Graham Hancock on Touring Ancient Egypt

If you're going to Egypt and can only take two books with you they should be '"The Travelers Key to Ancient Egypt" and "Serpent in the Sky: The High Wisdom of Ancient Egypt," both by my old friend John Anthony West. "Travelers Key" is by far the best guide book to the mysteries of ancient Egypt ever written. Although it's presently out of print you can get used copies through Amazon, and my understanding is that a new, revised and updated edition is planned very soon. It's thanks to John that we are now all aware that the Great Sphinx of Giza may date back to 10,000 BC or earlier (rather than to around 2,500 BC as mainstream archaeologists claim). The notion of an older Sphinx was originally John's insight, and it was he who brought in Professor Robert Schoch of Boston University who confirmed that this extraordinary monument was indeed subjected to thousands of years of heavy rainfall and therefore must be much older than 2,500 BC -- dating back to a time, around the end of the last Ice Age, when Egypt was last subject to such rains. The debate goes on, Egyptologists continue to wiggle and claim that the Sphinx is younger, but they will not prevail. The truth is great and mighty, as the ancient Egyptians said.

Graham Hancock on the Younger Dryas

The earth was hit by a comet around 12,800 years ago with globally cataclysmic effects that brought on an epoch of devastating cold, darkness and floods known by geologists as the Younger Dryas. For the past seven years academics have been involved in such an intense dispute about whether or not the comet impact actually occurred that the implications of what it might have meant for the story of civilisation have not yet been considered at all. But every attempt to refute the impact evidence has in turn been refuted and the case for the Younger Dryas comet is now so compelling that it is time to widen the debate.  [Emphasis mine.  Academics, largely due to their "peer review" process, are usually more intent on preserving their theories of what happened, Darwinian evolution of species being one of their foremost favourite ideas,  rather than exposing the truth.  Until this exercise in imposition of societal idiocy is removed, it will be an open question whether a college education is worth the time or the money!]

The epicentre of the impact was on the North American ice cap but other large fragments of the same object also hit the Northern European ice cap, and impact evidence has also been found as far afield as the Middle East (e.g. see point number 22 on the diagram here:

Though not yet confirmed, it is possible that some fragments may have hit Egypt and this raises an intriguing speculation concerning the ancient Egyptian cult of the Benben stone. As long ago as 1989 my friend and colleague Robert Bauval proposed in the academic journal "Discussions in Egyptology" that the original Benben stone might have been an oriented iron meteorite. You can read his article here: http://robertbauval.co.uk/articles/articles/DE14.html
I suggest it is worth re-opening this discussion to consider whether the mysterious object worshipped in the Mansion of the Phoenix in Heliopolis [Beth-Shemesh] might in fact have been a fragment of the Younger Dryas comet that caused the global cataclysm of 12,800 years ago. Like the Phoenix, comets are objects that return again and again to our skies and it is conceivable that some fragments of the Younger Dryas comet remain in orbit and might even threaten us today. 
Such speculations add new light to the strange correlation of sky and ground (see attached graphic) that memorialises the sky of 12,800 years ago in the giant monuments of Egypt's Giza plateau where the priesthood of Heliopolis practised their star religion. I propose that this religion -- the title of the High Priest of Heliopolis was "Chief of the Astronomers" -- had its origins in a lost civilisation destroyed during the Younger Dryas cataclysm, and that survivors of that civilisation settled in Egypt and created a message to the future written in the language of astronomy and monumental architecture that was designed to draw attention to the exact epoch of the comet impact. I will be exploring these ideas further in "Magicians of the Gods" the sequel I am now writing to "Fingerprints of the Gods".

Additional notes: The ancient Egyptians called the Milky Way the "Winding Waterway". The constellation of Orion was seen as the celestial image of the god Osiris, said to have brought the gifts of civilisation to Egypt in the remote past in the epoch called Zep Tepi, "the First Time".

Additional note (2) The graphic indicates the sky over Giza as it would looked early in the precessional “Age of Leo” (the period of roughly 2,160 years -- between approximately 12,970 years ago and 10,810 years ago) when the constellation of Leo “housed” the sun on the Spring Equinox. Because of the phenomenon known as the precession of the equinoxes, each of the 12 zodiacal constellations takes it’s turn to house the sun during the course of “Great Year” which lasts a total of 12 X 2,160 years, i.e. 25,920 years. The alignment indicated in the graphic therefore only recurs every 25,920 years.

