Rogue Egyptologist John Anthony West shared theories, evidence, and interpretation regarding the Sphinx and the pyramids at Giza. It's "deep heresy" to today's scientific establishment that an ancient civilization had skills that surpass our own-- yet that is what they must have had to make these awe-inspiring structures, he argued.
Visiting the Sphinx in-person gave West a sense of "unspeakable antiquity" and pride that human beings had made such a monument. It's meant to signal an "ingress to the Age of Leo," and the last one occurred 10,500 BC, though he believes the Sphinx might have been constructed in the earlier age of Leo which took place at 36,500 BC. Edgar Cayce predicted that a Hall of Records would be found at the base of the Sphinx, and West shared that a cavern under bedrock has been detected by seismograph under the left paw. It appears to be a rectangular shape approximately 36 X 45 feet.
He explored various theories as to how these structures were built:
- They used a technology we don't recognize, which could be hidden in a religious symbol.
- They employed a "soft" technology such as music or sound.
- The work was performed by people in a heightened state of consciousness.
Beyond issues of how and when these grand structures were made, West stressed their religious importance in reconnecting humankind with divine consciousness. Additional sources/material mentioned by West:
First hour guest, geologist Jim Berkland discussed a recent study that indicated Southern California could experience a catastrophic earthquake along the San Andreas Fault. The heavy rainfall of 2004-5 that fell in the L.A. area is an indicator that a 6+ quake could hit the area within 1� to 2 years from that time, he said, citing a similar pattern in San Jose from 1983-4.
