A pyramid is the strongest structure we know, isn't it? I can't think of what would work better in supporting it's own weight in whatever size is
Because the taller, then the bigger the square base. And it would seem that a natural line would be the one to follow, to the top.
Of course, even the Egyptians had to perfect their architecture, as exampled by Djozer's step pyramid!
But they have been standing a long long time at Giza. The last of the 7 ancient wonders by a long shot! I don't think it was their size or
location--the others were just as massive and earthquakes are not a rare thing in that area. The hanging gardens excluded, I just don't know why the
pyramids have endured so long past the others.
Their knowledge must surely be something integral the essence of this planet--their culture and history, in general, has endured intact from it's
start, it seems. We wouldn't have any where near the perspective on ancient history if not for their dynastic obsession and their idea of post
mortem diefication of Pharoahs--all down the line! Even after losing their throne to the Hyskos they actually took it back! That is astounding to
I think that the type of men that came out of there were the lifeblood of our present age's history--on an individual basis. But I think that
probably in the last age they were of a type we cannot fully understand. Mighty men of renown! Giants, both literally and ethereally. What we know
now is probably like a fading shadow or mist...
