Two dots or not two dots? That is the question…

July 24th, 2014

I have read Scott’s article in the July/August 2014 issue No. 106 of Atlantis Rising.

Scott bases his case on a page from Howard Vyse’s diary, where various cartouches bearing the name “Khufu” are seen. Notwithstanding the rather confusing argument about what Howard Vyse allegedly “intented” to do, Scott’s hypothesis (and it is one) all boils down to TWO DOTS that may or may not be there. Without those two dots, his whole case falls down like a pack of cards.

Let us take a closer and unbiased approach.


1. Here is the part of Vyse’s diary which shows the Cartouches.


2. This is the Cartouche at the bottom of the page


3. This is an enlargement of the Cartouche at to of the page

4. This is a drawing by Scott Creighton which is meant to be a copy of the Cartouche at the top of the page in Vyse’s diary (shown again here)


It is evident to me that Scott clearly omitted to add the dark line that is slashed across the Carouche, and it is clear that he wanted to highlight the TWO DOTS under the snake sign.  But are the TWO DOTS really there? Admittedly there are markings that COULD be TWO DOTS but clearly not as visible as Scott shows them in his own drawing, or wants them to be. And what about the dark line that slashes the cartouche and partially covers the POSSIBLE two dots? What does it mean when someone slashes a drawing this way? Does it not mean, perhaps, that this drawing is wrong” or “ignore this drawing”….? And furthermore does not the little “X” sign on the top right also means “wrong drawing”? And does this not also explain the cartouche at the bottom of the page which is, in fact, the correct reproduction of the ACTUAL cartouche in Campbell’s Chamber?


5. Khufu Cartouche in Campbell’s Chamber


The obvious discrepancy between the original drawing by Howard Vyse and the drawing made by Scott Creighton in the Atlantis Rising article in issue 106, July/August 2014 has already been pointed out by Martin Stower. I tend to agree with him that Scott WANTED to see TWO DOTS when they may in fact not be there at all. For without those precious TWO DOTS, his hypothesis does not work.


6. Top image is by Vyse’s own hands; the bottom image is by Scott Creighton


My own interpretation is that what can be derived from that page in Howard Vyse’s diary is that he was correcting himself of how the Khufu cartouche should be drawn rather than plan a forgery as claimed by Scott. Would not this make more sense than to to imagine that Howard Vyse left such alledged incrimination ‘evidence’ in his diary for posterity?…

In 1996 Hawass, the Director General of the Giza Pyramids, helped two senior life-members of the Edgar Cayce Foundation (ECF) obtain a five-years renewable exploration permit for the Giza Plateau. These… two ECF members were Dr. Joseph Schor and Joseph Jahoda. The permit was officially under The Schor Foundation registered in New York. Dr. Schor was also at self-declared Zionists with interest in Israel, and his wife, Laura Schor, was Executive Presiident of Hadassah, the Women Zionist Organization of America. Neither Dr. Schor or Jahoda were archaeologists. Free full time access was given to The Schor Foundation to the Great Sphinx and the Great Pyramid. The official purpose of the project was to ‘find and repair faults and chasms for the protection of tourists’. The true and covert purpose was to search for the ‘Hall of Records’ and conduct ‘experiments’ at the Sphinx and inside the Great Pyramid, expecially in the King’s Chamber and the Relief Chambers. A ‘secret’ two-hours documentary was made of this project covering 1996-8. Copy of this documentary has now been handed to investigators in Egypt in March 2014.
When 1998 passed without the predicted ‘Second Coming’ and/or the opening of the ‘Hall of Records’, the ececutive president/CEO of the A.R.E /Edgar Cayce Foundation, John Van Auken, pushed the date to 2038 AD, by claiming that Cayce fortold that the ‘end of time’ is marked by the timeline of the Great Pyramid when it reached the 5th Relief Chamber (Campbell’s Chamber) where the Khufu Cartouche is.

