This review is from: Giza Death Star (Paperback)
This book was almost impossible for me to comprehend. I guess the main problem is I'm not a physicist. And after reading the first two pages of the preface, I realized that reading this book was going to be quite laborsome. The Author quickly warns the reader that he will not attempt to dumb things down, and that's fine, but unfortunatley, it is so riddled with technical specifications about physics and quantum string theories,that I felt lost and confused through much of the book. Now don't get me wrong, Farrell's book definitely brings up some fascinating points that authors like John Anthony West, Graham Hancock and Robert Bauval started back in the 1990's. Specifically, about the ignorance of Egyptologists, and their absolute refusal to accept clear evidence of a much more advanced culture that our recorded history simply has no record of. There are a sleu of books available today that have this kind of theme to thtem, and I love reading them. The problem for me was that much of the more comprehensible material discussed in this book was really just rehashing points that authors like Christopher Dunn so geniously discovered. The evidence of the great pyramid obviously being some kind of machine. In fact, if this topic interests you, I would recommend reading Dunn's book instead, as the actual data that Farell discusses about the chambers are mainly referencing "The Giza Powerplant". Where Dunn adresses the evidence of this concept, backed by reverse engineering and a simple, clear breakdown of how a machine like this might work, Farrell tends to get speculative about how this machine must be a weapon. And honestly, I have to admit, by the end of the book, I never fully understood, nor accepted the idea of how this weapon could actually work, which in fareness to Farrel, may very well be my lack of advanced Physics knowledge. Because there were a few areas where I almost understood what he was saying about the ancient physics being a unified field theory that modern physicists have been trying to develop. that would make a lot of sense if you accept the idea that we, as a species have devolved quite a bit from our very ancient and forgotten origins. If this topic interests you, then you may very well enjoy this book, but personally, I wouldn't mind a more "dumbed-down" version instead.
