LAMBERT DOLPHIN & THE GREAT SPHINX
OPENING THE LOST TOMBS: LIVE FROM EGYPT
Dr. Gaballa Ali Gaballa and Dr. Zahi Hawass Featured
Hosted by Maury Povich
By Barbara Aho
On March 2, 1999, the Fox Channel TV featured the above special two-hour program on the opening of the sealed tombs of the Unknown and the Queen's Pyramid at Giza in Egypt. The live broadcast presented information on the search for the Hall of Records at the Great Sphinx, which supposedly contains the records of the lost civilization of Atlantis. With feigned surprise, Dr. Zahi Hawass, Director of the Egyptian Antiquity Organization, found instead the tomb of the Egyptian god, Osiris!
This TV special was extremely relevant to our research as part of the inculturation of society into the mythology of the god Osiris and the Gnostic religious system which is slated to supplant orthodox Christianity around the turn of the Millennium.
Those who have read the Cosmic Christmas report and/or have been on our mailing list for some time would have recognized the program as a continuation of the ongoing New Age attempt to validate the ancient mystery religions and return mankind to the worship of Osiris, reincarnated in his son, Horus. The mystery religions, aka Mystery Babylon of Revelation 17, worship Horus in various forms, i.e., Freemasons worship the Egyptian Osiris/Horus and Kabbalists worship this same god by the Chaldean name of Tammuz (Ezekiel 8:13). Alexander Hislop wrote in The Two Babylons :"The identity of Nimrod, however, and the Egyptian, Osiris, having been established, we have thereby light as to Nimrod's death. Osiris met with a violent death, and that violent death of Osiris was the central theme of the whole idolatry of Egypt. If Osiris was Nimrod, as we have seen, that violent death which the Egyptians so pathetically deplored in their annual festivals was just the death of Nimrod. The accounts in regard to the death of the god worshipped in the several mysteries of the different countries are all to the same effect. A statement of Plato seems to show, that in his day the Egyptian Osiris was regarded as identical to Tammuz; and Tammuz is well known to have been the same as Adonis, the famous Huntsman, for whose death Venus is fabled to have made such bitter lamentations. As the women of Egypt wept for Osiris, as the Phenician and Assyrian women wept for Tammuz, so in Greece and Rome the women wept for Bacchus, whose name, as we have seen, means 'The bewailed,' or 'Lamented one.'" (p. 56)Watching closely the developments in Egypt are many modern worshippers of Osiris, such as the Skull & Bones initiates of the George Bush family. George Bush, Jr., the Governor of Texas, coincidentally announced his candidacy for President the same day as the TV-staged discovery of the tomb of Osiris, while George Bush Sr. plans to be at the Egyptian pyramids on New Year's Eve 1999. William Cooper's book, Behold a Pale Horse, mentions this Millennial New Years Eve event on p. 73:"Simultaneously a vault containing the ancient records of the earth will be opened in Egypt. The opening of the vault will usher in the millennium. A great celebration has already been planned by the Millennium Society to take place at the pyramids in Egypt. According to the January 3, 1989, edition of the Arizona Daily Star, 'President-elect Bush is spending this New Year's holiday at Camp David, Maryland, but in 10 years he may be in Egypt. Organizers of the Millennium Society say he's already committed to ushering in the next century at the Great Pyramid of Cheops in Giza.'"On the internet is found an edited portion of Behold a Pale Horse in which Cooper predicts a sequence of apocalyptic events which will lead to the discovery and acceptance by humanity of the presumed records of the lost civilization of Atlantis.
William Cooper also relates to Bible prophecy the role of NASA in a project which he believes is designed to produce an explosion on Jupiter that will be perceived as a prophetic sign. This and other apocalyptic catastrophes which NASA may be planning and which will lead to the revealing of the counterfeit Christ are covered in our Cosmic Christmas report.
