The Pyramid Code is a fascinating new five-part series that explores the pyramid fields and temples in Egypt and megalithic sites around the world, looking for clues to sophisticated technology in the ancient world. The se... more »ries is based on the extensive research done in Egypt and around the world by Dr. Carmen Boulter of the University of Calgary. The Pyramid Code features interviews with geologists, physicists, archaeologists, engineers, and authors and asks the questions: Who were the ancients and what did they know? Could the pyramids be much older than traditional Egyptology would have us believe? Could it be that the ancients were more technologically advanced than we are today? Why do we have so little understanding of the ancient Egyptians?The Pyramid Code episodes1. The Band of Peace This episode raises questions about the purpose of the pyramids, challenging the story traditional Egyptology tells. See rare footage of six distinct pyramid sites near the Great Pyramid, with evidence of superior technology and sophisticated knowledge of science and the cosmos.2. High Level Technology In this episode, evidence that the Ancient Egyptians used high level technology to construct pyramids and temples is shown. Scientists discuss the source of this power and its application in the ancient world. Our science is just beginning to grasp what the ancients clearly understood.3. Sacred Cosmology Deciphering the meaning of strange symbols in Egyptian art gives insight into ancient knowledge of sacred cosmology. A new way of interpreting hieroglyphics is presented, indicating that the ancients had sophisticated understanding of physics, biology and celestial mechanics. The team goes on an expedition into the open desert in search of a remote site of extreme antiquity called nabta playa. Here, Neolithic stone circles were found marking the motion of the same stars as were tracked in pharonic civilization. The possible connection is discussed. 4. The Empowered Human The empowered human proposes that the pyramid builders were living in a Golden Age. They had more refined senses, and experienced higher levels of consciousness, which gave them superior abilities to those we have today. The sacred feminine was honored and existed in balance with the masculine.5. A New ChronologyAfter examining the evidence presented in the series, it seems clear the dates given by traditional Egyptology don t fit. Carefully considering cycles of time through gold, silver, bronze and iron ages of Plato's Great Year, a new chronology emerges that illuminates Ancient Egypt.« less
"Each of the five episodes of this series raises questions that I never thought to ask and provides answers that are mind blowing and yet, because of the way they are presented, quite conceivable. The case is made that a very long time ago, human beings were much more peaceful, spiritual, healthy, and technologically advanced - in a sustainable way- than we are today. What if the function of the pyramids was never to be "tombs" for ancient pharaohs? What if they were built for a very different purpose, not by slaves, but by citizens who valued their function so much that they willingly participated in their construction?
Watching this series has provided me with a perspective of how today's world (war, poverty, fear) fits into a much larger picture, and explains why the end of the Mayan calendar (December 21st, 2012) points us all toward a different, and much better, future.
The cinematography is beautiful. I could watch these episodes again and again. Bravo!"

"Lo-fi but well worth watching, featuring alternative researchers like John Anthony West, Robert Schoch, John Burke, John Major Jenkins, etc. If you're interested in why the pyramids and temples of Upper Egypt were built where they were you should also check out Robert Bauval's book "The Egypt Code."

Thinking clearly about history

"I was fascinated by the gentle and beautiful way this 5-part series made our accepted ideas about history look tired and illogical. What a wealth of subject matter! From astronomy to geology, archaeology and linguistics - this is true holistic thinking, searching for the truth without any axes to grind or careers to build. I keep finding more information as I watch over again. I am beginning to see history in a much larger sweep of time. The philosophy that everything on earth is a mirror of the heavens and that we are all one is revolutionary in terms of Western thought. The exquisite music and photography makes this a joy to watch."
Alright, could have been better but still worth it

"Pre-ordered this after hearing the author talk about it on Coast to Coast AM... sounded like an AWESOME dvd, when it arrived I popped it in and found myself wanting more. While it has some interesting stuff, it just wasn't all the hype I had been led to believe and has lots and lots of un-proven, un-founded, somewhat out there theory. Still worth watching though for another point of view on some ancient ruins."
