Puberty has a way of changing a young man. In my case it distracted my fervent intentions of being a Catholic priest and led me to the dark side of Hedonistic pursuits which included a fascination for English pubs and performing in Gilbert and Sullivan Operettas. Of course, appearing in both venues were usually some very attractive females, so the whole ensemble became a potent force that redirected my ambitions towards something more useful.
But winds of change blew me onto a different course and in 1969 at age 23 I was America bound where I was to apply my practical engineering skills in the aerospace industry. Fueling my more public profile that is commonly known today, is decades of experience in aerospace manufacturing along with a personal path that included community involvement with several organizations serving on the board for the YMCA, Engineer’s Club, United Way and Danville Light Opera. It’s not like I brought Gilbert and Sullivan with me, but its seems that I can’t get away from it.
At this stage of my life, I feel truly blessed to have followed the path I have. To have met the wide variety of people I have met and to be able to reach out to thousands, even millions of people around the world. Life is about relationships and how we honor and protect them. Without relationships and the communities we join, we are alone in the world.
Christopher Dunn has an extensive background as a craftsman, starting his career as an indentured apprentice in his hometown of Manchester, England. Recruited by an aerospace manufacturing company, he immigrated to the United States in 1969. Over the past 49 years, Chris has worked at every level of high-tech manufacturing from machinist, toolmaker, programmer and operator of high-power industrial lasers, Project Engineer and Laser Operations Manager. For the past 16 year, he has served as Human Resource Director for a Midwest aerospace manufacturer.
Chris’s pyramid odyssey began in 1977 after he read Peter Tompkins’ book Secrets of the Great Pyramid. His immediate reaction after learning of the Great Pyramid’s precision and design characteristics was to consider that this edifice may have had an original purpose that differed from conventional opinion. After further research and study of source material on various theories, Chris concluded that it must have originally been built to provide a highly technical society with energy—in short, it was a very large machine. Discovering the purpose of this machine and documenting his case has taken the better part of twenty years of research and following the 1998 publication of Chris’s book, “The Giza Power Plant: Technologies of Ancient Egypt” which describes a holistic energy device that is harmonically coupled with the Earth and its inhabitants.
Chris has published over a dozen magazine articles, including the much quoted “Advanced Machining in Ancient Egypt” in Analog, August 1984, and has had his research referenced in over a dozen books on Egypt. In the United States he has appeared on PAX Television, the Travel Channel, Discovery Channel, The Learning Channel, Lifetime Television and most recently on the History Channel in the Ancient Alien episode “The Evidence”.
Chris’s second book, entitled “Lost Technologies of Ancient Egypt: Advanced Engineering in the Temples of the Pharaohs” was published by Inner Traditions/Bear & Company in June of 2010. In this work, Chris focuses on an important aspect of his research into the manufacturing capabilities of the ancient Egyptians and through his engineer’s eye and camera, reveals to his readers previously overlooked magisterial characteristics of Egyptian architectural and manufacturing wizardry.
