There have been many books and television shows about how the Great Pyramids were built. Let us start with those theories on how to build the pyramid the hard way: Most of those theories used ramps of some kind.1 Though on the late night talk shows some guests say the lifting of the stone was done by space aliens, other theories say the lifting was done by Giant Cone headed men that hummed them into place, still others say the lifting was done by good or bad Angels. My favorite failed theory was airlifting the stones. We will talk about that theory but even that system was far too slow.
The Long Ramp Theory
The mainstream theories of the Egyptologist use ramps. The most common is the long ramp. The theory goes: that the slaves could not push a huge block of stone up a gradient of more than (ten to one) ten feet of horizontal movement2 to one-foot vertical movement. To build the Pyramid to the projected height of 480 feet tall with ramps, you would need a ramp four thousand, eight hundred feet long of material that is very hard and smooth. (Have you ever tried to push a car in sand?). The volume of materials that would be needed would be more than EIGHT MILLION CUBIC YARDS3. Nevertheless, some construction engineers say to lift all those stones; it would take FOUR of those ramps4 which would be more than THIRTY TWO-MILLION cubic yards of materials5. The Great Pyramid itself only has a little more than two-point eight million cubic yards of materials. But where did all the materials6 go that were used to build those ramps after the construction was finished?
Spiral Ramp Theory
Former professor, John Blaines of Oxford University developed a spiral ramp theory by which the Egyptians went round and round the pyramid until the stone blocks on log rollers reached the top.7 The problem is that those log rollers do not make tight turns. The blocks would fall off before they could make the turn. Unless the ramps were far beyond the foot print of the structure itself which would take almost as much materials as a straight Long Ramp.
Many Fringe Egyptologist say Edward Leedskalnin knew the secret method used to lift the stones used in the pyramid construction. Sadly, No, Ed used a large compressor and tube type truck tires as lifting bags to air lift the stones for his Corral Castle in Miami, Florida. No magic, sorry, a photo shows an air compressor in the background taken during the construction phase –simple but effective– Nonetheless, Egyptians had a much faster and easier way of moving stones.
Aesop’s Thirsty Dog
In this story, the Dog (the common or unclean) was thirsty. However, the water that he was given by the stork or Egyptian Ibis (Thoth) was in the bottom of a narrow container. Making an easy drink for the Dog impossible, Even so, the Dog solved his problem by placing stones into the container, in so doing raised the water level allowing him to drink. That problem of thirst and the solution of placing stones into a water source is the “Key Stone” to understanding the Egyptian process of stacking the stones 450 feet above the valley floor. The Geological records of the river Nile basin and the world wide sea level records (see charts8), tell us that in the later portion of the Pleistocene Epoch Earth was in a time of Great Drought. Even so, at that time of drought, (12,500 to 13,500 years ago) the Nile river level suddenly rose by hundreds of feet, an event that turned the Nile River Valley and delta into a fruitful place for man in a time the rest of the world was in a Great Drought. Then almost as suddenly eight thousand years later about 2141 years before the Christian era began the river levels dropped about the same amount.
The Geological Record of Egypt
Great Pyramids were constructed about 13,000 years ago
The Gatekeepers of knowledge will not consider the evidence that the three Great Pyramids were constructed about 13,000 years ago at the end of the Pleistocene Epoch. To have that date verified would foul up their carefully crafted “Traditions” of the development of Civilization. Verifying that there was a civilization that far advanced would cause “The Traditions” of countless Scholars to go up in “Smoke.”
Even so, there is evidence of just that construction date. The Book of Job places the Great Pyramid construction in a time when Polaris was a seasonal star of early summer, not a Pole star as it is today. Polaris only becomes a seasonal star when the Progressions of the Equinoxes moves that star below the Northern Horizon Circle. That only happens to Polaris once every 26,000 years and then only for a few years, and the last time Polaris was under the Northern Horizon Circle was 12,000 to 13,000 years ago, A time that matches the astronomer, Robert Bauva’s10 alignment of three Great Pyramids with the three stars of Orion’s Belt. Bauva determined that the three Great pyramids have the same relationship in size ratio and placement as the three stars in the Belt of Orion as they were seen from earth 12,450 years ago.11 Even the colors of those stars match the three Great Pyramids, white, red and white.
This one shall comfort us concerning our work and the toil of our hands
These pieces of “seemingly implausible” evidence have been rejected by the Gate Keeper of History; nevertheless, the “Spinner of Time” has locked those pieces of silk threads into place with geological records of The Nile River Valley. Geological records show the Nile River level rising hundreds of feet during a time of World Wide Drought12, a river level rise that has NO NATURAL reason to rise during a time of regional drought.
About that time (13,000 years ago) a man named Lemech who had a son and when he was born Lemech said of his son:
“This one shall comfort us concerning our work and the toil of our hands, because of the ground which the lord has cursed.”13
The son of Lemech went by many Names: Gilgamesh called him Utnapishtim,14 The Aztecs called him Coxcoxtli15, the Central Americans called him Tezcatil16, To the Brahmans he had the name Manu17. This man also authored most of the book now known as the Book of Enoch, because portions of his book were incorporated into the Book of Enoch over the centuries.
All the same, we must first deal with another member of “the family”; Great-Great-Great Grandpa Khunm (Khain) Khufu. The name Khufu meant in the ancient Semitic tongue, “to cover up.18” And in Greek, Cheops means, a well-watered garden19. Khufu built the Great Pyramid and controlled the annual flooding of the Nile River. Now how did he do his amazing feats of engineering, like controlling the flooding of the Nile? The same way the Egyptians control the annually flooding now: with an irrigation dam of course. As Sherlock Homes would say, “The Game is a foot.” The development of irrigation systems was said to be the one of the biggest factors in the civilization of man. Egypt is the birthplace of that science.20 Along the Nile, irrigation was used and Egypt became known as “Wheat Cakes.” The problem with the Nile is that the river is in flood or drought. That is one of the reasons that the Aswan Dam and Lake Nasser were built, to regulate the flow of the Nile
Plateau or Valley?
The Experts say that, “The Great Pyramid is on a big flat plateau”, giving you pictures of a flat land that looks as if that plateau goes on for hundreds of miles, and that plateau does go on for hundreds of miles. Even so, the River Nile cuts a very deep valley through that plateau. Back in the country where I come from we call that kind of thinking being a “Flat Lander;” or what you might call being a two-dimensional thinker.
The Nile river valley is hundreds of feet deep and in some places eight to twelve miles wide then narrowing to spots like where the Aswan dam is now, and behind that dam is Lake Nasser which is the Second Sea of Nun. This lake is very important in the history of the future.
These narrows in the Nile valley are called cataracts. There is a narrowing just up the river from Cairo and then the Nile River begins its delta. That narrows is a lot wider now than it was ten thousand years ago; although just a few years ago a hydroelectric dam project was canceled at that point. The reason was that dam’s lake would have covered the Great Pyramid.

Mankind’s Past is controversial with competing intellectual groups proudly holding on to differing traditions, each field of study believing that their traditions best chronicles the human race’s Past, these differing traditions are each held as undeniable FACTS. Howard West’s hard cover book, Locked Gates, The Riddle Lords’ Secrets stands in opposition to those tradition by revealing contrary subject materials that have been hidden in ancient books, scrolls, geological, and archaeological records. This evidence shows a far different account of mankind’s distant Past and its approaching Future. To showcase this evidence found in the E-book, Locked Gates, West has produced a series of nine videos, the fourth book trailer, Dead Sea Scrolls and the Pyramids, details how the Egyptians used hydraulics to lift millions of tons of rock through the use of the rising lake behind a dam on the river Nile.
