The Sphinx Hall of Records: Truth or Tall Tale?
You’ve seen it in the pictures. The Great Sphinx, in Giza, Egypt, is breathtaking all its own, standing about 65 feet high with the Great Pyramid as a backdrop. Tourists from all over the world flock to the site to witness the architectural feat (and of course, pose for pictures next to it). But what if there were more hidden beneath the surface? Some believe there are, in fact, many secrets beneath the Great Sphinx of Giza, namely the Hall of Records, a library full of hidden information. The mystery of the Sphinx begins to unravel with a closer look.
Theories About the Hall of Records
The Hall of Records is said to house piles of documents, scrolls, and other materials with information regarding the lost continent of Atlantis or even extraterrestrials. Some even believe the hall replicates works from the lost Library of Alexandria as well.
Its scholars also attest that the Hall of Records could contain crucial information about the history of Ancient Egypt, too. However, mainstream scholars firmly state there is no such evidence the Hall of Records exists.
To this, believers claim further investigation has been blocked by the Egyptian government and mainstream archaeologists.
It is said the discovery of the Hall of Records would have significant effects on our understanding of world history, specifically the origin of the Ancient Egyptian civilizations. While some write off the study as pseudoarchaeology, others maintain the Hall of Records could indeed be real.
The existence of such an underground library was referenced by Herodotus, who said in Histories’, Book, II, 148:
“This I have actually seen, a work beyond words. For if anyone put together the buildings of the Greeks and display of their labors, they would seem lesser in both effort and expense to this labyrinth … Even the pyramids are beyond words, and each was equal to many and mighty works of the Greeks. Yet the labyrinth surpasses even the pyramids.”
The Psychic Readings of Edgar Cayce
If you asked those from the Association for Research and Enlightenment, a multi-million-dollar organization in Virginia Beach in the United States, they would likely direct you to the teachings and prophecies of Edgar Cayce, an American psychic. Cayce prophesied the Hall of Records would be discovered and opened between 1996 and 1998, connected to the second coming of Christ.
Among Cayce’s purported prophecies is that an Atlantean flying vehicle is buried under the Sphinx and was used to build the Great Pyramid, as well as travel underground tunnels to habitable areas of inner Earth. Other architectural wonders have also been mentioned in the prophecies, including Mayan temples and the holy mountains of Tibet.
Cayce made many references in his prophecies to the hall’s location under the Sphinx: “another in the place of the records that leadeth from the Sphinx to the hall of records, in the Egyptian land,” “It lies between — or along that entrance from the Sphinx to the temple — or the pyramid; in a pyramid, of course, of its own.” and “for the preservation of the data, that as yet to be found from the chambers of the way between the Sphinx and the pyramid of records.”
Supporters of Cayce maintain that his work confirms the existence of the Hall of Records beneath the Great Sphinx.
Seismic Tests of Underground Spaces
You might wonder why the obvious has not been done — in other words, why has nobody gone in and looked to see whether there is, in fact, a Hall of Records under the Great Sphinx?
The answer to that is apparently, “It’s complicated.”
According to a report on a University of Arizona website, a series of expeditions indeed took place between 1991 and 1993, led by an independent Egyptologist named John Anthony West, who conducted seismic and geological surveys around the Great Sphinx.
Their findings indicated the pattern of erosion on the Sphinx suggests it was carved at the end of the last Ice Age when heavy rains fell in the eastern Sahara. In other words, more than 12,000 years ago — not 4,500, as is widely believed.
Seismic surveys from their research also suggested there may be unexplored tunnels and cavities in the bedrock beneath the Sphinx, including a large rectangular chamber 25 feet beneath the monument’s front paws.
However, further substantiation of these claims is said to have been blocked by the Egyptian government.
The question remains: Is, as the NBC television film “The Message of the Sphinx” attests, the Great Sphinx sitting on a huge secret?
Ancient Footprints Evidence of 'Ant People' of Hopi Indian Lore
Ancient footprints buried for thousands of years are revealing their true date of creation thousands of years earlier than we thought and shaking up the conventional timeline. Could this validate Hopi stories of ancient Ant Men?
White Sands National Park in New Mexico today, is mostly chalky white desert and sand dunes, but thousands of years ago this was a temperate zone centered around the massive Lake Otero filled with flourishing plants, wildlife, and now we can confirm, humans. Ancient footprints originally discovered in 2009 have been radiocarbon dated to be from 21,000-23,000 years ago. Previous estimates of human habitation in this area were 13,000-16,000 years ago.
Ancient stone tools, footprints, and rock layers are difficult, if not impossible, to date. But scientists have found seeds from ancient spiral seed grass, mingled with some footprints. Those seeds were able to be carbon dated, proving humans were in the area and thriving thousands of years earlier than previously thought.
Jack Cary, researcher and author of “Paranormal Planet” commented on the significance of this discovery. “This is a huge point to shove back human migration. That means that you’re going to have to rewrite everything that’s associated in our science related to human migration. That is a huge problem for our anthropologists and for accepted science as a whole,” Cary said. “As investigators into ancient mysteries, this is one of the biggest things that we could ever discover because now we have absolute, inarguable proof that humans were there at this exact period of time.”
Why are investigators of ancient mysteries so excited about this find?
“This is the same area, the same place, and the same time that the Hopi Indians claimed that the so-called Ant People took them underground during a massive global cataclysm because the world basically caught fire according to their ancient, historical oral traditions. And this same event, strangely enough, can be found in the Book of Enoch when he describes a cometary impact. All of this would date back to around the same time period,” Cary said.
“And we have to remember that in Hopi language ‘Anu’ means ‘Ant’ and ‘Naki’ means ‘Friend,’ so the word Annunaki to the Hopi means ‘Ant Friends.’ And it was these ‘Ant Friends’ who twice took them underground, the second being when the last Ice Age actually melted creating a global flood that has been recorded in ancient histories worldwide. Now we have radiocarbon dated proof that there was in fact, human habitation in the right place, at the right time to make those oral histories viable.”
