Great Pyramid of Egypt.

The altar to the LORD.
Built by the Hiddekelic Race 13,465 B.C. to 12,098 B.C.

TABLE OF CONTENTS


"Hence, if astronomy shows that the Great Pyramid was planned with reference to a relation between Alcyone of the Pleiades and some pole star, obviously that relation must have been of the highest importance in the cosmological system of the builders—the veritable key, perhaps, to all the wisdom of antiquity." Albert Ross Parsons

APPLICATION OF THE MOSAIC SYSTEM OF CHRONOLOGY IN THE ELUCIDATION OF MYSTERIES PERTAINING TO THE "BIBLE IN STONE," KNOWN AS THE GREAT PYRAMID OF EGYPT.

PREFACE 1895

         The accompanying interpretation of the Great Pyramid is based upon the hidden meaning of the Holy Scriptures as revealed by the lifting of the veil of mystery with which they, the Scriptures, are enshrouded. The One God as the Sublime Unity ruled in the past, and the one Plan was devised by the One God as the Sublime Unity for the creation and establishment of his Kingdom; but, owing to failure of subjugatory mission and to numerous widespread disasters, that which had been revealed to one age passed out of remembrance, and the substance thereof was rerevealed to the succeeding age. The greatness of the interests at stake, however, makes some such system of revelation an absolute necessity, else the Master-mind would, from the first, have ruled with a "rod of iron," thereby leaving untried free agency as a subjugatory and governmental proof on the part of all hosts. Hence, by interpretation, the Great Pyramid becomes a witness of that which God revealed to the builders thereof concerning his great purpose in their day. But, to interpret, the simple history must be as a foundation; wherefore, by patient and persistent researches, the archaeologist lays such a foundation, the historian takes up and records the labors of many, while he who seeks to decipher appeals to both, that no good thing be lost, even as Kenrick states (see "Ancient Egypt under the Pharaohs," preface, vol. i.), "The province of the decipherer and the antiquary has always been held to be distinct from that of the historian, who is only required to follow the best authority that he can obtain." So, in these interpretations, that which has been searched out and recorded as simple history is taken up and treated as allegory harmonizing with the allegories of the Scriptures. The scriptural text used, as heretofore, is the Bible as issued by the American Bible Society, New York, 1860. (Brevier, 12mo.)

     The first great application of the Mosaic system was to unfold the mystery surrounding the Great Pyramid of Egypt. The results were published in a pamphlet, entitled "Application of the Mosaic System of Chronology in the Elucidation of Mysteries Pertaining to the Bible in Stone, known as the Great Pyramid of Egypt." (see References.) This solution proved to be harmonious, and brought out many facts that had heretofore not been touched on by the many writers on Egypt's great monument. The writer of this article was requested by Mr. Latch to secure for him the data showing the heights of the five chambers in the top of the Pyramid. These spaces were discovered and measured by Mr. Davidson and Colonel Howard Vyre. Colonel Vyre's work on the subject was consulted at the Mercantile Library, Philadelphia, and the measurements noted. Now, on taking the same to Mr. Latch, he was surprised to find that he (Mr. Latch) already had them, he having assumed that the five chambers represented the first five creative days, had taken the years of each day, which he had previously computed from the Scriptures, and a simple example in proportion had yielded the same measurements, chamber for chamber, as the actual dimensions of Colonel Vyre. The passages and rooms in the main body of the Pyramid had already given figures that agreed with the Mosaic computations for the sixth creative day.

         The date of building the Pyramid was determined by him at about 13,000 B. C., and the builders the Hiddekelic race, who are described in the Bible as mighty, prudent, scientific and highly educated; such a race of people would have what we call modern machinery and appliances for erecting huge buildings, and the task for them was no harder than it would be for our builders today. Mr. Albert Ross Parsons, in his magnificent work, entitled "New Light From the Great Pyramid," Metaphysical Publishing Company, New York, 1893, quotes very frequently from Mr. Latch's writings, and in speaking of the date of building the Pyramid he makes the following remarks which we take the liberty to quote:

"Jomard likewise refers to the tradition of their antediluvian date. Meanwhile, Edward B. Latch, in his work, "Indications of Genesis," taking for a clue to an occult chronology concealed in the Bible the following passage: "When the Most High divided to the nations their inheritance, when He separated the Sons of Adam, He set the bounds of the people according to the numbers of the children of Israel." (Dent, xxxii 8.)

