Since the first forced entry into the Giza pyramids, mankind has attempted to rationalize the reason for their design. There is no evidence proving that kings were buried within, and every new discovery reaffirms this fact. This leaves us in a perplexed mental state, allowing ourselves to develop imaginative stories and assumptions. It has lead many to believe that the pyramids were constructed by multi-thousand slave laborers, onward to the modern concept of extraterrestrial assistance.
When will we stop and begin to think in a logical fashion? When will we begin to weigh the simple and basic facts within the confines of these majestic and mathematically simple ancient structures? What has curtailed us from understanding the messages left by the designers? What prevents us from realizing their intentions?
The answers have been known for many years, unfortunately we have listened with closed eyes, and were too stubborn to acknowledge the evidence presented.
The tallest pyramid in the world was dedicated to the king who reined during its construction, he being King Khufu from the fourth dynasty. It is not known with certainty when the first successful entry was accomplished, revealing several tunnels within this pyramid. However, these accurately cut and formed passages direct us to three various shaped rooms/chambers. The compartments have been named the “rock-cut” chamber, “Queen’s” chamber, and “King’s” chamber. But we must ask ourselves why any individual would apply these particular names to the chambers.
The only item discovered within all three chambers was a single granite stone, hollowed and shaped into a rectangular box and covered with a granite lid…this is a fact! There was never any evidence indicating a granite box being placed in the Queen’s chamber or the rock-cut chamber, yet we also assume these to be the second and third burial locations.
Unknown to us, the inventor of this simple and romantic story has successfully misdirected us for centuries. One singular stone formed into a rectangular shaped box has been assumed to represent a sarcophagus designed to entomb the deceased king, yet no bodily remains of kings, for this era, were ever discovered within any pyramid at Giza.
Although many have attempted to explain why there are three chambers with only one sarcophagus, the logic behind their reasoning is non-supportive. Their theory is most basic and simple to demonstrate, but is it a sensible explanation?
The rock-cut chamber was intended to be the original burial location for the king. Before completing the rock-cut chamber, the king decided to build a pyramid above ground to indicate his place of rest. This initial pyramid structure would measure approximately one-half the height of its present size having the new king’s chamber sealed within. The rock-cut chamber was no longer necessary; it was abandoned and left in rough format.
While the second design was under construction, the king decided to accommodate his beloved wife for her afterlife into the new world, therefore an additional chamber was required. The structure was modified once more and built to its present size with the third and highest chamber added…the new and exotic “King’s” chamber. This theory has become the most popular belief over the many others presented, but as mentioned above, it defies simple logic.
We are taught that the three large pyramids were built for individual kings during their reign; each having rock-cut passages, and each pyramid contained only one sarcophagus. If we recall, the rock-cut chamber was unnecessary, therefore we must ask why all pyramids on this site have similar passages and chambers cut into the bedrock? Why would following generations duplicate an “unwanted” feature in the other “yet-to-be-constructed” pyramids?
We assume the individual location for the base foundations were randomly selected by the king who ruled during their construction, but have we erred in our judgment?
Was the original site selected allowing a pre-engineered design to fit within the area having the correct topography to satisfy the material requirements for construction? Although these structures are named after King Khufu, his brother King Khafre and Khufu’s son King Menkura, the builders failed to leave written evidence indicating which pyramid is dedicated to what king. These basic issues are becoming the focal point of the Giza complex, directing us toward resolving the reason for their design.
The debate will continue, and sometime in our future, we will finally agree one way or the other to the question. “Was the pyramid complex at Giza, Egypt built using a pre-engineered single design concept?”
For many years, I have studied the theories offered by others, from ancient times to present, and these individuals were given the right to contribute their beliefs. If you, the reader, are a proponent of the king’s burial theory, may I ask for your time, patience, and consideration while reviewing what is about to transpire within the following texts?
There shall be knowledgeable evidence presented for the first time since the Giza complex was completed. The writings to follow will indicate the ancient builders having advanced in mathematics further than we assume possible. You will not question the singular design theory, but moreover, you will begin to realize and ask yourself who were these superior designers?
May this evidence guide us to a fuller understanding of the complexity locked within the greatest structures ever created by humankind…the pyramids at Giza, Egypt.
…Protected for eternity by their guardian…the Sphinx!
