The Great Pyramid of Giza – A Modern View on Ancient Knowledge
The four visible side faces of the Great Pyramid reflect the four earthly elements Earth, Water, Air and Fire. The fifth invisible element Aether is represented by the invisible ground surface of the pyramid, the foundation on which the four elements are arranged, and at the same time, the divine medium that merges these four elements. The perfect metaphor for creation; the five elements, the five Platonic solids. The element Aether is the invisible carrier of all information and can also be regarded as the so-called “God-field.” The ancient Egyptian djed pillar is composed of four individual pillars assembled to form one symbol of strength and creation. These four pillars represent the four visible earthly elements, merged by the divine element Aether. Together with the ankh and the was-sceptre, these three specific ancient Egyptian symbols represent the “divine creative life force.”

Each element represents a sustainable process inside the Great Pyramid, and together they represent the essence of the message in stone that is bequeathed to us. The book ‘The Great Pyramid – a modern view on ancient knowledge’ by Willem Witteveen describes these extraordinary processes and makes the Great Pyramid of Giza indisputably the most outstanding library of knowledge and monument of creation, rather than a tomb for a deceased pharaoh. It is no coincidence that the ratio of surface area between the four visible side faces and the invisible ground surface equals the golden ratio, the irrational number 1.618. Everything on Earth and beyond is based on this ratio and is the result of the congregation of the five elements, the confluence of the earthly and the divine as enshrined in the ancient Egyptian culture. Knowledge from the past will be our guide for the future and our guidebook is the Great Pyramid of Giza. Consider yourself a studious pilgrim and follow the path of the elements, a path which will definitely reveal new insights and change your view on human history. Immerse yourself in the “Science of the Ancients.”

The ancient Egyptians called their land ‘Kemet’, named after the black, fertile mud left on the banks of the river Nile as a result of the annual flooding, which made it possible to farm and live of the land. The oldest part of Kemet dates from a period prior to the coming of the ancient Egyptians and was called the “Land of Osiris.” This land of Osiris was mainly formed by several groups of pyramid fields and temples and stretched over a distance of about 80 kilometres along the western banks of the Nile. A long stretch of monuments from Meidum in the south to Abu Roash, a few kilometres north of the Giza plateau. All these monuments date from the same period and have a common relationship with each other concerning location, construction, function and applied high technology. As far as we can ascertain, most pyramid complexes are physically connected through an underground network of tunnels. Evidence for the existence of these tunnels is abound but is meticulously withheld from the public by the Egyptian authorities. The still existing entrances to these tunnels are mostly covered by concrete slabs as can be clearly seen in Saqqara, about 30 kilometres south of Giza. Pyramids from a period preceding the first Egyptian dynasties are not meant as tombs for deceased kings or pharaohs but are associated with a highly advanced process technology from an early period in human history. A period dating back to the end of the last glacial period approximately 10,500 B.C.E (Before Common Era). All these monuments represent an important message in stone, a message intended for all succeeding generations, including ours. An inheritance that consists of ancient knowledge which is of the greatest importance for the preservation of our planet.
The Great Pyramid of Giza is an important part of the Giza pyramid complex situated on the edge of modern Cairo. The Giza plateau is known for the Sphinx and the three large pyramids, allegedly built by Khufu, Kha-F-Ra (successor of Khufu) and Men-Kau-Ra (successor of Kha-F-Ra and son of Khufu), all pharaohs from the fourth dynasty; a time period from 2613 until 2498 B.C.E; the beginning of the so-called “Old Empire.” The Giza plateau is a higher situated massive rock plateau and inextricably connected with the structures on it. The connection with the Earth is optimal and every vibration in the Earth and the rock plateau of Giza is unabated passed on to the three aforementioned pyramids which are basically a continuation of the massive Earth. Not hindered or disturbed by intermediate ground layers or different stone layers but a perfect continuity from Earth to the massive monuments build upon it. This aspect of connectedness was very important considering the true function of the entire Giza complex which covers a total area of 250,000 m2.
