Portions of this conversation where televised on April 2, 2007 in Poland on Tvn-24.

Joanna Maro: "What are you searching for at Giza?"

Patrick Geryl: "There have been rumors for thousands of years about an age-old time capsule hidden in the earth of Egypt, that has fired the imagination of the general public. This capsule is supposed to be infinitely more important than the treasures of Tutankhamen.
The reports are that the 'Hall of Records' has secret chambers filled with technological tour de forces of a forgotten civilization that was much older than the Egyptian one.
In other words: the quest for the spiritual and cultural origins of civilization, and its true destiny"

Maro: "Why do you want to excavate it? What is your exact drive?"

Geryl: "The 'Circle of Gold' contains information through which the pre- tidal wave civilization was able to calculate the exact day of the previous polar reversal. That is to say, the moment when the North Pole changed place with the South Pole, accompanied by a huge catastrophe. The population was destroyed worldwide. For that reason they wanted to preserve their discoveries for later generations.
"When we dig up this information it will have world-shocking consequences. It will turn the complete archaeological world upside-down. The present astronomers will be scared out of their wits.
Fifteen thousand years ago a civilization ruling on earth was able to theoretically calculate the sunspot cycle, something our present sun specialists are still not able to do! With the help of this, they knew how to calculate exactly the date of the previous catastrophe. They escaped to Egypt and South America, where they built a new culture. We therefore have to take Noah's story literally."

Maro: "Can you give us a more detailed description of what you hope to find in the 'Hall of Records'?"

Geryl: "The archives we can find there concern a civilization that had the same background and culture as the Old Egyptians, as well as the same laws, arts and diplomacy. And let's not forget the secret knowledge hidden in their Holy Scriptures."

Maro: "What else can be found in this 'Circle of Gold'?"

Geryl: "Incredibly much more than is easily imaginable. In the middle, there is a circle that depicts the Zodiac of Dendera. The twelve star signs that are depicted are extremely large in size. The second circle contains more complex things. Thirty-six elements are depicted in it, through which they were able to calculate beforehand the previous catastrophe. This was of vital importance. Without these calculations nobody could have survived that catastrophe."

"Furthermore, we see depicted there Geb, the last ruler of Aha-Men-Ptah (Atlantis), who died in the catastrophe. He is carrying on his head the weight of the earth, which will be reborn through his wife Nut. She managed to escape and together with the survivors, laid the foundations of the new fatherland."

"Without a proper knowledge of this mingling of historical and spiritual events you cannot properly reconstruct the history of Egypt. The big Sphinx, for example, is depicted as a lion, because the previous catastrophe took place in the Age of the Lion. On the Zodiac of Dendera you can see the broken lines under the lion. These lines form the symbol of a huge tidal wave."

"Furthermore, the 'Hall of Records' contains masses of hieroglyphs about the Exodus, in which Horus and Isis play a main role. There are also pictures that point to a new age, like those of Taurus and Aries. Also an indescribable planetary sphere is present, containing an immeasurable number of stars."

In short, the knowledge we can find there makes any other archaeological discovery fade away. Hopefully, we don't have to wait much longer for the discovery."

Maro: "Will you get part of the treasures?"

Geryl: "No, which is logical, by the way. They comprise a unique inheritance that belongs to a museum. And the discovery alone will invoke so much attention, that we will be able to cover the costs."

Maro: "How do you plan to actually start digging for the 'Hall of Records'?"

Geryl: "First we have to wait on the results of the measures from our geo-radar equipment."

Maro: "What sort of equipment is that?

Geryl: "The same that is used to search for hollow spaces. With the aid of it we looked through the sand to a depth of at least fifty meters."

Maro: "Do you think it lays there?"

Geryl: "In fact no. I think it is in the Labyrinth. This is about 100 kilometres from Giza. But my sponsor insisted to scan the Giza plateau first. Thereafter we will scan the Labyrinth."

Maro: "Any results?"

Geryl: "Here they are."

A new sandstorm is brewing on the outskirts of the Egyptian desert: newly released ground scans reveal that a team of Egyptian scientists has identified potential locations of tunnels and caves - on par with the controversial Hall of Records - in the immediate vicinity of the pyramids and the Sphinx.

The pyramids of Gizeh are built on a limestone plateau, which means that it has got the consistency of a cheese with lots of holes. Indeed, one cave on the plateau was actually incorporated into the internal layout of the pyramid - and may have contributed to why the Great Pyramid, the only pyramid that has an elaborate structure in the pyramid itself, has this unique internal structure.

It is therefore to be expected that elsewhere on the plateau, similar cavities, if not long tunnels, exist. This makes for intriguing possibilities, as some of these tunnels may have been used by the ancient Egyptians - or that other tunnels or caves may have been expanded, or new "halls" - such as the fabled Hall of Records - constructed.

