The Hall Of Records:

Legacy From Atlantis




(C) …as time draws nigh when changes are to come about… there will be the opening of the temple or hall of records in Egypt...

11/12/33 5750-001 /23




I have saved the best part for last, the Hall of Records. Despite its importance, it is not at all an obvious message. It is complex, its parts are scattered through many readings, some of the parts leave unanswered questions, and some of it, as will become obvious, is veiled with intentional mystery. Frankly, it is so complex, no one has gotten it. Or, no one has communicated it on paper. Hopefully, I have done enough justice to it to begin a basic understanding of the prophecy and the significance of the prophet.

The Hall of Records Prophecy is only incidentally about the artifacts of Atlantis. The prophecy is mainly about the transformation of human understanding and its society. But before we can obtain an understanding of this prophecy, we need to walk down the Halls...and just to find the right Halls we will have to dig through the Cayce corpus and exercise our gray cells to fit the pieces of the descriptions together to build the mosaic picture in which we can see the map.

Cayce gave more than a bit or two of information and they add up not so much as an answer as a mystery. The remaining mosaic tiles in Cayce's readings about records and artifacts underground in Rostau are many and varied and collectively they pose a major problem. Out of context, the individual passages can seem to fit together in more than one way, worse, sometimes they seem to be talking about entirely different things. This problem is easily understood after dealing with the readings about the Royal Treasury, which is why I mapped it out first.

One of the largest problems in fitting the tiles together for the mosaic of the Hall of Records, is the stream of variations in his word choices for describing virtually the same thing. On the one hand, Cayce mentions a hall, house, or temple of records, and on the other hand, on each finger, he mentions a Tomb of Records, chambers of the way, pyramid of records, burial pyramids, and a sealed room, and that's not all. If each reference or tile is read in isolation, one ends up initially with confusion. One supposes at first that many of these are disparate things and one wonders if any of them really belong together. Then, one wonders if they all refer to the same thing. After struggle, one finds that the solution lies with neither answer. The solution is far more interesting. Fortunately, if we are sharp witted enough to pay close attention to Cayce’s word choices, only one basic way the info tiles will finally all fit together consistently within the matrix of the mosaic formed by all of his readings. To my knowledge, no one else has ever fitted them together.

Fitting the tiles of the vision together requires understanding how he uses variations on word choices over a twenty year period to refer to the same things as well as how he used alternative words to refer to distinctively different parts of a labyrinth. Cayce left the problem solvable because of his tendency to provide "bridging" references, passages in which he used two descriptive terms together, as in the example below, thus informing us what the terms mean. It sounds easy but it took me two years of playing this particular jigsaw puzzle off and on to get the pieces to fit.

Fortunately we can resolve almost all of the disparate and overlapping references into the Hall of Records, and as we fit them together, we will find that we are not looking at some hall...underground...we are looking at an extensive labyrinth. A couple of mysteries will remain about his descriptions...but these are nothing compared to the awesome mystery of what is contained within the Hall.

The Temple of Records

As we entered the Royal Treasury, we were on a hunt for the Temple of Records which we had begun after we had explored the Hall Of Initiation (Great Pyramid). At the Hall of Initiation, Cayce had told us that a "Temple of Records" recorded all of the prophecies and metaphysical teachings of Ra and Hermes. These records had been directly used in the design of the Hall of Initiation to symbolize the Fourth World. Since the Hall of Initiation had been despoiled, with the prophecies of the Fourth World removed by one of Egypt's historical rulers, quite probably by one of the Hyksos invaders, our only chance for finding this material was to locate the original source.

Our initial leads from the Sphinx Entrance lead us to something different, to the Royal Treasury, which turned out to be quite a complex of itself, involving at least two buried pyramids on the Nile Valley floor. We found the remains of a King and some of his officials, a variety of priceless treasures, many records in various forms which we will have trouble translating, information which appears to detail comings and going and interactions of the regime with widely scattered parts of the earth, and most interesting of all, hints of metaphysical principles and perhaps prophecies being taught to foreign peoples.

This hint of a world mission teaching the wisdom of Atlantis reminded us of the Atlantean Temple of Records. So we left behind the Royal Treasury for discovery from physical exploration by archeologists and philosophers. We made our way back to the Sphinx Entrance to examine in detail some more of Cayce's enigmatic clues seeking more hints about Atlantis.

A search for the Temple of Records in the Cayce Corpus gives us Cayce predicting its opening:

(C) …as time draws nigh when changes are to come about… there will be the opening of the temple or hall of records in Egypt...

11/12/33 5750-001 /23

In this line, Cayce told us that his various remarks about the Temple of Records, which we encountered in his story of Egypt and in connection with the Great Pyramid, is also about the "Hall of Records", which is a name he used often. This line provides a master template for fitting together the various passages of Hall of Records prophecy. This use of two terms in the same context to show their equivalence I call a "bridging reference" because it ties together many passages from disparate readings, allowing us to fit together the tiles of the mosaic of the Hall and/or Temple of Records.

We see also another key term which he used in some of his remarks about the Hall of Records and the records of Atlantis:

"when changes are to come about..."

This pet phrase, sometimes with slight variations, was used often to refer to a "pole shift" event. This term also ties together various separate readings, even as it ties together two different predictions. Once again, Cayce is putting the two events together, the pole shift and the opening of the hall of records in the millennial period of 1998-2001. And once again, with the phrase "as time draws nigh", Cayce seems to imply that the Hall of Records will be opened prior to the pole shift. This we can see if we simplify the phrases by eliminating a few marginal words and by changing the order of the phrase to make a straight forward sentence out of it:

"There will be the opening of the temple or hall of records when changes are to come (pole shift draws nigh)."

The universal indicative is decisive: such and such WILL BE. There is not much room here for an ambiguous take. The implication is that changes (the pole shift) are to come (yet) when there is the opening of the Hall of Records. So in our search for the Temple of Records we have returned to the Hall of Records, after a long journey through Cayce's truly ancient Egypt, to confront once again a portion of his millennial prophecy.