The Great Pyramid plays an important role because of its complex interior design which differs from all other pyramids. Moreover, compared to many other pyramids, it is still in good condition after so many years and safely accessible to researchers and visitors. The Great Pyramid is a library of knowledge; a monument of creation whose secrets are actually in plain sight for those who are open to a new vision and are able to free themselves from dogma. Many scientists and researchers have searched many years for the hidden treasures of a lost civilisation without considering that the Great Pyramid itself is the greatest treasure of all time. Not a tomb filled with gold treasures, or valuable artefacts, but a centre of knowledge and highly advanced technology as a legacy for future civilisations. It is an important letter from a highly credible sender who tells us how to treat the Earth in a sustainable way, based on the specific properties of the Earth itself rather than the use of modern destructive explosion technologies. Leave the dark suffocating ‘box’ in which all seems to be scientifically proven and accept the innovative science of ancient times. Embark on a quest and let the stones speak for themselves, communicate only by means of the oldest and most important language there is: the universal language of numbers and logic, as defined in the blueprint of creation.
“All is number” – Pythagoras
The three pyramids on the Giza plateau are a direct projection on Earth of the three inner planets Earth, Venus and Mercury. The positioning, colour and size of the three pyramids correspond to mutual positioning, colour and relative size of these three planets at a certain moment in time. Together with the Sphinx, the eastward looking lion, we know in what era we have to search, the era of the lion which began around 12,000 years ago and covered a time period of 2160 years. The Sphinx is of the same age as the pyramids and the exact position of the three pyramids in relation to the similar position of the three inner planets reveal the year 10,472 B.C.E. as the year of establishment of the whole Giza complex, a complex with a construction period of at least 300 years instead of the implausible 20 years they still want us to believe. The mutual position of the three pyramids together with the perfect alignment of the Sphinx is a terrestrial representation of an astronomical clock. An astronomical clock which shows us the relationship between the Giza pyramids, the Sphinx and certain planets in our solar system. All in relation to the four elements and wherein the Great Pyramid represents the Earth and the Moon.
The element Water

The first season of the ancient Egyptian calendar was the ‘Akhet’ season, in which the Nile river flooded as a result of the rainy season in eastern Africa. The tropical monsoon climate in central and eastern Africa, with its heavy rains, is the most important water supplier of the Nile river. The ‘Akhet’ season or yearly inundation, between June and September, was according to the ancient Egyptians, the yearly coming of the god Hapi, the god of the annual flooding that brought fertility to the land. This Egyptian god was welcomed by the lion on the Giza plateau, the Sphinx, located at the base of the Giza plateau and close to the banks of the Nile river. Herodotus (435 B.C.E.) stated that the Nile water reached the front paws of the Sphinx during the annual floods, which was precisely the intention of the ancient builders.

At the time of the life-bringing floods, the Sun and the constellation of Leo both rose above the horizon in the east and therefore the Sphinx was also called the “Guardian of the Sun.” The Sphinx is not a mythical creature from Egyptian mythology, nor a pharaoh with the body of a lion. It is merely a lion looking east as a direct representative of the nine gods of creation, who descended on Earth during the astrological era of the lion, approximately 12,000 years ago at the end of the last glacial period. These nine Egyptian gods of creation, better known as the Ennead of Heliopolis, are the mythological creators and representatives of the celestial bodies in our solar system: Sun (Atum-Ra), Mercury (Shu), Venus (Tefnut), Earth (Geb), Mars (Nut), Jupiter (Osiris), Saturn (Seth), Uranus (Isis) and Neptune (Nephthys).
“The true foundation of all culture is the knowledge and understanding of water”
Both the Sphinx and the moat, in which the Sphinx is situated, are carved from a single piece of rock. In front of the Sphinx is the so-called Sphinx-Temple through which the Nile water was admitted to the Sphinx moat by means of an ingenious sluice system inside this temple, creating a natural flow of the water causing a pure vibrational frequency in the water molecules. The Sphinx-Temple was constructed in order to regulate the water supply and to purify the water by means of its natural movements, as implemented by the Austrian forester Viktor Schauberger (1885 – 1958). The Valley-Temple, situated directly next to the Sphinx-Temple, is a very solid construction in order to withstand the massive Nile water and possible landslides, and was used as a kind of control station for the appropriate water inlet into the Sphinx-Temple and subsequent access to the Sphinx moat. The thus obtained pure and energetic Nile water was used as raw material for the most natural and extraordinary “House of Energy” ever built; the Great Pyramid of Giza.
Through wells at the sides of the body of the Sphinx, which are still visible today, the water was further admitted to the underground chambers and tunnel system, located under the Giza plateau. This underground tunnel system was necessary to transport the water in the direction of the higher situated Great Pyramid. An ancient hydraulic principle, called ‘Heron’s principle’ or ‘Heron’s fountain,’ made it possible to pump water under high pressure to a higher level. A large part of the pyramid complexes, from Giza to Al-Fayoum further south, is connected to each other by means of an underground tunnel system for the transport of water. Nevertheless, evidence for the existence of such an underground network can be found everywhere in the direct vicinity of all Egyptian pyramids and even in the immediate vicinity of each pyramid built (or even naturally formed) worldwide.
