Great Pyramid: A Personal Story4319850x 08. 08. 2013 1 Reader
In Egypt, I was a tourist in 2003, 2005 and last time in 2011. As for any tourist who has definitely visited the famous temples, tombs and pyramids in Egypt.
I want to tell this story to my very personal encounter with Giza and specifically the Great Pyramid. I write about how I experienced and felt it.
When I saw the Pyramids for the first time in 2003, it was really a shock mixed with great inner crying. The shock of being really huge and visible for miles away, for Cairo is mostly flat. Cry because it's all destroyed and degraded to a tourist attraction in the most difficult caliber.
Looking at the pyramids, it's an impressive look at the technology and intelligence of the builders that you barely get along with the modern reason. Looking back in the opposite direction is scary. You see a large, low-gray house with no roofs covered in smog. It is the suburb of central Cairo, which closely touches the pyramid area. Year after year, it is a hippo, because the area is expanding. This is also related to ubiquitous waste and related smell. In the neighborhood of the Sphinx and one of the temples, there is a huge plaid chair that serves for evening light and music shows. (I have always forgiven myself for this pastime.)
In 2003, the pyramids built road infrastructure so that tourists did not climb the legs and could reach the pyramid at the foot of the bus directly from the main gate. It's about 500 meters. In addition, 2005 began building a new entrance gate with cash registers and a large car park about 300 meters from the Great Pyramid.
The scenario of a regular tourist, which is simple here. They'll bring you to the gate where you have a fairly long queue on rather expensive tickets (compared to others). The entrance to the site was in 2011 80 LE with the possibility to visit one pyramid, except the Great Pyramid. There is an extra admission 100 LE and a limited number of visitors incl. special opening hours. Then they will take you by bus to the pyramids in the desert. You have great views of all three pyramids. By not seeing so much on Cairo itself, which is slightly lower than the pyramids. Then ask where you want and most tourists say there's nothing to see yet, and that's enough. Only a few enthusiasts who bought a ticket to the Great Pyramid are instructing guides that they want to be touched! It's a distinctive heat, so the others are saying that we can not let it go too ...
I was in the Great Pyramid on each of my journeys. It was always accompanied by other circumstances. In 2003, I was there with my parents and a bunch of friends who were all clear. He puts it up, what's his name - yeah Cheops, and working on thousands of slaves. There is clear evidence in the temples. I've seen it. So some theories about aliens just tell the bastards.
At that time, I thought I would go back there sometime and with someone less padded. I did that in 2005. Then I got into the pyramid with a friend and we were really lucky because they sold us the last two tickets. So I experienced the situation when I was about 5 minutes alone, because my friend did not stop there. 2011 was 6 enthusiasts who also made a solo show.
But let's go back to the beginning.
The path to the Great Pyramid runs along its slopes where the perimeter blocks, which are really huge (in height over 2 to 3 meters), are stepped out. You are not original. They cut them out for the tourists. After these you scramble to the entrance, which left us a bunch of thieves under the baton of chalifa Al-Ma'mun sometime in 820 of our time. The corridor is about 20 meters long and roughly cut straight into the pyramid. You get into the room from which you can enter the corridor, which will take you directly to the lowest chamber. There is a grille, so the only other option is a few stairs cut into stones and then a narrow shaft about 1,5 × 1,5 meter, in which they are as cold on the ground as in the henhouse. There is always one person in one direction, so you must always wait for it to climb up or down. This passage is about 30 meters long, so nothing for people with claustrophobia. Following is the famous Great Gallery.
The large gallery is a truly monumental space. If you look into the ceiling, it's like a gate to heaven. Exit the galleries as a hiking tour. Although you do not have to have four, you can hold the railing, but even in the rough air it is a very demanding performance, especially when one is not trained on the local climate. During the exit you can repeatedly confirm the old known truth: neither the nail nor the razor blade nor the knife ... just between the cracks do not make anything. Rather, it seems like the cracks are being painted by someone else to make it good it looked.
Although it does not find a single ancient Egyptian inscription in the Great Pyramid, there are countless modern graffiti. They are engraved directly into the stones. Classic type inscriptions: I was here! Fantomas, LP 2007, A + R, etc. Of course in all languages, including Czech.
