Egyptian Pyramid


The pyramid is
estimated to have about 2,300,000 stone blocks weighing
from 2-30 Tons each with some weighing as much as 70

There is so much stone
mass in the pyramid that the interior temperature is
constant and equals the average temperature of the
earth, 20 Degrees Celsius (68 Degrees Fahrenheit).

Two types of limestone
were used for construction. A soft limestone either pure
or nummulitic was used for the bulk of the core blocks
and a hard white limestone for the mantle. Hard
limestone becomes more polished with age.

The base of the pyramid
covers 55,000m2 (592,000 ft2) with each side greater
than 20,000m2 (218,000 ft2) in area.

The outer mantle was
composed of 144,000 casing stones, all highly polished
and flat to an accuracy of 1/100th of an inch, about 100
inches thick and weighing about 15 tons each.

The average casing
stone on the lowest level was 5 ft. long by 5 ft. high
by 6 ft. deep and weighed 15 tons.

The mortar used is of
an unknown origin. It has been analyzed and its chemical
composition is known but it can't be reproduced. It is
stronger than the stone and still holding up today.

The cornerstone
foundations of the pyramid have ball and socket
construction capable of dealing with heat expansion and

There are no
hieroglyphics or writing in the Great Pyramid.

With the mantle in
place, the Great Pyramid could be seen from the
mountains in Israel and probably the moon as well.

Its polished surfaces
would have reflected light like a beacon.

Aligned True North: The
Great Pyramid is the most accurately aligned structure
in existence and faces true north with only 3/60th of a
degree of error. The position of the North Pole moves
over time and the pyramid was exactly aligned at one

Centre of Land Mass:
The Great Pyramid is located at the centre of the land
mass of the earth. The east/west parallel that crosses
the most land and the north/south meridian that crosses
the most land intersect in two places on the earth, one
in the ocean and the other at the Great Pyramid.

The relationship
between Pi (p) and Phi (F) is expressed in the
fundamental proportions of the Great Pyramid.

Numbers of relevance:

The length of a base is 9131 Pyramid Inches
from corner to corner in a straight line.
The length of a base side at the base socket
level is 9,131 Pyramid Inches or 365.24 Pyramid Cubits.
The length of a base side at sidereal socket
level is 9,131.4 Pyramid Inches or 365.256 Pyramid Cubits.
The length of the perimeter at the sidereal
socket level is 36,525.63629 Pyramid Inches.
The perfect formula height of the pyramid
including the missing apex is 5 813.2355653763 Pyramid
Inches, calculated from perimeter of base divided by 2
Pyramid Inches.
The height to the missing apex is 5,812.98
Pyramid Inches.
The volume of the pyramid is: V = 1/3 base area
x height = 161,559,817,000 cubic Pyramid Inches =
10,339,828.3 cubic Pyramid Cubits. [(5,813.2355653 Pyramid
Inches)/3 * 9 131 Pyramid Inches * 9 131 Pyramid Inches]

Precision of

The four faces of the
pyramid are slightly concave, the only pyramid to have
been built this way.

The centres of the four
sides are indented with an extraordinary degree of
precision forming the only 8 sided pyramid.

The effect is not
visible from the ground or from a distance but only from
the air, and then only under the proper lighting

The granite coffer in
the "King's Chamber" is too big to fit through the
passages and so it must have been put in place during

Microscopic analysis of
the coffer reveals that it was made with a fixed point
drill that used hard jewel bits and a drilling force of
2 tons.

The coffer was sawn out
of a block of solid granite. This would have required
bronze saws 8-9 ft. long set with teeth of sapphires.
Hollowing out of the interior would require tubular
drills of the same material applied with a tremendous
vertical force.

The Great Pyramid had a
swivel door entrance at one time. Swivel doors were
found in only two other pyramids: Khufu's father and
grandfather, Sneferu and Huni, respectively.

It is reported that
when the pyramid was first broken into that the swivel
door, weighing some 20 tons, was so well balanced that
it could be opened by pushing out from the inside with
only minimal force, but when closed, was so perfect a
fit that it could scarcely be detected and there was not
enough crack or crevice around the edges to gain a grasp
from the outside.

