Ancient Egyptians

 Nature (@stefan)7 years, 9 months ago

So I’ve watched this documentary about the pyramids and I’ve used my own calculation to confirm that for the great pyramid of giza, if you divided surface area of the four surfaces of the pyramids by the base of the pyramid, you get the golden ratio and it is accurate to the fourth decimal.

It also states that if you draw a circle on the inside and outside of the pyramid and subtract the circumferences, you will get the same speed of light per second. The base of the pyramid is 230.4m, but I’ve used 230.3809m (a tiny difference, after all wikipedia information might not be precise) and done the calculations and value was correct to the fifth or sixth number (can’t remember). The decimal was in the wrong place, but that was because I’ve used meters to calculate it. Now this might be a coincidence, but I’m pretty sure the golden ratio wasn’t, since I’m pretty sure they did have knowledge about the golden ratio back then. I recall more use of the golden ratio in ancient Egypt but I don’t remember specifically where. Some calculations also added up to the pi value.

The documentary also state that if you multiply the distance from Angkor Wat to Giza by the golden ratio, the value will equate to the distance from the Giza to the pyramid in Cahuachi, Peru. I’ve done these calculations and the values were close, not accurate, but that might be because I couldn’t find the exact location of the Peru pyramid so my distance was a little off.

What are your thoughts on the ancient Egyptians using the golden ratio? What purpose did it serve? Was it because they realized the golden ratio is found everywhere in nature and they wanted to build their pyramids according to nature, or is there a greater reason for this?

It’s anyone’s guess, unfortunately. I used to be obsessed with this topic, and after researching it for a long time, I can only conclude that it will always be left open to speculation. Let me guess, you watched “The Revelation of the Pyramids,” right? It’s an interesting documentary. It raises a lot of questions but unfortunately fails to address a lot of them. Some people say the pyramids were used to provide free energy, some say it was used to raise human consciousness via the Earth’s chakras and energy grids, and some say it was built simply because the people who built it wanted something that would last for millennia.

At the end of the day, you just have to choose what you want to believe. What I do know for sure is that their construcion was an extremely impressive engineering feat, and the fact that an ancient civilization was able to build it is enough to appreciate it, no matter what it was built for.

The pyramids were not built by the egyptians. There were races far older than even the sumerians. Science really is no closer to truth than it was 100 years ago, and it seems technology is only dumbing us down even more today than yesterday.

@chodebalm, I agree with you on that. It can only be left open to speculation since there isn’t any clear evidence for what the whole purpose of the pyramids were.

Nope, I haven’t watched ”“The Revelation of the Pyramids,”. It was the ”Ancient Knowledge Pt.3 Pyramids, Monuments & Megaliths, Ley Lines (Earth’s Energy Grid)” part of the documentary series which is only on YouTube I think. The whole series raises a lot of questions and claims to reveal some great truth, but it never gets to a clear answer with evidence. Nevertheless it was quite an interesting to watch.

I don’t feel like I have to choose what I want to believe, but rather just leave it as an open question and not cling to any beliefs since there is not clear factual evidence for it.

it is strange but lately i have become obsessed with pyrmids and have built one in my bedroom to meditate in. it is made of wood and is 2 meters square. im not sure if these are good dimensions but it seems to amplify my meditation by a large degree and i can visualize colors very strongly when in there.

i also visited the pyramid in giza years ago when there there was only desert all around.
the sensation inside the kings chamber was very powerful and i had a distinct feeling of knowing why they had been made. but it was impossible to put into words.

what do you think of building your own meditation pyramid. it cost me only ten bucks. it is worth a try!

I guess the best thing you can do, is watch a lot of different point of views, and take a conclusion by yourself. Past is past, it is gone, you are not there, you don’t know what happened for real, no matter how much clues they left for us, will be a lot of different point of views and conclusions about that. All these documentaries on Youtube use the expressions, ‘The truth behind…’ ‘The revelation of…’ just to grab your attention. Some of them are very accurate, but it is just a conclusion made by one or more people. Some of them are just profiting with monetization and don’t care at all with what they are saying. Youtube is very rich in content but also in bullshit. Use it to get many point of views, distinguish what is good stuff and what is bullshit, so you can get to YOUR conclusion. Don’t try to find your point of view there, it just doesn’t fit.

@stefan, I have a nice little book about all the decoded math of all that, it is a short but good read. Since all my books are in storage, I will try to find a link online to see if it is still in print.

@stefan, Oh yeah I’ve watched all of those videos, all the way up to the most recent one – part 6/3. They’re fascinating. As someone mentioned above, I don’t believe the Egyptians built the pyramids either. I think the pyramids were there far before the Egyptians. There are even Egyptians today who claim that their culture merely inherited them. Also, we have to understand the fact that no tomb or coffin or any mummies have very been found.

@stonedragon21, Interesting. I would love to visit the great pyramids.

I knew a guy who owned a small pyramid and claimed that the fruits take longer to rot when they are placed underneath it. I just searched the topic on youtube and found this:

Is your pyramid hollow like the one in the video?

