In spite of all the scientific advancement that man has made after several thousand years of civilization, the modern man is still unable to resolve the mystery of the pyramids. Many theories have been set in order to explain and interpret the great geometrical and architectural innovation used in the building of the pyramids. Some even believe that the Egyptian pyramids, especially the Great Pyramid, were built under divine instruction. Whatever theory there is, many share the view that the pyramid has a prophecy hidden in its geometrical structure, a prophecy which might be telling the future of the world. The Great Pyramid is the only wonder of the Ancient World that still stands today, with its prophecy that tells the future until the end of the world. In this pyramids research paper, we shed light on a variety of unique characteristics of this great innovation.
There were seven wonders of the Ancient World, but of them all, only the Great Pyramid still stands. The Great Pyramid is the oldest and best structure to ever exist on earth. Its architecture is seen as a miraculous work definitely accomplished by a civilization of a great development (Pahl, p.1). It is built by more than two million stones, the smallest of which weighs at least a ton, and the majority weighing two and half tons. Some of the stones even weigh as much as twenty tons (Pahl, p.1). The area on which the pyramid is built is 13 acres. Fascinatingly, the pyramid is not hollow inside like other pyramids in America, but rather, it is solid masonry, which shows how sophisticated its building had been (Pahl, p.1).
The Great Pyramid:
The Great Pyramid was built during the rule of the Fourth Dynasty, and it is 146m high. It was built of 2.3 million stones, each with an average weight of 2.5 metric tons (Peck, 2). Contemporary architects and major construction companies agree on one fact with respect to the Great Pyramid, namely that it cannot be built with any means of modern construction. This means that it might take the world several decades of technological progress before something close to the Great Pyramid can be built (Peck, p. 2). There are two major theories with respect to the construction of the Great Pyramid.
According to the first theory, the stones used in building the pyramid were floated into place with water locks, through the use of massive earthen causeways. This method is what the artists picturing the building of the pyramid think of. However, the accuracy of building and the massive size of work make this theory improbable (Hall, p.1).
The second theory, on the other hand, states that the blocks were being concrete blocks poured into place at the site. Evidently, this means the involvement of angels or alien power. The accuracy of building, the precision and the unbelievable art of construction make this theory acceptable to many. Besides, a lot of symbolism related to the pyramid make this theory interesting (Hall, p.1).
Many reasons make the second theory on the construction of the pyramid possible. First of all, according to astrological and geometrical studies, the Great Pyramid is placed almost exactly due north, south, east and west, which means that it is at the earth’s center. Today’s most accurate effort present in the Paris Observatory is six minutes of a degree off true north, whereas the Great Pyramid is only three minutes off (Hall, p.2).
In addition to this, the structure of the Great Pyramid signifies and symbolizes important historical events, including the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Several studies were made on the geometric construction of the Pyramid and a real time-scale has been detected, which supports the claim of the Pyramid’s prophecy (Jeffrey, p.5).
The first theory on this prophecy was presented in 1865 by Robert Menzies who believed that the passage system inside the Great Pyramid might be a chronological representation of the prophecy. This theory and many others that followed the same idea were based on the cultural symbol of the Pyramid. The Ancient Egyptian monarchs were not only kings and rulers; they were divine rulers and gods. The Ancient Egyptian civilization was highly spiritual, and therefore, the best way to understand the Great Pyramid is to look at it through the spiritual perspective (Jeffrey, 4).
Accordingly, the Ascending chamber of the Pyramid represents a spiritual upturn after an era of declining values. These declining values are represented by the Descending Passage. The movement upwards reflects a new injection of energy and the movement towards higher levels of consciousness and spirituality (Jeffrey, 6).
A variety of unique characteristics:
The Queen’s path, on the other hand, represents a middle way between the higher path and the path of damnation. It is probably chosen by those who accept a certain level of spirituality but do not follow the direct path towards higher levels of awareness.
Each Pyramid inch, as the studies reveal, is the unit of measurement used. Each Pyramid inch is equal to 1.001 British inch which is in turn equal to 500,000,000 part of the Earth’s polar diameter. This also shows the high degree of precision which Egyptian architects have achieved. Taking each Pyramid inch for a year, and measuring the distance in any direction from the Scored Lines in the Pyramid lead to the date of 2141 BC. Surprisingly, this date is also reached through astrological means, representing the starting date of the Great Pyramid (Hall, p.1).
Some startling results can be achieved by making a few calculations. For example, by counting 688 inches which is marked as a significant date, we can reach the year 1453 BC, and more precisely, the 30th of March. This date was the starting day of the Israeli Exodus out of Egypt and the receiving of Laws by Moses (Behrman, p.2).
Similarly, by measuring 1485 inches from the starting mark, we reach another significant mark which leads us to April 1st, 33 AD, believed to be the date on which Jesus Christ was Crucified. This mark here is accompanied with a sudden raising of the roof, which most probably refers to human enlightenment and the release of cosmic power which flowed from that event (Jeffrey, p.6).
By comparing the marked dates and the idea of assigning spiritual values to the different chambers, we reach another surprising finding. By measuring 2675 inches from the start of the Ascending Passage (1453 BC) down the Descending Passage, this would lead to the bottom of the Well-Shaft and the year 1223. The same date is reached in the Queen’s Passage. This is not a coincidence as it might seem to be. The significance is that a certain release of energy had taken place whereby the travelers of the Lower Passage were provided redemption and advancement (Jeffrey, p.6).
On the other hand, those in the Queen’s Passage suffered from a setback. The date 1223 itself, represents the period of influence of Roger Bacon, one of the most important scientists of his age who set the starting ideas of the car, aeroplane and steamship, and hence changing the world on every level. The spiritual interpretation is that those in the darkness of the Lower Passage were offered spiritual salvation with the new inventions and developments, whereas those in the Queen’s Passage were attracted more to the materialistic part of these developments (Jeffrey, p.6).
Other important dates marked on the Pyramid include World War I, World War II, the Atomic Age and many others. Yet, the Great Prophecy is related to the end of the world. According to the measurements made in the Great Pyramid, the date on which life would come to an end on earth should fall between 1953 and 2001. More precisely, this date is believed to be September 17, 2001 (Jeffrey, p.6).
Whether the GreaPyramid is a bible on stone or not remains a major controversy which might not be resolved until the marked dates in the future come. However, certain historical and biblical evidence tend to prove the theory that the Great Pyramid was built by or under the instruction of divine powers. It was during pharaoh Cheops reign that the Great Pyramid was built. Yet, Cheops was directed by shepherd prophets who received special calling and instruction from God. It is noticeable that the Ancient Egyptians had always worshipped several gods. Yet, during the thirty years in which the Great Pyramid was built, all the gods were denounced and the clergy abolished. A single god was worshipped during this period. Once the construction was finished, the Ancient Egyptians returns to worshipping their gods. Historical analysis concludes that Cheops was certainly working under the instruction of prophets or divine messengers (Pahl, p.2).
Will the world come to an end by the year 2001? Will the prophecy come true, or will the pyramids be mistaken for the first time, and when they are undergoing their most important test as divine symbols on earth?
