John Anthony West's revolutionary reinterpretation of the civilization of Egypt challenges all that has been accepted as dogma concerning Ancient Egypt. In this pioneering study West documents that: Hieroglyphs carry hermetic messages that convey the subtler realities of the Sacred Science of the Pharaohs. Egyptian science, medicine, mathematics, and astronomy were more sophisticated than most modern Egyptologists acknowledge. Egyptian knowledge of the universe was a legacy from a highly sophisticated civilization that flourished thousands of years ago. The great Sphinx represents geological proof that such a civilization existed. This revised edition includes a new introduction linking Egyptian spiritual science with the perennial wisdom tradition and an appendix updating West's work in redating the Sphinx. Illustrated with over 140 photographs and line drawings.

scholars  could  have  discerned  the  true  Egypt  one  hundred  years  ago.  For  that,  the  advances  of  modern science were first necessary — as well as the simultane­ ous  availability  of  the  mystical  doctrines  of  the  East  and  the  mind capable of applying  both  these kinds of knowledge to the  ruins  of  Egypt.  Looking back,  it  is  impossible  not  to  admire  the Herculean  labours  of  the  Egyptologists  —  their painstaking excavations,  the reconstruction of ruins,

and  metapsychologies,  precisely  intended  such  resonance  and  obviously  knew just  how  to  create  what  would achieve it.  And yet, mirabile dictu,  we have a profession  called  "Egyptology"  whose  practitioners  seem  totally  blind  or  indifferent  to  what  seizes  so  many  of the  rest  of us.  Rooted  in  an  impenetrable  materialism,  they  insist  upon  a  soulless  and  xiii  almost  mindless  Egypt  hopelessly  mired  in  ignorance  and  su­ perstition.  It  is  because

From the point of view of Pythagorean number theory, it is interesting to note the formation at this fundamental state of spirals and the division into four, the 'number' of principial matter. 110  cern  only  chosen  aspects  of  the  whole.  Science  has  decided  to  look  at  Ali  Baba's  treasure  through  a  keyhole;  its
