YOU ARE THE PEOPLE OF THE LEGACY
This information relates directly to you. It is your higher SELF which understands the mechanism behind it all….
ALL you need to know is this….All those ancient scripts that talk about a downtrodden people, that will be exalted to the highest level in the last days are talking about YOU. It has to do with America, and the Real First People.

Isn’t it strange how things just come together. I find myself saying that a lot lately, I mean A LOT!
I have always worked in Midtown (Manhattan). Although I would occasionally venture to Wall Street as I worked primarily (in those days) with investment banking firms…DLJ, J.P. Morgan, Morgan Stanley, Lehman Brothers, Deutche Bank, and many other private banking institutions.
I am not sure how I discovered Campbell’s Apartment (located in Grand Central Station), but it was one of a few places that was nice to go to afterwork. Normally, I would read paperwork and relax as it was very quite, secluded, and not too busy. People came there with colleagues, or to impress a client; however most would simply go there for a brief cocktail before commuting out of the city.
But, there was one time, only one time, that a man, sat down adjacent to me and said the strangest thing. Well, strange because I thought it was a dumb line (if that was his intention). He said, “I bet you I can guess your age?” I put down my paper and turned to see a middle-age white male, and after a while of observing him (I thought he was crazy), I dryly said, “Okay.”
[I should add, I have always looked young. More than merely young for your age, as the saying goes.]
I thought I would play along, my paperwork was getting boring and I was going to leave soon. Anyway, do you know what he said?! HE CAME VERY CLOSE TO IT! I mean extremely close. And if that wasn’t strange enough, the next thing he said took the cake! He said, “And you will never look more beautiful”.
And with that, he stood up and walked away. I sat there confused. Thinking, “What the hell is that suppose to mean?”
I never thought about Campbell’s Apartment apart from a place to occasionally go afterwork. That is until now….

Hidden Underneath the Sands of Giza, Underground Passages, Subways, Tunnels, Burial Chambers and a secret Egyptian city.
The above news clipping from 1935, notes the discovery of subway tunnels leading into treasure chambers. However, these chambers were noticeably absent of treasure. To discover why we must look back 100 years to uncover what had taken place in Egypt, and England for that matter.
In Egypt, on December 29, 1835, Colonel Richard Howard Vyse, an officers of Her “Majesty’s” Army and had become well-known as an antiquarian (later called archaeologists).
Archaeologist were becoming famous during this period, reading papers to distinguished societies, receiving public accolades, and notability receiving appointments by the Queen.
It is not known whether Vyse went to Egypt with fame in mind or a duty to her “Majesty”, but once there he was caught by the fever of daily discoveries by many scholars, and laymen of treasures, mummies and tombs. The fever for discoveries were at such a pitch you could liken it to the Gold Rush in America, which took place interestingly around the same period.
But in Egypt, and perhaps in America too, there were stories, legends and theories being shared about hidden chambers inside the Great Pyramid.
Within days of his arrival, Vyse offered to fund, Giovanni Battista Caviglia’s dig, who had been searching for a hidden chamber inside the Great Pyramid, if he would accept Vyse as a co-discoverer. Caviglia immediately rejected his offer and Vyse left Egypt for Beirut in February 1836, only to return in October the same year, even more determined to make a discovery.
During his earlier visit, Vyse had befriended a copper mill superintendent, J. R. Hill, known for his crafty dealings; and lead Vyse to someone who could find him a Firman (a concession decree) for Egyptian government giving him sole excavation rights at Giza.
With this, Vyse went to the British Consul Col. Campbell (later created/appointed, not original), for the necessary documentation. To his unfortunate discovery , the Firman gave the British Consul Campbell and Sloane as the co-permitees, and designated Caviglia as the works’ supervisor.
Outlined by Vyse in Operations Carried on at the Pyramids of Gizeh in 1837, he supposedly paid Caviglia 200 dollars on November 2, 1836, his first subscription, and left Giza for a sightseeing tour.
