Overview

John Anthony West's revolutionary reinterpretation of the civilization of Egypt challenges all that has been accepted as dogma concerning Ancient Egypt. In this pioneering study West documents that: Hieroglyphs carry hermetic messages that convey the subtler realities of the Sacred Science of the Pharaohs. Egyptian science, medicine, mathematics, and astronomy were more sophisticated than most modern Egyptologists acknowledge. Egyptian knowledge of the universe was a legacy from a highly sophisticated civilization that flourished thousands of years ago. The great Sphinx represents geological proof that such a civilization existed. This revised edition includes a new introduction linking Egyptian spiritual science with the perennial wisdom tradition and an appendix updating West's work in redating the Sphinx. Illustrated with over 140 photographs and line drawings.

This revised edition of West's revolutionary reinterpretation of the civilization of Egypt challenges all that has been accpeted as dogma concerning this ancient and enigmatic land. It features a new introduction linking Egyptian science with the perennial wisdom tradition and an appendix updating the author's work in redating the Sphinx. Illustrations.

    More tosh

    Like Graham Hancock's books, this is a load of nonsense. Any books whose titles include any of the words 'quest', 'sphinx', 'Holy Grail', 'Ark of the Covenant', 'ancient', 'mysterious', 'secrets', 'Templar', 'alien', 'code', 'supernatural', 'mythic', 'cosmic', are just giving away the fact that they are unscientific rubbish. And isn't it significant that the leading Nazi Heinrich Himmler had a passionate interest in the 'Ark of the Covenant' and the occult? All these books are based on wishes and dreams, but we should all know that children wish, adults decide. Adults who waste any of their time on this sort of nonsense are regressing to a childish time. Adults should not do this. These books are all regressive, reactionary.
