When you think about Ancient Egypt, you immediately think about the pyramids. These monuments are fascinating and especially The Great Pyramid of Giza which is considered to be one of the seven Wonders of the World. The documentary film The ‘Revelation of the Pyramids’ (2010) brings to light some amazing facts about the pyramids and question the prevailing story of how they were built. The Great Pyramid was long said to be built as the tomb for Pharaoh Cheops but it is now said to have the purpose of a cenotaph. Building such a big monument with two million granite blocks in honor of a king is quite impressive, isn’t it ? What’s also interesting to note is that each block has a different shape and size which makes it much harder to assemble than if the blocks were all similar. However, the Great Pyramid was built in a very precise way, with perfect symmetries. Was it planned or just a result of chance ? The debate is open…

Remarkably Precise buildings
Egyptologists may have always put down the precise dimensions of the pyramids, temples, and other buildings to chance. If they regard the precision as being deliberate, that leads to questions needing to be answered. For instance, how could they build things so precisely?
Even now builders and stonemasons would found it difficult to build the pyramids and temples as precisely as the Egyptians did. With the limited technology then available the Great Pyramid was so well built. To work with and build two million blocks is a feat beyond compare. Yet Egyptology has not always considered the curious dimensions of the Great Pyramid. Those who have taken a note of the dimensions have spotted some interesting facts about the pyramids. The dimensions have links to the Golden Number, Pi, and the meter. That leads to asking the question of how the Ancient Egyptians knew of those values. It is apparent that they knew about the Golden Number and Pi even if we don’t know how. There is no way logically that they could have known about meters as the measure was only fixed in 1793. Yet it was fixed after studying cathedrals that were built to the same ratios as the pyramids.
The mysterious Great Pyramid
All of the dimensions and the design of the Great Pyramid point to it being more than the tomb for a king or a cenotaph. Time and time again when the dimensions are taken or analyzed, it comes back to the Golden Number and Pi. May be only a powerful pharaoh could have arranged for the building of the Great Pyramid over a period of 20 years. Yet it didn’t have to have been built so precisely. Without a doubt there was a point or reason for building it the way it was constructed. That was why the builders took the trouble to transport granite roughly 500 miles instead of using sandstone which was nearer to hand. If they wanted to send out a message, then using a stone that lasts for thousands of years makes perfect sense. Perhaps they left more information that was lost or destroyed by tomb robbers many centuries ago.
The builders of the Great Pyramid wanted future generations to understand that they knew things like the Golden Number, yet not to share how they knew it. The dimensions and why these were chosen indicate that the builders knew more about the Earth than previously thought. For instance, they seemed to have known that the Earth was a sphere. And it seems that the Great Pyramid and many other Ancient sacred monuments have been built and aligned on a great circle around the Earth. That suggests there was some shared knowledge, which has either been lost or kept secret. Perhaps all these civilizations stem from an older civilization that has disappeared without trace ?

The Message from the Great Pyramid : Were the pyramid builders trying to tell future generations anything?
For example, they could just have left the Great Pyramid to impress with its sheer size. Yet it is very close to the Sphinx and people have often wondered about the latter’s purpose. The Great Pyramid and the Sphinx are aligned to each other and together form part of a clock. That is one theory concerning the Sphinx acting as a time piece for the Earth’s cycle. Whilst the Sphinx is made of stone, it was still intended to last for at least 26,000 years, or the time it takes the Earth to complete a single cycle… Could it be a giant clock that could be used to check the position of the Earth in relation to the rest of the Universe ? Is there a special message that was left for us by the builders ? You decide…
