This is one of those stories we simply have to blog about, after all, this website is called "giza death star," and is named after the first three books that launched my career in this strange world of "alternative research." While a complete review of my hypothesis and argument would not be possible here, suffice it to say that when one argues that the Great Pyramid may have been some sort of sophisticated weapon, that one is ipso facto arguing that it is (1) a machine and (2) not everything there is to know about the structure is in fact known about it. It is, so to speak, a kind of open-ended hypothesis, subject to all  the strengths and weaknesses of such theories.

This past week, however, there have been a raft of stories on what appears to be a significant heat anomaly inside the Great Pyramid of Giza; consider these:

Mysterious anomalies discovered in Giza pyramids

‘Heat anomaly’ found in Great Pyramid of Giza, could be secret chamber

Thermal scan of Giza pyramids may point to hidden tombs

Now, while the reader is probably having a good chuckle at the fact that Republithug presidential candidate Ben Carson's suggestion that the Great Pyramid was usedto store grain, this author would remind the reader that this author's own hypothesis is even wilder and crazier: it was a weapon. Indeed, years ago in connection with that idea, I suggested there may be hidden chambers in the structure that we do not yeat know about, and the idea of hidden chambers in the Great Pyramid has also been suggested by other authors.

Enter the recent anomaly, and for the purposes of our discussion in this brief blog, I was to focus on the last of the above-linked articles, the one from the U.K.'s The Guardian, and upon these statements:

"Anomalies have been found in Egypt’s Khufu pyramid two weeks into a thermal scanning project aimed at discovering the famed pharaonic monument’s secrets including possible hidden burial chambers, officials have said.

"Operation Scan Pyramids began on 25 October to search for new chambers inside four pyramids including Khufu’s, the tallest, also known as the Great Pyramid of Giza.

"Two weeks on the team of architects and scientists from Egypt, France, Canada and Japan said in a joint statement they had observed “thermal anomalies” on the monuments, including on the Khufu pyramid.

"'The teams have concluded the existence of several thermal anomalies that were observed on all monuments during the heating up or the cooling down phases,' the statement said.

“'To explain such anomalies a lot of hypothesis and possibilities could be drawn up: presence of voids behind the surface, internal air currents.'

In particular, it said, an “impressive” anomaly was found “on the eastern side of the Khufu pyramid at ground level”.

Thermal scanning of the massive structure indicated that some of the limestone blocks were hotter than others." (Emphases added)

One notes first the bow to traditional Egyptology: they're still looking for those secret burial chambers, the absence of which in the case of the two large pyramids of Giza continues to haunt Egyptological orthodoxy. Perhaps they'll actually find them (or make them up, Col. Vyse style, with some conveniently discovered "remains" in a secret chamber, much like the British colonel conveniently found "hieroglyphs" conclusively proving the Great Pyramid was indeed built by the pharoah whom Egyptology insists built it... oh, and don't bother about the fact that Vyse dynamited his way into the so-called "relieving chambers" above the king's chamber to find said hieroglyphs, which, lo and behold, were conveniently discovered on all the walls of the relieving chambers except the wall he had just blasted through...  yes, folks, it's really that bad!)

I have to be honest, so goofy have been the gymnastics of Egyptology (they're almost as bad as the die-hard evolutionist confronted by problems in that theory), I'd be strongly disinclined to believe any announcement of the discovery of a "secret burial chamber."

But leaving all that aside, for the moment, what intrigues here is the fact that "some of the limestone blocks were hotter than others," and this in an expedition using thermal imaging to look for internal chambers as yet unknown. What this implies is an internal heat source, and it is this possibility that throws the articles about this anomaly into a cocked hat, for while such an explanation is the most apparent and logical, it is the explanation few of the articles entertain in so many words. Indeed, they appear positively to avoid talking about that possibility in favor of "air currents", "voids behind the surface," and a "lot of hypotheses and possibilities" that "could be drawn up," except, of course, a heat source. Indeed, if one looks closely at the "air currents" and "voids", these avoid the problem, for if air currents in a void are responsible for some limestone being hotter than others, then there has to be a source for the heat of those air currents and voids, and we're back to square one.

