“The Last Days of Tolemac” is a book about prophecy. It deals with events that are happening in the world today and shows how they fulfill prophecies that were made many centuries ago. The book is set out in a series of questions and answers, and explains in detail:
- What is about to happen to our planet
- Why these events are happening at this time
- What places on earth will be affected
- What the new world will be like
- What we can do to prepare
As the book explains, our world is about to be transformed. We are about to experience “a new heaven and a new earth” where there will be no more suffering and no more pain. However all of us are faced with a choice. Do we wish to inherit the new world that is coming? Or will we fall victim to the catastrophes that will herald its arrival? What we need to do to survive is explained in the pages of this book.
For the information of readers, The Last Days of Tolemac is now available on Kindle Books as a Digital Download, as well as Allan’s major work entitled The Cosmic Web.
The Cosmic Web deals with the mysteries of life, and shows how we all have within us hidden powers that will transform our lives in the coming age. Many of the stories that appear on this Blog, as well as articles on esoteric aspects of life, have been taken from this book. And as usual with Kindle books, if you click on the cover of either book, you can read part of the contents for free.

Throughout history certain men and women have acquired fame, or notoriety, by claiming to be able to predict future events. This has especially been true within religious faiths, where certain individuals have been regarded as divinely inspired, and their predictions have been accepted as the ordained will of God.
And throughout the ages, men and women of every generation have sought to know the future in the hope that, by so doing, they might gain some temporal advantage over others. As it was in the past, so is this true of the times in which we live today.
But does prophecy matter? Is it wise, or even possible, to know the path of future events? There are those who believe that life unfolds according to forces which can never be understood, and that any attempt to do so is sheer folly. They are content to take each day as it comes.
But prophecy is not simple prediction, and those who claim to be moved by prophetic impulse do not do so merely to inform. All true prophecy stands as a warning. And those who study and learn from these warnings may not only become guardians of wisdom – they may in time become beacons for the transformation of society.
Perhaps nowhere has this prophetic impulse been more evident than in Judaism. Of all the major religions of the world, the unique feature of the Jewish religion has been the extraordinary sequence of prophets that have illuminated the early history of the Jews.
This sequence can be considered to have begun with the prophet Elijah (also called Elias), who lived during the reign of Ahab in the Northern Kingdom of Israel, in the 9th century before the birth of Christ.
It continued in the Northern Kingdom with such prophets as Elisha, Amos and Jonah, and ended with the prophet Hosea who lived during the reign of Jereboam II, who ruled the ancient kingdom of Israel from 793 BC to 753 BC.
In the Southern Kingdom of Judah, this lineage began with the prophets Obadiah, Joel and Isaiah in the 9th century BC, and continued with Micah, Jeremiah, Zephaniah, Huldah, Nahum and Habakkuk in the 8th century BC.
Following their conquest by Nebuchadnezzar and subsequent exile in Babylon during the 6th century BC, the prophet Ezekiel rose to prominence, as well as Daniel, who lives on through the Biblical story of his imprisonment in a den of lions.
Even after the decree by Cyrus the Great in 538 BC that allowed the Jews to return to Jerusalem, this sequence of prophetic figures continued through men like Haggai and Zechariah, before culminating with Malachi, who prophesied around the year 420 BC.
The role of these prophets within Judaism was to act as guardians of the Jewish faith, and monitors of the Torah, or the laws of God as revealed to Moses, and recorded in the first five books of the Hebrew scriptures.
However, they also became famous for their ability to interpret omens and dreams, and to predict future events. And it is in this area of prediction that the Old Testament prophets have assumed such prominence in the modern world, because what they predicted directly affects every person alive today.
One of the most striking features of the prophecies recorded in the Old Testament, is their repeated references to events that were predicted to occur at the end of the present age. They referred to these times as the “Latter Days” or “End of Days”, leading up to the return of the Messiah.
In referring to these “Latter Days”, these prophets wrote about one event in particular. They called this event “The Day of the Lord”, or even “The Great and Terrible Day of the Lord”. And this became a recurring theme of prophecy down the centuries, as we can see from the following examples:
In the Book of Joel:
“The earth shall quake before them; the heavens shall tremble: the sun and the moon shall be dark, and the stars shall withdraw their shining.” (Joel 2:10)
“And I will shew wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke. The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and terrible day of the Lord come.” (Joel 2: 30-31)
In the Book of Amos:
“Ye who turn judgment to wormwood, and leave off righteousness in the earth. Seek him that maketh the seven stars and Orion, and turneth the shadow of death into the morning, and maketh the day dark with night: that calleth for the waters of the sea, and poureth them out upon the face of the earth.” (Amos 5: 7-8)
In the Book of Nahum:
“He rebuketh the sea, and maketh it dry, and drieth up all the rivers: Bashan languisheth, and Carmel, and the flower of Lebanon languisheth. The mountains quake at him, and the hills melt, and the earth is burned at his presence, yea, the world, and all that dwell therein.”
“Who can stand before his indignation? And who can abide in the fierceness of his anger? His fury is poured out like fire, and the rocks are thrown down by him.” (Nahum 1: 4-6)
In the Book of Habakkuk:
“And the Lord answered me, and said, write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it. For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.” (Habakkuk 2: 2-3)
“Before him went the pestilence, and burning coals went forth at his feet. He stood, and measured the earth: he beheld, and drove asunder the nations; and the everlasting mountains were scattered, the perpetual hills did bow: his ways are everlasting.” (Habakkuk 3: 5-6)
In the Book of Ezekiel:
“Surely in that day there shall be a great shaking in the land of Israel; So that the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the heaven, and the beasts of the field, and all creeping things that creep upon the earth, and all the men that are upon the face of the earth, shall shake at my presence, and the mountains shall be thrown down, and the steep places shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground.”
“And I will call for a sword against him throughout all my mountains, saith the Lord God: every man’s sword shall be against his brother. And I will plead against him with pestilence and with blood; and I will rain upon him, and upon his bands, and upon the many people that are with him, an overflowing rain, and great hailstones, fire, and brimstone.” (Ezekiel 38: 19-22)
In the Book of Haggai:
“For thus saith the Lord of hosts; Yet once, it is a little while, and I will shake the heavens, and the earth, and the sea, and the dry land; And I will shake all nations, and the desire of all nations shall come.” (Haggai 2: 6-7)
In the book of Malachi:
“For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the Lord of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch.” (Malachi 4: 1)
This theme of blood, hailstones, brimstone and fire raining down upon the earth from the skies can be found in the New Testament as well. When the disciples asked Jesus about the signs that would precede his return to earth, Jesus said:
“And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.” (Luke 21:25-26)
It is clear that this “Day of the Lord” will be a day unlike any that those who are alive today will ever have experienced. While hundreds of millions of people have been afflicted by local or regional disasters, none of us have ever had to deal with a global catastrophe of the kind described by Jesus and the prophets.
The obvious question that arises from these Biblical passages is what sort of event would cause the heavens to shake, as well as the earth, the sea and the dry land? And what type of event would cause men’s hearts to fail them with fear?
In his Book of Revelation, St. John described a series of visions which appeared to him while he was in exile on the island of Patmos. And these visions portrayed events which would definitely be guaranteed to make even the sturdiest heart quake. As he wrote:
“And I saw the seven angels which stood before God; and to them were given seven trumpets.” (Revelation 8:2)
John went on to describe what would happen when the first angel sounded his trumpet.
“The first angel sounded, and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood, and they were cast upon the earth: and the third part of trees was burnt up, and all the green grass was burnt up.” (Revelation 8:7)
Let us suppose, for example, that a large comet was to emerge from deep space and enter our solar system. It would then be drawn toward the sun by the force of gravity. As it did so, it would develop a trail of dust particles that would travel behind the nucleus of the comet.
However, once it had reached its perihelion or closest approach to the sun, the tail of the comet would now travel in front of the nucleus of the comet, due to the pressure of the solar wind generated by the sun. As any astronomer will confirm, comet tails always point away from the sun.
And if by chance, as it passed around the sun and began its journey back into space, the path of this comet should happen to cross the orbit of the earth, then the earth would first be exposed to the dust particles in the tail of the comet.
And if this comet happened to have a nucleus composed of significant amounts of iron, then the dust particles in the tail of the comet would be coloured red. And then as this comet drew closer, it would shower the surface of the earth with enormous quantities of red dust.
If these red dust particles should happen to fall upon bodies of water, such as lakes or seas, they would become discoloured, causing the water to look like blood. This contaminated water would not only become thick and muddy, but would prove toxic to anyone who tried to drink it.
As the comet drew closer to the earth, the fine dust particles in its tail would give way to larger particles. When these gravel-sized particles reached the outer atmosphere of the earth, they would become white hot with friction, and become fiery meteorites that would look like “hail and fire mingled with blood”.
This fiery hail would devastate the entire surface of the planet. It would not only set fire to the grassy plains, but would burn up entire forests as well. The damage caused by this shower of incandescent meteorites could easily cause “a third part of them to be burnt up”.
Then, according to St. John, the second trumpet of the Book of Revelation will sound.
“And the second angel sounded, and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea: and the third part of the sea became blood; and the third part of the creatures which were in the sea, and had life, died; and the third part of the ships were destroyed.” (Revelation: 8:8-9)
If a large rock emanating from the tail of the comet entered the atmosphere of the earth and plunged into the sea, the destruction caused by this impact would be catastrophic.
