Guldenhagen - Land of the Pharaohs

The Dream

He claimed it was an inner voice that told him to climb out of the trench and jump into a large crater formed by a previously exploded shell. He felt the blast behind him and when he returned to the trench all his colleagues were dead. Franz Jetzinger later claimed there were only two books he had actually read with enthusiasm: "A child´s guide to Nordic mythology", and "A history of German Archaeology".

The Sphinx

The former home to a half brother of the king and later a lady named Charlotte. Art and Architecture had encaptured the minds of visitors for hundreds of years. Gold Medal Awards had also been given to outstanding artists and twice to some. The main entrance was Number 1 and in the first courtyard and to the left was a doorway marked 1C and to the right 1E. The wall of portway 1C carried marble plates of recognised individuals linked to the building and her activities with their handwritten signatures carved into the stone.

The Pyramid

Below and behind there were six million skeletons. In front there was a king on a horse. To the right was an entrance with the number 12 and to the left was an entrance with the number 11. The ingestion of Peyote roots created a dream like landscape of a mysterious museum. Further to the left was a garden and judgement and further to the right was a dragon below a rotunda. Three lines of thought met in that garden and in a golden room with paintings. The door behind was both 5 and 6 and under the grand dome a baby with a relection of swans.

The Labyrinth

Breadcrumbs on the steps led into the darkness of a cold Norwegian winter. It was only possible to go forward with choices and decisions that could shorten or lengthen the journey ahead. There were different forms of artistic symbolism concealed within the walls to mark pathways into other worlds. Numbers: 15, 17, 24, 37, 39, 42, 53, 59, 62, 76 all flashed by until reaching a redoubt, creating a simple impression worthy of deeper study. Interpreting the meaning was the key to moving forward. False information had been placed by persons involved in trickery and their own selfish reasons for obstructing the journey. Was it because they were cowards and sought their own agenda? The answer could only be found at the end of the darkness.

Valley of the King´s

The valley was far away in a neutral land where everything seemed to meet by a glacial river. Different lines of thought, events and history all representing parallel journeys. A smiling old lady dressed in white, as graceful as a swan, sat drinking a cold glass of white wine next to an Inn keeper at a Neoclassical building, a tribute to Hercules. Her husband was absent but her clan of models and muscle complimented the warm summers evening whilst whispers about "Master and Servant" raced through the warm summers air.

"ELECTRA" by Stephan Sinding - View from roof of Kongens Nytorv 28 looking towards Frederiks Kirke (church). It is possible to walk from Kongens Nytorv 28 to Frederiks Kirke. The most enlightening route is to walk "anti-clockwise" around Kongens Nytorv and then down Bredgade (Norway st) until you reach the church

Kongens Nytorv 28 is half of a building built by C.F Tietgen. The building was once used by "Private Bank" linked to C.F Tietgen and his wife Laura Charlotte Tietgen who also owned shares in Københavns Telefon Aktieselskab (TDC). Number 28 was built following the demolition of a shop called "Andersen" during the 1890´s and perhaps parallel in time to the building of the Bellevue Strand Pavillion on the Gentofte / Lyngby-Taarbaek kommune boundary line. Years ago it was believed an old lady rented one of the huge apartments in the building on a higher floor and to top up her income she found it necessary to act as a landlady and rent out a number of rooms to students. It is thought the students have not been intimidated or provoked by the Secret Police nor any other mysterious sect.

Irrespective of the story from within the walls of the famous "Tietgen" building on Kongens Nytorv and in years gone by it was quite possible to sit beneath the Elm trees surrounding the statue of King Christian V in the middle of the square and watch students dance around the statue celebrating the end of their exams knowing that high above Kongens Nytorv a lady frozen in time and space was watching their celebration. For some students her name was not Electra, she was simply known as "Stephanie".

Below are two poems allegedly written by Albrecht Haushofer (1945). The poems are called "The Father" and "Guilt".

"GUILT"

I lightly carry what the judge calls my guilt
Guilt in planning and caring
I would feel guilty had I not from inner duty
Planned for the peoples future
But I am guilty other than you think:
I should have sooner seen my duty
I should have sharper condemned evil
I have too long delayed my judgement
I now accuse myself
I have long betrayed my conscience
I have lied to myself and to others.
I soon foresaw the evils frightful path
I have warned
But my warnings were too feeble
I know wherin lies the guilt.
"THE FATHER"
He once had it in his power
To cast the demon back in to the dark
My father broke the seal
But failed to see the evil
He let the demon escape in to the world.
