The Giza Oracle
The Great Pyramid at Giza is the largest, most precisely constructed, and aligned building on Earth and was not built by humans. The precise engineering and perfection of design cannot be rivaled even by modern technology and we could not duplicate it today.
Throughout the world there are thousands of structures and artifacts that are as mysterious as they are ageless. They range from tiny statues to giant megaliths. Found in many cultures connected by neither common language nor history they defy architectural logic and engineering reality. The world is covered in matrix of evidence that represent the world’s greatest enigma, its past. For the most part, veiled in a shroud of confusion and misinformation, these technological wonders are reduced to the status of elementary school reports and staged tour agendas. In the majority of cases the information about the origin of these megaliths, monoliths, and artifacts generally available is gleaned from crude carvings, primitive paintings, and scraps of ancient writings at best and local folklore at worst. And even this sketchy and questionable evidence is further clouded by the ever-present dominance of theoretical zeal. Archeologists and anthropologists are the high masters of hypothesis, speculation, and assumption. They take tiny bits of information and attempt to write entire histories using nothing more than imagination and grant money yet they are almost never questioned. Theoretical license is the rule rather than the exception while logic, practicality, and reality are often only obstructions to be ridiculed and ignored. All this speculation once published undergoes a miraculous metamorphosis, it becomes fact. It is a truth that most scientific theory is taught and accepted as absolute truth no matter how many times it is discredited or without regard to how illogical, impractical, or outrageous those tentative assumptions may be. The result is a wall of conjecture masquerading as actuality, preventing any serious research into the true origins and implications of the world’s anomalies. If there is any implication that their grand theories are not cast in stone they cannot get the grants, sell the books, produce the documentaries, or most essential to their careers, get the recognition their massive egos crave. In short, they can’t afford to be wrong, no matter how wrong they are. Publish or perish is not some catchy phrase, it is the reality. The simple axiom ” question authority ” is the key to successful research into the origins of the world’s wonders. Logic and reality should be the guides and if allied with the ability to think independently and trust in one’s own feelings research will produce understanding. It is almost never mentioned that that theory is fiction developed around a few loosely knit facts. This is no different than playwrights who are given ideas for stage productions. They take the ideas mold them in their minds and produce shows, imaginary and fictional shows. Theory is never fact until it is proven. If it is proven false but still held and published as a theory, it is a fraud. The world of ancient archeological and anthropological study is rife with fraud.
The most theorized, studied, speculated, and exploited of the world’s ancient wonders is the Great Pyramid at the apex of the Nile River Delta in Egypt. Dwarfing the city of Giza, next to which it is located, it is the world’s largest and it’s most controversial structure. Unsurpassed in grandeur and unique in design and craftsmanship, it is the last survivor of the original Seven Wonders of the World. It is also so solid, massive, and tightly constructed even with its protective covering long ago removed it will certainly outlast any structures built, even today. It is an architectural anomaly in every way from the site of its construction to the height of its missing capstone. Yet it is relegated to the status of a circus sideshow replete with hawkers and vendors and the atmosphere of any common tourist trap. And to further add to this indignity, the entity that oversees it is a government bureaucracy. Despite all the obstacles the wonder of this megalith doesn’t need theories to justify its importance or unlock its secrets. It is so big that most of its amazing characteristics are right out in the open and cannot be truthfully ignored.
The Great Pyramid is always referred to as a grand monument and an overbuilt tomb for a dead pharaoh. A pharaoh who presumably dedicated the better part of his life preparing for his death. Though he supposedly enslaved hundreds of thousands of laborers for decades with the purpose of becoming an historical icon, he seemed to have lost interest in his grand project. Leaving no records of this, his lifelong pursuit, and not even bothering to use it, he sealed it up empty and had himself buried in obvious obscurity. Not that he was shy as he was building the largest building on earth as his personal gigantic memorial. No one seems to question why he turned his regal back on the most magnificent construct- ion project ever undertaken and felt no need to take credit for it. As a matter of fact, there are many questions about the Great Pyramid that go without even casual notice. Instead all the research goes into one area. How did he do it? And a good question that is! It was Herodotus of Halicanassus, (a fifth century BC traveler), who first speculated that hundreds of thousands of unskilled workers spent billions of hours erecting the largest building on earth. But time passed, and knowledge increased until with modern technology it was discovered that this was more than just the most massive structure on the planet. Higher mathematics, modern measuring and surveying techniques and a greater understanding of construction methods cast a not so surprising cloud of serious doubt over the millenniums old theory. Unfortunately, the modern Egyptologists and other “experts” in this area never noticed these newfangled advances in knowledge. Instead they cling to one man’s casual attempt to explain something they can’t even begin to demonstrate as factual. They also hold fast to many other antiquated notions while ignoring reality. They simply repeat the same timeworn theories as though they were wisdom for the ages. If by chance the Great Pyramid has a significance equal to the wonders of its design and engineering, there are those who seem to be guilty of a crime against the world community. That crime is the withholding information that could drastically alter not only mankind’s view of its history but its future.
