Robert, here's another video I watched recently that works up to precession as the grand finale realization near the end. But what they touch on - that I don't recall us ever touching on - is the equatorial type line running around the globe from Easter Island, to Peru, through Dogon country, Giza, and beyond until coming back to Easter Island again (most of this is covered from 1:00 forward). And how this equitorial type line corresponds to magnetic north, as opposed to the north polar axis. It's like an offset equitorial line, perhaps purposely marked out around the globe to call attention to magnetic north.

What are your thoughts on the conclusions presented here?

Tat, thank you very much for sharing this documentary on the Egyptian Pyramids and their mysterious relations to other ancient sites. I thought the approach was entirely scientific, and did not detect anything that strayed from a meticulous empirical approach. The makers gave plenty of time to those who seek to explain away the mysteries. I highly recommend it.

As they quote Sherlock Holmes, when you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth.

The similarity in construction method between Egypt and Peru is highly improbable by chance. The similarity in writing between Easter Island and Pakistan is highly improbable. The length of the cubit as pi/6 meters is highly improbable. The location at the point of maximum longitude and latitude covered by land suggests global knowledge. The building of the pyramids in 20 years, as proposed by conventional archaeology, is not possible. The precision and scale of design and construction, and the encoding of global, astronomical and mathematical ideas, indicate that the pyramids are a mystery.

The Great Pyramid of Giza squares the circle. John Taylor discovered the perimeter of the Pyramid divided by double its height = pi, as presented in his book The Great Pyramid: Why Was It Built? And Who Built It?, published in 1859. Imagining another pyramid underneath the pyramid produces the perfect solid, the octahedron. Other ideas about the pyramid not covered in this documentary include the 'airshafts' pointing to stars, and the non-use of fire for light in the interior. The discussion of the flood does not reference the rise of sea level by 120 meters at the end of the last ice age. And the stela between the paws of the sphinx indicates the Leo-Aquarius axis of the golden age. A further claim, which sounds plausible to me but may be incorrect, is that evidence of weathering suggests the pyramid is ten thousand years old.

The documentary shows many stone carvings that could not be done by traditional methods, and which are seen in South America as well as Egypt and Easter Island.

These large complex ideas found their way into the Bible, especially in Revelation, with the pervasive secrecy of ancient cosmic religion about precession as the guiding principle of myth. One mathematical mystery in Revelation that could not have been known to ancient astronomy is the division of the holy city into 144 cubits. In terms of the apparent use of the holy city as a metaphor for precession, this number matches to the main signal period of the solar system as a whole.

Speculating on all this difficult material, the complete lack of evolutionary precedent for the high technology of the pyramids, their similarity to mysterious constructions elsewhere in the world, the geomagnetic global circumference described in the documentary, and their apparent use as signals to the distant future, makes it highly questionable whether humans could possibly have built them without help from a higher civilization.

I have so many questions now after seeing this video. Like the pyramidian. Is it supposed to be placed on top of the pyramid at a certain time?

perhaps this equatorial chain of stone structures were built to hold magnetic north from flip flopping ... there's a lot to consider and speculate on...

Magnetic north is held in place by the iron core of the earth. In fact, it is always much closer to the true pole than this documentary suggests. Here is a scientific reconstruction of the apparent polar wander over the last 75 million years. It does not get near the 60 degree mark required as the pole of a circle tilted at 30 degrees to the equator. So that looks to be an error of fact in the documentary, if I understood it correctly.

Ok, I finally found something on the Great Pyramid that makes a lot more sense from a logical perspective. I don't know how I've missed this video for so long. But this is a promising lead in cracking the mystery of the pyramids construction.

^ Thanks for posting that, Tat. I had seen parts of it before but never caught the entire show. It does make the very best case for building the pyramids I've ever seen based on the most credible evidence that exists.

I went to Yucatan to celebrate the solstice and Mayan mythology with a tour titled 'transform at the source'. My interest in this topic of the end of the age relates to a longstanding study of Christian eschatology and the Age of Aquarius. These topics are very badly understood, so here I will discuss the science behind it all, especially the astronomy.

