When I read the opening paragraph, I knew I had to read the entire article. It linked Egypt to Arizona. It possibly confirmed the statement I had made a few days earlier during a conversation.
It was based on a 1909 article printed in the Arizona Gazette. The one hundred year old article documented the research of G.E. Kincaid. It was full of assumptions and guesses about how things in Egypt could resemble things in Arizona. It discouraged other people from exploring the find. It talked about the danger of the trip and the possibility of federal charges for trespassing.
Of course, this left doubt as to whether the story was true since the researcher didn’t want the general public verifying his work. This created doubt as to whether this was a sign I should follow.
I thought about what I know about following signs.
I believe everything that comes into my life is a sign with information for me. If I receive a message that is especially outrageous, I consider the likelihood of receiving the sign. In this case, a reader who did not know of my search for a link between Arizona and Egypt and who had only previously sent me a link to a story one time in five months, sent me a link to a story.
Why would this reader take the time to email me the link to this story?
How did this reader come across this story?
Why did this reader think of me?
I could figure the odds of this happening but you get the idea. The likelihood of this happening by chance was extraordinary.
I determined this was part of my journey. I determined this story had truth it in for me, especially since the subject matter was something I was currently pondering.
Therefore, when it showed up in my life, I assumed it was designed specifically for my benefit.
The article described a cave entered from a ledge about two thousand feet above the riverbed of the Grand Canyon. The cave had hundreds of rooms including a large central room hundreds of feet long. The researchers claimed 50,000 people could have resided there.
The large room had tools and equipment used for smelting. There was evidence that whoever lived there knew how to harden metal and smelt ore. There was quite a bit of slag left behind.
The room contained other mysteries including a gray, unidentified metal that resembled platinum.
The more I read the article, the more I thought of the descriptions of Petrie’s finds at Mount Horeb.
It was a large workshop, equipped with some kind of unexplained method of smelting ore. It left residue behind.
…maybe the residue was what was being produced. Maybe the smelting project in Arizona was to turn the platinum-type metal into powder just as the smelting work in Sinai turned gold into powder.
Maybe the primary purpose of both facilities was to produce a monoatomic product as a staple for their society’s livelihood.
I will explore that idea tomorrow.
Do you feel like you are missing pieces of information in this story? Maybe this will help…
I’m currently writing a series about my research into the value of gold. In addition, this series explains the signs I found along the way that led me on my research.
