Suppressed By Scholars: The Mystery Of Twin Cultures On Opposite Sides Of The Atlantic

The ancient Egyptians (in Africa) and the ancient pre-Incas/Incas (in South America) evolved on opposite sides of the globe and were never in contact; yet both cultures mysteriously possessed the same strikingly identical body of ancient art, architecture, symbolism, mythology and religion. The Victorian-era scholars, faced with this enigma, concluded that both cultures must have been children of the same Golden Age parent civilization, “Atlantis.” Today, Egyptian/Inca parallels are not only being ignored by American and Western scholars, they’re being suppressed.

Many baffling and unsolved similarities link the ancient Egyptians and the ancient pre-Incas/Incas―even though both cultures evolved on opposite sides of the planet, separated by oceans.

Victorian-era scholars, faced with this enigma, believed both cultures inherited the same high wisdom from the same exceedingly older source—a shared “parent civilization” now lost to history. For the Victorians this common parent hypothesis explained the parallels well. These Victorian scholars called this common parent “Atlantis,” following Plato and the Classical historians.

Today, “establishment” scholars reject Atlantis, with peculiar hostility, while the parallels shared by the ancient pre-Incas/Incas and the ancient Egyptians are ignored.

Yet these same parallels were not ignored by the Victorians. Indeed, the most brilliant scholarly minds of the past believed Atlantis was real―and here’s why:ace


BOTH THE ANCIENT EGYPTIANS AND INCAS / PRE-INCAS…built stone pyramids and stepped pyramids in the desert along rivers and aligned with cardinal points. In both cases, deceased were interred within.space


BOTH THE EGYPTIANS AND INCAS / PRE-INCAS…Mummified their dead, which symbolized life beyond death. Mummies were interred inside pyramids, often with food offerings and personal belongings. Both cultures believed in life beyond death.

Mummies With Crossed Arms

BOTH THE EGYPTIANS AND INCAS / PRE-INCAS…Crossed the arms of their mummified dead. This was to show the “balance” state that one entered in death, as one lived a balanced life. The two arms denote opposites in balance, a left side and a right side crossed.space

Gold Funeral Masks

BOTH THE EGYPTIANS AND INCAS / PRE-INCAS…Placed gold masks upon their dead, symbolizing their entering back into eternity, the “other side” of the veil, the higher home in the heavens, which is eternal and spiritual, unlike earth, which is temporary and physical. It also conveys in an alchemical sense the idea that, while they were here, these eternal souls took on the lead of human form and turned it into gold.space

Antithetical Animal Jewelry

BOTH THE EGYPTIANS AND INCAS / PRE-INCAS…Adorned their dead with gold jewelry (including necklaces and bracelets) the ends of which are formed by twin animal heads facing outward, symbolizing our human/animal powers balanced and in an equal peaceful state and place of power and eternity. This “balance” state is how the alchemical transformation is achieved, hence the gold.space

Similar Stonemasonry

BOTH THE EGYPTIANS AND INCAS / PRE-INCAS…built very similar looking stonemasonry, even down to the detail of carving bulges or “bumps” in the stones (see detail). What is the rhyme, riddle and reason here? How can this be explained?space

Precision Stonework

BOTH THE ANCIENT EGYPTIANS AND INCAS / PRE-INCAS…created precision-like stone cuts in their masonry, such that a piece of paper can barely fit between stones. Often no mortar was used.  This symbolizes the quest to gain perfection, or nearness to perfection, which leads one closer to our spiritual and heavenly home and eternal source.space

Trapezoidal Doorways

BOTH THE ANCIENT EGYPTIANS AND INCAS / PRE-INCAS…built trapezoid doorways, signifying spiritual advancement upward. The trapezoid is similar to a triangle, which denotes ascension and spiritual transcendence. The trapezoid doorway is used by many ancient cultures. It relates a kind of futuristic state of humanity that occurred in the distant past, when people were calm and had attained nirvana; this doorway is the symbol of the high wisdom once possessed by our ancient ancestors.

