A renowned Spanish architect digitally reconstructed the Great Pyramid of Khufu, located at Giza, Egypt, after analyzing and studying the scientific knowledge of the civilization of Ancient Egypt, deciphered the enigmas of the oldest of the Seven Wonders of the World.
The work of the expert says that the builders knew the Terran measures, the Sun and the decimal places of Pi.
The digital reconstruction belongs to the architect Miquel Pérez Sánchez Pla and is the first “exact” reproduction that was the monument. Surge synthesis between-presented the findings of his doctoral thesis in 2008 at the Universitat Politecnica de Catalunya (UPC) – and the results of 12 years of research.
The findings are published in the book “The Great Pyramid, secret key to the past”, which includes work on urbanism, architecture, engineering and archeology.
Salient findings are the dates of the beginning and the end of his -carried construction over 4,500 years ago during the reign of Pharaoh Khufu, also known as Keops-; the cause of its construction and the possible situation of the burial chamber of Khufu, which can be hidden yet, and that the architect placed on top of the temple because “mathematical proof”.
The publication is part of the project “Architecture in Research of Ancient Egypt”, with assistance from the Ministry of Culture, Education and Sport of Spain.On the website Ancient Egypt XXI, Pérez Sánchez guide the reader to solve the riddle of the origins of Egypt through ten digital volumes.
The architect brought to light discoveries “are staggering accept” because they involve references to the diameter of the Earth, the planet’s distance to the Sun and Sirius (the brightest evening star as seen from Earth) in light years, and the diameter of the sun, which involve knowledge of the builders of the monument.
“There are difficult elements to digest the fact that the architect and astronomer Imhotepp-responsible of the Great pyramid-knew the number Pi to four decimal places (3.1416) while it was believed that time was known only to the second ( 3.14), “said the author of the book.
Among citations to thinkers like Borges, Pythagoras, Plato, Plutarch, Dostoevsky, Voltaire and Ortega y Gasset, Pérez Sánchez also showed the actual age of the Sphinx of Giza, which previously had as a complete lion, and he turned to sculpting with head -more human small in proportion- after erosion.
Pérez Sánchez admitted that in some cases may be coincidences, but repeated the proportions and the alleged similarities, their findings so headed “causality, rather” because in some cases, as calculated, the probability that You were a coincidence was one in 32,000.
The architect acknowledged that remain unsolved mysteries, such as why the Egyptians used blocks 100, 200 or 400 tons to build temples and how they move, and how carved and embedded granite with a precision that now only could even with laser technology.
