FOREWORD

The Great Pyramid of Gizeh is calling forth many books at the present time, but it seems to the writer that the author of this volume has achieved an enviable success.

Much that is written concerning this great stone monument on the burning sands of the Egyptian desert, is lessened in value by being too fancif ul or by being burdened with some private interpreta ... tion as to alleged prophetic features.

Dr. lCpjght has done wide reading and studYt and brings to this somewhat complicated and difficult subj ect, a f acuIty of clear thinking and expression which stands him in good stead. Also, he is careful to avoid the mistakes of those who have tried to prove too much from the Pyramid,

In Part Two, he states the sane and conserva rive "plan" by which he has been guided;

"It is not. our purpose to f oree anything. We ..mall endea Vl)!' to avoid conclusions which are manifestiy illogical. We shall not be dogmatic. We shall set no dates. All in the war Id we propO$e to do is to subject the Great Pyramid to geographical, mathematical, aszronom ical, JUs.. toric and prophetic tests, and sea what it has to .eay for itself.. If, by this admittedly acientmc

The M1stery and ProphecJ of the Great P)lramid

method, we should arrive, at condUS10Dl1 which. some of our readers cannot accept, we beg to assure them. that we :stand f:agerly ready to renounce our wrung conclusions the moment the right onea mall be given us."

No one can reasonably take exception to such

an attitude. .

The unreasonable approach to a subject like the Pyramid is surely one of bias in either direction, One should not accept all or even part of the wonderful things which have been extravagantly claimed for itt nor, on the other hand, should one be unwilling to believe, strange as it rna y a ppear ~ that here per haps God, the Creator of the universe, rna. y have done a startling and unexpected thing, in superintending the construction of an astonishing pile of granite,. which may possibly enshrine in its exterior and: its interior, many historical facts, scientific discoveries, and prophetic warnings. Why should it be thought impossible or moon' ceivable for God to do this? "In an things" He must have "the preeminence. n

A potent objection on the part of many sincere believers in the all-sufficient revelation of the Biblical record, is that this study is going beyond "tha t which is written, '! t But that again is simply

a matter of interpretation. Sure1 Y t it cannot be

The M ys tery and Prophecy of the Great Pyramid cannot be denied and are substantiated by most eminent scientists,

Certainly, here the unbeliever can find no comfort or support for his infidelity and a theism .. This may not be ..

The Mystery and P-rophec, of the Oreat Pyramid C"a1~ astronom leal, historic and prophetic tests, and see whether or not j t substanti ates these claims+

Against the massive masonry of the Great Pyra .. mid the storms of forty centuries have hurled themselves in vain. Empires have risen, flourished and decayed. Religious systems have come and gone. Civilizations ha ve developed and disappeared, but through more than four thousand years of changing human history the Great Pyra ... mid has stood amid the shifting sands, pointio g with solemn maj esty in silence up to God.

The labor of building it was enormous. Hero .. dotus informs us that 100,000 men were employed without cessation for twenty years. It contains some 2~ 3 00,000 blocks of stone, each weighing on an average two and a half tons. Much of the stone was quarried on the opposi te. side of the N ile, and ten years were required to build a causeway over which to move it. A canal was dug from the river to the foot of the plateau upon which the Pyramid stands 60 that stones could be deli vered direct to the builders. Some of these StotlCs wert thirry fret

long, five feet high, and four feet wide. Is it any

wonder it took so long to cover thirteen acres of bed-rock with more than two hundred courses of huge blocks that reach from the basement sheet to the crystal apex at the top? Can you visualize the

trhe Mystery and Prophecy of the Great Pyramid busy scene-the inclined planes) the great cranes, the swarming workmen, the endless iSUp ply of huge bloc ks being hoisted or rolled or pried into place, as slowly through the long, hot days and starlit, lDoon .. brightened and torch .. illumined I nights the gigantic pile grew until it topped the trees, climbed above the temples and soaring upward, d warted the distant rcoentains, dominated the landscape and compelled mankind to acknowledge it as one of the seven wonders of the world?

Quoting Seiss, "The Great Pyramid presents to every beholder the geometric em blem of the Divine Trinity. Creation is the reflection of God Himself, and the Pyramid as a syrn bol of the creation gives i mpressive token of His m ysterious Tri uni ty. ~~ As Sha w has said, 10 'Deity is typified by the outward form of that pile, and that form is a triangle whether viewed on either side or from either

comer ~ It likewise proclaims the architect of the

world to be the governor and upholder of the world. The: measures and motions of the planets which this Pyramid symbolizes aU show that the universe does not hold G od, but that He holds the universe, and that continents. and seas, suns and systems pass with unfaltering steadiness from age to age under His guiding hand. 11

As one stands beholding its long shadow darken the fields of Gizeh when the day declines, its over .. whelming vastness" rushes upon the mind--one feels oppressed and staggers beneath a load to think that such a mountain was piled by the handiwork of man. No words are adequate to describe it. One must see jt with his own eyes to appreciate the sublime, overmastering majesty of this titanic monument of age .. defying stone.

Nor could Ef Mamoun quiet the outbreaking indignation toward him and his courtiers except by one of those saintly frauds in which Moham ... medanism is so f acile, He comm anded those discon .. tents to go dig at the spot which he indicated, where they soon came upon a sum of gold~ exactly eq 031 to the wages claimed for their work, which gold he had himself secretly deposited at the place.

T he Mystery and Prophecy of the Great ~;rramid

When .i t was found ~ he could not repress his astonishment that those mighty kings before the flood were so full of inspi ration as to be able to count so truly what it would cost in Arab labor to break open their pyramid!

But the great, rn yster ious structure was now open~ Henceforward anyone with interest and courage enough to a ttem pt i ~ might enter" ex" amine .. study .. and find out what he could.

For centuries the Arabians 'Went in and out at will, but a part f rom the mere fact of the forcible entry by Al Mamoun little is known about the Pyramid. We must therefore depend upon the explorations and accounts of Europeans who have viei red, measured and photographed the pyramid from ti me to time. One of the first and greatest of these travelers was Sir John Man deville, who spent thirty ... three years in wandering through the East, visiting Egypt and the pyramids about A. D ~ 135 o. He lei t US a. theory concerning them ~ but confessed he WM afraid to enter them 'because the:y were re ported to be full of serpen ts, Mr. John Greaves, professor of astronomy in the U ill versity of OX" ford, visited the pyramid at his a wn expense in the spring of 1637 and published his Pyramidographia in 1646. He was soon fallowed by English, French) Dutch, Germ an and I talian explorers.