When Vyse returned to Giza on January 24, 1837, he was outraged to find Caviglia and his workmen busy digging up mummies from tombs around the pyramids. Vyse’s fury subsided only when Caviglia asserted he had something important to show him, writing by the pyramids’ builders!
The excavations at the tombs showed that the ancient masons sometimes marked the pre-cut stones with red paint, and such markings, Caviglia proclaimed, was found at the base of the Second Pyramid. However, when examined later, the “red paint” was said to be natural discolorations in the stone.
However, Caviglia did discover “air channels” leading from the “King’s Chamber,” and he was convinced there were secret chambers higher up, reachable via a (crawl space) crawlway.
Although, Caviglia and Col. Campbell were more interested in finding mummies (which was what every museum wanted), Vyse demanded work be concentrated there. Vyse notes in his journal that Caviglia had even gone so far as to name a large tomb he found “Campbell’s Tomb”.
It should be noted, names are never spoken nor given haphazardly by those of secret societies. The same is true for the construction of monuments and buildings; which are given considerable thought to detail, aligned geometrically, to evoke spirit.
Hence, naming something which it is not Suppose to BE, is never done for extreme circumstances will undoubtedly ensue.
Noted by Dr. Selim Hassan in the 1935 news article , “It is called Campbell’s Tomb, on Masonic and Rosicrucian plans and that shaft complex ended in a spacious room, in the centre of which was another shaft that descended to a roomy court flanked with seven side chambers”.
The knowledge of the mystery schools was strengthened by a series of remarkable discoveries in 1935 that provided proof of
additional passageways and chambers interlacing the area below the Pyramids. The Giza complex showed major elements of being a purposely built, uniting structure with the Sphinx, the Great Pyramid and the Temple of the Solar-men directly related to each other, above and below the ground.
“The walls are beautifully sculpted with scenes, inscriptions and emblems of particularly the lotus flower.” (Speaking of Campbell’s Tomb. Image from Campbell’s Apartment). “The descriptions of alabaster vessels and the emblematic lotus flower have remarkable parallels with what was found in the temple-workshop on the summit of Mt Sinai/Horeb by Sir William Petrie in 1904“. —Dr. Selim Hassan, wrote an extensive report which was published in 1944, under the title Excavations at Giza (10 Volumes).
There were additional underground rooms, chambers, temples and hallways discovered, some with vertical circular stone support columns, and others with wall carvings of delicate figures of goddesses clothed in beautiful apparel. Dr Selim Hassan’s report described other magnificently carved figures and many beautifully colored friezes. Author and Researcher, Rosicrucian H. Spencer Lewis recorded that he was “deeply impressed” with the images. It is not known where the rare specimens of art and relics are today, but some were rumored to have been smuggled out of Egypt by private collectors.
After the discovery of Campbell’s Tomb, Vyse was determined to run his own show and moved from Cairo to the site of the pyramids. “I naturally [italic mine] wished to make some discoveries before I returned to England,” he admitted in his journal on January 27, 1837.
In the following weeks, the rift between Caviglia and Vyse widened, with Vyse making various accusations of Caviglia. Then, on February 11, the two had a violent argument. On the 12th, Caviglia made major discoveries in Campbell’s Tomb: a sarcophagus inscribed with hieroglyphs and masons’ red-paint markings on the stone walls of the tomb.
On the 13th, Vyse discharged Caviglia and ordered him away from the site.
Caviglia returned only once, on the 15th, to pick up his belongings. For years to follow, he made “dishonorable accusations” against Vyse. Why?
Vyse own journal list Caviglia as the discover of Campbell’s Tomb, although Vyse is later credited with it. But perhaps the real issue has to do with the actions that followed.
Vyse secretly entered the Great Pyramid on the night of February 12, accompanied by John Perring—an engineer with the Egyptian Public Works Department and dabbler in Egyptology—whom Vyse met through (the crafty) Mr. Hill. The two examined an intriguing crevice that had developed in a granite block above Davison’s Chamber; when a reed was pushed in, it went through unbent; there was obviously space beyond that point.
