Whoever built these structures, possessed advanced mathematics, engineering and building techniques. Even with our modern equipment, we could not duplicate these enigmatic monuments.
With its base angles at 51 degrees 51 minutes. If you bisect this triangle and assign a value of 1 to each base, then the hypotenuse (the side opposite the right angle) equals phi (1.618..) and the perpendicular side equals the square root of phi. A circle is drawn with it's center and diameter the same as the base of the large triangle. This represents the circumference of the earth. A square is then drawn to touch the outside of the earth circle. A second circle is then drawn around the first one, with its circumference equal to the perimeter of the square. (The squaring of the circle.) This new circle will actually pass exactly through the apex of the pyramid.
A circle drawn with its center at the apex of the pyramid and its radius just long enough to touch the earth circle, will have the circumference of the moon.

Who Built the Great Sphinx?
The Great Sphinx is an iconic piece of history that’s just as remarkable as it is mysterious. From its enormous size to its intricate detail, it’s nothing short of an astounding architectural feat.
Who built the Great Sphinx and why? How, exactly, was such a large-scale and magnificent structure constructed? What is the significance of the Sphinx — a mythical creature with a lion’s body and a human face?
While there are plenty of questions, one thing is certain: The Great Sphinx offers no shortage of details to explore.
The Sphinx is NOT a solid monument in the inside
Yeah, while many believe the Sphinx is solid from the inside, experts from Japan found otherwise.
Scientists from the Waseda University found that south of the Sphinx are hollow parts on the ground and there are cavities ranging from 2 to 3 meters inside.
Furthermore, they also discovered a groove on the Sphinx body that extends beneath the ancient monument.
Researchers discovered that to the north of the Sphinx were similar grooves which indicate there could be a tunnel that leads underneath the Sphinx, connecting the southern and northern cavities.
Furthermore, researchers from Tokyo discovered that there are hollow cavities just in front of the paws of the Sphinx.
These alleged ‘room’s lead below the monument into unexplored parts.
Japanese scientists concluded that the sanctuary of the Sphinx contains more cavities below the Sphinx than were previously known. (Source) (Source) (Reference)
So if these cavities, tunnels, and chambers really do exist, why have we not explored them in more detail?
Why is it that whenever a similar discovery is made, some scholars prefer to ignore the findings instead of perusing their understanding?
In 1991 researchers performed another survey at the Sphinx. They confirmed the discoveries made in 1987 by researchers from the Waseda University.
Thomas Dobecki and John Anthony West explored the region surrounding the Sphinx using seismic refraction, refraction tomography, and seismic reflection.
They discovered subsurface cavities in front of the front left paw, and from the left paw back along the south flank.
The scientific data mentioned above can also be corroborated by a number of images — some of them extremely old — which show without a doubt that there are entrances and tunnels leading beneath the Sphinx.
These images are evidence of shafts and passageways leading towards unexplored chambers underneath the Sphinx.
Secrethistoy.wikia.com corroborates this story as the website suggests there is evidence of a large rectangular entrance on top of the hips at the back of the Sphinx.
All of this seems to be backed up in the book Message of the Sphinx, where authors Graham Hancock, and Robert Bauval state that the Egyptian government together with American archaeologists have blocked any investigations around and/or beneath the Great Sphinx, preventing anyone from locating the underground cavities and finding out what is located beneath the Sphinx and the Pyramids.
Oh and… did we forget to mention the fact that there is a great amount of evidence that suggests there was a SECOND Sphinx at Giza?
So if there is scientific evidence to support the idea that there are secret chambers beneath the Giza plateau, and images back up the entire story, why have we not explored these areas in more detail?
The secrets of the Sphinx – Built by a civilization predating the Egyptians?

The Great Sphinx of Giza has, since ancient times, attracted great interest among researchers and tourists alike. This majestic monument eternally gazing at the East, where the sun rises, has caused great curiosity since there is very little knowledge about it. Is the sphinx the product of the ancient Egyptian civilization? Or is it possible that this incredible monument was constructed by an ancient civilization much older than the Egyptian?
Around 1816 and 1818 Captain Giovanni Battista Caviglia performed excavations at the Sphinx and surrounding temples. Due to the proximity to the Pyramid of Khafre, the great sphinx was quickly linked to the figure of the pharaoh of the fourth dynasty, claiming that the face of the Sphinx actually is that of Khufu.
From that day until today, the idea that the Sphinx belongs to the time of Pharaoh Khufu has remained unchanged and mainstream archaeology has not been willing to suggest any other theories explaining the great Sphinx and its origin.
This majestic monument was carved from a single block of stone, yet there are no written documents that could tell us much about its origin or purpose. The only “written” evidence that exists from ancient times about the sphinx is that of Greek historian and geographer Herodotus, who does not mention that the pharaohs of the fourth dynasty (Khufu, Khafre and Menkaure) were the builders of the Sphinx, nor the Pyramids of Giza. Therefore, we can easily say that there is no written evidence that “its” creators were ancient Egyptians, there are indications however, that the great Sphinx could have been created much before the ancient Egyptians.
The ‘Inventory stella’ – Found at Ghiza by Auguste Mariette in the 1850’s, in the ruins of the Temple of Isis clearly states that Khufu restored the Sphinx. This points to the fact that the Sphinx was constructed much before Khufu and not by him as some suggest. These Stelle reads:
“Long live The King of Upper and Lower Egypt, Khufu, given life
He found the house of Isis, Mistress of the Pyramid, by the side of the hollow of Hwran (The Sphinx)
and he built his pyramid beside the temple of this goddess and he built a pyramid for the King’s daughter Henutsen beside this temple.
The place of Hwran Horemakhet is on the South side of the House of Isis, Mistress of the pyramid
He restored the statue, all covered in painting, of the guardian of the atmosphere, who guides the winds with his gaze.
He replaced the back part of the Nemes head-dress, which was missing with gilded stone
The figure of this god, cut in stone, is solid and will last to eternity, keeping its face looking always to the East”
French Egyptologist and Director General of Excavations and Antiquities for the Egyptian government, Gaston Maspero, who surveyed the Sphinx in the 1920s asserted that:
“The Sphinx stela shows, in line thirteen, the cartouche of Khephren. I believe that to indicate an excavation carried out by that prince, following which, the almost certain proof that the Sphinx was already buried in sand by the time of Khafre and his predecessors.”