It is for this reason and to set the record straight that this research has been under-taken and published. Although to any viewer the Great Pyramid is an awesome sight there is much more than meets the eye. The purpose of this writing to proclaim the truth about what is known and expose the apparent conspiracy of ignorance and misinformation surrounding this, the greatest structure ever built
SCIENCE FACT OR SCIENCE FICTION
Is the published information available about the Great Pyramid based on credible facts or the imagination of scientists that need good stories to fill their publishing quotas? To learn the truth all must be questioned.
The Great Pyramid has always been a mysterious symbol. It has attracted the attention of a virtual directory of the orthodox as well as unconventional disciplines. Every stripe from astronomers to psychics has measured, prodded, speculated, meditated, dowsed, and astral projected under, over, around, and through this the greatest of all landmarks. Alexander the Great studied it and Napoleon even spent the night inside alone. However, the biggest mystery involved and probably the only man-made aspect of this structure is the wealth of misinformation and grossly exaggerated speculation about it. In an attempt to fill an historical vacuum those “in authority ” have put forth a series of less than factual based theories about its age, its builders, and purpose. Any encyclopedia or general reference work will be sufficient to encapsulate the total lack of knowledge the recognized experts have. Here in a nutshell is what most people know about the most spectacular building ever constructed. Khufu, a mysterious pharaoh who ruled Egypt between 2551-2528 BC, needed a tomb. So he spent the better part of his short life either employing or enslaving hundreds of thousands of laborers for 20 years in the most intense and complicated building project ever undertaken. This is the basic theorem of most reference works and is usually followed by some bizarre scenario of how he did this on such a grand scale with so little time. And that’s it. The level of information given in the standard works available might make for an adequate junior high school report but only if the information was correct. And it is not. This haphazard, mystifying, and narrow-minded approach to this structure is nothing short of baffling.
That’s what they do tell us. This is what they don’t tell us. It is seldom mentioned that the Great Pyramid covers an area large enough to hold 10 football fields, 7 soccer fields, 27 miles of sidewalk, or 250 single stories, two-bedroom homes. They do not go into much detail about things like this because they can’t explain it They can’t explain how 47 centuries ago, with no surveying knowledge or technology, no earth moving, grading or leveling devices, and no understanding of geology that anyone could level a massive area almost 600,000 square feet level to within ½ of an inch of perfect. Without tools and technology, it would be almost impossible to level even a small parking lot with such accuracy. Almost 5000 years of incredible advances in construction techniques and equipment and it is doubtful such an achievement could be duplicated even today. Major industrial contractors not only say it is not possible but are at a loss to explain how it could have been done originally. And this is the foundation, the beginning, not the whole structure. The way a builder starts the project, the accuracy of the layout, and the preparation of the site reflects the quality and craftsmanship of that builder. And true to the start this incredible precision is carried throughout the Great Pyramid, bottom to top, inside and out. Two and a half million blocks, none weighing less than a ton, for a combined total of 90 million cubic feet weighing 6.5 million tons, soaring to almost 500 feet, perfectly cut, transported and precisely placed so perfectly a razor can’t fit in the joints. And the Egyptians that supposedly built it didn’t even have a wheel or a compass. The reason they don’t try to explain this is they can’t and don’t want to accept or admit the truth. The orthodox hierarchy apparently thinks that its antiquated theories if repeated often enough will somehow magically become truth. Not to say that the majority of the public doesn’t blindly accept the obviously impossible. But all the titles, and positions, and publishing credits can’t change one basic truth. The technology and tools available in the 27th century BC could not and did not build the largest and most precise structure ever erected on this planet.
KHUFU THE WORLD’S GREATEST ARCHITECT?
