Climbing the Pyramid: Rediscovering Maya Mysteries from Chichen Itza's Great Pyramid - Victoria Thomas & David Bjrokman 1999

Amazon Synopsis: The mighty, mysterious Chichen Itza pyramid has a profound effect on everyone who visits, and Climbing the Pyramid gives excellent insight into why people love it and revere it.

The great seers and astronomers who built this mountain constructed it as a portal between time and no-time. Using stone as their "hardware," the Itza programmed their pyramid to display the "serpent descending" on March 21, reflecting the relationship of the earth and its people to the sun and stars. This is where the shamans offered their blood to manifest the gods and ancestors as the Vision Serpent, and now even its most casual climber stands where the earth meets the cosmos.

Upon climbing the pyramid, the author and photographer pondered its powerful effect, and have put their insights into its mystery and history in Climbing the Pyramid. In this charming, personal, documentary-style account of the site, they present information on the meaning of the pyramid according to Maya shamans and archeologists; the Maya calendar; Maya prophecies; Maya history; and the pyramid's spring equinox phenomenon on March 21. Plus, 135 stunning, B&W, documentary photos virtually place you on the pyramid.

In addition, one chapter, "Tao of Up," considers climbing the pyramid as a spiritual journey with wisdom that can be used in everyday life.

If you're a traveler going to the Chichen Itza pyramid, you'll want this excellent guide. If you've already experienced the pyramid's power, you'll treasure this unique memento of your journey.

The Giza Power Plant: Technologies of Ancient Egypt - Christopher Dunn 1998

Amazon Synopsis: Did a highly advanced civilization exist in prehistory? Is the Giza Pyramid a remnant of their technology? Then, what was the power source that fueled such a civilization? The technology of harmonic resonance, claims renowned master craftsman and engineer Christopher Dunn. In a brilliant piece of reverse engineering based on twenty years of research, Dunn reveals that the Great Pyramid of Giza was actually a large acoustical device!

By its size and dimensions, this crystal edifice created a harmonic resonance with the Earth and converted Earth's vibrational energies to microwave radiation. The author shows how the pyramid's numerous chambers and passageways were positioned with the deliberate precision to maximize its acoustical qualities. This may be the same technology discovered by Nikola Tesla and the solution to our own clean energy needs.

Pyramid Quest: Secrets of the Great Pyramid and the Dawn of Civilization - Robert M. Schoch & Robert Aquinas  McNally 2005

Amazon Synopsis:The Egyptologist acclaimed for re-dating the Great Sphinx at Giza sets his sights on one of the true mysteries of antiquity: the Great Pyramid of Giza.

What is the Great Pyramid of Giza? Ask that basic question of a traditional Egyptologist, and you get the basic, traditional answer: a fancy tombstone for a self-important pharaoh of the Old Kingdom. This, Egyptologists argue, is the sole finding based on the data, and the only deduction supported by science.

By implication, anyone who dissents from this point of view is unscientific and woolly-minded-a believer in magic and ghosts. Indeed, some of the unconventional ideas about the Great Pyramid do have a spectacularly fabulous ring to them. Yet from beneath the obvious terms of this controversy, a deeper, more significant question arises: how is it that the Great Pyramid exercises such a gripping hold on the human psyche- adding cryptic grace to the back of the one-dollar bill and framing myriad claims of New Age "pyramid power"?

In Pyramid Quest, Robert M. Schoch and Robert Aquinas McNally use the rigorous intellectual analysis of scientific inquiry to investigate what we know about the Great Pyramid, and develop a stunning hypothesis: This ancient monument is the strongest proof yet that civilization began thousands of years earlier than is generally thought, extending far back into a little-known time. In tracing that story, we come to understand not only the Great Pyramid but also our own origins as civilized beings.


The Pyramids and the Pentagon: The Government's Top Secret Pursuit of Mystical Relics, Ancient Astronauts, and Lost Civilizations - Nick Redfern 2012

Amazon Synopsis:The Pyramids and the Pentagonis a detailed study of how and why government agencies have, for decades, taken a clandestine and profound interest in numerous archeological, historical, and religious puzzles.

