new visual experience, small shifts in awareness occur. Lastly, color fills the form and a new interaction with the other senses occurs. At this point, a whole new world opens up - the applications of sight. Initiation operates much in the same manner.

"Now as to the process of initiation. Each soul is at some level of initiation at birth, as a result of previous, as well as future, incarnations. Even those souls who have fallen are still at a level of initiation. Initiation can be either an upward movement towards a greater light or downward towards the darkness."

"Are the two known passageways - ascending and descending - related to initiation?"

"Descending - to decline or regress. Ascending - upwards towards the Great Hall and final initiation in the King’s Chamber."

"It has been speculated in some books that these passageways contain evidence of Biblical prophecies. Is this correct?"

"In part. The passageways contain a time line. This marks significant dates of all major religious movements since man first entered the Earth. The time line ends in 1953, with the entrance to the King’s Chamber."

"Why 1953?"

"This marks the time period of ‘the choosing.’ The choices of humankind, from 1953 to 1998, will determine how the development of the next civilization, or root race, will unfold."

"Does the time line pick up somewhere else?"

"Rather, it points the way."

"To where?"

"The tomb."

"Does this refer to the empty sarcophagus?"

"Yes, though this was part symbolic, in form, and part of the machine."

"What does it symbolize?"

"The final test - passage from the physical world to the spiritual and back. The continuum of life."

"And how is this part of the machine?"

"It is a resonant device tuned to the frequencies required for the seventh level of initiation. This then worked in conjunction with the room’s additional workings. What appears to be the ceiling of the King’s Chamber is but one of several tuned circuits. Forces collected by the pyramid were captured, focused and directed downward through the stones, into the open sarcophagus.


These frequencies, in conjunction with other forces created by the crystal in the Great Hall, and the initiate himself, made possible the test for the seventh level of initiation - travel to other worlds."

"So the sarcophagus by itself has no power?"

"In the hands of an initiate of the seventh level it has great power, even today."

"Are there other devices like this in the world?"

"The one most remembered and still preserved is known as the ‘Ark of the Covenant’."

I decided, despite my curiosity to know more about this, that I would make better use of this opportunity by staying with the subject of initiation. I hoped that some day I would be able to learn about the Ark, and some of the other areas touched upon. I continued with the original line of questioning.

"Since the initiates were not physically present in the chambers, how was travel to other worlds possible?" …
