A New Sphinx/Leo Alignment Clue Unlocks A Grand Unified Star Map
Sample extract of Wayne Herschel’s Egyptian findings: Chapter One - 'The Hidden Records' with updates
As an explorer of ancient paranormal events and an avid researcher of ancient civilisations for the last 15 years, Wayne Herschel has always believed that if one can understand the reason behind the enigmatic Sphinx at Giza, then this would surely provide a vital clue to unlocking the mystery of the pyramids. And if it were possible to crack this age old code, this would elucidate who the builders were and where they came from.
|Author Wayne Herschel at Giza
These are the key questions that prompted Wayne's amazing journey. However, before he claims as so many authors before him have done, that he has made some extremely crucial new breakthroughs, he invites you to preview a whole string of findings that validate his theory that the genesis of humanity is linked to the stars.
There is no doubt about it, the most convincing foundational theories to date that have the explanation for the Sphinx and the pyramids written in the stars, are those put forward by Robert Bauval and Graham Hancock .They have suggested that the three bright stars in a row, known as Orion’s belt stars, are associated with the Giza pyramids, and that the side profile of the Sphinx purportedly appears to be identical to the stars of Leo. The latter was predominantly inspired by the Sphinx alignment with the equinoctial rising of the Sun with Leo at an ancient epoch.
However, historians remain adamant that these claims are inconclusive and most likely coincidence and perhaps too elaborate for the pyramid builders, who were people supposedly more interested in their mundane daily lives, fighting battles and building monuments for their dead kings. The fact that scholars remain unconvinced was highlighted in a recent BBC documentary, when a top academic ventured to sum up the views of both historians and astronomers on the Orion/Giza and the Sphinx/Leo theory, saying that:
“Perhaps there really is more to this pyramid-star idea, and if somebody can find it, then history can be re-written, but until then… the jury is still out”.
Maybe the time has now come to call the jury back into session. There is another piece of the puzzle that could put this Orion/Leo correlating theory and the pyramid star hypothesis onto a solid foundation, and because of the chain of breakthroughs associated with it, may force academics to eat their words.
Wayne Herschel is a new author in the genre of alternative archaeology. He is also an amateur astronomer. By reasoning through facets of this mystery, he believes he has been fortunate to have made exciting new inroads that will fully corroborate and elucidate the theory that the pyramids are linked to the stars. He feels his findings are logically conclusive, and hence it has become an obsession for him to prove to academia that the linking collection of what he is proposing is not coincidence. The full story has already been under evaluation by historians at various universities for a full year after his findings were televised in South Africa in early 2003 (where he resides) and before the publication of his book, ‘The Hidden Records’. However, no scholar has been prepared to make an official comment yet. Is it because his claims are too discomforting for historians to work with? Or is it because his theories actually hold water, but need more time before anyone dares to oppose the foundation of the beginnings of history?
Like many new authors in this genre, he has had the privilege of spending many years researching without the limiting boundaries and conditions of official institutions. As an independent researcher, Wayne does not allow himself to be coerced into ‘believing’ aspects of theoretical history simply because they have been put forward by highly respected historians. Also thanks to grants forthcoming from investors, his research has become a full time project over the last decade.
‘The Hidden Records’, which will launch internationally any moment now (watch News page!) takes the reader on an exciting journey from one clue to the next. Each clue is vividly illustrated and reasoned in layman’s terms before moving onto the next. The title has been prematurely available in South Africa, the UK and on Amazon.co.uk prior to the ‘official’ launch in the United States (see book ordering page). Wayne made some of his key breakthroughs in 1998. Ever since then, he has opened the debate for alternative archaeology to assess the evidence he has, that there is a commonality behind all the pyramids across the entire globe. For the first time in this genre, there appears to be a very controversial cosmic code that is encrypted within the ancient sites, with a clear repeating decipherable message. Even the megalithic site of Stonehenge in England fits the new stellar template… like a glove.
The Secret of the Sphinx
Wayne Herschel partially agrees with the general foundations laid by authors Hancock and Bauval. Even though they have a somewhat complicated explanation as to how they arrive at their interpretation of the Sphinx being representative of the constellation of Leo. However, he goes one step further, and as other scholars before him have done, boldly dares to ask: Why does it not do so in a more discernible and more conclusive way?
He believes he has found something that has been overlooked in the Leo correlation hypothesis. Going by Bauval’s premise that the three pyramids at Giza represent Orion’s belt, Wayne could not help asking himself: What if the ultimate meaning of the Sphinx (as Leo) was simply to indicate to an observer, a star correlation interpretation for all the pyramids in lower Egypt. Perhaps showing the way to break the code of a grand unified star map? But the million dollar question here was:
Was the Sphinx designed to be deciphered on the ground… or from the sky?
After all, if all the pyramids of Lower Egypt (when viewed from above), potentially represent stars, then it stands to reason that they should, without doubt, as a priority represent the brightest stars. But not just the brightest stars. Wayne believes they would need to be the stars of the known constellations, possibly along the edge of a complete 360° circuit of the Milky Way. In his unravelling of the mystery of the sphinx Wayne was very careful not to fall into the trap of the existing ‘Orion theory’, which inadvertently ignored the pyramids of Abusir and Saqqara.
As an amateur astronomer, a very obvious question crossed his mind. It involved the Giza pyramids and the Sphinx in a direct comparison with the stars of Leo and Orion’s belt:
Could the angle at which the Sphinx intersects the collective three main Giza pyramids, be the same as the angle at which Leo aligns with the collective row of stars that form Orion’s belt?
