The Great Pyramid
IndexThe first trials to enter the pyramid
The first trials to enter the pyramid:
First of all, we suggest that you have a good look at the following image illustrating the plan of the great pyramid, that would help you understand more easily.
In 820 A.D the Caliph Al-Maamoon wanted to search for the so-called treasures inside the pyramid. Hence, he arranged a campaign that included engineers, builders, architects, and sculptures. When the campaign failed in finding the entrance of the pyramid, the engineers decided to dig in the stones which form the body of the pyramid. However, they failed because the hammers and chisels didn’t cause just a scratch in the stones. There fore, they resorted to heating one side of the pyramid’s stones until it become red. They then poured on it cold vinegar that caused a split in the stones. After doing this, they used the Al-Bash machine (a war machine used in demolishing walls). It succeeded in breaking the stones whose resistance was weak. All these attempts show the strength and solidity of the pyramid’s body.
The campaign has failed to find the secret passages of the pyramid, until one of the workers declared that he heard the sound of the falling of a big stone near the place they dug. The engineers have decided to continue their digging in the direction through which they heard the falling stone. This has led them to a passage more than three feet high and three feet wide. This passage was steep. The passage required an effort to ascend until they reached the pyramid’s original secret entrance. It’s height is about 49 feet above the pyramid’s base. Hence, the campaign continued its digging through the descending passage which ended by a pit full of dust and debris. They found, on the other side of the pit, a narrow underground passageway that extended horizontally and which led them, after 50 feet, to a white wall without paintings or drawings. Under the underground passageway, there was a well opening which was dug up to 30 feet and led to nothing. Therefore, the campaign decided to return to its position where the stone has fallen. They thought that the falling stone blocked the granite opening which lad to another passage ascending in the middle of the pyramid. They tried to dig in to the solid granite but they failed. Then tried to break the surrounding less solid limestone until they succeeded in reaching an ascending passage that has a low roof. So as to cross this passage, they crept on their hands and their knees 150 feet across the stones until they reached another passage that has the same low roof. At the end of the new passage, they found a room without any furniture. This room’s size is 18 cubic feet. They had thought that they would find the so-called treasure in this room.
When the members of the campaign didn’t find the treasure, they returned to the ascending passage once again. Then, when they lit their torches, they found a wide opening on its roof. When they climbed each other’s shoulders, they saw a high-roofed hall with a small width.
This hall extends by 157 feet which is the same inclination of the ascending passage. At the end of the hall, they reached a huge stone that led to a horizontal outdoor stone bench “Mastaba” the dimensions of which are 8 feet long 6 feet wide and its roof isn’t more than 3,5 feet high. This outdoor stone bench’s shape looked like the entrance which led to a small lobby. Across a small passage at the end of that lobby, El-Maamoon’s men found themselves inside a big room made of a polished red granite stone. The length of this room is 34 feet, its width is 17 feet and its height is 19 feet. The room is called now the king’s room.
The campaign reached for the treasures in this room, but they found nothing except a coffin made skillfully from the dark brown granite stone.
It has been said that El-Ma’amoon instigated one of the members of the campaign to put some golden pieces in one of the rooms so that the members of campaign might discover it. He has done so to compensate them for the efforts they exerted during their search which was fruitless.
The mysterious characteristics of the great pyramid:
The Mathematical Relations:
We had discovered some mathematical relations while reading some specialized books. Some of which are exaggerated. However, no one can prove whether the information written by the writer is right or wrong because of the complicated steps by which we can prove these strange relations. But, we found that the best and easiest way to prove the truth of these relations is:
If you take the circumference of the pyramid and divide it by two, then multiply it by the pyramid’s height, we will get the value Pie (22/7).
How to make a miniature of the pyramid:
To help the reader to make some of the following experiments at hone, we present an easy way to make a miniature of the Cheops’ pyramid with the same dimensions:
N. B.:The materials used in building the pyramid must be non- metallic because the non-metallic materials give a similar effect to that of the biggest pyramid’s materials.
