In any argument on the Great Pyramid at Giza, the only point on which archaeologists, Egyptologists, scientists and scholars agree is that it was built by Cheops somewhere between 2686 and 2181 B.C. Ibis assumption as we discussed in the previous chapter, there is no irrefutable evidence of the time during which the pyramid was built, by whom it was built, or for what purpose has come to be accepted as fact by most people.

Edgar Cayce, the world’s greatest psychic, said in one of his readings that the Pyramid at Giza was actually built over 10,000 years ago by non-Egyptians. According to Cayce, the Pyramid was not built for purposes of entombment, but as a storage place
for the history of humankind from the very beginning up to the year 1998. This history is allegedly written in the languages of mathematics, geometry and astronomy.
An expert on ancient religious practices, Manly P. Hall, hypothesizes in his book, The Secret Teachings of All Ages, that the Pyramid was built by survivors of Atlantis, the lost continent. It has been suggested that the leading scientists of the Atlantean civilization became aware of an impending disaster and, in order to salvage the treasures and knowledge of their age, emigrated out of the destructive reach of the cataclysm to other lands. One of these lands, theorizes Hall, was Egypt, where the Atlanteans established centers of learning, built, like their native temples, in pyramidal shapes. In these learning centers they hid their secrets, embodied in symbolic language, to be uncovered and understood only by those who were worthy of acquiring and utilizing this sacred knowledge.
In the chapter titled, “The Initiation of the Pyramid,” Hall notes that it is highly unlikely that the Egyptians erected the Pyramid because the interior walls are void of inscriptions, paintings, and other symbolism usually associated with elaborate royal decoration.
Among the tantalizing suggestions offered by Hall in this book is that the Great Pyramid might have been erected before the deluge. He bases this hypothesis on the fact that many sea shells were found at its base.
Hall also hypothesizes that during the time of the Caaliph of Mamoun, around A.D. 820, the Great Pyramid still had its outer casing stones intact. He derives this belief from the fact that the Caliph’s workmen found a smooth glistening surface (the sun’s rays striking the casing stones made each face of the Pyramid give off a brilliant light) with no indication of an entrance. The workmen then decided to create their own entrance by digging straight into the Pyramid. As recounted in Chapter 5, they were finally able to tunnel into one of the passageways, but found no evidence of the legendary treasures for which the Caliph had sent them to search. It is interesting to note, however, that all the casing stones, except two, have disappeared. It is thought that they are in the walls of mosques and palaces throughout Cairo, recut and repolished.
According to Hall, the Pyramid remains as the visible covenant between Eternal Wisdom and the world. Both pyramids and mounds are antetypes of the “Holy Mountain” or the “High Place of God.” The square base means that the Pyramid, or “House of Wisdom,” is solidly founded on Nature and its immutable laws; the angles represent Silence, Profundity, Intelligence and Truth. The south side of the Pyramid signifies Cold, the north side represents Heat, the west side symbolizes Darkness, and the east side, Light. The triangular sides typify the three-fold spiritual power.
The Great Pyramid is thought by Hall to be the “first temple of the Mysteries”; the first structure to serve as a repository for the secret truths which are the certain foundation of all arts and sciences. Hall believes that “the initiator,” or “the illustrious one,” dressed in a blue and gold robe, carrying in his hand a seven-fold key of eternity, dwelt in the depths of the Pyramid. Men entered the portals of the Great
Pyramid and exited as gods and became the illumined of antiquity. The drama of “The Second Death,” would be acted out in the King’s Chamber, where the candidate or initiate would be symbolically crucified and buried in the sarcophagus.
This ritual would allow the initiate to experience the room as a doorway between the material world and the transcendental spheres of nature. Part of the ritual was to strike the sarcophagus producing a tone which has no counterpart in any known musical scale. Upon completion of the secret rites, the neophyte then was reborn, or experienced a “second birth” and consequently experienced and gained all the knowledge of the world.
Hall feels certain that the secret room in the house of the hidden places will be rediscovered one day. This belief is shared by many mystics and psychics. Several predictions for each new year by reputable psychics claim that this room will be found and untold knowledge will once again be available to those who can understand the secrets hidden inside.
It is important to mention here that Atlantis, the so-called lost continent which Hall describes as the birthplace of the creators of the Great Pyramid, is more than a figment of some mystics’ imaginations. It is actually described by Plato in his Critias, as formerly known as Poseidonis. He further notes that the zenith of Atlantean civilization occurred when gods walked with men.
