The thesis he develops is remarkable. What if, he is asking, the Giza complex is a map, a map intended to last, say, 15,000 years, and therefore embedded in an indestructible architecture that literally screams to a future mankind for an explanation? The target of the map is that “hall of records,” the knowledge repository of that civilization for whom cutting, transporting and fitting 1300 ton blocks with incredible precision – that famous “megalithic architecture” - was child’s play. And a civilization that appears perhaps to have been totally obliterated via a global cataclysm circa 10,000 B.C. For Ellis, all this geometry, the Giza layout, the differing color and structure of the pyramids, the meridians, the extremely difficult to build causeway, etc., both mirror, simulate and point to a triangular region whose center is K2 with its surrounding peaks and glacial arms.
Along the way, we are treated to an interesting speculation on Alexander the Great. Why when after the battle of Issus, when Darius, the Persian army and his empire lay helpless before Alexander, ready to be totally destroyed, did Alexander swing east, to the priests of Egypt? And then, later, why take his whole army to this very region of the Hindu Kush? What is the nature of the legends of Dionysius and his fellow “gods” – well known to Alexander - who fought the same Indians, and reportedly worked wonders, literally moving mountains, in this area?
All in all, a great book, a thesis as well thought out as any of the others – actually more – and something that should be part of every pyramid-wonderer’s arsenal.