These are some of the measures which make it easy for the reader to make a model.
Both sides ( each one’s length )
9 ⅜ inches
12 ⅝ inches
15 ¾ inches
18 ¾ inches
12 feet – 6 inches
9 feet – 5 inches

17 ¾ inches
8 feet – 11inches
The following are some experiments on the pyramid.
The pyramid’s experiments on plants:
In 1975, Jack Dayer had chosen 60 mongrel beans used in gardens (all beans are to be alike and the difference shall be little). Then he planted them together in one tray. After two days he took the planted beans without looking at them and put them in similar vessels. They are irrigated by limited quantities. The vessels took geometrical pyramids, equilateral prisms, and cuboids. He made five boxes from marked glass. The size of each box is 361,1 cubic inches. He then put in each box 3 vessels of beans. He used 15 other vessels that for comparison and which were not put inside the glass boxes.
All the plants were exposed to florescent light for 16 hours each day. In addition to the experimental beans and the compared beans, three other planted beans were put in each of the three geometrical shapes. Another fourth bean was put for comparison. These were put on scattered window sills. The glass boxes are welded together by the glue used in fish basins. The box should not be wholly welded so as to let the current of air get inside it. His experiment was made on the upper floor of a two-floor building made of concrete. The plants were grown between the twenty ninth of November and the ninth of December. Then the degree of the height and growth was measured, as well as the diameter of its stem. Dyre had found that the pyramids had grown faster than the others followed by the prism’s plants, then the cuboid’s plants and the comparison plants. Dyer said that the differences are very clear in the degree of the plant growing. This difference is very important from the statistical view. Dyre was keen on giving each plant an equal amount of light, heat, and air. He had found that the samples put on the window sills grew less because they were exposed only to the light of the sun in short periods in November and December. However, the pyramid’s plants grew quicker than any other plant. Dyre discovered that when he plucked out plants and weighed them while they are green, the pyramid’s plants were the heaviest. Moreover, when he weighed them after drying them, the pyramid’s plants were the lightest and the compared plants were the heaviest after drying.
The pyramid’s experimeon animals:
Many of these who are interested in making experiments on the pyramid as well as the scientists agreed on preferring tamed animato be kept beside or inside the pyramid. They are to be kept in their own houses. They preferred to put them in the North-East corner of the pyramid as well.
Experiments made on the pyramid as a remedy for injuries and headaches:
We present two experiments of some persons who said to have recovered by using miniatures of Cheops’ pyramid:
1) Tom Garrett said: I was injured in a house accident that led to the breaking of my little toe.
My toe was crammed in a chair’s leg. The toe was broken and became swollen. Hence, I went to the pyramid to decrease my pain. However, the pain increased while I was in the pyramid for 15 minutes. The pain kept on growing for other 10 minutes to decrease. When the pain stopped, I sat inside the pyramid for two hours, then I slept for a while and when I woke up, the swelling was clearly decreased. In the evening, I sat for another hour inside the pyramid before sleeping. In the morning, walking was normal with little fatigue.
2) He mentioned his last experience with the pyramid saying: “ I have had a headache because I stared at the sun all the afternoon while watching a football match. Therefore, I sat under the pyramid for sometime and noticed nothing unusual after this experience. When I was outside the pyramid, I was absent-minded because of the noise the children were making. After that, I discovered that those children were far from me by some buildings. It seemed to me that my hearing sense was affected by sitting under the pyramid. The headache also had gone. However, I have only noticed all these things some time after leaving the pyramid.
The experiments of the pyramid on food:
The two scientists shoal and Betit tell us about their experiments on how the p0yramid affects the milk. Shoal says: “ I filled two vessels, that have the same size and shape, with milk. Then, I put on them a creased paper to decrease the reach of bacteria to the milk while air is allowed to them. Then, I put one of the two vessels inside the pyramid and the other one outside it. After six days, I have found that the milk which has been inside the pyramid has turned into separated bodies taking the shape of layers consisting of sour and curdled milk and watery liquid. However, some rottenness as well as dissociation has been formed on the surface of the other vessel. By the days, the rottenness increased. After that, I left the soured milk which was outside the pyramid. I kept the milk which was inside the pyramid in its place. After six weeks, the milk turned into a firm fatty substance that gave the taste of yogurt without any effect of rottenness. The layers have become near each other to form one body without any change.
