Andrew Collins | Genesis and Evolution of the Giza Pyramids | Origins Conference
Info: For the last twelve years Andrew Collins (http://www.andrewcollins.com) has been working with chartered engineer Rodney Hale to understand the genesis and evolution of the Giza pyramid field. Together they have discovered a simple and previously unrecognised underlying geometry embracing not only the three main pyramids at Giza, but also the Sphinx monument. Andrew outlines their new approach to understanding the layout of the Giza pyramid field, which illustrates how during the epoch of their construction, ca. 2550-2500 BCE, the Giza Pyramids were locked into very specific alignments involving key stars of the constellation of Cygnus. He explains why Cygnus was so crucial to the ancient Egyptians’ view of the afterlife, and demonstrates also how this stunning new vision of the Giza plateau provides compelling evidence that the proto-Sphinx, or Sphinx knoll, must have played a key role at Giza even before the creation of its famous pyramid field. He will go on to reveal the true genesis point of the Giza monuments, and the origins of ancient Egyptian civilization.