The water was pushed into the Great Pyramid under great pressure and filled up the lower part of the interior system. Excess water was drained through the descending passage to the outside of the Great Pyramid. The so-called official entrance to the Great Pyramid is thus nothing but a water-outlet, which could be closed by means of a hinged prism stone halfway the descending passage. After closing the water supply this special return valve fell back into its closed position and ensured that a vacuum could emerge above the water surface inside the hermetically sealed pyramid. In accordance with physics, the water subsequently started to boil without the application of heat and the complete interior system of the pyramid was filled with the water vapour thus formed. The system was now ready for the next step in the process, which was the confluence of the elements Water and Air; the influence of strong resonance and vibration on water molecules. Physics with which we are still unfamiliar.
The element AIR
Image 5. The element Air
Sound is defined as a vibration of the element Air or a small change in air pressure, which is propagated through a medium such as air. The number of vibrations or changes in air pressure, per unit of time, is expressed in hertz (Hz) and audible as sound to the human ear from around 16 to 16,000 hertz. Sound below 16 hertz is called infrasound or low frequency sound and cannot be heard, but felt. The science that deals with the study of sound is called acoustics and an important element of such is the influence of a given space on sound and sound reverberation. Researchers and visitors to the Grand Gallery and King’s Chamber inside the Great Pyramid experienced, and still experience, an extraordinary reverberation of sound resulting from the resonance of sound waves, which is not an accidental feature. The dimensions of the King’s Chamber are carefully chosen in order to create a standing wave or stationary wave as a result of the phenomenon of sound resonance. The corresponding frequency is called the resonant frequency for such a specific space or object.
“It is all about sound” – Abd’el Hakim Awyan
Every dimension and location were consciously chosen prior to the construction of the internal and external pyramid, as everything had to be attuned to each other as within a complicated living organism. And to be honest, that’s exactly what it feels like when you are all alone inside the pyramid. The pulse rate of the Earth is still being captured by the Great Pyramid and corresponds to one of our principal brain frequencies; the alpha brainwaves (8 to 12 hertz) associated with the resting state for the brain and dominant during meditative states.
In 1952, Winfried Otto Schumann (1888 – 1974), a German professor of physics, discovered that resonating electromagnetic waves with a frequency of around 8 hertz could be measured in the Earth’s atmosphere. This natural phenomenon is called the ‘Schumann Resonance Frequency’ and mainly occurs when electricity discharges in the so-called ‘closed waveguide’ between the Earth’s surface and the ionosphere. The predominant standing wave of this low frequency resonance effect has a frequency of 7.83 hertz; the ‘heartbeat’ or ‘voice’ of Mother Earth. The exact value of this frequency depends on the degree of latitude on Earth, as the Earth is a somewhat flattened sphere and the formula for resonance frequency is determined by the speed of electromagnetic energy divided by wavelength, being the circumference of the Earth. The average between the calculated and measured frequency for the latitude of Giza is 8.1 hertz and this is the exact frequency captured by the ‘antenna of Giza,’ being one of the characteristics of the shape of the Great Pyramid. The King’s Chamber was built to resonate on a frequency of 16.2 hertz, which is the exact octave or second harmonic of the ground frequency (first harmonic) of 8.1 hertz; the keynote of Mother Earth.
In 1900, the Serbian-American physicist Nikola Tesla (1856 – 1943), discovered that the resonance frequency of the Earth is around 8 hertz but this was not taken very seriously in his time. However, he experimented intensively with this frequency because this 8 hertz-frequency appeared to be a very good conductor for radio signals and thus electromagnetic energy. This resulted in building the Wardenclyffe tower, which unfortunately, was sabotaged before completion. Even in those pioneering days, potential ‘free energy’ was absolutely not accepted by the main financial sponsors of science. Both the Wardenclyffe tower and the Great Pyramid (and pyramids in general) were used as an antenna for receiving the resonance frequency of the Earth.
The supposed ‘quartz structures,’ mounted in the Grand Gallery and the quartz inside the red Aswan granite, of which the entire King’s Chamber is constructed, were responsible for the capture, separation and stabilisation of the required frequency to be used inside the King’s Chamber. The 8.1 hertz-frequency was transferred to the King’s Chamber after being amplified inside the Ante Chamber, in which the sound was forced to travel a longer distance.
