History for GRANITE

Жыл бұрын

The third pyramid at Giza was decadently cased in beautiful Aswan granite. This monument, attributed to Menkaure, is a hidden gem that has been neglected by Egyptology. There is priceless evidence strewn about the pyramid which can further our understanding of ancient history.
Granite, the most durable and expensive construction material in antiquity, is one of the best ways to judge the values and practices of ancient cultures because of the high cost of use. Why has Egypt never fully excavated Menkaure's pyramid? What secrets might be found among the mountains of granite debris? Why are some stones dressed smoothly and others left rough?
This video explores the visible evidence left on the pyramid and offers up secrets that might be revealed with a thorough archaeological study of the entire site.

I noticed multiple granite blocks in the picture of exterior rubble that show some sort of partial cut groove on each one around the blocks' perimeters. Also several conical bore or very large drill holes evident on other blocks. Since there really isn't a compelling theory yet (plenty of non-compelling ones abound) regarding how the hardest stones were realistically quarried and dimensionally cut and carved those specific stones should definitely be studied.

Nice video. A few things occur to me: The colour red had solar associations in ancient Egypt; it would make sense for the pyramid to be painted red above the granite. The distinction between this and the other Giza pyramids could represent evolving theological ideas. The pyramid was unfinished at Menkaure's death. In the scramble to produced a usable structure in time for the burial the granite was left partially dressed and the mortuary temple was completed rapidly in brick. The mortuary cult did persist for centuries but its function was to provide offerings to sustain the dead king's spirit; they had no interest in improving the structure after the king was buried.

At the time Menkaure's pyramid was built there had been flash flooding that had already damaged the bottom of the other pyramids at Giza. The hill behind Menkaure's pyramid sloped up 35' in a short distance while the larger pyramids are on a less steep part of the plateau and had a gentler slope. Kheops Pyramid was already quite old and was showing damage at it's base from the water that would cascade down the sides of the pyramid. A retaining wall built of granite and a granite base was built around Menkaure's pyramid which formed a sealed retaining pool. Add to that the fact that the two pyramids using granite on the casing have the lowest subterranean chambers and we can clearly see that the reason for granite was as waterproofing to prevent seepage. This is further evidenced by the fact that the granite base of Menkaure's pyramid is sloped to a gated drain at the base of the pyramid. The retaining pool at the base of Menkaure's pyramid would have been magnificent when filled.

Water cascaded down the pyramids? ...Do you think the narrow shafts found from the center to the outside of the pyramids were for pumping water up? Some others have thought these shafts align with star constellations but Im not sure about that

@Uhtred I have not seen evidence of erosion in any small pyramid shaft, only on the floors of larger access shafts but that is a very intriguing theory. I have always felt that the pyramids hold a mechanical function other than the sacred geometrical function and the astrological function.

This is definitely my new favorite YT channel and the first one I’ve ever turned on notifications for new video uploads in 10 years! The way you explain particular scenarios and/or possibilities paints a perfect picture in my head and also helps clear up some of the outlandish (in my opinion) theory’s Dr. Hawass would have and has had me believing for 15+ years. Also, the idea that the nickname “Red Pyramid” was carried over to the slightly darker pyramid when the first one lost it’s hue makes perfect sense! You sir, are doing great things here and I thank you.

The finishings of the "granite" stones up to the 17th Course of the Pyramid discussed seems to be similar to what we see in many ancient sites in Central and South America, as well as in ancient Greece. There is much debate as to how the stone were cut, "molded", placed and finished in Latin American archeology circles. It would be an interesting study to see how similar or dissimilar the techniques were for producing and using this building material in ancient times across the different sites throughout the world. Thank you for bringing this up.

@Andrii Dubinin YES! We can see what our species does when left to its own devises. First the “gatherers,” through “unnatural selection” (though I think we’re part of nature) develop crops while the men hunt. They also discover a way to make tailored clothing, allowing the men to hunt further north. Grain made life so much easier, men developed plows, storage buildings, etc. Ziggurats come next, and with them the development of writing and the discovery of math. It’s all about having spare time. The Maya had calculated the earth year so precisely, only the atomic clock was better. You would enjoy Jared Diamond’s best seller, “Guns, Germs & Steel.”