In the 1990s, the so-called Osiris Shaft, located under the causeway of Khafre, became the subject of immense speculation. Today, it is believed that in ancient times, people used the water-filled shaft as a swimming-hole. The shaft descends in several places to a depth of nearly 100 feet (35m) below the plateau. When Zahi Hawass investigated the structure, the last level his team excavated was about 25m underground, and was completely filled with water.

On almost regular intervals, the temperature as to what might lie below the Gizeh plateau rises. Some years ago, Andrew Collins in "The Gods of Eden" argued that an entire layout of the Duat was potentially lying in wait of discovery underneath the plateau. It came at a time when others were speaking about the fabled Hall of Records, which according to some traditions would hold important relics of a bygone age, often said to predate Egypt itself (read: Atlantis).

More recently, not so much pyramid fever, but cavity fever, has risen again. Cavity fever has risen, if only because the groundwater in the area is rising too, and this might endanger the monuments. In some areas, flooding has already begun, caused by farming, urbanization and residential housing near temples. Reda Mohamed el-Damak, director of the Center of Studies and Designs for Water Projects at Cairo University's Faculty of Engineering, states that groundwater is posing the most serious threat to the Sphinx, carved from the bedrock of the Giza Plateau, and situated at lower altitude than the pyramids, who sit on the plateau, themselves. The latest measurement readings from the site show that groundwater is only 4 meters deep under the Sphinx.

This means, of course, that any tunnel that goes deeper than 4 meters around the area of the Sphinx, is now already under water. Anything inside, unless watertight, will therefore already be destroyed, if only because the water that is causing the problem is waste water. This does not bode well for people searching for the Hall of Records underneath this enigmatic monument.

In bygone days, dynamite was the preferred archaeological tool; today, only non-destructive methods are allowed and preservation is valued so much more than exploration. Of course, trying to find out what lies beneath without using a spade, is not an easy task.

Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) made its introduction in the 1970s, and has been used on the Gizeh plateau since the 1980s. In 1987, Yoshimura and Tonauchi used GPR to scan the inner structure of the Great Pyramid, the constitution of the Sphinx and to determine the age/era during which the Sphinx was used.

More recently, in 1998, Abbas Mohamed Abbas was asked to study how best to restore the Sphinx and its protection against groundwater penetration. But now, Abbas has been involved in a series of exploration work, rather than preservation.

In February 2006, Abbas returned to the Gizeh plateau with GPR technology, this time to 'investigate deep-wide parts of the plateau to reveal any hidden shafts or tunnels throughout the studied sectors." Nine areas of potential interest had been identified, which Abbas and his team subjected to a series of detailed scans.

Abbas' survey came about after Andrzej Wojcikiewicz contacted Belgian author Patrick Geryl in 2003, after reading the Polish edition of "The Orion Prophecy". In 2005, a team convened by Wojcikiewicz and including Geryl went to Egypt. The Polish team identified a series of locations, for which Abbas asked permission with the Department of Antiquities to scan parts of the Gizeh plateau - a project paid for by the Polish foundation.

In his report of his finding, appearing in NRIAG Journal of Geophysics, Abbas states that "the results of the survey support the possibility of the presence of undisclosed relics, of high value". These are powerful claims to make and they do go beyond the available evidence, which "merely" points out the presence of subterranean cavities.

The report states that they have identified two likely caves and one possible shaft, filled in with clays or sandy clays, one located close to the southern side of Khufu's pyramid, the second around the causeway of Khafre's pyramid. Other features "of less mass" have been delineated close to the eastern side of Khafre's pyramid and - no doubt of interest to some alternative historians - close to the entrance door to the northern side of the Sphinx.

Abbas and colleagues state that the cavities are at a fairly deep level, ranging from 12 to 25 metres below the surface, which is, of course, conform to e.g. the Osiris Shaft. Abbas also states that "The cave-like features could be ascribed to a tunnel section of at least 3 to 5 m width [...] it is like a void in the limestone rock." They conclude: "we can presume the existence of a momentous diversity of archaeological structures at the Pyramids plateau which remain, as yet, unexposed. These structures could be a linked net of tunnels and shafts that may well lead to precious tombs."

It is an enigmatic statement to make, and is either Abbas' wording to guarantee that future funding is received, or that he has additional data, not included in the report, that warrants his optimism. Since the completion of the survey, and the report, the Polish team has asked for permission to excavate at the Gizeh plateau in those areas where the ground scans have revealed cavities. So far, these proposals have been rejected.

Geryl is the author of The Orion Prophecy: Egyptian & Mayan Prophecies on the Cataclysm of 2012, The World Cataclysm in 2012: Maya Calendar Countdown and How to Survive 2012 .

The books were published in the United States by Adventures Unlimited Press.
