As history attributes, the Great Pyramid, and the Sphinx to the period of the 4th dynasty. As we had a little introduction to such earlier, I will continue on from there.

Despite conflicting evidence and viewpoints over the years, the traditional view held by modern Egyptologists at large remains that the Great Sphinx was built in approximately 2500 BC by the pharaoh Khafra, The Great Sphinx is also attributed to this Pharaoh and this period of history.

First some stats, and interesting facts of the Great Pyramid.
Image

The exact number of stones was orginally estimated at 2,300,000 stone blocks weighing from 2-30 tons each with some weighing as much as 70 tons. Computer calculations indicate 590,712 stone blocks were used in its construction. It area covers 13.6 acres with each side greater than 5 acres in area.

There are supposedly 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 with nearly perfect right angles for all six sides. Computer calculations indicated 40,745 casing stones were used averaging 40 tons each before the face angle was cut.

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 casing stones weighing as much as 20 tons were placed with an accuracy of 5/1000ths of an inch, and an intentional gap of about 2/100ths of an inch for mortar.

The casing stones for the Great Pyramid were cut in quarries from Tura and Masara located on the east bank of the Nile on outskirts of Cairo.

The mortar used is of an unknown origin. It has been analyzed and it's 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 earthquakes. The four corner sockets are at different heights. The vertical distance between the highest and lowest is 17 inches. The reference point known as the "mean socket level", or base level, is generally used as the reference for height and perimeter measurements. The "sidereal socket level" is the mean of just the SW and SE socket heights.

The length of a base is 9131 PI from corner to corner in a straight line. The length of a base side at the base socket level is 9131 pyramid inches or 365.24 pyramid cubits. The length of a base side at sidereal socket level is 9131.4 pyramid inches or 365.256+ pyramid cubits. The length of the perimeter at the sidereal socket level is 36525.63629+ pyramid inches. 201 complete courses of masonry remain with remnants of 2 more at the summit.

The top surface is 5478 pyramid inches above the mean socket level. Another 335 pyramid inches higher is the geometric apex formed by the corner edges of the projected mantle. The 35th course of stones is roughly 50 inches tall, nearly twice the height of the previous courses. The height of the 35th course = 1162.6 PI from ground or the length of the Antechamber x 10.

Image

The capstone is thought to have been intact about 100 B.C. since no mention of its absence was recorded by the historian Diodorus Siculus. The capstone of the pyramid is thought to have always been absent.

The capstone is thought to have been an exact replica of the large pyramid on a scale of 1 to sqrt(Pi)/100. The ratio of any corresponding pyramid dimension over the capstone dimension, when multiplied by the square root of Piequals 100. The estimated height of the capstone is about 103.03+ pyramid inches and about 6-1/2 cubits on a side.

The height of the pyramid to the missing apex formed by extending the sides is 5813 PI. The perfect formula height of the pyramid including the missing apex is 5813.2355653763+ PI, calculated from perimeter of base (sidereal s ocket level) divided by 2 Pi.

The height to the missing apex is 5812.98 PI.
The height of the pyramid without the capstone is 5496 PI.
The four faces of the pyramid are slightly concave, the only pyramid to have been built this way.

The centers 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 conditions.

The 5 angles of the Great Pyramid are:
edge to edge of face at apex =76:17:13.2 (degrees - minutues - seconds),
edge to diagonal edge at apex = 96:3:0.0, dihedral or
face to face parallel to base = 112:25:39.4
edge to base = 41:59:50.5
face to base = 51:51:14.3.

The face to base angle is the angle of the casing stones.
The Great Pyramid is the only pyramid to have chambers above ground level.

The volume of the pyramid is:
V = 1/3 base area x height =161,559,817,000 cubic
PI = 10,339,828.3 cubic pyramid cubits
{(5813.2355653 PI)/3 * 9131 PI * 9131 PI}

The length of the Great Pyramid's corner edges are 8688.00 PI.
The slant face height of the Great Pyramid's sides are 7391.72 PI.
The area of the base covers 13.3 acres or 83,375,161 sq. PI.
The area of each face covers 10.8 acres or 67,493,782 sq PI.
The angle of the Descending Passage is 26 deg, 18 min, 9.5 sec or about 26.30 degrees.

The passages are straight to within 0.013 in. per 100 ft. The dimensions of the Descending Passage are 4535 PI in length, 41.524 PI in width, and 36.197 PI in height. [4:197]

The length of the Ascending passage from the junction of the Descending Passage to the Grand Gallery is 1543.46451 PI.

Of all the pyramids, only the Great Pyramid has "air shafts".

The King's Chamber has 2, about 5 inches in diameter which connect to the exterior.
The Queen's Chamber has 2 which stopped just short of the walls of the chamber and which do not penetrate completely to the exterior.
The cross section of these shafts are sometimes oval, sometimes domed, and sometimes rectangular.