Although it is plausible that a series of catastrophes will lead mankind to embrace the spurious archaeological records as valid, Mr. Cooper makes us wonder whether he is exposing or promoting the mystery religions when he gives credence further on to the Grail mythos of the Rosicrucian brotherhood:"I am amazed at the authors of Holy Blood, Holy Grail and the information that they have unearthed. Most of all I am amazed at their inability to put the puzzle together. The treasure hidden in France is not the treasure of the Temple of Jerusalem. It is the Holy Grail itself, the robe of Jesus, the last remaining pieces of the Cross of Crucifixion, and, according to my sources, someone's bones. I can tell you that the reality of the bones will shake the world to its very foundations if I have been told the truth. The relics are hidden in France." (p. 76)William Cooper's mention of the "last remaining pieces of the Cross of Crucifixion" bears an uneasy resemblance to The Rod of an Almond Tree , a supposed relic from the Cross of Jesus Christ which Peter Michas, in his book by that name, elevates to a Scepter of Authority which will validate the credentials of the coming Messiah. Authors Michas and Vander Maten, base their fabulous suppositions on Jewish rabbinic sources and the misinterpretation of Scripture to prove that the Tree of Life in the Garden of Eden was passed through generations of Israelites as the rod of Aaron. According to the purveyors of the Talmud and Kabbalah, this rod, which possessed magical powers because it was engraved with the Ineffable Name, YHWH , was planted by King David on the Mount of Olives and later became the cross of Christ. Subsequently, according to Michas and Vander Maten, this ancient relic will be returned by Elijah the prophet to validate the true Messiah who will take his place upon the Throne (Mercy Seat) at the rebuilt Temple in Jerusalem.
In Matthew 24:24, Jesus Christ warned His closest disciples that there will be false prophets and false Christs preceding the time of His coming whose deception is so well executed that even the elect might be deceived. Having been forewarned, we are already quite deceived if we reject the possibility, indeed the probability, that the Freemasons and their Jewish allies, the Kabbalists, have insinuated themselves, their False Messiah and their pernicious doctrines into the very organizations which are posing as Discernment Ministries.
The Edgar Cayce Connection
The Message of the Sphinx by Graham Hancock and Robert Bauval cites a prophecy by the late psychic, Edgar Cayce, to the effect that a Hall of Records at the Great Sphinx at Giza would be rediscovered and opened between 1996 and 1998 and that this discovery would be related to the second coming of Christ:"Headquartered in Virginia Beach in the United States . . . the A.R.E. [Association for Research and Enlightenment] is a multimillion dollar organization that exists to promulgate the teachings and prophecies of the American psychic Edgar Cayce, who died in 1945. Prominent amongst Cayce’s pronouncements were many statements... to the effect that the Sphinx had been built in 10,500 BC by the survivors of Atlantis who had concealed beneath it a ‘Hall of Records’ containing all the wisdom of their lost civilization and the true history of the human race. Cayce prophesied that this Hall of Records would be rediscovered and opened between 1996 and 1998. He connected the opening to the second coming of Christ and asserted that the contents of the Hall would not be shared with the general public until many years after it had first been entered by ‘three who would make of the perfect way of life.’" (p. 306)The Message of the Sphinx is a pseudo historical/archaeological work that purports to unravel the clues of an ancient civilization, Atlantis, which are found in the Egyptian pyramids and the Great Sphinx. A major figure involved in the exploration of the Great Sphinx at Giza was Lambert Dolphin who directed the Stanford Research Institute project on the very site at which the Fox Channel documentary was filmed.
