The Great Sphinx and the Younger Dryas
Here is a very-well-produced documentary by the Gaia YouTube channel, describing Schoch’s theory:
After explaining Schoch’s theory, the programme-makers then put forward the idea that the Great Sphinx was originally a lion, and that the human was created later, carved out of the existing animal’s head. This seems a very reasonable idea; the current human head is clearly out of proportion to the rest of the sculpture and looks to have been a later modification.
The programme makers then point out that the sculpture is aligned to point directly at the constellation of Leo at the Spring Equinox in the zodiacal Age of Leo, around twelve-and-a-half thousand years ago. Unfortunately, the programme does then drift into some speculation, with talk of portals and channelled messages from aliens etc. All of this is possible but there is no solid evidence to back it up, and so it is of no use when creating a scientific theory.
Fortunately, other scientific evidence from our past, when combined with Schoch’s theory, can create a new theory of the Sphinx’s purpose. As with the other theories on my website, such as the Great Pyramid and 2787 BC, the Sirius Red Controversy, the Greek Myths and the Ark of the Covenant, I’m going to combine solid scientific evidence and logic to create a possible solution to the mystery of the Sphinx. Here goes…
To start with, why did someone build the Great Sphinx? I think it's reasonable to first accept that the Great Sphinx was originally a lion, as its body is clearly that of a lion and it seems likely that its head has been modified. The question therefore becomes ‘Why would someone build a Great Lion?’
The idea that a civilisation that far back was using the zodiac isn’t that crazy an idea. We can see from the Dendera Zodiac and its strong links to Babylonian Star-Signs and Sumerian records that the zodiac has been in existence from at least the very beginning of recorded civilisationon Earth. It also seemed to have appeared, fully-formed, at the earliest era of recorded civilisation, indicating that it was an intact relic of an even earlier, lost civilisation.
The ancient civilisation who built the Great Lion may have worked out the same idea as LaViolette, that there is a cyclic galactic energy-wave process, the result of a continual creation of new matter and energy in our universe. They may then have realised that our Earth is catastrophically bombarded at the beginning of every Age of Leo, since Earth's precessional Great Year is synchronised with such galactic tsunami because its precessional movement has been entrained by the gravity wave that is emitted during each event, as described in LaViolette's book. In such a way, our celestial zodiac is therefore not just a time-marker, it’s a disaster marker. That ancient civilisation may therefore have known, ahead of time, that the Younger Dryas Impact Event was going to occur.
It’s therefore no surprise that the Gaia documentary reports that Schoch did detect a chamber under the Sphinx’s front paws. Unfortunately, it’s clear that the powers-that-be that control access to the archaeological sites in Egypt have no interest in the general public finding out what’s in there. According to the documentary, as soon as the Egyptian Authorities found out that Schoch had detected a chamber, they threw him off the site. This is in keeping with the way the Egyptian Authorities have restricted all access to specific areas of the Great Pyramid, such as its inner-ramp and hidden-chamber, that would tell us who truly built that structure and why. They have also restricted access to tunnels under the Giza site, which would also give us an understanding of the site's builders.
If the general public did gain access to the chamber under the Sphinx’s front paws, I think we’d discover both a record of an antediluvian civilisation and a warning. The warning would tell us that when the zodiacal clock ticked another half-cycle, at the dawning of the Age of Aquarius, another burst would hit us from the centre of our galaxy. For an explanation of why I worry that such a calamity could happen next year, please check out my Kali Yuga article and my Predictions of the Future article. Fingers-crossed, it won't but as they say, fore-warned is fore-armed.
