Ufologist Involved in the Great Pyramids of Giza Research:
Many of you might wonder how a Ufologist would fit in with the research being done by The Great Pyramid of Giza Research Association. Dr. John DeSalvo is the Director of this association, and he has organized some of the best researchers in the world within the past few years to research the history of the pyramids and to study the effects the pyramids supposedly possess. Currently the advisory board consists of 22 individuals from Canada, Ukraine, Italy, India, France, Malta and the United States comprised of scientists, physicists, Egyptologists, engineers and recently a Ufologist. The association web site is www.gizapyramid.com and if you have any interest in the pyramids, I would highly recommend this site. Currently the association has over 5000 members.
In this editorial I will share a limited amount of the research that has been done by a few members of the advisory board over the years and give a few of my own theories.
Stephen Mehler has researched a civilization known as Khemitians, well over 10,000 years old, which has led to his book, "The Land of Osiris". He and others believe the Khemitians were an advanced prehistoric civilization in ancient Egypt. Could the Khemitians have built the pyramids? Mehler thinks the answer could be yes, and his research supports that of others that say the Great Pyramids were never intended to be a tomb for an Egyptian King, but possibly a machine to transform, generate and transmit energy. The theories on the Khemitian civilization by some researchers goes as far as stating they may have been in contact with star people, because it appears they had technology and tools that were superior to anything the Egyptians or any other known civilization possessed. The use of water and sound may someday prove to have been a key factor in the building of the great pyramids as a means of overcoming gravity to handle the gigantic stones used to build the pyramids and the precise accuracy used to cut them.
No mummy or remains of any kind have been found in the great pyramid. When first entered by the Arabs in 820 AD, the only thing found was an empty granite box in the Kings chamber called the "coffer". The empty, lidless box was uninscribed and undecorated, and most certainly would have been covered with hieroglyphics and paintings had a Pharaoh been placed in it, as was the custom of the Egyptians. It is the only pyramid with ascending and descending passages. Others pyramids only have descending passages. Dead Pharaoh's don't need air, so why were airshafts built into the great pyramid?
Originally the great pyramid was covered with highly polished limestone casing stones, which acted like gigantic mirrors to reflect light and so powerful that it would have been visible from the moon. The Arabs removed most of the casing stones from the pyramid in the 14th century to build mosques.
It has been assumed the great pyramid was built for Khufu a pharaoh of the 4th dynasty about 2600 BC, but historical records indicate Khufu was not buried in the great pyramid, and it is our belief that the Sphinx and the pyramids of Giza are much older than we've been told by modern day Egyptologists. Many have researched the Pyramids during the past 4 or 500 years including Napoleon Bonaparte in 1798, whose expedition was accompanied not only by his military, but also by engineers, surveyors, astronomers, artist and archeologists. Their work was published in many volumes from 1809 to 1822 by order of Napoleon. Napoleon was supposedly visibly shaken after spending time alone in the King's Chamber and refused to ever talk about it again. Some say he was given some vision of his destiny while alone in the King's chamber.
Another of our advisory board members, Joe Parr has spent an entire night on top of the great pyramid on two separate occasions in 1997 and 1998, conducting electrical, magnetic and radioactive measurements. He has been able to measure an Energy field or bubble that forms around the pyramid. The energy field appears to vary with the 11-year sunspot cycle. As a point of interest it appears that the great pyramid was never finished, since the top is flat and contains no top stone. The top of the pyramid has a 30 by 30 foot flat area.
Our Russian board member Volodymyr Krasnoholovets, was part of a Russian and Ukrainian group utilizing large pyramids recently built by the Russian National Academy of Sciences in the Ukraine, that discovered; the immune system of organisms increased upon exposure in the pyramid, agriculture seeds placed in the pyramid for 1 to 5 days showed a 30% increase in yield, violent weather seems to decrease in the area of the pyramid, the potency of pharmaceuticals increased with decreasing side effects, and the pyramids decrease the strength of various viruses and bacteria. Ordinary water does not freeze even at 40 degrees below zero and retains its properties for years, while synthesized diamonds turn out harder and purer when placed in the pyramids.