The pharaoh who supposedly commissioned the project is a virtual unknown as is most of the information of his day. There are few records of his reign and only vague references to his association with the Great Pyramid. The only physical image of Khufu is a four-inch-high ivory seated figure, found in the temple of Abydos, some over 250 miles to the south of the Giza complex. There are also images of flying vehicles at Abydos. Of the few written references to Khufu one is recorded on an ancient stone tablet called the ‘Inventory Stele’, found at Giza in the mid-1800s, now at the Cairo Museum. It speaks of Khufu’s restoration of a small temple in the Giza complex, and an indication that the Sphinx and the Sphinx Temple were already in existence in Khufu’s day and also intimates that the Great Pyramid itself was a well-established monument before his reign. There are no records of his day even remotely referring to him as its builder. Not until 2200 years after the supposed date of construction did anyone attempt to give him credit for this awesome feat. Enter Herodotus, a Greek historian of the 5th century BC (a writer, not an anthropologist), who wrote “The Histories “, a travel almanac he wrote while on an historical quest. He claims that 100,000 men spent 20 years putting this puzzle together. What we do know is that most of his writings about the Great Pyramid are based on interviews with priests. No consideration is given to the fact that they are relating information about time 22 centuries before. Also, there is the fact that the method of construction proposed is based on his personal speculation, not any given facts. Knowing nothing about the true complexity of this structure all he did was put forth his much-unlearned opinion. Yet the experts, who simply repeat as facts what scientists, blindly accept his opinion as truth and engineers say is nothing more than factual heresy. It is a little-known fact that Herodotus recorded that these same priests also spoke about other things. These priests told Heroditus that their priesthood had existed for over a hundred centuries and that before that the gods had been on Earth coexisting with mankind. Do we read in the authoritative writings that there was a real race of real gods living with mankind 11,000 years ago in Egypt? No! And why not, considering that their words about the authorship of the Great Pyramid are accepted as historical fact? If their information about planet dwelling gods is true then what we have is a stunning revelation that would certainly change the course of history and alter the view of life for the entire world! As a matter of fact it would confirm the very theories proposed by those that the orthodoxy considers as radical fringe. Not to mention that this would explain why we see highly advanced mathematics and engineering in this structure. But if they don’t talk about this aspect of the priestly interview and their divine revelations, (which obviously are more important than Khufu), then we must assume that they don’t believe in the god living with man connection. If this were suspect, then logic would support the supposition that anything the priests spoke about should be questioned. Khufu’s name was found, under mysterious circumstances, on a granite slab above the ceiling of the main chamber of the Great Pyramid as some small roughly scribbled chalk marks that had a slight resemblance to a hieroglyphic symbol for the name of Khufu. However, this discovery is suspect to say the least and appears to have been planted to further the career and not surprisingly to save the funding, of its author. Most hieroglyph experts now believe this is a forgery perpetrated by Richard Howard-Vyse the man who found them. The discovery was instantly questioned because of its timing. Apparently, there had been a thorough search of the area of his find the day before but this incredible find went undiscovered until he returned the next day and spent time alone in the chamber. Also apparent was that Howard-Vyse was under pressure to equal the discoveries of the explorer Caviglia, who found inscriptions in tombs within the Giza complex. Modern experts suspect this find was an attempt to win a battle for one-upmanship and counter severe financial pressure from an expensive and unfruitful project. There is no reliable evidence that Khufu built this pyramid.
THE MAGNIFICENT TOMB?
The facts literally bury this fanciful notion that the pyramid was designed as a tomb. First, no evidence that it was ever intended to be a tomb for Khufu or anyone else exists. The only remnant we have of this purported great architect and builder is the small statue found in a funerary complex near the Great Pyramid with inscriptions citing Cheops / Khufu as the reigning pharaoh of the time of the building of that complex. There is no mention of him being the builder of the Great Pyramid. There were no articles, fragments, records, or traces of any kind showing any evidence that this pyramid was ever used for a burial, period! Added to this weak foundation of theory is one overwhelming fact. Within the 100+ pyramids in Egypt not one body has ever been found, not even inside sealed sarcophagi. On the Inventory Stele dated about 1500 BC, Khufu tells of discoveries made while clearing away the sands from the pyramid, of his dedication of the monument to Isis, and of his building of the three small pyramids for himself, his wife, and his daughters next to the Great Pyramid. Again, no mention that he was the builder of the Great Pyramid or that it was his personal mausoleum. Not one of the rulers of the Egypt’s fourth dynasty period put personal inscriptions on the pyramids supposedly built in their times. However, from the fifth dynasty forward the other pyramids were covered with text, leaving no question about which kings built them. It defies logic that a man so enamored with himself that he builds the world’s largest structure to house his dead body would leave not one shred of evidence that he did it. Hardly what one would expect from history’s number one narcissist. No, it is more likely that Khufu only did what is truly recorded, digging it out of untold centuries of built up sand.
HISTORY’S GREATEST CONSTRUCTION CREW?