The Heart of the Mystery

As we toured through the construction of the Royal Treasury, the Sphinx and the Great Pyramid, Cayce told us that the Temple, now Hall of Records, was built by rebuilding a site already in existence and that it contained all of the metaphysical material from the Temple Beautiful, prophecies of the ages, the rise and fall of the nations, the progress of religion and the plans for the Great Pyramid.

Cayce also told us that the plan of connection of the Sphinx to the nearby buildings, which includes the Royal Treasury composed of at least two buried pyramids, possibly more, may be found in vaults in the base of the Sphinx. Is this Temple or Hall of Records also connected? Or, is the Hall of Records another name for " vaults" in the base of the Sphinx or the Carpathian Royal Treasury?

Seemingly the Hall of Records cannot be the vaults, for those records in the vaults are details about the Carpathian regime and construction details about Rostau. We are looking for what the Atlanteans left as records about Poseidia. As cited in many life readings given by Cayce, the Temple or Hall Of Records, was essentially an Atlantean work as part of the Rostau Phoenix Project. The Phoenix project also incorporated the Sphinx, vaults in its base, an entrance to connections to other buildings, the Royal Treasury/Storehouse and the records of the first two Kings.

We looking for the temple or hall of records area with contains the prophetic work of Ra and Thothermes and the records of Atlantis:

(C)…The entity was of the Atlanteans who set about to preserve records, to make for the variations that were a part of the activities especially assigned to the peoples of Atlantis. For the entity came with those groups who were to establish the hall or house of records, and the entity directly or indirectly may be among those who will yet bring these to light - when the present disturbances through those particular areas have again given privilege for the searching for the sacred records, of the Atlanteans. The entity may help. The name then was Acmelwen..

01/20/44 3575-2 LIFEF43 (Catholic Worker) /15-17

Ahh, now we have Cayce talking about a "Hall or House of Records". And now we have caught Cayce using three names to refer to the same thing, giving us a "Temple, Hall, or House of Records. Surely we have resolved one of the mysteries on our list, the Hall of Records is the same as the House of Records is the same as the Temple of Records for the Atlanteans.

We are very close to the description which Cayce used for the Royal Treasury. But in all of the readings related to the Royal Treasury, there is no bridging definition to a Hall, House, or Temple of Records containing Atlantean artifacts. What are we to make of this close similarity?

And just what is this Hall, really? A hall is one thing - seemingly a very large room - or a corridor of some sort. In my mind, the word "hall" usually brings up the image of a long corridor unless I am thinking about concerts and operas. In an European mind, it may conjure the image of a very large formal room for large gatherings. A house of records would conjure up in most people's minds the image of several rooms comprising a stand-alone building. A temple of records, well that could be just about anything, most likely a free standing complex primarily composed of one large room with a number of side rooms, possibly with more than one story. As we search further, don't be surprised if Cayce's readings seem to support all three concepts for his Hall of Records, and more than one of each.

There are some other interesting aspects to this reading for "Acmelwen". Notice that one of the key terms here is "may be", which tells us that we are looking at a piece of inspirational guidance, not a specific prediction. Cayce is encouraging Ms. Catholic Worker to get involved. Did she? It would be interesting to hear from those who could provide information about Ms. Catholic Worker. She is about 97 as of this writing, if still living. Notice the reference to timing. This reading was given during World War II, but does "recent disturbances" mean just World War II, or more? There is no way to tell from this reading. But presumably he was talking about the War period. There has been extensive exploration and digging in Egypt since that time.

The Phoenix Project: The Atlantean Resurrection

We seem to be getting closer to the concept of the Temple, House or Hall of Records, but do we have any clue, really, about where it is located? As we search for more clues to the location of the Hall of Records, Cayce pours out amazing detail about the Hall and its records. From the mosaic of this detail, we can began to discern the vision and determine its location.

The constructions and the Hall Of Records project quite obviously, as Cayce intimates in a few readings such as this one, had considerable support in Atlantis, reaching even into one of the royal families:

(C)Much might be given respecting the activities of the entity who sealed with the seal of the Alta and Atlanteans, and the aid given in the completion of the pyramid of initiation as well as in the records that are to be uncovered.

10/29/33 0378-016LIFEM56 Executive, Protestant /2

As we know from previous chapters, the "pyramid of initiation" is the Hall of Initiation. Records which have been "sealed", with the seal of a royal house of Atlantis, are to be "uncovered". Surely this is completely different than the records related to the Carpathian Dynasty in the Royal Treasury. Those would have been sealed by the seal of King Araaraart or one of his successors. These must be the records of Atlantis. But where are they? Records that are to be uncovered parallel pyramids yet to be uncovered, which was approximately one of Cayce's prime pet phrases for the Royal Treasury. Thus the question remains, is the Hall Of Records mainly the Royal Treasury?

Surely these are all in some way related, especially when we consider the role of Hept-supht. When Hept-supht, the official in charge of the transfer of the Atlantean records, had immigrated to the Nile valley, he became a major advisor and diplomat for the Carpathian Dynasty. He found himself dealing with the administration and storage of the Carpathian legacy even as he managed the Atlantean records:

(C) ...the entity aided the priest in activity, but the populace the more... aided much in the records; not only of the period... but the records of that which was to be, as well as that which had been, and the records in that monument or tomb or pyramid yet to be opened. Records also of those that were transferred from the destruction of the Atlantean land. For, the entity was still in charge of these records...

8/14/33 378-13 LIFE M 56 (Executive, Protestant) /17 -18

Now we have the Atlantean records associated with a monument or tomb or pyramid, and this could be anywhere in the Royal Treasury where Cayce had described pyramids yet to be discovered or uncovered as well as monuments which were rebuilt in the plains. Are we in two of the pyramids of the Royal Treasury?

And are we talking about the place of the records which Cayce admonished use to find? In Cayce's story of the Second Dynasty, Cayce told us about the efforts of Oron and the Law Of One to preserve Atlantean records. They evolved three Phoenix Projects, and Cayce admonished the current incarnation of Oron to:

(C) ...seek...those records of the activities of individuals were preserved, - the one in the Atlantean land, that sank, which will rise and is rising again; another in the place of the records that leadeth from the Sphinx to the hall of records, in the Egyptian land...

