Why build pyramids
• Why build pyramids
On Earth, there are several hundred pyramids - from relatively small buildings with up to 30-storey building. But scientists are still questions about their functionality.
Despite the fact that scattered across the planet pyramid differ in their size, shape, and construction time in them much more in common than it might seem at first glance. The researchers note in many respects similar handwriting construction of the pyramids. This applies both to the processing of stone, and to its installation. Some of the pyramid, in particular, the Mexican and the ones that are in the depths of the ocean combines presence at the foot of the monolith hewn 'stylized head. " University of California scientists have recently mapped all known pyramids and discovered that they are located approximately on the same line. If the starting point to take the Pyramids of Giza, this line ends at the Güímar pyramids, erected in the Canary Islands. According to Norwegian explorer Thor Heyerdahl, the similarity of ancient megalithic structures due to the fact that between the islands and continents there was an exchange of experience. His expeditions of Heyerdahl proved the possibility of navigation ancient people on a fairly long distances.
The most popular hypothesis of building the pyramids - it is the desire to perpetuate the name of his contemporaries earthly ruler, erecting a tomb for him. For this purpose, according to most historians, in the Egyptian pyramids created special burial chambers, which are settled in for the afterlife of the pharaoh: he left jewelry, household items, furniture, weapons. A false stone corridors and doors, according to a widespread opinion, should protect the pharaoh from uninvited guests. However, as the archaeologists say the mummy in the pyramids never found. Burials in cemeteries. For example, the mummy of Tutankhamun was found in the Valley of the Kings, Ramses II - in the rock tombs and the mummy of Cheops - the "host" of the largest Egyptian pyramid has not been identified. Storage Knowledge
One of the latest versions of the functional purpose of the pyramids suggests that they were built as a repository of knowledge of previous civilizations, in which astronomical and geographical information in the language of geometry. Domestic and foreign scientists, among them the British mathematician John Legon, spending many facets and calculate the length of the base of the pyramids, their volumes, squares and even distances between the pyramids discovered strict regularities multiplicity of rows of numbers. In particular, the ratio of the base perimeter of the Great Pyramid to its height equals the number 2PI. Based on this fact, the researchers conclude that the pyramid is a map projection scale of 1: 43200Cevernogo hemisphere.
The navigation station
French researchers A. de L. Shomer Belizal and expressed unusual assumption that the Great Pyramid of Egypt served as a transmitting station. According to researchers, because of the huge mass of the pyramid and the peculiarities of its form, which was a "false vibrating prism", it created an opportunity for the powerful radiation. Radiestezicheskoe study conducted by French experts, in their opinion, have shown that radiation could be fixed at a very large distance by a scale model of the pyramid. This allowed the ancient people without a compass to orient the ship's route to the sea or in the desert caravan.
The candidate of physical and mathematical sciences Olga Dluzhnevskaya suggests that Mexican El Castillo to carry out the calendar feature. Around the perimeter of the building is surrounded by stairs: on each side of stage 91 - a total of 364, which is equal to the number of days in the year of the Mayan calendar. Stairs are divided into 18 spans, each of which corresponds to the month - so much consisted of the Mayan calendar. Moreover, the location of the pyramid is very clearly oriented to the cardinal that the equinoxes creates an opportunity for an unusual visual effect. When the sun's rays fall on the steps formed something like a huge serpent, its head appears at the bottom of the ladder, while the body extends up the entire pyramid. Power Transformer
According to one hypothesis, the pyramid is a powerful generator, which can transform negative energy into positive. So, it is assumed that the accumulated energy of the Cheops pyramid focuses room in the royal sarcophagus at the site location. Russian engineer Alexander Hunger indirectly confirms the functional purpose of the ancient pyramids, doing the construction of so-called power of the pyramids, which, in his opinion, harmonize the structure of the surrounding space and have a positive effect on humans. However, the official science is skeptical about the theories of the Russian researcher.
Last time, scientists are increasingly inclined to believe that the ancient pyramids were observatories. In particular, it specifies "astronomical orientation" of the pyramids: at sunset during the summer solstice, and the sunrise - at the winter solstice. Egyptologist Nikolay Danilov said that the Great Pyramid as an observatory is mentioned by Arab historians. However, a long time it was not clear how astronomers could climb the smooth walls of the pyramid or the pyramid as an internal device corresponded tasks observatory. Answer found English astronomer Richard Proctor, studying the works of the ancient Greek philosopher Proclus. There was noted that the Great Pyramid was used as an observatory that was completed to the level of the Grand Gallery, which overlooks the square area. Modern researchers puzzling one fact: why the ascending tunnel of the Great Pyramid suddenly gives way to a gallery whose height exceeds 8 m? Proctor explains this convenience to observe the stars. "If the ancient astronomer needs more observation slots delivsheysya exactly half the meridian through the North Pole to observe the passage of the heavenly bodies, which he demanded that the architect? Very high tunnel with vertical walls, "- concludes the researcher.
