The sun cross
The pyramids have mystified travellers since they emerged from the jungle:
They are positioned west of Cairo and aligned with true north. Despite their antiquity, there is not a single hieroglyph on any of the structures—implying that they were built before dynastic Egypt. It also suggests that the secrets of these sonic temples were conveyed in their mathematical ratios—the purest language in the universe. Today we would call them “darkness retreats”.
Pictured above is the geometrical design the Giza Necropolis is based on. We can even reproduce it from memory because it looks like a sun cross. This is the stereographic projection of the rhombicuboctahedron:
Informing the figure above is the “broken sun cross” or swastika below. This chiral shape is a symbol of the vernal sun. The swastika comes from the Sanskrit meaning “conducive to well being” or “auspicious”. As an asymmetrical indicator of life, it has a vivifying role in the reformation of the universe—it represents the creative principle of the cosmos implied by a mandala:
The swastika also symbolises the cosmos, representing the spinning constellations of the celestial north pole. This is the rotational movement around a centre or immutable axis (axis mundi) designed by the Great Architect of the Universe. This spiral is anticlockwise (feminine) and represents Isis:
Above: the precessional north celestial pole
If we revisit the Hermetic phrase “as within, so without” then we are reminded that the shape of a cross on the ground is also a stereographic projection of an element. If we accept that the sun cross implies the iron cross, then the element we wish to investigate is naturally Fe:
The stereographic projection of the alpha iron (α) appears below and we can place the apexes of the three pyramids upon it:
The stereographic projection interprets time as space. So the design of Giza hints at the orbits of the planets, the alpha iron and the path of the Sun. In other words, Giza acknowledges the blueprint of the solar system writ large in the desert. It implies that the Egyptians knew that our spatial universe was like a shadow of the hyperspatial cosmos—the solar system as the sun cross as the rhombicuboctahedron.
