“Skeptics argue that Borisov's characterization of the Serapeum's granite boxes as piezoelectric batteries are unlike any electric generators with which we are familiar”- Frank Joseph. What I find is that many either misinterpret or misrepresent what I said about the Serapeum’s boxes. I certainly can see how the boxes can generate high voltage but those are NOT the batteries. The piezoelectri

Too much evidence that DE used the pyramids for what the main stream Egyptologist are saying they were used for ... which is to help the dead king to ascend the sky. Though, not everything is certain here... When we talk about a dead king ascending the sky as light. Are we talking about the real light that someone can see with their eyes or all that spiritual and all that imagined by DE.

As many of you may know, There is a band of about 40 miles wide spanning around the globe and a few ancient archeological sites such as Giza Pyramids, Machupicchu, Ancient Sumerian city Ur, Nazca lines and others are aligned on this band. Not many hypotheses were proposed to explain this alignment, though it’s clear such an alignment cannot be accidental. I wrote an article on this subject that y

Hi Corvidius, Do you consider it possible that large granite coffers and burials in the Lesser vault are all a part of an old funerary custom but served a different role. e.g Apis is placed in a granite coffer with the only goal to renew Ptah’s life but when that portion of the funerary custom is complete, rebury all or what is left of the bull in a more traditional grave/tomb with funerary de

Not sure how many are familiar with this sketch... The sketch was made at the time of Mariette. The location of the stones piled on top of the lid are sure in odds unless those are somehow related to the function of the boxes. The time when those stones were stocked on top of the lid is unknown... that can be Ptolemies time or much earlier for you to decide. Thought to share, hope this gi

I uploaded a video to youtube. This video shows how the coffer in the Pyramid of Khafre was used to generate voltage. Ferment and starch present in the kings offering were placed in the coffer. Granite material of the coffer that contains Quartz crystals was exposed to the pressure built inside with CO2 gas released during fermentation. The high voltage is at low current so, not really a battery.

After skipping through introduction, conclusion and a few chapters I still have no clue what the hypothesis is about. What amazes me a lot is that all those folks are trying to explain the function of the largest and the most complex pyramid without investing even a few hours into looking at other much simpler pyramids (e.g Khafre's). Makes more sense to figure out the function of simpler pyra

I like comics, though, this gives the way better summary of the hypothesis than your blather..

He could probably make his hypothesis more convincing explaining what other 130 Egyptian pyramids were used for. Were they also masers running on water pumps? Also, how Egyptian mythology supports this hypothesis.

Ancient architect guy released a video about this hypothesis. On one hand I am happy that this hypothesis got traction (see article) but disappointed that he stole my work. Nowhere in the video he mentioned my name. Shall I go ahead and sue his pants out for this?

Hi All, Want to tap your brains for a question I have. Below is the picture of the box #23 in the Serapeum. See the map below for its location As you can see there is a hole on the front side. There is a theory floating around that the hole in the granite box was made by Mariette when he tried to pop the box open with explosive. Though, I cannot find a real prove of that t

Also, there are four entrances to serapeum from the outside. If one access was blocked, perhaps it was not used, and accesss could be through other three.

In the past few months I read all I could find about the Serapeum. It appears a lot of people reject the theory that the site was built for burials of the Apis bulls. As many pointed out, lots of things do not add up with that theory. The size of the granite coffers exceeding the size of the bulls; materials the coffers are made of, the accuracy with which they were built (to name a few). Also, i