Lambert Dolphin, who claims to have became a Christian in 1962, has a website that is promoted by a Discernment ministry, Banner Ministries of the UK, which recommends Lambert Dolphin's Christian Resource files and Lambert Dolphin's Web Links. Since this expose, the first link, which is Lambert Dolphin's Home Page, has been removed from the Banner site, most likely because it displays a banner for the MYTHOS & LOGOS WEB RINGS, which includes, among many others, the following New Age webrings:
Circle of the Muses
Critical Psychology Webring
Fairy Tales, Folk Tales and Mythology Ring
Unity of Spiritual Experience Webring
Circle of Light Ring
The Open Your Mind Ring
Lambert Dolphin's Resource Files link to the Edgar Cayce Foundation and Kabbalist Chabad Lubavitch in Cyberspace, among numerous other occult societies. [Predictably, the Edgar Cayce link has also been removed since this expose.] Coincidentally, Peter Michas' states in the Preface of his aforementioned book that he received his education in the Hebrew Roots of Christianity through the Chabad-Lubavich.
On a page titled Remote Viewing, Channeling, ESP--and the Power of God , Lambert Dolphin describes his 30-year career at the Stanford Research Institute:"For thirty years I enjoyed a wonderful and challenging career spanning some 30 years with a large and prestigious West Coast think tank. [SRI] Our projects at the lab were often multi-disciplinary and the climate was one where all sorts of diverse ideas could be exchanged freely. Our projects ranged over the broadest possible range."Although Lambert Dolphin mentions the government's involvement with remote viewers for espionage, he does not disclose that in 1977 he traveled to Virginia Beach to negotiate funding from the Edgar Cayce organization for the SRI project at Giza -- nor that in 1983 he helped to set up the Independent Mars Project’ as consultant to NASA and leader of the SRI project at the Great Sphinx. The following chronicle of Lambert Dolphin's activities appears in The Message of the Sphinx:"Back in Egypt in 1977, a year after the Viking images had first reached the Earth, Mark Lehner [A.R.E.’s ‘man’ at Giza] made contact with NASA’s Dr. Lambert T. Dolphin, leader of the Stanford Research Institute project at the Sphinx ..." (p. 313)
"Later in 1977 Lambert Dolphin traveled to Virginia Beach to negotiate funding from the Edgar Cayce organization for a proposed new SRI project at Giza... In (1983) ‘The Independent Mars Project’ was set up in the United States by Richard Hoagland, a former NASA consultant, and Lambert Dolphin… " (pp. 313-14)Edgar Cayce was known as the "sleeping prophet" who entered deep trances during which he prophesied the existence of a Hall of Records in Egypt and identified its specific location:"One of the most persistent accounts given by Edgar Cayce during his deep trances concerned:
"'References and clues [which] indicate Egypt as a repository for records - records of Atlantis and ancient Egypt during the time of Ra-Ta, which may some day be found... that a vast underground repository was established containing a library of wisdom from the lost civilization of Atlantis: 'This in position lies, as the sun rises from the waters, the line of shadow (or light) falls between the paws of the Sphinx...There is a chamber or passage from the right forepaw [of the Sphinx] to this entrance of the record chamber...'"
"According to the readings, the Hall of Records is to be discovered and re-entered when 'the time has been fulfilled' -- which, Cayce suggested, would be at or just before the close of the twentieth century, perhaps in 1998. The readings allude frequently to Old and New Testaments of the Bible, certain numerous references to Jesus, and depict the rediscovery of the Hall of Records as being linked in some way to a series of events that will prelude the 'Second Coming' of Christ." (p. 88)Lambert Dolphin, who led the SRI team at Giza, wrote the following report of his involvement in the project:"In 1977, the US National Science Foundation funded a project at Giza again involving the SRI...According to the SRI team's official report: 'Several anomalies were observed as a result of our resistivity survey at the Sphinx...Behind the rear paws (north-west end) we ran two traverses. Both traverses indicate an anomaly that could possibly be due to a tunnel aligned north-west to south-east..." (Footnote: L.T. Dolphin, E. Moussa et.al, 'Applications of Modern