Also on Amazon.com, I have reviewed a book by Frank Joseph entitled Atlantis and 2012. This book by Edward Malkowski follows closely along the heels of Joseph's research by synthesising the findings of John Cadman (who wrote the Foreword), John Anthony West and Robert Schoch, Christopher Dunn and Sir William Flinders Petrie, Dr. Paul LaViolette, John Burke, Philip Callahan, and a number of others.
In the Introduction and first three chapters, Malkowski summarises key research, old and new, dealing with cataclysms that may have befallen earth in pre-history, the sophisticated use of granite in ancient Egypt, the now recognised erosion of the Sphinx by water, and the preciseness of stone cutting evidencing powered machinery in both upper and lower regions of the country.
Perhaps, most importantly, the Introduction, called "Apocalypse Now," presents a thesis that a previous, advanced civilisation which fashioned the stones of ancient Egypt was catastrophically destroyed. Almost nothing was left for subsequent populations to recognise how such monumental constructions were accomplished.
This theory is effectively presented by briefly recounting a documentary entitled `Life After People' in which "experts in civil engineering and geology testify to the speed in which civilisation's infrastructure would erode into nothing... Only objects made from the hardest rock or the thickest concrete would survive." There would also be no evidence left of the tools and machinery that made those objects.
However, it is in Chapter 4 that the hypothesis takes on new and added proof when Malkowski describes what is termed "A New Rosetta Stone."
At the ancient ruins of Abu Rawash on the Giza Plateau, a distance away from the trio of recognised pyramids, on a smaller plateau nearly 500 feet above the adjacent terrain, stands another pyramid in ruin. Conventional Egyptologists say it was built to house the burial chamber of King Djedefre, the son of Khufu (Cheops) for whom the Great Pyramid is named.
Malkowski says, "Abu Rawash is a very important site, not so much because it offers a view of a pyramid in progress... but because it contains irrefutable evidence of what was used to cut rock. To this day, the evidence is still there. Since I have never read about this evidence in any journal or seen it addressed in a film documentary, or even seen a picture of it on the Internet, apparently it is an unmentionable artefact, and possibly a secret - indeed, a secret that should be confiscated, hauled away, crated, and hidden, locked away in the basement of the Cairo Museum forever, an artefact that no orthodox archaeologist or Egyptologist would want to mention publicly."
The "Rosetta Stone" artefact is a 4 ft wide, 6 ft long, 10 inch thick smooth granite slab. Malkowski first learned about it from Christopher Dunn in 2006, and nine months later they travelled together to Egypt to see it.
I cannot go into the details of the slab here, except to say the exactness of its shape and dimensions would mystify any experienced machinist and shows conclusive evidence that advanced mechanised equipment produced it.
Malkowski adds, "There is no mistake that a sophisticated technology was responsible for this stone's existence."
He proceeds to describe it in great detail, and continues in subsequent chapters to show other examples of exactness and symmetry in stone carvings from "ancient Egypt" that bear witness to a high technology which can only have existed in pre-dynastic times.
Malkowski relates this high "physical" technology to an advanced "spiritual" technology that was revealed by Schwaller de Lubicz in his analysis of the symbolic meanings of Egyptian art and architecture.
But, what is most important is evidence that the pyramids already existed from a time long before various peoples later came into and inhabited the area.
Malkowski postulates that the Great Pyramid was a "pulse-pumping compression wave generator" which, combined with the other pyramids, underground tunnels, and a network of moats and canals, produced a vibratory effect that acted as a kind of energising "fertiliser" to the crops on the banks of the Nile River. He arrives at this conclusion based on John Cadman's breakthrough work.
In 1999, Cadman began studying and then building a scale model of the inside of the Great Pyramid demonstrating the theories of Edward Kunkel's 1973 book, The Pharaoh's Pump, in which Kunkel maintains the huge structure was built using water locks.
Cadman goes further to say the subterranean portion was a giant, old-fashioned, hydraulic, self-powered ram pump that operated without electricity, and Malkowski spends an entire chapter detailing Cadman's experiment.
Entomologist Philip Callahan is referenced for his studies connecting Ireland's round towers with natural weather phenomena and their low frequency radio wave effect on greatly increasing crop yields. Callahan also found that insect antennae contain many different shapes that enhance resonance, including tower and pyramid forms.
In short, Malkowski maintains that "the Great Pyramid was a generator for the production of an electric field (ionization of the atmosphere) and that all the other pyramids downrange on the west bank of the Nile were part of an ELF-based fertiliser system," and that they existed long before dynastic Egypt adapted them for its own use.
If, he concludes, cataclysms befell Earth many thousands of years ago as Paul LaViolette postulates, and as so many myths from different cultures propound, in all likelihood the remnants of any "Civilization X" from 40,000+ years ago would have long since disappeared.
As our own civilisation continues to make the kinds of fascinating discoveries Malkowski describes, I believe we may sooner than later find history to be quite different from what we thought it was.
