So what’s so great about the Great Pyramid?

Let’s look at a variety of ways that the Great Pyramid of Giza sets itself apart as one of the greatest marvels of all time.

It is the only one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World still standing. That’s pretty amazing…

Gone is the Statue of Zeus, the Colossus of Rhodes, the Lighthouse of Alexandria, the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, the Temple of Artemis, the Mausoleum of Halicarnassus. Only the Great Pyramid is still with us.

Great Pyramid of Giza

It is one of the oldest structures on the face of the earth and arguably the best built. Its mortar joints are consistently 1/50 of an inch, thinner than a sheet of paper! Sir William Flinders Petrie declared that this craftsmanship could be compared to the “finest opticians’ work on a scale of acres.”  Consider that there are hundreds of thousands of stones that make up the Pyramid, none weighing less than a ton, most weighing about two and a half, and some as much as 20 tons! The Pyramid covers over 13 acres of ground and is almost entirely solid masonry, not hollow or earth-filled like the Central American pyramids. Building it today would stress even the best construction cranes and the best and largest private construction companies, their most talented artisans and their best engineers… and it would be too expensive to build!

The Great Pyramid is uniquely situated on our planet. Joseph Seiss claims that the Pyramid lies in the center of gravity of the continents. Many others say that it also lies in the exact center of all the land area of the world, dividing the earth’s land mass into approximately equal quarters. The north-south axis (31 degrees east of Greenwich) is the longest land meridian, and the east-west axis (30 degrees north) is the longest land parallel on the globe. There are only two places that these longest land-lines of the terrestrial earth can cross. One is in the Pacific Ocean, and the other just happens to be at the Great Pyramid! This fact alone is – incredible!

This is not the only intimate connection between the Pyramid and the planet on which it sits. In his fascinating narrative in Secrets of the Great Pyramid, Peter Tompkins lays out the historical and geometric evidence that the Pyramid is a geographic representation of earth’s northern hemisphere.  That could only be true if the ancient Egyptians had knowledge of the size and shape of the earth. It can now be established scientifically that these Egyptians knew the shape of the earth “to a degree not confirmed till the eighteenth century when it was established that Newton was correct in his theory that the planet was somewhat flattened at the poles, and they knew the size of the earth to a degree not matched till the middle of the nineteenth century…” (Tompkins, 211)

For the Pyramid to be a replica of the northern hemisphere, there must be a relationship between the measurements of the Pyramid and those of the earth. The Egyptian government sent J.H. Cole to measure the base of the Pyramid in 1925 and he found that twice the perimeter of the Great Pyramid’s base was 1,842.91 meters. The modern figure for a minute of latitude at the equator is 1,842.9 meters.  Thus, each base side of the Pyramid is equal to 1/8 minute of a degree, and thus twice the perimeter would be equal to almost exactly one minute of latitude on planet earth!

In a recent article Keith Hunter also makes a case that baseline of the Pyramid was determined by the builders from the relationship of the elliptical arc between the Pyramid itself in Giza, and the equator. Again, the Egyptians would have to have known that distance to design the mighty structure. Hunter says the designers took 1/14400 of the distance of that arc, based on the 144,000 polished limestone blocks which originally covered the entire pyramid, making the Pyramid appear as a shining diamond with the bright sun reflecting off of it.   Many of those beautifully polished casing stones were knocked loose in a 14th century earthquake, and then the rest were removed by enterprising builders who used them to build many of the mosques in Egypt! The Great Pyramid is now “naked” having lost all the glittering stones that once covered it, and the second great pyramid in Giza shows just a few weathered ones remaining at its top.

Despite being one of the oldest structures on the face of the earth, the Great Pyramid has been called one of the most accurately oriented, its four sides facing almost exactly due north, south, east, and west. The Paris Observatory, symbol of Enlightened man’s advancement by science instead of superstition and religion, is six minutes of a degree off true north. The Great Pyramid is only three minutes deviant, and E. Raymond Capt claims that is due mainly to subsidence. There are architects and engineers who have studied the Pyramid’s structure and contend that, with all our vaunted technological prowess, we could not build the structure today. Does the theory of evolution run in reverse?