What schemes did the two concoct during that secret night visit?
We can only guess from future events. The facts are that Vyse dismissed Caviglia the next morning and put Perring on his payroll. In his journal, Vyse confided: “I am determined to carry on the excavations above the roof of (Davison’s) Chamber, where I expect to find a sepulchral apartment.”
Vyse put more men and money behind the search, while royalty and other dignitaries came to inspect the finds at Campbell’s Tomb. Vyse ordered his men to bore into the shoulder of the Sphinx, hoping to find its masons’ markings. Unsuccessful, he refocused his attention on the Hidden Chamber.
By mid-March, Vyse faced a new problem: other projects were luring away his workmen. He doubled their pay, if only they would work day and night: time, he realized, was running out. In desperation, Vyse threw caution to the winds, and ordered the use of explosives to blast his way through the stones that blocked his progress.
By March 27, the workmen managed to cut a small hole through the granite slabs. Thereafter, Vyse discharged the foreman and on the following day, Vyse wrote, “I inserted a candle at the end of a rod through a small hole that had been made in the chamber above Davison’s, and I had the mortification of finding that it was a chamber of construction like that below it.” He had found the Hidden Chamber!
Using gunpowder to enlarge the hole, Vyse entered the newly discovered chamber on March 30—accompanied by Mr. Hill. They
both examined it thoroughly. It was hermetically sealed (definition below), with no opening whatsoever. Its floor consisted of the rough side of the large granite slabs that formed the ceiling of Davison’s Chamber below.
“A black sediment was equally distributed all over the floor, showing each footstep.” (The nature of this black powder, which was “accumulated to some depth,” has never been ascertained.) “The ceiling was beautifully polished and had the finest joints.”
Vyse attest, “The chamber, it was clear, had never been entered before; yet it contained neither sarcophagus nor treasure. It was bare—completely empty.”
Vyse ordered the hole enlarged, and sent a message to the British Consul announcing that he had (by way of orders) named the new compartment “Wellington’s Chamber.”
In the evening, “Mr. Perring and Mr. Mash having arrived, we went into Wellington’s Chamber and took various measurements, and in doing so we found the quarry marks.”
What a sudden stroke of luck
They were similar to the red-painted quarry marks found in tombs outside the pyramid. Somehow, Vyse and Hill missed them entirely when they thoroughly inspected the chamber by themselves. But joined by Mr. Perring and by Mr. Mash—a civil engineer who was present at Perring’s invitation—there were four witnesses to the unique discovery.
The fact that Wellington’s Chamber was almost identical to Davison’s led Vyse to suspect that there was yet another chamber above it. For no given reason Vyse dismissed on April 4 the remaining foreman. On April 14, the British Consul and the Austrian Consul General visited the site. They requested that copies be made of the masons’ markings. Vyse put Perring and Mash to work—but instructed them to copy first the earlier-discovered markings in Campbell’s tomb; the unique ones inside the Great Pyramid could somehow wait.
With liberal use of gunpowder, the compartment above Wellington’s (Vyse named it after Lord Nelson) was broken into on April 25. It was as empty as the others (or so they say…), its floor also covered with the mysterious black dust. Vyse reported that he found “several quarry marks inscribed in red upon the blocks, particularly on the west side.”
All along, Mr. Hill was going in and out of the newly found chambers. On the 27th Mr. Hill—not Perring or Mash—copied the quarry marks. Vyse reproduced the ones from Nelson’s Chamber (though not the ones from Wellington’s) in his book.
On May 7, the way was blasted through into one more chamber above Nelson’s, which Vyse named temporarily after Lady Arbuthnot.
Interestingly, his journal entry makes no mention of any quarry marks, although they were later found there in profusion. What was striking about the new markings was that they included cartouches—which could only mean royal names—in profusion.