New to this channel, but pretty impressed so far. Only up to the point where you asked the level of the change between granite and limestone. There's a distinctive grey appearance that I attributed to dust and dirt built up on the top of the casing stones as if the granite blocks were larger. It was very rewarding to see the shading stop where I was looking. Thank you very much for your approach at these marvels! Menkare's pyramid is so much less researched and even less publicized, but is none the less, a marvel in and unto itself! Look forward to many more videos, great work! 👍

It's quite impressive howa massive block of granite can be split with wedges and maybe some of that seeming precisionwork is just the result of a huge block being split and producing seperate blocks that align perfectly. Clearly there's way more to it than that but still find it highly unlikely that an ancient civilization would somehow dissapear almost without trace.

Great job on all of these. I wonder what the earliest use of the term "red" for this pyramid was? Is it possible that the word isn't referring to color, but is somehow related to the rusticated stonework instead? In much later Roman architecture (during the reign of Claudius and afterwards), rustication was considered a kind of fashion statement. Anyway, I really appreciate the depth of your research on the pyramids.

Rusticating refers to a rough unfinished surface as in “ rustic” meaning crude and uncultured or finished. It has nothing to do with “ rust” as in iron oxide.
Daniel Palmer
Daniel Palmer 2 ай бұрын
​@Gary Francis Indeed. Rusticated as opposed to ashlar masonry, as we see around 11:44 in the video. I had thought the ancient Egyptians used ashlar masonry on monumental buildings almost exclusively, but this video shows that is not the case. The online etymology dictionary tells us that 'rust' and 'rustic' have different origins. Rust comes from a Germanic root meaning 'red' but 'rustic' comes from a Latin root, 'rusticus', meaning 'pertaining to the country'. I'm wondering if somehow these terms got confused in the naming of the Red Pyramid. Romans might have referred to it as rusticated, but a nice barbarian way back there might have thought this meant red.

I think the casing stone was done top to bottom onto the "stepped" pyramid. The capstone is quite literally a key that holds the whole thing together. The weight of the capstone would keep the top layer of casing stone from tipping off the side of the step from it's "overhang". They would go layer by layer sliding them underneath the stones above it and they would all interlock helping the ones below them from toppling off the edge And I think every course/step was part of the external perimeter ramp system. Would be very easy to create a ramp from one course to the next without any scaffolding or anything, using sloped blocks with a ramp that run parallel with the courses. You would simply slide the block up this ramp to the next course, then it just need to be slid to the side onto the next course.

👍 castles in Europe had very tall stone dome ceilings that were created by first filling the area with dirt so the workers could simply stand & build the dome then remove the dirt instead of working on tall dangerous scaffolding. Pyramids might have had huge berms of dirt on the exterior higher with every course of stone which was then removed to reveal the finished pyramid.

I found and collected what I thought was a native American hammer stone due to its weight in the bottom of a stream bed in the Sanfrancisquito canyon near Newhall in southern California. It's composition is granite with quartz. I keep it on the table next to the chair I always sit in and shortly after I placed it there I noticed quartz anomalies in the surface; that had been exposed by tumbling in the river. What had been revealed are a series of numbers on several sides of the stone. The numbers are 2s and 3s that appear to be natural quartz formations. The numbers are visible in shaded natural light, but aren't visible in direct sunlight.

Thank you very much for your videos. I think a lidar survey of all the pyramids and surroundings would be necessary . I also think nobody has to move most of the blocks since it all could be reconstructed with proper software. Since it is a non intrusive technology it would be easier to get a permit from the authorities.

Sliding the soft stone down the granite into the sand would be the easiest way to get it down, the additional damage to the left of the breach could be from repeatedly using that as a staging area, it would crumble and break behind the granite from the grinding underfoot. Once the soft sheath was gone they could just chisel off the granite and let it fall

I find it interesting that the Osirion Temple still retains many of its “Boss Marks” on the inner perimeter walls. Fashioned very similar to Menkaure’s remaining marks. The Osirion’s definitely appear to be a finished product even though they could have removed the marks completely as some of the blocks have smooth processed surfaces. Interestingly enough the Valley Temple has none of these Boss Marks on any of its granite walls, all of them are smooth and processed like the entrance to Menkaure’s pyramid although the builders chose to go with a polygonal construction technique.

