Recent research clearly shows what most historians and archaeologists have known for thousands of years. Buried at least 5 meters under the sand, lies a vast structure that would make any modern day building pale in comparison to it.
It is so big and complex that no man or expedition has been able to at least travel, let alone document half of it. Even more, not only the engineering level necessary for this achievement was amazing, but Herodotus described the walls being covered with beautiful art (which could be in fact secret alien information, maps or instructions ) every step of the way.
Taking all this into account, it should’ve been one of the greatest discoveries of mankind, but somehow only a handful of people know of it to this day, which leads skeptics to believe the underground labyrinth is filled with ancient knowledge we’re not supposed to uncover. Records of it were kept in ancient history and local people have been telling stories about it from generation to generation.
Herodotus visited the site in Roman times and was fascinated while wondering its vast length. He writes:
“This I have actually seen, a work beyond words. For if anyone put together the buildings of the Greeks and display of their labours, they would seem lesser in both effort and expense to this labyrinth… Even the pyramids are beyond words, and each was equal to many and mighty works of the Greeks. Yet the labyrinth surpasses even the pyramids.”—Herodotus (‘Histories’, Book, II, 148)
He says the site is: “situated a little above the lake of Moiris and nearly opposite to that which is called the City of Crocodiles.”
People who know of its existence think the tunnels and chambers contain invaluable information concerning the location and details of Atlantis, other ancient civilizations, world rulers previously unknown to us and history so old it would shake the foundation of society as we know it.
“When one had entered the sacred enclosure, one found a temple surrounded by columns, 40 to each side, and this building had a roof made of a single stone, carved with panels and richly adorned with excellent paintings. It contained memorials of the homeland of each of the kings as well as of the temples and sacrifices carried out in it, all skilfully worked in paintings of the greatest beauty.”
Centering his work around the description made by Herodotus and other known scholars of the time who visited the labyrinth, Athanasius Kircher, a native of Germany, made a graphical scheme describing the site.
Herodotus: “ It has twelve courts covered in, with gates facing one another, six upon the North side and six upon the South, joining on one to another, and the same wall surrounds them all outside; and there are in it two kinds of chambers, the one kind below the ground and the other above upon these, three thousand in number, of each kind fifteen hundred. The upper set of chambers we ourselves saw “
A mixed expedition of people from Belgium and Egypt searched for the site in 2008, and finally located it some 65 miles from modern day Cairo, not far from the Pyramid where Amenemhat the Third was buried. They found the structure, confirmed its existence, but no excavation was done whatsoever.
In 2008, some findings were made public during a media attended lecture at the Gent University in Belgium, but any further public exposure was put on hold by sanctions from the Egyptian National Security.
After waiting for more than 4 years for the Supreme Council to make any results of the expedition public, and being finally met with refusal, the expedition leader, Louis de Cordier, made a website and shared findings with anyone interested.
Industrial scale digging is needed to uncover more information, like the age of the structure, but the fact that government forces forbid further action makes many believe there might be more such sites around the globe.
When they first stumbled upon the labyrinth’s roof, at first, they thought it was only what remained of its floor, so there’s absolutely no knowledge of what it might sit on top of.
Extreme believers have launched theories that it could be a mothership waiting to take off, and the mysterious inscriptions on the walls are in fact instructions.
The only thing we know is we’re not supposed to know.