09/25/39 2012-001 LIFE M26 (Physicist) /31

Notice the shift in the description of the records. In this passage we have more specific terms. The "activities of individuals" are located on Atlantis and in "the place of the records that leadeth from the Sphinx to the hall of records". Here we apparently have something in addition to the "Hall of Records. Just what do we have here now?

In the Royal Treasury we learned that there is an entrance at the Sphinx which leads to a passage or chamber which in turn connects in some manner with the Royal Treasury, the second pyramid. In this new passage, we have "activities of Atlantean individuals" in a "place of records" which leads from the Sphinx to the "Hall of Records". We may not be finding the Hall of Records. We may not be sure that it is or is not the Royal Treasury, but we seem to be getting warmer and some interesting stuff is showing up on the way.

This "place of records" seems to connect the Sphinx with the Hall of Records, quite possibly in the manner of a long passageway with alcoves and niches. Some of this passageway "place of records" apparently contains reports of "individual activities". I have begun to think of Oron’s place of records as the Chambers of Stories which are found in a corridor called the Atlantean Passageway. The "activities records" can be described as the Portraits Of People to distinguish all of these from the Hall of Records.

This is all well and good but the last passage still leaves us with a huge mystery. Cayce has told us that records of Atlantis are in a passageway leading from the Sphinx to the Hall of Records. And in the last Chapter he had also told us that a passageway lead from the Sphinx to the Royal Treasury, which contained many records of the Carpathian. This implies strongly that both the Hall and the Treasury are interconnected to each other as well as to the Sphinx, although this is not strictly necessary. We know that the Royal Treasury is located on the valley floor in front of the Sphinx's eastward gaze. But so far we have no idea about what direction to look in for the Hall of Records. Are we in the same passageway? Or we talking about the same thing? Or have we branched off into another direction?

Regardless, it is clear what the temple or house or hall of records is about. It is also clear, there are at least two locations for Atlantis' records, one in the Hall, and one, the Chamber of Stories, connected in some way to the Atlantean Passageway leading to the Hall.

The next passage from a group reading on the subject of ancient Egypt repeats and solidifies what Cayce has told us in the passages above:

(Q) In which pyramid or temple are the records mentioned in the readings given through this channel on Atlantis…?

(C) As given, that temple was destroyed at the time there was the last destruction in Atlantis. Yet, as time draws nigh when changes are to come about, there may be the opening of those three places where the records are one, to those that are the initiates in the knowledge of the One God: The temple by Iltar will then rise again. Also there will be the opening of the temple or hall of records in Egypt, and those records that were put into the heart of the Atlantean land may also be found there - that have been kept, for those that are of that group. The RECORDS are ONE.

11/12/33 5750-001 /23

This mostly lucid passage is terribly useful. It is another of those occasional gems which sets everything (Cayce's readings) into proper perspective and eliminates the ambiguity and vagueness in other readings. Let us take it, key phrase by key phrase:

"when changes are to come about"

is a typical pet phrase used by Cayce to point to the major earth changes which he predicted would occur approximately in the 1958-2001 timeframe, with most of the activity centered in the 1998-2001 timeframe.

"as time draws nigh"

this pet phrase repeats the one made in the first passage we examined and again strongly implies timing which is just before the pole shift.

"may be"

is designed to indicate the possibility that the "openings" conditionally COULD occur, hence is permissive, not indicative, a clue, a pointer, a hint to those who like to find such things…

"opening of those three places"

Cayce is again affirming, eliminating any possible ambiguity in other readings, that there ARE three places where the last records of Atlantis, circa the last flight of the Phoenix, are stashed.

"where records are one to those that are the initiates in the knowledge of the One God"

Oh-oh, this could be the beginning of a heavy qualification - they may not be literal carbon copies, they may require considerable symbolic analysis to come to such a conclusion. There is, however, another reading which implies fairly clearly that these Atlantean records are identical copies with what can be found in the Yucatan and Poseidian areas.

"Temple of Iltar will rise again"

This is the Mayan site which Cayce mentioned to Oron. It may be found and opened because it WILL rise above the waters of the Caribbean. See how the fabric runs from one reading to another? If we had used only Oron's reading to start looking in Yucatan for a hall of records, we would have been sorely disappointed. This one-liner in combo with the last sentence in the Oron reading is an intelligence bonanza. We look for a pyramid which becomes visible by virtue of land which rises out of the Caribbean, most likely fairly close to the existing Yucatan coastline, most likely after the 1998-2001 time frame. Any bets that the pyramid there can be identified right now through satellite data or US Navy sonar scans (which I have heard has subjected every inch of the Atlantic ocean bottom to sonar profiles)? There are no other location clues to this temple in the Cayce readings.

"will be"

Given the absence of qualifiers, this is an universal indicative, subject ONLY to timing in the future. Solely within the context of this reading, it could be SOMETIME between 1958 and 2001. Based on the larger context of Cayce's predictions, it is highly PROBABLE that he is talking about the time frame 1998-2001.

"the temple or hall of records in Egypt"

Temple, as given, referred in one instance to the temple of Atlantis on Poseidon. But now the term is being applied as well to the Hall Of Records in Egypt. From a previous reading he also used the word "house". In what sense is the Hall Of Records a temple or a house? Is Hall Of Records a title or name, which he is now qualifying with semi-equivalent terms (house or temple). It is this to give us the impression of something other than a hallway, something more like a large institutional complex? This phrase solidly connects these Hall Of Records predictions with other readings which used various terms such as house, temple, pyramid, chambers, hall, sealed room, all pointing to records which will be found again. As a matter of fact, I consider this particular passage as the "first among equals" of all of the "tiles" of Cayce's comments and have required all other pieces of the mosaic to align properly with this one. Regardless, Cayce is definitely telling us that the Hall Of Records in Egypt WILL be opened, WHATEVER IT IS.

