TOPIC

ANCIENT EGYPTIAN COSMOGONY

THE ORION CONNECTION AND THE

EGYPT CODE

BIOGRAPHY

ROBERT BAUVAL is a Civil Engineer

by profession, who dedicated

over 20 years to the study of the

architectural wonders of Ancient

Egypt. He is well known for the ORION

CORRELATION THEORY (OCT), which he

co-authored with Adrian Gilbert and

published in 1994 under the book

title THE ORION MYSTERY. This proposes

a relationship between the Egyptian

pyramids of the Giza Plateau and the

alignment of stars forming what is

called the Belt in the constellation

of Orion. The controversy behind

this theory is that the pyramids are

aligned to Orion’s Belt the way it

looked 12,500 years ago, based on

modern astronomy calculations. The

OCT has now been accepted as one

of the preferred alignment theories

by many scientific bodies worldwide

who have noted the astronomical

evidence at hand. The theory

was also used in the Hollywood

blockbuster “10,000 B.C.” in relation

to beginning of the construction of

Robert Bauval

the Giza structures.

Robert Bauval has since become

an authority in Egyptian cosmogony

and has made further discoveries

on the celestial alignment of

other structures throughout Egypt,

some of which were published

in SECRET CHAMBER (1999) and

in his 2006 release THE EGYPT

CODE, thus revolutionising the

traditional Egyptology approach to

architecture, design and alignment

of the constructions of the Ancient

Egyptians. He has also co-authored

with Graham Hancock the books

KEEPER OF GENESIS (also known as

MESSAGE OF THE SPHINX) in 1996 and

TALISMAN: SACRED CITIES, SECRET FAITH

(2004).

TOPIC

THE MYSTERY OF THE SPHINX AND

OTHER MEGALITHIC STRUCTURES

HOW OLD ARE THEY? THE

GEOLOGICAL EVIDENCE OF EXTREME

ANTIQUITY

BIOGRAPHY

DR. ROBERT M. SCHOCH, a full-time

faculty member at the COLLEGE OF

GENERAL STUDIES at BOSTON UNIVERSITY

since 1984, earned his Ph.D. in

geology and geophysics at YALE

UNIVERSITY. He also holds degrees in

anthropology (B.A) and geology (B.S.)

from GEORGE WASHINGTON UNIVERSITY.

Dr. Schoch has been quoted

extensively in the media for his

pioneering research recasting

the date of the Great Sphinx of

Egypt using geological analysis,

as well as for his work on ancient

cultures and monuments in such

diverse countries as Peru, Bosnia,

Egypt, and Japan. Dr. Schoch’s

research has been instrumental

in spurring renewed attention to

the interrelationships between

geological and astronomical

phenomena, natural catastrophes,

and the early history of civilization.

Dr Robert M. Schoch

Dr. Schoch has appeared on many

radio and television shows and is

featured in the documentary THE

MYSTERY OF THE SPHINX. He has also

been invited repeatedly to speak at

CPAK, the prestigious CONFERENCE ON

PRECESSION AND ANCIENT KNOWLEDGE.

Dr. Schoch is the author or coauthor

of both technical and popular

books, including the trilogy with

R. A. McNally: VOICES OF THE ROCKS:

A SCIENTIST LOOKS AT CATASTROPHES AND

ANCIENT CIVILIZATIONS (1999), VOYAGES OF

THE PYRAMID BUILDERS: THE TRUE ORIGINS

OF THE PYRAMIDS FROM LOST EGYPT TO

ANCIENT AMERICA (2003), and PYRAMID

QUEST: SECRETS OF THE GREAT PYRAMID

AND THE DAWN OF CIVILIZATION (2005).

Dr. Schoch’s most recent book

publication is THE PARAPSYCHOLOGY

REVOLUTION: A CONCISE ANTHOLOGY OF

PARANORMAL AND PSYCHICAL RESEARCH

(compilation, and a hundred pages

of commentary, by Robert M. Schoch

and Logan Yonavjak; 2008). His

books have been translated into

numerous languages and distributed

around the world. He is also the

co-author of an environmental

science textbook used in universities

across the United States. He has

contributed to numerous magazines,

journals, and reviews on geology and

TOPIC

THE LOST KINGDOM OF YAM AND

THE EGYPTIAN SAHARA MYSTERIES

(WORLD PREMIERE)

BIOGRAPHY

Born on October the 23rd, 1974 and

a graduate of the AMERICAN UNIVERSITY

OF CAIRO, MAHMOUD MARAI, is a former

Chemistry professor who is now a

dedicated DESERT EXPLORER. He is the

co-discoverer of the “YAM INSCRIPTIONS

who have led to the historical theory

of the LOST KINGDOM OF YAM. Since

1998 Mahmoud Marai has travelled

and explored extensively the Great

Saharan Desert and in particular

the Libyan Desert, also known as

the Western Desert of Egypt, an

extremely perilous geographic zone

where very few human beings dwell.