BOTH THE ANCIENT EGYPTIANS AND INCAS / PRE-INCAS…designed twin symmetrical serpents above the trapezoidal doorway entrance to their temples. The idea of balancing the opposing energies is certainly presented here, via these twin animals in symmetrical balanced poses. This “balanced opposites” image seems to be the “ideal” that is taught within the building that is entered through these doors.space

Elongated Skulls

BOTH THE ANCIENT EGYPTIANS AND INCAS / PRE-INCAS…elongated the skulls of their children to sharpen senses and improve spiritual insight. This seemingly-bizarre practice has not truly raised the eyebrows of modern scholars, not nearly as much as it should.space

Obelisks (With Hieroglyphics)

BOTH THE ANCIENT EGYPTIANS AND INCAS / PRE-INCAS…built and erected sacred obelisks as devices of profound male power, fertility, birth, longevity, strength. Great reverence was given to obelisks; they were among the most revered landmarks.space

Earthquake-Proof Temples (With Picture Writing)

BOTH THE ANCIENT EGYPTIANS AND INCAS / PRE-INCAS…built earthquake-proof buildings by using the same inward slant design, which has withstood the test of time.space

Solar Religion

BOTH THE ANCIENT EGYPTIANS AND INCAS / PRE-INCAS…used solar symbolism as a definitive part of their religion, which was identical. In Egypt the solar deity was Ra, in Peru the solar deity was Inti. In both cultures, you are the solar deity; the sun is a symbol of you, of your soul. You are a sol. You are an eternal divine sun. You have voluntarily Incarnated in matter, but now have amnesia of your true spiritual Self, you’ve lost your way home.space

Parallel Solar Symbolism

BOTH THE ANCIENT EGYPTIANS AND INCAS / PRE-INCAS…used animal deities in symmetrical poses flanking a central solar emblem. Just as the sun strikes a perfect balance between Winter and Summer, the extreme Cold and extreme Hot seasons…so it is vital for our own inner suns (the sun symbolizes our eternal soul or Self) to balance our own positive and negative twin animal energies, urges, instincts, appetites, etc. in order to stay in balance and in harmony with nature.space

Animal On Forehead

BOTH THE ANCIENT EGYPTIANS AND INCAS / PRE-INCAS…used the “animal on the forehead motif” to evoke the power of the Third Eye. Both cultures understood that we can create a trancelike state where we “awaken” our so-called “Mind’s Eye,” “Inner Eye,” or “Third Eye,” a symbol of spiritual illumination thought of as existing near the forehead above and between the two eyes―exactly where the animal is placed in the image above.space

Cross Symbol (Chakana / Ankh)

BOTH THE ANCIENT EGYPTIANS AND INCAS / PRE-INCAS…used the stepped design motif, which symbolizes the gradual ascent the initiate makes on his / her journey from lower man to ascended human being. Rome wasn’t built in a day; you don’t find your “Christ within” or your “Buddha within” in one day. Ascension takes time and effort.space

“Triptych” Three-Door Temples (Indicates Same Religion)

BOTH THE ANCIENT EGYPTIANS AND INCAS / PRE-INCAS…built the same identical Triptych temples. The Triptych design is a worldwide architectural phenomenon that graces the facades of temples, and that symbolizes the same Universal Religion practiced all over the ancient world. The religion is based on the same “balance of opposites” formula described above. The twin outer doors symbolize opposites (the left-side / right-side of our lower temporary self) while the middle door symbolizes the central point of eternity (the centered higher eternal Self). Triptych Temples were later inherited by the Gothic cathedral builders, the Freemasons. LEARN MORE HERE.space

Metal Clasps

BOTH THE ANCIENT EGYPTIANS AND INCAS / PRE-INCAS…carved stones that were tightly bound and fitted together with the use of metal clasps. What are the chances that this technique evolved, after millions of years of human evolution, in the same exact spec of time (give or take 1,000 years) on opposite sides of the globe?space

Staff God Icon

BOTH THE ANCIENT EGYPTIANS AND INCAS / PRE-INCAS…revered the “Staff God Icon,” which is nothing less than the lost crucifix of the ancient Universal Religion described above. Not yet documented by scholars, the Staff God Icon is found everywhere around the ancient world; it symbolizes the perfected human being. LEARN MORE IN THIS BOOK.space

Inward Slanting (Earthquake Proof) Buildings

BOTH THE ANCIENT EGYPTIANS AND INCAS / PRE-INCAS…built similar looking inward slanting tombs and temples.space

Anthropoid Coffins

BOTH THE ANCIENT EGYPTIANS AND INCAS / PRE-INCAS…designed anthropomorphic coffins for the deceased and designed those coffins to look like the local god or hero who had defied death and who had lived to tell about it. This is the example given for the masses to follow, for we all must defy death (in the end) by looking for and finding true eternity within.space

Third Eye Solar Circle On Forehead

BOTH THE ANCIENT EGYPTIANS AND INCAS / PRE-INCAS…depicted circle shapes on the human forehead indicating where the Third Eye or Circle Eye goes:

“A cyclops in Greek mythology and later Roman mythology, was a member of a primordial race of giants, each with a single eye in the middle of his forehead. The name is widely thought to mean “circle-eyed”.


