Edgar Cayce / David Wilcock


Edgar Cayce is widely known as the most documented psychic of the 20th Century.

In this comparison it is quite easy to see the facial similarities between Cayce and Wilcock.

They also have remarkable astrological similarites, with the inner planets on both charts appearing in almost exactly the same positions — at billions-to-one odds against chance. David’s birth planets are the closest match to Cayce’s in a 157-year period after Cayce’s death — which helps him continue to work out the same karma.

Of course, they both also have a very well-documented record of accurate, insightful psychic readings.

Edgar’s alleged past-life identity as Egyptian priest Ra-Ta was said to have co-designed the Great Pyramid and Hall of Records with Thoth.

The Cayce Readings said “[Ra-Ta] the priest would return in 1998” and be in Virginia Beach, “surrounded by many of those” he knew before.

David’s readings began in November 1996, and they asked him to move to Virginia Beach in October 1997. Many key people began noticing his shocking resemblance to Cayce, since the A.R.E. is still headquartered there.

David’s readings confirmed that there was a past-life connection in November 1997 — and he visited the A.R.E., the Cayce organization, in 1998 to announce the connection. He was met with extreme interest at all other levels, but harsh criticism from the very top.

Since at least 1993, when he read Hoagland’s “Monuments of Mars,” David was “remembering” his Atlantean knowledge from the Ra-Ta period, including how the technology of the pyramids actually function and what they are used for — knowledge otherwise lost in the yet-undiscovered Hall of Records, which Ra-Ta designed and cataloged himself.

David’s first book exploring this science, CONVERGENCE, was published in 1998.


Morton Blumenthal / Chris R


Morton Blumenthal was heavily involved in Cayce’s work, using his readings to win in the stock market.

Blumenthal had a bitter falling-out with Cayce after he had funded the Cayce Hospital, but did not listen to the readings’ suggestion to sell all his stock thereafter.

The Great Crash of 1929 quickly wiped out Blumenthal’s asset base and destroyed the Cayce Hospital very quickly. Blumenthal also sold Cayce’s own home out from under him thereafter, betraying his trust and leaving him destitute.

Chris, pictured here, was David’s longest-lasting friend in college, and one of a very small number of people David has stayed in contact with from university.

Chris implicitly trusted David’s editing help to “sex up” his term papers, requesting it for each and every assignment, and always paying him for his work. Morton was Cayce’s single best customer, having paid for hundreds and hundreds of readings.

The one time David asked his readings about Chris, not knowing about his own Cayce connection, they strangely said “Plug in the early New York Stock Exchange.”

Chris finally came to live with David in Virginia Beach in 1998, right next door to the Cayce Hospital. Their first substantial fight, as friends, was on the very same day that David was about to revisit the Cayce Hospital for the first time in this life, and announce his possible reincarnation, as the readings had asked him to.

Morton obviously was plucking his eyebrows, partly obscuring the resemblance with Chris — but both men have a sagging upper-left eyelid and many other facial similarities. Clearly he and David had to come back and resolve their karma in this lifetime, finding peace and acceptance with each other.


Edwin Blumenthal / Jude Goldman


Edwin Blumenthal also had many Cayce readings and was a close friend of Cayce’s prior to the big falling-out.

The Cayce Readings said that Edwin had been Jesus’ brother Jude in a past life, which makes this connection all the more curious.

They also said that Edwin could be a conscious channeler and do even better readings than Cayce.

David’s friend Jude, pictured here, was his longest-standing friend in high school, and the only friend from that time who David is still in contact with.

Jude now has a professional photography career specializing in portraits — just like Cayce did.

He and David made powerful music together while teenagers, and had many profound intuitive experiences together. One time David was sleeping on Jude’s floor and had a vision of a frightening man chasing him. David had a gun and could shoot the man, but chose not to. Jude, while asleep, said, “Shoot him… just shoot him… two bullets.”

Jude was meditating directly next to David when David’s first psychic reading came through, in the form of automatic writing. Jude also tried to get a message at the same time but did not meet with success. David’s message had a host of startling features as we describe in “Wanderer Awakening”.

Their friendship has stood the test of multi-incarnational time. Edwin appears to have had such respect for Cayce that he reincarnated as his best friend, and actually ended up taking on the same lifelong creative and professional interests as Cayce had done — photography and creative mysticism.


Leslie “Squire” Cayce / Don Wilcock

Edgar Cayce’s father wore a mustache his whole life and was called “The Squire” by everyone. He and Edgar did not have an easy relationship with each other.

Don’s sneer here was indended for comedic effect — it was taken just after he and David met Metallica backstage. It happens to be the closest-matching photo we have.

David Wilcock’s father Don has a nearly identical mustache, and would only shop at “Squire Shop” for men’s dress clothing for many, many years.

