The Portal in the Pyramid by Martin Lundqvist

A mystical crystal takes Martin through a portal to another dimension

The portal in the pyramid

Martin was on holiday in Cairo, Egypt, where he checked in to a cheap and dingy 3-star hotel room. He walked around in the city looking inspirations for his new Sci-Fi book when he stumbled across an Egyptian old market/bazaar. He bought a shimmering and glowing blue crystal, which turned out to be an ancient gem that led to a portal to another dimension.

A few days later he woke up in the hospital, supposedly after experiencing a rare form of food poisoning that caused vivid hallucinations. But the question remains, what really happened in the pyramid?

Join Martin in this exciting and exhilarating short-story which takes place in present time, almost a millennium before the events described in The Divine Dissimulation and The Divine Sedition which takes place in the 28th and 29th century.

A Quick Tour of the Divine Palace.

Brahma looked at me and spoke, “Our time is short but let me show you around”. I got up on my feet, and to my great relief, I could walk, albeit with a bit of a limp, as you would, one month after breaking your foot. I followed Brahma to a beautiful pond, located next to a blooming Lotus Tree. In the pond, I could see a lot of things happening on Earth.

“Master Brahma, if everything on Earth that is still unknown is science and not magic, how can you see all these things from Earth?” I asked.

“When we first came across Earth on our travel across the Milky Way eons ago, we dropped millions of nanotechnology drones so we could see everything on the planet. These drones were powered with advanced fission batteries that have almost unlimited battery time. Thus, some of these drones are still sending images to us.” Brahma replied.

“Wow!”, I replied.

“Yes, when we Zetans told your ancestors that we were all-seeing, we were not lying, just explaining to your level of intelligence”, Brahma said.

 “But are you really gods, and did you create mankind?” I asked curiously.

“No. We didn’t create mankind, but we made you what you are. When we came across Homo-Sapiens 70,000 years ago, your species was just lower-tiered animals, close to extinction. My Zetan ancestors altered your genome, and raised your intelligence, making you what you have become since then.” Brahma replied.

“So then, because your Zetan species is much more advanced compared to our human species, you become Gods to us?” I asked. 

“Yes. The only real god, The True Maker, works on a cosmological scale. For such an omnipotent being, the daily prayers and actions of individuals become insignificant.” Brahma replied.
