In addition to the description he gave for the ancient Nile River, Edgar Cayce also said that the Sphinx was built 12,500 years ago. This date is much earlier than that given to us by leading Egyptologists, who claim it was completed approximately 4,500 years ago. Once again, the skeptics had to be laughing over this discrepancy. How dare a psychic challenge the scientific conclusions of world experts? Well, the laughter is dying out one more time.
In 1989, John West, a distinguished scholar, proposed that the Sphinx was a lot older than 4,500 years. It seems the weathering patterns and erosion lines on the Sphinx’s body suggested a wearing away of the its magnificent body, not by wind-blown sand as was originally thought, but by rain water... a lot of rain water. Even more compelling is the fact that the erosion patterns run up and down, not across the deeply weathered Sphinx. It was simple. Wind does not cause vertical lines. Water does.
West teamed up with Professor Robert Schoch, a highly respected geologist at Boston University to support his theory. Sure enough, after extensive study, Professor Schoch conservatively estimated that the Sphinx was built 7000 to 9000 years ago. Geologists know that prior to and during that period of time, Egypt was not the dry desert it is today and that heavy rains pelted that part of the world… hard enough and long enough to cause the vertical erosion marks on the Sphinx’s body. They also know that these same heavy rains stopped falling thousands of years before the time Egyptologists claim the Sphinx was built.
Schoch and West presented their findings to the Geological Society of America where several hundred geologists agreed with the logic of their findings and found strong support for their conclusions. Again, we have emerging evidence that the statements made by Edgar Cayce should not be ignored.
I purposely put these examples of Edgar Cayce’s psychic abilities in at this time because of several reasons. First, what are the odds of someone making statements about the Nile River or the Sphinx as he did and, then, approximately forty years later, have astronauts, scientists and scholars make discoveries which begin to support it? Surely, the chances of these being random guesses on Cayce’s part are astronomically small. That is why I pay attention to what he has to say. Second, it tends to make his statements about the origins of man more believable and not as outrageous as they might appear. Finally, what he had to say about the final years of Atlantis and his reference to an extraterrestrial presence may not seem too far fetched.
These findings are also very unsettling for those who have already convinced us that they hold all the answers to the origins of mankind and who we are. Why? Because they have taught us that 7000 to 9000 years ago we were nothing more than primitive bushmen still trying to figure out how many toes we had on our feet. If the Sphinx was built prior to or during that same period of time, a serious contradiction arises. They know this and they are beginning to show their annoyance. Why? Because these same experts will now have to convince us that Cro-Magnon Man designed and carved the massive Sphinx out of stone using his sticks and primitive stone tools… or change their story about mankind.
Going back to the early years of Atlantis strange things continued to happen. Consider the following reading Cayce gave for an individual who had a previous life during that same period of time:
"in Atlantean land before Adam - timekeeper for those who were called things or servants or workers of the people - entity felt need of change or reform so that every individual would have the right of choice or freedom - felt desire to improve the conditions for worker - felt need of God’s hand in what evil or Satan had brought in the earth. (5249-1)
What were these "things" that Cayce referred to? He said that they lived side by side with the Atlanteans throughout their history. In other readings, he refers to them as "automatons" and, apparently, they were nothing more than slaves or living machines who were described as follows:
entities that were then the producers, or the laborers, the farmers or
the artisans, or those who were in the positions of what we would call
in the present just machines…"
Where did these "things" come from? Were they genetically engineered at some point in the past? Did the Atlanteans form them? Were they a less evolved form of modern man? Were they hybrids formed between the Atlanteans and Neanderthal man? Or were they clones developed by a process that was not yet fully perfected? Unfortunately, Edgar Cayce was never asked these questions.
Cayce goes on to say that, over thousands and thousands of years, the Atlanteans developed into a highly advanced civilization, during which there was a constant struggle between the Sons of Man who preferred a life of materialism and the Sons of God who were spiritually oriented (its possible that these two groups were the "sons of darkness" and the "sons of light" referred to in the Dead Sea Scrolls).
He also makes reference to Atlantean airplanes, lasers, underwater boats, advanced weapons of destruction and other forms of high technology. During that same period of history, the "things" or "automatons" became a key issue of morality between the Sons of Man and the Sons of God. Eventually, the Sons of Man won out. Over time their kind gave in to the temptations and evils of materialism by losing sight of their true spiritual nature and taking unfair advantage with our planet. Ultimately, the misuse of technology and machines of destruction, the lack of spiritual balance in their lives, and the abuse of the environment ended in the cataclysmic destruction of Atlantis, the last stage of which occurred approximately 12,500 years ago. This is a key date that keeps emerging time and time again in our planet’s history… and we will discover why later on.
Cayce also said that between 28,000 B.C. and 10,000 B.C., some of the inhabitants of Atlantis spread out in several directions during the final stages of its destruction. One large group headed to the western reaches of North America; others went to South America, Central America and Mexico, some of whom became the Mayans. When they arrived at these western locations, they were greeted by… other humans! Where did these humans come from? Cayce said they originally came from the Pacific area of Lemuria. Over time these two groups of people went on to form blends or mixtures of some of the races that have evolved up through current times. Where did the human inhabitants of Lemuria come from? Were they a part of the five races Cayce referred to? Possibly so.