Exhibits in over fifty diagrams alone, a reach of 31,863 years, Mr. Latch's premises are derived from the King James' translation of the Bible, and his conclusions are given without reference to either profane history, tradition or astronomy. Yet the most remarkable agreement exists between Latch's chronological epochs and allegories of the Scriptures and the precession of the equinoxes through the signs of the Zodiac. When, therefore, Latch from Scriptural premises solely is led to place the era of the Great Pyramid at between B. C. 12098 and 13465, it is at all events a striking coincidence that at that time, in place of the inconspicuous Alpha Draconis we should have as the correlative of Alcyone of the Pleiades in the Pyramid coordination the brilliant star of the first magnitude called "Vega," which ranks as high as fifth among the fifteen largest stars known to astronomy.

     The prophet Isaiah (see Isa. xix. 19, 20) indicates that the Hiddekels established an altar in the midst of Egypt (see Diagram 12) as a sign and witness because of the oppressor; which altar as a sign and witness most probably is manifest as the great Pyramid of Egypt; for if, like the Tower of Babel (Syene), it shall be for a sign and witness in the land of Egypt, then, as a work of art, it must be durable as time itself. The history of the Hiddekelic race develops the fact that they were the most learned of the three races preceding the Deluge; for Isa. iii. 2, 3 records that among them were "the mighty man, and the man of war, the judge, and the prophet, and the prudent, and the ancient, The captain of fifty, and the honourable man, and the counsellor, and the cunning artificer, and the eloquent orator;'' while the Song of Solomon iv. 12-14 likens this race to a garden filled with all manner of pleasant fruits and spices. Jeremiah also likens the daughter of Zion pertaining to the Second Epoch of this age to a delicate and comely woman; which is suggestive of art and science, literature and oratory, and all the nobler branches of intellectual development which crown the growing field of man. It is highly probable, therefore, that this people, which was so eminently qualified, both physically and mentally, should have erected this wonderful monument to the Lord as an altar of witness because of the oppressor.

By Diagram 12 it will be seen that the midst of Egypt is that portion indicating the overlap of the Hiddekels with the Gihons, and, therefore, if this pyramid really is this altar, then it must have been constructed between the years 13,465 B.C. and 12,098 B.C. It is quite probable that Job lived at the time this pyramid was in course of construction; for by Job i. 1, he lived in the land of Uz; which, by the genealogy of the sons of Seir, pertains to the first division of the Gihonic age. That Job belongs to the Gihonic race and not to the Hiddekelic is indicated in Job viii. 8, 9: "For inquire, I pray thee, of the former age, and prepare thyself to the search of their fathers: (For we are but of yesterday, and know nothing, because our days upon earth are a shadow)," which evidently points to the two ages preceding the Gihonic, and also points to the youth of the Gihonic age. That Job belongs to the Gihonic race is further indicated in Job xv. 9, 10: ''What knowest thou, that we know not? what understandest thou, which is not in us? "With us are both the grayheaded and very aged men, much elder than thy father;" in which, by the figure of the three men, Job pertains to the Third age. The knowledge and wisdom of Job is another indication that he lived during the latter days of the wise and learned Hiddekels; while his perfection as a man is still another; the latter being made manifest in the charge to the first semidivision of the Gihonic age (Rev. iii. 4): "Thou hast a few names even in Sardis which have not defiled their garments; and they shall walk with me in white: for they are worthy."

   The Mosaic System of Chronology, which is wholly derived from the Bible, King James translation, not only serves as a key for the reading of mysteries hidden in the Great Pyramid, but it also serves for many that are hidden in the massive Egyptian temples, and in the papyri. The indication must be kept in view that much of the simple history recorded on the walls of these temples, and on the faces of the papyri, is to be taken in an allegorical sense, even as, in the Bible, the histories of Adam, Noah, Abraham, Nebuchadnezzar, David, Solomon, and a host of others possess allegorical meanings. Hence the deciphering of hieroglyphics into simple history becomes, as it were, one of the grand stems which supply nourishment and strength to the superb corolla that blooms above.

THE PHAMPLET

    The Great Pyramid, or that of Cheops, had originally a square base of 764 feet (now reduced to 746), and consequently an area of thirteen acres, and a perpendicular height of 480 feet, now reduced by dilapidation of the summit to 450 feet. The rock around was carefully leveled to furnish a horizontal base for the structure, yet not throughout the whole area, for a nucleus of the native rock has been discovered in the interior, rising, according to the latest account, to the height of 22 feet. The sides now present the appearance of a series of steps, each course projecting beyond that above it; and by these projections it is easy to reach the top, where is a platform of about 30 feet square. But in its original state the pyramid probably presented a perfectly smooth surface. It appears that not a very long time elapsed before a forcible entrance was made or attempted.