The Mystery dfld Prophecy of the Great Pyramid built. He also found some of the original casing stones still in their original placee, as well as portions of a splendid pavement which once sur" rounded the edifice. In addi tion t he fully confirmed what bad been ascertained before and brought the Great Pyramid within the sphere of modem scientific investigation. Through him Sir John Herschel espoused the belief that the pyramid Jlos .. sessed a. truly astronomical character, and that its narrow tubic en trance pointed to some pole star from which the date of the building might be determined. At Vyse'!ls suggesnon, Sir John made the necessary calculation and found the- pointing to indicate the same date on whicb other and inde .. pendent data had indicated to be the period of the erection of the great structure. Taking what had thus been discovered, John Taylor, one of the. publishers of the "London Magazjn~ I, undertook to solve the problem of the origin and purpose of the Great Pyramid. In 18" 9 he oublished a. small book in w hich he gave it as his opi nion that the real builders of the pyramid wer e not Egyptians~ but men who by the special commission and aid of the Creator superintended the erection of this great edifice as a witness of inspiration over against the doubt and corruption of a constantly degenerat .. ing world. This book of Taylor <t B fell into the hands

Vhe M)'srery and Prophecy of the Great Pyramid of Professor C. Piazzi Smyth, who, after making a thorough investigation, publish ed (in 1864) his splendid book, ~ 'Our Inheritance in the Great Pyram id. " In 186 5' Professor Smyth and his wife went to Egypt, where they lived in an old tomb from January to April, spending the intervening time in remeasuring and testing by the best scien .. tific appliances available what others had reported about the. Great Pyramid. The result of this self .. denying labor was given to the public in 1867 in tb ree brilliant velum es entitled, ~ ~ Life and Wark at the Great Pyramid, t~ with a sequel the year fallow .. ing on the "Antiquity of Intellectual Man."

The result of all this study and investigation has been the growing belief that the Great Pyramid was erected under the special guidance of God ~ that it is In fact a. Bible in stone, A young Scotchman, Robert Menzi es, was the first to point out how perfect! y the Grand Gallery symbolizes the Spin tual life, the well shaft the atonernen t, and the descending passage the path rna t leads down to the darkness and destruction of perdition, which the chaotic subterranean chamber so vivid! y suggests. The scientific symbolism of the Great Pyramid is

just as startling as the religious. .,....

Coodsir in his volume on ethnic inspiration has well said, "The scientific symbolism of that world's [ lO]

wonder now stands nearly discloaed to view, restor ing on j15 own independent basis of proof, which is not only vouched for but defended by advocates un deni ably competent to their work, and as yet occupying inexpungably their ground."

Those w ho have attacked the religio-scientilic theory of the Great Pyramid by thei r failure to establish a scientific. basis for their objections have in reality added their voices jn testimony to the truth of this theory . Every attack upon it has ended in such signal f allure that the critics have rather served to confirm than to destroy.

Some have objected to the use of the Great Pyramid as an argument for the truth of the Scriptures because C.. T. Ruesell was an ardent believer in the pyramid prophecy. A moment's consideration will convince anyone of the inadequacy of such an objection. Others obj ect because Jesus never mentioned the Great Pyramid. To this w. Merton Snow in the March) 1928~ "Messiah "s Advocate~' makes the following a pt reply ~ "Neither did Jesus mention Nebuchadnezzar's im age, but shall we throw it away with its message because He did not? (And is it to be supposed that Jesus told us all He knew?) Jesus did affirm l how .. ever, His belief in both Daniel and Isaiah by quoting from them, and Isaiah it IS who says, 'In

Still others attribute to "accident" the remark .. able agreement of pyramid measurements wi th historical events. In answer to this I Mr. Snow declares that the word 4.~ accident t~ should not be

used with respect to tying up the cia tes of history with the passage measurements of the pyramid, because there is either in telligent design to reveal truth here, or intelligent purpose to perpetuate a monstrous hoax upon mankind.

CHAPTER III.

THE BUILDERS

The Great Pyramid is attrihuted to Cheeps, and the second to his brother Chephren, w he succeeded him. Herodotus tens us that, according to the Egyptian priests, Cheops was Uoarrogant toward the gods, ''I He closed the temples, interdicted the customary worship, cast out the images to be defiled on the highways, and compelled even the priests to labor in the q uarries. Moreover t HeID'" dotus tells us that on account of Cheeps and his brother ~ S opposition to the worsbip of idols, the Egyptians 00 detest the memory of these 000 kings that they do not much like even to mention their names. Hence they commonly call the pyramids after Phili tion, a shepherd who at that time fed his fiock~ about the place _ ( ~~G teat Pyramid, n PrOCt

tor, p~ SO.) ..

Manetbo, an Egyptian priest and scribe, is quoted by Josephus and others as saying, t.·We had formerly a king in whose time it c arne to pass, there came up from the East in a strange manner men of an ignoble race who had the confidence to invade

{ !l]

The Mystery and Prophecy of the Great Pyramid our country and easily subdued it by their power without a battle, and when they had our rulers in their hands they demolished the temples of the gods.' (Cory ~ s Fragments, p. 257.)

lvlanetho further states that these ~'.Arabians " left Egypt in large numbers, but instead of going to Arabia they went up to that country now ca.l1ed Judea and there built a city and named it J erusa .. lem L From this and certa i n passages in the Bihle-particularly the Book of J ob---it is thought that the shepherd to whose influence the Egyptians attribute the Great Pyramid may have been Job+

Wilford in his uAsiatic Researches, U volume three, page 22 'j ~ gives an extract from the Hindu records, which seems to sustain this tradition. The extract says that "One TaIDCYV atsa, a child of prayer ~ wise and devout, prayed for certain suecesses, and that God granted his request, and that he came to Egypt with a chosen company, entered it without any declaration of war and began to administer justice among the people to give them a specimen of a good king. t~ This T amo-va tsa is represented as a king of the power! ul people called the Pall ~ shepherds.

