Magical Egypt: The Invisible Science
A growing body of evidence us suggesting a missing chapter in human history. Symbolist author and Egyptologist John Anthony West explores evidence of a sophisticated science behind the unexplainable accomplishments of Ancient Egypt. Was Ancient Egypt the inheritor of a body of scientific and spiritual knowledge from an even earlier civilization? Author / Mathematician Michael S Schneider discusses organic geometry and the role of the Fibonacci number series in growing life. West then demonstrates the presence of the Fibonacci series in the stages of construction of the temple of Karnak, also known as the "House of Life".

In the Fibonacci series of numbers, beginning with 0, each number represents the sum of the two previous numbers (0,1,1,2,3,5,8,13,21, etc.). This proves most fascinating because the Fibonacci series is prevalent throughout nature; to West, this pattern is nothing less than the voice of life itself. Organic growth is regulated in such a way that it maintains the balance of an object, be it a nautilus' chamber or a tree or a population of bees, and that natural balance can be broken down mathematically into the Fibonacci series.

Now take a look at a side of Egypt that is less well known:
Egypt as a birthplace of magic and the home of "mystery Schools".

I found this video fascinating, but it is just an introduction. West's ideas go against the grain of modern science and Egyptology, but - right or wrong - his ideas certainly deserve serious consideration.