     The original opening is, like that of all the other pyramids, in the northern face, but a little on one side of the centre, about 45 feet from the ground, and in the fifteenth course of stones. From this entrance the passage descends at an angle of 26° 41', as in other pyramids; it is of the height and width of 3 feet 5 same straight line and with the same dimensions, the other ascending towards the centre of the pyramid. The upper passage thus entered is continued by an ascent, at an angle of 26° 18', for 125 feet, when it again divides; one branch runs horizontally, with only the descent of a single step, for 110 feet, and terminates in the Queen's Chamber, as it is called, an apartment about 17 feet long, 16 feet wide, and 20 feet high. Returning to the junction of the passages, a well is to be noticed, just at the point of divergence, which descends partly through the masonry of the pyramid and partly through the natural rock, till it meets the prolongation of the descending passage by which the pyramid was entered. It is 191 feet in depth, perpendicular in the first 26 feet, afterwards more or less inclined; its dimensions are 2 feet 4 inches square.

     The great gallery, leading to the King's Chamber, begins where the horizontal passage to the Queen's Chamber goes off. It continues to ascend at the same angle as before; it is 150 feet long, 28 feet high, and 6.5 feet wide; but this width is lessened by a projecting stone seat or ramp, which runs along each side, 19 inches wide and 2 feet high. Holes are cut in it at intervals, which are supposed to have served for the insertion of the machinery by which the sarcophagus was raised. The side walls are formed of eight assizes of stone, which, projecting inward over each other, give the passage the appearance of being arched. A landing-place at the upper end leads into a vestibule, designed to be closed by four portcullises of granite. Three had been lowered; the fourth remained in its original position, the lower part of the groove never having been cut away to allow of its descent. Beyond these lies the principal apartment of the pyramid, the King's Chamber. It is 34 feet long and 17 feet wide; its height is 19 feet; its position is not exactly in the centre of the pyramid, but a little southward and westward of the vertical line. The roof is flat, formed of single slabs of granite, and the side walls on which they rest are of the same material. The sarcophagus, also of red granite, but without hieroglyphics or even ornamental carving, stands north and south; its exterior length is 7 feet 6 inches, and its breadth 3 feet 3 inches.

     It was known, from the researches of Mr. Davidson, who was Consul at Algiers in 1764, that ten feet above the King's Chamber there was a vacant space, thirty-eight feet long and seventeen wide, varying in height from two feet and a half to three feet and a half. Col. Howard Vyse has discovered that there are four more spaces, in the same perpendicular line, of similar dimensions. The four lowest have flat roofs; the highest has its roof formed of blocks, meeting at an angle, and is eight feet and a half in height in the centre. For its ventilation, two small passages were left open, one on the north, the other on the south side, which terminate in the exterior faces of the pyramid.

     If, returning to the point where the upper passage branches off, we continue in the line of the passage of entrance, we find it prolonged for 320 feet from the opening in the side of the pyramid, and with such exactness that the sky is visible from the further end. It then runs for 27 feet further in a horizontal direction, and terminates in a subterranean chamber, immediately under the Queen's Chamber, and 90 feet below the base of the pyramid. It is 46 feet in length and 27 in breadth; no sepulchral remains of any kind have been found in it. There is a passage, 2 feet 7 inches high, issuing from it on the southern side, which continues for a little more than 50 feet, but ends in nothing. Col. Yyse sunk through the floor of this chamber to the depth of 36 feet, without any result. As Herodotus speaks of a communication with the Nile, by means of which its water was introduced, so as to insulate the sepulchral chambers which Cheops constructed for himself, it was natural that it should be sought for, in connection with this, the lowest apartment hitherto discovered.

     Some years ago the author of the following exposition had the privilege of visiting the Great Pyramid, of ascending its colossal steps, and of penetrating through its narrow, ill-ventilated passages to the heart thereof as embodied in the King's and Queen's Chambers. Therefore, because of personal observation, the measurements of this ponderous, awe-inspiring work of art are followed with greatly increased interest, not only on account of the simple history connected therewith, but from the immensity of the allegorical bearings through which history that had passed out of remembrance is again brought to light, and through which history of the future is prophetically revealed. Hence (see Diagram 2) in the elucidation of these bearings the construction and simple measurements of the Pyramid as given above have been taken up and treated in the allegorical sense.

     Now (see Diagram 2), of the Great Pyramid, the base from outside to outside of casing measures 764 feet square and the altitude is 480 feet; but with the casing removed it measures 746 feet square, whereby the altitude as a perfect pyramid becomes reduced to 468 feet. The opening of the main entrance and those of the air channels are established in the pyramid in its reduced form, and hence the pyramid as thus reduced becomes the Pyramid proper, with a slant side measuring 598 feet. Inspection of the diagrams will show that the space from the apex of the Pyramid proper down to the opening of the north air channel is almost, if not quite, equal to the space from the air channel down to the opening of the main entrance. Wherefore, inasmuch as, by the Mosaic System of Chronology, Egypt shadows the Hiddekelic and Gihonic ages, and as the years of these two ages are almost equal, — that is, as 9552 is to 9568 (female line of chronology), — so the Great Pyramid of Egypt shadows in an especial manner the Hiddekelic and Gihonic ages combined. In this light (see Diagram 2) the apex of the Pyramid proper is identified with the creation of the Hiddekelic race, the opening of the north air-channel is identified with the creation of the Gihonic race, and the opening of the main entrance is identified with the creation of the Pisonic race.

