The Giza Power Plant : Technologies of Ancient Egypt by Christopher Dunn

The One And Only Theory That Explains Every Feature Of The Great Pyramid

Suspicion naturally arises when you read a promo line on a back cover that says, This is the most important book concerning the Great Pyramid written in the last 20 years. In this case, however, it may be fact. In writing The Giza Power Plant, mechanical engineer Christopher Dunn reverseengineered the Great Pyramid at Giza to discover its use. His startling conclusions blow the heck out of traditional Egyptologys rather silly notions that it was built with copper tools by a society that lacked the wheel. While revisionist pyramid studies are rife with ridiculous theories that give the topic a bad name, The Giza Power Plant takes into account existing fact and artifact without having to rely on unprovable assertions. A must-read for truth seekers who arent afraid to consider the idea that Western culture of the 21st century may not be the pinnacle of human evolution and achievement. --P. Randall Cohan

The thinness of these vessels is something to behold. the blocks were fitted better than what we today do with our buildings.that needed fabulous control over the cutting tools that made them. And how does one make ROUND anything." I didn't agree with any of the existing theories. WHY the tops of the Roof beams in the King's Chamber are rough-cut. WHY the floor of the Ante-Chambers to the King's Chamber are acoustically designed. ha ha. Archaeologists simply don't give ancient peoples enough credit. Most of them are something out of silly season. I spent two trips there myself to try to figure out what it was all about. "I don't know.

Dunn has been working on showing how amazing the machining capabilities of the Egyptians was. Egyptologists are not trained in anything technological. And well he should. On each and every point. But what purpose? That we were not capable of matching its features until the 20th century (and then. It all fits. Yet it was fitted together with the precision of a large Swiss watch. It was not an accident. (Including pouring the blocks: the proponents of this focus only on the limestone. only barely .and only in theory) tells us something about the Egyptians. and WAS NECESSARY to making the Great Pyramid the WAY it was made. It has been 8 years since I read it. It is not one that Egyptologists agree with. In the years since this book came out. and how it all came to be. And he rolls it all into ONE explanation. but it certainly holds a lot more water than their silly theories.SIZE they are. and am completely impressed with the evidence Dunn has collected into one complete theory. so when they see something that IS. "It is for religious ceremony" explanations. He has continued down the path of building a foundation that will tie into his Power Plant theory. Dunn explains what he sees. Dunn sees exacting cutting having been done. Why do I say that? Because NO ONE else has ever had an explanation for EVERY feature in the Great Pyramid. The precision they exhibit all over the place is phenomenal. but when they come up against evidence of high intelligence. the Great Pyramid was the tallest building on Earth. I am a Mechanical Engineer myself. while completely ignoring . and how to read hieroglyphs. go to the Egyptian Museum in Cairo and see the OTHER examples of their precision. he recognizes technology when he sees it. what could possibly explain what it could be doing. and no other theory since then is anything more than silly season. many MORE specific parts of the Great Pyramid are the way they are. Dunn has come up with the only theory about the Great Pyramid that I can sign on to. They know dynasty lists. they literal ly blind to the importance of it. and he gets impressed with anyone who can accomplish it. If any of you get a chance. Dunn gives the Egyptians credit for having a high level of intelligence. Be aware that that last 3-word sentence is in itself an amazing statement. Let me tell you that Mechanical Engineers are not easily convinced. and how to excavate sites carefully. and many. He does so. For over 3900 years (maybe much more). They did it on purpose. He has not gone out and published a lot of books on alternate history or alternate science. they have to fall back on mumbojumbo. because as an engineer and before that a master machinist. Can my judgment be wrong? Certainly.

and that feature is made of a particular material. in 1971. I realized that when I'd gone into the Pyramid. Dunn paints a picture of a civilization that in many ways rivals our own. that it was an industrial plant. hi s intelligent analysis. to the casual observer most of what we see is over our heads .) One more thing: Almost 30 years ago I worked on designing tunnel kilns and had the occasion to go into some that were temporarily shut down. It makes mockery of the silly fables the Egyptologists tell us about their ancient ci vilization. Stay tuned to his further efforts. that the priests ran the country and it was all about funerary gobbledegook.

I could never have come up with this one. I immediately thought of those kilns and I realized that. practical people applying their minds a nd infrastructure to building an industrial civilization . Everyone should read this book. YES! the inside of the Great Pyramid was certainly industrial. Steve Garcia Cary. but just as amazing. When I heard about Dunn's assertions about the Great Pyramid (29 years after entering the Pyramid myself). But if Dunn is not exactly correct. not to mention his logic. I'd not had the experience to recognize what I was seeing. he tells us they had engineers. those were certainly not pour ed! I laughed till my abdomen hurt. I give credit where credit is due. Like anything industrial. and Christopher Dunn has my admiration for his thoroughness.the GRANITE and DIORITE .different from our own. My hat is off to him. And Dunn has only scratched the surface. after they had been in use for years. I can assure you he is very close. I was amazed that when I was in the kilns I'd missed the connection.two of the hardest stones.why this feature is thus and so. Instead of priests. and his imagination. I still may not really understand all of what I saw.
