## The Great Pyramid of Giza and the secret message of the Pharaohs

The Great Pyramid is considered one of the greatest wonders of the Ancient World. This pyramid has always given rise to a lot of speculation and controversy. The reason? The multitude of impressive things that make this construction a genuine mystery of ancient times.

**The Great Pyramid of Giza – legends and mysteries**

Over the years, there have been several __mysteries__ and controversies about the Great Pyramid. In the 12th century, the Arabs believed that a naked woman, wearing wild boar fangs, was wandering the pyramid from the sunset until the morning. That was why no one had the courage to enter the pyramid at night.

Years went by and many other legends were born about this pyramid. It has been speculated that it was built for a specific purpose. And that is, the pyramid is actually an energetic pot hiding unknown forces. Other people have attributed a mystical-esoteric function to the pyramid, and that was to keep the Old Testament keys hidden. In this context, the role of this construction would have been to keep the history of humanity alive, from Adam and Eve to the present.

This long flight of fancy line was also fueled by the discovery, by the French archaeologist Bovis, of countless bodies of cats and small animals, right in the King’s Chamber. Interestingly, these bodies were mummified, that is, completely dry. The archaeologist has made a wooden model of the pyramid and has placed an animal corpse inside it. To his surprise, the corpse did not decompose, but it dried up. The French archaeologist realized it was a pyramid energy that made this possible.

**The messages of the Pharaohs**

One of the most important questions about the Great Pyramid is: where did the ancient Egyptians held so precise mathematical information from to build such a pyramid?

Nowadays there are a lot of assumptions. Herodotus himself wrote about the titanic work of the ancient Egyptians when the Great Pyramid was raised. We can accept this information, but the basic idea is how ancient architects knew the __secrets__ of mathematics so well. No plan of the pyramid has been discovered, and the notes about this gigantic project are almost nonexistent.

This mystery would have been elucidated if Alexander the Great wouldn’t have destroyed Heliopolis in the fourth century to build the capital of his own empire, Alexandria. The ancient texts claim that Heliopolis was the spiritual center of ancient Egypt. In 1225 BC, the city had an important library where no less than 13,000 people could work. It seems that most of these documents have been destroyed when Heliopolis was demolished, and the retained documents have been transferred to the famous __Library of Alexandria__, which was robbed and burned several times over several centuries. So the mystery of the Great Pyramid will never be elucidated.

**Two units of measurement to build the pyramid**

In 1838, British researcher John Greaves was the one who wide opened horizons about how the Great Pyramid was built. His elaborate study claims that the ancient Egyptians used two units of measurement, one of them profane, equivalent to 20.63 English inches (52.4 centimeters) and the other one sacred, equal to 25 inches (63.5 centimeters).

In 1798, young General Napoleon Bonaparte conducted a research mission to the Great Pyramid. He gathered no fewer than 35,000 soldiers and 175 scientists. It was then established that the pyramid has a height of 144 meters and the length of the edges of inclination of 184,722 meters. The last measurement vexed one of the French specialists, who knew that a Greek unit of measurement, the stadium, was equal to 185 or the sixth hundredth of a degree of latitude.

Calculating the latitude of the location of the pyramid, he divided the length of the degree of this latitude by 600 and obtained the result: 184,712 m, that is, the value calculated by him.

**Ancient mathematics, highly accurate**

The French specialist, based on Herodotus’ calculations, determined the value 0,4618 for an ell (cubit). The unit of measurement used to build the pyramid was disturbingly compatible with the contemporary Egyptian ell. Although this unit does not correspond to that proposed by Newton, this discovery pushed the specialists of those times into new studies.

Then it was the moment when it was said that the King’s Chamber and the uncovered sarcophagus weren’t meant to be a tomb but a calibration center. The sarcophagus has been interpreted as a volume and capacity measurement.

Starting from these data, as well as from other recently discovered data, we can say that the ancient Egyptians knew the __secrets__ of mathematics. For example, the perimeter of the pyramid base multiplied by 2 gives us the sum of 1842.9. This is considered a miniature copy of the equator. Moreover, we notice that the product of the double height of the pyramid and Pi is equal to the perimeter of its base. A similar ratio applies to the northern hemisphere of the Earth, that is, the radius of the Earth multiplied by 2 Pi gives us the length of the equator. Consequently, the Great Pyramid can be considered as a representation of the northern hemisphere.

We may ask why the equator is represented by a quadrilateral rather than a circle, but the answer also comes from the ancient scientists who argued that each face of the pyramid is the representation of each circle quarter of the northern hemisphere.

Agatharchides claimed that the length of one side of the pyramid coincides with the number 500, that is, an eighth of arc of equator’s degree, which means 86,400,000 cubits for the Earth’s circumference. As the day takes 86,400 seconds, and the Earth’s rotation speed in the equator’s area is 1000 geographic ells or cubits per second, then an ell corresponds to a thousandth of a second.

**The pyramid and Thuban (the Alpha Draconis star)**

Astronomical calculations have shown that at the time the pyramid was built, its 30th degree of latitude, the star of the Alpha Draconis was observed in a 26-degree and 17-second observation plan. Surprisingly, this is also the angle of inclination of the corridors inside the pyramid. These descending and ascending corridors were filled with water so that the Alpha Draconis would reflect on the surface of the water and be observed accurately from the ascending gallery.

It seems that the Great Pyramid was also fulfilling another function, the landmark for cadastral and topographical works. An Egyptian papyrus ranging from the 3rd century BC indicates the extent of the kingdom with an exact value of 831,240 meters. It is clear that the ancient Egyptians had very precise computational methods, similar to those of today.

However, the question remains unanswered, as no one can tell exactly where they had access to such information or how mathematics developed in the old Egyptian kingdom.