"the heart of the Atlantean land"

Cayce reaffirms that it may be possible to find the Atlantean record site in the heart of the Atlantean land, which one would take to refer to Poseidia (which is mentioned specifically in another reading). This is probably not the temple described by Plato, it was most likely destroyed during the last Phoenix. It is going to take some real thought and analysis to find the context and additional clues to decipher this one. (I doubt there is anything else in Cayce's readings about it, but I am not absolutely certain).


This seems to tell us that that we should be able to identify strong components of similarity in the materials at all three sites. Let's hope it does not take three volumes of metaphysical analysis of the underlying symbolism to come to such a conclusion, because most of us will be unable to follow such a conclusion. Besides, it is too easy for intellectuals to "cook the books" in the queerest of ways. One simply needs to look at modern physics or egyptology to understand the problem here.

"have been kept, for those that are of that group"

Ahh, now the return to mystery after so much clarity. Records have been kept in a hiding place for members of some group? What group? Who is in it? What are they going to do with the records? This small one line teaser goes to the core of the entire drama of the Hall Of Records, which I have come to think of as Thoth's Last Magical Act...

I have gone to the forgoing trouble to make you actually read the passage in its excruciating detail. I have noticed an almost universal tendency of the human mind, which I observe operating in my own as well, to read things too rapidly, to truncate the phraseology, to turn conditionals into indicatives, and vice verse, and transmute ambiguities and possibilities into certainties, or vice verse, thus ending up with generalizations which simply are not supported or intended. With Cayce's passages, hasty reading could be disastrous and irreparably damaging to one's mental health.

This last mystery we shall revisit as we examine the contents of the Hall of Records, when we find it, and we shall look for clues to this group. We still do not know the location of the Hall of Records. But even without knowing the direction to travel in, from Cayce's description, it seems easy to get into the Hall Of Records. All we need to do is find the entrance near one of the Sphinx's front paws and let the passageway take us there. Reasonable? Ahh yes, but again the mystery sons deepens...into a labyrinth.

Tombs, Temples, & Buried Pyramids

Our journey has only begun. We have yet to descend into the chambers, tombs, rooms, passageways, murals, museums, and mummies under the ground at Rostau (I use the word mummy advisedly – Cayce never used the term; I don't like "dead bodies" and "remains" are, well, not nouny enough. So mummies they are in this book, though the actual remains may have little or no resemblance to actual real life mummies).

This next passage is from readings which tell the story of Aris-Hobeth, a musician in the Temple Beautiful:

(Q) Where are those records or tablets made of that Egyptian experience, which I might study?

(C) In the Tomb of Records, as indicated. For the entity's tomb then was a part of the Hall of Records, which has not yet been uncovered. It lies between - or along that entrance from the Sphinx to the temple - or the pyramid; in a pyramid, of course, of its own.

05/01/41 2329-3 LIFE F42 /36

Che Bingo! We have found it! It seems that we had found the Hall and were already in it without even knowing. And we find here another definitive prediction which explicitly enlarges the scale and scope of the Hall Of Records considerably. To this point, we have been inferring from Cayce's language that it must be IN a complex composed of distinct parts, but for the most part the terms leave only a vague, fuzzy idea. It is difficult to really get the picture in most of the readings. But here the answer is simple: all the parts are IN the Hall of Records.

Careful dissection of this passage allows us to make sense of most of the unanswered questions and unsolved mysteries which have arisen on our journey so far, as well as allow us to interpret the remaining references Cayce makes to the various parts and contents of the underground at Rostau.

It all becomes very clear when this statement is restated in the logic of a straight foreword grammar:

A Tomb of Records is a part of the Hall of Records. This Tomb of Records is a pyramid which contains Aris-Hobeth's tomb. This Pyramid Tomb of Records lies along the entrance (Atlantean Passageway) between the Sphinx and the temple pyramid.

Cayce has just given us a vital clue, namely, the Hall of Records is a name for a complex of many parts and areas. It is not just one area, as in a simple hall, passageway, or chamber. He is once again using the term temple within the context of the Hall of Records. Here he seems to imply that a temple pyramid, the Atlantean Passageway, the Chambers of Stories, and the Sphinx Entrance are all parts of the Hall of Records.

But we have one unknown: just what does temple mean in this context? Is this the Temple of Records which Cayce also called a House, Hall, or Temple of Records? One is inclined to think so. And this may explain the ambiguity of the terms he used. It seems as if Cayce or his source decided to refer to the Temple of Records as a specific area and used the name Hall of Records to broaden his description to include other parts of an underground complex.

Seemingly, we are adding quite rapidly to the Atlantean Passageway. We now have a Pyramid Tomb of Records (containing Aris-Hobeth's mummy and some tablets) near the Sphinx Entrance, a place of records (Chambers of Stories) and Portraits of People, all on the way to the Pyramid Temple of Records. . This "Hall" is getting to be a pretty big place.

And at least a part of this we way have already encountered in the Royal Treasury. In describing Araaraart's pyramid, the one in which he is buried, which was the original storehouse and treasury for the First Dynasty, Cayce told us that there is a chamber or passage from the right forepaw of the Sphinx leading to an entrance of a record chamber or record tomb. Later we learned there was at least two such pyramids containing various records, storehouses, tombs, and objects. Is Aris-Hobeth's Tomb of Records pyramid one of these? If not, we now have three buried pyramids.

In this next passage, Cayce tells us again that the Temple of Records is close at hand, but he also drops another subtle hint, if the stenographer did not introduce an error:

(C) The entity aided in those activities, being among the children of the Law of One from Atlantis; AIDING the Priest in that preparation, in that manner of building the temples of records that lie just beyond that enigma that still is the mystery of mysteries to those who seek to know what were the manners of thought of the ancient sons who made man - a beast - as a part of the consciousness…Then the entity was in the name Asamasama...that found aid and help from compliance to the Law of One.

11/16/40 2402-2 LIFE F56 (Widow, Seeker of Truth) /38-39

Now we have reference to a plurality of temples of records. Is this a case of Cayce arbitrarily using the word "temple" to refer to any of the buried pyramids which comprise the Hall Of Records and the Royal Treasury? If so, it nicely resolves all issues of terminology. Or has Cayce thrown us into a total loop? As one thinks of the Sphinx, one normally thinks of its face. Hence, anything which lies just beyond the mystery of mysteries is up on or inside of the Giza Plateau. The main thing on top of Giza are the three great pyramids of Orion. It would seem that we could have another mystery which has been formed by the ambiguities of Cayce’s descriptions.