The exact measurements of the King’s Chamber made it possible to ‘capture’ the second harmonic of 8.1 hertz as a part of this ‘sound package’ and this resulted in the creation of the necessary standing wave with a resonant frequency of 16.2 hertz; the “Golden Frequency of Giza” (according to the golden ratio of 1.6.18). The King’s Chamber was built to resonate freely and this resulted in a huge mechanical and electrifying force inside this chamber, further reinforced by the piezoelectric effect which arose from the vibrating quartz crystals. This also explains the enormous granite construction of this extremely stress-related chamber and the chambers above.
The red granite sarcophagus, originally situated in the middle of the King’s Chamber, has a resonant frequency of 81 hertz (10th harmonic of the ground frequency and 5th harmonic of the Golden Frequency) and was used for the exact ‘fine-tuning’ of this chamber. When the chamber appeared to be ‘out of tune,’ fine-tuning was made possible by voice-resonating this box, which resulted in a resonating chamber due to so-called effect of frequency synchronisation as discovered by the Dutch scientist Christiaan Huygens in the 17th century. The sound energy is at its maximum in the middle of the chamber because of the physical characteristics of the alternating pattern of nodes and anti-nodes in a standing wave. The elements Earth, Water and Air are now merged in the massively resonating, water vapour-filled, King’s Chamber.

Dr. Andrija K. Puharich (1918 – 1995), born in Chicago, was a physician, inventor and parapsychologist with numerous patents of inventions in the medical field to his name. He was a great admirer of Nikola Tesla for his research on low frequency electromagnetic waves (ELF) in the early 20th century. Puharich was a pioneer in the field of measurement of 8-hertz fields with highly sensitive equipment in and around pyramids worldwide. However, one of his most important inventions, which relates to the Great Pyramid, is the splitting of water molecules into hydrogen and oxygen by means of its critical resonance. This ‘breaking’ of water through powerful resonance is to this day a far from accepted method for the production of hydrogen. The decomposition of water by means of a resonating force instead of electricity, such as from the electrolysis of water. The water (vapour) inside the King’s Chamber decomposed by powerful resonance in combination with the accompanying piezoelectric effect within the quartz crystals. Chambers, passages and shafts were filled with this oxyhydrogen gas mixture with a considerably higher pressure than water vapour. This was the first step in the production of sustainable clean energy. A fundamental principle, bequeathed to us by the ancients by means of an exceptional stone monument.
“Dr. Andrija Puharich has found a way to split water molecules by tuning in to the vibrations of their atoms and breaking the molecules into hydrogen, which could become fuel, and oxygen” – Vangard Sciences/KeelyNet
The second step in the production of energy took place in the two 21-cm square shafts in the Queen’s Chamber which were blocked at the end by a ‘door’ equipped with two handles or electrodes, which are still present. These shafts were also filled with the oxyhydrogen gas mixture, which was produced in the King’s Chamber above, and may now be identified as fuel cells in which chemical energy is converted into electrical energy. The two electrodes are an anode and a cathode from which an electric current starts to flow from the anode to the cathode as a result from the incoming flow of the gas mixture of hydrogen and oxygen.
In a modern fuel cell, the anode and the cathode are separated by a membrane, but in these shafts without a membrane there is a direct flow of hydrogen and oxygen along anode and cathode. Necessary is a conductive medium, called an electrolyte, that forms the connection between the two electrodes. Ordinary salt (NaCl) is very well soluble, and that portion which has been dissolved in water is completely split into ions so that the solution becomes electrically conductive and thus a very strong electrolyte. The first researchers found a 1.27-inch thick salt layer on the walls of the Queen’s Chamber.
A fuel cell is based on the principle of reverse electrolysis, and fuel cells without a membrane, such as the shafts in the Queen’s Chamber, are called oxy hydrogen cells. In these cells a reverse reaction takes place: chemical energy is converted into electrical energy and heat, releasing water as a residue. 2H2 + O2 → 2H2O + Energy. True alchemy as a legacy that is more precious than gold, but unfortunately there will be a high price to pay. Our modern society, in which everything is still about money and power, is far from ready for this kind of technology merely based on the natural and harmonic qualities of our own planet. Currently there is too much at stake for both scientists and economists, let alone individual researchers ignoring entrenched dogma.
