Egyptologist John Romer says that the builders of the Great Pyramid worked from a blueprint. A large blueprint. Life sized! He says that, laid out on the East side of the Great Pyramid, is a blueprint created by holes etched in the pavement, which is the actual size of the pyramid itself. He also says that there was a full sized blueprint template used inside the Great Pyramid.
Such large scale guides assured the Pyramid would be properly oriented and level, keeping it from becoming a twisted corkscrew or leaning tower of Pisa.
But there are also other markers on the East side of the Great Pyramid which are a symbolic blueprint, of sorts, that point to the some of the hidden meanings that so much Pyramid lore suggests are there. For instance, there are series of holes going west from the Trial Passages toward the Pyramid. These point directly to place of the Grotto when viewed as a plan.
The grotto is usually considered an industrial element in the Pyramid, not a critical or meaningful part of its development, but this set of holes seems to be singling it out. The implication is: “Don’t overlook this seemingly ill-formed cavity inside the Pyramid’s bedrock. Pay attention!”
There is another peculiar set of markings on the Pyramid’s East side, which look something like tire tread marks, but in pavement stones, not mud.
When I was on the Giza Plateau in September of 2019, I took compass readings of the directions to which these markings pointed. I had linked at these markings several times before while on the Plateau, always thinking they looked intentional, interesting. But even when I began measuring the angles they seemed to be facing, I thought to myself, “But these markings are too crude to be able to point to anything specific.” But when I took the measurements back to a computer and drawing table, it was amazing to me what they pointed out! And I began to realize… they really do point more accurately than I was willing to give them credit for. Think of this mark, which you will be reading, most likely, on a computer or phone screen: “/” Does that marking, the simple “/”, point in a certain direction. Assuming your computer displays the same type font with which this is being written, we could both measure the angle of this diagonal (“/”) and we would probably come up with the same degree of its angle, or very close to the same degree. I would submit that if we sent this diagonal to 1,000 literate random users, and asked them to measure its angle from the horizontal base formed by the bottom of the text line it is on, there would be a wide unanimity -within tolerances of the challenges of properly measuring it- of what that angle is…
So I was ready to believe that while not being laser-accurate, these markings acted as general pointers, the same as if you lifted up your arm, stretched out your index finger, and pointed to a tree, and said, “Hey, look at that tree!” Here are displayed the alignments that my measures produced.
As can be seen in the graphic, the “tire tread” markings point to important parts of the Pyramid’s interior, from a plan view. The top yellow line seems to point to the beginning of the Grand Gallery, the blue to the end of the Grand Gallery (the Great Step?), the green to the antechamber, and the red to the end of the King’s Chamber. When I saw this I was astounded, really, because it seemed to be too much for coincidence. What it said to me was, “Okay, Romer sees marks here meant to keep the WHOLE pyramid in line, stable, accurate. But these markers then seem to be a commentary of sorts. Now that you have the whole Pyramid going right, what are its important PARTS from a symbolic point of view?”
And so it confirmed for me what I have believed for a long time, because of the work of others, that the Grand Gallery, the Great Step, the Antechamber and the King’s Chamber are an important part of the Great Pyramid’s meaning. They must be interpreted. They are one of the main reasons this Pyramid was built. It also seemed to say that while there may be other chambers or cavities in this Mighty Structure, these are still the important ones. You can see some YouTube videos I made on these markings:
Please let me know what you think about these markers!