The impact of this collision would not only vaporize the asteroid itself, it would also penetrate the ocean floor causing huge amounts of superheated water, molten rock and other matter to rise high into the upper atmosphere.
This superheated material would then fall back down to earth in the form of blazing missiles that would set fire to buildings, forests and crops around the entire planet.
Volcanoes would suddenly roar back to life, spewing vast clouds of debris into the atmosphere, adding to the hellish conditions. Forest fires would also create enormous noxious fumes that would stain the sky and cause the moon to appear “blood-red” in colour.
In addition to setting off a series of gigantic earthquakes around the world, the impact of this asteroid would also cause a rupture of undersea fault lines that would generate colossal tidal waves that would travel around the world, causing immense destruction to coastal cities everywhere.
The death toll caused by a disaster of this magnitude would be beyond count, as would the damage to cities, ships and cargo. This devastation could easily kill “a third part of the creatures in the sea”, as well as destroy “a third part” of all the ships in the sea.
Then, according to St. John, the third angel would sound his trumpet.
“And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters;
“And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter.” (Revelation 8: 10-11)
St. John describes this comet as a “star” that appears in the skies of earth “burning as it were a lamp”. And because of its bitter nature and poisonous contamination of rivers, lakes and reservoirs, just like the wormwood plant, he refers to the asteroid as “Wormwood”.
“And the fourth angel sounded, and the third part of the of the sun was smitten, and the third part of the moon, and the third part of the stars; so as the third part of them was darkened, and the day shone not for a third part of it, and the night likewise.” (Revelation 8: 12)
As the nucleus or head of the comet makes its closest approach to the earth the enormous dust cloud that surrounds it will blot out the sun, the moon and the stars for a period of three days and three nights. There is an interesting parallel here with the plagues at the time of Moses and the three days of darkness that descended upon Egypt.
“And the Lord said unto Moses, stretch out thine hand toward heaven, that there may be darkness over the land of Egypt, even darkness which may be felt. And Moses stretched forth his hand toward heaven: and there was a thick darkness in all the land of Egypt three days.” (Exodus 10:20-22)
If the visions described by St. John should happen to come to pass, then the cataclysmic events that would occur when this comet appears in the skies of earth will truly cause men’s hearts to quake with fear.
The continents themselves would be changed, as new lands rose out of the ocean, while others were swallowed up by the sea. New mountain ranges would be created. It would be like the time of Moses when “the sea fled”, “the mountains skipped like rams, and the little hills like lambs”.
“When Israel went out of Egypt,
The house of Jacob from a people of strange language;
Judah was his sanctuary, and Israel his dominion.
The sea saw it and fled: Jordan was driven back.
The mountains skipped like rams, and the little hills like lambs.”
(Psalm 114: 1-4)
In short, the day this comet makes its closest approach to the earth will be “The Great and Terrible Day of the Lord” predicted by the prophet Joel, and described by Zephaniah in the 7th century BC in following words:
“The great day of the Lord is near, it is near, and hasteth greatly, even the voice of the day of the Lord: the mighty man shall cry there bitterly.
“That day is a day of wrath, a day of trouble and distress, a day of wasteness and desolation, a day of darkness and gloominess, a day of clouds and thick darkness, a day of the trumpet and alarm against the fenced cities, and against the high towers.” (Zephaniah 1: 14-16)
In his book titled A Search in Secret Egypt, published in 1936 under the pen name Paul Brunton, the British spiritualist Raphael Hurst described how he had spent an entire night engaged in meditation in front of the giant Sphinx carved out of the Giza plateau.
With the insight gained from the visionary experiences that were described in the previous instalment, Hurst then turned his attention to the adjoining pyramid. As he commented in his book, he was motivated by an unusual feature of ancient Egyptian architecture.
“That the Sphinx conceals some architectural secret and hides some mystery cut in stone is equally suggested by a curious fact. In every other part of Egypt small copies of the Sphinx were set up before their respective temples, as guardians and protectors of the threshold, or else lions were figured protectively at the gates of the temples.
“Where, then, is the real temple of the Sphinx?
“I raised my head a little and looked behind the statue. And I saw, from the angle where I was sitting, looming up in the early morning light, lifting its truncated apex to the sky, the world’s largest building, the world’s insoluble stone riddle, the world’s first wonder to the Greeks as to us, that enigma of the ancients which continues to puzzle the moderns, the fit friend of the Sphinx.
“The Great Pyramid!
“Both, built in Atlantean times, stand as distinctive marks of the mysterious continent, and remain as mute legacies from a race of people who have departed as mysteriously as their own land. Both remind the successors of the Atlanteans of the glories of that lost civilization.”
It was then that Hurst conceived an even more ambitious plan. He decided that he would try and persuade the Egyptian authorities to allow him to spend an entire night locked up alone inside the Great Pyramid. Hardly surprisingly, his initial overtures were immediately rebuffed. As he wrote:
“I had discovered that, although the public could always approach it, the Great Pyramid was not public property. It belonged to the Government of Egypt. One could no more walk into it and spend an unconventional night inside any of its rooms than one could walk into any strange man’s house and spend a night inside his best bedroom.
“Had I asked for permission to fly to the moon, the face of the official who listened to me could not have betrayed more utter stupefaction.
“I have never had such a request before. I do not think it is within my power to grant it. He sent me to another and higher official of the same Department. “Impossible!” declared the second official kindly but firmly, thinking he had before him a tame lunatic.
“The thing is unheard of. I regret… his voice trailed off, the while he shrugged his shoulders. He rose from his chair to bow me out of the room.
“It was then that my journalistic and editorial training, lulled for several years but not dead, rose rebelliously into action. I began to argue with him, persisted in repeating my request in other ways, and refused to budge from the room.
“He got rid of me, finally, by saying that the matter did not come within the jurisdiction of the Antiquities Department. Within whose jurisdiction did it come, then, I enquired. He was not quite sure but thought I had better apply to the Police. At Police Headquarters I discovered a Permit Section.
“For the third time I begged to be allowed to spend one night inside the Pyramid. The official did not know what to do with me so he sent me to his chief. The latter wanted a little time to consider the matter. When I returned next day he referred me to the Department of Antiquities!
“I went home in momentary despair of ever achieving my objective. My next move was to secure an interview with the genial Commandant of the Cairo City Police. I walked out of his office with a written authority, which requested the police chief of the area in which the Pyramid was situated to give me all the assistance necessary to achieve my purpose.
“A station constable was detailed to accompany me as far as the Pyramid, and to give instructions to the armed policeman who is placed outside the building to guard it at night.”
Once the Police constable had locked the iron grille securely behind him, Raphael Hurst made his way carefully down what he described as “a long, low, steep, narrow and slippery corridor“, armed with a strong flashlight to penetrate the darkness that enveloped him.
Although his stated purpose was to spend the night inside the King’s Chamber, he began his sojourn with an examination of the underground region of the Pyramid. Following this, he crawled back up the steep passage until he reached the level corridor that led to the Queen’s Chamber.
Diagram of the Queen’s Chamber showing Air Vents
Once inside this Chamber, he examined the two ventilating shafts which slanted upwards on either side. Modern Egyptologists groomed in the conventional theory that the Pyramid was built to contain the funerary remains of Pharaoh Khafre, naturally dispute the idea that these shafts are air vents. But as Hurst explains:
“Here was clear proof that the room had never been a tomb, but was intended to be used. Many have been puzzled by the circumstance of the discovery of these shafts, in 1872, when it was found that they stopped five inches short of the Chamber itself and apparently were not originally cut right through the walls.
“In their discovered state, therefore, they could not admit air; so it is thought that they had some other and unknown use. But the best explanation is that the time came when they had served their purpose and, like the rest of the upper passages of the Pyramid, were completely sealed at their orifices by new stone blocks”.
Hurst then rested for awhile before continuing on up the Grand Gallery which led to the King’s Chamber. As he wrote:
“A few paces forward through the Antechamber, a forced stoop under the granite block which hangs down from grooved side-walls, and which bars the exit of this horizontal corridor, and I had reached the most important room in the Pyramid, the famous King’s Chamber”.
Once inside, he found a dislodged block of stone that served as a suitable place to sit down, and proceeded to settle in for the long night that lay ahead. Alongside, he placed various items that he had brought with him, including “a thermos flask with hot tea, a couple of bottles of iced water, a notebook and my Parker pen“.
Air Shafts in the King’s Chamber
As he looked around, he noticed that the King’s Chamber also contained a pair of air vents about nine inches square. Then, satisfied that all was in order, he took one last look at the empty marble sarcophagus alongside of him, and switched off his flashlight. He later described what followed.
“The effects of the three-day fast which I had undertaken in order to increase my sensitivity, now showed themselves in growing chilliness. Cold air was creeping into the King’s Chamber through the narrow ventilation shafts, and then creeping past the thin barrier of my light garment.
“My chilled flesh began to shiver under its thin shirt. I got up and dressed myself in the jacket which I had put off only a few hours before on account of the intense heat. Such is Eastern life at certain times of the year – tropical heat by day and a heavy fall of temperature by night.
“To this day no one has discovered the mouths of these air channels on the outside of the Pyramid, although the approximate area of their positions is known. Some Egyptologists have even doubted whether the channels were ever carried right through to the outside, but the complete chilling of the air during my experience finally settles the point.
