The Daily Mail has hopped onto a story about research being done on what electromagnetic properties Khufu’s pyramid at Giza might have. As it is built of limestone the fact that it has any would seem somewhat far fetched and indeed some of the claims made — that it concentrates electromagnetic energy – are projections made using conjectural “data” to a certain degree. So one supposes that Graham Hancock et al will run with these claims as proof of alien visitation and that this represents some form of advanced technology. Though if you could build an interstellar craft, likely, most of the components are miniaturized and a wave concentrator that’s 481 feet high would not be especially useful. And if it was – where’re the other ones?
But who knows! The article begins:
“The remarkable electromagnetic properties of the Great Pyramid of Giza could soon inspire nanoparticle designs for highly-efficient sensors and solar cells.
“Scientists have discovered the famous pyramid concentrates electric and magnetic energy into its internal chambers and below its base, creating pockets of higher energy.
“If this concentrating effect is able to be recreated on a nanoscale size, it could lead to a wave of new, more efficient sensors and solar cells, the researchers claim.
“While the 481-foot pyramid built thousands of years ago for Pharaoh Khufu has long drawn intrigue for its purported mythical qualities, the study is among a growing body of research attempting to finally get to the bottom of its physical properties. “
