I AM HERE. Anaxylabis.
Let me tell you about the great pyramid of Gizeh. I want to do so in
detail, as I was its designer. I built it under the direction of the
great Egyptian king, Monyabasis the Great, who lived many centuries
ago, before Rameses, who is credited with its construction.
I know that mankind has no records which tell of the reign of this
monarch, but such records did exist. In them was contained the
history and description of the occasion which called for the
building of this great pyramid.
These records were destroyed long before the present extant
histories of the world were written—long before the Book of the Dead
was written, and long before any of the present kingdoms of earth
had their beginnings. Centuries and centuries have passed since that
time, and no man has knowledge of what was then the condition of the
human race or, as I should say, speaking for myself, of the race
that inhabited the region of what you call the Lower Nile. We were a
race of a great intelligence, and of what you would now describe as
a wonderful civilization. Many of our arts and sciences disappeared
from earth and have never been rediscovered, and may never be, for
that race no longer has communication with the present race.
I came tonight because I saw pass me by wonderful spirits of light
and beauty, evidently bent on some great mission. I followed them
and found myself with you. Listening to the communications which
they gave you, I found that there came to me a desire to write also.
Well, as I listened, I soon saw that the communications were written
in a language different from my own, and that you only understood
that language, and that I must write in that language to make myself
understood. So, I commenced at once to learn it and I learned it in
the short space of time that I listened to them in their
communications. This may seem impossible to you, but I can read the
thoughts of spirits and men without difficulty. And as all thoughts
in the spirit world require no language such as you understand, I
soon found that I could clothe my thoughts in your words, as I am
(I find your explanation rather difficult to understand.)
Well, I know it may not be very satisfactory to you, but it is true.
I cannot more clearly explain it so that you may comprehend it.
Well, I have diverged or digressed from my intention of telling you
what the design of the great pyramid was, and I find that I have
written too long to attempt it now, as this is my first effort at
writing. So, I will postpone it until later, but I will come and
give you the explanation.
(How long ago did you live on earth?)
I don’t know in years, but when the Egyptian Book of the Dead was
written I had lived as a spirit many thousands of years.
I must stop now and say good night.