“The minutes slowly dragged themselves along, the while I slowly “sensed” that the King’s Chamber possessed a very strong atmosphere of its own, an atmosphere which I can only call “psychic”.
“For I had deliberately made myself receptive in mind, passive in feeling and negative in attitude, so that I might become a perfect register of whatever super-physical event might transpire.
“I do not know how long a period elapsed before I became conscious of a new presence in the chamber, of someone friendly and benevolent who stood at the entrance and looked down upon me with kindly eyes.
“With his arrival the atmosphere changed completely – and changed for the better. Something clean and sane had come with him. A new element began to play upon my overwrought sensitive being, soothing and calming it.
“He approached my stony seat, and I saw that he was followed by another figure. Both halted at my side and regarded me with grave looks, pregnant with prophetic meaning. I felt that some momentous hour of my life was at hand.
“They stood motionless as statues, regarding me, their hands crossed upon their breasts, remaining absolutely silent. Was I functioning in some fourth dimension, aware and awake in some far-off epoch of the past? Had my sense of time regressed to the early days of Egypt?
“No; that could not be, for I perceived quickly that these two could see me and even now were about to address me. Their tall figures bent forward; the lips of one spirit seemed to move, his face close to mine, his eyes flashing spiritual fire, and his voice sounding in my ear.
“Know, my son, that in this Ancient fane lies the lost record of the early races of man and or the Covenant which they made with their Creator through the first of His great prophets. Know, too, that chosen men were brought here of old to be shown this Covenant that they might return to their fellows and keep the great secret alive.
“Take back with thee the warning that when men forsake their Creator and look on their fellows with hate, as with the princes of Atlantis in whose time this Pyramid was built, they are destroyed by the weight of their own iniquity, even as the people of Atlantis were destroyed.
“It was not the Creator who sank Atlantis, but the selfishness, the cruelty, the spiritual blindness of the people who dwelt on those doomed islands. The Creator loves all; but the lives of men are governed by invisible laws which He has set over them. Take back this warning, then.
Interior of the King’s Chamber showing the empty Sarcophagus
“There surged up in me a great desire to see this mysterious Covenant and the spirit must have read my thought, for he quickly said:”To all things there is an hour. Not yet, my son, not yet.” I was disappointed.
“He looked at me for a few seconds.”No man of thy people hath yet been permitted to behold such a thing, but because thou art a man versed in these things, and hast come among us bearing goodwill and understanding in thy heart, some satisfaction thou shalt have. Come with me!
“And then a strange thing happened. I seemed to fall into a kind of semi-coma, my consciousness was momentarily blotted out, and the next thing I knew was that I had been transported to another place.
“I found myself in a long passage which was softly lit, although no lamp or window was visible: I fancied that the illuminant was none other than the halo-like emanation around my companion combined with the radiation from the luminous vibrant cord of ether which extended behind me, yet I realized that these would not sufficiently explain it.
“The walls were built up with a glowing pinkish terra-cotta coloured stone, slabbed with the thinnest of joints. The floor sloped downwards at precisely the same angle as the Pyramid entrance itself descends.
“The masonry was well finished. The passage was square and fairly low, but not uncomfortably so. I could not find the source of its mysterious illuminant, yet the interior was bright as though a lamp were playing on it.
“The High Priest bade me follow him a little way down the passage. “Look not backwards” he warned me, “nor turn thy head.”
“We passed some distance down the incline and I saw a large temple-like chamber opening out of the farther end. I knew perfectly well that I was inside or below the Pyramid, but I had never seen such a passage or chamber before. Evidently they were secret and had defied discovery until this day.
“I could not help feeling tremendously excited about this startling find, and an equally tremendous curiosity seized me as to where and what the entrance was.
“Finally, I had to turn my head and take a swift look backwards at what I hoped was the secret door. I had entered the place by no visible entrance, but at the farther end I saw that what should have been an opening was closed with square blocks and apparently cemented.
“I found myself gazing at a blank wall; then, as swiftly, whirled away by some irresistible force until the whole scene was blotted out and I had floated off into space again.
“I heard the words: “Not yet, not yet” repeated as in an echo and a few moments later saw my inert unconscious body lying on the stone.
“My son” came a murmur from the High Priest, “it matters not whether thou discoverest the door or not. Find but the secret passage within the mind that will lead thee to the hidden chamber within thine own soul, and thou shalt have found something worthy indeed.
“The mystery of the Great Pyramid is the mystery of thine own self. The secret chambers and ancient records are all contained in thine own nature.
“The lesson of the Pyramid is that man must turn inward, must venture to the unknown centre of his being to find his soul, even as he must venture to the unknown depths of this fane to find its profoundest secret. Farewell!”
Raphael Hurst’s experiences during his sojourn inside the Great Pyramid of Giza, speak to an entirely new interpretation of the meaning and purpose of the Pyramid and the Sphinx, than that currently held by modern scholars and Egyptologists.
Lacking any physical proof that would validate such esoteric accounts as those described by Hurst, they prefer to cling to their conventional belief that both the Sphinx and the Great Pyramid were built during the reign of the Pharaoh Khafre.
Yet there are other sources which point to the accuracy of the explanation given by Hurst, such as the American mystic Edgar Cayce, popularly known as the “sleeping prophet”. Cayce gave several readings in which he referred to an ancient “Hall of Records” that lay buried beneath the Sphinx.
When asked during one of his trance readings in 1933 what this secret chamber contained, Cayce replied :
“A record of Atlantis from the beginning of those periods when the Spirit took form, or began the encasements in that land; and the developments of the peoples throughout their sojourn; together with the record of the first destruction, and the changes that took place in the land;
“With the record of the sojournings of the peoples and their varied activities in other lands, and a record of the meetings of all the nations or lands, for the activities in the destruction of Atlantis; and the building of the pyramid of initiation, together with whom, what, and where the opening of the records would come, that are as copies from the sunken Atlantis.
“For with the change, it [Atlantis] must rise again. In position, this lies – as the sun rises from the waters – as the line of the shadows (or light) falls between the paws of the Sphinx; that was set later as the sentinel or guard and which may not be entered from the connecting chambers from the Sphinx’s right paw until the time has been fulfilled when the changes must be active in this sphere of man’s experience. Then [it lies] between the Sphinx and the river.” [378-16; Oct 29, 1933]
This was not the only occasion on which Cayce talked about the legendary continent of Atlantis, as well as the “Hall of Records” that lay buried beneath the Sphinx. The following extracts are taken from other readings which he gave in later years.
“It would be well if this entity were to seek either of the three phases of the ways and means in which those records of the activities of individuals were preserved – the one in the Atlantean land, that sank, which will rise and is rising again; another in the place of the records that leadeth from the Sphinx to the hall of records, in the Egyptian land; and another in the Aryan or Yucatan land, where the temple there is overshadowing same.” [2012-1; Sep 25, 1939]
“… the entity joined with those who were active in putting the records in forms that were partially of the old characters of the ancient or early Egyptian, and part in the newer form of the Atlanteans. These may be found, especially when the house or tomb of records is opened, in a few years from now”. [2537-1; Jul 17, 1941]
“… the entity was among the first to set the records that are yet to be discovered or yet to be had of those activities in the Atlantean land, and for the preservation of data that is yet to be found from the chambers of the way between the Sphinx and the pyramid of records”. [3575-2; Jan 20, 1944. Excerpts from Cayce, Edgar. On Atlantis. New York: Warner Books, 1968.]
It may be significant that Cayce predicted that this “Hall of Records” may not be entered from the connecting chambers from the Sphinx’s right paw until the time has been fulfilled. Certainly there has been no shortage of people who have tried to find this hidden chamber over the years.
Yet for one reason or another, whether the result of equipment failure or obstructions due to bureaucratic red tape, all efforts to do so have thus far proved fruitless. It does seem as if the time is not yet ripe, and that we will have to wait until this time of destiny is fulfilled.
It is perhaps appropriate to end here with the words of the Oracle of Tolemac, who said that similar world-wide catastrophes that caused this ancient wisdom to be hidden in the distant past, would return to permit these buried records to be rediscovered at the dawn of the new Golden Age.
“Various seers and prophets have predicted that the ancient records of Atlantis would be found in Egypt. The American seer Edgar Cayce predicted that a “Hall of Records” would be found beneath the Sphinx. Inside this hall of records would be found tablets, artifacts and gold related to the lost civilization of Atlantis”.
He predicted that these records would also include a detailed history of human life on earth.
“Knowledge and wisdom will make great advances in the coming age. The true history of your planet will be revealed at last. Those same disasters that once caused your earlier libraries and treasures to be hidden will now cause them to be revealed. The lost records of Atlantis and Lemuria will be rediscovered.” (The Last Days of Tolemac)
Some fourteen hundred years before the birth of Christ, a young Egyptian prince embarked on a hunting expedition on the west bank of the river Nile. Stopping to rest from his exertions, he soon fell asleep in the shadow of a giant stone head that was buried up to its neck in sand.
While he was asleep, he had an unusual dream. He dreamed that the stone head began to speak to him, saying that it was choking from the sand that surrounded it. It went on to say that if the young prince was able to clear away the sand, he would become the next Pharaoh.
