February 9, 2017 — As winter plunges us into short days and colder temperatures, it becomes very tempting to cuddle up under a blanket, turn on the television and veg out.
But why not watch something that is actually interesting (even if it us educational)?
The Pyramid Code, an intensely researched exploration of Egypt’s great structures, examines the existence, construction and reason for these world treasures — the only one of the seven wonders of the ancient world (The Great Pyramid of Giza, the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, the Statue of Zeus at Olympia, Temple of Artemis at Ephesus, the Mausoleum at Halicarnassus, the Colossus of Rhodes, the Lighthouse of Alexandria) still in existence.
Numerous scholars, Egyptologists, archaeologists, cosmologists, geologists, astrophysicists and geologists traveled to Egypt and 51 other countries to attempt to unravel the secrets and mysteries of the Pyramids. In all, 25 trips were undertaken to gather information and local lore. Sites around the world were explored and investigated.
New theories were considered, taking into account new information and new methods of gathering it.
The Pyramid Code examines:
Episode 1, The Band of Peace: This episode attempts to explain the original purpose of the Pyramids, raising doubts about the interpretation that traditional Egyptology has put forth. By examining other pyramid sites, experts try to piece together information about the ancients’ knowledge of the cosmos, their technological advancement and their obvious understanding of science.
Episode 2, High Level Technology: As research indicated that the Pyramids may have served purposes other than just serving as tombs, scientist examined the locations of pyramids around the world, their locations with connection to waterflow and their structure.
Episode 3, Sacred Cosmology: Researchers decipher the symbolism of Egyptian art, and interpret the symbols with reference to their connection to cosmology. Comparing the Great Pyramid to other similar structures around the globe, scientists look into the Dogon culture of Mali, in Western Africa, and the Nabta Playa archaeological sites of Western Egypt. They also took into account the cycles of the Nile River and the cycles of the Sun and stars.
Episode 4, The Empowered Human: Researchers examine the human element in the construction of the Pyramids and posit that the builders may have been part of an ancient Golden Age which spawned greater knowledge, heightened sensibilities and advances abilities — greater than those people have today. Part of this mind-set was a consideration of the “sacred feminine” which balanced the “sacred masculine.”
Episode 5, A New Chronology: The culmination of the research put forth by the contributing scientists resulted in the belief that the dates generally supplied for the creation of the Pyramids by traditional Egyptology are not correct.
So grab a warm drink, put your feet up and relax with a series that will fascinate and intrigue — and not just kill time.