The architects of this extraordinary ‘Library of Knowledge’ show us that clean energy, harmonically treated water and resonance are the basis for a healthy Earth and its inhabitants. Each field of science is represented in the construction of the Great Pyramid: astronomy, mathematics, physics, chemistry, alchemy and even medicine by allowing us to experience the positive effects of resonance and vibration on damaged or diseased body cells (‘healing through sound’). Like the American ‘sleeping prophet’ Edgar Cayce (1877-1945) already claimed: “sound is the medicine of the future.”

Which particularity now demonstrates the inevitable presence of hydrogen in the King’s Chamber? For this purpose, we need to take a look at a modern radar system in which electromagnetic energy is directed optimally to and from the radar antenna via a so-called waveguide. Such a waveguide is designed for the fast and smooth guidance of electromagnetic energy of a specific wavelength, meaning that its dimensions correspond with the wavelength. In fact, a waveguide is nothing but a hollow metal pipe with a rectangular cross section, intended for optimal guidance of radio waves with a specific wavelength.
The northern shaft in the north wall of the King’s Chamber is such a waveguide which runs outwards. Its rectangular dimensions are exactly 21 by 10.5 cm and correspond to a medium having a wavelength of 21cm. This medium is hydrogen gas with a wavelength of exactly 21 cm. This shaft was intended to blow off hydrogen gas in the most optimal way in case of dangerous overpressure in the King’s Chamber. Under normal circumstances this shaft was sealed off with a granite slab on the inside of the King’s Chamber and could be broken in case of emergency by means of the granite ball that was found in the lower end of one of the shafts in the Queen’s Chamber. This ball could be released from the outer end of the northern shaft outside the Great Pyramid. This granite ball belongs to the famous “Dixon artefacts” and is one of the few objects ever found inside the Great Pyramid and of which, until now, its function has never been determined. It is on display at the British Museum in London.
The southern shaft in the King’s Chamber is open to the outside and shaped like an organ pipe. The normal pressure inside the King’s Chamber was responsible for the low frequency humming sound the pyramid made by means of this southern ‘sound shaft.’ The Greek historian Herodotus (484 B.C.E – 425 B.C.E.) claimed that he could hear the Great Pyramid ‘sing’ from a great distance. He presumably learned this from the ancient Egyptians as the Great Pyramid had already been decommissioned long before his first visit to Egypt. The pitch of the sound, made by this southern shaft, was directly related to the operating pressure inside the King’s Chamber. In my opinion, both the northern and the southern shaft from the King’s Chamber were never intended to point to certain stars or constellations, they are merely the shortest possible way out in case of a dangerous overpressure inside the chamber.
“The mind that opens to a new idea never returns to its original size”
The book on which this article is based, will hopefully contribute to the perception of a growing group of people; a perception which is defined solely by logic and intuition rather than entrenched dogma. It is never too late to honour and respect the ancients for their amazing legacies. Their legacies determine our future in every aspect. This applies to all indigenous peoples of today as the key inheritors of the knowledge of the ancient world.
Author of “The Great Pyramid of Giza – A Modern View to Ancient Knowledge”
About the author:
Willem Witteveen (1957) studied nautical sciences and engineering, then spent 15 years as a navigational officer on merchant vessels, followed by 25 years as a maritime pilot in the Port of Rotterdam. His background in navigational sciences, together with his worldwide travels to many different countries, inspired a lifelong interest in ancient civilisations, ancient documents and ancient writers.
Finally, back on shore, he is now a full-time researcher and is currently focused on Ancient Egypt and its corresponding connections to human history. Articles by Willem Witteveen have been published in several magazines and on various websites and his English book about the Great Pyramid of Giza, concerning the function of this enigmatic monument, was first published in Dutch in October 2012.
Willem Witteveen’s publication is a gorgeous coffee table book of high quality both in printing and in content. The subject of the Great Pyramid has been highly controversial amongst traditional and alternative researchers and there has been much debate on the origins, the building techniques, the purpose, and the meaning of its existence. To tackle such a vast and important topic and to introduce a modern view on this ancient monument is an ambitious undertaking and Willem has done a masterful job. The book is divided into elements: Earth, Air, Fire, Water [and Ether?] which, in my opinion, is a useful and clever strategy to define obtuse aspects of this great mystery. Perhaps the most vital contribution is the inclusion of the late indigenous wisdom keeper Hakim Awyan’s perspective on ancient Egypt. Hakim was featured in my documentary series entitled The Pyramid Code and people fell in love with him and were so very saddened by his passing. The Great Pyramid of Giza: A Modern View on Ancient Knowledge brings many of Hakim’s teachings to the table, a treasure for all of humanity to now have in the public record. Bravo Willem!