This young prince went on to become Thutmose IV, the 8th Pharaoh of the 18th Dynasty, and ruler of the Kingdoms of both Upper and Lower Egypt. But his most celebrated accomplishment, for which he is remembered to this day, was the excavation and restoration of the Sphinx at Giza.
The Dream Stela erected by Thutmose IV between the two front paws of the Sphinx
In fact he went further. He placed a carved granite tablet between the two front paws of the Sphinx, on which was inscribed the story of his dream. This tablet, or Stela, which came to be known as the Dream Stela, can still be seen in front of the Sphinx today.
Despite the fact that for most of its existence the Sphinx has been almost completely buried in sand, it has still suffered greatly from the ravages of time. In fact, the nature and extent of its eroded flanks has sparked heated debate among scholars over the true age and history of the Sphinx.
Although early Egyptologists were unable to find conclusive evidence of the origin and purpose of the Sphinx, the consensus view among modern scholars is that it was built around 4,500 years ago by the Pharaoh Khafre, who is also believed to have built the second of the three great pyramids at Giza.
They base this view on the fact that the surrounding temples and funerary complex at Giza display the same architectural style as that attributed to Khafre, and the fact that a small Diorite statue of Khafre was discovered in the debris found at the Valley Temple nearby.
However, as the Egyptian scholar Selim Hassan, who spent much of his career supervising the excavation of many ancient Egyptian tombs during the early part of the 20th century, noted in his book The Sphinx: Its History in the Light of Recent Excavations, published in 1949:
“Taking all things into consideration, it seems that we must give the credit of erecting this, the world’s most wonderful statue, to Khafre, but always with this reservation:
“That there is not one single contemporary inscription which connects the Sphinx with Khafre; so, sound as it may appear, we must treat the evidence as circumstantial, until such time as a lucky turn of the spade of the excavator will reveal to the world a definite reference to the erection of the Sphinx”.
Even the Dream Stela erected by Thutmose IV has not clarified the matter. For when the Stela was first discovered, much of the lower portion of the stone tablet had eroded away completely. Of those lines that could still be read, there was an incomplete line that made reference to the word Khaf.
It was this line that led Egyptologist Thomas Young to speculate that the word Khaf was incomplete, and that it was originally meant to refer to the Pharaoh Khafre. Unfortunately, when the Dream Stela was re-excavated in 1925, even this line of text had flaked away from the stone tablet.
It is hardly surprising therefore, that later researchers have come to different conclusions regarding the origin and purpose of the Sphinx. One of these was the American author John Anthony West, who together with Boston geologist Dr. Robert Schoch, came up with a provocative new thesis.
They argued that the Sphinx was significantly older than Egyptologists had previously thought, perhaps dating back as far as 9,000 BC, and that possibly some kind of catastrophe was responsible for wiping out evidence of a far older civilization that pre-dated the Egyptian Pharaohs.
They also claimed that the main type of weathering evident on the Great Sphinx and its surrounding walls could only have been caused by prolonged exposure to water, rather than wind and sand, and that the climate around Giza must have been very different at the time that the Sphinx was built.
Water erosion on the Sphinx (R. Schoch)
As Dr. Schoch explains on his website:
“In 1990 I first traveled to Egypt, with the sole purpose of examining the Great Sphinx from a geological perspective. I assumed that the Egyptologists were correct in their dating, but soon I discovered that the geological evidence was not compatible with what the Egyptologists were saying.
Contrast between water and wind erosion
“On the body of the Sphinx, and on the walls of the Sphinx Enclosure (the pit or hollow remaining after the Sphinx’s body was carved from the bedrock), I found heavy erosional features (seen in the accompanying photographs) that I concluded could only have been caused by rainfall and water runoff.
“The thing is, the Sphinx sits on the edge of the Sahara Desert and the region has been quite arid for the last 5000 years. Furthermore, various structures securely dated to the Old Kingdom show only erosion that was caused by wind and sand (very distinct from the water erosion).
“To make a long story short, I came to the conclusion that the oldest portions of the Great Sphinx, what I refer to as the core-body, must date back to an earlier period (at least 5000 B.C., and maybe as early as 7000 or 9000 B.C.), a time when the climate was very different and included more rain.”
But archaeology and geology are not the only disciplines available to humanity for investigating the riddles of the past. There are occult methods as well. One of the people who recognised this was the British Theosophist and spiritualist Raphael Hurst.
Hurst was born in London in 1898. Although originally trained as a journalist, he subsequently devoted his life to the investigation of Oriental Mysticism, and achieved a world-wide following due to a series of books he published under the pen name Paul Brunton.
One of his early works was titled A Search in Secret Egypt. In this book Hurst described his visit to Egypt in which he experienced visionary insights into the origin and purpose of the Sphinx, as well as the Great Pyramid of Giza.
Being an accomplished practitioner in esoteric mysticism, Hurst undertook an unusual experiment. He chose to spend an entire night meditating in front of the Sphinx. It was during the course of this meditation that he had a visionary experience that he later described in his book.
“And I rested a while in the serene languor which comes when thought is suspended. How long I remained thus I do not know, but a moment arrived when the colours disappeared from my vision and a great open landscape took their place. It was weirdly lit up with a silvery light, as a landscape might be lit up under a full moon.
“And all around me there moved throngs of dark figures, hastening to and fro, some carrying loads in baskets set upon their heads and others climbing up and down frail poled scaffoldings fixed against a huge rock.
” Overseers there were among them, issuing orders to the labourers or carefully watching the efforts of men who worked with hammer and chisel upon the rock, the while they chipped into pre-designed pattern. The air rang with the sounds of their repeated blows.
“The faces of all these men were long and hard, the skins tinted reddish brown, or greyish yellow, and the upper lips, also, were noticeably long. And when their work was done, lo! the outcropping rocky escarpment had turned into a gigantic human head set upon a huge lion body, the whole figure resting in a great artificial hollow cut out of the plateau.
“A broad and deep magnificent stairway led down to the hollow. And upon the top of the figure’s curious headdress, whose wide folds stood out behind the ears, there was set a disk of solid gold.
“And the people disappeared and the landscape became as quiet as a deserted grave. Then I noticed a vast sea which stretched its waters over the whole country on my left, its shore-line being less than a league away.
“There was an ominous quality in the silence which I could not understand until a deep rumbling sound came from the very heart of the ocean, the earth shook and trembled underneath me, and with a deafening roar an immense wall of water rose into the air and dashed headlong towards us, towards the Sphinx and me, and overwhelmed us both.
“There was a pause, whether of one minute or of one thousand years I know not; and once again I sat at the feet of the great statue. I looked around and saw a sea no longer.
“Instead a vast expanse of half-dried marsh, with here and there large patches of white salty grains drying in the sun, could alone be seen. And the sun shone fiercely over the land until the patches increased in size and number.
“And still the sun threw its merciless fire upon everything, hunting the last drop of moisture from the marsh and turning all into soft dry land, which was burnt to the colour of pale yellow.
“Still the Sphinx gazed out at the landscape; its thick, strong, unmutilated lips shaped as though they were about to break into a smile, itself apparently content with its solitary existence. How perfectly this lonely figure fitted in with its lonely surroundings!
“In this calm Colossus the very spirit of solitude seemed to have found a worthy incarnation. And so it waited until one day a small fleet of drifting boats stopped at the riverside and disembarked a group of men who came slowly forward and then prostrated themselves with glad prayers before it.
“From that day the spell of silence was broken and henceforward habitations were built on the lowland not far off, and kings came with their priests to pay court to one who was himself the courtless king of the desert.
“And with their coming my vision went out, as the flame goes out of a wick when there is no more fuel.”
After describing this meditative vision in his book, Hurst went on to interpret it in the following words:
“Had I turned a leaf in Egypt’s pre-history which had rarely been turned before? Who dares to measure the age of the Sphinx? Once its Atlantean origin was accepted, who could affix a date to it ?
And I saw no reason why such an origin, pictured so briefly in my vision under the stars, should not be accepted. Atlantis was no longer a fiction of Greek philosophers, Egyptian priests and American Indian tribes:
“Individual scientists had collected a hundred proofs of its existence, and more. I saw, too, that when the Sphinx was first carved out of the rock, the surrounding lowlands could not have been covered with sand; for then the rocky escarpment itself, which stands at the foot of a hill whose summit is topped by the Pyramids, would also have been under the sand – a position full of obstacles which would render the work hardly possible.
“No, it was much more likely that the statue had been cut ere the sands had made their appearance, and when the Sahara was a gigantic sea, beyond which lay the great and tragic island of Atlantis.
“The men who had inhabited prehistoric Egypt, who had carved the Sphinx and founded the world’s oldest civilization, were men who had made their exodus from Atlantis to settle on this strip of land that bordered the Nile.
“And they had left before their ill-fated continent sank to the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean, a catastrophe which had drained the Sahara and turned it into a desert. The shells which to-day litter the surface of the Sahara in places, as well as the fossil fish which are found among its sands, prove that it was once covered by the waters of a vast ocean.
“It was a tremendous and astonishing thought that the Sphinx provided a solid, visible and enduring link between the people of today and the people of a lost world, the unknown Atlanteans.
“This great symbol has lost its meaning for the modern world, for whom it is now but an object of local curiosity.”