The dream of Thutmose
According to legend, before he was proclaimed king, Thutmose IV fell asleep between the paws of the Sphinx and dreamt Hor-em-akhet-Atum-Khepri was actually his father and that he was destined to be pharaoh. The god promised Tuthmosis the throne if he removed the sand which covering the Sphinx. Tuthmosis agreed and kept his word. He became pharaoh and not only cleared the sand but promoted Ra-Hor-em akhet above Amon-Ra – heralding perhaps the rejection of Amun by Akhenaten in favor of the Aten, which was represented as a sun disk.
Interestingly, according to senior forensic expert Frank Domingo of the New York Police Department, using his own detailed measurements taken of the Sphinx, determined through forensic drawings and computer analysis that the face of the Sphinx and the face seen on signed statues of Khafre could not be one and the same person

Dating the Sphinx accurately, is it possible?
In the early nineties, John Anthony West began questioning the dating of the mysterious Sphinx. He analyzed the erosion marks on the surface of the majestic monument coming to conclusions that have been very difficult to assimilate. In collaboration with geophysicist Thomas Dobecki and geologist Robert Schoch of the Boston University, a thorough analysis of the limestone of the Sphinx was conducted, concluding that the erosion was the result of extensive rain. But when did it rain that much in Egypt? The answer would prove to be a key detail in the accurate dating of the Sphinx. According to experts, extensive rainfall could have occurred in ancient Egypt around 13000 years ago.
Even though there are numerous theories surrounding the great Sphinx, most of them have not been accepted by mainstream archaeology. Some theories even suggest that both the great pyramids and the Sphinx were once submerged under water. According to archaeologist Sherif El Morsi: “During one of the documentation of the ancient coastline, I almost tripped with a block of the second level of a temple,” said Mr. Morsi in an article published on the website Gigal Research. “To my surprise, the bump on the top surface of the block that almost tripped me was in fact an exoskeleton of a fossil of what appears to be a echinoid (sea urchin) which are marine creatures that live in relatively shallow waters.”
Sherif El Morsi suggests that the Giza plateau was once flooded by a surge. The temple site of Menkare in particular may have been a former lagoon when the sea level covered the Necropolis, the Sphinx, the complex of temples and other monuments of the area. According to El Morsi, the flooding, was quite significant, peaking at about 75 meters above current sea level and creating a coastline spanning to the Khafra enclosure near the Sphinx at the temple of Menkare.
Is it possible that the Sphinx was created by a civilization that predates the ancient Egyptian? Could it be that the Giza plateau was in fact flooded in the distant past? There are numerous mysteries surrounding both the Sphinx and the surrounding monuments, yet one thing has remained unchanged for centuries, the beauty that these majestic structures irradiate.

The secrets of the Great Pyramid of Giza: What you didn’t know about the Great Pyramid

Did you know that the curvature designed into the faces of the pyramid exactly match the radius of the earth? This is just one of the incredible features that most of us had no idea about.
The Great Pyramid of Egypt is without a doubt one of the most incredible ancient structures on the surface of the planet and rightly holds the title as one of the ancient wonders. It is an ancient monument that attracts millions of tourists and hundreds of researchers and scholars who study, analyze and research it.
While most scholars agree that the Great Pyramid was built by the ancient Egyptians somewhere between 2589 and 2504 BC as a tomb, there are others who do not agree with this theory suggesting that the true purpose of the Great Pyramid is much more mysterious.
What we have been told about Ancient Egypt and the Great Pyramid in school is very different from the reality. The truth is, there are dozens of incredible features about the Great Pyramid that most of us had no idea about until now. Here we present details about the Great Pyramid of Egypt that will surely change the way you look at this incredible ancient construction.
According to analysis, it is believed that the Great Pyramid of Giza has around 2,300,000 stone blocks that weigh from 2 to 30 tons each and there are even some blocks that weigh over 50 tons. The questions that still remains is how ancient man was able to quarry, transport and mount these incredible rocks to form the Great Pyramid of Giza. Interestingly, the outer mantle was composed of 144,000 casing stones, all of them highly polished and flat to an accuracy of 1/100th of an inch, about 100 inches thick and weighing approx. 15 tons each. As if this isn’t incredible enough, the cornerstone foundations of the pyramid have ball and socket construction capable of dealing with heat expansion and earthquakes. This technology has allowed the Great Pyramid of Giza to remain standing thousands of years after its construction. Something that still causes headaches among experts is the mortar used in the construction of the Great Pyramid: The mortar used is of an unknown origin (Yes, no explanation given). It has been analyzed and its chemical composition is known but it can’t be reproduced. It is stronger than the stone and still holding up today.
According to research, the Great Pyramid was even more beautiful in the distant past as it was originally covered with casing stones which were made of highly polished limestone. These casing stones reflected the sun’s light and made the pyramid shine like a jewel. They are no longer present being used by Arabs to build mosques after an earthquake in the 14th century loosened many of them. It has been calculated that the original pyramid with its casing stones would act like gigantic mirrors and reflect light so powerful that it would be visible from the moon as a shining star on earth. Appropriately, the ancient Egyptians called the Great Pyramid “Ikhet”, meaning the “Glorious Light”. How these blocks were transported and assembled into the pyramid is still a mystery.
Mathematical calculations integrated into the Great Pyramid. The base of the pyramid covers 55,000 m2 (592,000 ft 2) with each side greater than 20,000 m2 (218,000 ft2) in area. The ancient builders of the Great Pyramid placed the structure with incredible precision: Aligned true north. The Great Pyramid is the most accurately aligned structure in existence and faces true north with only 3/60th of a degree of error. The position of the North Pole moves over time and the pyramid was exactly aligned at one time. Even more interestingly, the Great Pyramid is located at the center of the land mass of the earth. The east/west parallel that crosses the most land and the north/south meridian that crosses the most land intersect in two places on the earth, one in the ocean and the other at the Great Pyramid. The weight of the pyramid is estimated at 5,955,000 tons. Multiplied by 10^8 gives a reasonable estimate of the earth’s mass. Sun’s Radius: Twice the perimeter of the bottom of the granite coffer times 10^8 is the sun’s mean radius. [270.45378502 Pyramid Inches* 10^8 = 427,316 miles]
But one of the most incredible features of the Great Pyramid of Giza is perhaps that it has eight sides instead of four as everyone believes. The four faces of the pyramid are slightly concave, the only pyramid to have been built this way. The centers of the four sides are indented with an extraordinary degree of precision forming the only 8 sided pyramid, this effect is not visible from the ground or from a distance but only from the air, and then only under the proper lighting conditions. This phenomenon is only detectable from the air at dawn and sunset on the spring and autumn equinoxes, when the sun casts shadows on the pyramid.
