Rogue Egyptologist John Anthony West shared theories, evidence, and
interpretation regarding the Sphinx and the pyramids at Giza. It's "deep
heresy" to today's scientific establishment that an ancient civilization had
skills that surpass our own-- yet that is what they must have had to make
these awe-inspiring structures, he argued.
Visiting the Sphinx in-person gave West a sense of "unspeakable antiquity" and
pride that human beings had made such a monument. It's meant to signal an
"ingress to the Age of Leo," and the last one occurred 10,500 BC, though he
believes the Sphinx might have been constructed in the earlier age of Leo
which took place at 36,500 BC. Edgar Cayce predicted that a Hall of Records
would be found at the base of the Sphinx, and West shared that a cavern under
bedrock has been detected by seismograph under the left paw. It appears to be
a rectangular shape approximately 36 X 45 feet.
He explored various theories as to how these structures were built:
They used a technology we don't recognize, which could be hidden in a
They employed a "soft" technology such as music or sound.
The work was performed by people in a heightened state of consciousness.
Beyond issues of how and when these grand structures were made, West stressed
their religious importance in reconnecting humankind with divine

John Anthony West is a writer, scholar and Pythagorean, born in New York City.
He is the author of The Traveler's Key to Ancient Egypt, and consulting editor
for the Traveler's Key series. His previous book, Serpent in the Sky: The
High Wisdom of Ancient Egypt is an exhaustive study of the revolutionary
Egyptological work of the French mathematician and Orientalist, the late R.A.
Schwaller de Lubicz.
In The Case for Astrology, John Anthony West presents compelling new evidence
that proves the astrological premise: that correlations exist between events in
the sky and on earth, and that correspondences exist between the human
personality and the positions of the planets at birth.
Mr. West has published a novel and many short stories; his plays have been
produced on stage, television and radio, and he writes articles, essays and
criticism for The New York Times Book Review, Conde Nast's Traveler and other
general interest and specialized newspapers and magazines in America and abroad.
He won an EMMY Award for his 1993 NBC Special Documentary The Mystery of the
Sphinx, hosted by Charlton Heston.
The ancient Egyptians themselves attributed their wisdom to an earlier age going
back 36,000 years. West set out to test the hypothesis that the Sphinx was much
older than its conventional date of 2500 BC. His findings provide the first hard
evidence that an earlier age of civilization preceded the known development of
civilization in the Nile valley.
John Anthony West is today the leading authority and proponent of the
'Symbolist' school of Egyptology, an alternative interpretation of ancient
Egyptian culture advanced by the French scholar and philosopher, R.A. Schwaller
de Lubicz (1891-1962). In the Symbolist view, Egyptian architecture and art
disclose a richer and more universal wisdom than conventional Egyptology has
Mr. West lectures extensively on Egypt and personally leads several in-depth
study tours to Egypt every year.