At the beginning of this documentary made in July 2004 you will see John Van Auken with Josh Bernstein. “Digging for the Truth: Who Built Egypt’s pyramids?”. Then at position 18:00 you will see Hawass and Bernstein examining the Khufu Cartouche.
My own views on the Edgar Cayce affair: It is no secret that, since 1974, the Edgar Cayce Foundation has implimented a plan, with the help of Hawass and Mark Lehner, to find the Hall of Record and, by extension, bring about the Cayce prohecy of the ‘Second Coming’. Seen from the Cayce viewpoint, this may seem like a noble enterprise, even if it meant that the ‘end justified the means’ so to speak. But seen from an Egyptian, and hence Islamic-Arab viewpoint, it is, to say the least, very different. The involvement of Dr. Schor in 1996-8, a well known Zionist, as well as Christian fundamentalists, make this an even more sensistive issue. Oddly, my book (with Graham Hancock) “Message of the Sphinx” (1996) presents an astronomical theory that, quite inadvertently, seem to add credibility to the 10,500 BC date given by Cayce. So did, of course, the geological finding of Dr. Robert Schoch and John West. This, in a strange and unexpected way, brought us into contact with the ECF in 1995-6. But when Hancock and I discovered the covert mission of The Schor Foundation and Hawass in 1995-6, we exposed it to the Egyptian authorities. The full story will be told in detail in my forthcoming book Secret Chamber Revisted (Inner Tradition, Oct. 2014).
This Sightings documentary was made in 1996:

It seems that taking up ‘residence’ with generous honoraries is a trend with Zahi Hawass. In 2001 Hawass was appointed “Explorer in Residence” by the NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC SOCIETY (NGS), with an annual ‘salary’ that ranged from $80,000 to $200,000. This appointment lasted till 2011, afterwhich it was changed to “Explorer in Residence Emeritus”. In 2013 Hawass was appointed “Distinguished Scholar in Residence” at the SIERRA NEVADA COLLEGE (SNC), although the ‘salary’ he receives is not known.

After the 2011 Revolution in Egypt Hawass was fired from his post as Minister of Antiquities amid accusations of money laundering, bribery, fraud, corruption and mismanagement of funds. In 2013 it was suddenly announced that Hawass was ‘acquited’ of all these crimes. However, since October 2013 it has been known that Hawass and NGS are being investigated by the US DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE on possible bribery charges. The investigation is presumably still ongoing. Hawass also may be facing an investigation in Egypt for illegal activities inside the GREAT PYRAMID OF GIZA during the period 2004 and 2006 while he was Director-General of the Giza Plateau. Hawass may also face another possible investigation for his involvement with the EDGAR CAYCE FOUNDATION and some of its senior members and funders from 1977 to 1998.

In view of all the conundrum that surrounds Hawass, we may well wonder where next he will take up “residence”, and at what cost.

GREAT PYRAMID: Who Damaged The Khufu Cartouche?

February 23rd, 2014
THE CARTOUCHE OF KHUFU: When was it damaged?

UNTIL late DECEMBER 2013, as far as I know, NO ONE HAD BEEN AWARE that the Cartouche had been damaged (three or four small white spots on the top rim of the oval). The first person to point out the damage was Egyptologist Monica Hanna in late DECEMBER 2013.

So WHEN was the Cartouche damaged? And WHO or WHAT damaged it?
THE ‘WHEN’ the Carotuche was damaged:
A thorough investigation has produced official photographs and TV documentaries that conclusively PROVE that the Khufu Cartouche was damaged sometime AFTER July 2004 and BEFORE December 2006. (see links to youtubes below) (see also photographs here: ) .

It also proves that Hawass saw and examined the Cartouche in July 2004 BEFORE it was damaged and, later in 2007 and also in 2010 AFTER it was damaged.  Since he was the Secretary-General of the Supreme Council of Antiquities and also the General Director of the Giza Pyramids, as well as being dubbed the world expert on the pyramids, he, at least, SHOULD have noticed the damage. Hawass either did not notice the damage or, for reason that we do not know, FAILED to report the damage.

The ‘WHO’ or ‘WHAT’ damaged the Cartouche:
This remains to be resolved. But it will not be easy. This is because from July 2004 and December 2006  –more than TWO YEARS— there has been dozens, perhaps even hundreds of permits issued for ‘PRIVATE VISITS” to travel agents and tour operators allowing them to take up to 20 tourists each time inside the Great Pyramid outside normal visiting hours. And although these ‘Private Visit’ permits DO NOT not allow entry into the RELIEF CHAMBERS (the Khufu Cartouche in in the topmost Relief Chamber, it is unfortunately know that many of the tourists did, in fact, access these chambers ! A casual google search will demonstrate this fact. Zahi Hawass has also allowed  TV production companies to enter the Relief Chambers during July 2004 and December 2006, although I cannot ascertain how many.
POSTSCRIPT: Based on the evidence above, on the 27 March 2014 the MINISTRY OF ANTIQUITIES ordered a NEW INVESTIGATION to determine who/when the Khufu Cartouche was damaged during July 2004 and December 2006. We await the official results.