Planet Mu’s Lost Civilizations - Anne Tittensor

Anne Tittensor had this to say:

The conclusion I have come to on the existence of MU, is as follows. MU was not an island or a group of islands. MU was planet Earth, swimming in the sea we call the Universe in the deep and distant past when MU (Earth) was smaller, as Churchward says, “before the mountains rose”. A past that we have forgotten, a past that has been deliberately taken from us, a past that, if proven would destroy all educational, religious and political practises and systems in this, our present civilisation. It is therefore understandable why our past has been hidden from the populous – just imagine if the masses* were faced with the truth that we, the awakened are mistily aware of? Think about it – really think about it. We are not the first technically advanced civilisation to inhabit this planet, in fact our technical and scientific advancements are but a scratch on the surface of what a previous civilisation achieved.

We have survived catastrophe after catastrophe, some natural and some man-made as stated within the research. Darwin had a theory that is still pumped through the education system even to this day, but his “theory” is only tentatively viable for this particular layer in time and does not take into consideration the NOW quantum reality. Here we have a prime example of the expression “everything we have been told is lies” – no matter what advancements this civilisation happens to stumble across, Darwin will still be taught in schools. Why? Because anything else would upset the apple cart and all the anthropologists and their peers would have to go find a job in Tescos. Can you see that happening?

Think about the implications. The proof is out there – The global connective unexplained stonework, the as yet unknown race of people as proven by the skulls, the out of place artefacts and anomalies that are becoming more and more evident today, the fact that pre-ice age pyramids are showing up globally, the fact that we now have an Egyptian tomb waiting to be excavated in Australia! (yes, you read that right).  The researchers that stray from the mainstream will force the information to the surface, all the while fighting through the misinformation machine, the bullshit and the Nay Sayers, it will prevail – hopefully.

* I was asked to admonish Anne that the use of the phrase "the masses" is equivalent to saying "the mob" and would better be termed "the people" instead. It would do the world a lot of good to drop "the masses" from our usual conversation as we do not seek superiority above anyone.

Master Classes on early piano sonatas of Beethoven

[pic of young Beethoven from actual portrait 
 you can see a little wild rascal in his expression]

Piano Lessons Proposal : Sept 28, 2014

Conservatory Style Master Classes
focusing on some early piano sonatas of Beethoven
particularly #1, #3, #6, #8, #9, #10, #11, #12, #13, #14 and #15.
For the next few months, October through at least January, pianist David Burton, will be based in Sequim, Washington, not far from Port Angeles or Victoria, BC and within reach of the rest of Northwest Washington. Long an exponent of raising the level of amateur pianism, Burton would like to be able to conduct a series of master classes for no more than six students at a location with a better than average piano in reasonably good tune and preparation for serious playing. He would like to find such a location and would like to be able to record all these events for future posting at his website (dpbmss041010.blogspot.com): audio only. Links from the Piano World piano forum, etc. would announce their release. After that, these same podcasts could be posted anywhere freely on line. Burton would like to use these classes as a means to defray some of his travelling expenses for a visit that will include Washington and Northern California.  
Each session would focus on one sonata. Prospective students would be intermediate to advanced,, have some acquaintance with the music in question, would bring their own scores, etc. Each session could run up to 2 hours, longer with more people, which is why the number of students is to be limited. Some asked whether tickets would be sold to such an event, so people could come in and sit and listen, expecting the location might be some auditorium or church. Burton does not yet know what kind of location this mission of his would require. The location may even turn out to be someone's private home. It will be up to the consensus, exactly when they would most likely be able to attend such an event and arrangements, locations, etc. will be distributed via e-mail.  
After January, 2015, Burton's plans are less certain. He expects to travel to Northern California and will be based near Santa Cruz. Offers for classes and appearances will be considered. His repertoire at the moment focuses on music by Franz Schubert and Beethoven. He may supplement these with very simple arrangements of 19th century songs, now almost extinct in memory, or music of his own composition. He wants people to be able to hear how even a simple piece of piano music can be played to great advantage. Two complete concert programs are under preparation. These will feature two sonatas of Franz Schubert, a sonata of Beethoven and the other mentioned pieces.  
The interested should contact David Burton right away at dpbmss@aol.com subject music proposal. Let him know which of the above mentioned Beethoven sonatas is of most interest, etc. He also wants to know the best times for scheduling these events.