Focusing primarily upon the classified work of the U.S. Government, The Pyramids and the Pentagon invites you to take a wild ride into the fog-shrouded past. It's a ride that incorporates highlights such as:

  • The CIA's top-secret files on Noah's Ark
  • U.S. Army documents positing that the Egyptian Pyramids were constructed via levitation
  • Disturbing military encounters with Middle Eastern djinns
  • Claims of nuclear warfare in ancient India
  • Links between the Face on Mars and the pharaohs
  • And many more

Nick Redfern's The Pyramids and the Pentagon clearly and provocatively demonstrates that deep and dark conspiracies exist within the shadowy world of officialdom--conspiracies that have the ability to rock the foundations of civilization, religion, and history to their very core. The strange and amazing secrets of the past are just a heavily guarded government vault away.

Filled with more than 300 color photographs documenting various locations and aspects of the pyramids, this book is a must see.

Dr. Sam Osmanagich has authored 11 books about ancient civilizations and narrated a 12-episode documentary “Search for Lost Civilization” for the state Bosnian television FTVBiH (2007). This documentary was based on his book, Civilizations before the Official History (2005), and filmed in Peru, Bolivia, Easter Island, Costa Rica, Mexico, United Kingdom, France, Germany, Malta, Egypt, Jordan and Lebanon.

In 2005, “Dr. Sam” discovered what turned out to be the first pyramids in Europe near the town of Visoko, Bosnia-Herzegovina. In 2008, Dr. Osmanagich hosted an archaeological conference in Sarajevo which fueled controversy about his discovery dividing the archaeological community. He will host the second archaeological conference in September of 2012 in Sarajevo.

Excavation on the vast complex has been ongoing and run by his non-profit Archaeological Park: Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun Foundation since 2006 compiling more and more evidence to validate his claims. To date the excavation has yielded 5 pyramids of various sizes as well as a vast labyrinth of underground tunnels and a pyramid that is 30% larger than the largest structure on the Giza Plateau.

Dr. Osmanagich is principal investigator of this project which has yielded some of the pioneering electromagnetic measurements in the pyramids. He is known worldwide as an expert on pyramids and has investigated the sites of pyramidal structures in China, Mauritius, Canary Islands, Egypt, Peru, El Salvador, Guatemala, Bolivia, Honduras, Mexico etc.

Dr. Osmanagich holds a Ph.D. in Mayan Studies and is a Foreign Member of the Russian Academy of Natural Sciences of Moscow, one of the most respected scientific institutions in the world. He lectures around the globe and is also a member of the Archaeological Society of Alexandria.

The Secret of the Great Pyramid - Bob Brier & Jean-Pierre Houdin 2009

Amazon Synopsis: A decade ago, French architect Jean-Pierre Houdin became obsessed by the centuriesold question: How was the Great Pyramid built? How, in a nation of farmers only recently emerged from the Stone Age, could such a massive, complex, and enduring structure have been envisioned and constructed? 

Laboring at his computer ten hours a day for five years—creating exquisitely detailed 3-D models of the Pyramid's interior—Houdin finally had his answer. It was a startling revelation that cast a fresh light on the minds that conceived one of the wonders of the ancient world.

Written by world-renowned Egyptologist Bob Brier in collaboration with Houdin, The Secret of the Great Pyramid moves deftly between the ancient and the modern, chronicling two equally fascinating interrelated histories. It is a remarkable account of the step-by-step planning and assembling of the magnificent edifice—the brainchild of an innovative genius, the Egyptian architect Hemienu, who imagined, organized, and oversaw a monumental construction project that took more than two decades to complete and that employed the services of hundreds of architects, mathematicians, boatbuilders, stonemasons, and metallurgists. Here also is the riveting story of Jean-Pierre Houdin's single-minded search for solutions to the mysteries that have bedeviled Egyptologists for centuries, such as the purpose of the enigmatic Grand Gallery and the Pyramid's crack.

The Solution of the Pyramid Problem or, Pyramid Discoveries with a New Theory as to their Ancient Use - Robert Ballard 1882

From Foreword: With the firm conviction that the Pyramids of Egypt were built and employed, among other purposes, for one special, main, and important purpose of the greatest utility and convenience, I find it necessary before I can establish the theory I advance, to endeavor to determine the proportions and measures of one of the principal groups. I take that of Gïzeh as being the one affording most data, and as being probably one of the most important groups.

I shall first try to set forth the results of my investigations into the peculiarities of construction of the Gïzeh Group, and afterwards show how the Pyramids were applied to the national work for which I believe they were designed. (Includes mathematical concepts.)   Read online or download
