There are many people who consider the theories of the leading Egyptologists regarding the construction of the Egyptian pyramids to be erroneous or misleading. This is usually based on the assumption that the ancient Egyptians could not independently build the pyramids with their extremely primitive tools.

Based on their own conclusions, rather than archaeological or historical evidence, alternative theories of pyramid construction have been proposed.

All alternative theories are based on assumptions and have little tangible support, but despite this, many of them are popular. Probably the most prosaic pyramid theory was described by Joseph Davidovich and Margie Morris.


The pyramidal blocks are exceptionally high quality limestone concrete - a synthetic stone - cast in situ, the hypothesis says. The blocks are composed of 90 to 95 percent limestone and 5-10 percent cement, imitating natural limestone (probably made in the ancient traditions of alchemical art).

The construction of the Egyptian pyramids never required stone cutting and transportation from remote quarries. The blocks were not mined, but made of geopolymer cement right at the site of the pyramids' construction. The limestone blocks did not need to be cut; the pyramid builders poured the finished mass into a wooden mold.

One of the characteristics of geopolymer concrete is that there is no noticeable shrinkage, and the blocks do not stick together when they are directly adjacent to each other. While it is impossible to achieve a tight fit (about 0.002 inches) of the 115,000 casing stones originally belonging to the Great Pyramid with primitive tools, then tight joints are easily achieved when casting geopolymer concrete.

After casting for a few hours or less, the block hardens and the mold is removed for reuse, while the stone was still relatively soft.

This is, of course, a delightfully elegant theory about ancient technology. Unfortunately, she completely ignores the vast amount of evidence: the abundance of tools belonging to the third and fourth dynasties, quarrying, and the decline in the quality of the pyramid after the fourth dynasty.

Davidovich says: “A hypothesis is a matter of a complex science that must be confirmed or challenged by qualified scientists. Ultimately, Egyptologists, specialized historians, cannot approve or reject a theory."

The proposed pyramid construction theory does not find support among other geologists for two reasons. First, his sampling of pyramidal limestone was too selective.

Only one specimen of dubious origin was used: Jean-Philippe Lauer said that the stone belonged to the Great Pyramid of Giza. Secondly, some of Davidovich's data is "very confidential", which prevents him from sharing some of his technical data with others.

There are some obvious questions that Davidovich and his theory cannot answer. If wooden molds have been successfully used and reused, then why are the sizes of pyramid blocks so diverse? Shouldn't they have been fairly uniform in size?

Finally, where is the evidence for the existence of these forms? No molds were found or mentioned anywhere, except for the small molds used for clay bricks.

The block stones of the pyramids are carelessly and roughly cut, many of them with well-defined percussion marks. Blocks are loosely laid, often with rubble between them. The stones were clearly not cast at the masonry site. The theory just doesn't fit the known details.


According to one theory, the Caduceus Coil device was used to levitate stone blocks that were used to create the pyramids.

Levitation device for building pyramids.

It was a complex path of movement of massive blocks, surrounded by rows of sphinxes, along which the spiral field of the solenoid, created by the coil generators, acted.

The priests used tuned coils (mistakenly identified by Egyptologists as columns), one passive (pictured on the left) and one active (right). The active coil was grounded to the "Sacred Spot" and used in the planetary energy grid.

The reason modern scientists cannot duplicate this device is because our primitive science cannot understand the energy source called the "world grid." Proponents Hardy and Killick further explain:

The ancients used the "grid" to achieve levitation and worldwide communication. This is why pyramids are found all over the world among all ancient civilizations.

The pyramid of Cheops in Egypt is a coil generator and was built to enter the world network. The main control panel for this grid was the Ark of the Covenant (nice plot twist, isn't it?).

This theory may sound silly, but a surprisingly large number of people offer and support such explanations. Andrew Collins, author of The Gods of Eden and Egypt's Lost Heritage, cites a 10th-century Arab historian who wrote down a folk tale about the origins of the Great Pyramid.

According to this story, the builders hit the stone blocks with a special rod, forcing them to levitate and float through the air at a distance of "one shot." Collins insists that "the ancient Egyptians were able to create some kind of sustained sound vibration that allowed the building blocks to ignore gravity." Although, as the author himself adds: these are certainly legends.


Of course, there is no archaeological or historical evidence that any of these actions took place in real history.

Such fantasies are based on speculation taken out of the context of mythology. However, the close interweaving of a number of legends sometimes gives unexpected and intricate plots.

In one of the hypotheses related to the genre of "hit in time", the architect of the Cheops pyramid is indeed Hemuin (Wikipedia reference), whose origin is not known exactly. According to the version, Hemiun, who came from far away, is at least our contemporary.

Hemiun became the archetype of the "intellectual hero" who brought knowledge to the ancient Egyptians. Unable to leave a mention of himself in the texts, he “encrypted” the memory of himself in Abydos hieroglyphs.