Why was Great Sphinx named by that name?
is a word synonymous with a password, meaning in the ancient Egyptian religion a lion with a human body, and perhaps a mystery or a secret throughout its history
Who built Great Sphinx?
Built in the era of King Khafra.
Construction date: between 2558-2532 BC
He is the guardian of the gates of the underworld. Statues of the Sphinx were made of stone and his task was to guard his tombs. As for the era of the New Kingdom, it was placed on both sides of the roads leading to the entrances to the temples.
Where does the Sphinx look?
He looks east and became a symbol of longing and was worshiped in later ages. In the era of Thutmose IV, his prestige was restored and repaired after the sand covered it, and the event of his reform was proven after this king dreamed of it and the dream was fixed in a painting engraved in the hands of the Sphinx called (the dream painting), and it became synonymous with the god (Hor Makhis), which means (Horus on the horizon) And it is likely that when the Arabs called him the Sphinx or the Sphinx, this has something to do with the word (hoor), which has changed in their tongue into haul and haul.
The statue is made of limestone, where stone sections used in the construction of the pyramids are found, and it is likely that it was originally covered with a layer of plaster and colored. And the traces of the original colors are still visible next to one of his ears. The Sphinx is about 73.5 meters long, 20 meters high, and its head 14 meters wide, looking east.
Is the Great Sphinx female?
His body is a human body, the face of which is the embodiment of the pharaoh Khafra, and the head of the statue is covered with a royal head covering called Austria, guarding the site. The body and head are carved from the same stone. As for the legs, they were added by construction. The foundations of a temple were mostly built during the same period of the following eras, as it had a long-borrowed beard, which is now broken and found in the British Museum.
Length of Great Sphinx:
The length of the front feet: 15 meters
The secret of the hole under the ear of the Sphinx?
The traveler Hayward Phys used many packages of dynamite to search and excavate the secret catacombs in the statue of Abul-Hall. Large holes were formed in the head of the statue, then he made a failed attempt to restore the cement with cement.
Causing an opening under the head of the statue to date.
The story of Great Sphinx nose:
The Pharaonic statues possessed a nose with a width of 100 cm, but so far, the cause of the loss of the nose has not been discovered, but there are many efforts, including:
- The nose was destroyed by the French campaign defender, led by Napoleon.
- The statue from the beginning was built with a nose.
- Destroying one of the mystics, one of the Sufis who lived next to the statue.
- Climate and erosion factors.
The truth about Great Sphinx?
Archeologists and historians of Egyptology have been searching for the cause and truth of the statue, but so far, no confirmed information has been found, but there are opinions from it …
- The statue represents the design of human wisdom and the power of the lion of King Khafra.
- King Khufu built the face of Abul-Hall with the same details of the face, where a pharaoh statue of King Khufu resembling the face of Abul-Hall was found.
- Representing in ancient religious beliefs the worship of the sun god Hor-M-sister, that is, Horus on the horizon, which represented the Egyptian worship of the god Atum to worship the sun at sunset.
- Many statues of the Pharaohs visited the statue, such as King Ra’s Mes II, King Tutankhamun, King Ramesses II and Emperor Septimius Severus.
The story of Great Sphinx:
- located on the southeastern road from the Great Pyramid in a relatively low valley, and some people are shocked when seeing the Great Sphinx for the first time because they expect it to be very large, but in reality it looks smaller in size compared to the pyramids.
- carved in a large stone rock and this rock stone represents part of the temple group in the valley attached to the middle pyramid of King Khafra.
- Did you know that until the year 1926 the Sphinx was buried in the sand to its neck, and after the sand that was around it was raised, archaeological research assures us that the history of the Sphinx dates back to the days of Khafre, the owner of the second pyramid.
- The Sphinx is part of the Khafre hierarchical group, as it is a large quarry from which the workers cut the stones needed to build the pyramids and private cemeteries, but a large mass remains in the middle of it and they left it in its place.
- The architects of King Khafra made from this block a grand statue of the king in the form of a lion with a human head.
- On top of the statue of the Sphinx is the royal head dress, known as (Nems) and a hostel on either side of its face, which represents the face of King Khafra himself.
The dream painting story:
Between the two feet of the foreground statue of the Sphinx is a granite plaque engraved with King Tuthmosis the Fourth (a dream of a hunting trip), which details the story of a dream of Thutmose and the story of the agreement between him and the Sphinx on this granite plaque, which exists to this day.
Throughout the ages, the Sphinx was covered with sand and was removed from it several times.
The most famous removal was recorded on the “dream board” directly in front of the Sphinx, where it was ordered to be placed by the pharaoh Tuthmosis the Fourth between 1400-1390 BC.
The dream painting depicts the promise that King Tuthmosis IV received in the dream that he would become king if he removed the sand around the Sphinx, before he ascended the throne of Egypt in 1401 BC.
In its upper part are carved figures of the pharaoh Tuthmosis the Fourth to the right and to the left, presenting our offerings to the Sphinx.
Foreign archaeologists have taken molds from the painting and prepared gypsum molds for translation and interpretation of hieroglyphic writing and drawings, and there is one of those paintings that are very similar to the origin in the London Museum.
The Secret of the Sphinx:
And hardly any stretching touches that (the Sphinx), during the era of the modern state, was considered a deity of the dead and a guardian of the dead, and that characteristic makes his position at the entrance to the cemetery a very appropriate thing.
This attribute may be attributed to the fact that the Sphinx from the time of the Old Kingdom was called the Atom of the sun god of alienation, as we saw in the texts of the pyramids, and perhaps the idea was originally that the god King was residing there on the western horizon like “Atom” and then became considered a protector of the dead in the West.
However, the Sphinx’s relationship with guarding the dead was the subject of the fiercest insistence of the Egyptians in the late ages who praise him by saying: “I protect your funerary shrine” and watch your funerary room and pay the stranger who may enter, topple your enemies with their weapons, expel the evil from your grave, and destroy your opposites .. They will never return. ”
We also note that the humanization of the features of the king in the two-and-three statues of Menkaure has been demonstrated with the utmost clarity in some of the following sculptures on the era of Menkaure, which is confirmed by the head of the statue, which is believed to belong to King “Chibesh K,” which is the highest peak reached by art Sculpture in the era of the Old Kingdom in its ability to project vital and human feelings in the features of the statue.