There are no hieroglyphics or writings in the Great Pyramid other than those written later but not the pyramid builders. They are found in an upper relief chamber - some graphics on the wall of the Room of Chaos.

Each of the ceiling stones in the Grand Gallery were individually removable.
The Great Pyramid could have functioned as a stellar observatory during its construction.
There are 36 ceiling stones in the roof of the Grand Gallery.

Taking average earth density as 1.0, the average density of the core limestone blocks is 0.412, the limestone casing blocks is 0.367, the granite of the King's Chamber is 0.479.
The estimate for the average density of the pyramid as a whole, taking into account the different type and quantities of stone as well as the hollow chambers is 0.4078994+ times that of the average earth density (taken as 1.0)

ixty-five meters up the southern shaft of the Queen's Chamber is a miniature portcullis slab discovered by a robotic camera in 1993. Attached are two copper fittings, one broken. This area of the shaft is lined with Tura limestone, which is typically used in pyramids only for lining chambers.

In the King's Chamber all of the stone joints are very tight except in the lower eft-hand corner of the west wall. Here the joints are larger than normal and covered by mortar. This is a strong indication of an opening to another chamber or passage. The Egyptian government has refused requests for further exploration.

In 1986 a French team using microgravimeter equipment detected small hidden cavities behind the west wall of the horizontal passage to the Queen's Chamber. They were permitted to bore a 1" diameter hole and found a cavity filled with sand. They were not permitted to dig or tunnel for further investigation.

The cavities in the horizontal passage to the Queen's Chamber correspond to two floor stones in this passageway with joints perpendicular to the rest of the joints in the floor stones. This type of indicator can also be found at the junction of the descending and ascending passageways.

About 70 feet along the north side of the Great Pyramid from the northeast corner is a 4x10 ft stone sunk into the foundation at an angle. The joints are very precise and this is the only stone in the foundation perimeter not at a right angle to normal construction. It would have been covered by the mantle but is now accessible since the mantle is gone. It is very likely an entrance. No further investigation has been done.

It has long been believed that the Sphinx had subterranean tunnels leading to each of the three major pyramids. In October, 1994, a passage leading to a subterranean area beneath the Sphinx was re-discovered.

In 1987 a Japenese team used an electromagnetic wave method to search for cavities in the Great Pyramid. They identified a cavity under the horizontal passage to the Queen's Chamber about 1.5 meters beneath andextending for 2.5-3.0 meters in depth. They also identified a cavity behind the western part of the northern wall of the Queen's Chamber. They identified nocavities within the King's chamber, possibly due to the denser granite walls. Three potential cavities were identified in the area of the Sphinx.

The interior temperature at 62 degree Fahrenheit.
The pyramid is the only remaining structure of the 7 wonders of the ancient world.
The polished surfaces of the original mantle reflected heat, sunlight, and moonlight and was probably used as to aid Nile river navigation at night.

No mummy has ever been found in a pyramid in Egypt. Mummies have always come from mastabas or tombs in the Valley of the Kings.
The word Pharaoh is from the Hebrew interpretation of the Egyptian per aa, originally meaning the great house.
The word pyramid is composed of the Greek words pyra meaning fire, light, or visible, and the word midos meaning measures.

Between 1300-1700 A.D. mummy flesh was ground into powder and used in Europe as medicinal aids. Mummy powder has also been used for artist paints.
Mummy wrappings were at one time used to make paper and burned in fireplaces by poor Egyptians.
The pyramids of Giza are among the oldest man-made structures in existence.

Initially, after the 5 chambers above the King's Chamber were opened, those that entered the 2nd chamber were turned black by a powder which existed only in that chamber. It was analyzed and determined to be the dust from the cast off shells and skins of insects.

Most pyramids were accompanied by smaller satellite pyramids usually built to the south and east of the main pyramid. Some were tombs for queens and princesses. Most of the structures were mastabas built to entomb the pharaoh's family, members of royalty, and the priestly class. In nearly all of the pyramids and tombs, it was a general practice that the burial chamber was oriented slightly west of the north/south center line of the pyramid.

In ancient Egypt, Pharaoh's wives were never buried with them in pyramids or tombs, they were buried separately.

All that being said, some of the Alternative view I have seen, which seem to have some Credence. The possibility in which it was used for, and seemingly indicates that the structure was likely present much earlier than the 2500 bce mark.

Connections to Water, and the obvious importance of water to human existence, has lead some to believe there was / is a connection. With the discovery of the Tomb of the Birds, and the implications it posed, Being, that there is more to Giza than the Monuments we see. A Underground world exists there, and shortly after the announcement of the discovery, the tomb has been "sealed"

This coupled with the building style of the Sphinx enclosure leads some to speculate that these were long ago remains of a society lost to history.

R. A. Schwaller de Lubicz, a French amateur Egyptologist, first reported evidence of water erosion on the walls of the Sphinx Enclosure in the 1950s.

