Why do the Karnak (Egypt) and Teotihuacan (Mexico) sites share so many similarities?
Answer from the V.M. Samael Aun Weor.
Authentic initiation was received in the great mystery temples of the Serpentine Civilizations. Only Serpentine Civilizations are true civilizations.
It is necessary that the vanguard of human civilization, made up of our beloved brothers, Theosophists, Rosicrucian, Hermetic Yogis, Spiritualists etc., etc. abandon their old prejudices and fears and unite to create from amongst them all a new Serpentine Civilization. It is urgent to know that the present day barbarity wrongly called civilization is approaching its final catastrophe. The world struggles in frightening chaos and if we really want to save it we all need to unite to create a Serpentine Civilization; the Civilization of Aquarius. We need to make a supreme and desperate effort to save the world because right now, all is lost.
… The authentic Aztec and Mayan cultures, the Egyptian and Chaldean etc, are Serpentine Cultures that cannot be understood without Sexual Magic and Kundalini.
Every archaic culture is Serpentine. Every authentic and true civilization is Serpentine. A civilization without the Wisdom of the Serpent is not a real civilization.

Answer from the Magazine "The Wisdom of the Being".
The arrangement of the Karnak temples symbolizes the tree of life and is similar to the Aztec design in Teotihuacán, since both cultures are "serpentine" and in both the mysteries of fire were taught.
In Teotihuacán there is the temple of Quetzalcóatl, the feathered serpent that symbolizes the sacred fire. Under this temple there are two wells (“the waters of life”).
In Egypt there is the temple of Mut, the sacred fire of the divine mother. This temple is bordered by a lake that contains "the waters of life".
The road of the dead in Teotihuacán symbolizes the path of the sacred fire to the "temple of the heart" and the "temple of the mind".
In Egypt the road is marked by "the avenue of the sphinxes", which symbolize the vertebrae of the column.
In Teotihuacán the heart is symbolized by the pyramid of the Sun.
In Egypt, by the temple of Amon-Ra, the Sun God.
In Teotihuacán the head is symbolized by the temple of the Moon to indicate mechanicalness, customs, habits.
In Egypt, by the temple of Montu, the god of war, to symbolize "the battle of antitheses" that exists in the mind.