In addition, the transparency of alabaster that was used as a material for sculpting had added to this head a feeling of the pulse of life, if compared to other heads of royal statues dating back to the same age, which are characterized by adherence to art more formally than adherence to expressionism, this despite the fact that these heads have Sculpted with sophisticated art committed to the ultimate in precision.
Inside Great Sphinx:
Nothing in the history of sculpture is more beautiful than the statue of Khafre, made of diorite stone, which is built in the Cairo Museum. Hardly affected by Awadi Al-Dahr and his deputies. This statue was made of the hardest and most intractable of stones for man, but it transmits to us the fullest of what the transmission is of the king’s (or artist’s) physical strength, his authority, his stubbornness, the stubbornness of his opinion, his bravery and intelligence.
The ancient Egyptian sculptor followed some traditional rules drawn from religious beliefs in that era. It was observed in all statues positions whether they were standing or sitting on a chair or squared or sitting cross-legged, that the body and head are facing the beholder and have no torsion, a situation that shows respect For the post, for the soul, and for the people, it was also noted that in standing statues the left leg advanced on the right with the body leaning on the right leg. The artist also put some statues borrowed eyes made of different materials. The eyelids are of copper or bronze, the white of the eye is white marble, and the pupil is of rock crystal or of shiny black stone.
Pyramids Are Not What You Think They Are: Underground Halls Beneath Them
On November 10th, 1993, an hour-long documentary titled ‘ The Mystery of The Sphinx ‘ was broadcast in primetime on NBC to some 30 million viewers across the United States. The documentary, which would go on to win an Emmy award for its work, detailed a series of geological and seismic surveys conducted around the Giza Plateau between 1991 and 1993 by a team of Egyptologists led by John Anthony West.
What West and his team had discovered during these surveys stunned the viewing audience.
According to geological evidence, the Sphinx was not 4,500 years old, as was commonly accepted, but much older, in fact, over 10,000 years old, dating back well before the rise of Egyptian civilization as we know it. Further, seismic surveys showed a vast expanse of unexplored tunnels and chambers underneath the Sphinx, stretching deep underground. Documentary viewers and historians a cross the world wondered what this could mean, what secrets could be hidden in these unexplored depths.
That same year, another team, led by German robotics engineer Rudolf Gantenbrink , sent a small robot equipped with a camera down an unexplored 8-by-8-inch shaft within the Great Pyramid.
The robot crawled slowly for 200 feet, until it reached a startling impasse, what appeared to be a door made of limestone or marble. More incredibly, the door seemed to have two copper handles on it. Metal, such as copper, is not found anywhere else in the Great Pyramid, leaving Gantenbrink and his team to wonder if they were in fact handles, or perhaps keys, or something else entirely. More importantly, they wondered, what could be behind this door?
The Suppression of Archaeological Findings
Curiously, Egyptian authorities called the door a “hoax” and banned Gantenbrink and his team from exploring further, despite their offers to give authorities the robot and even train Egyptian technicians to operate the equipment and open the door. The director of the German Archaeological Institute in Cairo, Dr. Rainer Stadelmann, strangely sided with the Egyptian authorities, insisting, “This is not a door there is nothing behind it.”
That same year, Egypt’s Chief Inspector for Antiquities, Dr. Zahi Hawass, physically expelled John Anthony West and his team from the area after the broadcast of ‘ The Mystery of the Sphinx ,’ which Hawass called “American hallucinations.” When West attempted to obtain a permit to resume exploration in 1995, it was Hawass again who made sure the application was denied. “Zahi Hawass has basically obstructed us,” a dejected West would later tell The New York Times .
Certainly, Hawass was not alone, but rather part of what some Egyptologists describe as a “ mafia ” involved with the pyramids, controlling research permits, suppressing new information, and, in the words of a petition signed by many thousands, “hiding possible findings that could be of great importance to all members of the human race.”
The question is, why? Why would Egyptian authorities obstruct significant research into its legendary wonders? And just what could these “possible findings” be, that could have such “great importance to all members of the human race?”
Perhaps hidden below the pyramids of the Giza Plateau is a history that pre-dates ancient Egypt, a story that shakes accepted mainstream knowledge to its core.
Mysterious Discoveries around the Giza Plateau
The question of what might be hidden under the pyramids did not start with John Anthony West and Rudolf Gantenbrink.
Records show that in 1817 , the British Counsel General to Egypt, Sir Henry Salt, alongside the rogue Italian explorer Giovanni Caviglia, discovered a large tomb just west of the Great Pyramid, which opened up to a maze of subterranean passages. Unfortunately, these men were not historians and abandoned exploration of the passages when they found them devoid of the treasure they were hunting.
Yet, stories and records alluding to the existence of a subterranean underworld beneath the pyramids have existed for thousands of years, recorded and retold by travelers, historians, and the prominent thinkers of the time.
Consider ancient Greek legends about a hidden above-and-below ground complex known as ‘ The Labyrinth ,’ at the Hawara pyramid, some 60 miles from Giza. As described by 5th century BCE Greek historian Herodotus :
“There I saw twelve palaces regularly disposed, which had communication with each other, interspersed with terraces and arranged around twelve halls. It is hard to believe they are the work of man. The walls are covered with carved figures, and each court is exquisitely built of white marble and surrounded by a colonnade. Near the corner where the labyrinth ends, there is a pyramid, two hundred and forty feet in height, with great carved figures of animals on it and an underground passage by which it can be entered. I was told very credibly that underground chambers and passages connected this pyramid with the pyramids at Memphis.”
The 1st-century Roman historian Pliny wrote of a tomb deep below the Sphinx, which he described as a “tomb of a ruler named Harmakhis that contains great treasure.” Iamblichus, a 4th-century Syrian philosopher, described an entranceway to a subterranean underworld through the body of the Sphinx. In his own words:
“This entrance, obstructed in our day by sands and rubbish, may still be traced between the forelegs of the crouched colossus. It was formerly closed by a bronze gate whose secret spring could be operated only by the Magi. It was guarded by public respect, and a sort of religious fear maintained its inviolability better than armed protection would have done. In the belly of the Sphinx were cut out galleries leading to the subterranean part of the Great Pyramid. These galleries were so artfully crisscrossed along their course to the Pyramid that, in setting forth into the passage without a guide throughout this network, one ceasingly and inevitably returned to the starting point.”
