If, in fact, these “sons of the sun” were members of a master race who piloted aircraft from one civilization to another, it is possible that they deliberately built their temples and initiation centers in the shape of pyramids so that the vortices of energy, rising from the apices of the structures, would serve as beacons to returning pilots. And the truncated, or flat-topped, or terraced pyramids, which inevitably crop up in every pyramidal civilization, could have been constructed to do double duty as temples and also as landing pads for aircraft.
As we pointed out earlier in this chapter, there is substantial evidence that highly advanced techniques were practiced upon members of ancient civilizations. The practitioners of these techniques were also expert in the art of mummification. In fact, this science was known to members of every pyramidal civilization.
In Chariots of the Gods? Erich Von Daniken 221
points out that the corpses found in Egyptian tombs were apparently embalmed for a corporeal return, since they were buried with a substantial variety of material goods, including money and jewelry. “Drawings and sagas actually indicated that the ‘gods’ promised to return from the stars in order to awaken the well-preserved bodies to new life.”
Von Daniken goes on to speculate that possibly “the pharaoh, who certainly knew more about the nature and customs of the ‘gods’ than his subjects had [reasoned]. ... ‘I must make a burial place for myself that cannot be destroyed for millennia and is visible far across the country. The gods promised to return and wake me up (or doctors in the distant future will discover a way to restore me to life again).’ ”
At first blush, this seems to be a most reasonable theory, particularly in light of the apparent preservative powers of the pyramid, which might very well have aided in preserving the mummy until medical practitioners arrived to restore the body to life. There is however, a serious flaw to this hypothesis: If the mummies were embalmed for the specific purpose of corporeal return, why were the brains and viscera inevitably removed? Is Von Daniken completely wrong in his interpretation of the reason for the elaborate embalming procedures? Or did the embalmers anticipate total organ transplants when their “gods” returned?
One peculiarity to pyramidal structures throughout the world is their lack of capstones. Rarely has a pyramid been discovered with the capstone (if it ever existed) still intact. We are frankly at a loss to
explain this oddity, nor could we find any other researchers who could explain it from an architectural or scientific point of view. The only author who offers any explanation at all is Hall, who writes, in
The Secret Teachings of All Ages:
The size of the capstone of the Great Pyramid cannot be accurately determined, for, while most investigators have assumed that it was once in place, no vestige of it now remains. There is a curious tendency among the builders of great religious edifices to leave their creations unfinished, thereby signifying that God is alone complete. The capstone if it existed was itself a miniature pyramid, the apex of which again would be capped by a smaller block of similar shape, and so on ad infinitum. The capstone therefore is the epitome of the entire structure. Thus, the Pyramid may be likened to the universe and the capstone to man. Following the chain of analogy, the mind is the capstone of man, the spirit the capstone of the mind, and God the epitome of the whole the capstone of the spirit. As a rough and unfinished block, man is taken from the quarry and by the secret culture of the Mysteries gradually transformed into a trued and perfect pyramidal capstone. The temple is complete only when the initiate himself becomes the living apex through which the divine power is focused into the diverging structure below.
For thousands of years, pyramids have tantalizedAncient Egyptian Pyramids :
the imaginations of scholars, historians, architects, archaeologists, and mystics. These great monuments still stand, on remote sites in inaccessible regions of the earth. Massive and mute, they are the guardians
of a wisdom greater than our present civilization has ever known or might ever know.
Possibly, current experiments with pyramids will
provide us the key to discovering the mystery of the
pyramids of the past. Or, they may simply enable us
to utilize the pyramid’s shape to solve many of the
environmental and technological problems of the future.