     At some distance below the main entrance, say 45 feet, — which is a close approximation to Diagram 1, — something like a forced passage is seen. In the allegorical sense this passage shadows the Deluge of Noah; wherefore the 45 feet on the slant side of the Pyramid from the main entrance to the forced entrance, or its equivalent as a landmark, represent the 1656 years (Mosaic System) from the creation of the Adam of the Pisonic race down to the Deluge of Noah. Consequently, in harmony with this indication, the whole slant side of the Pyramid becomes chronology strictly in proportion therewith.

     By the description of the Pyramid, the main entrance descends for about 93 feet (see Diagrams 1 and 2), — although Kenrick, in his letter-press, gives it as 63 feet, — where it divides, one passage ascending towards the centre of the Pyramid and the other continuing on in the same line. Now, let the ascending passage be produced both ways until it cuts the slant side of the Pyramid (also produced) on the north and cuts the slant side on the south (see dotted lines. Diagram 2). By inspection alone, the indications present themselves that the 36 feet of space between the opening of the south air-channel and the intersection on the south side represent the overlap of the Hiddekelic and Gihonic ages, even as the 45 feet between the main and forced entrances on the north side represent the overlap of the Gihonic and Pisonic ages; and, further, that the space between the main entrance and the point of intersection on the north side, as produced, represents the Pisonic age, yet as by the Mosaic System of Chronology.

     If, therefore, these indications be in harmony with the Mosaic System, then they must stand the test. Wherefore, as 45 feet — which is comparatively a very small unit of measure — represent 1656 years, or the years from the creation of the Adam of the Pisonic race down to the Deluge of Noah, Bible chronology (see Gen. v); as 258 feet represent the Hiddekelic age from the creation of the Hiddekelic race down to the creation of the Gihonic race; as 258 feet represent the Gihonic age from the creation of the Gihonic race down to the creation of the Pisonic; and as 207 feet (simply as measured by scale, see Diagram 2) represent the Pisonic age from the creation of the Pisonic race, so there follows by proportion, —

As 45:258::1656:9494, or to the years of the Hiddekelic age as against the 9552 of the standard chronology. Mosaic System.

As 45:258::1656:9494, or to the years of the Gihonic age as against the 9568 of the standard chronology. Mosaic System.

Also, as 45:207::1656:7617, or to the years of the Pisonic age as against the 7860 of the standard chronology. Mosaic System.

Also, as 45:36::1656:1324, or to the years of the overlap of the Hiddekelic and Gihonic ages as against the 1367 of the standard chronology. Mosaic System.

Also, by totals, there follows as 45:723::1656:26,606 or to the years from the creation of the Hiddekelic race down to the end of the Pisonic age (female line of chronology as years in succession without regarding overlaps) against the 26,980 of the standard chronology. Mosaic System. Hence the chronology thus determined goes far to prove the indication that the slant sides of the Great Pyramid coincide with the Mosaic System in relation to the existence, longevity, and overlaps of the Hiddekelic, Gihonic, and Pisonic ages.

     The King's Chamber is established near the centre of the Great Pyramid, and in it a sarcophagus of red granite is found, thereby indicating this chamber as a receptacle of the dead. But the Great Pyramid specially shadows the Hiddekelic and Gihonic ages; wherefore the King's Chamber, in the allegorical sense, finds place in the overlap of these two ages, and hence shadows the sepulchre of the Hiddekelic and Gihonic races; the same being further borne out by the dimensions of the ground-floor thereof, — viz., 34 feet long and 17 feet wide, — thus giving 17 feet square to each age or race, which is proportionately the same as the longevity of these two ages (see Diagram 2).

     Further, immediately above the King's Chamber five spaces are seen, the roof of the topmost one meeting in a point or angle. This point or angle is significant of a beginning; wherefore, as there are six spaces in all, of which the King's Chamber is one, so, by them, the six chief divisions of the Grand Epoch from the beginning of the Euphratic age down to the overlap of the Hiddekelic and Gihonic ages are indicated, in harmony with the allegorical position of the King's Chamber.

