Maybe it was the great flood ?

on this foto you can see vertical lines from the tura limestone facing stones that were dismantled and rolled down in the middle ages..

Probably any meager rainfall the pyramid received collected in the lower levels and the drying phase caused the limestone to crack and lose its adhesion to the underlying stone. The earthquake might have accelerated the process.

Well the all seeing eye watches and controls everything that the globalists do.

Many loved Horus similar to many now loving the Dollar.

The capstones are allegedly links to other realms in a spiritual sense so they are like elevated above the physical world. The all seeing eye is also elevated.

The limestone was mined in the early 1800s I think.

The top layers were just too high to remove safely.


The outer stones (casing)

A new method by Franz Löhner

A special visual impact was created by using white outer Tura stones. Franz Löhner postulates, that these outer stones were an integral part of the pyramid and not only a mantle or shell added. 

The Tura stone

 Importance of the outer stones

The Giza pyramids must have made an incredible visual impact - at the edge of the desert three abstract geometrical symbols were standing, huge luminous white triangles which were reflecting the blinding light of the sun!

At the moment, when the construction of the pyramid was finished, the surface of the pyramid presented an immaculate, even, plane and steep surface with no entrances and no possibility to climb up. The white Tura stone, the builders had chosen for the outer stones must have been dazzling. To produce this visual impact, the surface of the pyramid had to be unblemished, seamless and very smooth.

To achieve this, all joints between the stones had to be as small as possible and filled with mortar, so they were nearly invisible. This was done with an impressive precision as can be observed on the lower courses of the pyramid of Khufu, where not even a knife can be slid into the crevasses between the stones.

It was very important, that the outer surface should not shift, crack or even fall down in pieces. So not only the layer of stones at the outside, but the next inner layers had to planned precisely as well. The outer Tura stones were layed in such a pattern, that the stones would interlock and the masonry would be tied together with long header (or bond) stones. If core stones should shift and change their position, this would have been seen on the outside, because the surface would crack and the intended visual impression of smoothness and perfection would be destroyed.

The fact, that even in the 12th century most of the outer surface stones still existed (observed by Abd al-Latif) shows, how lasting and admirable the Egyptian architectures built. The beautiful outer stones were very popular and were removed from the pyramids bit by bit and used as building material for mosques and houses in Cairo. But even in 1639 the Oxford astronomy professor John Greaves wrote, that the whole face of Khafre's pyramid except the southern side was still entirely intact, but at that time the stones of the pyramid of Khufu had already been removed [5].

The lower structure of the pyramid on the dollar bill is a similar exposed step pattern, so that is a match.
The smooth topmost Tura stones also appear similar to the levitating capstone on the dollar bill.

More consistent thermal equilibrium could explain the upper part of the pyramid retaining the Tura stones.
The top is a smaller volume that doesn't have a deep core structure to cause differences in thermal expansion.

Some day the AI search engines are going to be able to link the "prior art" connections that remain hidden today.