These crisscrossed galleries sound not unlike a labyrinth.
In the 10th century, historian and geographer Masoudi wrote about this subterranean underworld, and again in the 14th century, an Arab writer named Altelemsani recorded the existence of underground passages beneath the pyramids in a manuscript still kept in the British Museum.
In fact, as British explorer Andrew Collins pointed out , “ancient funerary texts clearly allude to the existence of a subterranean world in the vicinity of the Giza pyramids.” Even the name of the area itself suggests this to be true. Giza was called Rostau in ancient times. Rostau translates to the “Mouth of the passages.” the “Gateway to the Duat” or “Other world”
If history and modern scientific research are to be believed, there can be little doubt that a vast subterranean underworld exists beneath the Giza Plateau.
But what is it for? And who built it?
In the 1930s, famed American psychic Edgar Cayce, known as “The Sleeping Prophet,” made a curious assertion. He claimed to have received a vision that the Sphinx was not 4,500 years old, as was commonly accepted, but rather, over 10,000 years old, and further, that concealed beneath it was a so-called ‘Hall of Records’ containing ancient knowledge and wisdom, the true history of the human race. Were these the ramblings of a lunatic, or something more?
As early as 300 BCE, the Greek philosopher Crantor spoke about pillars of stone which lined passageways under the pyramids, pillars with a record of prehistory chiseled into them.
In the 4th century, Roman historian Ammianus Marcellinus noted ancient knowledge recorded on subterranean walls beneath the pyramids, designed, he believed, to preserve said knowledge through the Great Flood.
Masoudi, writing in the 10th century, described how:
“Written accounts of wisdom and acquirements in the different arts and sciences were hidden deep [under the pyramids], that they might remain as records for the benefit of those who could afterwards comprehend them.”
In his own incredible words: “I have seen things that one does not describe for fear of making people doubt one’s intelligence. But I have still seen them.”
In the 1400s, Christian Rosenkreuz, the founder of the Order of the Rosicrucians, spoke of a “secret chamber beneath the ground” of the Giza Plateau filled with library books containing ancient knowledge.
It must be asked: if such a cache of knowledge does, or even might exist, why would this existence be so vigorously denied by Egyptian authorities? Why would further research and exploration be subverted and shut down? Why would these authorities assert, as they did in 1972 , that
“No one should pay any attention to the preposterous claims in regard to the interior of the Great Pyramid or the presumed passageways and unexcavated temples and halls beneath the sand in the Pyramid district.”
Imagine that records hidden beneath the pyramids revealed a pre-Egyptian culture, as alluded to by historians across the ages, a timeline of history which shows that Egyptians were not in fact the builders of the pyramids. If this were the case, then the opposition of Egyptian authorities would be quite understandable.
Yet, perhaps there are darker, more nefarious actors at work, what Australian author Tony Bushby described as “a hidden level of censorship in operation.” Perhaps the true secrets of the pyramids go beyond even a ‘Hall of Records.’
Underground Passages Below Every Pyramid
In 2003, an archaeologist with Mexico’s National Institute of Anthropology and History named Sergio Gómez Chávez was examining the damage caused by days of heavy rains around the Feathered Serpent Pyramid in the ancient region of Teotihuacan, outside of what is now Mexico City. At the foot of the pyramid, a “ torrent of mud and debris” caused by the rains had opened a three-foot-wide sinkhole. Chávez shone his flashlight inside but could see only darkness. Perplexed, the small and wiry man tied a rope to his waist and lowered himself into the hole.
What he found was a perfectly cylindrical shaft leading to a closed-off passage with “ extraordinary treasures ” — greenstone crocodile teeth, crystals shaped into eyes, sculptures of jaguars ready to pounce – sealed off from the world, unknown but for a fortuitous act of nature. At the end of the tunnel, Chavez discovered the most unexpected thing – large quantities of liquid mercury. Mercury is an extremely rare and conductive element that today is used primarily in electronics and automobiles, so the presence of this dangerous substance below an ancient Aztec pyramid has puzzled scientists. According to ancient Hindu texts, liquid mercury was part of the propulsion system which the gods used for their flying chariots. Perhaps it’s no coincidence that liquid mercury was found in a temple build to honor Quetzalcoatl – the feathered serpent god that came down from the sky.
In the years that followed, Chávez would use a radar device to create an underground map of the unexpectedly extensive collection of tunnels and chambers under the pyramid.
Since then , both the Pyramid of the Moon and the Pyramid of the Sun, also in Teotihuacan, have had similar subterranean underworlds mapped using electrical resistance technology.
While many may initially think of Egypt or Mexico, the fact is, pyramids appear on every continent . This begs the question: how many of these pyramids have a similar subterranean world beneath them?
Consider, starting in 2005, an extensive tunnel and chamber network was found beneath the Bosnian Valley of the Pyramids . Or, that in 2014 , archaeologists uncovered a hidden underground tunnel system running from the Peruvian city of Cusco to the pyramid of Intiwuatana at Machu Picchu. How many more examples might be found if exploration was allowed or even encouraged?
But the real question is, why are there similar pyramid structures with similar subterranean underworlds built across the world by cultures who knew nothing about each other?
Nikola Tesla’s Discovery of Free Energy Generation
In 1891, famed inventor Nikola Tesla took to the stage at a conference in New York City to present a lecture to the American Institute of Electrical Engineers. In each hand, he held a lightbulb. They were not connected to any wires, yet, to the shock of those in attendance, both glowed brightly.
Tesla explained that electricity was being transmitted through the air via two large pieces of metal he had set up on either side of the stage. He would go on to speculate how one might increase the scale of this effect over a broader area, perhaps even the whole world.
By 1905, Tesla and a team of laborers, after working for a period of years, had completed the assembly of the 187-foot-tall Wardenclyffe Tower in Shoreham, New York. The enormous tower was held up by a root system buried some 300 feet in the ground and topped by a 55-ton dome of conductive metal. As Tesla explained:
“In this system that I have invented, it is necessary for the machine to get a grip of the earth, otherwise it cannot shake the earth. It has to have a grip so that the whole of this globe can quiver.”