Sensing Techniques to Egyptology', Menlo Park, Calif., SRI International, September 1977)Today, the Edgar Cayce Foundation and its Association for Research & Enlightenment credits Lambert Dolphin and his SRI team with determining the location of the hidden chambers in the project's early stages:"According to ECF/ARE historians the 1973-4 and 1977 projects paved the way for work. . . that would succeed in discovering hidden chambers. Exactly how and where is not made clear. At any rate in 1978 the ECF/ARE collaborated with the SRI and provided funds (to the tune of about US $50,000) for a more detailed survey of the Sphinx enclosure and the nearby Sphinx Temple. Should any 'anomalies' be found it was agreed that the SRI was to confirm them with acoustic sounding techniques..." (p. 91)The Edgar Cayce Foundation funded SRI again in 1982, at which time the location of the mysterious chambers under the paw of the Great Sphinx was verified by SRI:"Adding to the intrigue were further discoveries that the SRI made around the Sphinx in 1982 as a result of yet another project financed by the Edgar Cayce Foundation. Mark Lehner . . . described what the SRI did as follows:
"They brought a very powerful acoustical sounder, which is a long pencil-shaped thing...They put the sounder underneath the paw [of the Sphinx] and always got a good, clear signal - there's no underground cavity blocking it. And they put it along the paw between the elbow and that box on the side...and there was always a good signal. But, at my prompting, they put it on the bedrock floor inside the box - and it was dead in three places where they put it down, as though there is some kind of opening or empty space underneath that was blocking the signal..." (p. 93)The current president of the A.R.E. and Edgar Cayce Foundation is Cayce's grandson, Charles T. Cayce. According to Hancock and Bauval, these organizations have carried on various initiatives at the Giza pyramid for the past two decades. Charles Cayce has expressed his conviction that "the truth about Giza was going to emerge and the 'Hall of Records' was going to be discovered, just as Edgar Cayce had prophesied." (p. 97-8)
Hancock and Bauval also state that, in March 1996, the Egyptian Antiquities Organization granted a one-year renewable license for the project at the Sphinx and that team members consulted with former NASA consultant, Dr. James Hurtak, and SRI consultant, Richard Hoagland -- the men with whom Lambert Dolphin worked on the Independent Mars Project. Lambert Dolphin's Web Links include various websites which purvey esoteric science, including Richard Hoagland's UFO News. (p. 315)
In 1985, the Edgar Cayce Foundation and A.R.E. magazine, "Venture Inward," identified the primary agency created to fulfill Edgar Cayce's prophecy concerning the second coming of Christ:"There has been one systematic search, a sort of direct shot at finding the Hall of Records, when the Edgar Cayce Foundation funded SRI International..." (p. 85)For information on the Freemasons' control of NASA and connections with the Edgar Cayce Foundation, please refer to Cosmic Christmas under Remote Viewers.
The Fox Channel documentary opened with the proposition that an advanced civilization once populated Mars until a cataclysmic event caused it to relocate to Earth. This unproven hypothesis which is underwritten by the American taxpayers, is defended in a paper, The Sphinx / Mars Connection also by Robert Bauval and Graham Hancock. In this report, the Masonic Egyptologists mention Lambert Dolphin's influence and enterprise with NASA consultant, Richard Hoagland, in pioneering the Independent Mars Investigation Project under the sponsorship of SRI.THE MYSTERIOUS STRUCTURES THAT MAY UPSTAGE
NASA'S EVIDENCE OF MARTIAN LIFE
August 17-19, 1996
from the 'Daily Mail' - London
by Robert Bauval and Graham Hancock
Could the sphinx of Mars be proof of an alien civilization as great as our own?
"...Former NASA consultant Richard Hoagland is convinced there may be a 'terrestrial connection' between Giza and Cydonia - the region of Mars where the mysterious structures are located - perhaps a common source that imparted the same legacy of knowledge and symbolism on both worlds.
"Hoagland's interest in Giza began when he met Dr. Lambert Dolphin , a scientist from the Stanford Research Institute (SRI) who had conducted radar and seismographic research to locate hidden chambers near and under the Great Sphinx.