Of all the information commonly available about the Great Pyramid the methods of construction proposed by the ‘experts’ can probably be categorized as absolute and very bad fiction. From the foundation it sits upon to watertight mantle that once covered it, every aspect of the Great Pyramid defies the primitive state of knowledge of the 27th century BC. The tools required for such precision cutting of such massive stones simply did not exist. The higher mathematics employed was not even known for many centuries in the future. The equipment required to move and assemble the millions of components does not even exist today. And we are expected to believe that without even the most basic tool, the wheel, and math so primitive that the number 0 had not even been discovered, they achieved a feat, which we may not be able to duplicate for decades if not centuries to come. Just the design would take a computer to produce. Even a weekend handyman can testify that you can’t do a job without the proper tools. You can’t cleanly shear off the top of a granite mountain with copper chisels, but that’s what they claim was done. They had no steel or explosives. Brute strength, no matter how many bodies are working, and no matter how long it is applied won’t accomplish the impossible. The one thing we can be certain about is this. Not hundreds of thousands, or for that matter, not even hundreds of millions of slaves could have built this magnificent monument without technology they did not fathom, nor without tools they did not possess. There is only one indicator of the possible age of the Great Pyramid other than speculation and hearsay. In the 1980’s the Great Pyramid was radiocarbon dated, not the stone, but the mortar. Mortar can be used to date fragments of organic material, such as wood and carbon residue, which are sometimes found embedded in the mortar between the stone blocks. The radiocarbon dates for the Great Pyramid ranged from 2853 to 3809 BC, the average being 3029 BC, which would make the pyramid some 400 years older than, is currently believed. But two factors must be taken into this equation. The reliability of radiocarbon dating has been called into question on many occasions, so this must be considered in that light. And of course, the fact that the ‘mortar’ has not been identified so what effect that has on the figures is unknown. Of more obvious concern are the why and the who which if discovered could greatly diminish the importance of the when.
A practical look at the scenario as speculated by Herodotus, is only fair, at least for the sake of objectivity. Herodotus used the 20-year time frame. Since we are told that the laborers were either slaves or fanatically dedicated to a god king we must therefore assume the crews were forging ahead with all possible speed. Dawn to dusk is a good brisk pace and only logical considering the absence of light during the other 12 hours. So let us assume they worked 12 hours a day. To assume that they worked 365 days a year for twenty years straight in a super-heavy construction environment is really stretching it. Floods, storms, (both water and dust varieties), earthquakes, and holidays (certainly Khufu had his share) would take their toll on progress. Even modern building projects have their share of construction delays. Everything factored in and with good luck a year-round average of 6 full days a week is a reasonable number for
Here’s the formula:
2,500,000 blocks divided by 20 years = 125,000 blocks per year.
125,000 blocks divided by 312 days per year = 400 blocks per day.
400 blocks divided by 12 hours per day = 33+ blocks per hour.
33 blocks per hour = 1 block bonded perfectly in place in less than two minutes.
And placing the blocks in the precise position was not the only task. Each block weighing at least a ton was cut from a quarry using primitive tools, at best. But right there we run into a serious snag. They had no tools capable of cutting stone almost perfectly square and in the case of the outer blocks to fit a curved pattern especially to tolerances from .02 to .002 of an inch. To date no tools made form materials capable of cutting even the softest of stones used in the structure have ever been found and history tells us such technology did not exist. The only tools the “experts” claim they used were made of copper and bronze, metals that cannot cut stone. A modern carpentry saw is much harder than any metal the indigenous peoples of Egypt possessed yet such a saw could not stand up to the simple task of cutting a small red brick and could only scratch granite.
Each of the 2.5 million blocks was transported 10 to 600 miles to the building site using no wheels, over forbidding terrain that would give a tank a run for its money. Since the closest quarries are 10 miles away and no stones weighed less than a ton the transporting of this volume of material over rough terrain was totally impractical and beyond realistic. Trees were a limited commodity in Egypt and then mainly palm trees, which would be useless for construction purposes. The closest usable trees were hundreds of miles away and would have taken a virtual armada of cargo vessels and a massive transportation network just to keep the wood supply flowing. This fleet would be larger than all the sailing craft Egypt possessed in its entire early history.
Thirteen billion pounds of massive blocks had to be floated across the Nile River against a powerful downstream current in all conditions on barges bigger than those we have today with no power. One of the serious questions posed is whether it was humanly possible to transport any of these massive stones across the Nile at all. There is no evidence that we can build barges today that are large enough to float such tremendous weight in such shallow environs. Each block was loaded on and off those barges without sinking them and with no cranes or winches. Some of the blocks weighed in at 150,000 pounds or the weight of a modern locomotive. They had to be lifted up in the air, dropped on a barge, and then lifted off the barge across the river. There is no evidence of the materials, lifting mechanisms, or navigation techniques that would be essential to such a massive marine operation. And there is no evidence that such technology existed in this society that was in a primitive state at best.