     Now, by continuing the system thus brought to notice, the Queen's Chamber will represent the sepulchre of the Euphratic age, yet as by transmission of blood and characteristics to or upon the Gihonic age or race, while the Subterraneous Chamber will represent the sepulchre of the Pisonic age or race, and also that of the blood and characteristics transmitted to or upon it according to the Mosaic System.

     But the area of the floor of the King's Chamber is 578 square feet, the area of the floor of the Queen's Chamber is 272 square feet, and the area of the floor of the Subterraneous Chamber is 1242 square feet, while the years of the Hiddekelic and Gihonic ages combined are 18,988; wherefore, in verification of the sepulchres in their allegorical pertainings as graveyards of hosts, and hence of years, there follows by proportion as 578:272::18,988:8935, or to the years of the Euphratic age, as shadowed by the allegorical pertaining of the Queen's Chamber against the 6772 + 1965 = 8737 of the standard chronology, female line. Mosaic System. The standard chronology for this period as through the male is 6772 + 2183 = 8955 years.

     The Subterraneous Chamber shadows the sepulchre of the Four Ages of Man as a whole; hence there follows, in harmony with the foregoing, as 578:1242::18,988:40,801, or to the total years of the Four Ages from the beginning of the Euphratic age down to the end of the Pisonic age as against the 40,561 of the standard chronology, male line. Mosaic System; while, from what has gone before, —

     The total years, through the female line of chronology, from the beginning of the Euphratic age to the end of the Pisonic, Pyramid measurement, are 8935 + 18,988 + 7617 = 35,540 as against the 35,717 of the standard chronology, Mosaic System.

     Further, 578 + 272 = 850 square feet as representative of the sepulchral area of the Euphratic, Hiddekelic, and Gihonic ages combined. If, however, the dwellers therein shall be redeemed, then (see Lev. xxvii. 13, 31) the fifth part thereof shall be added thereto. Wherefore 850 / 5 = 170, and 170 + 850 = 1020 as the sepulchral value of the Euphratic, Hiddekelic, and Gihonic ages as represented in the 1242 of the Subterraneous Chamber. Now, 1242 - 1020 = 222 as a sepulchral value for the Pisonic age; but as 8935:7617::272:231, or to the sepulchral value of the Pisonic age as proportional with the Euphratic age; and, again, as 18,988:7617::578:231, or to the sepulchral value of the Pisonic age as proportional with the Hiddekelic and Gihonic ages combined; consequently 1020 + 231 = 1251 as against the 1242 called for by the given measurements of the Subterraneous Chamber into which all are collected as the general graveyard of the creature world.

     It now follows, in harmony with the system by which the years of the Euphratic age and those of the Four Ages of Man combined were determined, that as 578:231::18,988:7588, or to the years of the Pisonic age as against the 7860 of the standard chronology. Mosaic System, and as against the 7617, Pyramid measurement, already obtained.

     By transmission the blood and characteristics of the creature world are preserved and brought down into the Pisonic age, and from the Pisonic age as the land of the living down into the Subterraneous Chamber as the chamber of death. This indication is clearly shadowed by the construction of the Pyramid as viewed from the north side; for the Hiddekelic race, by the shadow, may, from the apex, descend the great stone steps down to the overlap of the Hiddekelic and Gihonic ages, and there, being joined by the Gihonic race, continue their descent down into the overlap of the Gihonic and Pisonic ages, when the whole three, with the burdens they bear, descend the great tube or passage that leads to the Subterraneous Chamber, the common receptacle of the world's dead. In this light the great tube with its adjuncts may represent the Four Ages of Man; consequently (see Diagram 2) 320 + 27 + 46 + 50 = 443, and expresses a value for the Four Ages of Man combined. But (see Diagram 2) after a descent of about 96.4 feet the great tube divides, one passage ascending and the other, as already set forth, continuing on in the same straight line. After an ascent of 125 feet this passage also divides, one part continuing on in the same direction for 150 feet and the other running horizontally for 110 feet. As, therefore, the great tube with its adjuncts expressed a value for the Four Ages of Man, so also the four branches of the tortuous passage proportionally shadow values for the Four Ages of Man. Hence (see Diagram 2) 96.4 feet express a value for the Pisonic age, with a direct communication to the sepulchre of the Pisonic age; the 125 feet express a value for the Gihonic age, with a direct communication to the sepulchre of the Gihonic age; the 110 feet express a value for the Euphratic age, with a direct communication to the sepulchre of the Euphratic age; and the 150 feet express a value for the Hiddekelic age as through the male line of chronology, — that is, with the redemptive fifth added; for the Hiddekelic and Gihonic ages being nearly of the same length, they each can be represented by the same magnitude; wherefore 125 + 25, the redemptive fifth, = 150. This passage also has direct communication with the sepulchre of the Hiddekelic and Gihonic ages; consequently 96.4 + 125 + 1 10 + 125 = 456.4 as a value of the Four Ages of Man against the 443 of the great tube.

