Lost Technologies of the Great Pyramid

Hi,

I recently published my book called:
Lost Technologies of the Great Pyramid.

It is a new understanding as to how the Great Pyramid was built!

The link for the Trailer is:
http://www.thepump.org

Discription:
Transcending the fables and misinformation of modern Egyptology, this book provides a detailed description of how the Great Pyramid was really built! New discoveries of lost technologies used to build this massive wonder are the focus of this book! Independent researcher, lecturer and author, Steven Myers explains what really happened as the Great Pyramid was built. He describes the fascinating and unique building process from the initial surveying, all the way to the placement of the capstone! The Original Builders were geniuses who possessed advanced understanding which they used to develop sophisticated technology. Using these advanced technologies they were able to create the wonder we call the Great Pyramid. Extensively illustrated, this book describes how the massive stones were moved from the quarries and set in place with extreme precision. Using the lost technologies described in this book, the Great Pyramid was assembled effortlessly without the unworkable notion of a gigantic ramp. This book also examines modern Egyptology's unprovable explanations of how the Great Pyramid was built and offers a fresh and exciting alternative! Steven Myers feels that the Great Pyramid is not just an irrelevant ancient structure. He contends that the Great Pyramid was built using advanced technologies which need to be redeveloped in our modern age. The most important aspect of this book is the contention that these ancient, but highly advanced technologies, can vastly improve our modern but very troubled world!

Amazon.com link for soft cover edition is:
http://www.amazon.com/dp/1449916155

Kindle eBook edition link is:
http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0045Y26CC

Thank you for looking at the Trailer for my book.
If you have any questions let me know.

Warm regards,

Steven Myers, author of Lost Technologies of the Great Pyramid

Hmmm, Please provide me with one example of a "Lost Technology" that you have discovered that is important and relevant. I have read the above and the intro available as a preview on Amazon....seems a lot of handwaving ala - von daniken etc.

..actually looks like perhaps the entire book is available as a preview....looks like you are claiming that they used water techniques extensively to build the pyramids. I'm sorry but I can't imagine that if that was the way it was done, there are no records of it.....

Thanks.

Why would the pyramids at Giza need a special lost technique more than other pyramids around the world, or structures such as Silbury Hill?

Why the need to invent secret, unrecorded, trace-free "advanced technologies" (all over the world, for that matter) when existing technologies have been tested and shown to work effectively?

Do examples like Imhotep's early pyramids demonstrate early examples of these secret technologies? What went wrong with the Southern Shining Pyramid?

Also, why does the author talk about himself in the third person? (and ending every sentence with an exclamation point doesn't make you look sophisticated, or even excited)

Well, Geoffc it's just that we've been through the Bermuda triangle riding the chariots of the gods and reading Von Daniken and are perfectly satisfied with the scientific and archeological explanation. As someone above said, there's no reason to invent something fantastic of different to explain what seems quite clear and simple.

In science this is know as Occam's Razor which I'm sure you know.

I don't like the idea of something claiming to be science that is pure fiction.

I will refrain from further comment.

I think it's a matter of people wanting to see facts presented factually, and objecting when this is not the case. "If you don't like X don't do it yourself" isn't the answer. "If you don't like eating babies, don't eat any" doesn't do it. People have their opinions, and just being told not to act on the contrary opinion doesn't change those opinions.

I guess it goes back to the whole troll discussion, where people were saying "If you don't agree with trolls, let their statements stand unchallenged." I disagreed then, and I'll disagree now. One of the reasons we have so many flaky opinions out there -- the real tinfoil-hat type -- is that people just ignore anything they don't agree with, rather than refuting it, so the lurkers see it and say "oh, nobody's disagreeing with this, I guess they can't" ... and the tinfoil hats win.

Something I learned a very long time ago: "If not me, then who? If not now, then when?" Can I fix everything in the world? Of course not. But as Loren Eiseley's story "The Star Thrower" points out, I can do something about what's within my reach. If more people did something about what they could do, said something about what they saw, instead of waiting for "them", the mysterious "them" who can fix everything, to fix everything, things would get fixed. There's another one: "The perfect is the enemy of the good." If we disregard doing good while we're waiting for the unattainable perfect, nothing ever gets done.

So no, I'm not going to "move on". I'm not going to wait for it to go away. I'm going to say "Hey, this is wrong." I can't say that about every book that's wrong. I can't say that about every opinion that's wrong. But I can say it this time, about this one. Me > nobody, and 1 > 0.

And of course, the more we post to this thread the more publicity it gets, so even questioning comments all help the author. ;-)

Authors bump their own threads anyway.

Hopefully, people in MobileRead go on something other than the number of views a thread has had, or how many comments have been posted.

I am new to this forum and this is my first post here.
Would like to show you this URL:
http://www.forskning.no/artikler/2010/september/259957

It is norwegian language and I have not serarched for english version.
I hope you can understand what is its message by studying the figures.
Is the story very different from yours?

I did not read your book and may do it if you give me a reply here.
