These videos go into great detail of the tooling, tool marks, precision found in Egyptian sculptures, artifacts etc. Simply astounding.
I'm sure Christopher Dunn and Erich von Däniken are grateful to people like you who pay their rent.Yesterday I finished reading Chris's book "The Giza Power Plant" It is a technological tour de force. On ESMB V1.0 when I would post stuff about Egyptian technology I was frequently rebutted with commentary showing how these stone blocks could be cut with bronze saws that rubbed sand back and forth. While that is completely true in limestone which is a soft stone, the problem gets much worse cutting granite.
His book goes into the whys and hows of the great pyramid - the raison d'etre of the need for precision. Facinating book.

I do want to point out something - this book was not written with a bottle of scotch in one hand and a typewriter in the other. It is the product of years of research.I'm sure Christopher Dunn and Erich von Däniken are grateful to people like you who pay their rent.
Assuming this theory would work in practice, since the circumference (and therefore the diameter) of the Earth was only calculated with any accuracy (by Eratosthenes of Cyrene) several thousand years after the pyramids were built, it's very difficult to see how they got it to function. Obviously I haven't read the book, but just going on your rough outline, just because granite has quartz crystals in it, it doesn't automatically mean it will generate power. Anyway, I'm not buying it, sorry.I do want to point out something - this book was not written with a bottle of scotch in one hand and a typewriter in the other.

I agree the title is off putting. However, when you consider what a power plant is - a machine for converting one form of energy into another, this theory of his could be workable.
A coal power plant burns coal to make heat to make steam to drive turbines - the downside? Acid rain as well as smog and other contaminates going up the smoke stack and out into the air we breath.
Nuke power plants have radioactive waste with a half life of thousands of years.
Damming rivers for electric generators are also destructive of the local environment, impede movement of fish etc.
The earth is in constant movement seismically, as well as from the influence of the moon orbiting the earth. It has a very low level vibration. What if you could amplify that vibration and convert it into energy? There would be little if any, toxic waste.
That is essentially what the pyramid does. It has long been known it's dimensions are in an exact ratio to the diameter of the earth. Why? So it would resonate properly. As a musician you are familiar with resonation and the length of the string is very important to have an exact on key resonation. Building the pyramid to the dimensions would cause it to resonate with the earths vibration, correct? In theory at least?
The grand gallery is very carefully constructed to resonate at an exact note. This is widely known as well.
Granite has quartz crystals in it - and quartz has a piezoelectric property - it converts mechanical into electrical energy. The microphones you use operate on the same principal. The massive granite beams (see 5 below) suspended above the grand gallery are each tuned to the same specific note. Getting them to vibrate at that note would convert the earth's vibration into power. Clean power without toxic waste. It's a great concept.
If China could do something like that - think how it would clean up the air if all those coal burning plants could be taken off the line. His book breaks down all the steps in detail of how the pyramid functions.
No Nile River rushing there?I agree that the technology used was advanced.
It's a stretch to say the pyramid was a power plant.
Why no power now?
The Nile runs close by though in those days it flooded annually. There's no need for aliens etc. - homo sapiens have been around for what? 200K years? We went from a virtual stone age existence to our "modern" civilization in a few thousand years. Who knows how many times our civilization has been almost completely wiped out, only to regrow to a technological society?No Nile River rushing there?
Just a thought here. But why do we casually accept that so many of their works of art depict human-like, yet NOT really human beings. Maybe there were non-human actors on the construction sites but you'd have to regress workers thru hypnosis to get them to recall. Alien mind wiping?
I guess. I would think the opposite because, if there's less resources, having a lower population would be a good goal to conserve what resources were available. But maybe you're right.More females = more births, needed to compensate for the increase in freezing deaths.