What I find fascinating is that this same exact masonry style is mirrored in Peru...the odd polygonal stacking/faceting as if they were squished together, extremely precise joinery between each stone, the pillow look they have before being dressed flat, the "scoop" marks on partially dressed stone faces, the nubs in seemingly random places, they both match up to the point that you could take a picture of either without context and an archaeologist wouldn't be able to tell you whether it was in Peru or Egypt. That same style is also found at sites on Easter Island and Lebanon as well.

A very good point Alex! It's clear that in some instances, the intact "bosses" clearly didn't bother the "client" at all. Whatever our modern conception of a finished dressing is, theirs was somehow different. Given the millimeter precision used throughout all of these structures where necessary, it is clear that the material's physical properties were no hindrance to doing what was deemed necessary and important. They must have known that these buildings would last forever. Leaving such imperfections for all eternity was no oversight, surely?

I suspect the choice to use granite was a decision meant to make it harder to plunder the pyramid. It is a much harder stone. That's why the color didn't match all the time. Because the appearance wasn't the main objective. Plus, the base bares the load of the rest on top, meaning the harder stone would be beneficial to the structure in general. The limestone weighs less, and makes a lot of sense to put on top.
SnowTiger45 7 ай бұрын
Taking a close look at the faces shown when counting the steps, it appears to me that the granite could easily have easily gone 2/3rds the way to the top. I didn't count the steps but I'd estimate it by scale as being 32 steps rather than only 16. At or around the 32nd step, there is a very similar if not identical change in that second section or third of the pyramid. The backing stones for the top third are completely different looking and more ruggedly cut (less accurately) than those of the bottom 2/3rds. This would easily account for the name "the Red Pyramid" that you refer to. Finally, I'd just like to say that while there is still much to be learned and confirmed from the Egyptian era, I think the method and techniques of construction were recently well laid out by an engineer who had very detailed explanation for many of the architectural aspects found in each of the 3 pyramids. His theory is the most plausible I've seen or heard yet. That said, I wish I could easily find the video reference to include here. And btw - the so-called "white limestone" is or was actually MARBLE. This is a well established fact.

The casing stone that is in place strongly reminds me of Machu Picchu and many other sites, even in Europe. The same basic building techniques were used on the first 16 courses that might have been earlier work, later continued using the different stone. This occurs elsewhere as well. One would have to be there to examine it properly. We do not know what technology was used to make the facing stone as it is. It was not done by chisels.

Using lighter materials above the 16th course may be an evolution of construction after lessons of the bent pyramid. The smooth casing stones near the entrance looks like a demonstration of ability to restore the pyramid that never went past the demonstration phase. The nobs on the upper 2 courses of this 'demonstration' indicate these tradesmen were of South American origin. (The nobs were used as leverage points to move the stone using wooden poles)(imagine 2 lines of men, each with a small rock and wood pole. They place thier rock near a nob, and with 3 others, lever the casing stone a few inches towards destination. After a few metres, hand over to next 4 men)

