## THE GREAT PYRAMID OF PHARAOH KHUFU: A PERFECT ZIGGURAT

**THE GREAT PYRAMID OF PHARAOH KHUFU: A PERFECT ZIGGURAT**

The Great Pyramid of Pharaoh Khufu is a perfect Ziggurat because it encloses a treasure of knowledge about the Earth, the Moon, the Sun, the Solar System, the galaxy and the Universe, in addition to its most important function of depicting the population demographic data of world Babylonians. This along with its ingenious design and architecture both invented by the holy high Priest and holy high King Pharaoh Khufu makes it a extremely stable Ziggurat, which is in resonance with the Earth and the Universe. This perfection of design and information makes it a perfect Ziggurat. The other perfect Ziggurats are the Tower of Babel architectured and built by holy high Priest and holy high King Nimrod along the Euphrates river and the Hanging Gardens of Babylon invented, architectured and built by holy high Priest and holy high King King Nebuchadnezzar. Each is stable and unique and perfect in its own ways though have having similarities of construction and stability.

The unique design of the Great Pyramid makes it the centre of the universe in a way which makes it the mine of universal information and knowledge.

“The Great Pyramid of Khufu is astronomically oriented in its sides and its passages are in the plane of the meridian. The Entrance passage points 3 degrees 42 minutes vertically below the pole of the sky. In the year 4188 BFN (before from now), alfa Draconis was 3 degrees 42 minutes from the north pole. When alfa Draconis was thus oriented, ♌︎ Tauri, the chief star in the Pleiades group was crossing the meridian at midnight above the pole, while alfa Draconis was crossing below the pole. The Pleiades were than at 0 right ascension, they were at the commencement of the grand celestial cycle of the precession of the equinoxes.”

“The equinox means the time when the days and nights are equal. This occurs on the 21st of March and 22nd of September, called respectively the Vernal and Autumnal equinox. Twenty five thousand six hundred and twenty seven years lapse during the grand cycle as it takes this much time for each Star and Galaxy to complete that stellar round. This is the Precessional cycle or the Precession of the equinoxes. This real or apparent movement of the Stars of 50’’.1’ of a degree or 22 minutes 21 seconds of time makes the whole length of the stellar round 25,827 years”. This peculiar celestial cycle is defined in the Great Pyramid of Khufu by the two diagonals of the base. The added lengths of the two diagonals is 25827 Pyramidal Inches, equal to the length in years of the Precessional cycle. The King Chamber is 1702 Pyramidal Inches (PI) above the pavement of the Great Pyramid of Khufu and the perimeter of the Pyramid at this level is 25827 PI, the length in years of the Great Precessional Cycle.”

The entrance to the Great Pyramid of Khufu is in its North wall away from the centre. It is formed by two concentric triangles, each formed of a block of stone. The thickness of the roof stone is 100 PI and that of the stone above it is 60 PI. The height of triangular hollow under arch stones is 65 PI. The length of the roof sides of the hollow is 84 PI. The breadth of the base of triangular hollow is 128 PI. The entrance passage has a transverse height of 47.24 PI and a vertical height of 52.76 PI and total is 100 PI. The entrance passage angle is 26 degrees 28 minutes and 7 seconds.

The entrance passage leads into the First Ascending passage whose breadth is 41.6 PI and height of 47.3 PI with a floor length of 1291.2 PI on the west side and 1291.4 PI on the east side.

The first ascending passage ends in a trifurcation, continuing straight up into the grand gallery, continuing horizontally into the horizontal chamber and continuing downwards into the well.

The horizontal passage begins at the lower end of grand gallery and extends due south to reach the Queen chamber, entering its northern wall on the eastern side. The horizontal passage has a depression of half its height about 1/7th of its whole length from the southern end. The whole length of the horizontal passage from the north wall of grand gallery to the Queen chamber is 1519.4 PI. The length of passage with low level is 216.1 PI. The length without roof is 217.8 PI. The breadth of horizontal passage is 40.61 PI to 41.46 PI. The height of horizontal passage is 46.16 PI to 69 PI.

