Chapter 206 - The secret of the sixth pearl: The depiction of the pyramids, obelisks and the Sphinx.

206,1. Raphael says: “Look at this, the sixth pearl here will answer your question! Here we have it fully revealed; what do you see when you first look at it?”

206,2. Marcus says: “Again I see the colossal image of Shivinz and some pyramids. In front of the most imposing of there are two pointed columns, called obelisks. At the side of the great pyramid, in reality perhaps a few hundred paces away from it – impossible to determine precisely from the engraving - there is again a quite colossal statue to be seen. It has the head and hands of a woman, as well as well defined female breasts. Where the chest ends at the stomach, the indistinct body of an animal begins. Behind this strange statue there is an extended circular wall enclosing the whole vast meadow. It appears to form a complete integral unit. - What does all this mean?” 03]Raphael says: “The colossal image with breasts represents the very same Shivinz, which the people, to honour their great benefactor, erected of their own initiative using the best stone-masons and builders and also at their own very considerable cost. The great pyramid with the two obelisks bore the teaching - ‘Man, know thyself!’. The interior had large chambers and long passages running in all directions, which contained all kinds of odd devices to facilitate self-knowledge and, as a result, a true appreciation of the supreme spirit of God. Sometimes theses devices looked quite gruesome but they very rarely missed the mark. The other pyramids are mainly only sign-posts to the underground places containing many sarcophagi, These were permanently walled off, as was explained earlier.

206,4. Built at that time, however, there are still many pyramids and all kind of temples along the exceedingly long Nile valleys, which were built very much later by the Pharaohs during the times of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. These are not recorded here, only those which were built under Shivinz’ rule.

206,5. Piramidai was the original ancient name and means: ‘Give me wisdom!’ and the two pointed columns called oubeloiska signify that ‘the pure seek to find the exalted, the beautiful and the pure’. ‘Belo’ actually means ‘white’ but, because the completely white colour signified for the ancient Egyptians ‘pure, exalted and beautiful’, its use was also intended to indicate ‘exaltation, purity and beauty’.

206,6. The positive influence of these schools soon became known over a wide area and foreigners began to attend them. There were so many strangers that they could not be accommodated and supplied with their needs. As a result our Shivinz, towards the end of his reign, hatched an ominous plan to keep the foreigners away and ensure that fewer of them would attend the schools he had established. But what was his method?

206,7. Here on this pearl you see the half-person, half-animal statue. It was hollow and inside it a man could climb a spiral staircase, enter the head and speak loudly and clearly through its funnel-shaped mouth, which was directed downwards. The strength of the voice was such that it seemed in all seriousness as if the colossal statue could talk.

206,8. Now when the foreigners came there to be accepted into the school, they were directed by a servant to stand, one by one, at a certain place in front of the statue, which was said to be dead on the outside but alive on the inside. Everyone who wanted to become a disciple of the pyramids received a puzzling question about life and death from the exalted Shivinz. If the visitor was able to solve the riddle he was to be accepted and then also allowed to ask the statue a counter-question. If the statue could not give him a satisfactory answer, the visitor was then allowed to destroy it and, so to speak, murder it.

206,9. The question was however given to each client three days earlier to ponder over. On the third day however, when they received the same question delivered by the mouth of the statue on pain of life and death, it is certain that nobody dared to reply. They all humbly withdrew, paid the fee required and travelled back to their often quite far distant homeland.

206,10. Some time later, as a myth has it, a Greek was successful in solving the old riddle; but for a hundred thousand others this is a fable which deserves no credibility! The famous riddle was solved in fact by Moses, who did not however destroy the statue as, although it is somewhat ravaged by the passage of time, it can still be seen today.

206,11. Of course, the interior design can no longer be inspected as is completely full of sand and mud because the Nile severely breaches its banks normally every hundred years but sometimes even after two centuries have elapsed. The result is that in the narrow canyons the waves rise more than thirty metres above the normal water level. Much land is laid to waste and made infertile as a huge amount of gravel, sand and mud is dumped on top of once beautiful pastures.

206,12. After the reign of Shivinz there were two Nile floods when waves covered the peaks of the pyramids. There was a similar flood, 870 years ago, when the temple of Ja bu sim bil was nearly half hidden in sand and silt with the result that it has since been impossible to cleanse it and some other memorials of all the sand and mud. The same is true of our puzzling statue; on the inside it is full of solidified mud and sand nobody can remove! So, my dear Marcus, that is the truth about the puzzling sphinx! - Are you now clear about it?”

206,13. Marcus says: “As the two thousand years passed, did nobody have the courage to allow the sphinx to ask him the prepared question at the risk of his life? If he were he to have been asked, what would have happened if he, quite understandably, could not solve the riddle?”

206,14. Raphael says: “At the spot where the applicant was standing, there was a pit into which he would quickly fall under the ground. Once at the bottom some servants would have taken him to the school by underground passageways as a reward for his bravery, even though he had not solved the riddle correctly. He would not then escape again until he had been perfected as a person. However, that never happened and at times when the riddle was solved, that ancient escape route silted and sanded up so that it became completely unserviceable. In any case the first shepherd kings and their peoples had long since been defeated by a Phoenician nation so that the pharaohs, even in the time of Abraham, were already Phoenicians.

206,15. No more about that. We shall now move on to the seventh and last pearl!”
