Post 187 – This Artists impression is not exactly as I see the Pyramids when they were finished but it does show the wall around them. Imagine now that the wall was four times as high, the area around would also have been flooded and the background would have been green because this was when the Sahara was not a desert. You can now imagine that the huge dense pyramid was surrounded by about 4 meters depth of water. Some people have said that this was once built to be a power plant that could emit electromagnetism that would light the surrounding area. It is quite possible the ancient people knew how to make light through batteries, whether they would have needed to build such a large object to produce this amount of power is another matter. I personally think that these pyramids were built because a different kind of power was on the wane. Consciousness, we know from Rudolf Steiner, seems to change over long periods of time. We are in a state where we still have individual consciousness right now but we are also in a transition where we are heading back to a form of group consciousness. (More is written about this in my book Grail Bound). Back 12,000+ years ago, Group consciousness was on the decline and we were moving towards an Individual consciousness and this meant that many of their natural abilities (to move between Worlds, to be psychic, empathic, telepathic etc) were declining in strength. These ancient people knew about these cycles and they knew too that they were linked to catastrophes that were most likely linked to the Sun and a repeating mini Nova/Large Solar Flare. These events changed everything on Earth. Many people suffered, some would have died. Volcanoes, Earthquakes and flooding have all occurred in the past in the transitions between the great ages. We are said to be entering the 5th Age now. In these times of transition, knowledge, memory and the connection to the ancestors (which was, back then, a source for help and guidance) was becoming lost or at least harder and harder to do. It was for this reason that the ancients built these monuments here at Giza and at other locations around the World. Please read the next comment.
