The Great Pyramid of Giza: A Modern View on Ancient Knowledge, Earth and Water – Part I

The Great Pyramid of Giza: A Modern View on Ancient Knowledge, Earth and Water – Part I


The four visible side faces of the Great Pyramid of Giza reflect the four earthly elements Earth, Water, Air and Fire. The fifth invisible element Aether is represented by the invisible ground surface of the pyramid, the foundation on which the four elements are arranged, and at the same time, the divine medium that merges these four elements. It is the perfect metaphor for creation; the five elements, the five Platonic solids. The element Aether is the invisible carrier of all information and can also be regarded as the so-called 'God-field.' The ancient Egyptian djed pillar is composed of four individual pillars assembled to form a symbol of strength and creation. These four pillars represent the four visible earthly elements, merged by the divine element Aether. Together with the ankh and the was-scepter, these specific ancient Egyptian symbols (Ankh - Was - Djed) represent the 'divine creative life force.'

Each element represents a sustainable process inside the Great Pyramid. The book 'The Great Pyramid of Giza - a modern view on ancient knowledge' by Willem Witteveen describes these magnificent processes and makes the Great Pyramid of Giza indisputably the most outstanding library of knowledge and monument of creation, rather than a tomb for a deceased pharaoh. It is no coincidence that the ratio of surface area between the four visible side faces and the invisible ground surface equals the golden ratio, the irrational number 1.618. Everything on Earth and beyond is based on this ratio and is the result of the congregation of the five elements, the confluence of the earthly and the divine as enshrined in the ancient Egyptian culture.

The element Earth

The Great Pyramid of Giza is an important part of the Giza pyramid complex situated on the edge of modern Cairo. The Giza plateau is known for the Sphinx and the three large pyramids of Khufu, Kha-F-Ra (successor of Khufu) and Men-Kau-Ra (successor of Kha-F-Ra and son of Khufu), all pharaohs from the fourth dynasty; a time period from 2613 until 2498 BCE ( Before Common Era). The Giza plateau is a higher situated massive rock plateau and inextricably connected with the structures on it.

The connection with the Earth is optimal and every vibration in the Earth and the rock plateau is unabated passed on to the three aforementioned pyramids which are basically a continuation of the massive Earth. Not hindered or disturbed by intermediate ground layers or different stone layers but a perfect continuity from Earth to the massive monuments build upon it.

The three pyramids on the Giza plateau are a direct projection on Earth of the three inner planets: Earth, Venus and Mercury. The positioning, color and size of the three pyramids correspond to mutual positioning, color and relative size of these three planets at a certain moment in time. The Sphinx is of the same age as the pyramids and the exact position of the three pyramids in relation to the similar position of the three inner planets reveal the year 10,472 BCE as the year of establishment of the whole Giza complex, a complex with a construction period of at least 300 years instead of the implausible 20 years Egyptologists still want us to believe.

The element Water

The first season of the ancient Egyptian calendar was the 'Akhet' season, in which the Nile river flooded as a result of the extensive rainy season in eastern Africa. The 'Akhet' season or yearly inundation, between June and September, was according to the ancient Egyptians, the yearly coming of the god Hapi, the god of the annual flooding that brought fertility to their land. This Egyptian god was welcomed by the lion on the Giza plateau, the Sphinx, located at the base of the Giza plateau and close to the banks of the Nile river. The Greek historian Herodotus (435 BCE) stated that the Nile water reached the front paws of the Sphinx during the annual floods, which was precisely the intention of the ancient builders.

At the time of these life-bringing floods, the Sun and the constellation of Leo both rose above the horizon in the east and therefore the Sphinx was also called the 'Guardian of the Sun.' The Sphinx is not a mythical creature from Egyptian mythology, nor a pharaoh with the body of a lion. It is merely a lion looking east as a direct representative of the nine gods of creation, descending to Earth during the astrological era of the lion, approximately 12,000 years ago at the end of the last glacial period. These nine Egyptian gods of creation, better known as the Ennead of Heliopolis, are the mythological creators and representatives of the celestial bodies in our solar system: Sun (Atum-Ra), Mercury (Shu), Venus (Tefnut), Earth (Geb), Mars (Nut), Jupiter (Osiris), Saturn (Seth), Uranus (Isis) and Neptune (Nephthys).

"The true foundation of all culture is the knowledge and understanding of water"

- Viktor Schauberger

In front of the Sphinx is the so-called Sphinx-Temple through which the Nile water was admitted to the Sphinx moat by means of an ingenious sluice system inside the temple, creating a natural flow of the water and causing a pure vibrational frequency in the water molecules. The Sphinx-Temple was constructed in order to regulate the water supply and to purify the water by means of its natural movements, as implemented by the Austrian forester Viktor Schauberger (1885-1958). The thus obtained pure and energetic Nile water was used as a raw material for the most natural and extraordinary 'House of Energy' ever built; the Great Pyramid of Giza.

Through wells at the sides of the Sphinx, which are still visible today, the water was further admitted to an underground chamber and tunnel system, located under the entire Giza plateau. This underground tunnel system was necessary to transport the water in the direction of the Great Pyramid and pyramids in general. Evidence for the existence of such an underground network can be found everywhere in the direct vicinity of all Egyptian pyramids and even in the immediate vicinity of each pyramid built (or even naturally formed) worldwide.

The water was pushed into the Great Pyramid under great pressure and filled up the lower part of the interior system. After closing the water supply a special return valve fell back into its closed position and ensured that a strong vacuum could emerge above the water surface inside the hermetically sealed pyramid. In accordance with physics, the water starts to boil without the application of heat and the complete interior system of the pyramid will be filled with the water vapor thus formed. The process is now preparing for the next step, which is the confluence of the elements Water and Air; the influence of vibration on water molecules.

I really enjoy reading any alternatives regarding ancient history but this article stumped me in the first sentence. i cannot carry on reading because I just don’t understand that which Willem writes. How does he know that the four faces of the pyramid represented the four elements?  How did Willen arrive at this? In fact almost every statement he makes i have to ask, how did he arrive at that. Further on in the article:  “The positioning, color and size of the three pyramids correspond to mutual positioning, color and relative size of these three planets at a certain moment in time.” Excuse me am I being thick? What ever does Willem mean here and how does he arrive at such a conclusion? I want to read and understand but I just cannot as I have a question after almost every sentence. please don’t answer me by saying “Read Willem’s book” as this will irritate me.
