Thermal scans of Egypt's Great Pyramid reveal anomalies
ahram.org ^ | Nevine El-Aref

Posted on 11/10/2015 5:18:40 PM PST by BenLurkin

The thermal scanning was made at sunrise as the sun heats the structures from the outside, and then at sunset when the pyramids are cooling down. The speed of the heating and cooling phases was used to uncover "anomalies" such as empty areas in the pyramids, which could be internal air currents or different building materials.

Minister of Antiquities Mamdouh Eldamaty told reporters at a press conference, which was held Monday night at the step of the Great Pyramid plateau, that the result of the infrared thermography scan on the first row of the pyramid’s limestone blocks shows that all the blocks have the same temperature, with the exception of three which are hotter.

Eldamaty said that these three blocks were "different in formation," and that a similar situation was also noted in the middle of the eastern side of the pyramid.

He also said that while inspecting the ground in front the eastern side of the pyramid, scientists found "that there is something like a small passage leading up to the pyramid ground, reaching an area with a different temperature.

...

An Egyptian Egyptologist, who spoke to Ahram Online on condition of anonymity, said that nothing would be found behind the blocks except for fractures, as this is the "mother rock" of the plateau.

He said that when the ancient Egyptians built the pyramids, they inserted the blocks and the casing of the two first rows of the pyramids on the area's mother rock.

>> “anomalies” such as empty areas in the pyramids

Wouldn’t one *expect* to find a big empty area in the middle of a grain storage building?

There are pyramids in my head!
There’s one underneath my bed!
And my lady’s getting cranky.
Every possible location
Has a simple explanation
And it isn’t hanky-panky.

I have read, somewhere in a book,
They improve all your food and your wine.
It’s said that everything you grow in your garden will taste pretty fine,
Instead, all I ever get is a pain in the neck and a
Yap yap yap yap yap yap yap yap!

I’ve consulted all the sages,
I could find in the yellow pages,
But there aren’t many of them...
And the mayan panoramas
On my pyramid pajamas
Haven’t helped my little problem.

I’ve been told someone in the know
Can be sure that his luck is as good as gold,
Money in the bank and you don’t even pay for it if you fold
A dollar in the shape of the pyramid that’s printed on the back.

It’s no lie.
You can keep the edge of a razor as sharp as an eagle’s eye.
You can grow a hedge that is vertically straight, over ten feet high.
All you really need is a pyramid and just a little luck.

I have read, somewhere in a book,
They improve all your food and wine
And I’ve been told,
Someone in the know
Can be sure of his good luck and it’s no lie.
All you really need is a little bit of pyramidic
Help!

It won’t be enough to save Carson...WAY TOO LATE. He’s stepped in it in half a dozen other ways too.

My theory is that the pyramids were built as the
Egyptian answer to not having a single hill or
mountain on the horizon anywhere; just miles and
miles of sand and a lot of flat horizon. They also
doubled as giant tombstones for their kings; and,
yes, some were used for grain storage.

The ones with higher temps are cheap rock.
Someone got a kickback on the construction.
