However, Cayce also said that the ancients, led by a charismatic High Priest named Ra Ta, and an architecht named Hermes, were contempory with a failing, and soon to vanish Atlantean civilization, dated by no less than Plato to 10,000 BCE!
In this important book, certain to be followed by others, Andrew Collins begins to answer the challenge posed by traditional archeology:"where is the evidence." He draws on overlooked reports of early archeology, as well as traditional wisdom, local legend, and textual evidence in known antiquities to build a powerful case that the evidence has been under everyones noses all along!
Drawing on all this material Collins puts theory into practice and rediscovers a vast complex of tunnels and caves under the giza plateau! Portions of which show obvious evidence of human alteration. He presents a powerful case that the mythical Hall of Records described by Cayce and many other ancient and modern mystics is located and can be accessed by exploring, and understanding this complex in the context of Egyptian tradition and wisdom.
Some will be dissappointed that Collins hasn't discovered the hall itself, but I think he is being careful and responsible: putting together the pieces of the puzzle in a way that honors the builders of that distant past, rather than playing the arrogant westerner imposing his views (or trying to)on a skeptical Egyptian Archeological establishment.Read more ›
Then, there are the 'seekers', i.e., those who sense, discern, feel or are drawn to things Egyptological because they 'seek' to know more about the world, at a deeper level than at just being a tourist. Andrew Collins book, 'Digging Beneath the Pyramids' is NOT for tourists and, for most seekers even, Andrew's 'Digging' may seem, at first glance, to be as one reviewer called it 'thin'.
Nothing could miss the mark more than this approach. I have been studying the Edgar Cayce material for over 40 years and have been infatuated with Egypt for over 50. During this time, I have read just about every book I, as a layman, could get my hands on regarding Egypt so have at least a limited layman's knowledge about what Andrew's book 'Digging is about...at least I think I do.
So, dear reader, allow me to share with you what I think is going on with 'Digging' and why this is one of the MOST important books on the whole question of rediscovery of the hidden roots of the human race to have come along in a long, long time.
Andrew's interest in Egypt (if you follow his website and his prior works...especially 'The Cygnus Mystery'), lays the groundwork for the discoveries that are described in 'Digging Beneath the Pyramids'. Why?Read more ›
Beneath The Pyramids is sort of a cross between ancient Egyptian history and Indiana Jones type real life adventure.
The historical aspect was very interesting to me as it informed me about points of the ancient Egyptian religion(s) that I had not heard before. The book is very well researched. Some of the conclusions are admittedly hypothetical, but overall I found the book to be interesting and informative.
The very fact that these tunnels exist at all is astounding, but the fact that no one is saying or writing much about them is mystifying to me. It seems that a (re)discovery such as this would set the researchers of Giza into a whirlwind of activity and study. And maybe it would have if it weren't for the ending of the book, where Collins deems it important to the preservation of the site to turn over the information he obtained about the caverns to the enemy of Egyptian Studies, Zahi Hawass.
No other man is responsible for more deliberate obfuscation of the facts than Hawass. Any kind of serious research that could shed some new light on Ancient Egypt's past is immediately silenced by him if he deems that is differs from what conventional history has told us, no matter the degree of evidence.
The book overall is interesting, and deserves a read by anyone interested in the subject of the Giza Plateau, but enjoy what you get there because since Mr. Hawass is now involved, you probably won't hear anything more about it.
