After the Battle of the Pyramids in 1798, the French general Napoleon Bonaparte explored the Pyramid of Khufu all on his own. When he left the structure, he appeared rather distraught. His aide was worried, but Napoleon refused to say anything. Only many years later, in exile, did he reveal that he had received an ominous vision of his future in the pyramid.
In the 1930s, the English journalist Paul Brunton spent a whole night alone in the pyramid, reporting afterwards of uncanny experiences, and of an overwhelming realization of the immortality of his soul when lying down in Khufu’s sarcophagus.
The reports of these two men downright challenged me to get to the bottom of the matter. So I traveled to Egypt in 1988 and had myself locked up in the legendary pyramid for a night, just like Brunton. I thought I knew what I was getting myself into and was prepared for just about anything. But I didn’t, and I wasn’t. My Egyptian adventure ended with an unexpected shock that completely upset my view of the world.
I created this page to share what happened in Egypt back then and where it subsequently led me.
The shock I experienced and the findings from my investigations in Egypt and around the world ultimately prompted me to write LOST GOD — a sometimes frightening, philosophically explosive, apocalyptic sci-fi thriller that tells of the return of the techno gods and biblical giants.