So here we have a description of the origin of the Sphinx provided by Raphael Hurst that bears a striking similarity to the theory advanced by Dr. Schoch and John Anthony West, and which can be summarised as follows:
Many thousands of years ago, an ancient civilisation existed on an island in the Atlantic Ocean, that was known as Atlantis. When it became known that their civilisation was doomed, some of those who were forewarned left their ill-fated island and travelled to what is now Egypt.
There they set to work to create the Sphinx, together with its accompanying temple, the Great Pyramid. These two monuments were constructed on a rocky plateau that flanked the vast ocean that stretched out towards the western horizon.
Hurst described the workers as “dark figures”, but then went on to elaborate that “the faces of all these men were long and hard, the skins tinted reddish brown, or greyish yellow, and the upper lips, also, were noticeably long”.
It is perhaps worth noting in passing here that one of the striking features of the carved heads on Easter Island, is their stern mien combined with wide, thin lips. Could these mysterious stone statues perhaps be linked in some way with the lost civilisation of Atlantis?
Hurst then went on to describe how he heard a deep rumbling sound that seemed to emanate from the very depths of the ocean, followed by an “immense wall of water” that completely submerged the Sphinx. He referred to this as “the deluge”, which others might call the flood of Noah.
After a period of time which Hurst suggested could have been “one minute or one thousand years”, the sea drained away leaving in its place “a vast expanse of half-dried marsh”. This in turn was dried up by the Sun to form the desert that surrounds the Sphinx to this day.
So here we have a visionary tale about the origin of the Sphinx that would account for the variety of geological features reported by Dr. Schoch, together with weathering patterns in the rock attributed to long periods of exposure to water and to wind.
The night that Raphael Hurst spent in solitary meditation generated visionary insights into the origin and history of the Sphinx that were without parallel at the time he wrote A Search in Secret Egypt. Yet not content with that, he then undertook an even more stupendous challenge.
He decided to attempt something that was unlikely to have been done before, and almost certainly has never been done since. He decided to try and persuade the Egyptian authorities to grant him permission to spend an entire night locked up alone inside the Great Pyramid of Giza.
The New Scientific Messiah
Thomas Kuhn has pointed out that “almost all the men who achieve these fundamental inventions of a new paradigm have been either very young or very new to the field whose paradigm they change.” 1
Isaac Newton was in his early twenties when he first expounded his revolutionary theories at Cambridge. Albert Einstein was twenty-six when he published the three papers that revolutionized the science of physics. However, despite the early age at which they made their initial scientific contributions, it was only many decades later that the full impact of their revolutionary ideas was officially recognized.
As amazing as it may seem, there is every sign that the new scientific messiah has arrived, and has laid down the mathematical foundation for the new paradigm. This revolutionary genius, however, has thus far been barely recognised by the scientific community.
Burkhard Heim (1925-2001)
The name of this latter day Einstein was Burkhard Heim. Like Einstein, Heim was of German descent, and like all the great scientific innovators of the past, he formulated his revolutionary ideas while he was in his early twenties.
It was in 1949, when he was just 24 years old, that the young Heim began to speculate on the theoretical nature of matter, and the possibility of realising the Einsteinian dream of unifying the known forces of the universe into a single mathematical theory.
Energy and Mass
Heim began by considering the correlation between energy and mass, and was immediately struck by the similarities that existed in the equations describing gravity and centrifugal force. In both of these inertial forces, their mathematical expression required mass (m) to be divided by distance (r).
It was evident to Heim that the total mass of any object in nature must therefore consist of two distinct parts. The major part of an object’s mass was the sum of the actual constituents of matter that made up that object.
Yet, since every object in nature generated a gravitational field of energy around it, and since Einstein had proved via his famous formula (E=mc2) that energy was simply another form of matter, Heim realised that the energy of the gravitational field excited by any object could be reduced to mass as well.
Because the amount of energy contained in any gravitational field varied according to the size of an object, as well as to the distance from the centre of that object, it was obvious that the mass of any object was inextricably linked with distance.
Heim thus concluded that the true mass of any object in the universe was the actual mass of the visible object, plus a smaller field mass, which was the equivalent mass of its gravitational field.
Gravity and Electromagnetism
Heim then turned his attention to the forces of electromagnetism and gravitation. It had long been known that electricity and magnetism were separate but related parts of a unified force called electromagnetism.
Because of this, every moving electrical field generated a magnetic field that manifested at right angles to the electrical field. Similarly, any change in a magnetic field generated an electrical field at right angles to it. It was this ability of a moving magnetic field to produce an electromotive force that was the basic principle of the electric generator.
Just as in the theory of electromagnetism, that provided for twin fields which manifested at right angles to each other, so Heim derived from first principles a mathematical theory that linked gravity to a unique field of its own, that existed at right angles to the gravitational field.
Heim called this new field a “mesofield”. The mesofield was to gravity therefore, what the magnetic field was to electricity. It was that field of energy that would be created by a moving gravitational field, and which then manifested at right angles to the gravitational field.
It was a theoretical consequence of Heim’s mathematical theory, that by manipulating the mesofield, it would be possible to create a gravitational field at right angles to it. Heim’s theory thus provided for the first time in history, a scientific basis for the creation and manipulation of a gravitational field of energy.
The corollary also applied, and that was by manipulation of the mesofield generated by any physical object, it would be possible to suspend the gravitational force surrounding that object, thereby rendering it weightless within our space-time continuum.
A New View of Reality
Starting with this as an initial hypothesis, Heim then began to evaluate the nature of matter in mathematical terms. He used for this purpose a mathematical device called a tensor.
By means of a tensor, various terms can be reduced to a mathematical relationship that remains constant under specific conditions. These terms may then relate equally to any subject matter without affecting the mathematical validity of the tensor.
Heim succeeded in deriving an energy-density-tensor that was able to define the true nature of matter and energy. Using this tensor, Heim discovered that it would take thirty-six mathematical terms to define completely the nature of physical reality. Since thirty-six terms formed a matrix of six multiplied by six, this suggested to Heim that physical reality consisted of six dimensions.
In the development of this energy-density-tensor, Heim found that it was necessary for three dimensions to be “real” or space-like, and three dimensions to be “imaginary” or time-like. This did not mean that the imaginary dimensions did not exist, but that they existed independently of the “real” dimensions.
In deriving his six-dimensional energy-density-tensor, Heim was able to combine all the known forces of physics into a single unified theory.
Heim found that when he excluded the gravitational terms from his energy-density-tensor, he was left with the Faraday tensor of electromagnetic equations, and when he extracted the electrical and magnetic terms, he was left with Einstein’s gravitational tensor of relativity.
What he had succeeded in achieving was the enduring goal of physical science. He had combined the field theories of gravitation and electromagnetism into a single theory. Heim’s unified field theory was not only the dream of science fulfilled, but it formed the mathematical basis for an entirely new view of reality.
This revolutionary theory promises to transform the whole of science. Heim’s theory is, in fact, the scientific breakthrough that links the realm of matter with that of mind in a revolutionary mathematical embrace. It holds out the promise of becoming the foundation of a new scientific paradigm.
A World of Six Dimensions
Although Heim had succeeded in deriving a mathematical formula that described the structure of physical matter, he was obliged to speculate as to what these six dimensions might actually represent in the world of common experience.
Heim’s dimensions were divided, as has been noted, into three “real” dimensions that were physical, and three “imaginary” dimensions that were non-physical.
The three “real” dimensions were material and could be perceived directly by the human senses. These were the three physical dimensions of length, breadth and height. The three “imaginary” dimensions, on the other hand, could not be discerned by the senses.
This meant that although matter and life were subject to these three imaginary dimensions, humanity had no means of sensing them directly. They could only be inferred from sensory information. The first of these imaginary dimensions was the dimension of time itself.
In seeking to find an interpretation of the second imaginary dimension, Heim was attracted to an ancient idea drawn from Aristotelian philosophy. Aristotle taught that every creature and every object in the universe possessed a quality of “entelechy”, based on the Greek word Telos, meaning a goal or perfection.
According to Aristotle, entelechy was that vital force that acted within every organism directing its life and growth, and which aimed constantly towards perfection. Entelechy, therefore, referred to the actualisation of potential. It was the evolutionary drive that animated all of nature, and which might also be called the Cosmic Life Force, or, for those who preferred, the God Force.
It was this creative force of life, striving for perfection, that Heim defined as the second non-material dimension. Under the influence of this force, Heim predicted that molecules of matter would organise, wherever possible, into living systems of successively higher orders of complexity.
Entropy and Negative Entropy
The third imaginary dimension, according to Heim, served to control the direction and extent of this organising force.
Heim determined that this force would manifest in one of two ways. Its influence would either direct the flow of energy from chaos into order, or else it would reverse itself, in which case the flow of energy would change from order into chaos.
Now the process of change from order to disorder is a well-established principle in physics, where it is referred to as “entropy”. Heim predicted, however, that it was essentially this same force that was at work in the generation of organic life, by creating order out of disorder. Heim referred to this creative process, which was the opposite process of entropy, as “negative entropy”.
We can easily see the process of entropy at work if we heat water to a high temperature. If we now stop this heating process, the heat in the water will slowly dissipate into the surrounding air until a uniform temperature of water and air is attained. This loss of energy, or the process from order to disorder, is what scientists call the action of entropy.
