Whoever built the Great Pyramid knew the exact measurements of the physi- cal planet. Looking at a flat map of the continents and the oceans, the pyramid is located precisely at the geographic center of the total planetary landmass. The Great Pyramid in Egypt is perfectly orientated with the four cardinal compass points of north, south, east, and west. The latitude of the Great Pyramid is exactly 30º north, one third of the distance from the equator to the pole. The north-south and east-west meridian lines, starting at the pyramid base, cover more land area than any other planetary longitudinal or latitude lines.
Today tourists are only allowed access through an artificial entrance passage to the Grand Galler , which ultimately leads into the King’s Chamber. Inside the King’s Chamber are extremely hard granite blocks that are very difficult to cut, let alone polish, even by today’s standards. The granite blocks are perfectly smooth over 19-feet lengths to within 1/100 of an inch! So exact were the cuts, that even today a thin razor blade cannot be inserted between them—and some of these blocks weigh more than 50 tons (45,350 kg)!
There is a tremendous gap in our understanding of the intelligence used to construct the Great Pyramid if we are to believe conventional Egyptologists. How could a people, supposedly only one step removed from the Stone Age, be in possession of mathematical and astronomical data that scientists of our age are only now beginning to fully understand? There appears to be much we still need to learn about this magnificent monument.
More questions than answers remain about the true origins of the Great Pyramid and
the Sphinx. Several chambers between both monuments have yet to be revealed. 27