"Dr. Dolphin was captivated by Hoagland's idea of a 'Martian Sphinx' - the Face - and , in 1983, was instrumental in helping Hoagland set up the Independent Mars Investigation Project under the aegis of SRI..."The Sphinx Bulletin by the same authors indicates there has been no minor controversy between the Egyptian government which has sought to preserve the Egyptian heritage and the Masonic Don Quixotes who see sphinxes and pyramids in the sky rather than windmills, and spend their lives and our substance pursuing hidden caverns containing spurious records of lost civilizations from outer space.
Finally, a brief portion of the Appendix of The Message of the Sphinx, is worth quoting which shows the professional relationship between Lambert Dolphin of Stanford Research Institute and Dr. Zahi Hawass, former Director and present Undersecretary of State for Egypt's Giza Plateau of the Egyptian Antiquity Organization who, we are told, discovered the tomb of Osiris this week on Fox TV.
The Message of the Sphinx
The Door Inside the Great Pyramid;
Tunnels - and Chambers Under the Great Sphinx
Since the first English-language edition of this book went to press in February i996 there have been a number of significant developments concerning the opening of the door in the Great Pyramid at the end of the southern shaft of the Queen's Chamber (see in particular Chapter 7) and the search for tunnels and chambers under the Great Sphinx (see in particular Chapter 2 and Chapter 5). We anticipate that there will be further developments--quite possibly of major historical significance-which we will cover in a future book. It is our intention, meanwhile to monitor this 'running story' and to update our readers in a series of appendices that will be published in future editions of The Message of the Sphinx.
The update presented herewith, covers the period from March to end-August 1996.
The Great Pyramid
At the end Of 1995, as reported in Chapter 6 and Chapter 7, the position of the Egyptian Antiquities Organization regarding the 'door' at the end of the southern shaft of the Queen's Chamber was apparently one of official disinterest. The reader will recall that Dr Nur El Din, (Chairman of the EAO (now renamed the Supreme Council of Antiquities) had declined Rudolf Gantenbrink's offer to donate the robot to the Egyptian government and to train an Egyptian technician to operate it: 'Thank you for your offer to train the Egyptian technician... Unfortunately we are very busy for the time being, therefore we will postpone the matter...1. Similarly Dr Zahi Hawass had declared: 'I do not think this is a door and nothing is behind it.'2
In March 1996, however, Dr Hawass changed his mind, declaring in the Egyptian Gazette that Gantenbrink's find was of huge interest and that the door would be opened in September 1996 by a multinational team led by the Egyptian geologist (and NASA consultant) Dr Farouk El Baz. Rudolf Gantenbrink would not be involved and 'another robot' -- not Upuaut--would be used to explore the shaft. Participating in the exploration would be a 'Canadian' contingent.3
The Canadian element, 'Amtex', is headed by Peter Zuuring, a wealthy Dutch-Canadian businessman, who told us that he had shown the Egyptians how the door could be opened 'relatively inexpensively... We're working with Spar Aerospace to design a miniature arm with tools that could first tap the door, knock it open and try to lever things a little bit to see if there's anything loose. But I think ultimately we'll go straight through.'
In two conversations, Souring told us that he thought it unlikely that the project could start as early as September 1996: the following year, he said, 1997, was far more likely. The objective, which might take some time, was to raise the huge sum of ten million dollars to promote a staged 'live opening' of the door on international television networks. 'I'm working with a private guy who is a personal friend of Hawass and we are absolutely going to drum this thing to death. Whatever the event, we are going to stage, it will be televised live.'4
The Great Sphinx
In 1993-4 (see Chapter 2 and Chapter 5) Dr Zahi Hawass appeared to be adamantly opposed to the notion that the Sphinx might be far older than ancient Egypt - and thus the work of a lost civilization. The reader will recall that the EAO official was particularly incensed by the NBC television film, The Mystery of the Sphinx, that was made about the work of John Anthony West. In addition Hawass had been personally responsible for expelling John West and his research team from the Sphinx enclosure. The team included the geologist Robert Schoch, a Professor at Boston University, and the seismologist Thomas Dobecki (who was to identify a large rectangular chamber concealed in the bedrock at a depth of about twenty feet beneath the front paws of the Sphinx).