     In further verification of the indications thus set forth there follows by proportion as 96.4:125::7617: 9876, or to the years of the Gihonic age, female line of chronology, as against the 9494 of the Pyramid measurement already obtained, and as against the 9568 of the standard chronology, Mosaic System.

Also, as 96.4:110::7617 8691, or to the years of the Euphratic age, female line of chronology, as against the 8935 of the Pyramid measurement already obtained, and as against the 8737 of the standard chronology, Mosaic System.

Also, as 96.4:150::7617:11,853, or to the years of the Hiddekelic and Gihonic ages, severally, male line of chronology, as against the 9494 + 1324 = 10,818 and the 9494 + 1656 = 11,150 of the Pyramid measurement already obtained, and as against the 10,919 and 11,224 of the standard chronology, Mosaic System.

     From the foregoing indications as a whole it becomes manifest that the forced entrance on the north side of the Pyramid was thus introduced by the builders of the Pyramid as a veil, and as though an after-consideration; and so, also, the death which it shadows through the Deluge of Noah, although foreseen, was as an after-consideration following with transgression of the more finished work of the Law. In this light the well or pit which descends from the allegorical junction of the Euphratic, Hiddekelic, and Gihonic ages down to the great tube that leads into the chamber of universal death shadows the valley of the shadow of death, as a consideration also forced through transgression of the Law.

     Now, the allegorical stand-point of the King's Chamber is in the overlap of the Hiddekelic and Gihonic ages; wherefore, as the entrance into this chamber is guarded by four portcullises, so the indication arises that one pertains to each of the Four Ages of Man. As, therefore, at the time shadowed by the position of the King's Chamber three races of men had been created and had fallen into transgression, so three of the portcullises have been lowered to shut them in the sepulchre's fire and gloom, with no escape therefrom, except it be through the yawning pit whose labyrinthine walls are rayless as a sun in second death. The fourth gate, however, remained intact, and hence pertains to the forthcoming Pisonic race; wherefore an indication arises that the Great Pyramid becomes prophetic from the allegorical stand-point of the King's Chamber, — that is, from the overlap of the Hiddekelic and Gihonic ages, — and, if so, then, doubtless, the Pyramid was constructed in the midst of this overlap (see Isa. xix. 18-22; Ezek. xxix. 8-12), and hence, according to Pyramid measurement, about 10,423 years prior to the Deluge of Noah; but by the Mosaic System about 10,540 years prior to the Deluge, or between the years 12,098 and 13,465 B. C.

     It seems almost incredible that the material of which the Pyramid is constructed should remain almost intact until the present time; but the climate, if not preservative, is, at least, but slightly deleterious as compared with that of this country (America). In witness thereof the writer of these lines brought from Egypt — blame the Arabs for the vandalism — a piece of the Sphinx. It appeared to be perfectly solid when it came into his possession; but one day, to his great amazement, although carefully wrapped up, it was found reduced to a mass of dust: it was completely disintegrated. Hence a few years of America's searching atmosphere did a work of dilapidation that centuries of Egypt failed to accomplish.

     The construction of Diagram 3 follows as a sequence of Diagram 2, based upon the Mosaic System of Chronology, in that the Hiddekelic, Gihonic, and Pisonic ages are located and established and the position of the Euphratic age indicated. Wherefore, by construction, the Four Ages of Man (see Diagram 3) become represented by four pyramids, yet as identified with the Great Pyramid.

     It will be found (see Diagram 3) that the height of the Great Pyramid proper that is, without the casing — is 468 feet; the height of the Euphratic age or pyramid as above the Great Pyramid is 189 feet; and that of the Pisonic age as below the Great Pyramid is about 96 feet; whereby a total height of 753 feet is given for the Four Ages. But the base of the Great Pyramid is 746 feet square; consequently the indication becomes well marked that the rectangular solid constructed about the Great Pyramid should be a perfect cube instead of a cuboid, as enclosing the Four Ages of Man, the approximate value as determined for the height varying only seven feet (see Diagram 3, Cube C). Wherefore, by the Mosaic System of Chronology (see Mosaic Scale), let the six creative days be placed in conjunction with this cube, and a counterpart of the King's Chamber with the spaces above it will appear.

     If, now, the Four Ages of Man be represented by a pyramid (see Euphratic age, Diagram 3, as in parenthesis), then a cube may be constructed about the base of this pyramid as the bearer of the blood and characteristics of the creature world from the beginning of the creation, and hence the top of this cube — viz., D. (see Diagram 3) — will represent the beginning of the creation. It will be found that the side of Cube D measures about 1202 feet; wherefore, from the construction, Diagram 3 clearly signifies that something in the Subterraneous Chamber, A, is to something in the King's Chamber, B, as something in Cube C is to something in Cube D.