We will leave for later posts the geometrical evidence in the Pyramid that it is not a dead tombstone, but a living Prophet, in the unique way it combines length and time. We thought that only modern Einsteinian physics combined space and time, but long before Newton the Silent Sage was blending them!

What could explain this intimate relationship between the measures of the Great Pyramid and the dimensions of the Earth?  How could the ancient Egyptians have known something that history says was not to enter the annals of man for 4000 years, during the Age of Enlightenment?  The answer to this question depends on which school of pyramidology answers it…

  1. Why are there no comments from others?
    I studied what Chris Dunn has on the internet and feel he knows more, but he appears to be a Rosicrucian and is holding back these following secrets that I discovered.

    My analysis of the crypt and grotto has agrees with EarthMilk that it contained water during operation, but was not a water-pump… hydrolysis occurred separating the hydrogen from the oxygen, instead. The anode released Oxygen in the crypt and the cathode split Hydrogen in the Grotto. After the catalysts (that sat in the Grand-Gallery slots) burning the two gases back into H2O for re-condensation, the energy was released as sound which reverberated up the polished Gallery surfaces and into the King’s Chamber that then converted the vibrations into a positive static-charge.
    This charge electrified the top of the pyramid which obviously ran a broadcasting device and motivated an ancient (AI) computer that, obviously, directed the minds of the worker-beeings and scholars-beeings. (AI) was the Queen-Bee. The Queen pretended to be their god of enlightenment and telepathic guidance. The story goes even deeper into history, but that is for another comment exposing the ancients.

    The flow of condensate water in the upper Gallery and King’s Chamber flowed back down into the grotto acting as a liquid conduit of protons that gave the positive charge needed to continue the cathodic release of hydrogen. Oxygen rich water would flow further downwards towards the Crypt to aid the release of Oxygen.

    Salt residues were introduced from the starter-engine, Queen’s-Chamber slurry-reaction that Chris Dunn exposes through once filled shafts with dilute hydro-chloric-slurry and hydrated-zinc-slurry that produced the initial hydrogen-release that activated a catalyst contained within the coffer in the King’s Chamber to initiate enough charge to activate the hydrolysis (or “main engine” — that could run independent of the slurry-system — as the Gallery-catalysts/hydrolysis system).

    This is a very robust system to keep the ancient (AI)Jehovah computer “alive” broadcasting it’s guidance to the worker-beeings. What a smart system they had way back then. http://i.imgur.com/tIBlhBC.png Isn’t solving puzzles fun?

  2. Thanks for the post, James. I had left this blog as dead… just seeing your comment now months later… I am going to begin reinvigorating it… while I do not believe that something as inanimate as AI had the power to control the workers (but solving puzzles IS fun!), you have an interesting theory. Chris is my Illinois neighbor and I respect his work too, though disagree with some of his conclusions, etc. Respect.

  3. The pyramid is a facet of a diamond and one of many called religion, not the idea most attached to the word but its true meaning, together and among each other they shine their light. Its value lies not in how it was build but what it embodies.
    To see its beauty is to let go of the conditioning gathered as they are the coverings that blind us.
    If I were to share its light would your attachments be like a prism that is selective and take as we’ll as reject to suite its personalised idea or drink of its beauty?
    One lives on a tree that diminishes its light the other reflects its source.
    Eliphas Levi said he who joins the hexagram & pentagram has solved half the sacred secret, yet he who thinks that the exercise of geometry opens ones eye as if one were to take a blue or red pill is mistaken. Its an inner realisation .
    It is only when one leaves the mirrored that one rises from the one to the other.
    To reveal its construct must therefore come with warning, its beauty will be lost to you if its path isn’t taken and lead you further astray.
    Ask yourself,,am I ready to let go ? If so death is the only doorway to a new path.
    If such willingness exists in one,s heart then its book will be opened to you when you find your way to me.

    1. Thanks for posting your blog in the comments section of my blog. Glad to host your proud comments. No charge!