Every piece was dragged uphill to 400 feet above river level and pushed or pulled up a 50-degree incline. The orthodox explanation of how this was done involves the use of ramps. Ramps might be the answer for at least this part of these feats of wonder that these primitive builders supposedly easily accomplished except for two problems. First Danish engineer, P. Garde-Hanson, proposed that such a ramp would require 600 million cubic feet of material, this representing more than seven times the amount of material in the pyramid itself. Secondly these imaginary ramps had to be removed, meaning that the material used for the ramps had to be put somewhere. If such a pile were flattened out to a level of one foot it would spread out over an area of over twenty square miles. It has never been found and this much material simply cannot be hidden. Ramps were not used.
Each component was then placed and cemented perfectly next to its neighboring blocks 1/50 of an inch away. But not just jostling into place. The stones were not chipped or gouged even on the corners which defies the reality that orthodox methods of placement present. Dragging, rolling, levering, and hoisting with unsophisticated equipment and primitive tools would doubtless leave considerable damage on such finely cut surfaces. Which means that the indigenous peoples of 2500 BC did not place these blocks. Not to mention that the material they used to cement the blocks is of unknown origin.
And finally the most incredible feat each massive block was tailored from the beginning to fit exactly into a 2.5 million piece, 481 foot high, 90 million cubic foot, 13 billion pound, absolutely baffling, and amazingly accurate puzzle. Each one of the above feats is a monumental technological accomplishment in its own right. It is safe to say that even using the best technology and equipment available today that the Herodotus theory is impossible. For the modern day orthodox pyramidologists to so readily accept and authoritatively teach this as doctrine is illogical. So why teach it? Perhaps they feel that spouting impractical theories is preferable to admitting ignorance. Do they have the ivory tower complex and feel that the unworthy masses don’t deserve the truth? Whatever the reason it is wrong, and they are wrong for teaching a ridiculous and downright laughable theory as truth.
THE INEVITABLE CONCLUSION
It is safe to say that just this cursory view of the Great Pyramid brings the fanatically accepted and widely disseminated orthodox doctrines of human builders into serious doubt. With blustery pomposity and callous disregard for glaring contradictions to their antiquated theories they draw a shadowy veil over the world’s largest enigma. And this is more serious than overprotective academic snobbery. This is the largest and possibly oldest building on earth. Considering the incredible engineering in this structure it makes no sense to tout a millenniums old hypothesis. Many attempts have been made to try and duplicate the original builder’s mysterious construction methods and have proven nothing. What is telling have been attempts recently to just move some of the blocks in the structure for renovation purposes. The blocks could not be shifted by any conventional techniques and had to be broken up into smaller pieces just to move them. Demolition would be out of the question. So what kind of an ego could insist that technologically ancient man could have built such a wonder when modern space age man can’t even tear it down? No, men did not build the Great Pyramid. Someone or something with knowledge and tools far beyond our understanding built it. All the doctorates, titles, publishing credits, and institutions in the world cannot and will not change that fact.
THE CENTER OF THE EARTH
Located at the site of ancient city of Memphis this area has a rich history and culture that is shockingly void of references to the origin of the Great Pyramid. How important is the Great Pyramid in the overall scheme of things? This is a world where technology has escaped from the lab and is now ravenously consuming and dictating almost every aspect of human life. Of what use is a stone monument, millenniums old, in the middle of a desert, without even the smallest of signs left to tell us what it was? You can’t get much less technical than that! But a closer study shows some surprising technical aspects to this particular monument, one of them being where in the desert it is located. The pyramid is located at 29 degrees, 58 minutes, 51.06 seconds north latitude, and 31 degrees, 9 minutes, and 0.0 seconds east longitude. The north-south axis is the longest land meridian, passing through Asia, Africa, Europe, and Antarctica, and the east-west axis is the longest land parallel running through the African, Asian, and north American continents. These two lines of latitude and longitude on which it lies pass through more land and less water than any others. In layman’s language the pyramid lies at the very center of the earth’s entire land mass. The only other point of intersection of these two lines is over the ocean. This choice by an Egyptian builder 5000 years ago virtually impossible. First these lines were unknown five millennia ago for one simple reason. There was no world travel, no world map, no concept that the world was even a planet. They thought the earth was flat. It was not until thousands of years in the future that the center of the earth’s land mass could even be guessed at. And not until satellite photography that the exact center could be located. Yet we are expected to believe that without the use of something as simple as a compass they had any possible means or any logical reason to accomplish such a feat. Since there is enough land area on earth to provide three billion possible sites for the pyramid, the odds of this being random are 1 in 3 billion. Lines drawn through the pyramid to the four cardinal points of the compass divide equally the earth’s terrain. It is therefore the logical and geographical zero of longitude, rather than Greenwich, England. Bottom line; they wouldn’t, couldn’t, and didn’t. No technology, no way!! Yet the builder was even more precise with this monument’s exact placement on the Giza plateau itself . Located at the edge of a cliff, an immense amount of excavation and leveling was required to place it on such a precise point. There were many other more practical areas on the Giza plateau this structure could have been erected. A grading contractor would probably consider this placement one of the most difficult areas on the plateau. Thousands of yards of solid granite had to be cut away in one area while thousands of yards of fill had to be placed in another. Great pains to put it right there would require better surveying technology than exists today.