Solar Image Associated With Circle Eye In Head

BOTH THE ANCIENT EGYPTIANS AND INCAS / PRE-INCAS…decorated their Third Eye or Circle Eye with the imagery of the sun. The sun is an eye in the heavens; many ancient civilizations depicted the sun as an Eye, not just the Egyptians and Incas.space

Single Eye Symbols

BOTH THE ANCIENT EGYPTIANS AND INCAS / PRE-INCAS…depicted “sun eye symbols”, both associating the sun with an eye and vice versa. Both cultures knew that the single Eye (the Mind’s Eye or Third Eye) sees the inner sun (the inner soul).space

Megalithic Architecture

BOTH THE ANCIENT EGYPTIANS AND INCAS / PRE-INCAS…built their most important temples using massive stones each weighing hundreds of tons.space

Reed Boats

BOTH THE ANCIENT EGYPTIANS AND INCAS / PRE-INCAS…built parallel reed boats.space

Floating Deities

BOTH THE ANCIENT EGYPTIANS AND INCAS / PRE-INCAS…depicted floating deities.space

Phallic Symbols

BOTH THE ANCIENT EGYPTIANS AND INCAS / PRE-INCAS…depicted phallic symbols and associated these symbols with fertility.space


BOTH THE ANCIENT EGYPTIANS AND INCAS / PRE-INCAS…depicted spirals to symbolize our entrance / exit to / from the material /spiritual worlds, which worlds encompass both sides of our eternal being.space

Elaborate Temples

BOTH THE ANCIENT EGYPTIANS AND INCAS / PRE-INCAS…designed and built similar-looking temples.space

Symmetrical Serpents Balancing

BOTH THE ANCIENT EGYPTIANS AND INCAS / PRE-INCAS…used symmetry in much of their art, balancing left / right. Often used serpents in symmetrical poses.space

Master Craftsmanship

BOTH THE ANCIENT EGYPTIANS AND INCAS / PRE-INCAS…used very similar styles of stone-craftsmanship.space

Symmetrical Art

BOTH THE ANCIENT EGYPTIANS AND INCAS / PRE-INCAS…designed similar-looking artwork, which focused on symmetry and esoteric symbolism.space

Aten Hieroglyph (Circle With Dot In Center)

BOTH THE ANCIENT EGYPTIANS AND INCAS / PRE-INCAS…depicted their solar deity as a circle with a dot in the middle, which was also a symbol of the Self in both cultures.space

Evidence Of Atlantis

The Incas and the Egyptians are indeed profoundly similar.  Having uncovered many of these parallels themselves, the Victorian scholars believed the two cultures were children of the same ancestral Mother Culture or Golden Age “Atlantis” culture.

Following Plato and some of the Classical historians, they believed Atlantis sank into the Atlantic ocean following a kind of Flood-like catastrophe, but left behind outposts on either side of the Atlantic ocean that preserved its culture.

Neither Egyptian nor Inca was in contact with the other, yet nevertheless both shared a common heritage.

Western scholars and academic institutions are grossly ignoring Atlantis. Worse, they are suppressing the evidence and mystery surrounding these many bizarre Inca / Egyptian cultural parallels (possibly because the powers that be know these parallels will lead to Atlantis).

We need to remember that these Egyptian/Inca parallels were plain as day to past Victorian scholars. From the benefit of this perspective we can thus see how the parallels are not just being ignored by Western academic institutions, they’re being suppressed.

Why are scholars suppressing this evidence?space

The Academic Cover-Up

These scholars—mainstream historians and archaeologists—are fundamentally honest and hard-working people who perform the extraordinarily laborious task of unearthing artifacts from our ancient past.