     Now, the floor of the Subterraneous Chamber is 1242 square feet by the given measurement, and 1251 square feet as derived from the symbolism of the Pyramid. The redemptive fifth of the first value is 207 square feet, and the redemptive fifth of the second value is 208 square feet; consequently 1242 - 207 = 1035 as an estimated value for the Subterraneous Chamber (see Lev. xxvii), and 1251 - 208 = 1043 as an estimated value for the Subterraneous Chamber. Of these values the Lord's tribute is one-tenth (see Lev. xxvii. 32, 33); consequently the Lord's tribute will be 1035 / 10 = 103.5, and 1043 / 10 = 104.3. Wherefore, by the proportion as implied above, there follows as 103.5:18,988::556,516 or 7462 : 102,097,833, or to the years, female line of chronology, from the beginning of the creation to the end of time (C and D being cubes), as against the 101,256,000 of the standard chronology, Mosaic System.

     Also, as 104.3:18,988::556,516 or 7462 : 101,256,000, or to the years, female line of chronology, from the beginning of the creation to the end of time, thereby corresponding exactly with the 101,256,000 of the standard chronology. Mosaic System. This standard chronology is based upon three independent elucidations of three vital and imposing allegories, each giving the same result, found respectively in II. Chron. iv. 2-5 ; Rev. vii. 1-8, xxi. 9-17.

 But, where the Euphratic age is directly involved, the proportion may stand as 272:18,988::1,444,804 or 12022 : 100,863,008; or to the years from the beginning of the creation to the end of time as through the female line.

 There further follows, as 1035:1242::101,256,000:121,567,190; or the years from the beginning of the creation to the end of time, Pyramid measurement, as against the 121,683,000 of the standard chronology, Mosaic System, male line.

Also, as 1043:1251::101,256,000:121,448,950; as against the standard chronology, through the male, already cited.

     Now, from the implied proportion that something in Chamber A is to something in Chamber B as something in Cube C is to something in Cube D, there arises as 101,256,000:556,516::578: x; hence to 3, where x is an unknown quantity of the proportion as in A, and 578 is a value in Chamber B; also, as 101,256,000:578::578: x; hence to .003, where x again equals an unknown quantity of the proportion as in A, and 578 as a value in Chamber B. Wherefore the ratio between the terms 3 and 578 is 192.6, and the ratio between the terms .003 and 578 is 192,666.6.

     By the Mosaic System of Chronology the Four Ages of Man from the creation of the Euphratic race number 33,752 years, female line, and the years from the beginning of the creation to the end of time number 101,256,000. Wherefore there follows by proportion as 101,256,000:33,752::578: x; hence to .1926, Adhere x equals an unknown quantity in A. But the ratio between .1926 and 568 is 3000; consequently 33,752 x 3000 = 101,256,000, by which the relationship of multiples of 3 between scriptural chronology (see II. Chron. iv. 2-5 ; Rev. vii. 4-8, xxi. 9-21) and the chronology of the Great Pyramid becomes well marked, the Pyramid being the third part of the regular prism described about it.

     By Pyramid measure, however, the years of the Four Ages of Man from the creation of the Euphratic race, female line of chronology, are 35,540 less, say the 1965 Mosaic years of the era between the beginning of the Euphratic age and the creation of the Euphratic race, or 33,575 years; wherefore 33,575 X 3000 = 100,725,000, thus corresponding very closely with the 100,863,008 years of the Pyramid measurement already obtained. But the years of the Four Ages of Man, male line of chronology, Pyramid measurement, are 40,801; wherefore 40,801 X 3000 = 122,403,000, as against the 121,683,000 of the standard chronology, Mosaic System.

     From the general chronology as thus set forth the indication now follows that the years of each of the six creative days are hidden in the construction of the Great Pyramid; but the measurements at hand seem too limited or general to determine them, the proportions by one line of interpretation probably being concealed in the series of spaces above the King's Chamber as covering about 101,220,460 years, Pyramid measurement.

     In witness of this hypothesis the base of Cube C as 556,516 square feet may, in harmony with the floors of the sepulchral chambers as already set forth, represent 556,516 years, while the cubical contents of the sarcophagus in feet may become a unit of measure as identified with the cubical contents of the spaces above the King's Chamber. As, therefore, by the hypothesis a relationship exists between the spaces above the King's Chamber and the longevity of the creative days, so a proportion may stand, as the cubical contents of the sarcophagus: the cubical contents of any one space: :the years expressed by base of Cube C: the years or longevity of such space as a creative day (see Diagram 3).

