Hi Drewski,

Thanks for stopping by and for the kind words about our book.

You raise some pertinent points:
Quote

drewski: If the Gizamids are Recovery vaults, then why the incredibly complex and intricate design of the Great Pyramid's interior?

Surely several medium sized regular shaped (sealed) rooms would not just suffice, but would be much more practical, and all that was necessary. The shafts, I understand are intended to point to stars in the hypothosis, but why the rest of the design?

SC: Most pyramids essentially have regular shaped chambers mostly at or just below ground level. The major exception to all of this is, of course, the Great Pyramid which has one storage chamber far below the pyramid and three storage chambers built into the superstructure of the pyramid. (We include the Grand Gallery as a storage chamber). Our view is that the designers were trying to cover all bases. Build as many Recovery Vaults as quickly as possible with as many chambers therein as possible to maximise storage capacity. This is why we have Sneferu and Khufu both building at least four pyramids, some of them even being built concurrently and each with numerous storage chambers.

The Great Pyramid has the largest storage chamber of all the pyramid Recovery Vaults - the Grand Gallery. The bulders were able to maximise the storage capacity in this pyramid by building the Grand Gallery at a 26.5* angle thereby deflecting much of the weight bearing down on this chamber. Some ancient texts tell us that the AEs were expecting their god, Thoth, to drown the entire country in a great deluge. With such a pospect it is entirely understandable why the AEs would wish to build the vast majority of their pyramids on high plateaus and that they would seek to create chambers ever higher into the body of the pyramid. Moisture (water) is the enemy of organic material (such as seeds). This is why the Grand Gallery was hermetically sealed and the contents therein entered not from the Ascending Passage - which some evidence suggests was sealed at the early stages of construction - but from above before the roof was placed on the King's Chamber.

As for the shafts - in our opinion (and that of Bauval and Hancock before us), the Great Pyramid represents the terrestrial counterpart of Al Nitak in Orion's Belt. It stands to reason then that the shafts in the Great Pyramid target this star - Queen's Chamber southern shaft gives us the pre-tilt altitude of Al Nitak (around 39 degrees) whilst the King's Chamber southern shaft shows us the post-tilt altitude of this same star (45 degrees) - an approximate 6 degree axis shift (at the latitude of Giza). You can see this here - The GP Shafts and the Axis Tilt.

Regards,

SC
