Product Description

Product Description

*** The Great Pyramid is a copy of the K2 mountain ***

If the megalithic maps that Ralf has discovered are to be of any use in a quest for the mythical Hall of Records, then they need to be a little more detailed than a simple representation of continents. Luckily, the shaft angles inside the Great Pyramid - which was once brilliant-white and aligned with the cardinal points - do exactly this. And so Ralf embarked on a long trek into the high Himalaya. Strangely enough, what he found there was a giant snow-white pyramid aligned with the cardinal points - the mountain called K2.

Sequel to "Thoth, Architect of the Universe".

4.0 out of 5 stars Left out in the cold 8 Dec 2008
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Eagerly purchased the book and keenly awaited delivery. Author starts with well described atmosphere of K2; what follows is author's interpretation of all mathmatical dimensions of the various Egyptian pyramids, related causeways, geographic location on the global grid and of how they relate to the Hindu Kush, and the possible location of a hidden hall of records. The author follows in the footsteps of Dionysus and Alexander the Great, but he says he knows the actual location of X on the map, where they did not. The author leads us through his thoughts, his calculations, his theories, and finally his journey to the actual location............. but maybe I missed something, as the book then finishes (in the midst of the various appendices) as he is looking for the door in a similar location on the rock face of K2 to the door on the great pyramid itself. Maybe this is to be the subject of his next book?

I found the constant references, almost on every line, to his previous books irritating. If I had read the previous book, I didn't need the references, and if I hadn't read the book, the references were lost on me anyway.

All in all, the chase is more exciting than the finale; the reader is left out in the cold and unrewarded with the answer to the puzzle. Was the hall of records found or not? Maybe I'll just pop out to K2 (after all I now know the exact location), and see for myself. Anyone want to join me?

4.0 out of 5 stars Great read 28 Dec 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
At times the maths can make it long winded but it's worth persevering as the conclusions made are fantastically clear and alters your perception of history and the people involved.

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth the price for Alexander alone... 14 Oct 2007
By Raymond Blohm - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I have read (in detail) the four original Ellis books. Each one is fascinating in a different way, mainly because of Ellis' vaunted 'lateral thinking' mode.

Ellis posits that the Khufu (Great) pyramid is a map in stone of the world's landmass, and devotes a significant part of this book to a 'loner' quest to get as close to a supposed knowledge-vault at the base of K2 - delineated in the pyramid - as he can. This part of the book is akin to a 'go long' football throw.

(I have read a fair amount on pyramid theories, and - so far - the overall 'feeling' of the Khufu pyramid brought out in "The Giza Power Plant: Technologies of Ancient Egypt" by Christopher Dunn comes closest to my truth. I do not really believe in Dunn's actual 'power plant' mechanism, but his handling of the otherwise-obscure details of a 'purpose-built' pyramid rings very true. It is very emphatically not a tomb...)

To me, the real gem in K2 is Ellis' treatment of Alexander the Great. Alexander was an amazing man, who faced down one of the world's greatest (or at least most sizable) armies in it's own territory - and won, repeatedly. Then, rather than settling down into his spoils - one of the world's richest and most cultured countries - he basically took off into one of the planet's most barren and inhospitable areas: the ever-growing, mountainous foothills by the Afghanistan-Pakistan borders. (Interesting that Cheney/Bush,Sr patrols are scouting that region now, for you conspiracy buffs...) When he could go no further, only then did Alexander turn south into India.

Ellis does an excellent job of explaining this 'strange' behavior by weaving evidence that Alexander was actually on a purposeful quest to discover a 'God'-base or immortality-station disclosed by old-religion priests during his mysterious 'side-trip' to Siwa Oasis in Egypt. Since Alexander was obviously extremely intelligent and purpose-driven, he was unlikely to be 'rattling around' such an impoverished area with an entire Macedonian army. Ellis provides a plausible scenario for Alexander's presence there - and a good read, to boot.

(In my mind, the main question is whether the priests gave accurate information as best they could, or simply devised a plan to send Alexander [their conqueror] off as far away and long as they could...)

I recommend this part of the book highly, and look forward to any further facts coming to light on this issue.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not worth the paper 5 Sep 2007
By Animo - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I couldn't finish the book. Too much peripheral adventurism and little science. Ralph makes a big deal over certain geometric phenomena any good first year instructor would cover. The parallels between the chambers of the Great Pyramid and maping of the earth's mountains is intriguing. But devoting pages to Alexander's escapades for which no one has an explanation is useless filler. So is the detailed travelog incorporating the execution of a goat. In the end, Ralph doesn't find the Hall of Records because he is totally unprepared for investigating such in a glacial zone of K2. Doesn't speak well of planning and research. Save your money. There's nothing of any scientific value to learn, and the story telling really sucks.