When we look at the field of biology, however, we find that this process is reversed. Here, the organism acts in such a way as to achieve order out of disorder. We can see this organizing process at work when a seed is planted in the ground.
As the seed germinates, it sends out tiny root hairs into the surrounding soil. Through these root hairs, the seed acquires molecules from the soil. Using the DNA molecule as its blueprint, it makes replicas of its cells from these molecules obtained from the soil, and assembles them in greater and greater quantities. In this way the seed grows into a plant by taking random sources of energy from the soil and ordering them according to a particular pattern of expression.
This process of creating order out of random energy, said Heim, was simply the reverse process of entropy. In the manifestation of the universe, therefore, these twin aspects of entropy and negative entropy were constantly acting in unison together.
The life principle functioned by generating order out of chaos, and by manifesting in energy as a particular pattern of expression. When the co-coordinating force of negative entropy subsided, it was replaced by that of entropy, in which case the organism decomposed into random constituents of energy.
In terms of Heim’s theory, therefore, a clear distinction can now be drawn between the processes of “life” and “death”. Life represents that manifestation of the Cosmic Life Force operating in its creative expression (negative entropy). Death represents this same force operating in its destructive phase (entropy).
Under this theory, the exact moment of birth or death can be precisely established. Birth is that moment when the creative phase begins, or when the process of entropy ends, and death is that moment when this process reverses itself.
To summarise, therefore, Heim defined the three non-material or negative dimensions in the following way. The first of these dimensions was time. The second was “entelechy”, the evolutionary force that was constantly striving for perfection. The third of these non-spatial dimensions governed the direction in which this force operated.
In its creative expression, it created order out of disorder (negative entropy), and in its destructive phase (entropy), the energy that had previously been held together in a particular pattern of expression, now resolved itself once more into its primal source.
The Role of the Quantum
It should be noted that the interpretation of Heim’s energy-density-tensor needs to be treated quite independently from the mathematics involved, which rests upon legitimate, although complex, mathematical equations involving all six dimensions.
Heim’s Unified Field Theory of Matter and Gravitation is a theory that is rooted in quantum theory. However, it carries the principle of the quantum farther than any physicist had hitherto suspected.
It was Max Planck who discovered that the energy of heat was not radiated in an unbroken linear fashion, but was emitted in the form of tiny, individual lumps of action. Planck called each separate lump of action a quantum. Einstein extended Planck’s discovery further, by declaring that all forms of energy were propagated or absorbed in the form of these discrete particles or quanta.
Heim’s quantum field theory carries the influence of the quantum to its ultimate extent, for his energy-density-tensor demands that all six dimensions must be quantised. It is therefore necessary to quantise not only the three physical dimensions of space, but the three “imaginary” dimensions as well.
Heim’s theory requires that space itself be composed of a multitude of tiny quanta of area. Heim has christened each individual quantum of area a “metron”. Similarly, time is quantised, and can only take place in multiples of individual quanta of time called “chronons”.
Finally, the two remaining imaginary dimensions are considered by Heim to function in multiples of discrete particles known as “gravitons”. Heim did not assume that gravitons travelled at a speed similar to that of electromagnetic particles, but left open the possibility that gravitons could in fact be super-luminal particles, that is, particles travelling faster than the speed of light.
Because his mathematics had to cater for each basic quantum of nature, it was necessary for Heim to invent a totally new mathematical calculus, before formulating his unified quantum field theory. In this respect, Heim has had to do what Isaac Newton himself had done in formulating his own revolutionary ideas some three centuries earlier.
From Theory to Practice
Having deduced his comprehensive theory, Heim’s next task was to see whether his theory was actually representative of the physical universe.
He found that the substitution of a few quantum integers into his mathematical equations did, in fact, lead to valid physical results. By substituting these integers into his formulae for the masses of elementary particles, Heim found that he was able to predict the masses of all known elementary particles to an accuracy of eight decimal places.
In addition, he was able to explain the internal structure of elementary particles, including such aspects as their quantum numbers and spin, as well as their average lifetimes. Heim’s revolutionary theory went far beyond the micro-world of sub-nuclear particles, however, for it provided dramatic new insights into the macro-world of astronomy as well.
For example, it explained the sizes of galactic clusters. It also gave new meaning to the “red-shift” effect, whereby the frequencies of light observed by astronomers from distant stars and galaxies were shifted towards the red side of the visible spectrum of light.
According to Heim’s theory, the gravitational field exerted by any astronomical body would reach its limit at a certain point in space. At that limit, Heim’s mathematics indicated that the force of gravity would reverse itself, and repel instead of attract.
This explained why galactic clusters did not interact gravitationally to form higher orders of matter, but remained separate in space. Light approaching a gravitational field from outside would be repelled. In overcoming this repulsion, the light would give up a certain amount of its energy.
This loss of energy would require the frequency of the light from the distant source to decrease, and this would appear to observers as if its frequency had shifted to the red end of the spectrum – the well-known phenomenon of the “red-shift.”
As we have seen, astronomers have interpreted this shift to the red end of the light spectrum as a Doppler effect, and it is this interpretation that is the basis of the theory of the Big Bang.
If Heim is correct in this new explanation of the red-shift of light, it would add yet another nail in the coffin of the long-accepted theory of the Big Bang. Clearly, astronomers educated in the ways of the existing scientific paradigm, will resist this challenge to their accepted ideas to the death.
In addition to the foregoing, Heim’s theory went on to provide an understanding of the elementary processes of life, the after-death state, and accounted for such things as psychological and paranormal phenomena.
According to his theory, the non-physical dimensions are the realms of what we have come to call Psi phenomena. Heim predicts that once it is possible to create a mesofield within the laboratory, the emergence of this field will be accompanied by spontaneous paranormal phenomena.
In terms of theory, therefore, it is now possible to talk of creating Psi phenomena in the laboratory under rigidly controlled conditions, in a way that can be validated by mathematical analysis.
In a further extension of his theory, Heim indicates that the actual manifestation of physical matter in the universe is ordered by an underlying non-physical pattern, that exists in the non-material dimensions. It is this non-material pattern that controls the form that any particular manifestation will take.
Based on this new view of life, every organic creature grows by means of the underlying pattern relative to that species. It is this underlying pattern (that Harold Burr has called the L-field) that governs the physical characteristics of every creature.
Before a physical body can be formed, there must first be created its non-physical counterpart. Under the direction of this blueprint, and driven by the Cosmic Life Force, the body is then formed through the acquisition of energy through the process of negative entropy, and by building new cells according to the presiding pattern of the field.
This underlying pattern in all created life also holds out new possibilities for the healing arts. The process of healing, therefore, may well resolve itself into a matter of applying suitable amounts of energy to this underlying pattern, in order to restore the creature to its former “healthy” state.
The governing blueprint of the non-physical pattern will then apply that energy to restore the organism to its fully functioning form. Heim’s theory thus not only justifies paranormal (psychic) healing, but opens up miraculous new possibilities of healing.
It is hardly possible at this time to speculate about the potential applications of Heim’s revolutionary Field Theory. It is safe to say, however, that it will not only change our understanding of the world and of ourselves, but it will also allow us to manipulate matter in ways that now seem to be impossible.
If it succeeds in becoming the new scientific paradigm, it will herald an age of technological marvels that beggar description. The magic of this new description of reality will be truly dazzling. In that era scientists will discover that they possess the power to transform space and time itself.
Heim’s Remarkable Life
The fact that a scientific theory capable of offering such a rich cornucopia of worldly wonder actually exists today will seem unbelievable to many, especially as scientists have long believed that this crowning intellectual achievement could occur only through the combined efforts of entire armies of scientists, operating in unison together.
Yet it is no less incredible than the character of the man himself. Burkhard Heim was not only a man of unique talents, but he was the beneficiary (or victim – depending on how one chooses to look at it) of an amazing twist of fate.
He was born on February 9, 1925, in the city of Potsdam near Berlin. As a boy his early interest lay in the field of chemistry, and it was in this discipline that he first excelled. At the age of sixteen he invented a device that led to his being seconded to the Chemical-Technological State Establishment in Berlin.
It was there, in May1944, while conducting a laboratory experiment, that the teenaged Heim was involved in an accidental explosion that almost cost him his life. He was severely injured in the blast, and as a legacy of this explosion, lost both his hands. In addition, he was blinded in one eye, and left with only partial hearing.
Incredibly, Heim was undaunted by this devastating setback, and continued to pursue his studies in chemistry. After several years, however, he developed an interest in theoretical physics, and in 1954 was awarded his Master’s degree (diploma) in physics at the University of Gottingen in Lower Saxony.
Even before he was granted this degree, Heim had begun to develop his revolutionary ideas. His first major opportunity to present them to the scientific community came at the Second International Aeronautical Congress at Innsbruck, Austria, in 1952.
While most of those attending this conference confined their papers to the problems of post-war aeronautics, Heim stunned the assembled gathering by presenting a theoretical paper in which he advanced the idea that it was possible to travel in space by harnessing the power of the mesofield.
This was of course a time when even the idea of space flight seemed an improbable dream. The very thought that people might actually be able to travel to other planets and stars, and might do so by means of a force that was then still unknown, and unfounded, seemed so absurd that the ideas of the handicapped physicist were rejected with disbelief and scorn.
It proved to be a salutary experience. Having been rebuffed on this occasion, Heim vowed that he would only present his ideas before his colleagues when he had conducted a complete review of the mathematical proofs that his new theory demanded.