Of course, we're told little here that is truly useful, which makes forming a hypothesis all the more difficult. For example, does this heat anomaly persist through the day and nighttime hours at more or less a uniform temperature, or does it rise and fall in a manner that suggests some connection to the hours of the day or night(which would make the air currents theory a little more plausible). If steady, then that raises the stakes considerably, for this would seem to indicate an internal heat source, of more or less consistent output over time. And, of course, if it is just now being noticed in the Great Pyramid, and if this has been there all along, then one possibility immediately becomes evident: radioactivity. Indeed, as I pointed out years ago in The Giza Death Star, the dating of mortar between the sones of the Great Pyramid yielded a strange anomaly: the mortar at the top of the structure was older than that at the bottom, and that, I suggested, may indicate a possible radioactive source inside the pyramid itself.

And that, of course, would pose a problem: a radioactive chamber? to bury a pharaoh? in a building aligned with optical precision? with "parabolic" faces? with dimensional measures that are analogues to some fundamental components of local celestial geometry?

Face it. It's not a tomb. It's a machine.

See you on the flip side...

    What no Germans on the team? Now that alone is fishy if you ask me. Guess someone wasn’t invited to the latest propaganda party.

    The heat signature…still cooling down after its extensive war tour of the galaxy. A machine a weapon …a ship?

    Several years ago, there was a TV documentary about an architect (I believe) who was obsessed with finding out the meaning of the ‘Khufu’ pyramid. The show was fairly impressive, including finding wear marks on a stone at the top of the Grand Stairway that could indicate hauling of something up/down.

    The most intriguing aspect in the documentary was the architect musing on how the pyramid building-blocks could not have been physically moved around the upper levels of an external, spiral ramp. So, the man speculated on a pre-planned, internal ramp winding upwards, inside the pyramid structure.

    In the man’s questing, he found corroboration in a French sonar (I believe) study of the pyramid. The French scientists showed him an unreleased ‘picture’ – which was shown ‘on air’ – that fairly-clearly showed a spiraling, ascending ‘void’ inside the pyramid. The French had not released it because it had not made any sense to them. The man’s theory fit the ‘picture’ perfectly…

    So, could we be seeing the ‘ground entrance’ to the spiraling passageway in these infrared images?

    (I tried to find that TV show, but could not. Too many pyramid references. If any reader can identify that show, please post it here. Thanks.)

      I saw it too. had a copy archived. if i had the time, I’d find it and watch it again. I think it’s in this search list.

      It’s the most plausible theory I’ve seen. It’s easily engineered using log ramps. It was a good video and brought other ideas that made much more sense to me after seeing more on Tesla’s Wycliffe layout. It’s a giant stone version of Wycliffe. The water channels underneath provide the same orgone grounding and generation as Wycliffe. Energy generator. Yep. Weapon. Yep. Crop fertility enhancer. Yep. Think it was the only one of its type? Doubt it. Probably the biggest and best so far found. Makes one wonder about the other apparently older and bigger pyramids not yet copped to by mr global’s media. Think it was in Bosnia, right?

      I think that video might have had Robert Bavaal in it and they interviewed an old guide who grew up at the base of the pyramid. The guy claimed his family went back generations with the pyramid and that he swam in those water channels as a kid. Given what others like Robert Schoch has come out with on sphinx and pyramid possibilities, Joseph’s theories are infinitely more likely than mr global’s egyptologists’ dogma. Apparently the pyramid wasn’t just close to the Nile at one time. The ramp up the pyramid went into the Nile. Seems the river migrated a few miles over the millenia. Just as the whole are at one time prior to and after the construction, was a severely wet jungle.

      Lot’s of orgone.

      Gracias all. Have a good night.

      • zendogbreath on November 15, 2015 at 7:37 pm

        btw, we’ve all seen Scott Onstott’s Secrets in Plain Sight, right? He’s an architect who caught fever from Dan Brown. Pretty sure is was Onstott who put me on to the fact that one of Giza’s corners (or very close) is on the exact lattitude (maybe longitude) that factors out to many decimals to be an exact multiple of ten of the speed of light in meters per second (or similar measure). crazy stuff. didn’t buy it until i googled both for myself.