David met many of the popular 80s bands with his father, who works as a professional music journalist. Apparently the karmic connection was strong enough that the same roles were chosen again for the next incarnation.

The challenge, again, seems to be to learn to get along with each other — which they are now doing much better than before!


Dr. Wesley Ketchum / Mike Wilcock

Dr. Wesley Ketchum worked with Cayce’s father to use the readings to bet and win on horse races for desperately needed financing. Cayce was told that he was doing medical readings, as he did not want to use the readings for financial gain even if his family was starving.

When Cayce found out the truth, he ended the whole partnership and never spoke to Ketchum again. The Squire and Edgar remained a family, but there was much tension over this falling-out that had developed.

David’s brother Michael has very curious facial similarities to Ketchum, including nearly identical glasses. David and Michael both played the drums while growing up, which only furthered their ongoing sibling rivalry and competition.

Don Wilcock would take David and Michael to Baum’s News Room every Sunday for comic books and candy, through their entire childhood. The same Italian guys were in the newsroom every Sunday, smoking cigars and avidly watching the horse races as if they had money involved.

The moral of the story seems to be that if you really end things badly with a person in your life, you’ll get the chance to try all over again later on — until you learn to love and respect each other and see past the issues that had once driven you apart.


Gertrude Cayce / Angelica H

Edgar Cayce had a difficult marriage with his wife, Gertrude — to the point that he left for four years wildcatting for oil with his readings, and never sent even a dime home, while Gertrude continued to care for their two young children. This tension may also have factored in to why Gertrude almost died of tuberculosis.

We now know, from Sidney Kirkpatrick’s biographical research of Cayce’s life, that Cayce was unfaithful to his wife during these four years as well — but eventually returned.

Gertrude was told that she had been the legendary Egyptian female Isris while Cayce was incarnated as Ra-Ta. “Isris” was later changed to “Isis” and the real person was mythologized into a goddess. Ra-Ta also became mythologized into the Egyptian god Ra, according to the Cayce Readings.

Ra-Ta was immediately stricken with Isris’ beauty when he first met her. Ra-Ta’s detractors were able to frame and betray him by convincing Isris to seduce him, and thereby break his publicly-avowed policy of monogamy. Isris married Ra-Ta and stayed with him and his supporters when he was sent into exile.

David felt an incredible, passionate desire for Angelica the first time he saw her, and went way out of his way to get to know her well. Angelica became David’s closest female friend in college and they are still in regular contact.

In 1995, David rode out to Boulder by train to try to gain admittance to Naropa Institute, and was turned down. On the way back he spoke with two very excited men who were coming from California to join Baba Muktananda’s ashram in South Fallsburg, NY.

When David first visited Angelica’s apartment, he could hardly believe his eyes. She had the exact same table from India, a maroon-colored carved table with each leg in the shape of an elephant head, that David had admired the night he did the automatic writing with Jude.

Right after seeing this synchronicity, David went into the story about the two men on the train… and Angelica breathlessly informed him that she had lived out most of her life at this exact same ashram!

In 1997, David helped get Angelica a job in his neighboring department, Front Desk, at Mohonk Moutnain House.

Without yet knowing of his possible past as Cayce, he called Angelica “Isis” as they walked the majestic grounds together, because he felt like she was a “goddess.” Angelica became very angry with David when he used his ESP to remote-influence her to come and have dinner with him. This argument was still in force when David was guided to move to Virginia Beach.

Though they never dated, they have both been there for each other as they navigate the respective dramas encountered in other relationships. They have learned how to get past their strong tendency to argue and have remained friends for the last 12 years.

Angelica is also the only friend of David’s that he and his father brought backstage at a concert, and Don was fond of her — as Cayce’s father was fond of Gertrude.

David Kahn / Eric

Cayce’s “best friend” was arguably David Kahn. There is a truly remarkable facial similarity between Kahn and David’s “other best friend” Eric, as good as any others we have presented here. They also have numerous similarities in character, mood, temperment, practical thinking and financial stability.

Eric does not want his identity to be made public at this time due to his professional involvements and how it might change the way he is seen by his colleagues.

Kahn was present for many, many Cayce readings, and actually pioneered the idea for a wooden cabinet-mounted radio on the suggestion of Cayce’s readings. These cabinet radios became hugely popular, and the design also saw its way into many early television sets. Kahn was the original inventor.

Eric lived with David for over a year after college graduation. They encouraged each other to stay on their strict vegan diets that were later encouraged by the readings. Eric’s stabilizing, grounding personality undoubtedly helped David establish a spoken connection with his own Higher Self.

Eric received several astonishing prophecies from David’s readings in the early days, including a statement that he “would be happy to know” that his “student loans for New Paltz” had come in. Eric had already graduated from New Paltz, so this seemed to make no sense.