And yet another impossible and seemingly unnecessary step was taken in the course of this placing. In truth it is the most precisely oriented building on earth. Deviating only 3/60th of a degree off true north it is aligned with the four cardinal points, more accurately than any contemporary structure, including the meridian building at the Greenwich Observatory in London. The Paris observatory, is six minutes of a degree off true north. The great pyramid is only three minutes off given the odds a chance of about 1 in 200,000 if accidental. And it had to be accidental because nobody knew in that day where true north was or for that matter even what true north was. Since the position of the north pole moves over time the pyramid was probably exactly aligned to true north at one time. All this precision 4000 years before the compass is invented. And if you do figure the center of the land mass odds you’re into the quadrillions or about 40 million more times likely to win the state lottery. Sounds confusing doesn’t it? But not near as confusing as trying to believe that this was random. With these numbers it is certainly easier to see that there was a purpose to all this precision and that somebody had the purpose and the means. It is there therefore it is.
One of the questions often asked is why are there ‘air shafts` in a building meant for a ‘dead` pharaoh. Other pyramids and mastabas, (burial chambers), weren’t built with ventilation, why this one? Well, perhaps the name is wrong, and a more appropriate name would be ‘star shafts`. Why star shafts? Consider the following:
The north shaft of the Kings Chamber is aligned with Alpha Draconis formerly Earth’s Pole star
The south shaft of the Kings Chamber is aligned with Zeta Orionis
The north shaft of the Queens Chamber is aligned with Orion
The south shaft of the Queens Chamber is aligned with Sirius
The air shafts aren’t the only star pointers in the Great Pyramid. The Descending Passage seems star bound! Between 2170 and 2144 it was aligned with Alpha Draconis then the Pole star. For 4141 years it languished in relative stellar insignificance until 1997 when Polaris the current Pole star began to cast its light down its 344 ft. almost perfectly straight shaft. It will illuminate the bottom of that shaft in 2004. And there is the layout of the three largest pyramids on the Giza Plateau one of which is second in worldwide building size only to the Great Pyramid. Their relative positions mirror the positions of the three stars in the Belt of Orion. What this star alignment means is known only to the builder. Archeoastronomy which is the science of historical stellar alignment has speculated as to the significance of these anomalies. Societies of belief have embraced them. But little is said about why an ancient pharaoh would or could design and install all these complicated calibrations. After all this would have taken a ‘rocket scientist`. No, Khufu couldn’t have even if he’d wanted to.
HOW GREAT IS THE GREAT PYRAMID?
There is nothing so wasteful as doing with great efficiency that which doesn’t have to be done at all.
As any journeyman in almost any construction trade will testify precision is more than just a learned skill, it’s an attitude. All craftsman are asked why they make those cuts so perfect or why go that extra step? And when that familiar term ‘over-built’ enters the conversation of those taking pride in their work it is really mean it as ‘built to last’. The Great Pyramid is the decidedly the most over built and at the same time the most precisely engineered building on the planet. Therefore, it is safe to assume that the builders were first supreme craftsman and certainly intended this structure to last for a long time. And last it has, for at least 4700 years and quite possibly many thousands more. Until a mere six centuries ago it was still protected by a watertight covering of shimmering white limestone. Big seems like a understatement to describe every aspect of this awesome structure. There is no stone in the entire construction weighing less than a ton with some near the top weighing 70 tons. The red bricks so familiar in modern building are minuscule compared to even the smallest of these blocks but make a good point of reference. Three thousand-pound blocks aren’t used in construction for the same reason little red bricks are, practicality. The total number of bricks equaling the weight of blocks used in the pyramid is I billion 350 million or enough bricks to build a walkway over 14,000 miles long.
