SECRETS OF THE GREAT PYRAMID

As with most of the great temples of antiquity, whoever built the Great Pyramid designed it on the basis of hermetic geometry known to a restricted circle of initiates.They had accurately measured the circumference of the planet in units of their own "earth-commensurate geographic foot" of which they placed precisely 3000 in the perimeter of the base of the Great Pyramid, making of it a scale model of the Northern Hemisphere, one by which they could orient themselves in space and time. Its precise location served as the prime meridian or GMT for their epoch. On it was based their accurate georgraphy of the heavens and the planet. They knew the length of the yea to several decimals, the specific density of the planet, the 26,000 year precession of the equinoxes, and the speed of light.
Robert F.Scott, commenting on his choice of SECRETS OF THE GREAT PYRAMID as the main selection of the Book of the Month Club's Library of Science, called it: "A lavish volume that matches the scale on which it is told. The author's presentation of the parade of physical and intellectual adventurers associated with the Great Pyramid, his superb craftsmanship, excellent narrative sense, and penetrating interpretation make this not only a totally admirable work but one that--like the Great Pyramid itself--will endure a long time to come.
"As an adventure book it is unique. In a strong suspenseful narrative, Tompkins recreates the adventures and explorations of the archeologists, treasure hunters, soldiers, scientists, and eccentrics who endeavoured to solve the secrets of the Pyramid, scaling it and measuring it over the centuries."
John Michell,the eminent British expert, believes such buildings as the Great Pyramid were built by men who knew something of the laws which govern the inter-galactic flow of energy and their application to the development of life on earth.
In a brilliant and original appendix, Professor Livio Catullo Stecchini, the world's prime authority on ancient mensuration, relates the geometry of the Great Pyramid to all the basic units of measures of antiquity.

ITALY BETRAYED
Italy's leading philosopher Benedetto Croce, named King Victor Emmanuel as the prime Fascist and his Field Marshall Badoglio as the prime economic benefactor of Fascism. Their dishonorable flight from Rome was a betrayal of the Germans, the Allies, and of Italy. Yet Churchill supported them in preference to loyal, honorable anti-fascists who contributed with their blood to the renaisance of Italy, liberating a hundred cities in the north before the arrival of the Allied armies.