If the height of the
pyramid is taken as the radius of a circle, then the
circumference of this circle is the same as the
perimeter of the base. This provided the complimentary
squaring of a circle and circling of a square. The key
to this relationship is knowledge of the value of Pi and
designing the angle of the pyramid to be exactly 51
degrees, 51 minutes, and 14.3 seconds.

Embedded Constants:

Tropical Year or
Calendar Year: The length of a base side is 9,131
Pyramid Inches measured at the mean socket level, or
365.24 Pyramid Cubits, which is the number of days in a
year [9,131/25 = 365.24, accurate to 5 digits]. The
perimeter of the base divided by 100 = 365.24, the
number of days in a year. [9 131 Pyramid Inches * 4 /
100, accurate to 5 digits]

Tropical Year: The
length of the Antechamber used as the diameter of a
circle produces a circumference of 365.242 (accurate to
6 digits).

Tropical Year: The
ratio of the lengths of the Grand Gallery to the solid
diagonal of the King's Chamber times 100 equals the
number of days in a tropical year. [(1,881.5985600 /
51.516461) * 100 = 365.242200, accurate to 8 digits]

Sidereal Year: The
length of the antechamber of the King's Chamber times Pi
= length of a sidereal year [116.26471 Pyramid Inches *
3.14159 = 365.25636 days, accurate to 8 digits]

Sidereal Year: The
length of a base side at sidereal socket level is
365.256 Pyramid Cubits. [accurate to 6 digits]

Mean Distance to the
Sun: Half of the length of the diagonal of the base
times 10^6 = average distance to the sun

Mean Distance to Sun:
The height of the pyramid times 10^9 represents the mean
radius of the earth's orbit around the sun, or
Astronomical Unit (AU). [5,813.235565376 Pyramid Inches
x 10^9 = 91,848,816.9 miles]

Mean Distance to Moon:
The length of the Jubilee passage times 7 times 10^7 is
the mean distance to the moon. [215.973053 Pyramid
Inches * 7 * 10^7 = 1.5118e10 Pyramid Inches = 238,865

Sun's Radius: Twice the
perimeter of the bottom of the granite coffer times 10^8
is the sun's mean radius. [270.45378502 Pyramid Inches*
10^8 = 427,316 miles]

Earth's Polar Radius:
The Sacred Cubit times 10^7 = polar radius of the earth
(distance from North Pole to earth's centre) [25 Pyramid
Inches * 10^7 * (1.001081 in / 1 Pyramid Inches) * (1 ft
/ 12 in) * (1 mi/ 5280 ft) = 3,950 miles]

Earth's Polar Radius:
The Pyramid embodies a scale ratio of 1/43,200. The
height * 43200 = 3,938.685 miles, which is the polar
radius of the earth to within 11 mi.

Radius of the Earth:
The curvature designed into the faces of the pyramid
exactly matches the radius of the earth.

Circumference of the Earth: The Pyramid embodies a scale
ratio of 1/43,200. The perimeter of the base * 43,200 =
24,734.94 miles, which is within 170 miles of the
equatorial circumference of the earth.

Earth's Volume: The
product of the pyramid's volume and density times 10^15
equals the ratio of volume to density of the earth.
[10,339,823.3 cubic cubits * 0.4078994 * 10^15 =
4.21760772 x 10^21 cubic cubits = 259.93 x 10^9 cubic

Earth's Mass: Mass of
the pyramid = volume * density = 10,339,823.3 cubic
cubits * 0.4078994 earth density = 4,217,497. The mass
converted to pyramid tons = 4,217,607.72 * 1.25 =
5,272,010 pyramid tons. Since the mean density of the
earth was defined as 1.0, then the mass of the earth is
10^15 times the mass in pyramid tons = 5.272 x 10^21
pyramid tons = 5.99 x 10^24 Kg

Speed of Earth around
the Sun: The Pyramid Inch times 10^8 = the speed of the
earth around the sun, circa 2600 BCE

Mass of the Earth: The
weight of the pyramid is estimated at 5,955,000 tons.
Multiplied by 10^8 gives a reasonable estimate of the
earth's mass.