The idea was to “pump” the planet with electricity, which would “intermingle with the natural telluric currents that move throughout the earth’s crust and oceans” – quiver , indeed. The tower would project energy skyward through its huge metal top, into the electricity-friendly ionosphere some 50 miles up. From there, it could then be harnessed, as with Tesla’s light bulb demonstration, by homes and vehicles using small antennas to tap into the energy conduit.
In this way, Tesla believed he could harness the energy lodged within the earth and transmit it all over the globe, providing the entire planet with unlimited free energy.
In 1905, Tesla filed a patent in the United States titled “The art of transmitting electrical energy through the natural medium,” and it appeared he could be on the precipice of something game-changing. Yet, that very same year, Tesla’s financial backer suddenly abandoned him, and the project collapsed. Interestingly, his financial backer had been JP Morgan, one of the richest people on earth and a man who amassed his fortune by financing the captains of oil and industry, that is, the very entities which would be put out of business by a new, unlimited energy source. One cannot help but think of the “hidden level of censorship” described by Bushby.
Though Tesla’s legacy is vast, his plans for unlimited energy have mostly been forgotten or suppressed. Except, maybe they weren’t his plans.
Were the Pyramids Ancient Powerplants Generating Free Energy?
A little-known fact about Nikola Tesla is that he was, throughout his life, fascinated by the Egyptian pyramids. He studied them, wrote, and thought about them often. It was what some have called an “ obsession .” But why?
The answer may be revealed in his 1905 patent, in which he included a design for his unlimited energy device, called simply, “Tesla’s Electromagnetic Pyramid .” Consider this electromagnetic pyramid, and the design of the Wardenclyffe Tower, and compare them to the construction of the Great Pyramid of Giza.
At one time, the Great Pyramid was covered by an outer layer of white tufa limestone, blocks which fit together so perfectly, not even a razor blade could slip between them. White tufa limestone is unique in that it does not contain magnesium, giving it tremendous insulating properties. This means that these casing stones would have perfectly insulated whatever was inside the structure.
Beneath the casing stones, the pyramid is built on a different type of limestone, one which is known to increase its electrical conductivity in direct proportion to the weight exerted upon it, like, for example, the weight of a pyramid.
More inexplicably, the passages within the pyramids and their underground tunnels are lined with granite. This seems strange since granite is one of the hardest stones on earth, and thus, one of the most notoriously difficult to work with. Further, there was no source of granite anywhere near the area, meaning the over 8000 tons used in the pyramid had to be shipped there by boat from Aswan, some 500 miles away. This would seem like an incredible undertaking if the granite did not serve some specific purpose.
Of course, granite is known to be slightly radioactive, filled with high amounts of quartz crystal, and, as such, is a well-known conductor of piezoelectricity – think of a quartz wristwatch which can be charged by shaking. Further, granite is known to ionize the air around it, again increasing electrical conductivity.
What could this all mean, these unusual materials used in specific situations?
Consider that the Giza Plateau sits on top of a system of underground rivers. In fact, it has been shown that thousands of years ago, the mighty Nile River ran right past the pyramids. Were the pyramids built to harness the piezoelectricity of the currents of these rivers? Could this explain the vast network of underground chambers and tunnels?
Only two years ago, an international research group published a study in the Journal of Applied Physics , which showed that the Great Pyramid could: “concentrate electromagnetic energy in its internal chambers as well as under its base.”
Some thinkers have begun to put the pieces of the puzzle together.
The theory has been described as follows: Water from underground rivers travels through the subterranean tunnels, up into the limestone through capillary action. From there, the construction of the pyramid creates an internal field of harmonious vibrations, and gives space to enable the energies to mingle within. The apex of the pyramid produces a “spin field” within its center, and once the energy has entered, it reels off the five angles and is projected in a beam towards the middle where a pillar of the fused vibrations occurs.
In other words, like Tesla’s Wardenclyffe Tower, energy is drawn from the earth and projected skyward.
Historically, the Great Pyramid was topped by a gold cap. Gold is one of the most electrically conductive materials on earth, the gold top then providing a path for electricity to shoot up into the ionosphere, much as with the 55-ton metal ball which topped Tesla’s tower.
The similarities between Tesla’s plans for unlimited energy and the construction of the Great Pyramid, alongside Tesla’s apparent obsession with the subject, have led many to speculate that Great Pyramid of Giza was, in fact, an ancient power plant, able to project energy which could then be harnessed at individual locations.
The Pyramids are the Remains of an Advanced Electrical Civilization
Many have noted the appearance of obelisks throughout Egyptian culture and, in fact, around the world. Made of granite and topped with quartz, these obelisks could have acted much like Tesla suggested antennas could, tapping into the energy conduit produced by the Great Pyramid.
It has been suggested that the history of an electrical Egypt is actually told in the Bible through the story of Moses. As one of the Pharaoh’s closest advisers, Moses would have been privy to all the ancient secrets of Egypt, including, it could be assumed, the secrets of energy, if such secrets did exist. Some have suggested that the biblical Ark of the Covenant, described in the Book of Exodus as a gold-covered wooden chest containing the two stone tablets of the Ten Commandments, is actually a metaphor for the superconductor at the core of the Great Pyramid which powered ancient Egypt. Rather than having received the Ten Commandments from a mountaintop, Moses instead took the Ark of the Covenant with him when he fled Egypt, perhaps explaining why, in possession of that which made Egypt great, Moses and his people would have been pursued so ruthlessly by the Pharaoh, as described in the Book of Exodus. This may also add a new twist to the story of Moses parting the Red Sea what type of electrical wizardry could this be a metaphor for?
Interestingly, historical references show that Egyptian civilization reached its peak during the reign of Ramses II, the Pharaoh at the time of Moses, before collapsing shortly thereafter.
According to mainstream consensus, it is not so complicated – the Great Pyramid is simply a tomb, as many pyramids are believed to be it has no secret purpose or metaphorical history, just another tomb. Except, the Great Pyramid does not contain any of those things found in Egyptian tombs elsewhere, no extravagant artifacts or opulent wall art, no sealed entrances there were not even any mummies. If not for these things, then for what? Could it really have been a power plant?
Consider the mysterious Baghdad batteries – a 2,200-year-old clay jars found near Baghdad , Iraq, described as the oldest known electric batteries in existence. Or consider that ancient Egyptian carvings and art consistently appear to depict giant lightbulbs like the ones found in the Dendera temple. In fact, Iamblichus described an experience in the underground tunnels and chambers below Giza as follows :
“We came to a chamber. When we entered, it became automatically illuminated by light from a tube being the height of one man’s hand and thin, standing vertically in the corner. As we approached the tube, it shone brighter. . .the slaves were scared and ran away in the direction from which we had come! When I touched it, it went out. We made every effort to get the tube to glow again, but it would no longer provide light.”