The Mystery and Prophecy of the Great Pyramid doings and 8UCc.e.%eS depicted with so much beauty in chapter 29 grandly harmonizes with Manetho' s story of the strange power of the Arabians over the Egyptian rulers! obtained 'without a battle. ~ He held Jdolatry to be a crime punishable by the authorities. ( Cha pter 31: 2&28.) He also looked forward to the coming of the 'Redeemer' and expressed his firm belief in physical resurrection ~ (Job 19:23 ... 27-I-Oh that my words were now written!. ob that they were printed in a book! That they were graven with an iron ~ and lead in the rock forever! For I know that my redeemer li veth, and that he .shall stand at the latter day upon the earth: And though after my skin worms destroy this bod s. yet in my flesh shan I see God: Whom I shall see for myself ~ and mine eyes shall behold, and not another ~ though my reins be consumed "Within me.)

"The design of Moses after he had completed the narrative of the dispersion of the third and fourth generations of the descendants of Noah and thus outlined the ancestry of the chief nations to the world undoubtedly was to con einue the line of Shem to that of Abraham only, because it was through Abraham that the Messiah was to come. But he makes one grea.t exception to this rule when he names the family of Joktan and terminates the

According to Herodotus the [oktanites formed the second great colony to settle in Arab~ the Cushites being first, and Ishmaeli tes third. Baldwin in his "Prehistoric Nations' says that "ages farther back than our histories, Arabia was the seat of a great and inll u entia 1 civilization, ~ . + It is apparent that no other race did so Ttl uch to develop and spread civilization. " From these people came the Phoenicians; and Rawlinson, Bunsen, and Watkins maintain that the Phoenicians w-ere Shemites and hence of joktanite lineage . Rawlinson also remarks tha t these people possessed "a wonderful capacity for affecting the spiri tual conditions of our species by proj ecting into the fermenting mass of human thought new and strange ideas, especially those of the most abstract kind. Shemitic races have in .. il uenced fat more than any others the history of the world's mental processe9~ and the principal intellectual rev 01 utions which have taken place are traceable in the main to them. 'tt_ [Herodotus, p~ 539.)

That the Phoenicians were Shemitic and not Hamitic is proved by their language, which from

No matter ~ then, whether Phili tis, Melchisedec ( as some think) or Job were the real builders of the Pyramid.

CHAPTER N.

TIlE MYSTERY OF lTS PURPOSE

Was the Great Pyramid intended for a tomb or a tern pIe? -for astrological purposes, or as a religio-scientific monument? let us see. The theory that the Great Pyramid was in tended for a tomb is wholly borrowed from the other pyramids, which were used as tombs. In all the examinations to w bleb it has been subjected, w hether in ancient

- or modem times, and in all historical fragments concerning i~ there is nothing to bear out the idea that jt was intended as a royal sepulchre.

Davison sa ys, "The Great Pyramid enshrines an ex position of the secrets of the universe. This exposition is presented in the precise terms, and by the geometrical or graphical methods of modem exact science. Egypto1ogistsl however, declare that the Great Pyramid 1s a tomb, and ilia ~ being a tomb, it bas no other purpose to serve. Evidence not relating to the Tornbic Theory finds no place in their 'showcase.' The structural engineering evidence disproves this contention by showing that the beginning of the Ascendin g Passage leading to

[41 J 1-

The Mystery and Prophecy oj the Great P)'ramid the supposed sepulchral upper chambers was tightly sealed before th e Ascend ing Passages an d Upper Chambers were built. The structural engi ... nee-ring evidence also proves that the Great Pyra .. mid was built on scientific principles and that it had a scientific purpose to serve. The whole problem of the Pyramid is therefore primarily an engi neeri ng problem. 'I,

Diodorus says positi vely that "Cheeps was not buried here, but .in an obscure and unknown place." That secrecy in regard to burial was traditional in Cbeops' family would seem to be proved by the following, which was published in the newspapers late in 1926: "Buried under tons of rock at the bottom of a ninety ... foot shaf4 Dr. Reisner of Harvard finds the hidden sepulchre of the beloved mother of the Egyptian monarch who built the Great Pyramid. The old Egyptians~ believing in the immortality of the soul, 1a vished all their resources and skill in prepari ng a fitting eternal home for their dead. Thus it .is remar kable to find the tomb of the illustrious Queen Here .. petheres, so carefully concealed and marked by no outward monument. "

For six hundred years after Al Mamoun broke into this pyramid the Arab writers who tell of the feat say not a word of any human remains or

were laid to complete the Pyrami d, how shall we account for the existence of the well, and what shall we do with the statement that in his old age, long after the completion of the pyramid, Cheeps reverted to the idolatry w hich he 50 nearly de-strayed during the earlier years of his long reign,

Moreover) the great coffer in the King's Chamber has channels for a lid, but At Mamoun found no cover nor fragment of one when he: entered the pyramid in 820 1\.

It is therefore safe to conclude that this gigantic mass of masonry lN3.S never intended for burial purposes.

Furthermore, vihen we find in this edifice throughout a gr-eat system of inter ... rela ted numbers, measures, weights, angles, temperatures, degrees, geometric problems, cosmic references, and general geodesy which modern science Las l10W read arnl verified from it) reason and truth demand of the teachers of mankind to cease writing ehat, "No other object presented itself to the builder of the Great Pyramid than the preparation of his O'W11 tomb."

The M ys tcry. and Prophecy of the- Great Pyramid

Unlike the other pyramids which were used as tombs, the Great Pyramid's subterranean chambers were never finished, and there seems no adequate reason why the upward ascending passage leading to the King"s Chamber, where the advocates of the tomb theory jnsist Cheeps must have been buried, should have been suddenly expanded into a. grand gallery seven tim es its height and then twice again constricted to a passage 1e3S than four feet high before the burial chamber is reached. And when we enter it and find the coffer of the utmost plebian plainness quite disproportioned for such a p urpose, devoid of all ornarnenc, inscription, or sepulchral insignia7 Js there not room for ra tiona! doubt that it was ever meant or used for a burial casket? And when we perceive in this coH ex a most accurately shaped standard of measures and proportions, its sides and bottom cubically iden tical with its internal space ~ the length of its two sides to its height as a circle to Jts diameter; its exterior

volume just twice the dinlUlsions of its bottom, and its whole measure a definite proportion of the chamber in which i t was put when the edifice was built-e-we may well wonder what all such uaparalleled scientific elaborations have to do with a mere tomb.

