MTOK7: But can anyone shed any light on this grand architect?
SC: The short answer is that no one really knows who the 'grand architect' of the Giza pyramids was. The orthodox view is that each successive
pharaoh had his own architect who designed the pyramid to the king's particular requirement. The first pyramid in Egypt - the Step Pyramid of Djoser
- was designed by the vizier Imhotep. In fact, in the Building Texts in the Temple of Horus at Edfu is this inscription:
"They were built according to an architectural plan that came in a codex from the heavens at Saqqara in the days of Imhotep."
My personal view is that the structures at Giza clearly conform to a unified design based upon the stars of Orion's Belt. I do not simply mean the
layout of the Gizamids in correlation with their equivalent belt stars but ALSO the actual base dimensions of the Giza pyramids can be shown to derive
from the belt star asterism. You can see this here:
The Giza-Orion Blueprint
And, of course, it stands to reason that if the entire Giza site (i.e. ALL the pyramids and the Sphinx) was the pre-planned objective of the Old
Kingdom builders (the other Old Kingdom pyramids serving as the learning curve before implementing Giza) then it stands to reason that these
structures could NOT have been built as tombs for pharaohs or their queens - at least, this was not the ORIGINAL intention or purpose for these
structures (although they may well have been appropriated as such by later dynasties).
My own view is that the structures at Giza was the GOAL of the Old Kingdom builders - a unified design - and that the original purpose of the entire
Giza site was to serve as an 'Afterlife Machine'. You can read more on this here:
