The Mathematical Genius Encoded in the Great Pyramid

Image of the great pyramids of Giza, in Egypt.

Across the shifting sands of time, nowhere has remained more mysterious than ancient Egypt. This desert beacon continues to allure millions due to its unsolved secrets, theories, and godlike pharaohs.

But perhaps the greatest reason for Egypt’s enduring popularity is a theory that places the age of this enigmatic land’s monuments so far back in history that Egyptology’s explanations seem untenable. This ultra-ancient origin has led many to surmise that the people who built these physical structures were capable of such an advanced level of engineering, in which they encoded the mathematical principles of life itself.

The architects of ancient Egypt’s monuments were far more purposeful in their proportions, measurements, angles, and equations than most modern-day archaeologists credit them with. There is also the distinct possibility that these architects found a way to naturally harness electricity from the Earth itself.

A Mathematical Code of the Universe? 

While archaeologists have long been infatuated with the construction and grandeur of the Egyptian pyramids, the greatest mystery may have nothing to do with how these structures were precisely designed and crafted, but more about how they were potentially used as powerful devices to generate electrical power.  

The Great Pyramid of Giza features both a shape and location designed to harbor mathematical constants. This same mathematical theory can be found throughout nature and across the universe.  

Nikola Tesla, who sought to tap into the electromagnetic currents of the earth to bring the world unlimited electrical power, was in touch with these same mathematical underpinnings. Like the pyramid builders, Tesla realized Earth is a magnetic generator, spinning around two poles, with the potential to generate limitless energy. 

In 1905, he filed a United States patent, titled “The art of transmitting electrical energy through the natural medium,” and conceptualized designs for a series of generators stationed in strategic sites worldwide that would collect energy from the ionosphere. With its two poles, Tesla saw the earth as a massive electrical generator of limitless energy and designed generators based on the pyramids’ design.

The Key to the Pyramids: Location?

Although Tesla may have rediscovered this key to a timeless, abundant, clean, and eternal source of free electricity, his invention to capture it disappeared when he died in 1943. Why this happened only opens more doors to speculation, including the fact that free energy — whether from solar, wind, or electromagnetic sources — is bad for those in the energy business.  

What’s more astounding is the sophistication of mathematical equations used by the early architects to construct what may be an elaborate electrical generator.

In 2018, a team of scientists from ITMO University, Russia, began to study the Great Pyramid of Giza and its ability to concentrate electromagnetic energy in its internal chambers and under its base. Author Andrew Collins suggests the pyramids are related to the idea of “the music of the spheres,” a connection between the primal tones of the universe itself and their relationship to the creation of form and structure in the physical world. 

To attune and enhance this connection, ancient engineers had to consider certain proportions in the construction of the pyramids, as well as the geometry of the landscape, to accurately reflect specific musical intervals. We are left wondering if ancient builders erected monuments that encoded our human existence. 

Some modern thinkers, such as https://www.gaia.com/video/new-understandings-great-pyramid hint that perhaps the Egyptian mathematical code is the same as that which Tesla tapped into on his quest to find an unlimited source of energy that harmonized with the Earth.

Looking at the Great Pyramid’s latitudinal location on Earth, Hancock points out that it is located precisely on the 30th degree, halfway between the equator and the north pole. It is also locked into the planet’s true cardinal directions of north, south, east, and west, though there is a very slight discrepancy of 3/60ths of a degree error.

Hancock also points out that if you were to multiply the base perimeter of the Great pyramid (3,024 ft.) by 43,200 you get the Earth’s equatorial circumference. If you multiply its height (481 ft.) by 43,200 you’re left with the polar radius of the Earth. This number, 43,200, is relevant because it represents the axial precession of the Earth or the way in which it wobbles on its axis. 43,200 is a multiple of 72, which is the number of years it takes for one degree of that wobble.

These numbers, 72 and 432, can be found in a number of ancient mythologies and sacred texts, including:

  • 72: the number of languages spoken at the tower of Babel
  • 72: the number of names for God in Jewish Kabbalah
  • 72: the number of temples at Angkor Wat
  • 72: the number of degrees longitude between Angkor Wat and the Great Pyramid
  • 432,000: the number of syllables in the Hindu Rig Veda
  • 432 Hz: the harmonic frequency believed to be an optimal resonance for music

This suggests the ancient Egyptians — as well as others, such as the people of Angkor Wat, the Mayan megalopolis of the Americas, and builders of similar sites all over the planet — may have used a mathematical language we are just now rediscovering. 

Our Mathematical Universe 

To truly crack the code of the ancient pyramids, we may now need to look at the mathematical equations encoded in their architecture. The problem may very well be that we have been looking for answers “out there,” in the universe when the answer to our most pressing problems is inside us.  

Hancock has long argued that the concept of the pyramids has to do with the transformation of human consciousness. Whatever else a pyramid is, he said, it is absolutely an instrument that works on human consciousness. The very construction of the pyramids, powerful and sturdy enough to stand the test of time, ensures that humanity always has the codes to the universe.

Evidence of Seven Levels of Infrastructure Beneath the Giza Plateau

Five miles from Cairo stands one of the most ancient and alluring sites in human history. This mystery comprises the three main pyramids of Giza that have come to represent one of the most famous ancient civilizations. The megalithic stones that form these structures lie on a great plateau, and now investigators have found something else fascinating that lies below the pyramids.

Gregg Braden explains that some of the earliest credible accounts of the Giza Plateau come from the Greek historian and geographer Herodotus, who, in the early 400s B.C.E, compiled a reference book on ancient civilizations, cultures, and technologies predating his time by thousands of years. 

Prior to Herodotus, no one had presented a systematic, thorough study of the past, attempting to link events with how they shaped history. Herodotus speculated there were hidden passages beneath the pyramids, as well as chambers, pathways, and great spaces — all of which were created when the climate and topography of Egypt were very different than it is today. Herodotus felt that beneath the pyramids lay the remnants of other ancient civilizations. 

If Herodotus was correct, the pyramids may be sitting upon the most amazing time capsule in history, revealing not only long-lost cultures but also their technologies and origins saved in the earliest of writings and images. 

Two researchers stand out in the search to uncover the underground spaces beneath the pyramids: British Consul General Henry Salt and his hired explorer Giovanni Battista Belzoni. These men were able to survey the area with the limited technology of their time in the early 1800s and were led by the desert topography to an area at the edge of the Giza Plateau, now an archaeological find of its own called The Tomb of the Birds.