The NBC documentary linked the Sphinx to Atlantis and suggested that the chamber of Thomas Dobecki's seismograph had detected beneath its paws might have some sort of time capsule of Atlantean wisdom and history. Hawass called these claims: 'American hallucinations. West is an amateur. There is absolutely no scientific base for any of this. We have older monuments in the same area. They definitely weren't built by men from Atlantis. It's nonsense and we won't allow our monuments to be exploited for personal enrichment. The Sphinx is the soul of Egypt.'5
An article in the Egyptian press responding to the NBC film quoted Dr Hawass on his further reasons for expelling John West and his team from the Sphinx enclosure: 'I have found that their work is carried out by installing endoscopes in the Sphinx's body and shooting films for all phases of the work in a propaganda...but not scientific manner. I therefore suspended the work of this unscientific mission and made a report which was presented to the permanent commission who rejected the mission's work in the future.'6
The NBC film was produced by Boris Said (see Chapter 2) and partially financed by investments from members of the Association for Research and Enlightenment (ARE). Headquartered in Virginia Beach in the United States (see Chapter 5), the ARE is a multimillion dollar organization that exists to promulgate the teachings and prophecies of American psychic Edgar Cayce, who died in 1945. Prominent amongst Cayce’s pronouncements were many statements... to the effect that the Sphinx had been built in 10,500 BC by the survivors of Atlantis who had concealed beneath it a ‘Hall of Records’ containing all the wisdom of their lost civilization and the true history of the human race. Cayce prophesied that this Hall of Records would be rediscovered and opened between 1996 and 1998. He connected the opening to the second coming of Christ and asserted that the contents of the Hall would not be shared with the general public until many years after it had first been entered by ‘three who would make of the perfect way of life.’"7 ... (pp.304-6)
Mars and Giza:
Strange connections and synchronicity
In our research we have stumbled across a tangled web of clues, connections and overlapping interests appearing to suggest that American scientists with links to NASA may have quietly involved themselves, since at least in the 1970's, in covert 'expeditions' to unveil the secrets of the great pyramids and the Great Sphinx of Giza. The story, oddly enough, appears to be running in parallel with research stemming from the existence of curious pyramidial structures (and a gigantic Sphinx-like 'Face') that were photographed on Mars by NASA spacecraft during the 1970s.
In 1971 NASA's Mariner 9 probe took the first ever photographs of strange 'pyramid' structures on Mars on a region of the planet known to astronomers as Elysium. Dr James Hurtak, a graduate in remote sensing technology (and an acquaintance of Mark Lehner's) was one of the earliest researchers to show interest in the Elysium 'pyramids' -- which were officially dismissed by NASA as 'tricks of light'. In 1975, despite NASA's apparent indifference, Hurtak predicted that further finds of similar structures, including a Sphinx-like monument, would be made on Mars and that they would all prove to be connected in a great cosmic blueprint to the Giza monuments in Egypt. 22
Hurtak is an active campaigner against the secrecy of the United States military and related agencies with regard to UFO 'cover-ups' and other similar issues. He also claims to have had close links with researchers at California's prestigious Stanford Research Institute, America's second largest scientific think-tank (which has an annual budget from the United States government of over three hundred million dollars). the SRI's projects have included the 'Remote Viewing Program' (started in 1972), funded by the CIA as an intelligence-gathering exercise, which recruited top psychics to 'remote view' enemy military installations and other sites.
In 1973, as we saw in Chapter 5, the Egyptian Antiquities Organization (EAO) granted an official license to the SRI, permitting it to conduct surveys around the Great Sphinx at Giza using ground-penetrating radar and seismographs. The local sponsor of this project was Cairo's Ain Shams University. We recall that in the same year Hugh Lynn Cayce sent Mark Lehner to the American University in Cairo with funds raised by ARE members.