As an aside, the Asamasama reading is highly interesting if you are inclined to read some of Cayce's readings. Asamasama's succeeding life was in Gobi, when it was still viable. Apparently it takes the earth's climate a good 1000-2000 years or so to adjust to a new "norm" after a change in the location of a polar ice cap. It probably takes that long for the old polar ice caps to melt and the new ones to establish the South-to-North upper flow of warm air and the North-to-South lower flow of cold air which is typical of the climate pattern of our age. Typically, during a pole shift, the old polar ice caps move about 25 degrees into the mid temperate zone. Until the ice has been properly relocated, earth's global weather patterns will be radically skewed in strange ways.

To return to the Hall, apparently we have a Hall of Records which now composes at least two underground pyramids, possibly three, a Tomb of Records and a Temple of Records, plus passageways, containing information about activities of individuals (Chamber of Stories), which connect the buried pyramids to the Sphinx. Also apparently, the buried pyramids were referred to simply as temples of records.

Hmmm, except for the names and the Atlantean content, this sound a lot like the Royal Treasury, does it not? If so, we have a Hall Of Records at this point comprised of three pyramids buried on the Nile Valley floor: The original Carpathian Royal Treasury (the first one built), a Pyramid Tomb of Records, and a Pyramid Temple of Records for Atlantis.

The mystery continues to deepen, as we encounter Ax-ten-tna in the Halls. We meet him in the following passages from a reading for Mr. Writer. His story reveals much and ties in the Hall of Records at Rostau with the entire plot line of the Phoenix Project and the eastern Diaspora of refugees from Atlantis:

(C) Before that we find the entity was in the Atlantean land, during those periods when there was the knowledge - through the teachers or leaders in the Law of One - as related to the destruction of the Atlantean or Poseidon land. And the entity was among those who journeyed from Atlantis or Poseidia itself, first to the Pyrenees or Portugese land and later into what would be called in the present the Egyptian land - during those periods after the recall of Ra-Ta, when he with Saneid and the activities from the land of On and Oz and those from what is now known as the Gobi land attempted to make for a unification of the knowledge.

11/26/37 1486-1 LIFE M 55 (Protestant, Writer of Religious Music) /27-30

Ax-ten-tna obviously was tied in with a prophetic group which claimed to have fore-knowledge of an impending shift in the axis of the earth. As part of his personal plan for meeting that fate, Ax-ten-tna no doubt first hit the shores of Portugal during the last great wave of Atlantean refugee movement into Europe, and then completed his journey to the Nile after Phoenix 4, where in Egypt he got involved with the Phoenix project which was underway at Rostau. He seems to have been specifically drafted into the work of the Fellowship, the Shemsu Hor, which was under the administration of Isis. This must have been an highly exciting project in which to be involved because no doubt he would have been ferried by the dirigibles of the Phoenix Project to both the Andes Mountains and the Gobi desert area. In other readings we will learn that Saneid was a religious leader in the Andes Mountains (the land of On and Oz):

(C) Hence we find the entity then, Ax-Ten-tna, as would be said in the present, was the first to set the records that are yet to be discovered, or yet to be had of those activities in the Atlantean land, and for the preservation of the data, that as yet to be found from the chambers of the way between the sphinx and the pyramid of records. Hence is it a wonder in the present that the entity is in this experience under the symbol and the sign of both the sphinx and the pyramid, when there is to be given a new awakening in many portions of the earth?

11/26/37 1486-1 LIFE M 55 (Protestant, Writer of Religious Music) /27-30

There is some very interesting phraseology in this passage which may be pointing to something in addition to the Hall Of Records, which Cayce tells us lies in front of the Sphinx. Here Ax-Ten-tna set data in "chambers of the way" between "the sphinx" and "the pyramid of records" (which we may or may not know). Here, there is no mention of the hall of records. Instead, we have chambers of the way between the sphinx and the pyramid of records. Are these clues to something other than the Hall Of Records? Perhaps this pyramid of records is the same thing as the Royal Treasury? Or perhaps it is the same as the Pyramid Tomb of Records? Or is it really the Temple Tomb of Records? Or do we just have head-aching ambiguities created from a sloppy, inconsistent use of language in different readings at widely divergent times?

In our previous examination of Cayce's Pyramid stories, I noted that Cayce seemed to refer to the Great Pyramid as a vast "record in stone" of the history of the earth, and of humanity during this, the Fourth World. He told us that the Great Pyramid was built from the percepts and prophecies which were first written into the Temple Beautiful and the Temple Of Records.

At the time, Temple Of Records had no context and I remarked upon it as a mysterious reference. But we have seen that Cayce at times described the Hall Of Records also as a House or Temple Of Records. We also saw a pyramid which was a temple which Cayce said was a part of the Hall of Records, and we have a strong hunch that this is the Temple of Records which is the same thing as the House of Records which contains the Atlantean records. But earlier we saw the Royal Treasury which Cayce called a storehouse, treasure house, record house, and a pyramid. So which pyramid is this pyramid of records?

Is it the Great Pyramid? If so, then Cayce is giving us new information here about the Great Pyramid, information which is not repeated in any other reading. But I think it is doubtful that he is talking about the Great Pyramid. There were many incidences when he talked about the Great Pyramid as the Great Pyramid, the Hall of Initiation, or simply as the pyramid. His only alternative titles for it are Gizeh, Pyramid, Temple, or House of Initiation, though he also did refer to it as a record in stone.

All of these questions and tendentious discussions make a point. There is no piece of the Cayce mosaic of the World Epic which can be assumed. Every tile of the mosaic must be examined this rigorously. Actually this one is fairly easy to resolve. Since this is an Atlantean who is setting data into the "way" from the Sphinx to the Temple, similar to another Atlantean whose remains are in a Pyramid Record Tomb connected to the "way", and similar as well to the "activities of individuals" which lie on the "way" in the Chamber of Stories, surely this Pyramid of Records is in the Hall of Records and is either the Pyramid Temple of Records or the Pyramid Tomb of Records. The "chambers of the way" must be a Cayce term for what I called the Atlantean Passageway.