But these types of stories of strange happenings around the Giza Plateau have been commonplace for centuries.
Strange Anomalies Happening Around the Pyramids
During the 9th century, Egyptian Governor Ahmed Ben Touloun described a goblet of glass discovered in a tunnel under the Great Pyramid, which was “found to be the same weight when empty as when full of water.” Centuries later, in the 1930s, Egyptologist Dr. Selim Hassan attempted to pump the water out of subterranean chambers under the Giza Plateau, only to find that after four years of pumping, the water level had not descended at all. The water which would have been key to a pyramid power plant seems to have unusual properties around the Great Pyramid.
Perhaps even more bizarre is the story of Sir William Siemens , a British inventor who climbed to the top of the Great Pyramid in the late-1800s. Upon reaching the summit, Siemens was alerted by a guide complaining of a shrill ringing noise in their ears whenever they raised their hand with fingers spread. Siemens raised his own hand, and felt a prickling sensation spreading through it. Moments later, when he went to take a sip of wine, he received an electric shock when his lips touched the bottle. Puzzled, Siemens moistened a piece of newspaper and wrapped it around the bottle of wine to create a makeshift Leyden jar, raising this primitive capacitor over his head and watching in stunned silence as sparks of electricity sailed through the air. A frightened guide tried to grab the bottle of away from Siemens, who pointed the bottle at the man in self-defense. As he did, the man was thrown backwards onto the ground and knocked unconscious. It seemed almost as if a strong electrical current was emanating from the top of the pyramid.
This occurrence remained unexplained for years, and in fact, it is no longer possible to climb to the top of the Great Pyramid, having been made illegal for purported conservation purposes.
It is fair to ask: if the Great Pyramid is a power plant, how would the ancients have been able to create such a thing? Take a step back here. Even if the Great Pyramid wasn’t a power plant, there are still many aspects of its existence which defy ancient explanation.
Consider that the four corners of the Great Pyramid align perfectly with the four cardinal compass points, despite compasses not having been invented when it was built. Consider that when standing directly in front of the Sphinx on the summer solstice , the sun sets precisely between the Great Pyramid and the Pyramid of Khafre, despite the fact the ancients could not have known this date, as the calendar year had not been determined. Further, consider that complex mathematical equations and concepts were used in the engineering of the Great Pyramid, equations like Pi , which would not be discovered until thousands of years later.
Quite simply, from a technical standpoint as well as from a broader pool of knowledge, whether a power plant or not, the Great Pyramid, as well as many of the other pyramids across Egypt and the world, should have been impossible for the ancients to build.
So how were they built? Where did this knowledge come from, and what other knowledge might the ancients have been privy to?
Who Brought this Advanced Technology to Early Humans?
Here, the thoughts of Edgar Cayce, the American psychic who predicted the age of the Sphinx more than 50 years before science would prove him right, can again be examined for inspiration. In another of his prophecies , he claimed that a flying saucer was buried under the Great Pyramid of Giza. Perhaps this is not as outlandish as it seems. After all, many ancient carvings and cave etchings, in Egypt and elsewhere, depict what looks like flying saucers.
Perhaps this reveals the secret of how human beings could have possessed such seemingly impossible knowledge. They didn’t, until it was brought to them by a group of extraterrestrials.
Ancient Sumerian texts – which predate Egypt by thousands of years and, in fact, represent the work of the dominant civilization in the area at the time the Sphinx was actually built – tell the story of gods called the Anunnaki, which some modern scholars have interpreted as aliens, visiting the earth and intermingling with humans, bringing futuristic technology and incredible knowledge.
Perhaps it was these Anunnaki who built the Great Pyramid as a power plant for their advanced society. Perhaps this even explains the existence of similar pyramids with similar subterranean networks constructed across the world by cultures who apparently knew nothing about each other, a sort of global power network set up by the Anunnaki.
Interestingly, Sumerian texts speak of the secret abode of the Anunnaki,
“an underground place … entered through a tunnel, its entrance hidden by sand and by what they call Huwana … his teeth as the teeth of a dragon, his face the face of a lion.”
Could the Anunnaki be the key to ancient knowledge long lost, to the unlimited free energy sought after by Tesla, to a different understanding of human history, and even to what the human race is?

Malcolm Hutton and Gerry Cannon believe the Sphinx which sits on the sands on the Giza Plateau in front of the Great Pyramids could be the gateway to a labyrinth of tunnels and passages and a whole &ldquounderground metropolis&rdquo that has been lost to the world due to a cover-up by the Egyptian authorities.
The historians explain in their forthcoming book The Giza Plateau Secrets and a Second Sphinx Revealed&rsquo that news of this lost city first hit the headlines due to a Sunday Express article from March 1935 on excavations taking place of an underground city which at the time was said to date back 4,000 years.
The pair claim after that report nothing more about this city was heard.
Could there be a lost city under the Sphinx?
There are things under there, tunnels. Lots of people have written about it but they try to cover it all up
Historian Gerry Cannon
Mr Cannon told Express.co.uk: &ldquoIt was as if every living Egyptologist had lost interest in this wonderful underground metropolis, for all their articles during the ensuing years are centred more on tombs of queens and shafts that had been sunk deep into the ground to burial tombs.&rdquo
The historians believe a hole on the top of the head of the Sphinx could be an entrance to this lost city, along with other openings on the structure.
However, they claim to have come up against a &ldquorose granite block wall&rdquo from the Egyptian authorities.
Mr Cannon said: &ldquoThere are things under there, tunnels. Lots of people have written about it but they try to cover it all up.
The mysterious Sphinx at Giza, Egypt

&ldquoNobody knows what&rsquos under there, no one has been able to investigate.
&ldquoThey&rsquore frightened that if they find stuff under there, it&rsquos going to blow all their books and all their history out of the window.
&ldquoThey started to investigate it but then they stopped. So they must have known there&rsquos stuff there but they&rsquore worried.
&ldquoOnce it&rsquos proven that all their history is wrong, all their books they&rsquove written will be thrown out. If they&rsquove found stuff, they daren&rsquot show it.
&ldquoThere are entrances, there are photographs that show it. There&rsquos this hole in the top of the Sphinx, on its head.