        • zendogbreath on November 15, 2015 at 8:01 pm

          not sure what’s up with the site again. comment above was an add on to a reply i did to goshawks above. don’t have time to retype it. will look later to see if it comes back on it’s own. in it i mentioned a youtube search for “pyramid internal ramp” that lists quite a few vids. pretty sure i saw it and it included robert bavaal. the internal ramp is clearly the best theory forwarded on construction method. that or a similar video also outlined the underground waterways and the pyramids previous proximity to the Nile. It was a big stone version of tesla’s wycliffe. weapon. yep. generator. yep. seed fertility enhancer. yep. lot’s o yeps. i mentioned robert schoch too. these are all good jumping off points. thank you for the patience and more later.

      • goshawks on November 17, 2015 at 5:05 pm

        Zendogbreath, thanks for the youtube search. It was the National Geographic Channel documentary (c.2008) with Architect Jean-Pierre Houdin.

        Excerpt: youtube dot com/watch?v=lasCXujNPfs (2,190 comments!)
        Full: youtube dot com/watch?v=Ws4O5LOCI68 (914 comments!)

        In the documentary, the ‘entrance’ to the internal ramp is shown at ground level. It will be interesting to see if the ‘hot blocks’ are covering the ramp entrance.

        The ancient-entrance to the ‘Khufu’ pyramid (not the ‘forced’ one) is way up & centered on a face, was covered by a pivoting stone, and the passageway-accessed went straight-down to the subterranean chamber – bypassing the ‘Kings’ and ‘Queens’ chambers. It will be interesting to see if the spiral ramp – if there – also bypasses those or was a VIP access.

        (BTW, I believe Comments are temporarily ‘disappearing’ because of their inclusion of links. Automated deletion, human review, restoration after ‘judging’. After I made mine ‘non-links’ by inserting the ‘dot’, I have never had a ‘disappearing’ Comment. Spread the word…)

    • mikea on November 15, 2015 at 8:03 pm

      I remember the doco you are talking about. It sounded very plausible at the time but I also remember strong debate over it dismissing it as BS by the alternate theory community and I have never heard anything else about it.

      • goshawks on November 15, 2015 at 9:28 pm

        Yes, that ‘theory’ had the unfortunate result of both the orthodox position AND the alternate theory community. It is not surprising, thatit has not been heard-from since. But wrong? We’ll see.

        So, it will come-down-to what is ‘actually there’ after further investigation. I hope that the ‘going for it’ is not stretched-out over decades by the hidden-hand…

        • zendogbreath on November 16, 2015 at 7:36 pm

          let’s see how much i can rewrite from last night. the docu mentioned last night was excellent. they showed a plan that easily splained the construction method in the simplest method possible. the ramp was well constructed and run with logs and stones turning the corner through balance and low friction at each of the corners in the ascent up the pyramid. the docu even went as far as showing a crumbling corner of the pyramid that partially revealed an area beneath that is almost certainly the ramp.

          it was this or another docu that featured robert bavaal and others. in particular one other was a guide at the pyramid who’s family went back generations as protectors and/or builders of the pyramid. he grew up there and swam in the waters beneath in channels similar to what’s set up under and powered Wycliffe.

          robert schoch and others uncovered excellent evidence that the Nile formerly ran closer to the pyramid – as in the pyramid had a ramp into the Nile. the pyramid and sphinx are much older than the egyptologists posit. they were also in a rainforest.

          so the orgone power that tesla used at wycliffe is probably under around and throughout the pyramid. probably all the pyramids. makes one wonder about older bigger currently denied pyramids like bosnia.

          so is anyone here familiar with scott onstott?

          • goshawks on November 17, 2015 at 9:24 pm

            (Replied to you several posts above.)

            The main thing that I use in initial-sorting of pyramid theories is whether the ‘use’ justifies the sheer amount of planning, labor, and materials put into the ‘device’. The ‘tomb’ theory falls-out immediately under this guideline. Christopher Dunn’s ‘power plant’ theory falls-in, but with reservations. I do not believe that the ‘sighting shafts’ were used to dump chemicals into the King or Queen Chambers for a chemical reaction. That would be ‘overbuilding’ of a simple process to an immense proportion. That said, Dunn has absolutely convinced me that the ‘Khufu’ pyramid was designed as a machine, not a tomb.