Continuing upwards the ascending passage leads into the grand gallery. The Grand Gallery has a north end doorway which measures 53.2 PI in vertical hight and 42.2 PI broad. The Grand gallery has a set of east and west ramps with a portion in between which is 41 to 42.5 PI broad. The breadth above ramps is 82 PI. The upper or south of the grand gallery has a grand step stretching across the whole width of the grand gallery. The breadth of grand gallery above the south doorway is 82.2 PI and breadth of south doorway is 41.4 PI. The height of south doorway is 43.6 PI. The full length of the grand gallery is 1882.8PI. The partial length from north wall to beginning of great step is 1814.8 PI. There are 28 ramp holes on either side in the grand gallery. The ramps have a breadth of 20.1 to 20.4 PI and height at right angles to incline of 20.3 to 21.8 PI. The vertical height of the grand gallery is 344.2 PI at a distance of 20 PI from north wall to 339 PI at a distance of 1780 PI and mean height comes to 339.5 PI. The roof stones of grand gallery are 36 from north to south. There are both end and side overlapping on east and west walls and are seven in number each. There are overlapping at the south end of the grand gallery as well, the undersurface of all these overlapping are level and not following the incline of the gallery. The overlapping are again seven each in number.

These overlapping both on the south and north end of the grand gallery is a reminder to the observer that they are about to enter a chamber, the King chamber which is at the level of the 50th masonry course, which is at that level because the lower courses number 7x 7 as in a Ziggurat and thus the top Prayer chamber can only be a next level which happens to be the level of the 50th course. This reminds the observer that the King chamber is the Prayer chamber of the Ziggurat Great Pyramid of Khufu. The observer is to maintain decorum in entering into this chamber and to not disturb its holiness and sanctity. The Observer is supposed to not wear shoes, should be clean and should not cause any damage or disruption in the Prayer Chamber King Chamber. While inside the Chamber the observer/pilgrim should focus onto Prayers and maintaining peace and tranquility. Though the pilgrim can pray in the heart as one pleases but reciting the “The Burial” prayer and prayers from the ‘ book of the dead’ will be meritorious and rewarding.

“Hail, the Mardok, grant that Pharaoh Khufu may flourish,

and grant that his pyramid, his everlasting building may flourish,

and grant that this pyramid is stabilised for ever,

if the soul of the earth flourisheth, the name of Pharaoh khufu shall flourish,

and this his pyramid shall flourish, and his everlasting building shall flourish,

if the name of Osiris flourisheth, the name of Pharaoh Khufu shall flourish,

and this his pyramid shall flourish, and his building shall flourish for ever,

If the name of Ra flourisheth in the horizon, the name of this Pharaoh Khufu shall flourish,

and this his building shall flourish for ever,

O keep not captive my soul, O keep not ward over my shadow,

and let them see the great Mardok in the shrine on the day of the judgment of souls,

and let them recite the utterances of Osiris, whose habitations are hidden,

and who keep ward over the spirits,

and who hold captive the shadows of the dead,

O Mardok help in this endeavour,

to the place of verdant offerings,

and to the fields which are on the horizon,

O Mardok help me so that,

my members shall have an everlasting existence,

I shall neither decay, nor rot, nor putrefy, nor turn into worms, nor see corruption,

I shall have my being, I shall live, I shall flourish, I shall wake up in peace,

O Mardok,

the land of the living and the land of the dead are inter-twined and inter-linked,

life feeds on death to live,

the dead eat the energy of the offerings from the living,

the dead are sustained by libations,

the dead are sustained by the nourishment of the ka

of the living,

as the living are sustained by the support the dead,

since the kau flows through both the ancestors and their descendants,

so the life of the living and dead

are sustained through the cycle,

life feeds on death

and death is sustained by the living”

The grand gallery leads into the Antechamber, a room before the King chamber measuring 65 to 65.3 PI in breadth, length of 116.3 PI from north to south, height of 149.2 to 149.5 PI from floor to ceiling and the circumference of walls under ceiling is 363.4 PI. At a depth of 46.2 PI below ceiling on east side and 37.5 PI on the west side, the width is decreased from 65.2 PI to 41.4 and 42 PI by the presence of granite wainscots. The ceiling of antechamber is granite in three lengths of 41.5 PI, 38.5 PI, 36.5 PI from north to south.

The north wall of antechamber is limestone in three courses measuring 29 PI, 35.3 PI, and 41.5 PI. The whole height from floor is 149.3 PI, the breadth at top is 65.2 PI, breadth inside granite wainscot 41.7 PI. The depth from ceiling to granite wainscot on east side is 46.2 PI and on west side is 37.5 PI.

