Cairo, Luxor, Aswan, Alexandria, Giza, Sohag, Qena, Sharqia,
Chris Dunn, author of: "The Giza Power Plant" and "Lost Technologies of Ancient Egypt" (now published in Arabic), will guide another group to examine the hard evidence that he discusses in both his books while holding discussions about reasonable, down-to-earth explanations for the anomalies and artifacts that are found throughout Egypt.
Leading discussions on this topic is sound engineer Robert Vawter. Robert has spent a lifetime working with concert and theatrical sound systems in live venues large and small as well as recording studios. He also has a degree in Archaeology, and has spent decades studying ancient Egypt and the pyramids. In 1997, Robert mapped the frequencies found within the SenNeferU pyramid at Dashur, from which he composed “The SeNeferU Sequence”. His work has been cited in numerous books, including "The Giza Power Plant".
Facilitating and guiding this tour is well-known and charismatic Egyptian Egyptologist, Mohamed Ibrahim. Mohamed is one of a new breed of Egyptian Egyptologists who respects his roots and the education he received in university, but also accepts that there is much more to learn about his ancestors’ technical accomplishments. Mohamed, who is an expert at reading hieroglyphs, will provide historical and cultural context throughout the tour.