            (Joseph’s “Death Star” speculations are interesting, but so-far lack physical evidence. Perhaps we will see ‘storage rooms’ for high-technology items, if the ‘hot blocks’ are removed.)

          • goshawks on November 17, 2015 at 9:43 pm

            There are other, more speculative, uses of the ‘Khufu’ pyramid. For instance, why was the King/Queen area blocked-off (literally) from visitors? I could see this as providing a stable-point for time-travelers, for instance. Until that area was forcibly-opened to the public, one could ‘pop-in’ with NO chance of intersecting anything/anyone physical – over thousands of years. (Indeed, I could see the ‘opening’ of those chambers as a way to discourage time-travel through that ‘point’.)

            Same reasoning for dimensional-travelers, Star Trek transporter-style travelers, portals, etc…

  4. magus1979 on November 15, 2015 at 2:53 pm

    Correct me if I’m wrong, but isn’t there a theory that the Ark of the Covenant was once housed in the Great Pyramid, and that the Ark itself was thought to be radioactive or contain some type of strange energy source? Wouldn’t this theory in itself go against all modern theories on the Pyramids?

  5. DownunderET on November 15, 2015 at 2:04 pm

    That big pile of stones has fascinated everyone since forever, and nobody in the main stream quackademia has nailed it. Oh yeah, a building to house Egyptian pharaohs bodies, well eh there ain’t any. So what’s left here is something humanity has pondered over, and yet, Christopher Dunn and Joseph have been “panned” over their theories. Imagine Schwaller de Lubicz being interviewed on the History Channel!!!, nuff said.

    • 8thdegreeofj on November 18, 2015 at 11:46 pm

      Sorry folks, forgot to tell everyone that I got a vendors license on the Giza plateau recently. Yeah, that’s my pizza oven over there by Hufu’s pyramid. Them is some hot rocks, bakes the crust and melts cheese real well. BS & Anchovies is my favorite. m’hmm

  6. Robert Barricklow on November 15, 2015 at 9:34 am

    Reminds me of the new 9/11 theory getting a lot of buzz:
    9/11, the largest molten aluminum explosion.
    When you examine them, it’s as imaginative as the JFK magic bullet,
    or, for that mater, the recently “published” Giza heat anomalies.

  7. WalkingDead on November 15, 2015 at 9:18 am

    With any luck, they may find a room containing the resonators which fit in the rectangular recesses on the walls. That would definitely put an end to the “tomb” nonsense.

    • WalkingDead on November 15, 2015 at 11:39 am

      Calculating the operational frequency would only require the center to center distance between the resonator mounts. Wonder if anyone has ever done this calculation.

  8. marcos anthony toledo on November 15, 2015 at 8:57 am

    Christopher Dunn Giza Power Plant theory anyone or the weapon from Arthur C. Clarke “Earthlight” novel. Take your pick thou the weapon in the novel is located on the Moon. The pyramids tombs get real they’re too big out in the open and the Egyptians buried their dead out of sight from beginning to end.

  9. basta on November 15, 2015 at 7:02 am

    They’ve identified three outside blocks at the very base of the Great Pyramid which are significantly warmer than the rest of the structure. It seems pretty obvious that — since no one ever found the actual entrance and they blasted their way in initially — that this is the real, hidden entrance. They are right at ground level, it bears repeating. Hopefully it won’t take ages and massive committees to agree to remove these blocks and see what’s behind them. I fully expect they will find a shaft, but headed where is the more interesting question.

    And yes, the whole King Tut’s tomb nonsense is annoying. I’ve been inside and the interior is ancient civil engineering, not ceremonial architecture, and it is quite evident that the structure had a clear, utilitarian purpose — whatever that might be.

  10. Lost on November 15, 2015 at 7:02 am

    Heat anomalies were one of the things Wilhelm Reich repeatedly demonstrated with his orgone accumulators. And other parties have repeated his experiments.

    No reason that without some internal source of heat the Great Pyramid couldn’t be doing something similar. Indeed an orgone accumulator is clearly coupling with the aether in a manor similar to the idea that the pyramids were built as machines.