A ‘Lost Ancient Underground City’ Beneath the Pyramids of Giza?
Egypt is the land of Pharaohs and Pyramids. Since time immemorial, Egypt’s lands have been the subject of awe, inspiration, and surprise. Thousands of years ago, Egypt was already a land where the impossible became possible. The ancient culture built massive pyramids, intricate labyrinths, and processed stones weighing hundreds of tons without modern tools.
The ancient Egyptians made the impossible, possible, making sure to remain present in the analogs of history, archeology, architecture, and engineering for millennia to come.
And while we have stood in amazement while exploring the lands of Egypt, have we ever wondered about what else remains hidden beneath the surface?
Many scholars argue that exploring the secrets hidden beneath Egypt’s sand is nearly impossible.
For thousands of years, the golden dunes have faithfully kept Egypt’s secret safe. Only to a few have some of them been revealed.
One such secret, suggest ancient writings, is a city beneath the pyramids and the surrounding areas.
At the Giza plateau, where the Pyramids stand proud and the Sphinx stands guard, is an entirely unexplored world beneath the surface.
The Great Sphinx is halfway buried beneath the sand. The image was taken in 1887.
Some argue that the underground secrets predate the very first Egyptian Pharaoh and the pyramids themselves.
Before unraveling the secrets of Giza, we travel to the Faiyum Oasis immediately to the west of the Nile south of Cairo in Egypt.
There, Herodotus, an ancient Greek historian, described ‘an endless wonder.’
He is widely considered to have been the first writer to have treated historical subjects using a method of systematic investigation—specifically, by collecting his materials and then critically arranging them into historiographic narratives.
Herodotus described an impressive Labyrinth said to have contained as many as 1,500 rooms and an equal number of subterranean chambers heavily guarded and inaccessible to ordinary people.
Herodotus wrote about the mysterious labyrinth:
“There I saw twelve palaces regularly disposed, which had communication with each other, interspersed with terraces and arranged around twelve halls. It is hard to believe they are the work of man, The walls are covered with carved figures, and each court is exquisitely built of white marble and surrounded by a colonnade. Near the corner where the labyrinth ends, there is a pyramid, two hundred and forty feet in height, with great carved figures of animals on it and an underground passage by which it can be entered. I was told very credibly that underground chambers and passages connected this pyramid with the pyramids at Memphis.”
But in addition to that, the Greek historian also spoke of a multi-level megalithic metropolis located directly under Giza, said to be more than 15,000 years old.
Many other writers supported what Herodotus had written.
One of them was Iamblichus Chalcidensis, or Iamblichus of Apamea, a Syrian Neoplatonist philosopher who recorded in ancient times unprecedented information about an entrance into the Great Pyramid of Giza, leading directly from inside the body of the Sphinx.
“This entrance obstructed in our day by sands and rubbish may still be traced between the forelegs of the crouched colossus. It was formerly closed by a bronze gate whose secret spring could be operated only by the Magi. It was guarded by public respect, and a sort of religious fear maintained its inviolability better than armed protection would have done. In the belly of the Sphinx were cut-out galleries leading to the subterranean part of the Great Pyramid.”
Iamblichus further explained that the historic galleries were artfully decorated along their course towards the Pyramid. If one were to travel into the passages without a guide, you’d inevitably returned to the starting point.
Another Greek philosopher named Crantor of the Old Academy, probably born around the middle of the 4th century BC, supported the writings made by Herodotus.
Crantor suggested an intricate set of underground pillars said to contain written stone records of pre-historic events.
Furthermore, writings of first-century Roman historian Pliny suggested that there were concealed chambers directly beneath the Great Sphinx of Giza.
Pliny wrote about the existence of a tomb belonging to a ruler called Harmakhis. Interestingly, it is believed that the Great Sphinx was once called “The Great Sphinx Harmakhis who mounted guard since the time of the Followers of Horus.”
But it is perhaps Arab writer Altelemsani who documented the most amazing underground chamber near the Great Pyramid of Giza.
In an ancient manuscript housed at the British Museum, Altelemsani wrote about an extensive underground chamber located beneath the surface, exactly between the Great Pyramid and the Nile River:
((Source: Chapter 8 of “The Secret of The Bible” From NEXUS MAGAZINE APRIL-MAY 2004)
“…In the days of Ahmed Ben Touloun, a party entered the Great Pyramid through the tunnel and found in a side-chamber a goblet of a glass of rare color and texture. As they were leaving, they missed one of the party and, upon returning to seek him, he came out to them naked and laughing, said, Do not follow or seek for me, and then rushed back into the pyramid. His friends perceived that he was enchanted.”
“Upon learning about strange happenings under the Pyramid, Ahmed Ben Touloun expressed a desire to see the goblet of glass. During the examination, it was filled with water and weighed, then emptied and re-weighed. The historian wrote that it was found to be of the same weight when empty as full of water.”
So the question remains, what exactly is there beneath the Sphinx? Beneath the Pyramids and surrounding areas?
Are the mysterious chambers, tunnels, and labyrinths described by ancient authors such as Herodotus real? Or is their existence nothing more but the figment of their imaginations?
Illuminati Symbols : The All-Seeing Eye
The Eye of Horus represents the eye that the falcon-headed god Horus lost while battling the dark god Set. The symbol, composed of an eye with falcon-like facial designs, was used by the ancient Egyptians as a symbol of protection. It was also used as the Egyptians' system of measuring fractions.
However, just like the Pyramid, the Eye of Horus has become associated with the Illuminati conspiracies. These objects were used as Illuminati symbols because they represented something older and stronger than the church. As one of the Illuminati symbols, the Eye of Horus has evolved into what is known as the All-Seeing Eye.
The All-Seeing Eye is usually depicted as an eye surrounded by the glow of the sun, and sometimes encased in a pyramid. The most famous example is again the Great Seal on the US$1 note.
The All-Seeing Eye is commonly said to be the eye of the Christian God watching over us, but the conspiracies out there suggest that the Eye represents a "Big Brother" organization watching and controlling us.
The All-Seeing Eye is ever present throughout our daily lives. Many corporations sport the Eye (and sometimes the Pyramid) in their logos. The conspiracy theories assert that the Illuminati are in control of these organizations, and are constantly influencing us via business, television or the internet.
The next time you see any of these Illuminati symbols, it could very well mean that the Illuminati is trying to influence you. "Big Brother" is watching.