Using the accepted theory 900 tons or 350 blocks with all the men, animals, and materials required to move 5000 pounds of dead weight were moving at the constant pace of a mile an hour. Lightning speed for 2 ½ tons with no wheels and rough terrain. All this material was dragged to the river, loaded onto barges, pulled upstream, unloaded on the other side, and dragged up hill some 400 feet above river level each day. Then all the men, animals and materials had to return to the quarry. The number of men required to cut and extract 350, 5000 pound blocks every day of the year would be incalculable. The crews that could drag, cement, align and precisely place 350 blocks per day had to be to say the least above average.
THE TRUE JEWEL OF THE NILE
With its shimmering white limestone mantle in place no edifice on Earth more deserved this title in the past. With the knowledge of its absolute orientation, unparalleled structural integrity, and amazing precision of engineering it more than deserves that title today. Unfortunately, the original beauty of the Great Pyramid has been stripped from its surface and what remains testifies only to its structural grandeur. In its full glory it was truly ‘The Jewel of the Nile’. It was originally encased in a thick mantle of white highly polished limestone blocks. Standing at the head of the Nile Delta it shined resplendently. The surface blocks were so finely cut and naturally polished that this structure could be clearly seen as far as two hundred miles away. Even in moonlight the surface gleamed with such brilliance that mariners could use this huge monument as a nocturnal navigational point. One important aspect of its unusual mirror-like mantle was that it has concave sides. This unusual feature wasn’t discovered until the advent of human flight. This enhanced the reflective appearance of the 22 acres of highly polished surface. But these concave sides mirrored more than light. The precise curvature built into the Great Pyramid replicates the exact curvature of the planet it sits on.
Even with a the very rough surface the Great Pyramid can easily be seen from space. Traveler and popular author Abdul Latif recorded in the 12th century that the casing stones were inscribed with strange hieroglyphs that were unknown even in that age. He stated that the multitude of these inscriptions would require thousands of pages of space just to record. William of Baldensal, a European visitor of the early fourteenth century, tells how the stones were covered with strange symbols arranged in careful rows. Heroditus also wrote of these symbols. The casing stones were dislodged for the first time in untold thousands of years by a major earthquake in the middle of the14th century. They were removed and used to rebuild the city of Cairo also leveled by the earthquake plus Cairo’s mosques and palaces, including the mosque of Sultan Hasan. These stones were highly prized for their beauty, size and ages of durability and over time were almost completely stripped away leaving not only the beauty of this monument only to the imagination, but the valuable wealth of secrets contained in the inscriptions.
None of the text was ever found. And it is those very markings that present one of the most baffling questions about the builder. Why would a pharaoh build a very big tomb for his royal journey into the after world, cover it with inscriptions in a language that know no one could interpret and not even bother to put one single symbol on the inside? One can hardly imagine the ancient efforts made to decipher those symbols. It’s a given that there was no lack of curiosity about what was written on the largest building on Earth. And it makes no sense that its meaning was ever known. This is hardly something that could easily be forgotten, and it is simply too big to just fade away. Something important was recorded here and it is hard to believe that it was Khufu’s last will or final words to the world and why not in hieroglyphics. These came into fashion about 800 years before it is alleged the Great Pyramid was built and were used well after that time. There has been an ongoing search for a royal library supposedly in or somewhere around the Giza complex that has man’s origin, the true history of the world and revelations about the pyramid’s builder. There seems to be no interest in the many thousands of symbols known to have been there or speculation that it may have been that ‘royal library’.
What does remain gives evidence as to why this giant has held the amazement of mankind for as long as time has been recorded. One Greek historian named Diodorus Siculus who lived during the 1st century BC said, “the pyramids …by the immensity of the work and the skill of their construction strike those who see them with wonder and awe”. The casing stones stand alone as marvel of craftsmanship and unrivaled precision on an inconceivable scale. The estimated number of these stones is between 110,000 and 150,000 though the exact number of 144,000 most often appears. White limestone blocks similar to marble but superior in hardness and in durability against the elements were used. They averaged 40 tons each before they were cut and polished. They were about 8 feet thick and weighing about 15 tons after nearly perfect right angles were cut on six sides to a jeweler’s accuracy of 1/100th of an inch. The fact that they were cut this carefully on the unexposed sides shows clearly that this was no ordinary stone mason with primitive tools. As a matter of fact, this was no master mason with the most sophisticated equipment and technology available today. It cannot be duplicated. They didn’t stop there. They cut these huge blocks with such detail that they left an intentional gap of 2/100ths of an inch for a very unique adhesive. It is unique for many reasons such as its water sealing ability and the highly unusual fact that it is still holding after thousands of years. The extreme thinness of application, 1/50 of an inch to hold multi-ton blocks placed at precarious angles, is also unusual. But the adhesive itself is more than unusual, it is unworldly. Of the 65,000 substances known on Earth this composition of this ‘super glue` is unidentifiable. It defies scientific description or duplication. This coupled with the fact that cementing the joints multiplies the difficulty of placement adds to the mountain of evidence against the conventional ideology. Simple gypsum mortar is the standard adhesive present in Giza and elsewhere in the region as a masonry binder. The fine white limestone casing blocks were cut in quarries at Tura, about 8 miles away on the other side of the Nile and from Masara with not even slightly chipped corners and no tool marks on any remaining blocks.
