    The Sphinx was not built with quarried blocks like the pyramids and temples it guards, but carved out of the living bedrock. Its makers gave it a woman's head and the body of a lion. It is 66 feet high and an impressive 240 feet long. It has the most extraordinary expression, like a hundred Mona Lisas all rolled into one. And its eyes gaze forever at the distant horizon due east, at the Equinox Point, at something not of this world but beyond it...in the sky.

    The ancient Egyptians constantly referred to a remote "Golden Age" they called Zep Tepi, the “First Time” of Osiris, which they believed had long predated the Pyramid Age. Osiris was Orion, and the Great Pyramid had a shaft directed to Orion at the meridian. This astro-architectural language seemed to be spelling out, “Here is Osiris, in the sky when these pyramids were built…yet know too, that his origins are rooted in the “First Time”…but the “First Time” of what? How could the stars of Orion have a “First Time”?

    Well they can…and they do. Provided, of course, that you can read through the allegorical “language” of the ancients via the symbolic architecture and the related pyramid texts. Allegory, to put it in another way, is the “Q-Basics” of the master astronomers who designed the Gizeh complex. When the stars of Orion are observed on the meridian in the precise manner that the ancient Egyptian astronomers did over many centuries, they could not help noticing that these stars crossed the south meridian at different altitudes at different epochs. This, of course, is due to the phenomenon of the Precession of the Equinoxes. In short, the stars of Orion can be said to have a starting point or “beginning” at the nadir of their precessional cycle. Simple calculations show that this occurred in 10,500 BC...

    Could the ancient astronomers of the Pyramid Age have used their very clever “silent language” combined with the precession to freeze the “First Time” of Osiris – somewhat as the gifted architects of gothic cathedrals froze in allegorical stonework the “time of Christ?”

    In 1993 Graham Hancock investigated this issue. He was quick to realize the important implications this approach could have on the Sphinx problem. He had a hunch that the curious harking back to the epoch of 10,500 BC by the pyramid builders was an invitation by them to consider the actual age of the Sphinx. If this hypothesis was correct, then the Sphinx must be an “original” time-marker of that remote epoch, using a celestial tag valid for 10,500 BC. But which tag? What could the Sphinx be representing that was in the sky? Could this have something to do with the due east direction of its gaze toward the horizon?

    In his Fingerprints of the Gods, Hancock pointed out that the “First Time” date of 10,500 BC also denoted the beginning (or “First Time”) of the Age of Leo. This was when the constellation Leo would have risen heliacally (at dawn before the Sun) on the day of the Vernal Equinox (March 20). This event brought the constellation to rest due east, thus in perfect alignment with the Sphinx. In other words, the Sphinx was made to look at her own image in the horizon – and consequently at her own “time.”

    Hancock pointed out that 10,500 BC was no random date. It precisely denoted another beginning…that of Orion-Osiris defined on the ground with the pattern and alignments of the nearby Pyramids. Could it be possible that some blueprint was put into motion in 10,500 BC with the making of the Sphinx, then to be completed much later by the builders of the Pyramids?

    As 10,500 BC was the beginning of the Age of Leo, and the zodiac signs move backward in the “Precession of the Equinoxes,” the building of the Sphinx denoted the time when the precession was changing, i.e., going from the Age of Virgo to the Age of Leo (an astrological age=2160 years). This is why the body of the Sphinx is that of a lion (Leo the Lion) and the head is that of a female (Virgo the Virgin). Thus we have the ancient Egyptians of Africa acknowledging the Precession of the Equinoxes by building the Sphinx, one of the true wonders of the world, in honor of their civilization going from the Age of Virgo to the Age of Leo in 10,500 BC…certainly their “First Time.”

    We are now in the dawning of the Age of Aquarius, the sign opposite Leo. In other words, the Precession of the Equinoxes has come exactly halfway from the dawning of the Age of Leo that occurred 10,500 years ago!

    The Mystery of Horus of the Double Horizon was finally imaged in the great Sphinx of Gizeh, which was cut out of the solid rock by man as a representative image of Horus as the god Hark-Makhu. On the stele of Tahtmes IV it is called the Sphinx of Khepra, the very mighty, the greatest of the spirits and the most august. Kheper is a form of Tum=Harmakhis, or Atum-Harmakhis, the solar form of the god of the double horizon in the previous form of the cult. Now he becomes the god in Spirit, the one god living in truth, the sole power that was worshipped as eternal. This is the greatest spirit represented by the Sphinx of Khepra (the transformer). We learn from the ritual that the mystery of the Sphinx originated with the mount of earth as the passage, or place of passage, of burial and re-birth for the solar god. The stele of Tahtmes informs us that the Sphinx was built to commemorate the sacred place of creation, of the first time, i.e. of a new creation. The fact is that the Sphinx was carved out of rock at the exact centre of the earth as a lasting witness to that sacred place of creation or beginning which goes back to the domain of Set and to the days of the masters of Ker or the figure of the primitive Abyss or Void.

    The Great Sphinx, as keeper of the secrets, is couched when the gate of the fair exit was in the lion sign, and the gate of fair entrance was in Aquarius, the water sign that is figured over the abyss of source on the celestial globe. The Sphinx, then is a monument which was made by these great builders as a figure of the Double Horizon, and of the duality of Har-Makhu. It was erected on the spot where the place of conjuction was at the point of precxessionin the lion sign and was assigned to Atum-Harmachis or Har-Makhu. Harmachis entered the Sphinx at sunset in the West, or hinder-part and was born in the East as Horus of the fore-part, lion-faced.

    The Sphinx is female in the hinder-part and male in front. It is a compoind image of the mother-earth and the young god whom she brought forth upon the horizon of the ressurection. In the picture taken from the tomb of Rameses IV "Aka-Nefer" (Fair entrance) is written at one end, and "Par-Nefer" (Fair exit) at the other. The ancient Kamite name for the Sphinx is Akar. This was also a name for the hollow of the underworld. Thus the passage through the mount of the earth, imaged as the Cow, was followed by the passage through Akar, the Sphinx, which was built for the god Har-Makhu.

    The ritual says, in speaking of the character of the newly risen solar god: "I am the offspring of yesterday, the tunnels of the earth have given me birth and I am revealed at my appointed time in the coming forth to-day". It is said that the very bones of the deities quake as the stars go on their triumphant courses through the tunnels of Akar (Pyramid Text, Teta, 319). The speaker is in Akar, which is represented by the goddess Akerit, because it was the place of buria and re-birth.

    Renouf says that to understand the nature of Akar we must imagine a tunnel (oblong) starting from the spot where the sun sets extending through the earth as far as the sun rises. Each end of the tunnel has a sphinx-like form.

    If we take the signs in the circle of precession, the two Lions correspond to the duality of Atum-Horus i.e. Atum-Ra, Atum-Iu.

    Basically the Sphinx was an image created by man symbolical of the Mount of Earth, for the passage of Horus as Har-Makhu, or Atum-Harmachis, for crossing from the Western to the Eastern Horizon, through the body of the Sphinx. You can also find this same depiction in a Mayan representation of the Sphinx that has been found.