Good video and nice work. My own opinion is what you call a levelling knockoff, could not be used be used for levering as the ramps are not suitable for that, as they would simply slip off under any real load. For the antechamber in the great pyramid, I would say it is a keystone, with the only hieroglyph necessary to understand Giza. A Double Rainbow. That double rainbow is what explains the 8 sided pyramids, the 1/4th granite level of Menkaure, the 1/5th recess level of Khufu, the Satellite pyramids height and the Colour red of the red Pyramid and the Dimensions of those pyramids. The most obvious thing is two sets of 3 satellite pyramids, where the height of the Khufu satellites also indicate a height that is 1/5th of the Khufu pyramid with its Gradient of 4:Pi. That 4:Pi relationship indicates a squared circle in three dimensionsal space. The next is the 4:3 gradient of Chephrens pyramid to show back to back 3:4:5 triangles. The significance of this is that there is a geometrical anomaly with the secondary rainbow. Only when using the refractive index of square root 9/5th, 3/4th of a perfect square of light is created within the spherical raindrops and if the sun is on the horizon at dawn/dusk on the equinoxes, a rainbow opposite would form a perfect semicircle (with no tilt) and the elevation of that secondary rainbows 'blue' colour would be a perfect 3:4:5 triangle, with the square in the raindrop having a 1:2 elevation tilt. The dawn elevation of a 4:Pi pyramid would require a refractive index of app. 1.336691 for the midface for that secondary rainbow and require a wavelength through water with the colour Green at 0C. This secondary elevation would be 51.853548, but the same RI also dictates the Primary elevation of 41.544383. This would be the elevation at the corners, the result of which would be an 8 sided pyramid as they would be dictated by 1 shared RI but two seperate phenomena elevations (primary and secondary rainbow). For the pyramid of Menkaure, this seems to indicate a technical problem with the relationship of primary and secondary elevations used for 8 sided pyramids. Once you go below an RI of 1.335587, the 8 sided pyramid should actually become convex rather than concave. However, if you wanted to focus light, you would need it concave. Regardless, an RI of 1.333660 would give you a midface elevation of 51.037357 and this is Red light through water at 0C. Hence it is literally telling you it is a red colour pyramid because the rainbow spectrum colour is red for that RI. From Petries dimensions of the sockets core and casing recessed into those sockets (meaning the socket dimensions were intended to be as they are), the perimeters would be 36,000 anglo (Core footprint) sumerian inches as defined by Eratosthenes (7.2 degree Syene to Alexandria with 5000 stade of 300 cubits of 21 inch as the length) with an Earth of 1,555,200,000". This is a parallel with the length of Egypt being 5000 stade of 300 cubit of 21 romano egyptian inches as 6+1 degrees for upper and lower egypt, terminating at acos 6/7th degrees north to give an earth of 1,620,000,000". The socket perimeter being 36,500" to signify the relationship of the Egyptian primordial year and sothic calendars as 360+5 epagomenal days at the top of the year. The extended casing down to that floor of the sockets, would then become 36460" anglo sumerian inches given a consistant offset within the socket corners to the floor. As The geodetic greek Earth was 1,555,200,000" this gives us metrological scale ratios of 24:25 35:36 and 864:875:900. 1,575,000,000 / 43,200 = 36458.3' and 1,555,200,000 / 43,200 = 36,000". Hence we are showing 36000" anglo sumerian for the core and 36000 geodetic greek for the casing on socket floor. Using these dimensions for the aformention 4:Pi pyramid, would result in a pyramid with a 1/5th scale recess, that is commensurate with the height of its satellite pyramids as if to be surrogates for 3/4th of the recessed sides of a square. Applying that same principle using 36000 geodetic greek inch for the corners of a pyramid and an internal 12x12 grid (3:4:5 with 3 base) for recessed faces and the RI of square root 9/5th, would mean that the face to face distance would be 4236.923" x 2 = 8473.846 anglo sumerian and this is the side length of the Pyramid of Chephren. This gives satellite sides of 1412" which is commensurate with the satellites next to Menkaures pyramid. It would be 1/6th of the scale of the face grid it sits upon rather than 1/6th scale by the corners. As for Menkaures dimensions, along with the 360+5 day calender theme used for Khufu and Chephren, came 12 synodic months and 13 sidereal phases, where this pyramid is less than half scale of the other two pyramid. Hence 4500" x 12/13th = 4153.846 anglo sumerian. This is necessary to define the cubits of the Giza plateau. 4320 = 208 x 270/13 and 270/13 = 20.769" Major Cubit Where Mankaure side becomes exactly 200 major cubits and Chephren becomes 408 major cubits and G1 core is 433.333 major cubits. Yet Khufu casing is nominally described as 440 cubit base and 280 cubit height using 22/7 as Pi. But 433.33 Major cuits x sqrt (66/65) = 436.653 Minor cubits and... 436.653 Major cubits x (sqrt (66/65)) = 440 Minor cubits Hence 270/13 x sqrt(65/66) x 440 = 9068.966" anglo sumerian (Casing of Khufu at Ground/Paving level) So the reason that Menkaures causeway exists is to indicate the equinoxes and the reason the square foot prints along with the cardinal directions exists, is to indicate sunirse/sunset on the equinoxes and this is required to give perfect Rainbow elevation semicircles on the east and/or west horizon. Hence the Hieroglyphic 3:5:5:8 Seal on the granite leaf that is the key to the cypher of the pyramids. An antechamber whose wainscote shows 5x5 remen diagonal royal cubits has a circle with perimeter 360 geodetic greek inch (hence D'Vinci 25/8th Pi Vitruviam Man), that is attached to the kings chamber that encases a perfect 3:4:5 triangle that also defines the Geometry of Vitruvian Man (3:4:5 feet) as Megalthic Egg shaped stone circles (3:4:5 megalithic yards). Where the half armbar at head height is 1 megalthic yard of square root 8 feet at 24:25th scale (hence 10x10x10 pints and 5x5x5 gallons), where the megalthic rod of 2.5 yards was 4 remen diagonal royal cubits.