The problem is that they are locked into a particular paradigm that sees our society as the apex and pinnacle of the human story. They view history as a straightforward evolutionary process, from caveman to today’s highly technological civilization, which in their minds is the “supreme” one.

They are 100% locked into this “evolutionary” idea of how history works, and so it’s very difficult for them to accept that deep in the remote past there existed a civilization or Golden Age that was far more advanced than we are―spiritually, psychologically, technologically―and that was able to do things that we cannot.

Cultural evolution is the lens through which they view reality, and so they dismiss any anomalous evidence or find plausible explanations for any evidence that does not jive with this reality.

Moreover, being a “scholar” or an “academic” is a job, a profession, which is part of a larger structure. If you want to get a job as a “scholar” or “academic” and if you want to get published or win research grants or move along in the profession you absolutely need to buy into its mindset; this means buying into the evolutionary paradigm. If you don’t buy in then you simply won’t get hired, and you won’t climb the ladder and move up.

This is the simple way in which research into the human past is being controlled. But controlled by who?―and why?space

The Invisible Government

By controlling major academic institutions and the mass media, a vastly wealthy elite group of powerful corporate families is successfully hiding historical and spiritual truths of our ancient past. The goal of this group is to maintain a secretive global system of economic and political tyranny that their forefathers established more than a century ago that was once termed the “Invisible Government” by influential American leaders.

More specifically, this elite are concealing the fact that there once existed a highly-sophisticated “Golden Age” civilization on earth in remote prehistory. This Golden Age civilization ended abruptly, but left behind a powerfully-advanced spiritual doctrine that was later inherited by the world’s first known civilizations, all children of the Golden Age.

The world’s first cultures inherited and practiced this spiritual doctrine, or “Universal Religion,” via the now-academically-taboo process called “hyperdiffusionism,” a pejorative 20th century term recently invented by the establishment media and academia:

“Hyperdiffusionism — the theory that all cultures originated from one [Golden Age] culture. Hyperdiffusionists deny that parallel evolution or independent invention took place to any great extent throughout history, they claim that…all cultures can be traced back to a single culture.”

— Wikipedia

By denouncing, and thus debilitating, any academic study even remotely related to the so-called “hyperdiffusionist” model of history—a model that was widely accepted by scholars of past centuries, who called the Golden Age civilization “Atlantis”—the elite have successfully kept the Universal Religion out of our reach. In doing so they have prevented us from accessing a deep, self-empowering body of human wisdom that has the potential to stir an awakening in humanity which would endanger their global hegemony.

The present article has presented a single example of hyperdiffusionism in the ancient past. It’s a revealing look at how the ancient culture of the Egyptians, a highly-advanced civilization that flourished along the Nile river in Africa, is mysteriously similar to a parallel culture on the other side of the globe, the ancient pre-Inca and Incas, who flourished in the Andean region of modern Peru.

What you have seen is evidence of the Universal Religion on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean, apparently handed down by the same Golden Age civilization. Most important to stress once again, the Universal Religion is not fiction; the Universal Religion relates profound and eternal spiritual truths explaining who we are, where we came from, where we’re going, and the meaning of life itself.

If one day this Universal Religion ever became widely known, people would become so empowered by the spirituality of their inner nature and by the eternity of their own being that they would quickly rise up and break the chains of their enslavement and dethrone the Invisible Government, that malicious and malevolent organization that for centuries has oppressed the masses and hidden the true reality of life on earth.

dsc_0129Richard Cassaro’s new book, The Missing Link, explores the meaning, transformations and propagation of the ancient world’s most important religious icon. His first book, Written in Stone, is a wide-ranging exploration of hitherto-unknown connections among Freemasons, medieval cathedral builders and the creators of important ancient monuments, in support of his theory that a spiritually advanced mother culture, lost to history, is behind many of the world’s architectural and artistic traditions.

Prior to the publication of Written in Stone, Cassaro enjoyed a successful career as a U.S. correspondent, professional journalist, and photo researcher for Rizzoli Publications, one of the world’s leading media organizations. Cassaro, who is a graduate of Pace University in New York City, has examined first-hand the ancient ruins and mystical traditions of Egypt, Mexico, Greece, Italy, Sicily, France, England, India, Peru and Spain; he has lectured on his theories to great acclaim in the United States, Egypt, Italy, Spain and Peru.
