Storyline

An apocryphal view on the pyramids, starting in awe at the amazing achievement of the Pharanoic architecture and sculpture, most specially at Gizeh, given Cheops's pyramid's size, weight, incredibly precise carving, four pairs of slightly shifted half sides, stunningly precisely measured shapes and symmetry. Then it questions and challenges conventional Egyptology beliefs, which it calls unproven or even impossible to verify, such as the absence of machines, a wharf duration of only 20 years or accidental equinox-orientation. Next it elaborates the theory that other major pyramid technology sites in Precolombian America, Easter Island and China can't coincidentally lie on two lines intersecting at Gizeh, even if not contemporaneous and without known contacts in their ages, and have several improbable things in common, like some of their cultures. Elaborate mathematical theories and measurements indicate the Egyptians must have known some astronomy, pi and the golden number, maybe even... Written by KGF Vissers

Phar Out.
19 September 2013 | by ldnw44144See all my reviews

You have an interest in Egyptology, of course you do, doesn't everybody. This is the daddy of Egyptian documentaries, it is filled with so many facts & figures, especially about the Great Pyramid of Giza, it is stellar geek-viewing.

This production isn't your standard History Channel, or National Geographical Channel regurgitation. This presentation reveals construction intricacies, graphical connections, the golden ratio, suggestions of climatic change that naturally occur by way of the North Magnetic Pole, and a mathematical number that equates to the speed of light.

Be taken aback.
