322. The mystery is that religion is but a tool to control the masses. Knowledge (or wisdom) is their only god, through which man himself will become god. The snake and the dragon are both symbols of wisdom. Lucifer is a personification of the symbol. It was Lucifer who tempted Eve to entice Adam to eat of the tree of knowledge and thus free man from the bonds of ignorance. The WORSHIP (a lot different from STUDY) of knowledge, science, or technology is Satanism in its purest form, its secret symbol is the all-seeing eye in the pyramid. (Religion & Knowledge & Gods & Snake & Dragon & Lucifer & Adam & Eve & Satan & Pyramid) Bill Cooper, Secret Societies/New World Order

58,041. I consider this mighty structure as a monument of the insufficiency of human enjoyments. Samuel Johnson, Rasselas
58,042. In the Egyptian world the pyramids were largely used as interior spaces for burials. But in meso-America the pyramids and the ceremonial centres were exterior spaces, they were theatres. Theatres for the performance of the relationship between the people and the gods. Professor David L Carrasco, Princetown University
58,043. The largest pyramid and the largest monument ever built is the Quetzalcoatl Pyramid at Cholula de Rivadavia 101 km (63 miles) south-east of Mexico City. It is 54 m (177 ft) tall. Guinness World Records 2005 (50th edition)
58,045. I found an interesting pattern among the stories that have been handed down by different peoples. There’s written records in Egypt that suggest they used sound waves to lighten blocks of stone against gravity. Jonathan Gray, interview Coast to Coast Hidden Discoveries, author 64 Secrets Still Ahead of Us
58,046. Holes have been examined in some of the stonework of the Great Pyramid which any drilling expert can identify and these have been very specifically identified as having been drilled by something that pressed through the rock at 500 times the power of modern drills. ibid.
58,047. There seems to be a consensus, George, that there are not just tunnels linking the whole Giza Plateau underneath going for many miles but that there are great underground rooms going down quite a few storeys. ibid.
58,048. A robot crawled up a mysterious shaft to see what lay beyond a mysterious door. New spaces in the pyramid discovered by the robot would help Egyptologists understand the purpose of the pyramid itself. Egypt: Secret Chambers Revealed: Into the Great Pyramid
58,049. Over a thousand new graves have been found, each one belonging to a pyramid builder. ibid.
58,050. Some of these interior spaces are huge. The Great Gallery is a massive sloped shaft that leads to Khufu’s burial chamber. ibid.
58,051. The discovery that the workers were well treated and that they were divided into gangs revealed how the pyramid planners organised their men. ibid.
58,052. What was on the other side? ... The small sealed chamber was the first new space to be discovered in the Great Pyramid for a hundred and thirty years. ibid.
58,053. After exploring in the western desert of Egypt for the last two decades I have realised that the shape of the pyramid is the only thing that remains in this windy environment. Dr Farouk El-Baz
58,054. The workers are generally thought to have been slaves. But in his excavation Dr Zahi Hawass, General Director of the Giza Pyramids, has unearthed a different story. He has found that the workers lived in a village next to the site. Arthur C Clarke’s Mysterious Universe
58,055. For the first time now we know things about them. We know what kind of desks they had ... We know about their jobs ... Every site of the pyramid had someone to control it. The six hundred skeletons that we found down in the cemetery there show all the workmen had stress in their back ... Building a pyramid was not by slaves. They are buried beside the king. Dr Zahi Hawass
58,056. Pyramids have magic and mystery. Dr Zahi Hawass
58,057. The broad features are fairly clear. We’ve got the barracks where the workmen lived. We’ve got the tombs of the architects. Also for some of the unfinished pyramids we have got ramps which were used to drag the blocks into place. Dr Aidan Dodson, Bristol University
58,058. The big ramp theory is a popular idea of how the pyramid was built. But let’s take a careful look at it. Where are you going to put such a huge ramp? Timewatch: Pyramid: The Last Secret

58,060. Jean Pierre has presented three new theories about the Great Pyramid: he has suggested that the Great Pyramid cracked while it was being built, and presented evidence for that; another of his theories argues that the Grand Gallery was used as a counter-weight system designed to raise huge granite beams, and for that too he has presented evidence; but his third and most important theory – the internal ramp – is still just theory. ibid.
58,061. So years before Jean Pierre’s theory, the French may have found evidence of an internal ramp inside the Great Pyramid. They just didn’t realise it. ibid.
58,062. The three pyramids were a perfect representation of the three stars in Orion’s Belt. Robert Bauval
58,063. There’s a simple reason why so many ancient peoples built pyramids. Before engineers invented the dome, the spire or structural steel a sloping pile was the only structure you could build. Horizon: Atlantis Uncovered, BBC 1999
58,064. The decisions they made about the position of the pyramids were not inspired by a pattern of stars but were the result of the limitations of the site they chose to build on. Horizon: Atlantis Reborn Again, BBC 2000
