Magic Temples and Shrines:
In the construction of pyramids it has been determined that
they contain mathematical wisdom, highly accurate maps and tables.
Within them are found treasure houses, secret chambers, inner
sanctums of granite, hidden death traps, secret passages and
locks for doors via leverage. Graves with priceless artifacts
of culture, wealth, religious beliefs and icons have been uncovered.
Red granite sarcophagus are covered with runes of lore, prophecy,
warning and curses.
Occult and mystical lights appear
when rituals are conducted there (Mystic illuminations). Upon
entering one might encounter a blizzard of bats and foul air,
granite plugs, and narrow wells designed as escape routes. They
have ventilation systems and the bases of the pyramids are related
to geographical as well as measurement of the Earth's circumference
mathematically equated via advanced geometry.
It is said the voice of Sphinx speaks
to certain people in dreams and if they do as bid they are told
of a reward that is prophecy for them and comes true.
Secret chambers remain hidden,
roughhewn stones amid polished limestone. Vertically stacked
stones vs staggered stones of other areas. Precision construction.
Near perfect alignment to compass points. Designed with mathematical
and astronomical facets. Harbor mystical powers. Symbol of universal
measurement of length and time. Gigantic sundial and astronomical
observatory. Shape has physical effects on living and inanimate
objects (helps plants grow and keeps food longer). Sun worship.

to let elect people mystically transform into Gods. One would
lay for 3 days and nights while the soul entered the spiritual
realm and immortality. Others are for grain storehouses. Repositories
of ancient knowledge, prophecy and guide to the stars. Proof
of the Divine Hand's presence in the world. Shows mathematical
distance from center of earth to the poles.
It is said the architects were guided
by God to build them via extra-ordinary knowledge beyond the
level at that time. Shadows of the pyramids mark astronomical
movements and seasonal change so they serve as a calendar. Distance
of Earth to Sun in multiples and dates pertaining to the 2nd

Spirit festival. 2,000 years ago Celts believed Halloween was
the time that spirit is returned to the earth to visit the place
where they had lived. To welcome these spirits, people held
festivals and paraded in animal costumes. To drive away the
evil spirits, ghosts and witches that also roamed about, they
guilt huge bonfires on mountaintops and hillsides. Special powers
radiated forth from the spirits on Halloween and the people
called upon them that holiday. Young girls in England and Ireland
were said to have summoned the good spirits to help them catch
a glimpse of the man they would someday marry. At the hour of