The Mystery and Prophecy of the Great Pyramid

French metric system, said, ~ 'This system came out of the bottomless pit. At that time and in the place w hence this system sprang it was hell on earth, The people defied the God who made them. They worshipped the goddess of reason. Can the chil .. dren of the Pilgrim Fathers consent to worshi p at such a shrine? . r • No! We must come. back to the perfection of old and sacred history and to that religion which proves that our race is not the result of a. spontaneous natural development but that man came from his Maker a living soul, But where shall we go to find perfection? I answer ~ to the Great Pyramid of Gizeb, for within that grand primeval pillar of stone have been found the standards of weights and measures to earth and hea ven commensurable} and so assimilated to our O\VIl ancient and hereditary system that it does seem as if the Almighty Himself had given us an inheritance to be kept precisely for the emergency of the present day and hour. . . .. The inch is there, the yard is there, Our sabbath is there, Christ is there; ou r past ~ our present 11 yea, perhaps our future." (~~ Stone W i tness, ,<t Edgar, p. 7.)

The M~_stcr~) and Prophecy of the Great Ppamid records are ex amined for traces of the Great Pyra ... mid's scientific data, these are found in such com pletel y co-ordinated relation ship that the whole pyramid can be reconstructed from these data alone. The resulting pyramid is of the same dimenaions, externally and internally t as are given by Sir Petrie' 5 survey of the Great Pyramid.

"The ancient Egyptian records also proclaim the purpose of Divine revelation delivered to the scientists of long ago~ rega rding even ts which were then in the distant future. The many scientifically dated predict! ve indica tions of the ancient EgYP" tim records derived from the Great Pyramid builders are confirmed to the day I month and year by the scientific revelation of the Great Pyramid with- regard to outstanding events which have ha ppened in the past, that are happening in current times, and that are due to take place within the next twenty ... eight years.

'-'We are certainly Jiving in an age of intense spiritual depression, For this reason, the message of the. Great Pyramid is specifically addressed to this age, and, in the foreknow ledge of God, has been shaped to meet the requirements of this age~ It is a significant fact that it is only within com" para tivel y recent times that we have possessed sufficient technical knowledge to enable us to fully

Alabarcb. Josephus says! "Onias asked permission from Ptolemy and Cleopatra. to build a temple in Egypt like that at Jerusalem) an d to appoint for it priests and Levites of his own nation. This he devised, relying chiefly on the prophet Isa iah, who six hundred years before, predicted that a temple must be buikled in Egypt by a Jew to the suprern e God. He therefore wrote to Ptolemy and Cleopatra the following: 'Having come with the Jews to Leontopolis of the Heliopolite district, and other abodes of myna tion, and .finding that many had sacred rites, not as was due, and were thus hostile to each other, w hich has bef allen the Egyptians also through the vanity of their religions, and disagreeing in their services, I found a most convenient place in the fore-men honed stronghold, aboundi ng with wood ana sacred anirn also I ask leave, then ~ clearing away an idol tern ple, that has fallen down, to build a tern pie to the supreme God~ that the Jews dwelling in Egypt~ harmoniously coming together, may minister to any benefit.

Besides Scriptural references the ancient Egyptian records also proclai moo the purpose of the Great Pyramid, a lor. scientific exposition of the secrets of the universe," C~Bib1e in Stone, t'l Discipulus, in Foreword by Professor Davidson.)

Massoudi, the Arab writer, says that "On the easeern, or Great Pyramid as boot by the ancients, the heavenly spheres were Inscribed. Likewise the positions of the stars and their circles, together wi th the- history and chronicles of times past, of that which is to come, and of every future event. ,'t

The altar stood for the sacrifice of the Saviour t the la ver for cleansing, the golden candlestick for the illuminating presence of the Holy Spirit~ the altar of incense for prayer, the showbread for God's provision for all our needs, the veil for the humanity of Christt and the ark for the very presence of God, into which presence Jesus Christ, the High Priest, has gone to offer His own blood as the one supreme and sufficient sacrifice for sin (read Hebrews 9!11,1;).

The curtains of the court symbolized separation from the war Id, the wide-open door of the court the gracious mVI ta tion to enter and partake of the water of life freely, while the arrangement of the furniture in the form of a cross and the pillar of cloud and fire completed the picture of Ood' s protecting presence with all belie vers,

David also received the pattern of Solomon "s tern. ple by insp i ration (I Chronicles 28: 11.. 12) ~ "Then David gave to Solomon his son the pattern of the porch, and of the houses tbereof, and of the treasuries thereof, and of the upper chambers thereof, and of the inner parlours thereof, and of the place of the mercy seat" and the pattern of all that he had by the Spirit. ~,

CHAPTER VI.

GEOGRAPHICAL SIGNIFICANCE

The geographical position of the Great Pyramid is one of its most sign ificant Features. It stands as Isaiah tells u.s in the midst of Egypt at the apex of the delta or fan -shaped land of lower Egypt, and also at the border thereof t because it mat ks the point where the cultivated land ends an d the desert begins. According to Seiss, .... ] t stands on the pi votaI balance point of the entire land distributed over the face of the whole earth. A glance at any uni versal map makes this apparent, while we look in vain for another point on all the globe which sa naturall y and easily marks the center of equation for all inhabited land surface+ There is here a measurement or consciousness of the extent and proportional reb. non and distribution of the earth's con tinents and islands such as modern sc ience has not yet furnished or even attempted to give.'!'

The Mystery and Prop 'lecy of the Grca t P.)!f .amid thei r pyramid this In uch off the true line through ignorance of the exact location of the thirtieth degree, but in order to secure a rock foundation for a building they intended should last to the end of time.

"Another thing which seems to bear out the theory that these ancient builders ci ther received their knowledge of the earth's surface by Inspiratioo or early revelation, brought across the flood by Noah, is the fact that the top of the rock on which the pyramid stands has been beveled to agree wi tb the curvature of the earth on the thirtieth degree of latitude (about eight inches per mile) in order to Jncrease its stability ~ to which fact is due its being so little a tf'ected by ea rthquakes, having stood all these centuries practicaU y without flaw or crack except such as have been produced by settlement due to its enormous weight." ('~Bible in Stone," PP4 22-2~.)

"Even more wonderful is the Great Pyramid's angular connection with Bethlehem, the city of David, where the man Jesus Christ was born. The .actual distance between the pyramid and Bethlehem agrees by a recognized proportion with the period between the erecting date of the pyramid and the date of Jesus; birth, 21 38 years; and by another connected proportion Jt also agrees with

Taking the even five hundred millionth part of this ~ we would have 1001 of our inches, and a fraction less than twenty .. 6.ve of these inches gives us the sacred cubit which God Himself gave to His people of old, (Gen~is 6 ~ 1 5 ~ Exodus ;, 0: 1 ~ 21 etc.) These sublime earth commensurat .. ing standards of length) the inch and the cubit, are precisely the ones set forth in the Great Pyramid, which would seem to prove that the builders had a know ledge of the exact polar di ameter of the earth, and this should prove beyond all question either original revelation or special inspiration.

