(ORDO NEWS) — The secrets of the Egyptian pyramids have been haunting the minds of researchers and all those interested in Ancient Egypt for centuries. Especially many mysteries are hidden by the three pyramids, which are located in Giza, not far from present-day Cairo.
They stand on the rocky plateau of the desert, casting clear shadows on the sand – three huge geometric bodies, impeccably regular tetrahedral pyramids, which are considered to be the tombs of the pharaohs of Cheops, Chephren and Mykerin. The largest of them – the Cheops pyramid (Khufu) – is called the Great Pyramid.
In 1864, astronomer Charles Piazzi Smith suggested that the Cheops pyramid was built to embody in this form a number of aspects of ancient, highly advanced knowledge. He had followers trying to unravel the mystery of this Egyptian pyramid.
There was an assumption about the uniqueness of the Cheops pyramid among other monuments of Ancient Egypt. His supporters argued that it was built by the will of a higher mind by newcomers from worlds with a more advanced civilization than on earth. It was assumed that in the construction of the pyramid, its parameters, ancient prophecies are encrypted, which subsequently formed the basis of the Old Testament, predetermined the future history of Christianity and predict the second coming of Christ.
When measuring the Cheops pyramid itself, it turned out that the perimeter of the Giza pyramid, divided by double height, gives the exact number “Pi”, accurate to one hundred thousandth. Interestingly, the sacred measure of the length of Egypt, i.e. the pyramidal inch (by a strange coincidence equal to modern English) is one billionth of the Earth’s orbit, passed by it in 24 hours.
The sum of the two diagonals of the Egyptian pyramid, expressed in inches, gives the number of years during which the north pole of our land makes one complete revolution. The volume of the pyramid, multiplied by the specific gravity of the stone from which it is made, gives the theoretical weight of the globe, etc.
Now there are many theories about how these Egyptian pyramids were built. According to some authors, the Cheops pyramid was built by aliens; according to others, the blocks were transferred into place using a magic crystal.
In the 1980s, Robert Buvel, a Belgian civil engineer, drew attention to a stellar analogue of the layout of the pyramids of Giza. The pattern of the mutual arrangement of the three stars in the constellation Orion, forming a kind of belt at the waist of a human figure, exactly repeats the layout of the three largest pyramids on the Giza plateau.
The Great Pyramid and Chefren’s pyramid of similar size take the place of the two brightest stars of the Orion belt, Alnitak and Alnilam, and the smaller Menkaure pyramid is offset from the axis of two neighboring ones, just like the third and smallest star of the belt – Mintaka.
Such an obvious analogy was a direct challenge to orthodox archeology, which claimed that the worship of the sun, and not the starry sky, was the basis of the Egyptian religion. Be that as it may, the presence of the phenomenon cannot be denied.
Graham Hancock, author of Traces of the Gods, working on an alternative interpretation of the history of the ancient world, believes that the observation of Buvel allows dating the pyramids by no means 2500 BC. e., and about 10 450 BC. e., when the shape of the belt of Orion exactly corresponded to the location of the pyramids.
The pyramids are one of the many evidences in favor of the existence of a certain developed civilization in that old era. Meanwhile, this era fits into the time frame of the legendary Atlantis, although no one undertakes to claim that the civilization that built the early pyramids was indeed the Atlantean civilization.
Interesting data was cited by the American scientist John Anthony West, who noticed that at two objects – the Sphinx and the Temple of the valley, located at a distance of several hundred meters from each other, there are distinct traces of severe water erosion. The giant figure of the Sphinx is located in the hollow of a steep slope, from the rock of which it was carved.
Such a trough is very quickly filled with sand, and the probability that in arid desert conditions the sand was washed out by rain streams is extremely small. But it was not always so. The Sahara region began to turn into a sandy desert only at the end of the last ice age, and another 12,000 or even 10,000 years ago there was quite abundant rainfall that could cause West’s erosion. West’s observations were recognized by nearly 300 geologists,
The construction of the pyramids was such a large-scale enterprise, it required such efforts on the part of the whole community, such expenditures of time and material resources, that serious grounds for their construction must exist. The very fact of construction was to bring to the community the favor of the gods in one form or another.
In ancient sources there is no lack of evidence of fireballs falling from the blaze, incinerating and burning everything around. It may well be that when they erected pyramids in different parts of the globe, people wanted to ask higher powers to stop the destruction of civilization and stop to bring down blazing blocks from heaven.
Another mystery of the Egyptian pyramids is that the two largest pyramids were built, apparently, in two steps. After the start of construction, for some reason, work ceased and resumed much later. Why did you make such a conclusion?
Both engineering logic and simple common sense suggest that as the pyramid grows, the size of the limestone blocks should decrease. But during the construction of the Great Pyramid, for example, in the first 18 rows, the blocks do gradually decrease in size, and by the 18th row the weight of each does not exceed several tons. However, already in the 19th row of masonry, the blocks again increased sharply in size, although they already had to be raised to a height of over 30 meters! Why?
Not all the secrets and mysteries of the Egyptian pyramids are listed here. For a long time they will excite people, prompting new research.
