Ancient Egypt, cultural heritage of Atlantis?


e all know about ancient Egypt with their mummies, pharaohs and pyramids. Their cultural advance, where did it came from? Their culture, would it not be a cultural legacy of Atlantis? Both Plato, in his dialogues of Timaeus and Critias, and Cayce in his readings, had reported that the Atlantean population had contact with Egyptian culture. They even mentioned that the Atlanteans fleeing their continent, had joined among others Egypt, taking with them their culture and a large number of documents. That's what the Egyptian priests confirmed 9'000 years later to Solon. They had confirmed to Solon that they were having papyrus on what they had said. These documents exist certainly no more today, as the library of Alexandria was destroyed twice. It may well be that contact with the Atlantean culture explains the miracle of the Egyptian culture, which remains an enigma to this day. The Egyptians had a considerable technological, scientific and medical knowledge. This contact with the culture of Atlantis could also explain the sociological puzzle, the pyramids and megaliths, were they part of the Atlantean legacy? Has Egypt had, without really tending to do so, taken on her the mission to extend the tradition of Atlantis up to this day? We find, in effect, traces of these traditions among the ancient Greeks and, even when you disagree on this, among the Templars, alchemists, Masons and even the Rose-cross.

We must not forget the strange cultural similarities of certain populations. Moreover, it are precisely these people among which we find these strange similarities, where Atlanteans fled during the destruction of their island. We also have pyramids among the Mexicans. There was also a mummy, or even mummies, among North American Indians, which has an age of at least nine to ten thousand years. These Indians had, like the ancient Egyptians, a mania of inducing their bodies and their graves with red ocher. It's because this mania that we gave the North American Indians the nickname “Red Skins”. We must not forget the Guanches of the Canary Islands, the Basques and the Berbers having traditions and languages totally alien to their cultural and geological environment. It's highly probable that these populations would be a cultural memory of Atlantis, as were the Egyptians. The places where these people live, is according to Plato and Cayce there where once the Atlantean people had fled.

The archaeologist and man of contemporary art “Sean Suchy” had put, in his book “L'Archéologie d'avant l'histoire (The Archeology prior to history)” (Éditions Laffont), the Egyptian constructions in a global context.

He writes:

« ...How machining blocks of several hundred tons comparable to those of trilithon of Balbeck, or huge masses of granite of the sepulchral chamber of Giza is a performance inaccessible to the most sophisticated technology of our civilization... »

Then he continues:

« ...So the adjustment of the blocks which is made with perfection to the heaviest of them as the lightest, so it's not possible, following the example commonly referred to slide a razor blade between the elements of columns of the Parthenon, blocks of Giza, or the Inca walls, this adjustment would not successfully be achieved by means of our technology... »

Scientists of today believe, based on repeated measurements and calculations on the spot, that builders of the pyramids of Egypt could never have build the pyramids without technology superior to ours. The reason they advance is very simple the one where we say; “We don't know how to do so and therefore it's impossible that someone else knew, or would have known.” But is it reasonable to think so? Shouldn't we, perhaps, put ourselves in place of an ordinary worker and ask how he would have done it. It's in fact that what has been achieved by some; an archaeologist, practicing experimental archeology, succeeded to successfully demonstrate that one could build a wall, as the Incas did, in using simple terms. It's a television crew filming in Egypt who did the same kind of experience which was presented on “Le Cinq” (French cultural channel) and TLC. They had actually asked a dozen illiterate Egyptian workers to put a block of granite weighing several tons on a march of a pyramid. They expected to see techniques as we know them, with a ramp, ropes and so on. But the workers themselves didn't need this all and had, by means with a disconcerting simplicity, raised the block weighing several tons in a space of no more then forty minutes. We can therefore conclude that these workers had, in despite the fact that they were illiterate, yet in them the knowledge of the Atlanteans, which we definitely have not, or no more. These same workers also knew how to carve a block out of a wall; it was pretty simple, if you knew how to do so! We can see that some people have indeed kept a part of culture and knowledge of Atlantis, even if this know-how has been diluted over time. Perhaps we should conclude that if certain things are not possible with our technology, that this is not a matter of impossibility, but that it are our technological capabilities that are not adapted as required.

Both Plato and Cayce have said that some Atlanteans had managed to flee to different countries, including ancient Egypt. It's an Arab historian of the ninth century, who spoke of hidden chambers in the pyramids. He is pretending that a pyramid of Egypt has been built three centuries before the flood. The date of construction indicated by the historian brings us, considering that they once believed that the flood took place about twenty-five centuries before Christ, to the time when the great pyramids of Giza were built. The date of construction matches quite well with what have left us Egypt in hieroglyphics, which were indecipherable in the ninth century. The Arab historian relates that the pyramid contained vaults filled with talismans, strange objects, instruments of iron and weapons that will not rust, models of vessels in clay, glass that can bend without breaking...! It's clear that these objects had been placed there by a previous civilization that has not only known stainless steel, but also a material that resembles the plastic of today.