Menkari's granite casing stones would have been the easiest to plunder. Yet, they were left scattered about at the base of the pyramid. The two large pyramids had their casing stones essentially entirely repurposed elsewhere which would have been a much harder and complex project. Is there evidence of damage from this removal? I wish someone would investigate what happened to the thousands of missing casing stones from the Khufu and Khafre pyramids.

In your first video (The Great Pyramid reveals how it was built!), I was fascinated by the angle at which the stones were placed at the top of the pyramid. Is it a random choice of angle or can there be some connection for example with the following? 1)Near the surface of the Earth, its magnetic field can be closely approximated by the field of a magnetic dipole positioned at the center of the Earth and tilted at an angle of about 11° with respect to the rotational axis of the Earth. 2)In fluid dynamics angles between 10-15 degrees plays important role. (For example - The angle between the chord line and the flight direction is called the angle of attack and has a large effect on the lift generated by a wing.The magnitude of the lift generated by an object depends on the shape of the object and how it moves through the air. For thin airfoils, the lift is directly proportional to the angle of attack for small angles (within +/- 10 degrees). For higher angles, however, the dependence is quite complex. ...And so on...) Granite is one of the best stone resonators (contains a lot of silicon). Sound waves are longitudinal pressure waves. Electricity and magnetism consist of transverse electromagnetic waves and longitudinal pressure waves (this form of wave in electricity came from Tesla, and since then from many others, Eric Dollard, Prof. K. Meyl, ...). We use a transverse form of electromagnetic waves in the sockets. Longitudinal electric waves have completely different characteristics and properties. We can talk about them as "sound" waves. We can approach electricity (magnetism) and understanding how it works in terms of fluid dynamics and acoustics !! Philip S. Callahan, for example, writes about granite, basalt, limestone and other stones (towers in Ireland, pyramids and ancient stone monuments) and their impact on the environment, health, crop harvesting and their properties (including electrical and magnetic, paramagnetic vs. diamagnetic). It's a great read with lots of information - books like Nature's Silent Music; Paramagnetism: Rediscovering Nature's Secret Force of Growth; Ancient Mysteries, Modern Visions: The Magnetic Life of Agriculture. Silicon is very good dielectrics in capacitors. Silicon (piezoelectric) was used in radios because of its resonant and oscillating properties, ... From the acoustic point of view, granite and limestone can be seen as opposites (granite - tuning fork, limestone rather insulator), from a magnetic point of view also (paramagnetic granite, limestone rather diamagnetic), ... As for the color of the casings stones (white, red, ..): Zebras have black and white stripes also because the differences between the colors (they heat up differently) create micro vortices of air flow, which cool the zebras by 3 degrees Celsius. Granite heats up under the sun's rays faster than white limestone. Any form of energy arises only where a difference!! has been made before !! (in pressure, color, shape, speed, weight, material, ...) For example, sometimes they needed the granite and limestone to be heated up at the same or similar speed, degree (by a certain temperature difference, so they chosed red color on limestone instead of black), and other times they needed to create some form of energy (interaction) and use white limestone. I don't know what the pyramids were built for, maybe they had more functions, different functions. If you look at things from an acoustic point of view (with the help of longitudinal pressure waves you can heal or increase the crop or turn on the lights or communicate or ... depending on what you need, you build the device accordingly), then the pyramids are resonators, granite corridors can be like vocal cords (one of the acoustically best concert halls in the world is in Japan - Tokyo Opera City Concert Hall, which is in the shape of the Grand Gallery in the Great Pyramid in Giza). I look at ancient stone monuments (pyramids, Göbekli Tepe, Stonehenge, Carnac in Brittany, ..) as resonators, which could also act as calendars, but could have other functions than just religious. In this case, it is important how the stones are distributed in the space and what stone they are made of. If I use an analogy with tuning forks. If I sound a tuning fork that has a tone of C, then everything else in the area with a given tone C or its harmonics will sound (the smaller the stone, the higher the harmonics and vice versa). Everything is based on relationships!! From this point of view, IF!! (for example) the position of the three largest pyramids of the Giza pyramid complex imitates Orion's Belt then I would not be surprised if they would generate similar energies, waves like the stars together in Orions Belt and only with that difference that these waves are a given number of octaves higher than in the universe (patterns like in cymatics!). What purpose would this serve is a question. 14:22 and 14:12 These shapes are very puzzling. Why are these "levering" shapes only on some stones, often on smaller than far larger ones, where they would rather be expected? It is evident that they were able to smooth the stones into any precise shape. So why didn't they completely remove these levering shapes when they could? Why only partially? They occur all over the world (South America, Asia). Why are they in one line at 14:12? Why are granite stones unsmoothed? What, then, are their acoustic properties, what is their wind distribution, heat distribution? Is it like shark skin? It puts less resistance in the water. Why was the granite "untreated" but the limestone was smooth? Why were "untreated" stones only to a quarter of height of the pyramid? For example, how high does the hot air ripple above the desert?

