The Mysteries of the Pyramids
The Great Pyramid of Giza has stunned the world since before we can remember. At one point or another you’ve probably heard about the Pyramid. Now you’ll notice that I’m referring to the Pyramids as “Pyramid”, because in my opinion the biggest Egyptian pyramid is the most mysterious of all. Instead of rambling, here you go. Below the great Bright Insight from YouTube will be laying out several of the Pyramids mysterious. Enjoy.
1. The 8 Sided Pyramid
Each side of the Great Pyramid is slightly concave. This was thought to help hold the original casing stones in place. This increases the difficulty of build greatly. It’s also thought that these indented sides worked as a type of shock or hinge to protect the structure against earthquakes. This obviously isn’t your typical pyramid structure. Building a pyramid is one thing, building a sophisticated pyramid is some else entirely.
2. The Forgotten Casing Stones
After its final construction, the Great Pyramid was completely covered is casing stones. Each side of the pyramid was flat, rather than having steps as we see it today. This guy get up close to some of the few remaining casing stones, the majority of these casing stones were lost to history.
3. Center of Land Mass
If you were to take all of the land on earth and bunch it up together (Kind of like Pangea), the Great Pyramids would be located directly at the center. What are the chances that one of the most mysterious and controversial structures we have ever discovered is located at the center of all land mass on Earth?
4. Aligned True North
The northern side of the pyramid is aligned almost perfectly with true north on a compass. Finding true north is the easy part, modern day engineers are challenged when trying to integrate this accurately into buildings. They believe that at one point it was even more accurate. This would’ve been planned out before the construction of the pyramid and was executed with a high degree of precision.
5. A Line of Megaliths
The Great Pyramids are included within a ring of significant Megalithic structures that wraps around the earth. This can be seen from the video below.
