  • EL CONJUNTO MONUMENTAL DE GIZA EXPLICADO; SU RELACIÓN CON EL PRINCIPAL ATRIBUTO DIVINO Defiendo la simetría intencionada de las dos mayores pirámides de Egipto. No son una más una (1+1) muy cercanas, sino que simbolizan los dos platos de una sola balanza subliminal idealizada, por lo cual, como conjunto, tienen un valor añadido. El diseño de una balanza sostenida por el divino sol (Ra) para los sacerdotes de la IV Dinastía representaba reproducir el artilugio más útil del mundo antiguo, el mismo que les permitió fomentar tratos comerciales con máximas garantías. Le esfinge con cabeza de león sostenía un disco sobre su cabeza, y formaba un conjunto donde realizar rituales espirituales en veneración del dios sol Ra. Para presentar idílicamente una "Balanza Solar" construyeron dos "platos de balanza" gigantescos (como las dos pirámides realmente lo son), para conseguir imaginar un instrumento digno del divino soporte, que para aquellos sacerdotes era el astro rey. Por fin se confirma lo que siempre se ha dicho: "Las pirámides de Giza imitan un conocimiento cósmico-esotérico para enlazar de alguna manera el cielo y la tierra." Y ello vale también para los tiempos cuando la pirámide de Micerino, la más pequeña alineada en Giza, aún no existía.