"The earth's weight was also evidently known to these ancient architects, for as near 1y as can be (64 ]

inches is the twice ten millionth part; of the earth \1 axis of rotation . Ten times ten of these units or inches counted for a day" when divided In the united length of the Great Pyra m ;d~8 four sides. gives the exact number of days in a true year,

'~As near as science has been able to determine the mean density of the earth, five cubic inches of earth weighs i ust fifty times a 6f tieth part of the contents of the coffer measured in water at a tern perature of i one-fifth of the distance which mercury rises from the freezing to the boiling point.

~ This system of fiveness runs through the Great Pyramid and its rna j or references. Counting five times five courses of the masonry from the base upward we are brought to the floor of the Queen "s Chamber. The measures of that chamber all answer to the standard of five times five inches+ It is a rem arkable fact that ~ py r t in Coptic (which is much like ancient Egyptian) means division, and 'met' means ten. Thus we have pyr .. met, which in ancient Egyptian means the division of ten, and so the word pyr-a .. mid, a corruption of pyr-iuet, has evidently come down to us direct from. the builders of this great edifice.

"In one of the walls of the QUeel1'.s Chambers there is a deep sunken niche which is three times. five feet bight consisting of five strongly mar ked ( 70 ]

The M ysUTy and Prophecy oj the Great Pyramid stones, the topmost five times £. ve inches (or the sacred cubit) across, and its innf.!" edge just exactly one cubit, or twenty .. .five pyramid inches from the perpendicular center of the wall into w h.ich it is cut + It is significan t also that these builders sculptured in bas-relief on the northern face of the granite leaf in the ante-cham her (see chart) a boss exactly one inch in thickness, the inch being one .. fifth of the pyramid's dominating number, five,

"Leaving the Queen's Chamber and counting five times five courses higher we are brought to the Boor of the King~s Chamber, the walls of which are composed of twenty times five stones arranged in horizontal courses. Above the King's Chamber are five chambers of construction (to support the great weight of the masonry above) i w rule the coffer in the King'ts Chamber has five external sides and its whole measure is just the fiftieth part of the si2.e of the chamber in which it stands. I ts internal space is just f our times the measure of an English ~ quarter of wheat+ ~ By its contents measure it also con firms Sir Isaac Newton's determination of the length of the sacred cubit of twenty .. five earth ccmmeosurated inches.

"The Holy Ark of the Tabernacle and the Temple! according to the Sen ptures, was 21'2 cubits long, and 1 Y2 cubits broad and highs [71 ]

The My.sury and Prophecy of the Great Pyramid which, making all reasonable aUowance for the carpentry of the Ark~ would give 71 ~ 248 cubic inches, w hieh is wi thin two inches of the best com putation of the internal dimensions of the pyramid coffer. That they should be thus alike in internal measure, the dimensions . of one having been especially laid down by God Himself, is very remarkable! and that the two should thus mutually sustain each other in the recognition of one and the same earth commensu ... rated cubit is both striking and .signi£cant+ Nay t using this same earth commensurated cubit as identical with the sacred cubit, the further result appears that the Jewish laver and the Ark of the Tabernacle were the same in capacity measure with the pyramid's coffer, and that Solomon's "mol ten sea' was just fifty times the capacity of either of these. and exactly equal in interior cubic space with the King' s Chamber itself.

·'N ine is another n urn her very especially marked in the Great Pyramid, particularly in its sunward portions and tendency, Its practical shaping is nine to ten, for every ten feet that its corners retreat diagonall y inward in the process of building, they rise upward, or sunward, nine feet. At high noon the sun shines on all of its comers and four of its sides> counting nine of its most characteristic parts ..

4.~A Pyramid pound-weight of water is equal to a Pyramid pint-measure. A pint. therefore, accord .. ing to this Pyramid system of m easure, is equal to 28."S' cubic Py ron i d inches of pure water. This value for the Pyramid pinr, Professor Smyth ShOW5~ js very close to the value of the ancient Anglo-Saxon pint and pound, just as the ancient inch .. unit of linear measure is practically identical with the Pyramid inch. It is beta use of this near approach of the early measures of the Anglo--Saxon people to the Pyramid measures, that Professor 8m yth and many other students are persuaded that English .. speakin g nations of the present day have inherited the true earth .. commensurable weights and measures first divinely comm urn cared to the Hebrew nation +.<1 ('!he Great Pyramid, t<l Ed .. gar, p. 107.)

The Mystery and PrQphec)l oj the Great Pyramid system which the Creator meted out to them is the foundation of both ancient astrology and modern astronomy."

The numerical proportions employed by nature in all her chemical combinations are no less wonderful and accurate. ~ 'The electrons comprising gases or solids are more deli catel y counted out than if they had been weighed in the most sensitive balance, and every compound substance is only a combination of medical nicety," /u; a common .. place illustration, water always contains eight parts by weight of oxygen to one of hydrogen. This Js called the 1a w of constant proportion. I t prevails throughout all the combinations of the sixty or seventy so-called e1ementlry OOdies; not on1 y thU. but when one and the same body combines with another body in several proportions, the higher numbers are always multiples of the first or lowest. For instance, oxygen unites with nitrogen in 6. ve com pounds; as nitrous oxide; as nitric acid ~ as nitrous acid, as hyponi tric acid, and lsstl y as the powerful nitric acid. In these Jive compounds the

nitrogen is alwa ys represented by f ourteen, but the oxygen is always eight or a m u1tiple of eight. The relation of numbers in chemistry is so universally known that f urtber illustrations are unnecessary ..

In the organic world also the association of parts according to number is the principle involved in development. Every vegetable substance is built up by a subtle chemistry of nature which no human chemist can rival.

It has been pointed out by Dr. McCosh in his "T ypical Forms and Special Ends in Creation ~~ that, UIn aerogenous plants, two is the prevailing num her ~ 2, 4, 8, 16~ etc., being the num her of teeth in the mouths of the capsules of mosses. Three and the multiple of three is the typical number of the next class, endogenous, and five with its multiples is the prevailing number in the highest class, the exogenous.