The other group of Atlanteans headed eastward in the direction of Egypt, North Africa, France, Spain, Portugal and Britain just before the final sinking of this great continent. Consider the following life reading Cayce gave for another individual:
in Atlantis during periods of the breaking up of the land. Set sail
for Egypt, but ended up in the Pyrenees in what are now Portuguese,
French and Spanish lands. In Calais may still be seen the chalk cliffs
of the entity’s followers as attempts (were made) to create a temple
activity for the followers of the Law of One. First to establish a
library of knowledge in 10,300 B.C. in what later became Alexandria in
What did the Atlanteans find in Egypt? More humans!… and, their darker skinned neighbors were far more primitive in terms of culture and spiritual development. In a short period of time, the superior Atlanteans took charge of everyday life in Egypt. Under the leadership of an individual called Ra-Ta, a wise, spiritual priest, who Cayce says was himself in a former life, Egypt went through a golden age of growth and development during which the Sphinx and the Great Pyramid at Giza were built. Who were the primitive humans discovered by the Atlanteans? Were they Cro-Magnon Man? Maybe so.
Throughout the golden age, a Temple of Beauty and Temple of Sacrifice were established for medical, educational and spiritual purposes. It was in these institutions that the "things" or "automatons" were treated to put them on a par with existing humans at that time. Cayce described it as follows:
"…These bodies gradually lost, then, feathers from their legs… many lost hair from the body, gradually taken away. Many began to lose their tails, or protuberances in various forms. Many paws or claws were changed to hand and foot, so that there might be more symmetry to the body. Hence… the body became more erect, better shaped to meet the various needs." (294-149)
Eventually, the golden age gradually declined over many generations and reached a low point between 7000 and 9000 years ago.
I’ve included Cayce’s statements about the "things" and the medical treatment they received because it suggests that a form of genetic engineering may have been used by the scientifically advanced Atlanteans to correct the physical abnormalities of the "automatons." As mentioned, Edgar Cayce reminded us that whole civilizations reincarnate in order to heal past karma. The parallels between the way of life in Atlantis and what is going on today are striking and are hard to ignore. We are a technologically advanced civilization, with weapons of mass destruction. We have abused our environment. Genetic engineering is an every day event, cloning of animals is spreading, there is constant talk about cloning humans and two distinct groups of individuals are emerging on our planet these days… the materialists and spiritualists. Hopefully, we can tip the scales and get it right this time around. If not we’ll have plenty of chances to do it over again.
Cayce summed up our past very well when he said "Man’s origin was as a spirit, not a physical body. These souls projected themselves into matter, probably for their own diversion, interrupting an evolutionary pattern then going on in the Earth.
Through the use of his creative powers for selfish purposes, man became entangled in matter or materiality to such an extent that he nearly forgot his divine origin and nature."
There are two other statements made by Cayce that cannot be ignored because of their enormous implications surrounding the origins of man. Both are on the verge of being verified. One has to has to do with the statement Cayce made about the location of Atlantis. Over the past twenty years or so several different research groups have visited the area around the island of Bimini searching for underwater structures, artifacts and ancient ruins which could be linked to the lost continent of Atlantis. To date, a number of interesting discoveries have been made such as large stones which seem to have artificial rather than natural right-angled edges or evenly rounded corners… suggesting they were man made. In addition, other physical structures were found that strongly hint at being the remnants of architectural remains.
Another group of researchers are expected to continue the underwater search around mysterious Bimini during the summer of 1998. Any definitive discovery linking this area of the world to an ancient civilization such as Atlantis would have the same impact as that of the Sphinx. And if this isn’t enough, in March of 1995 a diver discovered what appears to be the ruins of another ancient culture off the southern coast of Okinawa. This finding has sparked a great deal of interest because some people are suggesting that it could be part of the lost continent of Lemuria. Needless to say, there is more research going on at this site.
The other statement Cayce made is that the secrets surrounding the origins of man would be found near the Sphinx, in a "Hall of Records," that contains the entire teachings of Atlantean history. Interestingly, ancient Egyptian texts also mention a similar hiding place, which they call the "Chamber of Archives" or "The Hall of Records." Where is this hidden chamber supposed to be? According to Cayce, in the vicinity of the Sphinx’s right paw.
Towards that end, there has been a lot of research done over the past 25 years by individuals and groups who have had varying degrees of success trying to locate this underground chamber using sophisticated ground penetrating radar, drilling and excavation. A number of anomalies suggesting hollow spaces deep in the ground around the Sphinx’s paw, have been found. Unfortunately, it has been the leading Egyptologists who have stymied follow-up research. Why? Because they are afraid something will be found that will upset the way they have defined the world for us. In essence, they are afraid of the truth. But, according to Cayce, the truth is going to be uncovered sometime around the year 2000. Will he be right again? My guess is that he will be.
We’ll close with Edgar Cayce by citing a reading he gave for one of his patients, who evidently lived during the times of the Mayans. I’d like to call the readers attention to the last phrase of this message because it sets the stage for the continuing story of mankind’s origins and the broader implications surrounding them. In trance Cayce said:
"It was just before that period when those as from the east had come, and there were the beginnings of the unfoldments of the understanding that there were other portions of the same land, or those that were visiting from other worlds or planets…" (1616 - 1:27)
It would seem that "those as from the east" were the Atlanteans who had migrated westward and eventually became the Mayans. But, far more interesting was his mention of "those that were visiting from other worlds or planets?" Clearly, this indicates that the "visitors" came from places other than planet Earth. That would make them extraterrestrials. Would it not?
