In a manuscript (preserved in the Bodleian Library, and translated by Dr. Sprenger) Abou Balkhi says, "The wise men previous to the flood, foreseeing an impending judgment from heaven, either by submersion or by fire, which would destroy every created thing, built upon the tops of the mountains in Upper Egypt many pyramids of stone, in order to have some refuge against the approaching calamity. Two of these buildings exceeded the rest in height, being four hundred cubits high, and as many broad, and as many long. They were built with large blocks of marble, and they were so well put together that the joints were scarcely perceptible. Upon the exterior of the building every charm and wonder of physic was inscribed."
Massoudi says that on the eastern or Great Pyramid as built by these ancients the heavenly spheres were inscribed, "likewise the positions of the stars and their circles, together with the history and chronicles of time past, of that which is to come, and of every future event."
Another Arabic fragment, claiming to be a translation from an ancient Coptic papyrus,gives a similar account of the origin of the pyramids, and states that "innumerable precious things" were treasured in these buildings, including "the mysteries of science, astronomy, geometry, physic, and much useful knowledge."
So, too, the famous traveller, Ibn Batuta, says, that "the pyramids were constructed by Hermes, the same person as Enoch and Edris, to preserve the arts and sciences and other intelligence during the flood."
We know now that this pyramid was built during the reign of Cheops, in the so-called Fourth Dynasty of Egyptian Kings. But it is nearly as certain that Cheops never was entombed in it. The account given by Herodotus is sometimes quoted in proof that he was, but it is clearly a misunderstanding. That account says that Cheops was buried in some subterraneous place where "the Nile water introduced through an artificial duct surrounds an island." But there is not a single opening either in or under the Great Pyramid which is not far above the highest Nile level.
Diodorus says positively that Cheops was not buried here, but in some obscure and unknown place. For six hundred years after Al Mamoun broke open this pyramid the Arab writers who tell of the feat, say not a word of any human remains or indications of sepulture being found. Shehab Eddin Amed Ben Yahiya, on the contrary, says that "nothing was discovered as to the motive or time of its construction." Massoudi tells of certain findings, such as colored magic stones, columns of gold which nobody could move, images in green stone, and a c*** with flaming eyes, which stories none but a Moslem can believe; but says not a word of the finding of any man or any evidence of the use of the place as a tomb.
3. „Book of masters“
On one Croatian forum I found quote from so called „Book of masters“
„and so in all the teachings of the Egyptian mysteries, visible light was a shadow of the astral light and wisdom of ancient land- measure of truth.“
Since I translated this, I dont know would you recognoize it even if you aware of it. But I just want to see is such thing exist and does it say what does it say.
4.1. Since Im not good with Internet exploring, obviously, can someone confirm Massoudi, Abou Balkhi, Ibn Batuta and „Arabic fragment, claiming to be a translation from an ancient Coptic papyrus“? Are they for real? Did they wrote that? Can someone know works, perhaps chapthers of these quotes?
4.2. If so, isnt this proof that Great pyramid isnt tomb at all but monument for physics, history, astronomy and geometry? Im mean Arabs in the end move external part of GP. Why dont we believe them? They move it. They saw it. Why would they lie?
