I am writing this at 8:15 p.m. European time (Berlin) on Monday, September 16, i.e. one hour earlier than London and six hours time difference to New York City.
In about 7 hours (i.e. at 3 a.am here - at least on our televesion screens), there will apparently be shown the first attempt to send a robot camera through a hole drilled in stone in the Cheops pyramid's "ventilation shaft" to see what is in the secret chamber of the Cheops pyramid (see "Gantenbrink" on the internet for more
This could be one of the great sensations of history and science
- so do not miss it - although I do not know for sure if the actual
attempt of the robot camera to look inside the Secret Chamber is
live or is earlier in real time, so consult your local TV guides.

[Update "Sensational Megalithaic Wall", September 17, 2002]
Did you watch the opening of the secret chamber? If you did, I hope you put it on video. I did and I have been studying the videomaterial. I imagine that most of the scholarly world saw no sensation in the secret chamber and the stone wall found - but I find it is sensational - for reasons you will find below.
This material will be posted to some of my sites soon. In addition, I am uploading

THE SECRET CHAMBER OF CHEOPS - MEGALITH FOUND
WHAT HAPPENED ON SEPTEMBER 17, 2002 ?
On September 17, 2002, nearly 10 years after Rudolf Gantenbrink's robot discovered a stone slab (with copper and gypsum seals) at the end of the southern shaft of the Queen's Chamber in the Cheops Pyramid, a worldwide TV broadcast showed a new high-tech robot photographing what lay behind the stone slab at the end of the shaft.
WHAT WAS FOUND BEHIND THE STONE SLAB? A MEGALITHIC WALL !
What was found was an ancient megalithic wall or a megalith built into the wall across from the shaft-end stone slab, an ancient megalith which is a "boulder" carved with figures and itself
standing alone in a small apparently otherwise empty room, and seemingly blocking the way to another room possibly filled with informational or worldly treasures.
The result, analyzed here on the same day as the TV program, was a fantastic, enormous discovery, clearly binding the megalithic age with the Pyramids - unmistakably CONNECTING the megaliths and the pyramid builders. The importance of this development has not yet
been recognized by anyone else other than this author. Furthermore, the September 17, 2002, finding confirmed this author's singular analysis of the Secret Chamber as being related to the Westcar Papyrus and the Qumran Copper Scroll. We predicted a seal would be found - and a large "seal" of megalithic proportions has indeed been found, guarding another chamber in the Great Pyramid.
WHY IS A MEGALITH INSIDE A PYRAMID A SENSATION?
Why is this megalith (viz. megalithic wall) a sensation? Because it is made of rough, carved stone. The ancient pharaohs went to a great deal of trouble to make smooth stones for the building of the Pyramid, so why in the innermost secret sanctum of the Great Pyramid of Cheops do we find a rough megalith apparently guarding another secret room?
THE MEGALITH STEMS FROM A MORE ANCIENT ERA
The days of the megalith-builders - as shown by this author at Megaliths.net - centered around ca. 3117 BC, one kingdom or ca. 684 years prior to the building of the Great Pyramid of Cheops. The megalith in the Cheops Pyramid is much older than the pyramids. Does this mean that the Cheops Pyramid supplanted this ancient megalith at Giza? Did the Cheops Pyramid take its place? Was the calender "revised" due to precession - and was this the "revision" discussed in ancient documents by Gardiner and Erman? Surely it was so. The Cheops Pyramid replaced the megalith found in the secret chamber just uncovered. That is why it is there. We must of course
also ask: if an ancient megalith guards a room in the Great Pyramid, then it surely also guards something ancient - is this also the legendary Hall of Records? The future will tell.
WHY DID TODAY'S MAINSTREAM EGYPTOLOGISTS ERR?
Most past statements about the secret chamber made by "modern" mainstream Egyptologists have been proven wrong, wildly wrong. They did not know what they were talking about, and things have not gotten better for them after September 17, 2002. The reason for this is that the Egyptologists do not know or do not wish to accept the actual reason why the Great Pyramid was built - which was for geodetics and astronomy. Since the Egyptologists have little knowledge in these disciplines by training, they are as a group generally unprepared in any way to judge or analyze any of this new discovery and one should generally disregard their opinions on it. They carry no weight. Most Egyptologists are linguists, and nothing more. Except for perhaps Mr. Zahi Hawass, who is by heart and soul "The Keeper of the Pyramids", this is not an Egyptologist's expertise.
