It all starts with a ring, inlaid with a seemingly insignificant black stone. Discovered on its own by the famous archaeologist Flinders Petrie, the stone had not been recognised for what it was, for up until the fall of Jerusalem in the 6th century BCE it had always been one of a pair. As a pair, these stones had been used for divination in Biblical times. Together they are known as the Urim and Thummim. Determined to find the highly valued, lost stone and bring the separated pair together once again, a powerful secret order sends a team of intrepid researchers back in time to the era of the Egyptian Pharaoh Akhenaten, only to discover a much greater enigma.

"The Eye of Ra is a brilliant new esoteric thriller that captivates the reader from the start. Intelligent, well-informed and absorbing, it propels you on a dangerous quest to Akhenaten's Egypt. If you are a fan of Dan Brown or Umberto Eco, then strap yourself in for a wild ride through ancient lands, intrigue and Egyptian magic. I highly recommend it."
Andrew Gough, presenter of historical documentaries and Editor-in-Chief of the Heretic Magazine
William Henry talks to Christopher Jones, who has translated one of the legendary ?hidden? books of our time, Otto Rahn's Crusade Against the Grail. Although Rahn wrote in 1933, it has taken 73 years for it to be published in English. Find out why, then listen to possible Sasquatch cries thanks to the intrepid Linda Moulton Howe!
V.: I have a question. Richard mentions the monument to Otto in the forest of the Hunsruck. Have anyone some pictures? Or the precise coordinates? I have not found any mentions about.
By the way - I don't like the inscription on it “Caution – these ways lead astray!”
It's not so simple)
Richard Stanley: Ave V. - You are right, mon frere. It is not so simple! The monument is a round stone bank in the courtyard of the seat of the Nerother Bund, a deeply conservative branch of the German youth movement known as the 'Wandervogel' whose headquarters can be found in Burg Waldeck in the forest of Hunsruck. As far as I know there are no photographs available on the web of this curious construction.
WHITE LIE – THE TRUTH IS OUT THERE
Belvianes, France, August 15, 2012 -- The truth is out there and it is much more unbelievable than fiction. Thirty years ago, ‘Raiders of the Lost Ark’ exploded at the box office. The adventures of Indiana Jones were pure fantasy but the man he was based on was very real. His name was Otto Rahn.
Indiana Jones is a pop-culture phenomenon - Spielberg saw to that - making the charismatic relic hunter, who was willing to risk life and limb to outsmart the Nazi’s and beat them to discovering the Ark of the Covenant and the Holy Grail, impossible to forget. Was Indy pure fiction? Not quite.
'White Lie’ is a story about forbidden history, hidden relics and the adventures of a group of people who get involved in something much bigger than themselves. It combines the mission of the Knights Templar - the warrior monks who legends claim discovered a sacred treasure beneath Solomon’s Temple - with Nazi relic hunter Otto Rahn.
There is one more Otto Rahn in the history. He was German too, he wrote books, but he was a bacteriologist.
But you can find such a book cover on the Amazon. Don't be confused)) It is not Otto Wilhelm Rahn's book.
Here the biography of Otto Rahn, the Microbiologist.

1. The New World Order
24 Jul 2011
(United States) The story of the New World Order can be traced to the end of World War II in the months before Germany fell. It was at this time that Hitler was informed of Project Wolfsschanze by General Hans Kammler and Lieutenant Colonel Otto Skorzeny of the Waffen-SS. The project named for Hitler’s mountain retreat had been kept a secret from Hitler because its purpose had been considered unthinkable by the Fuehrer. Project Wolfsschanze was a black budget style program to insure the survival of Third-Reich even if Germany were conquered.
“The nightmare was complete when I couldn’t even prove I was a pure blood Aryan, because when I researched my genealogy, I realised my mother and maternal grandfather were Jewish. And I must admit, I was a trouble-maker, I got into fights a lot when I saw SS soldiers misbehave and I wanted to make a career, to move further up the ladder. I was attracted by the power of my superiors, like many others, and in this process I gained a few political enemies. This is how my reputation attracted Hitler’s attention. He demanded my presence at the Berghof, Hitler’s base near Bergtesgaden on the German-Austrian border. I can still remember him, sitting behind his desk, wearing his reading glasses while reading my file. I had never seen him with reading glasses before. While Hitler was reading my file I waited for his reaction. My legs nearly gave way. Then he gave me my new orders, which said that I was drafted to be trained as a soldier, “to make a man out of me”, he said, so I took the journey to Buchenwald…”
Otto started to tremble again.