On May 18, a Dr. Walni “applied for copies of the characters found in the Great Pyramid, in order to send them to Mr. Rosellini,” an Egyptologist who had specialized in the decipherment of royal names. Vyse turned the request down outrightly.
The next day, in the company of Lord Arbuthnot, Mr. Brethel and Mr. Raven, Vyse entered Lady Arbuthnot’s Chamber and the four “compared Mr. Hill’s drawings with the quarry marks in the Great Pyramid; and “we afterward signed an attestation to their accuracy.” Soon thereafter, the final vaulted chamber was broken into, and more mark-ings—including a royal cartouche—were found.” Vyse then proceeded to Cairo and submitted the authenticated copies of the writings on the stones to the British Embassy, for official forwarding to London.
The Authenticity of the ‘quarry-marks’
As one might almost expect, these inscriptions have become a point of contention, as it was been claimed that they contain spelling errors from a well known book on hieroglyphics that Col. Vyse was known to have had with him when he made the discoveries. Other findings by Col. Vyse have also been questioned over their authenticity, and therefore possibly discredit him. It was also suggested by the grandson of Humphries Brewer, the master mason who was engaged by Vsye to blow his way into the pyramid, and who was witness to the cartouches being painted. He objected, and was expelled from the site for disagreeing with the action. (Ref: Sitchin, Stairway to Heaven, Table 146 a,b, page. 301)
The impact of Vyse’s discoveries was great, and his acceptance assured, after he managed to quickly obtain a confirmation from the experts of the British Museum in London.
When the facsimiles made by Mr. Hill reached the Museum (when exactly their analysis reached Vyse, is not clear); but he made the Museum’s opinion (by the hand of its hieroglyphics expert Samuel Birch) part of his chronicle of May 27, 1837.
On the face of it, the long analysis confirmed Vyse’s expectations: the names in the cartouches could be read as Khufu or variations thereof: just as Herodotus had written, Cheops was the builder of the Great Pyramid.
But in the excitement which followed, little attention was paid to the many if’s and but’s in the Museum’s opinion. It also contained the clue that tipped us off to the forgery: the forger’s clumsy mistake.
To begin with, Mr. Birch was uneasy about the orthography and script of the many markings. He writes:
“The symbols or hieroglpyhs traced in red by the sculptor, or mason, upon the stones in the chambers of the Great Pyramid are apparently quarry marks,” he observed in his opening paragraph; the qualification at once followed: “Although not very legible, owing to their having been written in semi-hieratic or linear-hieroglyphic characters, they possess points of considerable interest… . ”
What puzzled Mr. Birch was that markings presumably from the beginning of the Fourth Dynasty were made in a script that started to appear only centuries later. Originating as pictographs—”written pictures”—the writing of hieroglyphic symbols required great skill and long training; so, in time, in commercial transactions, a more quickly written and simpler, more linear script referred to as hieratic came into use. The hieroglyphic symbols discovered by Vyse thus belonged to another period.
They were also very indistinct and Mr. Birch had great difficulty in reading them:
“The meaning of the hieroglyphics following the prenomen in the same linear hand as the cartouche, is not very obvious… . The symbols following the name are very indistinct.”
Many of them looked to him “written in characters very nearly hieratic”—from an even much later period than the semi-hieratic characters. Some of the symbols were very unusual, never seen in any other inscription in Egypt:
“The cartouche of Suphis” (Cheops), he wrote, “is followed by a hieroglyphic to which it would be difficult to find a parallel.”
Other symbols were “equally difficult to solution”. Mr. Birch was also puzzled by “a curious sequence of symbols” in the upper-most, vaulted chamber (named by Vyse “Campbell’s Chamber”). There, the hieroglyphic symbol for “good, gracious” was used as a numeral—a usage never discovered before or since. Those unusually written numerals were assumed to mean “eighteenth year” (of Khufu’s reign).