THE ANALYSIS BY ANDIS KAULINS - WHAT DOES IT ALL MEAN?
Being a good researcher means not to overlook things. While everyone has been concentrating on robots and stone slabs, no one has been looking at the obvious markings at the end of the shaft near the stone slab. These markings - in part clearly cup marks - as on many megaliths around the world - identify the stars to the North, West and East of the Queens Chamber shaft on the effective "date" of the building of the Cheops Pyramid, which is July 25, 2430 BC, when
there was a solar eclipse at the Summer Solstice point at sunrise (ca. 6 a.m.) - the time to which all data apply. [For a similar theory about the Cheops Pyramid, see the Egyptian Cosmology of Aymen Ibrahem.]
July 25, 2430 BC, 6 a.m. - Positions of the Stars
On July 25, 2430 B.C. starting at ca. 6 a.m. there was a solar eclipse over the Nile Delta at the Summer Solstice point. Looking north at this time one finds the North Celestial Pole in the tail of
Draco. In the East, there is a solar eclipse at sunrise below Chort and Zosma (Duhr) in Leo - this is represented by the importance of the Sphinx (Leo) and by the lion head found inscribed on the megalith in the room just behind the stone slab at the end of the southern shaft from the Queen's Chamber (see the graphic below). In the West, we find Andromeda and Pegasus. These positions are clearly marked on the stone blocks above and to the left and right of the stone slab at the end of the shaft. They tell us the stellar orientation perfectly.
See the graphic cheops1. gif or cheops1.tif showing the markings on blocks of stone above, left and right of the stone slab at the end of the shaft.
This stellar location matches the figures found inscribed on the megalith (viz. megalithic wall) found on September 17, 2002 opposite the stone slab at the end of the Cheops shaft. The megalith in entirety has the shape of a lion's head and of course has other figures carved on it in the interlocking fashion known for megaliths in the Neolithic era. Each half has a pharaoh's head, with the left head wearing the crown of Lower Egypt - the DESHRET - and the right head wearing the crown of Upper Egypt (Egyptologists' nonsensical P3 = PAR, i.e. Indo-Germanic, e.g. Latvian "OVER", German ÜBER).
This megalith marks the Milky Way at Cassiopeia and Cepheus (Cheops). In terms of the sky, "lower Egypt" consists of the stars outside of the Milky Way whereas "upper Egypt" includes the stars within the ellipse of the Milky Way. There is also a distinction in terms of day and night, explained below.
Various incorrect names are applied to the names of the crowns of ancient Egypt, one already discussed above. The name DESHRET for the crown of Lower Egypt is the same as Latvian DEZHURET meaning "direct, watch, especially night duty". That is why this crown was later written NT, i.e. "night". DESHRET has NOTHING to do with the color "red", contrary to what the Egyptologists allege. The name HDT for the crown of Upper Egypt is the same as Latvian VADIT or VADZIT which means "to lead, to guide, to watch over, applied to day duty". VADIT i.e. HDT has NOTHING to do with the color "white", contrary to what the Egyptologists allege - it applies rather to "daylight".
See in our files cheops2.gif or cheops2.tif, for a graphic showing the figures inscribed on the megalith (megalithic wall) across from the Stone Slab in the room discovered in the Cheops Pyramid on September 17, 2002. Next to that graphic is a picture made with Starry Night
Pro and showing the two crowns of Egypt in a heavenly context.
The Cheops Pyramid is Hebrew Qevia "calendric fixing". It is the calendric fixing one kingdom or 684 years after the start of the Old Kingdom which is equal to 18 x 19 x 2 = 684 years - as a predictive multiple of the Saros (18 years) and Metonic (19 years) lunar and solar cycles. As written long ago by Eusebius "it is all astronomy" and will continue to be astronomy when the next secret chamber is opened behind the megalith - though I am not certain that any additional chamber must exist. The megalith is the required record.

"Thanks, I'm a serious member. Last night's show on the Great Pyramid reminded

Your previous email makes many of the same points the book did, as to the
location of constellations when the pyramid was built and the purpose of the
shafts. All very interesting.