An initial problem is the idea of the 'end of the world'. The King James Bible translates "end of the age" as "end of the world" at Matthew 24:3, illustrating that a conventional religious concept of 'age', understood as a social framework of meaning for the zeitgeist, is readily confused with 'world', in the sense of worldview or paradigm, and then this is in turn linked to the apocalyptic ideas of the four horsemen and second coming of Jesus Christ.

On this 'end of the age' model, the Mayan prophecy, whose provenance is somewhat dubious, is interpreted as a marker of a paradigm shift, the slow emergence of a new way of thinking involving a natural spirituality and respect for indigenous cultures, structured arould the astronomical cycle of precession of the equinox, the 25765 year long wobble of earth's axis. New Age thinking links this clicking over of the Mayan calendar Long Count to the shift of the equinox point from Pisces to Aquarius some time this millennium.

My study of this topic has focused on a search for any possible scientific meaning. It is widely thought that precession has no actual impact on the earth. But the fact is that precession dumped a mile thick pile of ice on New York City 20,000 years ago. The science of climate change understands precession as the driver of the 21600 year cycle of glaciation, due to changing levels of light and dark around the seasons. The low point of the current cycle occurred in 1246 AD, when the December solstice passed the perihelion point, the orbital position closest to the sun. Perihelion is now on 2 January as Phil Plait recently explained at Slate.

So what does all this have to do with the Mayan prophecies of the end of the world? The Long Count, a disputed calendrical period, is asserted by New Age writers to have a period of 5125 years, or 13 Baktuns of 395 years. In terms of the orbital dynamics of precession and climate, this period is close to a quarter of the glaciation cycle of 21600 years (actually 1/4 of the real cycle is more like 5400 years, and complicated by factors such as obliquity and ellipticity). The high point of this cycle was the dawn of the Holocene about 12000 years ago, when the June solstice was at perihelion, the start of the current interglacial period.

If we divide this 'Great Year' climate cycle of 21600 years into four 'seasons', then 'summer' lasted for about 5400 years until 4500 BC when the equinox was at perihelion, 'autumn' ran from then to 1246 AD, and we are now in a cosmic winter, at the start of a 10,000 year ascent to the next 'golden age' of cosmic summer. It is intriguing on this analysis that 'autumn' matches to the period defined by the Abrahamic faiths as the 'fall' from grace since Adam was a boy (not) in 4004 BC, and has a rough match to the now ending Mayan Long Count. Here is a diagram illustrating this orbital climate cycle over roughly 20,000 years.[/URL]

A further error in the common interpretation of the Mayan prophecy is the fact that the solstice already crossed the galactic equator in 1998, and never goes near the galactic centre. However, the solstice point moves so slowly, one degree of arc every 71.6 years, or a bit faster if you factor in the spinning of the orbit itself, that 2012 is a reasonable guess. But we don't really know if the Mayans made that guess, especially since the fanatic Spanish burnt nearly all their books. Anyway, it is still interesting in terms of the naked eye astronomy of precession.

The point where the ecliptic (zodiac) crosses the Milky Way galaxy can readily be understood as the 'Chi Rho' cross point used in Christianity and seen by Constantine at the battle of Milvian Bridge. Plato also discusses this point in Timaeus as the X marking the meeting of the same (the galaxy) and the different (the zodiac). Apologies if that is more than you need to know, but it does illustrate how this material is central to naked eye cosmology.

There are many dates that could be considered the 'dawn of the Age of Aquarius', based on a wide range of methods, but none have any demonstrated dynamic reality like the Milankovitch cycles. The most interesting apparent resonance is that the solar system 'throbs' with a period of 178.9 years, the wave period of the centre of mass caused by the cycles of the gas giants, and this is precisely 1/144th of the earth's orbital wobble period of 21765 years, so the zodiac age period of 2148 years stands in 1/12 resonance with both the earth's gyroscope wobble and the pulse of the sun. But that seems to be just an interesting artifact. There is certainly no dynamic effect of distant stars, so all these cycles have to be linked to actual mechanisms of our solar system if they are to have any reality.

At the end of the last post, I mentioned the 179 year cycle of the solar system center of mass. Here is a picture of this wave function of the solar system, from NASA data over 6000 years, showing how each line changes slightly from the one before, as the gas giants slowly drift out of their cyclic alignment, with period exactly 1/12 of a zodiac age.
