The Sirius Mystery
New Scientific Evidence for Alien Contact
5,000 Years Ago

by Robert K. G. Temple

How is it possible for the secret traditions of an African tribe to contain detailed data on the star Sirius which modern astronomers have only just discovered? Why can this strange information be traced back to the even older civilisations of Sumer and Egypt? The most ancient and sacred traditions of the Dogon tribe in West Africa maintain that the existence of civilisation on earth is a result of contact from inhabitants of a planet in the system of the star Sirius. Central to their cosmology is a body of knowledge concerning the system of the star Sirius that is astounding in its
accuracy of detail, including specific information only recently accessible to modern science, notably the prediction of a third star which was only confirmed in 1995.

Robert Temple's awe-inspiring detective work traces the traditions of the Dogon and three related tribes back 5,000 years to the ancient Mediterranean cultures of Sumer and Egypt.

He shows that these ancient civilisations possessed not only great wealth and learning, but also a knowledge dependent on physics and astrophysics, which they claimed was imported to them by visitors from Sirius. Temple shows how these discoveries will revolutionise our understanding of the Sphinx. Here for the first time he also reveals that the very earliest myths of the Greeks and the Chinese contain related claims about the founding of civilisation by amphibious beings. Many authors have speculated on the subject of extraterrestrial contact in ancient times, but never before has such detailed evidence been presented. The result of over thirty years of meticulously documented research, The Sirius Mystery presents a radical reappraisal of the beginnings of civilisation and of early ancient history. The implications of this material for humanity may be entirely unparalleled: 'The best questions,' writes Temple,are the ones which often remain unanswered for a long time and lead us down new avenues of thought and experience!

Excerpt from the 1st chapter:

From all these passages we can see quite clearly that in the fifth century BC, when Herodotus was an eye-witness, large stretches of water were far more important in Egypt than we assume today. The amazing account of the Great Labyrinth, of the three unidentified pyramids of considerable size adjoining it, and of the artificial lake, are astonishing in themselves, and have never been satisfactorily explained to my knowledge. Certainly the huge artificial lake sounds like a very good base for visiting amphibians, and is the sort of thing amphibians rather than men would have constructed. But since no one today seems to have much idea of where on earth the ruins of all this are to be found (although the Egyptologist Sayce thought it might be near the Pyramid of Hawara23), we shall not detain ourselves with speculations on this subject here. I have mentioned it in order to gather together Herodotus's various statements about substantial hydraulic engineering works bringing Nile water in by channels to dry places, and the extent to which the flooded Nile and a huge lake spread water over Egypt to the foot of the pyramids.

Let us now analyse exactly what it is that Herodotus says about the water brought into the Giza Plateau. The account is somewhat garbled, and the fact that Herodotus did not know of the existence of the Sphinx (other than, possibly a head sticking out of the sand, which he didn't bother to mention; and who is to say even that it was visible?) must be borne in mind. He mentions 'the underground chambers on the hill whereon the pyramids stand; the king meant to be burial places for himself, and encompassed them with water, bringing in a channel from the Nile'. The first thing to be pointed out is that the testimony explicitly contradicts any notion that King Cheops intended himself to be buried inside the Great Pyramid! Herodotus clearly states that the king intended himself to be buried in the underground chambers on the hill whereon the pyramids stand, meaning underground chambers in the Giza Plateau, not underneath or within any actual pyramid. This very clear evidence appears to have been willfully neglected by the Egyptological community, who insist that Cheops was the builder of the Great Pyramid and that he intended it as his own tomb. But they are overtly contradicted in this by Herodotus.

The next thing to note is that the burial-places on the Giza Plateau, or at least one of them, were 'encompassed with water'; the word encompassed indicates that somewhere on the Giza Plateau an important site was surrounded by water. How could this be without a retaining-pit? And where is such a retaining-pit on the Giza Plateau except around the Sphinx? Now let us look at the second passage from Herodotus, where he speaks of water from the Nile which 'comes in through a built passage and encircles an island, in which, they say, Cheops himself lies'.
