‘MISSING’ PYRAMIDS AT GIZA DISCOVERED…
ON AN OLD MAP!
A NEW recently revealed pyramid/star correlation theory for Giza
can now be proven conclusively. Wayne Herschel - the proponent of
the new hypothesis - has just found the remaining missing pyramids
that will make his theory conclusive.
|His ‘missing pyramid hypothesis’ was first mentioned
in his book, ‘The Hidden Records’, which has recently
been published. The author made this invaluable breakthrough while
setting out to prove author Robert Bauval’s much acclaimed
theory that the three pyramids of Giza correlate with Orion’s
|However, he proposes an entirely new star map interpretation to
Bauval’s, using a completely new layout scale for the Orion
constellation as a whole (which leads to the inclusion of the all
important Taurus constellation alongside it). This new scale interpretation
displays some very ingenious mathematical adjustments (explored
in the book) that must have been made intentionally by the pyramid
builders, and speaks of an incredibly advanced very early civilisation.
|Not only does this new scale provide the answer for so many of
the objections scholars have come up with… BUT IT HAS
BECOME INSTRUMENTAL IN CONFIRMING WHAT APPEAR TO BE FOUR UNRECOGNISED
PYRAMID RUINS AT GIZA! Discovering these elusive ‘ruins’
has also enabled the author to crack a decipherable message, which
is key to unlocking the prime reason as to why the ancients built
such an elaborate pyramid star map in the first place!
|Wayne, with many years experience in astronomy and familiarity
with star maps, could see why astronomers were not completely convinced
with the model Bauval proposed for his overall pyramid/star correlations
(see below). This star map identified two pyramids at quite a distance
from Giza (Abu Rawash in the north and Zaweyet Al Aryan
in the south) to represent two of the Orion periphery stars (Saiph
|Although there seemed to be fairly similar distances and angles
between the pyramids and the stars they were supposed to represent,
one could not help observing that Bauval had no counterparts for
the two brightest periphery stars of Orion. (See yellow question
marks in the map below). But the biggest doubt in this model was
the difference in scale when it came to comparing the size of the
Orion’s ‘belt’ stars with the size of the three
main pyramids at Giza.
|Academics have also recently pointed out that if the pyramids
had been built to represent stars in a grand design so to speak,
why would their builders not have included earlier pyramids - the
pyramids at Saqqara and Abusir - as part of a star map? One has
to query the inevitable here: What if there is a whole new interpretation
that answers all these questions? And if so, would it reveal an
age old secret behind the pyramids?
|It was this prime question that inspired Wayne Herschel to dig
deeper. Given the huge distance between the Giza ‘belt’
pyramids and the closest pyramids neighbouring them (in the north
Abu Rawash and in the south Zaweyet Al-Aryan), he could not help
thinking that completely different stars were at play in this pyramid
star map. What if two far more significant stars, namely Sirius
and Aldebaran, were to fit here as the correct correlations for
these two pyramids?
|After all, the ancient Egyptians revered Sirius as very important
and the name given to the star Aldebaran was “Ad-Dab-aram”,
which means “follower of the Pleiades”. (This
is because if one were to follow one’s line of sight from
Orion’s belt through Aldebaran, one’s eye would follow
directly to the Pleiades in the night sky). Quite uncannily, the
name even sounded like the pronunciation of the ancient pyramid
name “Zaweyet Al-Aryan”. What if there was a
connection here? And could it be that the Pleiades (part of the
constellation Taurus) also somehow fitted into the picture?
|This could easily be tested and if it turned out to be right,
the size of the Giza pyramids would most likely match the size of
the three stars making up Orion’s ‘belt’…
|Wayne Herschel’s quest was further fuelled by one of the
earliest Egyptian texts. The Thoth Prophecy claims the ultimate
|“Egypt is the image of the heavens… the whole Cosmos
|“Whole” being the operative word! This very conspicuous
clue suggested to him that a much wider interpretation of stars
in the night sky was at play and that in all likelihood a whole
360° revolution of the Milky Way (of which Orion and Taurus
form a part) was being replicated in the pyramid star map of the
ancients. It was a possibility that had been entirely overlooked
by Egyptologists, and it would leave him no peace. He was determined
to find out if there was an astronomical solution to the grand master
plan that was apparently at work in how the ancients had laid out
their pyramid field. To do this, he created a series of transparencies
of the stars.
|The astronomical scale was adjusted so that Orion’s ‘belt’
would coincide with the sizes the three main pyramids at Giza. The
transparency was placed over one of the most credible ancient pyramid
maps. The result was breathtaking. What emerged was a series of
very accurate correlations for the most prominent stars in Taurus.
