A new web page was created to reveal the secret of the pyramid builders. For centuries nobody knew how the Egyptians could lift blocs of several tons before steel was ever invented. The idea was simple but it took centuries to find it. The mystery may be solved by the combination of a rope and 3 pulleys. Drawings and all the details are available at http://www.pyramind.biz.
The Great Pyramid of Giza used more than 2 million blocs of 2.5 tons each and that was done in 23 years. That means that every few minutes another bloc was cut out of the quarry, transported to the site, lifted and put into place. How could the Egyptians have done it?
Most egyptologists agree that the ramp is not a satisfactory solution. Hollywood's version with slaves and whips is even worse. Ramps may be justified for small buildings but becomes rapidly unpractical as the height of the pyramid increases. Slaves and whips were never used. It is well established today that the work was done by Egyptians who were well fed by Pharaoh and compensated for their labor.
http://www.pyramind.biz let's visitors choose the weight of the stone, the height of the pyramid and how hard somebody can pull on a rope.... The '3Wheel Device' will figure out how many men will be needed and how long it will take.
The last piece of the puzzle is the missing proof. It is made of two pulleys carved together out of the same bloc. Anybody who may have seen it in a museum is invited to leave a message at http://www.pyramind.biz . The Greek historian Herodotus who visited Egypt in 450 B.C. said that the Egyptians used "machines". He is not the most reliable source of information but he could have seen the double pulley.
The purpose of PyraMind is to look for simple ideas that can change the way we live. They are the most difficult to find but they are also the most rewarding. If the idea has a commercial application PyraMind will take a patent and look for investors and create an LLC.
In this case PyraMind did not invent the rope going around the 3 pulleys. An Egyptian did that already 4000 years ago. For many centuries the idea was not in a human brain. It was frozen in the pyramid itself. PyraMind got it out and recycled it.