Apart from citations of the Arab historian of the ninth century, there is also chronic literate from Al Massoudi of the tenth century. He also mentions in his chronicles the existence of underground chambers located on or near the Great Pyramids, from which he said what was there:

« ...A treasure that no human imagination can evaluate or even conceive... »

« ...An old legend tells that it was brought in Egypt long ago by our ancestors who were of a higher level and lived on the other side of the sea... »

« ...A treasure that contains the rarest and most precious stones... »

« ...The wonders of the high science inherited from our ancestors, prodigious instruments that increase the dimensions and powers of man, which enable him to measure time, forecast the future, flying in the air, move in water as easily as on Earth... »

What is interesting is that Cayce also had alluded to the fact that Atlantis had concealed documents, scrolls and other sacred literature in a place he called “Hall Of Records”, not to be confused with a place where we keep and sell musical records and DVD or a registration hall of an airport. The term “Hall Of Records” is rather a “Archives Room” and is to be seen as such. According to Cayce, the “Hall of Records” would not be discovered yet, because the Atlanteans appear to have taken care to hide their treasures, so that it becomes unlikely that their papers be desecrated by those who would not be able to understand their importance. These assertions of Cayce pushed some to say that the great pyramid of Giza was not built to two thousand five hundred years before Christ, but that it dated from 10'500 to 10'400 years before Christ. Cayce's assertions are reason for some to believe that the pyramid is much older than two thousand five hundred years before Christ. But another reason which leads some to believe that, could be that the pyramid contains a small tunnel that points to a place where Cirrus was 10'500 years before Christ. But it may be necessary to separate two things, the date of construction and the date to which this small tunnel points. The Egyptians had perhaps a reason of the pointing there, just as they had done with the famous zodiac of Denderah, which includes a sign, a lion in a boat, and also indicates a date of about a thousand years later, ie 9792 years before Christ.

The place that the Atlanteans had finally chosen for their “Hall of Records”, which was used as a storage place for their esoteric, religious, scientific knowledge and their laws, was once the very fertile plateau of Giza. This plateau was even known at the time of Atlantis to have been able to withstand multiple deluges, floods and earthquakes. They also believed that there was approximately the mathematical center of all continents and land and that this “Hall of Records” would be less disturbed by future earthquakes and floods. This “Hall of Records” was locked in his own pyramid, which was to remain hidden for thousands of years. This pyramid is to be found between the Sphinx and Great Pyramid. From the right paw of the Sphinx, we should find an entry that would give access to this “Hall of Records.” This access should be discovered only then when mankind would have reached a high enough spiritual level, at the beginning of the fifth era.

If there was a cultural legacy of Atlantis in Egypt, it would be in the form of religion that it once had. Although we have very little information about the religions of Atlantis, we can get an image by reading that what Plato and Cayce have left us. We should not consider the writings of Plato and the Cayce readings as contradictory but as complementary. Plato's writings are themselves a rather comprehensive description, without going into details of individual people. While all the readings of Cayce are primarily a mosaic of life experiences of people taken individually making an overview difficult.

We can, by putting the two next to each other, get us a better idea of life on this country that was once Atlantis. The first impression that this information gives us is that Atlantis seems to have had just as ancient Egypt, two religions. But yes, the ancient Egyptians did have two religions, a polytheistic religion, that of the pharaohs and the ruling classes, then a monotheistic religion practiced by the lower classes of the Egyptian society, which were mainly the Hebrews. Atlantis had apparently experienced a similar situation, where the polytheistic religion was called “Sons of Belial” and were forming the core of the ruling classes and those who held power, then the class of workers and peasants belonged rather to the “Children of the Law of One.” Cayce also says in his reading 1007-3, that the “Children of the Law of One” would be nothing other than the ancestors of the Jewish population. The “Sons of Belial”, they, used their religious and spiritual doctrine especially for their own material benefit, as this was the case at the time of the pharaohs. Another similarity is the treatment of lower classes, because the Atlantean society was as ancient Egypt, divided into classes. The most disadvantaged classes, workers and peasants, were not even treated as humans, we treated them as “things”, a class of untouchables, as in India today. Although the Egyptians did not know slaves until the invasion of their country by Alexander the Great, the fate of their lower classes wasn't much better. It's just if not treated like animals. The “Children of the Law of One” (the ancestors of the Jewish people) did not know the best treatment during their existence on Atlantis, where they were called “things”, which leaves a bad omen of the treatment which was reserved for them. The worst was reserved for children from mixed marriages. Rejected by both camps, these children were really treated like animals. We don't have up to day written evidence of that this happened in the same way in ancient Egypt, but it could be expected to be so.

Another similarity that ancient Egypt shares with Latin America is that religions have as their supreme god the Sun. The “Children of the Law of One” worshiped at the time also the Sun, except that the “Children of the Law of One” did not know this whole range of sub-gods, assistant gods, half gods and so on. This notion of the Sun god appears to have disappeared during their stay in Egypt, to be replaced by the term “God” we know so far. We find both in the Cayce readings, as in the old Egyptian documents, the names of a Sun god, whose name most often cited was the name “Ra” or “Ra-Ta”, but also “Re”, although the Egyptians called him usually “Aton”.