In 1976 a second NASA probe, Viking I, went into Mars orbit. In the region known as Cydonia it photographed several more pyramidial structures (including the five-sided 'DYM Pyramid') and the famous 'Face'. Complete with its distinctive Sphinx-like headdress, this latter feature has been calculated from the NASA images to be 1.6 miles in high. NASA has argued officially that it is nothing more than a small mountain, naturally weathered. But how many mountains have their left and right sides so intricately similar? Image analysts say that the 'bilateral symmetry' of the Face, mimicking a natural, almost human appearance, is most unlikely to have come about by chance. And this impression is confirmed by other characteristics that have subsequently been identified under computer enhancement. These include 'teeth' in the mouth, bilaterally crossed lines above the eyes, and regular lateral stripes in the headpiece -- suggestive, to some researchers at least, of the nemes headdress of ancient Egyptian pharaohs. 23
Back in Egypt in 1977, a year after the Viking images had first reached the Earth, Mark Lehner [A.R.E.’s ‘man’ at Giza] made contact with NASA’s Dr. Lambert T. Dolphin, leader of the Stanford Research Institute project at the Sphinx. The reader will recall from Chapter 5 that Lehner was by then already well acquainted with Zahi Hawass.
Later in 1977 Lambert Dolphin traveled to Virginia Beach to negotiate funding from the Edgar Cayce organization for a proposed new SRI project at Giza. The purpose of this project was to use the latest remote sensing technology to search for hidden chambers around and under the Sphinx -- with Lehner again 'participating as the Edgar Cayce Foundation's "man in Cairo". Several underground cavities were detected by this Sphinx Exploration Project.
In 1978 Mark Lehner proposed a project on the Sphinx to the American Research Centre in Egypt. The project, again partially financed by the Edgar Cayce group, was approved and went ahead with Lehner as its Field Director. Soon afterwards a United States registered company called Recovery Systems International (RSI) appeared on the scene. As we saw in Chapter 5, it undertook core drillings in front of the Sphinx to investigate the promising underground cavities previously pinpointed by SRI.
In 1983 Hugh Lynn Cayce died and the management of the Edgar Cayce group was handed to his son, Charles Thomas Cayce. In the same year, ‘The Independent Mars Project’ was set up in the United States by Richard Hoagland, a former NASA consultant, and Lambert Dolphin. Meanwhile in 1987 Dr Zahi Hawass completed his education in the United States and returned to Egypt to be appointed as the EAO's Director General of the Giza Plateau.
In March 1996 Dr Hawass announced that the Egyptian scientist Farouk El Baz (whose name...translates into ancient Egyptian as Horus) had been chosen to lead a team to open the secret door inside the Great Pyramid at the end of the southern shaft of the Queen’s Chamber. The reader will recall that Amtex, the Canadian company participating in the project, claim to be ‘working with Spar Aerospace’ to devise a tool to open or ‘go straight through’ the door. Spar Aerospace are better known for manufacturing hydraulic arms used in NASA Space Shuttles. As we noted at the beginning of this appendix, Dr El Baz, a graduate of Cairo’s Ain Shams University, is a NASA consultant. He has been involved for many years with studies of geological formations on the Moon and on Mars and he is a one-time personal friend of astronauts Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstrong. It was El Baz, nicknamed King by his NASA colleagues, who in 1969 chose the spot for the Apollo 11 Moon landing. El Baz is the founder of Centre of Remote Sensing at Boston University and presently serves as its Director. 24
Also in March 1996 the EAO [Egyptian Antiquities Organization] granted a one-year renewable license for the project at the Sphinx -- see above -- financed by Joseph Schor. Project members include Boris Said, Thomas Dobecki, and four senior geologists from Florida State University, who began to work with a million dollars worth of ground-penetrating radar and seismic equipment at their disposal. It was reported to us that team members had consulted with Dr. James Hurtak and Richard Hoagland in August 1996. (pp. 312-15)
