[H.P.B. ON THE CHEOPS PYRAMID]
[In 1882, a work by C. Staniland Wake entitled The Origin and Significance of the Great Pyramid was published in London by Reeves and Turner. In H.P.B.’s copy of this work, now in the Adyar Archives, there is a pencil note in her handwriting, on page 85, with reference to Wake’s statement that the Cheops Pyramid “was erected during the reign of Cheops” and that this “is almost universally admitted.” H.P.B. says:
Cheops never built it. It was built ages before him and he only desecrated it by giving it another use. In his day no more initiations took place in it and he consecrated it to Tet, or Seth-Typhon.
