The Great Pyramid

“…said by many to be the oldest building on the surface of the earth, is the great symbol of composite man. In other words it stands for man as a unit.”-The Initiates of the Flame Manly P. Hall Pg 73

“…there is only one real pyramid in all the world. Even the others in Egypt are but copies of the Great Pyramid, and were used as tombs for the Pharaohs, but nobody was ever found in Cheops, nor were there ever any signs that it had been so used.”-The Initiates of the Flame Manly P. Hall
“All pyramids are symbols of fire,…”-Melchizedek & the Mystery of Fire by Manly P. Hall pg. 17

“Here we see the pyramid laid out so that the four triangles and the square are clearly seen. This represents man once again, and the ancient Pyramid is man offering his higher being upon the altar of the Great Fire Spirit.”-The Initiates of the Flame Manly P. Hall Pg 76

“The four-sided base of the pyramid represents the four elements of which man’s bodies are composed. These are hydrogen, nitrogen, oxygen and carbon, or earth, water, fire, and air. These are called the base of all things, and upon this base the four bodies of man are raised, each from its own element. Thus the physical body is raised from the earth. The vital body is raised from the water, the emotional body from the fire, and the mental body from the air. There are twelve lines used in the drawing of the four triangles, which stand for the twelvefold constitution of man when it is complete: the threefold body, the threefold mind, the threefold soul, and the threefold spirit. It also gives us the twelve signs of the zodiac, divided into their respective groups.”-The Initiates of the Flame Manly P. Hall pg. 75, 77

“It is said that in ancient times the Sphinx was the gateway of the pyramid, and that there was an underground passage which led from the Sphinx to Cheapo.

This would make the symbolism even more perfect, for the gateway to the spirit is through the bodies according to the ancients.” -The Initiates of the Flame Manly P. Hall Pg 79, 80

“There are three great rooms in the pyramid which are of great interest to the student. The highest is the King’s Chamber, then below that is the Queen’s Chamber, and down below the surface of the earth is the Pit. Here we again find the great correlation between the pyramid and man. The three rooms are the three great divisions in man which are the seats of the threefold spirit.” -The Initiates of the Flame Manly P. Hall pg. 80

“The lower room is the generative system under the control of Jehovah. The center room or Queen’s Chamber is the heart, under the control of the Christ; and the upper room or the King’s Chamber in the brain, which is under the control of the Father. In this upper room is the coffer made of stone, the meaning of which has never been explained, but which the student recognizes as the third ventrical in the brain.

It is quite certain also that this coffer was used as a tomb during initiation, when as is the case in the Masonic initiations of today, (which are the remnants of the ancient mysteries) the candidate was buried in the earth and resurrected, a symbol of the death of the lower man and the liberation of the higher.” -The Initiates of the Flame Manly P. Hall pg. 80

Cap/Corner Stone

“There is probably no point that is as important in connection with the pyramid as that of the corner stone. On the very top of the great pyramid is a comparatively flat place about thirty feet square. In other words the TRUE STONE WHICH IS THE HEAD OF ALL THE CORNERS IS MISSING. If we look at the reverse side ofthe United States seal, we find again the pyramid from which the top is separated.

The value of the stone is better understood when you understand that it completes all of the triangles atonce, and without it none of them are complete.” -The Initiates of the Flame Manly P. Hall pg 81

This stone is the spirit in man, which fell from its high position, and has been lost beneath the rubbish of the lower man. This is the true cap stone that is now hidden in the pit of man’s temple, and which he must exhume and place again as the true crown of his spiritual pyramid.” -The Initiates of the Flame Manly P. Hall pg. 81,83

“And Lucifer, the one rejected by man as the devil, is the one who must through the planet Mars send man the dynamic energy which man himself must transmute from the fire of passion to the flame of spirit. He then must take the tools of the craft and cut and polish his own being into the cap stone of the Universal Temple.”-The Initiates of the Flame Manly P. Hall Pg. 83

“…we know that for thousands of years since the time it was built by the Atlanteans it has been the greatest temple of Initiation in the world.
It seems also that its work is not yet done, for mutely it is teaching those who will see the mysteries of creation.” -The Initiates of the Flame Manly P. Hall pg. 80,81
“America is not complete, and will not be complete, cannot be complete, until Mexico is again part of America as she was in the long ago, and when Mexico is once again a part of the United States, then will the cap‐stone have been set on the Pyramid…

….May it not be long until the Holy Pyramid shall be completed and may it be completed without the shedding of blood.Lovingly given, R. Swinburne Clymer. ‘Beverly Hall,’ Quakertown, Pennsylvania, July 6th, 1916.”-Fundamental Laws: A Report of the 68th Convocation of the Rose Cross Order: pg. 24
