We are pleased to welcome as February 2012 Co-Authors of the Month Scott Creighton and Gary Osborn with their article titled “In Search of Khufu.” Their new book, The Giza Prophecy- The Orion Code and the Secret Teachings of the Pyramids, is a detailed study of the proportions of the Giza pyramids and how they reveal shifts in the Earth’s axis in the remote past—and near future. Offering a radical new perspective on the Great Pyramid of Giza and all the structures surrounding it, including the Sphinx, Scott and Gary show how the designers of Giza intentionally arranged these massive structures to create an astronomical timeline recording catastrophic events in the past as well as warning later generations of the precise times of future catastrophes. Join the discussion this month on the AoM Message Boards and have your views on this matter heard by the authors.

They reveal how the Old Kingdom pyramids of Giza were created, not as tombs for the pharaohs and their queens, but as “recovery vaults” to ensure the rebirth of the Kingdom of Egypt after a global disaster." The 'Recovery Vault' theory is a key part of our proposal in the book. Graham has written the foreword to The Giza Prophecy.


In Whose Name?

Who built the Great Pyramid? Most will reply, “Khufu” (Cheops in Greek) – and they are, in all probability, quite right. When did Khufu build his pyramid? Those knowledgeable in such matters will reply, “Around 2550 BCE”. And they are, in all probability….

…..quite wrong!

Whilst the name ‘Khufu’ is inextricably associated with the Great Pyramid (most likely as its builder), the name ‘Khufu’ is categorically not the name that should be associated with the 2nd King of the 4th Dynasty, a king who apparently lived ca.2550 BCE. It is our view that the placement of Khufu within this timeframe by mainstream Egyptology is quite erroneous.


Figure 1: Hieroglyphics for “Khufu”

The above image (figure 1) are the hieroglyphs of “Khufu”, an inscription not unlike that discovered in 1837 by Colonel Howard-Vyse painted in plain sight onto the hitherto inaccessible ceiling of Campbell’s Chamber high above the King’s Chamber of the Great Pyramid. This inscription (reading from left) is believed to be made up of the placenta (or sieve) hieroglyph i.e. a circle with horizontal hatchings (“Kh”), a quail bird (“U”), viper (“F”) and another quail bird (“U”) – “Khufu”. However, if we compare this rendering of Khufu with the hieroglyphic inscription for what is also believed to be the name “Khufu” from the Abydos King List in the Temple of Seti I (figure 2), we find a considerable difference:


Figure 2: Cartouche of ‘Khufu’ as Depicted in the Abydos King List

The inscription above (a horizontal rendering of the Abydos King List inscription) is also said to present the name “Khufu” although instead of the first glyph (from left) presenting the hatched circle glyph (“Kh”), it presents a plain circle, the glyph for the ancient Egyptian sun God, “Re” or “Ra” which is identical to the plain disc glyph in the other cartouches to the immediate right of this cartouche in the Abydos King List (presented vertically in figure 3) that are fully accepted by Egyptologists as representing the plain solar disc of the god, Ra.


Figure 3: 4th Dynasty Kings from the Abydos King List

Strictly speaking then, the inscription in the Abydos List (#21) that is believed to be the cartouche of ‘Khufu’ should actually be read as “Ra-fu” since the disc glyph here that should denote the phonetic “Kh” actually reads as phonetic “Ra” since there are no horizontal lines (hatchings) evident in the circle that would render the disc unambiguously as “Kh” – just a plain disc exactly like the plain Ra disc in the cartouches of his immediate successors, Radjedef, Rachaf, Menkau-Ra etc (figure 3).