For dressing the casing stones, using an oxalic acid mixture to cause chelation to occur softening the stones, making it possible to roll them out with a rolling pin, like a sheet of cookie dough. It’s possible the people of the time either ran out of the mixture during the construction of this pyramid, causing them to switch to limestone (a stone that can be broken in sheets), or they found unfinished pyramids from a previous civilization (think like, Gobekli Tepe era) and decided to finish them with a material they knew how to work with. That would also explain the randomness of having smoke granite casing stones and some limestone casing stones. Sure, the theories falls apart if you look at the carbon dating, but that means you think Hawass is correct, and that’s not a very intellectual stance to take. I’m pretty confident the lower stones would test much older than the upper ones.

In addition the surfice is much higher. It looks like the stones were sanded or kind of tool it machine was used and then stopped. I've never seen this before.

Those "bosses" or protruding nubs on these blocks are common features on most Megaliths all over our planet. It is obvious that they were not for carrying the stones but were what is left of attachment points to a fixture in the scanning and shaping of the stones. It is so difficult for scientists to make the leap of imagination necessary in order to see what is going on here per the construction of the Megaliths.

It would not have been ‘easy’ to dress the granite stones by his cult. One can imagine that once a pharaoh was entombed, finding the funding to maintain their tomb would have been increasingly difficult with each passing year, given that there were always NEW tombs being added to the list of sites. Moreover, Casing stones that were dressed, were either placed as the pyramid rose, or after the core was finished, but then dressed from the top down as the stepped rough cut stones would have been the foundation for the needed scaffolding for workers facing the sides. This is the most efficient way to do it and you can bet that generations of pyramid building streamlined their methods to those that were easier to perform. My guess would be that the upper tura stones were ALSO not dressed like the granite ones, and painted to make the pyramid look uniform in color and finish. This would almost certainly have been an issue of fund’s drying up, or running out of time. That is, likely the original plan was to make a pyramid that was noticeably smaller than the other two, but make it distinctive in its finish- that granite was more of an upscale look than limestone. The decision to leave the granite rougher on the exterior may have been original- part of its distinctive look… or it well may have been that they ran out of funding or time, having only laid 16 courses of granite, and so decided to opt for the much cheaper and faster painted Tura at a height folks were unlikely to get a close look at. The decision to not face the stones may also have been part of this cost issue. It would make no sense to leave the granite rough, and dress the tura smooth if you were gonna paint it to have it blend in. So I think the evidence suggests the Tura was left rough and painted as a cost/time saving solution. Which means that finsihing the entire exterior would have been a huge cost his cult could likely not have entertained. This reminds me of a visit to Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas. In the Forum shopping area, I noticed that all the marble walls were real marble from around 2.5 feet to 5.5 feet above the floor. Below that and above that, the ‘marble’ was color matched plastic. That is, they used real marble only in the narrow zone visitors were likely to touch, where they would find the cold feel of marble, but used fake marble everywhere else, to fool you into thinking the whole wall was real marble. I can imagine the priests of this cult telling folks the whole pyramid was granite.