Heim’s Mathematical Proofs
This was a process that was to take him a quarter of a century to complete. It was not until 1979 that the first volume of his work entitled Elementarstrukturen der Materie (Elementary Structures of Matter) was published. It was followed five years later by a second volume. 2, 3
These two volumes were devoted primarily to the revision of the mathematical proofs required by his revolutionary theory. Because for Heim all aspects of nature needed to be quantised, it was necessary to rework all the existing mathematical theorems by replacing the old continuous functions by new functions which depended on finite steps. Apart from this major work, Heim was content to confine himself to occasional articles and reports. 4, 5, 6
It is amazing that a man burdened by such physical handicaps was able to overcome these incredible difficulties, and to persist to the point where he was successful in formulating his revolutionary theory. Yet the daunting turn of destiny seems in retrospect to have been the deciding factor in his ultimate success.
For just as Beethoven was able to compose his greatest symphonies by withdrawing to an inner world of isolation imposed by his deafness, so Heim’s devastating injuries that so severely hampered his physical expression, nevertheless allowed him the opportunity to absorb himself in an inner world of thought, divorced from outer distractions.
In this he was assisted by the dedicated services of his wife, who was able to transcribe the ideas that Heim dictated to her, and which became the foundation of his published works.
Heim’s Unified Quantum Field Theory of Matter and Gravitation
Heim’s Unified Quantum Field Theory of Matter and Gravitation stands today as a supreme intellectual achievement, perhaps without parallel in the entire history of science.
In the past, many decades were to elapse before the theories of other solitary geniuses of science were recognised by their colleagues. The mathematical genius of Isaac Newton was not recognised in his own lifetime.
It was a fate that was equally true of Heim, for he died on January 14, 2001, without seeing his new theory vindicated by his peers. One wonders how long we may have to wait before the world of science is ready to consider Heim’s revolutionary ideas.
Although Heim has provided the indispensable framework for the new scientific paradigm, by laboriously charting those mathematical theorems that are necessary for its validation, the idea of a six-dimensional universe itself was not unique to Heim. Other scientists, such as the British physicist Weston Wells, have expounded similar ideas.
It was the result of a series of personal discussions with Wells that led Sir Victor Goddard, a senior commander in the Royal Air Force during the Second World War, to make the following prediction in his book Flight to Reality, which was published in 1975.
“Materialists employing mathematics see no merit, yet, in any six-dimensional continuum of normal consciousness, embodying three exclusive measurements of space, and three of time. Someday, I prophesy, they will.” 7

The Importance of Humidity
Another factor that deserves close attention in any experiment involving Psi is the level of humidity – the presence or absence of water vapour in the air. It is clear from numerous instances that the level of humidity can significantly influence the results of Psi experiments.
When American reporters Henry Gris and William Dick visited what was then the Soviet Union in 1975 to investigate Russian achievements in the field of parapsychology, they were introduced to Dr. Genady Sergeyev, who claimed to have invented a device that he called a “time machine”.
The machine was simple enough and seemed unlikely to the Americans to be the product of any esoteric technology. Dr. Sergeyev alleged that his machine was able to record electrical impulses generated by human thought. As he explained to Gris and Dick:
“By using very exact analytical methods, we have determined that a man can change the electrical conductivity of the air around him. An important part in this is played by the water vapor in the air. In laboratory experiments we have shown that the electrical field of the human brain can affect the contents of this vapor.”
Sergeyev went on to say, “Since thought is energy, the human body can transmit electrical impulses to this medium, the vapor. What happens then is that our thoughts change the structure of the molecules in the vapor, which then becomes a bank or repository of human thoughts.”
He added, “We have proven in tests that a room where there is a reasonable amount of humidity will retain human thought for up to four days in such vapor ‘banks’. A person who has been thinking intensely even for a very short time, will leave these thoughts in the vapor banks”. 1
The energy that Dr. Sergeyev attributes to thought is referred to elsewhere in Russia as “bioenergy”, which is energy that is derived in some fashion from Bios, the Greek word for life. American Thomas Bearden commented on the significance of water as a medium for bioenergy as follows:
“Water is a substance that changes its state and form in a fantastic complex and is therefore one of the very best collectors for bioenergy or tulpoidal energy. That is, in fact, why water is so universally associated with living biosystems, for biosystems need a good collective medium in which to establish tuning. So it is not accidental that water is necessary to life as we know it, or that our bodies are largely made up of water.” 2
Wilhelm Reich, the Austrian psychologist who served as an assistant to Sigmund Freud in Vienna between 1922 and 1928, coined the term “orgone” for this bioenergetic force. He noted in his writings that water had a special affinity for orgone, drawing it to itself. He was careful to monitor levels of humidity in any experiments which he conducted involving orgone energy.
The American mentalist Kreskin also mentions in passing the link between humidity and telepathy in his autobiography. “As with any human interaction, no performance is the same because no audience is the same, no mood or night the same. Rainy nights are always good, for reasons beyond my comprehension”. 3
Dr. Owen has also commented on this significance in relation to the psychokinetist Jan Merta.
“I saw him do very impressive demonstrations in conditions very adverse to working with electric charges. This was at the dowsers’ convention at Danville in early October 1970. The Vermont maple trees were in their full autumn splendor but the shine was rather taken off things by the persistent fall of heavy rain.
“The atmosphere in the room was as damp as could be and most inimical to any formation of electrical charges. However, the feather responded most decisively to Jan’s commands, which at the end of the demonstration he was giving from about thirty feet away”. 4
As in the case of Kreskin, it is likely that the presence of such a high level of water vapour in the air contributed considerably to the efficacy of Merta’s abilities.
It is worth recalling that the noted psychic healer Olga Worrall was on one occasion able to produce a moving wave pattern inside a cloud chamber. She did this by placing her hands around it as if it were a patient. She was later able to reproduce this effect at a distance of six hundred miles (965 kilometres). 5
A cloud chamber, as its name implies, is a device for creating air saturated with water vapour. The success of this unusual experiment may well have been due largely to the fortuitous choice of the cloud chamber, and to the presence of water vapour.
The Importance of Emotion
Yet another factor which parapsychological investigators should closely monitor is the level of emotion of those involved in their experiments. Commenting on the importance of emotion, Dr. Sergeyev told his American reporters:
“A person under tremendous stress, facing a crisis or suffering great fear, can increase his electrical output ten thousand times. In this way, a man can over a very brief period record the information of his entire life on a nearby object.
“By brief, I mean in a split second. If you have an object that a man has had for a long time – a favourite book, for instance – you will find that it has already been affected by his electrical impulses. It will contain the thoughts and emotional imprints of the man.” 6
Similarly, it was found that in experiments conducted by Semyon Kirlian and his wife Valentina, the corona discharge recorded via Kirlian photography on rabbits varied greatly, especially when the rabbits were frightened.
“The intensity of the emotion increased two-or-threefold at the moment of shock but there was a return to the corona’s ordinary size after several minutes. By introducing a sensor into the rabbit’s brain, an intensity of radiation ten times greater than that observed on the skin and muscles was noted.” 7
When Carl Jung visited Freud in Vienna in 1909, he happened to ask him what he thought about parapsychology in general, and precognition in particular. Freud, as we have seen, entertained only the darkest thoughts of the occult, which he referred to as a “black tide”.
He naturally dismissed Jung’s question as “nonsensical”, but did so in such an offhand manner that Jung had difficulty in checking his annoyance. Shortly thereafter, as Freud was leaving, Jung felt a curious inner sensation.
“It was as if my diaphragm were made of iron and were becoming red-hot – a glowing vault. And at that moment there was such a loud report from the bookcase which stood right next to us, that we both started up in alarm, fearing that the thing was going to topple over on us.
“I said to Freud: ‘There, that is an example of a so-called catalytic exteriorization phenomenon.’ ‘Oh come,’ he exclaimed, ‘that is sheer bosh.’ ‘It is not,’ I replied. ‘You are mistaken, Herr Professor. And to prove my point I now predict that in a moment there will be another such loud report!’ Sure enough, no sooner had I said the words than the same detonation went off in the bookcase.” 8
Psychiatrist Berthold Schwarz has also recorded cases where the presence of an intense emotion has resulted in extraordinary paranormal effects. In one example, he quoted the case of a man who had been trying to repair his fireplace prior to the arrival of an approaching blizzard. While he was engaged in this task his cantankerous elderly father insisted that he stop work there and then, and prepare his lunch instead.
“Although under pressure, the husband immediately discontinued his work, swallowed his anger, and dutifully prepared some soup, and while it was being poured from the can into a Pyrex bowl on the (unlit gas) stove, it blew up.
“I cleaned up the mess and opened another can of soup and as I was about to turn on the gas, the bowl exploded. (Minutes later) while walking with an (empty) glass coffee cup for myself, it exploded. I quit with three things in a row.”
Two weeks later, the same man was involved in another unusual incident.
“The husband, in the presence of his daughter and two adult friends, was again upset by his elderly father. The husband said: ‘I was all wound up – wild with energy and in a hurry. I reached for the (empty glass) coffee pot and before I could make coffee it disintegrated into pieces – the size of confetti.”
