Aspects of the Great Pyramid
For those familiar with the valid reconstruction of ancient times, the axis mundi, polar column or world or cosmic mountain was an actual, visible, twisting column of material pulled up from the earth and down from Mars connecting these two planets. It was compared to the umbilical cord connecting us to God, and at times looked like a staircase or ladder, or "a pillar of smoke by day and a pillar of fire by night". From the more habitable regions of the Northern Hemisphere, it generally looked like a stepped pyramid.
This appearance was no doubt the fundamental driving force for the building of these iconic monumental structures, but a massive pyramid with a cavity inside is the ideal construction to use as a shelter from the periodic rain of stones, fire and brimstone falling from the sky during the planetary encounters of the day. Probably the use as a burial tomb was an after thought.
The 144,000 polished casing stones were so white and reflective that they could be seen from the mountains of Israel hundreds of miles away. With a clear sky and bright sunlight reflected by this vast mirrored surface of 5-1/4 acres, the Pyramid would have been notable from the moon. In Revelation 14 prophecy, 144,000 is the number of special, clean, chaste people--12,000 from each of the 12 tribes of Israel--who are redeemed from the world at the end time, who are given a special song to sing, who "follow the Lamb wherever he goes", and thus to ever be next to God for all eternity. The future holy city of Jerusalem has walls of 144 cubits high.
The people of the area had viewed the Pyramid and its polished stones with awe for centuries. But when a 13th century earthquake loosened some of these casing stones, the Arabs recognized a great quarry of precut stones that could be used to finish off palaces and mosques. For instance, the casing stones were used to rebuild the new city of El Kaherah plus Cairo mosques and palaces, including the Mosque of Sultan Hasan.
Amazingly, the outside surface stones are cut within 0.01 (1/100th) inch of perfectly straight and at nearly perfect right angles for all six sides. And they were placed together with an intentional gap between them of 0.02 inch. Modern technology cannot place such 20-ton stones with greater accuracy than those in the Pyramid.
Even more amazing is that the 0.02-inch gap was designed to allow space for glue to seal and hold the stones together. A white cement that connected the casing stones and made them watertight is still intact and stronger than the blocks that it joins.
Whoever built the Pyramid used a technology that we still do not possess today to quarry, cut and dress, move, and cement these stones. If the Great Pyramid was built in about 15 years--one of the more noteworthy estimates--then about 370 generally huge stone blocks weighing in total about 1100 tons had to be moved and installed on average every day. To anybody familiar with large construction projects, this is mind-boggling and strongly urges the mind to reach for some kind of exotic ability or technology that made this possible. Examples would be: suspension of gravity, bicameral brain-mind control and coordination of the workers, alien assistance, etc.
Another surprising thing that is not well known is that in May 1837 a piece of crafted wrought iron plate was found inside where it could not have been added later. The archaeologist, Hill reported,
"This is to certify that the piece of iron found by me near the mouth of the air-passage, in the southern side of the Great Pyramid at Gizeh, on Friday, May 26th, was taken out by me from an inner joint, after having removed by blasting the two outer tiers of the stones of the present surface of the Pyramid; and that no joint or opening of any sort was connected with the above mentioned joint, by which the iron could have been placed in it after the original building of the Pyramid. I also shewed the exact spot to Mr Perring , on Saturday, June 24th."
Perring was a civil engineer who examined the discovery spot with Marsh, another civil engineer, and both came to the conclusion that the iron plate was inserted while the Great Pyramid was being constructed. Given that the tools to cut, dress and polish some of the stones must have had to be iron, this one find casts doubt upon the entire edifice of metallic "ages" and their dating.
Whoever built it also had some knowledge of the Earth, because it was built in the right spot--one of the few places that would support such a great weight. It is estimated that it has settled about 0.25 inches since it was built, while much less massive modern building settle inches in a matter of a decade or so. The builder also knew where the greatest land mass of the Earth was in both the North-South and East-West directions.
We know from geometry that there is a universal relationship between the diameter of a circle and its circumference. Consider this: The height of the Pyramid's apex is 5,812.98 inches, and each side is 9,131 inches from corner to corner (in a straight line). If the circumference of the Pyramid is divided by twice its height (the diameter of a circle is twice the radius), the result is 3.14159, which just happens to be pi. Incredibly, this calculation is accurate to six digits. So the Pyramid is a square circle, and thus pi was designed into it 4,000 to 5,000 years ago. Pi is demonstrated many times throughout the Pyramid.
Other numbers are also repeated throughout. Each of the Pyramids four walls, when measured as a straight line, are 9,131 inches, for a total of 36,524 inches. At first glance, this number may not seem significant, but move the decimal point over and you get 365.24. Modern science has shown us that the exact length of the solar year is 365.24 days.
All of the evidence in the Great Pyramid shows that about 4000 to 5000 years ago somebody knew a great deal about the Earth. But it gets better, much better: The average height of land above sea level (Miami being low and the Himalayas being high), as can be measured only by modern-day satellites and computers, happens to be 5,449 inches. That is the exact height of the Pyramid.
All four sides of the Pyramid are very slightly and evenly bowed in, or concave. This effect, which cannot be detected by looking at the Pyramid from the ground, was discovered around 1940 by a pilot taking aerial photos to check certain measurements. As measured by today's laser instruments, all of these perfectly cut and intentionally bowed stone blocks duplicate exactly the curvature of the earth. The radius of this bow is equal to the radius of the Earth. This radius of curvature is what Newton had long been seeking. Also, there is significant evidence that it was intended to be the prime meridian marker for the earth.
