Portions of this conversation where televised on April 2, 2007 in Poland
Joanna Maro: "What are you searching for at Giza?"
Patrick Geryl: "There have been rumors for thousands of years about
an age-old time capsule hidden in the earth of Egypt, that has fired the
imagination of the general public. This capsule is supposed to be
infinitely more important than the treasures of Tutankhamen.
The reports are that the 'Hall of Records' has secret chambers filled
with technological tour de forces of a forgotten civilization that was
much older than the Egyptian one.
In other words: the quest for the spiritual and cultural origins of
civilization, and its true destiny"
Maro: "Why do you want to excavate it? What is your exact drive?"
Geryl: "The 'Circle of Gold' contains information through which the
pre- tidal wave civilization was able to calculate the exact day of the
previous polar reversal. That is to say, the moment when the North Pole
changed place with the South Pole, accompanied by a huge catastrophe.
The population was destroyed worldwide. For that reason they wanted to
preserve their discoveries for later generations.
"When we dig up this information it will have world-shocking
consequences. It will turn the complete archaeological world
upside-down. The present astronomers will be scared out of their wits.
Fifteen thousand years ago a civilization ruling on earth was able to
theoretically calculate the sunspot cycle, something our present sun
specialists are still not able to do! With the help of this, they knew
how to calculate exactly the date of the previous catastrophe. They
escaped to Egypt and South America, where they built a new culture. We
therefore have to take Noah's story literally."
Maro: "Can you give us a more detailed description of what you hope
to find in the 'Hall of Records'?"
Geryl: "The archives we can find there concern a civilization that
had the same background and culture as the Old Egyptians, as well as the
same laws, arts and diplomacy. And let's not forget the secret knowledge
hidden in their Holy Scriptures."
Maro: "What else can be found in this 'Circle of Gold'?"
Geryl: "Incredibly much more than is easily imaginable. In the
middle, there is a circle that depicts the Zodiac of Dendera. The twelve
star signs that are depicted are extremely large in size. The second
circle contains more complex things. Thirty-six elements are depicted in
it, through which they were able to calculate beforehand the previous
catastrophe. This was of vital importance. Without these calculations
nobody could have survived that catastrophe."
"Furthermore, we see depicted there Geb, the last ruler of Aha-Men-Ptah
(Atlantis), who died in the catastrophe. He is carrying on his head the
weight of the earth, which will be reborn through his wife Nut. She
managed to escape and together with the survivors, laid the foundations
of the new fatherland."
"Without a proper knowledge of this mingling of historical and
spiritual events you cannot properly reconstruct the history of Egypt.
The big Sphinx, for example, is depicted as a lion, because the previous
catastrophe took place in the Age of the Lion. On the Zodiac of Dendera
you can see the broken lines under the lion. These lines form the symbol
of a huge tidal wave."
"Furthermore, the 'Hall of Records' contains masses of hieroglyphs
about the Exodus, in which Horus and Isis play a main role. There are
also pictures that point to a new age, like those of Taurus and Aries.
Also an indescribable planetary sphere is present, containing an
immeasurable number of stars."
In short, the knowledge we can find there makes any other
archaeological discovery fade away. Hopefully, we don't have to wait
much longer for the discovery."
Maro: "Will you get part of the treasures?"
Geryl: "No, which is logical, by the way. They comprise a unique
inheritance that belongs to a museum. And the discovery alone will
invoke so much attention, that we will be able to cover the costs."
Maro: "How do you plan to actually start digging for the 'Hall of
Geryl: "First we have to wait on the results of the measures from our
Maro: "What sort of equipment is that?
Geryl: "The same that is used to search for hollow spaces. With the
aid of it we looked through the sand to a depth of at least fifty
Maro: "Do you think it lays there?"
Geryl: "In fact no. I think it is in the Labyrinth. This is about 100 kilometres from Giza. But my sponsor insisted to scan the Giza plateau
first. Thereafter we will scan the Labyrinth."
Maro: "Any results?"
Geryl: "Here they are."
A new sandstorm is brewing on the outskirts of the Egyptian desert:
newly released ground scans reveal that a team of Egyptian scientists
has identified potential locations of tunnels and caves - on par with
the controversial Hall of Records - in the immediate vicinity of the
pyramids and the Sphinx.
The pyramids of Gizeh are built on a limestone plateau, which means
that it has got the consistency of a cheese with lots of holes. Indeed,
one cave on the plateau was actually incorporated into the internal
layout of the pyramid - and may have contributed to why the Great
Pyramid, the only pyramid that has an elaborate structure in the pyramid
itself, has this unique internal structure.