The transition from granite to limestone at around 4:00 caught my eye by looking at what I thought was a difference in mortar between the blocks, but it's sand and detritus once you zoomed in.

I would say from a structural engineering view, it would make sense to build it as it went up, the granite is hard and can be refinished once the structure is complete, consider the granite lower level as the foundation levels it has to be completed before the rest goes up, also any chambers below would also have to be constructed and the whole foundation level secure before they continue going up, make sense on many levels... 🤔👍

Some time back I read that the reason for the concave sides to the pyramids had to do with directing rain water from the pyramid. Even though it rains rarely around the location of the pyramids, as the saying goes, "When it rains it pours." Consequently, redirecting the flow of the rain water would keep the structure from holding water.

Interesting theory, Alex. I guess that this would depend on whether these details were visible on the finished surface or were just substructural. And this would depend on how deep these central "spines" sit currently. If the deflection is very modest, this could have been ironed out in the casing work but if deeply set, they would have been visible in the finished work. I think an investigation into the facts of this would be very interesting. Perhaps HfG can investigate this in a future episode (if you're reading this, HfG, that would be a fascinating topic, no?)

I think that the reason for leaving the the granite unfinished was to expedite the installation of limestone casing.As I understand the limestone casing was started from the top down. So I don’t think that anyone would want to be working below. So for this reason I think the granite casing was a afterthought as a final way to support the volume of limestone casing above? And rather finishing all the granite before installing them they wanted to hurry up this support.

the similarity between the casing stone in that pyramid and some of the stones find in south america is insane... it looks literaly like many stone work found in Peru... round shaped stone with extrusions randomly apearing... then some of the stones being flat clearly after being positioned, makes you wonder, what tool they used to make it flat... because when they stop being flat and they become round, there is not shape of cuting, but ratter a curved area, what tool could do that? I mean, most people would think Granite can only be cut using diamond tools, but those stones who are extremely hard, were shaped... you can see they were shaped specialy when it stops being flat and they become curvy, its a clear sign of shaped stone... and somehow, someone did that many thousands of years ago. How would you shape granite today? is it even possible? lazer? heat? diamond cut?

A crucial detail overlooked in the descriptions is this: The loose joint fit of many of the crude unfinished granite facing blocks becomes remarkably tight when their faces are chiseled to flat finished appearance. It suggests that all the rough stones yet to be chiseled flat also have tight joints deeper in. This seems a real clue as to how joints were made tight. I think I know but will keep my big mouth shut.

Whether there are 15 or 16 courses might depend on the method of counting. For example, in England, the lowest floor in a building is called the ground floor and the next floor up is the 1st floor, whereas I believe that in USA, the lowest floor is called the 1st floor, so by the same methodology the 15th course English style might be the 16th course USA style.

The old saying in archeology, "The most valuable objects for study are those that remain incomplete because the process of creation is laid bare and design intentions can be understood." I'm no archeologist nor am I a scholar, but I have said something similar to that since I discovered that the obelisk was the next item being worked on to come out of the quarry, and that the cap stone is missing from the Great Pyramid. Good science and good theology will always agree.

Well put in a spring when physicists have accepted “non-locality”!

@Peter Jennen “Non-locality” is another dimension, which has recently (apparently) been accepted as real by quantum physics. When people experience the forcefield of love from an unimaginable but very real dimension, it reminds me of the Aztec Philosopher King Nezahualcoyotl’s (Howling Coyote’s) experience of God: “The Unknown, Unknowable Lord of All.” He built this God an empty temple and didn’t allow sacrifice. (That wasn’t, like, totally obvious? 😄 )

@Lisa Schuster "(That wasn’t, like, totally obvious? 😄 )" Ah, no. That's like, totally hilarious, and like, totally '80s! Thanks for taking the time to explain it. It is like when Jesus walked into the locked upper room to show Thomas his wounds. I think we are going to be seeing a lot more "non-locality" events soon.

Okay a little while back I saw a video of a gentleman in Egypt that was at the base of a pyrimid, there where some granite blocks these were solid blocks no holes on them no signs of holes being patched up solid blocks but when he took a small rock and tapped them there was a noticeable hollow thud he started at the top tapping and when he got to the middle there was a hollow cavity, how is this not being talked about how would this even be possible?