When you handle the gallery's output, there are about three last steps in the form of kramli squeezed into a meter of stone and you are on the access road to the so-called royal chamber. You still have to walk about 5 meter in front. There is an interspace in which you can straighten for a moment.
When I was there for the second time, I realized there were guide grooves that apparently served for the three huge stones that closed the entrance to the chamber. Unfortunately, this is unfortunately long gone.
Hurray! We are in the bowels of the Great Pyramid !!! Hmm, but there is nothing too !? Is that why we crawled up here? The same way we have to go back. That's about nothing.
This is the way most tourists face, who are going through really demanding exits here. In addition, you have quite a chance to dump, so do not take anything white or festive - even those fools were there. J
That space amazed me. It's a very earthy place. I have a lot of it every time settled and I felt the enormous power of that space that is not at full power but still works in some economical or emergency regime.
When the athletes looking for some attraction leave, there will be a total silence and inner peace. It feels that there is something beyond the normal understanding of man. Something we are not used to today, and we can not grasp it with our commonly used 5 senses.
One of the first things I dismissed was the theory of the tomb. It's just different here. After I attended 3's visit to the real royal tombs on the west bank of the Nile and one of the mines of the royal scribe, there is absolutely no energy. In the tomb, it feels like it was for that purpose. It's the same as when you walk through the cemetery or a church full of crypt.
That space is in itself odd. You are in a block where there are bare walls (I do not count the contemporary folk creativity of tourists and natives). Everything is absolutely smooth and somehow alien. The only thing that disturbs that distinctive character is the opening into space a bath, which stands at the northern wall of the room. For collectors of sensational hieroglyphs there is nothing to be found here, so I am not surprised that many will come and leave again. For a human being, it is a meeting at the level of a forest man with a mainframe - you just do not understand, you do not understand - you stare bluntly into the void and try to catch something. Something you still would understand.
Closer to the entrance are the two well-known shafts. One is to the west and the other to the east. The eastern is broken, as our modern Egyptologists tried to try and plug the fan. In 2011, it did not work the same way as the camera system. The wall around the eastern shaft is really badly damaged. They obviously had to take a very strong caliber.
When it was no longer what to look at and what to feel, I tried to cover everything in what we generally call 6. meaning. Touching the wall is a very special sensation, not just physical. They are perfectly smooth and the joints almost unnoticeable, but you feel the extra energy they are eliminating.
In 2005, I took advantage of the unique opportunity of that short loneliness in space, and stood in the middle of the room in the position of a five-pointed star. It felt as if the special energy of the pyramid was almost immediately passed through me - very strong, very dense and very grounding and yet somewhat reassuring. I stayed for about 5 minutes before the voices of a group of three women who cheerfully talked with a language I did not understand. When they appeared in the chamber, it occurred to me that they were from Turkey. Whether it was true I do not know. The first thing they were heading was a bathtub, and one of them, after a brief heccation from the others, lay in it. Something quietly enraged in me that I did not allow it and left.
In 2011, I returned to the crime scene with a bunch of similarly tuned people. We were lucky enough that no one else was in space for a moment. I was determined that I was going to get into the bathtub this time and the others had to do my bushes.
The experience was simply phenomenal. It really understands it until you try it on your own. I measure 193 cm and it was just me. I estimate that the internal length of the tub is dimensioned on 2 meters. I had it with my boots just so. Landscape at ease. I just closed my eyes, felt a great deal of pressure on my chakra and my legs. At the same time I only touched the floor. It was very intense. I felt that if I stayed longer here, it would take me to another state of consciousness. I also returned that the bath was not in its original place. (To be in the middle.) Without words, I invited another to try it too. Then we compared our feelings and experiences, there was a clear consensus.
Then we were still trying to meditate in the middle of the room. Unfortunately, a further dose of tourists was poured into the area. But it was interesting that they also tried with a pyramid communicate. I infer from this that more and more people are trying to understand its original nature and purpose.
There was a return to daylight and tropical heat in the same way.
In the Great Pyramid, they are not allowed to shoot or filming officially. But when you're inside, no one checks it, so YT can find videos from the adventurous way through the pyramid. The following video shows an exit to the so-called royal chamber and queen's chamber.
The so-called the Queen's chamber and the underground I personally did not see. They are not always accessible. On the video right from the beginning you will see the shaft to the original entrance to the pyramid.
