The path to Paradise...

is full of obstacles.

Amazing discovery made by the

Stanford Research Institute

in the Plain of Giza.

The big pyramid and the Sphynx are

connected by a secret passage.

"Upuaut Vll" the micro-robot created by

the German engineer Rudolf Gantenbrink

has discovered some subterranean caves

connecting these two huge structures.

Hieroglyphic fragments suggest

that the subterranean structures

were created by the "Shemsu Hor":

The followers of a cult devoted

to the legendary Horus.

We are about to discover

the mythical "Way of Horus".

Here are the images,

shown for the first time.

The ancient Egyptians were already using

an instrument like this one

to orient themselves in the desert

by following the stars.

It was rediscovered thanks to

an old scroll...

is part of the whole picture...

Everything is connected

by an invisible thread...

You just need to be able

to see the connections.

We'll find right here the relics

of the Egyptian ships coasting Italy.

Something unexpected!

Please, tell Professor Al Kamar

I need to go.

Don't worry, Doctor. I'll tell him.

Welcome to the eternal life.

The borders of existence

will be definitely overcome.

Your precious signature, please.


Death and Nature will be astounded,

when every creature will revive

to answer the Judgement.

The soul longing for eternity,

needs to overcome the invincible

triumph of death

in order to be saved.

The borders of existence

will be definitely overcome.

Go beyond the threshold of hope.

Experience it!

Resurrection Day is coming,

when the half-living of the Moratorium

will live again.

We are waiting for you.

Resurrection Day is coming.
