Missing Benben Stone
We’ll get to that missing Benben stone in a minute, but first, two surprising facts you may not know about the top of the Great Pyramid: (1) It is alive with electrical energy; and (2) It is flat, not pointed.
Climbing to the top of the Great Pyramid is now illegal, but in the late 1800s British scientist Sir William Siemens made the trek along with Egyptian guides. Upon reaching the summit, he raised a forefinger and felt a prickling sensation at the tip that spread through his hand. He tried to take a celebratory sip of wine from a bottle and received an electric shock on his lips. Curious, Siemens then moistened a piece of newspaper and wrapped it around the wine bottle to create a makeshift Leyden jar, which he held aloft. Lo and behold, sparks of electricity crackled and spat through the air. One of the guides, possibly suspecting witchcraft, tried to seize the bottle – but Siemens pointed the bottle at him, and the ensuing current threw the man backwards to the ground, knocking him unconscious.
Inventor Nikola Tesla was fascinated by the Egyptian pyramids, believing them to be massive energy transmitters. He saw Earth itself as a giant capacitor capable of providing everyone with a limitless supply of electrical energy. In the early 1900s, his team assembled 187-foot-tall Wardenclyffe Tower, with an iron root system that penetrated 300+ feet into the ground. At the top of the tower sat a 55-ton dome of conductive metals. The tower was supposedly tested on several occasions, shooting vast lightning bolts hundreds of feet into the air. It looked as if Tesla was onto something huge. But sadly, funding for Wardenclyffe Tower ran out, ending his lifelong dream of electrifying the entire world.
In 2018, the Journal of Applied Physics reported a theoretical study an international research team had conducted on a model of the Great Pyramid using radio waves of different frequencies. The study concluded that the Great Pyramid can concentrate electromagnetic energy internally and below its base, creating distinct pockets of higher energy. There must be something magical about that pyramid shape. You may recall hearing urban legends about how pyramid-shaped containers can sharpen razor blades and keep food from spoiling.
All of this comes together in Christopher Dunn’s magnificent work The Giza Power Plant. Dunn, a master engineer by profession, challenges the accepted wisdom that the giant pyramids were vast tombs for powerful pharaohs – especially since none have ever been found to contain mummies, treasures, or hieroglyphics. Instead, drawing on 20 years of research and reverse engineering, he explains in detail how they were constructed to convert Earth’s vibrations into clean energy that powered a technologically advanced ancient civilization.
WHERE’S THE POINTY THING?
In Egyptian mythology, Benben was the mound that arose from primordial waters at the dawn of creation. The Benben stone, or pyramidion, is the top stone of a pyramid. Similar pointed capstones are found at the top of Egyptian obelisks. Many such stones, often inscribed and polished, appear in museums around the world.
Yes, the Great Pyramid is flat at the top, with about 30 feet of walking space. But it is hard to believe there was not a Benben stone at one time, especially knowing what we now know about the unusual electrical field present. Could it be that the Benben was an all-powerful transmitting device, made of something other than stone? Perhaps it was gold-plated? Unfortunately, unless a 30-foot-wide Benben stone turns up at a garage sale, we will probably never know.
To celebrate the new Millennium, the Egyptian government planned to complete the Great Pyramid by lowering a new 30-foot cap onto the summit by helicopter. However, officials canceled the plan in December 1999. They cited potential terrorism concerns, but many wondered whether their real fear was the possibility of unleashing unknown electromagnetic powers and reawakening some ancient cosmic force.