"·A curious series 11 2i 3t '", 8~ l~, 21, 34, in which any two numbers added together gives the succeeding one, regulates the arrangement of the leaf appendages of plants generally, and par ... ticularly that of the leaves and Kales on the cones of firs and pines,"

In the animal world periodicity is a matter of com mon observa tion; it rna y be noticed in the lift of every creature from its first inception to its dea tb. Number particularly governs the !if e of humanity both as to days, months, and years. As jn life and health, so in disease nature em ploys numbers to designate her movement and her period.

CHAPTER VIII..

THE LAW OF CYCLES

In fact, man appears to be built upon what may be called the seven cia. y principle (six days of work followed by one da.y of rest), And man's whole life is divided in cycles of seven hours, da ys, months and vears, (See, Self Mastery and Fa te with the Cycles of Life, ''I by H. Spencer Lewis.) + When we see ilia. t design and number prevail everywhere about USt how easily we may accept the words of Christ, who said, ~t Even the hairs of your head are numbered. ~, And of Isaiah wbo declared that "God had measured the waters in the hollow of His hand ~ and meted out heaven with a span, and comprehended the dust of the earth in a measure, and weighed the mountains in sc ales, and the hills In a balance." ~(Isaiah 40! 12.)

Science has demonstrated how minutely the eye, the ear I and the nerves of smelling, tasting and feeling have been adjusted to the vibrations or pulsations of ligh~ sound and all substances with which they come in con tact. There are seven

The Mystery and Prophecy oj th, Great Pyramid primary colors, and all colors and shades of color are produced by combining these. There are seven tones in music, and all harmony is produced by combining them.

All the rays of light with their separate distinct number of VIbrations are received by the eye and blended into all the glorious pictures of creation. The ear catches the tones of a beautiful symphony and performs the mathematical feat of mterpreti ng them with a speed beyond the power of the mind

to comprehend. _

"If the five senses of human nature are tb us found to rest upon the expression of numbers for their very being, how natural and altogether probable it is that every expression of life is manifested In the same manner though they may Dot be perfectly recognized by us, And again, if the great book of nature presents to US such perfect order and system and such mathemaucal exactness, should we not expect to find an equal order ~ system and exactness in that other book! the Bible, and in the Great Pyramid, if It, like nature and the Word of Goo ~ is a product of Divine wisdom transm itted by inspiration to man tl (' 'Whitman' 5 Notes," p. 3.)

For ages observing men have recognized the prevalence of numbers both in nature: and the { 81]

Deductions drawn from numerous classifications

and a few simple runts which have been passed down to us from time immemorial have enabled students of the Word to discover' the signi£cance of the use of numbers up to twelve + For instance, One signifies unity or independence; Two, division!' substitution, help or testing; Three, divine per" fecdon or constitutional completion; Four, executive completion or the world number; Five signifies grace (readers will recollect our pointing out the wonderful "fiveness' t of the Great Pyramid) ~ Six signifies evils work, or men; Seven!' spiritual perfeccion; Eight a new beginning; Nine (a number which figures conspicuously in the Great Pyramid) signifies judgment; Ten represents the hmi t of creative responsibility ~ or the perfection of divine order; Eleven" disintegration; and Twelve, govern ..

mental perfection + Throughout the whole Bible divisions and subdivisions of one particular number are employed. Tha t num ber is 2; 20 t which curiously enough is just one-half of the magic

It also marks the number of years between the beginning of the ~ .. cleansing j udgment' t of J erusalem (U Kings 24: 1 .. 4) and the surrender or the city to General Allenby~ December, 191'. It is a scientific number based upon the revolution of the earth upon its axis, "The evening and the mom" lng~' of Genesis I: 'j set this law in motion for the earth) and Genesis 2 = 2~ 3 marks its establishment; and herein lies the key to it. One revolution of the earth upon j ts axis is the sim plest of our time cycles. The three hundred and sixty degrees describing it gives us the basic unit of our very sim ple week of time. Three hundred and .sixty eq ual divisions of time multiplied by seven, give. us 15' 20., w hich is this particular number.

Six expresses some phase of evil wherever 1t is used throughout the whole Bible. The Antichrist's num her IS 666 (Revelation 13: 18) . Thirteen represents rebellion. It is six in the second octave+

Eight is the highest number applied to Christ. It represents Him as Saviour and Redeemer-m aking a new beginning. All types where eight is employed foretell Christ. For illustration, David was the eighth son of J esse 1 3 »d of hj m J ehova 11 SCi.i d ~ '"'J have found him a man after mine own heart .". (Acts 1 3 ! 22.) The letters in the name U J esus " according to the Greek. alphabet represent 888 ~ These few illustrations pointing out as they do the uni versal use of numbers in the general story and construction of the Bible, together with those em ployed by nature in her expressions of life, m ust, it would seem, lead any investigator to conclude that either nature and the Bible must have a common origin, or that men three thousand years ago had a. fat more intimate know ledge of life and its relations than we ha ve too a y ~ And either conclusion counts heavily agai rut Atheism, EV91U! tion, and Modernism.

CHAPTER IX.

THE ASTROLOGICAL SYlA:BOLISM

Cassina commences his history of astronomy by sa ying, ~ 'I t is im possible to doubt that astronom y was invented from the beginning of the world ~ history -' profane as well as sacred, testifies to this truth r ~, Bailly and others assert that astronomy must have been established when the summer solstice was in the first degree of Virgo, and that the solar and lunar zodiacs were of a similar an tiquity ~ which would be about four thousan d years before the Christian era. They suppose the originators to have Ii ved in about the fortieth degree of north lati tude and to have been a highly civilized people. Sir William' Drummond sa ys~ ~ 'The fact is certain that at some remote period there were mathematicians and astronomers. who kn r:w that the sun is the center of our system and that the earth itself, a planet, revolves around it."

The constellations were certainly known in the time of Job, and are f amiliarl y ref erred to in that most ancient book. Sa yff artb sa ys, "They are as old as the h uman race." The author of Mazzaroth

[ 89 ]

The Mystery and Prophecy oj the Great Pyramid

makes the origin of the consteUations antedehivian, and thinks they were framed by inspiration for sacred and prophetic purposes. There are actual astronomical calculations in existence with calen ... dars framed upon them which eminent astronomers of England and F ranee admit to be genuine and true, and which carry back the an tiqui ty of this science, together with the constella dons, to within a few years of the deluge, even on the longer chronology of the Septuagint.