THE WORLD’S GREATEST BUILDER
The ‘they’ in ” how they did it ” is the main reason for all the mystery surrounding the Great Pyramid. If this is approached with the concept that it was built by a horde of slaves driven by a self-serving pharaoh in a period of time some 4700 years ago then reality must be discarded. If this is to be accepted one must totally ignore almost every aspect of what is factually known about this structure. This leaves a neat pile of very big stones, many weak if not ridiculous explanations of its construction, and a mass of unanswerable questions as weighty as the structure itself. Fortunately, it is much easier to ask how they could not possibly have done it. All those unanswered questions suddenly become perfectly logical statements of fact. The list of the things the Egyptians in 2600 BC could not have done is extensive. The list of things they could have done is non-existent.
Let’s start at the beginning. The decision to place the Great Pyramid at the exact center of the Earth’s land mass was a good choice. But who made that choice? Certainly not a person living 5000 years ago because no one knew where the center was or that there even was a center. But obviously someone did know because they found it. What did it take to find that center and pinpoint it? Lines of longitude and latitude are essential because a straight line encircling the globe would be the only way to know how much land and water was passed over by each line. Lines of latitude were available in the 13th century AD but longitude accuracy was not even considered until the 17th century AD. To pinpoint the exact center of the land mass was not possible until the 19th century. Therefore, someone knew about this spot 4500 years before mankind knew about it. Then there’s that sticky part about the globe. It wasn’t until the Magellan crew first circumnavigating the globe became the first ex-members of the Flat Earth Society in the early 16th century AD. The ancient Egyptians knew about Egypt and some surrounding countries, but the global concept was unheard of. But someone did. Finally, there is the matter of knowing where all that land is and that takes something that assures the Egyptians didn’t locate the center of the Earth’s land mass, flight. You have to up in the air, way up in the air to see all that land. Khufu and company were confirmed ground pounders. It wasn’t until the late 1700s that balloons were discovered thus first enabling man to fly. But whoever located this spot could fly or they could never have found it.
Conclusion: Khufu and his imaginary crew did not know the Earth was round and knew little if anything about the planet’s land mass. They had no understanding of lines of longitude and latitude and their only knowledge of flight was that birds did it and even kites weren’t around for another 45+ centuries. They couldn’t find this spot and they didn’t find this spot. Whoever did locate it was in possession of knowledge that could not be obtained without the sophisticated equipment commonly associated with our own space program. Difficult high-altitude measurements were required along with an advanced education in geodesy, (the science of planetary measurement), and a mastery of higher mathematics. The only evidence of ancient Egyptian math is evidence that it was in a primitive state, absent the concept of the number 0, for instance.
As if to confirm this the builders added a not so little touch that went unrecognized until the advent of that key to this mystery, flight. On a flight over the Great Pyramid it was discovered that the sides of the pyramid were not straight but curved inward. It was only a slight curve and therefore was not even noticeable at ground level, but the base lines were uniformly concave. A unique feature to this pyramid and only one of many aspects particular to this edifice. On further investigation the reason for so slight a curve became obvious. It replicated the curvature of the planet it sits upon and is exact on all four sides. This means it was intentional and even more amazing the blocks weren’t laid that way, they were cut that way! The natural curvature of the Earth was literally in the original design. Back to the globe problem. How did Khufu know how round the earth was if he didn’t know it was round in the first place? Simple, he didn’t. But what if, as orthodox Egyptologists would have you believe, this too was a chance number that just accidentally showed up. Could they have duplicated it exactly on all four sides and why go to all that trouble in the first place? More will be said about how these stones were cut but for now it is safe to say that implying that they did purposefully duplicate it four times is beyond logic. You can’t make a perfect mistake four times in a row no matter how hard you try.
The following is a list of all the things discussed in this writing that must have been done to complete the construction of the Great Pyramid but that the Egyptians of the 27th century BC were not capable of doing
