Now you will learn about the materials used in the construction of the pyramids. This knowledge is of fundamental importance and without it a proper pyramid cannot be built, still less an effective one. Irrespective of the purpose for which a pyramid was being built, only natural materials were used in its construction, The choice of materials was determined by their properties, their influence on the human organism and energy system. In order to explain what exactly these materials were, let us look at the corresponding Ancient Egyptian hieroglyph that was used for the building material of temples and pyramids.
Here it is:
The hieroglyph is made up of several pictograms denoting specific objects. Let’s look and see what lies behind them. The hieroglyph in question is interesting in that it can be read in either direction without its meaning being changed.
The first element , a pictogram resembling a feather, means “Maat”. Egyptologists translate this as “the Law”. In order to gain a better understanding of the meaning of the concept, picture the following.
… A sunny day, a broad spreading tree stands in the midst of the savannah with birds hiding and animals strolling in its shadow. Alongside flows the Nile, full of creatures and water weed. All this great variety of life is co-ordinated, balanced and harmonized. That which regulates natural processes, elevating nature from simple forms to more complex ones, harmonizing the whole gamut of living and non-living nature is “Maat”. This ideogram symbolized the Law, or rather the Principle that needs to be observed for harmonious development and interaction with nature, employing its energy mechanism. Thus in the context the ideogram should be understood to mean “natural”, “of natural origin”
The following element stands for “house” or “dwelling”.
The third means “a lens” or “having the properties of a lens”. The fact that the Ancients knew about lenses is confirmed by archaeological finds made during excavations in Egypt, Greece and Mesopotamia, which turned up lenses made of rock crystal and beryl.
The fourth - is a descriptor of shape and means “in the shape of a brick” or, for the technically-minded, “parallelepipedic”.
You must surely be beginning to guess what is being described.
The hieroglyph should be understood to mean “natural material having a lens-like effect in the shape of a brick for the building of a house”.
One natural material that does behave like a lens is quartz. That is why all the pyramids of Ancient Egypt were built from minerals that contain quartz: sandstones, quartzites, limestones and granites. Granite was also used because it possesses natural radioactivity, which in natural doses (in accordance with Maat) influences the course of biological time.
Quartz has one very important property. The vertical axis of symmetry in a quartz crystal is twisted in a spiral. “X-ray examination of the structure of quartz crystals confirms the deduction. In accordance with this two types of structure can be distinguished — left-handed and right-handed.» (Fig.1).
To explain the lens effect we need to turn once again to the conceptual system of the Ancient East.
The quartz crystal, like any other mineral, has its energy centre (chakra) or crystal lattice. However, because in quartz the axis of symmetry forms a spiral,111 several projections of the main energy centre form within the crystal. That is to say one centre receives energy, but several give it out. You can picture it more precisely in this way: one zone of the crystal accumulates energy within itself, transforms and scatters it. What was one flow becomes several. Due to the helical structure and, as a consequence, this scattering effect, quartz crystals – and pyramids built with quartz – have a gentle, general healing effect on a person’s energo-informational structure and his or her entire organism.
