4.0 out of 5 stars A translation of Schwaller de Lubicz, but not a light read, 21 Feb. 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Serpent in the Sky: High Wisdom of Ancient Egypt (Paperback)
When I returned from my first trip to Egypt in May, 1998, I voraciously read everything I could get my hands on. Before I read Serpent in the Sky, I had viewed John's emmy-award-winning documentary, so I was prepared for excellence in thinking and new ideas about ancient Egypt. Although John West writes with great flair and articulation, his summarizing of Schwaller de Lubicz was tough going. West makes some good points of his own, but some of de Lubicz's theories are too esoteric for me. West acknowledges he's not a mathemetician and much of de Lubicz's theories are based on sacred geometry, and was beyond my scope as well. I found that the quotations on the sides of the pages detracted from the main body of work. It's very apparent that West thoroughly loves ancient Egypt and has devoted many years to study, discussion and leading tours there. I had the good fortune to be with him on a second tour to Egypt in Nov, 1998. I enjoyed the foreword by Robert Masters regarding Sekhmet, as I had some extraordinary experiences with Sekhmet myself both while I was in Egypt and when I returned. All in all, I would recommend reading Serpent in the Sky. John still leads tours to Egypt.

This is the way to go. There is more to "Stargate" (though Science-fact does not fit here), and its connection with the binary Star, Sirius. We need to look for the Planetary System closest to Sirius, in order to build a hypothesis on the Egyptian Phenomenon.