Over a month later, when Eric and David were in dire financial straits, New Paltz remodeled the Bursar’s office and found an uncashed 900-dollar Stafford Loan check for Eric behind a file cabinet. The check was still good — and their financial disaster was neatly averted. They were astonished to see this prophecy come true.

David Kahn and Morton Blumenthal were enemies in Edgar’s lifetime. Eric did not like Chris R and they almost never spoke to each other, despite both of them being David’s friends and attending the same university. So perhaps there is still some work to do.



There may yet be other past-life connections between David’s circle of friends and Cayce’s friends that we have not discovered; the above cases are simply the ones that we have been able to discover so far, where comparison photos are available for confirmation and cleared by the people involved.

It is highly interesting that Jude is David’s only remaining friend from high school, and with two exceptions, Eric and Chris R are David’s only remaining friends from university. David’s only other friend from university that he has remained in contact with is Artie Thomas, and we have strong reason to suspect that he was also part of Cayce’s entourage — though we have not yet figured out who he might have been.

Perhaps there are no documented photographs of this person in the book “Edgar Cayce’s Photographic Legacy,” where these other portraits were found.

Skeptical reactions of disbelief are understandable. “Oh, they all look a LITTLE alike, but come on!” Reincarnation can be a difficult concept to grasp, particularly when it occurs in “soul groups” like this. The fact of the matter is that some of David’s core family members, (not pictured at this time) and some of David’s closest and longest friends are very similar to equally central figures in Cayce’s lifetime.

Cayce’s own readings also predicted that this would happen, as we indicated in “The Reincarnation of Edgar Cayce?”. The faces are not 100-percent identical, but these discrepancies are apparently caused by the combination of the true face of the Higher Self, and its energetic organizing effect upon the DNA molecule, with the hereditary facial characteristics inherited from either of the parents. Jude has a narrower mouth than Edwin. David’s nose and earlobes are differently shaped than Edgar’s.

It is also true that Cayce and David looked far LESS alike in their younger years. David was quite overweight between ages 10 and 16, and photos of Cayce from that same time period look scrawny and very different than David does now. It seems that the full energetic effects of the Higher Self upon facial structure are not completely visible until full sexual maturity is reached in the late teens / early 20s.

David’s latest scientific research on the energetic effects with the DNA molecule, as he describes in his co-authored book The Reincarnation of Edgar Cayce?, gives a scientific basis for the idea of a “soul” that is apart from the physical body, continues to reincarnate and progressively learn lessons, and has a direct energetic effect upon the structure of the DNA molecule.

Russian scientist Dr. Peter Gariaev discovered that DNA absorbs light photons in its surrounding area, and causes the photons to spiral through the molecule itself. This spiraling effect will continue in the same spot for up to 30 days after the DNA is physically removed from that spot — and this effect is called the “DNA Phantom.”

Gariaev also shined a gentle laser beam through a developing salamander embryo and redirected it into a developing frog embryo. This caused the frog embryo’s DNA to completely re-code itself with the instructions to build a healthy adult salamander ( ! ), even though the two embryos were in hermetically sealed containers and only the light was allowed to pass through.

In the same way, it appears that your “True” form begins affecting how your physical body will look from the moment of conception, as your soul energies begin weaving their way in to the DNA, just like how the salamander’s “energy” codes could be transmitted, via laser light, to a frog embryo and cause mutation.

As you get older, more and more of this energetic DNA-blending takes place, and your face more closely resembles that of your Higher Self. In the case of Garaiev’s research, the salamanders were able to breed with other salamanders, live healthy lives and show no signs of ever having originated from frogs.

This also seems to be the primary mechanism responsible for why evolution occurs in sudden, evenly-spaced spurts in our fossil record — neat cycles of 65 million years and 26 million years have both been discovered and proven to exist.

David’s research suggests that these cycles are the result of our Solar System passing through evenly-spaced energetic zones in the Galaxy, which at times will spontaneously induce evolution on any planet supporting life, within only one or two generations.

It appears that we are again experiencing such an effect now, having remarkable effects upon the Earth’s climate as well as that of the Sun and all other planets, and causing many social changes to occur on Earth — the creation of a “Dark Night of the Soul” for humanity where our group negativity is being mirrored back to us on a global, governmental level so that it can be identified, cleansed and healed — both collectively and individually as well.

We believe that we are living in the most remarkably POSITIVE time on Earth we have ever seen. The darkest hour truly is before the dawn. Many great teachers have unwittingly reincarnated at this time, and as they evolve, they will remember more and more of their True Purpose and take the necessary steps to fulfill it.

You may very well be one of them, if you find that all of this is making sense to you — as if you already knew it and are only remembering something you already knew from long ago.

We wish you well on your journey through the many different articles, books and audio files you will find on this website. Enjoy yourself — and live your life in peace and happiness!