2. "Hello,What information! This is the most incredible and fascinating insight! I found it most fascinating and more exciting than anything imaginable. I was wondering if you had any pictures showing those marks that you mentioned as I was disapointed by the National Geographic picture. AllI could see was the rough stone with some cracks. I did not or am not trained to see some of the markings that you discussed. I am so glad to have read your amazing article which makes perfect sense. Why indeed would the Egyptians have a sealed off chamber to a large boulder in the middle of the pyramid. Why indeed!!!! Thank you forthe most astonishing observations. Cynthia Crowley"
LexiLine answer to Cynthia:
I do not have a program which would permit me to transport the video to the PC. Perhaps National Geographic will have a decent photograph online soon. Let me also say that I should have added the following to my previous observations: My use of the terms "megalithic wall", "megalith" or "boulder"should still be viewed with a bit caution until everything is really examined in full by Hawass and friends - they ARE experts at that kind of thing. It looks like a megalith on the photograph and looks like it is a roundish stone boulder, but you never know, it could be other material - we will have to wait until they develop robots to go up the shaft and actually touch the material, take sample scrapes and see what it is, how thick, if there is anything behind it, and so on. That will be quite exciting, I am sure. But if it is a megalithic stone - it is sensational.
[Update September 18, 2002 by Andis Kaulins regarding the Pharaoh crowns]The full name of the crown of Upper Egypt (the one that looks like a pawn in a chess game) is p3 shmty in current mainstream Egyptological transcription. (3 is a symbol used sort of like an "r"
and was adopted as a symbol by the Egyptologists to further confuse what is already a disastrous linguistics in Egyptology.)
p3 shmty is actually Indo-European,
which means "over the land".
That the Latvian comparable is correct is proven by a variant form of writing this hieroglyph, which has the crown sitting on top of the nb-hieroglyph - half a circle with the flat top upward - i.e. the land, earth. (See in this regard Betro's book on the hieroglyphs)

I am following the discussion on Cheops and the robot. I thought it was telling that when the live announcer asked "What are those markings on the stone" Hawass answered before the words were out of her mouth "Its just cracks in the rock". That was literally the end of the show. Where are the rest of the shots where you could actually see what was in there? Stay tuned for the sequel.

I looked at the symbol site - great site. Lots of new information, some good, some not so good - but do not throw out the baby with the bathwater.
As for what the robot photographed [in the Secret Chamber of the Pyramid of Cheops], it is singularly incredible that no photo of this is on the internet - I have looked at all the news agencies - there is nothing. I am a happy man to have made a video
at home so that I have something to work with.
The archaeologists again are trying to cover everything up and keep it for themselves.
For those of you on the list who do not know - a typical example of this was the Egyptian Turin Papyrus of Kings known as the "Turin Canon". When first found it was in near perfect condition. It came into the hands of an archaeologist who thought he could decipher it, and who then left it for many years in a drawer in his office so
that no one else could see or use it, and by the time other people got their hands on it - it was falling apart and greatly damaged, having to be pieced together from the thousands of scraps which remained. I have already pointed on my LexiLine website to several pieces of the Turin Papyrus which have been improperly pasted.
This is not an exception in archaeology and Egyptology. It is the rule.
Historically, the people in Egyptology and archaeology were adventurers, looking for THEIR buried treasure - and I suppose all are disappointed not to have found anything pecuniary in the secret chamber of Cheops - you can be sure the news media would have treated this all differently if they had found precious stones, gems, sapphires, diamonds, or gold and silver. As my father used to say, the Devil dances for a dollar.
What has happened in modern times is that the archaeologists have gone from adventurers to hoarders. Many are earning well from ancient artifacts, photos of such artifacts, exhibitions of such artifacts, etc., many of which artifacts were originally stolen goods.
The British Museum has 10 times more stuff disintegating in its cellars than are visible above ground. Some Egyptologists have safes at universities to keep their wares primarily for themselves. Other universities lock their Egyptology departments to visitors in order to keep non-insiders out.
When money is to be made from photos of their collections, it is often the books of the insiders and curators, who control the goods, who profit from the hoarded treasures. I am not really complaining - this is just the way the world works - but outsiders should be aware it works that way.
Do not be blinded by all the hype you read about academic search for truth. That is rare in mainstream academia in these fields. People write and publish what brings them chaired professorships, better salaries and honors - honors generally granted by commercial, educational and political vested interests. One does not write what
may cost you your job. So it is.
And those of us who are looking for that truth, independent of pecuniary gain, are a thorn in their sight. It has always been so and will always be so. But in the end, we always win. That is the fun part.
