“A structure as you described in the story, Dr. Higgenbottom, is not possible without a massive construction effort and budget which I cannot see anyone doing.” Well thank you Dr. M___ but you haven’t read the entire story. As for massive effort and budgets, when “they” want to do it, it happens. Who is more of a sceptic than me? If there is anyone that could be called “Mr. Practicality,” its me. Just read my first detective book. Yet, here I am presenting a story bordering on wild science fiction and we have much more to report that certainly will sound like science fiction. – Higgenbottom described the first efforts to us, saying 8000 people were involved in the initial part of construction. If you’re talking about the design, it is unique. – Sometimes even a quick perusal or investigation can shed light on a subject, and put aside surface news reports and assumptions. Growing up, Pete told me things about the Great Pyramids that were contrary to current assumptions. Not much interested in science, I was still an investigator and got some good laughs when he built a miniaturization of the pyramid. I watched him slice some apple and place it at an angle inside it. The stupid apple lasted weeks instead of days and I’d mumble, “oh that boy.” - Dr. M___, are you saying that we can’t construct a particle accelerator using both accepted and established methods – the circular and linear styles? – There are many who say we can’t duplicate the great pyramid even today. But we do know it would take a supreme effort and expense at the least. The pyramids are an unexplained fascination one has to admit. But they are there. As investigators, I’m a sceptic doctor, just like you. Where did the Egyptians get all the limestone? How did they cut it when the tools at the time were equally hard to the rock they were cutting? Millions of blocks cut with laser type precision on all sides? Where did the granite come from? The closest quarry was more than 500 miles away and no trucking companies in business at the time. The mathematics and engineering would challenge our best efforts. In Pete’s studies, he noted the angles and cut at the base displayed knowledge of Pi and Phi, the golden mean, even before the great Pythagoras lived. Add, the 3 pyramids sit and mirror the 3 main stars of the Orion constellation and so much more. Just google something like pyramid construction and read. – All I’m getting at is that we can make the same claim to a structure built some 10,000 years ago (or more). Isn’t the better question, why? If you read more about the great pyramids, even their placement on the earth is amazing. I believe only a few know why the pyramids were constructed and their full meaning. We think we know why Higgenbottom has constructed this bizarre PA and what he’s trying to accomplish and will explore that question more as time allows.
