THE GREAT PYRAMID - part 3
How was it built?
by Dennis Gaumond
Due to the recent discovery of an ancient pyramid in Bosnia, there has been renewed interest in all ancient pyramids and a renewed questioning of the explanations that have been given to us by the scientific establishment. The topsoil on top of the Bosnian pyramid carbon dates to 12,000 years ago. Other organic material on top of the pyramid, found by two Italian archaeologists, Dr. Ricardo Brett and Niccolo Bisconti, dates to 25,000 years ago. This suggests that there was an advanced civilization much older than 6,000 years - the age of the Sumerian - which, conventional thought tells us, is the oldest
civilization. (For videos on the Bosnian pyramid, click here: Bosnia Pyramid and here: Bosnia Pyramid 2)
In light of this recent discovery, I've decided to share an excerpt from my book, 'Why Is Lif
which synopsizes a great deal of info about the Great Pyramid in Egypt. This will appear in increments over the next several newsletters. Here is the second installment:
In the last newsletter we took a look at some of the awesome attributes of the Great Pyramid - the incredible magnitude and precision of this enigmatic structure. We also pointed out that some of the conventional explanations and theories surrounding its construction seem sadly lacking and maybe even purposefully deceptive. Here is another excerpt from my book, 'Why Is Life'.
A great deal of alternative research and postulation has been put forth in the past 100 years which attempts to explain
when, how and who built this amazing structure. In my opinion, most of these alternative explanations are more convincing than the conventional theories. Unfortunately, much of this work has been ignored by academia.
There is almost a religious fervor around the defense of the old Egyptology paradigms. Why do the 'experts' pretend to have the answers to the riddles of the Great Pyramid when it seems obvious to anyone who does even a little research in this area that there are huge pieces of the puzzle missing? We will take a quick look at some of this alternative information, but for those of you who find this subject as fascinating as I do, I recommend a deeper investigation into the work of the researchers mentioned in thi
chapter. I will try to present the various theories about the Great Pyramid by examining the questions: why, how, who and when.
In the last newsletter we addressed the question of why - the next big question is, how was the Great Pyramid built? Conventional Egyptology says that it was built in 20 years by 100,000 slaves. According to the calculations of a civil engineer named P. Garde-Hanson, for this to be true, 4,000 blocks per day or 6.67 blocks per minute would have been installed with perfect precision. That it was done using ropes, sleds, ramps, hammers and copper chisels adds to the incredulity of such a feat. Let's set aside this seemingly remote possibility and take a quick look at some of the more alternative ideas.
- In 1986, a chemist named Joseph Davidovits argued that this enormous structure could have been poured into place, using forms and geopolymers. A chemical analysis of the pyramid limestone showed that it was different than other types, containing a phosphate called brushite, which is not typically found in limestone.
- One notion is that the pyramid was built using an anti-gravity device or some methodology that defies gravity. There are several versions of this idea. Gordon Michael Scallion had psychic visions of dirigibles in the sky hauling stones with the assistance of men on the g
who were spinning slings with cups attached to the ends. These devices gave off a loud, high-pitched sound, which he claimed had some anti-gravitational capacity. An eccentric Latvian-American by the name of Ed Leedskalnin claimed that he knew the secret of creating anti-gravitational forces, which he used to move the huge stone blocks used to create his Coral Castle in Florida. He was very guarded about this knowledge, however, and in 1952 he died with it. Those who investigated his workshop after his death found no written information, but they found many magnetic devices. (If you are curious about the Coral Castle, a google search will yield much info - I have visited the site in Florida.)The concept of defying gravity may seem a bit far-fetched, but science admits that it still does not know what gravity actually is. A good deal of channeled information claims that UFO's do not use rocket technology, but rather, some form of anti-gravity technology.
- It is feasible that the pyramid stones (and other huge stones) were moved using some form of telekinesis. Some people feel that human psychic powers were much greater and more common back in matriarchal times when 'right-brain' consciousness predominated. Telekinesis is the ability to move objects using the power of the mind or will. This ability is very real and has been extensively tested in the lab in modern times by institutions such as the British Society for Psychical Research, and especially by Russian researchers. One Russian subject, Nelya Mikhailova, can move small objects at will under the strictest laboratory conditions.
- Christopher Dunn seems convinced that high tech power tools were used. He says that, to achieve the degree of accuracy seen in the Great Pyramid, one would need ultra-sonic cutting and drilling equipment, guided by computer. He examined blade and drill marks on pyramid stone and claims that it bears a close resemblance to the marks made by ultra-sonic tools. He believes it to have been impossible to make such marks using hand tools, even if steel and diamond cutters were available. If the Egyptians had power, it seems to me that we would have found some tool or piece of electrical cord or something. The only evidence is a wall carving at Dendera in the Temple of Hathor, which shows two Egyptians holding what looks like large light bulbs attached to cords and insulators. There are many other enigmas in ancient Egypt, other than the Great Pyramid, which seem to have been made with power tools. Thousands of la
bottles made of solid stone have been found, many of which are in the Cairo museum. The body of a typical bottle is hollow, round and squat, with a long, perfectly drilled out neck. How something like this could have been made from solid stone using hand tools completely defies explanation.At the Temple of Serapeum in Saqqara, there are narrow tunnels carved into solid bedrock, which contain 21 perfect granite boxes with lids, each of which weighs 100 tons! How were such things made and how were they placed in there when there is only room for a few bodies? Another compelling question - how were the many dark interiors in the pyramids and structures throughout Egypt lit? There are no soot marks, no evidence on the walls and ceilings that torches were used.
Hancock writes that, according to Jewish Talmudic/Midrashic sources, the Egyptians had a tool/device called 'the Shamir', which could cut even the hardest stone without heat or friction. It is said to have been stored in a lead basket wrapped in wool, implying that it may have been radioactive.
When it comes to ancient Egypt, there is certainly no shortage of mystery. While some of the theories of how the Great Pyramid was built may seem a little far-fetched, the conventional explanation seems equally incredible. In my opinion, we will never get to the bottom of these and other mysteries until we open our minds completely - until we realize that the typical 5-sensory way that we look at things will never give us a clear idea of the true nature of reality.
The next newsletter will continue to look at this enigma and will ask the question, "who built the Great Pyramid?"