Quite possibly, we have located the person who set the "data" of the "activities of individuals" in what I called the Chambers of Stories:

(C) The activities of the entity then had much to do not only with the historic reaction but the developments for individual activities of groups, as the classifications came, were the ORDER of the entity as related to the King, as related to the Priest, and those that were sent or came as emissaries or teachers or representatives of those tenets that were gathered during that experience in the Egyptian land.

11/26/37 1486-1 LIFE M 55 (Protestant, Writer of Religious Music) /31

Despite the lousy grammar, the general idea seems clear enough. Ax-Ten-tna served as a social historian, compiling contemporary information about the entire Phoenix project, including the conditions it found and the concepts and activities which generated the social, economic, political, and religious structures by which Egypt was seeded with the genesis of Fourth World civilization. Apparently, this information will be found in the Chambers Of The Way leading to one of The Pyramid Temples Of Records in the Hall Of Records. One or more of these Chambers Of The Way is a Chamber Of Stories and connected with this is a section which we have already named the Portraits Of People.

Earlier, we learned that Egypt was not, nor was it designed to be, simply a restatement of Atlantean civilization. Atlantis was not some high civilization which deserved to be saved. At the time of its destruction, it was a fatally flawed, brutal imperialism which reduced its people to the pretentious rigor mortis of a birth-to-death class system. It was even practicing human sacrifice.

Atlantis as a civilization was not saved by the scientists who could have saved it because they found themselves at odds with their own culture. A major part of the Phoenix project's agenda was to purify the new humanity (the Fourth World) of the mistakes which manifested in Atlantean culture, including its propensity to materialism and imperialism. What was saved were the seeds of the best which could be harvested from Atlantis. These seeds were primarily sown in Egypt and Yucatan, and from these locations the Shemsu Hor worked with cultures in the Andes, the Gobi and Mongolian Plateaus, India, and the Mesopotamian Rivers.

The planting of the seeds in Egypt are chronicled by Ax-ten-tna in the chambers of the way. Perhaps as well, Axt-ten-tna's chronicles report the transmissions through the Shemsu Hor to the other cultural areas. These seeds blossomed and have sent their progeny to all parts of the earth through successive waves of exports from the Egyptian mysteries, most especially through the agencies of the Isis cults. The last vital transmission of the legacy was through the Hellenic renditions of the hermetic tradition. Is there any doubt that in these "chambers of the way" in the "Hall Of Records" we will find ourselves looking at the footsteps of Thothermes and the Shemsu Hor? Or, perhaps we shall find ourselves staring at Thothermes eyeball to eyeball?

Take A Deep Breath

When we left the Royal Treasury, we were looking for the Temple of Records, the Place of Isis, and the First Temple of Isis. We still have not found the ruins of the First Temple of Isis nor the new Place of Isis from which the entire Rostau complex was administered. But at this point we have found the Temple or House of Records, which holds the Atlantean records. It has become a buried Pyramid Temple of Records in an underground labyrinth composed of many parts, which are collectively called the Hall of Records (sometimes). The Atlantean Passageway leads to the Pyramid Temple of Records from the Sphinx Entrance, after passing by a Pyramid Tomb of Records and various Chambers of the Way, one or some of which is/are the Chamber(s) of Stories, some portion of which contain the story of the Phoenix Project and the actions of various people who founded Egypt. All of this is the Hall of Records and somehow the Sphinx Entrance leads to both it and to the Royal Treasury. The Royal Treasury itself has at least one pyramid, possibly more. We can't help noticing that we have at least three buried pyramids composing the entire complex and they SEEM to be different from everything else at Rostau.

All of this remains to be uncovered. Some of it at least was intentionally built underground. The Sphinx Entrance is carved out of bedrock and leads to an underground passageway traveling through solid limestone. It could not be any other way because that is all that there is there at the paws of Seshep Atum. But one wonders about the term "buried pyramids" on the plain or valley floor of the Nile. Normally, we think of pyramids as above-ground constructions, blocks piled upon blocks. But one could conceive of a pyramidal form being carved as a "negative" (a void) deep into the bedrock. But why bother? It would make no sense to do so. It's a crazy thought. Besides, Cayce referred to buildings, which are not considered in the normal use of language to be remotely similar to caves or caverns.

Thus it would seem that some of the Hall of Records, like the Royal Treasury, was originally built in the open air and became buried through the ages, either by the sands which blow over the Giza Plateau down into the Nile Valley, or by the mud which has been built up by the annual flooding of the Nile Valley. They could have been intentionally buried, but there is good reason to suppose that the planetary tectonic event during the singularity of 6000-7000 BC, or an extreme ashfall from one of several different rounds of volcanism in the eastern Mediterranean, produced the material which buried Hall/Treasury complex. Perhaps all of the factors contributed.

Are they all connected? Can they all be found by entering the Hall Of Records from the Sphinx Entrance? Passageways which were originally constructed underground may connect all points, but not all points were necessarily connected that way. Some of the connections may simply be courtyards, paths, and walkways which have become buried. Cayce never told us that we could find a clear passageway under the ground through which we could stroll leisurely to view the contents as if we were in a museum. He did tell use many times that the stuff and the pyramids remained to be uncovered, which strongly implies digging. But his emphasis on the idea of the Sphinx Entrance does seem to point strongly to passageways which connect all points and I lean to this interpretation.

For security reasons, it would make far more sense to have just one entrance to the treasuries of the regime and the sacred records of the religion. Thus, these pyramid storehouses may be mainly, like Sahu's Belt, massed piles of stone, with all of the action conducted underneath them and/or in small chambers in various portions of them.

