Wow, awesome find, I was trying to find it through references aswell but had no luck. I've done some searches on the book but really found nothing at all, it would be a fascinating read.
All i managed to find was an amazon link: www.amazon.co.uk...
But no luck:
We don't know when or if this item will be back in stock.

from laying inside the box and performing Egyptian sounds, what occurs is that the box amplifies the sound, it made it sound cirucular or spiral around me- like it twisted and turned around my body for a long time

The Emerald Tablet of Thoth indicates he is the one who built the pyramids.

It had long been known that neither this southern shaft nor its counterpart in the Chamber’s northern wall had any exit on the outside of the Great Pyramid. In addition, and equally inexplicably, neither had originally been fully cut through. For some reason the builders had left the last five inches of stone intact in the last block over the mouth of each of the shafts, thus rendering them invisible and inaccessible to any casual intruder.
Why? To make sure they would never be found? Or to make sure that
they would be found, some day, under the right circumstances?
The notion that there might have been an intention from the outset to
stimulate such investigations would seem quite implausible if the final
upshot of the discovery and exploration of the shafts had been a deadend.
Instead, as we have seen, a door was found—a sliding, portcullis
door with curious metal fittings and an enticing gap at its base beneath
which the laser-spot projected by Gantenbrink’s robot was seen to disappear entirely ...

The idea is that the original function was used when the pyramid was truncated or unfinished at the level of the King's chamber at which point the shafts were opened and could be used to sight stars. The descending shaft (entrance), Grand Gallery and the "air" shafts could all be used to time stellar alignments making the pyramid an extremely accurate observatory. There are theories as to what stars align with what shafts and when these alignments occurred none of which I have checked myself so I don't know how accurate these claims are.
