PyramidsParts of a Pyramid
There are many types of Pyramids, and they are named after the shape of their base.
This tells you where the top (apex) of the pyramid is. If the apex is directly above the center of the base, then it is a Right Pyramid, otherwise it is an Oblique Pyramid.
Regular vs Irregular Pyramid
This tells us about the shape of the base. If the base is then it is a Regular Pyramid, otherwise it is an Irregular Pyramid.
Area and Volume
The Egyptian pyramids are ancient pyramid-shaped masonry structures located in Egypt.
There are 138 pyramids discovered in Egypt as of 2008.Most were built as tombs for the country's Pharaohs and their consorts during the Old and Middle Kingdom periods.
The earliest known Egyptian pyramids are found at Saqqara, northwest of Memphis. The earliest among these is the Pyramid of Djoser (constructed 2630 BCE–2611 BCE) which was built during the third dynasty. This pyramid and its surrounding complex were designed by the architect Imhotep, and are generally considered to be the world's oldest monumental structures constructed of dressed masonry. The estimate of the number of workers to build the pyramids range from a few thousand, twenty thousand, and up to 100,000.
The most famous Egyptian pyramids are those found at Giza, on the outskirts of Cairo. Several of the Giza pyramids are counted among the largest structures ever built. The Pyramid of Khufu at Giza is the largest Egyptian pyramid. It is the only one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World still in existence.
Pyramid power refers to alleged supernaturalor properties of the ancient Egyptian pyramids and objects of similar shape. With this power, model pyramids are said to preserve foods, sharpen or maintain the sharpneses of razor blades, improve health (some people "were so energized that they could not cope with the dynamo effects they experienced"), function "as a thought-form incubator,Claims
According to Flanagan, pyramids with the exact relative dimensions of Egyptian pyramids act as "an effective resonator of randomly polarized microwave signals which can be converted into electrical energy."
Summerhill Pyramid Winery in Kelowna, British Columbia built a 4-story replica of the Great Pyramid, alleged by the winery to improve the quality of wine aged within it.
Other Pyramids Research
Dr. Alexander Golod, PhD. has been doing Russian pyramid research in the former Soviet Union since 1990. This research involved the construction of over twenty large pyramids in 8 different locations in Russia and the Ukraine. The pyramids were built in many places including Moscow, Astrakhan, Sochi, Zoporozhye, Voronezh, Belgorod, the Tver Region, Krasnodar, Tolyatti, Uzbekistan, and France.
Some of the scientific results of previous studies with Pyramids built by Alexander Golod show:
In Blizhnii Bereznik, a town situated in the Arkhangelsk region of Russia, the local council ordered a complex of pyramids be constructed to treat well water that was contaminated by strontium and other heavy metals. The project was a success. Similarly, in a town called Krasnogorskoe, near Moscow, a single pyramid was built to desalinate the water—apparently successfully.
Blunted razor blades will spontaneously sharpen again when placed in a pyramid as the crystalline structure is regenerated by the harnessed energy.Drbal first discovered this effect (apparently in the late 1950s), and then attempted to patent and market his pyramid as a device that would re-sharpen blunted razor blades. Initially, however, the patent office in Prague refused to grant Drbal his patent, and it wasn’t until their chief scientist built a model for himself and got the same results that they finally did. Thus, in 1959, Drbal was awarded a Czech patent for his Cheops Pyramid Razor Blade Sharpener (Patent No. 91304), and a factory then began producing miniature cardboard pyramids. By 1973, they were being made with styrofoam.
Drbal was further vindicated in 2001, when Dr. V. Krasnoholovets showed with scanning-electron microscope photography that the molecular structure of the edge of a razor blade was being altered over a period of thirty days within a small pyramid-like structure dubbed a “resonator.” Essentially, it was a small, glass A-frame structure with a base of 20 cm and a height of 12.7 cm, oriented East to West.
The team of Prof. A.G. Antonov from the Russian R&D Institute of Pediatrics, Obstetrics and Gynecology tested the effects of a placebo solution of 40% glucose in distilled water after it had been stored in a pyramid. By administering only 1 ml of the glucose to 20 different prematurely born infant patients with seriously compromised immune systems, their levels of health were seen to increase rapidly up to practically normal values. The researchers furthermore established that the glucose was not necessary (it has no medicinal properties anyway), as the same effect could be produced by simply using 1 ml of ordinary water that had been stored in the pyramid.
