This is an aerial photograph of the Giza plateau taken before WW ll. It
appeared without attribution in an article written by Drs. Hawass and Lehner in
Archeology Magazine. The photo was apparently used as filler and was
unaccompanied by further text or explanation by the authors.
It only takes a second or two for the importance of this photograph

With the sun at its lowest point on the southwestern horizon the first
important note is struck by the shadow of the Great Pyramid attributed to the
Pharaoh Menkaur. The tip of the shadow is in perfect synchronicity with the
corner of an ancient temple courtyard. In its effect, the pyramid is acting like
a sundial except its face is square rather than round. Once again, the
architecture at Giza serves to square the circle. The shadow also completes a
3-4-5 right triangle. This alignment marks the winter solstice. As can readily
be seen, at the same moment the shadow of Menkaur reaches the solstice point,
the shadow lines of all three great pyramids fall into perfect alignment. This
phenomena is of obvious intent.
The idea that this is a matter of happenstance is idiotic. It identifies the
building of the three great pyramids as a matter of a completely unified plan.
This is to say that the architectural plans of all three pyramids were completed
before any construction began.
When the shadow tip of Menkaur reaches the corner of the temple wall the
lines of all three pyramids fall into perfect alignment. Click to
Once a year do the Great Pyramids mark, among other things, the start of a
calendrical year. In this case on what we now call December 21st, the shortest
day of the year. This represents a geodetic accuracy that transcends some 4,500
years. From approximately 2600 B.C. to the 20th century as the Christian world
Imagine... an earth commensurate clock with two moving parts... the sun and
the Earth...that is still accurate after 4500 years !
No attribution is given as to the photographer, but it was someone who knew
enough to be at the right place at the right time. Presumably, it was the same
person who also labeled it. Whoever it was knew exactly what they were doing, so
it is reasonable to assume that the labeling in the photo is accurate. We know
where the Wall of the Crow ( with its dead horse,) is. We know where the Nazlet
El Saman is. Therefore it is possible that the area labeled “Khufu Valley
Temple?” is also accurate.
It is completely within the realm of rationality to postulate that the Great
Pyramids had been completed long before the reign of Khufu ( Cheops,) and that
the Khufu Valley Temple, and possibly his tomb, was located at the shadow tip of
the pyramid that now bears his name. At that time, only the priests would have
been aware of the aligning phenomena which only occurred once a year. It is an
auspicious location. That would make the Khufu Valley Temple as identified in
the photo part and parcel of the phenomena occurring on the shortest day of the
year. ( A day celebrated into modern times by various religious groups.)
Like many other geodetic structures, the design of the Khufu Valley Temple
would have incorporated its own observable and calendrical sub-phenomena. The
annual shadow point of the Great Pyramid of Cheops would allow its priests to
very precisely observe the moment of solstice. This location then would be very
auspicious, but would not have been possible until after the great Pyramid of
Cheops had been completed. It may conceal the tomb of the Pharaoh.
The area identified as the Khufu Valley Temple photo is well worthy of
We have in this photograph proof of the spectacularly accurate earth
commensurate design incorporated into the Giza Plateau by the genius of its
unknown designer(s.) From its conception and construction to the present day,
the Pyramid complex at Giza still functions to identify the beginning and end of
the Earth’s annual cycle.
Science being factually based and religion being a matter of mere belief, it
is evident that the scientific facts exhibited with Great Pyramids far outweigh
evidence of religious purpose i.e. that they were built as tombs. Even Dr.
Hawass now admits there is no evidence for the old tomb theory he glorified for
For all three pyramids to align at the moment of the winter solstice , they
must all have been designed as part of a single plan from inception. If the
building of the plateau took the estimated 100 years, and its designer was 30
years old at the time the plans were drawn, and he was not an immortal, the
designer would have died long before construction had been completed. But the
architect surely would have been able to train his successors. Successive
builders would not necessarily have had to understand the plan in its entirety,
but would have been able to construct the later components from the original
blueprints over multiple generations. [Washington,
D.C. Stargate City]
The greatest mystery surrounding the pyramids is not who built them, how they
were built, or why they were built ( although these are important questions,)
but rather who is responsible for their design ? Ancient Egypt was incapable of
educating anyone to the degrees necessary to incorporate the geodetic perfection
represented in the Great Pyramids. Indeed, so called modern man was in the 17th
century of the common era before our academic skills even allowed us to identify
the mathematics and geometry known by the designers of the Giza Plateau. It is
only in the last 20 years that we have re-discovered macrocosmic Pi [Science
of the Maker] We do not even have legendary accounts of any ancient school,
university, or temple system that possessed this knowledge.
Modern archeology references a man named Amenhotep as the architect of both
the Saqqara and Giza pyramids complexes, but this attribution is inadequate in
more ways than one. So who was the invisible genius who gave the plan with its
Earth commensurate scale? Where did he come from? Where did he get his
knowledge? Did he come to it by himself in one lifetime, or had he been trained
elsewhere, by others ? Why is it he left no specific personal identification to
history? Certainly whoever he may have been, it is extraordinary that he could
have accomplished this unrivaled feat of design, engineering, and construction
without leaving a footprint or other mark behind. We do not even know his name.
It would seem this person, and the Pyramids themselves, have been deliberately
and specifically excluded from the elaborate hieroglyphics, statuary, and
documentation that otherwise characterizes the ancient Egyptian civilization.
Yet this architect remains invisible in history. Great genius with out ego.
The base Great Pyramid of Cheops divides the surface of the Earth into equal
squares. It identifies the circumference of the Earth as a whole number. The
circumference is in inverse proportion in Time to a macro-cosmic expression of
Pi even to nine decimal places. It establishes the ratio we call Pi as the
universal constant of Time and Space. Its sacred geometry is the basis for all
subsequent schools ( Pythagorean and Euclidean.) It gives us the scale by which
the Science of the Maker may be identified by the Science of the Made. It
provides the long sought linkage between the measures of Time and Distance. It
represents applied science unsurpassed in modern times.
The answers to who, why, when, and how are all contained within the Great
Pyramid of Cheops.
An entrance has been identified.
The time has come to re-open Cheops.
