The oldest pyramid in Egypt, the Pyramid of Djoser at Saqqara, is being destroyed by the very company the Egyptian government has hired to restore it. The roughly 4,600-year-old structure has been in trouble since an earthquake hit the region in 1992, but in a difficult political and economic climate for the country, those now tasked with preserving the pyramid are doing more harm than good. Egyptian activists claim the company, Shurbagy, doesn’t even have the necessary experience to be undertaking the work in the first place, and they have launched a campaign against the Minister of Antiquities, Mamdouh al-Damaty, claiming a “full-fledged crime” has been committed.
The crime in question is the breach of building regulations related to the restoration of ancient structures. Amir Gamal, a representative of the ‘Non-stop Robberies’ movement, states: “Technically, the company and officials of the Supreme Council of Antiquities committed a full-fledged crime. New walls were built outside the pyramid as if the pyramid were a modern construction, which is opposite to international standards of restoration, which prevents adding more than 5 percent of construction to antiquities if necessary.” Furthermore, the additions are putting pressure on the structure, putting it at risk of collapse.

Greetings- Perhaps someone w/an interest in pyramids can answer this....
There is/was a train of thought/theory from somewhere that stated if the pyramids and other obelisks were knocked down then "humanity" would experience a flood of consciousness.. The author(s) opined that the pyramids/obelisks are actually "sapping the energy" of the human race. The builders, advanced beings, erected these to use against Us and keep Us as "slaves"..
This included ALL the pyramids on Earth, they are all 'energy centers' that keeps TPTB in 'charge' and makes it easier for 'Us' to forget who We are. This is why 'the builders' placed pyramids ALL over the Earth along LeyLines
I checked yesterday in reference to another thread and all I can find now has forked off into a "religious fight" (again).. The author(s) I'm referring to kept religion™ out of their work..
Now it could be that I was 'imagining it' Does this remind anybody of anything?

restoration is a joke no matter how you look at it
all it does is bury evidence and make it harder to find later when more adequate technology is available
if history on this matter has taught me anything its that restorations destroy more history than they preserve