The wife of this man described her husband to Dr. Schwarz by saying: “He has an explosive temper and is trying not to lose it. You can feel the tension in the air.” 9
Schwarz also quoted the case of another lady named Selma who was noted for her sudden flashes of intense rage. A friend of hers related an incident that occurred when she and Selma were out driving together.
“One time we were all driving to the city and some hoodlums in a car cut in front of us. Selma said, ‘By God, they should burn.’ The next thing I knew, the guys got out of the car, covered in blue flames. The car caught fire as they leaped out.” 10
Dr. Scott Rogo recorded a case involving a Mrs. Ruth Pritchard of Denver, Colorado. Mrs. Pritchard’s son had died on October 12, 1957. On February 1, 1958, on the occasion of Ruth’s first birthday anniversary since the loss of her son, she was understandably miserable.
“As I sat there choking back the tears, I longed to see him and thought that I would give all I have just to hear him call me ‘Mom’ today.” As she and her husband were eating breakfast a short while later, the telephone rang. “I lifted the receiver and said ‘Hello?’ A young man’s voice said ‘Mom’. I stood there shaking, unable to say a word. In the silence I heard the receiver at the other end of the line click. I walked back to the table crying.” 11
A similar incident was recorded by Shirley Jonas, whose mother passed away in Alaska on Christmas Eve 1984, and who subsequently saw frosted pictures of her mother’s favourite flowers in the casement windows. Strong emotional ties are frequent denominators of paranormal occurrences.
The ingredient of emotion also turned out to be a crucial factor in an experiment conducted by members of the Toronto Society for Psychical Research. Although they were initially unsuccessful in their efforts to create a ghost by means of calm, concentrated meditation, they achieved success when they changed their method of approach.
At the suggestion of a fellow investigator, they began instead to create an atmosphere of jollity and relaxation, telling jokes and singing ribald songs. It was not long thereafter that they began to hear “raps” on the table, a phenomenon which then led to the merry saga of Philip, the passionate ghost. 12
Probably the most common link between emotional states and paranormal phenomena occurs during outbreaks of what has come to be known as poltergeistery. The word “poltergeist” is derived from two terms of High German origin, poltern meaning to make noises, and geist meaning spirit or ghost.
The noises attributable to these ghostly sources vary from raps, bangs and scratches, to whistles and even imitations of a human voice. Poltergeistery is not limited to sounds, but may include a whole festival of paranormal events. Household objects may appear to move of their own volition.
These objects have also been known to vanish from their original locations under mysterious circumstances, only to reappear equally mysteriously in other places. Objects may be flung about a room, or may be directed at certain targets. Fires may break out without explanation.
These outbreaks of poltergeistery are usually temporary affairs, and although the name suggests that some discarnate agency is at work, these paranormal effects are invariably linked to people between the ages of ten and twenty who are undergoing severe emotional stress.
As parapsychologist A.R.G. Owen remarks, “In a large proportion of cases there is evidence to suggest that the poltergeist person is in a situation which prior to the poltergeist outbreak has put her in a state of emotional tension involving masked anger, fear or resentment.” 13
Although Dr. Owen refers in this statement to “her”, poltergeistery phenomena may equally well emanate from a male.
Psychiatrist Berthold Schwarz concurs with this explanation, noting that “When the usual methods of expressing feelings are acutely blocked and there is a build-up of intra and inter-psychic tension without any relief, the telekinetic pathway becomes the symbolic, goal-directed, mind-matter, final common pathway with a meaningful discharge of tensions.” 14
While poltergeistery is thus explained by the psychiatrist as the product of repressed emotional tension, this explanation carries profound implications for the physicist. For whether the manifestation of poltergeistery is attributed to the influence of an incarnate or discarnate mind, we are confronted here with irrefutable evidence of the mind’s ability to influence matter.
It can teleport objects, materialise and dematerialise them, create noises, start fires, and generally interact with matter in ways that are totally at variance with the laws of classical physics. The evidence for paranormal phenomena is, in fact, incontrovertible.
The phenomena of Psi are observables that are as legitimate as any other basic data of classical science. Although these observables are valid facts in themselves, they continue to be ignored by conventional scientists because they cannot be incorporated into a coherent scientific theory.
The verification of Psi is not simply a matter of determining whether a certain event did or did not take place. In order for a paranormal event to be accepted as a scientific fact, it has to be explained. It is this explanation, or rather the lack of it, that lies at the heart of the changing paradigm.
The Explanatory Challenge
Despite the fact that the odd events that have come to be included in the category of Psi have steadily been accumulating over the course of the last century, they continue to be rejected, because they cannot be explained within the current scientific paradigm.
Even the most ardent parapsychologist has so far been unable to explain why these events occur, and why they take the form they do. Although paranormal events have increasingly been brought within the scope of scientific methods of measurement and analysis, these observables have yet to be satisfactorily explained within the confines of a particular theory.
In other words, the observables of Psi have not yet been transformed from an undisciplined mob into an organised army. The facts of Psi still have to be explained, and until they are, there is a very large body of scientific opinion that simply refuses to acknowledge the existence or validity of any Psi observables.
The problem of explaining Psi, as Margenau and LeShan have clearly shown, lies in the very nature of the word explanation. In order for anything to be “explained”, it has to be made clear within the realm of what is already known and understood. The unknown must be revealed in terms of the known.
But if Psi phenomena could be explained within the terms of conventional science, it would not be called “paranormal”. These observables bear the stigma of the paranormal for the precise reason that they do not fit into the accepted mould of current scientific thinking.
The demand, therefore, that parapsychologists should “explain” the nature of Psi occurrences before they can be taken seriously, is thus completely without logic. For as Margenau and LeShan point out:
“If a system of reality-ordering forbids certain events from occurring you cannot explain that event within the system. Parapsychologists have tried and tried to get from here to there on the solid-appearing roads of our ordinary theory about reality, the theory of the sensory realm. It can’t be done. You cannot explain events forbidden by a system within that system.” 15
Since the classical scientific paradigm expressly forbids the sorts of things that parapsychologists have been observing, because it has separated experience into two strict categories – one of mind and the other of matter – it serves little purpose to keep on trying to validate this data within the limits of an outdated paradigm. It cannot be done.
Experience, as parapsychology now shows, is far too rich for existing scientific theory. For Psi to be effectively explained, the existing scientific paradigm must itself change. The history of science demonstrates, as Kuhn has shown, that new paradigms replace old paradigms because they are more successful in solving those problems which scientists have come to recognise as being acute.
But the new paradigm is never just an extension of existing knowledge. As Kuhn remarks, “That is why a new theory, however special its range of application, is seldom or never an increment to what is already known. Its assimilation requires the reconstruction and the re-evaluation of prior fact.” 16
It is this assimilation of prior fact into a completely new mould of thinking that marks the chief characteristic of each new scientific revolution. The true “explanation” of Psi, therefore, will not just be an extension of existing knowledge. Like all revolutions, the new paradigm will dramatically destroy old constructs, and rebuild them in a form that is completely new.
Einstein’s explanation of gravity, for example, was not simply an extension of Newton’s theory of gravitation. It totally revolutionised it, by explaining gravity, not as a force that manifested itself between material objects, but as a necessary consequence of the geometry of space-time.
Objects did not attract one another because of some inherent romance between them, they did so, argued Einstein, because the space-time continuum of which they were an integral part was curved. It was this curvature of space-time itself which made that movement necessary.
Newton’s idea of force had to be replaced by the notion of geometry. It is hardly surprising, therefore, that Einstein’s peers initially found it so difficult to absorb his revolutionary ideas.
The Coming Paradigm
The coming shift in paradigm demanded by Psi phenomena will lead to a scientific convulsion equally as great as that precipitated by Einstein. It will likewise be misunderstood and resisted by those who are committed to the old ideas. Struggle is inevitable before the new age dawns.
This new paradigm will require a bridge to be built between mind and matter, to restore the heart and soul of science that was lost in the Cartesian split. At the same time it will need to be built upon the foundations of existing science. Successful scientific paradigms do not succeed by ignoring past data. What they do is to incorporate it into a novel form, and illuminate it in a new light.
Twenty-first century physics is now inextricably bound up with the science of quantum mechanics, the study of the motions of sub-nuclear particles. The new physics, as we have seen, has already made profound discoveries that have transformed our traditional view of “reality”.
So in order to be successful, this new scientific paradigm will not only have to remain firmly rooted in the world of matter, as presently described by the science of quantum mechanics, but it will also need to embrace an entirely new realm of mind, as represented by all the known categories of Psi phenomena.
That is to say, Psi phenomena will only be successfully explained when a scientist of the stature of Einstein emerges, who can reveal Psi in the light of what has gone before. And what has gone before in physical science is essentially Einstein’s relativity theory combined with that of quantum mechanics.
No matter how brilliant a psychologist or parapsychologist may happen to be, and no matter how great his or her intuitive insight is, he or she will never be able to explain Psi to the satisfaction of scientists, unless he or she is also trained in quantum theory.
The “true” explanation of Psi will have to be revealed by a person who is grounded in quantum physics. Since the language of quantum physics is mathematics, this new explanation of Psi will have to be a mathematical explanation.
It is only when physicists are convinced of the “proof” of the relevant mathematics, that they will be willing to concede the “reality” of paranormal phenomena. So the world waits for a new Einstein who can penetrate the gloom of the paranormal with the analytical insight of the intuitive mathematician.