It is therefore to be expected that elsewhere on the plateau, similar
cavities, if not long tunnels, exist. This makes for intriguing
possibilities, as some of these tunnels may have been used by the
ancient Egyptians - or that other tunnels or caves may have been
expanded, or new "halls" - such as the fabled Hall of Records -
In the 1990s, the so-called Osiris Shaft, located under the causeway
of Khafre, became the subject of immense speculation. Today, it is
believed that in ancient times, people used the water-filled shaft as a
swimming-hole. The shaft descends in several places to a depth of nearly
100 feet (35m) below the plateau. When Zahi Hawass investigated the
structure, the last level his team excavated was about 25m underground,
and was completely filled with water.
On almost regular intervals, the temperature as to what might lie
below the Gizeh plateau rises. Some years ago, Andrew Collins in "The
Gods of Eden" argued that an entire layout of the Duat was potentially
lying in wait of discovery underneath the plateau. It came at a time
when others were speaking about the fabled Hall of Records, which
according to some traditions would hold important relics of a bygone
age, often said to predate Egypt itself (read: Atlantis).
More recently, not so much pyramid fever, but cavity fever, has risen
again. Cavity fever has risen, if only because the groundwater in the
area is rising too, and this might endanger the monuments. In some
areas, flooding has already begun, caused by farming, urbanization and
residential housing near temples. Reda Mohamed el-Damak, director of the
Center of Studies and Designs for Water Projects at Cairo University's
Faculty of Engineering, states that groundwater is posing the most
serious threat to the Sphinx, carved from the bedrock of the Giza
Plateau, and situated at lower altitude than the pyramids, who sit on
the plateau, themselves. The latest measurement readings from the site
show that groundwater is only 4 meters deep under the Sphinx.
This means, of course, that any tunnel that goes deeper
than 4 meters around the area of the Sphinx, is now already under water.
Anything inside, unless watertight, will therefore already be destroyed,
if only because the water that is causing the problem is waste water.
This does not bode well for people searching for the Hall of Records
underneath this enigmatic monument.
Map showing the nine areas subjected to GPR
In bygone days, dynamite was the preferred archaeological tool;
today, only non-destructive methods are allowed and preservation is
valued so much more than exploration. Of course, trying to find out what
lies beneath without using a spade, is not an easy task.
Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) made its introduction in the 1970s,
and has been used on the Gizeh plateau since the 1980s. In 1987,
Yoshimura and Tonauchi used GPR to scan the inner structure of the Great
Pyramid, the constitution of the Sphinx and to determine the age/era
during which the Sphinx was used.
More recently, in 1998, Abbas Mohamed Abbas was asked to study how
best to restore the Sphinx and its protection against groundwater
penetration. But now, Abbas has been involved in a series of exploration
work, rather than preservation.
In February 2006, Abbas returned to the Gizeh plateau with GPR
technology, this time to 'investigate deep-wide parts of the plateau to
reveal any hidden shafts or tunnels throughout the studied sectors."
Nine areas of potential interest had been identified, which Abbas and
his team subjected to a series of detailed scans.
Abbas' survey came about after Andrzej Wojcikiewicz contacted Belgian
author Patrick Geryl in 2003, after reading the Polish edition of "The
Orion Prophecy". In 2005, a team convened by Wojcikiewicz and including
Geryl went to Egypt. The Polish team identified a series of locations,
for which Abbas asked permission with the Department of Antiquities to
scan parts of the Gizeh plateau - a project paid for by the Polish
In his report of his finding, appearing in NRIAG Journal of
Geophysics, Abbas states that "the results of the survey support the
possibility of the presence of undisclosed relics, of high value". These
are powerful claims to make and they do go beyond the available
evidence, which "merely" points out the presence of subterranean
The report states that they have identified two likely caves and one
possible shaft, filled in with clays or sandy clays, one located close
to the southern side of Khufu's pyramid, the second around the causeway
of Khafre's pyramid. Other features "of less mass" have been delineated
close to the eastern side of Khafre's pyramid and - no doubt of interest
to some alternative historians - close to the entrance door to the
northern side of the Sphinx.
GPR profile of cave-like phenomena in area 1 and area
Abbas and colleagues state that the cavities are at a fairly deep
level, ranging from 12 to 25 metres below the surface, which is, of
course, conform to e.g. the Osiris Shaft. Abbas also states that "The
cave-like features could be ascribed to a tunnel section of at least 3
to 5 m width [...] it is like a void in the limestone rock." They
conclude: "we can presume the existence of a momentous diversity of
archaeological structures at the Pyramids plateau which remain, as yet,
unexposed. These structures could be a linked net of tunnels and shafts
that may well lead to precious tombs."
It is an enigmatic statement to make, and is either Abbas' wording to
guarantee that future funding is received, or that he has additional
data, not included in the report, that warrants his optimism. Since the
completion of the survey, and the report, the Polish team has asked for
permission to excavate at the Gizeh plateau in those areas where the
ground scans have revealed cavities. So far, these proposals have been
