“Most of what you think you understand about ancient Egypt, you don’t understand at all. For instance, the pyramids, or at least three… What we know as the Great Pyramids on the plains at Giza were not tombs for any pharaohs. They were temples of initiation, and the initiation that the ancient Egyptians performed was much like the initiation of George H. W. Bush and his son George W. Bush in the Crypt. Why did you think they called it the Crypt at Yale University?
To understand the origin of the vast subject, alchemy, we must let go of the fun-house lenses and look clearly at what the remains of the ancient Egyptian culture can tell us. So, forget everything you’ve ever been taught. When we do this, two things immediately jump out at us.
1) The ancient Egyptians were the most scientifically advanced culture on the planet up until the present day, if we have indeed caught up with them.
2) Their science, in fact their entire culture seems to be revealed rather than developed. You cannot find a point in Egyptian history where they were learning what they had. They had it from the beginning.
Talk about mysteries!
The Egyptians claimed that their knowledge was derived from the actions of the divine forces in what they called the “First Time” or the “Zep Tepi”. This body of knowledge was passed down through the ages by a group known as… the Company of Horus, or the full body of adepts known as the congregation of the mysteries. Remember, Osiris was the doctrine, Isis was the church, and Horus represented the full body of the congregation of initiates. Each pharaoh down to Roman times was an initiate to the Company of Horus (and so privy to this secret knowledge) and the symbol was, in those days, the emblem of the head of the Cobra upon the forehead. Remember they’re also called the Order of the Dragon; the Order of the Snake, the followers of the Luciferian Philosophy; what some of you call Satan?
We can think of this secret knowledge as the core of Alchemy. In its broadest sense, however, as we look closer at what the Egyptians tell us about their science we find that it is based upon an intimate understanding of the stars. We also find that it is coded somehow into many of the ancient monuments that have existed in Egypt for centuries… The sum total of human knowledge was always built into the buildings of the culture of all of the ancient civilizations.
These monuments, such as the Sphinx and its temple point to an even more ancient civilization from which the Egyptians recovered their knowledge. In that sense, the knowledge of the Egyptians of which Alchemy is a half-remembered fragment, is the lost science of the last evolutionary societal epoch. But if its true, what happened to end this epoch? The legends say that the great catastrophe destroyed this advanced culture and modern scientific evidence tends to bear that out.”