(Orion is located alongside the sacred bull of the ancients…Taurus).
|But there was still something missing. Wayne was perplexed as
to why there did not appear to be any correlations for the four
important outer stars that comprise Orion:
|“Although this new correlation seemed to feel right, I felt
very sure there must be correlations at least for the two brightest
stars of Orion (that were left out of Bauval’s model).”
|“A trip to Giza soon solved this lingering doubt. As I gazed
over the plateau from the Sphinx, there it stood right in front
of my very eyes. It appeared to be one of my missing pyramids…
in all its grandeur! A forgotten ‘pyramid ruin’! It
had a vast causeway, which all this time scholars thought was the
ruin of a wall! The ‘pyramid ruin’ is so massive that
it defies all logic as to why no historian to date has interpreted
it to be a ruin! I could hardly keep the camera still as I photographed
‘my’ incredible finding (see below).”
|Note how the middle area of the ‘ruin’
seems to have collapsed. The debris is literally the same size as
the pyramid blocks at Giza. Is this ‘engineered’ bedrock
that was once the base ruin of a pyramid, or are these real blocks?
Note also the rear of the Sphinx (the vantage point from which the
picture was taken) and the eroded walls that have been said to be
over 10,000 years old, dating back to an epoch when rain fell in
|This is when the author decided he needed an aerial image of Giza.
There was only one option… an image from a hot air balloon,
and that is exactly what happened. He recalls how frustrated he
was with the result. The area had changed considerably over time
with roads, a cemetery and building developments almost cancelling
out what the area must have looked like in ancient times. But this
would not deter him.
|What he did with the photograph was to remove all the anomalies
that his research told him had been built in the last one thousand
years or so. The processed image that resulted from his efforts
was remarkable and it has been published in ‘The Hidden Records’
as the first colour overhead image of how Egypt once looked, at
the time of Napoleon arriving in Egypt. The new image clarified
that in all likelihood this was a pyramid ruin. This could be further
confirmed by it aligning exactly with one of the Orion stars.
|But what really had the author puzzled, was that
this ‘ruin’ had been built two thirds closer to the
three main Giza pyramids, when compared to the distances of the
star in question in relation to the ‘belt’ stars. The
author’s book, ‘The Hidden Records’, goes to great
lengths to reason this peculiarity, and comes up with some very
thought provoking explanations, which once again goes to show how
ingenious the pyramid builders really were.
|But what about the three other outer pyramids that would complete
the star map? What could be lurking under the desert sand? The search
was on once again… but this time for an antique map of Giza
by one of the earliest cartographers.
|The author tracked down a map that was well over 100 years old
which would give him a more accurate idea of what the plateau would
have looked like in ancient times. It resulted in a fantastic breakthrough.
It turned out that there were four anomalies exactly in position
for all four of the outer stars of a ‘two thirds reduced’
Orion. (The author gives a comprehensively illustrated explanation
of the very obvious reasons behind this differential in distance
scales). Note that an altered scale depiction for the distance of
the periphery stars has been introduced into the astronomical image
below, for realistic comparative purposes for ‘ruin’
positions and the apparently intentional improved mathematical portrayal
of these important stars. (Note how the intersecting alignment lines
in red all intersect at one finite point… is this just another
|As already mentioned earlier, even Taurus (ostensibly
the most important to the ancients according to all their texts)
fits into this new model? It too has its pyramid counterparts on
the ground! Not only did the author’s transparency test reveal
such correlations, but it also included numerous others beyond Taurus
and Orion… including the oldest Egyptian pyramids found at
|In an infinitely important breakthrough, it turns out that
the star map that emerged from Wayne Herschel’s transparency
experiment included very accurately all the brightest stars alongside
the Milky Way in one complete 360° revolution. This is exactly
what the ancient Egyptian text of Thoth claimed.
|Here is the final NEWLY ADJUSTED image in support of his theory.
Notice how his correlations differ from the model proposed by Robert
Bauval, as seen on the top of this web page. Wayne has overcome
all the previous objections proposed by scholars, all of which are
detailed in the book. After all… pyramids must be built on
bedrock and not sand and the code of mathematics seems to take slight
precedence over precise stellar positions. All of this is on debate
in the book.