     Now, Kenrick, as already quoted, gives the floors of these spaces as 38 feet long and 17 feet wide, with a general height of from 2.5 feet to 3.5 feet, while the topmost space is 8.5 feet in height at the centre. These measurements, however, seem too in-definite to embody them in the proportions as above indicated, in that considerable variation in the cubical contents of the spaces may follow, owing to the irregularity of their outlines. But the harmony between the chronology by the Mosaic System and that of the Great Pyramid having been established, the possible average heights of the spaces above the King's Chamber may be approximated from the longevity of the creative days by the Mosaic System; and, if approximated, then the hypothesis — viz., that the years of the six creative days are hidden in the series of spaces above the King's Chamber — will become well authenticated. Wherefore, from this point of view, there follows by proportion, —

     As 556,516:30,640,884::91.5:5037; where the first term of the proportion represents the base of Cube C as years or as the graveyard of years; where the second term represents the years of the first creative day by the Mosaic System; where the third term represents the cubical contents of the sarcophagus within the King's Chamber; and where the fourth term represents the cubical contents or the average height X base of the topmost space. The height of the sarcophagus is assumed by the writer to be 3 feet 9 inches; but the base or floor of each space, as given by Kenrick, is 38 X 17 = 646 square feet; wherefore 5037 / 646 = 7.79 feet as the average height of the topmost space against the 8.5 feet at the centre as given by Kenrick.

There follows, also, as 556,516:29,308,672::91.5:4818 = base X height of second space; wherefore 4818 / 646 = 7.4 feet as the average height of the second space against the 2.5 feet to 3.5 feet as indicated by Kenrick.

Also, as 556,516:7,993,274::91.5:1314 = base X height of third space; wherefore 1314 / 646 = 2.03 feet as the average height of the third space against the 2.5 feet to 3.5 feet as indicated by Kenrick.

Also, as 556,516:9,325,486::91.5:1533 = base X height of fourth space; wherefore 1533 / 646 = 2.2 feet as the average height of the fourth space against the 2.5 feet to 3.5 feet as indicated by Kenrick.

Also, as 556,516:13,322,l23::91.5:2190 = base X height of fifth space; wherefore 2190 / 646 = 3.3 feet as the average height of the fifth space against the 2.5 feet to 3.5 feet as indicated by Kenrick.

     Hence the heights of all the spaces, except it be that of the second, as derived from the Mosaic System, approximate those given by Kenrick; yet even the apparent discrepancy in the height of the second space may disappear by more definite measurements and by a closer scrutiny of its allegorical renderings. But as for the base X height that represents the sixth space, as identified with the King's Chamber, there follows, —

     As 556,516:10,629,841::91.5:1747.7; wherefore 1747.7 / 578 (the floor of the King's Chamber) = 3.02 feet as the unit of measure pertaining to the King's Chamber. As, therefore, the sarcophagus is the unit of measure used in these calculations, so the indication follows that the 3.02 feet = 36.24 inches approximate the average inside height of the sarcophagus as the unit of height required for the sixth day.

     Wherefore it follows, that by transposing the terms of the proportions as thus set forth, thereby eliminating the Mosaic factor, and with definite measurements of these spaces, it will be found, very probably, that the Pyramid contains within itself allegoric rays covering the years of each creative day in harmony with those determined by the Mosaic System, which doubtless is, or corresponds with, the ancient system of chronology revealed unto Moses by the Lord (see Ex. xxxiii. 17-23) when the Lord made all his goodness pass before him.

     Thus, by and through the Mosaic System of Chronology, the Great Pyramid, as one of God's witnesses (see Isa. xix. 18-20), gives up many of its mysteries, and hence that which pertained to past ages, and the history of which had passed out of remembrance, is again brought forward through the revelation accorded to Moses, "the servant of God."

     Inspection of the foregoing, however, will show that in these elucidations the astronomical bearings of the Great Pyramid are not touched upon, yet every angle doubtless subtends marvelous history pertaining to the heavenly hosts, for the Master-mind leaves himself many witnesses. It is to be hoped that the gifted author of "New Light from the Great Pyramid" (Albert Ross Parsons) will in the near future fulfil his intimation of a forthcoming work on mysteries connected with the solar system, — mysteries still claiming attention from the decipherer, and decipherings doubtless waited for by hosts probably undreamed of as yet by the intelligent mind.

 

The End

 

"Viewed from whatever standpoint we please, the Great Pyramid is certainly the most remarkable building in the world; but in the light of an investigation which has been in progress for the past thirty-two years, it acquires new interest to every Christian advanced in the study of God's Word; for it seems in a remarkable manner to teach, in harmony with all the prophets, an outline of the plan of God, past, present and future."