Image

Author John Anthony West investigated further and in 1989 sought the opinion of a geologist, Robert M. Schoch, associate professor of natural science at the College of General Studies, Boston University. In 1993 a NBC Special Documentary The Mystery of the Sphinx, hosted by Charlton Heston. Was aired, showcasing these findings, and during the process of the investigation done by West and Schoch. A seismograph was used in the Sphinx Enclosure, indicating a " Empty Space" on the data. which would support the belief that there indeed was a chamber beneath the Great Sphinx.

This Discovery could be seen as a fulfillment of a Edgar Cayce prophecy dealing with Atlantis and evidences that would be discovered and lead "us" to other discoveries that would lead to Atlantis.
Here is some of that information.
Edgar Cayce, the "sleeping prophet," who popularized the idea of a secret chamber associated with the Sphinx. According to Cayce, there is a "Hall of Records" with an entrance to be found between the paws of the Sphinx. In answer to the request, "Give in detail what the sealed room contains," Cayce answered:

A record of Atlantis from the beginning of those periods when the Spirit took form, or began the encasements in that land; and the developments of the peoples throughout their sojourn; together with the record of the first destruction, and the changes that took place in the land; with the record of the sojournings of the peoples and their varied activities in other lands, and a record of the meetings of all the nations or lands, for the activities in the destruction of Atlantis; and the building of the pyramid of initiation, together with whom, what, and where the opening of the records would come, that are as copies from the sunken Atlantis. For with the change, it [Atlantis] must rise again. In position, this lies -- as the sun rises from the waters -- as the line of the shadows (or light) falls between the paws of the Sphinx; that was set later as the sentinel or guard and which may not be entered from the connecting chambers from the Sphinx's right paw until the time has been fulfilled when the changes must be active in this sphere of man's experience. Then [it lies] between the Sphinx and the river. [378-16; Oct 29, 1933]

In the years to come, Cayce would speak more on the subject of the so-called Hall of Records:

It would be well if this entity were to seek either of the three phases of the ways and means in which those records of the activities of individuals were preserved -- the one in the Atlantean land, that sank, which will rise and is rising again; another in the place of the records that leadeth from the Sphinx to the hall of records, in the Egyptian land; and another in the Aryan or Yucatan land, where the temple there is overshadowing same. [2012-1; Sep 25, 1939]

... the entity joined with those who were active in putting the records in forms that were partially of the old characters of the ancient or early Egyptian, and part in the newer form of the Atlanteans. These may be found, especially when the house or tomb of records is opened, in a few years from now. [2537-1; Jul 17, 1941]

... [the entity] was among the first to set the records that are yet to be discovered or yet to be had of those activities in the Atlantean land, and for the preservation of data that is yet to be found from the chambers of the way between the Sphinx and the pyramid of records. [3575-2; Jan 20, 1944. Excerpts from Cayce, Edgar. On Atlantis. New York: Warner Books, 1968.]


With the Discovery of the seismograph, and subsequently the discovery of the Tomb of the Birds, and that it is a cave complex connecting the great monuments of Giza, we can safely assume cayce has been vindicated in his reading dealing with Giza, and the implications it now supports.

Image

Tho a number of failed attempts to access the chamber have been done in the past, An legends of the chamber have been throughout antiquity, until now we have only been able to spectulate.

Above is a site map, The Old Sphinx temple, and the Sphinx are of different styles of construction, Below is a pic of the Old Temple, Holding water.

now for some video aid. < Btw Dmtshaman, you are awesome for posting this here on DTV>
Please take the time to view this, because it indeed covers much of what i talk of here.






So soon after the spotlight on these discrepancies, the establishment sent our their "skeptics" to issues any number of debunking to marginalize the discovery.
And for the most part they have succeed.
Here is another post with recent happening in Giza being noticed. Which i assume, is powerful personal interest exploring the implications of the afore mentioned material.

Thanks kris75 and all the other DTVers who brought forth great info in dealing with this posting. :flop:

for now this post is concluded, a lot of information here to digest. hope you all take the time to read, watch, and imagine of what indeed it could all mean. I will continue this posting soon.

Without any intentions regarding Bul's posts, i just wanted to point you all to a great book called "History Of Egypt, Chaldæa, Syria, Babylonia, And Assyria" by Gaston Maspero, available at Gutenberg.org :

http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/28876

And his other major work "Manual of Egyptian Archaeology and Guide to the Study of Antiquities in Egypt"

By all means man, indeed share.
Even if it is contradictory to what I have posted, the only way to learn is by viewing multiple sources, and gauging what is or isn't.
An much of what I am now posting is considered alternative history. Tho regardless if main stream or alternative, I love reading this stuff too. So that invitation is open to all who have Information pertaining to the topic at hand.

Nonono... :mrgreen:

It is not contradictory at all.
First of all, it's your thread, and manners don't allow me to spoil it. Honestly. It's just a supplement, or better yet - a real mainstream. Maspero was a real scholar, and his shit is correct...
