Giza Pyramids – The Surrounding Theorieshe last standing of the seven wonders of the historical world, the highly regarded pyramids of Giza are perhaps the most well-known and talked about structures in history pages. Those huge monuments have been unsurpassed in height for years to come even long after their creation, and solely to retain their places as a wonder and enigma to everyone who cared to look into it; for it amazes and enthrals everyone with their overwhelming mass, structural design and geometrical perfection. The reality of their build, coupled with their astounding edifice drew out many theories about their origins so much that some people, after different thought process – ad infinitum, resorted to the fact that they could only have been built by aliens. In any case, by carefully examining the prehistoric magnificence, from the fact obvious fact that for the construction of the pyramid with the concept that large stones were broken down and carved with copper chisels from stone quarries and rocks, and carried by carts and slaves or builders, who subsequently dragged and lifted theminto position; there just had to be a theory, an idea that laid behind building the pyramids. You can greatly tell that they were borne out of ceaseless scientific experiments which by the time and age we are currently in – with the technological advancements now, it somewhat sets our civil engineering now to be that of the ancients with the apparent technicality of the architecture predating that of our time. And from therewith, has different theories sprung up all in the attempt to explain how the ancient Egyptians were able to accomplish such feats or what they seemed to know that the other ancients in their era didn’t. The Orion Correlation Theory is a theory hypothesised Robert Bauval. In his theory, the whole idea of the pyramids’ construction was that it was laid on the concept that they were created as a part of a whole; the whole being the ‘master plan’ and that it was constructed to map out some key constellations on the ground. This theory was well elaborated in his book, The Orion theory, he added, stating that the concept of the three pyramids at Giza followed a plan to align together with the three vibrant stars in the constellation of the Orion’s belt: mintaka, alnitak and alnilam. Due to the enigmatic nature of the questions; how were the pyramids built? An engineer called Peter James came up with his own theory in attempt to quench the curiosity thirst of those who asked. His theory came to contradict the already standing conventional beliefs that the pyramids were built by tens of thousands of workers who pulled enormous number of stones all the way the slopes down/up to where they were actually needed. Peter James however claimed that all that would be totally impossible. His theory postulated that contrary to the old beliefs by archeology, the pyramid was built from inside out all from a large mountain – rubbles, rather than the other way round – multiple stones placed carefully on each other – unlike as normally believed. In the book titled On Pyramid Building, by Martin Isler, he posited that the theory that Inde use of levers was implemented to lift pyramid stones from the quarries and placed to build the pyramids and is what is to be believed as to be the only reliable theory. INTERNAL RAMP THEORY is another theory that was developed by a French architect – Jean-Pierre Houdin in attempt to create a perfect theory that was used to construct the pyramids.The idea entailed using an everyday external ramp to build the primary 30 per cent of the pyramid, with an “internal ramp” taking stones up beyond that top. Through all the brainstorming, there is however a fact that still remains; it is that the pyramids were made as tombs, some people say shrines – worship places for noble family members. Without a doubt, the pyramids at Giza remain a wonder to behold.
