The Great Pyramid of Egypt is without doubt one of the most incredible ancient structures on the surface of the planet and rightly holds the name as one of the ancient wonders. It is an ancient monument that attracts millions of tourists and hundreds of researchers and scientists who study, analyze and explore it. Although most scholars agree that the Great Pyramid was built by ancient Egyptians sometime between 2589 and 2504 BC as a tomb, there are others who disagree with this theory, suggesting that the true purpose of the Great Pyramid is much more mysterious .
What we were told about Ancient Egypt and the Great Pyramid at school is very different from reality. True, there are dozens of incredible features about the Great Pyramid, which most of us have not suspected until now. Here we present details about the Great Pyramid of Egypt, which will undoubtedly change your view of this incredible ancient structure.
According to the analysis, it is believed that the Great Pyramid in Giza has about 2 300 000 stone blocks, which weigh from 2 to 30 tons each, and there are even some blocks that weigh more than 50 tons. The question remains, how the ancient man was able to extract, transport and install these incredible rocks to form the Great Pyramid of Giza. Interestingly, the outer mantle was made up of 144,000 casing stones, all highly polished and flat with an accuracy of 1/100 inch, about 100 inches thick and weighing approx. 15 tons each. As if this is not incredible, the cornerstones of the pyramid have a ball and socket design that can overcome thermal expansion and earthquakes.
This technology allowed the Great Pyramid of Giza to stay in place for thousands of years after its construction. Something that still causes a headache among experts is the solution used in the construction of the Great Pyramid. The solution used is of unknown origin (yes, no explanation). It was analyzed and its chemical composition is known, but it can not be reproduced. He is stronger than the stone and still holds today.
According to the study, the Great Pyramid was even more beautiful in the distant past, as it was originally covered with casing stones that were made of polished limestone. These stones in the body reflected the light of the sun and made the pyramid shine like a precious stone. They are no longer used when the Arabs used to build mosques after the earthquake in the XIV century, weakened many of them. It was estimated that the original pyramid with its stones in the hull will act like giant mirrors and reflect the light so strong that it will be seen from the moon as a bright star on the earth. Accordingly, the ancient Egyptians called the Great Pyramid Ikhet, which means “Glorious Light.” How these blocks were transported and collected in a pyramid remains a mystery.
Mathematical calculations are integrated into the Great Pyramid. The pyramid base covers 55,000 m2 (592,000 ft 2) on each side of more than 20,000 m2 (218,000 ft 2) in the area. The ancient builders of the Great Pyramid had a structure with incredible accuracy: they aligned the true north. The Great Pyramid is the most precisely aligned structure in existence and faces the true north with only 3 / 60th degree of error. The position of the North Pole moves with time, and the pyramid was accurately leveled at one time.
Even more interesting is that the Great Pyramid is at the center of the terrestrial mass of the Earth. The east / west parallel, crossing most of the land and the north / south meridian, crossing most of the land, intersects in two places on earth, one in the ocean and the other in the Great Pyramid. The weight of the pyramid is estimated at 5,955,000 tons. Multiply by 10 ^ 8 gives a reasonable estimate of the mass of the earth. Radius of the Sun: Two times along the perimeter of the bottom of the granite cone 10 ^ 8 is the average radius of the Sun. [270.45378502 inches of the pyramid * 10 ^ 8 = 427,316 miles]
But one of the most incredible features of the Great Pyramid at Giza, perhaps, is that it has eight sides instead of four, as everyone believes. The four sides of the pyramid are slightly concave, the only pyramid that was built in this way. Centers on four sides with an unusual degree of accuracy form only an 8-sided pyramid, this effect is not visible from the ground or from a distance, but only from the air, and then only under the right lighting conditions. This phenomenon can be detected only from the air at dawn and at the decline of the spring and autumn equinoxes, when the sun casts shadows on the pyramid.
