Explore the Forbidden Secrets of the Antediluvian Civilization of Ancient Egypt. Thousands of years ago a small Neolithic community in the region of the lower Nile abruptly rose to create the most majestic and enduring civilization of history. The ascension of Ancient Egypt to a previously unknown zenith of culture lasting thousands of years demonstrates advancements that have long eluded explanation. What secrets underlie their unprecedented knowledge and sophistication?
The voluminous lore of ancient Egyptian tradition relates that in the antediluvian time of zp tpj (generally transcribed as Zep Tepi), the “first occasion” or “first time,” mysterious, highly enlightened “gods” appeared in Egypt, bearing previously unknown technology and knowledge. The texts inscribed on the walls of the Temple of Edfu in Upper Egypt contain explicit descriptions of the time of Zep Tepi and the coming of the “bringers of knowledge,” recounting their arrival in a “cosmic egg radiating colored light,” bearing the “gods” who brought the gift of civilization to Egypt, the primary of which was Ptah, whose rule, the texts tell us, began circa 18,000 BC.
In the Sahara Desert of southern Egypt is an area known as Nabta Playa. Here an ancient stone calendar circle, along with 25 other megalithic structures, was identified by archaeologist Fred Wendorf and his team in 1998. According to an extensive analysis by NASA astrophysicist Thomas Brophy and his team, three stones inside the Nabta calendar circle represent the belt of Orion, just as the three pyramids of Giza align to represent that same constellation. The stones of the Nabta Playa’s stone calendar circle and the corresponding stars in the sky aligned on summer solstice nights as they appeared circa 16,500 BC. Based on these and other analyses of monoliths in the area, Brophy’s team concluded that the ancient builders of Nabta Playa possessed highly sophisticated astronomical knowledge, the type of knowledge we associate with advanced technology and civilization.
Plato (c. 428-348 BC) writes of Egyptian masters presenting him with historical records extending back some 18,000 years: “Egypt has recorded and kept eternally the wisdom of the ancient ages, all coming from time immemorial when gods governed the earth in the dawn of civilization.” Herodotus tells us that when Hecataeus of Miletus (550-476 BC) boasted to the Egyptian priests that he could trace his ancestry through fifteen centuries, they quietly showed him, in a hidden sanctuary deep under the sands, the statutes of 345 high priests, each the son of the preceding, making 345 generations since their “gods” had appeared in the Nile valley and marking a timeline extending back one-hundred-eighty centuries.
These ancient insights reveal that a sophisticated Egyptian civilization existed long prior to the last glacial period, and most importantly prior to the ‘Younger Dryas Boundary’ cataclysmic event as well. The ‘YDB’ event, which occurred circa 10,770 BC, is thought to have been caused by the impacts or air-bursts of several comets, resulting in massive shockwaves and firestorms sweeping across continents, initiating a 1200 year-long epoch of terminal environmental change and catastrophic faunal extinction, effectively wiping all but traces of early civilizations from the historical record.
