The Mysteries of the Chinese Pyramids
A report about the expedition to central China, 5-19 of January 2008 by Maxim Yakovenko
1.Introduction
For many centuries China used to be a mysterious eastern land for the western world.The Silk Road was a unique link between European and Chinese civilizations.Seldom travelers ventured to pass thousands of miles to unknown territories where people spoke another language and prayed to the their own gods.By the end of 20
th
century China turned to be a major destination for thousands of visitors from all over the world thanks to open borders and globalization. The GreatWall, authentic temples and green parks of Beijing, legendary monasteries of Loayang together with modern skyscraper districts of Hong Kong and Shanghaicreate unique mixture of ancient legacy and advanced technological achievementsthat attracts tourists to visit this land.Seems that everything has already been discovered and examined in China in terms of archeology and topology by far, however in the center of the country, in the vicinitiesof Xi’an (the administrative center of Shaanxi province) there are hundreds of ancient pyramidal structures of different shapes and sizes with equal faces and flat tops.The first record about so-called Chinese pyramids was made in 1912, when the travelagents Oscar Maman and Fred Shroeder reported of colossal structures observed inChina. Shroeder mentioned eight pyramids, especially he was fascinated by thelargest of them:
"It was more eerie than if we had found them in the wilderness. Here they had been under the nose of the world, but unknown to the western countries... The big  pyramid is about 1,000 feet high (other descriptions estimate 1,000 to 1,200 feet high) and roughly 1,500 feet at the base, which makes it twice as large as any pyramid in Egypt. The four faces of the structure are oriented with the compass points" 
When Shroeder and Maman asked Buddhist monks about pyramids they noticed thatalready in the monastery books of 5000 years old those structures were alreadyconsidered as very ancient and unexplored.During World War II a US Air Force pilot James Gaussman was flying betweenChina and India, his report to an intelligence officer is very important:
 
"I banked to avoid a mountain and we came out over a level valley. Directlybelow was a gigantic white pyramid. It looked like something out of a fairy tale. It was encased in shimmering white. This could have been metal, or some sort of stone. It was pure white on all sides. The remarkable thing was the capstone, a huge pieceof jewel-like material that could have been crystal. There was no way we could havelanded, although we wanted to. We were struck by the immensity of the thing." 
This story about colossal pyramid called White Pyramid was published in 1947 in the New York Times and was forgotten for half of century until 1994 when Germantraveler Hartwig Hausdorf visited a valley of pyramids in central China. He was thefirst European in modern history which shared his impressions and observations tothe public in his book “Die Weisse Pyramide(The White Pyramid). Later he published “The Chinese Roswell” where he gave a little attention to the WhitePyramid. Nevertheless that was the first research of the Chinese pyramids ever done.From that time press and then Internet created many myths around Chinese pyramidsespecially around the White Pyramid. Same time Chinese authorities did not carry outany research of the pyramids and did not invite the foreign scientists to examine thosestructures.
2. The meaning of the term pyramid in the Chinese language
Before we describe the Xi’an pyramids let us consider the meanings of the word
“pyramid”
in Chinese language.There are three meanings of the term “
 pyramid 
” in Chinese:1.
 Jinzi ta
(
 jīnzìtǎ)
is the mostcommonly used.
 Jin
means
“gold”
.
 Zi
– 
a mark, a written symbol 
”.
Ta
atower 
”. So we have
“a tower with golden symbols”.
Hard to say why this term isused in Chinese to describe a pyramid, thehistory of ancient characters is not clear for us. Characters
 Jin’ 
and
zi
(“goldensymbols”) are not attributed to a goldenmetal but rather to sacred knowledge,which as valuable as gold. Therefore wemay assume that pyramids in Egypt,China and in other places are some reserves of important information about ancientcivilizations for all the humankind. Chinese characters refer to ancient meaning of the pyramids. This is very important because language is the key to understanding of culture and history of peoples.
 
2. The second meaning of the word
“pyramid”
in Chinese is
 Jiao zhui
, literal translation is
“a horn for drilling the ground”.
It may seem that this termhas nothing to do with pyramids, but it does for theChinese pyramids. There is an unusual object in 40kilometres from Xi’an which looks like an unnaturallake. After closer examination and analysis of satellite images, it becomes clear that this object islike a mirror reflection of a flat topped pyramid. It looks as though a flat topped pyramid has been turned upside down and drowned into the ground and thenremoved. We propose to give this construction a terms “
 pyramidal antipode
”. For what reason was this deepening made? It’s a question without an answer so far.However since there is a special term to describe this construction in Chineselanguage it should be that the pyramid antipode was an important object of somespecial yet undiscovered meaning in ancient times.3. The third meaning for term
“piramid”
is
 Leng zhu
and can be translated as
 prism
”.Any pyramid is a prism, this also applies to the Chinese pyramids. Theseflat-topped pyramids are widespread in Shaanxi Province. The meaningof characters
 Leng zhu
refer to the pyramid as a prism. These flat-topped pyramidal objects are sort of prisms but the prism is not simply “a solid object withends that are parallel and of the same size and shape, and with sides whose oppositeedges are equal and parallel” but it’s also an optical lens which transforms the light.The author’s supposition is that these Chinese flat-topped pyramids could probablyfunction as huge generators of energy from the sun light and the universe.“A
tower with golden symbols
”,
a pyramid – antipode
” and “
a prism pyramid 
” arethree meanings of the word “
a pyramid 
” in Chinese which have been used for a longtime and written in characters. Moreover Chinese terms for word
“pyramid”
reflectcertain forms of pyramids in Shaanxi Province, for instance: “
 pyramid-antipode
” and
 flat-topped or prism pyramids
”. Besides the description the term pyramid reflects inesoteric nature of the construction.
3. Classification of the pyramidsLocation:
Chinese pyramids are located in the center of Shaanxi province. Theysurround Xi’an from different directions and some smaller pyramids are even locatedin the city. There is a long valley of the pyramids in the northern vicinities of Xianyang, the city which is very close to Xi’an. Stretched from the East to the Westfor 50 km. long the valley looks like a Milky Way.