The pyramid keeps meat:
The two scientists Bill shoal and Aid Betit continue their experiments on solid and organic substances by saying: We have discovered that meat doesn’t putrefy but it loses its water very fast. It doesn’t have a bacteria activity too. After keeping the meat inside the pyramid for three weeks, it loses 60 % of its weight but it doesn’t go bad. As we desire to have an experiment, so as to compare it with different kinds of food, we prepared similar pyramids of cardboard. The size of each one’s base is nine cubic inches and ⅜ inch. The height of each one is six inches .We have made suitable ventilation inside each pyramid through making a rounded hole in each side of the four-sided pyramid near the top. Each one’s diameter is ¾ inch. Then, we put the samples in the king’s burial room and other similar samples on a table outside the pyramid.
The experiment samples were four eggs. Each one’s weight is more than 51 gm. Two shelled eggs were left, one inside the pyramid, and another outside it. The two other eggs were broken. One of them is left inside the pyramid and the other one is left outside it. There were other samples such as, two of calf fresh liver and two of fresh fish. We noticed that all the samples which were kept outside the pyramid have turned bad after a week. However, the samples inside the pyramid became slightly creased and lost weight. The following is a table that shows the results of the experiment.

Experiments on the water of the pyramid:
How to make the pyramid’s water:
The amount of water that will be put inside the pyramid to make the pyramid’s water depends on the size of air. We suggest that the pyramid should be comparatively big. To make one liter of the pyramid’s water you fill a bottle with water. Then, you put the bottle under the pyramid where the middle point of the bottle shall be at the same level of the king’s room i.e. ⅓ of the height from the base. After that, you leave the water in this position for 24 hours. Hence, the water will be ready for use. It is preferred to be put in a refrigerator so as to keep up its characteristics.
The benefits of the pyramid’s water:
Many people and scientists agreed on the benefits of the usage of the pyramid’s water in different fields such as:
Women’s use of it daily for washing their faces makes the skin more beautiful and fresh. Others use it to wash their hair to increase its brightness and softness. For those who have light hair, it makes it grow quickly. It is used also in wounds where it helps in fast and cleans healing. Shoal mentions that one of his friend’s daughters aged four years has hurt her hand which the door closed on. Hence, he put the hand of his friend’s daughter in the pyramid’s water. After a minute, the daughter stopped crying saying “This is better’’. He kept her hand in the pyramid’s water for 3 minutes. When she woke up the next day, she found the effects of the bruise have disappeared, the swelling has gone, and the wounds began to heal. After 2 days, there were no effects of the accident on the child’s hand.
Experiments of the pyramid’s effects on sleep:
It was mentioned that sleeping inside the pyramid or beside it or even under bed helps one to sleep quietly, wake up early, feel more active and have a clear mind. In this respect, we mention an experiment of lady Mathia who said: “I read in the Times Magazine that a famous actress used to put a pyramid under her bed to provide her with an additional energy. Hence, I put a pyramid, that I painted red, under my bed so as to be under my solar plait. This solar plait is the center of the nervous system which lies behind the stomach and the aorta.
On the following day, I felt an additional energy. I found that I slept 8 hours instead of the 5 hours that I normally sleep. One of my friends also mentioned that when she put the pyramid under the bed immediately under her head, she felt, on the following day, that her mind is clear and that she is more active.
We, also, mention that he who puts a pyramid under his seat, feels energy and clear mind. Moreover, If he is working, he concentrates on performing his work and does it more quickly.
One of the pyramid’s effects, also, is that if you put a safety razor, its sharpness increases as if it were new.