No less puzzling to him were the symbols which followed the royal cartouche and which were “in the same linear hand as the cartouche.” He assumed that they spelled out a royal title, such as “Mighty in Upper and Lower Egypt.” The only similarity that he could find to this row of symbols was that of “a title that appears on the coffin of the queen of Amasis” of the Saitic period. He saw no need to stress that the Pharaoh Amasis had reigned in the sixth century B.C.—more than 2,000 years after Khufu!
Whoever daubed the red-paint markings reported by Vyse had thus employed a writing method (linear), scripts (semi-hieratic and hieratic) and titles from various periods—but none from the time of Khufu, and all from later periods. Their writer was also not too literate: many of his hieroglyphs were either unclear, incomplete, out of place, erroneously employed or completely unknown.
Turning to the main issue on which he was requested to give an opinion—the identity of the Pharaoh named in the inscriptions—Birch threw a bombshell: there were two, and not just one, royal names within the pyramid!
Was it possible that two kings had built the same pyramid? And if so, who were they?
Egyptology has been polarized into two primary Camps, Modern Day Camp and the Oral Tradition Camp.
The Orthodox camp follows the standard version of history
that claims the Great Pyramid was utilized as a tomb by Khufu. Yet, no one has ever found any signs of a non-intrusive burial within any pyramid. The only sign that the Great Pyramid was even related to Khufu is a glyph in an upper chamber that was most likely forged by Perring. They view the entire subterranean section as a mistake. They believe the 1,200 square foot subterranean chamber was unfinished and left abandoned. They acknowledge that the “Queen’s chamber” has nothing to do with any Queen, and The granite box of the so called “King’s chamber” had no lid.
Modern-day Camp: Physicists and engineers view the Great Pyramid as a machine.
They show physical evidence to reinforce their claim:
Alternate Camp: Indigenous Teachers, engineers, physicists, mathematicians,
and architects.The oral indigenous teachings state:
Did these buildings actually come from an earlier time of a more
And yet there is a Third “Subcamp”, which may explain Vyse’s behavior:
The so-called Mystery schools: (Masons, Rosicruscians, Templars, etc.)
view the building (and its chambers) as a sonic initiation machine that leads to
The Egyptians called “The First Times”, a mysterious group of “gods” that appeared to initiate the survivors in the rudiments of civilization.
From Thoth and Osiris in Egypt, to Quetzacoatal and Viracocha in the Americas, traditions worldwide subscribe the origins of civilization to an evolved group, which evidence from around the world, indicates these people were the HEIRS; survivors of previous civilizations.
Here is what modern society would have us believe to be the meaning of the these words.
Heir: A person who inherits or is entitled by law or by the terms of a will to inherit the estate of another. 2. A person who succeeds or is in line to succeed.
Hier: shortened for hieroglyphics; but also Hierarchy, a system in which members of an organization or society are ranked according to relative status or authority.
And to a lesser degree these “meanings” are correct.
But could the Scientific meaning be closer to the truth?

The Language of the Shining Ones
Careful scientific examination of the world’s key pyramid sites, reveal them to be sophisticated harmonic structures, not only mirroring positions of the planets and stellar systems but, designed to mimic the chakras and harmonic cavities of the human body. Even each stone within the Great Pyramid is harmonically tuned to a specific frequency or musical tone. The sarcophagus in the centre of the Great Pyramid is tuned to the frequency of the human heart beat.
Experiments, conducted by Dr. Hurtak and colleagues at the Great Pyramid (and other sites in the South Americas), demonstrate the pyramids to be voice-activated.
Intoning specific ancient sounds, the scientific team produced visible standing waves of light, above and within the pyramids and were even able to penetrate, hitherto, inaccessible chambers. Subsequent discoveries indicate the ancient priest-scientists employed some sort of harmonic sound technology within the temple structures.