In any event, this is quite a complex. And there is more...we have many more tiles to add to this mosaic. There may be even more buried pyramids and other constructions connected to the complex, given the numerous mentions of buried chambers, storehouses, tombs of records, and pyramids tombs made by Cayce. But by far, none of these will prove to be as interesting as the room which has been sealed by the Seal of Alta. For the heart of the mystery of the World Epic is the Atlantean records. Speaking of the "sealed room", Cayce clearly connected it to the Hall of Records and the Atlantean Passageway be telling us that it may be:

(C) entered from the connecting chambers from the Sphinx's paw (right paw)...Between, then, the Sphinx and the river.

 Somewhere In The Hall Of Records...

What will be found in the Hall of Records? Cayce detailed a few things and pointed vaguely to quite an assortment. Everything Cayce mentioned is tabulated in this book. Beyond this, it is anyone's guess about what will be found and most likely there is far more than Cayce mentioned

 Many of Cayce readings have been quoted previously in the various chapters related to Cayce's story of Egypt and the various monuments of Rostau. Some of them elude to contents. Short, summary lists of everything is provided in the various Keys for The Royal Treasury, The Hall Of Records, and The Sealed Room. The remaining descriptions which were not quoted anywhere else are summarized here, along with a few which I have repeated in truncated form to add additional commentary.

The Story Of The Atlantean Migration To The East

We start with an intriguing statement pointing in general to everything within the Hall Of Records:

(C) The old record in Gizeh is from that as recorded from the journey to Pyrenees; and to 1998 from the death of the Son of Man (as a man).

09/26/33 378-14 LIFE M56 (Executive, Protestant) /7

Gizeh was a term he used a few times to refer to the Hall of Initiation (the Great Pyramid). But within the context of this reading for Hept-supht, Cayce is talking also about the old records which are buried there. Quite obviously, we are dealing here with the Phoenix Project records and projected prophecies of the Fourth World, such as were depicted in the Temple Beautiful and which were then copied into the Hall Of Records to serve as the basis for the design of the Great Pyramid, which expresses in symbolic geometric form, at least some aspect of that prophecy.

As we know from many passages, the "journey to Pyrenees" mountains points to the escape and emigration route which most of the Atlanteans used before its scientists consolidated the Phoenix project at Rostau.

The Prophecy Of The Fourth World

(C) The old record in Gizeh is ... to 1998 from the death of the Son of Man (as a man).

09/26/33 378-14 LIFE M56 (Executive, Protestant) /7

This seems pretty obscure and in truth it is unless one reads it within the context of Cayce's metaphysical readings and his millennial predictions. There is Cayce's pet phraseology at work here, pointing, not really veiling. Here he is telling us that the records which can be found in Rostau give a chronology of recorded predictions to the year 1998.

Hard Empirical Scientific Realization Of The Transcendent Reality

By hard, I do not mean difficult, I mean tangible, replicable data from physical sources. The year "to 1998 from the death of the Son of Man (as a man)" is a hasty way of pointing to what he explained in greater detail in his millennial readings. In the period of 1998, Cayce predicts, humanity will begin to openly shed its concept of the material mortality of existence, and thus will become more conscious of its spiritual nature, which includes the possibility of conscious immortality. In Cayce's pet phraseology, humanity thus ceases to be a "son of man" (confined to mortality) and becomes a "son of god" (realizing and manifesting the immortal spiritual basis of existence).

You might wonder why this tangent should hold interest at this point. Simple: the 1998 period. It adds considerable strength to the idea that Thoth's last magical act will play in the open air for all the world to see in the period 1998-2001. Hence, we are as close to a specific date for the opening of the "Hall Of Records" as we are going to get from Cayce.

We can see immediately what the machinery is setting in motion. Arthur C. Clarke did a remarkable job of conveying this concept in his 2010+ book series. The Monolith (the mysteries at Rostau) is going to give humanity something to think about, something which points in the clearest and starkest of terms to the ability to transcend material space and time, thus OBJECTIVELY revealing the truly extraordinary scope of the cosmos with the hidden dimension shamans, prophets, and madmen have given testimony about since the beginning of human time.

Painted Colors Depicting Eras & Prophecies

(C) ...among the children of the Law of One who came into the Egyptian experience for preserving the records of those activities…These colors, that presented or represented the various periods, as well as the interpretations of On(?), Ra-Ta and Hermes, and the wise men of the period, were placed by the orders of the entity then - as Ajax-ol.

06/19/41 2462-2 LIFE M 35 (Architect, Protestant) /46-47

"On" may be a clue or it may be a mistake on the part of the transcriber for this reading. In other readings, Cayce referred to the land of On and Oz, which he located in South America. Other than that, I have been unable to located an individual called "On". A keyword hunt for "On" just does not work for obvious reasons.

The History & Fate Of Humanity

Here is another reason why Cayce's references to the plural divinity in the "heavens" should give us pause:

(C) Before that the entity was in the Egyptian land, during those periods when there was the preparation for the preserving - for the awareness of the dwellers upon the earth - the records of other lands, the teachings of other lands, that were paralleled; and that brought the awareness of those things that were to be manifested again and again in the earth as that manner or way for the gods of the high heavens to make themselves felt and known among the children of the earth plane.

11/16/40 2402-2 LIFE F56 (Widow, Seeker of Truth) /38-39

Cayce was, in his personal, conscious life, a bible-quoting near-literalist. References to the gods (here even using the third person plural to refer back to the gods) and terminology such as "creative forces" (which crops up in the vast majority of Cayce's life readings) to signify the deity, well, that is total heresy, I mean definitively fundamental, within the Judeo-Christian dogma of the one "God", this stuff is anathema. People, lots of them, were killed about this stuff. These repeated references, along with the astrologically oriented summations of present influences in the current live of Cayce's life readings, must have generated a lot of mental stress and stretching in his day in his locale.

Records of Educational Activities, Technology, & Technical Organization

Hept-supht, as is apparent in the passages below, was much more involved in the record keeping aspect than in the construction activities at Rostau (Pyramid and Sphinx), where we first encountered his name. I include these extensive passages here to provide an indication of the rich texture of information which MAY be in the Hall Of Records. Hept-supht, an Atlantean, apparently was the chief custodian of record keeping during the Phoenix project while he:

(C)…aided the most in directing those that began to be the heads of the varied departments in the establishing of the truths or tenets, or practical application OF the laws (as would be termed in the present) pertaining to those things that made for chemistry, building, commerce, labor, economic conditions, then the schools, the educational centers, and the varied activities that would be classified in such experiences in the present day. The ARTS, in the broader sense; as workers in precious stones, silver, gold, and the more delicate metals that required the more intrinsic activity of individuals. And music, and the instruments thereof. The recordings of the varied activities necessary that they might be handed down.

