Interesting Facts About The Pyramids

The Great Pyramid is the most remarkable building in existence on the face of our planet today. It was built with such precision that our current technology cannot replicate it. This pyramid is so precisely constructed that until recently (with the advent of laser measuring equipment) scientists were not able to discover some of its subtle symmetries (not to mention duplicate them). Among other aspects, there are also very exact geometric relationships between all the structures in the pyramid complex at Giza.

It is facts such as these that should raise questions as to the commonly accepted (and mostly mistaken) interpretations of its purpose, history and construction, as well as the history of our society (and especially the so-called 'pre-history' of mankind). There are many answers out there, all you have to do is look.

Here are some facts that have recently been re-discovered about this structure...

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.

Maybe that number arises naturally from the shape of a pyramid but I find it interesting that it has religious significance: wikipedia article (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/144000_(number))

I have a book entitled: "The Great Pyramid Decoded" by Peter Lemesurier. This gives all of the internal and external measurements of the Great Pyramid of Giza and explains the significance of them. I think it's one of the standard references in this field. I seem to remember David Wilcock mentioning it somewhere.

There are lots of people who have explained the purposes of the pyramids - Edgar Cayce, Drunvalo Melchizedeck, Nassim Haramein and many others. The information is all out there.

I saw a documentary about them once.
They sent a little robot camera up one of the small shafts that line up with the stars. About half way up it came across a small trapdoor with a handle on it....
I wonder who/what or how it is possible to open it???

That's right, they drilled a hole in it and poked a little camera through, they saw another door. then Awas made them stop.
Apparantly there is a lot of work going on in the great pyramid at the moment, they are drilling through blocks of stone trying to find secret chambers. I think Zahi Awas thinks Cheops is still in there somewhere.

The Secret Doors Inside the Great Pyramid

"The Great Pyramid of Khufu has always fascinated people because it is the only ancient wonder of the world that exists today. It is also possible people are fascinated because Khufu’s pyramid, especially the interior, is very complex. The modern entrance to the pyramid was created in the Ninth Century A.D. by el-Mamoun son of Haroun el-Rhasied. The true entrance is above this one. This passage goes down through the pyramid, and then connects to another corridor that ascends to the King’s and Queen’s Chambers. The original passage continues downwards into an unfinished chamber directly under the pyramid. Discussion about the purpose of these chambers and the complexity of the pyramid is varied and ongoing. ..."
