The central premise of my theory is that the Great Pyramid is
a religious monument, whose full significance may be apprehended
only through a true understanding of ancient Egyptian religion.
Crucially, however, I argue that Egyptian religion was not simply
a Sun cult, as Egyptologists believe, but rather a ‘cult
of creation’, i.e. a cult whose primary aim was to celebrate
and re-enact perpetually the myth of the creation of the Universe.
Accordingly, I reinterpret the Pyramid’s architecture in
the light of creational mythology, this being a radically different
perspective from that which has been adopted by Egyptologists during
the past two hundred years.
creational approach to the mystery of the Great Pyramid facilitates
progress on several fronts simultaneously.
Firstly, the symbolism
of the Pyramid. Secondly, the amazing size and precision of the
Pyramid. And thirdly, the Pyramid’s unique interior architecture.
Symbolism of the Great Pyramid
to Egyptologists, the true pyramid (i.e. the smooth-sided pyramid)
was a solar symbol,
its shape signifying the rays
of the Sun falling to the earth. In keeping with this theory,
capstone, benbenet, is held to have been a solar icon or ‘Sun-stone’.
according to my cult of creation theory, the true pyramid
was actually a creational symbol, as evidenced by
the fact that
its capstone, benbenet, symbolised the insemination of
the sky. I therefore argue that the Pyramid’s shape encoded
the mystery of the creation, and conveyed the entire story
in a single hieroglyph.
But further elaboration of this idea must be reserved for
my books ‘Pyramid
of Secrets’ and ‘The Midnight Sun’, since
this is a matter of the highest sensitivity.
Size and Precision of the Great Pyramid
huge size of the Great Pyramid is unexplained by Egyptology.
No king needed a tomb this
big; nor does
explain it. Some Egyptologists therefore regard the
Pyramid as a colossal
waste of time and energy, whilst others suspect that
it, and the other giant pyramids, functioned as job
for the creation of the state.
precision of the Pyramid is also a baffling mystery. As the Egyptologist
Lehner put it: ‘Why such phenomenal precision?
For the royal designers such exactitude may have
been imbued with symbolic and cultic significance that now
creational approach to the Great Pyramid provides a unique explanation
of its size and precision. However,
is too sensitive
to be recounted here and must be reserved for readers
my books. Suffice to say that the Pyramid is to
be understood as a labour
of religious devotion, its size and precision symbolising
idea of perfection that its shape represented.
Unique Interior Architecture of the Great Pyramid
Great Pyramid is unique in that several of its chambers are built
in its superstructure.
the Queen’s Chamber, the Grand Gallery,
and the King’s
Chamber, which are connected together by a
series of narrow passages.
many years, Egyptology assumed that the
king had changed his mind as to his burial
and had raised
burial chamber in order to protect it from
tomb robbers. The highest room – the
King’s Chamber – was thus the
tomb of choice.
recent years, this ‘change
of mind’ theory has been
rejected in favour of the idea that all
of the chambers were planned together from
outset. According to this view, the various
had funerary roles (the exact nature of
which remains uncertain), with the King’s
Chamber again being the king’s final
whichever view is taken, Egyptology believes that the
highest room – the King’s
Chamber – was
the tomb chamber, as evidenced by the
presence there of the granite sarcophagus.
was the king really buried in the
hard facts of the matter are these: the King’s
Chamber sarcophagus was found broken
and empty; no trace of the king’s
body has ever been found in the Pyramid,
no direct evidence exists of a human
burial in the King’s Chamber,
and no reliable record has ever been
unearthed of a king having being
or removed from, either the sarcophagus
or the Pyramid.
seriously, the idea of the king being buried at
a great height in
the Pyramid’s superstructure
goes against a fundamental principle
of Egyptian religion – ‘the
body to earth, the spirit to the
sky’ – which dictated
that the mummy be buried at ground
level or below.
therefore follows, incontrovertibly, that Khufu’s
burial in the King’s Chamber
is but a theory, and a rather
dubious theory to boot. And this
like any other in Egyptology,
should be regarded with a healthy
of scepticism and subjected
to tests, including the ultimate
test of good common sense.
is where my creational theory
of the Egyptian pyramid comes
the solar interpretation of Egyptian religion, the position
vis-a-vis the pyramid
is a moveable feast. Egyptologists
thus argue that, despite
the general rule to place the tomb
the pyramid, the architect
into the monument’s
superstructure, in a bold
attempt to keep robbers
at bay, or, by another theory,
to seek an identity
with the Sun-god in the horizon.
Under the creational interpretation
of Egyptian religion, however,
this argument becomes wholly
untenable, since it was a
fundamental rule that the
body of the king
in the earth, beneath the
pyramid, in order that his
spirit, would become one
with the pyramid; this in
religious axiom ‘the
body to earth, the spirit
to the sky’.
That the architect of the
Pyramid would have broken
rule is inconceivable, for
it would have destroyed the
vital magic of the pyramid
building ritual. Accordingly,
I reject the orthodox
theory that Khufu was buried
in the King’s Chamber,
at a height of 140 feet in
the monument’s superstructure.
scene is thus set for a
radical reappraisal of
of the Great Pyramid.

king’s true tomb
