Study the Great Pyramid of Egypt and you'll know the sides are not equilateral triangles. There is also a power unexplained by science that can be demonstrated by simple tests. Strangely, this power has been reported to stop when the sunspots stop in their 11 year cycle: one of the mysteries of science.
Let's start with the formula for the shape: the perimeter - P of the pyramid's square base equals the circumference - C of a circle whose radius - R equals the height - H of the pyramid. Use the Pythagorean Theorem to do the number crunching, and you'll discover that the following measurements work well. Pick your unit of measurement: centimeters, inches, feet, or any fraction thereof. Make 4 isosceles triangles with a base of 9.5, and sides of 9 with a pencil, drafting compass, and ruler. The height will be just over 6. (More exact measurements: triangle base, 9.5000; sides, 9.0389; pyramid height, 6.0479.)
Attach a square base to the pyramid to keep it square and align it with magnetic north. Cut an entry in one or more sides of the pyramid if needed for your particular test. Record what you do and the date of your experiment.
In November 2008 we passed the low point in the sunspot cycle. So the pyramid power should be uninterrupted for a while. Here are some suggestions for tests.

## Instructions

### Things you will need:

• Paper, cardboard, wood, or other non-metal material for starters.

• Cutting and measuring tools appropriate for your choice of material.

• Appropriate means of attaching parts.

• Compass for correct geographical position.

### Tests:

1.
• 1 Paper pyramid, Triangle base 9.5, sides 9

Place a bit of raw meat inside the open pyramid, and another piece outside. Observe the flies. Do they prefer one piece over the other?

1.
• 2

Place a cut flower inside the pyramid, and another outside. Watch for any differences in how the two flowers age, dry, or break down.

• 3

Place a living potted flower inside the pyramid and see if it grows differently from another plant outside.

• 4

To sharpen a razor blade align the edge of your razor blade north to south inside the pyramid on a platform about 1/3 the pyramid height. Note how it feels when shaving, and count shaves. Repeat with another blade that was not put in the pyramid.

• 5

Put fruit, sliced or whole, inside and outside the pyramid and compare results.

• 6

Put a slice of cheese inside and outside. Note the drying or the growth of mold on the two slices.

• 7

Place a non-metal container of water in the pyramid for one day. Compare the taste with regular water. Try using the two water samples on two plants, both plants growing outside the pyramid. Extend the time to two days, then longer, and compare again.

• 8

Grow some sprouts in a dish of soil inside the pyramid. Observe how they move through the day. Then place a sheet of aluminum foil as a wall on the west side of the pyramid, and watch the sprouts for any change of behavior. Repeat the test on each side of the pyramid.

• 9

Make a large pyramid with one open side big enough for a dog or cat to enter. Watch the animal's behavior.

• 10

Sleep in a pyramid. How do you feel? Does it affect your dreams?

### Tips and Warning:

• No one really understands this, so any test can prove to be valuable. Have fun, and keep records. The sides do not have to be solid. Only the frame is necessary, but the sides must be aligned with magnetic north.

• Some people have built pyramid homes, or pyramids over their beds. Both positive and negative reports come from such human experiments. You are on your own. No one can explain what causes these different results. If you feel uncomfortable during any experiment, quit!