08/14/33 378-13 LIFE M 56 (Executive, Protestant) /16

(C) Hence, of particular interest to the entity is the manner in which a record is kept of the activities of EVERY branch of man's mental or spiritual activity. For, the entity then aided in these direct; hence came in contact, in direct touch with all those who headed or aided in mental or physical activity to produce that which would be helpful to the COMING generations in retaining and maintaining that standard set by those as they had journeyed along the way.

Musical Instruments

An-Si served as a cook and a dance in the Temple of Sacrifice and the Temple Beautiful. Later An-Si served a secretary for RA, and was involved in the storage of the Atlantean records. She also apparently stashed some historical mementos in the time capsule:

(C) Hence the entity became among the first users of the harp, or the lyre - as was later called, of the instrument. But in the entity's own periods there were rather the harps shaped as today, except they were much smaller and only carried then sixteen (16) strings...The entity's harps - and the entity's MENUS, as they would be termed in the present - are among those things preserved...in the storehouse of records.

The entity in that experience was known as Asa-Masa-Me.

32 Tablets

We come now to a reading which tells such a charming story and is such a good example of how lucid and well composed Cayce's readings can often be that I cannot bare to abstract it. I have complained often and you have suffered with me over some of Cayce's most difficult grammar, but this one we can simply enjoy.

Aris-Hobeth, a daughter of RA, who was apparently his "Favored One", immigrated with him from "the Caspian and the Persian lands", i.e., from the Carpathian homeland, and became a high priest in all put name, preferring to work unofficially behind the scenes, apparently active and influential in both the Temple of Sacrifice and the Temple Beautiful.

(C) Consequently, the entity set much in order as to the needs of the peoples; especially in relationships to the preparations of bodies for the coming of the other generations, as well as the preparing of individuals in the mental state as proper channels for distribution of thought - or for specific activities; whether in the realms of teaching, ministering, healing, or in the trades of whatever nature they might be.

05/01/41 2329-3 LIFE F42 /10

(C) When there had been the regeneration of the Priest, and when the periods of change came about for this entity, when there was the passing from the active service in the Temple, - with the tenets and laws that had been a part of this entity's activity throughout its sojourn, - the activities or truths were prepared upon tablets and placed with the entity in the Tomb of Records.

(C) It was this entity, this body, that was visioned in this present experience by that entity who was the Priest, as being that channel through which much of the tenets of that particular period might be made known to people in the present. [See 294-189 Reports - 12/2/37]

05/01/41 2329-3 LIFE F42 /20-21

(C) Apply self, then, to know much of those records written upon those tablets, that were a part of the entity's experience…(C) For, these were records made by the entity itself; preserved with the physical being of the entity.

05/01/41 2329-3 LIFE F42 /25-26

(Q) Where are those records or tablets made of that Egyptian experience, which I might study?

(C) In the Tomb of Records, as indicated. For the entity's tomb then was a part of the Hall of Records, which has not yet been uncovered. It lies between - or along that entrance from the Sphinx to the temple - or the pyramid; in a pyramid, of course, of its own.

05/01/41 2329-3 LIFE F42 /36

We clearly can see that Aris-Hobeth is buried in a tomb which is a pyramid of its own. This tomb or pyramid lies between the Sphinx and the temple or the pyramid, which is either the Royal Treasury pyramid or the Atlantean pyramid of the Temple of Records. Here we see a distinctly different prediction than the Hall Of Records prediction, which, although very closely related, differs in an important way. Her tablets are buried with her remains, which is one of just a handful of indications in the entire Cayce corpus that there are any actual funerary remains related to the Rostau complex. And, the artifacts are actually in a pyramid which is clearly connected to the Hall Of Records because of its location, which lies along the passageway entered from the Sphinx.

Let us finish Aris-Hobeth's reading:

(Q) Through what channels of the Association for Research & Enlightenment may the entity gain the most?

(C) As it begins it s further preparation and activity, seek through those channels for guidance - as it is felt that it is needed; or begin with the interpreting of the tablets. For, remember there are thirty-two of these plates!

(Q) Is it indicated as to when, approximately, these tablets may be discovered, or uncovered?

(C) By fifty-eight ('58).

(Q) How may I now find those records, or should I wait - or must I wait?

(C) You will find the records by that channel as indicated, as these may be obtained MENTALLY. As for the physical records, - it will be necessary to wait until the full time has come for the breaking up of much that has been in the nature of selfish motives in the world. For, remember, these records were made from the angle of WORLD movements…

05/01/41 2329-3 LIFE F42 /36-39

This is one of the strongest and rarest of suggestive instructions issued through Cayce. I wonder what she did with this reading? She would be about 100 at the first printing of this book.

The last passage has much to say to us. Cayce strongly encouraged Aris-Hobeth to seek and expect to find her tablets "mentally" by 1958. She of course wanted to find them physically, but he warned her that it was necessary to wait…this is not a matter of a few years, this is a matter of waiting until there is a profound change in the nature of human motivation in the world: "full time for breaking up much of the selfish motives in the world".

From the text, it is clear that finding these tablets physically is not specifically predicted. He says only that it is necessary to wait for a condition to arise. He is leaving us a clue, thus helping to make it possible to find these tablets, when the condition has been met. But he does not claim that they will be found. It is difficult to visualize Cayce's condition being met before the next flight.

All of which makes sense. Even if the Hall Of Records were opened in 1999/2000 and the "sealed room" was revealed to the world, it would most likely take archeology a long time to get around to exploring the remainder of the labyrinth. Given the nature of the world as it currently is, the richness of the sealed room would likely eclipse for at least several years any desire to dig for more in the darker, more remote alleys.