He has 42 published articles

about his exploits in the deserts of

Egypt, Libya, Sudan, Niger, Algeria

and Jordan. In 2004 he finally

decided to give up teaching entirely

for his passion for the desert and for

exploration. He began organising,

leading and professionally guiding

expeditions to the Libyan Desert. In

the course of the past four years he

has lead several prominent and

Mahmoud Marai

record-breaking expeditions covering

large areas in remote deserts and

often accompanied by renowned

professionals such as the German

explorer Carlo Bergmann and the

Swiss photographer Mr. Hardy

Boeckli.

In 2003, Mahmoud Marai and

friends discovered “NOURS CAVE” or

better now known as the “HASSANIEN

CAVE” high in altitude, 1234m, in the

majestic Mountain of Uwienat. This

was to be the first pre historic rock

art cave to be discovered at such

elevated altitude and this opened

the gate for others to explore and

discover more sites in the high

altitudes of the Uwienat.

In March 2007, Hardy Boeckli and

Mahmoud Marai accompanied by

Hassan, a Chadian companion,

climbed to the summit of the

Uwienat Mountain and in the

process Boeckli found a series of

new, previously undiscovered sites

at an altitude of about 1450m. This

lead to the proposal of the “VERTICAL

TRANSHUMANCE THEORY” of the Uwienat

Mountains.

In November 2007, Mark Borda and

Mahmoud Marai made the most

sensational discovery in the Western

Desert of Egypt. They discovered

the “YAM INSCRIPTIONS” 700km

West of Abu Simbel. The discovery

is composed of hieroglyphic

inscriptions dating from Middle

Kingdom that mention the mythical

KINGDOM OF YAM”, a Cartouche of a

Pharaoh and a picture of a seated

King. This discovery may force to rewrite

the early phase of Pharaonic

history by proving that the ancient

Egyptians travelled much further

than previously thought and also,

more importantly, may convey that

the Ancient Egyptians were aware

of their ancestral origins from the

Sahara. The controversy around this

discovery is the extreme remoteness

of its location and unlocks a series

of questions as to how the Ancient

Egyptians might have reached

these parts of the continent. With

regards to the LOST KINGDOM OF YAM,

the mystery that revolves around it is

its yet unchartered location. Recent

findings may provide certain clues to

the enigma.

TOPIC

THE ORIGIN MAP – THE KNOWLEDGE

OF ASTROPHYSICS IN HUMAN PREHISTORY

BIOGRAPHY

THOMAS BROPHY has a Ph.D. from the

UNIVERSITY OF COLORADO and was a staff

research scientist at the LABORATORY

FOR ATMOSPHERIC AND SPACE PHYSICS

OF BOULDER. He also worked with

NASA on interplanetary spacecraft

projects and was a NATIONAL SCIENCE

FOUNDATION exchange scientist with

the UNIVERSITY OF TOKYO for the JAPAN

SPACE PROGRAM. His work focused on

the application of first principles of

physics in planetary astrophysics,

developing novel solution methods

for the Boltzmann equation. As

a member of one of NASA’s

Voyager II spacecraft instrument

teams, he developed theoretical

understandings for data from the

outer planets (Jupiter, Saturn,

Uranus, Neptune), especially

planetary rings and planetary

dynamics. He was also involved

in defining science goals for future

space mission instrumentation. He

devised a novel method of testing

fundamental theories of planet

Dr Thomas Brophy

formation by searching for extrasolar

debris, which was reported by

NATURE magazine. Those interests

in general fundamental theory, and

experience teaching at the University

level, led Dr. Brophy to broader

studies involving the non-calculable

and immeasurable aspects of the

universe, and Integral philosophy.

These Integral studies, together with

formal practice of contemplative

traditions, led to his book THE

MECHANISM DEMANDS A MYSTICISM

and subsequent publications at

kenwilber.com. He also authored

presentations on Integral theory

and psychospiritual growth. He

is the former DEAN OF THE CALIFORNIA

INSTITUTE FOR HUMAN SCIENCE, a

graduate school and research

center dedicated to integrating

the pyschospiritual and scientific

worldviews. Recombining Integral

philosophy with astrophysical

dynamics conducted him to his

studies of the astro-archaeology of

pre-historic and proto-historic Egypt.

These studies have led to work on

the origin and calibration of the

Zodiac, and intriguing evidence for

the importance of “ZODIAC AGES” in the

mind of early human cultures.

Some of this is contained in his book

THE ORIGIN MAP.

He has also worked in the IT/

telecommunications industry, and

found application for fundamental

dynamics calculation techniques in

gaming and investment theory. He

now teaches Integral philosophy,

physics, and archaeoastronomy

as well as being the proprietor of

an investment and IT consulting

business. He has published peer

reviewed scientific articles in

premier journals including ICARUS,

MEDITERRANEAN JOURNAL OF ARCHAEOLOGY

AND ARCHAEOMETRY, IEEE JOURNAL, SCIENCE.