Average Land Height:
The average height of land above sea level for the earth
is 5,449 inches. This is also the height of the pyramid.

The Light Equation: The
height of the Great Pyramid, minus the height of the
capstone represents one millionth the time it takes
light to travel the mean radius of the earth's orbit
around the sun (1 astronomical unit) using 1 Pyramid
Inch equals 24 hours (mean solar day). [(5,813.2355653 -
103.0369176) /

10^6 = .0057101986+ days = 493.36116 seconds = 8
minutes, 13.36 seconds]

The Velocity of Light:
With distance of one A.U. known and the transit time of
light for this same distance the velocity of light can
be found. [91,848,816.9 miles / 493.36+ seconds =
186,169.5 miles/sec]

The Sun's Parallax: The
size of the earth as viewed from the Sun and expressed
as an angle and generally taken to be 1/2 the diameter
at the equator (Solar Equatorial Parallax) is 8.9008091
seconds of arc using 91848,817 miles as the mean
distance to the sun and 3,963.4914 miles as the
equatorial radius. The distance between the mean socket
level and the height of the leveled bedrock is 8.9008
Pyramid Inches.


The Descending Passage
pointed to the pole star Alpha Draconis, circa 2170-2144
BCE. This was the North Star at that point in time. No
other star has aligned with the passage since then.

The 344ft length of the
Descending Passage provides an angle of view of only +/-
1/3 of a degree. Alpha Draconis has not been in
alignment for thousands of years. The next alignment
will be with the North Star, Polaris, in about 2004 CE.
Polaris in Greek means "Satan".

The southern shaft in
the King's Chamber (45 deg, 00 min, 00 sec) pointed to
the star Al Nitak (Zeta Orionis) in the constellation
Orion, circa 2450 BCE The Orion constellation was
associated with the Egyptian god Osiris. No other star
aligned with this shaft during that Epoch.

The northern shaft in
the King's Chamber (32 deg, 28 min, 00 sec) pointed to
the star Alpha Draconis, circa 2450 BCE

The southern shaft in
the Queen's Chamber (39 deg, 30 min, 00 sec) pointed to
the star Sirius, circa 2450 BCE Sirius was associated
with the Egyptian goddess Isis and is also part of a
unique ceremony practiced by the African Dogon tribe.

The northern shaft in
the Queen's Chamber (39 deg, 00 min, 00 sec) pointed to
the star Ursa Minor, circa 2450 BCE

Pyramids mirror Orion Constellation: The pyramid
positions on the ground are a reflection of the
positions of the stars in the constellation Orion circa
10400BCE Five of the 7 brightest stars have pyramid
equivalents: The 3 great pyramids of Khufu, Khafra, and
Menkaura for the belt of Orion, the pyramid of Nebka at
Abu Rawash corresponds to the star Saiph, the pyramid at
Zawat al Aryan corresponds to the star Bellatrix. The
only two missing star positions are for Betelgeuse and

Marks Spring Equinox:
Due to the angle of the sides of the pyramid vs. its
latitude, it casts no shadow at noon during the spring

Precession of the
Equinoxes: The sum of the pyramid's two base diagonals
in Pyramid Inches = length of the Precession of the
Equinoxes (25,827 years)

Precession of the
Equinoxes: The distance from the ceiling of the King's
Chamber to the apex of the pyramid = 4,110.5 Pyramid
Inches. Which is the radius of a circle whose
circumference = the precession of the equinoxes.
[4,110.5 * 2 * Pyramid Inches = 25,827]

Precession of the
Equinoxes: The perimeter of the 35th course of blocks,
which is much thicker than any of the other courses,
gives a figure for the precession of the equinoxes.

Units of

The Pyramid Inch (PI) =
1.0011 present inches, and 1.0010846752 British Inches.

The Pyramid Cubit or
Sacred Cubit = 25 pyramid inches.
