REVERSE SYSTEMS ENGINEERING THE GREAT PYRAMID OF KHUFU.
FRIDAY, 20 FEBRUARY 2009
In recent decades, interest in the Great Pyramid of Egypt has been revitalised, with new ideas and concepts appearing continually. Conspiracy theories suggest that “the authorities” are concealing some vital truths (aren’t they always?) We have had men from Mars, men from Atlantis, deluges in the desert, and the most bizarre methods for constructing the Great Pyramid, including the use of sonic energy, hydraulics, and casting stones in cement (sic!) Both transcendental numbers, π (PI) and Ø (PHI), have been discovered allegedly hidden in its dimensions...
Until recently, it was widely touted that professional Egyptologists knew little, and that the fourth dynasty pyramids had been built using slave labour, probably around 10,500BC. Recent finds of the tombs of the workers showed that the pyramids were, as the Egyptologists had said, built around 2,500BC, and that the labour force had been well fed and looked after, with sophisticated medical treatment. The conspiracy mongers slink off to dream up yet another money-spinning story-line with which to bamboozle a gullible public. Not that all the theories were nonsense.
The Great Pyramid certainly has some unusual features: to understand just how unusual, it is helpful to see how a more conventional pyramid would have been built...
Looking for an Explanation
The ancient pyramid architects conceived and constructed each pyramid as an integrated system; they saw the pyramid as a purposeful whole. So, the many different aspects peculiar to the Great Pyramid should correspond to a single story-line, a single explanation of the whole, rather than have each feature resolved by a separate explanation. Reverse systems engineering may then hold the keys to unlocking the mystery of the Great Pyramid. Techniques of reverse systems engineering include the following:
