Were the Pyramids Power Plants?

Interior Diagram of the Great Pyramid at Giza

The most commonly accepted theory is that the Great Pyramid at Giza was a tomb for the fourth dynasty Egyptian Pharoah Khufu or Cheops (two different versions of the same name).

However, there are a disturbing number of features about the Great Pyramid that this theory doesn’t account for. The first and most obvious being that the Great Pyramid doesn’t contain any of the things a real Egyptian tomb would, such as extravagant artifacts; ornate wall art; sealed entrances; elaborate coffins; or even mummies.

It would have taken 20 years to build the Great Pyramid using at least 20,000 workers, working all day, every day, using ramps, ropes and pulleys (as conventionally hypothesized). However, this hypothesis remains just that: a hypothesis — it’s never been proven. But even if it’s true, how could a resting place for the dead warrant such phenomenal time, effort and precise engineering?

The pyramid contains angled tunnels that lead not only into the pyramid, but deep underground, into areas as yet unexplored. What tomb needs a shaft directed underneath it?

We also know that centuries ago, there were enormous swivel doors that weighed no less than 20 tons. But miraculously, they were so well engineered they could be opened by the push of a hand. Since no Egyptian tomb has been found to be deliberately accessible, what were the pyramids for?

The Great Pyramid of Giza was once covered in white polished limestone, referred to as casing stones. The stones fit together so perfectly, they would have given the pyramid, smooth, flawless sides. This would have made the giant structures brightly reflect the sun like a mirror. It also would have made the inside of the structure perfectly insulated.

A large earthquake in 1303 shattered many casing stones, and the remainder were removed to use on other structures. Today, all that remains is the inner core of the pyramid.

The material dolomite was used on the inner surfaces of the pyramid. Dolomite is known to increase electrical conductivity, directly relative to the amount of pressure on it: high pressure creates more electrical current.

Lining the passageways and underground tunnels of the pyramid is granite, which is slightly radioactive. Granite contains…

I've been a huge fan of sci-fi my whole life, but recently, I've come to realise that we live in a stranger universe than anything anyone's ever dreamed up.