Dr Brophy has been a featured

presenter at numerous scientific

conferences in the United States,

Europe, Japan and New Zealand.

He will be presenting about

recent developments in the astroarchaeology

of PRE-DYNASTIC EGYPT,

including newly found evidences of

astronomy and astro-ceremonial

complexes in the Egyptian “western

desert” (Eastern Sahara). Regarding

this he has acquired the cooperation

of international satellite remote

sensing, and is co-authoring a

forthcoming book.

TOPIC

HUMAN BEINGS MILLIONS OF YEARS

AGO? THE UNPUBLISHED DISCOVERIES

OF MODERN ARCHAEOLOGY

BIOGRAPHY

MICHAEL A. CREMO is research

associate in history of archaeology.

He is a member of the World

Archaeological Congress since 1993.

His WAC3 paper “PURANIC TIME AND THE

ARCHAEOLOGICAL RECORD” was published

in the Routledge One World

Archaeology series volume Time and

Archaeology (1999), edited by Tim

Murray. He is also a member of the

EUROPEAN ASSOCIATION OF ARCHAEOLOGISTS.

Michael is famous for his book

entitles “FORBIDDEN ARCHEOLOGY”, coah

which provides evidence for

the extreme antiquity of human

beings on Earth and challenges

the traditional views on human

evolution. In a review in BRITISH

JOURNAL FOR HISTORY OF SCIENCE, Tim

Murray said the book “provides

the historian of archaeology with

a useful compendium of case

studies in the history and sociology

of scientific knowledge, which

can be used to foster debate

within archaeology about how to

Michael Cremo

describe the epistemology of one’s

discipline”. Cremo examines the

history of archaeology from the

standpoint of alternative worldviews,

particularly those with foundations

in ancient Indian wisdom traditions.

He states that over the past two

centuries researchers have found

bones and artefacts showing that

people like us existed on earth

millions of years ago. But the

scientific establishment has ignored

these remarkable facts because

they contradict the dominant views

of human origins and antiquity.

Cremo and Thompson challenge

us to rethink our understanding of

human origins, identity, and destiny.

FORBIDDEN ARCHEOLOGY takes on one of

the most fundamental components

of the modern scientific world view,

and invites us to take a courageous

first step towards a new perspective.

Michael Cremo is also a member

of the HISTORY OF SCIENCE SOCIETY,

and associate member of the

BHAKTIVEDANTA INSTITUTE specializing in

history and philosophy of science.

MAYA COSMOGENESIS AND THE

MAYAN CALENDAR END-DATE IN

2012

BIOGRAPHY

JOHN MAJOR JENKINS has been

researching Maya culture and

cosmology since the 1980s. His

pioneering books are based on

living and working with the highland

Maya and in undertaking careful

archeo-astronomical investigations

of ancient Maya sites. Recently

appointed as a National Fellow

member in the late Sir Edmund

Hillary’s prestigious EXPLORER CLUB,

Jenkins has taught at conferences

and universities throughout the

United States, as well as in Central

America, Mexico, Canada, England,

and Denmark. His work has been

featured on THE HISTORY CHANNEL, the

BBC, and the DISCOVERY CHANNEL. His

work is also being featured in a

PBS documentary called THE ANCIENT

SKYWATCHERS, currently in production.

A three-time participant in THE

CONFERENCES ON PRECESSION AND ANCIENT

KNOWLEDGE, John’s work focuses on

the astronomical achievements

John Major Jenkins

made by the Maya and other

cultures around the globe. His

books include Journey to the MAYA

UNDERWORLD (1989), TZOLKIN: VISIONARY

PERSPECTIVES AND CALENDAR STUDIES

(1992), MAYAN SACRED SCIENCE (1994),

GALACTIC ALIGNMENT (2002), THE PYRAMID

OF FIRE (2004), and UNLOCKING THE

SECRETS OF 2012 (2007). His 1998

book MAYA COSMOGENESIS 2012: THE

TRUE MEANING OF THE MAYAN CALENDAR

END-DATE IN 2012 AD is considered

to be a breakthrough in the effort

to reconstruct the ancient Maya

calendar and astronomy. John is a

frequent contributor to the INSTITUTE

OF MAYA STUDIES newsletter, the

academic AZTLAN discussion list, and

the UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS Mesoamerican

e-list group.

John Major Jenkins teaches classes

and gives presentations on many

different aspects of ancient science,

mathematics, mythology, astronomy,

calendars, and architectural

engineering. He has studied Persian,

Hindu, Egyptian, and Greco-Roman

traditions. The ancient Maya were

advanced in all of these arts, and

many new archaeological sites are

being found every year, in Mexico

and Central America. At sites like

Chichen Itza, Palenque, Takalik Abaj,

Tikal, and Izapa, new discoveries

are helping us to understand the

ancient Maya. Their sacred calendar

and their knowledge of the stars

and astronomical cycles is a focus

of John’s work, as well as what

the Maya people are doing today,

integrating their ancient ways with

the pressures of modern life.
