"For those who possess the keys of symbolism the doctrines of Hermes can never be lost; amidst all their ruin, the monuments of Egypt are as as so many scattered leaves which can be collected and the book of those doctrines thus reconstructed entirely."

Robert Bauval's Website "Since the publication of THE ORION MYSTERY in February 1994 (see books page) much water has flowed under the bridge... Graham and I then pursued the quest together with the publication in 1996 of KEEPER OF GENESIS which took us deep into the haunting metaphysical questions of the origins of human intellect and in hot pursuit of what we have come to term 'the quest for the science of immortality'... Finally in 1999 I wrote SECRET CHAMBER, which explored the deeper layers of the Giza quest and made the linkage between the ancient 'magical knowledge' and the Hermetic Tradition that carried it across the ages and into the mainstream of our modern western intellectual and esoteric tradition".

Atlantis

Corroborating Evidence on the Reality of Atlantis "Many critics of Atlantis insist that, besides Plato's dialogues, Timaeus and Critias, there is no other independent evidence provided by ancient authorities on the matter. Nothing could be farther away from the truth. Indeed, the ancient myths and traditions of most nations center on the legend of the Flood and on the destruction of Paradise, the original focus of Civilization that is no other than Atlantis."
Physical Evidence of Atlantis - Scott Stones "The ruins of temples dated at 12,000 years old have been found near Bimini, Bahamas. Megalithic structures are not supposed to be in the Bahamas."
  BBC News: Satellite Images of Atlantis Satellite photos of southern Spain reveal features on the ground appearing to match descriptions made by Greek scholar Plato of the fabled utopia.
Atlantis Articles and Sources
Atlantis Found "When Soviet oceanographers examined their underwater photos taken of the Ampere Seamount, they discovered what seemed to be walls, stairways, and other artificial stonework. The Ampere Seamount is 450 miles west of Gibraltar, just the area where Plato placed Atlantis!"

Pyramids

The American Institute of Pyramidology  "The Great Pyramid, was it built as shown to the left? Probably not...How was it built? Who built it? What is its meaning for planet earth? Who was its designer?"
The Pyramid Matrix and Archaeocryptography.Carl Munck, archaeocryptographer, introduces an ancient Pyramid Matrix, in which monuments - across the globe - encode their exact position with respect to latitude and longitude. The science of decoding these monuments is called archaeocryptography
Pyramid  Dedicated to the proposition that the Great Pyramid is a rational (in the mathematical sense) structure, designed and built by normal people.

Chinese Pyramids  Part 2
Pyramids in China at Cyrstalinks: "The existence of pyramids in China has come in two stages. Most early stories were focused on the existence of "Great White Pyramid." A photograph of this pyramid in the Qinling mountains was taken by Americans in 1945, but remained in military files for 45 years. US Air Force pilot James Gaussman is said to have seen a white jewel-topped pyramid during a flight between India and China during World War II, but there is scant evidence for a source on this story."
Chinese Pyramids
China's Great Pyramid Controversy by Philip Coppens "Despite speculation about the existence of great pyramids in China, archaeologists and bureaucrats have refused to consider even the rumours about such structures. But recent pictorial evidence proves that China’s pyramids are indeed real, rivalling those of Egypt and Central America for their age, size and significance."