LVX (297) (@Vovinawol) 7 years, 9 months ago ago

@chodebalm, It’s to my understanding that they were used for initiation. But since I will never have the money to go there, I don’t bother too much about it.

@stefan, LOL, I used to keep my razor in one many years ago to keep it sharp. Yea, it did work, but the novelty wore off as time went on.

@stonedragon21, This vid is about meditation, but there is a bit about the pyramids that is nice. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TWttCv0p6WQ

@stefan, The materials used don’t seem to matter as much as the dimensions and/or the angles do. But copper is probably the best affordable mat to use.

stonedragon (143) (@stonedragon21) 7 years, 9 months ago ago

@stefan, thanks for showing that.
yes years ago i had a small wire one that i made and i dried fruit in it.
but now i made this very large one to sit in.
yes it is hollow like the one in the video but i was told it is better to make it of a metal that is not magnetic. like stainless steel or wood. so i used wooden poles. it is easy to make

[Hidden]
stonedragon (143) (@stonedragon21) 7 years, 9 months ago ago

@vovinawol, is copper magnetic or not. i was told that it should be paramagnetic.
so i used wood. the guy who had one in my garden this summer, bought his for 1500 euro. i thought that is so expensive. so i copied it with wood. im not sure if my angles or dimensions are good.
tell me if 2 meters by 2 meters etc is okay.

LVX (297) (@Vovinawol) 7 years, 9 months ago ago

@stonedragon21, I’m thinking that the angle from the base to the apex is the most important.
So the base can be any length, and then the angle will give the hieght according to the base.
And yea, wood is fine, as well as just about any material. You can even add copper wire to your wooden frame to give it a boost if you feel you need to. That would keep the cost down alot also. There is no need to buy any overpriced manufactured item, unless you have money to burn. You can even draw one up in the minds eye if you really wanted to.

@chodebalm, I’ve watched until part 6/1 with the number code 9. What I got from this is that the number 9 is in many places, but I don’t get why this knowledge is important and how one can put it to use. It is like making a video about the color green and stating how pretty much every plant contains the color green… so what?
This is how I felt almost throughout the whole series. The guy keeps stating facts about certain things, but never comes to a conclusion about what the whole purpose of these facts were. One of the titles stated ”The secret of how the pyramids were built”, but never clearly stated how they were built… or maybe I didn’t pay enough attention. I assume he was trying to say it had something to do with magnetism and levitating rocks, which is the same way the coral castle was built.

I don’t know much about the ancient Egypt, but until now I always assumed coffins/tombs/mummies have been found.

@vovinawol, Thanks I’ll check the book out.
You kept a razor in a pyramid to keep it sharp? I don’t know if you’re being serious or what haha.

@stonedragon21, I think adjusting your construction to match the golden ratio would be worthwhile. Fibonacci ratios would work, but to be more accurate follow the geometric rules for the golden rectangle. It’s very interesting experimenting. Adding this to my list, definitely need to make one.

stonedragon (143) (@stonedragon21) 7 years, 9 months ago ago

@vovinawol, what a great thing you sent me. im watching it. i will put a crystal on the top. good idea. he says it doesnt matter the materials used, but the alignment is important.
i have to get a compass. never the less, i tell you i am getting good results. even if it is not at true north or even with good dimensions. it does make a difference with my meditations.

LVX (297) (@Vovinawol) 7 years, 9 months ago ago

@stefan, Yes, I really did used to do that, and it did work. If I remember correctly, I would set it (pyramid) to the cardinal points, then put the razor in it aligning the blades north to south. But yea, the novelty wore off as I moved on to other matters on my journey. I’m sure that if I dig that old frame from storage, I will probably use it for that again to save money on razors.
Good razors are a bit over priced for wage that I earn.

stonedragon (143) (@stonedragon21) 7 years, 9 months ago ago

@heavydreamz, i agree and it will be easy for me to adust this if you can calculate for me the exact size i need to cut my wooden pieces. like it said they are now all at 2 meters. at least i think they are!! im very bad at math but have read about this Fibonacci stuff. still im bad at math. thanks for helping us out here. would be great if you can write this then lots of people can just construct a pyramid and we can discuss the effects of it

[Hidden]
LVX (297) (@Vovinawol) 7 years, 9 months ago ago

@stonedragon21, Yea, it won’t have to be exact to have a benifit. I was going to mention the whole crystal thing, but I figured that most did’nt want to bother with all that. I used to charge my stones in one also, but I have’nt seen any threads about the gem topic here, so I never brought it up. : )

Nature (67) (@stefan) 7 years, 9 months ago ago

@vovinawol, Okay. I assume razor blades only get less sharp once you actually shave, do you place it in a pyramid afterwards? That would mean that the pyramid actually sharpens the razor i.e the pyramid takes away material from the edge of the razor to keep it thin and sharp and I find that quite impossible. Correct me if I misunderstood.