There is perhaps no much better test of a sound, practical astronomy than to be able to determine truly the four cardinal points, a very sim pie and easy thing most people would think, but not so easy when it is brought to the test. The compass alone can never be depended Oil pon except in a general way. The attempts of man to orient truly even with the aid of science have shown constant Inaccuracy. Tycho Brahe's celebrated Uranibourg Observatory is faulty jn orientation to .five minutes of a degree. The Greeks in the hei ght of their glory could not find the cardinal points astronom ically withi n eight degrees, but the builders of the Great Pyramid out 1n the Libyan Desert with no guide or landmark but the naked stars were able to orient their structure so exactly that the science of the wisest A thenian sages eighteen hundred years

[ 5)0 1

The Mystery and Prophecy of the Great Pyramid af terwards was sevent y times, and the observatory of U rani b our g nearly fout t1!D.€:5 farther out of the way than it. ( l' A Miracle in Stone,' t PP r 7 8~ 141 .. 143.)

Both Professor C. P. Smyth and Flanders Petrie agree that originally the pyramid's four sides pointed accurarel y north, south, east and west, but owing to the extremely gradual movement of the earth 19 surface the orientation of the pyramid's sides is now not absolute, but a little more than five degrees of an arc therefrom. In other words, the Great Pyramid actually pro\-es that the crust of the: earth is gradually shifting, which is something scientists have recently come to recognize and take into account.

Recent and caref u1 measurements of the exterior of the Great Pyramid have revealed the fact that itB "core-masonry base" is not truly rectangular but slanted Jn wards so that the center of each side is some thirty .. six inches nearer to the center of the pyramid than the same p oint on a true line. The result of course is that the wi dt h through from side to side across the base Js seventy .. two inches less than from comer to corner. This is marv-elously significant when we consider that there are three di fI erent year values known respectively as the solar year} the sidereal year, and the aaomalistic

{91 J

The Mystery and Prophecy of the Great Pyramid

~

year. These different year values arise from the fact that the Inclination of the earth's axis of rotation is neither constant in amount nor direc ... tion, and tbat its plane of revol ution is not rigidly fixed. N Ow when we exami ne the base plan of the pyramid according to its geometrical reconseruction, we discover the fallowing rem ark ..

able features: - - . _... . .

Firse-« That the actual ( recessed) structural circuit in inches and fractions of an inch (the inch here representin g days and fractions of days) gives a value for the sidereal year of 36'$.2)' 64.

Second-That the true square circuit of the pyramid gives a val ue for the solar year of 365.2 ~246.

Third =-That the geometrical circuit, internal to the actual structural circuit, gives a value for the anornalistic year of :; 6)' .2 I) 99 inches.

The cliff erence in the fraction s of these three numbers rep resents the di ff erent lengths of these years with an accuracy only arrived at in fairly modern times. To the ancients only one year ~ the solar, was understood; and its 1ength was only approximately determined, yet the pyramid gives the latter more correctly than does our method of reckoning in leap years with the omission of one in each century. Could this be mere coi ncidence?

[ 91J

The M J S ter~ and Pro _phecy of the Great ~lT"mid

Furthermore, they built a pyramid which de .. fined, by its shadows and reflections, the seasons of the year ~ Upon the day on which a shadow was cast on the north face of the pyramid at noon! the people went forth to plant their crops. Study proves that this shadow was not an accident be .. cause the pyramid was so oriented and its slopes so fashioned that, when the sun reached a certain height in the sky the shadow was cast by the pyramid. The following quotation from D+ Davidson's work, "The Great Pyramid: Its Divine Message," page 41 ~ will cause the thoughtful reader to give the pyramid some serious thought;

"In the Great Pyramid we have four sloping surf aces at the same angle of slope, accurately oriented, and built at a selected latitude. These comprise four constants.

I·We could understand the two structural con" stants having been purposely brought to a selected latitude and there oriented to enable the noon phenomena to define November 1. But the chances against the same four constan es def ni ng the begin .. ning and ending of summer by a horizontal south reflection and the equinoxes by northeast an d northwest directions are so overwhelming as to be deemed impossible ..

t 93}

'The Mystery and Prophecy of the Great P;vra.mid

. ",

~ 'Yet the. equinoctial phenomenon and the phe-nomenon of the beginning and ending of summer ~ both resulting from the same sim pie combination of constants, prove the phenomena to have been intentional. Three precise series of independent coincidences of such a nature can not happen

by chance," - "

I t was Hi pparch US~ about 11'0 B. C, who first noted wi thin historic times that the t; tar s as com" pared with the equinoctial or common year had fallen back: about trn rty degrees from what their time then was. At this rate of retardation it takes about nine and one .. half million of our days, or about 2; t 694." years for tllli: rising and setting to come back again to the exact point at which the calculations began. We thus have a Weat astronomical cycle, less than one-fourth of which has passed since man was placed upon the earth. Now it is a remarkable fact that the sum. of the inches

ln the diagonals of the base of the Great Pyramid

measure almost exactly that figure, 25 t 694. ,.. i\nd these figures are also found to be the measure o~ the pyramid's perimeter at the level of the King's Chamber On the fiftieth course of masonry, which may therefore be defined as the Processional Cir ... cui t of the pyramid.

The" Mystery and Pro phec "j of t he Great Pyramid

(Pars r 240-- 24 2) points out rha; while this might be the case, we can not be absol utely certain that either 2140 or 2144 B+ C.~ which is the date he prefers, were the ones in which the pyramid was finished, because there Js no way of knowing whether the reign of Oheops, the builder of the Great Pyra mid, included these years or not. The real purpose of the scored lines, as poin tea out by Mr. Da vidson, is probably to show that the pyramid day begins at midnight at the Great Pyramid, and the pyramid year at the beginning of the autumnal equinox, In other words, that it supplies a dictum f or pyramid chronology ~ ( "Bible in

Stone, pp. 29~ :;O~ 33.) ~

In this connection Messrs+ John and Edgar Morton, authors of ~ 'Pyranud Passages," Glasgow ~ Scotland, who have measured and photographed all parts of the Great Pyrami d, insist that by astronomical in dica tions as well as by exact time measurements these twin lines in the downward descending passages do indicat e the date 2l4O B. C. as that of the pyramid' s erection. In that year at midnight of the autumnal equinox the pole star of tha t period, Alpha D raconis, or the dragon star, shone down the pyramid's descending passage, while at the same moment Alcyone, of the renowned group of seven stars called the Pleiades,

The days in the solar year and in the synodic month are indicated many times by the pyramid's in .. terior dimensions.