The south wall of the antechamber is granite except the topmost course which is 12 PI deep of limestone. The whole height from floor surface to ceiling 149.4 PI. The whole height from bottom of side hollow to ceiling is 152.5 PI. The breadth at top is 65.2 PI and breadth elsewhere is 48.1 PI

The south wall has four vertical lines, deep straight vertical grooves, which subdivide from east to west into five symmetrical parts, which are located at eye level. Their depth is 2.8 PI and their breadths from east to west as 3.6, 4.0, 4.0, and 4.0 PI near the top and 3.4, 3.8, 3.5, and 3.3 PI near the bottom. Their shape in cross-section is parabolic. These lines impress on the observer that the number five in its various forms is important for calculation in the Ling chamber.

The east wall of the antechamber is granite. The height from the floor to the ceiling is 149.3 PI, the length from north to south is 116.3 PI. The height of the three courses are 43.7 PI, 59.4 PI, and 46.2 PI. The granite wainscoting of the wall is 12 PI thick from wall, but has four broad grooves cut back upon it 4 PI deep, the first is 16.5 PI broad, the second is 22 PI broad, the third is 21.8 PI broad and the fourth is 22.5 PI broad. The intervening spaces or pilasters are 3.6, 5.0, and 5.3 PI broad respectively.

The west wall is granite. it has a higher wainscoting (higher by 8.7 PI).

In the antechamber, both the east wall and the west wall have granite leafs. It is 7 PI broad and 7 PI high. This is again to remind the visitor that the chamber that the visitor is entering is a Prayer chamber of the Great Pyramid of Khufu Ziggurat as it comes after 7 X 7 courses representing overlapping 7 storeys of a Ziggurat and that they need to observe decorum from there forward.

The floor from the north end go great step at the top of grand gallery on through the antechamber and passage beyond into King chamber and is formed by stones which measure 41.8 PI, 50.5 PI, 41.45 PI, 40.8 PI, 48.1 PI, 41.2 PI, 48 PI, 41.4 PI, 41.4 PI broad, and go across from east to west.

The horizontal passage from the foot of the grand gallery continues into the Queen chamber whose floor lies at the level of the 25th course. The Queen chamber is nearly square in floor with an angular roof, the eastern well has a prominent niche. The material of the walls, roof and niche is a fine white limestone with a larger content of common salt than other limestones. This kind of limestone exudes sodium chloride if it is not offered aeration. Such is seen in the Queen chamber, with encrustations of salt formed on all sides and floor. The floor is not finished and is ragged and uneven. The floor has a east side length of 205.6 PI, the south side has a length of 227.2 PI, the west side has a length of 206.0 PI and north side has a length of 226.5 PI. The roof is gabled with the the middle between two roof sides being 243.9 PI from the floor. The mean height of roof is 182.4 PI. The length of the inclined roof sides from east to west is is 226.7 PI and breadth on the incline is 120.1 PI. The diagonals measure on floor is 302.9 PI from north-east corner to south-west corner, is 303.6 PI from north-west corner to south-east corner. The diagonal measure on north wall is 293.5 PI from low north-east corner to high north-west corner and 291.0 PI from low north-west corner to high north-east corner. The diagonal measure on south wall is 291.8 PI from low south-east corner to high south-west corner and is 290.1 PI from low south-west corner to high south-east corner. The diagonal measure on the east wall is 275.5 PI from low south-east corner to high north-east corner and 275.2 PI from low north-east corner to high south-east corner. The diagonal measure on the west wall is 273.8 PI from low south-west corner to north west corner and is 277.3 PI from low north-west corner to high south-west corner. The angle of rise of each side of roof with base is 102.5 degrees.

The niche in the Queen chamber is on the east wall but not in the centre of the east wall but towards its south wall. It consist of five concentric rectangularities with decreasing size from the floor to the roof. The niche top goes higher than the imaginary flat top of the roof. The height of the niche is 185.8 PI, the depth is generally 41 PI and the depth is 100 PI about 38 PI above the floor.

The central axis of the niche in the Queen chamber is 25 PI from the central vertical line of the east wall. The breadth of the niche at the head is also 25 PI. This is one scared cubit.

The areas of walls(4), roofs(2) and floor divided by 10,000 and ratioed are in the ratio of 3:3:3:3:3:3:5 where the last is the representation of the floor. This shows the week of seven days with the seventh day being the rest day, this day being given more weightage by its value 5 in the ratio. The seven sides of the Queen chamber also denote the week of seven days with the rough unfinished floor denoting the day of rest.

