Tuesday, June 14, 2011, 6:30 PM, Free MUFON Lecture Event:  Tredyffrin Public Library Slide Lecture Presentation by Adjunct Assistant Professor Scott A. Ogburn, M.Arch., Tuesday, June  14th,  6:30 pm. Lecture Title:  "Secrets of the Great Pyramid & Sphinx and December 21st, 2012 Mayan Prophecies".  These 2012 Mayan prophecies were revealed to Professor Ogburn by a Mayan shaman on a trip to the northern Yucatan of Mexico in January 2011.  Scott A. Ogburn, is an Adjunct Assistant Professor at both the Department of Landscape Architecture and Horticulture at Temple University and the School of Architecture at Philadelphia University.  The primary slide lecture (with music) covers various aspects of the secrets and mysteries of the esoteric Great Pyramid and the Sphinx relating to the hypothesis that the Great Pyramid and Sphinx were built by a very ancient civilization, perhaps older than 10,000 BC.  The advanced sacred architecture, astronomy, mathematics and "etheric energy" of the Great Pyramid will be covered in the lecture, as well as possible construction techniques and the use of the Great Pyramid and Sphinx as an ancient temple for initiation and religious ceremonies and not a mere tomb for the dynastic pharoh, Cheops.  The lecture on the Great Pyramid and Sphinx is inspired by a six week research field trip Professor Ogburn made to Egypt in December 1976 and January 1977, visiting the Great Pyramid and Sphinx and visiting other Egyptian Temples, most notably the Temple at Karnak. There will be a shorter secondary slide lecture of Mayan Sacred Architecture, just the pyramids and astronomical observatories at Chichen Itza, Tulum, Coba, Palenque, Tikal, Dzbilichaltun, Uxmal, and Mayapan.  There will be a brief discussion of principles of Mayan astronomy and mathematics and how this relates to their Sacred Architecture and their prophecies.  The important mythology of the Maya civilization will also be connected to their Sacred Architecture, hieroglyphics, sculpture and art.   A discussion and relevance of the December 21st, Mayan 2012 prophecies will also take place.  Both lectures are followed by a question and discussion period from the audience.  The Mayan lecture is inspired by  a January 2009 and January 2011 research field trip Professor Ogburn made to the Yucatan of Mexico, visiting a number of Mayan temples and pyramids. Professor Ogburn’s research interests include Archaeoastronomy, the influence of Astronomy and Sacred Geometry on Sacred Architecture, Phenomenology, Sustainable Architecture and the Design of Sustainable Communities, Water in Architecture, Lighting in Architecture, and Megalithic Sacred Stone Circles.   Professor Ogburn, with a Master of Architecture degree from Virginia Tech, has a private architectural design practice that includes sacred architecture design, residential design, landscape architecture design, large outdoor sculptures and sacred stone circle design.  Professor Ogburn's architectural practice office phone number is:  267 923-8531.  E-mail:

Film: “What On Earth? Inside the Crop Circle Mystery”

Take a ride with filmmaker Suzanne Taylor as she engages a fascinating subculture of artists, educators, geometers, philosophers, and farmers, enthralled by the mystery of crop circles. For twenty years, Taylor has been part of a lively international community that gathers in England every summer to study and document circle developments. What On Earth? Inside the Crop Circle Mystery, winner of the Best Feature Documentary Award from the UFO Film Congress, is filled with stunning imagery of the circles. It deals with how our scientific materialistic worldview hampers serious investigation of one of the greatest mysteries of our time, and the many indications that the phenomenon is not a human perpetration. It goes on to speculate about what would happen if it were ascertained that the circles do indeed come from other intelligence -- how that would help us think as a planet, which would give us our best chance to solve the pressing global problems that challenge us now.


Taylor, the Executive Producer of the documentary, CROP CIRCLES: Quest for Truth, was the recipient of the Audience Award in 2003 for Excellence in Paranormal Filmmaking from the UFO Congress Film Festival, and is a crop circle authority for the History Channel series, Ancient Aliens.She is the founder of “Mighty Companions”, a non-profit dedicated to consciousness expansion. Her Los Angeles home is a gathering place for forward-thinking activists. Also a fine arts painter and accomplished chef, Taylor is the author of The Anybody Can Make It, Everybody Will Love It Cookbook. She writes a blog, Making Sense of These Times, where posts about progressive ideas include considerations of how consciousness might evolve:

Presentation: Craig Bennett
In the summer of 1984, Craig Bennett, along with two other Americans and a Brazilian, ventured into the dry tropical wilderness of Bahia in search of the ruins of a lost city sought by Col Percival H. Fawcett in the early decades of the last century. (See David Grann’s 2009 book, The Lost City of Z, pub. by Doubleday.) Particularly intriguing was that inscriptions copied from some of the buildings by Portuguese adventurers in 1753 suggested that the city was built by people from the Mediterranean around two thousand years ago. Although the group was unsuccessful in reaching its target, their research findings, the archaeological remains they saw and photographed, and the unexpected dangers they encountered make a fascinating story.
