8 Engineering Feats of the Great Pyramid at Giza

4 min readJul 28, 2018

The standard electric capacitor used in circuits stores potential energy in an electric field. I’m no engineer but I would hazard that the materials to make a crude one would have been available to ancient man if two premises hold true.

  1. That there was a transfer of technological know-how as researcher Graham Hancock asserts happened at places like Gobleki Teppi, Egypt and Sumeria.
  2. That the resonant electrostatic field in the ionosphere, studied by Nikola Tesla, stores an electrical charge and has always been here for us to use.

Warning! What follows now is my own conjecture on the matter but it’s rooted in available information, if there is a fault in my logic somewhere, please point it out.

I would think it safe to assume that if there was an earlier civilization before our recorded history who are not here now for some reason, they would have known how to use that resonant field in the ionosphere. To do so, they would have attained a level of technology far superior to our current understanding.

And if the goal of humanity has always been continuation of the species, then that earlier civilization would have also left clues behind referencing what can be attained within scientific study as a goal for us to work towards. It is my assertion that they did.

More and more, I’m leaning toward the notion that the Ark of the Covenant (and Ark of the Contract in Egyptian lore) are one and the same. That they were both ancient capacitors that could discharge a massive amount of energy drawn from the resonant electrostatic field. That various applications of such a device might have been used in ancient building techniques.

That perhaps even more than one were built, like the Ark of Gabriel; as mentioned in Islamic and Catholic teachings and said to have been given to the Prophet Mohamed by the archangel Gabriel as proof of his new covenant with God.

There is a lot of proof that people (or beings) much smarter than us once walked this Earth. The great awakening in consciousness happening right now is bringing together people and gently nudging us to look back through history at events that seem unrelated but likely point to the same source. How that source comes into focus for us individually is where the consciousness starts splitting off into factions of thought. The major ones being either God(s), angels, aliens or benevolent spirit beings.

Which one is actually the truth matters very little (for now). The effects on modern man are easy to see. It’s easy to surrender your sense of spirituality to hedonistic nihilism if you think life is nothing more than a happenstance gathering of random chemical processes. Sadly and often, those invested in such notions will opt to rather reject truths pointing to spirituality, than face the prospect that perhaps life has more meaning and the sanctity of humanism should be defended.

The mysteries around the pyramids point to the same spiritual awakening. Forgive the hyperbole but the word, “Pyramid” itself is almost synonymous with “mystery”. So much so that normal folk rarely bother to investigate the implications those mysteries imply.

Which, I think, is by design and why certain uncomfortable truths are kept just beyond the purview of the masses. Former US Secretary of State and four-star General, Colin Powell said in his memoirs; “If you control what people know, you control what they do.” Makes sense too- If we knew of a deeper meaning behind the construction and purpose of the pyramids, perhaps we would treat each other and ourselves differently to how we do so now.

There are eight major feats of engineering in building the pyramids that seem impossible for the ancient age without the help of technology from benevolent spirit beings, aliens or God.

1) The builders leveled the ground and cut a 6,000 hectare bedrock.

2) The builders carried 130 granite blocks over 500 hundred miles. Each block weighed between 12 and 70 tonnes. The blocks were hauled up to 210 feet which even today would be a challenge.

3) The great Pyramid has three chambers inside it. With acute precision, the builders cut a passage from the outside to the lowest chamber 300 feet long and 3 feet wide. Keeping that passage at the same angle along it’s length would have needed special tools.

4) The builders worked with more than two million pieces of stone of different sizes. Despite this, the upper chambers are perfectly level vertically and horizontally. The builders got it right to within a 50th of an inch.

5) The position of the great pyramid is precisely facing north to within 500ths of a degree. We only learned to do this in the 17th century and with nowhere near that level of precision.

6) The great pyramid actually has eights sides (a much harder build than four). With massive, different sized blocks forming the exterior — keeping the axis deviation down to a centimetre (and millimetres in some parts) to achieve this, would have been extremely difficult. Even with today’s technology and tools, that level of precision would be difficult to achieve.

7) The builders worked at a fast past. The consensus is that it took twenty years to build the great pyramid. With over two million blocks; if the workers worked twelve hour shifts, 365 days a year, they would have had to quarry, carve, carry and fit one block every two and half minutes.

8) The ancient Egyptians didn’t have wheels, iron or steel. They used copper chisels, stone mallets and ropes.

My hope is that when we do learn the truth (and I expect we will in this lifetime), the same sense of togetherness that is leading people on a spiritual journey into history, will also keep us from killing off the ones who got it wrong.