The five different sized spaces in the niche are an indication of the construction of the roof of the King chamber, which has five spaces and five transverse stone roofs with the last being the gobbled roof with inclined stones. Since this roof construction cannot be seen so the roof of the Queen chamber and the niche combined together is the map showing the construction of the roof of the King chamber.

The height of the niche multiplied by pi and pyramid number 10 gives the height of the Great Pyramid of Khufu 5813 PI.

The height of the niche minus the height of its inner space multiplied by 10 pi, equals half the base side length of the Great Pyramid of Khufu (185-39.6 x 10pi = 4568 PI)

The height of the north and south walls of the Queen chamber measured is 182.22 PI and as 182.62 multiplied by 10 and divided by 2 is 9131 PI which is the length of the base side in Pyramidal Inches.

Also 182.62 x2 is 365.24 solar days in solar tropical year.

The antechamber leads into the King chamber. The King chamber in the Great Pyramid of Khufu is located at the 50th Course level. It is constructed in polished granite and appears rectangular with a mean height of 230.1 PI. Its length is 412.6 PI. The breadth is 206.3 PI. The diagonals of floor from south-west to north-east corners is 462 PI and north-west to south-east is 461.3 PI. The diagonals o the east wall is 309.2 PI from low north-east corner to high south-east corner and 310 PI from low south-east corner to high north-east corner. The diagonal on the west wall is 310.4 PI from low south-west corner to high north-west corner.

The blocks of the floor are are arranged in six grand stripes or bands crossing the length of the room but are not equal in breadth.

The walls are composed of five horizontal courses and are of the same height all around. The courses of wall are of equal height of 47 PI. The lowest course has its lower 5 PI assimilated in the floor.

The roof is composed of seven full beams and two portions of beams. The breadths of the whole ones are not equal. Breadths from east to west are 22, 50, 52, 53, 49, 46, 61, 57, 22 PI. The seventh stone is 61 PI broad, 80 PI deep and length of 326 PI.

The King chamber has a coffer with external dimensions as 90.01 PI in length, 38.65 PI in breadth, 41.27 PI in height, mean thickness of vertical sides is 5.99 PI and mean thickness of bottom around the edges is 6.92 PI.

The internal dimensions of the coffer are 77.93 PI in length, 26.73 PI in breadth, 34.34 PI in depth.

The volume of the coffer is 71318.416748 cubic PI internally and external volume is 143143.784925 cubic PI.

The King chamber is located at the 50th masonry course, which is on top of 7x7 masonry courses, signifying the seven tiers in a Ziggurat and the combined prayer chamber which is the top of the Ziggurat is represented by the King chamber located at the 50th Corse.

The prayer chamber in a Ziggurat does not contain anything except tranquility for meditation and prayers. This is provided by the King chamber in the unique way the Great Pyramid of Khufu Ziggurat has been built.

Also reference here is made to the rest day of the week which is the seventh day. Since the King chamber follows a 7 x 7 masonry course stepping, so the resting day can be only at the 50th masonry course. Hence the King chamber signifies the rest day and importance of ret day but because the sarcophagus is also located in the King chamber, it signifies rest from physical life itself. Thus holy high Priest and holy high King Pharaoh Khufu is showing that rest is of two types, one at the end of a week and one is at the end of life. He is saying that a human born needs rest in life and a final rest at the time of death to take leave from the physical body and enter into a pure state of eternal energy and stability, depending on one’s deeds and functions performed while living. These deeds and functions determine the stability of the energy package we call the spirit and this determines what level of peace and tranquility is acquired by the person (spirit) in afterlife. Because the constituents of this energy package is influenced by all actions, deeds, thought processes and functions one perform during physical life so every action and deed of a person counts towards the formation of this afterlife spirit package and this in turn determines what kind of afterlife one gets. The Babylonian Commandments have been formulated to bring the best spirit package for each person who follows them in this life. This determines the spirit energy package the kind of afterlife. Thus Babylonian commandments and Mescac as a religion has been designed over million of years by the Babylonian geniuses under the guidance of the Mardok to bring the best out of the Babylonians following them so that they can have a tranquil and peaceful afterlife as well. Thus the Mardok in the form of Mescac takes care of this life and afterlife at the same time.

Some prayers help in formulating and consolidating the virtues and power of the commandments and Mescac into the soul and spirit of the person and such prayers should be revised frequently to strengthen your spirit.