The lost Enochian knowledge reveals the mother tongue as a “language of Light”. It is the primal seed language, introduced at the beginning of this time cycle. Modern research confirms, the most ancient form Hebrew to be a natural language, the alphabetic forms emerging from the phosphene flare patterns of the brain. The same shapes, in fact, born of a spinning vortex.
Encoding the natural waveform geometries of the physical world, is a harmonic language, mimicking the waveform properties of light. The “keys” Enoch speaks of, turn out to be sound keys, keys to be vibratory matrix of reality itself, the mythic “Power of the World”. The Enochian knowledge describes sonic equations, encoded within the ancient mantras and god names, capable of directly affect the nervous system and producing profound effect of healing and higher consciousness states.
As the ancient texts declare, “If you would speak with the gods you must first learn the language of the gods.”
The ancient cabalistic “Tree Of Life” is now coming to be viewed as a live vibrating structure, rather than a fixed tape recording. Many modern scientists, regard DNA as a shimmering, waveform configuration, able to be modified by light, radiation, magnetic fields or sonic pulses. The legacy of Thoth/Enoch suggests this “language of Light”, the harmonic science of the ancients, actually affect DNA.
We, are born with an instinctive knowledge of Everything. It is in your Bloodline (Lineage). It is the keys, the (DNA) spiral within your genetic make-up which unlocks the gateway to the stars.

John Williams Campbell was, as his wife once said, “a showman.” [ in more ways than one.]
Born in Brooklyn, Campbell never attended college. Instead, in 1898 at the age of 18, he entered his father’s firm, the Credit Clearing House. Little by little he worked his way up until by the 1920s he was president of the company and was appointed to the board of the New York Central Railroad.
Campbell rented the space to be closer to the hub of the New York Central Railroad (Cornelius Vanderbilt’s train empire), of which he was a major stockholder.
History of the Clearing House:
A historical perspective is helpful for understanding the economics of clearinghouses and the implications of their operations for financial stability. The first important clearinghouse in the United States, the New York Clearing House, was founded by New York City’s commercial banks in 1853 to streamline the clearing and settling of checks. By one account, before the New York Clearing House was set up, the clearing and settlement process involved employees from 60 banks crisscrossing each other’s paths through the city streets to present checks, a time-consuming process filled with “confusion, disputes and unavoidable blunders.” The establishment of the clearinghouse improved the situation almost immediately, resulting in significant savings in time, effort, and financial costs. By the late 19th century, check clearinghouses had been established across the United States.
The design is inspired by a never built Metlife towering over Grand Central Terminal project from Le Corbusier and by the slender Pirelli Tower in Milan (Gio Ponti and Pier Luigi Nervi, 1959). It consisted of a tower of 49 stories resting on a 10 story base. The exterior is covered with concrete panels to strengthen the building visually. The 246 meter / 808ft tall building was completed in 1963 and incorporates an immense 390,700 m2 office space.
Metlife (Pan Am) Building
While researching Campbell’s Apartment, and Grand Central Station. I thought it was strange how the area, (Midtown) 42nd Street and Grand Central Station, has always been in my life! Even as a young girl, 14 yrs old, I worked as a summer intern for 3 years consecutively at the New York State Department of Commerce (pictured above), located in the Helmsley Building 230 Park Ave (north side of Grand Central Station) .
The NYS Department of Commerce had 5 divisions, Motion Pictures, Tourism (they produced those I Love New York Commercials back in the day), Small Business, Import and Export, Minority and Women’s Business divisions.
Here is a picture inside of the lobby, all decked-out in gold!
The Helmsley Building is a 35-story building located at 230 Park Avenue between East 45th and East 46th Streets in Midtown Manhattan, New York City, which was built in 1929 as the New York Central Building, and was designed by Warren & Wetmore, the architects of Grand Central Terminal, in the Beaux-Arts style. Before the erection of the Pan Am Building – now the MetLife Building – this building stood out over the city’s second most prestigious avenue as the tallest structure in the great “Terminal City” complex around Grand Central.
