The mysteries of the Egyptian pyramids are continually being unraveled and every new discovery seems to bring more questions. An international team of researchers recently made one of the most astonishing findings yet, about the Great Pyramid of Giza. According to the researchers, the structure of the pyramid is actually designed to resonate and channel electromagnetic energy.
The abstract of the study reads:
“Resonant response of the Great Pyramid interacting with external electromagnetic waves of the radio frequency range (the wavelength range is 200–600 m) is theoretically investigated. With the help of numerical simulations and multipole decomposition, it is found that spectra of the extinction and scattering cross sections include resonant features associated with excitation of the Pyramid’s electromagnetic dipole and quadrupole moments. Electromagnetic field distributions inside the Pyramid at the resonant conditions are demonstrated and discussed for two cases, when the Pyramid is located in a homogeneous space or on a substrate. It is revealed that the Pyramid’s chambers can collect and concentrate electromagnetic energy for the both surrounding conditions. In the case of the Pyramid on the substrate, at the shorter wavelengths, the electromagnetic energy accumulates in the chambers providing local spectral maxima for electric and magnetic fields. It is shown that basically the Pyramid scatters the electromagnetic waves and focuses them into the substrate region. The spectral dependence of the focusing effect is discussed.”
Dr. Sc. Andrey Evlyukhin, one of the researchers on the study, said that they came to their conclusion using all the currently known information about the pyramid, but if there is a hidden chamber that they don’t know about, it could throw their calculations off.
“Egyptian pyramids have always attracted great attention. We as scientists were interested in them as well, so we decided to look at the Great Pyramid as a particle dissipating radio waves resonantly. Due to the lack of information about the physical properties of the pyramid, we had to use some assumptions. For example, we assumed that there are no unknown cavities inside, and the building material with the properties of an ordinary limestone is evenly distributed in and out of the pyramid. With these assumptions made, we obtained interesting results that can find important practical applications,” Evlyukhin told Phys.org.
While this is exciting news, scientists have discovered new chambers very recently using new technology, so it is possible that these calculations could be made obsolete in a few years if even more are found.
Very little is known about the origins or the purpose of the pyramids, although there are many varying theories among scientists and Egyptologists.