Since I have had an interest in the pyramids and a few other subjects for years I felt very honored when I was recommended by Jeff Rense and asked to join the advisory board, and this research may well be some of the most difficult I've attempted thus far. After all it's not going to be easy for any of us to prove, much less convince the world that the great pyramids of Egypt may not be Egyptian. Keep in mind that tourism in Egypt is big business and they will not relinquish that easily. In my research I'm referring only to the 3 pyramids of Giza and the Sphinx, as I do believe many if not all of the other pyramids in Egypt may have been built by the Egyptians, but when they are studied, it seems obvious to me that they are simply poor replicas of the original 3, based on the workmanship, the smaller size and the lack of technology involved. None of the pyramids anywhere in the world compare with the pyramids of Giza. In recent years there have been attempts to duplicate the construction of the pyramids only to have failed miserably in their attempts, and they wound up using cranes, front-end loaders and other modern day equipment, still not able to duplicate what was accomplished thousands of years ago. Whoever and whenever the pyramids of Giza were built knew something that apparently we still don't know today. They were one of the original seven wonders of the world and are in fact the only thing still remaining of those seven wonders.
The factual information about the pyramids of Giza to someone like myself that devoted 36 years to civil engineering is almost incomprehensible. Let me share a few of those facts with you before I talk about some of the research I've done with other advisory board members as it pertains to Ufology and particularly the Roswell Incident.
The great pyramid of Giza is composed of 2 ½ million blocks of limestone, which weigh 2 to 70 tons each, (you could build 30 Empire State buildings with its masonry). The base of the pyramid covers 13 acres and it has a volume of 90 million cubic feet. It is 454 feet high, equivalent to a 48-story building. There are 203 courses or steps to the summit. Each side slopes upward at an angle of 51 degrees 51 minutes and each side has an area of 5 ½ acres, while less than a fiftieth of an inch separates the blocks with optical precision. Construction of the great pyramids of Giza was no accident---whoever build them knew what they were doing.
Some of our assumptions about the pyramids of Giza being much older than we've been told are derived from the Sphinx. For many years the body of the Sphinx was protected by sand that completely covered it except for the head portion. When the sand was removed in the mid 1800s, the body of a lion appeared including outstretched paws. Further study of the Sphinx now indicates to many researchers that the deteriation of the Sphinx body was not caused by sand and wind, but rather by water, and there has not been that volume of water in that area of the world for over 7,000 years, which would predate the Egyptian civilization, that today takes credit for the Sphinx and the pyramids of Giza. The head of the Sphinx is also a concern to us. Some of us believe the face of the Sphinx has been altered. It is totally out of proportion with the body and may at one time have been the head of a lion or even a female face, which would correspond with the Khemetian civilization that appears to have had the female gender in the power positions rather than males. This again would be contrary to Egyptian teaching, since the female was the dominant gender for the Khemitian civilization I mentioned earlier as predating Egyptians, and a female face would probably have been that of a North African woman, which the face does resemble today. My personal belief in viewing the head of the Sphinx is that the back half of the head seems proportioned to the body, while the front half may in fact have been altered.
My own research on the Pyramids and more specifically the Egyptians since I became a part of the association, was created from being familiar with the symbols described by Major Jesse Marcel and his son Jesse Jr. pertaining to the I-beams from the 1947 Roswell Incident craft. The writing on the I-beams has been referred to as resembling hieroglyphics on several occasions.
I contacted Linda Corley who was the last person to interview Major Marcel in 1981, prior to his death. During that interview Marcel drew 5 symbols on a piece of paper as he remembered them looking, and signed the paper. Ms Corley's research indicated that the symbols did in fact resemble demotic hieroglyphics. After obtaining Ms. Corley's permission, since her work is copyrighted, I purchased her manuscripts and asked one of the Pyramid Association members to analyze Marcel's drawing. The response I got back was negative pertaining to any similarities with Egyptian hieroglyphics. I will continue to exhaust all research avenues available to me in order to confirm or deny that there is any correlation between the symbols on the Roswell craft I-beams and hieroglyphics.
Another part of my research will of course involve the possibility of extraterrestrials having been involved in some manner, perhaps not in the actual construction of the pyramids, but by providing technology to a civilization that predates Egypt. It will certainly be interesting research.