To satisfy his insatiable hunger for the truth, he got hold of a satellite image, which he hoped would have the answer. Much to his astonishment, as he poured over it in search of clues, everything would suddenly fall into place, almost magically. He measured the angle between the Sphinx in its position staring eastwards, in relation to the two largest pyramids at Giza. It intersected at a 45° angle.
Wayne recently went as far as pointing this out to Graham Hancock. Hancock admitted this was not something he had looked at. He was of the opinion that this angle seemed insignificant. But the point Wayne is trying to make here is the intentional positioning of all three pyramids as a collective grouping, in relation to the Sphinx looking eastward... i.e. the angle ‘Z’ that follows in the next image.
The best was yet to come. When Wayne went to verify the stars in question on his electronic star atlas, he ended up with virtually a splitting image of what was on the ground. The angle of intersection of the two brightest stars of Orion’s belt (angle ‘Z’) with an imaginary line joining the brightest star in Leo was virtually identical to his angle ‘Z’ on the ground... somewhere between 45° and 46°. (There is great difficulty in measuring this alignment because of the curved hemispherical way the computer represents the stars). Nobody to date has thought of measuring the possibility of these angles coinciding.
Starry Night Pro, a highly rated computer star program, which most amateur astronomers will be conversant with, offered an approximate interpretation. However, just to be sure, he had his calculation verified by a world renowned astronomer.
The astronomer who tested the theory is one of the senior members of the Cape Town Observatory in South Africa. He was the sceptic in the aforementioned BBC programme who commented how Robert Bauval’s pyramid star theory contained flaws.
He pointed out that the angle ‘Z’ for the star alignment was not exactly 45°, but closer to 46°. This was a negligible disparity for Wayne, who believes that it is highly probable that the ancients may have opted for the ‘purer’ mathematical angle, i.e. 45°, in their interpretation of this alignment. What he also found later when he researched one specific ancient site – a site that will undoubtedly cause quite a stir when what is found at this location is accepted for what it is – is that when the ancients built structures on the ground to replicate the stars, the tendency was to interpret the stars to the nearest ‘pure’ geometrical angles.
The location of this controversial ancient site will be explored on another page on this website, in case it may prejudice you from reading on, to give the data leading up to it a fair chance. All that will be hinted on at this stage is that ex NASA researcher R. Hoagland is very interested in the correlations on the site in question. He is currently evaluating the site with American astronomers and trying to calculate the odds against chance for the 30 or so clear correlations. Scholars have previewed this questionable location at a glance and in fear of being ridiculed will not consider looking closely at it, at all. Wayne asked the aforementioned astronomer if he would comment officially on camera whether he believed this Sphinx ‘Z’ angle similarity was purely a coincidence (to be used in a documentary scheduled for 2006), but he politely declined making an official comment.
Wayne strongly believes the Sphinx/Leo angle interpretation is simple, logical and conclusive. Why? Firstly because this alignment occurs with Leo in a perfect ‘upright’ position (with the brightest star, i.e. Regulus appearing along this imaginary line as the perfect alignment target). Secondly, the belt stars in relation to Leo, and the pyramids in relation to the Sphinx are both exactly in the correct position if they are to replicate one another i.e. they both have the smaller of the pyramids and the smaller of the belt stars in the right position. Already, this simple correlation statistically beats the odds against chance by 360 to one (falling within plus/minus half a degree or so in a full circle of probability).
Could it be that the Sphinx is watching the mirror image of itself in the night sky, and that the ‘secret mirror’ is the River Nile on the ground and the Milky Way in the Sky? Is this not a very simple way of beckoning the observer to interpret the Milky Way as a mirror copy of the River Nile on the ground, to enable him/her to decipher what the pyramids mean? This supports Bauval’s earlier theory.
But… is the Sphinx gazing at the rising of all the stars in the night sky, beckoning the observer to solve its arcane secret in association with itself as Leo? If so, what could be so important about this? Initially Wayne, like other researchers before him, could not see any new correlating pyramids with any stars at this point in time. He knew he had to look for a more accurate interpretation to Robert Bauval’s wider pyramid star map.
During the flight on his second trip to Egypt, he could not help pondering over the possibility that there had to be more. Severe doubts crept into his mind as to whether he had fully understood the ‘cosmic’ message the Sphinx seemed to be hinting at. He anxiously made his way to the viewing point near the face of the Sphinx. As on previous visits, he was overcome by a feeling of excitement and bewilderment. Anybody who has ever visited the Giza plateau will surely agree there is something about this monument of aeons gone by that is absolutely mesmerizing. What was it trying to say? This time the answer would come to Wayne.
He recalls how something triggered inside his mind... vivid http://www.thehiddenrecords.com/images of the constellations suddenly became very clear to him on the horizon and the stars seemed to take on the form of the ancient monuments in a long continuous line, as if a veil of mist had been lifted off them.
THE ENIGMATIC CODE IS REVEALED
It was almost as if he could hear the Sphinx speaking to him, saying:
“Yes… I am Leo, and all the pyramids represent stars…
By observing me from above you are one who can traverse the sky,
and see me from above like those who created me.
Orion will now ‘show you the way’ ...
to a sacred place along the eternal ring of constellations.”
This echo’s the age old Hermes prophecy (5000 year old):