But there is a yet grander thought embodied in this wonderful structure. Of its Jive points, there is one of special preeminence! in which all its sides and upward exterior lines terminate, It is the summit corner, which lifts its solemn index finger to the sun at midday. Now if we go back. to the date which the pyramid gives itself t and 100k for what that finger pointed to at midnight, we find a. f at sublimer indication.

Science has at last discovered that the sun 18 not a dead center . It is now ascertained that the sun also is in motion, carrying wi th it its splendid retinue of cornets, planets, its satellites and theirs, around some other vastly mightier center ~ Astrono-mers are not yet fully agreed as to what or where tha t center is. Some, however !I believe that they have foun d the direction of it to be the Pleiades, and particular ly A1cyon~ the central one of the renowned Pleiadic stars. To the distinguished Gennan astronomer, Professor J. H. Maedler t belongs the honor of having made zhi s discovery.

And here is the wonderful corresponding fact, that at the cia te of the Great Pyra .. mid's completion, at midnight of the autumnal equinox) and hence the true beginning of the year ~ s still preserved in the traditions of many na tions, the Pleiades were distributed over the mer idia n of the Great Pyramid, with l\kyone precisely on the line,

Here, then, is a pointing of the highest and sublirnese character that mere human science has never been able so ill uch as to bin t, and which would seem to breathe an unsuspected and mighty meanin g in to that speech of J ob when he demanded, "Canst thou bind the sweet influence of Pleiades?"

Could all these things have been mere coinci .. dences? Is it possible that they just happened go out of blind chance? Then what is the reason that nothing of the sort has happened in the scores of other Egyptian pyramids? And if they were really designed by the builders, whence then came this surprising intelligence, unsurpassed and uncontradictahle by the best scientific attainments of

There is on! y one possible answer ~ and that is-God! And if Cod, the Creator and upholder of the universe, built the secrets of the stellar spheres and their m aj estic movements into the Great Pyramid of Gizeh by inspiration through men whose minds were responsive to His own, is it too much to believe that He also guided and directed the thoughts of those who penned the sacred Scriptures? And if the pyramid's geography, mathe .. matics and astronomy is perfect; why should we doubt the truth of Cod's Word? If the Almighty through the responsi ve minds of f ai tbf ul men transformed the rock of Egyptian quarries into a vast mOD ument, and breathed into it know ledge worthy of the best achievements of twentieth century science, could He not through the divine power of the third person of the Trinity transform matter into the physical organism of man and breathe into that waiting cla y a part of Hi m.self ~ so that man became a living soul, capable of thinking His thoughts after Him-able to transform. the crude elem ents of earth in to t he ten thousand marvelously useful and beautrinl ~~S<~ that bless our war ld tad a y?

CHAPTER X.

TIm BIBUCAL PROPHECIES

In approaching the historical phase of the pyramid's message we ought to remember that what to us js four thousand years of history ~ was to the builders of this great "witness pilIar'~~prophecy: and by good right it should be classified as such; but because we are so accustomed to think of that which is past as history and that which looks jnto the future as prophecy ~ it seems best to treat all that the pyramid symbolizes up to our own day as history, and only that which is believed to teach regardi ng that which lies beyond us~ as prophecy.

Per ha ps the most marvelous thing about this great pile: is that without the chiseling of; a single letter or figure its builders have not only given us a great mass of geogra phical, rna thema tical, and astronom ical da ta, but have portrayed with sur" prising eloquence and accuracy the movements of mankind along the: two great avenues that lead to the final destinies of our race.

Prom the earliest known time different portions of the heavens have been designated and kn own by

The" Mystery and Prophec:i of tI~e Grear Pyramid certain figures supposed to be outlined by the stars which they embrace. There are now about eighty of these constellations. The stars of which they are composed the Bible declares to be for "signs" as well as for seasons, days and years. The probability is that the earlier and more rem at' kable of these designations were made by GJd Himself even before the £oocL Josephus attributes the invention of the constella tions to the family of Seth, the son of Adam, and refers to ancient writers as authority. Origin affi rms that it was asserted in the book of Enoch that in the tim e of that patriarch the constellations were already divided and named .. The Book of Enoch translated by Bishop Lawrence is as a whole an apocryphal production ~ dating somewhere about the beginning of Herod, before Christ. I t has some ten chapters devoted to the In ysteries of astronomy, the heavenly bodies, and their relations and revolutions. It will at least serve

to show what was the feeling on the part of those whom the writer T€:prf:~b; when he ~ayF.i that "all these things were made known to Enoch by Uriel, the holy angel, who gave the whole account of them according to every year of the world forever, until a new work, or a creation, shall be effected which will be eternal.' The twelve signs of the

[ 104 J

The Mystery and Prophecy of the Great P"ramld zodiac are plainly indicated in this book, (~Boo;k of Enoch, chapter 71, pp. 84_! 81, 232~)

Quoting Whnman's Notes, we find: "The word zodiac means 'a way,' and is an anagiaery zone of the hea vens, wi thin which lies the path of the SOOt moon, and principal planets . It is bounded by t\VO circles equidistant from the ecliptic, about eighteen degrees apart, and is ill vided into twel ve signs, and marked by twelve constell ations. The. .signs are geometrical divisions thirty degrees in extent, counting from the spring equinox in the direction of th~ sun' s progress through them. ~.

During the Jewish history and even down to our own day, the zodiac, which appea.rs in a circlet has had no beginning or end ~ and its true language could not be read. The Jews began their year with Aries, which all astrologers agree controls the head of aU organized beings. It was not until our own generation that someone solved the riddle of the Sphinx-the woman its head upon the lion' s body near the Great Pyramid ot Egypt~that the: beginning of the zodiac was found and its true story again told to the world. The word sphinx does not mean riddle, as so man y supposed, but union, or joined together ~ It was noticed that as the woman and the lion were uni ted in the sphinx"

I 10~]

The Mystery and Prophecy of the Grwt Pyramid

so were the beginning and end of the zodiac united in Leo, the Lon, and Virgo, the Virgin.

The gospel of the stars is a perfect story, begi 00111 g with the Virgin and closing with the King. i\.ll mythology can be traced through perverted stories of the zodiac.
