“Supreme among the wonders of antiquity, unrivaled by the achievements of later architects and builders, the Great Pyramid of Giza bears mute witness to an unknown civilization which, having completed its predestined span, passed into oblivion. Eloquent in its silence, inspiring in its majesty, divine in its simplicity, the Great Pyramid is indeed a sermon in stone. Its magnitude overwhelms the puny sensibilities of man. Among the shifting sands of time it stands a fitting emblem of eternity itself. Who were the illumined mathematicians who planned its parts and dimensions, the master craftsmen who supervised its construction, the skilled artisans who trued its blocks of stone?
“The earliest and best known account of the building of the Great Pyramid is that given by the highly revered but somewhat imaginative historian, Herodotus. …

This is but one of several instances in his writings which would lead the thoughtful reader to suspect that Herodotus was an initiate of the Sacred Schools and consequently obligated to preserve inviolate the secrets of the ancient orders.” ~Manly P.

I don’t think it is accurate to say that the advanced civilization that built the Great Pyramid “passed into oblivion”. Those people may be gone, but much of what they knew was passed on to other civilizations including ancient Greece. So in my opinion, you can’t say they passed into oblivion when a lot of their knowledge, both physical and spiritual, was passed on to other civilizations.
