The Egyptian pyramids, also known as the Giza Pyramid Complex, still remains one of the most popular tourist sites on earth. Every year, millions of visitors flock to gaze at their incredible stature and ponder on the ancient history that resides deep inside their tombs. But what exactly are the pyramids?
Well, the Great Pyramids are still hidden under a great big blanket of mystery that shrouds their historical truth. It’s that kind of great mystery where if you think too much about it, your brain starts to hurt with the overwhelming confusion and bewilderment.
The truth is, no accurate facts have actually been discovered surrounding the origin and purpose of the Pyramids, and even now in the 21st century, they’re still considered one of the great wonders of humanity. In fact, there are plenty of conspiracy theories that attempt to explain the truth. Here’s a quick look at the story of the pyramids and why they still remain so unbelievably fascinating.
Who built them?
There’s a whole debate that still goes on – was it Aliens or Egyptians? We’ll let you decide what you think about that one. History tells us that the Ancient Egyptians built the pyramids as burial places and monuments for Pharaohs – as early back as 2610 BC. That’s a whole world ago! However, you’ve probably also heard the theory that aliens built the pyramids and this is mostly because of the specific scientific mathematics of the pyramids geographic location and stature..
How were they built?
Aliens are often considered to have built the pyramids because The Great Pyramid of Giza points to the North magnetic alignment with exact precision. Scientists including Pseudoscientist Graham Hancock often advocate the theory of ancient-alien hybrids, disputing that no technology or machinery could have existed in these ancient times that had the ability to build the structure to this precision.
In addition to this, the exact coordinates are 29.9792458 N, which is exactly the same as the speed of light which travels at 299,792,458 meters per second? Coincidence or?
Were they built using levitation?
Another idea suggests that sound has a strange immense ability to levitate even the heaviest of objects when done correctly. And so some say the pyramids were built using supersonic levitation that somehow nullifies the power of gravity through condensing the vibrations of a sound field. Confused? Yes, us too.
Is Ancient Egypt older than we think?
The date in which the monument of The Great Sphinx was built is genuinely enigmatic. Some geologists argue that the erosion clearly visible on the nose of the Sphinx is not the work of sand or wind, but instead could only be the work of waves. If they are correct, then the Ancient Egyptians were in fact 695,500 years older than we’ve been told all this time. Why? Because the last time Giza was flooded below sea level was 700,000 years ago. Spooky!
It seems as though, after all this time, we can’t help but be fascinated by the pyramids. Who knew that something built so long ago would captivate our imagination even now? It’s no wonder so many vacationers flock to Egypt every year.
